While I’m at it, there’s one more gem from Roll to Disbelieve that I want to preserve.  Also from last month, Captain Cassidy did an article on MLM hunbots.  Now back when I was in high school in the 70’s, my Dad got recruited into Amway, and really tried hard to build himself a business, so I know a few things about MLMs.  And since then, I’ve been hunzoned a couple of times.

Our religions don’t make us who we are. We just are who we are, and we learn to tell different stories about ourselves. We simply change lenses through which we see ourselves. That’s all.

And then I found this gem from Captain Cassidy at Roll to Disbelieve:

These are worthy of T-shirts!  I wish I could write like that.
