Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
Skirts for Guys
A skirt has been invented for beer-drinking men. What an innovation. Yawn.
The skirt-for-guys movement is nothing new. The image linked below is from a 1998 article, and of course people have been trying to pressure guys into wearing skirts since long before that. I’m afraid I don’t understand this. There’s no mad rush to bring back Roman numerals or sundials, so why does everyone want to get guys into togas and then claim credit for it?
I just love this quote “…once one everyone realises how comfortable they are, I think they’ll really catch on.” Haven’t the Scottish Highlanders been wearing kilts since the dark ages? They haven’t “caught on” and here’s the reason why: Comfortable as they may be, as sleek and stylish as they may look when you’re walking around, you can’t do guy stuff in a skirt. About the only guy-thing a skirt makes easier is peeing, and even that is something you can’t do & look manly at the same time.
This blog has a tradition of pointing out “hey, there’s an elephant in the room” when few other commentators will do so — especially in the realm of gender relations. Here’s the elephant in the room: Men and women are different, and this difference makes some people uncomfortable. Wherever people try to coerce men to act like women, that’s what’s going on and with very few exceptions, that is all that is going on. Meanwhile…since life must go on, there are ladders to be climbed & leaves to be cleaned from gutters — motorycles to be driven, coffee tables waiting for just one foot to be put on them, sailboats to be jumped on from docks, etc., real men are going to be leaving the skirt-wearing to the women.
There are lots of things women do better naturally, than any man, even when the man has been practicing at it. Wearing skirts is one of them.
