My take on things

Did people recognize they were moving into something bad?

I look around at the world today and it honestly makes me wonder if people realized what direction the world was moving just before it did during those horrific times in history such as Nazi Germany, The Inquisitions, the Crusades, etc. Surely some people would have recognized that things were on the verge of changing for the worse. One can only imagine how someone during the Salem witch trials would view their small community changing overnight from something safe and comforting into something confusing and wrong.

“Trump”ed Charges of Quitting

What’s with Trump and Apprentice anymore? The guy is really turning into a prick. This season has been filled with allot of lame humiliation stunts and when one of the players wises up and realizes that she’s not doing what she signed up for Trump goes on the assault and calls her a quitter as if she’s a loser or a failure. Continue reading

Embracing Ignorance

The other day I was treated to one of those inane chain emails that people send out that include an attachment you must open to find several layers of nested forward emails within it. By the time I got down to the actual email body I’d opened about 3 nested forwards – each layer heavily checked by my virus scanners, of course. Eventually I made it down to the nugget of knowledge being passed on entitled ‘“The definition of Rotten” Personified‘. Continue reading

Intelligent Design of the Evil Genius sort

One of the largest religious farces ever created is the whole “intelligent design” argument. This is the idea that when one stands back and simply examines their surroundings they will see patterns and intricate designs that could simply not have come about without some guiding intelligent. I won’t get into what I think on this whole subject other than to say its bunk, but I am thinking that perhaps there may be some intelligent design behind these flu bugs coming out anymore. Evil mad scientist type intelligent design! Continue reading

Believers (‘Fundies’) do indeed say some of the darndest things

If you are ever in need of some hilarious reading then you must check out the “Fundies say the Darnedest Things” website to see what those crazy believers are saying. It truly is amazing at the depths of ignorance these people voluntarily take themselves. Most of what you read will have you rolling in your seat, while some of it will simply piss you off that such ideals and beliefs actually exist today. Or perhaps it may even make you sad that there are such people in this world? Continue reading

My wife makes me nervous …

So I’m shopping with my wife today and attempted to make myself “occupied” in another isle as she did her feminine shopping. After what I considered a respectable amount of time I still found her in the woman’s section. She explained that “someone” had suggested a product to her about a personal matter and she was unsure if she wanted to spend the money to try it or not. When pressed she couldn’t recall exactly who that “someone” was …

It makes me nervous to think that she can’t recall who “someone” is. I mean, she can’t be telling THAT MANY people about her personal self … can she?
