  1. Baby koala are incredibly adorable. However after seeing some at a koala rescue in Brisbane this summer they stink to high heavens. Think about how strong eucalyptus smells and then imagine it going through a digestive system…. *shudder*

  2. I don’t usually watch those Beck Youtube videos, because I long ago dismissed him as a lying douche bag. However, I watched this one, for whatever reason… Wow. The lies, distortions, and misinformation in there are insane. He cannot possible be stupid enough to believe what he was saying, and that means he said it all knowing it was not true.

    What the hell could his motive be?

    Why don’t other conservatives call him out?

    Why don’t (real) Christians disassociate themselves from him?

    On the somewhat bright side, isn’t he the one that all the advertisers have recently boycotted?

  3. I feel pretty sure that Beck is not genuine. In fact, I don’t think he’s very good at faking it. People like Ann Coulter I wonder about, but Glenn Beck seems to be stifling his own laughter, and presumably letting it all out on the way to the bank.

  4. @magicdude20:

    I’m sure he’s heard of the book, and of Dawkins, and is uninterested in what it says. Don’t waste your copy or your postage.

    Besides, even if you change his mind, he’s not going to throw away his entire brand over it.

  5. Glenn has said before that the real problem is bloggers think he’s serious when he’s joking and think he’s joking when he’s serious.
    If true, all that says to me is he needs to rethink being in the radio business.

    Of course, he was probably joking…

  6. Bananas!

    “3 groves at the top and 2 groves at the bottom” he says.

    I just put my thumb and first finger in that shape, and I count 7 total groves: *4* on the finger, 2 on the thumb, and one where the thumb and finger intersect. So God either messed up on the finger, miscounted on the thumb, and/or designed the banana wrong. >;->

    And who would have expected plant material to be bio-degradable? Oh, clearly this is evidence of a higher power! >;->

  7. I wish I could access that show (Last chance to see) legally here in the states without having to have cable. Ah well, guess I’ll wait for the DVD set, and I really need to locate the original book and radio series with Douglas Adams.
