So, last night, while I was reading my friggin' accounting textbook, I had Mythbusters playing in the background. It was the one where they break a wine glass using the unassisted human voice. It was pretty intense. I thought it was awesome. The most awesome thing I've seen in quite a while.

I'm an atheist and have been one all my life. It's not a good idea to proselytise within hearing range of me because I most happily argue the subject and really need to figure out how to make that pay better.

I also learned long ago that, even if she's an atheist, if I want a companion sans Y-chromosome there's going to be some esoteric crap in the mix. I can live with it. But discussing it with me? No. Uh-uh. Very Bad Idea™. I'm more likely to let you bend me over the counter with a strap-on but to edit and post the video to YouPorn than put up with such a conversation.
