Insanely Stupid Quotes:

I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.

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".

Censorship is a touchy thing. Like a breath into a balloon, one additional utterance may rupture a thin seal. Facts can only bend so far. Suppression can only hide so much. Branding competition with an unsavory label doesn't reduce the impact of a harrowing message. Eventually, the truth will reveal its hideous face. Censorship is a hopeless suspension of inevitability. The perpetuation of vial stupidity is one of the reasons I stopped using Facebook.

Interrupt the continuity of propaganda.

The Biden administration purged the EPA of any scientists that have industrial backgrounds. This means that-- the organization your tax dollars pay to tell industries what they can and cannot do to the environment is being run by people with no experience in industry. Basically, couch potatoes who have never worked a day in their lives are gonna be sitting at a desk telling hard working people just how hard they are allowed to work. Now (if this seems unfair to you), guess what-- the federal government agrees. That's why the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) was passed in 1972. The agreement ensures an unbiased, scientific committee will be tasked with making environmental decisions. So, Dr. Stanley Young (a Trump era advisory member) is suing the EPA. lol.

Thanks to Steve Milloy of junkscience.com for educating me about this.

Dave Chappelle told the simple truth about nature. As a result, a few people quit Netflix. I (of course) will always recommend against quitting a job-- unless you've already found an equal or better one. It's important to remember-- the fact that you work somewhere does not (necessarily) mean you have to agree with the organization's policies. After all, you are only acquiring wealth in order to pay your bills. Is it *really* that important that you must agree-- with every, single thing?? But apparently, the caveman news outlets (MSNBC, PBS, etc) jumped on this opportunity like stank on shit. As far as I know, Netflix is still showing Chappelle. My prediction is-- they will simply hire replacements. I guess we'll find out.

Think-- then act.
