This is what it looks like to lose a GoPro at the bottom of a lake

Regular-reader, rock star and photographer Bill W. recently went on a mancation and borrowed my GoPro.

He recorded everything from driving in the Appalachian Mountains (naked) and hang gliding. On the last day with all the guys, they were jumping off a bridge together, and he didn’t secure the GoPro properly.

Here’s the last shot of the trip as the group jumps into a lake and the GoPro descends to the bottom … only to be found a couple weeks later by an assassin. I mean, a scuba diver.

Skip to about 0:52 if you don’t care to watch the build up … that I personally think makes it funnier.

Thundering Thursday Nooner: Convicted Felon Chuck Colson tells you how to talk sex to your children

What a failure this Chuck Colson is. He’s a thought leader for belief in this nation? Really?

Around minute 1:15, Chuck says that the biblical view of marriage is crystal clear, despite that absolutely nowhere in the bible is there a crystal clear definition of marriage.

That’s bullshit.

If there’s a market for what believers have done to sex education, it’s what this guy is doing: it’s mimicking an absolute bundle of manufactured horse shit to his constituency.

The right-wing loves to talk morality, but each one of the mouths delivering this nauseating message is so rife with hypocrisy, it’s amazing that lightning doesn’t strike them every time they talk.

As my visit to the Museum of Sex revealed, nature and human bedrooms are chockfull of sexuality that is considered deviant by the Christian right. And thank whatever god you want for it. Deviant sex is fucking fun, goddamnit, so keep your dumb hands out of my bedroom. If Chuck’s sex life sucks ass, it’s not on the rest of us to worry about it.

Chuck Colson does one thing great. He’s the poster elder for deranged lunatic.


John Barron thinks I’m an obnoxious punk

Well, he does. It’s true I guess. I’m obnoxious.

But so are you. Likely for different reasons than I am.

And Barron’s a bit obnoxious too. He’s all high and mighty about abortion and politics, but believes in a biblical god of violence and torment. It’s an amazing amount of mental gymnastics that he can pull off in a paragraph of “his opinion.”

Look how he responded to this guy Oscar Rivera’s post on Facebook:

You see that. He told the Rivera, a person he’s only met in the blogosphere and on Facebook that he thought he was gay.

Clearly it’s a stereotype. John Barron stereotyped Rivera. Stereotypes are things we all struggle with.

We jump to conclusions.

We judge.

The great thing is, John Barron is a believer and ol’ Rivera is a self-proclaimed atheist. You’ll remember Rivera from this noxious thread of evil.

A tenet of believer-ship is not judging. Admission of judgement is admitting guilt of sin. Oooooo, I’m telling’!


Point is, John Barron is a bad messenger for his cause. And seeing the above admittance of snap judgement validated that his intuition and logic is clearly bad.

He threw a little temper tantrum because he got called out for being an asshole.

I must have sinned against him 491 times already, because his Yeshua Prescribed Forgiveness Punch Card for me is all filled up. And he’s already turned his cheek too many times too.

Damn, that guy follows Yeshua’s words to a T.

Please feel free to read John’s blog here. It’s pretty …

… pretty boring.

I subscribed to it for a couple months, but I was overcome by ennui.

So I cancelled my subscription.


Biodork: Time for your flu shot!

Over at Biodork’s fun time all the time blog, she writes, “Time for your flu shot!.

Which it is. And you should go read the 14 reasons why your dumb ass needs a flu shot. Well, it’s the 14 reasons that Dr. Mark Crislip gives for getting it.

I’ve already had mine administered. I hope it works. It was given to me in the cooler of a seedy bar in one of the worst parts of town.

We did shots after the shot. Good times.

Don’t just sit there. Go read Biodork’s blog.
