” ☞ **PLEASE SHARE** This was one of the hardest and craziest pranks that I’ve done… took us two weeks of planning and getting everything together. Most of the people wouldn’t get into the car in the first place…. it literally took us two weekends to finally get this crazy footage.
FYI: We put the passenger seat on child lock in case they want to escape, which he actually did… We took Josh to a nice restaurant afterwards. He said he will NEVER jump in to a stranger’s car EVER again lol
Thanks to Cody for being a partner in crime:
I don’t think I’d have been so kind writing the improved text on their pieces of paper. I ‘think’ it was Clemmons who said it is better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. I rather like that both Clemmons and Lincoln are quoted as saying it but even more ironic… check out Proverbs 17:28
Here is one to make you think… I enjoyed it.

I’m sort of loathe to hit publish on this.
I’ve been feeling sort of blah this week, and I don’t really know why. I’m not down or anything, just indifferent I guess, especially towards blogging. Maybe it’s all the snow and cold, who knows?
This post is a total buzzkill, so if you’re looking for a laugh, please turn away as there are none to be had here today. There’s not really a point to it, other than writing makes me feel a little better, like I’m accomplishing something, so there’s that.
Almost all of the information below, along with both pictures, came from the St. Louis Post Dispatch articles written about the same thing.
On an otherwise typical May afternoon in 2010 , two St. Louis area men were driving in separate cars along a road that parallels a river that basically separates the City from the County…

You can’t argue with logic like that!

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.
Four worms were placed into four separate jars.
The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.
At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:
The first worm in alcohol . .. . Dead
The second worm in cigarette smoke . . .Dead
Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . . Dead
Fourth worm in good clean soil . . .Alive
So the Minister asked the congregation, “What did you learn from this demonstration?”
Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, “If you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms.”

If you don’t know Allallt in discussion, now’s a good time to cruise on over then and look at some of the great wrtiting there.

That Bill Nye and Ken Ham debate happened, apparently. I haven’t watched it. I have, however, stumbled across a Buzzfeed article by Matt Stopera with the title I have given this post. It is a series of pictures he took of creationists with questions they wanted to pose to Bill Nye. I thought I’d weigh in. The questions are in bold.
1. Bill Nye, are you influencing the minds of children in a positive way?
I can’t speak for Bill Nye. But Bill Nye can. Bill Nye has already explicitly said that you can believe what you like, but encouraging children to learning something patently false (and calling it science) is not appropriate for children and damaging to the country that encourages it. Here.
2. Are you scared of a Divine Creator?
No. In the words of Bill Nye “We would need just one piece of evidence… [list of…

The Pink Agendist has a pretty awesome blog. His take on this topic is stunning, and allows us to see how the church set the tone for what they now describe as necessary organs of society. Don’t stop with one post, check out the whole blog too.

Christianity has had, since its inception, an obsession with moulding the law to subjugate entire populations to the tenets of the faith. By the year 321 Constantine had criminalized work on Sundays, prohibited Jews from stoning those who left the Jewish religion for Christianity and required all soldiers to gather on Sundays to recite a prayer to the ‘almighty God’. In 323 the emperor imposed a law against idol-worship, statues, divination, and against pagan sacrifices. In 332 Constantine forbade heretical groups to assemble. Their buildings were to be surrendered to the catholic church*. From then to now a barrage of prohibitions and restrictions have been thrust upon the public- and it is here we must ask: Why? Legalizations force no one to behave in any particular way. They leave each individual the choice to look at issues and arrive at their own conclusions. The need to involve the law…

I can’t say I know what happens on the insides of a dojo but i do know that if more people were taught this the world would be in a much better place…. in my world the phrase is “own the problem”

TACAMO is something I batter into my juniors: TAke Charge And Move Out. And I mean batter. It’s something that within my dojo I take credit for, it’s my project. As I see it everyone from me as senior student downwards is a leader, everyone. Everyone, if no-one else is in charge, is to take charge of the situation and take action and they’re to work on the principle that doing something is better than doing nothing. If you fuck up that’s fine, you were doing more than anyone else. Case in point tonight, I walk out of the bar and there is a woman on the floor, I head over “Has anyone called an ambulance?” I know full well no-one has because I’ve seen this five or six times, the bystander effect is in full operation, everyone is too busy shatting themselves and thinking someone else has done it,…
