2011- ZOMBIE HELL...
Jeez! Some of you guys are so determined to be “offended”. Some others too on MCN are so dense; one has to explain one’s self (in advance) to avoid the inevitable. e.g. if I hadn’t explained the Latin word “vale” – some germ would have accused me of being a smart-arse & obliquely dragging "Vale" Valentino Rossi into matters. The thinkers out there know this to be true but one has to always try and be “inclusive” – doesn’t one?
As it was, I was merely attempting to place events and feelings in some sort of “context “and perspective. Especially as it is so very obvious so many have no sense of the latter. It was always anticipated that some would either choose to or simply just not “get it”. The “usual suspects” indeed... pass any observation on their very evident inability to rationalise for themselves and they attempt to flog you with their misunderstanding of the entire point. Ah well - there you go, then. Here for your greater self-understanding is some more incredibly enlightening info on your sad “condition”...
While the non-Zombie is generally able to identify the causal relationship between its own behaviour and its results, every negative outcome that the Zombie has ever experienced is the result of an evil third party who is hell bent on making the Zombie suffer. This lack of personal accountability was incorporated into psychologist Julian Rotter’s Social Learning Theory in 1954.
Rotter expressed this idea as the locus of control: an individual with an internal locus of control takes responsibility for his or her life, and acts accordingly; an individual with an external locus of control floats along, shirking and blaming all the while.
This was put very well and very accurately even well before Rotter’s theory was published, way back in the 1940’s by H L Mencken:
“The central belief of every moron is that he is the victim of a mysterious conspiracy against his common rights and true deserts. He ascribes all his failure to get on in the world, all of his congenital incapacity and damn foolishness, to the machinations of werewolves assembled in Wall Street, or some other such den of infamy.”
I noted Chief Zombie, Main Moron and Regal Reality-Denier, RDB46 with his last pathetic, selfish & self-centred bleat that HE has had such a mingeing, mean, useless and non-productive 2011 season that he is leaving MCN and will not be posting ever again! Well – bugger me! EXACTLY as I have been predicting for 3 years now. Their mortal enemy, Casey Stoner wins the World Title and Rossi drops the ball & fails spectacularly for an entire season - and they are OFF – never to be seen or heard from again. So – go then, fuck-off and good riddance to this infantile & irritating flake and the entire raft of Zombie “pretend fans” anyway. Go on guys – be “offended” all over again – you know you want to be. Sincerely, your favourite whipping boy. Cheers
