I think I'm officially old now.

And about time, really; I've been practicing to be old since I was little.
Anyway, clubbing plans fell through due to failure to communicate and especially my failure to ask about plans early enough (like, a couple of days might have been better), which was okay; these things happen. digex did come through, names were added to appropriate list, but by then I was late and it was tired out. More so for bro and fiance, who may actually have had farther to drive. [Edited to more accurately reflect reality and remove an inadvertent slam on digex.]

What was not okay was that the Internets seemed to be full of flapping and fail; even big time sites like Instapundit had to be F5'd repeatedly, and some sites just refused to load.
GET OFF MY INTERNETS, YOU ROTTEN LITTLE KIDS!

Anyway, before I toddle off to read Amity Shlaes' horror novel about FDR, King of the Undead and his prosperity-devouring zombie hordes, have some amusing links:

Australian preacher gets all dhimmified about topless beaches. (Pic related but NSFW.)
(Via GVDL, who is outraged at the continued perversity that follows previous indecorous Christmas posts. Yes, of course they're NSFW.)

Katherine Mangu-Ward offers relationship advice to the troubled. (Virginia Postrel)

The Best Ad Campaign in Human History. Brought to you by the Danish financial services/appliance industry.
(I dunno which, no comprendo Danish).
Unlike the previous link, NSFW. Post contains bonus trashing of Jessica Valenti, if you fancy that sort of thing. (Ace)

Paul Beston catches on to the Chairman of the Board after a life spent marinating in rock. Good stuff.

Rachael Ray is trying to kill your dog! Protip: People stupid enough to feed people food to their dog without knowing if it's going to hurt the dog shouldn't have dogs. Or computers. Kill yourselves, tia. (Instapundit)

Oh, that article from Reason just warmed my heart. Sad thing is, the rest of the LGBT community is going to continue ignoring truth. I'm glad the Libertarian party is starting to see the light, but I think we would have been better off not associating with riffraff to begin with. Also, I can't remember your political affiliation, so no offense was intended if you are the aforementioned riffraff.

I'm a Falangist, so no. :)

These Falangist, right? Or is it this one? Judging by the flag design, I would venture to guess the former.

Neither, really. I think American Falangism has to be organic, not derived from the Spanish or Lebanese models, and therefore can't be solely the province of disaffected Catholics. I have an incomplete essay on it at my other website, but unfinished essay is unfinished.

for the record
i want it known that I did come through with free admission to
Wu Years Eve a few hours before midnight for KTT and his Posse
but they were not able to get up there on the shorter than desirable
notice - which I certainly respect. Again for the record, Wu Tang Clan
really tore the roof off of the place (Sonar in Baltimore)

Re: for the record
Yeah, original isn't fair to you - if anything, the onus is on me for not asking sooner. This is why writing things immediately is not always a good thing. Fixed.
