The Earth is truly awesome

OVERVIEW from Planetary Collective on Vimeo. If there's one thing that seems fairly universal, it's the fact that going into outer-space changes you forever. Just listen to the testimonials of all these astronauts and tell me that the humbling experience of hovering over the Earth isn't a life altering experience. Seriously, I think every human being should be given the chance to feel as infinitely small as ...

God’s message to Russia: you suck

A chunk of rock from outer space comes crashing down on a poor unsuspecting Russian population, and in the wake of hundreds injured from the aftershock, a clueless bunch of clowns dressed in unfunny hats declared this to be the act of a deity who enjoys reminding his ant colony that life on Earth is fragile as shit: "I think that not only for the Ural [regions] residents, but for the whole of humanity, the ...

Phase one: Growth

This article first appeared on jacobfortin.com and I've reposted it here so hard-core members who haven't yet had their accounts activated could keep track of the progress of The 300. After only a few days and a half-assed attempt on my part to actually sell the idea of "The 300", I'm happy to say we've already reached almost 30 confirmed members in a little over a week. If we manage to keep this pace, we w ...

Jesus is my highly offensive word, yo

I have an admiration for train wrecks, and I can't imagine a greater tragedy than this rap video tastefully titled "Jesus is my Nigga". It's appropriately sung by a bunch of out-of-touch white dudes with very limited musical skills. Luckily, the whole thing is such a complete mess that it winds up being entertaining in the end. Still, I want to know: was there not some moment where a young person took these ...

Forums are back for “The 300″

As many of you may remember, TGA used to have a forum, but it made the site slow as balls (and was generally not being used enough to justify the bandwidth). I promised that as time went on, I would bring the forums back, and I have....sort of. I've actually re-launched a forum on my other site, jacobfortin.com. I've made this site the temporary home (which explains why it's so damn plain) for all things re ...

Mommy and Daddy broke up, kids

In case you haven't had the chance to listen to Episode 306 of the podcast, Carisa and I are no longer a romantic couple. I've moved back to the east coast, and despite us both being sad at this recent development, it was a mutual decision. Obviously, this has some pretty serious consequences for me, and the podcast in the future. To make up for the expense of moving again, I'll probably need to find a part ...

Steven Pinker: How Violence has Declined

If you've listened to my shows recently, you know how big a fan of Pinker I am, including his most brilliant work "The Better Angels of our Nature: Why Violence has Declined". If you haven't read this lengthy beast, this talk actually covers the basics really well. A must listen! ...

Pink Swastika author Scott Lively charged with crimes against humanity

If you don't know who Scott Lively is, he's the monster who authored The Pink Swastika, a book I've derided in the past for its pseudo-historical claim that Nazis were a secret gay organization intent on destroying heterosexuality. It ranks about as high as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in terms of historical verisimilitude. In March of 2009, Scott and a posse of other Evangelical Christians traveled ...

This woman is in serious danger

A few months ago I wrote about a major scam called "Advanced Cell Training". As the bullshit name implies, this pseudo-scientific claptrap purports to heal without the use of antibiotics or other medicine. While the specifics of this escape me (since I refuse to give these scammers even one penny), there is no doubt that encouraging people with serious illnesses - like Lyme Disease - that antibiotics are no ...

The banana is back, this time to offend gay people.

Video streaming by Ustream Not sure if you'll be able to stomach the whole thing, so I'll give you the gist of this man's argument (and I'll let you decide what he's secretly obsessed about) 1. The anus is exit only 2. Women use gadgets like bananas and other produce to simulate the male penis You should just watch this guy doing the pumping motion when talking about lesbian sex. Sure sounds to me like he's ...
