Give me one blog ....

I know that y'all have lives outside Raytractors

I know, it's difficult to believe.

But I'd really like it if you could all post (at least)one blog or website that you read and enjoy regularly that:
a: Has nothing in common or to do with Raytractors
b: You think the others here would appreciate


  1. To start it of I give you
    Travelling but not in love a blog by a gay English guy who works in Paris and travels a lot. He is funny, a great writer. He lets out little episodes in his very interesting life, written in cliff-hanger style. This young man is single handedly responsible for making me lighten up a whole bunch about homosexuality.

  2. To keep up with the shenanigans of the realigious right I like to go here at least once a week and read the blog and comments.
    I have some old cronies that post and comment here.

  3. 4chan.org --I'm JOKING!!

    LOL, seriously, though I visit the personal blogs of friends and fellow photobloggers, but other than that, I really don't hang out on the 'net that much.

    The only place I go that has nothing to do with Raytractors at all is Reddit.com.

    When I am online it's usually to come here or to research something for personal interest or in direct relation to the degree I'm pursuing. And I watch precious little tv, so little that not owning one wouldn't bother me int he least. It's either study or research things.

    That's not really what you asked and I just realized I'm pretty damn boring.

  4. Oh, I thought of something....

    I don't know how I forgot this! One of my favorite blogs is The Last Psychiatrist. It's written by a psychiatrist with a personality about as warm and fuzzy as a wolverine with a fever. I love it.

  5. Ok, not trying to hijack your thread here but I just want to give one example of why I like The Last Psychiatrist so much. From his entry entitled The Truman Show, which dealt with delusions:

    Conspiracy theories provide two very important psychic comforts. First, if someone else is controlling things, then your failures are not entirely your fault. Second, it is a proxy-parent; it is comforting to know that there are powerful individuals closely following, monitoring, and influencing everything. Suddenly, there is no catastrophe that won't be averted; suddenly life has meaning, even if it isn't one you pick.

    Personally, I think he not only nailed the psyche of those that engage in a lot of conspiracy theory type thinking, but also what he said could also apply to religious thinking just as well.

    Ok, gonna shut up now.

  6. I visit this blog called The Intelligent Zone.
    The guy who runs it is MikeWright and he trolls down at a forum called theologyweb.
    He must e the most stupid fundy atheist of all time.I read it just for laughs

  7. Library Thing and Good Reads.

  8. Unfiction Forums, where you can read and play Alternate Reality Games.

    Questionable Content is a web comic which JUST THIS WEEK is dealing with religious/spiritual vs. skepticism/agnosticism.

  9. http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/

  10. http://patriotboy.blogspot.com/
    For humor.
    Someday I'll learn to link.

  11. Right now, I don't think there's another site that I visit (for entertainment) as regularly as this Blog.

    I'm a whore for good music videos, however. And by that, I mean good music being played by capable musicians. Solos, bands, live shows - all of it.

    So, here's something that y'all should enjoy (even if you don't)

  12. "He must e the most stupid fundy atheist of all time."

    There's no such thing as a fundy atheist.

  13. ("He must e the most stupid fundy atheist of all time."

    There's no such thing as a fundy atheist.)
    Read Mike's post here ,here and here.
    And then tell me that he is not a fundy.

  14. MFT,

    There is no such thing as a fundamentalist atheist for the last freaking time.

    That blog you linked to, however, is one of the single most stupid things I have ever seen on the 'net. That has got to be a parody. No one is that stupid.

  15. If you feel a need to annoy yourself with your own ignorance, try this game:


    And this is currently my favorite webcomic:


    I try not to read The Digital Cuttlefish's blog too often lest I begin writing like him. (Her? It? Nobody knows.)


  16. Hi Wee,

    I checked out all three of your links:

    1) I knew about that freakin travel test. I don't get out much. I sucked at it -_-

    2) Today's comic actually made me smile, rather than that internal "Oh, that's amusing...". I think I'll keep an eye on it - thanks :)

    3) I'd run across 'Cuttlefish before, but had forgotten about it. When I started reading through some of his entires, I came across this a bit down the page. It made me laugh out loud (very rare!). You may have seen it, and it wouldn't surprise me if this was familiar to everyone else - but I thought I'd link it here for fun:

    Prop 8 The Musical

  17. a few off the top of my head...


    The last one is not a porn site. It's the site for the James Randi Educational Foundation, a great and worthy organization devoted to skeptical enquiry.
