Pope Bouncer The First

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

It was reported yesterday that Pope Francis once worked as a bouncer at a college bar! Of course this was not last summer but when he was a student in the 1950’s.  Although it’s hard to imagine Francis throwing anyone out of a club, that was just one of his jobs as a teenager.  He also swept floors and ran tests in a chemical laboratory.

The pope spent four hours at a small church in a working-class neighborhood in Rome on Sunday. He joked and revealed parts of his resume while chatting informally with parishioners before and after celebrating Mass.

Since I’m a recovering Catholic, I’ve never had a lot of nice things to say about Popes.  But I like this one and the reforms he’s advocating.  I’ve got to give the devil his due.

Full Moons Are Not Excuses For Crazy

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

People are crazy with fears, traditional bullshit, and irrational thoughts pretty much all the time. The planets have nothing to do with it.  But since the moon has a gravitational effect on tides, wouldn’t it also have that same effect on people who are 90% water?

Nooo…. The moon does affect oceans – 80% of the earth’s surface – every day of the year.  NOW we’re talking some planet-to-planet strength!  But even this force does not cause large water flows in “smaller” bodies of water like the Great Lakes.

I know that’s what you’ve heard all your life – but pretty much everything you’ve heard all your life is horseshit.

Take the Moonies, please.  The moon didn’t cause Moonies to become crazy – they were crazy BEFORE they formed their little club. Crazy enough to give money, cars, and houses to these people!  There’s never been an accepted scientific study proving the moon has any relationship to “lunatics” (even though that term comes from ‘lunar’).

It’s been estimated that over 15,000 people per year “moon” Amtrak trains across the country.  If you see one and make a wish, you’ll have regular bathroom habits for the rest of your life.
