I was poking around on ebay the other day, something I do when I'm bored. My initial intent was to look up punk band stickers to adorn my laptop, and when that didn't turn up much that I liked I tried some of my favorite anime characters. Somehow - not… more »

It's nothing new to kill someone as a means of elevating yourself in the eyes of your peers. Heck gangs make it almost a mandatory rite of initiation. But what about when you kill someone years ago, hide it and *then* confess? Should you be lauded as a… more »

Just A Theory?

Just a theory? JUST? Let's say for a minute that we grant creationists that evolution is a theory that could potentially be subject to change. It's true, even if the likelihood of a major change is beyond the odds of winning the lottery. But just for a… more »

While running errands, I stop at a red light. While waiting, I notice the car in front of me has a bumper sticker, it says: "This car is a status symbol, Its a symbol that I am broke." I look at the car, about a late 80's Toyota with the rust expected… more »

You suck. I'd rather not go into details, but I discovered what I believe to be fraud. I have the card holder's name, address and a couple of merchants that have been used. I want to do the right thing, even though most people think I am nuts. I look… more »

A little googling on St.Mary's in the blog below on women refs brings up a ton of misogynistic propaganda by these idiots. This clearly isn't the first time they encountered issues with their "women are second-class citizens who can't hold property or… more »

I'm starting to believe that when a family member commits a crime, even an accidental one, that the nearest relatives should be held accountable. Why? Because if they had acted responsibly in the first place people probably wouldn't have been killed,… more »

Super Tuesday

... Can I vote for the Giants? President by committee? I think it would be a great opportunity to see Offense and Defense working together. Plus it would make State of the Union addresses a whole lot more interesting. I'd bet they'd be able to conduct a… more »
