Idiots ruin everything. I say leave the stuff out there and let the chips fall where they may. The more we impede natural selection, the worse this will get. In a really imperfect world the Darwin Awards would have to be suspended and who wants to see that happen?

Rich Man Buys House Next to Ex-Wife, Erects Giant Middle Finger Outside
by Neetzan Zimmerman
Nov. 15, 2013
A Michigan man has reportedly gone to Internet-ready lengths in order to troll his ex-wife with a daily reminder of his feelings towards her.
According to a person claiming to be the ex-wife's daughter, the crazy-wealthy Bloomfield Hills man, identified only as "Alan," allegedly purchased the house next door to his ex, and proceeded to move in with his new girlfriend Tiffany.
He then went a step further and purchased an expensive bronze statue of a middle finger, which he placed on the back porch and aimed at his ex-wife's house.
As if that weren't quite enough passive aggression, Alan ensured the statue was visible 24/7 by shining a spotlight on it after dark.
"Alan and Tiffany are the best neighbors," tweeted Lenka Tuohy, "but ew who does that lololol."
Apparently the statue has had the unintended effect of pissing Tuohy off as well.
"[I]ts hard for me to enjoy my baths now because my fav tub is in my moms bathroom which faces out towards tif and alans house," she wrote, adding a frowny-face emoticon.
When a friend pointed out that Alan's gesture was making him "look like an idiot," Tuohy concurred: "Like lol someone's not over my momma!"
Benjamin Duddles, 41, of Waukesha, Wisconsin dialed police around 4:20 AM to say that he wanted “a female removed from his bed,” adding that he was not sure “how she got into his apartment.”
When the police arrived, Duddles reported that he had let the woman into his home and she “just went into his bed and fell asleep.” The woman, Duddles complained, (as recounted by the reporting officer, was “now snoring like a train and he wants her out.”
The officers conducted their investigation, and ascertained from Duddles that they “drank together, had relations and she fell asleep.”
After repairing to his living room, Duddles returned to his bedroom and could not roust the snoring woman, “so he called police."
The police officers were able to arouse the woman (not identified by name in the report) and determined that she was both healthy and not in any sort of distress.
The officers advised Duddles that a snoring woman in his bed was not a police matter since he had invited her into his home. Duddles was “provided the comfort of his couch for the evening” and directed to “work out the ‘issue’ in the morning.”
Police mug shots tell a lot about the job that the police do and the job that the criminals do (keeping the police employed). Some time ago there was a mug shot contest at the Anaheim, California Police Department where officers would vote on the best mugshot of the week on any given week and a pool. If you arrested somebody who was selected by acclaim, you'd usually win about twenty dollars. Today, I'm sure that's no longer politically correct.
This blog has many elements and depending on your interests, may pique your imagination...or not. I urge you to be unreasonable. Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. The unreasonable persist in trying to adapt the world to themselves, therefore all progress depends on unreasonable people. The more unreasonable you are, the more likely you are to enjoy this blog. All men dream, but not equally.
If you're a socialist or a Marxist, you'll find that I poke fun at your absurd notions of "good government" on a regular basis. So you might not wish to follow this blog because you'll be offended.
John Locke said, "One unerring mark of the love of truth is not entertaining any proposition with greater assurance than the proofs it is built upon will warrant." I like what Locke said. We can't theorize without adequate information because when we do we inevitably twist facts to suit theories rather than theories to suit facts. In this blog and in my life, I try to maintain this perspective.
Either you believe in our essential spark of shared divinity, or you succumb to our human insecurity. Either way your conscience lets you slice it, the main thing is to earnestly do what is right at the time.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
I'm a former tinker/tailor/soldier/sailor who has now decided that maybe it really wasn't all done for nothing.
