It's been a long time since I've written anything here, and if I felt like reaching into my magic hat of bullshit excuses I could blame any number of things, like writing and directing shows, or who knows what.
The truth is I've just been cowering. I've been huddled in the corner of a theological no-man's land. That place where many of us shift uncomfortably in our seats, often not wanting to speak for fear of misspeaking. It started a few months ago.
My grandfather died. The…Continue
Yesterday, I went to a wake who is a close friend of my brother's and he's sort of my friend I guess but he's closer to my brother then me because they are closer ages. I'm ten years apart from them. Anyway, when I was growing up with them and hanging out whenever I could, I got to know his family. His mom used to be a teacher aid at school, and she helped me out whenever I had trouble during studies. His brother and I used to play NES when he was baby sitting me. When I got coughed smoking,…Continue

One week ago today after getting home from work I decided to take care a few things around the yard followed by wrestling the spare tire from under the minivan to change a flat. Then it hit, my chest hurt rapid heart rate shortness of breath so I went into the the house. I sat in a the chair while my family asked I I thought I was having a heart attack? I said I don't know, this wasn't passing quickly like a few other times I had simular but not as strong feelings. After 20 minutes I…Continue

A few months ago, my mother's dog died. He was 16 years old, blind, senile, and incontinent with such bad arthritis that some days he couldn't walk, so as an adult looking at the situation, I was comforted by the fact that he wasn't suffering anymore.
My four year old daughter, however, was not.
"What's going to happen to him?" she asked me as we were at the emergency veterinary clinic (he just happened to take his turn for the worst while my mother was on vacation and I…

Money. Relationship-splintering, friendship-rending, a societal construct of sorts, that, for better or worse, is probably here to stay. No one ever has enough of it, but in the end, when the lights go down and you make your peace with everyone important to you, you can't take it with you.
I bet it would make a good fire-starter, though.
Wow. This is crazy. This is shit my grandmother had to face. Are we devolving? Is this what Iran looked like before the revolution?
This blog post stems from a reply I made to a T|A discussion about death.
The prospect of death doesn't worry me. But the prospect of physical suffering and pain certainly does. When I die, I just hope it's as painless as possible. The brevity of life doesn't bother me either. It's nature's way of telling me to enjoy myself or achieve something or help somebody in need.
The way I see it, it took hundreds of millions of years before the first stars died; coughing up…

My wife, like me, is an atheist (thank god!). When her dad was dying the last thing he asked her was to accept jesus and go back to church. She told him she couldn't do that (my wife is a stickler for the truth). My reaction was to say: you should have just agreed, it would have pleased him, comforted him, made him happy, and done no harm, since when he was dead he'd never know anyway. She said that if she had done that she'd feel guilty, and would feel compelled to at least try, though…Continue
We all know the story of Jesus and his resurrection. Woo Hoo! It's a miracle! Well, it would have to be. And not just that he rose, but that other biological processes didn't happen. So let's talk about death and what happens from the moment of death. Fair warning, this won't be pretty.
At the nearly the moment of death, Flies are attracted to your body. Shortly after death they will lay eggs in the openings of the body so that their larva can feed on the body tissues. Fly…Continue
I'm writing this post after overhearing a conversation between two psychologists on the train today. They were talking about how frustrated they are with the Israeli justice system, with its extremely lax penalties towards sex offenders.
the story one of them told was about a patient of her's - a girl, raped by her father from the age of 4 to 17. Since she was 12, the dad used to bring friends over, and gang rape her. she was afraid to testefy, but when a friend found out…Continue
A few weeks ago my father passed away. Like me he was an Atheist. Like me he had been one since he was a young man. I was six when I “became” one, or rather realized, like with Santa, the Easter Bunny,
ghosts and all, it was all made up.
So in keeping with my father’s wishes we had a non-religious funeral. I gave the eulogy. I spoke about his life. What he had…Continue
Title maybe misleading like everything else I always write because my English is not so god. My vocabulary is excellent but the way I use it is problematic. In this blog I will not talk about life after death.
Now, on to the topic.
I've been watching Real Time with Bill Maher's episode with Seth MacFarlane because I'm a big fan and I watch everything with him in it. But at the beginning of the episode (the episode in question is 2010 09 24)…Continue
