#The Clone Song
By: Isaac Asimov
Tune: Home On The Range

Oh, give me a clone
Of my own flesh and bone
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And after it’s grown,
Then my own little clone
Will be of the opposite sex.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I’m alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

Oh, give me a clone,
Is my sorrowful moan,
A clone that is wholly my own.
And if she’s X-X,
And the feminine sex,
Oh, what fun we will have when we’re prone.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I’m alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

My heart’s not of stone,
As I’ve frequently shone
When alone with my own little X.
And after we’ve dined,
I am sure we will find
Better incest then Oedipus Rex.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I’m alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

Why should such sex vex,
Or disturb or perplex,
Or induce a disparaging tone?
After all, don’t you see,
Since we’re both of us me,
When we’re having sex, I’m alone.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I’m alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

And after I’m done
She will still have her fun,
For I’ll clone myself twice ere I die.
And this time without fail,
They’ll be both of them male,
And they’ll each ravage her by and by.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when I’m alone
With my own little clone
We will both think of nothing but sex.

From memory - there was one from Antinous for making a (satirical) sock puppet of his account. It was on a post about sock puppets.

Then I got one for ranting on the topic of sarkeesian. The official reason was “100 deleted posts needs to be honored somehow” and I’m still waiting for the badge to be awarded.

The next one… was on the topic of the fappening and how I stubbornly insist that looking at stolen nudes is entirely incomparable in morality to the theft and publishing of those images. When I received the ban I had not looked at them - I was talking strictly philosophically - but once I was suspended I decided I’d go look at them since I was already being told I was a jerk and why not do the thing that seems to annoy people so much? They were shit, by the way.

The latest one was for ‘shit posting’ (somehow I get the feeling that was not Falcor as he tends to be a little more eloquent, but who knows) and I was in fact shit posting in the thread about the 20 second UFC takedown moron and his egotistical reddit AMA. Why the fuck would I want to ask anything of a UFC fighter, let alone have that brain-damaged shit be posted on BB, especially considering the standard BB line on sport: meh. Seemed inconsistent to dismissively shit on the Olympics and World Cup as a seeming matter of editorial policy then turn around and post UFC crap so I responded first with a couple of lines of exclamation marks after my comment, and then when I received some meaningless moronic response I responded with many many lines of exclamation marks.

It’s inspired a thread of its own because I figured, again, I might as well do what I’ve been accused of and I find the concept of literal shit posting vaguely amusing.

Finally some unique recognition for my unique accomplishments! I don’t know why I bother with all this photoshop shit, when I could have all my production graphics in cookie form!

  1. the ‘contact me’ link in the OP doesn’t work.
  2. It’s not very de-identified when I can search for “As a white guy … it’s time to look out for our own again.” and find the exact page where that quote was made.

(Anonymisation is stupidly hard.)

  1. Updated so the mailto: link now works. Or, rather, the email: link was changed to a real protocol.

  2. That’s the ban-reason, so it’ll have to last. There’s nothing wrong per se with identifying those that have been banned – it was never SEKRIT NOWLEDGE. But I’d rather people have to work for their schadenfreude, if that’s what they’re after. I’m more interested in the textual variety.

Thanks!

Not everyone feels that way, though.

Of course not, but for me it is all about diversity. Any thought you can think, there are likely others who think something else entirely. This is what makes life interesting.

Never knew this existed. Surely ‘troll’ has been posted already, and I know dates aren’t supposed to be posted, but, 2288!? There’s no coming back from that.

“This user is suspended until September 16, 2288 8:43am.
Reason: “I’m a male white gamer and I NEVER harassed nor witnessed any harassment AT ALL.”-Troll”

I love the specificity of the date.

“NO! 43 seconds in the corner, no more no less”.

That gif is belly chuckling funny.

The "nooo… “, " yeeeesss…”, and “oh ffs” looks on their faces are amazing.

I think these long ban times are sort of poking fun with the Singularity as well. If we eventually do hit the singularity before maybe 2070 or so, it’s reasonable to expect some of us to live practically forever (as software, or cyborgs (not forever, but there’s a decent chance of living till all the stars burn out)).

From that standpoint, getting banned for a few hundred years isn’t that particularly long.
