Product Review: SmokeBuddy
I love my smokeBuddy! It’s pretty excellent — just blow through one end, and no smoke or odor comes out the other! http://www.smokebuddy.com/ At $20, it’s not a bad deal — especially if you’re in the dorms or someplace else where you’re “not supposed to be smoking.” And remember! Tobacco use only ;)
Skepticism and atheism are, at least in their highest manifestations, noble,...– David Bentley Hart

ignatius-m: californiacornbread: It has come to my attention that those of the Christian faith are under the impression they will be subject to a rapture as described in the book of Revelation. When a rapture occurs, those who have Christ in their heart will ascend into heaven to be with God, Jesus and other people I really don’t want to be around. Because of their potential to suddenly...
Cracked: 5 Bad Ideas Humanity is Sticking With out... →
The QWERTY keyboard, teaching cursive, 3-month summer vacations, corks in wine bottles, and the imperial system (as opposed to the metric system). Yeah, these are all pretty dumb things that could afford to be replaced by slightly less dumb things. QWERTY replaced with the Dvorak keyboard. Teaching cursive replaced with teaching typing. 3-month summer vacations replaced with a 2-month summer...

Uprising in Syria →
Revolution is in the air once again! The government is cracking down of course, killing civilians and trying to restore order to their oppressive regime. You know what I think would be cool? If something like that were to happen here — hell, it’s not like we don’t have things to demand. We want money for healthcare and education, we want prison reform, we want the wealthy to...
WikiLeaks Releases Gitmo Documents →
Once again, machine automation reduces human error, increases safety, and improves efficiency — this time in the pharmaceutical market. Every year, medication errors cause over 7000 deaths and millions of injuries — and cost $3.5 billion. This machinated system has prepared and processed more than 350,000 doses without error. Just one more thing computers are better at than...
Your religion and government suck.: Guess what? →
ordinaryrevolutionary: godisnotreal: This dude named Jesus died [yesterday]. More importantly, 30 syrians died today, the libyan death toll reach 10,000 3 days ago, 12700 afghans have been killed as of 17 hours ago. Fuck jesus. We don’t even know if he’s real. Get your head out of you mythological bullshit and pay attention to what’s going in the REAL WORLD. Government is oppressing us,...
Do You Have Free Will? →
My thoughts are “no.” The ideas of monism and cause-and-effect have thoroughly convinced me that human beings do not have free will, and, moreover, that everything that happens in the universe is predetermined. Which means praise and punishment are both stupid (though punishment more so; I’m not usually inclined to crack down on good things that are goofy). Thoughts?
Everything good must come to an end. Fortunately, so must everything bad. And that’s the craziness of it: life, that is. It’s full of pits of despair that seem so terrible that there’s no climbing out, and then you blink and all of the sudden you’re floating on a cloud. This is what I cling to in the dark, and preach in the light. Enjoy the good while it lasts...
(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
I’m never satisfied. I hate it. No matter what I’m looking at, I can (and will) find the flaws. There are problems in everything, and it’s starting to become all I see. Problems with this world, these people, but most of all with myself. I’ve become self-deprecating, overly critical, and ruthless. My mistakes have evolved into gleaming beacons of imperfection,...
