MENTAL ILLNESS: I see affection as a competition.

It was a good therapy session this morning.  “Harold” pushes me hard to explore my underlying perception of the world which might play into my eating disorder. I realized today that I view affection as a competition, which probably goes back to high school when I received little of it from my peers.  To this [Read More...]

PLANE CRASHES: Co-pilot deliberately crashed Germanwings plane.

The other day I did a write up about the crash of Germanwings flight 9525.  In the post I talked about how it appeared the pilots had some degree of control over the aircraft, which made it strange that they never issued a distress call of any kind.  Now we know why: the co-pilot deliberately [Read More...]

PERSONAL: My wife holding a brain.

Got this message from my wife who is in her lab: Boom: Is it weird that I find this incredibly, incredibly, stop-what-you’re-doing-and-let’s-make-out-right-now sexy? It’s weird, isn’t it? I’m weird, aren’t I? [Read more...]

FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Missouri megachurch pastor urging congregation to vote to repeal anti-discrimination laws.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME??? Seriously, everywhere I live religious assholery seems to follow in my wake.  I’m cursed, I think.  First my home state of Arkansas has been overrun by theocrats wasting the state’s money, now a megachurch in Springfield, MO, where I went to college, is urging the community to repeal the [Read More...]

FAITH & POLITICS: Theocrats are in control in Arkansas.

My home state…I love it’s lakes and its beautiful wilderness, but the people in it make me want to vomit blood. I was just looking at the ACLU of Arkansas’ facebook page.  It turns out the 10 commandments bill wasn’t the only piece of theocratic legislation to make it through yesterday: Bad day at the [Read More...]

FAITH & POLITICS: Arkansas 10 commandments bill is alive again.

Yesterday I reported that the Senate committee considering the Arkansas 10 commandments bill rejected it by a vote of 3-3 (it needed 5 votes to pass).  Sadly, Sen. Jason Rapert resubmitted it and yesterday it passed: An Arkansas Senate committee on Tuesday advanced a bill that would provide for the creation of a monument honoring [Read More...]

GAY RIGHTS & POLITICS: Indiana hasn’t come very far in 90 years.

Progress appears to be on ice in Indiana. I honestly doubt you’ll see any of these signs around. The Christians who discriminate against gays through their business stop being so proud once word leaks out. They want to be able to quietly refuse service. You’ll seldom find one proud enough to hang a sign announcing [Read More...]


This dog fell asleep watching it’s owner play games.  I want this dog.   Sad news: I slept in today and it’s voice lesson day.  That means I have to power through the news and do short posts.  Git redy. [Read more...]

FAITH: Duck Dynasty star fantasizes about atheist family being raped and murdered to show morality comes from god.

On Friday Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson gave a speech at the Vero Beach Prayer Breakfast.  In an attempt to deliver some wisdom about morality, he hypothesizes a list of atrocities happening to an atheist family (you should not read this if you have a light stomach): “I’ll make a bet with you,” Robertson said.
