It's all cake

Think of religions like cake. On the outside it looks so appealing that you just have to have a piece. The frosting and piping and elaborate decorations are the things that particular religion shows off to the world. Beautiful architecture, holidays, ceremonies and messages of love and peace. Some people window shop before they pick a cake, but most eat their parent's cake during childhood and get used to eating that particular cake and are satisfied with it. You didn't bake the cake so you a

They are your people

I am sick of seeing this ignorance passed around like its a good thing. It is not. Religious moderates cherry pick their scriptures. Religious moderates provide the platform for so called extremists (those that take scripture literally) to stand up on,*Ours is a religion of peace* They are the shield the nutters hide behind *We're not all like that*. Moderates accept no responsibility for the actions of their kind abusing, raping and killing in the name of or under the protection of th

Ignorant Assholes

I dislike people pushing their religion into secular causes, especially when religion is a main cause of the problem. One of the gay rights activist pages I support posted an image with a cross in front of the equal sign. All the self proclaimed Christians responded with praise. I wanted to puke. It is religion, their holy scriptures that are the primary force for inequality for the gay community. People who claim to be Christian and do not follow their scriptures aren't, they're cherry picker

Dodge's big Super Bowl fumble

http://youtu.be/sillEgUHGC4 There, now you've seen it too. I tried three times to watch it and couldn't get to the end, finally this morning I read the transcript to get through it. Again I was struck by how religion poisons everything. The body of the piece is homage to the hard work and rugged lives of those that put our food on our tables and its lovely. I worked dairy farms the latter half of my teens and I know the work that goes into the milk you pour over your cereal. Farmers should be

Richard Dawkins: Faith

Surrounded by a puzzling and often frightening world, people from almost every culture have come to trust in the improvable and supernatural. Here Richard Dawkins remembers when he broke with this pattern and became an atheist. http://youtu.be/Sm220Q5wks4 sadly I must put my faith in humanity and hope that there is enough good in our species to keep us going

      I think I found a new web host. If all goes well I'll transfer AC over to it sometime this month. It might have slower page loads but it'll save me money and some time since I wont have to do server maintenance / troubleshooting anymore.

      And the first ceiling fan I put up is making a noise.  I'm going to have to take it back down and adjust the damn steel mounting bracket. x_x When I did the second fan I realized I could get my phone at just the right angle to see exactly where I was mounting the damn thing. I'll have to do that for the first fan now. That'll take multiple hours this weekend. x_x

      Since the founding of Kickstarter I've only backed one project and that was Kung Fury. I recently backed two more projects. A new wallet and a retro style watch.
      I honestly don't get the whole "minimalist" wallet thing. I think it's pretty dumb actually. Before this fad even started it was hard enough for me to find a wallet with enough card slots to begin with. I have a debit card, drivers licenses, concealed carry permit, Social security card, health insurance card, dental insurance card, Kohl's card, and 3 credit cards (Visa, Master, Discover). Now that everywhere takes Visa I kinda wish I didn't have all 3, but there was a time Sam's club only took discover, and my master card was my first line of credit that just got upgraded to a mastercard when it was originally just a sears card. Anyways all in all I have 12-14 cards, and I feel like I always need them in case of an emergency. I don't carry cash, so the whole billfold that only holds 1 card... I don't know how people do it. I backed this Grip6 wallet because I've been using their belts and they're amazing. I also break belts a lot since I only use 1 for everything and I'm very active at my job. If it wasn't for the leather sleeve that increases card capacity to 14, i wouldn't have bothered. It's a cool concept. I use my debit card multiple times a day. All my cards that pay for stuff will go into the pop up slot. My lesser used cards like insurance and ID will go in the leather sleeve.
      I've also reinvigorated my love for watches. I own 3 in my rotation. I've lost my love for metal bracelet watches as I always break them, and leather I ruin from sweating at my job so much. I just ordered a canvas strap to replace a leather band actually. But I also love analogue watches. I don't like pulling my phone out to look at the time, its just easier to look at my wrist. I've always had a watch since I was 14. I'll never be one of those serious watch collectors that owns $5000 watches... thats too extreme. I stay under $400. I've been looking for something retro and classy to add to my collection.. buying real vintage watches is out of the question so I found this... but its only half funded with 27 days left so It may not become a thing.
      I'll never back a kickstarter game after all the shenanigans over the past couple of years, but recently I've found it to be a good source of finding things that no one else is making to my needs. I still did my research on the company/owner before backing, but hopefully I get two decent products. With all the crazy OT I've been getting lately I have the luxury to splurge a little.

      I installed a complicated ceiling fan yesterday. The light fixture was cheap and held in place by the ceiling drywall. I had to take it out, cut a larger hole in the ceiling, install a ceiling fan support brace and electric box.. But the real bitch was there were 4 electric lines running to this light fixture as a full junction box. I had to cut and strip 12 stiff as hell wires, and run an additional 3 wires to the ceiling fan. Also stuff all the insulation back into the ceiling while gagging on the particulates of it all in the air.. and jam all those wires into the small ass box. In the end it all worked out. Took me 6 hours. wtf. The other ceiling fans I've done for Lady's mom took me around 2 1/2 hours. 6 hours was a pain. I'll have to do it again for my office room. Same thing, 4 sets of wires, ceiling fan bracket, etc. I bet I could trim 1 hour off that 6 hours tho now that I wont have to stop to search for random answers to things again.

      As much as I am enjoying this anime season with so many good shows. Friday is just incredible. Fruits Basket, Dr. Stone, and Fire Force. Pretty much 3 of my top 4 this season. (Cop Craft battling with FB for that #3 spot). All three episodes were amazing this week. Kohaku is the ultra best girl this season. 😍 As much as a lot of people hate it, I've always been a fan of the huge eyeballs, weird faces, massive mouth, anime faces for comedy as long as it's done right. Dr. Stone nails it.
