I am jealous of Canada yet again

First you hoard all of these strange delicious candy bars from me. And now you have a new quarter featuring a dinosaur? With glow in the dark bones?!?! I hate your awesomeness, Canada.

Indiana gets a gold medal in Raping Teen Girls

My home state is number one in the nation for rape of young women, with 17.3% of Indiana girls in grade 9 through 12 having been raped.

Goodbye, Greta!

EDIT: Happy April Fools. It’s official: Greta Christina will be leaving Freethought Blogs. I know, it really surprised me too. Greta is one of the first atheist bloggers I read and was major motivation for me to start my own blog. Over my three years of blogging, we’ve become close friends. I wasn’t surprised when …
