Apparently it is crazy link day.
MS Vista causes global warming.
Yep. S'true.

Also: Become a skeptic. I like this to some degree. Personally, I tend to apply skepticism to pretty much any and all input I receive unless it comes, demonstrably, from an expert. Defining "expert" becomes difficult.

Plus, it's just good mental exercise. :)

Someone set us up the bomb.

10 signs you're not as clever as you think.
4. You moralise about the environment and eat farmed meat.

The real inconvenient truth is that eating farmed animals is the biggest way individuals contribute to heating the globe. So if you claim to be green, go vegor switch to cannibalism. Otherwise, enjoy the burgers and stop the pretense, fatty.

That was funny; why were there all these comments that believed it?

I think they're playing along with the farce.

That's one of the best subway ads I've ever seen.

BTW, watch this.

It's my day off. Why are you not enabling me spending it trading comments on lj?

Damn it, now I have to go outside or see people in real life or shower.

You're a bad friend.

I recommend the shower prior to seeing people... that is if you want those people to be happy to see you.

signs that the writer of that top ten list is a moron

Item 6 on that list is idiotic pedantry combined with poor linguistic creativity. "Beg" is a synonym for "ask with urgency" or "to plead". Saying that something "begs the question" when you really mean that something "asks the question" isn't wrong, because HOMYFUCKINGSHITS beg means ask! It's sort of like that retarded question about parking on driveways and driving on parkways. (Answer: 1) You don't park on a driveway; You drive down the driveway to the parking lot. 2) Parkways are ways surrounded or separated by parkland). The question assumes something incorrect about the nature of the words it references.

Item 7 on the list is similarly stupid. The term Dark Ages refers to the European Early Middle Ages, the period encompassing the years 475 to 1000. Compare the year 500 with today. Did they have computers? No. Did they have the internet? No. Did they have electricity? No. Did they have refrigerators? No. Did they have automatic washing machines? No. Did they have airplanes? No. Did they have cars? No. In short, it wasn't a very fucking friendly place to live by today's standards. I sure as hell wouldn't want to go back there.

Item 8's argument is based completely on Plato. Yeah, that's a real great strategy. Look to someone who idolizes one of the biggest morons ever, Socrates.

Item 3's justification is "You have no right to take away my imaginary judging rights, fascist." Indeed. So says the person who in item 1 says that opining about strangers is wrong. The writer confuses a right with an allowance. You can allow someone to do things that aren't right. You can even have certain legal "rights" that aren't ethically or morally right. See the problem of not understanding language?
