This email conversation between a public school “Christian volunteer” and an atheist parent is hilarious. Do click the link.
While this is funny and all, my GOD is that parent being insufferable. Just sign the permission slip. If you don’t want your child indoctrinated with religious teachings, don’t send them to a parochial school.
Jesus, you guys, I’m sorry. I can’t help being a little bitch today.
That parent is insufferable.
EDIT: I just realized you used insufferable too. But really, he is.
Have you ever been watching TV or a movie and pointed to the screen and said, “Hey! It’s That Guy!” Well, here is where you’ll find him. This page is dedicated to the character actors collectively known as “That Guy”.
In Robert J. Sawyer's science fiction novel, FlashForward, everyone on earth received a brief glimpse of the future—including a peek into the future of bookstores. The novel has been adapted into an ABC television show that airs tonight.
Here’s an excerpt from the 1999 novel, as Sawyer (pictured) imagined what a bookstore would look like in ten years: “[T]he rest of the facility was taken up by individual copies of titles that could be printed on demand. It took only fifteen minutes to produce a single copy of any book, either in mass-market paperback or as an octavo hardcover … In a brilliant bit of preadaptive evolution, book superstores had been building coffee shops into their facilities for twenty years now—giving people the perfect place to spend some pleasant time while their custom books were printed.”
Perhaps the biggest difference between the male and female brain is that men have a sexual pursuit area that is 2.5 times larger than the one in the female brain. Not only that, but beginning in their teens, they produce 200 to 250 percent more testosterone than they did during pre-adolescence.
If testosterone were beer, a 9-year-old boy would be getting the equivalent of a cup a day. But a 15-year-old would be getting the equivalent of nearly two gallons a day.
There is a lot of interesting information in this article.
That D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince hotline got my brother into SO MUCH TROUBLE! I still remember how mad my mom was when she saw the phone bill. You didn’t have to enter a credit card number to get charged, they would just add it to your phone bill.
