  • I prefer a woman with something to hug

    All too often us guys are stuck with the statement that we only ever have our mind in the gutter with no escape route. Granted I can’t argue, though I certainly must be more careful as a married man since the threat of even looking at another woman is a risk that could carry the ultimate consequence.

  • The world of tomorrow is getting further away

    Once way back in this great society of ours we actually spent a great deal of time pondering what was to come. Many a generation was convinced that in a matter of decades the future would become so futuristic that we could stop calling Walt Disney a liar.

  • Why no theologian would have survived my childhood


    Looking back at my childhood experiences with religion it is a wonder I’m not either the founder of a super cult or a hard core atheist. Between the things that happened at home and the world around me if I hadn’t had good experiences with Christianity, I might be tucked away in a cave muttering over the psychological damage.

  • Let’s just do away with political parties

    If there is one absolute truth that can be unearthed in the never ending garbage pile called politics, it is usually lost along with those that wallow in the refuse. Yet, amidst the rotting lies we hear from those who claim to represent us perhaps we can pinpoint one of the key sources that keep the perverted joke free of a punch-line.

  • Grow up and allow liquor by the drink

    All too often, small towns across America use paranoia as a reason to keep responsible adults from enjoying life

  • ‘Halo 3: ODST’ more fun than game expanded upon In the world of entertainment there is often a push to see who can win at the been there done that contest. Still, most of us that like to escape from the bill paying world have accepted this and try and at least weed through to those that feel the least recycled.

  • I fail at being lazy


    Somewhere in between birth and my childhood I missed being initiated into the accomplish-little section of society. Perhaps it is my parents or a government implanted chip to blame, but I can’t quite grasp how to become a pro at wasting my time.

  • Apocalypse How: Can we really stand the end

    Ever since man first learned to appreciate the world around him there has been someone there to try and kick dust in the eyes. For some reason, through legitimate science or just self hate, select individuals have been determined to find as many ways we could collectively shuffle off this mortal coil as possible.

  • Not enough water for a self-absorbed society

    Perhaps the most unflattering characteristic of human nature is the ability to think of oneself as a mighty and deserving being. Don’t get me wrong, it fits the whole survival of the fittest thing in a world where being the best only gets harder each day, but maybe we take our egos out for too many victory lunches.
