I'm an artist, educator, militant anti-theist , and I write. I gamble on just about anything. And I like beer...but I love my wife. This blog contains observations from a funny old man who gets pissed off every once in a while.

One Of My Very Own





This handy guide may help you in making your long term plans.




Lying bitch.

Who holds a pistol like that?
He learned that from watching too many gangbanger movies.

Animals: This is nice.




Conspiracy theorists are idiots. 

Modern Problems Modern Solutions




This is why I watch Bollywood.

That's one of the most over-engineered things I've ever seen.

Sgt Major Robert Blatnik, Omaha Beach, D-Day - He commanded 901 men.

This is from photographer Doug Dunbar
"I took this photo of Sgt Major Robert Blatnik 5 years ago. This was the stretch of Omaha Beach in Normandy where he came ashore on #D-Day. He commanded 901 men. Headcount 24 hours later and about 500 yards inland, they had 387. 500 yards. Let that soak in.

"... sometimes known as a "suicide headache" because many patients have suicidal thoughts during attacks."
I suffered from those for over a year. Then they just went away. Never had I endured pain like that. Totally debilitating. The doctors have no idea what causes them much less to have a cure.

The absence of them is why when I'm asked how I'm doing I say I've never been better a day in my life.

Why wouldn't he just jack his house up on stilts?

I looked at that a dozen times and I don't think a single spectator was injured. But that last young woman was very, very close.

Jeff Widener is China's best friend...his tankman picture has brought hope, tears, joy to all those who fight the good fight.



Chickens are proof that God loves us by creating a tasty bird that can barely fly.




Tensegrity table


I think that was carved out of one tree trunk.

I think that's water.


Nobody drops pianos on people like they used to and that’s a shame.





Were those packets of money or cocaine?
