I've got two, namely

That Doom feature in Wax Poetics was interesting. He was all like, "I'm just a regular guy

which I thought was too boring to post, and

GOD CUTTY WHY DON'T YOU QUIT

which was supposed to be a funny post on the lose weight thread, but I thought it might be interpreted as serious.

I was gonna post on the '"500 Days of Summer" thread that I thought it would make a good back story for Cobra Commander, but I didn't feel like searching for the thread, coz what if someone already made the comment? I'd have to do 'edit' 'find' 'cobra', and display all posts. So, I posted it on facebook anyway.

I don't know? It's got a woman in the title, but it's two years old and the reads are on-site reads. It doesn't make sense. The simpsons porn one only partly makes sense, but a lot of those reads are site reads too. Wait, I get that one, because it persists because of the most read threads page working in concert with google hits. But the other one with the girl I just don't get, unless it's a lesser version of the same phenomenon.

Fact: www.dhmo.org is a website dedicated to that stupid joke your chemistry teacher makes in high school about dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) being the most abundant, potentially dangerous chemical in the world.

Fact: according to double top-secret web analytics I saw for epa.g0v today, the number two referrer to EPA's website in the past 3 months was www.dhmo.org, and it's been in the top 5 for the past year.

literally. rascally fucken reagan.

he looks like wile e coyote in my mind right now. but like a hyper realistic version and i can see all of the bacteria festering around the corners of his mouth. he just kind of walks around thrusting his scrawny, also very disease-infected pelvis upwards and around as he saunters. he tries to make it seem like he's lost control of his own physical movements, but you know it's all an act.

you both know that as he finally makes eye contact with you and turns his roughly furry, but mostly patchy pelvis towards you.

your last words are: " ... but i voted for palin!"

hey we elected a black man before we'd let an icky woman in there.

(insert "nervous man who can't decide which button to press" meme. one says "massacre children" and the other says "enslave women" and our friends on the scotus just wanna press both, gosh darnit.)

like yeah: let's get this sausage party a-goin'!👍🏻

just hope i live to see the day when it will be legally required for every man to have a biomechanical gun implanted onto his gentials. it'll become known as "the crotch cannon" and you better believe there's upgrades available, friend.

this ruling has been brought to you by country crotches. don't ask what you can do for your crotch cannon, ask what country crotches can do for you. now, with a word in praise of country crotches, here's justice thomas:

"my fellow americans,

lol it's an actual gun for my junk? nice!"

i mean they already have "crotch rockets", right?

it's the logical next step. c'mon, elon. bring TSLA back from the dumps a little? bit of the old pump and dump, yeah? 'cept we're physically pumping this time, babaaaaayy!

(oh, might have forgotten to mention that one of the crotch cannon's available add-ons is a motor that exists solely to replicate the sound of a revving harley davidson and emit coal exhaust. for the proper gentleman.)

(so basically the rest of the story is elon musk was in on it the whole time, invents crotch cannon, becomes a politician, takes over world, everyone loses lol. the end.)

(also maybe a foregone conclusion, but no girls allowed in any of this kickassery. back to the birthing hive with you, lady!)

-interruption for reality: this is how a a crazy person deals with extremely bad news. sorry if my angry cynical toilet humor is upsetting. i figure: it's already gotten worse than i had ever imagined, might as well go extreme and have a laugh. i don't know how else to process anything. i'll shut up now.-

Both are areas where there could be interesting things to say, but all the coverage consistently misses all opportunities.

i'm writing about a complicated situation where i'm not necessarily in the right, like, i'm deliberately making myself vulnerable and not portraying myself as someone who is wise and knows everything, and you're asking me if i might possibly be wrong here, yeah, that's the underlying point i'm trying to get it, i _don't_ know everything and i _do_ get it wrong sometimes and there is a good argument that i got it wrong here. i'm definitely open to, like, particularly if someone who _is_ of romani origin feels _comfortable_, like, nobody's _obligated_ to do it, but if somebody with lived experience that i don't feels comfortable educating me on how i got it wrong, i'm really open to that!
