The Frog Video: Some History and Thoughts

I have a fairly successful video on YouTube called Giant African Bullfrogs eating everything in sight. What started off as a fun project to watch my frogs grow and eat has grown completely out of hand. The views started off slow but after 6 months or so they came pouring in by the thousands. I’m...

Book Review|12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Jordan Peterson

For those who like my posts but aren’t aware that I have another blog just for book reviews, here’s a sample.

What Then Shall I Read?

If you’ve been paying attention at all lately then you’ve heard some buzz about Jordan Peterson. If you haven’t been paying attention lately then you need to hear what he has to say (half of the guy’s advice is “Pay attention!”).

I’ve been listening to Peterson’s clips and lectures on YouTube since late 2016 when a couple Canadian Christian apologist friends of mine invited me to like a FB page “Support for Jordan Peterson”. Peterson needed a support page because he was embroiled in a scandal over free speech after Canadian Bill C-16 came out which had serious implications for free and compelled speech. I was initially impressed with Peterson’s ability to keep cool under pressure and speak truth in the face of rabid hostility.

Silly Philology | “I Could Care Less”

I get confused when people say, “I could care less.” I mean, I guess I know what they’re trying to say, they’re trying convey their disinterest in whatever they’re interlocutor has said or asked. But in actuality, the phrase “I could care less” doesn’t really tell anyone much of anything. Ok, cool, so you could... Continue Reading →

The Potter and The Clay

God is the Potter And I am the clay. A constant reminder,  That I need today.    He pieced me together, In His image I’m formed.  He continually shapes me, From dust I’ve been born.  But, over the Potter, What right has the clay? Should the pot ask it’s maker, “Why have you made me... Continue Reading →

Terrible Terriers 

They bark, they yap, they yip, they yarp,   These dogs, they do not quit! They’ll eat you out of house and home,  And on your floor they’ll… poop. Short and stout, with chest puffed out,  They rule your house as lord.  That is until, that noise so shrill,  they hear the ironing board.  You may... Continue Reading →

My New Toy 

My new toy is awesome,   It lights up my mind. It staves off the skeptic,  the willfully blind.  I use it for choosing,  and even for finding, It hides while I'm snoozing   but everywhere- binding.  It's tethered to feelings  as well as the will, It's allegiance debated,  by Jack and by Jill. Not human convention,... Continue Reading →
