Comedy Party Does Well in Iceland

A satirical political party in Iceland won a plurality of seats in the country's capital. They're now communicating with another major party about coalescing.

"However, Eggertsson has yet to watch the American television series The Wire and Gnarr recommends that he does. Throughout the election, Gnarr has said that he will not consider a coalition with anyone who hasn’t seen The Wire."

This is a perfect example of comedy politics, which is what I wrote my personal statements about to every target law school, including Harvard and Northwestern. This is exactly what I plan to do in the future. Good for Iceland!

I think these comedians will be noticeably more frank, practical, competent, and moral than normal politicians. This will be a good test of the value of comedy politics. Hopefully they won't turn out to be corrupt assholes, or even worse, boring.

Tiger Woods's Divorce

 Elin Nordegren Wants $750 Million For Tiger Woods Divorce

Divorces between obscenely rich people are a great opportunity for people to realize that nobody deserves that much money, whether it's the attractive dependent spouse or the one considered to have earned it. It's shameful that a person can't read stories about these absurd situations of extreme wealth and extreme poverty in the same newspaper and put the pieces together.

Yeah, I guess

OK, OK, watch this anti-smoking ad, one of the better ones from my childhood, with 14 year-old Mac from It's Always Sunny at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltqssfzVyrw
and then watch the beginning of Season 2 Episode 4, "Mac Bangs Dennis' Mom" where he's standing at the door and says "Yeah I guess" again. I just thought it was cool to hear.

Al Pachinio Hero

Al Pachinio hero
Sandwich named after famous actor Al Pachinio, at an Italian counter restaurant. On the menu they left out an h and an i for some reason though.

No Shit, Einstein

I just watched League of Extraordinary Gentleman Origins: Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey, Jr. He's too short to be Sherlock Holmes. Also there were all the other problems with the movie. It was fine though. I'm glad they at least made Watson a cool guy like in the books instead of an oaf.

Busy

Sorry, between this absurd number of papers I need to do and the search for a post-graduation job, I haven't added anything to the site in a while. Don't worry though.
