What's depressing about it? I support gay rights and I support gun rights. I might send these guys a donation, even though I'm not gay.

There are so many weird things on The Smoking Gun that I wouldn't dare post here every time I read something and yet... how is this for hysterically funny and utterly disturbing, at the same time?

What makes me really laugh is that they've included a picture of the horse.

My kids are asking me what I'm reading but I thought this was better to share with you guys than them! I won't say much more except a brief quote...

Quote:
As detailed in an inventory form, deputies seized, among other pieces of evidence, a .357 Magnum, a coffee can filled with feed grain, and a bottle of Bertolli extra virgin olive oil, which, as the property sheet notes, is "rich and fruity." Which seems just about right.

Default Worst. Book. Ever.

BY THE SEVEN GREEN MOONS OF GONGLE!

The worst science fiction novel ever written???

by Ken DeVries

I have learned to beware of superlatives. If I tell someone that The Devil With Hitler is the weirdest Hitler movie ever, and they have to tell me about Hitler, Dead or Alive, or They Saved Hitler's Brain, I just smile and nod, wishing I'd kept my mouth shut. I listen to people talk about the best restaurant in town or the ugliest baby on earth or the greatest rock band in the universe and say nothing. Ah, but what I am thinking... This is why, when I tell you that Galaxy 666 is the worst science fiction novel ever written I don't expect you to believe me.

Simply put, Galaxy 666 by Pel Torro does for literature what Plan 9 From Outer Space did for the cinema, and for the same reasons. In my religion we have a term for it: "bulldada." Bulldada means that the object in question was created in all sincerity as its creator's very best effort to do something truly good, yet because of an inherent judgmental flaw deep within the artist's nature it miscarries so wildly that it becomes transcendent in a whole new way. It tips the scales in such a strange direction that they fly up and strike you a bloody gash upon the brow. You can't fake bulldada -- it can be created only out of a heartbreaking ineptitude which reveals at once all the tragic flaws of human nature.

It might be easier, epsilon, if you added these new thread-type posts to the Wonderful World of the Web thread - which deals with all the wacky and ridiculous stuff that can be found on t'internet. Thanks!

OK, sorry. Can one of the mods move them over there?

Ew. A rather gross but nevertheless fascinating article.

Link.

...But you probably don't need to bother reading it if you already know what rhinotillexomania or mucophagy are.

I once read a Slashdot posting about a court case involving some Scientologists suing some web-guys who had set up a mirror site of their sacred texts.

Some way into the court case the web-guys told them that they had put all of the Scientologists website onto a new server = 127.0.0.1. The next day the Scientologists were outraged and demanded that they remove it out once....

Now doubt there are some people out there who just don't get it.
