Waiting 4 Wrath - 133 - The One Where We Clardic Fug Hitler’s Bylfgoam Glosd

In This Week’s Show, we find new fabulous colors for the marriage rainbow until some super uncool Russians tried to submit “Auschwitz Spanked Bottom Red.”
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Supay (the Incan god of death and their underworld, Uku Pacha) hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying his patience!
Shea’s Life Lesson
This week I decided that after I die I want my remains spread at Disney World. I also decided that I don't want to be cremated...
 
Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know that snakes (among many other animals) were sacred to the Incans? Called Amaru, the snake represents our own way through this world, as we moved crawling, trying to evolve and find our destiny and sense in the universe.
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!

Special thanks to Dave and Reb’Ox for texting in some awesome looking beers to our Drunk Dial Line: (513) 760–0463! Those look tasty. Also, there are reasons why Jenn is in charge of communications - because when I do it you get weird leg pics then overly self conscious justifications for it… [cough]. On a related note, everyone should check this week’s Bonus Cat Videos in the show notes for one of my favorite versions of Charlie Chaplin’s final speech in The Great Dictator.
 
Voicemail
We have a fabulous voice mail from a fabulous guest host!
This week marks the third anniversary of Waiting 4 Wrath.
While it did take a long while to get those first few shows out — and even longer to round out the show with enough hosts to make the title relevant — this pseudo-noteworthy date comes on the heels of our 100th Patreon show! So I kinda feel like by their powers combined it’s a good time to get a little mushy.
And to that end, I’d like to thank all our generous supporters, our amazing listeners and perhaps most importantly, the very fine folks who come into the studio and make up for my lack of personality, facts, research, humor, a diverse view-point, sobriety, social skills and audio production.
So, to Jim, Jenn, Shea & Steve, you’re the best co-hosts an angry young atheist podcasting hopeful could have asked for and I can’t wait to see what the next 3 years and 150 episodes bring!

New colors mean better ways to describe the world around me! Oh, wait... - http://bit.ly/2rWv7zC
 
Research scientist and neural network goofball Janelle Shane decided to train a neural network to generate new paint colors, complete with appropriate names. The results are possibly the greatest work of artificial intelligence to date…
Shane explained on her Tumblr, "For this experiment, I gave the neural network a list of about 7,700 Sherwin-Williams paint colors along with their RGB values. Could the neural network learn to invent new paint colors and give them attractive names?"
She chose a neural network algorithm called char-rnn, which predicts the next character in a sequence. So basically the algorithm was working on two tasks: coming up with sequences of letters to form color names, and coming up with sequences of numbers that map to an RGB value.
Shane notes that, at first, the algorithm seemed to be forming words that are a combination of brown, blue, and gray.
  • Caae Brae
  • Saa Ble
The longer it processed the dataset, the closer the algorithm got to making legit color names, though they were still mostly surreal: "Soreer Gray" is a kind of greenish color, and "Sane Green" is a purplish blue. When Shane cranked up "creativity" on the algorithm's output, it gave her a violet color called "Dondarf" and a Kelly green called "Bylfgoam Glosd." 
In the end, she concludes: "1. The neural network really likes brown, beige, and grey; 2. The neural network has really, really bad ideas for paint names." 
Honestly, I just can’t wait for crayons with names like; Snowbonk, Bunflow, Bank Butt, Sink, Light of Blast, Clardic Fug, Stargoon, Dorkwood, Sindis Poop, Stoner Blue, Stanky Bean, Turdly, 
On a side note, Janelle Shane seems pretty awesome and you can check out everything else she has unleashed her neural network on, from Dr. Who to heavy metal band names,
 
The Russians Summon Their Most Powerful Hero To Defeat The Evil Demon WannaCry - http://bit.ly/2rWwIWo
Holy water is not typically your first line of defense when dealing with malicious computer software but as we all have learned, Russia doesn’t do anything typical. 
Last week, in case you haven’t heard, there was a worldwide cyberattack by the WannaCry ransomware crypto worm, which targets computers running Windows by encrypting data and demanding ransom payments in the Bitcoin cryptocurrency.
The attack started on Friday, 12 May 2017,[8] and within a day was reported to have infected more than 230,000 computers in over 150 countries.
Russia, inevitably, was also hit and WannaCry and managed to compromise the systems of Russian banks in some isolated cases. Vladmir Putin, being the pragmatist that he is, probably called up his good friend Patriarch Kirill to erect some magic spirit barriers to protect the computers from the evil virus!
Although this story hasn’t been confirmed there has been an older picture of Kirill blessing some government computers floating around the web, so we know he has blessed them it the past. Also knowing that Vald and Kirill have been close for years I feel like its not a long jump to assume he called up Super Sayin Pope to deal with this, probably demonic, threat. 

This Week’s Stories

Jenn’s Story
To make up for the ridiculousness of last week’s story, here’s some history:
Gisella Perl, The Angel of Auschwitz.
This story has some unusual historical significance, and probably a lot of people would actually condemn her, but her story is inspiring and it’s a tragedy more people aren’t familiar with her work and bravery.
Gisella was born in Hungary in 1907. She was shown to be extremely bright and talented at an early age, graduating secondary school at age 16 (the first woman and the only Jew to have done this up to this time). *side note, secondary school in Hungary is usually not even started until a student is 16*
She decided early she wanted to go into medicine. Her father attempted to change her mind because he felt it would cause her to abandon her Jewish faith, but despite his misgivings, she completed medical school and became a licensed gynecologist. She was working as such, living with her surgeon husband and children in Romania until 1944 when the Germans invaded.
It was that very year she, her husband and her son ended up being sent to Auschwitz. This death camp is notorious enough in itself to understand what being sent there could mean, but there was an added element of awful that is sometimes forgotten. Auschwitz was the domain of Dr. Josef Mengele, Captain of the SS and a seriously fucked up son of a bitch. Most people have heard of him, but not everyone knows exactly why he has been made so infamous and that he is referred to as ‘The Angel of Death’ and “the cruelest Nazi of the Holocaust”.

Faith In Humanity Restored

Keeping the Catholic train a roll’n (see this week’s patreon story at http://patreon.com/w4w) we’re visiting a Catholic schoolboy asked to defend church’s morals… who then turned in a 127-page “Gay Marriage is Fabulous” paper!
The 11th grader, who goes by reddit username is AverageSmurf, was asked to write a paper defending the morals of one of the church’s teachings.
“The assignment is to write a ‘Summa Theologica’ style paper where you present a ‘moral dilemma,’ which is where you give the objections to church teaching and then the replies from the church. The exact words my teacher said in class were that you have to provide the church teaching to ‘show and prove that the church’s position is right,’” the student writes on Reddit.
Instead, he turned in a 127-page whopper of a paper, simply titled Gay Marriage is Fabulous.
When the issue of “why is the church so against gay marriage” came up, I asked for the little “talking ball” and just started going for like 15 minutes on how the bible isn’t a condemnation of homosexuality and in all ways affirms love rather than hate and how god doesn’t make mistakes when he makes us, we are who we are. After which, when she started quoting Aquinas on natural law, I stood up and said that natural law has no basis in scripture, science, and fails the is-ought fallacy presented by David Hume and is bases heavily on divine command theory which fails the Euthyphro dilemma. Then I went on about how, when conceiving natural law, Aquinas bases his argument on a law by the Byzantine emperor, Justinian, who wasn’t very intelligent and believed gay people caused “famines and pestilences”.
In the next class, she changed the format of the class. She did not allow discussions and showed a video the whole class (link). The video insinuates that homosexuality is basically a choice or something caused by abuse and “unhealthy relationships”. Furthermore, during class she’s spouted off standard, conservative bull-sh*t arguments like the “sanctity of marriage”, “gay = aids”, “gay relationships are unhealthy”, “kids need a mom and a dad”, “Gay men are much more likely to be pedophiles”, etc.
For instance, in class, when we were talking about “gay = pedophilia”, i said that there was no evidence nor science to back the claim up, but rather much to discredit such a laughable theory. Furthermore, I went on to say that the only people who have higher rates of pedophilia are priests who molest little boys. Her response was, “is that a fact? or is that just something the media wants you to believe.” She went on to totally deny that priests had ever molested children.
He later commented on his paper that http://bit.ly/2rWvme0
I've received many questions or comments on how a teacher would "never assign that" or that I choose this topic, here's what happened: In class we were told to choose 3 topics that we were either interested in or passionate about and that we would be writing a paper on their relationship with the church, as well as the morality of that issue. So, of course, I choose gay marriage as one of them (I think the others were "Justified War" and Nuclear Armament). We were then given a few days to come up with a thesis for our paper. If I remember correctly, mine was along the lines of "If Jesus were alive today, he'd be a supporter of gay marriage".
In the next class, I was then informed that I had to write in support of the view of the church. Furthermore, this was also the class where she said we had to prove and support the Church's teachings. It's not that I'm incapable of writing something I don't agree with, it's just that, in this case, that was not the right choice, for a number of reasons: - I just recently came out and thought this would be a great way to display to kids how homosexuality is nothing to take issue with. - After her comments in class, there was no way I could stand to write that paper. - I knew writing something like this would impress my grandfather, who is a devout catholic and spent 7 years in the seminary, and, just maybe, would offer some information that helped him understand me. - I just wanted people to have a resource where they could find information on why it's okay to be catholic and pro-gay, to, hopefully, spread a little bit of love and enlightenment.
So you know what AverageSmurf? You’re right, your teachers are dumb as bricks, and you are our BAMF of the week!

Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know that the ancient Roman cult of Mithras left no written records? Much of what we know about the (male-only) cult is through excavated artifacts. One of the best collections was discovered under a construction site in London in 1954. (Considering how they also found the skeleton of King Richard III under a parking lot, London needs to stop losing important shit.)

Headlines

Folk Cure Ills - http://bit.ly/2rxcQZz
  • Last month in the city of Guangzhou, China, a man with the surname Liu was suffering from what must have been a particularly bad case of constipation. Instead of laxatives or even natural dietary remedies, this 49-year-old turned to a “folk remedy” he had heard about: inserting a live eel into his anus.
  • One might say that this traditional remedy worked all too well because the frightened creature tore right through the man’s intestines and began swimming around his midsection. This was all unbeknownst to Mr. Liu at the time and on the outside resulted in swelling around his midsection for which he went to the hospital. However, he strangely refrained from telling them about the home remedy he attempted earlier.
  • So, of course, it came as quite a shock when doctors found a hole in his duodenum and the half-meter-long fish that caused it. After that initial wave of horror passed, they told Mr. Liu that he would need emergency surgery to remove the creature. Time was of the essence for if the fish had broken through the man’s stomach, his life would have been in serious jeopardy.
  • Mr. Liu continued to play coy with hospital staff saying that the eel had gotten in there, “by accident.” Luckily, they could extract the eel (which by that time had died) and save Mr. Liu. Only then, did he finally come clean and tell them about the treatment.
  • It was an awful lot of trouble to go through to ease a case of constipation.
 
Scientology Rehab Center… - http://bit.ly/2rxxDw1
  • A rehab center in the hills of rural Cannon County Tenn. has been shut down after a 911 call led investigators to a locked facility.
  • The facility was called Life Center for a New Tomorrow
  • deputies said they found someone who said he was being mistreated, falsely imprisoned and treated through Scientology.
“The workers there, the manager and other staff were Scientologists, there was a great deal of Scientology paraphernalia found throughout the facilities,” said Trevor Lynch, Assistant District Attorney.
  • Deputies found two patients there, one of whom had a mental illness, the other was being treated for substance abuse. “This facility was not capable for caring for the individuals it was taking in,” Lynch said.
  • Three people were eventually arrested. Dennis Flamond and Hans Lytle were charged with false imprisonment, and another man, Marc Vallieres was charged with facilitation of kidnapping.

Jenn’s Story: I Give Up, Here’s a Story About Genitals
Let’s talk science. And sex. And sexy science. Most people have heard that dolphins are one of the few other species who have sex for pleasure, but there’s actually a whole lot of other freaky going on. Whales and dolphins have surprisingly interesting sex lives, replete with various positions, elaborate vaginas, and a rare type of penis that’s always mostly erect. 
Dara Orbach (a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia and research associate at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts) has spent the past seven years of her professional career studying dolphin vaginas. Patricia Brennan and Diane Kelly are two women who have studied dolphin penises. These three women have joined forces in an attempt to crack the code on how dolphins do it.
Why the questioning? Per Science Alert:
“For starters, dolphin sex takes place under trying circumstances. The animals must properly connect despite ocean currents, and salty seawater, which is lethal to cetacean sperm, must be kept out of the uterus. What’s more, dolphins, porpoises and whales have vaginas with extremely unusual twists, folds, and recesses that sperm must traverse to make a baby.”
So how do 3 science ladies go about understanding the...um...ins and outs of underwater copulation? I’m glad you asked! It involves dead bodies and beer keg pumps! Orbach collected reproductive tracts from dozens of dolphins and porpoises who had died of natural causes. 
Side note: My favorite quote “Surprisingly, it’s not a very popular field to look at dolphin genitalia,” Orbach said.
From ScienceMag.org
“Kelly, who has also studied alligator and armadillo penises, came up with the idea of inflating the male organs, which are also twisty. The team did so with a pressurized pump — one more like a beer keg than the kind used to inflate bike tires — and then fit those into the matching vaginas.”
Now, what could be biologically advantageous to make successful intercourse so difficult? Females even have a way to twist their bodies to make sure the attempt fails. (Dirty cetacean teases.)
“Because they have lot of suitors, and reproduction is time-consuming.
At the height of their fertility, female cetaceans mate as many as 15 times in 15 minutes with two or three males, Orbach said. Pregnancy lasts 11 months, and calves are nursed for two years."It's a very substantial investment of a female's life in her developing fetus and calf as well," she said. "So from a female's perspective, she wants some way to control who's going to be the father."
This information could help conservation biologists study how endangered species need to reproduce in captivity and is also just a fun fact to pull out at cocktail parties where you don’t know anyone but want to test the crowd.

Submitted By Listener Bill: Legally Blind 4th-Grader Gets Gift Of Sight For His Birthday https://yhoo.it/2qYxFAj
 
A legally blind fourth-grader in Tennessee got the birthday gift of a lifetime recently when his school surprised him with glasses giving him perfect vision.
On Friday, Lanier Elementary in Maryville presented Andrew Borden, 10, with eSight3 eyewear.
"These glasses brought me from a faraway distance of 2,200 to 20/20," Andrew told ABC affiliate WATE-TV recently. "This would make things a whole lot easier, from reading to just playing games in class, on the computers.
The eSight3 eyewear came with a visor, equipped with two cameras, that goes over Andrew's regular glasses as well as a hand controller and a dial that lets him zoom in and out. The visor also has a light and a freeze-frame option.
Andrew has ocular albinism, which affects his hair, skin and eyes.
The glasses cost $10,000.
Renee Powell, a teacher at the school, told WATE-TV that the school had helped put together a fundraising site on GoFundMe after learning that Andrew's parents could not afford the glasses.
"We knew as a community we could do it because we have a small community but we have big hearts and we love our community members," Powell said. "Andrew is one of the most special, little guys I've ever worked with. ... It's just a dream come true for everyone here in our community."

Correction from Recovering Catholic’s iTunes review.
We weren’t sure if he meant ‘herd’ or ‘head’ that he was feeding (‘cause White Rabbit is a great song), so he was nice enough to clarify
“Hello, there wrathful studios. This is recovering catholic from the latest iTunes review. Just wanted to let y'all know that I did mean heard. Although it is small we have 3 horses and 3 goats on the property. After a long week, it is truly a pleasure listening while feeding them dinner Friday nights. Just wanted to clear up. Love the show and thanks for what y'all do.”

In this week’s show, alt-right Superman psychically shaved Brainiacs pussy for suing Wonder Girl.
Now, grab a beer and help us test the god hypothesis — because, while Hippolyta, Wonder Woman’s demigod momma, hasn’t struck us down yet, we are trying their patience!

Shea vs. Nude Cats - http://bit.ly/2p3aW5s
In a bizarre case that so far has police and residents stumped, at least seven cats in Waynesboro’s Tree Streets (VA) neighborhood have been shaved since December without their owners’ permission.
None of the pet owners have seen the person or people shaving the cats, and no witnesses have come forward yet.
cats owned by two separate Tree Streets residents have been shaved in the underbelly, groin and leg areas. He said it appears the shaving was done with a razor of some kind. The cats were not otherwise harmed
“Collectively, this involves seven cats that are indoor and outdoor cats,” the Police Chief said.
Superman vs the KKK - http://bit.ly/2qmb7bI
After WWII had ended, The Klu Klux Klan began to grow and became more violent. This didn't sit well with activist, Stetson Kennedy who vowed to take the giant on. Stetson went undercover and actually joined the Klan in order to learn all their secrets and tactics.
After collecting all this information, he quickly realized the police would not help him in taking the Klan down. Looking for a way to publicly expose the klan, he turned to a popular radio show centered around Superman.
He had hoped the radio show would develop a story in which Superman battles the Klan while simultaneously exposing all of their real-life secrets and lingo.
The radio show agreed to the story and developed a 16-part series titled, "Clan of The Fiery Cross." The radio show subsequently harmed the Klan and their recruitment efforts.
According to Deadline, Rick Bowers’ young adult novel – Superman Versus The Ku Klux Klan: The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate – is being produced by Lotus Entertainment and PaperChase Films.
Producer Marc Rosen says:
“Fighting the forces of evil with brain over brawn, artists taking down bullies and the power of a good piece of content, it’s a real case of truth being cooler than. We’re excited to develop the thriller elements of the film in the vein of The Departed and Mississippi Burning.”

This Week’s Stories

Steve - Alt-Right goons - http://bit.ly/2p3cqg7
I caught a story in Salon today that merits a brief discussion. Called “Alt-right hopes to organize street-fighting goon squad: Is it more than macho posturing?”, Right off the bat, I had a couple of issues before even getting into the meat of the story itself. First of all, I despise the term alt-right. It is a word they appropriated by Richard Spencer (well-known pig-fucker) because neo-nazi sounds too harsh. They are at the very least white supremacists, but also tend to hate many of the “other” such as Jews, gays, immigrants. That sounds pretty neo-nazi to me.
Anyway, once I got into the story I found it is about groups of haters who feel it is their duty to form into gangs to protect another nazi’s in public from the dangerous lefties, who are apparently well known for starting fights and scaring the poor conservatives as they go about their constitutionally protected free speechifying, though reported incidences of this happening are exceedingly rare. They are just spoiling for a fight.
One group, called Fraternal Order of Alt-Knights (or FOAK), was started by Kyle Chapman, who in march dressed up as one of the batman impersonators from The Dark Knight, then beat up a fucking lefty protester near UC Berkeley. He was then was arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed dirk or dagger, assault with a taser, and assault with pepper spray, and has now become a neo-nazi poster boy hero. He says the group is, “dedicated to “defense and confrontation” in the streets.”
Then just a few days later, another group, the Proud Boys Network, was co-founded by professional dick-head Gavin McInnes who is a member of the right-wing website The Rebel Media, and who recently showed up in a video where he was attempting an elaborate apology for Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism. McInnes calls for “strong minded men who are comfortable with fisticuffs” to join.
I don’t think it’s too hard to see where I’m going with this. If one has spent any time studying history, then there is a really obvious parallel between these fuckers (as well as with groups like the southern border vigilantes) and the brownshirts who’s terror tactics and brutality fueled the rise of the original Nazi party.
A major difference here is that the little orange micro-penis is not Hitler. He’s not smart and he’s shit at politics so there seems to be little chance of him destroying our institutions the same way the third Reich destroyed the Weimar republic. Another huge difference is access to information, which today is literally light speed ahead of where it was in the early 1900’s.
The Salon article ended with a couple of examples of fighting these fuckers with mockery rather than fighting them and acting as they think we are. Instead, do as in Olympia, Washington in 2005 and show up dressed as clowns and mock goose-stepping soldiers, or just do as in 1993 in Austin, TX and just moon the assholes in mass.

Rick Wiles: ‘They’re Building A Global Brain That Will Embody Lucifer’s Mind’ - http://bit.ly/2pDglNH
Alarmed by reports that a computer program has “learned” to play Texas Hold ‘Em so efficiently that it can now defeat professional poker players, Rick Wiles lost his fucking mind on ‘Trunews” a radio program he runs that’s so full of bullshit they didn’t even bother spelling “true” correctly
Because Texas Hold ‘Em involves bluffing, Wiles is convinced that computers are now learning how to lie—and since Satan is “the father of all lies,” it stands to reason that we will soon have “demon-possessed artificially intelligent robots” controlling the world.
“If you have a machine that is capable of lying, then it has to be connected to Lucifer,” he said. “Now we’re back to the global brain. This is where they’re going. They’re building a global brain that will embody Lucifer’s mind and so Lucifer will be deceiving people through the global brain.”
Also, because he’s fucking insane, demon-possessed robots will soon start replacing human workers. Which will, apparently, not result in a utopian future of leisure but one where the “deep State’ whatever the fuck that is, will just murder the dicks off of the unemployed of otherwise unneeded people.
“I’m going to tell you where I think this is going,” he said. “I think the deep state planners have already figured this out and they have scheduled a massive war to eliminate tens of millions, perhaps hundreds of millions, of useless eaters. I really believe that.”
Which is why you’re fucking insane Rick.
 
Patreon Story - Immortally Stupid
Psychic Tries To Prove His Immortality … Doesn’t See It Coming… http://bit.ly/2pCYYww
Theprit Palee, 25, had been performing the traditional spirit dance in front of spectators in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand
The folk ritual is believed to honor the ghosts of ancestors
It’s done by stabbing yourself with a sword
Now, the trick here is, as he did in other shows, the blade of the sword broke when it was pressed against his chest - because it’s fucking fake
But on this occasion, the act went wrong and the weapon failed to snap causing the 25-year-old to stab himself in the chest.
According to Noom Udorn, Mr. Palee had provided readings for several years to local people. Readings that apparently never included “hey, don’t fucking stab yourself with a sword stupid”
‘This is a tradition that happens every year. The sword normally breaks but this time it went inside him,’ he said.
 
‘The medium has been respected for many years. People love him. He is one of people’s favorites.’
The police were called and they tried to save him. But when you have a sword in your fucking heart that’s pretty much it. He died at the hospital, presumably to the sounds of nurses and doctors scratching their heads — after all, he should have seen the sword-robe malfunction coming right?

Wyoming Men Wear Tutus In Protest Of Senator’s Victim-Blaming Comments - http://bit.ly/2qlwLNx

Supporters of LGBTQ equality wore tutus across Wyoming Friday to protest Sen. Mike Enzi’s comment that men who wear tutus into bars are asking to be assaulted.

“Honestly, this is what we do in Wyoming. Straight men all over the state are going to be joining their LGBTQ siblings and wearing tutu’s, buying their queer friends drinks and having a great time,” Equality Wyoming’s Sara Burlingame wrote. “It is a great time to be in the Equality State where we talk out differences and show up for each other — with or without tutus.”

For Wyomingites, Enzi’s anecdote wasn’t random. It instantly called to mind Wyoming resident Sissy Goodwin, a retired professor and well-known cross-dresser whose story has been featured by media outlets like NBC and The Washington Post.

Goodwin donned a bright green and yellow petticoat when he joined participants in a statewide protest dubbed #LiveAndLetTutu, after the state’s “live and let live” culture.

A number of bars here in little Laramie Wyoming participate too (well, most I think) and donated the proceeds of tutu-shots to WyoAIDS.org - the charity that Big Gay Jim runs and has mentioned on-air before.
