The V-word

Via Salon.com’s Broadsheet, we get this helpful reminder of basic facts about human anatomy. Be warned that some parents might not want to explain the picture to small children, or perhaps to their bosses. It’s safe for work, though.

Happy belated blogiversary!

August 1, 2004 was an auspicious day. From the hot, humid hills of eastern Kansas, a voice cried out and invited his nonexistent readership to “Check out my ActBlue list.” The next day, this bloggish neophyte expressed his disgust at the rape, sodomy, and general abuse which went (goes?) on at Abu Ghraib. Later that…

Safe in Oakland

I’m still getting moved in and catching up on email and other stuff, but this photo from NCSE HQ confirms what I already knew.

Random stationary music

On the assumption that I’m in California, some happy music for your Friday: “ELT“ by Wilco from the album Summerteeth (1999, 3:46). “Walls (Circus)” by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers from the album She’s the One (1996, 4:25). “Blue Eyed Soul“ by Wilco from the album A.M.

A Few Good Men

Reposted from the old blog because it’s still true over a year later. There’s nothing I hate more than people who are too stupid to realize that Jack Nicholson’s character in A Few Good Men was the bad guy. He declared himself a law unto himself, and that’s not what America wants, it’s not what…

Yet more random traveling music

It will be a bit days before I can spend time writing anything thoughtful, so enjoy the music and reposted material for a little longer. “Monty Got A Raw Deal“ by R.E.M. from the album Automatic For The People (1992, 3:17). “Devil In Her Heart“ by The Beatles from the album With The Beatles (1963,…

Reposted from the old TfK, for your enjoyment while I drive out to the NCSE. I don’t mind creationism. I know this comes as a bit of a shock, but I don’t. For our purposes, creationism is the belief that a supernatural force or being created, designed or otherwise shaped the universe and life in…
