I think we can all agree this is enough to create a meme accusing Jon Stewart of racism.
I am four episodes into the sixth season of Star Trek Deep Space Nine. My near continuous intake of fictive, intergalactic violence over the past month may not have catalyzed any violent acts recently, but I do have an overwhelming urge to purchase a Klingon bat'leth.
This particular bat'leth was retrieved by U.K. authorities during a knife amnesty program in 2008.
I think it is untrue that "violent images increase the sum total of violence in the world” only on a world devoid of human life. If the author meant that the images themselves, with no effect on human beings, increased the sum total of violence, then that is obviously hogwash and not, in any meaningful sense, true.
I can imagine some Bostonians might feel increased inclinations towards violence due to the images on their news broadcasts.
When the time comes to purchase a shotgun (note: the time is always now) I suggest you impress your friends and terrify your enemies with this training DVD. It is called the Art of the Dynamic Shotgun, and it is made by the firearm magazine company Magpul that recently decided to leave Colorado after they passed gun control legislation restricting the capacity of magazines to fifteen rounds. Makes sense, right?
You'll be shotgunning the heads off of your homemade white walker silhouettes in no time.
Think 2008. The country was hysterical over their new messiah.
A professor at Washington State University wrote an interesting piece about this antichrist phenomenon. I only care or know about this because I worked there at the time. You will have to forgive me for posting something from the New York Times (or the New York Slimes, as Mark Levin would say).
He, not unexpectedly, jabs at conservatives a bit, but he is right about Obama fitting evangelical's antichrist mold in some respects.
Jimmy Carter will henceforth experience a recurring nightmare where Peter Robinson chases him down and cracks his skull like a walnut between his shoulder blades.
Peter: "Last question: how does one accumulate 400,000 twitter followers?"
Rupert: "Well, Peter, first you have to start an account."
"First man to drink ends his career."
Alaska goes to Rainier and Hawaii goes to Shasta?!?
Prediction: ANWR will be expanded to encompass all of Alaska, and Hawaii will be depopulated to make more space for community gardens filled with Pineapple Express (for those of you that have not seen the movie, that's marijuana).
Israel P.: Please tell me he is not doing this study on the public dime.

Get with the times! It's the public quarter now.
I don't know if an Obama visit would be a good thing. Haven't you read all the stories of businesses closing and people dying after an Obama visit or speech?
Ditto. Can we get that line nudged a bit further west. If the family farm is bisected, I think I'll be living on the eastern half, thanks.
We'll be traveling single file to hide our numbers.
He needs to wear a camelbak under his jacket and run the tube down his sleeve.
Nothing good happens to the class clown?
Ha. Thanks, Rob. I'll keep that in mind.
Meanwhile CNN wonders if this photo makes dear leader eligible for a third term.

Israel bombed a convoy travelling from Syria into Lebanon and a military facility outside of Damascus this week. Your thoughts?
