Some questions are quite easy to answer with a simple yes or no. For example, when the Governor of Indiana was asked to answer yes or no to the question, “Do you think it should be legal in the state of Indiana to discriminate against gays and lesbians?” He was unable to answer no. Instead he responded in a few sentences which allude his answer. But he didn’t say no. Why wouldn’t he say no? He was asked to answer yes or no and he could not. If you look at studies about people who lie you will discover that avoiding the “yes or no” answer is a key indicator for someone who is trying to hide the truth.

Another way to know if a politician is lying: their lips are moving.

”[W]hen I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court]? And I say, ‘When there are nine.’ People are shocked. But there’d been nine men, and nobody’s ever raised a question about that.” – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I’m a dreamer. Not as in I dream when I sleep, I mean I do dream, mostly nightmares, but that’s not what I mean. I’m an idea man. I have lots of ideas and I write most of them down. But I’m not always able to execute on the ideas. But that doesn’t make the idea less important — or does it?

FAQ:
Q:Why don’t you do show notes?
A: I don’t believe in them. The “Experience” is made to be heard not seen. Although I do sometimes take some podcast pieces and post them as blog entries – but it’s not the same experience and not the exact same content.

There are times when I feel I need to make a point. My brain shouts, “A point must be made!” But then, as I work my way through whatever concept it is, I can’t seem to make a coherent point (or even a good one) and it bothers me. And suddenly, it no longer bothers me because it’s all about capturing my stream of consciousness — it doesn’t have to make a point. This is how I get a gaggle of related/unrelated ideas, facts, and make believe stuff, out of my brain and out in the open. That’s my goal. If a point is made, it’s just a random happenstance.

So bare with me (because I want us all to get naked) as I start with the Peter Principle, a management theory— wait, don’t turn away yet, it’s actually interesting and relevant — and then into the ridiculousness of the media, the world around us, eCigs, science, conspiracies, death, treason, gayness, men with no arms, things not to say at work (hint, it starts with ‘cunt’), and other random stuff.

Oh, and you don’t click it, it clicks you. :)

TRJE 277

“A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.” – Max Planck (1858–1947)

It’s not unusual for me to be fixated on names for I am the possessor of several. I wonder if I would have this much trouble with my name if I was only known by a number — wait, one of my names is a number! So many labels and so many names, it’s difficult to know which to use and when. I’m definitely uncomfortable with my birth name. It was given to me by people who didn’t even know me. And while that legal name is important (and websites seem to always want you to use it), it is just not me.

So if you ask me for my name, or ask who I am, if the time is right, if the stars are aligned, when Yin becomes Yang — I will tell you my real name — I’ll say, “I’m Regis Jack motherfucker. A name given to me by God. And your a cunt.”

I’ve been watching the miscellaneous hosts on the Late late Show recently and I’ve noticed it is a much more difficult job then I thought. Many of the guest hosts are not very good at it. Craig Ferguson set the bar pretty high. I can tell they are pairing hosts and guests so that the guests can help move things along if needed. But so far, the best guest host has been Raj from the Big Bang Theory, the best guest hosted Late Late Show (the entire show) so far has been with Will Arnett (his final show), and the funniest guest hosted Late Late Show was hosted by the hilarious Thomas Lennon.

But as I said, Craig set the bar pretty high and James Cordon (aka The Lodger, even though he wasn’t the lodger, but he was in the Doctor Who episode title, ‘The Lodger’ where Matt Smith played The Lodger and James played the father of Stormaggedon, Dark Lord of All — anyway I call him the Lodger because of all of that) should feel the pressure. And I am excited to see James on the Late Late Show.
