Celestial Coordinates

altitude-azimuth I must go down to the seas again,

To the lonely sea and the sky.

And all I want is a tall ship,

And a star to steer her by.


~ John Masefield



Suppose you lived in olden times and you joined a fleet of wooden ships and iron men. Or maybe it's wooden teeth and dirty old men. Whichever. But if you didn't know the basics of using a star to steer a…

"Please Help Us Take Back America from the Godless Left - and Buy our Stupid DVD."

I got an automated call today from a stupid far-right fundraising crowd claiming to be behind Newt Gingrich. I'm disappointed the whole thing was automated... I REALLY wanted to have fun with these morons.

"We have reserved a copy of our DVD Documentary "Bringing America Back to God" (or something like that... I don't remember what it was actually called) so that you can help us to fight back against the power of the godless left and teach children the truth about why god was central…

Texas can’t catch a break.

(Cross-posted from my actual blog, hosted by the good folks here at Think Atheist!)

When it comes to its education standards, Texas has had a lot of bad luck these last few years.

Whether they were contending with a willfully ignorant dentist whom Texas Governor Rick Perry somehow thought was qualified to chair the State Board of Education (SBoE) and who…

Boredom Redux

So just yesterday I posted on the forums (which I learned was the wrong place to post [Thanks Robert! :P]) that I was bored.



"None of my peers seem to offer me intellectual stimulation. I grow bored with their conversations (I realize how haughty that sounds, and I don't intend any egocentricity). I can no longer distract myself with YouTube or my Xbox. I need real, interesting, substantial, intellectual stimulation! Anyone care to help me out? Skype me or something.… Continue

TSBOE Votes on Texan Curriculum Standards

Today, the Texas State Board of Education voted on curriculum standards of social studies for the Texan public school system. As I am sure most of you are aware, these standards will affect many other states as publishers will often tailor textbooks specifically to meet Texan requirements. This vote followed several days of debate as final amendments were proposed.



Cynthia Dunbar, one of the strongest voices for the SBOE's conservative voting block, decided that a nice, long… Continue

Maine, Marriage Equality, and Lessons

Several friends and a number of my YouTube subscribers have asked me to weigh in on the electoral success of Proposition 1 in Maine, which repealed a statute enacted by the Maine legislature and signed into law by its governor that extended the legal right to marry to same-sex couples in the state. 53% voted to repeal the statute, 47% voted to retain it – a result similar to the 2008 vote for Proposition 8 in California (52% in favor, 48% against), but well short of the trouncing same-sex… Continue
