Weird Fact Of The Day 01/14/2016

Coulrophobia is an abnormal or exaggerated fear of clowns. It is not uncommon among children, but is also sometimes found in teenagers and adults as well. Sufferers sometimes acquire a fear of clowns after having a bad experience with one personally, or seeing a sinister portrayal of one in the media. The weird appearance of the clowns, swollen red noses and unnatural hair colors makes these persons look so mysterious and treacherous. Adults who are victims of coulrophobia know what they fear is completely irrational and illogical, but they can’t escape the circumstance.

That being said, avoid them at all costs because we KNOW all clowns are serial killers or demons just waiting to crawl out from under your bed and murder you with a weed trimmer.


Screw You Oprah Winfrey

Not literally of course.


Anyway my issue today is with that warm, heartfelt Weight Watchers commercial I saw last night.

Now before you get your bingo wings all a-flapping, please understand I have no issue with fat people. With the exception, of course, of fat people that are so angry and upset about how fat they are, that they take that angst out on every person they meet and are just generally a motherfucker to deal with.

Those fuckers piss me off.

Anyway in this commercial she says something I very much disagree with. She states that inside every single fat woman is a thinner person trying to get out.

Now I’m sure in some cases this is true, but we all know that in some cases as well, inside that fat woman is 2 or 3 smaller women that she has captured and eaten. You’ll never hear that little truism on a commercial I don’t think.

So there.

Also as a footnote, if you are offended right now, then you are one of those aforementioned angsty people that needs to lighten up, and love yourself for all the good things about you. Your body is just a shell.

And stop being a dick to people.

Yes Oprah I’m talking to you too.

Kim Kardashian – Queen Of Weight Loss Dumbassery

A great article shown in its entirety.

I never get tired of this twunt making herself look retarded.



If you have an Internet connection and poor impulse control, you know why Kim Kardashian is famous. One hint: it’s not for her knowledge of pharmacology. This is why I was surprised to see her on 20/20 talking about QuickTrim diet pills, which she and her sisters endorse. “We helped formulate this,” she said.

Really? And that’s a selling point?

If you want to know how to achieve “celebrity” by leaking a sex tape, Kim is the one to look to. When it comes to the intricacies of sustainable weight loss for the population at large, however, I am suspicious of her qualifications.

Did it the pills work? Not according to those who launched a $5 million lawsuit against the Kardashian clan. But the sisters had those bikini after photos!

Yeah, the ones that were so heavily Photoshopped Kim’s face got vertically stretched out with the rest of her body so she took on a horse-like visage.


And Kim hasn’t just pushed diet pills. She also flogged Skechers Shape-Ups – the shoes that allegedly burn extra calories and tone your butt. That’s the same Skechers, by the way, that agreed to pay $40 million to settle a class action lawsuit for false advertising.

In the interim, add in multiple quack diets and myriad magazine covers promoting the latest violation of the first law of thermodynamics.

And just this morning, a publicist sent me an email with this image attached.


What in the holy mother of crap?

Here is part of the marketing pitch from the publicist: “a workout corset like this will support long-term slimming and help you lose inches through the science of compression.”

The science of compression? That makes about as much sense as “the science of Play-Doh.” Brain … hurts …

Wait, there’s more. Here are additional marketing claims from the email, alleging the results are:

Midsection control (Read: “I can’t breathe!”)

Increased thermal activity (Read: “This thing is hotter than a Kevlar vest.”)

Loss of inches reported (Yeah, as long as you’re still wearing it. The instant it comes off everything flops back into its pre-corset place.)

Mobilizes fat cells(BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!)

Stimulates perspiration (In case you don’t know what “Increased thermal activity” means.)

Oh, and one of the features of this corset is something called “FlexiBoning.” Does this mean there is a new sex tape in Kim’s future?

Add on top of this the likelihood that doing a non-stop Heimlich maneuver on your internal organs probably isn’t good for you.

I have a feeling that the reason aliens have yet to make contact with us is because they see shit like this and determine that there’s just no intelligent life down here.

More American Dumbassery


I’m not sure if I’m man-struating or what, but America, you sure are pissing me off today with your boundless capacity for being back of the short bus shit for brains.

An example.

Who actually puts pen to paper to say something so blindingly retarded?

Talk amongst yourselves.


Another Example Of Canadian Reverse Racism

Attached below is an article I read yesterday that really sent me off the deep end. The fact that this type of blatant discrimination exists in my country is disgusting. And the people on Toronto city council should be ashamed of themselves for being such blatant vote-whores that they can’t bring themselves to fight this kind of injustice.

At this point, I’m pretty much of the opinion that multiculturalism is a retarded idea. Diversity I have no problem with. I think we should all learn to live together. But this bullshit notion that we need to let people isolate themselves into these little detached enclaves because they hate the culture that was already here when they landed, or can’t be bothered to learn the language, is ignorance of the worst kind.

Enjoy. And make sure to send city councillors some brutal hate mail.

Disabled man told subsidized housing is for Muslims only

City subsidizes 10 affordable housing buildings that only take residents from a certain ethnic, religious or cultural group.

By: Staff Reporter,Published on Wed Aug 26 2015

A young wheelchair user has been taken off the waiting list for a publicly subsidized apartment because he is not a member of the Muslim community that established the building — a practice that, while legal, raises concerns that accommodations for cultural and religious groups could be limiting access to affordable housing.

According to a letter that arrived at his mother’s house last week, Austin Lewis, 21, was removed from the waiting list at the Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace building on Finch Ave. W in North York because he is not a member of their faith.

“It was mostly confusing, more than anything else,” he said. “Why would a government segregate its own building?”

The 16-storey building, which provides a range of services to its residents including a prayer room that accommodates 250, was actually approved in the 1990s as part of a provincial program to encourage non-profits and religious groups to build affordable housing, according to its property manager.

Lewis, who has used a wheelchair since a disease attacked his spinal cord when he was 8, says he applied to more than 100 accessible buildings in Toronto, Brampton and Peel Region, and there was no notice that any of them were restricted to a certain community.

“We had no idea. The letter came as a complete shock,” he said.

The city provides a $1.7-million subsidy for 94 rent-geared-to-income units under a five-year agreement, which began Jan. 1, that restricts tenants to “members of the Muslim Jama’at.”

“The City’s mandate policy allows social housing providers to restrict their housing to individuals belonging to an identifiable ethnic or religious group if specific conditions are met,” says a statement provided by city spokesperson John Gosgnach.

There are eight such buildings in Toronto, catering to Muslims, Macedonians, Germans and seniors who are Christian, Chinese, Greek, Hungarian or Lithuanian.

Karin Tahir, Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace’s property manager, said the building does not discriminate on race, colour or ethnicity. “Ahmadiyya is in 200 countries,” he said.

“We’re not bumping anyone off the list,” Tahir added. “The real issue is the 90,000-person waiting list for an affordable unit. Where is the new stock?”

It’s already hard enough to find affordable housing in the GTA, Lewis says, but when you’re in a wheelchair, your options are limitedeven further.

“It does seem incredibly odd. There is housing for people 50 and over, but there is no housing specifically for people in chairs,” he said.

His mother, Laura Whiteway, is incensed that her son could be turned away from a wheelchair-accessible building.

“They’re being given a licence to discriminate. It’s just wrong,” she said.

Lawyer Barry Swadron, who has extensive experience in disability law, says the Ontario Human Rights Code allows for this kind of discrimination.

“Here you have a building for Muslims, and normally that would be discriminatory because other religions could not be accommodated there.

“But the Human Rights Code says if it’s a special-interests organization — religious, philanthropic, educational or social — they can discriminate in that way,” he said. “It’s very unfortunate, but that’s how the law was written.”

While the intention was to create safe spaces for minority communities, this kind of permissible “positive discrimination” inevitably produces collateral damage, Swadron said.

“(Lewis) is an unintended casualty of the system,” Swadron said. “The hope is that he can find other accommodation.”

While he is currently enrolled in an 18-month program to learn independent living skills, Lewis knows he will need a new place to live next year, and despite all his applications, he now wonders how many have him still in the running.

“This one place sent me a letter, but how many other places haven’t?” he said.
