"Travelling can be enriching and inspiring, especially if you’re in a place you haven’t been before. Whether on vacation or travelling for business, one of the first things that people usually do, including myself, after arriving in their hotel room, is turn on the lights (even if daylight is still coming through the windows), jump on the bed to feel how comfortable it is, walk to the window, and admire the view. If you like what you see, sometimes you grab your camera and take a picture, regardless of reflections in the window."
The biggest buildup in history to the 90-second process of signing up for a free Twitter account has now come to an end, as famous World War II German soldier and anti-gay marriage activist "Pope Bendict XVI" finally has another Twitter account. His name, on Twitter, is @pontifex, which is a portmanteau of … who knows, something about "penis." All the good Twitter handles are taken. Where's your god now, Joseph Ratzinger?
We tried to find this new account, @pontifex, by searching on Twitter. But it doesn't appear to exist, yet? Maybe it's not "live." Pope's got to roll out slowly, we suppose. So he doesn't [...]
You know how something happens and you look at Twitter (or learn about it from Twitter) and people are going insane within seconds of finding out about this news that probably doesn't even have anything to do with their lives or industry? How do people get wildly upset about something they just heard about? Isn't that the job of bloggers?
This is now a proven aspect of Twitter. The Pew Research Center studied Twitter users and found "the reaction on Twitter to major political events and policy decisions often differs a great deal from public opinion as measured by surveys." And they're not just excitable and wrong, they're also [...]
When you die in the ER, if you are an organ donor, your organs are not harvested! But now an emergency room-based project, funded by the organ-craving socialists at the Department of Health and Human Services, promises to steal away your organs before you are even brain dead, so as to save other people who need your kidneys and things. There are "questions"! From "some" who think ER doctors "might not do everything possible to save patients and may even hasten their deaths, to increase the chance of obtaining organs." Yes. That's how ER doctors are. Just ready to kill you for your eyeballs. Also? "Experts" are concerned that [...]
What's the pope up to, this Christmas? Oh, just rallying the world's other intolerant religious leaders against the global menace of gay people registering at Macy's. Nothing says "Peace on Earth and good will towards men" like a yuletide jihad against same-sex marriage—because if there's anything the story of Christ's birth teaches us, it's to stigmatize and then attack people who lack legal and societal protections.
Pope Benedict on Friday signaled the Vatican was ready to forge alliances with other religions against gay marriage, saying the family was threatened "to its foundations" by attempts to change its "true structure."
The pope's latest denunciation of gay marriage came in [...]
