Baggy Silk Pants

I will point out that most Indians don’t give any fucks about whether you dress like them. We actually LIKE it when you do.

Broken Record

So I waited a while to post this mainly because I wanted to make my mind up on the whole Atheism Plus issue. I figure I am late to the party. What it boils down to is combining atheism with social activism and indeed some level of skepticism. Which makes sense. Otherwise we turn into …
