Snark Attack: Random Musings from The GWS

SW/Web developer: ~12 years of C# (yay!) & ASP .Net MVC, Java (blargh!), Python (woot!) experience. I'm currently hitting faucets and writing for crypto to stake/invest . | I work part-time with animals. Sadly, my cerebellum and medulla oblongata aren't Einsteinian in proportion. However, I possess a Brobdingnagian vocabulary and get by with being a barbigerous logophile. I can probably write you into bed, if smashing Capitalism and Patriarchy turns you on. Kink is political!

Only Fools and Horses (My Least Favourite Mammals): Part 1

30 Dec 2023 4 minute read 2 comments Great White Snark

Generally, I don't care for insects nor reptiles, but I like mammals. Humans, however, are my least favourite mammals, arguably the most detrimental and destructive species on the planet. Horses are a distant second (and it's got nothing to do with t...

Christianity: A Religion Reserved for Cishet White Trash Only (The Same Old Story, Told Again)

25 Nov 2023 2 minute read 0 comments Great White Snark

I could open this by recounting my encounter(s) with a particularly annoying religious zealot whom wouldn't leave me alone and respect my right to freedom from religion, despite me telling him multiple times (and in multiple ways) to go forth and mul...

"You wouldn't shoot a policeman, steal his helmet, go to the toilet in it and then give it to his widow, would you?" So begins an elaborate send-up of anti-piracy ads on films (particularly as distributed on DVDs), as depicted in Graham Linehan's m...

Back in the SSRIs (Joining the Prozac Nation)

8 Oct 2023 1 minute read 0 comments Great White Snark

I have no faith in psychiatry as a profession. In my opinion, it's for people who really want to be doctors, but don't have what it takes to make it in medicine. I have as much faith in the pills psychiatrists prescribe. That's because every time a c...

A Note on Celebrities, "Influencers" and Other Shillers of Crap

6 Oct 2023 3 minute read 2 comments Great White Snark

Why anyone, particularly in the cryptosphere, would be influenced by or base their purchasing decisions on what some air-head celebrity has to say about anything is beyond me. Those folks need to get their heads thoroughly examined for signs of intel...

Religious Stupidity, Revisited Yet Again: Ethics and Morality, for the (Supposed) Love of God

5 Oct 2023 3 minute read 4 comments Great White Snark

Here are two easy ways to piss me off (not that I suggest you try them if you know what's good for you): Claim that religion is the source of human ethics/morality. Make stupid statements that "God is Love" or similar. In both cases, you have ignor...

Manbearpig is Real!

4 Oct 2023 1 minute read 0 comments Great White Snark

I'm super serial! Well, at least, he's as real as digital art can make him appear, anyway. (I'm still not sure if he's half man-bear and half pig or half man and half bear-pig, though, since he can't be half of each of three things.) Since I could, I...

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh." — George Bernard Shaw; playwright "Too many people confuse being serious with being solemn. Now I suggest to you that a group of us could b...

Fascism in America: Different People, Same Agenda(s)

3 Oct 2023 8 minute read 0 comments Great White Snark

Today, after my monthly psych appointment/checkup, I stopped in at the local book exchange to see if they still had a Special Edition copy of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials, but sadly and unsurprisingly, some discerning browser had already taken...
