Our Forgotten Slacke...

A small crowd of anti-work agitators marched outside the White House yesterday demanding more support for lazy Americans. The march was originally planned for early in the morning but was moved to the afternoon when the organizers realized that most of their supporters didn’t get out of bed...

Hell on Earth Apr22

Hell on Earth

Pope Francis stunned the ecclesiastical world last month when he seemed to deny the existence of Hell or to imply that it had been abolished, as one newspaper headline put it. This seemed to follow his previous statements that God wanted to stress his mercy rather than the threat of...

The Art of the Nickname

A nickname is usually a descriptive moniker given instead of, or in addition to, one’s formal name. It often describes an aspect of a person’s nature, accomplishments or appearance that carries a particular resonance. Some nicknames are the result of an individual’s achievements such as Alexander the Great or William the Conqueror. Others are given to reflect an aspect of a person’s character such as bravery. Examples of this include King Richard the Lionhearted and Stonewall Jackson. The problem with nicknames, however, is that in most cases you don’t get to choose them. They are usually chosen for you and they sometimes aren’t...

Sound Logic:  A Philosophic Editorial Mar17

Sound Logic: A Philo...

We have all heard that quasi-philosophical question and have pondered it and wondered at the accepted truth of the answer that is famously given to it. The question to which I allude is this: “If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one to hear it, does it really make a sound?” The...

Everything You Think is Wrong Day Mar10

Everything You Think...

This Thursday, March 15, is National Everything You Think is Wrong Day. On every other day of the year we are know-it-alls, believing we have a superior understanding of the world. But on Thursday we are supposed to sit back and reflect on our lack of knowledge regarding everything. It’s...

The Earthlings are Coming! Feb18

The Earthlings are Coming!

Stephen Hawking has been sounding the alarm that our dear planet is facing destruction in the not too distant future. He asserts that if nuclear war doesn’t finish us off, global warning or a devastating asteroid strike surely will. Hawking maintains that we need to start leaving our doomed planet or face extinction. And he isn’t the only Debbie Downer claiming that the end is near. Elon Musk, the business magnate, inventor and futurist agrees with him. Fortunately, Mr. Musk is working on a project to save us. He has a detailed plan to put one million people on a new planet within the next one hundred years. And the heavenly body he has...

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire Feb10

Liar, Liar, Pants on...

Liar, Liar pants on fire, hanging from a telephone wire. We heard that every day on the playground in elementary school. Children said it when calling out another kid’s lie. But these days it seems that grown-ups, especially our politicians, are the ones that are telling the tall tales. One...

You Get Banned!

Just recently, Formula 1 announced that they will not be using grid girls in their races anymore due to modern day societal norms. Apparently,  according to modern day societal norms, men dislike cars and beautiful girls, so this is obviously going to bring more fans and viewers. The girls,...

Everyday Questions C...

By now, everybody is familiar with the interview of Jordan Peterson that Cathy Newman conducted on Channel 4, which wasn’t exactly a display of unbiased and objective journalism. Most people are condemning the network and Cathy Newman for this interview. I don’t think that’s...

Hashtags for 2018 Jan13

Hashtags for 2018

Last year and the beginning of 2018 have seen the rise of hashtags left and right (mostly left, but some are alright). So, one more time, I’m going to use my ridiculously high powers of deduction and deep-entrenched cynicism to predict the hashtags that will be necessary in 2018. Trigger...

A Special Place in Hell Dec24

A Special Place in H...

Recently a lot of people have been claiming that there is a special place in hell for groups of individuals whom they find objectionable. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said it of women who don’t help each other (as in those not supporting Hillary Clinton). Ivanka Trump said it...

Our Lizard Overlords

The world is a dangerous place these days. We are threatened by terrorism, natural disasters, climate change and war. But there is one danger that most people are unaware of which is that our planet may be secretly ruled by a race of intergalactic reptilian aliens also known as lizard people...

Long Live the Longevity Party? Nov11

Long Live the Longev...

Our major political parties are constantly arguing over things like climate change, immigration and the economy. Blah, blah, blah. I don’t care much about any of those things. They don’t have a direct or immediate effect on my life. I had lost all interest in politics until I discovered a new...

Have you ever wanted to fight the system? Be part of the revolution that makes real change possible? Transform the world into a better place? We all do, don’t we? However, that kind of change usually involves hard work, money, and, most importantly, risk. Who has time to challenge the man...
