“I know you weren’t gay, I was just hoping you were bi.”

Another holiday skewed by the time that has passed. Of course it sounds nice to tell your children that the pilgrims and the Indians sat down and shared a feast together, that is not what really happened. The real story of thanksgiving is filled with greed and bloodshed. It has even been touted as the most terrifying bloodshed in new world history. When the pilgrims came to the new world from england, they were very unprepared and had to rely heavily on handouts from the generous Indians. The Indians weren’t even invited by the pilgrims to the meal. The pilgrims invited the Indian leader, whose name was Massasoit, and he in turned invited around ninety other Indians, which the pilgrims were not pleased about. The pilgrims indulged in their brew, which they preferred to drink even more than water. This daily inebriation led their governor, William Bradford, to comment on his peoples notorious sin, which included rampant sodomy. The pilgrims got drunk and fucked things in the ass. Happy Thanksgiving!

(Excerpt from this site)
Just days before the alleged Thanksgiving love-fest, a company of Pilgrims led by Myles Standish actively sought to chop off the head of a local chief. They deliberately caused a rivalry between two friendly Indians, pitting one against the other in an attempt to obtain “better intelligence and make them both more diligent.” An 11-foot-high wall was erected around the entire settlement for the purpose of keeping the Indians out. Any Indian who came within the vicinity of the Pilgrim settlement was subject to robbery, enslavement, or even murder. The Pilgrims further advertised their evil intentions and white racial hostility, when they mounted five cannons on a hill around their settlement, constructed a platform for artillery, and then organized their soldiers into four companies-all in preparation for the military destruction of their friends the Indians. Pilgrim Myles Standish eventually got his bloody prize. He went to the Indians, pretended to be a trader, then beheaded an Indian man named Wituwamat. He brought the head to Plymouth, where it was displayed on a wooden spike for many years, according to Gary B. Nash, “as a symbol of white power.” Standish had the Indian man’s young brother hanged from the rafters for good measure. From that time on, the whites were known to the Indians of Massachusetts by the name “Wotowquenange,” which in their tongue meant cutthroats and stabbers.

Ep 268: Duped

“It’s a good thing you zoomed in to the quantum level.”

This world is filled with more quackery than you can shake a stick at. Especially in these oh so tough economic times you keep reading about in the paper, or hearing about on your favorite “non biased” news station. At a time when people should be doing their best to work together so we can all get through this shit, we still have instances of bullshit miracles  creeping up here and there by bullshit people who lead bullshit lives. Just like the article read, these people are losing business in their normal practice of prescribing bullshit remedies that do nothing more than stimulate our own internal placebo effect, if that… So they have to keep looking for the next big thing. The next miracle cure all for anything that ails you in the present, as well as the future. These people are no better than the criminals who would rob you at gunpoint on the street, or the criminals who would stalk your children as they innocently frolic to and fro in the school playground. It’s a new world out there today than it was when our parents and their parents were growing up. You can’t trust everything you hear and see in the newspaper and the television. You can trust us, but only because we’re honest, and have made it a point in our podcast and show notes to point out when people are being retarded fucking liars and scam artists. Just be careful, and know that the device being used and marketed as a cure all at the quantum level is nothing more than whoo-whoo bullshit. It doesn’t work, and it honestly has nothing to do with quantum physics. At all… It’s illegal, and if you are the person putting out these bad typo ridden pamphlets and business cards filled with lies, watch your back, because we’re coming for you next.

Ep 267: Good Deals

“I can’t walk to the toilet so I’ll just poop right here.”

Tomorrow is finally the day the new droid comes out. I have personally been waiting three years for a phone on verizon that is better than the xv6900. Lots of promises have been made, but they have all fallen short. The storm was a joke, the storm 2 probably the same joke, just told a different way. The touch pro family is decent, but nothing that makes me want to get rid of the phone I currently have. It’s weird how they discontinue the good products, just to release more shit products. Someone should really explain to them why the business model they have adopted sucks. Who knows, maybe they don’t give a shit, because if you want to buy one of their phones for a halfway decent price, you have to lock yourself in to a two year contract. It will be interesting to see how many people renew those contracts once they are up. Don’t get me wrong, verizon has done some good, and compared to the other cell phone providers here in the Flathead Valley, they are the best. They have a fantastic network, if only they would spend that much time and effort into making sure the phones they allow you to use on the network were good.

My main problem with verizon is that they always load the smart phones they sell with crap that no one wants. Why would you pay extra money every month for a stupid verizon app that lets you download music, when you can get the free Gsplayer and copy your own music to the device? Why would you pay more money every month for the shitty verizon navigator program, when you could get free google maps for windows mobile, which works much better. Oh right, because they locked out the gps to only work with the verizon navigator software. Granted, you can spend countless hours trying to unlock the gps yourself, reprogramming the rom and whatnot,  sometimes it works, sometimes you completely brick your phone. It’s unnecessary bullshit. Stop putting useless crap on phones please. They had better not fuck around with that shit when the droid comes out. I want the phone as google intended it. This means NOT having to pay all these extra fees just to get the functionality that the phone should have came with in the first place. So once again I say, please don’t fuck this up verizon. You NEED this.
