Good News – Barbie is clinically depressed!


Another stupid clickbait non-story from the Metro (note: browse their sidebar links at your own risk). Not even be worth a mention.

Except…I had only two seconds earlier shut down the kitchen radio in the middle of a feature about how it’s finally okay to talk to the straights about your mental illnesses.

Where do they coordinate these things? Starbucks? Journolist? Down grubby back alleys in urban London? It’s hard to escape the feeling you’re constantly being played by dumb people with a broad agenda.


Manuel Noriega, he dead. And with that, the commenter Formerly known as Skeptic wins dick in Dead Pool 96! And we know what that means — Dead Pool Round 97 comes on little cat feet Friday, June 2, 6pm WBT!

Be here or don’t be here. I’m not the boss of you.

Where do they coordinate? Well we don’t call em the “Blue Checkmark Mafia” for nothing. Mailing lists like Journolist are so 20th Century.

I don’t think there’s any need for explicit coordination for the identical and interchangeable elements of a hive mind to think and act alike.

Or perhaps its like the dance of a school of fish. It may be one single fish that initiates a change, but it triggers the same motion in the other so quickly it seems to happen instantly.

In either case, there’s no actual thought involved. simple stimulus/response conditioning, all the same for all the drones.

Oh but I did—I clicked all over “Metro.”
I want one of those pink BIC lighters and a jars (and jars) of the Krispy Kreme Coffee spread. And I feel so sorry for new babies. Bring back names like Thomas, Richard, and Henry. And Elizabeth, Sarah, and Mary.

Coordinated? Nah.
It’s not like they all read the same web sites, follow the same people on Twatter, Skype each other all day long and watch the same programs on “the telly” is it?

I mean, they’re all unique individuals in the same line of work who just happen to have exactly the same great progressive thoughts at exactly the same instant, on exactly the same day after Dark Lord Soros sends out the morning mission briefings.

No, that’s silly. Besides if it WERE coordinated, you know as well as I do it would be those pesky Russians doing it.

One of the strongest pieces of evidence I ever saw for coordination of stories was when Joe Biden witlessly said (without prompting or context) that the plight of transsexuals was the “greatest human rights issue” of our time. Oh, that wacky Slow Joe, we thought. Within a year and a half or so, the great normalization push which had previously been on nobody’s radar had begun.

The witless parrot was just repeating what he’d heard in the smoke filled rooms, and simply forgot the messaging hadn’t started yet. Illuminating.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
