A New Bad Comedy Fix

I love really bad (by popular standards) comedy. Monty Python, Keeping up Appearances, The Lair of the White Worm kind of stuff. I had never considered any country except the U.K. could really hook me up with my fix, until yesterday.

An old friend of mine kept going on about this band gone T.V. series I would like. Because my time on the net is so limited and we haven’t had T.V. in over a decade I never heard of them nor did I really give these guys a chance when she recommended them. I guess she figured that out, and decided to take matters into her own hands. So, yesterday I received a mailing envelope from her and inside was their CD and a DVD of their show. I watched most of the series last night and loved it. They are completely hilarious, even though they are from New Zealand the humor is among the best of the British.

Thanks S. I hope you weren’t planning on getting those back.

Here’s one more great scene from the show:

INTJs rock!

I’ve been told INTJs (like myself and many of my friends) are cold assholes with no sensitivity. That is pure bullshit, we are just really really smart. So fuck all you other Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) types.

If you don’t know what you are Take The Test

* Other personality traits being the same, an iNtuitive person (one who grasps patterns and seeks possibilities) is 27 times more likely to have a high IQ than a Sensing person (one who focuses on sensory details and the here-and-now).

* Again, other traits being the same, an Introverted person is 8 times more likely to have a high IQ than one who is Extraverted; a Thinking (logic-oriented) person is 2.5 times more likely to have a high IQ than a Feeling (people-oriented) person; and a Judging person (one who seeks closure) is about twice as likely to have a high IQ than a Perceiving person (one who likes to keep his options open).

* Moreover, if you encounter an INTJ (Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging), there is a 37% probability that his IQ places him in the top 2 percent of the population. The probability is 20% for an INTP, 15% for an INFJ, and 8% for an INFP. These four types account for 66% of the high-IQ population but only 6% of the total population.

On the Brighter Side

My last post here was a little gloomy and I will be trying to get away from that, but thought I’d share what I discovered upon further reflection of that post. My town is small enough I know these people who want to violate my Rights . I know where they work, play, sleep, what kind of pets they have, who they are having affairs with, what they drink, etc…. When you can no longer use the shroud of anonymity to believe these individuals are faceless animals a whole new reality opens up.

But on the brighter side, there is a local couple here who are interested in buying property adjacent to The Gulch. This is a piece that I would like to have owned by like-minded individuals, and they seem to at least mostly fit that description. They are self described libertarians, who have a flock of chickens and I know he likes to shoot. Along this same thread of thought, a friend from the NW (who I know fits) is showing up this week to make an offer on another piece adjacent to The Gulch. Oh, and a couple of pieces not in the “greater gulch” area, but just over the hill sold this month. I’ve worked with the guy who bought one of them, I don’t think he’s any more libertarian than most here (which is still better than damn near everywhere else) but he’s already asking about buying goats and chickens and wants to homestead. I haven’t had neighbors in a long time, I just hope they all turn out more like my best friend P who I met as a next door neighbor, and not at all like that prick neighbor from Chicago we once had.

Just ran across this excellent quote about Nock’s priceless essay Our Enemy the State, and felt it really relates to my recent posts.

This very great book reminds us that the State is at once a myth and a terrible reality. It is a myth in the sense that it has no validity outside the twisted, crooked mentalities of totalitarians. It is also a reality in the sense that, whenever it is allowed to usurp the throne of Government, it not only commandeers the power that corrupts but, in order to give finality to its ascendancy, it must acquire for itself, and for itself alone, the absolute power that corrupts absolutely.

Where the Mind Goes

……..the emotions follow. At least, I would guess for INTJs like myself. I can’t remember the exact point when I stopped being a libertarian and became an anarchist. I do remember when I quit being a (big L) Libertarian and became a libertarian, it was when the party endorsed a state level politician (and I forget the ass-wipe’s name) who had a bad gun rights record. But, as for the time between that and now there are no mile markers I can readily pick out. During this time my beliefs have changed a lot. Most easily the largest change is that I no longer believe there is any way to salvage the system by working within the system. This was a huge disillusionment for myself. I was a lot like the day I had to take my poor sick dog out and shoot it. Now I’m not stupid enough to think that the very few people who think like I do would have any chance for forcing change on the system. Not that that would even be an option, since it’s is direct opposition to my beliefs. So what I’m left with is my little island I call Goat’s Gulch where anarchy thrives even if we do still have to deal with the system on things like property taxes. I used island because not only is it the only area near here where anarchy exists but more and more it is the only place where I feel as if I can truly, honestly exist. It seems as if society has given up on rationality, but I know really what has happen is that I’ve given up on society. I once believed that all these authoritarians who I’m surrounded by were just mistaken because they didn’t understand what they were doing. But, as the years roll by I’m more and more convinced that these people are consciously, knowingly trying to limit others rights and freedoms. Like petty high school clicks, or rats wantonly hurting other rats, or maybe more generously like crabs pulling another crab down who is trying to escape the crab pot.

A Woman Scorned

They are definitely pack animals, that shouldn’t be taunted.

A wannabe Don Juan was tempted to a motel in Wisconsin by the prospect of a tryst with one of his numerous lovers. But instead of a night of passion, according to court documents, he found himself confronted by four angry women – among them his wife and another girlfriend – and on the receiving end of a revenge attack grisly enough to make any philanderer think again.

Prosecutors are investigating the convoluted incident that ended with the man tied to a bed with his penis superglued to his stomach, an apparent punishment for his womanising ways. The ambush was said to have been set up by the man’s wife after she found out he had cheated on her with a number of other women.
