Jocelyn Thibault in a one-knee pose quite similar to Tim Tebow's praying pose

Via @artologica on Twitter, evidently someone caught a snapshot of French Canadian goalie Jocelyn Thibault on one knee. This is, of course, meme-worthy. One of these days I’m going to have to give in and ape Tebow’s prayer pose myself. Only, maybe, picking up a penny. Or petting a cat. Certainly, catching me in something …

Of Skyrimming, overzealous Christianity, and reading comprehension

One of my absolute favorite theist parody sites is ChristWire. They are, for all intents and purposes, a proving ground for Poe’s Law.

The man who could not see his own reflection, but thinks he looks Amazing nonetheless

Obligatory trigger warning because HOLY FUCK. There is, suddenly, a lot of to-do about TJ Kincaid, also known as The Amazing Atheist, a provincial and prejudiced man who believes himself to be superior to others by virtue of having figured out the question of God (e.g., “there isn’t one”). A lot of people who have …

16 year old girl Hacks the Tube almost into space to get into MIT

Via Boing Boing, this is absolutely awesome. As part of their Early Action Admits, MIT challenges prospective students to hack the tube the enrollment letter came in into something cool. So one 16-year-old girl put a camera, a GPS, and two Ham radio transmitters, strapped it to an 800 gram helium balloon, and sent it …

Real genuine proof the moon landing (simulation) was a hoax!

What do you get when you stitch together footage from NASA’s moon landing simulations prior to the Apollo project, with footage from the actual moon landing, with an audio track meant to make you pee with laughter? Well, you get a Youtube comments thread so full of facepalmingly poor logic and conspiracy theory that you …
