Bill Maher getting his ass handed to him on Islam is making the rounds again today. (x)

The whole exchange is part of a larger segment about Benghazi from May of last year, but The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald really lays it out in black and white.  Given the situation in Gaza, I can see why this clip has had a boost in popularity.

Glenn:  Lots of religions — not just Islam — produce violence.

Bill: That’s a silly, liberal view that all religions are alike because it makes you feel good.

Glenn:  No it makes you feel good to say our side is better because those people over there are —

Bill:  No it makes you feel good to put a crown on your head and say, “I’m a good person.  How do I prove that — “

Glenn:  You get to ignore the responsibility that your own government has for the violence and instability in the world by saying, “Look.  It’s that primitive religion over there that’s to blame.”

This tea is just so flavorful and full of truth.

Let me just say, just because you eat healthily and work out doesn’t necessarily mean you ARE healthy

Being afraid of sugar, a piece of cake, or anything not clean is not “healthy”

Being pissed and anxious and upset and mad at yourself for missing one day of working out is not “healthy”

Your entire life revolving around food, exercising and being healthy is not “healthy”

Just putting that out there

the most perfect post in the world

Tiny Victorian Cottage in the Woods

A dream home in a dream landscape, this tiny Victorian-style cottage used to be a hunting cabin in the Catskills. The amazing transformation was the work of one woman, Sandra Foster, who used vintage columns, flooring and wavy glass windows, and completed the carpentry herself. Most of the items were found at yard sales or crafted by her own hand. A stream runs between Ms. Foster’s cottage and the trailer that she and her husband live in. Some people don’t wait for their dream homes; they make them instead.

Having worked in the number 1 hotel in one of the worlds most visited tourism towns I’ve come to know a thing or two about what to do and what not to do when staying in a hotel.

1. Never book a hotel through a 3rd party booking agent.
That price on Expedia may look cheaper but it won’t…

2) You pay less tax if your house is not a finished building. Therefore no one paints the outside of their house to show it is incomplete.
