Thank God No One Overreacted!

Florida is a strange state. You know that, I know that, people with double digit IQs know it, yet Floridians themselves seem blissfully unaware of that fact. This is the state that encouraged people to hunt pythons with hand guns. Which is just as effective as hunting elephants with pebbles. Fortunately no one was killed. Why is there a python problem in Florida? Because they hold cockroach eating contests so poor people can own them too until the poor people realize they can’t afford the upkeep pythons require and end…

Girl Power!

Diana is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, the first child born on Paradise Island in the three thousand year history that the immortal Amazons lived there. The Amazons had been created around 1200 B.C. when the Greek goddesses drew forth the souls of all women who had been murdered by men. One soul was left behind, the one that would be born as Diana. That soul originally belonged to the unborn daughter of the first woman murdered by a man (whom Hippolyta was the reincarnation of). In the late 20th…

This Makes Me Sad

I know, as do you, that there are people out there who believe some odd things. Quite a few of them represent red states in the U.S. Congress. Others have talk shows on Fox. But the one thing most of us try to ignore is how those people got to where they’re at. In the case of our delusional congresspeople they were elected by a majority of constituents in their part of the country. In the case of the talk show hosts they are there because there are enough people…

Blue Light Districts

There are many unintended consequences. A quick search of the Interweb will keep you goggle eyed for hours. And most of them are bad. Really bad. Simple things like cutting funding for birth control can lead to the state spending millions on orphans and neglected kids. This is called “bad” in case you’re unsure. But not every unintended consequence is an opening into hell. For example, I have been shopping a novel, just like you, and it has earned me a couple of new friends who have made my life…

Things to Do This Winter

First off, before we begin, I’d like to clarify something that came out in the Eric Snowden documents. Former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer is one of those fun people who believes in UFOs and claims that aliens are living here. he, for reasns that make sense to some not named me, is quoted by the NSA in their records. That led some people to jump to the logical conclusion that Adolf Hitler helped tall white aliens take over the U.S. government. Which led the U.S. Government to issue a…

Just Don’t Call it Justice League

Warner Brothers and DC comics seem to be upping the ante lately. They announced a new Superman movie. Then they announced it was going to be a Superman Batman movie. Then it morphed into a Superman, Batman & Wonder Woman movie. Now comes the report that they have cast Jason Momoa as J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter. There are also reports that he might play Doomsday but those are silly. All Doomsday does is grunt and beat up buildings. He would be completely CGI in the movie. A dude in…

Not Well Planned

We all have great ideas that we’d like to see taken back. It happens. I once had a great idea for a hair cut that ended up with me looking like a demented skunk. I once worked for a company that designed a 3 wheeled forklift, with the 3rd wheel in the front. When I noted that most forklift driver drive backwards, so the forks are always pointed forward to grab merchandise, I was called an idiot. They rolled out their invention at a construction exhibition and were roundly lambasted…

Yet She Didn’t See This Coming

I don’t want to hate people and this is the internet so, before I begin, I ask that you click THIS LINK to restore your faith in humanity. It is the story of a litter of kittens who escaped the deadly cold by breaking into a maximum security prison. A place where the inmates have adopted them. Did I mention that it was maximum security? You know, serial killers and people like that? I just thought you should know. Okay, anyone who knows me knows that I’m a huge fan…

Bonding at Meal Time

First off, kudos to Abigail Miller who posted a reward of smokes and beer for her lost dog. I had not thought of that before. Anyway, she got the dog back. The guy refused the reward so now she’s going to bring him a sandwich. I tell you this story so that you may remember that there is good in food. I’m reminded of that a lot since I give away a cookbook every year to anyone who’s smart enough to click this link. Again, good times. Now, I’m about…

Blasphemy Anyone?

“Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the ‘wall of separation between church and state,’ therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.” ― Thomas Jefferson That’s as good a quote as any. Clearly the First Amendment, and the long history of abuses that…
