Chinese Proverb: "We are fools whether or not we dance, so we might as well dance."


This post is bits and pieces of things I've found.


Have you heard about the Iowa female dental assistant who was fired because the dentist's wife thought she was too attractive?  The dentist had said some inappropriate things to her, mild sexual harassment, and the two had engaged in some innocent texting outside office hours, but I don't think the (married) assistant had any idea what was going on in the dentist's head.  The wife did.  I suspect the dentist mentioned her too often at home, and that worried the wife, so she insisted that he get rid of the assistant.  The dentist went to his pastor, who advised him to get rid of her, so he did.

The dentist's attitude is, "I sexually harassed you, therefore I have to terminate your job to stop sexually harassing you. You will be missed."

The assistant sued for sexual discrimination in her firing, and the Iowa supreme court found for the dentist!  Story at


Effects of digital connectivity:

Anomie -  social instability resulting from a breakdown of standards and values; personal unrest, alienation, and uncertainty that comes from a lack of purpose or ideals.

Nihilism - a viewpoint that traditional values and beliefs are unfounded and that existence is senseless and useless; a doctrine that denies any objective ground of truth and especially of moral truths; a doctrine or belief that conditions in the social organization are so bad as to make destruction desirable for its own sake independent of any constructive program or possibility.


Regarding that rape story out of Steubenville, Ohio, I am shocked and saddened that so many people believe that "digitally raped" means the guy penetrated her with his cell phone.


You know how when you make an online purchase you can opt in or out of getting email updates or the store newsletter?  I always look for that, and I always check NO.

I always still get the damn things.  That's gotta be illegal.  Who would I report it to?


People who brag that they've never had any psychological counseling annoy me.   It's like people with a mouthful of rotting stumps bragging that they've never been to a dentist.


This is pretty cool.

Hasidic rap:



Funny cringe-worthy item on  Read the customer reviews.


This is the Weeping Prophet's dating video.



I am ashamed to pass this little item along.  Because then you know I watched it.  Several times.  On the other hand, how can I not share it?  There's no way to describe it.  On YouTube it says, "No description available." Sums it up nicely.

The following is a selection of comments on the thing, from YouTube and  Read these comments before you watch the video.    Um, absolutely not safe for work (even muted- the sound is necessary), or for children or square fogies in the vicinity.  Everybody but the Queen should watch it in privacy.  (The Queen probably won't care if her reputation is destroyed.)  The song is catchy, and there's a danger that it will become an earworm if you are prone to that, and you must must must resist.

This is a few guns short of being the most American thing on the internet.

The bassist seems to be thinking, "Oh god, this is going on the internet, isn't it? Yep, this is going on the internet."

I say we let Texas secede

Ahhhh.... What a love song! What lyrical prose! The official love song of the crystal meth generation!

My IQ hurts after watching this. I may be screwed up, but the first thing I thought was "Why ain't there a guitar player?"

A Tomahawk missile would have been a perfect finish. Just blow them all up.

Where the f**k was this when I was looking for wedding procession songs?

I've listened to this song about 10 times now. I can feel myself just falling down the the ladder of success. I also can't get this thong off that magically grew on me.
It's at  If you've already seen Captain America in a thong singing "Quack Like a Duck" and it scarred you forever, you might not want to go there.

IF YOU ACTUALLY WATCHED THAT LAST VIDEO, yeah, that one just above, the one that asks your age before allowing you through, CONFESS IN A COMMENT!
