With all the recent history of white people who apparently have a problem with black people existing near them, it's not a ridiculous leap in logic to assume that that's what happened here. But it's more complicated than that.
According to an article in The Telegraph, sundials are at risk of dying out. This will come as shocking news, no doubt, to anyone that thought sundials had already died out, which is everyone.
NOTE: In case you weren't tipped off by the title, this post has a lot of sex words in it. I say "dick" eight times, "penis" four times, and "pussy" twice, in addition to my usual swearing. If you don't like sex words, read something else. Earlier this week, I came across an article entitled... Continue Reading →
So like a month ago (because I am lazy and haven't gotten around to writing this), the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage is legal nationwide because any laws preventing it are inherently unconstitutional under the 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal protection under the law to everyone. Liberals applauded the move because duh, and conservatives... Continue Reading →
First things first: I know this song came out a long time ago. I'd love to tell you that the reason I have taken this long to address it is that I wanted to be very careful and deliberate about how I broke down exactly what is wrong with the song and its message. Unfortunately,... Continue Reading →
QUICK NOTE: I wrote the bulk of this post almost a year ago, but it got lost in the shuffle and I didn't finish it until just now. I realize the news item in question is long gone, but the points still stand. Recently, American Eagle made some headlines by announcing that their lingerie line, Aerie,... Continue Reading →
Recently there was a schism on the internet between people about the color of a dress. That led to all kinds of scientific articles about how we perceive color differently, memes about white and gold things and black and blue things, and finally, eventually, this. That is from an article on LinkedIn, written by a woman... Continue Reading →
EDIT: I've written a followup to this post here. Today, to kick off my triumphant return to writing, we're going to talk about the so-called "paleo" diet. At least four people I know have "gone paleo," as they annoyingly insist on calling the decision to eat this particular way. It's all very new-age and exciting, like... Continue Reading →
If you read the title and are already upset, then you're already part of the problem. If you don't want to read the opinions of those who think differently than you, you might as well close the browser and move on. Speaking of which, women. I have long said that women are too nice to... Continue Reading →
This all started when I was reading Busty Girl Comics. For the record, BGC are not porn. I'm sure some disgusting and desperate soul somewhere has masturbated to them, because it's the internet, but that's the kind of person who could probably masturbate to pictures of missing children on milk cartons, so they don't count....

"Baby" by Justin Bieber is the most watched video on Youtube. It's been seen close to 700 million times for a collective watching time that would make you sad, so you can do the math yourself because I'm not telling you. It has garnered over seven million comments, and even if you think Justin Bieber's... Continue Reading →
Recently a friend of mine posted this on his Facebook wall. All I did was blank out the names. "Wow," I thought to myself, "those are both perfectly reasonable reactions to what I'm sure is a headline that has not been dramatized or blown out of proportion even a little." In my experience, people are... Continue Reading →
Listen, kids. Normally I try to come up with some kind of pithy title for my posts, often including a pun or a lot of swear words because I'm pissed off about whatever it is that's happening. Not today. And why, you ask? Because today I am sad. I am sad because the World Health... Continue Reading →
Earlier this month, Starbucks released the Trenta in stores across the country. The Trenta is a 31-ounce cup of coffee, only for use in their iced drinks. They've been testing it since last January, and apparently it's doing well enough to implement. The main objection that most people seem to have, and I do not... Continue Reading →
There is an organization in this country called the American Atheists. They're mostly dedicated to maintaining the separation of church and state, but they have some other assorted causes. One thing that got them a fucking gigantic amount of press recently is these billboards. Now, they're not supposed to be inherently offensive, and I think they're... Continue Reading →
