I think I finally realized what it is that Hollywood didn’t think of when they started making movies in 3D. They didn’t realize that we already see everything in 3D.

I posted this at Yahoo! Answers, but hell one of you people might know what is going on. I started working out a couple of months ago. It was only a light work out, enough to keep me in semi good health and lose a little weight. Things were going fine, but I’ve recently started have problems with my lunges. I started off doing 15 (counting both legs, so 6 and 7 per leg), then moved...

All this talk about the debt ceiling is making me a littler paranoid. I live off of a government check, one that I am entitled to because of my service in the military. I’d still like to think that Congress really wouldn’t let the country actually default on it’s loans, that this really is too serious to play around with. Here is the thing that is really driving me nuts;...
Alfred Pennyworth: A long time ago, I was in Burma, my friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never found anyone who traded with him. One day I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.
Bruce Wayne: Then why steal them?
Alfred Pennyworth: Because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

Gender Frontiers: The Grill →
I just…I just don’t get it. Do we really need to remind people that it is ok for women to use a grill? Women can use whatever they goddamn well please! Any person (man or women) that doesn’t believe so should be left alone and miserable.
I finally got around to counting how many spare light bulbs Grammie has stockpiled in the basement, and I think it nicely illustrates the problem of cleaning and condensing everything she owns. This is partially because whenever a light bulb burns out upstairs, she goes out, buys a bulk package, replaces the one bulb and puts the rest in the basement. Whenever I remind her she has lots of extra...
Did I post this already?
Ok, fine, you’ve made it clear you don’t care about women’s rights. So don’t think of it as a women’s rights issue. The state government requiring women to be made aware of medically unnecessary info sheets and unnecessary ultrasounds is government over reach. You oppose the government regulating the oil industry, the car industry, the mining industry, the food...
Ah pork, both my favorite meat and verb.
So we had an odd assignment in class today because we are talking about how the mind categorizes what it takes in from the world. We were divided into groups and first given easy things to categorize (i.e. even numbers, a square, etc.). Then, after that discussion, we were given difficult topics, and my group got “Feminist”. My group was 7 guys (including me) and one girl. The one...
Finally, I’ve heard the best explaining for “The Talk” to parents who have kids the age for it. “What do you think will be more embarrassing, spending the afternoon talking to your kids about sex or having a 14 year old pregnant daughter or son that is a father?”
I have windows 7 on the my netbook, which means I can make slideshow backgrounds. I have a couple of cools ones, like 17 some odd pictures of ship wrecks that are beautiful. But I have a folder of like 30 really old anti-suffrage posters. I think they are hilarious because they are so backwards, but I’m worried if someone sees them (at school, say) they might not know I’m laughing...
"I'm a woman that hates feminists."
bogarts: If you hate feminism and want to say something about it, raise your hand and place it over your mouth. This same woman who said this was later reached for additional comments.
It seems that Teddy Roosevelt’s senior thesis at Harvard was titled “Practicability of Giving Men and Women Equal Rights.” It sounds interesting, but I can’t find it online.

Thought I’d get around to explaining a card trick since the blog does bare my magic name. I do have the post on stock and cull shuffling, but that was more for my own reference and the interest of other magicians (if any even follow). But, today, I am going to explain, for the firs time, a magic trick. I choose this one because most other magicians don’t seem to have any qualms...

Sometimes I don’t feel like I’m getting in shape so much as I’m just getting sweaty. Figures I would start biking everywhere while Windsor was experiencing a record breaking heat wave.
Two things: 1) To the book store in Devonshire Mall (in Windsor, On), The Game is not a book that belongs in “Gender Studies”. It belongs in the humor section with the other jokes. 2) In the same book store I witnessed a two part event that made be very happy. There was a woman pushing around a kid with medium length curly hair, and non-gender specific clothes. With this, the...
