  1. Read a fascinating book lately called, "Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History" by Kurt Andersen. The premise of the book are the lies we tell ourselves about various aspects of American life and religion is a huge part of it. Specifically, religion as practiced in America and how people are encouraged to "believe" virtually anything they want to, which opens up the floodgates for charlatans and hucksters. I have LONG maintained that the US is a country where virtually everyone has their thumb on the scale in one way or another. I have no problem with "small" religion. Hey, whatever gets you through your pain probably is helpful. What I intensely HATE with every fiber of my being is "big" religion which preys on those who pray. Televangelists can properly go fuck themselves. EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM. Politicians who use religion as both a shield and weapon can go fuck themselves. Criminals who use religion to justify their actions can go fuck themselves. Busybodies who want to tell me what to do with my life because of their religion can go fuck themselves. Idiots who deny science and progress because they believe god will sort it out can go fuck themselves. It's not religion I have a problem with, it's mostly the people. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  2. Understand the atmosphere on Mars (and being simulated here) is -very- thin. What that means is, even though the inflation rate is rapid by Earth standards, it's not particularly jerky (yes, a change in velocity is called jerk). quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

  11. 1. It's not like he left NPR on exactly amicable terms (he was forced out so might have a bit of a grudge). 2. He has a book to sell. 3. Most of the article doesn't come close to reflecting the tone of the headline. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  12. Well, one thing this ought to do is get the ultra-right wingnuts to shut up about Hollywood and Weinstein. Oh, who am I kidding? quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  13. My two cents. If a grieving mother wants to say ANYTHING about you because you put her son in harm's way and he subsequently died, for whatever reason, even the noblest on the planet, you STFU and take it. You STFU and TAKE IT. You don't send another grieving man who lost his son to cover for you. You STFU and TAKE IT. Look, I realize Trump probably originally meant no disrespect, but he could have been more eloquent. After his inability to do that, he should have at least personally apologized. But no. What an asshole. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
