Oh Look...Miku-Miku Overwatch


Note though, that if you are not utterly appalled by the very existance of Overwatch, then you are probably a terrible terrible person for reasons that I don't quite get due to us terrible people not being self aware. However, some clue to the reason for our awfulness can possibly be gleaned from the following video that lays out the reason some are offended rather better than the people who say they are offended...which isn't saying much.

Two Middle Aged Women Sitting Down For an Hour Talking About Girl Stuff

No, we've not been hijacked or changed out format, despite the fact that the post title is mostly true.. 


It's Christina Hoff Summers and Camille Paglia, two first class minds chatting about the state of education and free speech for 57 minutes. 


I fear we as a society will soon reap the whirlwind over this mess.

Looks Like Two Loudmouths Just Talked Themselves Out of Their Jobs!

Why can't WE have politicians this principled?

Here's Daniel Hannan, a Tory and one of the UK's members of the European Parliament practically asking to get fired.


Nigel Farage and his UKIP party achieved their stated goal. 


As they were obviously something of a single issue party, the UKIP's  days are almost certainly numbered...unless they can somehow diversify their message as has been proposed in some quarters....


...but they don't actually dislike Poles and advances in VR technology will soon take care of the rest, so it looks like they're done.

Well done! 

Hannan and Farage have more extensive thoughts on why the EU was bad for the UK below the fold.


more...

Well Then. This is Just...Awkward.

I saw no point in discussing the lying , candy ass, haplophobic Were-Chihuahua...



However, The Dustbury has discovered something priceless which I am going to shamelessly steal because this juxtaposition is just sublime...






"That's gonna leave a mark. "

Intermission

Well, the last post was a bummer, and I have an exam this week, so to keep something pleasant in the top post, here is a representation of a stonecrab by Jin Happiobi

The Deterioration of Discourse

After a long day of work and school I dealt with an epic traffic jam by ducking into a pleasant Ramen shop in Norfolk. 


The waitress, knows I'm a rightie and felt quite chuffed at the opportunity to needle me on the current Republican nominee, who, to avoid triggering any of our readers we will refer to as Whale Vomit for the remainder of this post. 

Anyway, she was quite happy that his campaign seemed to be imploding and noted that since Whale Vomit was the Republican nominee, we on the right had no moral authority whatsoever. 

Now...it had been a VERY long day, and I was really not in the mood to be thinking about Whale Vomit while attempting to appreciate my Miso Ramen, so I asked her what she thought of her party's nominee (who, in the interest of decency, we'll refer to as the She-Goat of The Forrest With A Thousand Foetid Young). The waitress got annoyed that I would even bring that up. Since nobody in the Democratic party actually likes that individual. 

I'll leave the obvious inconsistency to the reader.

The conversation turned to the violence at the Whale Vomit events and the fellow who had tried to shoot the republican nominee...After looking that news tidbit up the waitress was overcome with the blue county giggles and finally broke into laughter, suggesting that the would-be assassin ought to get a medal, or should have done better and if he'd died doing that he'd be a martyr. She also said that any violence at the Republican campaign events was entirely the fault of those rotten enough to show up to support the nominee. 

Absolutely no indication was given that she thought this was in any way unreasonable sentiment despite this being a representative republic as opposed to a recital of the Lord of the Flies.

My dismay at the results of the Republican primaries is Brobdingnagian, but I can say with considerable certainty that I hold anyone who is supportive of these thugs and would be assassins in even less esteem than I have for Whale Vomit.

This wasn't the faculty lounge or a meeting of the Weathermen, this was a Ramen shop and there was no hint of awareness that any line had been crossed.

Our civics has end stage cancer.

The Learning Never Ends

I confess I'd been under the impression that Papi was just a comic book character and wasn't real at all. 



Still looking for source.
Now I know better.
I won't be eating any crow over this though...out of respect.

Well, THAT Was Tedious



My other accounts similarly needed attention, but not nearly as bad. 

I learned two other things this weekend. One is that the vacuum cleaner has a seperate on-off switch on the handle. So if it won't start when one pushes the big on-off switch on the main body, the correct course of action is NOT to take the vacuum apart to see whats wrong with the switch. 

Two of my upcoming courses have been cancelled by the University. I'm within 4 classes of graduation, so this is filling me with emotions that are not appropriate for a gentleman to express.

Fortunately I have in my employ, this imaginary young lady of low virtue, who is not so constrained. 


Not pictured; The expletives.

I'm not sure I'm supposed to do now. 

I'm frankly still in a bit of shock.

Pinch Me When This is Over

In the latest episode of High School Fleet, our intrepid Captain Akeno has a complete nervous breakdown.


"SECURE THE STRAWBERRIES!"

What follows is not the XO relieving her and taking command, but some nonsense about everyone coming together to support the CO because she's the CO and that's what you do...and stuff...

OK that was a mess.

On to more important things....

With Sena Ingenoh having left the show, I think that Wonderduck is right, the stoic lookout is the secret star of this story. 


To maintain modesty while doing this in a skirt requires great skill indeed.

She regularly sees ships well before they are noticed on that silly thing called radar, she does her job without drama and a few episodes ago she waltzed in and saved the day when....well...there were zombies and she had a couple of supersoakers filled with Zom-B-Gone.  She certainly is the brightest flame in this dumpster fire of a series.

Meanwhile, Captain Catgirl returns. Actually, we find out that the catgirl is a commodore and is named Hiraga. There is still absolutely no explanation for why she has cat ears.



She leads an abortive attack on Musashi using a scratch force of fast but lightly armed vessels  which she handles with considerable verve, despite being completely outgunned. If one took away the whiny whininess of Akeno's neurosis in this episode, there would be a very solid 7 minute or so episode revolving around Hiraga's hopeless action and the desperate efforts  Alas, we had to sit through the other 23 minutes of Akeno sucking her toes. 

Captain Akeno's funk is abruptly resolved via condiments and the episode ends with the crew gearing up for the climactic battle which will be next week...rather than this week, presumably because they contracted for 12 episodes and had put this weeks utter non-sequiter into the show to pad out the story. 

One more episode and then I'm free.
