Well, Velveeta has a busy day ahead so it's open.

Discuss the upcoming Opening Day of BASEBALL or that Basketball bracket thingy, or this funny bit that I found floating around the inter-tubes:

I must live in Hell
Author: TriSec    Date: 03/29/2014 12:02:02

Good Morning.

You know me; I tend to be heavily insulted whenever anyone else derides New England or Boston as being "less" than their ideals or area of the country. I needn't remind everyone that everything we take for granted in these United States (including these United States) was probably invented here, or by somebody from here? But I digress.

Come along and suffer with me....

Via Wonkette: ...
“Madison Rising,” is indeed amazing, if by “amazing” we mean “almost unbearably bad to listen to.” It’s like Nickelback if Nickelback sucked 1000 times more than Nickelback.

In Defense of Intelligent Design
Author: BobR    Date: 2014-03-26 10:18:42

By now, it's pretty well known that the anti-evolution crowd is upset about the new "Cosmos" show. They feel that their Biblical version of creation of man is being ignored, and want equal time. They want "Cosmos" to discuss what they call "Intelligent Design". That descriptor replaces "creationism" as it implies perhaps not a literal interpretation of the creation story in Genesis, but one that still places the design of creation and the creation of Man in the hands of God.

As a software engineer, designer, developer, and architect, I know a thing or two about intelligent design. A good software program is designed to be reusable, extensible, modular, adaptable, and scale-able. Let's look at a few aspects of that.

Faith Finally comes to the South
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 03/23/2014 13:35:17

Many people consider the South to be the "Bible Belt" but as any real Southerner can tell you that is far from the truth. I mean, not unless there's a different Bible that I've never seen.

One of the tenets of this thing called "Christianity" (named after a hippie looking guy that today would labeled a possible Islamic Terrorist by many) is that we should help the poor.
I know, it's pretty laughable to think that those of us that have a roof over our heads and some food in our stomach should actually get off our couches and help the poor. Just amazing. Hold on. I need to purchase this thing I need off the interwebs.
