Talking head bimbo insists that Jesus and Santa are white.

Sure, the modern day representations are white. But the modern day representation of Santa was created by guys in marketing.

But let's face it... Saint Nicholas was a Greek bishop in what is now Turkey. Odds are pretty good that he was not pale of skin and white of hair.

Same goes for Jesus. Even if you assume that Jesus existed, 2000 years ago, in Jerusalem, he would not have looked like this:

It's far more likely that he looked something like this:

I guess Republicans can't enjoy the holidays if their icons aren't white.

The WBC is planning on protesting at Nelson Mandela's funeral.

Apparently, they were also planning on protesting at Paul Walker's funeral, but realized that there was a 100% chance of Vin Diesel and/or the Rock kicking their ass.

I posted this on FB yesterday, but I thought I'd put it up here as well....

In 'honor' of Bill O'Reilly once again taking up the gauntlet against the "War on Christmas", I have this to say. If you're shopping, and an employee of the store you're in tells you 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas', and it offends you...

Keep it the fuck to yourselves.

The odds are good, especially if it's a national chain, that the holiday greeting is dictated by corporate overlords, who honestly do not give two shits about any harassment their employees get over said greeting.

Yes, this does happen. I worked, for 12 years, for a national chain of copy centers. (The chain's current name rhymes with FedEx Koffice.) And yes, the holiday greeting (and oh so many other things) was mandated by corporate. We could get written up if we didn't use the correct greeting. Mind you, I worked third shift, so I ignored this, but that's not the point.

Don't ask to see their manager, don't write a nasty letter. Just let it go.

And Happy Holidays.

Bill O'Reilly is taking on the "War on Christmas" again.

Because apparently, saying "Happy Holidays" instead makes Jesus cry. Or something. Hell's teeth, I don't know any more...

I swear, the shirt I bought was dark green, but I got it home and it was dark brown.

.... still a nice shirt, but is my color vision going, or my mind?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, proving that even on Thanksgiving, he can be cheap bastard of an asshole.

I'm not saying break out a seven course meal for them, but I'm pretty sure vegetarian turkey soy casserole counts as cruel and unusual punishment.

Philadelphia has banned people from making 3-D printed guns (unless you're a licensed firearms manufacturer).

Well, considering that most 3-D printers commonly available right now can't quite make guns that you're going to (a) use more than once or (b) use without seriously running the risk of the damn thing blowing up, I don't see how this is a huge concern now.

I know it's only a few minutes into the first quarter, but Tom Brady is already having a shitty game, and that makes me smile.

Update: Ahahahaha... the Patriots have fumbled on their first three possessions.

Update 2: Damnit, Denver, you had one job...

So a temporary nuclear deal with Iran has been reached. Naturally, some people are upset about it.

Honestly, Lindsey... have a fucking mint julep already and deal with your case of the vapors.

Is it a perfect deal? Fuck no. But it's better than sticking our head in the sand and pretending it will all get better just by either ignoring it or saber rattling.

You know

Florida Representative Trey Radel: Why should Toronto Mayor Rob Ford have all the fun?

For extra chuckles, he voted for Florida's welfare recipients to be drug tested before they could receive benefits.

At this point, can we really be sure that the ghost of Chris Farley hasn't possessed Toronto Mayor Rob Ford?

Saw Thor 2 (Thor Harder).... some interesting things happened at the end of the movie... Interesting indeed.

And on the way home, we passed over a possum. Not ran over. Passed over. Ugly little fucker was positioned just right.

This is a tracking website for a satellite that's going to pile into the Earth in the next day or two. It seems to require frequent reloading, probably due to people not being sure as to where exactly it's going to pile into the Earth.

So, in my D&D game tonight, the Warforged character starts investigating the inside of this ruined tower while the other PCs (and some NPCs) are nearby. He's pretty much just making sure it's safe.


So you have a 300 lb. living construct of wood, metal and crystal start falling falling through the collapsing floor. He's scrabbling on to anything he can grab to not fall who knows how far. (Well, I do, but I'm the GM.)

One of the other PCs tries to throw him a rope. I call for a to-hit roll because this is happening that fast. He rolls a 1. He throws the rope all right. The entire rope.

I let him know he can try to grab the Warforged in a 'last-ditch' attempt to keep him from falling. He manages to do so, but is not strong enough to pull the Warforged out. So he calls for help from the (strength 9) Goblin NPC to help.

Picture the scene from "Kung Fu Panda" where Mantis is holding the two ropes of the rope bridge. "WHAT WAS I THINKING?"

Only then does the Warforged remember that he can teleport.

And one of the PCs in the Warhammer game I'm in just promoted himself to Grand Theogonist (with the approval of most of the Archlectors) by smiting the previous Grand Theogonist with Ghal Maraz.

Rand Paul: If dueling were legal in Kentucky, I would challenge these charges of plagiarism..."

Look, fudge nuts, if dueling were legal in Kentucky, your ass would have already been killed because there's got to be somebody in Kentucky you've pissed off. Hell, one bell-strike to the face, and you'd be crying for your momma....

With one of the two elevator cars down for maintenance, some jackhole has been pressing all the buttons.
