I'll just leave this here...

This is a comment by robcat2075 on an article about how the heartless bourgeoisie are scattering the the truly creative proletariat
The next time Floyd Bishop pops into one of my threads on CGTalk to ridicule artists’ work that isn’t up to his very lofty, cutting-edge CG standards I’m going to remember this thread where he’s endorsing the look of… “My Little Pony”

If someone who’s not gate-keeper approved dips their toe into CG, Floyd Bishop is ready to swat them down. But he is eager to go to bat for a blight like… “My Little Pony”?

And we ponder why the biz is going in such absurd directions?
Well hello Robcat/Tim Buckley. I didn't know you were trying your hand in animation. Just remember, "You are not your work."

random discovery

Typically a visit to the emergency room cost under $1500, and a medical bankruptcy is usually against a debt that is under $10,000. Yeah, it's expensive (and justifiably so), but people are quite happy to take out car loans for much more than that.

About one out of every five dollars of the United States Federal Budget is for health expenses; e.g. medicare, medicaid, and tricare.
And yet all that money from the fed is not enough to keep medical expenses from being the #1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. When will the politicians finally learn that free-market =/= anarchy?

the people's republic of a STD ridden budget

My uncle just posted this on his facebook profile 10 minutes ago, and I thought it would be worth sharing:

"The government today announced that it is changing its emblem from an Eagle to a CONDOM because it more accurately reflects the government's political stance....A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of dicks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed!"
