Heh, must've taken the guy forever to do this.
I. 10-27-08 Dianetics
Got a little postcard brochure in the mail advertising Dianetics. Gotta love scientology for trying to fleece you of crazy amounts of money just to let them teach you to think positive and have good self esteem.
I. 10-24-08 Entrepreneurship
Mark Cuban may be a douche, but sometimes he makes sense. The bit about small business is insightful, as well.

I. 9-28-08 Election '08
Just wanted to add some good links relevant to the elections this year.
Ebert's take on the debate. (I watched the whole thing, he is dead on).
What the fictional president Bartlet would offer to Obama as advice (absolutely brilliant).
Tina Fey's impression of Palin during interviews. Fey's performance is less caricature than actual embodiment. But therein lies the problem: this sketch is less a satire of Palin's interview than a reenactment of it. When the source material is already so absurd--as so much of American politics is today--does satire become obsolete? It's scary how true that is.
Krugman's piece about how McCain is completely over his head about economic issues.
The Zakaria piece on Palin.
I. 9-26-08 What Can $700b Buy?
Apparently, a lot. Your tax dollars...not at work. And here's a more entertaining list (albeit not as practical).
Oh, and another summary about the subprime mess, this time from Forbes.

I. 5-10-08 Holy Water
Yet another reason to hate on mainstream religion...
"Church is on Sundays, but people need something to help them through the week."
"You drink it, and you just feel like you are in church."
"The Formula J' variety carries the image of Jesus in a crown of thorns and the Fatima prayer: "Oh My Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls into heaven, especially those in need of the mercy. Amen."
"Bible Gum promises consumers they can chew their way to spiritual enlightenment. Each box comes with a scripture verse."
Um, this is water. From Santa Ana. Omfg.

I. 2-10-08 107,000 Demand Wikipedia Remove Muhammad Image
The real gold is in the comments, tho.
-So why doesn't he just break the fucking pinata and be done with it?
-I'd want it taken down too, if it was revealed that the founder of my religion was actually Pat Morita with a beard.
-That's a depiction of the miracle where Muhammad conjured a special magical chair allowing his mother-in-law to get up and down stairs in spite of her arthritis.
-Why does his audience look so worried? Is that a stick of dynamite he's holding?
I. 2-7-08 "I Could Care Less"
Being a total English language nazi, I always die a little inside when I hear people use the above phrase. Suddenly, I was reading a Fark thread and found this gem. Ohhh so happy right now.
