A lot of people complain about the prices of gas and that we are only in Iraq to get oil so the rich can get richer, well I hate to break it to you politician majors but gas is not really that expensive when comparing it to the rest of the dumb shit you have no problem buying every single day without hesitation. Although it was sweet when gas was a dollar a gallon and I was able to fill up my dope 1992 4 door chevy cavalier for ten bucks, at car got me more butt then ashtrays…… Not.
Living in a third world country is a breeze compared to the harsh every day struggles and problems we are faced with. Honestly picking out lunch from a field of garbage is nothing to complain about next to these pains in the ass I have to deal with.
I forgot about my coffee at work and it went cold, so I reheated it but forgot about it again, now it is cold once more and in my opinion, undrinkable. FML.
Parking spaces too narrow for my SUV.
My local deli sliced my meat at a 1 rather than a ½ and now my sandwiches are too tall.
I payed $3.55 a gallon for gas, and then down the street saw it for $3.49 a gallon
McDonald’s only gave me 3 BBQ sauces for my 20 piece chicken nuggets so now I have to ration them.
The restaurant didn’t have coke so I had to get pepsi.
I really want a burger, but McDonalds is still serving breakfast.
I had too much food for lunch and now I’m tired
I can’t get a 3G signal at my desk, only Edge!
My laptop is over a year old, and the fan is kind of loud when I stream movies from Netflix.
I took such a long shower this morning that the hot water ran out
After posting photos of his face on Flickr, Noam Galai has now appeared in countless artworks without his permission. He’s honored by the free works, but upset by the ones that profit off his art. photography was stolen hundreds of times for years without his knowledge. This is his story, and it truly is amazing to see how something can spread so fast over night. I know 10 minutes is about 9 minutes too much for your attention span, but if you got the time check it out, it really is an amazing story.
Conspiracy theorists have been saying this for years, and all you hear is that the rich get richer. Well this new infograph from MotherJones. A huge share of the nation’s economic growth over the past 30 years has gone to the top one-hundredth of one percent, who now make an average of $27 million per household. The average income for the bottom 90 percent of us? $31,244. There are a ton of other great infographs on the site, so I suggest you check it out. The fact that some people make this much money isnt really the upsetting part. The upsetting part is how much influence they have on decisions that generally effect the more common man. Laws are being passed to keep theres top people in places of power, and in positions to continue to amass wealth that is beyond anything any average man would ever dream. Fight the POWERRR!
So I am sure everyone is aware of the protesting and rallies that have gone down in Wisconsin. Personally I really don’t know exactly what they are even protesting, something about a budget repair bill being passed and it is going to cut a bunch of job and money funding. I didn’t even know Wisconsin was an actual state till a week ago so don’t take my word for it though. Anyway a representative by the name of Gordon Hintz go an email telling him the meeting and voting would start at 5:00, he got there at 5 o’clock and the voting had already began, this was pretty much the last straw and he goes bananas on everyone in the room. Hintz for 2016 president all the way.
Bonus: A very moving video made by a UW Madison student showing the rally and protests over Governor Walker’s budget repair bill. Music is Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies).” (seen below)
The internet is a weapon to fight oppression which is arguably more powerful than guns with it’s ability to bring together the masses. The recent events in Egypt are proof of that. And now the United States is officially recognizing and pledging to aid internet freedom fighters in their fights against worldwide repressive governments. In a speech at George Washington University yesterday Secretary of State Hilary Clinton expressed a venture capital like funding approach to activists trying to fight against repressive countries internet censorship. Pledging $25 million of US support. She stated “I urge countries everywhere instead to join us in the bet we have made, a bet that an open Internet will lead to stronger, more prosperous countries. At its core, it’s an extension of the bet that the United States has been making for more than 200 years, that open societies give rise to the most lasting progress, that the rule of law is the firmest foundation for justice and peace, and that innovation thrives where ideas of all kinds are aired and explored.” This is the type of the US foreign policy that generation Y can really wrap their heads around and support and there still might be hope for Hilary not being a psycho hose beast after all.
Have you ever wanted freedom so bad, that you strapped bread to your head? Sometimes humor exists in the most tragical conditions and while there is nothing funny about what is going on over at Egypt, there is some humor in the helmets that these guys are putting together. Of course the reason is because there are thousands of people throwing rocks and heavy objects in protest of the government. The logical thing to do is to cover your head with something, but unfortunately all these people don’t have New York Jets helmets in their closet to use, so what is the next best thing? Whatever is laying around, that’s what, like a stove pot, or water bottles, or even loafs of bread for crying out loud. Here is a collection of the funniest of helmets seen so far.
More Egyptians helmets that even Macgyver would be proud.

Here is a graphic of every state and what they each ranked dead last in. It is always great to see what other people and states completely suck at. Yayyyy again for my awesome home state of New Jersey ranking dead last in taxes. Yea everyone else complaining about taxes, we have the most expensive taxes…. FOR EVERYTHING. But on the flip side I’d rather have expensive taxes then to be in a gonorrhea infested colony, I’m looking at you Louisiana.
By now I think everyone knows that America and Iran are a little different, and with that comes different rules and laws. Here is a long list of things that are illegal in Iran. While I understand some of the things on this list like alcohol and pork, whatever floats your boat Iran, but why Kenny G, WHY MAKE KENNY G ILLEGAL IRAN! He is a good guy and he can play the shit out of a saxophone. Give Kenny G 5 minutes on a stage in front of your people Iran and he will become legal real quick, that or half the female population will get pregnant instantly after he toots that groovy music. I would make commentary on everything on this list but I don’t want a durka durka Muhammad jihad put on zootpatrol, so I will let the list do the talking.

In 2010 there was a lot to protest. The BP oil spill, Conan vs Leno, The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, The Ground Zero Mosque and Proposition 8 just to name a few. And with every protest you will find a joker, expressing their right to be funny, because that’s the American way. Most of the people protesting things should stop screaming with a dumb sign in their hand and actually do something constructive about resolving the problem they are protesting, shouting and holding a dumb sign doesn’t do much for you or anyone else besides being the most annoying people on Earth.
