Charles Teo has a lucrative racket

Teo is an Australian surgeon who has a brilliant scheme for anyone with a bit of surgical skill and a complete lack of conscience. He performs surgery on inoperable brain tumors in kids dying of cancer, and then ships them off to the Burzynski clinic in Texas to get injected with urine and die. You’ve …

There’s a fine line between being a Time Lord and being senile

To fill in all the dead air and vaporous mumblings on his far-too-long broadcasting schedule, Pat Robertson pontificated on the nature of time recently. I suspect that he may light up a little weed during the commercial breaks. Well, clearly, this indicates that Sean Carroll either needs to run for president or start a religion.

For JT

beardy

JT dreams of replacing me someday, and thinks all he has to do is acquire a Trophy Girlfriend. How wrong he is. I will give him a little hint. Don’t worry, JT. Puberty is almost inevitable. Never let it be said that I am ungenerous to the younglings. I have a suggestion for JT that …

How to free kids of religion

I’m sure there are many ways to break free of religion, but here’s a compilation of religion-busting strategies for children. Strangely, none of them involve shipping them off to a camp where they’ll be disciplined if they question the word of the Lord and are forced to memorize dogma day after day. None of them …
