'The Happiness of the Knife!'
Crackpot Mailbox: Jeremy Bentham and James Discuss Recent and Perennial Violence

'All we could think was why?' says family of Jacquelyn Smith, who will be buried Saturday


1:34 PM (5 hours ago)

“Thus speaketh the red judge: "Why did this criminal commit murder? He meant to rob." I tell you, however, that his soul wanted blood, not booty: he thirsted for the happiness of the knife!”

– Friedrich Nietzsche, “Thus Spake Zarathustra”.

Here you go James. Direct from Harm City. A sad and unfortunate example to sure. But one that should demonstrate to the rest of us why one should stay away from beggars, as well as why one should speak to such street people only from behind a rolled up window when one is seated in a motor vehicle. I guarantee you that if you do not roll down the window at their behest they first thing they will do is try to open the door, so they can ‘talk to you’, of course.

Anyway it seems like a good segue for you to reiterate your auto safety tips to inform new readers, not to mention to remind the rest of us to be on guard during the holiday shopping and party season.


The BPD has three priorities:

-Investigate itself

-Get guns off the street

-Make big drug busts

Mrs. Smith's case is not even in an active category.

You should never open, enter or exit a car with a fit man on foot within 5 paces.

Cars have evolved from a freedom tool to lock box. Please note that in all recent riots, including Baltimore, that police and government have sided with rioters blocking traffic against motorists who harm rioters attempting to escape the illegal roadblocks. Postmodern cities are designed and managed in such a way as to insure that many share Mrs. Smith's fate. They are death traps.

Leopard kills Indian Buddhist monk meditating in forest

Mixed Species Martial Arts update.

Looks like the monk’s karma caught up with him. He must have done something despicable in a past life. Like eating animal flesh (ugh), and thus his karma no doubt dictated that he be eaten in return. So there!

Of course, some thick-headed Westerners (the ones who don’t believe that Disney movies are a true to life portrayal of nature) would tend to believe, karma or no karma, that as a matter of simple logic mediating alone and unarmed in the midst of a forest full of large predatory animals that have developed little to no fear of Man is just too likely to end badly. So don’t do it!

The man was "meditating under a tree" in a protected tiger reserve in western India.

Jeremy, if the monk was a vegan you know he tasted sweet, right. I think vegansism should be encouraged so we have a tasty meet locker headed into the Hopocalypse.

Large gangs of out-of-control monkeys run wild in India's parliamentary estate

Mixed Species Martial Arts Update.

The Indian Government has a monkey(s) on its back. The Rhesus Macaques have grown tired of living a life of hardship in the woods. They have decided to take their rightful place living in the city among other, more privileged, primate denizens of the sub-continent. Even the Ministry of Defense cannot defend itself against this incursion.

The way the Indian ruling class/caste has chosen to deal with this monkey insurrection is most illuminating. Human beings are forbidden from using force to repel a monkey pack assault. Gods forbid that any human should strike a monkey! Anarcho-Tyranny is the result of such an ‘enlightened’ policy, as humans are restrained from retaliating against the relentless monkey shines in any effective way, but the monkeys can do they will.

Instead the government has elected to pit one tribe of monkeys against another in order to maintain its own power and control over the city. It is using large, black-faced monkeys to drive off the smaller, pink-faced monkeys. Sound familiar James?

Since the authorities have been enjoined by animal rights groups to not employ actual langur enforcers, they have resorted to hiring “very talented young men” who are able to mimic langur calls with sufficient authenticity to frighten off the macaques. But the scare doesn’t last long as the langurs never actually show. Thus the Macaque community’s contempt for human law enforcement grows daily. Exacerbated by the fact that many human citizens encourage the macaques to remain in the city by feeding them and making pets out of them. Furthermore, the government is spiking reports of the expanding monkey insurrection that is paralyzing the offices of power (nothing to see here folks …move along now). Again, does this all sound familiar?

Delhi is home to tens of thousands of mischievous macaques, and so far all efforts to move them on have failed

Jeremy, as a pink-faced monkey hunted to economic extinction by larger darker-faced monkeys, I'm feeling some empathy here.

I think what should be done, is monks who want to meditate should lead the Rhesus macaque in group therapy sessions.

In the meantime, I suggest that advocates for the Rhesus monkey should bring in members of Baltimore's Black Guerilla Family to develop a heroin franchise controlled by the gray langur, who will then graduate from simple assault on Rhesus monkeys to destabilizing human society.

Update. Well, now we know the rest of the story:

"Family staged woman's killing by alleged panhandler, police say Husband, stepdaughter of woman 'killed by panhandler' arrested"

Officials: Staged panhandler killing played on worst stereotypes of Baltimore, unwarranted fear of homeless

It turns out the incident wasn't random street crime, a 'botched robbery', after all, eh? Rather it was 'domestic violence' perpetrated by immediate family members. Premeditated murder. The suspects definitely erred by blaming the crime on the homeless though. That is 'punching down' against an oppressed and marginalized group according to our current PC societal sensibilities and therefore especially deserving of condemnation by all right thinkers. Fast forward to current events and one wonders if the suspects might gotten off scot-free if they had made a hate hoax of the murder and blamed it on MAGA cap wearing rednecks, ala Jussie Smollett. Goodness knows, that like Chiraq, Harm City is overrun with those sort of deplorable cretins.

An advantage of residing in Baltimore is the option of using the City itself as the fall guy in your caper!

Bob, I say "yes", and then leave the scene with a quickness. Don't sort out any legal niceities, just sort out the bum.
Bryce SharperDecember 15, 2018 6:47 PM UTC


I recommend liberal use of mace on panhandlers.
BobDecember 15, 2018 1:32 AM UTC

On foot, I get it that beggars/panhandlers shouldn't be allowed close enough to strike without shifting body weight. If a verbal command to stop or go away is ignored, is that carte blanche for a pre-emptive physical move against the approaching bum? Shoulder stop, skin kick? And sort out the legal niceties afterwards?

Will address as an article, Bob.

Rabid monkey is a po-faced statement of fact in India.
