If you are a man, expect to go bald (like the man in my avatar).  Also expect to get a big belly, ear hair, chronic flatulence (no matter what you eat), and an enlarged prostate. But my dads 63 and got all his hair so how can you be so sure I will go bald? I did not say you will go bald, I said to ...

I stopped at Farmer Boys' (a family-style restaurant).  Just as I was about to leave, someone went on a rant about how Farmer Boy's was owned by Middle-East terrorists, and that I had just funded their jihad against America. (I said "As-salamu alaykum" to him and left.) Farmer Boys' is ac...

Sheldon Cooper, of course, is a walking stereotype. He irritates me; but he's supposed to irritate me. That's the premise of the show. If that is what make you happy, then who am I to condemn you for it?  I watch sitcoms -- like The Simpsons -- to be entertained , not irritated.  If I ever want to ...

Anyone could be offended by anything. You are right -- I feel offended by the character of Sheldon in Big Bang Theory, but so what?  My feelings are mine to deal with, and I do not believe that the people who made BBT were out to offend me (or anyone else). I watched a few episodes now and then, bu...

Not that I entirely trust processed veggie burgers. Of course I don't think they turn people towards Satan, but I suspect they might not all be as healthy as they're cracked up to be. I'd like to know how much acrylamide they contain, for instance. It could be much less than in a double espresso fr...

So, not only is this news over a year old, but it was obviously Mr. Azaria's own uncoerced decision. So what? So what, "So what?"? Oh Im sorry. I thought you were trying to make a point. So in fact you werent making any point. The point I made was in the statement I posted -- that the dec...

How can anyone whose entire professional career consists of working inside a 6’ by 8’ cubical ever possibly avoid solipsism in thought, word, and deed?

Right-wing pastor Rick Wiles, on his TruNews program Wednesday evening (2019-06-08), suggested that meat alternative companies are trying to create the new foods in an effort to alter human DNA in order to cause human beings to no longer being technically classified as humans -- a plot that would m...

When those 'Redneck' jokes first became popular, I wondered what was so funny about them, because J.Foxworthy was simply describing people with whom I grew up. I can relate! That was my experience, too. Yet, each joke exploits the stereotype of an ignorant white person who totally lacks sophisticat...
