A Small Taste of Your Afterlife

As a Satanist, I don’t believe in a Heaven or Hell. I don’t really believe in an afterlife, period. As far as I’m concerned, this is the only life I get. I don’t get a chance to do things differently in a different reincarnation. I will not be forgiven by a stern but caring deity […]

Getting Angry and Getting S**t Done

Besides being one of the so-called deadly sins, we as a society have a stigma against expressing, or even feeling, negative emotions, such as anger. We all want to be happy, or at least pretend to be happy, and we want the people around us to be happy (and specifically, we don’t want the people […]

Unpopular Opinion – The Military

I’m probably going to get some shit for this one. I don’t really care as much as I probably should, but then, there are a lot of things that I don’t care about as much as I should, so why should this week’s topic be any different? Today, I’m going to be going over the […]

Now that I’m back, I have a few thoughts I need to share about the situation. We’ll start with presumption of innocence, or, […]

Being Human

…Is a good show (UK version; I wasn’t a huge fan of the American version). It is not, however, a good excuse for the shitty things you do. Everyone’s had confrontations like these. Somebody well-meaning makes a mistake which causes some trouble for you or someone else. When you inform this person that their mistake […]
