Re: What Makes You Laugh?


"In a less scientific age, he would have been a devil-worshipper, a partaker in the abominations of the Black Mass; or would have given himself to the study and practice of sorcery. His was a religious soul that had failed to find good in the scheme of things; and lacking it, was impelled to make of evil itself an object of secret reverence."

~ Clark Ashton Smith, "The Devotee of Evil"

Practicing Self-Care: Thousands Of Americans Are Showing Up To Stare At A Fat Baby Stuck In A Doggy Door To Distract Themselves From Their Trump-Related Anxiety

". . .The huge baby, whos been wedged in the doggy door of a Danvers, MA home since some time last week, has been providing countless people with relief from the emotional fatigue of our nations new political reality. Whether just stopping by to gawk for a few minutes before work or sticking around for hours to contemplate its many rolls, the ensnared baby has been a reliably calming force for many people who have otherwise been feeling angry and powerless.
I like how squishy it looks, says 28-year-old Madeline Lyons, whos made sure to carve time out of her busy schedule to stare at the stuck baby. When Im staring at it, I can forget about how Steve Bannon is pursuing a white-nationalist agenda and just recharge my batteries a little. I dont know how it got stuck, but Im glad it did.
While the baby attracts a steady flow of visitors from dusk till dawn, crowd sizes can swell to the tens of thousands in the wake of a new executive order or a particularly alarming news story. Certain events surrounding the baby itself can also cause visitor numbers to spike, such as on Sunday, when the baby got ahold of a dustpan somehow and was swinging it around, or on Tuesday, when it kept shouting the word Altoid.
Most people, however, say they are visiting the baby simply because they are burned out from the endless cycle of political crises and injustices, and seeing the baby slapping its doughy hands on the porch until it gets tuckered out rejuvenates them enough to once again face a world where the White House wants to ban Muslims from entering the country. By unplugging from social media for a little while to go watch the baby gleefully coo at a squirrel running across the yard, people are able to let go of their stress long enough to refocus their energy and get back out to protest.
For anyone waking up in the middle of the night from a stress dream about how President Trump is actively vilifying the free press, this plump baby stuck in a doggy door like a cork in a bottle could be the perfect counterbalance. A few hours ago, someone placed a baked potato just out of the babys reach in hopes that he would wriggle free in an effort to obtain the tasty snack, but the husky infant has yet to show any interest in the potato, electing instead to stay put and ham it up for its emotionally drained throngs of visitors.
Amazing. Seeing that the baby is helping so many Americans practice self-care and weather the pain of Trumps presidency, heres hoping that it sticks around for a long, long timepreferably the next four years. Otherwise, a lot of people will need to find a new source of hope."

The most entertaining thing to come out of Stranger Things, perhaps?

Just the first minute. What makes this funny to me is that it is completely believable.

Re: What Makes You Laugh?


Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.
