I’ve been holding off on announcing these because there were still a few people waiting on the Kickstarter, but I just got word that the very last few replacement items we’ve been waiting for are on the way and should be here Thursday! Which means that I finally get my personal coins too. πŸ™‚

Oh my gosh, somebody actually reviewed my novel that's up for a Hugo?!? Or Writing Strategy.

I suspect Mr Correia is going to get some stick over this. Irony is often missed, even by people who pride themselves on getting it.

Great! Now if we could get Tamara to authorize a similar line of “powered by hippie tears” merchandise I could put together a set.

There is a company that makes a weapons lubricant called “Hippy Tears” or “Liberal Tears” (I can;t recall which).

That would be Tactical Shit .com Geodkyt. Here’s a link to their website. πŸ™‚

Viva el capitalism! The libprogs must be horrified that you get to make money on the title was supposed shame you back into your hide-y hole. By the way, I’m ordering a travel mug. Can’t wait to see the expressions on my coworkers’ faces.

I’m a Democrat, I think, and I like the merchandise. Sadly, I can’t get any of it at the moment.

Better stop thinking. Contemplating real world cause and effect is a leading cause of de-lefting. πŸ˜‰

I’m still learning about politics, so you never know. I’ll probably change my opinions as time goes on, or maybe not. I only know that I like mocking all forms of politics.

Austin

I’m going to get me some off those mugs. I mean, I’m drinking my liberal tears from normal glasses! That can’t be good for the taste. The new CorreiaTech mugs ought to improve the flavor by, what, about 66.7%?

“that the future is what you”? I never took Latin, and Google is failing me…

BobtheRegisterredFool
Guest
BobtheRegisterredFool

Never use google translate on Latin.

Latin codes meaning into variations of the spelling of words.

Yes, a proper electronic dictionary may be able to help sort things out. Understanding enough Latin grammar to know what modifies what, and what goes where is very important. Mine isn’t up to this.

My dictionary tells me that Futue rudely commands the reader to have sexual intercourse with a woman.

English codes meaning with position, plus some other things that I don’t necessarily figure out all that well. So I dunno how to parse the provided translation well enough to figure if it is correct.

SirShadesDrake
Guest

I believe the translation he provided on FB was “Because Fuck You Is Why”. Like many modern phrases, it doesn’t get along well with Latin.

Now, if we can just talk him into adding the “LC w/Big Gun and carried by Sad Puppies” graphic to a t shirt or other merchandise ; )

“Because fuck you is why.” Heh. Reason enough to buy the shirt right there. Put me down for a coffee mug as well…

If it’s wrong that I want to get one of the shirts and wear it to WisCon, then I don’t wanna be right.

Dave W.

If you can get a photo of Jemisin looking at the shirt (which will likely result in a facial expression by her similar to someone sucking down castor oil), I might offer money in return. >.>

I had a feeling that this crowd wouldn’t see an issue with my dreams πŸ™‚

Austin
Guest

I’d kick in a few for the plane ticket and entry fee just to see this. Anyone else?

T.L. Knighton
Guest

We’d just need to leave the return flight open ended, because you know I’d get kicked out in a hurry. Clearly, a t-shirt would make them feel “unsafe”.

RandyGC
Guest

I don’t suppose there’s any way to get them to offer larger sizes for the, ah, more substantially built minions would there? Perfect wear for Gencon along with my signed MHI hat.

Jeff Gauch
Guest

Is there any color coding for the minions? E.g. red for engineering/hard science types, blue for medical/gooey science types, black for the, er, special directorate?

Austin
Guest

Yeah, we engineers need to know where the medical types are to rapidly find them whenever we hurt ourselves building Larry’s evil racist super-weapons of hate and doom.

oh yeah, if one of the other branches of Minions wants to wear a red shirt, Feel Free. I’ll stick with the issue black, thank you very much. πŸ™‚

give me the pasty white version… The IT minions dont get out much and we tend to be translucent we need the extra white to set off our skin tone

JackCrow
Guest

Ha, silly engineer! It you are so careless as to injure youself in the performance of his Lordship’s commands you can expect no medical coddling. If you sicken and die then it is merely proof that you were weak and inferior and thus unworthy of the glory and privilege of laboring in the construction of His Lordship’s Hate Mecha!

I need at least one of these. Oooh, pint glass too.

“Fuck you” was not an insult used by the Romans. The closest might be “I will fuck you in the ass” although I speculate that “eat shit” would be closer to the emotional intent of “fuck you” while being an insult that a Roman might utter. But don’t ask me to actually construct a grammatically correct Latin insult.

votermom
Guest

I have no Latin, but the interwebz suggest “I will bugger you” :

Pedicabo ego vos

BobtheRegisterredFool
Guest
BobtheRegisterredFool
pedicabo is correct, ‘I will bugger’, but ego is unneeded and maybe even wrong, because pedicabo already codes for that. For example, pedico is ‘I bugger’, and pedicamus is ‘We bugger’. As for vos, maybe it is declined right for the grammar, I can’t tell with just my dictionary off the top of my head. The other pronoun one could use as that part of the sentence is ‘te’. ‘te’ is the right declension of singular you. If ‘vos’ is the right declension, it translates to ‘I will bugger y’all’, because ‘vos’ is plural. ‘amabo te’ is literally ‘I will… Read more »

“Pedicabo Te”

Catchy!

from a poem by Catullus: 1 Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo, 2 Aureli pathice et cinaede Furi, 3 qui me ex versiculis meis putastis, 4 quod sunt molliculi, parum pudicum. 5 Nam castum esse decet pium poetam 6 ipsum, versiculos nihil necessest; 7 qui tum denique habent salem ac leporem, 8 si sunt molliculi ac parum pudici 9 et quod pruriat incitare possunt, 10 non dico pueris, sed his pilosis 11 qui duros nequeunt movere lumbos. 12 Vos, quod milia multa basiorum 13 legistis, male me marem putatis? 14 Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo. 1 I will sodomize you and… Read more »

It’s like an Epic Rap Battle. I picture Catullus dropping the mic and walking off.

Okay, the vos is because he is addressing two different people, maybe fitting the one pronoun with the two verbs. I guess the ego makes it scan better. I heard the first line translated ‘I will poke you and I will choke you’. I avoided learning more than I had to about Catullus because I found the whole situation, and him as a person, creepy.

pst314

“Okay, the vos is because he is addressing two different people…”

I find Latin grammar hopelessly confusing.

Do you remember the hilarious “Romans Go Home” scene in Life of Brian?

We need a helpful Centurion to turn our favorite insults into proper Latin…which we will write 100 times before sunrise.

Sir, the cafepress.com link appears on my computer, to have been cyber-mauled: Clicking the link brings up a catalog page, which instantly disappears, pre-empted by a perpetually-loading, as in never finished, blank page.

By way of tardy reply to a previous post of yours, I offer http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/mark-tapson/miss-usas-self-defense-empowerment/ What appears to me, is that feminists antipathetic to self-defense want not to admit even the slightest possibility of legitimate civilian use of firearms.

Just in time for Father’s Day! I’m excited because not only do I now have an appropriate thermal mug for drinking my buttered coffee from, I now have an appropriate water bottle for triathlon training and racing (I know my performance is often powered by hate of various kinds). The only thing missing is a tech shirt option — I’d wear such proudly on race day. Any chance I could pay a royalty for the graphics and have something made on my own?

Ah man, you beat me too it. Father’s day gift???……..CHECK!

I saw that thing with Arthur Chu too. Chu did an amazing impression of QUILTBAG feminism privilege doctrine in SFF. That’s the first thing. The second thing is he’s just like the folks you see who flog that stuff in the SFF community: obviously very high functioning when it comes to behaving like a computer but with the abstract perception of a child. Chu can win Jeopardy but not make the simplest comparisons to overcome his bias. He just throws “racism” and “privilege” out there like it’s documented science. It’s also telling that Damien Walter thought Chu won that debate… Read more »

Because he wins 4 days of Jeopardy! that he’s entitled to more Hollywood opportunity. But playing a jerk on TV doesn’t always get the casting director to call on you to do their show. But what do I know? I’m just an Corporate IT immigrant from Taiwan. If anything, he has more privilege than me, being born in New York.

I’ll try and make this as clear as possible: much of this divide is about diversity equals “better,” and by that the PC mean racial diversity. Even if we set aside the idea that “diversity” is usually used as camouflage to attack whites and fixing an America that wasn’t broken, I’ll go back to part of my original comment. In my own personal experience as an American, the diversity of thought and interests in American culture is staggering when contrasted with Third World nations. That’s not a thing I can convey with statistics or facts but when you move around… Read more »
