I finally understand

Here it is. The proper version of marriage that is under threat from the Gay Menace is finally defined.

Holy Poop!

I can't believe this. Michael Jackson is dead! I guess I never really thought of him as a real person, so this seems really unreal to me. I just spent a few minutes clicking about on the intertron, but I still can't feel anything but odd about it.

I am a huge geek

So I was cleaning up a bit and was suddenly inspired to make the coolest thing I have seen all day. Admittedly, I spent most of the day at work or watching Die Hard 4. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the cavalry.

I feel safer already.

I love Science!

Researchers at the University of New South Wales have apparently cured blindness. They used patients who were blind in one eye, and took stem cells from their good eyes. These stem cells were put on a contact lens, and worn on the blind eye. In ten days, the damaged corneas were repaired and vision was restored. The results will have to be repeated and it may be years before this is a viable therapy, but this is fantastic news.

The wheels of progress slowly turn

New Hampshire has joined the growing number of elite states that allow same-sex marriage. Or, at least they will in January. Now I am not a huge activist for gay rights, despite the fact that I am a firm believer in them, but I can't help but feel stupidly, giddily happy when any state overturns stupid hateful laws. I'm looking at you California. I know, I know, it's a constitutional Jebus, I'm already bored. I know, but don't understand, how people can hate other people for no good reason. Yes, I'm talking about Fred "God Hates Fags" Phelps.

I understand that Leviticus 18 22 explains that sex between two dudes is totally gross. This follows the section in Leviticus 18 6-17 which is basically an exhaustive list of all of your family member which you aren't allowed to screw. All I'm saying is that in the thousands of years since this was written, morality has gotten a bit more robust. We now think that slavery is bad for example.

So yeah, treating LGBT people like they are, in fact, people is about the least we can do to be a more moral society.

Now ending rant.
