Okay! Sometimes I write that there are honest to Odin movie stars on our birthday list. Who's here today?

Odin.

But Sir Anthony does not get the Picture Slot, because I wanted a Pretty Girl to counterbalance the human filth in the prediction section. Jane Badler would also have been an excellent choice in her iconic role on the original TV series V, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Bebe Neuwirth, regardless of the fact that she is nowhere near twenty feet tall.

Many happy returns of the day to all the birthday boys and girls on our list.
 
 
Prediction: On 23 March 2013, all American citizens must have a Radio Frequency Identification Device implanted in their hand, as mandated in the Obamacare bill.

Predictor: Pastor Paul Begley, 17 February 2012

Reality: Here's a link to his You Tube page.

Here's a link to Snopes.com, who calls bullshit on his You Tube page.

Undeterred, disgusting grifter Paul Begley changed the date of his prophecy (not unlike now extinct grifter emeritus Dr. Harold Camping) when it didn't come to pass this year to 31 December 2017, which is why I'm publishing it today.

This is an example of what I consider the biggest problem facing humanity today. If you want to believe a certain thing, you can use the Internet to feed you just the garbage you want to consume. As a bonus, those sources will tell you that anyone who disagrees is an idiot or a liar or both. Usually, there is a liberal vs. conservative split in these shouting matches, but not always. There is a feeling of the school yard arguments, with a lot of "No, you are!" repeated by both sides. We call them wingnuts and they call us libtards and both sides use the phrase "low information voters" to describe the other.

Who wrote "the center cannot hold"? Just some dirty Irish terrorist sympathizer. Good Americans like us can ignore that, right?

Looking one day... INTO THE FUTURE!

OMG! Is it like another whole new year already? What will happen then?

More birthdays! More predictions! More fabulous babes!

Join us then... IN THE FUTURE!

  1. Although I think Martin Bashir went too far in his put-down of Sarah Palin, I'd like to paraphrase his opening so that it fits the likes of all the Paul Begleys out there; "This present dunce, scraping the bottom of the barrel of his long-deceased mind, said. . . "

      Since Princess Snowbilly is a very special case, I disagree. But then, I am very uncivil.

  2. I recall a sci-fi story that used a universal tracking device. But as it was an older story, it was a bar code, not an RFID chip. The story pointed out that hands and other limbs were lousy places to put the code, since they could be amputated. So the code went on the forehead.

    Pastor Idiot's paranoid ravings have the same problem of ill-conception.

    But boy! Remember when the bar codes were considered confirmation of Revelations, and a sign of the upcoming Apocalypse would be when we all had to have them tattoooed onto us? We were so young and innocent back then, before a mild expansion of the for-profit health care system tipped us into dictatorship and the End of the World...

    1. The back of the neck would be convenient as well.

      I know it's easy to think of what we are currently seeing from the right wing seems entirely unhinged and unprecedented, but if you recall that the Clintons were branded as both international drug cartel kingpins and serial killers, it all feels like a bit of deja vu.
