Sorry about the scarcity of the free ice cream today, but I just haven’t felt up to it. Or much of anything else, actually.

But I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe. I like even more the fact that people who can’t answer that question piss him off, because they piss me off too.

You can have any point of view you like, as long as you can come up with a better reason than “because I do” for holding it. If that’s the best you can do, then I have no use for it. I can get that from a parrot or a rock, although I’d have to paint the opinion on first in the latter case.

And Mr. Freeberg seems to think the same way, so please welcome him to the Dept. of Common Sense.

    DU has some pretty funny explanations of why people believe what they do…or at least why people who believe differently from them.

    And they are, quite predictably, “evil”, “brainwashed”, and “stupid”.

    I wish life were so easy to explain.

    Thanks, Beth :)

    I’m OK, I guess, just getting a bit frustrated trying to find a way to hold the creditors clawing at the door at bay until the drought ends and my “obvious” talents are recognized and employed in a gainful manner.

    Oh well… This too shall pass :)

    Well, when you eschew the mask and cape in public, using the Force to choke the life out of some bastard who deserves it is not only far less impressive, but it frequently mistaken for a natural occurance.
    :lol:

    I know about debt. I can sympathize.

    Cheer up, Your Highness. Just sent you a quick note about my new post extolling your virtues. Clearly, my pitiful skills are no match for the power of the Dark Side, and in time I shall call you Master.
