“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.”

“Didact is unavailable at the moment…”

A number of my readers – well, OK, ONE of you – contacted me recently to ask why the hell all of the meme bombs and Didactic goodness had suddenly dried up. The short answer is, I am actually on holiday (!!!) in Russia (!!!!!!), and just got back from a...
Happy MAFF NERD day

Happy MAFF NERD day

March 14th of every year is, in theory, “Pi Day”. For the persnickety among us – yours truly VERY much included – it really should be celebrated at about 03:23:53 every March 14th, but I don’t think anyone is particularly interested in...
You know you’ve arrived when…

You know you’ve arrived when…

Most scammers are not exactly known for subtlety when sending out their fairly naked attempts to get you to fork over your hard-earned money to them. The most hilarious ones always involve some Nigerian who apparently stopped studying English at about the 5th Grade...
Life isn’t supposed to imitate art like that

Life isn’t supposed to imitate art like that

Sometimes you see a story in the news where you think to yourself, “the people behind that idea cannot possibly be so stupid as to turn that into reality, right???”. And then you read on a little bit, and you realise that not only are they that stupid, but...

Hark now, hear, the Dark Lord sings

Those of us who have followed Our Beloved and Dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Vox Day the Most Merciless and Terrible for any significant length of time, are well aware of both his reputed and actual polymath abilities. This is a man who has done far more in his...
Let there be carnage

Let there be carnage

No, not the movie, I’m not bothered about whatever Sony and Marvel have cooked up together in terms of a sequel to the, quite enjoyable, Venom movie. I’m talking here about the latest trailer to drop from Amazon’s The Grand Tour, which showcases the...
Bye-Bye Birdy!

Bye-Bye Birdy!

Of all of the American holidays, Thanksgiving was always my favourite while I was living there. It is a demonstration of everything that is best about America, and not even the best attempts of the woke wankers to disrupt it by peddling very stupid narratives about...
The world according to Yakko

The world according to Yakko

Those of you who grew up during the 1990s may remember a certain Warner Bros. animated show called The Animaniacs, directed and produced by Steven Spielberg. As you might expect, given the golden age of animation we lived through back then, with Saturday morning TV...
Happy HELLOWEEN 2021

Happy HELLOWEEN 2021

Well, it’s that time of year again – where kids wander from house to house dressed up in adorable costumes to beg for candy, and where adults get dressed up in genuinely absurd costumes to ask for… well, a very different kind of candy, especially...
Gingervitis treatment

Gingervitis treatment

This one goes out to Dire Badger and all of my other readers who suffer from severe gingervitis – it consists of redheaded green-eyed (I think) Russian guitarist Alyona Vargasova doing her thing: OK, yeah, she’s GOOD. And very obviously classically...
