For the first time in almost five years, I’m having another Iritis attack. While I’m not fond of the idea of dealing with the red eye again, this is the first time I’ve had an inflammation in half a decade.
So when the eye went from a light pink to a dark red, I went into Emerg and got an immediate referral to an eye specialist and just jumped through the regular series of hoops to get my hands on the drugs I need (Roids) to start fighting this thing back.
It’s the first day of the new work week, which means it’s time for Monday School! Your current go to place for “The Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense You Learned Yesterday”. Your weekly fix for what I like to refer to as reality.
In case some of you are wondering, the title of this entry is not an attempt to pitch my atheist manifesto (link located at bottom of entry) but to discuss one of my biggest peeves when it comes to being an atheist. That being the one thing many believers state when they hear I’m not one of them: just read our book. I cannot count how many times devout believers have suggested that I would no longer be an Atheist if I just took the time to read the bible. That the sole reason why I am a heathen non-believer is because I haven’t crossed their holy book off of my must read list.
There are a few people getting their panties in a bunch over a specific scene in the new Star Trek movie (Into Darkness) about a scene of gratuitous nudity that was completely unnecessary. When I first heard this, I was very confused. I saw the new Trek movie last week, and I don’t remember seeing any T&A at all… not once. Was there a boob flash that I missed? A wardrobe malfunction that was missed by the editors?
Today is Victoria Day in Canada, so welcome to a special holiday edition of Monday School! Even on stat holidays, you are able to get your weekly helping of ‘the Rational Corrective To All That Nonsense You Learned Yesterday!’
Now while some will find this disturbing, I am very sure many of you will roar with laughter at what I am about to show you. The following flyer was found at a college campus. I really wish I was making this up, it’s so ridiculous that one would almost suspect it’s a prank. However, it’s apparently a real rally… to protest evolution!

I’m going start off by saying that I loved watching the first J.J. Abrams directed Star Trek movie. I thought it was brilliant, so I had very high expectations walking in to see “Star Trek Into Darkness”. Not only did this sequel meet my high expectations, the film exceeded them.
Police arrested a suspect over the weekend and then the found the stolen truck a short time later. Yesterday it was announced that they found the charred remains of the young man who went missing in Hamilton over a week ago. Based on what we are being told by police there was no chance of ever finding him alive, the victim was murdered the same night he was taken. Based on the circumstances, this is the end I saw coming… though I was hoping for the best, I was also prepared for the worst.
