Article For Dune fans

Was never a Dune fan. Probably because I am repulsed by Arabs. It also seemed cribbed from multiple sources. That being said, there were some cool as shit ideas in there: the noble houses, spice, gurney halleck and the mentats...

Interesting, thanks.

The second Dune book was a tragic masterpiece, I thought. Very moving. The others were dry, but interesting. He had a striking way of looking at the way people of power think.

He also wrote a cool book called The White Plague. A bio-scientist whose wife & daughter are murdered in an IRA bombing on a trip to Ireland, designs a virus that attaches to the second X chromosome and kills only females. So that every man in the world has to suffer what he suffered.
“War is the remedy our enemies have chosen. Other simple remedies were within their choice. You know it and they know it, but they wanted war, and I say let us give them all they want.”
― William Tecumseh Sherman

IN CASE NO ONE KNOWS BENJI AND SARCOMA ARE CARRYING ON AN ON-LINE LOVE AFFAIR. THEY ARE BOTH TOTALLY DEVIANT TAINT LICKERS, NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH LICKING THE TAINT OF THE OPPOSITE GENDER THAT IS. BUT THIS IS IGX AND HATIN' IS WHERE IT'S AT. ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF SCARCOMA IS ACTUALLY LICENSED TO PRACTICE WHATEVER BULLSHIT SPECIALTY HE CLAIMS. SMELLS FISHY, LIKE YOUR MOM'S PANTIES.

^^^I like this a lot. A great example of the hate/snark mashup. And what really sells it is there's an actual element of truth to it. An anesthesiologist? WTF? And you have to go to school for that? Surely that's not a "real" MD's profession. Prolly some on-line shit from Univ. of Phoenix or DeVry. But Sacroiliac is in Kangaroo Land, right? Their standards for this bullshit must be different.

didn't he get his training in russia? probably learned by stucking big needles with horrible drugs into dissidents. "oops, we're not going to be able to wake that guy up."

but he's come up in the world. he's diddling the unconscious sheilas.

and you're envious.

In Russia you don't have to go to school to become a doctor, bitches. Medical diploma costs six bottles of vodka paid directly to the Secretary General (blessed be His name!). Then a short course - they show you which tablet to give and send you overseas on a mission of fingering your sisters.

And no, it's not "oops, we're not going to be able to wake that guy up." It's "Look, another one woke up this month!"

You jealous bitches are bitter that I can wear Speedos every day.

This is creepier than watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel.

Shafman, change Sangoma's account privileges so he can never post pics.

TURD NO! We want to see this. We need to see the ripped sexy leanness of Scaramanga. When you only have one cube of cheese and a shot glass full of wallaby semen every other day the positive effects on body composition are beyond belief.

He puts them to sleep by reading his IGx posts aloud; it's much crueler than drugs.

Fairly impressive, though looks like something you'd dissect in 6th grade science class.
