Last Friday a bunch of people from Team A got permits, traveled to a location, and marched around. They were met by a bunch of people from Team B, who did not get a permit, but traveled to the same location and marched around too. Some of the guys on Team A were kinda’ sketchy while others were not. Team B also has some folks who are sketchy and others who are not. Team A had a bunch of Tiki torches while Team B sported an improvised flamethrower. Thus, proving both groups have successfully mastered the technology of fire. Folks on both sides also used sticks and shields. There was a lot of screaming but there is no photographic evidence of feces flinging.
Eventually someone wound up dead and the press rolled in it like a dog in roadkill. They’ve been bored since they dropped the “Russia, Russia, Russia” narrative and were happy to jump on the “racist, racist, racist” bandwagon. As required by tradition and sentiment, they explain this is caused by deplorable assholes who should obey their betters. Also it’s the fault of an evil orange pretender to Hillary’s throne. Apparently he’s from New Jersey and therefore icky.
I ignored it, because “duh“.
Meanwhile, people who studied STEM in college continued being awesome. Monday they did this:
Time for a Curmudgeonly Gem of Insight:
“Nitwits in face masks are hitting each other with sticks at the base of a statue. Meanwhile smart people are flying to space. Just as it has ever been.”
Have a great day y’all!
