Earned Respect, Unconditional Love

October 31st, 2012 by G.

And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.

October 31st, 2012 by Pecos Bill

The Gender Pay Gap, Santa Claus, and the Easter Bunny Walk into a Bar

October 31st, 2012 by Man SL

and blah blah blah, set up the joke, and punchline!: None of them exist.

This may explain why the Vice President switched gears and declared trans-gender discrimination the biggest civil rights issue.

Most entertaining excuse yet for heavy drinking

Glenn Reynolds: “You have to kill a few of those brain cells now and then, pour encourager les autres.

Fond as I am of the basic approach, I’m hesitant to apply it to my own neurons.

Yay, Dads.

The Winds and the Waves
