I love Xah Lee

I've always kinda lurked in usenet but for the last 6-7 months or so I've been lurking in comp.lang.lisp (it's a programming language). A frequent poster is this nutjob named Xah Lee.

His posts are horrible. They add nothing to the discussion, they are filled with the most insane boasting, and they make no sense whatsoever. But I love them. They are usenet car wrecks.

Here is Xah Lee's site. It's fucking insane.

Fuck you Dave Thomas

Ruby on Rails Dave Thomas(not Wendy's Dave Thomas):

The fact that you don't have have any of the options for date formatting in your Programming Ruby is a fucking letdown. Sort of like your book. You treat Ruby like a glorified version of Perl, ignoring most of the closure goodness.

So fuck you. And for good measure, fuck you David Heinemeier Hansson. I hate your fauxhawk and your framework still sucks. The only reason it's been adapted at all is that it sucks less than other action-based frameworks out there.


The date formatting stuff is at the back of Programming Ruby....doh!

American Gladiators is back on TV?

Oh my God is it 1990 all over again does this mean I have to listen to Vanilla Ice? Has TV really gotten that bad? Don't people have anything better to do than watch this crap, they're all fat but watching 'roid freaks on TV? I can't wait to see the XXL sized Halloween costumes for your fat spawn.

I've got a little brother's girlfriend staying at my house the next couple of weeks....she had the local Fox station's 9:00 news on when I got home last night. Shit. It's almost worse than the 'Roiders back on TV. The local news is one big advertisement for American Idol and MySpace....meanwhile, on PBS at least, there was a Frontline episode discussing the role of Dick Cheney in expanding the power of the executive branch. Interesting. Why isn't this on the news?

I never watch TV anymore('cept sometimes when I find stuff like that Frontline episode). No wonder why. Fucking TRASH.

The government should take away their broadcast license.

Interesting blog post from the Luddite at, on Ron Paul.

Strict Libertarians are neat in concept, not neat in the White House.

Paul Krugman has the best fucking blog.

The economist/columnist's blog is a gem when it comes to interpreting the economy.
