Monday morning fooling about

by | Apr 1, 2024 | Mondays | 7 comments

Ah, the return of Monday – right when we’d all gotten used to the long weekend. (Fortunately, for me, at least, it is still a day off today – and I probably ought to be doing something better with my time than putting together this gigantiferous pile of stuff…) Today is, of course, a highly unusual Monday, because it is April 1st, and that is the best day for the worst jokes.

So, without further ado, here are LOTS of stupid jokes to get the Great Mondaydact Browser Fooler off to the right start.


#BasedTucker is Based

That interview is genuinely very, very hard to watch. The callousness and total lack of respect that the Fake Administration has shown to the families of those who lost sons in Afghanistan, during the evacuation of Kabul, is shocking. It is also completely in line with the Fake President’s character.


Dawn of Battle

The Male Brain has lots to keep us entertained in the wake of the Easter long weekend. We start with a thought-provoking video from Economics Explained about Canuckistan, which is trying to solve its long-standing population problems by basically importing India:

That is working about as well as you might imagine – which is to say, Canada is turning into India, a country where cows roam in the streets and people shit in them, and where disease, poverty, and stupidity all run rampant.

It just goes to show – if you invade the Third World, one day you will import the Third World, and eventually you will become the Third World.

The world’s busiest bald YOOTOOBER looks at countries that will likely disapporate in the future, through his Sideprojects, uh, side project:

Interestingly, I don’t think he touched on the FUSA – or Israel. Both of which are virtually certain to cease to exist, if they continue on their present courses.

Also, Simon got a LOT of stick in the comments for his mistakes about Belgium, so take it with a heaping helping of salt.

Sabine Hossenfelder explains how much energy AI really consumes – if you thought Bitcoin-mining was energy-intensive, just wait until you realise how much power it takes to run a full GPT farm:

The tl;dw version is, if SkyNet DOES become sentient and takes over the world, it’ll power off within minutes, because there literally isn’t enough energy being produced right now for artificially intelligent whatchamacallums to run properly.

Modern Intuitionist tells you how to overcome life’s difficulties by thinking of it all as one giant open-world RPG:

Next time you run into someone looking all jacked-up on goofballs and ready to take on a quest, just use the immortal line from Skyrim about how you used to be an adventurer, before you took an arrow to the knee…

Honest Ads takes on this weird American tradition called “March Madness”:

I will be honest (see what I did there?) and admit that, even after having lived in Amerikhastan for 12 years, I never understood this silly nonsense, and probably never will.

Moon asks a very pertinent question about the homelessness crisis sweeping across the FUSA (and much of the Western world):

This is what happens when you create an economy based entirely on credit – the true owners of wealth stop being those who own productive assets, and start being those who RENT assets.

Black Pigeon Speaks explains how a single Russian Tsirkon or Kinzhal, planted right in the heart of the City of London, would cause the entire Western world to collapse, literally overnight:

He is 100% correct about this. Russia has unstoppable power in its hands, which its leaders very wisely do not use – not because they are weak or stupid, but because they know DAMNED WELL what would happen if they are ever provoked to the point of needing to wipe every European capital off the map.


Mind-Expanding Drugs

This week’s General Knowledge corner comes from Dawn Pine, and is all about the shibboleth of “maximising shareholder value” – which, if you actually study business, turns out to be a spectacularly dumb idea indeed, because it prioritises short-term pops in stock value over long-term investments and wealth-building:

Дед Сварливый Говорит!

Grandpa Grumpuss grumps, grumpily, about the gang-rape of Serbia by the collective West in 1999 – we saw the 25th anniversary of that horror last week – and points out how it led to the SMO of today:

I have been to Belgrade, and I know from first-hand experience that Serbia has never recovered from the trauma it experienced from the NATO bombing campaign. There are entire stretches of the city which have never really been rebuilt. You can still see the gaping holes left by the bombs on some buildings – even in the city centre.

The stupidest part is, NATO never actually seriously damaged the Serbian ARMY. They managed to wipe out most of the Serbian Air Force and air defence – much of which was severely obsolete by that point – but NATO lost at least one F-117 “stealth fighter” (actually a bomber) to 1970s-era Soviet technology. And they only stopped that 79-day atrocity because they ran out of bombs.

That should have been the first warning sign to the collective West of its total inability to wage successful war, even when leveraging its greatest strengths – air and naval power – and even against a relatively weak opponent.

But NATO did not learn. Drunk on power and filled with blinding arrogance, led by globalist elites, they lurched from one catastrophe to another. For the past 25 years, the NATO powers have expanded right up to Russia’s borders, while launching endless “savage wars of peace” to spread freedumb and dumbocracy to all the worst hellholes in the world.

Look how that turned out. Afghanistan. Iraq. Libya. Syria. Somalia. Ukraine. And so on and so forth.

Manly Men of Manliness

Terrence Popp tackles the lack of slap-and-tickle after you say “I do” – which is a horrible thing:

Let’s be very, very clear about this:

A wife has a DUTY to provide sex to her husband.

There is NO reasonable interpretation of the covenant of marriage that permits a wife to deny her husband access to sex.

That is not merely MY opinion, either:

Oh, are you offended by that? Then answer this question:

What is the purpose of marriage?

Procreation, conception, and childbirth. The continuation of a genetic line.

And procreation requires sexual access. The only way we have right now for men to reproduce, is through sex with a woman.

There is a corollary to this, which is in some ways even more profound.

Why does marriage make sense?

Because it provides a bridge between otherwise completely incompatible evolutionary strategies.

Women seek resources and protection, because childbirth and child-rearing is extremely costly for them, in terms of time and energy. Therefore, a woman seeks out the highest-status male she can find, to lock him down for the long-term security of her progeny.

Men seek to spread their genetic material as far and wide as possible, because historically, most men died long before they ever reproduced. Therefore, a man seeks out sex with lots of women.

Marriage bridges these two requirements, by matching one man’s resources with one woman’s sexual access.

By definition, if a woman does not uphold her part of the bargain, neither should a man.

And, since feminists hate the idea that a wife MUST provide sexual access to her husband, we should point out the flip side as well:

A husband MUST also provide sex to his wife.

It’s right there in black and white (so to speak) in the pages of the Good Book. I’m not making this up. We are not Izzlamists, who argue that women should be punished by being YEETED out of the marriage bed. The T&Cs are absolutely clear on this subject.

Bottom line: a woman who refuses sex to her husband, is a failure as a wife.

Reading Too Much Into Things

Your Science is F***ing Weird moment of the week involves 3D printing of corneal replacement structures, and honestly, it is quite neat:

Corneal transplantation constitutes one of the leading treatments for severe cases of loss of corneal function. Due to its limitations, a concerted effort has been made by tissue engineers to produce functional, synthetic corneal prostheses as an alternative recourse. However, successful translation of these therapies into the clinic has not yet been accomplished. 3D bioprinting is an emerging technology that can be harnessed for the fabrication of biological tissue for clinical applications. We applied this to the area of corneal tissue engineering in order to fabricate corneal structures that resembled the structure of the native human corneal stroma using an existing 3D digital human corneal model and a suitable support structure. These were 3D bioprinted from an in-house collagen-based bio-ink containing encapsulated corneal keratocytes. Keratocytes exhibited high cell viability both at day 1 post-printing (>90%) and at day 7 (83%). We established 3D bio-printing to be a feasible method by which artificial corneal structures can be engineered.


Your long read of the week is from Big Serge, and consists of the public part of a long article he wrote recently on the changes in operational and strategic doctrine in the USSR and the West in the wake of WWII and the dawn of the Atomic Age:

The transition from the end of the Second World War to the beginning of that peculiar global security dilemma which we call the Cold War is often poorly understood or even glossed over – obviously, the entire history of the late 1940’s is beyond the purview of our interest in the history of maneuver doctrine and operations, but a skeletal recollection may still be useful.

The beginning of the Cold War, as such, can probably be best identified as a sequence of events in 1948 and 1949, which together represented the breakdown of the post-war Soviet-American cooperation in Europe and the consolidation of the power blocs that would characterize the Cold War. In those intervening years after the end of the Second World War, the United States and the Soviet Union undertook a series of actions designed to consolidate their positions in Europe according to the postwar settlement.

These actions took the form of both direct influence and attempts to exclude the other party from the appropriate sphere. The United States, for example, rehabilitated and integrated Western European economies under the Marshall plan while the USSR forbade eastern bloc countries from participating, fearing American economic and political penetration into its satellites. While the USSR reconstituted governments in Eastern Europe into Soviet style communist political monopolies, communists were ejected from governments in France and Italy. There was thus a certain degree of symmetry as both the USSR and the United States consolidated the two spheres of Europe, creating a sharp split down the spine of the continent.

The situation continued to spiral, with the United States intervening in Greece in 1947 to prevent a communist takeover, a 1948 Soviet-backed coup by communists in Czechoslovakia, and the subsequent Soviet abandonment of the Allied Control Council (in effect ending the primary post-war joint body for administration in occupied Germany). The culminating point of all this was an attempted communist putsch in Berlin, followed by the infamous Soviet blockade of the German capital and the Berlin airlift in the winter of 1948. It is not a coincidence that the formation of NATO on April 4 coincided with the closing weeks of the Berlin blockade and the collapse of the Allied Control Council. The formation of a formal American military bloc in Western Europe was the natural culmination of a security situation that had deteriorated with alarming speed. The Soviet Union predictably followed with the Warsaw Pact a few years later. The Cold War was on.

What matters most for our purposes, of course, is not this whirlwind sequence of events or even the breakneck bifurcation of postwar Europe into Soviet and American spheres. What is interesting to us is the fact that the onset of the Cold War presented the United States with a novel problem, namely how to plan for and think about a future war on the European Continent against the Soviet-led forces of the Warsaw Pact. This was, in fact, a very new position for the United States, which for most of its existence had maintained a relatively skeletal officer corps that did not think deeply about operations, or military doctrines at all.

The American Army had always been most unlike its European counterparts, spending most of its life as a border constabulary in the expanding American West. It was certainly nothing like, say, the Prusso-German Officer Corps, which was accustomed over the decades to theorizing, debating, planning, and simulating ad nauseum. While all the major continental armies spent the 1930’s thinking deeply about armored warfare and doctrinal concepts, the US Army had no armored force at all, and the simple field regulations issued to officers had nothing to say about the matter. It was not until 1941 (after the German campaigns in Poland, France, and the invasion of the Soviet Union) that the US Army conducted its first ever operations scaled mechanized field maneuvers.

The difference between the pre and post World War Two American security dispositions could not have been more stark, therefore. While the pre-war army thought very little about continental warfare in a systemic or doctrinal way, the US Army in the Cold War was frequently preoccupied with theorizing about a future European war against the Soviet bloc. While prewar America was secure in its latent industrial power and the strategic depth provided by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, postwar America remained forward deployed in both hemispheres. Central European lands that had once been the stomping ground of Prussian and French armies now became an American security fixation.

Matters were further complicated by the entirely novel kinetic additive of atomic weapons, which gave frightening new capabilities and an uncertain use case. Throughout the cold war, both the USSR and the USA would be constantly assessing and reassessing both theirs and the other’s willingness to use nuclear weaponry, and this in turn fed assumptions about how a ground war in Europe would be fought.

America’s atomic monopoly did not last very long in absolute terms, but it nevertheless shaped the base of Cold War military thinking. In the years leading up to the Soviet Union’s first successful atomic test in 1949, there were many assumptions made about the security that the west could derive from the American nuclear monopoly (including, most fantastically, Bertrand Russell’s call for a preemptive nuclear attack on the Soviet Union). All of these assumptions were shattered by the speed at which the USSR was able to demonstrate its own atomic powers.

Paradoxically, however, the Soviet Union’s 1949 atomic test did not ameliorate Soviet insecurities in the short term. This was because, although the test was an important milestone and show of force, the USSR was not able to immediately convert the test into use-ready atomic weaponry. In fact, the Soviet Air Force did not take delivery of operational atomic bombs until 1954. This meant nearly a full decade of acute atomic vulnerability which strongly shaped Soviet strategic sensibilities.

The upshot of all this was that America’s atomic monopoly lasted much shorter than the United States had originally hoped and anticipated, but much too long for Moscow’s comfort. The security of the early atomic monopoly allowed the United States to rapidly demobilize its armies; simultaneously, the Soviet Union hoped to lean on vastly superior conventional forces as a counterposition to the American nuclear arsenal, and those same gargantuan conventional forces deepened the sense of crippling insecurity in Western Europe.

Buakaw, of course, came back the next year and flattened Souwer in the rematch. The two of them met repeatedly over the years, and Buakaw should have won all of them – but, again, JUDGES ARE ASSHOLES.

OK, that’s all, boys, back to work (or, in my case, holidaying).

    It’s not that a ton of Christians actually think they don’t need a church.

    It’s that we are crazy enough to actually LOOK at the doctrine of most churches, where you see the minions of satan as lions prowling around a herd looking for a weak outlier, we look at the herd itself and see nothing but wolves in sheep’s clothing as far as the eye can see.

    There is ONE book. The Bible. Christians follow the doctrines of the New Testament alone. That is the definition of ‘Christain’. Where the new and old testament conflict, we choose the new.

    That is the ONLY book inspired by god. The rest of the doctrines of the churches, even if they are written by good men like Saint Francis, are OPINION. And any opinion on the nature of God is almost universally wrong, often proven wrong by the nature of reality, the nature of god’s creation, itself.

    And yet EVERY organized religion is filled with these satan-inspired ‘alterations’ and ‘add-ons’ that are nothing more than corruption. From the concept of the ‘Trinity’ that DIRECTLY contradicts Jesus’ own words, and encourages Christians to worship Jesus like the Golden Calf, to the satanic ‘Zionism’ and worship of Talmudic black-magician Pharisees that directly denied and murdered Christ, treating them like some kind of divine prophets and ‘Jerusalem’ like it’s more Holy than God himself.

    From Jehovah’s Witnesses who create an entire doctrine out of a single line taken out of context (turn the other cheek) to Mormons who invent entirely new books. From symbolic cannibalism of Catholics who have literally created an entire form of Christianity that worships saints instead of God, to churches that encourage every possible sin, from pedophilia and homosexuality to female priests who scream about men and bicycles and try to claim Jesus was an immigrant so we have to let foreign monsters invade our home and rape and murder our daughters.

    I’d rather take my chances running from the lions of Satan than go to sleep surrounded by the wolves dressed up in the bloody skins of ‘the faithful’ and pray that they protect me.

    Find me a Chruch that actually pays attention to the bible, and reads it IN CONTEXT instead of just throwing out lines with numbers to try and prove points the same way Congress uses the constitution’s ‘commerce clause’ to justify any tyranny, and I will be happy to have a safe haven. But so far, I am not willing to trade my soul for the imaginary safety of numbers.

      Category error. The church is not a building or a specific gathering at a time and place. She is the bride of Christ, she is the body and he is the head, she is the collective of Christ Disciples. She is the home of encouragement, exhortation, and prophesy. She is the place of personal instruction, heart healing, chain breaking fellowship. In her the Christian is born again, baptized in blood, water, and spirit. We make space for communion with one another and are zealous for good works.

      Some follow Apollos and others follow Cephas is of little importance. The Church follows Jesus. Don’t pursue the trappings of man nor draw your focus against them. Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, and you will find the Church among those you find yourself laboring alongside.

      Like all great quest fellowships, you don’t start with the entire party. You grow as the quest progresses.

      Godspeed brother, find your zebras.

    Sporty Ball watchers, are just circus watchers (luckily the bread is still somewhat available…?). Most of sporty ball is about gambling, hence the “popularity”. Since I don’t gamble, I don’t watch. I did watch plenty of sporty ball before marriage and children, which was a waste of time. Now, not so much. Mostly just bored watching it and I can do other productive things with my precious time. I loved watching my kids compete in sports, didn’t care if they won or lost. I would always ask at the end of the contest if they had fun playing? I usually received a response of yes (granted the won-loss outcome would influence their mood response). Loved every moment watching them compete always brought a smile to my face.

      you could kind of see the Ghostbusters crew trying to round up the tongues of fire on everyone’s head at Pentecost, that would weird people out. but most people who met Jesus post-resurrection didn’t think there was anything wrong about him until he started jamming their hand into the spear wound.
