Stuff You Don’t Need to Know

Some days the smorgasbord of life just overwhelms me. I’m like a kitten in a room full of empty boxes and little red lights. You can’t chase them all but you want to. But my job is to filter the inane from the insane and present you with something to help you get through the day. So, after careful consideration and due deliberation I decided to punt. Instead of concentrating on a single issue that interests and inspires you, like my work on the 3D Shape Shifting Jesus, I’m just…

ROAD TRIP!

Added to the list of things I did that may not have been very well thought out in retrospect was hitching to California in 1981. For some reason I wanted to go, I didn’t have enough money for gas and I did have a thumb that worked just fine. So I took off without telling anyone where I was going. It was in Nebraska that a young lady introduced to the phrase, and the concept of, “Ass, gas or grass, nobody rides for free.” I took door number one for…

Gettin’ Jiggy With the Neighbors

It’s no secret that I maintain the position that just because alien life should exist doesn’t mean that it keeps bouncing of our planet so that it can keep anally probing farmers. The problem with every – ahem – theory ascribed to UFOs is that they don’t even pass a basic smell test when subjected to 3rd grade logic. That still doesn’t stop stupid people from draping themselves in darkly colored sheets of ignorance. That being said, some rational people have given some rational thought to the idea of finding…

3D Shape Shifting Jesus?

Yesterday I wrote about how Jesus may not have been the joyful pacifist we all know and love. In fact he may have been leading an actual revolution designed to overthrow the government. I have noted before that the New Testament, unlike the Holy Qu’Ran which was written down once and then immediately mass produced, has tended to evolve over the centuries. New documents appear which cause people to revisit the source materials. When you’re dealing with historical texts you have to be willing to correct errors or remove erroneous…

Was Jesus a Violent Revolutionary?

When people tend to focus on a vision of what a historical Jesus would have been like they tend to look at his final days or his youth, allegedly spent wandering Egypt. You can, if you wish, even recreate His journey. Although you may wish to wait until the revolution subsides. Anyway, the point is that most people simply assumed that the accounts of His known life in the gospels were, for lack of a better term, the gospel truth. Certainly there are discrepancies in the gospels. I have already…

The War on Women

Before we being today I think I need to make a confession. I do not have a vagina. At least not one of my own. I have played with other people’s but I’m pretty sure that’s not that same. I bring this up just so we can avoid any confusion. I also bring it up so that we’re clear on another point; since I don’t own one I have no say on what to do with them. Beyond the mutually consensual stuff. In other words, if you want me to…

To Your Health

There’s nothing I can say about recent events in Florida that will cause you to think of things one way or the other. I will note that when Florida raised the bar on what constituted murder and passed their Stand Your Ground laws I wrote that something like this was bound to happen. Or, simply put, the number of murder cases has gone down but the number of people being killed with guns has steadily climbed each year. However, while thoughts about this will raise your blood pressure I’m not…

For Moms and Dads …. Only

I am an adult. I write for adults. I should also note that I don’t have any children. Don’t get me wrong, I love my nieces and nephews and the kids of my friends, I just never think about them when they aren’t around. Or, if I do, it is purely in the abstract. Other mothers’ children, as it were. Over the last few weeks I have broached some more adult themed pieces. And I have posted some more mature, not porn but still for the 21 and up crowd,…

Merikah, Fook Yeah!

You are intelligent, good looking and a gift to the gene pool. This is not about you. Not even a little bit. You know that it is perfectly legal to desecrate an American flag. You also know that there is a Flag Code. It uses terms you may have forgotten. Terms such as “Respect,” “Prohibitions” and so on. In other words it’s not how you HAVE to behave but how you should. It’s kind of a long read but we can skip to the bottom and get to the important…

As American As ….

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. According to the song those are the definition of what makes America great. Short of owning a slave that could be the theme music of the modern Tea Party. We’ll get to that omission in a bit. After all, what’s more American than oppressing the rights and humanity of others? Anyway, back to the song. Let’s start with baseball. Nothing is more American than that, right? Gameplay centers around a number of innings, in which teams alternate at batting and fielding. A maximum…
