New office!

The Secular Student Alliance is growing by leaps and bounds – which means bigger office space!  Today we’re moving to a much nicer facility where all the campus organizing team will not be in the same room!  Lyz Liddell will have her own office from which she will gaze down on her underlings and sip [Read More...]

How to not make people groan during a Q&A

I just got back from Michigan.  Will do a write up of the debate…tomorrow? Anyway, I’m going to take the rest of the day to catch up on sleep, but first I wanted to give some friendly advice.  I speak a lot, so I do a lot of Q&As.  There are certain behaviors that make [Read More...]

Godless killing machine

I have resisted charging an honorarium when I speak for so long it has annoyed many people close to me (I now have a suggested honorarium of $100, but I’ll waive it if asked).  I’ve done this because, for one, I’m happy to speak.  I’m flattered for the chance and that people are keen to [Read More...]

Go mom!

Remember when my mom was in that online contest with the venison dish she made?  I’m pleased to announce that, due to help from all of you, mom miraculously launched into a commanding lead and held onto it through the end. She is now the proud owner of a ‘Savannah’ Custom Knife, RediEdge Original Sharpener, [Read More...]

Help my mom! :)

My mother sustained my brother and me on wild game.  As children our chili was made with venison, we dined on fish my parents caught.  Our Thanksgiving turkey came from our woods and was not reared for slaughter.  Guests at our house can count on eating the heart/liver of some animal that had a sporting [Read More...]

How to not be an asshole when traveling #3: don't demand they put you in danger

You know how when there’s a car wreck you can’t help but look, even though you really sympathize?  That’s how it was at the airport on Friday with the gate right next to mine.  They had to swap out a plane to Atlanta because of mechanical problems which meant a huge delay, which means everybody [Read More...]

FtB as D&D

There’s been a lot of talk about Dungeons and Dragons lately on FtB.  PZ points out that role-playing games like D&D are un-Christian.  What more reason do we need to play them?  I’ve also personally seen Richard Carrier’s stash of historic D&D (and other systems) memorabilia.  The man could be king of the nerds, seriously. [Read More...]

How do you miss this kind of irony?

Saw Rebecca Watson tweet this last night and it made me want to hike to my nearest Mazda dealer just to poop in their parking lot and leave. Mazda has found a mascot for their new SUV: the Lorax.  Not joking. http://youtu.be/vrvg33vkdFI [Read more...]

Reason Rally road trip

Alliteration in blog titles ftw. On March 21, Michaelyn and I will be road-tripping to Washington DC for the Reason Rally.  We plan to make a day out of it and to live blog our adventures. Do you guys know of anything we shouldn’t miss between Columbus and DC?  Anybody wanna meet up for lunch/dinner [Read More...]

Best boss

I am not the easiest employee to manage.  I have a psychological disorder that makes me useless some days.  I have a history of being openly defiant of authority.  I’m very idealistic and have the same appreciation for being politically correct as a wolverine. But my boss at the SSA, Lyz Liddell, manages it. I [Read More...]
