Stop Dumping Ice on Your Head. Just Give Money.
“Facebook has become saturated with videos of people dumping buckets of ice on their heads. They’re taking the #icebucketchallenge, a viral phenomenon whose ostensible purpose is to raise money for charity. The challenge is simple: Either donate $100 to a given cause, or douse yourself with ice, film…”

“19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God.
For it is written, He catches the wise in their craftiness,

In this post, I want to give you a prediction, “some of the most acclaimed documentaries ever are about as real as ‘Borat’.”

Rick Perry Indictment Is Unbelievably Ridiculous
“I have never seen anything so frivolous in my (admittedly nonexistent) legal career. Our higher education system fails leftist students.”

“When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope; this is a more simplified version of the preliminary 2014-15 winter forecast that I released on July 20th:  It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be grey, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.”

Ferguson and the Unwritten Contract between Police and the Community
“A few thoughts on the recent events in Ferguson, Mo. So far we have only been given the merest details about the incident, and most of what we know — or think we know — has been provided by a young man who says he was walking with Brown when they were confronted by the officer. They were walking …”

I don’t know, do you 026

Without some compromises, I can’t wear this uniform, “I am needed tonight: instead of working until 5:00 p.m., I return at 5:00 p.m. and work until 10:00 p.m. If you’re at Denton’s after 10:00 p.m., I’d be happy to see you there,” so I have had little time to opine on any current event.

It’s Jennifer Lawrence’s Birthday: Let Us Remind You Why She’s the Best
“Jennifer Lawrence turns 24 today—24! Do you know how young that is considering all that she’s done in her life? She’s won an Oscar, she’s starred in a blockbuster franchise, she’s made tripping and falling a cool thing to do, she’s reminded us on the regular to be candid, confident, and ballsy, and …”

“24 For ‘All flesh is like grass (1 Peter 1:24-25)
and all its glory like the flower of grass.
The grass withers, and the flower falls,
25 but the word of the Lord remains forever.’
And this word is the good news that was preached to you.”

We Must Demilitarize the Police: Rand Paul
Libertarians have been anything but silent about police abuses in Ferguson, Missouri. Anyone who thinks that race does not skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention.”

2015 Aston Martin Vanquish: Bringing Reality to the Unreal
“The worst aspect of cutting edge CGI and audio technology in today’s world is that it’s taught us to question our primary senses.
