Crank Of The Week
This chap is refreshingly timecubey. He has a perpetual motion machine, of course, but that's not nearly the funniest thing about him.

Re: Crank Of The Week
He really needs to hire a copywriter. The writing is atrocious. The website looks like it was put up a middleschooler. It seems the website was written by him and he got what he paid for.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

The atrocious style is there to distract you from the atrocious substance.

The atrocious style is there to distract you from the atrocious substance.

That's really not how you're supposed to do "style over substance."


The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it. - Francis Bacon

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers

A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity. Albert Camus

"...the pious hope that by combining numerous little turds of variously tainted data, one can obtain a valuable result; but in fact, the outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." - Barash, David 1995...

"Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends." - Gandalf, J. R. R. Tolkien: The Lord Of the Rings

One small RIBBIT for frogkind..

A still camera on a sound trigger captured this intriguing photo of an airborne frog as NASA's LADEE spacecraft lifts off from Pad 0B at Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The photo team confirms the frog is real and was captured in a single frame by one of the remote cameras used to photograph the launch. The condition of the frog, however, is uncertain.

My favorite Mitchell and Webb sketch.

What's great about it is that it works perfectly well if you know the punchline ---- which you do --- it's funny because you know what's going to happen. So it goes on being funny forever. It resembles the good bits of Monty Python in that respect.
