LawDog Book Bomb underway!

Larry Correia is calling for a book bomb for new Castalia House offering The Lawdog Files:

As a small town Texas cop he used to post these funny true life stories, and they were hilarious. Seriously, the guy has a gift. Some of these stories have become internet legend, like the amorous armadillo, the pink gorilla suit, and the shootout with Santa.

After nearly two decades of us bugging him, Lawdog has finally written a book!

Sounds like a fun read!  If you want in on the run, you can do as I just did and click on the Amazon link and buy the kindle version for only $4.99.

The purpose of a BOOK BOMB is to get as many people as possible to buy the same book on the same day. That gets it to go up in the sales rankings on Amazon as much as possible. The higher it gets, the more eyes see it, the more new readers check it out. Success breeds success, and the most important thing is that the author GETS PAID. So please check it out, and if you like it, tell your friends and spread the word.

    I am confused. I always thought that in America if something bombed (say the Ghostbusters reboot) then it had done poorly which as it happens is the exact opposite of its meaning in England where to say something went like a bomb is to say that the thing whatever it was, was very successful. Apparently though, a book bomb is a good thing?

  5. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    The phrase “It’s The Bomb!” can mean that it was very good: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=the%20bomb

    But I think that phrase was more popular in the 1950s than today.

    “Bomb” is like the word “bad.” Bad can mean bad or it can mean good.

    Or it’s like Hot and Cool, both of which can mean good.

    I think in this case it is more like a WW II bombing raid, where a mass bombs are all dropped at the same time.

    Opus, the English language can be confusing, especially to foreigners.
    Think of a book-bomb run as an Instalanche, only different. Always glad to help you in these matters.

    “Opus, the English language can be confusing, especially to foreigners.”

    Especially American English.

    We don’t have lorries here. We have trucks.

    We don’t have water closets here. We have bathrooms (or if you’re a snooty upperclass person, a lavatory).

    In America, cars don’t have bonnets or boots. They have hoods and trunks.

    We don’t “ring” people. We call them. Or at least we used to, before the Era of The Text.

    We don’t watch the telly. We watch TV or television.

    We don’t have favourite programmes. We have favorite programs.

    Dr. Who is now a woman: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tv/2017/07/16/doctor-jodie-whittaker-replace-peter-capaldi-time-lord-regeneration/

    I’ve never seen a Dr. Who TV show or movie.

    I have read some fans say, “Hey, Dr. Who is a shape-shifting alien, so why can’t s/he be a woman?” But in the context of our current culture, I’m sure we all know that making Dr. Who into a woman is neither arbitrary nor innocent.

  10. Red Pill Latecomer says:

    Actress Jodie Whittaker on being the first female Dr. Who: “It feels completely overwhelming, as a feminist, as a woman, as an actor, as a human, as someone who wants to continually push themselves and challenge themselves, and not be boxed in by what you’re told you can and can’t be. It feels incredible.

    “I want to tell the fans not to be scared by my gender. Because this is a really exciting time, and Doctor Who represents everything that’s exciting about change. The fans have lived through so many changes, and this is only a new, different one, not a fearful one.”

    I see that our actresses talk as much drivel as yours – Thespians are always lost without a script.

    I saw (yes its true) the first episode of Doctor Who which was repeated a week later because your President had been shot dead. The Doctor may for fictional purposes be a Time Lord with various gadgets, two hearts, the wonderful Tardis and so on but in reality he is a pre-sexual-revolution middle-aged to elderly English male of great curiosiness and somewhat eccentric character, physically fit as well as mentally sharp, in fact the sort of person that used to and probably still exists such in the Upper Middle Classes such that when he befriends an attractive young female he is not trying to seduce her – the Tardis is certainly a safe space. The first two incumbents of the role Bill Hartnell and Patrick Troughton coming to my mind closest to the best portrayal of the character – Peter Cushing playing the Doctor as doddery rather missed the point. Young actors in the roll can only come across as repressed homosexuals. The Doctor’s above characteristics are entirely and only male characteristics. A female Doctor will be certain to be a ball-busting Feminist. Her male companion will be a friend-zoned Mangina and with her female companion she will form an anti-male clique.

    What the BBC is proposing is the equivalent of what Isis and the Taliban do to Budhist statuary.

  13. Gunner Q says:

    I’ll probably buy it but can’t from Amazon. Can’t buy anything from Amazon. They locked my account when the password was compromised years ago but the account didn’t unlock after I changed it (a hundred times even). Seems you need account access to complain about no account access and even when I complained using other peoples’ accounts, never got a reply. They probably replied to my account. World Wide WEB, totally.

    But maybe it’s for the best. I buy a lot less stuff online this way.

    “What the BBC is proposing is the equivalent of what Isis and the Taliban do to Budhist statuary.”

    Yes. Notice this is the exact opposite of Correia trying to help a new author get established. Therefore, Book Bomb and Boob Bomb are exact opposites in American English.

    Keep calm and carry on. Star Trek survived Captain Janeway. Oh wait, it didn’t.

    Disclaimer: I’ve seen perhaps 1.5 episodes of Dr. Who, ever. Therefore the finer points are lost upon me.

    This is just another case of feminist territory-marking. If the franchise survives, a doubtful prospect, the next iteration will no doubt feature a Doctor Who that is a wheel-chair bound lesbian of some skin tone other than “pale”. Because young white men, especially young white nerdy men, must not be allowed to have any sort of escapist fantasy that is not Big Sibling approved. That territory must be not just marked, but obliterated. In the name of cultural diversity or something like that.

    “All your science fiction belong to us”, in other words. Someone should send them up the bomb, to tie this back to the OP and poor Opus’s difficulties with proper English.

    With Season 7, Games of Thrones has gone full blown feminist: https://www.buzzfeed.com/jennaguillaume/protect-her-at-all-costs?utm_term=.srvweGpEp#.suy6l9xyx

    Jon Snow agrees that from now on, his army will train women and girl soldiers.

    The scene took place in Winterfell, with Jon declaring his intention to have women and girls fighting alongside boys and men in the war against the Night King.

    There’s even a little girl warrior ruler, Lyanna Mormont, who rides her horse, as if leading men into battle.

    Lyanna is the second little girl warrior in GOT, the first being Arya. But Lyanna ups the notch. Arya was fighting alone, whereas Lyanna is a leader of male soldiers.

    Feminists want women scientists to stop citing white men in their research: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jul/13/feminist-geographers-dont-cite-research-white-men/

    Two feminist geographers are encouraging their colleagues to be more mindful about citing the research of white males because doing so contributes to “the reproduction of white heteromasculinity of geographical thought and scholarship.”

    Writing in “Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography,” Carrie Mott and Daniel Cockayne argue that considering an author’s gender, race or sexuality prior to citation can be an effective “feminist and anti-racist technology of resistance that demonstrates engagement with those authors and voices we want to carry forward.”

    “GunnerQ, did you try creating a new account?”

    I’d have to create a new e-mail address for nothing but Amazon shopping and that was the point at which I lost interest in spending money. First-world problems here.

    Besides, Amazon is so large now that my anti-monopoly radar is twitching. Barnes & Noble has most of my book needs covered and I like the idea of keeping a competitor to Amazon in business. On a certain level, I don’t like how a book bomb at a specific retailer can make or break a new author. But them’s the rules.

    Not that I’m thrilled with B&N but at least in California, they’re the last physical bookstore chain standing. For when I want to browse-find a $20 scifi book with only a 90% chance of being pozzed. Well, there’s always the Fortean Times.

    @Red Pill Latecomer

    The Wildlings in the books already had female warriors called spearwives. I’m just finishing up the fourth book, Dance with Dragons, which is the last published, I believe. To this point, Jon Snow has not organized them, but you can definitely see it going that way. They have their own tower on The Wall at this point. Although it’s ostensibly to keep them from being raped and molested, you could certainly see a scenario where they’d have to defefnd it. It’s possible it wouldn’t go well for them, though, because Martin is a brutal realist.

    This Lyanna is a complete fabrication of the scriptwriters, however, it appears. If you check the wiki link, she’s only been barely mentioned so far in the published books.

    It’s not the gender we are ‘scared’ of…it’s that satanic ethos of feminism.

    OT: If you want to understand how our post-family life really works in the UK, this Spectator article will give you a good insight:

    https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2017/07/the-tax-trap-why-a-70k-family-isnt-much-wealthier-than-a-minimum-wage-family/

    Essentially the post-tax/benefit income of a two parent family with one earner in the highest tax bracket is nearly the same as that of a family earning not very much. This is because of the wondrous invention of Child Tax Credits (CTCs) combined with Housing Benefit. Despite their misleading name, CTCs are not tax credits, but state benefits paid to the head of any household with children where the income is low enough (then proportionately reduced as the income goes up). Housing Benefit pays the rent for those on low incomes. Now, the comparison used refers to a two-parent family with one of them earning minimum wage, but the situation would be unchanged if instead a single-parent family (whether the mother works or not, if she does the state will subsidise childcare too) was used. Outside London Housing Benefit is much less extreme as rents are not so high, but the analysis still holds true, as wages are also much lower on average.

    The idea is that the small fraction of productive people earning wages sufficiently to maintain a family – mostly, but not exclusively, men – will have huge chunks of their income to all those who don’t bother to form a stable family unit (and to those who engage in deceit). This makes it harder for men to signal provider status (for obvious reasons) and makes it less important/necessary that they do so, at least outside the top 10-15%. Meanwhile, this thinktankreckons we’ve lost 160K children from couples who couldn’t afford to have more but wanted to due to house prices (and tax).

    In the long run, it will all fall apart. But then, as Keynes wrote, in the long run we’re all dead.

  26. Oscar says:

    “Studies showing men prefer slim women are ‘triggering’, ‘dangerous’, ‘pointless’, ‘irresponsible’ and don’t ‘need to exist’, according to Allure magazine.”

    https://www.blazingcatfur.ca/2017/07/18/allure-mag-scientific-study-showing-men-prefer-slim-women-is-dangerous-shouldnt-exist/

    Apparently, women need to be protected from the truth. Just like children.

    My favourite is when I get asked for a smoke.Here someone will say “can I borrow a smoke”?…..in the UK they will say..”can I bum a fag”?…..My response was always..”ya sure….go bum one”. Also,here I would say..”deti..want to grab a beer”?…..in the UK,it would be..”care to tip a pint mate”?

  32. Novaseeker says:

    I was just told by someone on a dating site that I was hypocritical and sexist for preferring that even though I am not thin.

    Yep, that’s a pretty common viewpoint — the idea is you don’t deserve thin because you aren’t thin. Always based on the fallacious assumption that men and women are the same and are attracted in the same way.

  33. Original Laura says:

    It is perfectly rational to want the wife to be thin. Thin people are more attractive and often healthier. Besides that, if she is fat, she is going to fill the kitchen with foods that you don’t need to be eating, and you will gain even more weight. If, on the other hand, she is very weight conscious, she will shop and cook with that in mind and you may be able to lose some weight over time.

    If you know that you are “not so great” at managing money, or dealing with children, or cooking or gardening, etc., it is a real bonus to find a spouse who is strong in areas that you are not.

  34. earlthomas786 says:

    ‘I was just told by someone on a dating site that I was hypocritical and sexist for preferring that even though I am not thin.’

    Consider it a bullet dodged. When they call it ‘sexist’ that you wish a woman be a healthy weight…they are insane.

    Or fat. Or both.

  36. BillyS says:

    Very true Laura. I had been expecting my email wife to help make healthy things to eat. It is one of the reasons I thought it fine that she stayed home while I worked. She unfortunately never got the clue on that.

    I would love to find a woman who could help with that, though I am not going to hold my breath waiting for it.

    I suppose we could go aroind trolling women on the internet, telling them they don’t deserve rich/tall/funny etc. if they aren’t themselves rich/tall/funny etc.

    Let’s not forget that women usually gain weight during pregnancy as well. This means she’s likely to practically become a whale if she’s fat even before pregnancy.
