2012 in review

By |December 30th, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many

Let Texas Secede

By |November 16th, 2012

If you keep up with the news, you’re aware that the Texas Nationalist Movement, led by Daniel Miller, has collected over 80,000 signatures from Texans who support secession.

Story here:

A petition for Texas secession has qualified to receive a White House response.

As of Tuesday evening, the petition — which asks for the peaceful withdrawal of the state

Death and Vexation

By |October 1st, 2012

I hate to put a damper on what’s an otherwise lighthearted blog. But that’s life.

An individual with whom I shared an inimitable relationship died a month ago. A month ago tomorrow. Assuming I finish writing this today. Which I won’t. It’ll take some time to organize the obstinate, disheveled thoughts which accompany this particular loss.

The Three People You meet on Facebook

By |August 2nd, 2012

You ever log into Facebook and notice a Friend Request that you know you’ve accepted before? According to Facebook 4.8 percent of all active accounts are duplicate, non-human, or spam. This comes as no real news to me. In my list of friends now numbering in the thousands, I have always noticed spam friends,

Don’t Eat the Chicken

By |August 1st, 2012

The only time I have an urge to eat at Chick-Fil-a is on Sunday… (Un)fortunately, they are always closed on Sunday. It comes with the territory that is the owners philosophy: “Sunday is the day God rested, its the Sabbath and all people’s should have that day off to worship and fellowship in his name”(paraphrased).  This philosophy is Christian because the owner is a devoted christian who feels that God is real and Christianity is HIS truth.

Obama is Stealing My Ideas

By |July 18th, 2012

Okay, so maybe the title of this post is a bit of a stretch. But I couldn’t help but notice something familiar about the controversial comments Obama made in Virginia the other day. Conservatives and Republicans only want you to hear the part where he said “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build

How to Get Away with Stuff #3 – Passing a Urine Drug Test

By |June 5th, 2012

So you need to pass a drug test? My condolences. But you’ve found the right article; this post is all about how to pass a urine drug test – also known as urinalysis.

Notwithstanding the circumstances that forced you into the all-too-common predicament of passing a urine drug test, and regardless of the illegal substances you’ve consumed throughout the adventure of life, there is always a way for anyone to pass a drug test. Having said that, the options available to drug users faced with the indignity of drug testing are numerous and varying.

DMT Q&A with John Jr

By |March 21st, 2012

As those of you who follow EWWTY know, I published an article last month detailing my experience with DMT. If you haven’t read it you should do so now, it’s really good – and I’m rarely willing to say that about my work.
Anyway, the article attracted far more readers and positive feedback than I could have anticipated; I’ve spent roughly as much time responding to everyone as I did writing the piece (which is awesome).
One of my readers, John Jr, had a series of really thoughtful questions about my DMT experience. I realized soon after reading them that my answers would be substantive enough to call for a separate new post. So, without further adieu:

Senility

By |March 11th, 2012

I had one of those moments today where I though of something really good to write about.

And then life threw a minor distraction my way, diverging my train of thought for a matter of mere seconds. Next think I knew, I was thrust into that frustrating mental limbo where I could remember having had

Reasons Mormons are Weird: Volume One

By |March 9th, 2012

Surfing through the sewer that is American internet news publications, I came across the following story, which is an elaboration upon an issue msnbc.com has covered at least once prior:

Mormon Church Tries to Limit Baptism of Deceased Jews

Now, you may be wondering, “What the fuck?”

If that’s the case, clearly someone isn’t reading enough news.

Holy Gonads: A Year of Blogging

By |March 7th, 2012

Whilst browsing this blog today in order to ensure nothing is askew, I noticed a little detail. Both the first and last month listed under my “Archive” section are March. Which would support the thesis that EWWTY is officially one year old.

When I first started EWWTY, I had hoped to challenge myself by writing

Misconduct review imminent for Anti-Obama judge

By |March 2nd, 2012

LA Times reports:

The Judicial Council of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals opened a misconduct review of Montana’s chief federal District Court judge for forwarding a racially charged email about President Obama from his courthouse computer.

Judge Richard F. Cebull asked for the review as calls mounted Thursday for his immediate resignation. Legal ethics experts predicted
