Quotes of the Month

On Wednesday, I noted that the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams was being called out as a hack in comments on his own blog.

Today the fun continued as Jeromie was mocked in the comments at Reason Magazine:

MJGreen (6.8.13 @ 11:46PM): I’ve been working all day (it’s Saturday, damn it!), and I return to you with more idiocy: “If you live on the west coast of Canada or the United States, you’re pretty much already screwed at this point thanks to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011.” It gets a whole lot better.

Sevo (6.8.13 @ 11:48PM): “Jeromie Williams has rock solid experience in the social media world.” Well, that right there is, uh, well, uh,…

mad libertarian guy (6.9.13 @ 12:05AM): That’s a whole lot of derp. Goddamn you for goading me in.

darius404 (6.9.13 @ 12:38AM): The commenters are having none of it. The only highly rated comments are calling him on his bullshit, to which he either says nothing or responds with casual dismissal. There are plenty of vocal fools, but even more silent readers with the wisdom to see him for the scaremongerer he is.

General Butt Naked (6.9.13 @ 1:03AM): Oh man, is anyone taking this guy seriously? He seems like your run of the mill crank. Shit, he gets his data from WorldTruthTV which seems to primarily concern itself with illuminati conspiracy mongering. Imagine the pants that would be shat in if this guy knew how much radiation is given off by stone structures.

Agammamon (6.9.13 @ 6:57AM): No, that article starts off bad and just gets worse. 2 paragraphs in is an ad for an article about how plants won’t grow near wireless routers – never seemed to stop any plants I’ve seen. The whole basis for his article is a picture with some pretty colors and a lot of made up bullshit about how (in 2 years yet) there’s been a noticeable increase in radiation linked thyroid problems in newborns, oh and how the government is changing its allowable limits in products shipped from Japan.

1. Being able to detect radiation from Japan doesn’t mean that the radiation levels are even close to dangerous. We’re pretty damn good at detecting even the most infitesimal amount of radiation.

2. In only 2 years you’re not going to see an increase in radiation linked health problems unless you’ve got Chernobal ground zero levels of radioactivity reaching CA. And if that was happening then we wouldn’t need to monitor the birth wards – the Japanese would be dropping dead.

3. there’s no – you know what fuck it. If you believe this shit there’s nothing I can do for you son.

mad libertarian guy (6.9.13 @ 10:41AM): “there’s no – you know what fuck it. If you believe this shit there’s nothing I can do for you son.” This is the only appropriate response.
