About Me

My photo
I'm an artist, an educator, Pastafarian and I write. I also will gamble on just about anything. And I like unusual juxtaposition, but I love my wife...and beer. This blog is observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while. Oh, and I mispell alot.

Mason Jar is a bar in New York City that is a magnet for Gamecocks fans. My brother-in-law was there to watch the Cocks smack down of Baylor last night.

LIES, DAMNED LIES, AND FAKE NEWS

We all lie. It's a very handy tool for getting what we want.

Some lies we believe sound so ridiculous that most people can not understand how they could be taken seriously.

I have stated previously that I do understand how it helps in the grieving process.
But in Christianity, there are so many holes in the narrative that simply can't be adequately explained. Consider the belief that Grandma is waiting for you in heaven. When you get there you will recognize her.

Living with the thought that a dead love is still with you must be a powerful delusion...almost predictable in human evolution. Can't deal with an overwhelming lose? Just pretend they are still there. Perfectly understandable. You Mom is in heaven looking down on you? Okay. If it helps you cope with the inevitable death of our life cycle, then make something up to ease you through it. But please don't teach my child that.
But back to the rapture image above and you go to heaven naked, so when you get to heaven is the first thing you do is be issued a robe? 

I have noticed that people with strong agendas lie the most. My internet sites are flooded with black pride "facts" like the following.


Wow. Those leave me speechless.

We are bombarded with misinformation for reasons that just seems silly.
(Hey, man, I was beating my kids LOOOOOOOONG before I ever got tattoos)

Now for the reason I made that post:
The system of information dissemination is not broken. It is doing precisely what it is meant to do. And that is to confuse you to the point of giving up...feeling like it is impossible to discern the truth because it is just too difficult. Think that plan is not effective? Explain the "controversy" of climate change...or vaccines. There are sides to those two issues who will claim that there is equal "proof" for the pro and con, which there certainly is not.

Believers in the Shroud of Turin will point to the lack of conclusive proof even after allowing it to be carbon dated, which proved it could not date from biblical times. The same could be said for those believing that we are visited by aliens regularly and that the moon landing was faked.

Presently, we have a president who is himself issuing false "news", further adding to our befuddlement. And with befuddlement we turn in desperation to the news sources that will only strengthen our present views.

Skewed Photographic Landscapes by Aydin Büyüktas


That last one reminds me that a stone's throw from the University of South Carolina's football stadium there is a train assembly complex bigger than the one above. That it is within the city limits is perplexing enough, but that any train heading west or north has to travel directly through the city is completely, totally unbelievable. 
An article in the local paper said that Columbia is only one of six cities that allowed long, long trains to interrupt traffic at all hours, including rush hour. I have waited for 17 minutes for a train to clear a crossing; caused due it not being able to get up to speed, being so close to the marshaling yard.
Bummer that.

What’s the best way to motivate a baby to crawl? Ask someone she adores to stand where she can see them, just out of her reach. Now imagine that the baby is a prehistoric fish, and her loved one is a teeming mass of mouthwatering bugs.
That’s the controversial theory published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences: that the sight of the smorgasbord available on land inspired early vertebrates to grow legs and get out of the water.

In the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games, Nadia Comaneci, only 14 at the time, became the first gymnast in Olympic history to be awarded the perfect score of 10 for her performance on the uneven bars. She later went on to earn 6 more perfect 10's and five Olympic Gold Medals. Here is the routine that earned her that first perfect score.

Sorry for the split gif, it couldn't be made into a long one without the frame rate suffering.

I was in high school before I figured out I wasn't going to disappear from earth and end up in heaven. My church had the third Sunday night of the month dedicated to the book of revelations and end time prophecies. (Revelations is easily my favorite book of the Bible) Everyone is paranoid. It is really sad.

The lady in the hospital bed voted against Clinton because of the emails...sealing her fate for losing affordable health care.

I'm guessing that the man in the bed who no longer has health insurance coverage is supposed to be someone who voted for Trump because of the Clinton e-mail scandal.
