“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

This stretch of the year, from very roughly March to April 5th, is perhaps the most momentous of any when it comes to making up excuses to celebrate things. We have International Women’s Day on March 8th; Pi Day on March 14th; Caesar Stabbification Day on March...
Something is killing the boys

Something is killing the boys

In what I rather euphemistically refer to as my “spare” time these days, I have been noodling around, out of interest, on Excess Mortality data. The inspiration for this came from a Twitter post shared with me by a friend, from user OutsideAllan, who put...
The fall of the Citadel

The fall of the Citadel

The news has been streaming in since late last night that Ukraine’s military high command has ordered the full evacuation of the “Ukrainian” – that is to say, temporarily occupied – large township of Avdeevka, to the northwest of Donetsk...
At last, some Rushian KAHLOOOOZHUN!!!

At last, some Rushian KAHLOOOOZHUN!!!

As I pointed out shortly after it dropped, #BasedTucker’s interview with The Putin was a tremendous public service, which has now reached hundreds of millions of people around the world. Tucker Carlson has done what almost no one else could, or has ever even...
#BasedTucker meets The Putin

#BasedTucker meets The Putin

The picture at the top of this poast is a sort of Russian in-joke, which I confess I do not understand in the slightest. It has to do with a character from a children’s book series, published in Sweden, dating all the way back to the 1940s, called...

The following post has been making the rounds all over Twitter/X and Telegram, and with very good reason. This is a write-up from someone called Maria Mateiciuc. I have no idea who she is, where she comes from, or what she does. Nor do I particularly care. The full...
That month of the year again…

That month of the year again…

Those of you who follow the righteous path of the Iron God know all too well the horrific spectacle of walking into the gym after the Christmas and New Year holidays, only to find the sacred temple of the Holy Barbell packed with spastic numbnuts, fat chicks in...

Maxed out

The Boeing 737 MAX is back in the news, for all the wrong reasons, after Alaska Airlines AS1282 suffered a very serious hull breach, with part of the fuselage literally blowing out in mid-flight: The angels were looking out for the people on this flight, no question....

The Party Post 2023

Happy 2024, everyone! Let us look forward to another year of great poasts, beautiful women, and (hopefully) a slightly less insane set of circumstances – though, to be honest, that is probably too much to hope for at this point in time. Nonetheless, wherever you...
If you put crap into a sausage machine…

If you put crap into a sausage machine…

I realise I am quite late to the party here, but the (relatively) recent publication of two long-form articles in The Washington Compost is worth examining a little. These days, the ONLY good reason to read The Jeff Bezos Blog is to get an understanding of what Clown...
