Luckily, I don't play shooters. But I do play Transport Tycoon, which of course turned me into the next Richard Branson.

Christopher Hitchens on ritual genital mutilationcircumcision, particularly in Judaism:

Quote
...if you look at the reasons given by Maimonides and the other sages for the practice of circumcision, it is precisely to dull, and to blunt, the sensation of an organ which I don't think even, well, I'll leave it there. It's explicitly designed, in other words, to reduce sexual pleasure and make it more of a painful duty than a celebration.

A significant proportion of what Eminem writes boils down to "Ok, things are bad but I won't give up and will get better."

...Which doesn't make his stuff bad it is just apparent that he figured out one theme that he knows how to do and falls back to it often because it's what he does best.

I honestly hope Taylor gets into a fight with President Trump on Twitter and writes a song about it.

It would be gloriously hilarious listening.

Are they planning a new crusade?
