Blast from the past: How STUPID are the dumbshits at MIT?

She “misrepresented” herself on her resume 28 YEARS AGO, and the idiot dumbshits at MIT never bothered to do any fact-checking.

Makes you wonder what the process is to decide who matriculates there. Do they just take admissions applications and throw them up a flight of stairs, and see which ones manage to go up the farthest????

Red Rising and Philosophy – contributor’s bio

I contributed an essay for inclusion in the upcoming Red Rising and Philosophy, which is in the popular culture and philosophy genre.

The Red Rising trilogy is a SF (science fiction) trilogy authored by Pierce Brown.

I have had essays published in over a dozen books in this genre.

Saturday evening, I received a copy of what’s called “first page proofs,” which is basically a first attempt at putting the book together. These are sent to the contributing authors so that they can review their essays/chapters for spelling and grammatical errors. When I looked in the Contributors’ Bios section, I discovered that the bio that I had submitted had been rejected, and replaced with a plain vanilla bio pulled, for the most part, from my LinkedIn account.

I was informed by the book’s editors that the senior editor had rejected my proposed bio, and that they didn’t learn about this until the day before.

I look at my contributor’s bio as my last chance of connecting in a playful, whimsical manner with the readers. For this entry in Open Court’s popular culture and philosophy genre, I wrote a poem. The title of the poem was supposed to have been “Vrjnak,” which is a word in the language of the Stained in the third book of Pierce Brown’s trilogy, “Morning Star.” I believe it translates into “Stained Son.”

Here is the poem that I wrote. It is an original work. I do not consent to having it re-transmitted, published, or used in any way, shape or form, by anybody. I reserve all rights to this original work of poetry.



Through the white and the grey of the cold and the fright;

toward the gold and the blue of the all blinding bright.


To ever stand tall betwixt the Left and what’s Right;

to never down fall afore the Lie and its Might.


Black ire have I spilled in this battle, bloody fight;

red hands have I forged with my mettle, crimson knight.


The Truth crystal clear is revealed before my sight.

I am stained forever by the words I do wright.

Do NOT download software “Hostsman”. You will have to refresh Windows 8.1

I had forgotten that I had specifically abandoned Hostmans last year because of this issue. I wanted to add Hostsman back in order to stop ads from being downloaded in webpages. However, it screwed up my laptop to the point where I had to REFRESH Windows 8.1 and re-install software, passwords, etc.  I think it fucked up my hosts file, but regardless, it made me unable to connect to the Internet.

Just finished reading all of Plato’s known dialogues – The Great Books, vol. 6, (c) 1990

Something that every educated man should be able to say. I wish I had done this decades ago, but, as they say, better late than never.

“Knee Defenders” should be ILLEGAL – s/b considered felony modification of an aircraft

I understand that people are pissed off that people have the ability to recline their seats on an airplane. However, these “Knee Defender” pieces of shit s/b illegal and a felony to use.


Defending scarce leg space in flight: A right or grounds to sue?




Per the Huffington Post:


“According to the Associated Press, United and all other major U.S. airlines have banned it. ”


WHO THE FUCK do the assholes who use these things think they are???? Don’t they know that airplane seats are built to recline? That people need to recline on very long flights so that they don’t get blood clots in their legs????
