Charles turns up everywhere these days

Looks to me that Charles Johnson is now the head of an auto theft ring in Culver City and other places in Southern California.

You can earn stats and cash by delivering various cars to his gated community. But no cheetos or mountain dew for you!

Who knew Charles was a giant of the truckstop industry?

In addition to being a failed jazz artist, a preacher, a gospel singer, a baseball legend and many other things, it seems that Charles also has his fingers in the truckstop industry. Who knows what else this man is capable of?

I believe that Cheetos are on sale in the convenience store side of the building.

The actual website is here. In all honesty, this is one of the last of the old school truckstops. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended if you are on Interstate 25 south of Loveland CO.

BTW, this is post number 2000 on Diary of Daedalus.

Someone needs a good asswhipping; Update: This may not be Jimmah of LGF

The other night, Ace over at AoSHQ went out for the evening and iceweasel let Jimmah out of his cage to wreak havoc over there. That piece of crap did so much damage to Ace that he was forced to start up registration which is a fucking shame since his freewheeling comments were an absolute riot to see and read.

Here is the entire story of what happened…

Comments Are Disabled Until Further Notice

I apologize to most commenters.

Jimmah, however, has decided to set blog policy for me, and several others have decided to challenge me on the point as well.

I will have to end commenting until I can figure out how to ban them.

This is precisely how I wanted to spend my Friday night.

I know that everyone else — everyone else — was of course pleasant and wonderful as usual.

But there are some who just enjoy sabotage and fragging.

I don’t know how to fix it at the moment, so I’m going to possibly simply destroy the blog by letting it go dark.

But I don’t know what else to do.

You expect to be knifed in the front by your enemies. It’s too much to be knifed in the back as well.

Again, I realize most people understand without being told.

My mistake here is thinking some people will understand if told — no, the sort of person that doesn’t know until told also won’t know after he’s told.

Thanks for everyone who understands without being told.

For the rest, registration is coming, possibly Monday. I do not have the time or patience regarding continuing arguments about Standard Blog Policy — standard blog policy on any blog, at any time, let alone now, when I’m under siege — and I simply will not be entertaining any more arguments about it.

You can be stubborn about a lot of things, but when you get stubborn over another man’s right to make his livelhood as he believes right, and to protect himself and his family as best he knows how, you’ve gotten stubborn about the wrong thing, and the last thing.

And also, you’re a bad person with a deep psychological problem, and no, merely being “conservative” does not make up for your selfishness and arrogance. You might want to consider character-building exercises over reading about politics. Before one’s a good conservative, one ought to strive to first be a good human being.

Without the latter, the former isn’t worth shit.

Just wanted to point out the asshattery of that punkass Jimmah.

Let the word out and tweet like demons, all you DoDers!

UPDATE: Ace has turned commenting back on. Let’s see how long this lasts.

Update II: Many are claiming this is not the same Jimmah from LGF.

The racist Hunan Taste restaurant had to change its name

To Hunan Tasty!


You see, back on July 7, 2011, I alerted the readers of Daedalus about the horrible den of racism in Los Angeles, the Hunan Taste eatery on San Vicente and Olympic. It is possible that the mindless minions of LGF were activated by the wise Sage of Culver City, the Guru of Culver Boulevard, the Wizard of Washington Boulevard and the keeper of the holy and magical ponytail, yes, activated to bring shock and horror to the owners of Hunan Taste of dangers of Nazis and eeevil bloggers and commenters that are Diary of Daedalus. Perhaps the fear of Chuckie led to the name change, since it is clear that the owners of Hunan Tasty don’t want to have to call the LAPD and eject smelly OWS-type LGF minions from their property. Not good for business or image. Just sayin…

It is possible also that the owners of Hunan Taste did a google search on Hunan Fried Rice and found out that Diary of Daedalus beat them in ranking. DoD comes in sixth, higher in ranking than any actual Chinese restaurant. Truly amazing.

Charlie don’t surf!

But Junior Brown sure does.

Face it, Chuckie, jazz music is fucking crap next to this genre.

The Globular Cluster Thread

On October 2, 2003 when LGF was a real blog with real intellects, Charles posted a photo from NASA of the Sombrero Galaxy. One of the posters named Yair denied that the Sombrero Galaxy was real because it lacked globular clusters.

Here is a screenshot of the very beginning of that thread…

By the end of that thread, there were 434 comments that lasted all night. It was one of those threads that was one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

For the record, here is the entire thread. It’s a long one but it’s worth it to look at, so just click on it and enjoy.

Could this be Irish Rose?

I bet the 400 pound tub of shit from the Grand Rapids trailer park zone sounds like this piece of crap!
