He may be onto something. Today in Episode 2040 at 41:37 he suggests a 'Portal from Hell' that opened up between the Real World and the Screen World.

We know that the tin-foil hatters think CERN is opening up a portal [from Hell]. What are the chances it's not the high-speed physics, but Tim Berners-Lee's HTML?

Hell was always a place within us; technology merely enhances it.

I had a friend insist that Internet is evil. I countered that, no, it's the battleground between good and evil.

A portal to hell would be the least of our problems.

The interesting bit today was Jenna Ellis being compelled to sign something saying that others could read her state of mind better than she could, and that she's sorry, or something. Apparently it's unethical for lawyers to have opinions on certain subjects.

Maybe she actually feels like she purposely misled people and is genuinely apologetic? That's the whole thing about these contrived confessions, is that nobody will ever know because we can't tell if the person is actually sorrowful, or they just don't want to lose their job.

Anyone wants to compel my speech, and I'll make them apologize for allowing such a stupid and evil idea to take root in their corrupted mind.

The other interesting thing was how there is a correlation between increasing anxiety and depression in children as victim culture grows. Who would have thought that feeling like a helpless victim could cause anxiety and depression? Who would have thought that saying we have 12 years to prevent human extinction via human warming is unhealthy?

Some days I have more contempt for our society and human behavior than others, and this is one of them.

An SNL skit? How bad can it be.... I mean, how really bad can it be?

Weekend Update: Dilbert on Scott Adams' Racist Rant - SNL

Deepfake Dilbert really gets fighting words put in it's mouth. What does Youtube say: "Transcript -- No results found".

You don't say. Sounds like a 1939 error to me.

1939? Wasn't that the year a cowboy Polish prince played both ends against the middle and got his posterior handed to him? FAFO'd?

Nothing much has changed:
