Why I’m Scared Of Iran
Posted by The Gimcracker in News, Theory & Philosophy on 10. Jul, 2007 | 9 Comments
A man and woman were just stoned to death in Iran, according to this FoxNews.com article, and it wasn’t carried out by a few outraged villagers wielding pitchforks as I had previously envisioned it. Iran’s government confirmed that they were responsible for stoning the man as punishment for adultery. I’m dumbfounded that something like this [...]
MSNBC News Reporter Flips Out Over Paris Hilton Story
Posted by The Gimcracker in News on 09. Jul, 2007 | 3 Comments
Her name is Mika Brzezinski and I am now a tremendous fan of hers. She even got her own hour-long news show because of her outburst. This is almost enough to make me start watching MSNBC… almost.

I have always been fascinated with counterintuitive puzzles. During my third year in quantitative analysis at IUPUI I was presented with the famous Monty Hall problem. It states: Suppose you’re on a game show, and you’re given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a [...]
Death Penalty = Abortion?
Posted by The Gimcracker in Theory & Philosophy on 02. Jul, 2007 | 11 Comments
I am no politician and I never will be. I have no idea what the political ramifications are of stating that the death penalty equals abortion. I am coming from a Christian conservative background, but being non-political means you can pretty much remove the “conservative” and say I’m simply coming from a Christian background. I [...]
“Jay Leno’s” Jerry McGuire-esque Memo
Posted by The Gimcracker in Television on 28. Jun, 2007 | 1 Comment
I just received a mass email containing a message that reminded me of the way Jerry McGuire wrote that memo, or mission statement, that totally went against the grain and was a huge risk on his part… and got him fired. The email is apparently a message written by Jay Leno himself, although I highly [...]
I Shouldn’t Have Posted The Last Top Fiver
Posted by The Gimcracker in Reference Burst Theory, Top Fivers on 27. Jun, 2007 | 8 Comments
Not five minutes after I published this post in which I go into some detail about amusement park accidents, a girl’s feet were both severed above the ankle by the Superman Tower of Power (formerly known as The Hellivator) at Kentucky Kingdom. These kinds of things do not happen very often. To have something like [...]
Cruise vs. Germany
Posted by The Gimcracker in Movies, News on 26. Jun, 2007 | No Comments
Tom Cruise is making a new movie, and as much as I hate to admit, it sounds awesome. It’s about Col. Claus von Stauffenberg who was involved with a World War II era plot to kill Adolf Hitler and overthrow the Nazi regime. It’s called Valkyrie, it’s directed by Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects and [...]
Top Fiver #3: Things You Didn’t Know About
Paramount’s King’s Island
Posted by The Gimcracker in Top Fivers on 21. Jun, 2007 | 12 Comments
I started seeing commercials for King’s Island about a month ago, just like every May, and I noticed that it is no longer called “Paramount’s King’s Island”. The “Paramount’s” has been removed, which prompted me to check out the website and see what happened. A couple hours of wikipedia research, a sandwich, four Beer 30s, [...]
Orthodox Paradox III: Conclusion? (Our Meeting Was Sabotaged)
Posted by The Gimcracker in Reference Burst Theory on 19. Jun, 2007 | 9 Comments
I had to title this ‘conclusion’ because I previously stated that the ‘conclusion was to follow’, but I tacked on the question mark to confuse you so you don’t know if this is really the last post about the orthodox paradox. See, that’s what you have to do – you have to use your mind. [...]
U Can Has Lookz At Mai LOLCatz?
Posted by The Gimcracker in I Can Has Cheezburger on 18. Jun, 2007 | 7 Comments
I took some pictures of our cat, mainly to test out my camera, but I couldn’t resist turning them into LOLCatz pictures. They may not be as funny as some of the ones on I Can Has Cheezburger but I think they’re amusing.
