Mac and Charlie Die

And, Mr. Kelly, in your sworn statement to police, you claim that the prisoner told you that if you didn’t, and I quote, “jam a bunch of stuff into your butt,” he was going to “rape you so hard the room would stink.” (Mac and Charlie nod) And he was going to, quote, “eat your butt and his son’s butt in the stink until his stomach was full of … your butts.” Is this correct?

The Rape Tunnel

This isn’t actually a tunnel somewhere in NYC where a lot of women get raped, but rather a piece of art.

The artist plans to place himself in a room, the only entrance or exit being a 22 ft long plywood tunnel constructed by Whitehurst himself. Then he says that for the duration of the gallery’s opening (from 7:00 p.m. to midnight) he will rape anyone who travels through the tunnel into that room.

This isn’t his first time. The Rape Tunnel comes after The Punch-You-In-The-Face Tunnel. I kid you not:

As it turns out, I ended up breaking the nose of the third person to crawl through the tunnel, an aspiring model. She went to the hospital and eventually sued me. Her modeling career was put on hold. The civil case was long and drawn out and the matter still hasn’t been resolved. To this day she still has unpaid medical bills. The point of this long aside is that all this took place two years ago, and I’m still having an impact on this young lady’s life, something not many other artists could claim about their work.

For some reason, this seems completely ludicrous, but I can’t help chuckling about The Punch-You-In-The-Face Tunnel. The question is, will he rape someone? Does that person want to be raped? And is he going to be arrested for rape? Is anyone going to go through the tunnel, even if they know that they will be raped? All of these questions will be answered during the opening of the gallery.

Update: it’s fake. The whole interview was a work of fiction which was written by Victor Barrenechea.

Schrödinger’s Rapist

The above xkcd comic prompted this post by Kate Harding. The 600+ comments on that thread prompted a guest post on Kate’s blog coining the term Schrödinger’s Rapist. That post has got about 1,000 comments.

A cat, along with a flask containing a poison, is placed in a sealed box shielded against environmentally induced quantum decoherence. If an internal Geiger counter detects radiation, the flask is shattered, releasing the poison that kills the cat. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that after a while, the cat is simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when we look in the box, we see the cat either alive or dead, not a mixture of alive and dead.

Schrödinger’s cat isn’t a philosophical problem, but a thought experiment on quantum entanglement, since for the observer, the cat is simultaneously dead and alive. The term Schrödinger’s rapist applies to all men (or strangers) who approach women. These women consider all men as potential rapists, so-called Schrödinger’s rapists, men that are simultaneously rapists and are not rapists.

I was made aware of Kate’s site recently, I can’t remember the reason. The only reason why I came to this post was because of Belle de Jour’s post today.

Go ahead and THINK we look nice all you want. We do that too! This post is about what happens when you decide it’s a good idea to talk to that nice-looking woman.

Hollywood and Roman Polanksi

There’s a reason why Hollywood is coming out and trying to save Polanski. Just like Whoopi Goldberg said, it wasn’t rape-rape. That’s actually true. It wasn’t rape. He just raped and sodomized a 13-year old girl. He then fled the country to avoid prosecution. Justice is blind.
