Lebanese tomfoolery and cool websites

Five items to shrug your atlas...

5. Strong stuff at Atlas Shrugs: "The life manual of Islam, the Quran, is a document of exclusion, hatred and violence that shapes the Muslim's thinking and behaving. This stone-age document is optimally suited for people of stunted development."

4. Lebanese civillians pull dismembered Israeli bodies from bags, step on them, and hold them aloft for the cameras. Video proof is at LGF. Note that MSM, sans Fox, slants coverage to suffering Lebanese civilians, when it is Hezbollah and the brainwashed Lebanese committing heinous acts of barbarism.

3. Several countries have offered troops for the doomed Lebanese operation, in addition to France. They include Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, and Germany has offered naval support. I'm sure those crack Bangladeshi troops will make all the difference. France is waffling on its earlier committment (that didn't take long). Have you noticed that the French are like the Arabs? They're weak of culture and arms, yet very arrogant. It's a peculiar combination. BBC.

2. Time Magazine has listed the 50 coolest websites. Two surprises: 1) The Shaved Ape didn't make the cut, and 2) they weren't all Che Guevara or anti-American sites. MySpace and YouTube made it. BBC.

1. A new PC/Linux DVR system called MythTV is coming. Gizmodo lists qualifications for buyers as a) You are a huge Linux nerd, b) You have nothing to do at night, c) You love reading lousy documentation and Googling for obscure pages. I just can't wait to get mine. Gizmodo.

So you're now using the term "googling"? A term you were heretofore loathe to use, let alone speak?

The stages of conflict/resolution:

Self Admittance,

"Googling" appears on The Shaved Ape Blog.....

....It must be a Biblical Sign that the world is, indeed, coming to a end.

Watch it, Adams, or I'll send a pestilence to your blawg.

Ahhhhhhhhhh, how witty. I finally figured out what you're talking about. I have never used "googling" in speech or text, at least not that I can remember. That sort of goes along with discovering Google several years ahead of the general public. Then when I watched the great, unwashed masses get so excited about a fucking search engine, years after I had been using it, I couldn't go along with the dumb crowd and say "let's google this," and "let's google that." It's stupid whether it's in Webster's or not.

I occasionally check search engine rankings, and I always go with the largest one, based on the number of pages indexed. Prior to Google, it was The moment Google surpassed them, I switched. But I can't turn it into a verb because people who that are STUPID BASTARDS with LOW INTELLIGENCE and NO IMAGINATION WHATSOEVER.

If words like "googling" belong to someone else, I may include them in this blog.


Thanks for commenting. I appreciate it.

Hey, Long, the headlines you write for your Posts are misleading.

I didn't find anything stories or links about Lesbian Tomfoolery.

I'll have to go "google" that all on my own, I guess.
