Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Around the world in 80 links!

Well, it's Sunday, and I've been accumulating links all week. So let's see what we have!

First, sign my GuestMap! How will I know which areas of the world to spare when I crush the rest under my iron fist? If you sign my GuestMap, I will be merciful (unless you tell me ABBA sucks - then, it's on!)

Be warned, people - below lurk cheesecake pictures, even (gasp!) a female nipple or two! If you're offended by that sort of thing, go away now. I won't warn you again! No beefcake pictures this week, so our traditional lady readers and non-traditional male (as Gregg Easterbrook calls them) readers will have to wait. Maybe next week!

Start with the funny stuff. Get them on your side.

I told Zombie Tom about this link, but he didn't like it because I guess zombies lose the ability to read (or focus on anything except eating brains). It's Why don't zombies turn on each other? I found this on Catallarchy. Zombie Tom also shows us this funny parody of Amazon. For all you zombie needs!

This is a funny picture. I won't ruin the surprise, but why do they design it that way, and why is it a tradition? I stole this from Toner Mishap.

From Oh Dog, You Sleuth! we get: Celebrities eating. Exactly what it says it is.

Thomas wonders if there's too much information on the Internet, because he found this.

Anatomically correct animal crackers!

The Vicious Cycle. For anyone in a relationship.

Orac knows how blogging works. He links to an explanation! It's quite funny.

The greatest personal ad ever. Words fail me. From Echopraxia.

Welcome to the Sideshow gives us a link to I Hate Bill O'Reilly. Someone has too much hate in their lives. Still, it's humorous.

Out-of-context Mark Trail panel. Tim does these every week, but this one is superb.

When women bloggers jello-wrestle! Sorry, gentlemen, it's not dirty. It comes from Echidne of the Snakes.

A disturbing Mary Worth strip. Seriously. Don't click on the link! It will haunt your dreams!

You checked it out, didn't you? Now your dreams will be haunted! Well, I guess you can take a look at this poor headline placement. Seriously, who keeps track of these things?

Politics. Because now that they're on your side, you can make them angry.

Here's an interesting post about the Democrats and the problems in Iraq.

The Army refuses to change Pat Tillman's Silver Star certificate. Man, somehow the government has turned even the ridiculously patriotic Tillmans against it. What a crock this is. Of course, the Army also denies it covered anything up in the Pat Tillman case. Jesus.

One in two new Americans since 2000 is Hispanic. I think all those people who want to make English the official language should start worrying that soon Spanish might be the official language. Some dude here in AZ thinks that 2020 Hispanics will be the majority ethnic group. Aren't these English-only people all about "well, the majority of people speak English ..." I guess they'll happily learn Spanish in a couple of decades!

A really long article on the history of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. If you don't know what the Protocols are, check this out. Chilling stuff.

Some thoughts about Natalee Holloway. You know, the blonde white girl who disappeared from Aruba. And yes, it's important that she's blonde and white.

An interesting interpretation of the Constitution as it relates to the medical marijuana decision.

Everyone knows what's going on in the Sudan, right? Here's an interesting idea - divest from Sudan. I don't know if it will work, but it's worth discussing.

A story about South Dakota's new abortion law. This can't last, can it? I saw this on Heretical Ideas, which has the text of the law.

A truly horrible abortion story from Texas. From Kung Fu Monkey. Not for the squeamish.

John Cole wants to know if Howard Dean is the dumbest person on the planet. Ace of Spades wonders if he's crazy like a fox. The Rude Pundit loves him, though. This Howard Dean thing is weird. On the one hand, I love it. On the other, shouldn't he be aiming his anger at the bigger issues of the Republican Party? I'm torn.

Your tax dollars at work! Medicaid has given Viagra to 198 sex offenders. This comes from Echidne of the Snakes.

A court says a gay man is allowed to drive because homosexuality is not a mental disorder. You thought it was in Texas, didn't you? Nah - it's in Italy. This comes from Upon Further Review.

I was always under the impression that the Kyoto Treaty on pollution was full of holes. I didn't like that Bush rejected it, but if that was his reason, okay. Well, apparently, ExxonMobil persuaded Bush to reject it. Depressing. I found this at Talking Points Memo.

The governor of Texas tells gay vets to leave the state. I don't mean to pick on Texas, but what the flying fuck is going on there? This guy actually told veterans to move. I wish I could say I find it hard to believe, but I don't. This is from the Huffington Post.

More creationism insanity. Lots of links on this post.

Speaking of creationism insanity, Pharyngula points us to three different stories about a zoo in Tulsa that is going to install a creationist exhibit. Think about that for a bit.

Yet more creationism fun! Pharyngula links to this story about a Virginia biology teacher who has been handing out his own creationist textbook in class. The funny thing? He's been doing it for 15 years, and no one ever complained. Now, those damned Commies from the ACLU probably took an interest. Damned Commies.

Gosh, conservatives are angry that the Senate is trying to expand the Patriot Act in secret. Gee, maybe they should have thought of that before they gave the president carte blanche to intrude on everyone's personal lives. I just saw this on Balloon Juice. Speaking of the Patriot Act, Republicans must be nervous about it, because they don't allow open debate about it! Isn't that something you do when you think something has a lot of holes - take your ball and go home?

Jesse Helms just published his memoirs, and he remains clueless. Yet another tasty nugget from Balloon Juice.

This is the kind of thing that gives liberals a bad name. No religious vanity plates in Vermont? WTF? This comes from Andrew Sullivan.

It appears there will be hearings on the now-infamous Downing Street Memo, according to this. (It's written by John Byrne, for you comic book fans - a weird coincidence.) I got this from the Disgruntled Chemist via Shakespeare's Sister.

This is a really good essay on global warming. Maybe we'll learn someday.

Comic book stuff. Encourage their inner geekiness!

Dr. Doom answers fan mail. Be warned - he's not always in a good mood.

Remember that comic book I told you about with the dinosaurs and demons trying to stop Noah's Ark? Sure you do! You can order it here! All the information came from Pharyngula.

The University of Melbourne is hosting a conference on superheroes. Man, I wish I was in Australia. Laura Gjovaag found this one.

Excellent old-school Wonder Woman quotes.

Are you an aspiring comic book artist? Check out this story about Oni Press and its talent search. Fame and fortune could be yours!

Miscellaneous. Because it's always good to have some random stuff at the end.

Families camped out at the new Chick-fil-a. Read that again. They camped out!

Krys linked to the story in our newspaper about the greeting cards you can get if you're in an adulterous relationship. Some people just want to turn me Republican, I swear. In case you're in an adulterous relationship, here's the web site so you can buy a card for your secret lover. This is what we've come to.

A sad article about grade grubbing. This comes from Atrios.

I linked to this earlier in the week, but it's pretty interesting. How many Americans really attend church? From Andrew Sullivan.

Oh, the irony! I found this on Catallarchy, which led to some nasty comments. Listen, I think global warming is a reality. But this is still ironic.

I found this, and other pictures of girls with actual dead bodies, at Dark, But Shining, where they link to the web site. Check out all the pictures! Is anyone else disturbed by this? Posted by Hello

Speaking of weird stuff, Walker watches a network called Kink. Not for the weak of stomach!

Walker also writes about his visit to the stripping barber shop. Walker has an interesting life.

Weird fashion. More weird stuff can be found here. Nothing as weird as this, but still. Posted by Hello

In other fashion news, this is an awful dress on a pretty attractive girl - Charlotte Church. This comes from Go Fug Yourself. Posted by Hello

And because we can't get enough of fashion, how many of you have always wanted to wear Amish clothes? All of you, I'm sure. Well, now you can get them on the Internet! Chris Cope pointed this out.

After the girls with corpses thing, Dark, But Shining gives us Japanese urban legends. They're actually creepier than American ones. Oh, those wacky Japanese!

A Costa Rican priest is convicted of having a dog put to death. Probably because the dog wasn't Catholic. Why do people suck?

A teen trying to kill a snake shoots himself. Snake 1, brainless idiot 0.

Why do women find it difficult to have orgasms? It's genetic, baby! Found at Catallarchy.

The Disgruntled Chemist, through another site, found this. Here's a sample of what this woman believes: Man needed someone to see how much he could lift and to say "My you are strong". But there was no one, Maybe he took a lap around the garden and there was no one to say.."Wow, you are the fastest runner I know!" God made woman to sit on the sidelines and cheer when a man succeeds. God made a woman to sit in the audience while her husband preaches and say. "That's the best preacher in the world". That's totally unedited, by the way. Learn more about a woman's role at her site!

Here's a couple of disturbing stories: Plastic surgery on private parts and an older story about Pubic hair grooming. People are weird. The first link comes from the Ace of Spades.

Upon Further Review links to this blog. One entry only, but it's a doozy.

An interesting (and long) post about the Ginger/Mary Ann thing on The Real Gilligan's Island. You know, the pie fight.

Forgotten New York - pictures of places in New York that have been, well, forgotten. From Mr. Snitch, who likes the forgotten Hoboken section.

A Miss Venezuela wardrobe malfunction (but not in this outfit). You might not be able to watch it, depending on your system, but it's pretty funny (and, of course, obscene - I don't condone watching it at all!) I ripped this off from Heidi McDonald.

This guy is trying to visit 1000 bars this years. I'd hate to be his liver.

Totally weird church sex case story in Louisiana. Really bizarre.

Just read the sub-headline to this article. Ya think? From Dancing the Polka with Miss El Cajon.

Roxy just pointed a new site out to me: The Willem Dafoe Failure Watch. What this person has against Willem Dafoe is unclear, but if you're interested ...

Killing your wife in Oklahoma is a misdemeanor. That's not a misprint. Killing your wife in Oklahoma is a misdemeanor. This is from Echidne of the Snakes. The news story, inexplicably, does not explain why this guy was charged with a misdemeanor.

Who took this wacky photo?

Stanley Kubrick took it! Posted by Hello Will Pfeifer links to the other photos Kubrick took in Chicago in 1949. They're pretty neat, but this one takes the cake.

Check out this wild ride at Cedar Point, Ohio.

It's the Evangecube! It's a paper cube that teaches you how to be a Christian - like a Rubik's Cube, but Godly! The company's motto: "Reaching the lost billion ... one at a time." Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

Do you want to know which Jews rock? Of course you do! Find out here which of your favorite rockers are Jewish! This is from Respectful Insolence.

Would you insure these breasts for 1 million pounds? Posted by Hello This is kind of old, but this 17-year-old Welsh girl did! I stumbled across this at this site. The guy who runs this blog posts pictures of scantily-clad babes every Friday. He’s a conservative. Does that make him a hypocrite? If you're interested, here is her official site.

You checked out her site, didn't you? You perv.

That's all for now, folk. I hope you enjoy wasting time! What else are Sundays for?

I think Chapter 12, Verse 3 of Corinthians says that the Sabbath is for the looking at of valuable Welsh knockers.

As true today as when t'was written.

I'm sure you're right, Layne. It's the American (and Canadian) Way!

I'm still trying to process that "girls with corpses" thing. I think it might be awesome, but I'm often very very wrong about stuff like that, so it's probably horrible.

I think it's a little of both, David - that's what makes it so riveting.
