the hollow world

A couple of today's comments at Lileks got me thinking:

Coolness is a hollow facsimile of maturity.
The effect of drugs is a hollow facsimile of joy.
Prostitution is a hollow facsimile of marital bliss.
The star/celebrity system is a hollow facsimile of true friendship.
Political correctness is a hollow facsimile of morality.

Can you think of others?

as if anybody was surprised

in a highly-predictable move, the left once again proves it is intolerant of religious freedom.

Live Long and Prosper other people's expense?

An interesting take on Spock's philosophy.
Not only do Spock’s peacenik inclinations routinely land the Enterprise and the Federation into trouble, his “logic” and “level head” mask an arrogant emotional basket case. Unlike the superhuman android Data, a loyal officer whose deepest longing is to be human, Spock spends most of his life as a freelancing diplomat eager to negotiate with the worst enemies of Starfleet... Star Trek VI... Spock has taken up secret negotiations with the Federation’s mortal enemy, the Klingon Empire, to dismantle the neutral zone and end the military dimension of Starfleet. Then Spock decides the best person to accompany the Klingon high chancellor to a galactic peace conference is Kirk, whom the Klingon’s despise... Furthermore, Spock volunteers Kirk for the job without the captain’s permission. His decision thoughtlessly plays into the hands of the interstellar conspiracy to foment war between the Federation and the Klingons, because the plot’s leaders see Kirk as the perfect fall guy for the assassination of Chancellor Gorkon...
...and it gets better.

After the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special was advertised as "One Night Only", it will play again in a few days. When asked whether the slogan was false advertising, an unnamed NBC spokesperson said no, that it was just mis-repeated.

on islam

two quotes at lileks today:

"no matter how many skulls (islamic terrorists) heap, the moon on their banners will still have an American flag planted on its surface, and they are utterly incapable of doing anything about it."

"Islam: you can practice it peacefully, and many do, but it's not designed that way. Just as you can practice Christianity militantly, but it's not designed that way."

late valentine

first, i forgot to relink the classic "practical valentine".

second, i was listening to online indie music today, and heard several very odd romantic-ish lyrics:
"your lips were like two strips of bacon"
"i used to shower for you, now i rarely bathe"
"love is an open door to a book of your bad poetry"

third, weird al sends mandatory valentines:

(many separate links)

Brian Williams is just speaking his father's language - as always, just like the rest of his family.


On the lighter side, some highlights from #BrianWilliamsMisremembers
