Kill The Car

From OklahomaFullAuto:

KILL THE CAR is on of the favorite events we have here at OFASTS. In this event, there will be a car, loaded with explosives located on the far side of the shooting range. Anyone who wants, can participate, and try and “KILL THE CAR”. Which basically means, try and blow it up first. It’s a real BLAST!!

And some video of them killing the car.

Kurt Vonnegut Quotes

I miss him (And yes, a lot of these aren’t really quotes but excerpts from his novels.):

One of the few good things about modern times: If you die horribly on television, you will not have died in vain. You will have entertained us.
Cold Turkey

If you want to take my guns away from me, and you’re all for murdering fetuses, and love it when homosexuals marry each other, and want to give them kitchen appliances at their showers, and you’re for the poor, you’re a liberal. If you are against those perversions and for the rich, you’re a conservative. What could be simpler?
Cold Turkey

Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation of rewards or punishment after you are dead.

In case you haven’t noticed, we are now almost as feared and hated all over the world as the Nazis were.
I Love You, Madame Librarian

Doesn’t anything socialistic make you want to throw up? Like great public schools, or health insurance for all?

Portraits of Phone Sex Operators

From The Morning News:

So much of commerce now is blind: online shopping, tech-support in Bangalore. We hope there is a person at the other end of the transaction, but it could be a machine; often the machine doesn’t seem very well programmed. The phone-sex industry, though, thrives on being faceless and intensely personal at the same time. Phillip Toledano’s new book Phone Sex (July 2008, Twin Palms) takes us into the boudoirs of nearly 30 phone-sex operators so we see their faces and also hear their stories—each operator gives his or her take on the business.
