Pope Benedict said on Monday that gay marriage was one of several threats to the traditional family that undermined "the future of humanity itself".
You know what actually, truly threatens the future of humanity itself?  Virgins.

Fap on! *fap* *fap* Fap off! *fap* *fap* Fap on, fap off... the Fapper.


I think that the Kindle is a complete failure.  How the hell do you start a fire with this thing?


If you ever wondered how Jeph Loeb got a job writing Batman, Warren Ellis found his submission letter.


During the "don't ask don't tell" repeal hoohah back in March, i learned a new historical tidbit: the US Civil War started because the Union wanted to station gay soldiers at Fort Sumter.


The Vatican is a rogue nation run by people who systematically protect pedophiles worldwide; it's time to invade and provoke regime change.


When i see the iPod silhouette ads, i amuse myself by thinking that they depict people who've just been shot.


How to get from Wank to Fucking in about 3 hours.


analogue n. a conversation that originates from the talker's behind.

Imagine that when you're born, you receive a gift.  However, the only way to open it is certainly lethal.  You carry this gift with you all of your life, and your brain is wired to wonder, at times to the point of obsession, what's inside.  Now imagine that there are many around you who assure you that certain actions, behaviors, or thoughts will increase or even maximize the odds that the gift will be something awesome when you finally open it, and they prey on your uncertainty to make their point.  But the fact remains that they have their own box, and they don't know what's in it, and nobody who's ever looked inside has survived.

You know what i say?  Stop worrying about your fucking gift and get on with your life.

Whenever i try to write up what currently passes for my personal philosophy, it starts looking suspiciously like i'm trying to reinvent Taoism.

While cruising through Wikipedia, i found this:

Pahawh Hmong was the product of a native messianic movement, based on the idea that, throughout history, God had given the Hmong power though the gift of writing, and revoked it as divine retribution.
Humans sure find some of the damnedest things to believe in.

If i told you that a bunch of Christians prayed in front of a golden bullock for money, you'd think i was just being a bigoted asshole, right?

Jason Elam, the kicker for the Denver Broncos, and his pastor have written a novel titled "Monday Night Jihad".  The protagonist is a veteran who plays pro football after his tour of duty, but is pulled back into fighting in the Middle East.

Fundamentalists are crazy.  They're the real world equivalent to the evil geniuses of our spy fiction and our superhero comics.  They want to mold the world into a specific shape that they really believe in, and if you don't believe in that, if you can't relate to that, it just seems crazy.

Publick goes into a few of the reasons why i despise the DC and Marvel universes. I should take advantage of this interview and ramp up my anti-DC/Marvel rant.
