A Victory for the Indiana Atheist Bus Campaign

A while back I posted how the Indiana Atheist Bus Campaign had their ad “You Can Be Good Without God” rejected in Bloomington for being “too controversial” even though the bus agency (owned by the town) had run religious ads before. Well, they’ve reached a settlement regarding their lawsuit! The transit will run their ads …

Goddamnit Facebook

First my Dad friends me. Then my Mom’s like, “Wait, why did you friend your Dad and not me? Friend me too!” Then I think my Prof/Boss friends me so I accept his request, only to find out his friendship was merely suggested to me by a coworker, so in actuality I sent him a …

New Blogs

Two of my friends just started blogs, so I figured I’d give them some pluggage. My friend Mike is a political science major and a prolific tweeter who will now be blogging over at Politics and Pucks. Most of his stuff will be over politics, the interactions between politics and religion, pop culture, and hockey. …

Ahhh, much better

I’m feeling much better now after resting. Took a five hour “nap” after making that last post at 9am. I could have slept longer, but I didn’t want to completely destroy my sleep schedule. A friend I hadn’t seen in five months ended up randomly calling me to tell me he was passing through town, …

I MADE IT!

And the Blogathon is over! Ahahahaha, success! Not once did I fall asleep, and I’m sure I only humiliated myself a couple of times rather than constantly. And more importantly… We raised $449.32 for the Secular Student Alliance! Thanks to everyone who helped out: Everyone who donated money, PZ and Hemant and the SSA for …

Suggested bloggy reading

Since I’m likely going to crash once this is over and be disgusted by the idea of blogging for at least a day or so, here are some of my favorite blogs you can peruse in my absence. Unless you’re one of those people who saw my 49 posts, went “What the hell?”, and didn’t …

The disgusting breakfast of champions

And lunch, and dinner, and second dinner, and and and… In the last 24 hour I have ingested what can only be 50,000 calories of food (please don’t calculate it though, I rather not know). The problem with the blogathon was that I had no time to cook (and I had no ready-to-eat food available, …

I'll pray for you

From Mark: Still alive, here’s Guest Post #5! The question was “How you feel when people say ‘I’ll pray for you’ because something bad happened to you?” In the end, it’s a tough question to answer. On one hand, the people that say these things to me don’t understand that it means nothing to me …

Favorite sleep deprivation memories

This isn’t the first time in my life that I’ve pulled an all-nighter. Most just end with me being cranky and crashing. Others are more memorable. Once I had pulled an all-nighter for our Science Olympiad State competition (as did most of the team). On the bus ride home most of us went completely insane …
