Lotsa Little Bits vol. 15

ITEM:  It's a sad day in our world when a disaster not caused by some nutjob is a breath of fresh air...

ITEM:  I had to laugh (because that's what I do) as I was reading the story about Paul Kevin Curtis, the part time Elvis and full time "one brick short" who sent the ricin-laced letter to President Obutthole.  Mainly because of how he signed the letter- as well as others he's sent to various politicos on his s-list.

Many of his screeds have ended with the same line his letter to President Obama reportedly did: “I am KC and I approve this message.”
Now as far as I know, the government did not investigate my son KC.  However, that KC had his own problems, as we learned on facebook:

I feel like if u vomit on urself right after showering to go to work u desereve a day off.

Two KCs, both nutjobs.  One guilty, one goofy.

ITEM: Catherine Kieu of California has come up with a great way to take care of a cheating husband.


Orange County Deputy District Attorney John Christl said in his opening statement that Kieu, angry because her husband was dating a former girlfriend, laced his food with sleeping pills on July 11, 2011, then tied him to a bed, severed his penis and put it in the garbage disposal.

Wow, harsh.  But, as they say, problem solved.  Laurie says she'd have been better off just getting a divorce, but her way was cheaper. And justice, I suppose, was served.  Kinda reminded me of the story from 2004 in which the old man from Romania was trying to cut the head off a noisy rooster in the pre-dawn darkness while in his boxers- the old boy in the darkness grabbed his non-struggling wiener rather than the neck of the struggling bird, lobbed it off, and then watched as his dog (who in the pre-dawn darkness mistook it for sausage) grabbed it and ran off.  Maybe not the same reason, but very similar results.

ITEM:  And then there were three.  Moscow Dynamo claimed their second straight Gagarin Cup when Traktor goalie Michael Garnett found himself out of position about 6 minutes into OT, and  Alexei Tsvetskov found himself with a puck and an empty with which to create a 3-2 victory and a 4-2 series win.  It was the second time I had to ask WTH when Garnett's wrong place-wrong time routine cost his team a goal- the first had given Dynamo their first lead at 2-1.

And today, Joachim Eriksson stopped 32 shots as Skelleftea topped Lulea 4-0, winning the Swedish championship by that same count.  Skelleftea wins their second championship, the first came back in 1978.

ITEM: Also in sports, my two baseball teams learned the secret of snapping losing streaks.  For the A's, they washed away a series loss to the Tigers by running their record against Houston to 7-0 this year in a three game sweep.  Cincinnati, meanwhile, ended a five game losing streak by sweeping three from the lovely Philadelphia Phillies.  Nothing like eating alive the worst team in your league!

ITEM: And that reminds me a saw an article where U-Haul announced last year's 15 top places to relocate to.  The list included:  New York City (13), Philadelphia (8), and Chicago (3).  I ask you: WHY???  Houston was #1 for the 4th year in a row- which we know one of the reasons was NOT the baseball team.

ITEM: Time to take a break so I can work on Time Machine in a bit.

  2. Well, no WONDER KC snapped. Once the Sunshine Band told him to go scratch, he's never been the same.

    1. ...But it got mailed to my e-mail. I appreciate your concerns, but I did find the humor in it. I think one must consider that we live in a society in which there are (stereotypically speaking) many ways to "de-womanize a woman" in word and action without or with violence- and what he did was one of them. However, if you want to "de-man" a man, there are precious few ways to do it to a man stupid enough as to deserve the punishment that he will understand, and she nailed it.

    I deleted my previous comment because I didn't feel right about posting something critical on your blog, even though I was being critical solely of the way you responded to this story, and not critical of you personally. (For the record, I think you are a good, intelligent, and educated person; so my negative comment was directed at your response, which I found disappointing coming from a person with the positive attributes I described above.)

    We are both familiar with The Holy Bible, and we are also fairly knowledgeable about what goes on in "this world". The only legitimate grounds for divorce that is specifically recorded in The Bible from the perspective of Christ is adultery. Therefore I am by no means downplaying the seriousness of adultery. But we also know that a great many men AND women have cheated on their spouses, and if the action taken in this instance is the least bit justified, then we would have countless men and women walking around with missing or disfigured sex organs.

    I don't find this action justified or humorous in any degree. And... we men have been emasculated and (figuratively) turned into eunuchs for decades now by feminists and the mainstream media and entertainment companies. It needs to stop! And unfortunately, I view the lighthearted treatment of this crime to be playing right into the hands of those who have already "de-manned" men.

    Well, it seems I'm getting "critical" again, when I only meant to explain why I decided to delete my previous comment. Rather than go on, I'll just close now by, again, recommending the book I mentioned earlier: 'LEGALIZING MISANDRY: From Public Shame To Systemic Discrimination Against Men' by Paul Nathanson and Katherine K. Young.

    Bless And Be Blessed, Brother.

    1. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this minor point... IMHO the dude had it coming, and I certainly understood her choice of methods to make it permanent. I just hope that the guy in India that raped the 5-y-o girl gets the same thing... for a start...

    Wait a second - something just occurred to me: maybe there's more to this story than I know. All I know about it is what you posted above in this blog installment. But your remark “IMHO the dude had it coming” has me wondering if there’s more to the story that you’re aware of which I’m not.

    The guy cheated on his wife, right? But that’s not the whole story, right? Because if it were, you’d essentially be saying that you think EVERY GUY who cheats on his wife has that coming to him.

    And that would also mean that EVERY GAL who cheats on her husband has something like that coming to her also, isn’t that correct?

    I’m sure you don’t really mean THAT. So, please, explain to me what I’m missing here. Of course we’re in agreement about the terrible sin that is adultery, but neither of us believes that bodily mutilation is justified in every case of adultery, right? Men and women generally cutting up their cheating spouses? You’re not condoning that, I’m sure. So tell me where the ‘disconnect’ is occurring in this particular scenario – I’m seriously curious, Bro! There has GOT to be more to it than I’m seeing here.

    1. A. It was a pattern, B. he'd been warned. The only way to keep a dog that eats poop from eating is to muzzle him. I would venture (Off the point) to say it had become a pride thing among the two, or she'd have just divorced him. I don't think it comes to this without cause.

      Our disconnect I think is not that big a deal. Not everybody is going to see the humor in things the way the next guy does. And laughing at the guy whose too self important to look down and trips on the roller skate does not automatically mean you'll laugh at the old man who trips on it and breaks his hip. IOW, I really don't think it NEEDS to be extended to all cases as you would like to do. But, if that's your thing, feel free. I'm just snickering at this guy.
