Wooohoooo!!! It’s Thursday!
First of all, my big news is that The Good Men Project selected two of my articles earlier this week to publish. For all intents and purposes, this is what I would consider my first “published” work. (Unless you count all those terrible blogs I ran at one time or another. Ick.) I’m super-excited about it and I love the message that this site, in particular, puts out. It’s a pretty frank discussion of what being a man means in the modern world. It’s redefining the masculine in a way that will hopefully eradicate the macho posturing and misogynist attitudes of men still “living” in the 1950’s. I’m 100% down for all the dudes out there to stop acting like assholes and start acting like they’re human, with emotions and compassion and a marshmallow crème filling. You should definitely check out the website.
I found out about this kid named Max Loughan this week. This kid is a genius. I’m not just saying that either. This one is going to be the next Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, or Stephen Hawking. In this video, he explains everything from multiple universes to his take on god. I’m so very impressed by him. I’ll be paying attention to him. If anyone can give me superpowers, this is the guy. Check him out and give him some support! We need more kids like this!
Apparently, we’ve also found a new exoplanet orbiting the closest star to our own that may be habitable. This is really exciting for a bunch of reasons. One, we’re getting a lot better at finding these planets and it’s obvious that planets orbiting stars are a common thing. That means there’s a pretty good chance that at least one of them out there harbors intelligent life besides our own. Second, this one is close enough to us that we will be able to collect hard data sometime in the relatively near future. Third, it’s an alien world and that shit is cool as fuck! Yay, science!
Courtney Act, a drag queen you might remember from Ru Paul’s Drag Race, visited a Trump rally. As you can expect, the intelligence level of the attendees was astronomically low. They didn’t even realize they were talking to a drag queen, someone who they should automatically hate because of reasons. I particularly liked the part of the video where the guy takes off his “Make America Racist as Fuck Again” hat to find that it’s made in China. Every time I see a video of Trump supporters, I’m reminded of why we probably should enact some sort of breeding program.
Also, Texas is at it again, blocking protections for Transgender kids. How you become an entire state stacked full of assholes, I’ll never know. I like how all the religious nuts out there think that persecuting people they don’t agree with is a godly thing. I’m sure Jesus would be all about saying fuck you to everyone, right? I mean, don’t you remember this part of the bible…
From the Pigs Wanna Blow My House Down department, police have killed 756 people so far this year, a large part of which are minorities. Great job guys and gals! I’m so fucking proud that you’ve perfected the art of murder without consequences.
Nah, just kiddin’. Fuck you.
That’s it for today. Thursday will be my regular blog publishing day with my thoughts on the week. I’ll post other things as well, I’m sure. Some weeks will have more, some less.
I’d also like to say to all those religious people out there that think I must just hate you because you believe in something I don’t? Nope, don’t hate you even a little. My problem is with the loud douche canoes that claim to be of your religions and spread hate. I’m not down with that, but if you want to have a calm discussion on religion with me? Please don’t hesitate. I promise I won’t attack.
Until next week, my freaks and geeks. Stay saucy out there.
