Secrets of Schizophrenia and Depression "Unlocked"

jcgf Re:This is what is being done now... (334 comments)

I had 8 rounds of ECT a few years back (the big scary bilateral kind too). It helped more and had fewer side effects than any medication that I had tried. I experienced no memory loss and was only mildly disoriented upon waking up from the anesthesia (no more than other times I had surgery). I would go again tomorrow.

Lobby Groups Launch Full Assault For Canadian DMCA

jcgf Re:Truck Drivers? (135 comments)

If less than 6 Americans died you ain't doing toast properly. Just got back from Williston this morning after managing to pick up 11 last night. I would have had 15 but the other 4 passed the exam (one surprised me as I didn't think she was going to figure out the last derivative but I guess she remembered her product rule in the last 10 minutes of the session - surprised the hell out of me which I mentioned during my speech at the graduation ceremonies).

Anyways, to bring this post back on topic, I think these are just a bunch of whiny assholes that are all bitchy that we're heading south of the border to get our entertainment. They deserve all of the disdain they get. Yes, Rush and BTO were awesome, but just look at some of the crap they've given us since:

Speaking of entertainment, take a look at this:
When they start casting, I'm going to audition to play a Confederate telegraph operator (it's a minor roll - no speaking but I nod a lot when Mel Gibson's character speaks to me and you can listen to me send what he says). The director told me that he hopes Fox will put us next to American Dad.

Diebold Admits Flaw In Voting Software

jcgf Re:Umm, duh? (281 comments)

Yes. I am saying that we should put him up against the wall. By "American solution", I meant use the guns not ask them for help - they'd come; but they wouldn't leave afterward ;)

We don't need to stuff ballots very often due to coalition governments

This doesn't really work in the case of a majority government. So in that case, we would have to resort to the US solution. I know a bunch of farmers with Enfields and 22s they got from SEARS 40 years ago don't seem like anything that could take over a government but keep in mind that this would be the Canadian government and that L'Arme Secrète is only useful in the case of US or Russian invasion.

I'm sorry liberals, but I don't want your charity if you think it entitles you to dictate the way I live my life.


Liberalism: a political ideology that seeks to maximize individual liberties.

If they are telling you what to do, they ain't liberal.

US House Kills Proposed Delay For Digital TV Transition

jcgf Re:The amount of money.... (664 comments)

I'm also Canadian but am too lazy to read the budget. So I hope you don't mind if I ask some questions ;)

The leaderpost had a headline that the new Tory budget is going to add another $34 billion to the national debt. The first paragraph of the article said that this was due to income tax cuts. Would that be an accurate statement and if not how would you improve upon it?

Trying To Find White House Missing E-mails

jcgf Re:Oh hey, look, in the distance, that ship... (437 comments)

Now, if you are going to try Bush and company, then I'd say that almost every single American president of the 20th century must be dragged into court as well, except the newly elected Obama (but we'll see).

He's not even president yet and he's already being called a 20th century president. Fascinating.

Why Does the US Have a Civil Space Program?

jcgf Re:BECAUSE (308 comments)

I agree. I can't help but think that the people who are against space flight are either fat slobs who are in a tiff because they couldn't pass the physical or even worse those "solve the problems here on earth first" types. The first should be made to exercise to see their full potential and the second should be rounded up for "re-education".

However, this would not apply to animals that are grazed rather than fed, especially those grazed on land that could not be used for other purposes.

I guess it's ok for vegetarians to beat a horse as long as it's dead, eh?

Previously Uncontacted Amazon Tribe Photographed

jcgf Re:Those pics look fake to me. Shenanigans? (556 comments)

Either that or let them shoot some arrows, then fire back a couple hellfire missles, just to let them know who's boss.

That would be cool. It would also be funny if you just hovered there and let their arrows bounce off until they got tired of shooting them. Then just start flashing a bunch of colored lights in geometric patterns. Once you have done that, leave the immediate area for a bit.

Then come back at night, abduct one of their tribesmen and put him in a bright room. Once he is in the room, we come in with dark sunglasses with big lenses and snazzy white coveralls to go with the shades. We should ignore him/her if they try to speak to us (we likely won't understand their language anyways). At this point we should shove probes up their asses and then take blood and other bodily fluid samples. If the abductee is female, she should be impregnated (artificial insemination is best, but if you are desperate just find a human with similar skin color and don't have him where the coveralls and glasses combo).

In the event that you do get a female and impregnate her, come back in 3 or 4 months (time isn't important, just be sure to get there before the end of the second trimester so that the baby has very little chance of surviving outside of the womb). When you come back, put the coveralls and glasses back on and abduct the woman again. Once you have her, remove the fetus and have your dark skinned pal make some hand gestures to indicate that the baby would live "up there" (point up to the sky etc). Then place a tiny piece of a meteorite under her skin (I recommend administering a good narcotic dose here, not enough to put her to sleep but enough to make her groggy and unaware). You can either keep the fetus or throw it away at this point, you won't need it again for our purposes (though I recommend keeping it as you can sell it to stem cell researchers or you can dissect it yourself if you like embryology and you just never no when an aborted fetus might come in handy - it's best to store them in a deep freeze or similar device).

Finally, every few years, come back and abduct her again. Each time you do it come back with the same weird looking kid (note that he must be both wierd looking in some fashion and of similar skin color and body type to the abductee). Have her play with the kid and give her food and drink that would appear strange to her (you could just bring something from burger king just make sure to present it in an odd fashion). If she seems upset to leave the kid behind, have the kid indicate that he can't survive outside in the air (he could just take deep breaths and then pretend to gag while pointing outside).

This is a wonderful hobby, but be warned that it's easy to get carried away with it.
