I stayed at my wife's Uncle's house in India and it did have a toilet. It didn't have any pipes though, it just went straight out into the garden for the pigs to eat.
We had pork for dinner and I found out afterwards that it was one of their pigs. I hate to say it but it was the best pork I have ever eaten.

Did you guys say that the Apple app is in the store now? I believe you meant the Android app?

Based solely on the fact that one stand-up-a-thon-er, (a person who has their own KATG spin-off no less) put forth about as much effort as JFOD on a weekday morning, yes. Michael should absolutely do stand up.

Michael is very funny, (pause for reader acknowledgement) but does one thing many comedians forget to do: write. Michael, (stop for emphasis) is smart, but also has a work ethic. Who cares how funny you are if you don't try up on stage??

I think Michael would kill it on stage. Also, would love to hear him sprinkle important atheist tidbits/ political whatnot into his show.

I took a gamble. It should be up very shortly.

The poll is a trick.

The word "chemical" is generally used to describe a man-made substance, but that's technically incorrect. (Kind of like saying a tissue is a Kleenex.) Everything is a chemical, including so-called "natural" or organic ingredients. Pure water is a chemical compound: H20

Our food supply definitely contains man-made substances.

Thanks! I have a note on my phone with various things that I found funny over the years. Eventually, I'd like to turn that into a 10 minute performance but I know that a solid 10 minutes would take me many hours to refine.

Right now, I'm using my free time to get back into poker here on the east coast. The plan is to start with small games and a small bankroll then work my way up. So far, it's going OK but I don't have as much free time to play as I'd like.

But man-made VS. natural VS. processed are also meaningless descriptions. Each of those categories can have unhealthy and even poisonous foods. That's why I'm so frustrated when I hear those words to describe things. It's a meaningless description.

It's like saying corporations are evil. Guess what? Keith and The Girl, LLC is a corporation. That local mom & pop coffee shop? They're a corporation too. Pretty much all professional organizations are incorporated.

I think I know what people are trying to say when they use the words processed and corporations but I believe that conversations barely scratch the surface when only those words are used.

If you want to talk about food that's bad, don't say "it has chemicals", talk about which chemicals it has in it. For instance, is "trans fat" what you're concerned about? Does it have too much sugar? Which kind of sugar?

If you want to talk about corporations that are evil, talk about what they do that is evil. Are they promoting legislation that violates human rights? Do they break the law in some way? Are they doing something extremely unethical that should be banned with new laws?

Explain yo self.
