“Yet she became more and more promiscuous as she recalled the days of her youth, when she was a prostitute in Egypt. There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.”—Ezekial 23:19-20
Vietnam has lost its fight to save its rare Javan rhinoceros population after poachers apparently killed the country’s last animal for its horn, pushing one of the world’s most endangered species closer to extinction, a conservation group said Tuesday…Demand for rhino horn has surged in recent years among Vietnamese and Chinese who believe it can cure an array of ailments. Horns can now fetch up to $50,000 per pound (about $100,000 per kilogram), the WWF report said Tuesday. A small amount of ground-up powder can bring hundreds of dollars on the black market. Global demand has also increased in the last four to five years as some people have begun to consider rhino horn a remedy for cancer, Williams said.
“Science is the key to our future, and if you don’t believe in science, then you’re holding everybody back. And it’s fine if you as an adult want to run around pretending or claiming that you don’t believe in evolution, but if we educate a generation of people who don’t believe in science, that’s a recipe for disaster. We talk about the Internet. That comes from science. Weather forecasting. That comes from science. The main idea in all of biology is evolution. To not teach it to our young people is wrong.”—Bill Nye (via chaplinnn)
“I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright… Or maybe “stupid” is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don’t bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I… And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there’s a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots.”—Hunter S. Thompson
Ah, the old “probably it was some guy who broke into my hotel room and took pictures of me sleeping in my underwear” excuse. Medford, New Jersey mayor Chris Myers is here to fill the weekly news slot reserved for the outing of one or another garden variety self-loathing, escort-loving closeted Republican politician with a weak claim that he is totally clueless as to how a California rentboy got all those photos of Myers and his magical Superman-sized briefs asleep in a hotel bed (along with pictures of his IDs and his cell phone number). Or, uh, Photoshop maybe? Probably it was the terrorists with their Photoshop.
Two studies featuring research from Weill Cornell Medical College have uncovered surprising details about the complex process that leads to the flow of neurotransmitters between brain neurons — a dance of chemical messages so delicate that missteps often lead to neurological dysfunction.
“If being gay is a choice, show us the proof. Choose it. Choose to be gay yourself. Show America how that’s done, Herman, show us how a man can choose to be gay. Suck my dick, Herman. Name the time and the place and I’ll bring my dick and a camera crew and you can suck me off and win the argument.”—Dan Savage (responding to Herman Cain’s statement that being gay is a choice)
Contrary to popular misconceptions spread by the media, endless TV cop shows, and every other facet of the establishment, the police do not exist as vital independent safeguards of the law. Rather than crime-fighting heroes who deserve our respect, the reality is that police forces around the world help perpetuate the greatest crime possible: maintaining the murderous system of capitalism…The police force is part of the capitalist state, the set of institutions that exist to govern our lives and to enforce the rule of the rich and powerful over the rest of us. Alongside the courts, the parliaments, the military etc, the police exist to serve those who run our society.

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites.”—George Orwell 1984
Richard Dawkins:[The Magic of Reality] is a book about science. It doesn't talk about God.
Bill O'Reilly:It mocks God, I looked at it. Come on!
Richard Dawkins:Which bit have you looked at?
Bill O'Reilly:I went through that book, and you're basically saying that everything can be explained by science. Correct?
Richard Dawkins:Well, everything about the natural world can be explained by science. But where does that mock God?
Bill O'Reilly:Yeah, it basically says that these things are myths, they're not really true.
Richard Dawkins:Every chapter has myths at the beginning--
Richard Dawkins:Some of them are Aztec myths, there are ancient Egyptian myths, Greek myths, Judeo-Christian myths.
Bill O'Reilly:Whatever! Don't play these semantic games with me! You know what you're doing. You're trying to get to the kids and say, "You're an idiot if you believe in God."
Richard Dawkins:It's got nothing to do with God! I'm talking about myths from all over the world. The Judeo-Christian myth is thrown in occasionally, as one of many myths that come from around the world.
Bill O'Reilly:But the Judeo-Christian philosophy isn't a myth. It's reality.
