[edit] RobSmith on Islam

One of the indicators of the current status of the wiki's, ahem, "community" is the fact that RobSmith is happily skipping around adding stuff to Islam-related articles without any apparent scrutiny.--ZooGuard (talk) 19:03, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Well scrutinize it asshole, and cut with the personal attacks. nobsIt all depends what ISIS is. 20:29, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] For the continuing amusement and satisfaction of the patrons of this fine and doughty bar...

1 indictment against Kent Hovind and Paul Hansen (October 2014). Might be ol' Hovis boy might not be living up to his bragging about his release date after all.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 19:25, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Very interesting - so what does this mean for him? Tielec01 (talk) 01:00, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
He will one day face the wrath of the Blades of the Darkmoon. |₹Λ¥$€₦₦ Red rose 02.svg With just a head. And a burlap sack for a body. 01:40, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
In his previous one he actually had a proper lawyer. That was a public defender, but said defender still did way better than anything Hovind has ever put forth representing himself - David Gerard (talk) 11:51, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
I wonder how many extra years over the normal amount Kent will earn himself? OOH, perhaps he'll earn a few perjury and contempt of court charges. --Revolverman (talk) 12:49, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
The PD basically said "my client is too much of a delusional nutter for mens rea to apply, therefore not criminal contempt". Of course, that was the previous charge that the feds have dropped in favour of this one.
I think the key takeaway here is that the feds are conclusively sick of Hovind's shit - David Gerard (talk) 12:58, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Coincidence?

My son just texted to tell me there is a goat in the student union building on his campus. Shortly after, I learned that Teresa Caputo will hold LIVE! THE EXPERIENCE not three miles from my house on Wednesday.

So does the awesomeness of the goat offset the fake psychic? Or should I feel depressed about this? (talk) 20:38, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

The goat moves in mysterious ways. AugustusCaesar (talk) 21:11, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Pope Francis : God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand'

Time for the Schlafly schism

What's a Schlafly? Oh yeah, him. Ho hum. SophieWilderModerator 19:45, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Cue everybody immediately jumping down the Pope's throat with "God and science aren't compatible." Nullahnung (talk) 19:56, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
He seems to be saying that evolution and the Big Bang don't refute god but require him. It's pretty much the old argument from first cause. SophieWilderModerator 20:05, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Pope Francis is a godless communist. nobsIt all depends what ISIS is. 20:40, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
The Pope is a Goat.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 22:26, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
The Pope on a Rope.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 22:28, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Pope Soap on a Rope.--nobsIt all depends what ISIS is. 22:46, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

But if God isn't a magician, how does the Pope explain magnets?! -- (talk) 07:56, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Fucking magnets, how do they work!? --Revolverman (talk) 09:53, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
They harness the power of the tides. - Smerdis of Tlön, for the defense. 12:19, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Well, God takes his non-existent Magic Wand and, if he strokes it hard enough, magnetism happens.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 12:28, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

I’m making it up as I go along, says Pope - David Gerard (talk) 13:47, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] I Don’t Support Feminism If It Means Murdering All Men

the onion. Ikanreed (talk) 14:55, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

And meanwhile in the actual real newspaper world, this notable personage had an opinion piece in Guardian about how there ought to be more tumblrs about how awful men are. Satire is dead. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:37, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Non-ironic Tumblrs about how men are awful are a goldmine of unintentional comedy more often than not. See: Move the Fuck Over Bro. |₹Λ¥$€₦₦ Red rose 02.svg It's dangerous to go alone! Take this. 01:26, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
