Stupid People on the Radio

It bothers me when people say stupid things on the radio, like DJs not understanding that Chvrches spells it that way (rather than Churches) for pretty much a purely SEO reason.

...never mind the fact that bands are choosing their names for good Google ranks...

However, sometimes the stupid can be funny, like a comparison that's being made right now in mattress ads, "Do you know how hard it is to carry a mattress down the stairs? It's like having a pet dolphin that you have to carry out for walks."

I like that image.


The nature of a federal government

You pay taxes, that money goes into a pot, and then gets redistributed in a way so as to take advantage of economies of scale. Rush Limbaugh is apparently upset about this (making up the total lie that his tax dollars are being spent to pay for Sandra Fluke's wanton orgies)...

... and so is Jon Stewart. "Reimburse me for the Iraq war and oil subsidies, and diaphragms are on me."
