Oldies But Goodies

I’m still hoping to reach my deeply autistic obsessive goal of having 1,000,000 hits on the WordPress platform of this blog by January 1, 2013. To facilitate this noble goal, I’m offering you a collection of older posts that I still consider very very good. Enjoy, folks!

Have you ever wondered why different cultures prize different things in a writing style? Here is my answer.

On love and golden dust.

Nobody ever visits this old post but a bunch of folks in search of porn. Maybe you want to rescue it from oblivion by clicking on it?

Funny stories about visiting an OB-GYN while autistic.

Who owns a husband? Not my husband, of course, because we all know an answer to that but just any regular husband.

This is one of the reasons my students like me (hint: I never forget they are human.)

A student and his crotch make me laugh during the finals.

This very short post will always prove hugely popular because of the photo it features. See how I’m trying to mystify you?

Between the legs of a gaucho. There is a picture, too.

In case you missed this important post, it lists the core principles of my political beliefs.

Where is Russia headed? Things have only gotten worse since I published that post.

On age disparity in romantic relationships.

Prosperity changes people. And not necessarily for the better.

Years go by but nobody has yet managed to leave a funnier comment on my blog than the one quoted in this post.

I really want that 1,000,000 hits, folks. Let’s make them happen!

  1. I still think I am more right about what joining military is for in American culture. Just today read the quoted below bit, and I often encounter such point of view among US citizens. People also often mention how returning from WW2 soldiers got a possibility (help from government) to go to university, which otherwise would be out of reach. So a young poor person from specific culture in US will get lots of encouragement to join in order to get a chance at a better life later.

    Here a writer moans poor young people not becomming cannon fodder, “a traditional escape route”, in sufficient numbers because of poverty programs.

    Our poverty programs do rescue many people, but other times they backfire.

    Some young people here don’t join the military (a traditional escape route for poor, rural Americans) because it’s easier to rely on food stamps and disability payments.

  3. In case you missed those news:

    1) Adam Lanza, 20, shot his teacher mother before driving to her elementary school and shooting 26 people including 20 children (He stole his mother’s guns)

    2) Not connected to 1st, and seems unimportant by comparison, but still:

    From Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

    Speaking at Princeton University, Scalia was asked by a gay student why he equates laws banning sodomy with those barring bestiality and murder.

    “I don’t think it’s necessary, but I think it’s effective,” Scalia said, adding that legislative bodies can ban what they believe to be immoral.

    “It’s a form of argument that I thought you would have known, which is called the ‘reduction to the absurd,’” Scalia told [Princeton student Duncan] Hosie of San Francisco during the question-and-answer period. “If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things?”

    Scalia said he is not equating sodomy with murder but drawing a parallel between the bans on both.

    Then he deadpanned: “I’m surprised you aren’t persuaded.”
