“If we do not act now, homosexuals will own America! If you and I do not speak up now, this homosexual steamroller will literally crush all decent men, women and children who get in its way … and our nation will pay a terrible price!” — Jerry Falwell
I literally love The Oatmeal. Additionally Rob Lowe’s performance as Chris Traeger is literally the best one he’s ever done.

Even with the usual caveats about reading too much into questioning at a Supreme Court hearing, the big takeaway from this week’s oral arguments on gay marriage was the reluctance of several justices to impose a national standard on an issue that Americans have seriously debated for only a few years.[…]
Looking forward, a key question on gay marriage is whether the intensity of modern media and communications makes such disparities among the states less tenable. The dawn of television hastened segregation’s demise; it seems dubious that its daily indignities could have survived as long amid 24-hour cable and viral videos. (Imagine enforcing back-of-the-bus rules against people filming iPhone videos that might reach CNN in hours.) Today, the increasingly positive images of gay men and women in the popular culture blanketing all regions probably help explain the growing public support for same-sex rights, including marriage.[…]
The arc of American history bends irreversibly toward inclusion of previously marginalized groups, which means that greater equality for gays is inevitable. But the justices are waiting for a cavalry that won’t arrive if they are hoping that the states will establish a common set of rules for same-sex marriage before the Court itself must act.
The same-sex marriage issue must be decided by our top court and not left to the states. These marriages must be legal, valid and respected across the whole, good-ole US of A.
Or … gays can start using different restrooms. I don’t want their cooties.

The RSS Feed is no longer sorted by the updated date — it’s now sorted on the original published date. I liked it the former way for awhile but now I like it the latter way. I’ve also fixed (again) the
lastBuildDate so cross your fingers that your feed reader will do the right thing.
Comments are added to the main feed auto-magically as they appear and there’s a new feed solely for them.
I, for one, welcome our new XML overlords.

Small town sheriff. Weird looking kid wearing an oversized hat. Outsider arrives and shakes things up. The dead come to life. I’m, of course, talking about Toy Story, Pixar’s 1995 film that gave the studio enough clout to eventually make Cars 2 (thank GOD). I suppose the same plot summary could be used for AMC’s The Walking Dead, two dots that Redditor “JimmyLegs50” connected to make a mashup of the movie and zombie series.
You’ve probably already seen this because of the awesome-factor it holds. If not, you’re in for a treat.
Jump to the imgur page if ya want but the site is flaky at best right now.
