“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Watching TV Will Kill You!

So let's take a look at this for a moment...

We can't sit at work for too long, because our lives will shorten drastically.  We can't eat a high-carb diet, because we have a chance of developing a tumor in a few years, and today we find out that our Television is slowly killing us.  Geez, I think our lives are too short to worry about that kind of crap, don't you agree?  When can I start smoking again?

A team of researchers from Australia are predicting that Ryan and I will die within a few years.  No, really.  As long as our asses are sitting on the couch watching Glee, America's Got Talent, So You Think You Can Dance, True Blood, Master Chef, Dexter, and Hell's Kitchen, we will not be around much longer.  It's true!  If your ass is watching TV for more than 2 hours at a time, you're life expectancy decreases by 1.8 years and for women, it decreases by 1.5.

I guess Ryan and I better sleep less than 5 hours a day to increase our life expectancies, otherwise we're fucking screwed!

OMG Hilarious! - Debbie Downer

Former Saturday Night Live cast member Rachel Dratch skits one of the best "Debbie Downer" shows of all time.  The video below will have you rolling on the floor laughing so hard, you won't be able to get up.

For those of you who never seen the show, Debbie is a woman that can take any great situation or experience and turn it into crap with negativity, some of you might know people like that in real life.

The Spoken Word

If you've never heard of Taylor Mali, now's your chance.  And for those who love poetry, you know who he is. Here's a brief bio from his website www.taylor.mali.com:
Mali is a vocal advocate of teachers and the nobility of teaching, having himself spent nine years in the classroom teaching everything from English and history to math and S.A.T. test preparation. He has performed and lectured for teachers all over the world, and his New Teacher Project has a goal of creating 1,000 new teachers through "poetry, persuasion, and perseverance."
This morning I came across one of Taylor Mali's works, and I had to share it with all my readers.  It is really, really good.   Titled, The Spoken Word, artist Ronnie Bruce took Mali's work and created this magnificent Typography animation.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

God Help Us If Texas Governor, Ricky Perry is Elected...

Scientists are a fabric of our society.  We have what we have in our hands (cell phones), because of Scientists.  Almost everything we own in our lives is because Science was involved. 

After a reporter gives him a huge breakdown on Global Warming and his position regarding it, our Texas Governor, Rick Perry, and I use "our" lightly, claims that scientists invented global warming to make money.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that, Governor.  And keep in mind, our state has been in extreme drought for over 6 months!  As I was driving in The Woodlands last week, trees everywhere were dying, trees planted by highways dead, and beautiful landscapes gone!  Yeah, we live in a make-belief land.

Hasn't America learned their lesson by electing another dumbass from Texas?  Seriously, how much more stupid can this country get?  God help us all!
