The "Civil" War, cont.

Sadly, despite the resounding Northern victory, the so called "American Civil War" (1860-1865) never really ended, as the cancer that was "The South" was allowed to persist, metastasizing into sharecroppers and Jim Crow laws and the KKK and thousands of lynchings. But then this aggressive Southern disease infected and took over the Republican Party - the very party that engaged their destruction a hundred years earlier. Goldwater, Regan, Nixon, and you have today's insanity, insto-presto in just the past 40 years (LOL I'm old). Legions of monsters, breaking down democracy and society across the country in pious fervor.

Somehow, despite desegregation and women's lib and gay marriage and so on, we've fallen under the sway of the Confederacy Risen, the Republican Party, the Southern Jim Crow culture writ large as "American Culture" and proving to be the doom of not just America, but the world.

What madness is this? And how can Earth escape?


LOL America '14

When America burns the world, future dystopian historians will hopefully, one day far, far from now, discover that it was just a small percentage of Americans who managed to destroy the world so thoroughly. 27% in fact. Americans who of course were an exceedingly small percentage of humans worldwide.

But probably not. We're all awash in the doom we bring down upon everyone. Yay!


Vote or Not

Better vote Republican, Grandpa, or else this guy is getting more government handouts.


Godzilla Fan Club

Godzilla was always a champ when it came to the fans. She'd sign anything, and pose for any and every photo - and in Japan of all places!
She also was friends with many of Japan's post WW2 leading ladies.


Real People

Fun fact! Actors are actually real people and not the roles they play in TV and film, though some actors have indeed perfected the art of playing themelves in TV and film.

Also, not pictured, C3-P0.


9/11 lulz

I'm so over 911 I'll make no attempt at commentary. Instead, enjoy these gifs:

Subtle. Tasteful.

And a NSFW... below the fold:



'munk Bombs

Chipmunk on top of the world, surveying you as a source of nuts.
Just checking out the launch. What's up with you?


A question I'm not sure has an answer

Wouldn't a squirrel army be more likely to use old fashioned green, forest camo?

Wait, that's not my question. It's....below the fold....


The circle is complete

A more perfect human awaits. We need only transcend our weaknesses.


1980's Satan Worshipping

Reagan did strange things to people in the 80's.  Satanism suddenly seemed like a valid lifestyle choice, for example.


Redshirt's Lament 1999th Post Gif Spectacular!


1,999 posts. Where has the time gone? So many laughs, and so many gifs. Here's a bunch!
Upper body strength is a must!
Although a gun compensates for upper body strength nicely.
Like maybe a fake beard could too, if you were Riker or Evil Riker.

Regardless, the lesson of the last 6 freaking years is this:
But isn't that always the lesson?


The Future of Space Travel

Since science is boring, and no one is going to make any money in space for at least a hundred years, the future of human space travel is sex. In space. The ultimate in male fantasy.

That'll get the "Dot Com" money flowing.


Weed Trek

That's what Spock was doing when he was staring into his science station blue scope.

And if you get the space munchies
Space burrito.


Working the land

It's hard work, but it's honest work. Tilling the land, bringing forth life, harvesting and sharing in the bounty that is God's Green Earth.

Also, here's a picture of weed from the 70's that someone thought was awesome enough to photograph:
Seeds and stems. Wouldn't fly with today's sophisticated pot smoker.


Are freedoms

Thanks for the long weekend, America. Please try and improve the weather next year.


Rule 420

Rule 420 states: If it can be made into a bong, it has been made into a bong.


Mouths to feed

Catfish will eat just about anything, including you, if they had the chance.


Remember the Titans

Titan = not just another Ice Moon.

Stunning doesn't do it justice.
That's Dione, FYI.


So much light

4, yes. And here?
Each speck a galaxy, some nearly as old as the universe, hundreds of billions of them, all looking something like
Each galaxy containing billions of stars, and each star powered by fusion - the collision of atoms which produces just about everything.

Some of this we call light, and bless it with sight, and are defined by it.


4 Lights!

I apologize for the last post. Let's forget it ever happened.

Oh, and Happy Belated Captain Picard Day!

Make it so, yo.
