Idiopinions get's re-"tooled"

For those of you have been faithful followers (all 3 of you) the last several months have been a bit rough on the Panel of Idiots...

We lost our Web Server and much of our content.
We stopped posting updates to the BLOG.
We moved from our lavish studio to a basement in our parents place.
We began to drink heavily...

But now, after regrouping and a bout of sobriety, we are almost ready to relaunch the Idiopinions Podcast and website...

To celebrate we will be posting several new updates to the BLOG as we countdown the launch of Idiopinions return.

Stay tuned for more.

Something completely Random

I was on today, when I looked at my task bar and saw the following:

Seems CNN is more then just world news...
News and ANAL... SWEET.

Dungeons and Dragons co-creator dies

Excerpt from CNN.COM

David Lance Arneson, who helped trigger the global phenomenon of role-playing games as co-inventor of "Dungeons & Dragons," has died at the age of 61.

A statement on the game's official Web site,, said Arneson died Tuesday evening "after waging one final battle against cancer."

Arneson "developed many of the fundamental ideas of role playing: that each player controls just one hero, that heroes gain power through adventures, and that personality is as important as combat prowess," the statement said.

The game's co-creator, Gary Gygax, died last year.

In 1974, Arneson and Gygax created "Dungeons & Dragons," which allowed players to assume roles in a magical world. They could be fighters or wizards, elves or dwarfs.

"As characters journey through various lands, they search for hidden treasures while battling menacing monsters with their own brains and brawn," a description on says.

Some games would last days or weeks -- or even longer. "Game campaigns are as limitless as the player's imaginations," says.

What began as a hand-assembled print run of 1,000 games quickly sold out. Young people all over the world started buying up the game. By 1982, sales broke the $20 million mark.

SIDE NOTE: In the battle against cancer, not even David's Cancer Slaying Knife, with a +6 against cancer could defeat the ever powerful natural 20 dealt by the deadly fiend.

SIDE SIDE NOTE: David already announced from heaven, he is rolling up a new character, an elf names Hizzerbogs.

People for the elaborate tribulations of assholes.

Or as I like to call it, “are these guys and girls fucking retarded or what?‘
OK, let me say I am not for terrible treatment of animals. I eat meat but I don’t run around with a shovel smashing cats…. Any more.

Anyway, I think PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) has finally lost their minds… Recently they asked the musical group, Pet Shop Boys, to change their name to the Rescue Shelter Boys to bring awareness to the poor conditions of animals held in pet shops…

This after the recently files a campaign to change the name of fish to “Sea Kittens” in the idea that people would not like to sink a hook into something called a Sea Kitten.

Seriously? Are these people for real? We are a society that could give a rats ass what something is called, or even if it is cute, as long as we can eat it or get it cheap…

I think people need to realize a few facts about animals…
1, they are food in most cases.
2, if not for animal testing we would not have many procedures and drugs that save HUMAN lives everyday.
3, If they are not willing to stand up for themselves, raise an army, and attack the human oppressors, FUCK THEM.

The Pet Shop Boys declined to change their name but posted the note on their website to bring “awareness” to the plight of the animals… and to PETA… in all their retarded monkey madness.

Side note: RATT will be changing their name to “Cuddly Rodents.” That is if they ever book another gig on Planet Earth.

Breaking Wind

The land speed record for a “sail” driven vehicle was broken recently by the Greenbird, a fiber composite vehicle that clocked at 125 MPH on the dry desert beds of Nevada.

The Greenbird, driven only by wind power is touted as part sail boat, part airplane, and part formula 1 car, and proves there is an effective method to harness wind power…

Assuming road lanes are 15 feet wide, there is a strong breeze, and you never drive with more than yourself and a coke can…

Side Note: Where the hell do you park this… One good breeze and it will end up 20 miles from your house.

Death of a salesman

In a recent one man show, Kirk Douglas (92) , takes stock of his life, career, his stroke… and more…

The show, a retrospective, covers such heartwarming topics like when he changed his name, the birth of his children, and his expansive film work.

Following the show I had an opportunity to talk to Mr. Douglas. Here is an excerpt of the article which will appear later this month in IDIOT magazine.

Idiot: So now that you have wrapped your show, what are your thoughts about the performance?

KD: Who are you?

Idiot: Having reflected on your life, if you could go back in time and change a single thing, what would it be?

KD: I don’t know, maybe not have a stroke… Then I would not have to make the show less than an hour to avoid shitting myself.

Idiot: What are your plans for the future?

KD: What time is it? 11:30PM? I am going to go have breakfast. Tomorrow, maybe die… We will have to wait and see.

Idiot: Thank you for your time Mr. Douglas.
