What the Hell Is Going On?

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Hard to tell given the piece contains these two remarks:

"Variety reports that The Jetsons now has a put pilot order from ABC."
". . . there's certainly no pilot order imminent, nor is there a network attached."

Apparently, it's a series set in the future in a time after editors.

I heard about a new subculture today: Nerdfighteria.

I don't get it.

They have a whole channel on Hot to Adult.
There's a wiki for that:

Just this morning I was thinking about my gay daughter and considering whether it's simply easier for young people to not have to figure out the opposite sex. We all know how frustrating it can be trying to figure out the other side, and I wonder if - in the current climate of tolerance - many people are deciding it's not worth the effort. I know my life would be easier, though probably not as rich, if my wife was more like me.

Hmm... I have not thought about it that much. I have seen some articles about how sex is easy for people to get and, therefore, hetero-normative couplings and marriage are sure to go the way of the dodo. I think that alarmist bunk is basically horse apples meant to get momma/grandma/wosbald to start clutching their pearls because sex is not even a main reason people marry now^.

^ See as example Stutzer et.al. and Johnson, Caughlin, & Huston.

That's pretty good. I was trying to wangle something about Goose's cat proving it was a part of nature, but you definitely win.
