11 Gifs That Take Us Through Josh Marshall's Day Yesterday

Josh Marshall (editor of Talking Points Memo) had a sad yesterday. Below is how his day went.

Our happy progressive warrior awakens from his blissful sleep.

Josh heads off to work, thinking of synonyms for "awesome" he has yet to use in Barack Obama posts.

He sits down and has a sip of his organic, fair-trade double mocha latte in a recycled paper Starbucks cup. He likes his coffee black, unlike his staff.

He heads over to BuzzFeed to read a few listicles.

Josh stumbles on a post critical of President Obama.

He scans the Talking Point Memo offices to see if anyone else saw it.

Josh gets very angry. BuzzFeed is supposed to only do pro-Obama posts.

He RAAAAAGES at Ben Smith and BuzzFeed.

Josh calls Ben Smith a racist from his comfortable lily white office.

This devolves into a full blown meltdown.

Josh closes Twitter and cries himself to sleep, drifting off to his dreams where BuzzFeed can't hurt him.

Fin.

I laugh at Josh Marshall's pain.

Also at the ADORABLE polar bear cub in that first gif. Or is it a puppy? I think polar bear. Whatever, ADORABLE.

8 A quick dose of DOOM ...

With the surprising and sudden resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, a new pontiff will soon be elected. According to the “Petrus Romanus” prophecy, this pope will be the last and will bring the destruction of Rome as well as the apocalypse.

St. Malachy, a bishop, went to Rome at the request of Pope Innocent II in 1139, according to Catholic-Pages.com. St. Malachy received a vision that outlined a list of 112 popes, starting with Celestine II, who succeeded Innocent, and the last pope, Petrus Romanus, would signal the destruction of Rome as well as the end of the world. The Prophecy of St. Malachy was discovered and published by historian Arnold de Wyon in 1595. Wyon discovered the manuscript in Roman archives.

15 Wyon (or whoever provided the list to him) was a fraud who made up the lists from historical records. It was meant to influence the choice of the next pope by making it seem pre-ordained.

76 I've seen the gif of the fat guy flipping the table over happen IRL. My friend was big into Magic The Gathering years ago and was playing some comicbook guy looking person. For shits and giggles, he forged a card so powerful, it was a game ending card. Something like that wouldn't exist in the game because once a player used it, it was an automatic win for him. It looked and felt like a genuine game card.

Well, he decides he wants to fuck with this guy and uses it about a half hour into playing. The other guy looks at the card, studies it for about a minute, then suddenly flips the table over EXACTLY like the fat guy in the gif and starts cursing my friend out. After he's finished calling him and his mother every name under the sun, he then asks my friend how much he wants for the card. My friend just laughs and says he's available to hand out beatdowns any time he wants. This makes the other guy incensed again and he storms out.

I was standing there watching all of this happen and I still do not get this game or why people take (took) it so seriously.

The core of our editorial approach at TPM has always been iterative journalism, which means rapid fire dogging of a story, updating new details in real time and making the format of the update conform to the content rather than the other way around.

That means we never want to be slaves to the structured ‘story’ as the coin of the realm in bringing you new information.

So I started pretending I was mad about the Flying Squid stuff. Actually I did consdier Flying Squids less interesting than Fossas, but I wasn't mad about it. But I pretended.

But then like halfway through it I started getting MAD!!!

Like, one guy, forget his name, but when I said maybe Carson would pursue origami, he wrote:

Maybe he'll pursue calimari.

And I both laughed AND got kinda pissed at him!

That sentence still doesn't make sense though. You make the format fit the content rather than making the content fit the format. Um... okay? So, what, they just incorporate updates into the original story rather than indicating what the updates are or when they were added? Or... what?

Have you ever heard "fake it 'til you make it?" Usually it's used in reference to being happy- or at least pleasant- in company.

You're actually feeling kind of ticked and more than a little grumpy, but you act the way you would if you were feeling better- smiling, laughing at jokes, etc. After a while (you usually don't notice exactly when) you realize that you really do feel better.

It doesn't work for everyone, but it works for lots of people.

What you experienced was the opposite of that.

There really is something to the idea that what we do affects how we feel or how we act in regard to things. When you act like something is making you mad, you have to get into that "mindset" for the acting part (part of you has to understand how "mad you" would respond, right?). Eventually, if you do it long enough, it comes to be how you really feel about it.

No doubt our sickowanalyzt friends will have fancy words that say the same thing. But I think that's basically what happened to you.

It's the first elements of cognitive dissonance for having lied to yourself about something. Keep it up and you'll be double thinking your way into progressivism. I think CJ thought he could keep the cognitive dissonance under control, that he didn't *need* it, he could just use it for recreationally to sound pretentious about evolution and religion, and it wouldn't get into other parts of his life. Pretty soon the manufactured rage was everywhere. And *poof* he faked raged himself into being a liberal again.

Bolt if it wants to escape predators, Japanese researchers said February

199 >>>I never did those, I think 6

month long monopoly games as a kid cured me of board games.

Unlike monopoly, which is about 60% luck and 40% not being a dumbass, Magic is about 20% luck and 50% how well your deck matches against your opponents deck, and 30% how well you play the cards you get. Since you get to decide what cards are in your deck it highly customizable. Magic in its early stupid years, made a few cards that severely upset the balance of the game if you had them, and aren't even legal for league play now. Some idiots pay thousands of dollars for such cards, like the black lotus. Counterfeiting in a collectable card game is hands down cheating.

AtC and I apparently have strangely wired brains. This isn't news, but still.

ace is unable to put a name to his feeling of faux rage transforming into actual rage. Therefore it is an unknown. Per his FOSSAS post, any unknown animal is a weasel. Tease this out to be any unknown THING is a weasel.

ace experiences something unknown
Unknown things are all weasels.
Therefore, ace's rage evolution is a form of weasel.


(Also, "ace's rage evolution" would be the msot kickass name for a band since Sweyn Forkbeard)

Tell that to my brother who routinely plays the Axis and wins more often than he loses (both against computer opponents and human ones).

But the game is supposed to favor the allies in the long-game. The trick (for the Axis) is not to play the long-game.
