Here’s an idea: thought’s main purpose is to make sense of our environment in order to survive in it and make more humans, right? Which is why there’s no real thought inside the womb; it isn’t needed to avert death. You’ve got everything you need: umbilical sustenance, amniotic protection, big-screen TV. So this would logically […]

My goal is to become the first site Googled for the “Shia LaBoeuf” search string. I will attempt to mention Shia as much as possible, and I encourage all and sundry to make references as well, attaching a guzzling cakes hyperlink to his name like so: I find Shia LaBoeuf to be a seminal actor […]
