Public Enemies: Worth Looking At, Not Worth Watching

Based on the true story of a notorious depression-era bank robber, Public Enemies brings the crime spree and police hunt of John Dillinger to the silver screen. In a film that desperately attempts to provoke any emotion, Public Enemies fails to capture the imagination, create emotional dimension or shock the senses.



In 1933, during the height of the Great Depression, John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) and his crew crisscrossed the country, robbing banks and became folk heroes. During an… Continue

Carnival of the Godless

I don't know how many people here follow a lot of blogs (I know Nelson does, and Syn, and some others), but for those who may not, I thought I'd point out a blogging event known as the Carnival of the Godless.



The Carnival moves from blog to blog, being hosted at a different one each time. It consists of a collection of links to various blog posts, submitted by bloggers to the host. It servers a couple worthwhile… Continue

Ancient Death-Smile Potion Decoded?

James Owen

for National Geographic News

June 2, 2009



Thousands of years before the Joker gassed comic book victims into a grinning death, Phoenician colonists on the island of Sardinia (map) were forcing smiles on the faces of the dead.



Now scientists say they know just how the ancient seafaring traders created the gruesome smiles some 2,800 years ago—not with a toxic gas like Batman's nemesis but with a plant-based… Continue

Blu Cigs - The Electronic Cigarette

http://blucigs.com/





I got my starter kit in yesterday. At first I was unsure of the amount of nicotine I was taking in as I inhaled the water vapor. I didn't feel like I was getting what my craving was needing but I found out that it was just an alien feeling that I'll just have to get use to. I smoked a real cigarette shortly after & felt the nausea feeling one gets when they've… Continue

I don’t care that Jesus Christ died 2009 years ago!

Main article.

Our countries forefathers establish a strong first amendment to keep the right to free speech and the separation of church and state protected regardless of the government’s position or religious influence. Since then the United States has been greatly influenced by the Christian religion to a point where the United States has: In God we trust on our dollar bill, non-believers can’t hold public office in many States, gays aren’t allowed martial benefits in many states,… Continue

I'm sorry? Did I register for Theology?

I apologize if this blog is scatter-brained. My mind is racing and I am still seething from class this evening.



I started my Biology of Human Sexuality class last Wednesday. Right off the bat I wasn't a fan of my professor. She doesn't seem to know the material. She answers questions like a politician, she simply skates around the initial question and gives back a bunch of BS. When explaining a process...she literally ends it in "blah blah blah". I find this irritating in a normal… Continue

Drank you very much!

I'd drink it if it tasted good and the calorie count was low. Probably for no other reason, though...

It has to be better for you than sodas, right....?

Imagine..

I'm interested in hearing some opinions, serious or otherwise, what the world would be like if there WERE a real GOD. ..All religious scripture would have to be rewritten so it makes sense for one thing..

Respect to Dead People and Life

While browsing ThinkAtheist, I encountered a blog post that called my attention; it was this one, called "Billy Mays... Dead. Four "Celebrities" in a week WTF". While the post itself had nothing wrong in it, the comments seemed more controversial, including jokes about Billy Mays that I considered to be bad tasted. Reggie Hammond replied: "Respect the dead? Why? Will they haunt me? No,… Continue

Faith of the faithless

This, and so much more, was also posted over at my blog, Cubik's Rube.




Let's own up to a dark and terrible truth.



We atheists all know that we have just as much faith in unproven superstitions as the religious people we so gleefully despise. I mean, secretly, we're all well aware that our beloved "science" is just another way of seeing the world, dependent on at least as much blind belief as, say, fundamentalist… Continue

Dismal. Very. Dismal.

I've been writing for a long time now. My track record is damn good. I've never been rejected for a piece (though I haven't always gotten my first choice publisher.) It's been smooth sailing. Pretty much I write something, send out a query or pitch and then it goes away. A check comes in the mail to replace it. Yay.

Now, I've never attempted something as big as a book before. Frankly, the prospect of writing one was pretty terrifying. I've gotten over it. Book is written and now in the… Continue
