I suppose this is humorous: I just listened to the above video. I did not know, even though after doing a search I see it's been cited at EvC at least a hundred times, that the Treaty of Tripoli included the words, "the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion."

T-Shirt
Just saw it advertised on FB:

quote:
Drawing of a test tube:
"If you're not part of the SOLUTION
You're part of the PRECIPITATE"

 

In other news, George Takei replied to the idiotic anti-vaccine whine of "I don't want to be part of an experiment!":

quote:
Too late. You already are part of the experiment. You are part of the control group.

Irony Defined
The daughter and male companion are looking to move to Germany to escape the Nazis.

The problem with knowing everything is learning nothing.

If you don't know what you're doing, find someone who does, and do what they do.

Small World Department:

My ancestors were Mennonites - German-speaking pacifists - who came to Canada before WWI. They weren't popular during the war so they decided to leave Canada, to "find freedom" I guess.

They moved to Paraguay.
