George Rekers will sue you for calling a spade a spade. Just to clarify: bringing a gay prostitute on your trip doesn’t make you gay, wanting to bring a gay prostitute on your trip makes you gay. Actually bringing him makes you a gay hypocrite. If Rekers weren’t gay, he wouldn’t have resigned in shame.
In October, I declared one topic to be taboo on Is It Luck. Yesterday, I tried to break my own rule; Lewis Black eviscerated that topic on the Daily Show on Wednesday night, and I wanted to post it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the video to embed. Linking to it on another blog solves both the embedding problem and the persona non grata problem with one fell swoop. Neato!
This very post marks the 10th time that the venerable Phil Plait has been mentioned on Is It Luck. In a recent post, he explains why the moon appears to be larger when it’s on the horizon than when it’s overhead. It’s always interesting to see an optical illusion at work in the natural world. The picture from the London Tube station is pants-poopingly cool. (Here are the other 9 times I mentioned him.) I really can’t say enough good about Plait.
