I’m home.

For a while in college I had post-it notes on my mirror each containing a question to which the answer was always in flux. “Who are you?” “Where are you going?” “Where is home?” The last one never changed.  Home to me was always my parents’ house.  This was true whether I lived in Springfield, [Read More...]

Help make Shit Zombies Say: the book a reality.

I’m moving and dealing with everything going wrong with that, but because it’s time-sensitive I did want to step in briefly to point everybody at the Shit Zombies Say kickstarter. The people who run the site that employs me to write zombie columns are producing a book that I’ll have some authorship credit for (how [Read More...]

Juror B37 in the Zimmerman trial does interview with Anderson Cooper.

I would provide my own thoughts, but Genk Uygur of the Young Turks pretty much sums up my position to the letter. I need to create a “sadness” tag for posts.  I’d probably do it if I didn’t think I’d use it too often. [Read more...]

New papers from Goodman and Mueller.

Kathleen Goodman and John Mueller are two academics that kind of fly under the radar in the atheist community.  In 2009 they published a study in the Chronicle of Higher Education titled Atheist Students on Campus: From Misconceptions to Inclusion.  That paper influenced my life greatly and I used it repeatedly when I was high [Read More...]

Sandy Rios: Promiscuous men like Obama are the force behind pro-choice laws.

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association has an opinion: that it’s promiscuous men driving the pro-choice legislation, and that women are more anti-abortion. “It is generally, from my opinion, the promiscuous white men who are pushing abortion,” Rios said. “I would even say the promiscuous black ones like our president, oh forgive me I [Read More...]

Zombie survival: dealing with nuclear fallout and avoiding tunnel vision.

I have a new article up over at Shit Zombies Say.  I once again take the time out of my busy life to make save some god damned lives.  You’re welcome. If you’re smart, you’ve thought ahead of time about where to relocate.  Maybe you’re on the east coast and you’re going to hop a [Read More...]

You need this.

Ok, I’m on the road today and tomorrow.  Might sneak a post in tomorrow morning, but I’ll for sure be back in the swing on Thursday. In the meantime, enjoy this picture of a teacup pig eating an ice cream cone: [Read more...]

Harassers of Stephanie Zvan, Rebecca Watson, and others are jerks.

Comments closed. I got linked a post by Stephanie Zvan where she talked about responding to a comment on my post about Greg Laden the other day.  The comment was: If you’re really about supporting Stephanie, why didn’t she tell her “husband,” Greg, that in the first place, since she wears the pants in that [Read More...]
