Not another lawsuit!

Yet another case of a litigation happy bozo harassing one of our own. This time, it’s a narcissistic neo-Nazi suing Ed Brayton. Isn’t this fun? If you’re able to help at all, he has a fundraiser in place. This is yet another silly suit, so it’s going to be open-and-shut, but it’s still a pain …

Catherine Deveny wants your money

She’s an Australian comedian and aggressive atheist, and she’s putting together a short film that tells you everything you need to know about atheism in 20 minutes (what? shoulda aimed for a feature film trilogy). To do that, she’s asking her fans to kick in a few dollars. She’s a good one, it’ll be worth …

How Mormons deal with poverty

It’s very Republican. Uintah Elementary School had a bunch of deadbeat kids who weren’t paying their lunch money, so something must be done. And it must be done in the worst, most callous and insensitive way. So they snatched the lunches away from kids after serving them. Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, …

I support Movember

You go, guys, but…what can I do to support a charity fundraiser for men’s health issues when the gimmick is to grow a moustache? It’s not as if I can grow a second one. I guess all I can do is urge all of you poor barefaced men to join Movember, and let your face …

Another cancer story…tomorrow

You people have been marvelous, and our cancer fundraiser has reached over $8300 — and I said I’d tell you about oncomirs, micro RNAs involved in cancer, when we reached $7500. But it’s been a very long week, I’m going to go pass out, so it’ll have to wait until tomorrow. If you throw more …

$6672? MORE!


We’re still idling along, raising money for Light the Night and our battle against cancer. I promised another post on mechanisms of cancer when we hit $7500 — you don’t want me lying about, doin’ nothin’, growing fat(ter) on the government teat, do you? Make me work, reach our next goal. The current sum doesn’t …

We’re getting up there

The FtB cancer fundraiser has picked your pockets for $6352 so far. Did you all have a payday on the first of the month? Feel like kicking in a little more? If the Republicans got you furloughed from your job, I’m sorry, we can wait for them to get their butts kicked by the court …

Cancer reminder!

I don’t want you to forget just because it has scrolled off the first page, but Freethoughtblogs is fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We’ve raised $5887 so far, but we’re aiming for $10,000…and I’ve also promised another cancer biology post if we reach $7500. So cough up if you can! Another important fact: …

What are tumor suppressor genes?


I’m trying to raise money for the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and I promised to do a few things if we reached certain goals. I said I’d write a post explaining what tumor suppressor genes are, while wearing a pirate hat and nothing else, if we raised $5000. Shiver me timbers, I did! And …
