I don't do St. Patrick's Day

I am currently wearing blue (I'm just trying to be neutral, though blue was the national color of Ireland for centuries), and I will not be drinking today.

For the religious aspects of St. Paddy's day, I can't justify celebrating the idea of a man who drive out some snakes off an island... oh wait, that's right, they weren't actually snakes, they were the Druidic Pagans and other undersirables of Ireland including atheists, homosexuals, and probably Romani and Jews.

Even beyond that, in the modern sense anyone who wears green is really just saying they support the Catholic side of the clan wars that have been going on in Ireland for centuries. If you're Protestant, you're supposed to wear Orange today stupid.

Lastly, there are all those who say "Oh, just celebrate the secular parts." Oh, what, like drinking? Because that's "What Irish people do" Nice stereotype. Yeah, that's surely something I can get behind. Besides that, beer's gross.

At least I can find something in some of the other religious holidays (and there origianl intent) to get behind.
Christmas - Yeah, the days are finally getting longer, winter's almost over, lets exchange presents and try to be happy in the midst of this crap.
Easter - Yeah, the sun finally fucking came back, it's warm again, there's food to hunt, let's celebrate.
Valentine's Day - Even this one is okay, at least St. Valentine was trying to (supposedly) marry people who wouldn't normally be allowed to marry under pagan laws because they were Christian. Now, this was when Christians actually were a repressed minority, and good for him for standing up to it. If only Christians could think of this today and see the homosexual POV.

Anyway. I don't do St. Patrick's Day. If anyone can find something actually whorthwhile in the secular stance, let me know.

World Nut Daily update

Holy flaming Christ on a Pogo-stick! The world atheist community and World Net Daily are actually in agreement on something. For completely different reasons of course, but still; someone check the themometer for Hell, is it getting drafty down there?

The UNs "ban" on blasphemy had finally caught the attention of the religious media. Now, they think this is bad because, of course, then they think they won't be able to "preach tha' gospe' and th' name o' the lawd" in them heathen countries anymore. Really, they aren't welcomed there anyway (but neither are atheists). This won't change much.

Whatever. The more people up in arms over this retarded shit the better. It just feels a little icky to be on the same side about something.

Librarians Playing at work is, apparently, stealing from the taxpayers

Ok, first, here's the "news" item.

With the video if you really want to watch, they're just playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band or something...

“Action” 3 News is so stupid. And so was this guy who “turned them in.”

Oh nos, librarians were playing a video game… just like our own librarians did not too long ago in the basement here at Kent. Oh nos, they bought a game system to help bring the teens in, like hundreds of other libraries have done for years; yeah, it’s sitting in a closet. It was expensive, they’ll only bring it out for special programs.

Oh wait, there’s more.

Oh nos, they spent money on land in Second Life, you mean just like the Library of Congress and countless other government agencies have done, including the FBI, CIA, WHITEHOUSE.

And that last one is just idiotic, they spent money to go to a conference!!!! They’re complaining about that?! Really?!

Nebraska: No, we don’t want any of our state employees to learn anything new, how dare they.

When this idiot Kevin first saw this, he should have turned to his son and asked his opinion. When his son said, "Hey, that looks cool, let's go to the Library" then he would have known why it was happening. When his son actually asked, "Is that bad?" should have been the tip. His son didn't think it was bad, AND IT ISN'T.

Stupid, fucking, Nebraskians. No... that's not fair. Stupid fucking Kevin Paladino; stupid fucking State Auditor Mike Foley, and stupid fucking Liz Dorland and Action 3 News for actually thinking this is news.

New fossil found


Well, no, not really. It's a fossil of a giant toothy bird from the Pelagornithidae family. Paleontologists have known about them for decades, but they're hard to find because the bones are hollow like a bird. Look at the jaw on that thing though.

This is Tiktaalik. He is an example of a true Transitional Fossil. He has both fishy and lizardy parts. I really don't know what more fundies want.
