I am now a chef

Ordinarily I work all day doing atheist activism, then come home and do more atheist activism.  It’s fulfilling, but I’m trying to relax as much as I can right now so I’m trying something new: cooking.  With an oven. This is quite a step for me.  I got As in chemistry, but have never been [Read More…]

Gather 'round, children, and learn an important lesson

Gather ’round, kids.  I say “kids” because there are some messages/lessons adults simply don’t need, like don’t put your hand on a hot stove or it will hurt like a son of a bitch.  This is such a lesson.  No adult should need to be told this. Uncle JT is going to teach you something [Read More…]

Scriblings about honesty

I’ve been up writing.  I’ve been thinking about the merits of honesty and how much we should trust deception in others.  It was sparked by talking with my dad, to whom I said: I wish I had listened to you on the whole honesty thing at a younger age. But fuck, hardly any kid learns [Read More…]

Mystery pile #1

The first mystery pile has been purchased.  Thanks to everybody who submitted suggestions. To freak Cambridge out, I sent her this picture from the supermarket. She texted back and said that this was some upper level shiz, but that she could make it work.  Maybe next time. Here’s what I wound up going with.  I [Read More…]

Life trophies.

It’s 3:30am and I’m wide awake.  I’ve been thinking about a lot of things tonight.  I’m not in the best of spirits, and what does any human being do when they’re down?  They think of things that remind us that we do good every now and again. The one that I’m thinking of right now [Read More…]

The mystery pile

I just moved into a new house with my dear friend Cambridge.  Cambridge rules, possibly more than I.  But probably not. Anyway, Cambridge cooks!  She’s always cooking more food than she needs and forcing dishes upon me that I neither paid for or put in the effort to make.  This makes me feel guilty but [Read More…]

Growing up

In 2004 I was an atheist, but I was the live-and-let-live type.  Religion didn’t bug me, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.  Then, for Christmas that year, my mother got me both of Sam Harris’ books.  In The End of Faith there was a single sentence that changed my life forever. We live in [Read More…]

I haz website

A few days ago the interns at the SSA, Ellen Lundren and Dave Muscato, surprised me with this page. It links to a real website.  I don’t really know what to say.  I’ve got the blog and everything, but at least the web site gives me a space to store my speaking schedule.  It also [Read More…]

Ask your doctor about drug X!

Let me tell you how my morning went. Six months ago… JT:  Hi doc.  I have problem A and problem B.  You’re a doctor.  I pay you money to fix those problems and to make me feel normal. Doctor:  Try drug X for problem B.  It exacerbates problem A, but it can fix problem B. [Read More…]
