What People Are Saying About Cynical-C

Peter writes:

This video was a complete waste of my time. I am going to stop visiting your blog unless you post things of interest and of value. Wasting 4 minutes of my time like this is not of value. Wise up and do not post every stupid video you come across.


This blog used to post cleverness, but now too often it merely posts a video and expects us to waste 10 minutes of our time getting to the point. People don’t have that kind of time.

This place is really going downhill.

To the author of this site:

Dude stop trying to disprove there is no god. All you readers have figured that out already. And if they haven’t then they’re plainly retarded. I think you should put in more stuff about philosophy. Philosophy deals with exactly this stuff but without senseless gods. Dont get me wrong! I LOVE THE SITE

Toni writes:

You seem to be an angry yet sad person. I’m sorry you have such an outlook on life. I hope God softens your heart. God Bless you.

Hi Chris,

I’ve visited your site everyday now for a good year or so and I’m afraid I
can’t any longer. Regarding your comment the day your wife got her wisdom
teeth out: I must say – I’m shocked and disappointed. I know you are
entitled to your own religious or non-religious beliefs, but I was taken
aback that you would say something so derogatory about the religious beliefs
of so many others, especially with such a popular website.

Just voicing my disappointment.

Bill writes:

I really enjoyed reading your blog as to me for the most part it seemed to impartial pot shots at both sides of an issue, but lately the voice seems more partisan and angry. I think a real cynic doesn’t appear to take sides.

Tim says:

I’m deleting Cynical-C from my bookmarks after this post. I have been reading this blog since 03. What did mormons ever do to you?

Roger writes:

Cris, please stop posting cats on fridays. Its excrusiatingly boring. If you do anymore cat blogging, I will unsubscirbe to your blog.

Sincerely, a longtime reader.

Randy writes:

Thanks for wasting 7 minutes of my life with that stupid video post. Ricky Gervais sucks.

Inthelight writes:

Your sight sucks and you suck. What gives you the right to talk about our savor the way you do. GO TO HELL!

Dave writes:

After reading your site for over 2 years, I have come to the conclusion that it sucks.

Jan writes:

Jim writes:

Joey B writes:

Tina writes:

I’m sick of you posting bad things about Michael Jackson. I’ve been reading your blog forever and this is the thanks I get?

Shannon writes:

Hey to the author of this blog. Can you not post anymore YouTube links. I can’t see them at work.

Reader says:

What are you, some kind of mental case?

Dominic writes:

No, you lying white devil. Cynicism isnt ‘an
unpleasant way of telling the truth’. Thats antiChrist
white devil bullshit. Optimism is telling the truth.
Everything gets better, nothing ever gets worse. Ever.
You dont even know what the truth is. Jesus Christ IS
the truth. Jesus Christ isnt cynical. The devil sure
is. And so are his people.

Jason writes:

Isn’t this just a little juvenile? Are you really that offended at getting feedback from your readers that you don’t agree with? This website is called Cynical-C, not Juvenile-C.

Dude, you’re not 12 anymore. Learn to take a little constructive criticism. Grow up.

Wil T. Flowers writes:

I just thought that I would let you know (although, you’ve probably heard) that your writing is very amateur. Your editing is poor and you website is very poorly thrown together. I hope you don’t dedicate too much of your time to this site, because I’m afraid you fail at life if you do. Got broken links? Spell check is also associated with most text applications these days…the red underline isn’t a congratulations on using a big word.

God bless you anyway…

A Better Human Being

I wish you were here so I could smack the shit out you, you pussy.

WaPo Experiment Which Disguised a Violin Virtuoso as a Busker

From the Washington Post (with video):

HE EMERGED FROM THE METRO AT THE L’ENFANT PLAZA STATION AND POSITIONED HIMSELF AGAINST A WALL BESIDE A TRASH BASKET. By most measures, he was nondescript: a youngish white man in jeans, a long-sleeved T-shirt and a Washington Nationals baseball cap. From a small case, he removed a violin. Placing the open case at his feet, he shrewdly threw in a few dollars and pocket change as seed money, swiveled it to face pedestrian traffic, and began to play…

…No one knew it, but the fiddler standing against a bare wall outside the Metro in an indoor arcade at the top of the escalators was one of the finest classical musicians in the world, playing some of the most elegant music ever written on one of the most valuable violins ever made. His performance was arranged by The Washington Post as an experiment in context, perception and priorities — as well as an unblinking assessment of public taste: In a banal setting at an inconvenient time, would beauty transcend?

Exploding Easter Bunny

Electrocuting a chocolate easter bunny.

If you are sqeamish, look away now. The Easter bunny meets 50,000 A might be a suitable title. Here the cap bank is charged to 5.8kV (3.5 kJ). A little steel wool on each end to sparkle up the display and away we go.

The flash and bang is huge but most of the energy is directed outwards and the damage is surprisingly small. Interestingly much of the paint is blown off the aluminum foil.
