Huh.

So. Looks like this nutty butterball set off another nuke, huh? Sorry. Still not feeling all hand-wavy about it.

I think it’s the hair. What is it about the Kim Jungs and those loopy haircuts? I understand nobody wants to tell the boss he looks like an idiot — particularly when the boss is a megalomaniac psycho — but c’mon. Really.

p.s. Chances are Davem123 is going to win hisself some dick.

I was sent by she-who-must-be-obeyed to look for a fish pitcher. The antique store employed an emigré from Baltimore, MD. Took me several iterations to get from the aquatic arts section to the ceramics.

I’m new here, so have no right to expect anyone cares about my opinion — but shouldn’t a celebrity have a minimum timespan? I mean, nobody knew who this guy was 10 days ago. Shouldn’t a celebrity be SOMEBODY for, say, a full month?

And, shouldn’t there be some “global” notoriety? Like people in France AND NY both know Clark Gable or Beyonce or John Kerry.

I think they set off a nuke by accident, or it was a lousy misfire back a few years ago when, like, half of North Korea was on fire.

While some might question Dorners celebrity status, I believe that anyone who dies during their “15 minutes of fame” should qualify. Infamy is a form of celebrity, just ask Joran Van Der Sloot (or Kim Young Jowls, above.)

Cough …. I’m proud to have assisted North Korea with their impulse implosion and flying wedge systems.
I remember when I was at LLNL – that that silly Californian University lost the hard drive with all the US and CCCP nuclear design secrets on it.
It eventually it turned up shoved down the back of a photocopier – or so they claimed in a report to the NSA.

Needless to say, the panting, whinneying, mooing and whining of the Yankees here about North Korea having nukes is appauling. Get over yourselves.
After all, you murdered two New Zealand Prime Ministers for going anti-nuclear.

Just outta curiosity – at what moment does celebrity begin? The second hit movie/album? The 10th murder?
And when would it be declared? When their name shows up in Senegalese newspapers?
Davem123 has pretty well captured it with “15 minutes of fame.”

Hmmmm, when does celebrity begin? Well, like it or not, I think that even in the 21st century, celebrity comes wrapped in newspaper.

Hence this stab at a definition:

*You are a celebrity the moment your name appears on the front page of three major newspapers,on the same day, for the second day in a row.*

With Dorner, it was not that he was a vicious murderer that made him a celebrity. It was the fact that he gave the left and the rupauls little stiffys.

Having no measurable artistic ability myself, I have to rely on other sources. That’s why I keep coming back here.

Love what you did with the chest badge on Dear Leader III’s uniform. It captures “I Heart Radiation”, but my first thought was that it was some kind of a startled mouse deaths-head. Mickey Maus meets the SS, as it were.

Just out of newbie curiosity — does Mr Oceania always post the non sequitur? And do others always step around it? Its kind of humorous but weird too.

For example, I was not aware that the US killed not just one, but TWO, New Zealand PMs. Or that North Korea is a craphole NOT because of oppressive commie dictators but because the US opposes said oppressive dictators having nuclear weapons.

Assuming a person actually BELIEVES this stuff and isn’t trolling, how does said person actually deal with everyday life? I suspect a troll, but I’m new here.

Nobody is entirely sure what the deal is with Oceania, tomfrompv. A troll, definitely. He can sometimes be quite funny (at least, I find him so). Sometimes even intentionally.

But he can also be a right dickbag. I quietly biff anything too far over the line, but I let stuff through if he minds his manners. The last thing I need is to piss him off and motivate him to make a real nuisance of himself.

Whether he’s a genuine paranoid nutcake or just plays one for trolling purposes, who knows?

I have no reason to post anything that isn’t accurate, or a falsehood. I post as my morals and conscience dictate, and say what, when I please.
I see US funded pundits and various military and political people coming over the years to try to change NZs anti-nuclear policy. If Chernobyl and Fukushima weren’t enough for them? Or you? Why is the US pushing for NZ to remove its anti-nuclear laws, and push for reactors and weapons on our soil – yet has a problem with North Korea?

If you wonder why you are at odds with the rest of the world, then you need to ask yourself why.


Comment from tomfrompv

OK, Like all Americans i’m uninformed. So I had to read up on these assassinations in New Zealand by the US. Hmmm, couldn’t find any PMs that were assassinated. In fact, only 3 PMs have died while in office since WWII. Heart attacks and that sort of thing. No assassinations.

Sooooo, what were the names of those two poor men killed by the US?

Until then, I’ll be researching why the US is forcing NZ to revoke its anti-nuke laws. Hopefully, I’ll have better luck finding this info than finding PM assassinations!


Comment from S. Weasel

Good heavens, Oceania, of course I don’t wonder why we’re at odds with the rest of the world. The rest of the world is at odds with the rest of the world. Everybody is at odds with everybody. Everyone, every nation, every organism ultimately acts in its own self-interest. The US is the biggest dog, so it calls down the most opprobrium, but we are neither more nor less self-interested than the next nation.

Tom, you deserve a medal. Or a tranquilizer dart. I suspect you won’t find anything very coherent.

Comment from tomfrompv

I checked that out too. Yes, NZ is a nuclear free zone, even if nobody was assassinated. But that only applies to nuke weapons. Nothing in their laws prevent a power plant, although NZ hasn’t built one yet. They prefer the higher price of solar, wind, and fossil.

HOWEVER, nuclear medicine is just FINE down there. You want some radioactivity to kill a tumor — no problemo. barium in your enemas? Bring it on. Seems they really only care about weapons and American naval ships.

Still looking for dead PMs, killed by the LAPD or CIA.


Comment from Oceania

A nuclear power free zone …
Nuclear medicine? Tc99(m) from a cow for imaging and the odd import of I and Cr for labelling … then the is the T, P32, U and S35 for wetbench work. oh I missed PET – but why not have an MRI?
I cannot think of a man made isotope regularly used in oncology. Linacs however are, although I view them as crude nasty tools. Unless one adds gold nanoparticles with specific antibodies to be taken up for nano ablation – radio is a waste of time ….
Take adenoid cystic carcinoma. Myb transcription is upregulated, making them radio-resistant.

If you have cancer, man made radiation sources are probably not for you …. there are better approaches.

I hope that you learnt something today?

Firstly, under your copyright laws (which you shove down people throats) the owners of the ‘Hibbit’ may want to disagree with you. Namely, the NZ Taxpayers whom funded this little movie adventure. Why don’t you ask Peter Jackson? Cos that’s what he said!

Oh, by the way…speaking of copyright laws, any of you old enough to own the first authorized edition of the Lord of the Rings books in the late Sixties? It had an introduction by Tolkien that was a sniffy little statement about something like “people who care about the rights of living artists.” The backstory is that the American publishing market was full of notorious copyright violators, who’d been pirating LotR for years before the authorized edition was released.

It is, by the way, German copyright law that that is incredibly heavy and gets foist off on the rest of us. With the exception of the Copyright Term Extension Act, which is sometimes called the Mickey Mouse Protection Act, because Disney pushed so hard for it. Hence, the mouse will stay under copyright protection until the 2020s.

My mother bought that edition of both The Hobbit and LOTR. I read them every summer during my teens. I got a little something different out of them each time, which has made me more willing to accept the possibility that just because I don’t happen to like a certain book at my current age, doesn’t meant that I might not have liked if I were younger. I don’t think I’d be too likely to give that disliked book another chance in a couple of years, though. There’s just too much stuff out there nowadays.

You can now get permits to hunt Hobbits, as their numbers have become such that they are destroying the environment.
In other words, they are just like Muslims!
