A few years ago (2006), Bill Nye the Science Guy made the mistake of going to Texas once to discuss science, which is akin to going to the Vatican to espouse the benefits of Islam.Â Anyway, he was in Waco to participate in McLennan Community Collegeâs Distinguished Lecture Series where he talked about a variety of topics.Â One of those topics was the not- so- secret fact that the Moon doesnât produce its own light, it reflects the light of the SunâŠ much the way a mirror doesnât reflect anything unless thereâs a light on.Â Â You might remember this conversation from 2nd grade.Â Texas doesnât.Â So when Bill explained why the moon glows, he was met with boos because Genesis 1:16 says different.Â One woman even yelled âwe believe in Godâ before storming out with her three unfortunate children.Â (*sigh*, followed by a face palm)Â Meanwhile, Minnesota House Speaker Kurt Zeller was on a radio last week (Wednesday, if you care) talking the usual partisan garbage when he revealed a level of stupid youâd hope no American politician would broach, but he did.Â The long and short of it is this; he explained that voting in this country is a privilege, not a right.Â (repeat *sigh* followed by face palm)Â Well Kurt, it IS a privilege and a RIGHT.Â He corrected himself the next day after his âpeopleâ showed him the Constitution which clearly states SEVERAL times that voting is a right.Â Glad he got around to reading the thing he took an oath to defend.Â On a personal level, Miles and I were once asked if the movie âThe Curious Case of Benjamin Buttonâ was based on a true story.Â If you donât know, âBenjamin Buttonâ is about a guy who is born old and progressively gets youngerâŠ which is all the hint you need, really, but we were asked.Â That inspired todayâs question:Â WHAT CAN YOU NOT BELIEVE PEOPLE DONâT KNOW OR WHAT COULDNâT YOU BELIEVE WAS ACTUALLY TRUE?
AAAGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!Â This was the kind of show that makes me wanna pack my bags and move off of the f**king planet.
Against my better judgment, here are some of todayâs answers:
His 23 year old buddy was unaware that raisins were dried grapes
A girl in his English class pointed out that no one has ever used a nuclear bomb on another country, which is true (we used ATOMIC bombs on Japan) but she was unaware of the American response to Pearl Harbor
A college girl asked if she could get AIDS from anal sexâŠ donât know if anyone responded, âletâs find out!â
His âreligiousâ pal didnât know that most Christian holidays are just repackaged pagan holidays (Christmas, Easter, etc)
Cannot believe that people still think OJ Simpson is innocent in the murder of Nicole Brown and Ron GoldmanâŠ well, technically he IS innocent, but in reality, HELL NO!
Canât believe that people think Elvis is still alive.Â Weâll just assume he means Elvis Presley, as Costello and Grbac are still alive
His wife was concerned that the radio in the truck they bought in Oregon wouldnât be able to pick up Washington radio stations when they drove it home.Â She wasnât his wife at the time and in spite of her concern, he married her anywayâŠ which tells US that sheâs awesome in the sack
Couldnât believe that Sarah Palin thought Africa was a country, not a continentâŠ personally, Iâm not surprised by that AT ALL
A woman asked where her prostate wasâŠ itâs in your husbandâs ass
Was stunned when Bill OâReilly argued that the tides were an act of God because weâve never figured out what causes them.Â Well Bill, we ALL know what causes tidesâŠ except you.Â Actually, I defended Bill, arguing that his ignorance was for entertainments sake and that there was no way he didnât know the real answer.Â Who knows?
His aunt didnât know the difference between 100 thousand and 1 million.Â Thought they were the same but just regional references
