Imagineering the Border

You can keep your Aztlán; forget that passé North American Union. Here's the new plan: ¡SUPER NAFTA LAND!

  1. Preemptively shut the fuck up, LoneWacko.

  2. OMFG!!! Someone start passing out the tin foil hats! LoneWacko is gonna be off his fucking rocker when he sees this article!!! Preemptively STFU, LoneWacko!

  3. Damn you Xeones!!!

  4. That project imagines a kind of Mad Max salvage economy, made up of equal parts post-industrial subculture and bioengineered agri-futurism, set along the US/Mexico border.

    Just as I thought. Something else to scare the trailer park trash into hating brown people even more.

  5. I wonder if he hurt himself spewing that much multi-coloured jism on some paper

  6. I’m beginning to think they’ve got a pool going and Jesse needs him to post a few more times to win the bet. You guys aren’t helping!

  7. So not only are IllegalMexicans conspiring to take er jerbs, they’re gonna make everything look fucking retarded, too?

  8. Hey Naga — FACE.

  9. Xeones,

    You shut your dirty mouth! You’re cruising for a bruising!

    *shakes fist at Xeones*

  10. That project imagines a kind of Mad Max salvage economy, made up of equal parts post-industrial subculture and bioengineered agri-futurism,

    What’s so bad about that?

    Post-industrial? Sure. Economies evolve. Post-industrial is where economies go when they outgrow industrialism.

    Salvage? Sounds ecologically sound to me.

    Bioengineered agriculture? Nothing wrong with that.

  11. The chick in the gas mask is great. I like this. I want to live there. It’s kind of Borderpunk, if you know what I mean.

  12. Careful Epi. It looked suspiciously like a “Hogan’s Run” type society. You’re getting old dude.

  13. I just want the Mexes to come up and take over our towns and run them with caudillos like the one in the Wild Bunch and he can give us all hookers and tequila and we can watch him drag LoneWacko around the square behind his Rolls.

  14. Bring it, Naga. I AM THE LAW AND I AM THE LASH.

  15. It looked suspiciously like a “Hogan’s Run” type society.

    Aw, man. RC’z Law to the max.

    Seriously, Nazis that kill themselves when they hit 30. Wow. A comedy about keeping runners in a concentration camp. This thing writes itself!

  16. Xeones,

    Don’t make me go all Persian horde on your ass!

    By the way, is that last post from Ishamael Reed? I had to google it. I thought it was a Melville quote but it’s not.

    SugarFree,

    You know . . . I’ve always heard about RC’s Law but I’m still not sure what Dean’s laws are. Explain for me.

  17. Careful Epi. It looked suspiciously like a “Hogan’s Run” type society. You’re getting old dude.

    I am eternal, Naga.

    Seriously, Nazis that kill themselves when they hit 30. Wow. A comedy about keeping runners in a concentration camp. This thing writes itself!

    Plus they’re all jewel thieves! It’s like an evil Marx brothers movie.

  18. The result is ?SUPER NAFTA LAND!, “a giant self-sufficient artificial landscape growing out of the border,”

    I think there is a giant, self-sufficient, non-artifical something growing out of someone’s ass. Possibly their brains.

  19. “?SUPER NAFTA LAND!”

    What system is it coming out for?

  20. Apparently, site prep is about to begin. They’re talking about hosing down the border with Agent Orange, presumably to provide the Border Patrol agents a clear field of fire.

  21. I’ve always heard about RC’s Law but I’m still not sure what Dean’s laws are.

    Glad to oblige: The Iron Laws:

    1. You get more of what you reward and less of what you punish.

    2. If everything is a priority, nothing is a priority.

    3. The less you know about something, the easier it is.

    4. You aren’t free unless you are free to be wrong.

    5. Any power used for you today will be used against you tomorrow.

    6. Money and power will always find each other.

  22. 7. Rotate yer tires.

  23. Rotate my tires?

    That happens every time I take my foot off the clutch.

  24. I wonder how long it will be before the conspiratarians use this as EVIDENCE of the NAU?. I mean, they used the fake joke coin someone made as proof of the Amero. So why not use the fake joke paintings as proof of the NAU?

  25. Full-on modular-architecture grandious weirdness. The Archigram crew would be proud.

  26. 8. Doing nothing is difficult. You never know when you’re done.

  27. I’m a little disappointed that LoneWacko didn’t show up. Admiral Ackbar must’ve intercepted him en route.
