I find this fascinating.
The Garden of Eden was in or nearby Israel. Not to say this would disprove evolution, because it wouldn't. But it does make for interesting arguing.

"You don't see zombies worrying about who marries who based on sexual preference."
"There are no rich or poor zombies. All zombies are equal. We could learn a lot from them."
"Look out! Zombie!"
"If these zombies don't kill us, surely Global Warming will."
"I think we'll finally be safe here inside the walls of Gitmo. Who'd have thought such a horrible place could redeem itself like this?"
"George Bush and I created these zombies to fight Al Qaeda! How could we have been so foolish?!"
"Madame President, the zombies have breached the bunker!"
"Somebody get me outta this crazy zombie apocalypse!"

This time I don't
Her argument is childish bordering on bigotry. For me, I don't know what the right answer is to DADT. I fear that since it's an all volunteer military it might turn off some enlistments if there is an open gay policy, but I also don't think the military isn't going to be "gayer" because I don't think gays will be running to the recruitment office to sign up now that it's open.
But one thing I do fear the most is that if a gay soldier is passed up for promotion for whatever reason, complaints will be filed for discrimination. You know that will happen.

But I know in the eyes of the haters that while the misdeeds of a few priests casts a dark shadow over the entire catholic church, the goodness of this priest will only be seen as a goodly man who just so happens to be a priest.
For the record, if a muslim cleric/preacher/Imam were to show a similar story (not that I am saying there isn't. I just haven't heard of one yet, but I do welcome it) I would be the first to applaud him and maybe even have a little hope for the cult of Islam.
Yesterday, younger children ran through a rubber obstacle course while officials told the older children the story of a 14-year-old boy who police nearly shot after they confused his air pistol with a real gun.
Way to go, cops. The best you could come up with is a story where a kid was almost shot while brandishing a toy gun? The media, after school specials and primetime courtroom dramas have led me to believe there is no shortage of incidents where cops are gunning down innocent kids with bright orange squirt guns. At the very least you could bust out the scene from Die Hard where the Twinkie loving fat cop from Family Matters talks about shooting a kid. Just weak.
Hall said she had no regrets. The 26-year-old mother of six said she has been trying to wean her only son off toy guns for years. In kindergarten, he brought a pop gun to school and shot at a classmate when the child refused to return his toy truck.
Oh, now I get it. The real danger is that if your 5 year-old carries a toy gun, our overreactive nanny society will have them expelled from school or taken away from you. Well, that is a grave set of circumstances. Thanks a lot, Columbine. I guess those kids really did leave their mark on the world. Mission accomplished! Have we built a memorial to Klebold and Harris yet for all the apparent good their actions have ultimately achieved? Long overdue.
“I tell them that this is for a good cause,’’ she said.
And that good cause again? Are they taking all that chewed up toy gun plastic and building jungle gyms for third world orphans of the American War on Terror? Or is this just another case of ignorant parents saying what they think sounds right when the media jams a recorder in their face? But hey, if just one child isn't almost shot by police, it's worth it. Merry Christmas!

The only way to disprove Global Warming is if the world somehow manages to never end. I can't wait for that.
But in their eyes they are keeping her safe, right? Or are they just worried about their bullshit muslim honor?
To be fair, a report came out last week that Hindu man performed an honor killing on his daughter in India for the same thing, but it's the degree at which it happens amongst muslims that I find disgusting.

One reason is that I had a similar idea years ago and obviously the creators of Dexter illegally entered my brain and mined it for sweet ideas, kind of like whoever went ahead and started manufacturing window scrubbers that had a ball joint for cleaning the inside of your car windshield. Time for me to invest in a tinfoil hat.
Another reason is that I'm kind of a douche. You know, if I didn't discover it on my own then I'm not going to give anyone else the satisfaction of turning me onto it. It took me a long time to check out Firefly and The Wire for the exact same stupid reason.* And the way people lord the amazingness of their shows over you can be a turn off as well (See Arrested Development, a show I actually liked but never loved based solely on the people who did love it).
Anyway, I just finished the first season of Dexter and it was pretty great. It's gruesome and twisted, but the writing is great. The characters are lovingly fleshed out and the story is extremely engaging. It might start to suck as the seasons progress, but I'm hooked now and will probably ride it out to the end. You should check it out if you're looking for a show to obsess over for a while.
*Sometimes I'm right. People still sing me the praises of Mad Men, but I watched two seasons of that show and it's just plain terrible, I don't care what anybody says.

I'm not going to get too heavily into it, but the movie version of Scott Pilgrim had no heart. The thing about the comics was that I was literally blown away (not literally) by how much depth and heart they had. In the movie it was apparently enough to tell the audience how everybody felt without showing anything but flashy CGI. At the end of the film I was terrified that they were going to completely change the outcome of the original story, and it probably would have made more sense in regards to the characters the filmmakers had so thinly created. It was visually and audibly stimulating, but guess what? So were all the Resident Evil movies. Also, do you think this...
As for the Walking Dead, every time I have a conversation with anyone about this show I find myself defending it based on nothing more than the possibility it could get better and that I really just want to like it. The truth is that the pacing is terrible, the dialogue is stilted, the social agenda is unbearable and the direction is unclear. I defend this thing because I like the comic and I'm not going to do it anymore. Until this show earns it, I refuse to take it seriously.
Thanks, Hollywood. You suck.

I don't want to get into a big thing about how reality televsion is cited in the Bible as a sign of the End of Days or anything, but I'm almost certain it is. You know, if you believe in that sort of thing.
'The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment, and it is a travesty that we can't.'
What's truly sad is that it appears these scientists have actually convinced themselves of their own righteousness when this whole thing was just supposed to be about the money.

While listening to conservative propaganda radio today I came to realize this: it's not what wikileaks exposed that is interesting, but what it hasn't exposed.
Where is the 9/11 conspiracy for the truthers?
Where is the Halliburton files telling us how Cheney drove us to war?
How about forged WMD files?
Phantom Plane in the Pentagon?
Nothing like that?
Huh, sorta wished I could read about "the real truth the government is keeping from us."

And while we're on the subject of Facebook, I'm ready to strangle the next person who implores me to copy and paste a Facebook status for blah, blah whatever or to change my profile pick because it's gay 'cat in a sweater month' or some other such bullshit. Fucking Facebook is stupid. I hate most people enough already without it.

Reall, Jennifer, really? Does it really feel damn good to beat a chick 1/2 your age who hasn't done a damn thing except being the daughter of the one person The Left is most terrified of, or are you looking to pander to liberal hollywood?
To be fair, the host couched the question like this? "Obama and Biden defeated Palin. How do you feel about defeating a Palin?"
Just remember, all, McCain was the man running for president not Palin.
And he would have gotten killed if it weren't for Palin.
The left knows that. They are scared of this woman and so reminding everyone that she was once defeated helps them to sleep at night... but not very well.
Had to think about that for second, didn't ya?
Soccer is the suckiest suckity suckfest to ever suck on ESPN. But somehow, one day we're all gonna love it. I promise!
