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!

Name:
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!

Christopher Walken for president, terrorist babies, Sexy Chix, bathroom adventures, and blinding porn! It's all in the links!

Hi everyone! If you're interested, you should sign my GuestMap. What's your excuse for not doing it? Huh?

And remember: I'm having a contest! I have gotten some interesting entries, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't enter!

Well, it was a busy week here at the Burgas household, and when it's a busy week, that means there ain't a lot of Internet surfing going on! I got some interesting stuff, however, so let's get to it:

The magic that is the next blog button. Always groovy.

Here's a Japanese blog. At least I think it's Japanese. It looks like Japanese.

April's Real Blog. She has some connection to For Better Or For Worse, because she has links to stuff about it, but I don't know what. She writes like a teenager, which makes me hope she is one.

Here's a guy keeping fit in Philadelphia.

Here's a guy who is apparently in Pittsburgh. It's not terribly interesting.

Finally, a Spanish blog. Read all the Spanish you want!

Even though politics makes me ill, I still found some interesting political stuff this past week.

Lots of people have linked to Christopher Walken for president. I first found it on Ian Brill's blog. Apparently it's a hoax, and a lot of people around the blogosphere are disappointed. I always thought it was a hoax. I didn't care - it's still fun.

I first saw this story on Blog for Arizona, but it's been at other places too. Apparently, people in the White House are resigned that Iraq will become some kind of Islamic Republic. I just don't know what to say.

This is an interesting post about whether America should tolerate the intolerant. Very relevant.

Here are some interesting ideas on how to change our way of life to fight terror instead of obstinately rebuilding the World Trade Center. Of course, if we don't continue with our idiotic ways, "the terrorists win."

Terrorist babies! Yes, it's true. I got this on the Huffington Post.

Bill Richardson, the groovy governor of New Mexico, thinks outside the box with regard to illegal immigration. Like the post, I'm not too sure this is a great idea, but it's something, which is more than the feds are doing.

A little bit o' the comics. Geeks of the world unite!

Jim Roeg has an excellent post about love in Amazing Spider-Man #205. Jim continues to amaze with his comic-book acumen.

Dave has a problem with Sexy Chix. If you're a comic book geek and you haven't heard of this book, go here and find out what it is and why Dave has a problem with it. I tend to agree with him.

Other comic book people have pointed this out, but Paul O'Brien is bored with comics and 310 people feel the need to comment on it. Now that's the definition of "nothing better to do with your time."

All about the miscellany. Where the real news is!

The Great Debate: Big Wheels vs. Powerwheels! I must say: I never had either.

In England, you need a license to watch television. I kid you not.

Astrid has adventures in the bathroom. Oh, fret not, it's nothing icky.

The Anti-Corporate Patriot links to this story about growing meat in a laboratory. Wow. Interesting stuff.

The Onion has the big scoop: Evangelicals refute gravity! The link is from Balloon Juice.

Chris Cope always finds the good stories: A 22-year-old married a 14-year-old girl. Ah, the Midwest! The heartland!

Hey, what do you know? Porn does make you blind. I got this at Ace of Spades.

The stolen pictures section. I love stealing pictures from others!

Tom the Dog links to Overcompensating, which is pretty damned funny. Here's the example that I stole from Tom:

Dorian gives us this terribly naughty picture of Batman:

Rhodester gives us this picture, which seems awfully familiar, but I'll steal it anyway:

Finally, it's Coke's secret ingredient:

I hope you enjoyed this week's junk. It's always a mystery whether they will return next week. All this parenting crap takes up my time. The nerve of these kids, not being independent and all that!

Thanks, Nick. I asked the little woman, who has actually studied Japanese, and she thought it was Japanese. Whoops!

Ah yes, you need a license to watch TV in England, but because of it, they have fewer commercials. Even though I was an advertising major as an undergrad, I think having fewer commercials would kick @$$.

Christopher Walken for President of the US. Kinky Friedman for Governer of Texas.

Things could be looking sunnier on the political fantasy horizon....

Pittsburgh is always interesting when the amazing Astrid is there!!! I'll be heading into that direction in November! Can't hardly wait!

Pittsburgh itself is very interesting, Astrid. It's the blog that's not.

April's blog. That's just weird.

You don't need a licence to watch TV in England - it applies to the whole UK ('England' is a state, the UK is a country).

Sorry, Kait; reduced advertising is only a small part of it. The licence fee pays for the BBC, which has no commercial adverts at all. However, that only accounts for two of the five basic terrestrial networks (not counting cable & satellite). The other three are ad-supported (perhaps 10-15 mins of ads per hour) and get nothing from the licence fee.

It's possible to only watch the ad-supported networks, but you still have to pay for a licence!

Hi there, NRT. I'm glad you stopped by. Would you believe I found your blog because you like Marillion?
