    I’m in about 4 1/2 minutes. You loveable bastards gave us a longer show? Awesome. Your podcast and “The Scathing Atheist” have become events for me. Kind of like a mini party-time.

    Thanks dudes. I think I’ll give you some money.

    That was a great episode. You guys seemed to talk longer and just conversed, and your friendship is hilarious.

    The girl dying story put a stain in my mind, I’ll be working on forgetting that. But Alas! I DID laugh at the jokes, yes, I’m like you guys. It doesn’t take away at all how reprehensible that “man” is. Cecil said he’d like to strangle him, and you guys are both against capital punishment, right?

    I thought I’d like to work him over with a ball bat or dull machete, but then it came to me! Stoning! It IS good for something!

    Seriously, I want some people to pay with their lives, but the standard for evidence should be absolute. Not beyond reasonable doubt, but no doubt.

    I got my Noah shirt a couple of days ago! I want to watch people’s faces when they read it. Stuff like that is a social experiment and fascinating.

    Great show as always. Very depressing about the 8 year old girl though. It brought me to tears hearing about it. I’m against the death penalty but that c*#t is almost a case for it.

    I love the sarcasm, satire and ridicule that you guys serve up. Keep it up!!

    Hey guys, Gloryhole!
    As a homemaker I really take exception to your comment that “there’s nothing to do any more.” I know a lot of people assume we housewives all just sit around on arses all day playing Farmville, watching soaps and drinking gin, and hey probably some do, but actually, running a household takes work. Real work. For starters, not everybody has a dishwasher. I work just as hard during the course of a day cleaning, doing washing, dishes, caring for my children etc. as my spouse does at his job, but because I don’t get paid what I do is seen is unimportant. I also object to the sexist assumption that what is traditionally seen as women’s work doesn’t involve any skills. There’s a right way and a wrong way to say, clean a shower, just as there’s a right way and a wrong way to change the oil in a car or write a report. Sure you can pick up the basics reasonably quickly but there are quite a few things it helps if you’re actually taught by somebody who knows what they’re doing. I think it’s kind of a pity they didn’t cover some of it in high school since it would have been a lot more useful to me in my daily life than a lot of the crap we learned. That being said, women should absolutely have the choice to go to college if they want to. I’d be a massive hypocrite if I said otherwise since I went. Staying at home with my kids is a choice for me (well, kind of, one of us had to since I didn’t make enough to cover daycare) and I wouldn’t want to see anyone forced into it. I just don’t like hearing what I do denigrated like that any more than you would.

    I hear ya on the psychic tips to the police, but to the cops credit look at the position they are put in. What if a “psychic” calls in a tip who actually has firsthand knowleoge on the case but doesn’t want to admit their involvement. Or what if by sheer dumb fucking luck the psychic happens to nail the hit of the century. Imagine the scandal that would occur if the police ignored a tip that later proved to be relevant, given the post-hoc rationalized relevance that the media and public can make between vague predictions and actual events. A person could lose their job.

    I think that these psychics put even the most rational of police departments in a precarious situation, where they are damned if they check out the tip and damned if they don’t. I definitely agree that after following up on a psychic tip that proves made-up and frivolous, the psychic should absolutely be charged with obstructing an investigation or worse. But I can also see why the police might feel they have to act on such tips.

    That poor young girl from Yemen. While many poor muslim families marry off their young daughters because of poverty or debts there are those who do so because it is sunnah – meaning if it was good enough for muhammad then its good enough for them. muhammed married Aisha at age 6 and raped her at 9. Hence the excuse that they shouldn’t outlaw child brides because it would be un-Islamic.
