I want to talk about intellectual curiosity.

Remember the story of the baby elephant and his insatiable curiosity?  Supposed to be a cautionary tale, but when I was a kid and first heard this story my take-away was that this kid, this questioning, curious kid, used his inquiring mind to ask enough questions to cause himself some pain (the learning process is frequently painful) but gained something fabulous in the end.

The ability to spank his elders, and anyone who would try to hold him in the dark.

Always question.  If my message is not clear to you then maybe you are missing something other than information – maybe you are lacking perspective.

If you do not understand what someone is saying to you, or why they are saying it – try finding more information about that person and what has brought them to the place where they stand and talk to you.

Or you could just open your mouth like a baby bird and cry ‘feed me!’

The more I think about this, the more steamed I get.  I blame this lack of wonderment for so many of the social ills we suffer from.  Too many of us will sit passively, accepting whatever we are fed so long as that presentation is authoritative.  Truth?  Why should we doubt?

Has it somehow become (again) sinful to question, to doubt? Hasn’t this behavior led us down dark paths before?  Should we ever willingly accept BECAUSE I SAID SO (A MATTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY/IT’S WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE/THAT’S JUST THE WAY IT IS DONE) as an answer to ANYthing?  I say no.

Ted Sturgeon said – always ask the next question, until there are no more questions to ask, and then maybe, just maybe, you will have arrived at some kind of truth.

On May 7, 2010, Curtin placed second in the Jeopardy! Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational, winning $250,000 for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.

The final Jepardy answer was: In 1949 this kingdom dropped the word “Trans” from the beginning of its name.

via Jeopardy

Michael McKean was in the lead with $12,000, Jane holding second at $10,000, and Cheech Marin maintaining a distant third at $6,000.

Cheech showed his question first, with “What is Jordan?”  He had put it all on the line, and ended up with $12,000 total for the day, and a grand total of $18,600.

Jane went next, and was immediately shaking her head.  She posted “What is ?”  She had wagered $9,999, and was left with a buck.  Awwwww Jane!  Her tournament total, however, was $29,001.

Michael also got it wrong, posting “What is trans Palestine”  He wagered $8,000, and ended with a daily total of $4,100.  His tournament total? $35,700.

Jane, Jane, Jane.  A lucky guess would have won it all for you….

I respectfully submit: This man is a tool.

  • Lesbians should be allowed to serve, gay men (hereafter “gays”) should not.
John is a Homosexual, Hereafter referred to as Gay Johnny

Gay Johnny is gay. But not in this man's Army (via)

  • I assert that men by nature are more promiscuous than women. 

There are no promiscuous women. Only sluts and whores.


  • Our instincts were designed by Parent Nature at a time when early humans were not the predators, but the prey

Clearly a lesbian

  • It fell to men to swing through the trees and scour the caves in search of as many women as possible to subdue and impregnate — a tough job but someone had to do it. 
Subdue That Lesbian!

Subdue That Lesbian!

  • How our ancient foremothers (sic) ever managed to establish any choice in the matter is utterly beyond me when one considers that they did not have access to Mace, police whistles, Lady Smith .38s, or domestic violence hotlines

Also clearly a lesbian

  • Lesbians do not face the same pressures as straight women to “put out” for men.  They therefore tend to develop long-term, monogamous, stable, and even permanent relationships.
Lesbians are Different

Because, you know - that's always been ok with us.

  • Most men who are sexually attracted to other men can and do indulge their promiscuous urges with little or no restraint; i.e., it’s “party time” all the time.

Gay Army = Party All The Time

  • Gays spread disease at a rate out of all proportion to their numbers in our population and should be excluded from the military


  • Most gays are not inclined toward military service, but many lesbians are, and it is an open secret that they do well in the calling, especially in medical and administrative specialties. 
At least she's not a secretary

Lesbians make good nurses. Gay men don't.

  • It’s no secret that men are generally much more susceptible to sexual arousal through visual stimuli than are most women. 
True story!

Even when staring at goats...

  • the prohibition against involuntary servitude should prevent unwilling heterosexual men from providing beefcake parades without their informed consent, at least penumbrally.(sic)
americas beefcake heros

You can get your very own beefcake calendar


  • My solution would get the distaff part of our homosexual population off our collective ‘Broke Back,’ thus giving straight male GIs a fair shot at converting lesbians and bringing them into the mainstream. (comment redacted by publisher POST publication)
