“How often it is that the angry man rages denial of what his inner self is telling him.” – Frank Herbert



Bible and Boobs

As a general rule, people take themselves WAY too seriously. Whether you’re at the gym, playing video games, or challenging friends to a game of pool – it’s likely that there will be very little smiling and jesting involved. Apparently, doing chest flies at the gym requires a whole lot of frowning and stink-eye.

And these aren’t even controversial or fundamentally important parts of most people’s lives. So, when you get into topics that vindicate or validate a person’s sense of worth and identify – forget about it. Making light of those things are almost exclusively forbidden.

So, on that note, here is one of the funniest videos circulating the internet that makes fun of both religion and politics.

Watch here… at your own risk!



Bravery In Numbers

People have different ways of defining what makes a “hero,” and subsequently, who we choose to be our hero. Who we look up to might be very different than our fellow neighbor’s or friend’s choice.

Some people’s hero is Jesus Christ. For others, it’s Martin Luther King. Others might look to our President for guidance and inspiration. I (personally) look to John Oliver and Mike Rowe as godly leaders.

Little kids are even more likely to have heroes. From Superman to Batman to the Paw Patrol – their heroes come with actual capes and super powers, making them exponentially cooler than ours.

But not all heroes have prestigious jobs or wear awesome costumes. Some heroes can be found among us – just living their lives like the rest of us, totally under the radar.

Like this young man who is quickly gaining notoriety for his courageous and bold act recently at an airport.

Inside New Zealand’s Lost Hippy Commune

Hidden at the very top of New Zealand’s Coromandel Peninsula and accessible only by off-road track is the Mahana commune. Founded in 1978, for nearly 40 years its inhabitants have been elusive. Their story has gone largely unreported. But now, parts of the utopian dream are turning sour.
