Everybody stabs themseves one time, right?

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Thursday July 24, 2008.

It’s another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series that makes useless comments about things you may or may not care one lick about. You are encouraged implored to take part by commenting, sending us tips, and spreading the word.

In the wake of my decision to take down posts about hell-bent soccer coaches, I have become an unblog on the front page of Google searches. I guess $36k can do a lot of things. Mostly, though, it can buy up approximately 1,438 domains with variations of your name, spam my RSS feeds with the same three entries every couple of days, and trick Google. I joked that the $36k could be cut to about $1,500, paid to me, and I could advise the same stuff, but I’m not a douchebag lawyer who pisses on the First Amendment. But none of that is in the spirit of the Hurl. Actually, it probably is. They’re a joke, as is the Hurl! On with it!

  • Bummer. This might be one of the best stories to come out of Nevada politics this year, and there have been a lot of good stories. Of course, anyone with a brain should be able to see through this.
  • Douchebags. Requiring licensing from something as ubiquitous as the nickname of a political party just seems to go against what the political party should stand for. Unfortunately, it’s the Republicans who tard out on the issue.
  • What!?!?!1 You mean these champions of artistry and free spirited expression need help making costumes? It’s almost like they just go out there to get completely wasted for a week and art is a convenient afterthought. Hmm.
  • Enter this, kids! I was happy to see that this contest was being run by Southgate Coins. There are very good people there, whom I have worked with on their coin club blog. I’m going to try to get my kids entered just because, who knows, maybe coin collecting is something they’ll get into.
  • Joey Gilbert must have really pissed some people off. He now is asking for the removal of another official in his investigation due to that official being party to an email exchange in which Gilbert was called “a pathetic human being.” He very well might be, but why are we consistently seeing this kind of behavior from people who should know better? First it seemed like a personal issue between Gilbert and Keith Kizer, the Nevada Athletic Commission’s executive director, was causing major conflict issues, and now we get this. Can the guy get a fair hearing and be done with it?
  • Heh, Bromance. I have yet to check out the emails themselves, but deemed this worthy of saving simply because Clemens can’t spell “douchebag” and signs his emails “22.” Didn’t he spend a lot of his time (and most productive, pre-juice) as “21?” I do believe he did. Talk about turncoating.

And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.

Ryan JerzRyan Jerz is an all-around good guy who wants people to eventually refer to him as "that dude who climbs mountains."
