Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Denizens, the annual Memorial Day column reprint can be found here.

Happy Memorial Day, guys.

And to our men & women who serve & have served…thank you.


Believe it or not, Texas used to be a Demoscum state.

Now, Donks here weren’t anywhere near&#160 as bad as what you had (and have) back Northeast – but they were bad enough.

Texas is overwhelmingly Republican today, and Bill Clements was the man who got it started, back in 1979, when he became the first Republican governor elected in over 100 years

Bill Clements is dead tonight at 94.

Clements, who served two terms as governor despite losing his first re-election bid, died Sunday after what his family said was a brief stay at a Dallas-area hospital. The family said Clements had been ill for several months and grieving the death of his son, who was shot and killed by a neighbor last year.

“It is somewhat fitting that he died Memorial Day Weekend since he so appreciated the opportunities he had to serve his state and country,” the family said in a statement.

The Texas House honored Clements with a moment of silence Sunday on the chamber floor.

“As the father of the modern day Texas Republican Party, Gov. Clements is responsible for the growth, success and election of Texas Republicans in every corner of our state,” Gov. Rick Perry said. “Today, Texans and Americans have lost a leader whose leadership, service and patriotism were unparalleled.”

Our thoughts & prayers are with the Clements family tonight.&#160 The governor will be sorely missed.


Denizens, go read this tear-jerker of a story.

[SCENE:&#160 Realm&#153 spacedock.&#160 In the abscence of Lord Darth Venomous (whom, you will recall, is currently languishing in Facebook Hell&#153), Supreme General Rayegun has arrived from the Southern Command&#153 to oversee things.&#160 His first order of business was to organize a search for the Admiral.

He is conferring now with Captain Korrioth, Realm&#153 shipmaster Commander K’tinghe and the rest of the senior staff.]

RAYEGUN:&#160 So where is this ribbon now?

KORRIOTH:&#160 Badlands, General.&#160 Specifically, Sector 11287, in the Hogan system.&#160 Estimated 3.1 days until it hits the Umagakhali Nebula.

RAYEGUN:&#160 And you still believe His Snarkiness is in there.

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 His last known position, yes, General.

RAYEGUN:&#160 Very well. What do we have in the way of ships around here?

K’TINGHE:&#160 We’ve come up with this prototype—

RAYEGUN:&#160 You are not&#160 sending the prototype in there after my friend, Commander, is that clear???

K’TINGHE:&#160 Uh, not that&#160 prototype, General.

[K’tinghe moves to the wall display on the far wall and touches a control.&#160 A nasty, sleek-looking, dark-charcoal gray battlecruiser appears on the display.]

K’TINGHE:&#160 General, this is the fleet’s newest vessel – Pegasus II.&#160 We have built it with the strongest titanium alloy available, and coated it with a neutronium armor.&#160 It is currently rated to withstand 2.5 times the amount of gravometric turbulence that our previous ships could tolerate.&#160 It is ideal for going into areas that would tear apart other, lesser ships.

RAYEGUN:&#160 Such as the perimeter of this ribbon.

K’TINGHE:&#160 Aye, sir.&#160 But that’s not the best part.&#160 (K’tinghe touches another control.)&#160 Look what we’re powering it with.

[Rayegun’s mouth virtually hits the floor.]

RAYEGUN:&#160 I don’t believe it.&#160 He finally took my suggestion and put—

MERLIN:&#160 Well, it wasn’t exactly&#160 his idea.&#160 Amazing what you can accomplish when a technical Luddite isn’t around to put the kibosh on things.


RAYEGUN:&#160 Very well, then.&#160 Get this ship prepped and on its way.&#160 I can’t imagine we have all that&#160 much time.

KORRIOTH:&#160 Aye, General. (to K’tinghe) Move.

K’TINGHE (with a suddenly tight look on his face):&#160 Captain—

KORRIOTH:&#160 Is there a problem, Commander?

K’TINGHE(gulping almost audibly):&#160 No, m’lord.&#160 On my way.

[He turns to go, a sullen look on his face.&#160 Korrioth ponders this for a moment, then turns his attention away, filing the sequence for later.]

Changes are coming.

Not anything that’ll affect you guys, but they’ll be fun to talk about, once in place.&#160 (Well, they will be for the geeks among us, anyway.)

Watch this space.


(Hat tip Alan K. Henderson.)


Just, ew.

(sigh) Jedi scum…&#160


ITEM:&#160 Ed “Sergeant” Schultz yesterday called radio host Laura Ingraham a “right-wing alut”.

ED SCHULTZ (02:52): And what do the Republicans thinking about? They’re not thinking about their next-door neighbor. They’re just thinking about how much this is going to cost. President Obama is going to be visiting Joplin, Mo., on Sunday but you know what they’re talking about, like this right-wing slut, what’s her name?, Laura Ingraham? Yeah, she’s a talk slut. You see, she was, back in the day, praising President Reagan when he was drinking a beer overseas. But now that Obama’s doing it, they’re working him over.

Now, to their credit, (P)MSNBC has “suspended” the fat fuck for a week (they’re painting it as though it was Schultz’s idea).

But I would pay real money if that fat-assed son-of-a-bitch were to say it to Mr.&#160 Ingraham’s face.&#160 That’d be better than any MMA or UFC match.

You’re a chickenshit, Edwina.&#160 Come down to Texas and spew that BS to my&#160 face and see what happens, pussy.



Harry Camping is at it again.&#160 (So much so that I may have to create a new category for the idiot.)

Having just been absolutely humilated “flabbergasted” at the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob showing him, a la&#160 Job, just how effing insignificant he really is in the whole scheme of things, Princess Harry now&#160 claims Judgement Day will occur on October 21.

His excuse reasoning?

A California preacher who foretold of the world’s end only to see the appointed day pass with no extraordinarily cataclysmic event has revised his apocalyptic prophecy, saying he was off by five months and the Earth actually will be obliterated on Oct. 21.

Harold Camping, who predicted that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven Saturday before catastrophe struck the planet, apologized Monday evening for not having the dates “worked out as accurately as I could have.”

Oh.&#160 Is that it?&#160 Well, why didn’tcha say so?



The General – along with the rest of you anti-Microsoft bigots (grin) – will be pleased to learn that Yours Truly&#153 has started down the path of one particular Dark Side&#153.

For this post…is being written on a Linux box.

More later.&#160 Gotta go pick up Mrs. Venomous’ car and cough up $500 to turn off a “check engine” light.&#160


Browsing through my collection of Intertubes favorites, I came across this article on Engadget.

Here’s just the splashy numbers:

There are SSDs and then there are SSDs — the Texas Memory Systems (TMS) RamSan-70 is definitely the latter, packing 900GB of high-speed SLC NAND flash onto a single half-length PCIe card. Boasting an incredible 2GB-per-second sustained external throughput, this near-terabyte solid state drive is clearly overkill for most of us, considering that it’s guaranteed to have a sky-high price (once details are released). Instead, the “900GB Gorilla,” as it’s come to be known around TMS HQ, is destined for high-end servers — though we certainly wouldn’t object to clearing out a slot in our desktop, if by some miracle we can afford this monster when it starts shipping in four to eight weeks.

Oh. Emm. Gee!!!!

The manufacturer lovingly calls it the “900GB Gorilla”. Although pricing will clearly put it out of the range of basically everything except the high-end server market….it would be seriously SUH-WEEET in a desktop case near the Command Bunker. Guess the General is going to need to put in the Purchase Order Request later this summer when this gem is available on the market.



Well, Denizens, I’m pleased to see we’re all still here.

Y’see, contrary to what Harry Camping was bloviating about, I had every confidence that we were going to get through his so-called “Judgement Day” fully intact.

See, here’s the thing:&#160 Not even Christ Himself knows when all this is going to happen.

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone…Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.

(And may God add His blessings to the reading of His holy Word.)

So, if God’s own Son admits that not only can no earthly man know when all this is going to take place, but that He Himself doesn’t even know…then we’re all supposed to take Widdle Harry Camping’s word for it?

I.&#160 Don’t.&#160 Effing.&#160 Think.&#160 So.

Which is why I’m not surprised that we’re all still here.&#160 And will be until the Lord really does&#160 come back for us.

Thanks for playing, Harry, have a nice day.&#160 Buh-bye.&#160

The Death of May 21st

Pastor Fisk and I are not always on the same page, but in this matter, he is right on the money.

In his video piece, Rev. Fisk makes reference to a blog article by another Confessional Lutheran pastor. You can find that article here.


Those of you who have read me for any&#160 length of time – well, you probably knew it was coming all along, didn’t you? – but you know damned well what this is.

(No, smartasses – it’s not the trumpet sounding that so-called “Judgment Day” or “Rapture” that that damnfool Harry Camping is bleating about.&#160 I’ll have more on that later on today.

For now, click the link.&#160 Go ahead.&#160 Click it.&#160 I effin’ dare&#160 you.

And turn it up.&#160 Waaaaaay&#160 up.&#160 &#160 )

That’s right, sportz fanz:&#160 It’s vacation time for His Rudeness&#153.&#160 A chance to Get Away From It All&#153, as it were.

Thanks to Bambi & his shitty economy, though, Mrs. Venomous & I are staying in town and not doing a helluva lot, due to the money just not being there.

MRS. VENOMOUS:&#160 Ohhhhhh, don’t worry, sweetie.&#160 We’ll find plenty&#160 of things to do. (wink)


Vicar, General – you guys have the conn.&#160 General, could I borrow a squadron of those black helicopters…?&#160


My money is on Mr. Netanyahu.
