Have you ever stopped to look at your hands and admire what a great evolutionary marvel they are. Be thankful that you have them for there are people in this world who do not or those who have lost them. But have you ever really studied them? Their shape, why they are the way they are, it's incredible and funny looking. Why are there four fingers and one thumb? Why not three fingers and one thumb? You could easily picture this by imagining that you lack a middle finger and then imagine that you're an alien species where having a middle finger is a genetic defect. How might society be different if the middle finger was seen as a defected and inappropriate for everyday use. I do not mean the gesture for "fuck you" here.
It's just all so fascinating to me.
What if God is a Hedonist and the reason why there is so much tragedy in the world is because he is trying to encourage us to always look on the bright side of life and death? What if Heaven is only reserved for a certain few and the rest of us just simply die off? Wouldn't it make sense for a creator to wish for his creations to have the most enjoyable life possible? One could argue that he could simply just make Heaven accessible for every living and deceased soul, but the thing that most organized religions seem to forget is that God can do whatever he so desires. God does make mistakes, but those mistakes are of his own will. Therefore are they really mistakes?
There are times when I feel depressed. Mostly over things I have no control over, but things that could have been prevented. Like male pattern baldness caused by stress in my youth all because I was worried about transitioning before I was 30. I tried to stop and laugh at the irony. So I have to wear a wig for my whole life and thanks to a friend I don't feel ashamed. You know what they say, somethings in life are bad and they can really make you mad. Other things can make you swear and curse, but when you're chewing on life's gristle. Don't grumble, give a whistle. This will make things turn out for the best. And always look on the bright side of life!
Bright Side of This Post: At least I started transitioning before I was 30. Mission Accomplished!

Seeing as Halloween is this Tuesday, I felt like it was appropriate to make a short entry here about it's origins and as a way to continue this old tradtion. Regardless of what many religious folk have said in the past about this holiday being the work of the devil. It actually started as a religious holiday. Perhaps one that could serve as an example for what became of Christmas, even though Christmas' traditions actually extend back to Roman festivals, but that is a tired fact brought up every year by non-Christians to mock Christians.I will not be going too much into it's origins as one could simply read the Wikipedia article for Halloween, but in essense it was a day to remember the deceased, fallen, martyrs, and saints. Similar to the Mexican festival of Day of the Dead, which intrigues me to find that there is more and more merchendise being sold for that holiday every year. Makes me wonder if it is time for Day of the Dead to lose it's original focus as well.
Not wanting to let the tradition die out as it's a very good one. Let this entry serve as a way to honor your deceased in the comments section.
It has been sixteen years since my father passed away.
Welcome to Green, our newest contributor. I hope he will contribute many quality entries!
There is a huge debate over where transgender individuals should do their doodies, but this isn't about such an argument that feels so ultimately pointless and serves only as a distraction for the general populace from other more serious issues. This is about my new outlook on public restrooms. Long have I entered such places my whole life and I always greeted by such a messy degenerate room either with toilet paper somewhere, key scratches in God knows what pattern or writing, or sometimes just not cleaned. It makes me pity the employees who have to clean that shit (literally sometimes) up. If we as a society cannot behavior ourselves within a public space made to service a basic human need to dispose of waste then perhaps we do not deserve the luxury of even having such a public space. That's right! No more men's restrooms, no more women's restrooms, no more unisex restrooms, no more transgender, cissy, non-binary, whatever restrooms. We have proven that we only abuse this space to make others feel uncomfortable. This even shows in our media. How many times do you recall seeing such a trashy degenerate bathroom in a TV show or even a motion picture? Exactly!
And the fact that the way we handle our public restrooms and how it hasn't changed much or evolved since the Victorian era, which was when they were essentially first introduced, tells me that it may either be better to just not have them anymore or work on new ways to improve them. The people complaining about having a third restroom option probably don't realize that there was initially only one back in the Victorian era. It was just a men's room because women were expected to remain in the house and not be seen out in public. I'm sure there were a group of men complaining about establishments incorporating a ladies room too. You're not special. There is no reason to even be upset about a possible third door to walk into especially when you're not even going to use it because signs are scary. Plus that third door tends to be unisex anyway which allows for anyone to use it. So feel free to wipe it out inside, but if you start abusing this space with key scratches then you have to leave. Sorry, this is my law.
I would also like to take this moment to plug James Rolfe's You Know What's Bullshit? episode on public restrooms, because he also makes valid points concerning other factors on why they suck. I will also include the episode regarding pay toilets as well.

Keep whining about where transgender people should shit, because if you cannot respect such a private place then perhaps you don't deserve them either.
I'm not talking about video game critics or journalists or whatever they wish to be called because anyone with any sense knows they're all retarded when it comes to actual reviews for that medium. When a critic is rating a hard game like Cuphead low because it doesn't have a skip boss icon then you know they don't really give a damn about video games and just want to get paid for their review. I am talking about movie critics, the kind that you often times seek advise from because you would expect them to know what they are talking about since they have witnessed many successes and many bombs. If a critic with a high reputation says a movie is garbage then you know that movie most likely is terrible. Or one may think anyway because now I am starting to see too many critics on websites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb that I never heard of before writing these really idiotic reviews that feel like mere opinion pieces.
Then when you check to see which organization a specific critic is representing, it always feels like some website or blog that you never heard of or have any reason to really trust their input. It's starting to feel like most movie critics now are just some random shmuck at a computer somewhere typing their own thoughts without taking into consideration more broader categories. It's like Yelp how nobody really cares too much about some random joe or jane whenever they treat themselves seriously as a critic and think they are worth more than the air they breath when they are really in the position to try a restaurant's boogers and cum specials. Yelp still has usages like finding popular local establishments and seeing what the general opinions of the establishments are, but when you start thinking that you're some "professional" critic and that everyone should listen to you as well as heed your own advise then this just feels entirely silly.
I could call myself a critic right now because I am writing this rant on a blog website. Do I have the expertise to start critiquing motion pictures or video games? Probably not since I don't have that much experience with films or games, but I would at least try to appeal to the wider audience who may enjoy a certain thing. I guess I was just a little upset when I saw a shitton of rotten reviews on Fandango while trying to find a movie to go see at my local second run theatre while most of the fresh and certified fresh ratings tend to be more mainstream films that could lead one to suspect that studios are paying for good reviews. I am thrilled, though, that the War for the Planet of the Apes is a critical success. Those movies are definitely one of the best films I've seen in the 2010's.
In the new Michael Jackson's Halloween, Michael's chipanzee Bubbles was flying what looked to be an elevator flying through the time vortex. It was a small square box and hard to tell what color it was because of the special effects. It looked blue though.
I am seriously starting to hate Thriller and I blame Party City for beating it to death every Halloween.
This is the first entry, hopefully of many more to come. I hope Spode will take charge here and blog up a storm about the various things she thinks of constantly, I hope to get to know her even more than I have over the years by reading her entries here. You can get to know her too!
