Insanely Stupid Quotes:

What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims.

- Che Guevara

More Quotes from Communist Dictators

It is nobler to declare oneself wrong than to insist on being right-- especially when one is right.

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), oddball custom software (like the Candice project), 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".

Florida Governer Ron DeSantis responded to the Brandon administration's continued support of sexualizing kindergarten through third grade school children without parental consent. I hope this guy runs for president in 2024.

I think the elitists are needing a fresh set of drawers.

USA Today noticed enough cancellations to consider its readers' pursuit for facts. The monetary anomaly has forced the publication to alter its dissemination of opinion articles.

Would a business model that considers its patrons' intelligence be successful? :\

One of the Google idiots is so dumb he believes some basic chatter bot software the company shares is "sentient". To be clear, some switches that target trigger words is *not* artificial intelligence. This is not even a new idea (it was first implemented in the 1960s as a Perl script named "Eliza"). The key to artificial intelligence is motivation. And (to my knowledge)-- a motivation library has not been crafted, yet.

"Maybe us at Google shouldn't be the ones making all the choices."
