And it is..................................

The penis.

Yep, according to a pair of researchers, the penis is the cause of global warming.

Or not.

Actually, all they really did prove is that peer-reviewed journals are shite.

Now, a pair of enterprising hoaxers has proved it scientifically by persuading an academic journal to peer-review and publish their paper claiming that the penis is not really a male genital organ but a social construct.

The paper, published by Cogent Social Sciences – “a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences” – also claims that penises are responsible for causing climate change.

The two hoaxers are Peter Boghossian, a full-time faculty member in the Philosophy department at Portland State University, and James Lindsay, who has a doctorate in math and a background in physics.

We intended to test the hypothesis that flattery of the academic Left’s moral architecture in general, and of the moral orthodoxy in gender studies in particular, is the overwhelming determiner of publication in an academic journal in the field. That is, we sought to demonstrate that a desire for a certain moral view of the world to be validated could overcome the critical assessment required for legitimate scholarship. Particularly, we suspected that gender studies is crippled academically by an overriding almost-religious belief that maleness is the root of all evil. On the evidence, our suspicion was justified.

We didn’t try to make the paper coherent; instead, we stuffed it full of jargon (like “discursive” and “isomorphism”), nonsense (like arguing that hypermasculine men are both inside and outside of certain discourses at the same time), red-flag phrases (like “pre-post-patriarchal society”), lewd references to slang terms for the penis, insulting phrasing regarding men (including referring to some men who choose not to have children as being “unable to coerce a mate”), and allusions to rape (we stated that “manspreading,” a complaint levied against men for sitting with their legs spread wide, is “akin to raping the empty space around him”). After completing the paper, we read it carefully to ensure it didn’t say anything meaningful, and as neither one of us could determine what it is actually about, we deemed it a success.

    Cogent Social Sciences eventually accepted “The Conceptual Penis as a Social Construct.” The reviewers were amazingly encouraging, giving us very high marks in nearly every category. For example, one reviewer graded our thesis statement “sound” and praised it thusly, “It capturs [sic] the issue of hypermasculinity through a multi-dimensional and nonlinear process” (which we take to mean that it wanders aimlessly through many layers of jargon and nonsense). The other reviewer marked the thesis, along with the entire paper, “outstanding” in every applicable category.

    They didn’t accept the paper outright, however. Cogent Social Sciences’ Reviewer #2 offered us a few relatively easy fixes to make our paper “better.” We effortlessly completed them in about two hours, putting in a little more nonsense about “manspreading” (which we alleged to be a cause of climate change) and “dick-measuring contests.”

Now, the good part.................!

Destructive, unsustainable hegemonically male approaches to pressing environmental policy and action are the predictable results of a raping of nature by a male-dominated mindset. This mindset is best captured by recognizing the role of [sic] the conceptual penis holds over masculine psychology. When it is applied to our natural environment, especially virgin environments that can be cheaply despoiled for their material resources and left dilapidated and diminished when our patriarchal approaches to economic gain have stolen their inherent worth, the extrapolation of the rape culture inherent in the conceptual penis becomes clear.

Or, this latest generation are all perpetual losers.................................

Is this the worst first date in the galaxy? Austin man, 37, sues his date for $17.31 because she was texting while they watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

    Brandon Vezmar, 37, from Austin, Texas, sued his date last Thursday for $17.31
    He says his reasoning for the claim is because she was texting during Guardians of the Galaxy - and the amount he's suing for is the price of a movie ticket
    Vezmar said his date's texting was a 'direct violation' of the policy at the theater and that his experience was 'adversely' affected by it
    'Oh my God. This is crazy,' said his date, who asked that she not be named

Healed head bad.

A man covered in blood reportedly walked into an Oregon grocery store on Sunday while carrying a knife in one hand — and a woman’s severed head in the other.

Launch the head.....................launch the head!

Imagine hitting a shot so poorly that it ricochets not only off of one teammate, but two. That’s what Christian Atsu managed to pull off. The shanked volley nicks off of Daryl Murphy before finding Mohamed Diamé’s plant foot. The wayward attempt then balloons up and over the powerless Brighton & Hove Albion defense to knot things up 1-1.

Roads have been closed, flights have been cancelled and trains won’t run until Northumbria Police track down the woman and confirm she is indeed a Geordie and not a Mackem.

Well, that explains everything!!!!!!!!
