MMM 409: “Pyramid” in Antarctica!

Except it isn’t.  Well, not in the sense of having been built as a structure for human use, it’s a natural formation, noted by explorers as a “pyramid” as far back as AD 1913.

At least that’s what “they” want you to think.  It’s not like anyone not on the right lists is allowed to go check or anything.

If it’s not artifice, it’s not hard at all to see why it might fool you, like the “sunken temple” off the coast of Japan with its sharply squared-off stones.

Can’t exactly walk up to it, like I said.  The last time this part of the world was ice-free was ~15000 BC.  We’ve got evidence that parts Antarctica were once much more temperate, but no evidence at all for human habitation prior to the recorded history starting with the discovery of the southernmost continent in 1820.

Or, you know, it could be a man-made, badly eroded pyramid built with the help of aliens.

UPDATE: Don’t tell Mare to “calm down.”

  1. It’s home for shoggoths.

  2. Nazis. That’s my favorite theory. Nazi subs fled for Neu Schwebenland and maintain a colony to this day. Sorta like Iron Sky but vaguely plausible.

  3. Alien crossfit.

  4. I love this stuff.

    I would have thought it was made from ancient aliens.

  8. Talk American, you racist sonsabitches.

  9. The new outrage is “Trump ignored the Russian bounty program in Afghanistan on US service members”. Media blitz designed to make you think he’s as awful as they’ve been claiming for years. Except it is 180 degrees opposite to how Trump has been with our military. He is very protective of them and if he had credible evidence this was happening he’d take steps to combat it.

  10. Of course, no comment about Preezy Urkle who couldn’t be bothered with anything more intellectually rigorous than an NCAA bracket.

  11. Yeah, Trump spent, what, a year trying to end the Afghanistan operation and get our people away from the threat of being bounty hunted or killed, only to be stopped by his “own side” in the persons of Mattis and McConnell.

    But sure, HE wanted them killed at Putin’s behest. This is laughably stupid and people repeating it should be pelted with rotten fruit.

  12. There’s no evidence that the program actually exists. This is all based on rumors of a supposed intel report that may or may not be credible.

  13. You’d think they tire of analyzing Trump. It’s been what, 5 years of this bullshit?

    He’s transactional. He tends to make decisions based on what he thinks is best for America.

    There’s really nothing more.

  14. Anything like this is just fodder to keep the base hating Trump. They have an enthusiasm issue.

  15. Shocker: my FIL is accosting people in public for not wearing a mask.

  16. There’s a tinge of desperation in every new article they post.

  17. MJ, your FIL is asshoe.

  18. So, Roberts sides with the liberal justices to strike down a Louisiana abortion restriction.

  19. Shocker: my FIL is accosting people in public for not wearing a mask.

    Has anybody run their fist down his throat yet? If not, why not?

  20. Roberts is a liberal judge. His rulings have defined him as such.

  21. I don’t think he’s a liberal, he’s just a standard political class coward trying to avoid controversial decisions. His goal is to avoid another Roe v. Wade.

  22. I’m willing to come visit and bring the pain.

  23. His goal is to avoid another Roe v. Wade.

    Remind me, how did he rule in Obergefell?

  24. Political class = liberal. Prove me wrong.

  25. Has anybody run their fist down his throat yet? If not, why not?
    ————————
    Well, he only accosts women because he’s a coward so not yet.

    But it’ll happen. I just hope the fist is covered in Rona.

  26. Remind me, how did he rule in Obergefell?

    Against it.

  27. That’s consistent with your thesis, then, because that was easily the worst, most far-reaching decision from his court and he has to know that.

  28. Well, he only accosts women because he’s a coward so not yet.

    Sounds a whole lot like assault to me.

  29. He accosts women … look, you pay my airfare and we can have some fun.

  30. Carin, we’re going to need you to wear baggy clothes and walk like your dog just died. Gotta look vulnerable and delicate.

  31. https://www.npr.org/2020/06/28/884461869/far-right-group-pranked-dude-is-this-like-a-bad-impression-of-borat

    Sounds like he didn’t get what he was looking for.

  32. Count Cohen as another one who needs a fistful of ‘rona.

  33. On a different topic, much is being made about big companies pulling ads from facechimp and twatter and so on, supposedly over “failure to police hate speech!”. I don’t buy it. What I do buy is that Coca Cola wasn’t seeing any return on buying ads there. Too many ad blocks, market saturated, etc. and this is just the excuse.

  34. I think it is more woke corporations agitating for more freedom of speech restrictions on those pesky racists. Like Scott says, it’s all fake.

  35. Too many ad blocks, market saturated, etc. and this is just the excuse.
    ————————
    It’s probably one of those decisions with no downside.

    Saved expense, perception of being virtuous, suppression of political speech, etc.

    But mostly saved expense.

  36. I’m pretty disgusted with what’s been going on with these seed houses lately. I bought a large amount of ‘Sugarsnap’ pea seed from Fedco this Spring and about 25% (or more) of it is off-types. Either snow peas or a large shelling pea that I don’t want. In years prior to that, I had always bought from Hart Seeds but their proportion of off-types was increasing year over year, too, which is why I switched to Fedco fer chrissakes.

    Johnny’s is now advertising on their site that their ‘Sugarsnap’ strain is cleaned of off-types.

    A while back I bought ‘Fortex’ green beans from Territorial Seeds that was not as good quality as the strain of the same named bean that I bought at Johnny’s Selected Seeds a couple years prior.

    Johnny’s Seed is expensive but they obviously do select for quality and cull off-types. Which is what they’re ALL supposed to be doing.

  37. Johnny’s Seed is expensive

    *cough*

  38. NO JUSTICE

    NO PEAS

  39. wow. A reporter just asked Kayleigh if Trump believed it was good that the south lost the Civil War.

  40. Jay, you in the vicinity of Johnston IA? I’m seriously thinking of taking a training class there the weekend of 27 july.

  41. Ok, just finished a bunch of bullshit I had to do. Now I work in a bit.

    booooo

  42. Roberts is a garbage person.

  43. Jay, what was the answer?

  44. Johnston is north of DSM, where I work, so yes.

  45. Jay, what was the answer?

    Kayleigh: that question is absurd

  46. People still drink coke?

  47. Kayleigh: that question is absurd

    ———-

    That is an appropriate answer.

    Another might have been:

    “You’re stupid, I know this because you’re a journalist. A journalism degree can be had by any loser who shows up for class. This is broadcasted publically, I would think it would be in your best interest to avoid showing people outside of your immediate circle, who already know, what an idiot sounds like.” FONQ

  48. I really wish the South would have won but then abolished slavery anyway just as a big FU.

    Everyone would have that great Southern accent and people would be using phrases like, ‘I dare say,’ and ‘I do declare.’

    Plus dueling. Lots and lots of dueling.

  49. Wait, you DON’T say, ” I do declare?”

  50. MJ, I pictured you doing this all the time:

  52. Why did anyone think that if we stayed inside for three months, Covid would just magically disappear? The breathlessness, and people going on and on about JUST WEAR A MASK. And I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE ARE GOING OUT THEY’RE BRINGING COVID BACK.

    I mean seriously. Do they have ANY reasoning ability at all?

  54. I mean seriously. Do they have ANY reasoning ability at all?

    No.

  55. Don’t post videos of that cum guzzler Jim Carey or I’ll ban your ass.

  56. The IN county I was avoiding because of a mask order until July 4 just extended it to September 7, and the county I was driving to just added one starting tomorrow with no end date mentioned.

    No laws or anything, just edicts from unelected public health beurotards.

  57. Shut your old, cranky, cigar hole, Hotspur. He’s in character.

  58. You know what would be awesome?

    Instead of dueling with a gun, you used hamsters. Everyone wears gun holsters but tucked inside is a little hamster that you reach in and set on someone else’s hamster with a killing word.

    I dunno, like ‘HAMMER!’ then your little guy gets all amped up, runs across the distance and thrashes the other hamster.

    There could be a whole subculture of hamster steroids and hamster cross fit so your little hamster could be super jacked.

    Lil jacked killer hamsters.

    That’s all I’m sayin’. The world would be a better place.

  59. I think at some point in his life, MJ did a lot of drugs.

  60. You’d have to pull it out of your ass first.

  61. Nevermind, you use gerbils. Longer tails.

  62. Sprinkles!

    HAMMER!

    HAMMER!

    HAMMER!

  63. Mare’s hamster would be named Baldy.

  64. GO FOR THE EYES, BOO! GO FOR THE EYES!

  65. Hotspur’s hamster would be named Cigar Dave and he’d be a wily little fucker with one eye.

    Cigar Dave would have trashed many a younger, cockier hamster.

  66. Hotspur’s hamster enjoys yelling at clouds.

  67. In both agriculture and container shipping, policies – notably those of the European Union – are designed to pursue economies of scale. In agriculture the tool was subsidies; container shipping’s equivalent is the tonnage tax. Both sectors have special regimes that make them hybrids: market-driven sectors in name, but dependent on public support in practice.

    In both, creating local synergies is an afterthought that goes by the name of rural development policies in one case and maritime cluster development in the other. In both sectoral policies, building large firms is more important than guaranteeing competition. In both cases, policy reform has become very difficult considering sunk investments, path dependency and regulatory capture by corporate lobbyists.

  68. GO FOR THE EYES, BOO! GO FOR THE EYES!

    Miniature giant space hamsters are cheating.

  69. This is why GMO hybrid corn is the only crop that matters, until all the soil is dust because it’s not sustainable, anyhow.

  70. Corn Pop would be a good name for a dueling hamster.

  71. I can’t stand rodents. You threaten me with a little bitchy hamster and I’ll just fucking shoot you in the face.

  72. Not really. I’m sorry. Let’s forget I said that and be pals.

    Johnny’s Seed is expensive

    *cough*

    Hotspur, as a grown man, you can choose whether or not to not be a swine with the sense of humor of a 14 year old.

    I’m glad you chose correctly.

  77. Trump had Sulieman killed. Sulieman was using Obamabucks for bounties on American military. 45 got every D🐀 to say “Bounties are bad, m’kay”.

  85. Peej, Octomom was Iranian, too. I saw a clickbait recently that showed all of her kids, not just the Octos.

  86. Just saw that cheese puff bear helmet clip on The Five as I was catching up on comments. Before the ubiquitous nature of camera phones that story would have been relegated to a drunken campfire tale that everyone laughed at but no one who was not on the boat actually believed

  87. I stopped at a stone and mulch place to get some pricing on stone dust.

    I can pick up a cubic yard (approx 3000 lbs) for $32.

  88. At that price get two!

  97. Muldoon from AoS wrote a WW2 novel that involved training hamsters to fly mini-airplanes. I couldn’t finish it.

  98. TIL when Mr. RFH messages me that we don’t need to worry about firewood for a while, that means a tree (or two) fell in the yard.

  99. I did finish that book. I rather liked it.

  100. How many trees and why tornadoes in Huntsville?

  101. Maybe I ought to try again, BroTim. I just got to the second scene with the hamster and thought, this is stupid.

    I am currently reading “Around the World in 80 Words” which is by @HaggardHawks. I am enjoying it, there’s a good mix of etymology and story-telling, and the chapters are short, which makes for good bedtime reading.

    Not really. I barely do anything fun anymore. And I’m waiting to hear back from a perspective employer so that would be awkward if I scored high on my drug test.

    I think I had about 3 oz from 3 moves ago and I still have about an oz left. Maybe a bit more. Life has really changed.

  109. I’m intrigued by the mathematical criticisms I’ve seen of the known mutation rate against the purported age of the planet, with regard to speciation. It strongly suggests that either the age of the planet is much too young, the mutation rate is wildly variable, or evolution as currently understood is bullshit.

    I’ll watch the link later when I’m more sober, just wanted to throw that out there.

  110. RE: Math

    Variation, my good man. Variation.

    RE video: It’s very good. Nice epistemology of social justice and why it’s so fucking dumb.

    TLDW: Social Justice is not founded on objective truth and is therefore theory stacked on theory which means nothing.

  111. Ah, not dealing with biological evolution, then. I guessed at the content based on the URL.

  112. It strongly suggests that either the age of the planet is much too young, the mutation rate is wildly variable, or evolution as currently understood is bullshit.

    I’d vote for a combination of the latter two.

  113. Yeah, we already know that TENS as Darwin postulated it is wrong. “Punctuated Equilibrium” is a better description, but it has little explanatory power for why the punctuations happen.

  118. That hadn’t occurred to me, but makes perfect sense. NY state has no appeal even to leftists if they can’t protect their own property. Upstate might hold on, but why the fudge would you live in NYC if you can’t go to clubs/bars/restaurants and you can be mugged with impunity?

  123. Now’s the time to demand that NYC be broken off into it’s own state. Let them sink or swim on their own, without dragging the rest of New York down with them.

  124. Yeah, we already know that TENS as Darwin postulated it is wrong. “Punctuated Equilibrium” is a better description, but it has little explanatory power for why the punctuations happen.

    Any “stable” system becomes acquires increasing weaknesses over time, making it increasingly fragile. Even if there are no large shocks, this increasing fragility makes it more susceptible to the continually occurring small shocks.

  125. Right, what we’re waiting for now is some theory that gives a testable prediction for a speciation event. We know when they’ve happened in the past (mostly in response to huge environmental shifts), but there’s no rigorous explanation for how DNA “knows” that it has to come up with some new ideas.

  126. Ok. Who is ready to party?!?! I brought the rainbow sherbet!

  134. This evening we had a little rain shower as the sun was about to go down. Had a perfect full double rainbow.

    Got my gun parts this afternoon, but haven’t had time to start putting them together. I should sing a little song like Teeroy does. I’d be happier if I could find some ammo. Holy crap is there a panic on that and I don’t really blame them. I live the in one of the saner places in Washington, but if I lived in NY or Seattle or some large blue hell hole I’d be arming up too or planning to leave. I wonder if any of them will vote different?

  135. I always thought it was spelled sherbert. That’s how it’s pronounced. At least in Bumfuck TX.

    It’s pronounced sherbert here too….my mind was blown when I saw how it was spelled……..mind……blown.
    like scanners almost, but with less blood and brain going anywhere, and well, my head completely intact, but other than that, identical

  136. Got my gun parts this afternoon
    That’s exactly why there was a double rainbow.

  137. Hey now that didn’t even cross my mind.

    Our dog is just a little over a year old and still full of stupid. We’ve been having trouble trying to get her to come in when we want. Put a leash on her and she just lays down an won’t move like a big slug. We finally figured out how to get her in. All I have to do is jog toward the door and she thinks something is going on a runs right in. I figured she would wise up, but she hasn’t for the last week.

  138. Maybe she’s a democrat.

  139. All I have to do is jog toward the door and she thinks something is going on a runs right in

    You should hire her as your personal trainer…how many other times a day do you jog?
