I loves me some Jack Black, and he rules in Heat Vision and Jack. But, you know that work is getting bad when Owen Wilson needs to voice a non-animated motorcycle.

I gotta say that I truly love the fact that the only thing he knows when he stands in sunlight is that E = mc(2).

Bwahaha :D

WORST EVANGELICAL WEBSITE EVER.

Example:
q: Hey professor! Haven’t dinosaurs been extinct for millions of years?
a: Wrong little buddy! Dinosaurs still walk on the land and swim in the seas! And the Earth is less than 10,000 years old!

Of course, they also believe that T-Rex was a herbivore, because G-d wouldn’t have put a meany meat-eater on the ark!


Crack reporter userinfomazzie found out that this is a parody. Phew!

A lot of people talk to me about kashrut in Madison, especially since there aren’t a lot of Jewish people here and I kept kosher myself when I first arrived. So, I thought folk might find this article interesting, especially considering the language that is used to describe the entire event. (It’s about a kosher butcher knowingly selling not-kosher chicken to its Jewish clients in New York.)

I’ve never kept kosher to that extent, but I still found it an interesting read.

Anne Coulter is a “vile life-support system for a mane of blonde hair“. (link from The Panda’s Thumb)

And, for general fun bits of debunkery and things that will at least help you critically questions things (including the website itself), check out James Randi’s Swift newsletters.

I have finished The Writing Exercise! And, I’m all sorts of pleased with it.

Two highly amusing and sad links:
You’re too fat to work here. Apparently this was written pre-sexual harrassment laws.
The first lesbian comic character! Too bad this is a romance comic and no super powers are involved…

random religious thing

I thought the following was interesting; it’s from aish.com, and I think it’s interesting because in Judaism, there’s the concept that not just Jews get to go onto the paradise of whatever (depending on what sect you’re in :P ) — it’s anyone who is righteous. In fact, lots of Jews might not ever get there (I can think of a few…).

I also think it’s cool because it underscores, in a way, how you can have Jewish Buddhists and the like. AND you’ll note that even though it refers to G-d, you don’t have to believe in G-d at all — just don’t go around slandering, yo.

The tales of an American teaching English abroad have been amusing me all day.

“Uh-huh. If you ever try that again, I will give you the biggest kancho in the history of Japan,” I say. “General Tojo will feel it 60 years ago, and call his planes back before they get to Pearl Harbor. Got it?”
