Comments By Justin Bieber Fans Will Make Your Brain Hurt

What? You didn't think I was going to talk about politics, wars and disasters every day, did you?

The truth is, anyone who is alive in the free world today cannot go anywhere on the Internet without being bombarded not only by Justin Bieber news, but by his legions of tween fans. So much so, in fact, that they have almost constantly kept The Bieb as a trending topic (or two or three) on Twitter. This went on until Twitter saw that non-Bieber fans were ready to have a fit over it, and decided to stop the insanity.

More Dumb Comments About The Gulf Oil Leak

Hey, remember earlier this week when I shared some dumb comments about the Russian mine blast? Of course not, because when I posted that article, the site was still under construction, and not open to the public. So, here you go. Have a read. This article will be here when you get back.

That was fun, wasn't it? Did you like the comment about the oil rig being attacked by terrorists? Yeah, me too. Tinfoil hat (conspiracy) theories are funny, but the people who talk about them day and night on the Internet are even funnier.

Now, it's several days later. Obviously, the Gulf of Mexico has been made into a giant cluster[rhymes with truck] thanks to this business with the oil rig leak. And with that, comes more time for people to put on their tinfoil hats.

And Now For Something A Little Different

This is what's known as a 'quickie'.

Quickies are what happens when I've had a full day and I'm just too tired to go in depth over someone's dumb ass comment. But I still want to give you something. So here you go.

Republicans Pick Tampa, FL for 2012 Convention

There were just too many repeatable comments to list here. Feel free to quote, point and laugh in this site's own comments section.

See? It's lazy, but it's something. Good night.

People Take The Flying Spaghetti Monster Way Too Seriously

I love how bent out of shape some folks get over the joke religion of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. A guy named Jason read an article about the Pope admitting that yes, the Catholic Church is rife with disgusting pedophiles and must be cleansed. It's truly an awful, heavy subject, and my heart goes out to anyone who was a victim of these supposed trustworthy figures. Anyway, Jason must have seen the tinfoil hat argument going on underneath the article about the New World Order, and his brain began to hurt from all the stupid. So, like any normal person, he decided to change the mood and maybe even inject a little light into a subject that is anything but:

Is He Dieing?

One of my favorite educational organizations is RIF, which stands for Reading Is Fundamental. When I was a child, there was no Internet or cable TV (OK, we had HBO; but only for six hours, late at night), so when there was nothing on one of the six or seven TV channels, we read books. I belonged to a book of the month club through a RIF program at my school, so I learned from an early age that reading is not only fundamental, it's also fun.

It also makes you look a lot less like a freaking idiot when you leave comments on the Internet.

Take Skylar, who is an example of what happens when you read halfassedly. Skylar read an article about Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of US Vice President Joe Biden. Attorney General Biden, 41, is in the hospital this morning for some unspecified reason. Reportedly, he is awake, alert, and able to carry on a conversation just fine. Update: More news has come in about this since the article was first published. See the addendum at the end of the article.

Anyone can deduce from this that we have here a relatively young, healthy person having what is probably a minor problem checked out and treated. After all, as Attorney General he has a sweet insurance plan, right?

But We Wanted A HOT Supreme Court Justice!!! :(

Women. I'm not one, but I see that even in the United States in 2010, it's not easy to be one. Just ask Solicitor General Elena Kagan, who on May 9 was reported to be the next nominee to serve on the United States Supreme Court. Regardless of your political leanings, the process of selecting a new Supreme Court Justice is always history in the making. Over the centuries, such events have prompted passionate, intelligent discourse from the halls of Congress to the Average Joe's dining room.

Until, that is, the Internet got into the hands of the masses.

Since then, things have gotten a little...what's the nicest way to say it?...dumbed down when it comes to the subject matter.

Earthquake = RAPTURE!!!!!

No, really. That's what everyone's saying.

It MUST be true!

Every time there is a natural disaster, people tend to cream their jeans over the rapture. Surely, this must be the End of Days. And if not this natural disaster, then surely the next one. Or the next one.

Nah, it'll be the time after that. I PROMISE!

The May 9 magnitude 7.4 quake in Indonesia is no exception, of course. No matter that there have been far worse quakes in the past, or that a 7.4 in Indonesia is more or less a regular occurrence.
