"Hey dude! Welcome to the community! I know it's hard to believe, but there ARE atheists in the (Far) North State, not everyone's a lifted-truck-driving-bottle-blonde!"

"Wow, that was rather uncalled for. You're totally justified in taking that the wrong way, considering "drinking the Kool-Aid" is usually used as as analogy for the Jonestown Massacre and being brainwashed. From the sound of it, it…"

"I think everyone else has chimed in that your friends understanding of the term in inaccurate... But in case you need some back-up... A quick search nets one, two, three, four sites that all disagree with his understanding of the phrase."

Dave G commented on Randy's blog post 'The importance of definitions'
"I'd have gotten irked myself as, like yourself, I correlate 'drinking the Kool-Aid' with blind, unquestioning faith in something or someone without allowing little things like facts or evidence to get in the way of that belief."

Reggie commented on Randy's blog post 'The importance of definitions'
"When I am involved in friendly debates, half the debate is nailing down definitions of terms and words we are using. Language is ambiguous and very inefficient when it comes down to brass tax. Our assumptions to the meanings of words can muddy the…"

Cara Coleen commented on Randy's blog post 'The importance of definitions'

I became a little blustery, but caught myself and tried to explain why "drinking Kool-Aid" would make me angry. I have a lot of negative… Continue

Provoked gasps in sex class
