Just have sex, people, and enjoy it.

Written by my wife, Jodi. The account she posted under didn’t get migrated. Men, you don’t need to have a porn star penis. There, now that that’s done we can all just move on right? I wish. I had a great conversation today with a friend that started by me relating a story about once …

Ricky Gervais on Noah

From his new Out Of England 2 stand-up special. Man, he’s gotten all svelte. It’s uncanny. Like Jon Stewart, I just want him to put on a jacket so I stop looking at him and boggling.

How Thunderbird’s Lightning color scheme under Ubuntu pissed me off (and how to fix it)

This is a bit of a UI complaint, moreso than a coding one. Fair cop. Most programmers aren’t designers, and most programmers have a mistaken idea that all programmers can do design. Mozilla Thunderbird is an excellent e-mail client, though with the advent of very good webmail clients, the e-mail client is slowly moving into …

25 blasphemous quotes

It’s quite illustrative to note that quote number one was said by the character Jesus Christ in the New Testament, the famous fan-fiction of the Jewish Torah (thereafter known by Christians as the “Old Testament” and by Muslims, who wrote their own fan-fiction, as “The Divine Book”).

The Pope is NOT a moral authority.

Not after this statement: In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society. “In the 1970s, pedophilia was theorized as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,” the Pope said. “It was maintained — …

Climate change — what’s in a name?

Not much. And certainly not that meme floating about saying that it’s been rebranded — given that “climate change” was coined well before “global warming” with respect to Earth’s present upward trend in global temperatures.

George Hrab – I Don’t Believe in Christmas

An appropriate, non-dickish, and happy song for Christmas day for an atheist, especially if you’ve already listened to White Wine in the Sun a few billion times. Don’t mind the title.

The real issue right-wingers have with DADT’s repeal

If you’ve been following the recent fallout from the recent repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, you’ll know that the vocal fringe of the right-wing has said some pretty absurd and hateful things about the potential results of allowing openly gay soldiers in the army. Specifically, that doing so will “pussify” or make effeminate the …

Crop circles are obviously man-made.

And here’s exactly how you can tell. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist. Just someone willing to zoom in on the image.
