A few choice links with my pithy comments to accommodate to get you all revved up for the weekend.
With my post the other day about the horrible PayPal and what to use instead of their services, I felt it was my duty to trawl around the net to discover a suitable alternative option. Much trawling later and I came across one which I think is outrageously appropriate given the nature of PayPal’s transgressions.
Continue to Give is a church-based payment platform which I think does all the same bits as PayPal. However, I think you can be reasonably assured that they’re not going to suddenly boycott governments for not allowing narcissistic transsexual mentally ill sex perverts to hang around bathrooms of the opposite sex.

Remember that there are only three macro nutrients — carbohydrate, protein and fat.
If you remove essentially all of one and a huge percentage of the other from your food choices, what’s left?
Readers of my book will remember the scene where i got dramatically ill. The principle cause was a vegetarian diet.
An article from a college professor on how hard his life is because college ain’t what it used to be. It’s mostly worth reading although he goes on for far too long which shows how good his English teaching is. I made a comment on the piece quoting a section he wrote. His section in bold, my response in italics:
