Insanely Witty Stupidity


Insanely Stupid Quotes:

We executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation.

- Che Guevara

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".

Insanely Thoughtful Articles:


Middle school students in Wisconsin are worried they won't be accepted into college universities because they failed to refer to other students by pronouns that contradict their DNA's expression of gender. The Wisconsin school system is attempting to classify this failure of psychic ability as sexual harassment. I've never met a psychic. But, I *have* met delusional people who expect more from human beings than what is physically possible.

Ohhh-- you're a "them"? My apologies to y'all. :\

California idiots claim to be so ignorant about the climate change that they are refusing to de-salinate water-- even though La Nina is kicking the state's ass. Instead, they would prefer to keep private water bottling plants in a booming state?? My suspicion is that government officials are being paid kickbacks for their continued stalemate. But, I mean-- maybe they're actually that stupid (which is a scary thought).

Leave California.

The party of dumb failed to oppress state governments with unlawful legislation (not that states would follow it, anyway). And, their little parrots are resorting to the usual party line that the evil "filibuster" struck down abortion rights that most states will retain (even if the United States supreme court surprises me by overturning Roe v Wade).

Those damned filibustering forefathers! Dx
