The problem with nerds

I don't often get on here and rant about gamers,video games,systems and how much I dislike the wii but sometimes I need to let off some steam. I really,really tend to dislike gamers in general. There are quite a few reasons behind that. It ranges from the rampant fanboyism of people who will never play an XBOX game because an XBOX isn't a Playstation to the continually unsportsmanlike conduct of players online to some people being just plain crybabies and sore losers. Of course my biggest problems with gamers happens to be the blatant,accepted and even encouraged amounts of racism,sexism,homophobia and religious bigotry. I can't count the amount of times I've been online playing a game and someone has said something stupid. On occasion the stupidity reaches epic proportions and people resort to being angry at a video game company for even attempting to do the right thing and donate money to help out earthquake victims. And,yes this has happened before and I even wrote about it a couple of years ago. The sexism is just about as bad as the racism when it comes to gaming online. It's almost to the point that I can't play a game with any female relative in the room because of the ridiculous amount of insults being blasted through the TV screen. Yes,I know that I can mute the voices with a few presses of a button but this doesn't change the fact that way too many gamers seem to have a dislike of anyone that isn't a white male. If you think I'm kidding just look at the ridiculous reactions that people had because of Aisha Tyler actually hosting an event at E3. This led to her writing a response basically telling the idiots to go fuck themselves and this then created another shitstorm of sexist racism from pissed off nerds who were offended that a female would have the gall to tell them anything about a fucking video game. I guess what I'm saying is that some of you gamers need to get over yourselves and realize that it's just a game and games are made for everyone. If not go die in a fire while losing another round of team snipers on Halo:Reach. Click on the video below to see someone else eloquently speak on the issue.

Detroit is getting a new bridge!

It feels good to post something nice about my city and this is one of those good times. Despite our budget woes and other assorted problems we have somehow been able to find a way to reach an agreement with Canada to finally build a second bridge over the Detroit river. Or at least that's the rumor that's going around since everyone has found out about transportation secretary Ray Lahood,Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Governor Rick Snyder scheduling a "signing ceremony" and photo op in Windsor,Ontario and across the river here in Detroit for tomorrow. This is sure to anger people like Matty Moroun who has been vehemently opposed to a second bridge due to the fact that he actually owns the Ambassador Bridge that currently connects the 2 countries. His reasoning is that a new bridge would cut into his money and thus cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a year. This is despite the fact that the governor has made sure to make a deal with the feds and Canada that basically has Michigan paying none of the expense but getting all of the rewards of having a new bridge in one of the busiest trading areas on the planet. As expected the almost entirely GOP Michigan house has taken up his cause and have been trying for years to stop the building of a second bridge. I for one am happy to see the governor actually doing the right thing and getting this thing done because it'll help revitalize a pretty desolate area of the city and bring in a lot of much needed jobs to the city. If they get moving on this thing quickly,I may in fact be one of those jobs. To learn more about the new bridge,click on the photo below. Now if only we can get that light rail thing done on Woodward......


Have you ever watched the show "Game of Thrones"? If so,you're just like me and a couple million other people. One thing I love about the show is that they don't shy away from violence. It's on there and it's pretty awesome at times. If you were watching in season one you may have missed quite possibly one of the weirdest things to ever appear on TV........a beheaded former president. In season one episode ten,Joffrey points out to his bride to be the head of her father who he has just had killed. A few spots down from her father is the head of former president George W Bush with extra long hair. You may be wondering why the president is making an appearance in the show. It turns out they kinda ran out of heads and used his. Obviously HBO is pretty pissed off about this and they're not hiding the fact that they aren't fans of beheading presidents.

Midnight Distraction

Detroit is a town with a lot of things going on in it and obviously not all of them are good. Illegal dumping happens to be one of the things going on here and it's a huge problem. Not only does it make the city look bad but it's a health and safety hazard. A couple of years ago I nearly had to hit a guy with a baseball bat for trying to illegally dump his random trash near my house and then getting offended when I told him to grab his shit and leave. Needless to say cooler heads prevailed and I'm not currently in prison for assault with a deadly weapon.

Thanks to our illegal dumping problems you do on occasion get to see news stories about the ridiculous blight in the city. The video below happens to be one of those occasions where the news talks about how an illegal dumper is ruining an otherwise decent neighborhood. What makes this stand out isn't the fact that the guy left parts of several trees in the middle of a street that people have to drive through,it's his answers to the reporter's questions. Click on the video below to see an amazing mix of stupidity,shifting the blame and unabashed sexism from a man who claims that he's a martian from the suburbs.  Also,the martian tree dumper is currently in jail for indecent exposure thus capping off the best week of his life.

Afternoon Distraction

It's been a few days since I've been on here ruining your day with ridiculousness. Of course this is because I've been doing other things like trying to find a real job and maybe one day a life that doesn't suck. One of the jobs that I'm not qualified for is truck driver. I'm not qualified because I do not have any form of a CDL and I can't drive anything bigger than an F-150. However,I do know that the life of a trucker isn't an easy one. They have weird hours and are often lonely. Also,they occasionally have to deal with people trying to rob them. Luckily one company has figured out how to stop some of that. Check out the photo below.

Terry Jones is still an idiot.

Some of you may know pastor Terry Jones for being a man who preaches Christianity while doing the exact opposite of anything a good Christian would do. Some of you may know him for his fantastic facial hair combo. A few of you may even know him for being the guy to videotape himself burning a Quran and then wondering why some people would be offended by him burning their holy book and then insulting them. If you're in Michigan,you may know him for insulting everyone in Dearborn by saying that the town is filled with Muslim terrorists who hate America. If you're in Michigan you may also remember his visits here where he tried to burn a Quran outside of city hall in Dearborn,an event that got so heated that police had to step in to keep angry townspeople from beating the dog shit out of him on live television. You may also remember that time his gun went off in the FOX 2 parking lot. Well now we have something new to remember him by. He has decided to step his foot into the political arena and let the world know exactly where he stands on the issues of the day. He's doing this by hanging an effigy of president Obama. I'm pretty sure he wont see what's so offensive about hanging a black man as he's just exercising his free speech rights. Click on the photo below for more.

End of an era

The other day I wrote about how Thaddeus McCotter went from what was sure to be an easy and decisive win in his reelection bid to being in a heated battle thanks to a ton of fraudulent signatures. It turns out that things are much worse than they originally appeared to be. I say this because as I mentioned in my last blog he now has GOP challengers coming out of the woodwork to fight him for his spot. I also say this because congressman McCotter has officially ended his reelection bid and will not attempt to keep the seat that he has held for 10 years. Could he have ended it because the state attorney general here is investigating whether anything criminal happened with those fraudulent signatures? We'll never know,but for now check out what he had to say about the matter by clicking right here. With Thad McCotter no longer running for election out in the suburbs,it truly is the end of an era in Michigan politics. I just hope that we don't end up with an idiot representing that district.
