Today in Julian Sanchez news

Post by Stevo Darkly » 31 May 2011, 23:15

Thursday night (May 26), Julian Sanchez got mugged by three guys in his D.C. neighborhood, apparently on his way home from somewhere.

He initially announced this on Twitter:
@normative (Julian Sanchez) wrote: Jumped by street punks. They didn't get shit. NExt time best bring kryptonite.
lunchstealer Sandy already said this on Twitter, but I wish to repeat this here:
SandyS1 wrote: Respekt!
More details came from this and other subsequent tweets:
@normative (Julian Sanchez) wrote: Attempted robbery. Got tackled, held them off until neighbors came out. Slightly beat up, but basically fine. Thanks for yr concern all.
Photo of Sanchez with "footprint" on forehead:

Erk. Glad he's okay.

Do we need some Julian Sanchez facts, in the spirit of Chuck Norris facts?

Philosophers recognize four categories of just war theories: jus ad bellum, just in bellum, jus post bellum, and Just Because Julian Sanchez Said So.
The non-aggression principle has a Julian Sanchez exception.
When Julian Sanchez was at NYU, the wrestling team lived in fear of the debate team.
Crime dropped 200% in Adams Morgan when Julian Sanchez moved to DC.
The Pentagon is in Virginia because they're afraid to go into DC as long as Julian Sanchez is there.

I was just thinking, "Y'know, it's been an awfully long time since we at Grylliade had a thread that would utterly creep out whichever Reasonoid read it." Feels good, getting back to our roots like this.

When Julian Sanchez stares into a red-light camera, the camera blinks and looks away.

I'm sorry, but it's not nearly as good a story as the time Mr. Bailey was mugged at gunpoint walking home from the Dubliner and ended up inviting the robber into his apartment for drinks.

Shit goddammit! Did I mix you guys up again? I am definitely seeing lunchstealer's avatar in my head.

EDIT: Motherfuck. Fixed now. Sorry about that.

Julian has now earned the right to wear a leather jacket like Nick's.

Yes. It is part of the initiation to the innermost libertarian circle. First, you have to successfully beat off an attack by statist thugs sent over by the Brookings Institution or the NEA. Then you are entitled to wear a jacket made from the tanned hides of your assailants.

He who fights with a monster must take care lest he become a monster. He who fights with Julian Sanchez must take care lest his skin get tanned and worn as a motherfucking jacket.

Seriously, glad to hear he's OK - that's some scary stuff.

Seriously. (And hilariously.) I don't know if he's ever written about it so you'll have to take my word. Not sure he'd want me to go into all the details, but it was a snowy winter night, he'd left the Dubliner both intoxicated and broke and went off toward his apartment at that time, a basement unit in a Capital Hill townhouse. The robber was a kid, maybe 17 or so, Bailey gave him his wallet without objection (knowing it was empty) and kept walking home. A block or two later the kid came back and gave him his wallet back. Too intoxicated to know better, Bailey began to ask the kid questions and they ended up at his apartment (where there was also nothing worth stealing) talking and drinking Bailey's scotch. Apparently, he passed out, waking in the early morning light to find his front door wide open, his wallet on the table and the bottle of scotch gone.

I don't know if they have those "Most interesting man in the world" commercials for Dos Equis beer where you are, DAR, but Ron Bailey sounds like a candidate for "Most interesting man in the world."

No for him to be TMIMITW the mugger would have to give Ron his wallet.

Last night I did some Googling (for other things) and it appeared that both Grylliade Mark I and Grylliade Mark II were offline.

EDIT: For example, see what happens when you Google "not going to Pho Cue."

Odd; I was just reading that original "Not gonna fuck you" thread about a week ago.

I thought it was spelled "latimeria."

Ha! I am so proud of myself for the sheer scientific dorkiness of that! Which I typed above before Googling it to see what the hell I was talking about! I just sort of had a vague hunch that it might be relevant.

Plato's Guardians stayed in the cave to watch shadows because they were scared that Julian Sanchez was outside.

Julian Sanchez's senior thesis was titled "Critique of Chuck Norris."

Anarchists want to abolish the police and replace them with Julian Sanchez.

DC's gun ban was overturned because everybody in DC is afraid of Julian Sanchez.
