Look at the video again and you can see, hear, and feel the contempt in Santorum’s voice. He hates the president. To his core. It was unfettered, unabashed, unfiltered and utter, the utterest hatred for Obama I’ve ever heard. There was no uncomfortable laughter to mask it with, as Romney might employ; there was no soundbite of manufactured outrage, as personified by the hollow shell of a man known as Newt Gingrich. No, this was sincere disgust with the man who currently serves as commander-in-chief. Over what? Obama’s wanting our nation’s youth to pursue a college degree, or to enroll in a technical or vocational school? Over espousing higher education? Seriously?
Now Santorum’s advisers may have told him to tone it down, Rick, in the hours since that infamous ad hominem attack. But there’s no use hiding such deep-seated abhorrence. Rick Santorum embodies the worst trait of the Tea Party at its nadir: irrational hostility toward one’s political opponents. Thankfully, there were TV cameras there to capture the nuance of “What a snob!” Because reading that very quote from Rick Santorum probably elicits a “Oh, there goes Rick again, asking to be Googled!”
But seeing and hearing him say it makes it crystal clear: when it comes to Obama, Santorum is sleeping with the enmity.
“What a snob!” says the idiot with 3 advanced degrees from college.
I hate politics. Now I have science on my side. It’s easily apparent that people are frequently delusional about their own intelligence, now a study shows that it’s not just their own character they’re mistaken about, but that of others too. This of course means that people are wholly incapable of selecting the best person to be a leader which in turn leads to mediocre policies and governments.
On the plus side, everyone seems to be able to agree who the worst people are.
I wish we said “fancy” in America. As in, “I fancy you.” It’s such a more agreeable term than “I have a crush on you.” What’s a crush? Like, I AM A BOA CONSTRICTOR AND I AM GOING TO IMMOBILIZE YOU WITH MY MISPLACED AND OBSESSIVE AFFECTION. “I fancy you” is like, you’re so shiny and glittery and I just want to put you on a shelf and look at you for a while ‘cause you’re fancy.
When “Pokemon” was first released in Japan, there was an odd phenomenon between children ages 7-12, particularly in those using headphones to listen to the sound effects. Increase of nosebleeds, irritability, insomnia, and addiction to the game, playing for hours and hours on end and crying to the point of vomiting when the opportunity was taken away.
Roughly 70% of these cases ended in suicide.
In almost every case of the aforementioned symptoms, despite gameplay time recorded to the limit of the internal clock, the game had not progressed further than “Lavender Town”.
A closer analysis of the game revealed a tone in the audio of the music for “Lavender Town” at a pitch undetectable by fully developed human ear drums. Within weeks every unsold copy of the “first edition” the game were recalled silently and the game was re-released with re-mastered audio for “Lavender Town”.
The widely known version is said to be missing three extra tones, as well as the unique, binaural tone of the first edition, although this is unconfirmed due to the rarity of working first edition copies; in the known few that remain, the internal clock and ‘battery save’ have all timed out and ceased function, and in many cases the game will freeze upon entering any battle.
The audio post above is the original file that was heard by these children.
what the fuck this is creepy
An episode of pokemon also has the record for making hella kids have seizures
I barely listened to two minutes of this and I’m already feeling like killing myself
Take a creepy reality
Take a creepy possibility
Take a second creepy reality
Connect one reality to one possibility and then to one other reality.
If whoever happens to land the Republican nomination somehow ends up winning the presidential election, this must be the tune that plays right before and as they walk out to every appearance he or his VP makes.
“ATTENTION AMERICA, THIS IS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. WE HAVE TAKEN OVER THE RADIO TOWER. GEORGE W BUSH, CAN YOU HEAR US? WE DID IT.”
Birthed from womb of Dragon’s maw
And borne unto the stars
By light and darkness cast aloft
Are dreamtide oaths resworn
Moon is swathed in ever-light
Ne’er again to show eclipse
Earth, with hallow’d bounty reconciled
Yet fleeting is the reverie
When moon from shadow has egressed
Guided forth anew by light made manifest
Two bound by ties of blood
By Time and Fate then wrest apart
Unto lunar light and Gaian breast
