  1. Tim McGraw needs to start hanging out with Larry Flick again. Perhaps between the two of them, they'll reach a happy medium.

  2. For my next Grindr profile picture I will also be posing with a baby great white shark.

  3. Awwww...baby white shark is cute as a button.

    I kinda agree with Hawking, but I'm hedging my bets so I call myself Agnostic.

  4. "Tim McGraw has no body fat left."

    Apparently he has no body hair left, either, unfortunately.

  5. The article about the CIA regarding UBL doll. Please tell me that it's some article from the Onion. I just can't wrap my head around the thought of the CIA actually considering it.

  6. I certainly agree with Hawking that the brain is a computer. But who is operating that computer?

  7. The computer operates itself. Do you honestly think that a sky fairy is forming and manipulating your thoughts?

  8. Nothing new about what Perry said. This kind of fallacy has always been used by creationists to "prove" the existence of god. The design theory. An elegant rebuttal was made by the famous biologist Richard Dawkins which would be convincing to most scientists and anyone with a brain.
    http://old.richarddawkins.net/articles/642754-attention-governor-perry-evolution-is-a-fact
    It is a non-starter in science if you propose there is a designer behind the human being or any living creature. The gist of the matter is it would require a more complicated structure (god) to explain a simpler object (human being) which can be called anti-reductionism. Yet reductionism is the central goal of a large part of science since its dawn. Always start from some simple principles or laws to explain a large number of natural phenomena and experiments. Starting from "god" or "designer" will lead nowhere. It would lead to anything without any predictive power.
    If you want to go to the moon(or to heaven), god can't help you.It is up to NASA to feed data (called initial conditions) into their supercomputers which solve the equations deduced from Newton's laws and voila a specific trajectory is output which is then fed into the navigation system of a rocket. From time to time they need to compensate for any "errors" through satellites (by the way, the principle is same as Cruise missile). No psychic can tell what that trajectory is. Neither can god.

  9. Sergio is also right. It operates itself. Technically the human body is co-operative, with fuel from the food we eat.

  10. Like computers, the human body also has input and output.

  11. The brain contains the CPU and memory.
