Clearly Leonard Nimoy just won.

"Live your life so that WBC pickets your funeral."
 
And, the attention whoring money machine rolls on. They might get a little more kick back on this one than normal.

FUNERAL PICKET ALERT
Mr Spock was partaker of @ZacharyQuinto, @GeorgeTakei’s [offensive anti-gay slur redacted] sins & @WilliamShatner’s hate of God.

I read this & the companion book Winter Wolf & really enjoyed both!
 
Hey, book lovers! Happy last day of February. Inquisitor is available for free if you want to give the first book of my urban fantasy series a go. Book 2 will be discounted starting tomorrow, too.

The cover even has fire to counter the evil cold we're suffering through.

Please share this with your friends! <3

When Allison is asked to play Cinderella-turned-Fianceé at a Halloween ball, the last thing she expected was to be accused of murder. She has to find the killer or she'll be put to death for the crimes she didn't commit. To make matters worse, the victims are all werewolves. 

On the short list of potential victims, Allison has to act fast, or the killer will have one more body to add to his little black book of corpses. 

There's only one problem: One of the deaths has struck too close to home, and Allison's desire for self-preservation may transform into a quest for vengeance...

This is somewhere beyond cutting one's nose off, etc.

I think this qualifies as stuffing a grenade up one's arse.

Hm, this is an interesting idea. It pokes at the notion of transparency for one thing. However, I can see where local instances of abuse could be severe; if we tried this, I would want it paired with general national regulations about the treatment of inmates in prison, and prohibiting the privatization of the prisons as one of the solutions or something like that.

W. David Ball’s proposal begins with defunding state prisons, and making the counties pay for every inmate they incarcerate. In a recent paper, Ball argues that states should take the money they’re currently spending on their prison systems, distribute it among counties based on their violent crime rate, and allow local decision-makers to spend it as they see fit. If county officials want to use the money to fund crime prevention programs, they can; if they want to use it to put lots of convicted felons in prison, they can do that too.
 
When a local prosecutor sends a convicted felon to prison, the cost of keeping him locked up—an average of $31,286 per year—is paid for entirely by the state, not the county where the prosecutor holds office. The problem with this setup, some argue, is that prosecutors end up enjoying a...

Why do the politics always seem to fulcrum at the (U.S.) national level with this and similar more or less contemporary issues (Abu Ghraib?).  Feels as if should've been more Geneva Conventionesque since the league of Nations or something or perhaps just me...

I'm not too surprised. I have to prove I'm still deaf every time I replace my hearing aids.

My. Entire. Life. Long.
 
I'm not sure if this should be filed under #Kafka  or #JosephHeller .

"A wounded soldier who lost both legs in Afghanistan and has had to prove to Veterans Affairs every year that he still needs a wheelchair, will now only have to go through the experience every three years."

Thank you for your service, and have your legs, perchance, happened to have grown back?

Oh, Canada. Wtf.

Then there's the guy who's not disabled because he can walk a hundred metres (or so). Yes, it takes him two or three hours to do it, but he can do it, therefore he isn't disabled.

The idiotic rules some bureaucracies work under... *smdh*

You know, it's like they're doing their best to caricaturize themselves...
 
House Republicans are trying to block the new net neutrality rules passed by the FCC, and are turning a victory for the open internet into an Obama conspiracy theory.

“Dawn take you all, and be stone to you!”For just at that moment the light came over the hill, and there was a mighty twitter in the branches. William never spoke for he stood turned to stone as he stooped; and Bert and Tom were stuck like rocks as they looked at him. And there they stand to this day, all alone, unless the birds perch on them; for trolls, as you probably know, must be underground before dawn, or they go back to the stuff of the mountains they are made of, and never move again. (“The Hobbit,” J.R.R. Tolkien)

But I'll never be convinced to except except for accept, accept I get a really good explanation. (Me)

Most people don't even know what sysadmins do, but trust me, if they all took a lunch break at the same time they wouldn't make it to the deli before you ran out of bullets protecting your canned goods from roving bands of mutants. (Peter Welch, Programming Sucks)

Life has got a habit of not standing hitched. You got to ride it like you find it. You got to change with it. If a day goes by that don't change some of your old notions for new ones, that is just about like trying to milk a dead cow.  (Woody Guthrie)

Farpotshket (yiddish): Something that is all fouled up, especially as the result of attempts to fix it; repeatedly making something worse while trying to fix it.

"I know CNN has taken some knocks lately, but the fact is I admire their commitment to cover all sides of a story, just in case one of them happens to be accurate." (Barack Obama, April 2013)

"And on the third day, the skies darkened, and a swarm of assholes descended from the clouds; and not a person could withstand them, but they were covered in the filth of the Internet."  (+Yonatan Zunger , 13 Apr 2013) 

"I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle that I hardly think any gentleman will deny it." (John Stuart Mill, 1866)

"Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay." (Robert Frost)

"Few things are stronger than
The mind's need for diverse
Experience.
I am glad
Not many men or women can remain
Faithful lovers to the unreal." (The Gift: Poems by Hafiz the Great Sufi Master)

They are facing not a theory but a condition, for that they are first, last and all the time the people of the eye. (George Veditz, 1910)

"Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins." (Carlos Santana)

"Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway."  (Andrew S. Tanenbaum)

"I don’t understand people who dislike reading because I think all that free time means they’re up to no good." (frau sally benz on the 'net)

"Solitude is impractical and yet society is fatal." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

"The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." (Plato)

"It always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of homosexuality. It's like disapproving of rain." (Francis Maude)

"If I Said The Sky Was Blue, They Would Say No." (President Obama)

Honi soit qui mal y pense.

“You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” (James D. Miles)

The Oxford philosopher JL Austin once observed in a lecture that in English a double negative implied a positive meaning, whereas no language had been found in which a double positive implied a negative meaning. To which Sidney Morgenbesser responded in a dismissive tone, "Yeah, yeah."

"People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as 'parasites' fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society." (Jason Read)

"But that's -- I'm sorry, but that's completely ridiculous! How can I possibly prove it doesn't exist? Do you expect me to get hold of -- of all the pebbles in the world and test them? I mean, you could claim that anything's real if the only basis for believing in it is that nobody's proved it doesn't exist!" (Hermione Granger)

To put it another way: The First Amendment guarantees a right to speech. It does not guarantee a right to respect. (+John Scalzi)

So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. (T. S. Eliot)

A well educated and organized citizenry being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and use the Internet shall not be infringed. (+David Landry)

The truth is that male religious leaders have had -- and still have -- an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women.  They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter.  Their continuing choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world.  (Jimmy Carter)

What I like about April Fool’s Day: One day a year we’re asking whether news stories are true. It should be all 365. (Prentiss Riddle, April 1, 2008 @pzriddle)

He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me. (Thomas Jefferson)

Coffee is the best thing to douse the sunrise with.  (Drew Sirtors)

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. (Albert Camus)

I am the light that shines over all things. I am everything. From me all came forth, and to me all return. Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift a stone, and you will find me there. (Gospel of Thomas)

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.  (Mark Twain)
