OK, so I watched some more P&T episodes and found one about how the so-called, "obesity epidemic" is bullshit. Of course, the obesity epidemic is bullshit. Pretty much everything one sees in the media is a load of dog shit. Nothing new there. I can't really deny however that something's going on out there. I mean, after all, there are tons of super-fat motherfuckers walking around and scooting around on those little electric carts everywhere one looks.
Nonetheless, I had…Continue

I just finished watching P&T's "Bullshit" episode on dolphins. It inspired me to share my personal experience with them, which I had back in the Amazon River Basin in 1996.
No, I didn't travel to the Amazon in 1996 to swim with the world's only freshwater pink and gray dolphins who inhabit the waters there, but to... well... to... ummmm... uh... OK! So, I don't even know what the fuck I went to the Amazon for in the first place! It's just that I've always loved adventures (and…Continue

Baboon monkeys kidnap feral dogs as pups and raise them as family members. The baboons groom and play with the dogs and the dogs feed with the baboons. The dogs are well cared for by their respective baboon families and stand guard at night, protecting the baboons from enemies and other feral dogs.
See? Even a baboon is smart enough to realize the potential power of his -- and man's -- best friend, the dog. …Continue

“For a lot of people it's their first love they always remember. For me, it's always been the first hate. And I think that hatred, though it provides often rather junky energy, it provides a rather terrific way of getting out of bed in the morning and keeping you going.” -- Christopher Hitchens
"The Visions we offer our children shape the future. It matters what those visions are. Often they become self-fulfilling prophecies. Dreams are maps.
"I do no think it irresponsible to portray even the direst futures; if we are to avoid them, we must understand that they are possible. But where are the alternatives? Where are the dreams that motivate and inspire? We long for realistic maps of a world we can be proud to…Continue

I could not have said it better myself...

During Penn's Sunday School last, it was announced by Penn Jillette that some future Sunday School's were to be created in another town. Penn said he wants to do Wyoming. Very cool choice!
My suggestion is to have a Sunday School live from Las Vegas, NV, from Penn's bathtub. After reading Penn's book, "Atheist Holiday", and seeing the hilarious story about how he had done nearly everything, including important meetings with Teller, from his bathtub, I think it's great idea.
