Dark Adventures and Dumbfuckery

bear facepalm

Just reading a status by a Facebook friend where he talks with pride about his adventures waking up in strange beds and houses, being threatened by men with guns, handcuffed by cops, all sorts of exciting bad-boy mayhem.And I kinda have to wonder ... why go there? Why choose THAT path?I mean, we live in a world where fantastic adventures are possible, adventures of growth and learning and accomplishment, and even real danger if you want it. You can stand on the floor of Yosemite Valley … [Read more...]

Short Stack #23

If we had evolved from deer, I wonder if we’d all get out of school and jobs for several weeks in the fall, so the guys could scratch their horns against trees, and get in fights.----------------------I’m imagining that we first-worlders will have to switch over to strict vegetarian diets as population continues to increase, and third-worlders will switch over to grass.Fortunately, they will be provided with a genetically engineered digestive enzyme that will allow them to eat the gra … [Read more...]

Chicken

We had chickens when I was a kid -- White Leghorns, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Plymouth Rocks, Bantams -- and I loved feeding them.

This was the bizarre sight that greeted plane passengers when an Orthodox Jewish man covered himself under a plastic sheet.It was believed the man is a Kohein, a religious descendant of the priests of … [Read more...]

Processing Atheist Grief: Some Thoughts

blue rose

I continue to think about death and grieving, coming up on three years after the passing of my Cowboy Dad (not a blood relative, but someone more special in my life than any of my real relatives). I occasionally have new ideas about the subject. Here's a couple:1) If you lose someone to age or illness ... Ask Yourself 'What If?' Consider the pain you're in, the magnitude of it. Now imagine that you could go back in time and change the events of your life so that you'd never met that … [Read more...]
