I just started a new group, Consumer Ethics. I haven't had a chance to start a discussion yet, but please check it out and join if you are interested.
Anyone who pays attention at all should not be surprised to learn that how we spend our money can profoundly influence social and economic justice, environmental preservation or degradation, animal… Continue

Animals shouldn't be kept imprisoned in zoos in the first place, and the Gaza Zoo was probably substandard and inhumane to begin with, but this is just pathetic. I have no sympathy for the Palestinians or the Israelis any longer. The world would probably be better off without the whole lot of them.

Finger Salute to Bush.org
Having endured eight long years of misguided leadership on the part of the Bush Administration, it is with great regret and well-bridled enthusiasm that we orchestrate PEACEFUL CIVIL DISRESPECT, in the form of raised middle fingers, on a worldwide massive scale as common citizen George W. Bush ascends by helicopter from the White House on his return to… Continue

I enjoy language. Reading about it, studying it, and observing how it changes and grows. It is not far off to say that language is a living organism that responds to its environment, and is forever transforming itself. There are a large number of books available on word or phrase origins, forgotten words, or obscure but useful words.
At the end of every year, lists such as this one come out. If I run across some other ones, I'll be sure to post them.
Banned words… Continue

I just added some songs by The Electric Hellfire Club on my page. If you are not familiar with them, please check it out. They are one of my favorite bands, and I am disappointed that they have not produced anything new in a while. Enjoy!

Just joined today. I've been an atheist like, forever, but just now exploring online atheist forums and groups. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up (which is pretty sad considering I'm almost 40), and I have yet to figure life out. Here in my world, life is a rollercoaster with many ups and downs.
I enjoy reading (when I have time), and music. I don't socialize much, for various reasons. Currently I'm reading a Chomsky book, and Holy Horrors
, about religious… Continue
