This is totally off question but I would like to be added to the Philosophy Club. Eric originally invited me and gave me a code off which I forgot 1 or 2 letters or numbers. I had just had major back surgery and was not in very good shape. As it is now, it's only been 4 months since the surgery. However I much better off.
Some background: at the age of 17, I enlisted on the US Marine Corps and spent my 18th year, 1967-1968 in the Marine Infantry in Vietnam.
Returning from war, I was very angry about the waste of life on both sides. I went to college where I promptly joined SDS, getting myself arrested at the Black Panther shoot out In South-Central LA.
I went on with my studies receiving both a BA and MA in Philosophy from Cal State. University, LA. Metaphysics has always intrigued me, especially coming close to death many times in Vietnam. After searching the different religions, I adopted Buddhism and spent 3 years as a Buddhist monk in Taiwan.
Kant and Nietzsche are my particular favorite philosophers. I am also very interested in Philosophy of Language and most of the areas of philosophy, with the exception of aesthetics.
I hope I qualify for the club, especially as my health has improved and I will again have an opportunity to use my reference materials to hopefully, contribute meaningfully to club discussions.

So I've been reading a lot about animal rights lately as I've had a couple friends insist I didn't know enough about the issue. I must say I'm glad they did. After seeing how bad animals have it I've decided to become a vegan.

Loveliest of Trees, The Cherry Now by A.E. Housman

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.

Hi, I'm Cory.
Introduction
I'm am the producer and host for The Geek Guides podcast. We help people to learn about nerd culture and find new things that may interest them. 

I'm a skeptic and an atheist. I have complex political opinions but I guess call me a libertarian.

My primary goal for Google Plus is to have my posts be an open discussion. I ask a lot of questions and I like hearing as many different answers as possible. I think any outlook that shuns discussion is distasteful. I also think that if something offends me it was probably something I should see, because clearly I haven't thought about it enough. 

Bragging rights
Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain. -Friedrich Schiller
