This pic was taken at some point in 2007 and is from a random pic search.

I saw it yesterday over at Mark Allen via my brother.

My whole family are fans of Turing.
And of sarcasm.

I love sarcasm and parody.

Something to laugh at on this here Yom Kippur!

I love The Daily Show, I find Jon to be one the funniest men in television today.
Here's a small portion of Mr. Stewart handing the asses of McCain, Obama and Clinton back to them in the shape of brisket.

So, did it feel good to not use LJ for a little bit.
Gotta say, I didn't feel any different, my Internet addiction just wet to different avenues.

the majority of my f-list participated whether it was consciously or not I couldn't say, but most of the communities didn't participate, which eh, kind of sucks since a huge amount of content and influence comes from the comm's and not individual users and such.
I really like LJ and I don't want to leave, the platform is convenient and fun, the networking done here is by far superior to MySpace and Facebook, in my opinion.
My paid account expires on the 14th on May (my birthday, duh) and I don't want to regress into a Plus account in which my LJ will be swarming with ads to do with things that what I write about would be significant.

Anyway, there were a few things worth blogging about, but they happened on Thursday and were properly resolved and on Friday when going out for Friday night supper was somewhat irritating due to constant racial slurs but people who say "I'm not racist, I love the black man" - when he's your gardener, quite obviously.
And Right Wing people who try to convince me that a vote for a fringe part is a Throw Away vote. Not it's not, it's voting for my principals.
Any way it was a really irritating evening, but at least I got to hang out with friends and Purim accessories.

Purim really washed over me this year - probably because I've come to associate Purim very strongly with terror attacks and there were only warnings this year with no actual explosions, shootings or kidnappings, there is however until Monday for a terror attack to be disconnected from the Holiday, so we'll see.
I mean yeah, I went all Ester and Vashti are ancient feminist icons (for different reasons obviously) and I went to Uni with butterfly antenes in order to get into the mood, on Wedensday, which is all before Purim, so nyah.

Pretty boring all in all.

Here's a pic which as [ profile] sabotabby said should be spread throughout the intertubes.

Wouldn't it make an excellent t-shirt?!

If you've seen Juno you'll be amused.
If you've seen Juno AND you're Jewish/are well versed in Jewish culture, you might not want to drink anything while watching this.
If you haven't seen Juno this may contain spoilers to the very general plot of the movie


Hat tip to [ profile] qilora who linked to it.

But they were not.
Which is a shame, because they are so pitiful they don't need to be parodied.

#1 Will the stupidity know no end! Were there a GD who actually smacked His/Her/Its followers upside the head. The whole region from Southern Lebanon to Southern Israel has been experiencing tectonic shifting - earthquakes that is - there was quite a big one on Friday where Mummy and I ran under a door way, it wasn't that hard, but still left my knees a bit wobbly.
Those people who are somewhat detached from reality* are trying to find metaphysical reasons why this is happening in the Holy Land.
Obviously, the gays are causing the earthquakes.
Yup, there's the sounds, rational reasoning I like to find in my leadership (well, obviously not mine-mine, I'm not considered a whole human, being a woman and a queer one to boot).

#2 Ahmadinejad is continuing his paranoid anti-Israel rhetoric. Israel is a germ spreading the vileness of the West in the Middle East. Oh, that's nice, real mature Mahmoud, way to show a fraction of sanity one would imagine a statesman should posses.
Then again he was always rabid. I wonder if he's aware of the fact that by bombing Israel with the A-Bomb, he'd end up murdering a huge amount of his Palestinian brethren... those dictators never do think of that little glitch do they.

Yes, these are serious News articles.
No, I'm not laughing because I'm too busy mocking!

*Not all religious people are detached from reality... only those in government.

Though really it's just a response to the whole "God billboard" thing that you can find (mainly) in the US. We also have those, though they're not as, um, how you say? I dunno, theses billboards make it seem as though God were an actual person, and not a spiritual entity.

Though, I guess the whole Jesus thing kinda makes it easier to pretend God was/is/whatever a person.

This video was created by Mario DiGorgio of whom I'd never heard before. I first saw it here and [ profile] morin brought it my attention, so kudos to her!.

And that means it's Towel Day (In Memory of Douglas Adams Z"L), take a towel wherever you go and be prepared for anything wherever you are.

It's also fictional holiday found in Terry Pratchett's excellent Discworld novel "Night Watch" when the Treacle Mine Road Uprising Memorial Day, where we fight for Truth, Justice, Freedom, Reasonably Priced Love and a Hard Boiled Egg!
Wear a lilac... or just light purple.

Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no Equal™:
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The Starbucks:
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the House of Mochas forever.

In addition, the genocide in Darfur must be stopped.

וכמו כן, צריך לעצור את רצח העם בדרפור.

It's the Treacle Mine Road Uprising Memorial Day!
Any of you who has read Night Watch by Terry Pratchett was there and knows that we must fight for Truth, Justice, Freedom, Reasonably Priced Love and a Hard Boiled Egg.
Join me in Remembrance and wear a lilac.

See how they rise up!

Melody's Vogon Poem
See, see the strong sky
Marvel at its big orange depths.
Tell me, Nurit do you
Wonder why the ardvark ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel blah.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your fklubt facial growth
That looks like
A mayonnaise.
What's more, it knows
Your barbiturates potting shed
Smells of olive.
Everything under the big strong sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm avocados.--

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
