Maybe Pat was talking to Satan

I wonder if Pat Robertson remembers this little gem from back in January, when he claimed God told him in advance that Obama was going to lose the election...which he of course did not. If I was him, I'd just pull the same stunt Mohammed did whenever he was caught making a bullshit prediction: just blame it on the devil. He's the go-to guy for all your lame excuses: did you cheat on your wife? The devil mad ...

Maryland gets Marriage Equality

I know the big news story today is President Obama being re-elected, but I hope this bit of news doesn't get buried under all the brouhaha: it seems as though the tiny state of Maryland has legalized same-sex marriage by approving "Question 6" on the ballot. Now, before you celebrate this victory, you should know a few important details: Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian ...

Go Vote, or Else…

OK folks, this is it: after months and months of the presidential election campaign eating up valuable news real-estate, it's now time for you to exercise the limited choice you have and cast your insignificant voice into the choir of madness that is the electoral process. As you may well know, over 80% of my audience is from the US, which means I have a huge stake in this election. Already over the past 3 ...

Site Changes!

Alright, after spending the whole day free of the forums, the increased speed and reliability has nailed it: TGA forums are no more.

I'm now trying to get facebook comment integration instead, since it's what all the kids are using these days. I've also added the option for Hard-C ...

Thinking of ditching the forums

Remember when I finally succumbed to fan pressure and spent days setting up a forum for you guys? My original opposition to the idea was that the site still lacked the necessary interaction and involvement from fans to make the venture worthwhile. There's nothing more I hate in this world than an empty and dead forum, and right now, that's what we've got. With the plugins making the site more sluggish than ...

Gary Cass is a hilarious bible-nut

Here are some of my favorite ridiculous tropes: 1) Harvard University is Jesus' #1 enemy, because there's learnin' going on there. 2) America apparently elects people that like killing babies (he may be referring to abortion, but I think their ICBM's do a better job. 3) You can't be a good Christians unless you can instantly kill somebody with a gun. 4) Secular progressives have abandoned God (that's why th ...

Carl Sagan’s “Meat Planet”

Little known fact about the meat planet: while there's an abundance of pork and beef, there seems to be a mysterious lack of chicken or fish. Are we to assume that such a large body of protein could have formed without attracting the lower gravity poultry in its orbit? Could coalescing chicken have a greater density than its bovine counter-part? Perhaps we shall never know... ...
