Graphics Dump!

I'm constantly stumbling upon weird, random images that I always intend to use in posts, but I never seem to find the right opportunity.  So now, just to get them off my desktop:

Man overboard.

MIAMI (May 31) - A Florida man drowned after jumping onto an inflatable raft and paddling out to the middle of a lake to try to retrieve a stalled, radio-controlled toy boat, police said Tuesday.

Toy boatAnother toy boat punctured the raft, causing it to deflate rapidly, and the 31-year-old victim could not swim, Miami-Dade Police said.

The accident occurred Monday evening at a park northwest of Miami where the victim and several friends were racing the remote-controlled boats.

"I think it was all purely accidental. It's a fluke," said Detective Joanne Duncan.

Alex Says:  Three cheers to the guy who was driving the OTHER boat, 'cuz you know he rammed the raft intentionally.

And what's up with this fool charging out into the water when he couldn't swim?  Must've been really, really attached to that toy boat.

I give her six months.

(Reuters)  Addressing the annual convention of CBS affiliates, [Katie] Couric predicted that the "pretentious era" of the evening-news anchor is going to be a thing of the past.


"The audience is more sophisticated than we give them credit for — they don't want a mechanical Ted Baxter," said Couric, whose last day as co-anchor of NBC's "Today" was Wednesday. "I'm a serious, caring, compassionate person. I hope that comes out. … People want a multidimensional (news anchor) and not someone they can put in a box."

Alex Says:  Well, praise Allah, we're Katie Couric is a dumbass.saved.  No more "pretentious" news, now that the bubbly chick from The Today Show has arrived to save us.  I hope the zombie that is Walter Cronkite kicks that bitch in the teeth.

And just to emphasize the irony in her stupid-ass comment: The dictionary definition of pretentious is "claiming or demanding a position of distinction or merit, especially when unjustified."

Isn't Katie "claiming a position of distinction" with her self-assigned adjectives of "serious, caring, and compassionate?"  I don't think she's serious.  I have no reason to think she's caring or compassionate.  I think she's a self-congratulatory weather girl who has "her serious face" when she needs it.

Peter Jennings carried a suitcase of books with him everywhere he traveled because he loved to read & learn as much as he could.  Anyone think Katie's doing that?  She's calling EDUCATED news anchors "pretentious" because she's a dumbshit.

Now I'm mad.

From an "American Family Association Action Alert!" email:

A liberal activist judge has struck down a constitutional amendment in Georgia which made homosexual marriage illegal! She felt that she knew better than the voters how they should vote and threw out their ballots.

The homosexuals are determined to win this battle. They know they will never win if the people have an opportunity to vote. So they are turning to liberal activist judges to force their will on the people. They intend to force homosexual marriage down the throats of Americans.

Donald WildmonAlex Says:  I signed up for the AFA emails just to study The Enemy.  I never would've imagined how often they use the violent sodomitic phrase "shove down the throat."  Mind out of the gutter, people.

It's also worth noting how badly the AFA emails are written.  The sentence structure is childish.  Short staccato sentences.  Driving points home.  They hope.  Just like this.

The good news is that Mr. Wildmon (Donald E. Wildmon, "founder and chairman," pictured) is incorrect:  The juggernaut known as The Millenium Babies is about to roll over him.  Any and all polling of the 72 million kids born between 1985 and 2000 shows that they really don't seem to have a problem with gay marriage.  Whether it's because of apathy (why do breeders GIVE a shit?) or common sense (why DO breeders give a shit?) doesn't matter–it's MATH.  Wait a few years, and Fag-Hating Codger will be dead.  His grandson, Ike the Leather Daddy, will be voting instead.

Our Day Will Come.  And when it does, my wedding cake will be in the shape of Mr. Wildmon, so he'll have to watch his worst fears come true.  Then all my gay friends will slice into him and eat his cake-like flesh… with a dab of Liberty Icing. 

Little dab, though.  Don't wanna get fat.

Screw yer polls. How ’bout THIS?

(NY Times) - An audio version of the roast of President Bush by Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central rose to the rank of No. 1 album at Apple's iTunes store on Saturday, three weeks to the night of the White House Correspondents Dinner.

Alex Says:  I find that to be remarkable.  And strangely affirming.

What happened to the good memorials?

Filed under: government, gay — Alex @ 2:38 am

(AFP) Vienna authorities announced plans Monday to erect a pink memorial next year to commemorate homosexuals persecuted by the Nazis during World War II.

The planned memorial at the city centre's Morzinplatz will consist of a sculpture and a shallow pool filled with pink-coloured water, its creator Hans Kupelwieser said Monday at the presentation of the €310 000 ($400 000) project.

Alex Says:  Gee, but will people know it's for gays?

The article doesn't say what the sculpture will actually depict.  I vote for Paul Lynde.

In related news, have you guys heard about these steps left over from the World Trade Center?  There was a stairwell leading down from the plaza that saved hundreds of lives, and now they're going to either knock it down or try to RELOCATE this very delicate landmark, rather than just incorporate it into the memorial design.

Good plan.  Yeah, you wouldn't want to mess up that big fuckin' pit with waterfalls dumping into it.  That's much more meaningful than the STAIRWELL THAT ACTUALLY SAVED PEOPLE.

Oh, and that World War II Memorial in D.C. looks like something from the '36 Berlin Olympics.  Way to think that one through, guys.

AyatollahFrom the last Gay & Lesbian Leadership SmartBrief:  "Iraqi Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has agreed to remove from his Web site a fatwa calling for the killing of gay men in the 'worst, most severe way possible,' but has refused to stop a similar call for punishment of lesbians."

Alex Says:  Well goddamn.  Ali-Ali-Oxen-Free isn't kidding around.  Peculiar, though, that he'd want harsher treatment of lesbians than those nasty HomoFags–I think somebody has "issues."  I'm lookin' at you, Ayatollah of Cum'n'Cola.

From the same SmartBrief:

"Sigma Phi Beta's national board of directors has voted to allow transgender members who identify as male to seek membership."

Alex Says:  "Dude!  We can drink with him, then fuck her!  It's a win-win!"

Pet Peeve

Filed under: government, animals — Alex @ 2:24 am

From a Dogster.com email:

"Contact your members of Congress today and urge them to pass the Pet Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act, which requires state and local authorities to consider the needs of people with pets and service animals in disaster plans. Please act now to save pets from the next disaster."

Alex Says:  I'd like to meet the politician that OPPOSES the "save people's pets" act.  Seems like that'd be a tough one to explain to the folks back home.  "You have my oath, as your elected official, that I will do everything in my power to make sure your pets do not survive even the most minor of disasters.  Earthquake?  Dead.  Thunderstorm?  Dead.  Thank you, and God bless America."
