Happy Father's day to the best dad ever

I have the best ever.  He is wise, and he busted his ass to give my mother, my brother, and myself a good life.  He has supported me in everything I’ve ever wanted to do and been patient when I fucked up (which was often). I recall one of the many times I and our [Read More...]

Talk atheisty to me…

A friend of mine has been visiting her deeply conservative family in Florida for the last week.  She texted me the other night to make sure I was still picking her up from the airport. My responses come from the fact that I spent all of yesterday answering texts with my magic 8-ball. Friend:  You’re [Read More...]

Death threat #10

Back when Skepticon was getting on its feet, I received nine death threats over the space of two years.  One of them actually made the threat by showing up on my front porch.  Anyway, I decided then that when I hit my tenth death threat I would throw a huge party.  I was certain that [Read More...]

I get mail

I get things in the mail.  Usually it’s a Christian pamphlet of some kind or a copy of The Case for Whatthefuckever by Lee Strobel.  One time received a book on how to tie people up.  This was convenient in that it was less boring and more informative than Fifty Shades of Grey and also [Read More...]

The best place (Blogathon 49/49)

We did good today everybody.  We raised a lot of money for a great cause. I’ll finish with a bit I love about working at the SSA: they treat you like a human being.  “Oh, you’re sick?  Why are you coming to work?  Stay home and take care of yourself!”  In every other job I’ve [Read More...]

Proving Love (Blogathon 36/49)

Michaelyn here! Want to ask me a question? Go here. Bill Krueger asks: Do you find answering the question “Prove that you love [insert name here]” difficult? Please note, I’m an atheist so I hope you don’t consider this a baited question. When people find out I’m an atheist, they often ask, “Do you believe [Read More...]

My Favorite Evening, in the Style of 50 Shades of Grey… (Blogathon 32/49)

Michaelyn again! PhilMay says: Describe your favorite evening out with J.T., extra points given if you can write it in the style of Anastasia in Fifty Shades of Grey. Just for you Phil…(note: if you don’t get the humor, you haven’t read 50 Shades of Grey. That’s okay, don’t do it. It should be noted [Read More...]

Topics bought with donations: the Dark Knight trilogy (Blogaton 28/49)

I got asked what I think of the Dark Knight trilogy and my thoughts on the upcoming movie. Thought number 1: being the first superhero flick released after The Avengers is like being the next shooting guard after Michael Jordan.  You may be great but you’re going to look like a chump by comparison.  I [Read More...]

Ninja bachelor raid (Blogathon 27/49)

So, back in high school we had a really tight-knit group of friends.  We called ourselves “The Guys Team” (yes, there was a Girls Team too). One of our members, Jeremiah, wound up getting married when he grew up.  Jeremiah always had a thing for ninjas.  This pissed me off since I’m a pirate. Anyway, [Read More...]

My Atheist Story and Our First Kiss (Blogathon 24/49)

adamcollins asks: What’s your atheist story? Did you used to be religious? I wasn’t raised religious. The only time I attended church as a kid was when we visited my grandmother or if I just went along with a friend from school. As a child I went back and forth, never really sure what to [Read More...]
