    To meme or not to meme, that is the question.

  • ThisIsNotNutella October 27, 2022, 7:17 PM

    Next step. Get those @#$%ing Pajeets, trannies, and fags out the door. And fire Coder Thomas Sowell for not removing his AirPods — ignorant git!

  • Casey Klahn October 27, 2022, 7:32 PM

    Yeah. If they have Silicon Valley headhunters vying for their affections, then why do they have that “there goes my cushy do-nothing bullshit job” looks on their faces? Or, maybe it’s just existential hate. Yeah, I vote for: it’s existential hate.

      I just heard that Musk fired that piece of shit Parag Agrawal. That babu was escorted out of the building. Agrawal has a face that demands to be punched.

        Looked him up, seen him before.
        You’re right.
        His dumpy mug would slide nicely all over the front of both of your fists.
        Very rewarding.

          We could flip a coin to see which of us gets in the first punch. If you win, just leave some for me.

          And another Ganges drinker gets shown the door: Vijaya Gadde. She was the one who got Trump banned from Twitter.

        Being thrown out of the plane is one thing, a parachute is the other. Any word on his severance?

        • Mike Austin October 28, 2022, 6:29 AM

          May I suggest a helicopter ride with Pinochet?

    • Snakepit Kansas October 28, 2022, 6:21 AM

      You nailed it. Hate. Looks like someone just told those two they had to drink a cup of kitchen trash can juice.

      • Casey Klahn October 28, 2022, 8:35 AM

        Yes, that is she in that picture. SHE who banned the sitting president of the United States.


        Anyway, I’m reading Twitter these days. Gerard and iowahawk nailed it: it takes, maybe, 12 guys to write code, and then the rest are: thought minders, diversity hires and hirers, janitors. Keep the last group, rail the rest out of town. I understand there’re some tent spaces left on the street. No reservation required!

      Master of special characters. I’m impressed.

        At first I thought that Casey was showing off his knowledge of Finnish. But then I eventually got it.

            No no, just a cut & paste of the dictionary pronunciation for that sweet, sweet word.

  • OneGuy October 27, 2022, 8:04 PM

    This is going to be like Trump’s presidency. A CEO with brains, experience and great ideas. A staff with the need and commitment to prevent him from succeeding. This could either all turn to shit in a year or become something brilliant. Either way this is going to be a hell of a ride. “Let that sink in!”

    • Mike Austin October 28, 2022, 3:35 AM

      Firing hordes of “useless eaters” at Twitter is far easier than getting rid of noisome, treasonous and sycophantic minions in the Executive Branch.

      For all the sturm and drang about this Twitter deal, my interest in it approaches zero. Musk is a rabid abortionist, a gun controller and a certified weirdo—just like his parents.

      • OneGuy October 28, 2022, 8:35 AM

        He may be all those things, I don’t know him. But I am right now in Phoenix and last night at 6:18 PM I saw one of the “certified weirdo”s rockets launch some 50 or so satellites into orbit. Right now the certified weirdo has launched more rockets into space than NASA did in it’s entire career AND incredibly he lands the spent rocket safely back on earth to be reused. AND the certified weirdo has launched more satellites than all of the rest of the world combined. AND he hasn’t killed anyone yet doing it. SO IMHO we need more certified weirdo’s like him. Just saying…

        • Mike Austin October 28, 2022, 8:49 AM

          I was not criticizing Musk by calling him what he is, a “certified weirdo”. I would be well-nigh impossible to find someone with his IQ who is not such.

  • Mike Austin October 28, 2022, 4:32 AM

    A Day in the Life of a Twitter employee, followed by Musk on his first day at Twitter:


    Musk need not fire 75 percent of all Twitter trash. That would be cruel and harsh. Seventy-four percent would be adequate.

  • oldvet50 October 28, 2022, 5:44 AM

    Looks like a bathroom sink, or a basin, to me, but I’m no expert.

    • Jack October 28, 2022, 6:31 AM

      Good eye, I caught that too but it should have been painted brown to signify just who was on the way out. Why does that place hire so damned many hindus?

      • Mike Austin October 28, 2022, 8:21 AM

        Cancel all H-1B visas and send those parasitical, noxious and America-hating grifters back to their homeland. This will have the additional benefit of crippling Big Tech.

  • waitingForTheStorm October 28, 2022, 6:02 AM

    When I was professionally employed as a software engineer in the oil industry, we accomplished big tasks with far fewer folks. In just over three years of concerted effort, I and 5 other guys developed, from scratch, a system that completely managed production oilfields consisting of thousands of wells and all of the metering and control devices attached to the wells, including the interfaces to the pipelines that moved the products. In the process, I created multi-threaded library objects that allowed the pipeline and refinery folks to talk to their control systems asynchronously, using an abstracted common interface, with built-in triple cubic interpolation for missing data points.

    I don’t think they realistically need thousands of developers to support a glorified website.

    send the bitch back to India

  • Occasional Commenter October 28, 2022, 10:05 AM

    Lenin had a relevant observation in his quote “give me the child for eight years, and the seed I have planted will never be uprooted.” By about their twelfth year, most kids have developed their sense of right and wrong by observing and absorbing the behaviors in their surrounding life.

    IMO, this is why Twitter became averse to First Amendment issues. Folks from India weren’t raised in our environment, so they have no sense of how much we value the First Amendment. To them, it’s completely abstract; they just don’t grok it. If Americans develop a high-tech social media platform, they must remain fully in charge to prevent it from being captured by non-American outlooks.

    (BTW, this notion about kids absorbing right and wrong by an early age points to a key problem with untrammeled immigration. How would we expect a young man who grew up in war-torn Mogadishu to respect and interact in our high-trust society? How about a fundamentalist Muslim from a barely-beyond-the-Stone-Age, Third World sh*thole country? No wonder Sweden is the rape capital of Europe. This is precisely why we need to restrict immigration — we have a legitimate reason to filter who comes in.)

      Interesting input. Hope to hear from you again.

    • ghostsniper October 29, 2022, 7:30 AM

      So, you don’t subscribe to the “Magic Dirt” theory?
      Me neither.
      As a young and developing lad I found out early on that pain is quite the convincer in determining right and wrong.

      • Mike Austin October 29, 2022, 6:02 PM

        Every race—Caucasian, Negroid and Mongoloid—has its own homelands. They should remain in place for all time. No race mixing, no mystery meat children, no sub-IQ types migrating to high IQ nations. Right now England has a Hindu prime minister and a Muslim mayor of London. Good God, what would a Pitt or a Wellington think of this? Enoch Powell warned the English in his “Rivers of Blood” speech (1968) of this, but he was outcast from his own people. What he predicted has come to pass.

        Whites should act as what they are and be around their own kind. Same with the other races.

        • Snakepit Kansas October 29, 2022, 10:16 PM

          Observingly, there is hardly a black person in the US that is even close to 100% black unless they emigrated recently. Quite a bit of white in the wood pile. Yet generally speaking, anyone that looks remotely black is considered by society as black. Por ejemplo, Patrick Mahomes is mathematically and decisively more white than black but most people would categorize him as black.

          My Filipina American wife and I have two currently in high school. One looks mostly Asian but the first was born in the PI and looks white as me. We married in the PI, got pregnant in the US but when she applied for citizenship they made her go back to the PI and wait. She gave birth in the PI and my daughter spent much of her first year in Asia. My wife would go to the local store in the Philippines with the white one and everyone would assume she was the ya-ya (maid) for a local white family. It would make her smoking mad! Currently many people think my daughter in our family is from a different relationship/mother.

          Not sure where I am going with this other than it is too late for expecting folks to stick to their own race. Party mix at my house. I grew up in all white towns but when I first saw Mexican girls at church, I was mesmerized. Brown skin, coal black hair and dark eyes… oh boy.

          • Mike Austin October 30, 2022, 5:10 AM

            Your point is well taken. I was writing more from a 19th century perspective than one from today. During those long-ago times, race mixing—for better or for worse—was never done. And besides, I myself am half-Mexican, that is, I am just that “mystery meat” I mentioned.

            I am with you on Latin American girls. I married as many as I could. Every one of my Latin wives looked exactly the same: petite with long black hair to her waist. Those were the days.
