I Hope This Flat Earther’s Homemade Rocket Crashes

November 22nd, 2017 11:21am Comments off

space.com – A flat-Earth enthusiast who claims not to believe in science plans to launch himself 1,800 feet (550 meters) above California’s Mojave Desert in a homemade steam rocket on Saturday (Nov. 25), the Associated Press reported.

“I don’t believe in science,” Hughes said, according to the AP. “I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”

Nothing would make me happier than to see this guy’s rocket crash. It’s 2017. Even the Catholic church believes the world is round. I mean it only took them 350 years to get it right in 1992. We can’t have these flat-Earther nutjobs running around spreading lies. Before you know it, we’ll have Trump signing executive orders on the subject. Make Earth flat again!

And what’s this noise that he doesn’t believe in science? He understands aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and things moving through the air? Uhhh, that sounds like physics to me. Last time I checked, physics and how things move through air is science. Air. Our atmosphere. Not science? Moron. This is why we need natural selection to kill these people off.

Any flat-earther deserves the Dolores Umbridge “I must not tell lies” punishment that gets carved into their hands:

Brand New Server and HTTPS

November 21st, 2017 11:36am Comments off

I don’t really blog anymore and have been too lazy to update/migrate the server this used to be hosted on. The VM it used to be on was completely corrupted, was so old the vendor no longer provided updates and thus was insecure af (aka I used to FTP to the shit to update my files That’s right… FTP. Sending a password in plain text. NOPE). It was also using like php 5.2 which was an antique and vulnerable.

As practice for a personal project, I migrated it to a modern VM, added it to Cloudflare and am using the latest and greatest OS and webserver components. Hooray! No one cares. Not even me.

Bunch of Pussy TSA Workers Get Their Eyes Irritated at LGA Because Of Someone’s Food

March 29th, 2017 10:57am Comments off

Reuters –  Three Transportation Security Administration agents suffered minor eye injuries on Wednesday at New York’s LaGuardia Airport after they were exposed to an irritating food product while inspecting a carry-on bag, local media reported.

New York’s WABC said the bag set off an alarm at a checkpoint inside Terminal B, and a Port Authority official told the television station that the irritant was identified as a food substance. Three agents were transported to Elmhurst Hospital Center with minor eye irritation, according to a New York Fire Department spokesman. A hazardous materials team was sent to the terminal after an emergency call at 5:30 a.m. EDT (0930 GMT), he said.

The incident caused the terminal’s Concourse D to be temporarily closed. New York Port Authority officials did not respond to a request for comment.

Just another day of LaGuardia being LaGuardia. I’d expect no less. Only at this third world shithole do you have a bunch of pansies who get their eyes irritated by food. Put a couple eyedrops in and move it along. Nope. Instead, they have to close the terminal, send them to the hospital and send in the hazmat team as if sarin nerve gas was released. If I ever miss a flight because of shit like this, there wouldn’t be enough Xanax in the world to keep me from going on a full on rampage and getting arrested. Be stronger ya fucking weaklings. We’ve got the dregs of society working there and it’s the worst fucking airport I’ve ever seen in a civilized country. Absolute embarrassment.

PS – Fiorello LaGuardia must be spinning in his grave. I’m sure it’s an honor to have an airport named after you, since he was a tight mayor of NYC at one point. However, he’s probably up there like “*SMH* shit was so much better in the ’30s, even though it was the Great Depression. I don’t want this fucking shithole named after me tainting my fine name.”
