WTF WEDNESDAY

WTF Wednesday, lets-try-this-again edition!

First, in honor of there having been drunken gummies at my birthday party recently (gummy bears soaked in vodka…and yes, I recently had a birthday. 22 now! Yay!), have a gummy bear wtf:

Here

I just want to know this person’s thought process. “I’m bored, lets cut open gummy bears, put them back together in weird ways, and take pictures of it and post it on the internet? I like the weird gif at he bottom of the page…

Next Star Wars WTF:

This got included, because it’s kinda like, “Wow, someone had too much time on their hands…” It’s actually pretty awesome…just…wtf, you had free time and you thought, “Hey, let’s make an animated Star Wars rap video…”

Next: Palin WTF:

Here

Bristol Palin is hitting the speakers’ circuit and will command between $15,000 and $30,000 for each appearance, Palin family attorney Thomas Van Flein said Monday.

Bristol Palin, 19, is listed on the speaking group’s website as available for conferences, fundraisers, special events and holidays, as well as women’s, youth, abstinence and “pro-life” programs.

Okay, so her mom was famous and she had a baby as a teen? And that makes her qualified to get paid that much as a speaker? I’ve seen a lot of weird shit in my life, I’ve experienced many hardships, let me be a speaker. Hell, 2 on ’em at most would pay for a year of my schooling, and I’d catch up with my past schooling with 6-8 more of ’em. Within a few months, I’d be set for life…

Next, cat wtf:

Here (warning: Video starts autoplaying, and there is no pause…)

Seems like the cat kinda went crazy and kept attacking the girl. She’s good at dodging though. Glad my mom’s cats don’t do that. Hope she got paid extra for all that trouble…

Next, police wtf:

Here

In one of the most disturbing police-related stories I’ve read about in a long time, a member of SWAT team gunned down a seven year-old girl named Aiyana Jones as she slept on a couch. The police were conducting a raid on the Detroit apartment she lived in to serve an arrest warrant for a murder suspect.

If you try to click the link and it doesn’t work, try again after noon. I read this article before it got posted. Full disclosure: I know the author, ’tis why I chose his post to go up instead of his source materials. I’m biased, but at least I’m up-front about it. But to kill an innocent little girl so callously? And the police officer gets paid leave? WTF? People wonder why I’m skeptical of government sometimes, and the police are def a big part of it. I mean, they weren’t even at the right house! If the police can’t even be considered competent enough to figure out which side of a duplex to violently raid, when it’s obvious a child lives somewhere in the duplex…. and you want them running around with guns? And people say I’M the crazy one?

Anyways, that’s if for WTF Wednesday. Now my semester in school is over, my life is less hectic, and hopefully I can get back to this. Join us on Friday, for what will likely be an insanely long FTW Fridays (My ftw’s are so plentiful these days..)….I bid you all a fantastic morning/wonderful night, depending on how crazy your sleep schedules are. Night!

WTF WEDNESDAY

WTF Wednesday, I’ve-been-having-a-hard-time-with-life-so-give-me-a-break edition!

First, police brutality WTF:

WARNING: DISTURBING VIDEO!

So, I can’t speak for the actions of the first guy. All I can say is that at the point the video cuts in, he’s clearly already handcuffed, and being kicking and having the shit kicked out of him. But the second guy? He had voluntarily gone to the ground, when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, a cop fucking tackles him, and another cop starts kicking him…. seriously, WTF? WTF is wrong with these people? Assaulting someone is assaulting someone, whether the person doing the assaulting has a shiny badge or not.

Next, why-would-you-do-that WTF:

Link

Bobby and Henock were brought to this pastor by their stepmother, who said she believes her stepsons are witches and claimed the boys were stealing their stepsister’s blood and using it to fly at night. Pointing to Henock, whose left arm is covered in bandages, she said that, in the “spirit world,” he is an elderly man who injured himself while trying to kill his father. The boys’ father was not present; he was out of town on work and apparently unaware of the ceremony.

In a small, squeaky voice, Bobby said that family members had told him he and his brother were infected with witchcraft after eating bread and green beans their older brother gave them.

Tshombe’s denunciation appeared to have traumatized the boys, who were barely responsive.

Accusing children of witchcraft and performing brutal “exorcisms” while charging an arm and leg for it? Really, that’s a new low…

Next, army wtf:

Link

Apparently, the army thinks wikileaks is a national security risk. Heh.

Lt. Col. Lee Packnett, an Army spokesman, confirmed that the report was real. Julian Assange, the editor of WikiLeaks, said the concerns the report raised were hypothetical.

“It did not point to anything that has actually happened as a result of the release,” Mr. Assange said. “It contains the analyst’s best guesses as to how the information could be used to harm the Army but no concrete examples of any real harm being done.”

Because the terrorists obsessively check wikileaks? Also, I was given the impression that the information was old, even if a bit of it was classified…

Next, Palin WTF (I know it’s usually too easy, but it caused be to get into a long protracted debate about anarchy :- ) ):

Link

WTF number 1: The article is just like, “Eh, no biggie. Doesn’t matter that someone who was actively trying to be vice president a little bit ago, is drawing crosshairs on a map.

WTF number 2: SHE PUT CROSSHAIRS ON A MAP!!  HOW IS THIS OKAY? I don’t care that she’s a republican, I just don’t think it’s cool that she did this, even though, in case you don’t know, there’s been a rash of bricks thrown with threatening messages through windows at various different democratic headquarters, and someone posted a representative’s address online, and later thgat night, someone cut the gas line to that house (and it turned out the representative didn’t even leave there…) and just threatening messages in general.  She HAS to know she’s just adding fuel to the fire. Ugh!

Say what you want about the health care bill. For it, against it, whatever you want, but but as soon as you start being violent, or threatening violence, I have an issue…

That’s it for this week’s post. I’ve got about 3 posts I want to power through, so I’m keeping this one short. Night!

FTW Friday!

FTW Friday YAY-I-GOT-MY-INTERNET-BACK edition!

So, now that I have internet back, I can make regular posts, without having to sit in the exact right position to see what unsecured networks :-p

First:

Awesome science FTW

Catchy. Usually I hate autotune, but I feel like this is an acceptable use. 🙂 Plus, it has Bill Nye the science guy in it! I loved Bill Bye as a kid! Like, if I knew Bill Nye was on TV, I’d change the channel, no matter how much my sisters protested. And it was always a good science class when our teacher turned on a Bill Nye episode. Plus, the whole meaning of the song is pretty sweet. I suggest you check all of the Symphony of Science things out. Here’s a link to the youtube channel where you can find all of them. I heartily enjoy all of them. And check out the Billy Mays tribute while you’re there. So many cool videos, I could probably make a post just out of that youtube channel, but I’ll refrain from doing so….

Next:

I like complaining FTW!

It involves subtitles, so if you don’t like that, you won’t like it. But I thought it was really cute and clever and funny. I have learned to not watch it when easily saddened, because there’s a line that makes me sad. The one where, “My flat is small, but it eats all my money so I have nothing left with which to save the world” or something along those lines. It kinda hits close to home with me, because if I didn’t have all my moneez (and I mean, ALL) go to bills and feeding myself, I would donate money to the people who play those sad animal commercials, but I can’t, so I just cry (yes, they make me actually cry) when I go to my mom’s place and actually have cable (cable is a bill that, alas, I cannot afford under my current monetary constraints, and neither can me roomies). But, besides that, this video is totally awesome, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! ‘Cause so much of it is true, or funny, or both!

Next:

Political FTW!

This video is pretty legit cool. Except for I advocate for the complete abolition of copyrights, but that’s a completely different post. So for now, I’ll just say that this is pretty awesome. Look forward to a rambling post about copyright in the (probably!) near future!

Next!

Thought-provoking FTW

Dr.  Q sent me this link, and…I dunno. It made me think. I haven’t really come to any conclusions. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, if you want. It’ll be cool. Maybe we can have a fun conversation in the comments or something 🙂

Next!

All-over-awesome-unexpected FTW!

My good bestest girlie friend (Thank you, S-puu!) sent me this link a while back, and I forgot it existed. But I remembered it after her boyfriend dude, Bearface of the Bear-face clan, sent me the complaining video up there **points up** So I asked her to re-link me. It just puts a huge smile on my face when I watched it. So, I figured I’d pass it on to you!

Next!

Somewhat-geeky-FTW!

Bearface and S-puu linked me this a week or two ago, but it was nighttime, and my boyfriend was sleeping, and my internet was being stupid, and so I decided to watch it today, now that I have **lights shine from above** working internet! And it made me giggle. ‘Cause I used to play World of Warcrack…erm, I mean Warcraft. So..I dunno. It just makes me giggle. ^_^ I thought it was win!

Next! (and for now, lastly!)

Somewhat disturbing FTW!

You had a pikachu…kill a squirtle….collecting leaves…for **GAME*????? **blink blink** I want those hoodies tho. I might make them, if I have the energy and enough money at some point to buy the supplies. But (that game) is wicked fun to play. Boyfriend has it on his W, from virtual console. We play it sometimes. It’s fun. But yeah, that video makes me giggle.

Thus concludes another FTW Friday. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get out more non-fluff posts soon, so that there’ll be original Momo content, instead of just link regurgitation.

See ya soon!
