[edit] Scott Adams

File:Dilbert hugging & killing.jpg
Because it's funny (& also creepy). ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 02:18, 22 November 2015 (UTC)

I lost it at "I'm a normal boy." Blitz (Complaints Box) 16:42, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
As creepy and wrong as Adams is, I can't help but be reminded of a good point made by one of the first marines in Iraq during the Iraq War. Though, to be fair, he's talking the infrastructure in third-world countries, not the first-world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OubHHtNM94s&feature=youtu.be&t=52s Psycho Gecko 4:54, 25 November, 2015 (UTC)

[edit] On the reception and detection of pseudo-profound bullshit

This is my favorite paper. It's something that needs to be automated to you can it to your local idiot and go "Look, the computer can tell what you're saying is bullshit, please stop" ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 16:56, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

At first I thought this paper was a joke, but after doing some research it seems that this is an actual journal (I don't know how credible or reputable it is). The discovery that the term bullshit has now appeared in a journal delights me to my very core. Samstr (talk) 00:08, 4 December 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Is there a reason

The story about demons flying commercial is repeated from yesterdays post in WIGO clog? Oldusgitus (talk) 10:15, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Commented the CLOG out Pippa (talk) 11:11, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
I thought about doing that Pippa but didn't want to stamp on anyones toes. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:21, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Ginger Jihadis

I ain't giving that filthy webshite my traffic, but I'm going to guess. Is this Milo's retaliation for that CopperCab fellow's tirade against him? Blitz (Complaints Box) 19:16, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

"Ginger jihadis"? That weird even by Breitbart's standards.--Kugelschreiber (talk) 23:03, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Which is why I strongly suspect it's a hitpiece against CopperCab (the guy who made that "Gingers have souls!" rant) in retaliation for his latest video ranting about Milo. Blitz (Complaints Box) 03:15, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
I can't decide, who's more brainless, CopperCab or Milo?--Kugelschreiber (talk) 04:05, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

[edit] Daily Fail / Video Game photo

Has the offending photo been removed from the article, am I being particularly stupid, or is there another reason why the WIGO doesn't make sense to me? rpeh •TCE 21:58, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

In the comparative size image, the rocket on the far right is a fictional rocket from the Kerbal space simulator.70.62.74.74 (talk) 14:25, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Ah thanks. Never heard of that one. rpeh •TCE 18:25, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
Likewise. Would the average reader be expected to know this? A quick reverse image search shows various versions of this chart exist & DM has probably just posted the wrong one without realising. A little sloppy maybe but pretty weak as a Clogosphere entry about the MAil "outperforming itself yet again". ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:30, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
It's a pretty subtle one. I should probably have spotted that the "Kerbal" design is ridiculous, but then again, today's "ridiculous" is tomorrow's "normal" in a lot of stuff. I'm glad it wasn't just me that didn't spot it though. rpeh •TCE 20:06, 8 February 2016 (UTC)
