The Catholic Key Blog: Atheists Need Better Liturgists.

Ok, I get the whole power of ritual thing. But I have to agree with the (presumably Catholic) author of this post. Does “de-baptism” frame your situation to make a better atheist?

Or is it all a big stupid joke like dress-like-a-pirate day?

Overheard in a cafe

Overheard: “Obama is a Muslim, and Muslims are bound to destroy the United States!”

At this point, I got my coffee refill and put back my noise-canceling headphones as quickly as I could.

The Medicare donut hole, bork bork bork!

Pharmagossip has found a video explaining the Medicare donut hole:

And in tonight’s health news segment … oh baby oh baby OH!

News segments just don’t get any more disconcerting than this. I mean, you have to wonder what Tom Brokaw was “featuring” on the segment – Viagra?

Poetic law

Not all laws have to be dry prose.

I gotta new drug

Life has been hard recently, what with some increased effort at work, sick kids, and other family efforts. However, I feel great, because I found a new drug. Now life is peachy, and I don’t suffer any more from dysphoric social attention consumption deficit anxiety disorder.

Listen to iPod, go to jail

Either he’s a warrior for a clueless, or simply wants the notoriety of proposing a stupid law targeting a popular device. Either way, NY Sen. Carl Kruger has proposed a bill to ban iPods and Blackberry devices.

A great way to zerotask

Ever wondered about those TLAs? Well onboard yourself with The Ridiculous Business Jargon Encyclopedia, and be careful if you’re homing from work. Don’t get the axe because of your hypertasking and leave a bunch of ghost work, but I do find it useful to ramp up the RDB from time to time so I can leverage file thirteen when I have to touch base with those that have gone suit F2F.

Ugh. Time for bed. I’ve been the real mucus trooper these days at home and at the salt mine. It’s questionable whether I’ve been fit for purpose, but given that I’ve been fire fighting I’ve not had much choice. I just hope I haven’t flubbed anything, as is the risk when everything comes off the back burner onto the front burner at the same time. Hypertasking was hard. (Yes, I had to repurpose that word, or was that retread?) But it wasn’t face time. I just hope I don’t have to face a Come to Jesus meeting.

Who else has a posse?

After seeing this thread along with Robusto’s derivative work of a street art campaign I saw a shirt today in the same flavor stating that Jackie Manuel has a posse. I’ll probably see another thousand or so in the next few days.


For your daily dose of surreality, be sure to check out the thread Is Barack Obama the Antichrist? thread over at apostropher. This thread now has a logo. To understand the title of this post and the logo, check out this entry at Wikipedia. And once you’ve done all that, congratulate yourself on a good waste of 5 minutes or so. Apparently there are some other threads over at the Mineshaft. And apparently this is the leading source of all Barack Obama antichrist news. You could kill a good hour, if you wanted.
