Happy Halloween

It’s time, once again, for children of all ages to dress up like sluts and embarrass themselves in public. Who could ask for a better holiday than that? I mean, we surrendered the Saturnalia to Christmas, so officially being allowed to be who you’re not was missing from our lives. Halloween brings that back. Speaking of back, as in bringing sexy back, you’ll be pleased to note that thick chicks tend to be smarter and live longer than those chicks who need a biscuit. ABC News spent a lot of…

They’re Being Good Sports

During the history of history the Catholic Church has accomplished some tremendous things. It has also been responsible for some of the most vile atrocities know to man or woman or beast or what have you. I have friends who can’t get past the Spanish Inquisition. I can understand that. However, having been raised Catholic my world view is a tad more nuanced. Or so I hope. I have covered how porn led to people learning to read the bible and helped literacy in general. It’s a simple fact. It…

Welcome to Hell

There are people who demand that no one be allowed to buy condoms. They claim it is a command in the bible. It’s not and they’re stretching that spilt seed thing way past its limit, but this isn’t about logic or truth, it’s about control. They also demand that you not have sex but, if you do have sex, have it without a condom. That way, after you have your condom free sex and get yourself or your partner pregnant, they can forbid either of you from getting an abortion.…

Post Racial America & The World

If you’ve spent more than one minute in public or watching TV in the last year you have probably noticed that racism, thought to be on the wane in years past, has been making a roaring come back. Or, to be more accurate, it is not going quietly into the good night. As the racial makeup of America skews darker each year there are those who cling painfully to a past that never was. And if their vitriolic screed injures another that is a price they seem far too willing…

From Then to Then

We are humans. As such we have senses and social histories that color our world view. No matter how hard anyone tries to be impartial it’s just not truly possible. Unless you’re a fictional TV character or a robot. And even then I’m not so sure since both are created by fallible folks like you and me. Yesterday I wrote a brief update on an article I’d done a while back about Atlantis and then I went into the research on Yetis, which took an odd turn towards reality. Several…

First Atlantis, Now a Yeti

Way back in 2011 I wrote a little story about how Atlantis had been found. And not in any bizarre location thousands of miles from nowhere, but in Spain by a scientist named Richard freund. Research is ongoing but, except according to some irate occultists, it seems to be the real deal as described by Plato circa 360 BC. However, since reality is boring to some folks, there are those left unsatisfied by the discovery. There is also nothing I can do about that. It is what it is. The…

When Gay Puppets Adopt

Bert and Ernie conduct themselves in the same loving, discreet way that millions of gay men, women and hand puppets do. They do their jobs well and live a splendidly settled life together in an impeccably decorated cabinet. – The Real Thing by Kurt Andersen, 1980 Bert and Ernie are two grown men sharing a house and a bedroom. They share clothes, eat and cook together and have blatantly effeminate characteristics. In one show Bert teaches Ernie how to sew. In another they tend plants together. If this isn’t meant…

Why Aren’t These Films Real?

As stalkers around here know, I am friends with a young lady who works on the left coast and is involved in possibly, maybe, doing pre-production for the new Justice League movie. Which is GUARANTEED to come out in 2017 ….. maybe. I say “maybe” since Warner has yet to green light a Flash or Wonder Woman film. Nor have they decided what to do about Green Lantern. Do they Thor him? That is, ignore the first movie, use him in the assembly anyway and then make a 2nd real…

You Have Been Warned

Life choices. We all face them every day. Some would seem to be easy, like should I take the hair dryer into the shower and use it? Allegedly the answer is no. And yet, every year some schlub dies with a hair dryer in a shower. Because the whole interaction between electricity and water has never been examined. In Australia they created a video about many of the dumb ways you can die. I warn you now; if you click that link you will never unhear that song. It was…

Teach Your Children Well

I’m not good around kids. Oh, I can be if need be but the things I like to do – drink, swear, frolic with naked women – are prohibited by a variety of state and federal laws, not to mention some social mores, in any situation involving kids. I suppose that’s for the best. Nevertheless, since parents are (in the main) reluctant to do the mattress mambo in front of their spawn they occasionally will ask someone to take their darling progenies elsewhere for a nonce or two. And since…
