New School: Plastic bubbles, 8 year old arrests, and woke math, by Simon Black

Simon Black’s weekly chronicle of the absurd, at sovereignman.com:

Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.

NASA to rename insensitive cosmic objects

You may think NASA’s mission is to take humanity to Mars and beyond.

But remember, we no longer live in a society which prioritizes actual advancement.

Far more important is making sure no one is offended.

So we may not make it to Mars, but at least the Innuit people will not be offended.

NASA announced that it will rename the “Eskimo Nebula” as well as the “Siamese Twins Galaxy” because they include racially insensitive terms, apparently rooted in colonialism.

But what about the constellation Orion– named after a Greek mythological hunter god who is alleged to have raped the Princess Merope.

Or the constellation Gemini– named after Green twins Castor and Pollus, who were part of that Argonaut band of capitalist swine who terrorized ancient civilizations in search of the Golden Fleece. . .

And isn’t the name Mars also offensive– because it celebrates the patriarchal, heteronormative violent God of War?

What about Jupiter– a notorious rapist who slept with his children?

In fact, every planet named after a Roman god should be considered offensive– Rome was the biggest colonizer of its day and routinely enslaved captives and lower class Romans.

Luckily the Visogoths held a ‘peaceful protest’ in Rome in the year 410 which resulted in much more equality– everyone was equally impoverished and defeated.

  1. The pictures of the children in Thailand made me want to scream. Now I know that most of the world has lost their grip on reality.

  2. The pictures of the children in Thailand reminded me of the scene in “V for Vendetta” where social undesirables abducted by the state were used for biological experiments.
