“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending.

“Poison death shot”? Maybe

When it comes to the not-vaxx, I don’t tend to put much stock in the view that the vaccine is a deliberately engineered infertility, impotence, or genocide shot. I certainly don’t think it’s effective, and I have deep reservations about the mRNA...

Don’t get high on your own supply

A few years back, our good friend The Male Brain brought an internet flame-war to my attention that I thought merited its own post. Normally, I could not care less about such silliness. But the flame-war in question concerned a man who used to be a pretty big deal in...
