"Evangelists say Halloween is the devil's holiday.
What a lame-ass devil! Sitting down in the depths of hell, going, "I've got control of the major corporations, churning out weapons and toxic waste, but how can I get candy? Let me think--I'll get the children of the world to dress up as hobos and Power Rangers--and then I'll have all the bite-size Three Musketeers I need! I am Satan!"

Quote of the Moment
"The greatest productive force is human selfishness."
--Robert Heinlein. Not one of the usual Heinlein quotes I always see kicking around. I'm not sure I agree with it completely. Compare and contrast to Michael Shermer's "Rationality tied to moral decency is the most powerful joint instrument for good that our planet has ever known."

Ranjit pointed me to Googlism, a Google using tool that informed me that "kirk israel is a visionary" and "kirk israel is the blender". It can tell you what nearly anyone is, especially if you only use their first names.
Keep in mind that succesful "hits" on the site get added to a publicly-viewable index.
