Quite amazing. Ophelia “crazy cunt lady” Benson is an unstoppable machine. Only days after posting the comprehensive study on her linguistic barbarism, she manages to hork up this fur-ball of incoherent snarling in what is pretty much her standard format nowadays,
stolen “fair use” quoted text outnumbering her “original” words by ~2:1 (124:72 to be precise in this instance). Here she is spitting and cursing about Saudi plans to electronically monitor the movements of their women, much as privileged westerners track house pets. The article she cites, and others elsewhere, are short on detail as to exactly how the Saudis are going to implement this, but it looks like they are falling short of implanted microchips – (more…)

Mere logical fallacies are no longer sufficient to capture the full scope of the collective derangement that pours unchecked out of freefromthoughtblogs, Skepchick and now it’s brain-damaged crack-baby Atheism+. Their cocktail of rabid witch-hunting, indoctrinational disinformation and the nouveau theology of Oppression is birthing its whole own schema of perfidious gobbledygook that defies classification as simply fallacy and deserves its own sub-section in the Skeptics Dictionary – that of logical incoherencies.
A couple, such as ad himinem and reductio ad Watsonum, have been mentioned previously. A broader principle, that of Myers’ law – that what you say to any denizen of their sheltered workshops never has any realistic relation to what they actually hear – has also been postulated and covers the origin of much of the baboons’ general incoherence. Myers’ law is easy enough for anyone to verify by simply attempting to initiate a discussion in any of their forums (degree of difficulty: like falling off a toilet drunk). (more…)

As the old German proverb goes, blood is thicker than water. The cesspit of lies states “It generally means that the bonds of family and common ancestry are stronger than those bonds between unrelated people (such as friendship)”. But often it is also used as a lever to coerce obligation, “this phrase is usually used to remind family members that their allegiance should always remain with their family first, and outside acquaintances second”.
It’s all a rather convoluted way of describing what are base mammalian pack instincts. In humans, whatever way you look at it, the results are always skewed in the same way – the pack does not see flaws that are obvious to outsiders and, conversely, exaggerates trivial achievements to the level of heroism whilst others don’t seem to notice a thing. Case in point: Jen McCreight’s daddy thinks the world is being unfair and cruel to his precious princess that has, evidently, done so much for the rest of us and lets us know in word salad of appeal to pity and bare-knuckle machismo. All sic – (more…)

Yeah. It’s a slow start for the new year. But this is kinda like Caligula wanting to make his horse a consul -
Seriously. It’s like a south American junta pinning medals on each other. Nauseating. And they believe it. 233 votes ::cough::
ManPersondate for all of godlessness.
What a sorry fucking state we’re in.

(PhysOrg.com) — A lot of people who have gone to the zoo have become the targets of feces thrown by apes or monkeys, and left no doubt wondering about the so-called intellectual capacity of a beast that would resort to such foul play. Now however, researchers studying such behavior have come to the conclusion that throwing feces, or any object really, is actually a sign of high ordered behavior. Bill Hopkins of Emory University and his colleagues have been studying the whole process behind throwing and the impact it has on brain development, and have published their results in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.

Early days I know, and it will probably take thousands of years, but where there’s life there’s hope.

Myers’ Law – In its simplest form Myers’ Law states a baboon has no capacity to either receive or transmit information without corrupting that information. In practical terms this equates to there being no realistic relation between what you communicate to a baboon and what that baboon actually hears. This communication loses even more of its original meaning in the event that baboon then communicates a response back to you. Further, when information enters the baboon echo chamber it loses all relation to reality altogether in a very short time via baboon to baboon retransmission. See cunt kick.
Any non-baboon that has ever attempted to participate in the 24×7 dung fights that constitute what passes for “discussion” on the baboon board knows intimately the feeling that they have walked into some kind of Twilight Zone where ordinary reality has ceased to carry any weight whatsoever. This sense of surreality is followed sequentially by amazement, then by a sense of denial that “this isn’t really happening”, then exasperation and finally overwhelming resignation and despair.

The Talking Prune’s desperation to cherry-pick for the sake of confirmation bias is well documented and now the stuff of legend. Of all the baboons, she is the one that most consistently has determination enough to bloody her fingernails while scraping the bottom of the barrel.
This is all very much evident in her current barfing – she somehow managed to stumble across the latest, but certainly not the greatest, outrage from a second tier wannabe provocateur cum1 yellow journalist Kyle Sandilands in faraway in Australia (upside down land for the baboons).
