      Great title, an opinion~ can you imagine the “cave man/woman” feeling and hearing thunder approaching. Darkness and fear overwhelming, imagining a reason they are being attacked from above. Tradition of fear, it’s one place humanity came from.

        I’m not sure if we ever recovered!

        No, I heard that at least half the population still follows some religion, prays their car keeps working, 🙂 they could check the oil?
        Enjoy, you have a great start

        The people from my home planet will not stand for it much longer. If changes don’t take place soon, we will unleash the giant bee people.

    I know you are asking the right questions, talking about the correct topics. So far I have liked most posts you have written – admittedly I have only just come across your blog. I hope to return on a regular basis – Keep up the good work.

    Thanks! I hope to give you good reasons to return on a regular basis.

    “There will be some inconsistencies, oversimplifications and illogical arguments in the posts ahead, please understand that they come in the effort to more clearly comprehend what the meaning of this experience of being that I (and I assume others) are having.”

    This is actually what I like about having a personal blog. The freedom to churn out half-baked ideas, explore our own views etc. When I started blogging, it was on an academic-ey group blog. I kind of liked it but, even though it was a blog, people still seemed to expect publishing quality work. People would tear you apart! It was brutal. So I gave that up and went my own way for similar reasons as you. I think by writing. Some people can talk things out, I need to write them out. And I love the construction that goes on in the blogging world. People commenting, linking to each other and engaging with each other’s thoughts . . . that’s what it’s all about for me!

    Nice to meet a reader!

    You have quite an interesting blog. I subscribed. 🙂

    This is a great blog. I notice it after the Cronos-Kate story found my attention. Haha, and being a celtics fan, I actually thought the article you wrote about Paul Pierce was hilarious. Post more stories about metal and sports, and il keep reading!

    Interesting blog you’ve got here. I look forward to reading more. 🙂 Though I may have to yell at Frank … I’m always complaining about never having enough time and here he goes adding blogs to read to my list! 😉 LOL

    I have greatly benefitted from some of your “debris” now and then. Thank you!

      No problem! Thanks for sharing the clip. These guys have convinced me that Santorum is bad for America.

    I don’t comment, or click like nearly enough, but I simply love your blog and have from the time I began reading it. It is for this reason that I’ve nominated you for the Reader Appreciation Award. Keep asking those ‘tough’ questions :).

    • #26 by Keith Spillett on August 9, 2012 - 12:03 PM

      Thanks!!!!! That means a great deal to me!!! So glad you enjoy it!

    Accidentally finding your website truly made my day. Please write a thousand more articles and make fun of everything. Thank you for existing.

    Jesus just left Chicago and he’s bound for New Orleans.
    Well now, Jesus just left Chicago and he’s bound for New Orleans.
    Yeah, yeah.
    Workin’ from one end to the other and all points in between.

    Took a jump through Mississippi, well, muddy water turned to wine.
    Took a jump through Mississippi, muddy water turned to wine.
    Yeah, yeah.
    Then out to California through the forests and the pines.
    Ah, take me with you, Jesus.

    You might not see him in person but he’ll see you just the same.
    You might not see him in person but he’ll see you just the same.
    Yeah, yeah.
    You don’t have to worry ’cause takin’ care of business is his name.

        I kid. I do love your blog. But don’t get a big head.

      He and Dwayne “The Pearl” Washington are my idols in life.

    This blog is frickin’ HILARIOUS. The ongoing King Diamond political drama is my favorite so far. Keep up the good work!

    “Danzig, who is immortal…”

    I think that says it all.

    You have been warned.

  24. #45 by peixoto one piece on July 30, 2014 - 10:31 PM

    A word of warning though, the top is more for
    the smaller girls so a C cup would probably be the largest
    you should try with this maternity swimwear. If you want to take great shots from a party, for example,
    you need take more time in watching people than in participating.

    So you can get very fashionable swimwear made from tricot.
