Black and White: Why Morality Has No Place in Magic

In order to understand the difference between black and white magic, we have to assume magic exists. I assume magic exists, though I would point out that just like gravity and evolution, magic exists whether we believe in it or not.

What is Magic?

I am having one of those days where I am not sure if I am mentally and physically well enough to work. We all have them, but if you are one of the vast numbers of the lower middle class, you do not get to choose: you’re going to work.

Guilt Tripping: An Excoriation of Christmas

I am not a fan of Christmas. Admittedly, there are a few good things about it: the pretty lights, a general spirit of giving, and peppermint lattes. As for the rest of it, I could just soon as do without, especially the one thing that makes Christmas, well, Christmas. That one thing is not holiday cheer, nor is it a sense of peace on Earth and good will towards mankind. It’s certainly not the birth of Christ, though that factors into things.

What Christmas means to me can be summed up in one word: GUILT.

The myth of the plant-based diet aspect of veganism as expensive is rubber-check, three dollar bill false, put forth by mendacious, First World “experts” who have recently converted to the Whole30 diet and silly fads like it. Any vegan, who by definition chooses not to eat or use animals for the sake of the animals, should be downright insulted by the mere insinuation being vegan is expensive.

Why I Am Encouraged: A Picture-Free Post About the Dentist Who Killed The Lion

Recently a dentist named Walter Palmer made headlines by assassinating a lion named Cecil. Palmer did it so he could stuff Cecil's head and mount it on his wall, orphaning Cecil's pride in Zimbabwe and destroying some of the last lions on the face of Earth. It is my estimation that all of the big cats will be extinct by the time the youngest people reading this bear grandchildren.
