Self-Help Corner

These wonderful books offer encouraging advice on how to do things despite advancing years, but the last one seems a bit odd.  I don't know if you really should be doing that.

 

You can shoot 70

You can things 40

You can look 20

You can things

You can dave barry

And I don't know why this guy is even offering this advice.

Podcast: Beginnings

Beginnings mza_7276526457656839010.170x170-75

 

I was a guest on Andy Beckerman's podcast Beginnings, and the episode was just released.  It was a great time, and the podcast has an interesting premise: he talks to creative people not about their careers, but about their childhoods and formative years.  I've listened to a number of episodes and they are very good -- Andy is a probing and unpredictable interviewer, and the results are fascinating and a lot of fun.  Anyway, we had a lot of laughs.

A word about this week's comic

Based on the comments that have appeared in response to the Creationism Math comic, I just wanted to make a couple of points:

 

1.  Some people have pointed out reasons, justifications and explanations for the supposed Biblical errors brought up in the comic.  (And by the way, there are many other examples, including errors in basic counting.)  I'm not saying in the comic that it's impossible to explain away "errors" in the Bible.  Over the centuries, some of the greatest minds of humanity have used exquisite creativity to explain away difficult passages in holy texts.  I'm saying that the particular character in this comic has taken a very literal approach to these passages, and refuses to bend that interpretation to the realities of "secular" mathematics.  This is obviously an analogy to the very hard-line Creationists who could take one of the many options for interpreting Genesis specifically, or faith generally, to line up with geological and biological facts, but instead insist on literalism.

 

2.  The point of the comic, therefore, is not to make fun of people of faith.  What I'm making fun of, and where I draw the line, is people who not only take this literalist view of religious text, but also insist that it replace or inform scientific learning in schools.

THIS WEEK'S "CLASSIC" (I.E., OLD) TOM THE DANCING BUG: NEW WINTER OLYMPIC EVENTS

From the 2002 Winter Olympics.

 

Td140206

 

I have no recollection of making this decision (12 years ago!), but I'm sure that I drew the Tom the Dancing Bug logo as an inside joke to myself.  I subtly evoked the Mad Magazine logo because this comic used the format and structure of a Mad article.
