Don’t mention the capital city of England and the year in the same sentence or window or logo otherwise Olympic trading enforcement goons will pay you a visit!

Oh dear, I do see the date above added automatically by the blogging engine WordPress. Worse the capital city of England is mentioned in the post.

Tut tut…

In case you missed what I was referring to in my above comment, please refer to:

Someone did list a whole set of words that you are not allowed to use together. Using London in combination with the year could get your into hot water. And a whole host of other words as well.

Does this really look like a man to you?

Or this?

If so, it’s probably time to get your eyes checked.

Yes, both of those “women” look like men. I’m referring to gymnastics and weightlifting, where it’s even more disgusting.

Angry Black Abobo commented on I Didn’t Watch The Olympics.

If those two look like men to you, I’d hate to find out what you think a real woman looks like.

Probably something along the lines of a barn in a housedress?

On women, muscles are not attractive.

In order to develop big muscles and Olympic level talent, you need to repeat the same motion over and over again. It’s actually a type of mental illness.

Based on my observations, an attractive woman would be considered slightly/somewhat overweight by mainstream media standards. By promoting anorexic women as “attractive”, that reinforces insecurity and makes women easy to manipulate.

Why should you care if I disagree with you on standard of attractiveness? You can pursue the ugly “women”, and I’ll look for real women.

Angry Black Abobo commented on I Didn’t Watch The Olympics.

Interesting logic. Walking is also the repetition of the same motion over and over again. I guess that must mean that walking around represents a mental illness as well. And aren’t you a programmer? Doesn’t that require the same motion of tapping at a keyboard over and over? That must be a mental illness too.

Why should you care if I comment on one of your blog posts, and perhaps offer a bit of disagreement? You can always close the comments section down, and I can read the blog of someone who can handle a little good-natured banter.

I think you are all wrong.

It is important to be physically fit and healthy. We are more than just our minds.

However our bodies are just “suits” that we wear. We are so much more than just bodies.

We are a creation that is itself capable of creation and valid work. Work is valid for its own sake.

Over objectification is wrong.

Even if you think these women look muscular, the muscles are female muscles are so by definition feminine.

If a man has small feet, it does not make him less of a man.

If you have evidence or a reasonable suspicion they are taking steriods please present it.

FSK does have a very valid point that mainstream media is overtly obsessed with body weight and that it does badly affect some women (and to a lesser extent men).

Who pays for all these athletes? I hope it is voluntary payments rather than government money. If a bank sponsors any of these athletes, the money should be considered looted, stolen and counterfeit.

My policy is to post all comments, even hostile ones. See the “node.js sucks” post for some real hostility.

I’ve learned that “The more hostility a topic receives, the more important the subject.” Our culture has some messed up ideas about “ideal female body shape”. By encouraging average women to be insecure about their bodies, that facilitates mind control and product sales.

This is an important idea. “Female professional athletes do not look like a ‘normal’ woman.”

Also, if you see millions of people on TV saying “Wow! She is attractive!”, a clueless person will follow the example, rather than thinking for himself.

I don’t care if you stop reading. Whenever someone says “I don’t like your ideas! I’m not reading anymore!”, then I know I’m writing about important things. Most people read without ever leaving a comment. I’m not going to self-censor due to a vocal minority.

Angry Black Abobo commented on I Didn’t Watch The Olympics.

Let me guess, you have a monopoly on what is considered “normal”, right? If a woman is physically capable of running a marathon, climbing a mountain, lifting more than just her own weight, and has some visible musculature, then she’s just not considered “normal”.

Perhaps you’ve been brainwashed by our obese society of perpetual layabouts, couch surfers, and ubiquitous fast food restaurants to believe what should be considered perfectly normal is instead abnormal? It couldn’t be that, could it?

Anonymous Coward commented on I Didn’t Watch The Olympics.

I wasn’t aware that my comment was a hostile one.

I was to a certain extent agreeing with you.

Listen to what I said.

I said that we are creations that are meant to do work.

A professional athlete does not do useful work, but solely works-out to entertain people rich enough to buy tickets. They are sponsored by big companies such as Nike and so when people buy consumer products they are paying for the athletes to train full-time.

It is wrong to do anything that is such that you don’t have a balanced life.

Then again due to oil and a huge population, not all of us can work full-time and so maybe it is right a small percentage of people get a free pass not to have to work and can play and train all their young life.


Normal office men are slightly overweight and hairy. Actors and models are not.

I was referring more to “Angry Black Adobo”.

Male models and actors have shaved chests. A “normal” man has a hairy chest. A shaved chest makes a man look like a woman.

Anonymous Coward commented on I Didn’t Watch The Olympics.

Charlton Heston is an example of a male lead actor prominent in films of a few decades ago such as Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green and Ben Hur.

He had a good build and was muscular, but not at all like male stars of today. He probably maintained his physique by normal, regular sports.

Male stars today are skinner, hairless and have gym muscles.

Charlton Heston looked like a real man.

Today male stars look vain and not at all like real men.

Anonymous Coward commented on High Frequency Trading Has No Economic Value.
With taxation so high it is no longer economical for UK companies to explore for more oil and gas in the North Sea and the declining reserves, the UK no longer has enough cheap energy to manufacture real goods. High rents and taxes means the UK cannot complete with more switched on Asian countries. I feel that silly looking boy, Gidgeon Osborne (UK Chancellor) increased taxes for North Sea oil companies.

I think FSK is being too hard. Without fraud, there would be hardly any economic activity in the City of London. Everybody would have to go home.

Why should the UK get its hands dirty on North Sea oil, when there are clean office jobs stealing money!

Without hedge fund stealing there won’t be any money for cocktail parties and balls attended to by the Conservative political party.

Why is FSK begrudging politicians looted money?

David Cameron and that silly arse Boris Johnson have nice plummy voices. We like our politicians to look posh, wear nice suits and speak properly. The Hedge Funds lubricate them with money.

Off-topic, but the news reports say that 40 police officers are surrounding the Ecuadorian embassy in London and are in all the communal areas of the building.

Anyone that does any basic research using the Internet will find out.

1) The relevant Swedish prosecutor dropped the case against Julian Assange.

2) The two women only had a problem days later and that was after they met each other.

3) One woman made favorable blog posts about Julian and took a photograph of him, after the alleged misconduct. She then tried to delete the posts, but due to caching they were retrieved.

4) One woman reported she felt violated by the police and felt they were putting words in her mouth. She refused to sign anything. She has left the country and is refusing to co-operate with the Swedish prosecutor with political connections from a city far away from where the events happened.

At least 40 police officers are surrounding the embassy.

My family had a sizable amount of money stolen from them. It is highly likely the thief would have been captured on close circuit television cameras. When the crime was reported to the police, they did NOTHING.

A house near to us was being burgled. A neighbour telephoned the police and they refused to attend.

We need our own small country and good defenses.

Even if there was a small country that was really free, it would be invaded by the larger States who see it as a threat. “They’re selling drugs!” or “They’re selling weapons!” or “They’re terrorists!” would be the excuse for an invasion.

Even if you have 1000-10000 armed and trained people, that still can’t hold off a big military. Even if you have a group of 10k, you can be sure some of them would be undercover spies. State thugs adopt a “kidnap the ringleaders” strategy. That gives everyone else an incentive to abandon you when the going gets rough.[/rawr]
