Sporadic Smart Comment, June 12, 2010

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted one of these, but hey, I've found a lot of weird stuff to post as of late, and now it's time to cleanse the palate a bit.

Let's forget about all the divisive comments for now and view a glimmer of hope to regain some of the unity we once had as a nation, courtesy of Hesten:

Inflexible political comments about "repukes" and "libtards" are ridiculous. They are over used. I'm not offended by a well thought out point or argument from either side. I'm a conservative and I always appreciate a well honed thought or argument even if I don't agree with it. With free speech, we can sometimes learn something from even those we mostly disagree with. Freedom of speech is a good thing.

Thanks, Hesten. As for the rest of you, feel free to say smart stuff as it's free speech. You're free to say dumb things, too, but remember, they may wind up here on this site. ;-)

Solar Storms, Jesus, And The New World Order

Ah, the NWO conspiracy theory. Remember the late 1990's, when the New World Order referred to Pro Wrestling?

That was back when we were all simply jaded and playfully dark, instead of angry, paranoid, and mind-numbingly stupid. Good times.

Now, NWO stands for the conspiracy theory that you see people talking about on the Internet. JJ is a believer. You can tell that lots of intelligent thought went into her thoughts about the upcoming solar storms:

It's going to happen, but I don't thik it's going to happen like it says. The world is not going to end. because Christ comes back. Everyone needs to read there bible because it tells you what is soppost to happen before Christ comes back and if anyone remember the stars is soppost to fall from the sky. as for the 2012, in my eye it just means that's when the new world order ( ONE WORLD GOV) is soppost to be here. Just like there is soppost to be a road that goes from Mexico all the way to Canda, but there's not one.

Wow. That's a lot of fail, isn't it?

I am so confused. Which of these things is 'suppost' to happen? The Second Coming? The NWO? The "Canda" Road? All of these things? Will the Canda Road hasten the establishment of the NWO? Will Jesus rush into the ring and give Hollywood Hulk Hogan a body slam? Is the whole comment a result of home schooling and lifelong isolation by hard core, tin foil hat wearing, religious nuts?

By the way...the road from Mexico to CANADA? It's called Interstate 5.

You're welcome. :)

The Subject Of Religion Sure Brings Out The Comment Fail

The topic of religion, regardless of the specific religion or denomination, invokes strong opinions from everyone. In return, these strong opinions invoke a big pile of stupid.

The Hartford, Connecticut school board is upset because they can't hold the district's two high school graduation ceremonies at a megachurch. This is a tough issue. On one hand, there is a clear separation of church and state in the US Constitution. On the other hand, Hartford isn't exactly a small town. With only two high schools, you're probably talking large classes. Add the families and we're talking thousands of people. Maybe the megachurch provides some affordable, easy space. So anyway, the Hartford School Board is appealing the decision.

I fail to see the issue. When I was a teen, the high school that I attended did not offer drivers' education, something you needed to take in my state (unless you wanted to wait until you were 18 to get your license, and I didn't). Thus, I took drivers' education at the town's only available place, a Catholic school. I'm not Catholic, but again, whatever. It's not like there were priests and nuns waiting at the door to convert me as I arrived every Saturday morning to learn how to drive. Sure, there was a cross here, a painting of Jesus there, but I never for a second felt like someone else's beliefs were forced on me. Most likely, neither will any of these kids. In my oh so humble opinion, it doesn't seem to me like church and state have come together as a result.

Most people can't figure that out, though. Read on.

When M-A-R-O-O-N Spells MORON

Meet Jon. Jon will tell you how to spell like a champion.

This is Jon's clear, concise opinion about the new oil plumes found under the Gulf Of Mexico:

America is 85% religious yet cosumes 80% of the drugs used in the world and you can't figure out who's lying. What a bunch of maroons.

One thing that I love - and when I say love, you best believe I mean LOVE L-U-V - is when someone calls everyone else in the room morons, and misspells the word moron. And not even a slight misspell, like 'moran' or 'moaron'. Jon spelled a word that doesn't even SOUND like moron!

How To Be Intelligent And Still Have People Think Your Comment Is Dumb

For at least the past century, it's been commonplace in American culture (and in other countries) for the existing younger generation to change the language up a bit and make it their own in the form of slang. It's a normal, healthy form of rebellion, and while older generations do not always appreciate it, the phenomenon is allowed to happen.

Then, in the past decade, it's become common for youth to change the spelling of all of the words so it looks like the phonetic spelling of street talk. Let me give you an example, from the charming, classy 187, on the subject of legalizing drugs in the US:

A Funny Comment About The Tea Party

Okay, so I was writing an article about the Helen Thomas controversy, and had to take a break due to some of the comments making my blood boil. So instead of posting something heavy and depressing today, I'm going to post something quick and funny. Then I can get back to Helen, if not another topic.

Click this sentence to read an article about the Tea Party. It's not really relevant to the punchline, except that it contains a really funny, sarcastic comment, one that lifted my mood immediately. I would like to share that comment with you. It's based on the title, which is currently "Gates May Get Lift From Tea Parties". Now presenting, Morningwoody:

I usually get a lift from tea parties myself. The crumpets are just the most delicious. Must be the sugar that gives me the lift.

Thank you, Morningwoody. I needed that.

Science Is For Socialists And Communists

It's also for people who THINK.

Not so much for people who leave comments on the Internet, though. This article about the rapidly melting Arctic ice cap is both disturbing and informative. However, the comments are just plain disturbing.

Anthony is the first to give us deep insight about global warming (by 'deep insight', of course, I mean 'stupidity'):
