Thirteen years of hard work means less than a pseudo-curse word.

The Valedictorian of an Oklahoma high school is being denied her diploma.  What crime did she commit?  She had the unrestricted gall to utter a word with a universe of impropriety stuffed into a single, wretched syllable during her graduation speech: “hell.” Kaitlin Nootbaar graduated from Oklahoma’s Prague High School back in May of this [Read More...]

Turkey's gotta eat too.

My parents have a bird feeder on the deck, literally about eight feet from the doorway. Yesterday they looked outside to see this and mom immediately snapped some pictures. [Read more...]

How can you tell if you don't understand evolution?

Because we’re a completely normal couple, Michaelyn is reading her textbooks early (she knows the way to get me all hot and bothered) and sharing tidbits with me over skype. She just came across this in her biopsychology textbook: “Many critics of evolution say that it is only a theory, but anybody who makes, or [Read More...]

Tisha UnArmed shows you ALL THE THINGS

Christina here..   So, pretty soon I’m going to be uploading and interview JT and Tisha did a few months ago – as soon as I finish editing it (I need to get rid of some audio noise and add some pics of her artwork and stuff – yes, she is an ARTIST. Mostly watercolor [Read More...]

Review: ParaNorman

You know how sometimes you’ll be watching a movie and think, “An atheist totally wrote that line.”  Well, ParaNorman is full of them.  It was a great flick to which I’ll be dragging Michaelyn the next time she visits. ParaNorman was made by the same group that produced Coraline, and it has a lot of [Read More...]

First open NFL thread of 2012-2013

I want to start with talking trash about how good the Raiders are going to be.  Then I just can’t bring myself to be that dishonest. Then I want to talk about how there’s a real chance they’ll make the playoffs this year.  Ditto. There’s so much turmoil and a new, untested head coach in [Read More...]

Sometimes I think I'm so witty

Hey, err’one. Michaelyn here. With class starting on Monday, KU campus is full of frosh who just moved into the dorms. Hawk Week started last night which means all the student groups got to set up tables and advertise for their organization. I love tabling. Last night I set up shop for the Society of [Read More...]

God on Trial

I found this video some friends and I made in college back in the day.  It made me smile. [Read more...]

Less than a week to Guild Wars 2!

Fair warning: next Saturday at midnight PDT I will disappear.  My girlfriend and family will be able to contact me, but otherwise I will be paying no heed to the world outside of Tyria for the whole weekend. I have decided on my class.  It was a toss up between a warrior and an engineer.  [Read More...]

Birthday karaoke!

I was sitting and thinking to myself that I haven’t actively celebrated my birthday in so long that I have no idea what to do.  I’ve just been sitting here in a disheveled stupor, spacing out at my monitor ever since I woke up. Then, it occurred to me: the local karaoke joint loves me.  [Read More...]

This stuff could go to a guy's head…

My lovely girlfriend antagonizes me because she loves me. So, it’s my birthday.  I’m also at a real down point depression-wise (which I’ve been writing about for the last week).  I’m doing better though, so that’s awesome.  Still, no alcohol and no sweets for me.  Control the environment. Instead, I’m drinking in all the very [Read More...]


…AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW! It’s time! It’s officially past midnight in Eastern time, so that makes it JT’s birthday!! JT doesn’t like to celebrate his birthday, so I’m using my WWJTD blogging powers to tell you all. You should leave him messages and courage wolf memes in the comments! Yayy! I’m so into spreading [Read More...]

Ben Witherington annoys me.

Patheos makes me feel schizophrenic.  On the one hand they have the Friendly Atheist blog, which is awesome, and makes it look like Patheos pursues only top tier talent.  On the other hand, they have some other blogs that make me wonder if there are any standards in place at all. (Speaking of bloggers at [Read More...]

"Separation of church and state isn't in the Constitution!"

It’s inevitable any time you point out that government endorsement of religion is against the law. It seems to be an instantaneous reaction of those on the right, like screaming when someone shouts “boo!” at them from the shadows: “Show me where the words ‘separation of church and state’ appear in the Constitution!” Let’s sort [Read More...]
