Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

A Morsel of Megan

I feel as if I'm poaching on Fire Megan McArdle's territory, but you have to point out giggles when you find them.

Megan tells us she doesn't think like a mathematician so she can tell us she solved her Rubik's Cube in/after grammar school "by extremely long trial and error." Thanks, Megan. I couldn't have gone through my day without another Megan!Fact. I guess writing about the relationship between economics and mathematics would just be boring and the little people don't want to hear about it.

Hey, here's an article on Bloomberg that addresses the collapsing economy. It seems the "Bank of America Corp., the second- largest U.S. bank, said profit dropped for a third straight quarter as the company set aside $6.01 billion for bad loans. "

Maybe Megan will mention it so she can say she doesn't understand why people don't pay off their loans because she pays off her loans every time.

Update: BINGO! Megan shows why she'll always be American's Sweetheart, plucky and predictable.

That depends on whether you want to walk away, stiff the bank, and end up
with a 150 point drop in your credit score that will severely impact your
ability to get a new house, or walk away even. Me, I borrowed the money, I try
to pay the money.

Megan, you'll always be Veruca Salt to me.

Pffft. You just want in the boys' club, and it's not gonna happen, no matter how much you betray your gender.
Boys have a penis and girls have a vagina.

True, but Ann, Megan, Michelle and many others have taught me that if you sell out and betray your group, you will be accepted by people who ordinarily wouldn't give you the time of day!

Wouldn't you do it to get those fat wingnut foundation checks and a "Heh, indeed"?

I'm only in it for the money. I want no "Heh, indeed," whatsoever.

Well, except that Ann and Michelle would end up expelled from the country for being transgendered and not a Conception American*, and Megan would be in a camp for unmarried non-mothers in the perfect world they're trying to enable. And you'd end up a communal wife, obliged to let Rush Limbaugh into your bed, lest his self-esteem be damaged (since liberals are actually misogynists).

*- In the United Theocracy of America citizenship remains a birthright, but for legal purposes birth is defined as 15 minutes after your parents got busy, thus making abortion murder and anchor babies a thing of the past. Children conceived by non-Americans on American soil are forcibly taken from the parents and raised by the military as permanent soldiers. Children conceived by genuine Americans on foreign soil are considered Americans after testing their genetic material against their parents'.

Rush is riddled with fault lines a mile wide. He's driven by compulsion and held together with paper clips.

I would crack him like a coconut.

I solved my Rubik's Cube in about fifteen minutes, armed with only a screwdriver.
