We had a visit from Matt in 2012, out at the Great Salt Lake where we got to dance in the lake. Salt Lake City didn’t make the cut for the final video, but we were included in the out-takes. Maybe we can get him to come back?
I dance with people all over the world and put it on YouTube to show that the world is safer and friendlier than we’re led to believe.
If you’ve seen my videos and they’ve meant something to you, I hope you’ll support my new project. Here’s the Kickstarter page:
This time, YOU tell me where to go. Your pledge will count as a vote for where you live, and I’ll come out to dance in the cities with the most backers.
I look forward to dancing with you soon!
This is a time sensitive cartoon. You only have until tomorrow to watch it for the full effect.
It’s angering to imagine where we could have been by now:
This has been going around the internet, but I went to Google images, found this picture of Disney’s Pluto and played with it a little.
Come on man! The ears are even there!
Seriously though; 3 Billion miles away. I still love NASA!
UPDATE: Latest and greatest from Pluto:
UPDATE: Need any proof that spending money on NASA is better then spending money on war? Pump up the resolution the best you can with your pathetic American internet connection. DO IT!
In my opinion, you shouldn’t make shit up!
Am I being too judgmental? Am I blowing things out of proportion?
From The Washington Post:
Conservative scholars are saying that legalizing same-sex marriage will cause 900,000 abortions.
I hate getting news about Utah from national publications. I probably missed the coverage here, but I’m so tired of being made into a laughing stock when this stuff gets out. Would I be wrong to say that contortions of reality might be encouraged by trying to get the bible to say what you want it to say.
This guy is a lawyer. Maybe he’s tried to get one too many contracts to say what he wanted them to say for the sake of winning a case. My guess is that he used to work for supreme court justice Antonin Scalia, who can make any ruling conform to his political objectives. Even Scalia wouldn’t have come up with anything THIS stupid, but “Bush vs Gore” definitely made the history books as a landmark American slump in logic.
Who are these “100 scholars of marriage”? They can’t all be from Utah.
A video rebuke:
I couldn’t come up with a better April Fool joke than this.
The gag on Google Maps enables visitors to click on a Pac-Man symbol in the lower left of the screen to play the video game on whatever location is listed in the address bar. As has been happening for nearly 35 years, Pac-Man eats blinking dots while trying to elude four “ghosts” — Pinky, Blinky, Inky and Clyde.
This is just crazy!
Daylight savings time is one of my pet-peeves, because it seems like a totally unnecessary annoyance in our increasingly annoying existence. Just one more thing to elevate my blood pressure. This morning, I was watching a program I like on CBS, because it’s not as angering as almost everything else you can see on the public airwaves. It’s called “CBS This Morning” and it usually features interesting stories from almost anywhere that tend to make you feel good.
If I hadn’t called my mother last night, I would have missed the first hour of the show because I wouldn’t have remembered to set my clock forward for daylight savings.
Today’s show included one of those little factoids that you sometimes get before a station break. It said that Benjamin Franklin had originally introduced the idea of daylight savings time for the purpose of saving candles.
I always understood the time was changed to make it easier for farmers somehow, but my mom, who also dislikes daylight sayings time and grew up on a farm, says the only thing it did was confuse the cattle twice a year.
Well, the candles don’t seem worried, the cattle are still confused, and so am I.
Maybe somebody in the congress can tell us why we still do this, but I, seriously, doubt it. What could he/she possibly say?
Because they never cared about legislating from the bench anyway, if their side could win by doing that. I didn’t pose that as a question because it’s a fact.
This ACA in the supreme court challenge is a very interesting one and it puts Republican lawmakers right on the hot seat. They have been doing everything they could to kill the legislation that almost everybody seems to like, including hospitals, patients and insurance companies. Nobody’s been complaining; surely not me, who for the first time in eight years, actually has health care.
This never had to get to the supreme court and even if the supreme court decision results in millions of people losing their health care and sending the entire health system into chaos, it will be because the Republicans refuse to clarify four words in the law either before OR after the decision comes down.
Although this is going to directly effect me in a profound way, I’m going to be pulling up a chair and getting the popcorn ready.
Isn’t it usually religious folks who say people who use expletives use them because they don’t have anything intelligent to say?
This YouTube video entitled “Love Letters to Richard Dawkins” will make you laugh:
For nearly ten years and more than 1,400 episodes, Colbert remained a constantly amusing and insightful part of our national dialogue. …By embracing the absurd and truly embodying it, Colbert has made politics and public policy uproariously funny, while providing much-needed bouts of sanity for devoted news junkies.
…I doubt we’ll ever see a conservative comic, or one of any partisan stripes, deliver the kind of satirical brilliance and insights that Colbert has for the last decade.
Thanks, Steven, we needed a few laughs to keep from crying.
