  1. Re: Ventura

    Ya know, when this guy become governor back when, I thought it was a big joke ’cause that’s all I heard about it, how ridiculous it was to have a wrestler as a politician. But in the last year, every time I hear him say something, it makes more and more sense.


    “How could those buildings fall at the speed of gravity – if you put a stopwatch on them both of those World Trade Center buildings were on the ground in ten seconds – how can that be?” asked Ventura. “Never before in the annals of history has a fire caused a steel structure building to fall to the ground like these two did.”

    Unfortunately, my love for the former governor went out the window when I found out he was a “truther”. While I think it is great that someone like him could win election, an independent that brought a ton of first time voters into the system, I wish he was a better representation of that outsider edge.

  3. Now, the smart psychic would set up a motion sensor to alert them of visitors and open the door just before the doorbell rings.

  4. That is so true, about the aye-ayes being harbingers of death. I bet if you do a scientific study over the next 100 years, EVERY SINGLE ONE of those people who see one at the Denver Zoo …

    (cue ominous music)

    … will DIE.

  5. Improbable Bee, I would be willing to take a bet that at least one of those people will be alive in 100 years, but I won’t be around to collect the money…

  6. We all already know that the aye-ayes aren’t bad omens. Just don’t let one bite your mother, or you’ll have to take a lawn mower to your next house party…

  7. Aye, aye captain Detroitus. This calls for divine intervention :I kick ass for the Lord.

  8. You know, Ventura’s a little bit crazy, but at least he’s a brand of crazy I can understand, relate to, and wouldn’t really mind seeing in office. I think he’s made it pretty clear that he wants the best for the country. He’s honestly trying to make his home a better place. Probably most important of all, he’s not afraid to stand up and call people out on it when they’re out for something else, and I respect the Hell out of a man like that.

    I’d rather live in a world full of his brand of crazy than “invisible man will smite you, but he loves you” brand of crazy.

  9. I’m proud to say that my vote for Ventura was the very first ballot I cast. I never regretted it. It’s too bad that he didn’t run again. He’s right, though. He isn’t religious enough to be a senator.
