Insanely Stupid Quotes:

I began revolution with 82 men. If I had to do it again, I'd do it with 10 or 15 and absolute faith. It does not matter how small you are if you have faith and plan of action.

- Fidel Castro

More Quotes from Communist Dictators

The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Welcome to Insanely Witty Stupidity

The primary goal of Insanely Witty Stupidity is to entertain users. It serves mainly as a "hobby" site for its maintainer (artist-hacker-philosopher Michael Atkins). On the site, you'll find books and short stories, artwork, free software (software that serves a user rather than controlling him/her), blog-style commentary about the website and other interesting things (Witty News), tools for browsing the web (see below), random thoughts about politics and science, and more.

What Does Insanely Witty Stupidity Have to Offer?

There are ongoing book series (Case's Cases and Hailey's Follies), short stories or "novella" (L.I.N. & Chuck), weird art projects, and more (see links above). They are not updated very often. But, they are alive and well. And, progress will continue as long as the ruling elite allows. Updates about Insanely Witty Stupidity series are discussed pretty regularly in the Witty News column. And, changes are documented in the website's changelog (see below).

What Is Free Software?

The true purpose of software is hacking, not office work. Hacking is not security breaking (despite an unsavory reputation it has been appointed by unknowledgeable journalists). It is only creativity employed to make better use of everyday things. For a more detailed analysis, read Richard Stallman's article about hacking vs. cracking.

Free software may be something non-hackers have never heard of. Simply put, it provides some of the best tools a developer can produce for solving a problem (the goal of any software suite). By contrast, non-free software typically limits a user's problem solving to a simple set of tools that are not adequate for the job. For example, compare Microsoft's text editor "Notepad" to GNU's text editor "Emacs".

Insanely Thoughtful Articles:

2022-01-14:

Arizona democrat senator Kyrsten Sinema understands the importance of her government body's filibuster. She erroneously claims citizens entering a public building in January of 2021 was an American "insurrection". But, at least she understands the fundamentals of our constitutional republic. Her powerful speech to the senate clearly demonstrates that. Ms. Sinema disclosed the filibuster is "inevitably viewed as an obstacle by whoever holds the senate majority" (highlighting the fact that any government official (republican or democrat) is capable of abusing his/her granted powers). Apparently, Sarah Michelsen of the narcissistic ACLU believes this representation of constitutional insight demonstrates Ms. Sinema's colleagues are beginning to "break her". lol. I don't believe she's being "broken". Ms. Sinema is standing firmly against rogue threats to our constitutional republic. That is (quite literally) what she stated-- in plain English.

Pay attention.

A University of Washington computer science professor responded to the institution's syllabus "recommendation" with a clever hack (big surprise). And, the University's administration can't stand that it was beaten at its own insidious game. So, it is demanding the statement (it recommended) be removed from the professor's itinerary. Apparently, making a statement about a university's "indigenous people" is not relevant to the course being taught. If only somebody-- could've pointed that out. lol.

You may be missing the joke.

Portland, Maine's local government was forced to admit that COVID-19 does not present a "state of emergency". Otherwise, a lot of employers were going to have to fire people. The most remarkable detail about this story is the fact that-- the narcissistic fascists actually listened. I guess they had relatives employed by desperate business owners.

Enforcing minimum wage imposes higher costs. This should be painfully obvious.
