No beer review yet again this week. Bob and I are making some tweaks to the labels at the bottom of each review. Soon, by clicking the Beer Review button, you will be able to view all the beer reviews on this site by either their layman's terms (dark, light, bitter, sweet, etc) or by their actual "official" designation through the Beer Judge Certification Program (Bock: Doppelbock; Light Hybrid: Kolsch; etc.). This is taking a lot of time to sort through, so bear with us.

A couple random notes:

First of all, in the true spirit of the Dark Side, Darth Vader was caught on camera recently robbing a bank. Good to know the Dark Lord of the Sith likes it keep it real.

We all know and hate the Westboro Baptist Church (note: if you Google their web site and click their official home page link, Google tells you the link is broken...heh...). These are the idiots who protest things like Marines' funerals with their "God Hates Fags" and "God Hate America" signs.

Well, it turns out they decided to protest Comic-Con in San Diego. They were met by the most immense counter-protest of Nerdly Power ever witnessed. It was a thing of beauty. A small collection of Fred Phelps' family members and incest victims on one side of the street, a line of 3 or 4 cops with huge face-splitting grins, and a few hundred nerds with signs that read "God Hates Kittens," "God Hates Jedi" (wielded by a guy in a Star Trek costume) and "All Glory to the Hypno-Toad."

Go here to witness the Power of Dorks. Nerd Power!!

I always thought there were only two ways to deal with freaks like Westburo, the Klan, etc. Either you ignore them, or you kill them.* I think the nerds have found a third way!

Best chant:


Best quote form the comments section:

"It's funny, they aren't that different at all.. 1 group spends all their time reading fictitious material in which it's characters are made out to be superheros with special powers, and the other group reads comic books."

Best Sign:
"God Hates Jedi" has go to be the best sign especially since the guy has on a Star Trek uniform.

I have never had a laugh about a WBC protest. Awesome stuff.

*ATK does not endorse killing anyone with the possible exception of Osama Bin Laden.

BTW - some of the beer reviews can alreayd be sorted by type. Check it out and let us know what you think! If you find a bad link, please let us know.

My fav sign was the one about Magnets.... how do they work?

And I am proud to have scooped the formidable and nearly all knowing ATK news dept with this story:

MIT - I like that sign too

As far as your link...that is really screwed up. At least the beer pours out of the mouth of the squirrel. I suppose you don't get UV damage to the beer.

Yikes! This might deserve a full post.

This is perfect nerd stuff. We dorks (well, *this* dork joined the Marines, so violence is kinda sometimes my thing but I guess I'm the exception that proves the rule) deal with our enemies not through violent means, but through eviscerating snark. We make fun of people who are clearly dumber than us but trying to intimidate us. SO secure are we in embracing our nerdlihood that we don't care about your silly protest; you are foolish and we are funny.

I always thought that it was best to either ignore them or mock them in a clever way. From what I can tell, many of them would like to provoke some kind of angry reaction. If lawmakers pass laws against them, they can sue on free speech grounds. They will win and, in some cases, have also gotten monetary damages. If they are physically attacked, they can sue for battery and also will likely win.

Mocking them for the buffoons that they are is the best way. Those dorks rule!
