Let’s Talk About Our Planet – Pt.1 – Refuting Common Arguments Against Climate Change

Climate Change is Real. We Need to Do Something About it

lmclimate

My title should state the obvious, in telling you what today’s topic is. Climate change is, indeed, a real and devastating issue we face right now.

The beginning stages can already be seen in the increase of natural disasters and extreme weather around the globe, along with mountains of scientific evidence all pointing to the conclusion that, yes, the earth is getting much warmer. And yes, emissions from industrial pollution play a huge role.

Aggression

Let’s rant.

People seem to respond to aggression differently, and they seem to have different perceptions of what being aggressive is.

Well, those who read my blog know me to the extent that I like to keep things as factual as possible. So, here’s the actual definition of aggression: Continue reading

Writers: Don’t do NaNoWriMo. Please. Don’t do it.

Great analysis on how NaNoWriMo can damage a writer’s mindset on the craft, or ruin their passion all together.

As stated, it’s not about how fast you put the nails in, and bang out a house that can be blown over by wind from the slightest bit of plot critique. It’s about the quality of the nails, their precision and function within the structure, and the overall appeal of the finished product.

Once again, great job, Sean.

Let’s say you’re a writer. Perhaps you’re starting out for the very first time hoping to write that novel you’ve been dreaming about for a long time. Maybe you’ve had some writing experience but haven’t really taken the plunge. Today is October 16, and in a few weeks, on November 1, an event that is ostensibly custom-made for you will begin: National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). As a writer myself, I have a simple piece of advice for you.

Don’t do it. Don’t do NaNoWriMo.

Before the writers in my audience go to their WordPress readers and unsubscribe my blog, before they unfollow me on Twitter or un-like all my articles, before they send a mob of peasants with torches and pitchforks to hunt me down for speaking this blasphemy, let me explain. Just hear me out.

I believe that NaNoWriMo is a net negative for new writers. I think…

“If I Can Do It, So Can You” – REFUTED (Thursday Thoughts)

keep-calm-and-toughen-up-princess-2

Another social stigma to debunk. Yay!

This has been done before, but I’m tired, cranky, and I’ve been on Facebook (the cesspool/breeding ground of more recent social attitudes – bad and good), so I’m going to do it again.

Recently I saw this quote posted from a friend, who I won’t name, that was trying to be inspirational to some extent. I respect him for that. The intention is certainly well meaning, although the message is mucky. Perhaps they don’t understand why that is, so I hope this blog will educate them. Hope it also educates others who either believe in this nonsense, or have been told it by someone else. Continue reading

Combating Ignorance : Anita Sarkeesian, ISIS, and Muslims.

Combating Ignorance : Anita Sarkeesian, ISIS, and Muslims.

Heads up people, as this blog post is going to seem pretentious to some of you. As a disclaimer, I will say up front that I am no better, or no worse than anyone else, in the sense of being partially to blame for some of the ignorant behavior I’m going to be talking about, and refuting. I also want to say that though I may have participated in some of this at one point or another, I’ve grown past it and have learned what kind of indirect damage some of these things can cause, and the truth behind them. Due to the length of this article, I won’t be able to use too many examples, but enough for you to get the picture.

Listen America, About Your Guns…

Canada already has decent gun regulation. Our background checks are far more thorough, we have psychological and safety testing for our long-guns, and further testing and permits for our hand-guns and more lethal firearms. Canada, is doing OK for gun control.
