FAQ

This FAQ is intended to clear up some of the burning questions you, my dear reader(s), have about the blog or about me. As for that burning sensation in your crotch area, I can only suggest you see a medical professional.

Q: How often will you post updates? Is it safe for me to ignore this blog for months at a time, or do I need to check daily for your scintillating insight into all manner of issues?
A: I expect that if you check back once a week or so, you’ll do fine. I can go for 2 or 3 weeks without posting anything, but then I’ll post 12 entries in a single day, or some such. I suggest you use some random system, such as the roll of a die or the flip of a coin, as your guide in this matter.

Q: Is it hard to type with that cat on top of your hand?
A: No, surprisingly not. Sitting in this chair affords the cat a comfortable space lying across my wrist and pinning my hand down, but still allows free movement of the fingers necessary for typing.

Q: What sort of content can I expect?
A: Rants, raves, my (invariably opinionated) opinions. I might post an entry about what I had for lunch, followed immediately by a post about some news item of national import. You’ll find I’m typically arrogant, often ill-informed, and consistently quick to judge. Simultaneously, if you can point out an error in my factual references, I’ll graciously accept your outpointing. If you want to bitch about my reasoning or opinions, keep it short – I’m unlikely to engage in a flame war with a half-wit, so don’t waste our time. If you don’t like what you see, go read something else.

Q: Am I likely to be offended by this blog?
A: Very probably. Given how easy it is to offend people these days, and how enjoyable it iscanbe to do so, I expect to offend everybody, eventually.

Q: Is it safe to click your links from my workplace computer?
A: Most of the time, yes. If a link is clearly Not Safe For Work (NSFW) I will flag it. If it’s a bit off-color or potentially creepy, I’ll also point that out. Any links that lack qualifiers should be considered safe for mixed company of various ages.

Q: Jesus Christ, you sure like to rag on religion. Why can’t you give it a rest? What did organized religion ever do to you?
A: Organized religion is arguably the most destructive force in the modern world. I do not deny that during the Middle Ages Holy Mother Church helped preserve historical records and such. I also do not deny that despite the cultural destruction wrought by missionaries, many religious organizations do a lot to help third-world populations. However! The modern world has no room for superstitious beliefs about a magic sky-man who watches what you do and can’t wait for you to slip up so he can punish you.  In the socio-cultural evolution of humanity, we need to now throw off these childish ideas and establish a new attitude toward morality. We need a system of ethics and morals based in our understanding of the inherent value of our humanity, not founded on ancient fictions. As for what organized religion has done to me: Plenty. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice it to say, growing up gay and Catholic really fucks with one’s head. Seriously. And that shit needs to stop. Right now.

Q: You’ve been out of school for a while now. Why aren’t you posting more frequently?
A: What?

Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: Independently wealthy.
