Listening to the waves

It is a cacophony of noise.

The sound of the moon pulling at its tether
The sound of molecules churning and clashing
The hidden roar of hurricanes and typhoons

Yet it calms me and lulls me to sleep.

Bicycle camping

Well, this is the third day of my bicycle-camping trip. I'm using a F5 Enduro Hi-Racer recumbent with Jandd Mountaineering panniers. The bike is performing really well. I don't have the speedometer on the bike, but a speedtrap I passed by had me clocked at 22mph.



I've been using my old Thermarest camping mattress, but I'm also using a LuxuryLite Backpacker Cot. Wow. The cot is uber-comfy. Combined with the Thermarest, It is actually more comfortable than a lot of beds I have slept… Continue

Holy Shit! I just watched Bill Maher's Religulous!

I just got out of watching Bill Maher's new movie, Religulous at it's world premiere at the Traverse City Film Festival. It was one of the first films to sell out at the festival, selling out in just the first couple days of sales.



Security was very tight. Cellphones had to be turned completely off. It was repeatedly announced that anyone with an active cellphone would have it confiscated. If any images were found from the movie on the phone, then charges would be leveled against… Continue

Food allergies... wtf?!?

I've had bad allergies as long as I can remember. For the last few years, they seemed to do okay with medications. Well, I had been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome about a dozen years ago. Last year, I started having heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and some other symptoms.



A stress test came out fine. I was reading up on something recently and found that palpitations can be caused by a food allergy. Apparently, most of my other whacky health symptoms I've had for the… Continue

Atheist Nexus a Sham?

What a roller coaster of a ride it's been!



Wow.



When I first heard about the Atheist Nexus a few days ago, I thought it a brilliant idea. The fact that over 1,000 people signed up in just a few days points out that this was something needed.



Then, this morning, a revelation is posted in the forum that there is a christian site sharing fax and telephone numbers... then the finding of a prayer being submitted by the administrator just a few months ago... shortly… Continue

Shopping

So, I bicycled over to the supermarket earlier this evening. I was wandering the vegetable section when I saw this attractive blonde walk past, a baby balanced on her hip. She was probably about 23 years old and was wearing khaki shorts and a white sleeveless shirt. I glanced at her face and her expression was just dead. No emotion at all. Her expression was just flat and dead.



Something about it just screamed "abused" to me. She turned and I glanced at her left shoulder. Sure… Continue

Blogging

My first blog was a quick failure. Called, Rational Thought, it got something like 3 comments. I created it at the same time I was attempting podcasting. Boy, that podcasting thing didn't last long. It came and went in just a few months, superseded by sites like YouTube.



My next blog was on Yahoo360. I really enjoyed it. I had made a few friends off of Yahoo Answers and they carried over to the 360 site. I stopped blogging there for a variety of reasons... mainly because I felt that… Continue

Crappy Poetry

Communing with Nature

Bicycling on a country road in the middle of the day,

a grey fox pads across the road in front of me.



We both pause.



For a moment, I commune with nature and enjoy this silent meeting.

Then I realize, foxes are nocturnal and this one is dying of rabies











Obedience Training

Puppies must be exposed to other dogs

in order to socialize them.



I bit a person… Continue
