I can hardly wait to see “Dear Mr. Watterson”!
Talk about a self-defeating argument: On Tuesday, Deseret News flagged a post on Utah’s Republican State Sen. Aaron Osmond’s blog Friday where he says that Utah “should take a close look at repealing compulsory education.” Just what Utah needs: more idiots! I’m sure it would be beneficial for the GOP, though.
Hours after Rick Perry signed sweeping new restrictions into law, Texas state republicans filed an even more draconian bill to ban abortions after six weeks. What, you didn’t see that coming? Texas, for the last time, please secede yourselves back to Mexico already!
Here’s a very loving retrospective on the “Phantasm” movies. Didja know that Angus Scrimm, who played the Tall Man, once won a Grammy for writing great liner notes or that he also speaks Flemish?
The Vatican is offering time off from purgatory to followers of Pope Francis’ tweets. No, this isn’t something from The Onion.
Honore de Balzac once said: “A man cannot marry before he has studied anatomy and has dissected at the least one woman.” I maintain that you should do this only after marriage.
Call them the ‘Impuritans’: Miscellaneous Sexual Offences – 1653-1683 in the Plymouth Colony Court Records.
Once again the U.S. falls behind: China is ranked world’s fourth ‘horniest country’. “In the past eight years, 5,000 sex shops have opened in Beijing alone. Plus, China even has a Sexpo, where Chinese residents come to check out sex paraphernalia”.
Tour the Museum of Bad Art, for “art too bad to be ignored”.
The only thing worse than arguing on the internet is losing an argument with a cat on the internet.
Call me “Side-Strokes With Pigs”. Yes, you can swim with the pigs at Pig Beach in the Bahamas. Talk about a dream vacation!
Send Prozac! No, not for me… for THEM!
I live in the very sweaty area just under the buckle of the Bible Belt. Having been an atheist from an early age, I frequently have had to deal with some very hostile religious people, particularly protestant christians. Perhaps because more cosmopolitan people from outside Indian Territory (you know, them fancy-pants folks that kin read and write and cypher and even critically analyze new ideas) make it a habit to AVOID THIS AREA LIKE THE PLAGUE, these hostile christians are a rather insular lot, unused to the norms of civilized life and are frequently deluded into thinking that they’re granted the divine right to accost, condemn and denigrate others over the same matters of conscience they are free to exercise in this country.
It’s very quaint in a “Children of the Corn” manner!
Just last night a lovely woman, a stranger to me, launched into a vitriolic diatribe over my identification as an atheist (may have been on pof.com). Seriously, if we’d been face to face, the depth of her ignorance and hostility were strong enough that I’d have had to consider the use of lethal force, because she was acting THAT scary-crazy. I can still smell burning heretics in the air.
Is there a “Stand Your Philosophical Ground” law in Oklahoma? -<Heavy sigh>-
