My Idiot People


Why are we so stupid?

Peter Pan Lives

An entire generation that does not want to grow up.


Why Does the Obama Administration Hate Women?

The real war on women starts in utero. 

Why does Obama hate girls?
"The administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday.


"Meaningful Work"

I adore Thomas Sowell.

I just finished reading The Thomas Sowell Reader and it was outstanding. I highly, highly recommend it.

He is at his best when explaining economic concepts and the difference between the elites/anointed ones and the regular folks.

This short but sweet column is no exception.

"In the real world, many things are done simply because they have to be done, not because doing them brings immediate pleasure to those who do them."

And this point reminds me precisely of the Quebec student riots. At all these riots, one hears about 38 year old "students" taking a degree in patchouli studies.

"Telling young people that some jobs are “menial” is a huge disservice to them and to the whole society."

"Subsidizing them in idleness while they wait for “meaningful work” is just asking for trouble, both for them and for all those around them."

That is a great phrase with devastating societal consequences.

We are subsidizing an entire generation of idleness.


Nanny Bastards!

This is not a joke!

Donuts >>>gooooood.

Coke >>bad/Satan

Did you know that NY had a Department of Health and MENTAL HYGIENE?

Ummm. What’s “mental hygiene”.

Pure thoughts? Re-education? 

This is insane!

Educators-Your Moral Superiors

"But grads and parents, be forewarned that the social sciences and humanities departments at universities now largely amount to indoctrination camps, according to a new report addressed to the Board of Regents that oversees the UC system."

"Drafted by the conservative National Association of Scholars, the report spells out how universities in general, and the University of California system's 10 campuses in particular, are filled with radically politicized, socialist-leaning professors who teach students "what to think rather than how to think."


Most professors would be more inclined to hire a communist than a Republican.

Food for Thought

From France!

Wisdom! From France?

I am saluting a French writer?!?! 

This is a nice piece about love.

"Love, says France's greatest living philosopher, "is not a contract between two narcissists. It's more than that. It's a construction that compels the participants to go beyond narcissism. In order that love lasts one has to reinvent oneself."

"Everybody says love is about finding the person who is right for me and then everything will be fine. But it's not like that. It involves work. An old man tells you this!"

Nicely put. This too:

"Everybody wants a contract that guarantees them against risk. Love isn't like that. You can't buy a lover. Sex, yes, but not a lover."

And this phrase: "parliamentary cretins".

Ha. Wish I had thought of that. It's a keeper!

A Woman Just Like You!

Dude with man plumbing wants to pee in ladies room.

What could possibly be wrong with that?



"It's My Funny Name" Alert!

With, extra, sooooper delicious, bonus "but, some of my best friends are Jews" line!

Remember: if "Muslim" name is mentioned by friends-it's cool and diverse and a way to connect with the Muslim world.

If "Muslim" name is mentioned by ideological foes, it's because they are prejudiced and haters and such.

Got it? 


Too Good to Check!

Elizabeth Warren-first white, blue-eyed "Cherokee", "Native American" professor of law at Harvard.

Or as Mark Steyn put it "professor of lore".


Now, new revelations!

She is also the first white, blue-eyed "Cherokee", Native American professor who lactated while taking a bar exam!


A historical FIRST again!

Amazing! Soooooooo special!

Another historical FIRST for this pasty, lilly-white "Cherokee" professor that can't be historically ascertained due to a lack of actual evidence!

Don't take it from me. Take it from the New Jersey Judiciary-who notes that women's lactation status was not among the personal information solicited from bar exam participants.

"Winnie Comfort of the New Jersey Judiciary, which administers that state’s bar exam, said there’s no way to verify Warren’s claim. Comfort said women have been taking the New Jersey bar exam since 1895, but she’s not aware their nursing habits were ever tracked."

I'm actually shocked that that question is not on the diversity surveys.

They ask nowadays about your sexual preference, and fetishes (kidding, but that will come..), how you take your afternoon tea (were that only so), but not if you are lactating. Perhaps someone will tip them off? This could be an entirely new area of development for the equity bureaucracy?!?!



I found the video here.

Her lactation claims are at 2:13 if you are interested in watching.

Brothers Get A Second Chance

A tale of heroism. 

“Medals don’t mean much to me, I was just doing my job,” he told me.

“What means more to me is that I’m still alive. I have a second chance to do what I want.”

Not Worth the Debt-Glenn Reynolds

Very good piece here about the education bubble in the US. 

"For students, piece of advice No. 1 is: Don’t go into debt"

Wow. Now there's a concept. 


"Debt is what gets people into trouble in bubbles: They borrow heavily because they think the value of what they’re buying, whether it’s a house or a tulip, will go up. When it stops going up, they’re sunk.
Today, the value of an education isn’t going up, but the price is. That’s a bad combination. So don’t borrow heavily."

Smart dude.

For more, read Instapundit. Great, great stuff always.


Oy to the Vey

ABC news recycling Obama's my-uncle-liberated-Auchwitz myth.

"Linkedin's biography of Mr. Negrin says he was a journalism major and "survived eight internships" at various major news organizations, including one at the New York Times."


"I want my old face back."

"Why can't I look like you?"

Oh Mah Gawd!

This is one of those posts that summarizes in a few short paragraphs why the United Kingdom is screwed.


A woman in the UK has been jailed. Yes-jailed! Incarcerated for Ranting While Racist! This is totally unbelievable.

Judge Michael Snow sentenced Woodhouse to 21 weeks in jail on Tuesday in London, saying that anyone hearing her "grossly offensive" language would feel a "deep sense of shame."

"Woodhouse - who had turned herself in to police after the footage began to circulate - had pleaded guilty to one count of causing racially aggravated harassment, alarm or distress by using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior.”

This is a really frightening development. 

How long before we see it here in Ontario/Canada/America?

This is especially worrying given that Bernie Farber is going to be our new Human Rights Overlord. 

I am sure there are plenty of people who would like to jail people because of their unpopular opinions and for insulting people with "grossly offensive" language that made people feel a "deep sense of shame". 

This is NUTS. Totally nuts. 

Someone in the "civilized" world has been incarcerated for hurt feelings.

What are we going to do about it?

Number of the Week

I just saw this article.

Utterly horrifying.

Half of American households are receiving some kind of government benefit.

How can America possibly recover without dealing with this?

I was feeling optimistic this morning. GAH!

Civilization Ends

Twenty four abortions on three girls courtesy of the British taxpayer. 

The horror.

Dan Quayle-Vindicated

How did this get past the editors at the WaPo?

"Unless the media, parents and other influential leaders celebrate marriage as the best environment for raising children, the new trend — bringing up baby alone — may be irreversible."  

The End of the Jewish Left?

Another piece from Tablet-this one about the Jewish-leftist alliance.

Some interesting thoughts, and worth a read.

The Treblinka Gold Rush

A harrowing tale from Poland. 

It was written by Jan T. Gross, who also wrote "Neighbors" about Jedwabne (where my grandfather was born).


Fresh, juicy jizyah from Down Under!

Bully Bloggers: Bernie Farber Edition

So, Bernie Farber, former CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress thinks that bloggers who don't like him and/or disagree with them are bullies. 

Bernie is expected to be the new head of the Ontario Human Rights Commission when Barbara Hall vacates the seat. Oh joy!

Bernie says:

"I never really liked the word "tolerance." It suggests the bare minimum. Simply tolerating each other is far from accepting or, better yet, celebrating each other. In the end "tolerance" is not much of a value statement."

Tolerance is what people like us bully bloggers are expected to do toward views that we find repulsive and anathema but politically correct pablum for the masses. For people like Bernie, it's not enough that we tolerate-nothing short of being a cheerleader is sufficient. 

There is more tripe about "hateful words" (folks like this feel that hateful words caused the Holocaust), and quotes from some anonymous places. But this line:

"Y is too stupid to really be Jewish"

It's actually Kathy Shaidle's line: Bernie Farber-Too Stupid to Be Jewish?  I guess it really bugs him-good job, Kathy.

This is also funny:

"And let's not forget the comment sections of some online newspapers which have become feeding grounds for racists, bigots, homophobes and those who slander without compunction"

Actually, the comment section is where people get to express REALITY without being afraid of speaking their minds. It's where normal people explain what is actually going on, after the media has usually done a hatchet job on the real story. 

Anyway-Kathy's and Arnie's responses are more comprehensive. And Ezra Levant has talked about the real bullies. This post (and Kathy's right, Bernie-it's a "post" not a "blog") is just a dissembling distraction from the real bully/bullies.

Definitely time to revisit the Steyn masterpiece on Bernie M. Farber. 

And who can forget the oven door, brought home from the ancestral Polish homeland? 

The oven door from Poland, framed and sitting in his living room....

OH LOOK, Bernie spoke at an ISNA conference! Nice!

He is an expert on white supremacists? Isn't Bernie white? Yes, I think so.

Bernie is a White Liberal Supremacist.

No wonder people like this feel they need state protection and censorship to fight their battles-they are incapable of fighting anything on their own.

Make Your Own Damned Lunches

This kid's mother is a doctor-is she not capable of making her own daughter's freaking lunch? 

This is NOT a victory over junk food story.

This illustrates that parents will not even make their own lunches for their own offspring.

Maybe instead of setting up a blog, the father could have made a sandwich for his kid instead?

Totally pathetic.

Print More Money!

Do  not panic!

Nothing to worry about.

You Silly Haters Are Being Just Ridulous About Elizabeth Warren

Witch hunt?

Scalp hunt, Kimosabe!

You foolish right wingers!


Thanks Choom gang for all the highs! I mean highlights.

America: Her Finest Hour Yet to Come

I know I should be optimistic about America's future for the reasons listed here. 

However, it's hard to be optimistic given the current mess that Obama has made.

Shoot Da Messenger!

Pass the samosas!

Clearly, the way to fight antisemitism is to suck up to antisemites.

Massacre in Syria

World yawns, zzzzzzzzzzzz.

If the Syrians really wanted some world attention, all they need to do is build some apartments in Jerusalem, or in the "West Bank".

Because that's really what is preventing world peace.

Jew Holiday!

Doing the Jew thing.

It's Shavuot! 

Will be very busy with family, eating cheese, cheesecake, at neighbourhood ice-cream parties (how awesome is that??) and offline during the holiday.

I actually really like Shavuot, not just because of the food but because it's when the Book of Ruth is read, and I love that 'your people are my people' thing, and also think it's the holiday that brings Jews and Christians together in a way. I like that a convert to Judaism was the spark in the lineage that led to King David.

Read more about the Book of Ruth here. 

Back early next week.

What Would We Do Without Research?



Perhaps Obama is just not that bright? 

"Could it be that Mr. Obama's "superior intellect" is a myth created by journalists to mask what may be the thinnest resume of anyone ever elected president? An example of puffery is the description of Mr. Obama as a former "professor of constitutional law."

"Mr. Obama was a part time instructor at the University of Chicago law school, without the title or status of professor. And, according to blogger Doug Ross, he wasn't very popular with the real professors.

Get Off The Couch!

Get moving, get off the couch!

Body and mind are connected. If you abuse your body, your mind cannot function properly.

Going Out For Japanese Food?

Make sure you ask about those funny named rolls, OK?

Hint: Crazy Japanese Eunuch Testicle Rolls are actually, well, just that.

Europeans And South Africans Hate Jews More Than Palestinians?

Wow. Just wow.

Read this article.

It's kind of astounding if you think about it that Europeans hate Israel/Jews so much that they would ban Israeli products and produce, but in Bethlehem Israeli products are flying off the shelves. 

Actually amazing.

Vocational Advice to the Entitlement Generation

Get thee to tattoo-removing school, and quickly, too.

"I have heard from most all of my clients that they’re being discriminated against in the workplace and they can’t find work. Even when it’s a beautiful tattoo, a lot of employers don’t like it.."



Family Dearest

"Arzu came from a family that seemed to be the model of successful integration."

 A horrifying tale of "honour" murder in Germany.

I urge you to read the whole article, to get a look into the mindset of tribal barbarians, and how that culture has infiltrated the western world.

The western world is clearly not capable, or not willing to deal with this reality.

"At about 1:15 a.m. on Nov. 1, 2011, Sirin and four of her brothers abducted their sister Arzu, 18, from the apartment of her German boyfriend Alexander, 23. The couple's love affair had repeatedly been the cause of strife in the Özmen family. They are Yazidis, a Kurdish religious group who have emigrated to Germany in large numbers in recent decades. Yazidi religion forbids relationship with non-Yazidis."

"Eleven weeks later, a greenskeeper found Arzu's body next to a golf course in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein. The fate of the girl, who had managed to flee to a women's shelter and was given a new identity, only to be killed in the end by her own family.."

Arzu came from a family that seemed to be the model of successful integration.

"The police files reveal how the family reacted to these transgressions. Arzu was beaten with a wooden club. When she went to the hospital, she told the staff there that she had fallen from her bicycle. When she returned home, the family took away her identification documents and locked her up. She managed to escape through an open cellar door on Sept. 1, and she filed charges against her father Fendi and her brother Osman on the same day. Now, in addition to violating religious rules, Arzu had also publicly exposed the family patriarch. "That alone was almost her death sentence," Judge Reineke said in the trial."

Arzu came from a family that seemed to be the model of successful integration.


Everybody's Doing It!

Peer pressure!

Ha! Just kidding.

Apparently, today is "Everybody Blog About the Latest Case of Crazy Dangerous Intimidation and Threats From a Leftist Blogger" day or something like that.

More from Michelle Malkin and Hot Air.

This is not just about physical threats and danger-which are very real.

This is also about the idea that the left should be able to control political discourse and that the left can establish a de facto state of censorship in democracies. I refuse to accept that.

When the political left decides that something is taboo, that's exactly when we should start talking more about it. The left has made great strides in the democratic world, pushing it's "progressive" agenda gradually, almost imperceptibly onto the larger population.

Concepts that were anathema to civilized society have made their way into everyday life and one is expected not to express any dissent for fear of being branded racist, or homophobic or "Islamophobic". If people disagree with the left, they are "intolerant" or "simple minded". The dissenters are merely "simplistic" people whose ignorance is clear as day.

Polite and civilized dissenting citizens have found that it is not enough to politely disagree and quietly acquiesce and tolerate what they once found intolerable. 

Nothing but being a complete cheerleader for their pet causes acceptable to the left.

I'm reminded of attending a talk by Ezra Levant, who was confronted by a nutty, liberal, pro-censorship, Jew. The Jewish liberal became exasperated and sweaty asking Ezra a question.  lecturing Ezra on how wrong he was about internet censorship and "hate" on the internet.

Ezra stayed cool and let the dude blow off some unhinged steam.

The Jewish liberal became even more agitated and then in a tour de force exclaimed that Ezra clearly needed therapy!

Ezra needed therapy because he didn't agree with an unhinged liberal!

Being bullied into submission doesn't work, so let's shrinky-dink and re-educate these dumb conservatives into submission. They don't agree with us! They are mentally ill!

(Actually, I would guess that more liberals are 'in therapy' than conservatives-just a hunch, but then again, I'm not very bright...)

Well, guess what. 

There aren't enough therapists in the world to intimidate all of us into ideological submission.

Mark Steyn says "they'll have to kill us all". 

(Moderately arousing!)

The current unholy alliance between the left, greens and Islamic fascists constitutes a clear and current willingness and ability to extinguish lives, and an equally real threat of extinguishing our personal freedoms and liberty.

No freedom-loving individual wants to be the instrument of their own demise, but no freedom-loving individual should tolerate the encroachment (ideological or physical) of sinister, totalitarian-inclined and violent forces into the private spheres of their life: family, children and thoughts.



No joy? No joy gene? 

Too funny.

"Germans can't even let go during sex. Many reported constantly having film and advertising images run through their minds. "This results in the requirement to cut a good figure even during sex," Imdahl says. That is, to hold in their bellies instead of enjoying the moment."

"Maybe Liberals Should Listen to Rush Limbaugh"


"It’s comfortable living in a cocoon — associating only with those who share your views, reading journalism and watching news that only reinforces them, avoiding those on the other side of the cultural divide."

"Liberals have been doing this for a long time. In 1972, the movie critic Pauline Kael said it was odd that Richard Nixon was winning the election, because everyone she knew was for George McGovern."

"Kael wasn’t clueless about the rest of America. She was just observing that her own social circle was politically parochial."

The Church of the Holy Contraception

Otherwise know as Our Lady of Fallopian Church?

I joke, I joke.

This is a serious issue and this is a good column by David Harsanyi.

Been thinking a lot actually about the 43 Catholic organizations and institutions that are preparing a lawsuit against the Obama administration. I know a lot of people are cheering it on, and I think that it's better to do something than nothing.

But I can't help thinking that some of this reaction seems like morning after the great night before regret. That is to say, that a lot of Catholic Americans cast their votes for Obama for a myriad of reasons. It's hard to be sympathetic to the charge being led by the University of Notre Dame, when they so blindly cheered on Obama not that long ago, and featured him as a commencement speaker. 

I guess they were so romanced and so dazzled by his charm that they decided to overlook his clear anti-life position.

This is not an event that can be erased from the historical record.

Unfortunately, it seems to me to be another example of bad judgement on the part of the Church.

Why defer to charming evil?

Obama's positions on abortion were simply radical and evil. Why honour that? Why elevate that?

The only thing that religious institutions can do now is play catch-up and try to stuff this anti-life, "progressive", genie back into the bottle.

It's a bit late to be organizing coalitions.

Claiming 'we didn't know' has never been a very good explanation for turning a blind eye to evil.

Sidewalk Fundraising in Downtown Toronto

For the sixth of seventh time this week, I was asked "just for a minute" to discuss making a donation to a non-profit organization on the streets of downtown Toronto.

Street fundraisers are the new squeegie kids.

Is anyone else bothered by this? 

I am sick and tired of being accosted by aggressive fundraisers all over this city. I am not interested in being constantly harassed by well-intentioned but intrusive fundraising staff no matter what their noble cause is. I have worked in fundraising and it is a thankless job. And I donate to different non-profit organizations.

I worked in offices, or in direct mail-and was not directly and physically in people's faces.

However, I think that there is a bit of a scam in play here and I guess there is a lot of money at stake.

How come fundraisers for various organizations get to use public space (sidewalks) as their private fundraising offices?

Do fundraisers have to have a permit for soliciting funds on the streets of the city?

Maybe they should.

Why should any organization be able to make money on public property without some kind of permit or tax levied?

Toronto is a highly regulated city. People can't even operate food carts without being numbed into submission by the astounding and crippling regulations of the public health department. One can only buy hot dogs on city streets-everything else is too dangerous!

I'm thinking that maybe a percentage of the funds raised on the streets by professional fundraisers should go back to the city?

I'd love to run this by Rob Ford. 

The UK Is Screwed

Full, and I mean chock full of crazy people.

Stop the World-I want to Jump Off

The UK is a terrible place with a corrupt and decadent legal system.

The victim-perpetrator inversion is a dangerous, dangerous force. 


I thought the Chinese ground up baby bill story was the worst.

But clearly-there is no "worst".

When I read this story, I literally started to shake.

Dateline: India

Baby girls being fed to dogs. 

Lord help us.

Evil Abuse of Children

I pray we see the day when parents are criminally charged with abuse, and the doctors who participate in these Mengele-esque experiments on children are stripped of their licenses as well. 

Pity the children.

Why is it that without exception, the parents of these children seem to be completely mentally unstable and ill themselves? And usually they have (ahem) "complicated" sexual interests and forms of expression. They all have a touch of narcisism as well and are happy to take their stories to the international media.

If it's so troubling, why not deal with it in a dignified and private way. Why do so public?

A lot of the women tend to be single parents. Hmmm. What's up with that? Where are the fathers?

When there is a father in the picture, and that's rare-he seems to usually be a soft-spoken lisping vegan who goes to knitting circles.

Terrible, terrible stuff.


At my house there are always two choices for dinner:


Or not.

This kind of insanity just encourages bratty behaviour. 


Just Don't Talk About It

Influx of certain immigrant group to the UK improves UK schools somewhat. 


Just don't talk about what draaaags it down.

Eurabia is Screwed

If people don't like Israeli produce, they don't have to buy it.

Israeli fruits, vegetables, spices, olive oil and dairy products are vastly superior to anything we can find in North America. Some European stuff is good-but northern Europe doesn't produce citrus, and other crops that are native to Israel.

But the obsession with labeling food from the OCCUPAYSHUN HUMILIYAAAYSHUN "territories" is pretty mental. 

I guess Europeans really, really dig identifying Jews and Jew stuff with stickers and badges. Plus ca change.

Random Public Education is Screwed Sampler

Exhibit 1. 

"Mr. Lirtzman handed over 20 student programs, all of which showed that administrators placed students in classrooms with uncertified teachers. The investigator informed Mr. Lirtzman that these were confidential documents. 

"Now I am opening an investigation of you, she told him. It would be enough to bring a smile to the lips of Kafka"

“These are the most vulnerable kids, the ones no one really looks out for,” Mr. Lirtzman said. “This wasn’t a gray legal area. This was black and white, and the Department of Education decided that I was the problem.”

Exhibit 2. 

"The graduates of our social sciences and humanities programs are increasingly found wanting in the workplace. Unless they can find employment in a leftist dominated milieu (e.g., government, academia, public sector union, media conglomerate), the American business world finds them ill-equipped to function successfully in what remains of the US entrepreneurial society.

The costs of a university indoctrination--er, that is, education--have skyrocketed. In light of the previous bullet, consumers-- i.e., the students' parents--find it increasingly hard to justify the expense

Intense criticism of the faculty is on the rise: they can't teach; or what they teach is garbage or propaganda; they're too busy with their "research"; and they are overpaid.Administrative policies make no sense--multiculturalism trumps achievement, political correctness outweighs impartiality.Most damaging, our universities, after a prolonged period of indoctrination, return students to their parents in a form that parents cannot recognize--their opinions, values and behavior have been altered beyond repair. (To be fair, it is encouraging that a not insignificant percentage of college grads manage to resist the brainwashing on campus)."

Exhibit 3. 

"It is rare for such students to be genuinely desirous and capable of learning how to improve. Most of them simply hope that I will come around. Their belief that nothing requires improvement except the grade is one of the biggest obstacles that teachers face in the modern university. And that is perhaps the real tragedy of our education system: not only that so many students enter university lacking the basic skills and knowledge to succeed in their courses — terrible in itself — but also that they often arrive essentially unteachable, lacking the personal qualities necessary to respond to criticism."

Exhibit 4.

"We got here in large part because the mainstream media is full of biased hacks and jokers, and our educational establishment cares more about preserving union power and money than about educating our young."

The Eternally Shifting Sands of Obama's Biography

If you haven't already, you need to read Mark Steyn on Obama, the Zelig of the office of the President of the United States of America.

He's Everyman. He's black, white, Kenyan, American, Hawaiian, an academic, a regular Joe-whatever you need him to be-that's who he is.

But the problem with lying as Mark Twain said, is that you always have to remember what you said when, and to whom. Small problem. Not an issue when you tell the truth. The truth, the essence of the man is elusive and layered.

He says:

"In a post-modern America, the things that Gatsby attempted to fake – an elite schooling – Obama actually had; the things that Gatsby attempted to obscure – the impoverished roots – merely add to Obama's luster. Gatsby claimed to have gone to Oxford, but nobody knew him there because he never went; Obama had a million bucks' worth of elite education at Occidental, Columbia and Harvard Law, and still nobody knew him ("Fox News contacted some 400 of his classmates and found no one who remembered him")."

"In that sense, Obama out-Gatsbys Gatsby: His "shiftless and unsuccessful" relatives – the deportation-dodging aunt on public housing in Boston, the DWI undocumented uncle, the $12-a-year brother back in Nairobi – are useful props in his story, the ever more vivid bit-players as the central character swims ever more out of focus, but they don't seem to know him either. The more autobiographies he writes, the less anybody knows."

Totally related:

Here's something that we do know about Obama-that he is not a man of his word.

Read "The Fraudulence of Obama" here-picking up on some of the themes Steyn riffs on:

"Now hypocrisy is not an unknown quality in a politician. But what sets Obama apart from almost everyone else is the lengths Obama goes to in order to portray himself as morally superior to the rest of the political class even as he acts in ways that completely shatter his claims. He reminds me of the minister who cannot help from condemning the very sin to which he is beholden. And so as recently as last month Obama was saying, “A lot of folks see the amounts of money that are being spent and the special interests that dominate and the lobbyists that always have access, and they say to themselves, maybe I don’t count.”

"What’s impossible to know is the degree to which Obama is alarmingly cynical or the degree to which he is alarmingly self-deluded. Whatever the case, he is a man whose words mean nothing. Nothing at all.

A man of mystery, whose words mean nothing. However, the internet never forgets.
