Junk Food Idiocracy

The Idiocracy flourishes in an boom-bubble environment. This ampm is a convenience store chain owned by BP America, Inc., and apparently, marketing folks there take a dim view of the intelligence of their demographic base. This creature thing in the company’s commercial looks like a derelict version of H.R. Pufnstuf after about two decades of eating at 7-11 and [...]

Idiocracy Friday

Friday, November 29, 2013 17:58 2 Comments

Today is Idiocracy Friday, and as usual, the bread-and-circus lines were fully energized and ready for action. Even the Financial Post is getting in the game, posting this video from a Walmart where TVs (I think?) are worth a little blood, skin, and bones. Note the breadth of the Times article, including photos and video [...]

The Culture of Extended Adolescence

Thursday, September 26, 2013 7:00 5 Comments

For this post, it’s appropriate to start off with two quotes from the article: Child psychologists are being given a new directive which is that the age range they work with is increasing from 0-18 to 0-25. …”There’s an increasing number of adults who are watching children’s movies in the cinema,” says Furedi. “If you [...]

Or is that #star #awesome #LookAtMe #NarcissisticMe #EverybodyLookOverHere #ThankYouForAllYourAttention #YoDudeWishIWereYou My hashtag is: #WhereIsTheRealSubstance? Facebook, Twitter, digital cameras with instant upload, HD phone video capability, photo shares, and lightweight websites that are cheap to string together, etc., have made everyone a “star” (note the quotation marks) without them ever exhibiting a goddamn inch of talent [...]

Passive-Aggressive Readership

Saturday, July 6, 2013 13:54 1 Comment

So I get another crazed person writing me and all upset about … well, I dunno. A guy sent me a crazed email that smelled curiously like a passive-aggressive personal attack disguised as a rambling, incoherent inquisition. After 14+ years of dealing with the public cauldron of loonies, one gets very good at sniffing these [...]

Romper Room For Adults

Friday, November 2, 2012 9:34 No Comments

As I often note, here’s another peek at the rapid disintegration of adult maturity. The Boobus Infantile Idiocracy has attracted the attention of the Mail Online, a mag that loves this kinda stuff.

Thomas Sowell on the Idiocracy

Thursday, October 18, 2012 21:25 1 Comment

Some people – and readers – get furious with me when I write very bluntly about the American Imbecilic Adult Adolescent Society, but now I can’t get into trouble (right?) because I am merely quoting Thomas Sowell: “How are children supposed to learn to act like adults, when so much of what they see on television shows adults acting [...]

When People Attack, With Fiction in Hand
