Bitter?

This is one of the bitterest things that I have ever read.  It would be very funny except for the kids involved.  I don’t know why everyone needs to live their lives like a Springer episode.  This guy is a father and a professional, and I don’t care how much of an ungrateful b—- his wife is, he should know better.

Baby, I can’t help it that I’m crazy, I was just born that way.

I have kept no secret of my general disdain of psychologists and the field of psychology in general.  Like a lot of people, I can say that I was a psych major for three semesters in college.  The throw-it-against-the-wall-and-see-if-it-sticks mentality of many psychologists and especially researchers in the field of psychology left me with a bad taste in my mouth.  Someday, when I have a lot more time to expound on this I will, but for now, suffice it to say that I believe, for the most part psychologist are people who attempt to find emotional solutions to spiritual problems.  Don’t get me wrong, I know there are seriously chemically imbalanced people in this world who need to be medicated or institutionalized even in some cases, but you have to go to psychiatrist (medical doctor) for this to happen.  Also, I believe that there are some people for whom common sense counseling and caring can have a real, positive effect, but unfortunately, most of the time psychologists are more worried about propping up a persons feelings whether they are helping the person or not, and extending their sessions which translates to money in the bank.  I’ve said it before, I’ll start taking psychologists more seriously when they are able to get their divorce rate down somewhere near the national average (the divorce rate for psychologists is around 70% while the national average is about 55%).

Researchers in the field of psychology are famous as empire builders.  They continually try to come up with new diagnoses in order to expand their authority, their business, and their ability to file claims for insurance on behalf of their clients.  Today, we are greeted with a study done by researchers in the field of psychology arguing that insanity or even ‘moderate mood swings’ may be the result of evolution as affected by the process of natural selection.  Make no mistake, while this looks like an interesting theory, it is really another power-grab by the psychology field.  If they can say that some, most or even all aspects of our personality are determined by genetics, then they will be able to greatly increase their sphere of influence, diagnoses and treatments.  Cha-ching. 

Sometimes I feel like these guys are driving me crazy, but wait, according to them I was just born that way. 

On a side note, I find it odd that all of this natural selection stuff has not been used by homosexual advocacy groups up to this point, but it’s pretty obvious that homosexuality and natural selection are logical enemies.

Do these people not get the Crocodile Hunter?

You would think that some things are just taken for granted.  I just assumed that one of those things was that you do not use adjectives such as ‘friendly’ to describe corcodiles.  Everyone knows that you “never smile at a crocodile.”  Obviously these people have never heard that before.

Who was that Masked Man?

Isn’t Batman great?  Wouldn’t it be cool to be like him?  Or, how about video games, wouldn’t it be great to have super powers, and use them to thwart crime?  We’ve all thought about it.  Heroes are something that we are trained from childhood to admire.  But the truth is that there are very few true heroes in the world.

Heroic is a superlative that is applied to all sorts of situation but in most cases it is just hyperbolae.  I have heard people refer to persons who give to charity as heroes or those who donate their time as heroes.  Honestly, there is nothing heroic about these actions.  They are definitely laudable and admirable, but not heroic.  The simple truth is that most people are never faced with a situation in which they can truly choose to be heroic.

Some people definitely are placed in situations where they have the opportunity to be heroic.  These are people who, when given the opportunity, rise to the occasion.  The perfect example of this is the World Trade Center disaster.  In this situation, lots of people took the opportunity to become heroes, and put themselves in harm’s way in the hope of saving other people.

Policemen, firemen, and paramedics are more likely to find themselves in situations where they can truly act heroically.  Soldiers, during a time of war, have even greater and more frequent opportunities to become heroes.  But, even these people have to be prepared when the opportunity to become a true hero arises.

These avenues are open for the person who has the desire to become a hero, but still there is no guarantee that a situation will arise where heroic actions are required.  This brings me to 20-year-old Tadeusz Tertkiewicz and 19-year-old Jesse Trojaniak.  These guys wanted to be heroes so they dressed up as ninjas (Really.  Wouldn’t a cape have been more appropriate?), armed themselves with knives, throwing stars, swords, nunchucks and a bow and arrows, put on some extra body armor, and went out looking for some drug dealers.

Luckily for the world, these two were apprehended by police before they could cause the mayhem that their plan (and I use this word loosely) would have inevitably have inspired.  They were charged with ‘weapons possession’ which is about the best thing that could have happened to them.  Almost every other possibility would have led to worse results.

Obviously these two are not very good a thinking logically or planning ahead.  What did they think was going to happen when they jumped out and challenged the drug dealers?  Mostly likely the drug dealers would have met their martial arts weapons with superior weapons of their own such as nine millimeter automatic pistols that fire 13 shots as fast as a person can pull the trigger.  Even if the drug dealers had surrendered immediately, the police would have these two with ‘assault with a deadly weapon(s).’  This is much worse than a mere weapons possession charge. 

Most likely the only way for them to have been effective against the drug dealers would have been for them to have a preemptive assault on their quarry.  In this case, these are only two successful possibilities, and both are bad: 1) that they simply beat the drug dealers into submission with their nunchucks, and 2) that they shoot them full of arrows before they can draw their guns.  The charges for these two crimes would have been ‘assault with a deadly weapon’ or ‘first degree premeditated murder,’ depending on the outcome of the assault.  In the end, my money would have been on the drug dealers, and their self-defense argument would have held up in any court.

I hope that if I ever have the opportunity to be a real hero that I take it.  I think I would try to save the drowning person, and would probably enter a house that was on fire if I knew there was someone in there.  But I realize in that in the case of non-violent crimes, it is the job of the police to deal with these.  And, to all kids out there: Keep your hero fantasies to the computer until you are ready to put out the effort and put your butt on the line as a peace officer, firemen, paramedic or soldier.

Top 100 Creepy People #11-20

 

Creepy Person #20- Roman Polanski-

Following in the footsteps of the Academy, I would like to present him with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award…for Creepiness.  Let’s see.  This guy cannot return to the U.S. because he is under indictment for drugging and raping a 13 year old girl, but as Hollywood has proven, Americans seem to be able to forgive anyone for anything, even if the do not even ask for forgiveness.

 

Creepy Person #19- Mike Nifong-

This story is still fresh in all our minds, but suffice it to say that this guy charged three guys with raping a young woman, and withheld exculpatory evidence even when he knew that they were not guilty in order to further his political career.  As far as I am concerned he (and Duke University) deserve whatever they get, and it probably cannot get bad enough for him to suit me.

 

Creepy Person #18- Jeff Smith

I’m sure that everyone has known a Jeff Smith in their lives.  I knew one in high school myself, but I am talking about the moderately famous Jeff Smith otherwise known as the Frugal Gourmet.  After two of his male assistants charged him with sexual harassment, several more young men who had worked for him charged him with sexual assault.

 

Creepy Person #17- Stephen King

Most of the people from here to the end of the list got there by actually doing something horrible or creepy.  This is not true for Stephen King.  He makes the list on looks and his creepy works of fiction that are his life’s work.  Read Thinner or Carrie tonight.  Yeah, he’s creepy.

 

Creepy Person #16- Mike Tyson-

He speaks so softly for a guy who will threaten to eat you children.  Here we have a guy who could actually kill most people with one punch, but he will still take the time to properly beat or even rape a woman.  Great guy.  He has demonstrated time and again that he has no control over his anger or his impulses and that is a truly frightening and creepy possibility when you look at the guy.  Here are a couple of his more memorable quotes:

“[He] called me a ‘rapist’ and a ‘recluse.’ I’m not a recluse.”

“Lennox Lewis, I’m coming for you man. My style is impetuous. My defense is impregnable, and I’m just ferocious. I want your heart. I want to eat his children. Praise be to Allah!”

“My main objective is to be professional but to kill him.”

“I want to rip out his heart and feed it to him [Lennox Lewis]. I want to kill people. I want to rip their stomachs out and eat their children.”

To Razor Ruddock: “You’re sweet. I’m going to make sure you kiss me good with those big lips. I’m gonna make you my girlfriend.”

About Tyrell Biggs: “He was screaming like my wife.”

There is much more here, and it’s all great and creepy.

 

Creepy Person #15- Kim Jong Il

This guy actually put the lessons learned from George Orwell into practice.  He has convinced his people that the rest of the world is evil, and that he is saving them from it while taking food that has been either donated by foreign countries to feed his starving people, or that he has blackmailed them out of, and selling it to fund his own excess.  He is single-handedly destabilizing the entire world by proliferating nuclear weapons to irresponsible nations such as Syria and Iran.  He has engineered the kidnappings of several South Korean actors and actresses to force them into making his own films.  I do not have time to attempt a list of the atrocities associated with his government.  And, just look at him.

 

 

I’m so, so sorry. 

 

Creepy Person #14- L Ron Hubbard-

So, this guy writes a paper about how to start up a religion, and then he does it.   I believe in God (the real one), so blasphemy always makes me uncomfortable, but this guy goes one step further by making his own religion, Scientology.  This is a very creepy, kooky, and subversive religion (see the Tom Cruise entry at #47 for more information on this).  He left this world with a very controlling and strange religion that he made-up and for that he scores pretty highly.

 

Creepy Person #13- Michael Jackson-

The look (including the vitiligo), how he is seen with his own children, and the fact that he built a theme park to serve as bait for his own pedophilic version of a reverse ‘Make a Wish Foundation.”  If you do not find this guy creepy, you need to put down that glass of Kool-Aid that you are drinking.

 

Creepy Person #12- Jack Elam-

He was the original ‘Crazy Eye.’  He starred in many Hollywood westerns over his 54 year career.  He looked pretty normal early in his career, but as the years went by his left eye began to attempt to wander off of his face.  His crazy look and longevity earned him high creepy marks.  Try highlighting the picture below of Jack.  It’s truly frightening.

  
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

Creepy Person #11- Jake Gyllenhaal-

Jake is a creepy looking guy, and he gets extra points for being in Brokeback Mountain (especially after Heath Ledge killed himself to wipe away the creepiness that this movie left in his life).  And, if you have not seen Donnie Darko, you haven’t truly seen creepy.  I recommend it, but you should be prepared to be creeped out.

Top 100 Creepy People #21-30

Creepy Person #30- Marty Feldman-

I’m sure he was nice guy in real life, but those eyes, those eyes!  Have you ever known a person with unnaturally buggy eyes?  It’s a creepy look.  Multiply that by a factor of seven, and you get Marty Feldman’s eyes.  Oh, then you add an unnatural ability to separately control them much like a chameleon, and there is only one word for it, creepy.

 

 

Creepy Person #29- Richard Fairbrass (the lead singer of Right Said Fred)-

If you do not remember this guy, just watch the video of the band’s one big hit “I’m Too Sexy.”  Oh yeah, it’s creepy.  Top that with the fact that he and the band have been rumored to have spent the last couple of years living on the yacht of a billionaire as his personal ‘boy toys.’

 

Creepy Person #28- Johnny Knoxville-

He brought the show Jackass to the world where among other things, he stapled his own scrotum.  Enough said.

 

Creepy Person #27- Gary Busey-

Gary Busey is just Nick Nolte multiplied by a factor of four.  Hard living and lots of drug use take a toll on a guys looks, but Busey is in another league than most guys.  He also looks dirty most of the time, and you can almost smell the B.O. from the mug shots.  It is rumored that he has even snorted cocaine off of his dog.  He has been accused of beating his wife on two occasions, and.  His most recent role in 2006 had him playing a Jewish-American Doctor who was harvesting organs from Muslims at Abu Ghraib in a Turkish film.  Recently he crashed an on-camera “E” interview with an obviously revolted Jennifer Garner, in which he kissed her without her permission.  Nice.

 

Creepy Person #26- David Duke-

Creepiness often leaves its taint wherever it goes, but it is not just your average creep who can single-handedly sully both a state and two national political parties with his creepiness.  Such, however, is the case with David Duke whose Wikipedia page describes him as, “a former Louisiana State Representative, a candidate in presidential primaries for the Democratic and Republican parties, and former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.”  What a resume!  He financed a campaign once by writing a creepy book as a woman called Finder Keepers.  The book gives women “advice on vaginal exercises, fellatio, anilingus, and anal sex.”  He founded several White Supremacist organization including the NAAWP (yes, It’s just what you think it would be).  In 2002, he pled guilty to mail fraud and filing a false tax return and was sentenced to 15 months in jail.  There is still a large file on him that includes allegations of illegal use of campaign funds and raising personal funds on false pretenses from his followers.  Perhaps this guy should have scored a little higher than this, but it seems the list just keeps getting worse.

 

Creepy Person #25- Dee Snyder-

If you do not agree with this one, look at the picture below and watch the movie Strangeland, then get back to me.

 

 

Creepy Person #24- Rob Zombie-

While Rob Zombie does not look quite as creepy as Dee, His movie, House of 1000 Corpses, makes Snyder’s movie, Strangeland, look like Mary Poppins.  I do not recommend watching this one to prove that I am right.  You should just trust me on this one.

 

Creepy Person #23- Marylin Manson-

What a trio we have between 25 and 23.  Manson gets the nod due to looks and his personal little tribute to one of the worst serial killers of all time.  I’d rather not even look at him.  You can Google him if you want.

 

Creepy Person #22- Henry Kissinger-

Kissinger has been accused of world atrocities and ordering the murder of foreign nationals. He was one step removed from the Watergate scandal, and somehow avoided getting swept up in all of the Nixon turmoil.  And, (this is where it gets a little more creepy) he likes women, specifically young women who may be decades younger than he is.  Nice, and creepy.

 

Creepy Person #21- Jack Kevorkian

His nickname is Dr. Death, and he has made a name for himself ‘assisting’ people with killing themselves (some would call that murder, but I digress).  He has been rumored to have a life-long fascination with the subject of death and even went to prison for his right to help kill people.  Check out his artwork sometime.  Here is a nice little painting entitled “Nearer My God to Thee.”  Oh, my!

Creepy Person #40- Juliette Lewis

She is creepy in the same way that Courtney love is, except that she looks much, much dirtier.  Yuck.

 

Creepy Person #39- Simcha Jacobovici

This guy is otherwise known as the Naked Archeologist, though he is neither naked (thank, God) or an archaeologist.  He is creepy because he puts forth the most outlandish theories, while simply ignoring the facts and generally accepted theories in archaeology.  His ideas are almost always sensational, and often offensive to certain religions.  He presents one side of the argument, and spends the rest of his time trying every way he can to sway the person watching him, while leaving out any views or facts contrary to his own no matter how valid or strong they are.  You can find some of his handy work in the generally panned production of The Jesus Tomb, but I encourage you not to listen to a thing this creepy bastard has to say.

 

Creepy Person #38- Pauly Shore

Hey Bu-ddy!  He’s pretty much the whole creepy package minus the evil part.  He is the kind of creepy that can ruin a good party the moment he walks in the door.

 

Creepy Person #37- Tonya Harding

Novels could be written about this creepy girl.  She proved you can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of the girl.  The dolled-up girl who went out on the ice was the same girl who had her truck-driver hubby try to break the leg of a fellow competitor, nice.  The next time America heard from her, she was doing the Paris Hilton thing, and not even getting paid for it.  The last time I saw her she was going to be fighting another celebrity on television.  Her life has been one big creepy train-wreck.

 

Creepy Person #36- Kathy Bates

She makes the list for scaring the sh— out of me.  He character, Annie Wilkes, in Misery, is one of the scariest characters to ever grace the screen.  After James Caan’s character hides the knife under the bed, and then wakes up to her obviously unhappy face, I literally jumped.  She definitely deserved the Oscar she received for this roll, and she is the highest rated actress to make this list simply for one roll.  Congratulations, Kathy!

 

Creepy Person #35- Michael Vick

Here the list begins to transition more from people who looked or acted creepy to more people who do creepy things.  What Michael Vick did to those dogs was not funny, but it was definitely creepy, and I wish him all the failure in the world for it.

 

Creepy Person #34- Lorena Bobbitt

In a masterful piece of cosmic irony this crazy woman married a man with the last name of Bobbitt.  Fewer things haunt the recesses of man’s mind like the specter of having a woman do to him what Lorena did to her husband.  And remember guys, she got away with it.  That gives every other woman license to do the same.  I can’t type too much more on this one, because it just makes me too darn nervous.

 

Creepy Person #33- Victor Vernado

Who’s he?  He is a guy who was born with a genetic advantage when it comes to playing the evil villain.  He’s albino.  As unfair and un-PC as it is, albinism is creepy.  Many of the creepiest villains in cinematic history were albinos, and do not get all judgmental, just imagine yourself in a darkened alley on a humid night alone.  You look up and see an albino looking at you.  You’ll feel the creepiness going right up your spine.

 

Creepy Person #32- Marv Albert

The toupee is enough, and may rate its own creepy rating, but he mainly makes it from the sexual assault charges.  It was a sordid and very creepy tale.

 

Creepy Person #31- Paul Ruebens-

The PeeWee Herman character was creepy enough, especially knowing that he geared his comedy toward children, but Reubens had to go and ruin his career in a most creepy manner.  If you don’t remember, he was busted in a porno theatre with his pants around his ankles loving himself as no other could.  And, if you’ve ever seen him without the PeeWee getup, you will see he is just one creepy looking guy.  Finally, having ‘Mr. Rooney’ from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off busted in his house for possessing little boy porn just put him over the creepy edge.
