real horrowshow said: And Saruman turns out to be killable. A bloody Balrog can't take out Gandalf, but his fellow Istari can be offed by a disgruntled former employee with a knife?

Dave Silverman is in the shit again on Twitter. His Follow Friday recommendations mixed the Awesomely Righteous with Evil Shitlords . Poor guy still won't accept that one side of the bridge he's building goes to Cuckoo Land. Surly Amy demanded an apology and got it: https://twitter.com/MrAtheistPan...

The fact that the debate raised money for AIG was Watson's only point that Bill Nye didn't demolish himself, and its as stupid as her other points. Because AIG is sinking like the titanic. The creation museum is suffering from declining attendance(1) Ken Ham's "Ark Encounter" theme park is strugglin...

Re: Mykeru, what a Cnut, eh? Discuss.

Some of us have wondered what Nerd of Redhead really looks like. I once pictured him as a kind of deranged Mussolini (who himself was already deranged, making Nerd deranged squared). Turns out I was not too far off. 2 February 2014 at 3:41 pm (UTC -6) Link to this comment Nich #360 about the death ...

For the 10 millionth time APlussers are blowing indignant about whites "appropriating" dreadlocks. http://atheismplus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5826 So, I'd like to know: why don't they ever come down on Mohawks? Dreads and feathered headdresses are bad, but Mohawks are okay because their hips...

Re: Mykeru, what a Cnut, eh? Discuss.

Every few years a scientific paper is published with implications so important (if confirmed and extended by subsequent research) that it is immediately obvious that the author is going to get a nobel prize. One such paper came out today in Nature. http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v505/n7485/fu...

Re: Mykeru, what a Cnut, eh? Discuss.

:lol: It's extremely hard to escape the cult. Outside is a cold world without pouncehugs, without pseudonymous friends who claim to love you, without the presence of Peezus, and, worst of all, without a steady supply of outsiders who can be abused with impunity. Caine tried to step outside, but fai...

Hmmm...Shermer posted this on Twitter a few minutes ago. http://i.imgur.com/SX0uPD0.png I hope that means what I hope it means... :) O.o . . . Seems odd that he would be talking about THAT issue if it doesn't. Especially in those terms. I wonder if Myers will take to the internets and say something...

Re: Mykeru, what a Cnut, eh? Discuss.

Is Sarkeesian really known among gamers/geeks? I'm someone who is very interested in gaming/geek culture, who is also very interested in feminism, and has frequent conversations with those who have similar interests. Yet, Sarkeesian's name, in all my years, has not come up once. I only know of her ...

I skimmed that post and Caine is doing an awful job of not being a monitor and also this little gem from the Cranky post (snip) Did Caine lose her monitor status somehow? Regardless, I don't think I can recall Caine ever being in a mode other than full PC police. I've not been keeping up on the Pha...
