Oh come on. Religious faith comes to everybody fully formed in a book. That's why it called a religion and not individual belief. It has been many many generations since anyone had to search for a new belief system. New religions (or cults and fads as they are most commonly called) are born more often out of desire for … » 4/15/14 2:20pm Today 2:20pm

I don't know if I have bitchy resting face, but one of the things my boss (the one who drove me to a breakdown) was forever telling me to do was cheer up and "try to look like I want to be here". The best time was when I was in the middle of of a day long slog trying to trace the path of an invoice she'd fucked up on -… » 4/14/14 7:37am Monday 7:37am

it's not even a joke though, doesn't even manage bad joke. A bad joke is tweeting "man, the food on those planes makes me understand why people want to blow them up" or "these Christians are pissing me off so much I can understand why people are joining Al Qaeda" your family and friends call you an arsehole and hopefully… » 4/13/14 5:37pm Sunday 5:37pm

The stupidest thing about those signs is that their sole purpose was as an alert to emergency services in case of an accident (I'm told, I should go research) so there should be one, it shouldn't be displayed unless the child is in the car and it shouldn't read "daddy's little football star" or some bulshit like that.… » 4/07/14 9:11am 4/07/14 9:11am
