Presidential height wigo

Height doesn't appear to be completely irrelevant: e.g. http://www.hackwriters.com/tall.htm. What would It would say about Palin's chances I wonder.

Ed's Momma

There is a broader, perhaps slightly less biased, article on Wikipedia about Riva_Poor

Wroted a booky wookimg. (Note the Edit commentimg) 22:53, 10 March 2010 (UTC) SusanG  ContribsTalk

I wonder if Ed's mummy dearest is an anarchist? The 4 day work week is a very typical anarchist plank. I guess if you're dumb enough for moonieism, them more or less any other movement that promises you free cake can count on your vote. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:48, 10 March 2010 (UTC)
I actually like the article, I think it is the most productive thing I have ever seen come from Ed. ETA: It is of course a sub and needs to be re-written, but it's still a contribution. --Opcn (talk) 00:04, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Is there anything of substance to this man, or does he have to continue riding of the coattails of his ancestors? Right now the best purpose I can see him serving is to visit schools and warn children to do their best to avoid becoming Ed Poor. This would at least provide a welcome break from screwing the dead. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 00:45, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
How dare you! maligning the personality[sic] of user 188, the famous creator of the Age template at Wikipedia. Are these not qualifications enough for one man? 00:51, 11 March 2010 (UTC) SusanG  ContribsTalk
Granted, that is impressive, although not as amazing as his one-man attempt to categorise movies featuring coaches with eleven year-old daughters. Still, I'm sure someone could use his kidneys. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 01:05, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Ed's edit comments on the WP page for her are kinda funny. Corry (talk) 01:34, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Problem with the 4 x 10 hour work week in manufacturing, at least, is it screws up the "overtime equation". To get the magic time and a half (and the extra production mgmt needs) people either have to work really long days, or come in on Friday, a day they probably made plans for. PS, I improved the WP article, because I can. The CP article is still as it was. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:05, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
I'll admit that Ed's Riva Poor article isn't too bad, in that Ed resisted the temptation add one of his "related to the WP editor, Ed Poor" notes. It made me think that if Ed had been born the n'er do well son of Caesar, he'd have spent his time wandering around the empire, scrawling "father of Edus Poorious" on any any monument raised to Caesar. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 11:14, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
(@human) Perhaps the economy shouldn't be organized around the needs of the managers... — Pietrow 14:48, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
The OT part is based on the needs of hourly employees. The 40 hour 4 day week fails both workers and employers. Now, the 32 hour 4 day, on the other hand... ħumanUser talk:Human 22:38, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I thought that was given when talking about 4 day weeks? After 8 hours you just get tired and make mistakes (well at least I do). — Pietrow 10:32, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Incompetent Obama

OH NOEZ! Incompetent Obama has 915.000 hits on Google... to put it into perspective, here are a few other significant hits on Google.

TOFU FREEDOM - 575.000 hits. RENAISSANCE PORN - 713.000 hits. PIZZA BASTARD - 870.000 hits. OBAMA ORIGAMI - 1.720.000 hits. WATERMELON GLORY - 1.870.000 hits. MICROWAVE OBAMA - 2.450.000 hits. BEETHOVEN OBAMA - 9.580.000 hits.

If you guys think you know more about the internets than Ken, then go ahead and take it by storm like he did. Are you #3 in China? Didn't think so. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 14:47, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Gentleman Maquissar, has it occurred to you that the high number of hits for Watermelon Glory is because of Operation Watermelon Glory which is due to begin by the Ides of May? Operation Watermelon Glory will certainly be the Waterloo for atheism on the internet. Expect further developments as prominent Creationists including some who have published books and have many results when you search for their names on a certain search engine beginning with "g" will link to Conservapedia's articles on atheism as part of Operation Watermelon Glory! Stay tuned for further details! Kendoll (talk) 15:11, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

PALIN EXCELLENT (including, one presumes, the genuinely excellent Michael Palin) : 7.4 million. Bondurant (talk) 18:02, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
By the way, a certain LucyJ has pointed this out on Conservapedia. I'm curious to see what they will answer her. And the news about Operation Watermelon Glory are truly distressing! We should plan a proper counter-operation. Step one, of course, is choosing a cool name. --Maquissar (talk) 20:13, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
UPDATE. Apparently TK thinks that the mainstream media should cover the fact that "Obama incompetent" has about 900.000 hits on Google. Here's what he wrote: "News items are not encyclopedic. They are intended to convey to our audience thoughtful, often provoking, interesting news items not typically conveyed in the liberal MSM."
Dear TK, this is very well worded, but a bit inaccurate; so allow me to be a bit less diplomatic now, and rephrase the same message in a more blunt, but also more precise formulation. This is how I think it should read:
"News items are not supposed to have any correlation with the real world. They are intentehttp://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=Obama+Giraffed to pursue our own agenda, glorify conservatives and discredit liberals, by showing facts and quotes taken out of context or distorted in some other way, something that the mainstream media somehow still fails to do satisfactorily."
Well, I am afraid that there is some lexical confusion here, TK. You see, there is a word for this type of "information", not meant to reflect reality but to convince people of something, whether it's true or not. It is called propaganda. --Maquissar (talk) 22:17, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Sorry Ken. but Obama good gets 140 million hits. EddyP (talk) 00:06, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

So irrelevant is Ken's babbling here. All that searching Obama and evil does is show what sites/articles have the words Obama and evil on the page. To prove a point, a search of tea face returns over 70m hits, proving just how meaningless any of this shit is. SJ Debaser 17:16, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

The only thing google is good for (besides finding web pages about stuff you want to know) is the game of finding a search criteria that returns exactly one hit. Then the game site adds it, eliminating it and giving you 20 internet pointzes. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:04, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

KENDOLL ASSBAG - 2810 hits. Not too shabby! Corry (talk) 07:51, 14 March 2010 (UTC)


Having flogged the KAL007 horse to death, CP's resident OCD sufferer proceeds to resurrect the corpse in various new guises:

and that's just today's emissions. Seriously, I know he lost family on board, but the man needs counseling or something. At the moment he's making Andy's "0 mental illness" claims look dodgy. Oh wait, Ed and Ken have already blown that out of the water. --PsygremlinПоговорите!

He is not just doing it on CP, he is quite active over at WP as well. For example, he is the reason the Wikipedia article on Boris Yeltsin has a section on KAL 007 that is almost as big as the section on his second term. Internetmoniker (talk) 10:24, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
There's a lot of people at CP I view with contempt because they're idiots and/or assholes, but Bert, I just pity. The man suffered a horrific loss a quarter century ago, and he still hasn't moved on. You're right, he needs counseling. MDB (talk) 10:31, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
I agree on the need for counseling, but until then, could somebody at least make him read the basic help files? It's just strange to see Mr. Sysop Lite (edit/upload/block) with 1,800+ edits asking how to insert referencesimg when the CP Commandments even link to a dedicated help file. He's so obsessed dedicated and yet can't be arsed to even leave his "KAL007 KAL007 KAL007" path for five minutes to learn how his publishing platform works? --Sid (talk) 12:41, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
I've always basically ignored Bert, and never looked into his ramblings, but I just noticed he believes that KAL007 landed safely on the water and the passengers were hauled off to Soviet prisons, where they may remain til this day. He is certainly crazy enough for Conservapedia. DickTurpis (talk) 12:56, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Well that maybe explains the not moving on part. If he thought his relative had been killed in the crash maybe he could have come to terms with that, but if he really does think there's a possibility that they're still alive somewhere then that's a lot harder to move on from isn't it? I'm sure most people would feel they have to do whatever they can to find the missing person. (talk)
Actually it is sometimes harder to move on if you don't have a body to bury. The families of soldiers who are MIA or whose children disappear can suffer extended anxiety as opposed to those who are able to complete their grief by knowing what has happened. That said, and without wanting to sound like a hard-hearted cow, it is interesting that it is Bert who is making all the running with the tragedy rather than his wife. Of course it may be his way of helping her although prolonging the hope in the possibility of life sounds rather cruel.  Lily Inspirate me. 02:56, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
So, in many ways he's a one man version of the people who don't want any kind of 'normalized' relations with Vietnam until they return all those living POW/MIA's there. Do gotta feel a bit sorry for him. Ravenhull (talk) 02:59, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
EC) He mentions his wife quite often (forget her name - senilty hello!) She is credited as joint author on some of the stuff I believe. Prolly not a wikiholic like Bert. Or I can imagine her saying "Enough, already, time to move on"? 03:02, 14 March 2010 (UTC) SusanGContribsTalk

Ed Poor tidbit

I do like the delicious irony in the latest Ed Poor WIGO (and well done to the WIGO writer for not using the term "irony meter"), but my favourite part is the edit comment. How does Ed know that liberals hate pointless 81byte stubs about crap films? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 00:37, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Concise, accurate, no-nonsense article. "The Celestine Prophecy" is, in fact, a movie. Ed got 100% of his facts right. --Maquissar (talk) 01:29, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I don't get that edit comment either, "liberal" moonbats are pretty much the target audience for that book & movie. Internetmoniker (talk) 10:51, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Unless Ed is getting self-referential and by "this sort of thing" he means his Ed-stubs and by "liberals" he means us, in which case, we don't hate them, Ed, we just find them a source of mirth (about as much as you calling Lara Croft "slutty"), coming from the much-vaunted user 188. --PsygremlinSermā! 11:17, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
So I just looked at CP's Tomb Raider article and noticed a few things. First off, it's complete and well written. Where did they steal it from? I looked into wikipedia, but I don't see it there. Second, about 95% of the article was done by Karajou.... Guess we know what the swabbie does when he finishes with the "girl in the yellow dress."

Bible in school libraries

Is the moaning idiot right? I'd expect every library to have a bible: it is literature a good fun book whatever your viewpoint. As part of the heritage it ought to be there. 07:18, 14 March 2010 (UTC) SusanGContribsTalk

In a subsequent post, he says RationalWiki is barred from his school computers. I am going to guess "parodist." Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 07:23, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
the schools I attended had several versions of the BIble. There is no legal restriction on a school having them, or using them in comparative religion , social studies or english classes. I could understand a school not investing in them though if they dont use them much. Hamster (talk) 07:26, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Then someone would cry out loud that they should burn the books on evolution from school library as well, as a fairness issue. Thieh[Talk needed] 07:48, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I have 5 or 6 of them. I consider it my duty to have them on hand. ħumanUser talk:Human 09:14, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I doubt that anything that calls itself a "library" could possibly not have at least a few couples of the Bible. I mean, it's the book that had the greatest impact on Western culture and literature. --Maquissar (talk) 11:33, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Second greatest. You just can't beat "How to get Girls by Hypnosis". –SuspectedReplicant retire me 12:13, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I also have 6 of them. I consider it my duty to have screwed 5 of them together to use them as a doorstop and to have hollowed 1 of them out to hide the porn from my ex-girlfriend. 15:57, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I have my trusty and infallible KJV. Tempted to pick-up an NIV. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 16:00, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Maybe he was only looking in the 'science' section... StarDelta (talk) 21:13, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I suppose he could be right: anyone wanting to consult the Good Book would probably have their own copy. The same would be difficult for all the books on (e.g.) Evolution. They've probably just one copy that hasn't even had its pages cut. 21:28, 14 March 2010 (UTC) SusanGContribsTalk

Another question on English

Is it lying lowimg, laying low, or some other phrases? (I know that with Ken it should take more than 4 edits, but still) K61824Insomnia? Masturbate till you pass out 16:31, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Both technically make sense, and reference.com's aggregation stuff seems to recognize both in some way. That said, "lay" always sounds better than "lie"[citation NOT needed], and anything Ken writes is wrong by definition. ~ Kupochama[1][2] 16:57, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
Chickens "lay." Everything else is "lie." So says Mrs. Practice's grandmother. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 19:15, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
I would try to make fun by saying "From what Mrs. Practice's grandmother said, people got 'lied', not 'laid'", but that'd be beyond my linguistic ability. ThiehZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 19:56, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

I think the idea is that "lay" means "putting something down"--laying an egg, laying pipe, laying a new floor, and "lie" is positioning one's self in relation to the ground....TheoryOfPractice (talk) 20:02, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Granny G said something similar: you lay a table but lie on a table. 20:12, 14 March 2010 (UTC) SusanGContribsTalk
But a chick can also get laid on a table? --GTac (talk) 20:20, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
"Many times: many, many times." (UK oldies [Round the Horne] humour) 20:28, 14 March 2010 (UTC) SusanGContribsTalk
I'm going from memory on this. "To lay" means "to place". (I'm going to lay the book on the table) "To lie" means "to put yourself in a horizontal position". (I'm going to lie on the floor.) There are also various idiomatic and set usages. --BobIt's windy! 20:24, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Subediting the Bible

The traditional conservative Christian response to Song of Solomon is that its an allegory for God's love for the Church, and its not about sex at all, huh-uh, no way, no how. Which is crap. It might also be an allegory, but its pretty clearly about intimate love.
There's one passage in there, though I can't remember which one exactly, that I managed to crack up a former pastor of mine by describing it as saying "why don't we go do it in the yard?" MDB (talk) 14:27, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
Song of Solomon ain't got nothin' on Ezekiel 23:19-20: "Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses." -- (talk) 06:40, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
The fun (or sad) part is that I wrote TK an e-mail telling him about the typos and misspellings in 1 Corinthians 1-8, and I wrote a list of corrections, saying that it's more fun to criticize their ideas than their ortography - but I guess he just doesn't read my emails anymore. But would they accept spelling corrections from a godless lie-beral anyway? ;) --Maquissar (talk) 14:21, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

The pages are just ordered by the number of views they get. So: page rank n = n-th most viewed page larronsicut fur in nocte 06:39, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Thicky's back. What's a "wikifactor" 11:49, 15 March 2010 (UTC)##
wikifactor is an rather obscure but useful metric for the impact of a wiki-site. It's based on the wp:h-index (The h-index is an index that attempts to measure both the scientific productivity and the apparent scientific impact of a scientist. ) for scientific publications. larronsicut fur in nocte 14:09, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Confused Jesus

"And to the married, I order this-- No, wait, it's not me, but the Lord who says this-- A wife should not leave her husband."

A moment of aberration, or a more calculated denial of trinitarian doctine? Perhaps it's just that voices are sometimes difficult to hear even when they're in your own head... MaxAlex Swimming pool 08:26, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

That's 1st Corinthians, meaning its Paul speaking, not Jesus. No contradictions there -- the earlier parts have Paul saying "its just me, Paul", but this time, he says "this is from God Himself, not just me." MDB (talk) 08:47, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
Speaker aside, it was the "no, wait" bit that caught my eye. I'm not saying it's a contradiction - just a very odd turn of phrase which doesn't do much for the speaker's authority. MaxAlex Swimming pool 13:20, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
For another example of an odd, tin-eared, anachronistic turn of phrase, there's "You're allowed to do what I'm saying, but it's not mandatory." There's also "abstenance" at the top of the diff. Maybe one day we will build a machine that can check people's spelling. Cantabrigian (talk)
The "no wait" part was just stupid. Even if they're going for modern phrasing, something like "this comes from the authority of the Lord, it is not just my advice" would work far better. MDB (talk) 14:21, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Conservapedia running stats 5, Kendoll's version

Has this been discussed (for some odd reason it starts at 2, and I can't find the one unenumerated one or the one with index 1) or does it require attention at all? K61824What is going on? 12:04, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

The one without index is here. Easy if you have a mirror on your local file system you can run find and ls on. :) I don't see how it requires attention though. Mountain Blue 13:38, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

I don't think that cp:User:Conservative knows which of his perhaps 100 sub-pages (hereimg and hereimg) are somewhat of relevance... larronsicut fur in nocte 15:26, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
For those who are curious, Conservative has a more-or-less complete index of his subpages on his talk page. I guess those links are too petty and meaningless to put on his user page - they'd only distract from the important things like the list of every song he's ever heard. Anyway, his subpages are a hoot, especially the half-finished pages listed under "sandbox." This one's my favorite. Colonel of Squirrels (talk) 15:43, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Freedom of Speech

This is just too perfect. If anyone here has an unused sock, now would be a great time to head over there and add some inconvenient facts to their articles. Nothing snarky, just add some genuine truths and see how long it takes them to get shot down. Colonel of Squirrels (talk) 02:21, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

one more that might be added to the wigo as a PS. That whole story made my brains turn inside out. "Huffpo censors crazy ex-wrestler for being 9/11 truther!" Also, I was amazed at how many people everywhere can't parse "levels" of truthism - all Venture is questioning is why and how WTC7 was brought down, and he's basing his query on what might be a very legitimate petitiony thing. Big question I did not see anywhere: are some buildings built with demolition materials already in place, knowing none will last "forever"? Or not, ever? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:35, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
I haven't looked into this petition, but Venture's claims are straight Trutherism. He certainly uses all their memes - thermite, free-fall acceleration, "straight down into their own footprint," the obsession with WTC7, etc. There may well be degrees of crazy among Truthers - say, between those who proffer conspiracy theories and those in the "government let it happen" camp. However, Ventura clearly falls into the "9/11 was an inside job" camp (he wouldn't have shown up on Alex Jones's site otherwise) so I think your concern is unfounded.

Wow! he gets oversight handed to him straight up. The CBP has benefits! Even Ed and TK had to wait for their 'promotions' to oversight ability. Clearly the need for deceitful cover-ups over there has become great. Lovely to see Jacob oversighting people pointing out his own lies. Straight from the TK book of How to be a Cunt. Well done to Jacob for overtaking Bugler as Best Parodist on CP. --PsygremlinSiarad! 13:33, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
I dunno, I'm still more of a Bugler fan. He operated more through hilarious ad-homs, whereas 90% of Jacob's actions are blocks rather than parodic comments/additions to articles. Tetronian you're clueless 13:36, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
In that respect I agree (altho I'm biased against Bugler, thanks to the sleepless nights he gave me over on CP). However, no other RW mole has managed to get oversight before. Maybe he can go for bureaucrat next. --PsygremlinSnakk! 13:42, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
It is odd that Jacob got oversight rights so quickly - perhaps he has had some private chats with Andy? In any case, it would be awesome if he becomes a 'crat. I wonder what he would do with it. Tetronian you're clueless 13:44, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
AFAIK none of the current goon squad were given oversight at the time of their sysop promotion. Karajerk, Ed, TK and JPratt were all "promoted" to oversight last year, as Andy felt the need to cover up more and more.PsygremlinSiarad! 13:53, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
It is ironic how Andy repeatedly claims that "CP doesn't censor" in spite of his liberal (haha) oversight policy. Tetronian you're clueless 14:42, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

(Unindent) I think Bugler was the best parodist of all time, in that parody is supposed to be funny. Bugler's brilliant work made me laugh out loud many times, and I'm snorting right now just remembering some choice examples. JacobB, on the other hand, is occasionally funny, but he's far more akin to TK than to Bugler. Jerkishness for the sake of jerkishness isn't funny. And yet, I think a case can be made that JacobB is the greatest parodist of all time, for at least two reasons. First, no parodist has ever earned the rights he has. Second, his encouraging Andy to jump in with the CBP led directly to a lot of attention to CP from the outside, culminating in the appearance on Colbert. Not all of that is on Jacob, but he needs to get some credit.

If you're reading this Jacob (and I'm pretty sure he is), why not try taking more inspiration from Bugler and less from TK? Burndall (talk) 14:45, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

I second that. Nicely put, Burndall! Tetronian you're clueless 14:48, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

More Jpatt Twitter Stupidity

Anything to pass the time while I'm hot and bored here.
"Rape is no excuse to kill another human being" says the stupid one, who clearly has no problem with a woman being lumped with an unwanted child on top of the trauma of being sexually assaulted. Let's hope it's a situation he's never faced with.

However, taking Johnny's statement a bit further, it would appear as if several justice systems disagree with you, Johnny boy.[3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] Or is it the Conservative double standard about "Aw, he's too tiny, Festus. Throw it back, we'll get it when it's big." --PsygremlinSermā! 13:28, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Very ironic that a strong pro-death penalty conservative would be make such an extreme statement.... Guess we know how Jpatt stands on capitol punishment. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 16:08, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
At least people who say fetus=human being are consistent when they reject abortions for rape victims. Certainly no one would condone killing a baby who was born from rape, and in their view it's the same thing. (The notion that they are the same is, of course, ridiculous, but given that they hold these views I can at least appreciate the consistency. This logic also seems to condone the murdering of abortion doctors.) DickTurpis (talk) 16:18, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, Psygremlin, but I really couldn't think of any better title. Read Andy's new statement on censorship policy at Conservapedia. ... Just WHERE do we start? --Maquissar (talk) 15:41, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Well, some parts of that statementimg are true in a way: "Our rules are specific and their application is clear and almost never disputable." - Absolutely true when you consider that the various rules are tailored explicitly to favor sysops and that most people end up being banhammered for all eternity with mail disabled. Oh, and let's not forget that if you manage to contact sysops, they will show their true colors and will either tell you to accept that you're wrong by default or drop some more abuse on you, followed by a quick "I never said that! He's obviously faking these mails and is thus a lying liberal! Good thing I banned him before he could hurt the project!" if you expose said abuse. --Sid (talk) 15:58, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

I understand blocking for "liberal vandalism", but how can you block for "inserting liberal multiculturalism and world view" and say you do not censor anyone for their ideas? Really, people at Conservapedia... if ANY of you is reading this, please make a RW account and come here to partecipate in the discussion, because, I admit it, the logic of this keeps eluding me.

Reinventing reality seems to be a popular pastime at Conservapedia. The first rule of intellectual honesty apparently is: never admit you are wrong, unless you happen to be wrong about an inconsequential and secondary matter, in which case you can gallantly acknowledge your mistake and show the world how open-minded you are. --Maquissar (talk) 20:33, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
