Racist Trolls are Really Bad at it!

Trolling:  to make a deliberately offensive or provocative online post with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them.  And if that’s the definition of the word, there are a lot of really blatantly obvious trolls online that are really, really awful at it. It’s like they don’t even know what […]

Good Job Microsoft!

This is just a stupid little personal story, so if you’re not into that, skip it.  Recently, I had some serious computer trouble where my computer would not reboot.  It hung and refused to start Windows no matter what I did, and I worked on it for hours and hours before I finally decided, screw […]

Halloween in a Wind Storm!

Normally, I’d put this on my other blog, but since Halloween falls on a Bitchspot day, it’s going to wind up here this year.  I am now and have always been a huge Halloween nerd, I grew up building haunted houses and decorating the yard and scaring the crap out of all comers, back in […]

Why Are People Unethical?

So I come across this random discussion going on about a really, really minor automobile accident that happened in a parking lot, someone backed into this guy’s car and basically barely tapped it, causing absolutely no visible damage whatsoever. So the guy says he took the car to a mechanic and the mechanic said there […]

Liberals are Horrible People

No, not all liberals, but certainly a considerable number, especially on the far fringes of the political left.  Why?  Because in a recent discussion about colleges uninviting conservative speakers, these people, as is no real surprise, turned right to victim blaming. Of course they did. No, colleges shouldn’t allow conservative speakers because apparently, it’s somehow […]

Two Kinds of Theists

The more that I think about it, the more I realize that there are really two distinct kinds of theists in the world.  You have the fanatics and the idiots.  On the one side, you have the people who believe what they believe and nothing in the world is ever going to stop them from […]

The Dumb, It Burns!

Every time I start to think that social media is at all worthwhile, something like this happens.  So I’m hanging out over on Gab.ai, which is sort of a free-speech Twitter replacement of sorts.  I knew that the far-right crazies were there, just like they are over on Minds, but I hadn’t run into any […]

Why Are Theists So Stupid?

I got into a short squabble with an irrational theist today whose answer to any given question is “the Bible provides all the answers”.  It doesn’t matter what you’re talking about, the Bible is the one and only source of all wisdom, ever.  It doesn’t make a difference if you point out that she’s just […]

Why Free College is So Problematic

Rhode Island has become the fourth U.S. state to offer free community college to all comers, bringing cries of support from the political left and anyone who understands the problem with this roll their eyes.  And there is a problem with this, one that nobody on the political left seems to understand.  If everyone has […]

The Solution to Having No Time

I can’t tell you how many people I see, both online and in my personal life, who constantly complain that they have no time to get the things that they need to do, or that they want to do, done.  They whine long and loud that life is just too busy, that there isn’t enough […]
