Consensual Stupidity

I worked really hard today, figured out a formula and  also understood many things in my energy project. And then...I turned on the TV ( big mistake) and looked at some sites... .

1. Apparently US boxer M. appeared in Russia   accompanied by the  USSR anthem. The Russian  boxer who fought  with him chose a potpourri from the ' Phantom of the Opera'. US boxer  won bya  knockout. His appearance and his  victory were  greeted by the Russian public with unbelievable support and enthusiasm of all but  President  Putin who nearly had a nervous breakdown when he heard the music.  And... the US media coverage  cut out (yes) the USSR anthem  from the broadcast.

2. I read in the Rolling Stones  magazine about Rachel Maddow  being ' raging liberal' but trying to create a 'nerdy image'. Now I understand why  she looks so goofy   for some time and boring too.

3. Suddenly  Syria is out of the picture since Moslem Brotherhood won in Egypt. What shall Hillary do now? Pronounce Egypt a part of Axis of Evil?

4. Oh, yes, yes, yes,   all eyes are on the Supreme Beings in SCOTUS who wil make us feel orgazm with their wise decisions.   I already feel like our media will go into the discourse paroxysm for a year.

5. I think I know  why women  here in the US  want so vehemently to preserve the right to abortion.  They know that in most cases their  potential off-springs will have no souls, so they wisely  want to rid us of those  unfortunate personalities from the start.

6. Our  Incredible Jumping  President recently celebrated  the  TV- killing of a person far away  whose name he could not pronounce and whom he had never seen before.    It is suggested   that celebrations of that sort would be from now on  followed by  pardons of  serial killers in the US.

7. I read recently a  beautiful statement by one of the OEN commenters (if  that person reads this- please, let me know the authorship - I forgot), 'There is only one President in the US- he just changes names periodically.'

8.  Someone used a statement  of " pulling a Reagan on  a person.'  I would assume that means  taking the person's brains out and replacing those with oatmeal.

9. US  and Western Europe recently celebrated  the end of WWII by... forgetting that the  WWII happened.

10. In Arizona  a cop demanded an ID for  a traffic violation from an untidy person with Middle- Eastern   features.  At the same time a herd of swine was passing by. The   presumed alien  ( according to the witnesses)  murmured something and suddenly  all the swine dropped dead while  the cop started to exhibit the symptoms of significant mental disorder  by  shouting ,'We are legion.' The Middle- Eastern  person then proceeded on his donkey to the Governor's mansion.
