Yes, I am wasting my time here. But TWís death has left me needing a daily fix of Stupid. The comment sections of the national newspapers are exceptionally rich in this regard. I have the need for TW, but Iím no longer bound to Bowie.
Iíve found a neat message board that satirizes stories in the Daily Mail, for instance. For some reason itís in googleís top hits for the Mailís site, which is how I came across it. Essentially, it consists of people poking fun at stories/comments in the Mail. Itís a message board poking fun at a message board. So I get my fix of Stupid vicariously, in safe, hermetic quote boxes. Why do these people feel compelled to comment on other boards, with people and views theyíd rather not encounter? Ostensibly, they scream LOSER but Iím not sure they are losers in the worst sense. Theyíre sort of like Pablo without the crap jokes and pedo facial hair. They are, in other words, losers in their late 30s/early 40s, and they definitely wear cardigans, but theyíre good company.
Mormons are the worst because, much like telemarketers, they're not allowed to fuck off until you tell them to. -- Wraith2
