It’s a Holy Day, Let’s Talk About Porn

I know, I know, you’re busting out the Kleenex in anticipation and, don’t worry, we’ll get to the porn stuff. But many readers want to know the proper way to celebrate Easter since they are unclear on it’s pagan roots. Allow me to help. Czech Republic and Slovakia: In both the countries, women can expect to get (a) whipping. As a part of the Easter tradition, men beat girls and women with decorated handmade whips. However, the whipping is not intended to be painful. It is believed that whipping on…

PIPA, SOPA ‘n Nerd Porn

Yesterday was an interesting day in the World News Center. For those who were living under a rock I’ll recap. Yesterday started off, here at least, with me writing about how dumb the PIPA and SOPA proposals were. The Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) was the brainchild of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Yes, the same state that couldn’t figure how to outlaw bestiality without outlawing all mammal sex is the home of one of the most egregious pieces of legislation ever foisted on the world. Not to be outdone, Texas…

Thank God for Porn!

My life is different than yours. You just don’t realize by how much. Today I will give you a helpful example. You already know that I am friends with a man who knits his nipples together for a living. What you do not know is that I am also friends with a priest. See? I bet you don’t have two friends like that. Anyway, the father is a very nice man and has tolerated me for years. Yesterday he asked for some advice about videotaping a group of kindergardeners who…

Say Yes to NOVID

Thanks to some astute readers of this blog, and listeners to The Big Wakeup Call, I was introduced to a fascinating new app. Called NOVID, it’s way for you to assess your risk of catching the disease. While COVID-19 is not the most lethal virus known to man, that would be Ebola, it is, by far, the most pernicious. And, only now are scientists beginning to figure out how damaging it is. As of this writing approximately twenty percent of survivors suffer some degree of organ damage. I have a…

Why Don’t You Know This?

I wrote this back in August of 2015. It seemed to me like I’d covered all the bases and could call it a day. I was wrong. Uber announced they are going to launch a flying car service in select cities starting next year. There is one itsy-bitsy problem with that. I’ll start with the simple stuff, the Moller Skycar, written about here on several occasions, still doesn’t do what it claims and no one will license it for use. But, if you must have one, they’re dumping them on…

JC & The Sun

Jesus has been through a lot in the years since his resurrection. First, he morphed from a dark-skinned Middle Eastern carpenter to a skinny white dude. His message of peace has been used to justify wars, slavery, hatred, discrimination, and other travesties. That would seem to be counterintuitive to the whole Peace thing, but who am I to say? Moreover, His words have been through numerous edits since they were first laid down to parchment by Mark in 60 AD. So, all things considered, it’s amazing as much got through…

Them Versus Them

It’s hard to believe that once, not that long ago, movies about superheroes were so few and far between that any attempt to do the genre justice, no matter how lame, was heralded by fans as the best thing to happen to things in the history of things. And, as I noted before, those movies got co-opted by major studios, watered down, and turned into the movie franchises we know and love today. So far so good. I guess. At least the groundwork was laid for superhero movies to start…

Stop With All Your Ish … tar

I know that people get so excited when something seems to agree with their narrow view that they neglect to check the facts. It’s why, and how, the Tea Party thrives. That being said, atheists and rationalists are allegedly the people who live on facts and facts alone. I used to count myself among their number until I realized that if I was the most evolved creature in the universe then the universe was fucked. Therefore, while I subscribe to no particular religion, I do believe in God. I also…

The Dawn of a New Era

Disney owns Marvel. Marvel owns Thor. Thor is now a woman, who is the daughter of king Odin. Thor is now a Disney Princess. You can thank Patricia Hernandez at Kotaku for bringing this to the attention of the internet. Thor is about to be joined by Jean Gray, Kitty Pryde, She-Hulk, Sue Storm, Rogue, X-23, Mystique and many others. No news yet if General Leia will be downgraded to princess again, or what will happen to Rey, Maz Kanata, Captain Phasma, or Katie, the Star Wars Girl. What the…
