It’s a condemn-o-rama over at Second Breakfast.

Posted by Tim B. on 07/20/2006 at 08:27 PM
    1. There’ll be no condemning from me. I’m a pacifist.

      Please don’t condemn me for that.

    1. Satirist. I’m a satirist.

      A pacifist is completely different.

      I knew it ended with ist.

    1. Throw Fisk out of an airplane?  I didn’t know they could open the nose of a C-5A in flight!

    1. Naturally I abhor violence.  Merely dropping a featherbrain from an airplane is not violence.  Therefore I don’t condemn it.

    1. I think it’s dangerous to toss fisk out of a plane, imagine if he achieves ‘Terminal Fisk Velocity’ and slams in John Pilger?, starting a Fiskoid Chain reation.  Fisks would start popping up everywhere, like Agent Smith did in the final matrix film. A fiskovian nightmare.

    1. I say throw Tim out of a plane for his wanting to throw Fisk out of a plane.

      (If I throw both of them out of the same plane at the same time, will I get extra carbon coupons?  How many coupons do I need for a new iron?)

    1. Fisk, Adams, Pilger and Negus would make a good splat.  The Australian officials in Beirut should make sure that Lebanese wanting help I mean Australians (funny that it took action by the Israelis to make some of them to admit to being Aussies) are who they say they are.  this punk wanted the country that he hated to now help him. http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006330629,00.html

    1. I blame the Americans. If they hadn’t have invaded Iraq then we wouldn’t have the opportunity for Fisk to remind us of his marginal sanity every so often on Lateline. Tony Jones must wince whenever he sees that the guest list includes the madman.

    1. #34: In the blogos, a “moonbat” is a leftist blogger or commenter. The righties are known as “wing-nuts”.

      As for Fisk, his essence is of such gauzy, insubstantial angel hair that I imagine he would simply flutter along on the breeze, descending oh-so gradually, alighting in, say, a village in Afghanistan, where the locals would probably pummel him again, for good measure.

    1. #4. Forget the C-5A Galaxy, what’s needed is a Hercules with a rear-opening ramp for roll-off cargo, i.e. Fisk.

      #7. Acceleration due to gravity is 9.80 m/s2. So given Fisk ‘falls’ from say, 5000 metres he would impact at a velocity of…I dunno but it’s terminal. You get the picture, it ain’t pretty.

    1. I think we should consider where this could be done, too.  I mean, we don’t want his Fiskness to land on any innocents.  I vote for doing it over Beirut.  Or possibly Baby Assad’s palace in Damascus.  They can’t call it a preemptive strike if we’re simply returning an old and valued friend.

    1. Speaking of condemnation – not really off topic – check out the report on the conduct of some UN personnel in East Timor. It appears that no one is safe – women, children or even goats!!!

    1. From link per #47:

      It has previously been revealed that in early 2001 two Jordanian soldiers were sent home with injured penises after allegedly attempting sexual intercourse with goats.

      Obviously they were Stoop Davy Dave’s gals.  No wonder we haven’t heard much from the guy-goat.

    1. #33 An anvil and a kitchen sink I hope…

      #45 C-5’s have rear doors too, and they fly about 200-300 kph faster, which will give our pal Fisk a more scenic journey when combined with the quoted change in velocity of 9.8mss.

      As for terminal velocity though, what is the teriminal velocity of a satin bag filled with hot air?

      #46, i was thinking somewhere near hawaii, not too close, we dont want him swimming there afterall, but baby Assad’s place sounds like a much better idea.

    1. BTW Oh a OT..but.

      On October 7, 2000, Hezbollah terrorists entered Israel, attacked three Israeli soldiers on Mount Dov, and abducted them Lebanon. The kidnapping was witnessed by several dozen UNIFIL soldiers who stood idle. One of the soldier witnesses described the kidnapping: the terrorists set of an explosive which stunned the Israeli soldiers. Clad in UN uniforms, the terrorists called out, “Come, come, we’ll help you.”

      The Israeli soldiers approached the men in UN uniforms. Then, a Hezbollah bomb detonated—-apparently prematurely. It wounded the disguised Hezbollah commander, and three Israeli soldiers.

      Two other terrorists in U.N. uniforms dragged their Hezbollah commander and the three wounded soldiers into a getaway car.

      Question. If it happened in 2000, one could ask, did it happen in 2006?

      Oh, Mount Dov, is near the Lebanon border, and this time that border was tunneled under, to achieve the same thing.


      But yeah, to the Jew haters, this and past episodes are Israeli ‘acts of war’.

      The condemnations are slightly askew. I wonder why!
