We'll miss you, Spock :-( Live long and prosper - in our hearts
Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los ...

Thank you, Mr. President!
 
Barack Hussein Obama is probably the first U.S. president to send a handwritten note to Reddit.
President Obama sent a handwritten thank-you note to redditors for supporting net neutrality.

scam sham!
 
If you make up a group dedicated to hatred of our President and send out emails asking for money, moron conservatives will make you rich.

The GOP takes that whole "there's a sucker born every minute" thing seriously.
Sarah's gotten very wealthy from these idiots. What have they gotten from here but incoherent rants?
Just as we suspected, none of the money being given to organizations like SarahPac goes to actual campaigning. It just goes straight into the pockets of professional grifters like Sarah Palin.

The Investor-State Dispute Settlement provision would undermine U.S. sovereignty.

Please take a quick minute to read and sign.

WOOF WOOF (That's "THANK YOU" in canine) ;-)
Ricky Gervais and Judi Dench had no idea either. Watch this video to see their reaction. If this disgusts you as much as it does me, SIGN THE PETITION asking Thai leaders to crack down on the illegal dog meat trade. It took just 30 seconds and it will help save thousands of dogs from an excruciating death.

Aloofness or superiority is one of the things religions are about, they relieve that damn insecurity that more realistic world views cause.

I keep telling people (and alienating them with it) that the main feature of human intelligence is, quite obviously, that frontal-lobe-heavy dreamsy illusionism that enables and also forces us to associate changed realities from what we actually observe.

We actually find it hard or impossible to decide which saved image of reality is more realistic, and we choose the one that seems most convenient. 
THERE IS NO OBJECTIVE provable  DIFFERENCE, seen from inside. It's a natural way for the biological brain to work, can't help it, and when you have an animal with that sort of associative power, then you get this effect.

I believe that we are a freak of evolution, as this illusion-creating is basically not necessarily a good thing. However, as in the absence of free will creativity MUST BE caused by errors (of imprecise thinking, also a natural neurological phenomenon biological brains can't help committing), we profit from these unreal thoughts, as we tend to stumble on surprising solutions - call that "genius" if you will. 

And only that, coupled with Chimp-like rage, made us so successful. Rather than sheer "intelligence", because that is just not what we have. Our greatest invention isscript, only that enabled us to do science and develop complex cultures. But we had deeply deluded religions way before that.

The doctor takes the Hippocratic Oath (see below directly from AMA):

http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/physician-resources/medical-ethics/code-medical-ethics/frequently-asked-questions.page?

"What obligations does a physician have under the Hippocratic Oath?
The AMA does not have formal policy related to the Oath. Some of the tenets of the Oath represent long-standing ethical traditions that the AMA supports, while others are somewhat outdated. A May 2000 article from AMNews discusses the modern meaning of the Hippocratic Oath.
The AMA used to reprint a translation of the Oath in our Code of Medical Ethics. We still have information on the history and relation of the Oath to the AMA Code of Medical Ethics included in the preface to the Code.
Physicians may take other oaths when they begin or when they graduate from medical school. In addition, they may pledge to uphold professional standards and codes of ethics when they become members of professional associations, such as the AMA or their specialty or state medical society. For instance, every physician who is a member of the AMA must uphold the AMA’s Principles of Medical Ethics.
Because most oaths and codes are administered by voluntary associations and not by regulatory agencies (such as the state agencies that issue licenses to practice medicine), the most serious disciplinary action these voluntary associations typically can take is to expel the member physician from the association.
However, regulatory agencies that oversee physicians take allegations of unethical or unprofessional conduct very seriously, and such actions may warrant more serious disciplinary action against a physician’s license to practice. For further information on how to contact these agencies, please see the information above on how to file a complaint."

Rewriting history to be less critical? That's what Oklahoma seems to want... Oh, and to study the 10 commandments. http://ow.ly/JgLXj
In all, the bill specifies 58 "foundational" documents that must be taught to all students.

Calling out the religious bullshit for what it is. Bullshit! If you plan on pushing god, don't add me. I won't reciprocate. I am atheist and anti-theist. Do not bother me with your fairytales.
