    So I higly recommend the happletea.

    com blog where this *****'s shamelessly plugged from, especially if you're not strongly attached to any particular faith. Not only is it full of humorous strips based on various mythologies, but each one is accompanied by little in-depth information about said myth. In this case...

    Getting Stranger By the Minute

    My weirdness has been a coping mechanism for years... it's gotten me out of some sticky situations.  I have utilized my twisted wit for as long as I can rememeber.   I've even had people get the idea to fight me, I abhor violence so I would say something...

    Stranger And/or Stronger

    The quotation of Friedrich Nietzsche 'what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' is one of the most famous in philosophy.  It's the expression of a very fundamental truth.  One who survives deadly experiences is enriched with all they can teach him.  Unusual...

    Stranger

    Best group I've seen in a while. And, true for me. We all get put through trials. No one comes out completely unscathed. Every experience we have affects our perspective on the very next experience we have. I read this somewhere recently and it keeps bugging me: Once you learn...
