Freeman still trying for Rendezvous with Rama

screen capture of pollA poll on SciFi’s website says that Morgan Freeman is still trying to get a film based on Arthur C. Clarke’s Rendezvous with Rama. I hope it gets done. Rama is such a good book.

Also from that poll, nearly 700 humans are too stupid to live (see Response #4 and do the math, click to enlarge).

Texas Mega-Church Rev.: “Homosexuality == Murder”

The Reverend Gary Simons of the High Point Church said no to hosting a funeral for Cecil Sinclair, a Navy veteran, but that’s not all he said:

The pastor said that he could imagine a similar situation involving a different sin. Perhaps a mother who is a member of the church loses a son who is a thief or murderer, Mr. Simons said. The church would surely volunteer to hold a service, he said.

“But I don’t think the mother would submit photos of her son murdering someone,” he said. “That’s a red light going off.”

Yeah, because being gay is the same as stealing or murder. Because Mr. Sinclair’s very existence deprived someone else of their property or life? I don’t understand the connection that Mr. Simons is trying to make unless he’s just demonstrating his immense bigotry and stupidity.

Some cops are idiots, some are assholes, and some are both.

On Monday afternoon, I was wandering around town before a meeting and decided to go to get a snack. I had to turn right on to a five lane street. I was behind an un-marked police car (which isn’t that un-marked since you can see the blue lights in the rear window and the “Police Interceptor” badge that Ford put on it). We both turned into the outside lane like the traffic test book said we should.

I immediately signaled and changed into the inside lane because I had to make a left turn in a few lights so I wanted to be closer to the turn lane. As I was in the middle of the two lanes, the cop decided to change lanes, too. He basically cut me off and didn’t use his signal to boot. I got rather close to him because I wasn’t expecting that a cop would be so stupid as to do something like that without there being an actual emergency.

The cop immediately got back into the right lane and slowed down. I passed him. He again changed lanes without signaling and turned on his lights. He “pulled me over” in the middle of the lane to lecture me that I was following too closely to him.

“Do you know why I pulled you over?”
“No.”
“You were so close to me that I couldn’t see your hood.”
“Was this when I was trying to change lanes?”
evading the question “Did you know that there is a minimum distance that you’re supposed to keep?”

Imagine the audacity! The only reason I was too close to him was because he fucking cut me off!

The most stupid thing I’ve read all day

This is by far the most stupid thing that I’ve read all day, maybe all of the past week. Rod Bullough is an idiot a member of Freedom2Choose, a group that campaigned against the newly-instituted smoking ban in England:

The smokers are really being discriminated against and treated how we wouldn’t treat any ethnic minority.

Sebastien Gacond is NOT gay.

Sebastien Gacond, Swiss triathlete and Olympic hopeful, is not gay. He said so. He also doesn’t like having his picture on gay websites like Outsports.com.

“I know that the picture is not hosted on your server. But my name and the link is on your website,” he wrote. “Yes I would like to remove it because it’s a gay website. I’ve got absolutely nothing against gay people and the gay community but I don’t want my name and image to be link there as I’m not gay … I’ve got a girlfriend! Thank you for your understanding.”

Just to reiterate, Sebastien Gacond is not gay. He’s just an idiot.

Check this out: The only news results are articles about this.  So are two of the top four main (those not indented) Google search results for his name.

The expression is “The only bad press is no press” and it may be true.  I’d never heard of this guy before.
