Random Thoughts: Science, Commencement Addresses, and the 1st Amendment

Posted on May 21, 2014 9:00 am

So were the hipsters open-carrying at Chipotle wielding black-powder pistols?

We’ll have more trust in science when people learn to separate it from scientists.

I have trouble believing anyone who argues with “X% of scientists believe this!” has any useful science knowledge.

What’s even the point of a commencement address in this job market? Who needs a big speech before moving back in with their parents?

A little confusing that we needed an amendment to end slavery but gay marriage was hidden in the Constitution all along.

Realizing that the Founding Fathers had hidden gay marriage in the Constitution could be a plot for National Treasure III.

You either get to be a bigot or a fascist. Pick your side.

When the Founding Fathers wrote the 1st Amendment, they never considered that in the future people might get their feelings hurt.

What if the terrorists found and attacked the hidden valley where we make all our ranch dressing? This nation would grind to a halt.

    What if the terrorists found and attacked “Pleasant Valley” where we keep all our anti-gravity devices? This nation would fall apart.

    I for one am looking forward to gawking at all of those nekkid, undressed ranches after the terrorists attack the Hidden Valley.

    …Then Putin will send the Russian navy to annex the Thousand Islands while France and Italy will claim it’s an attempt to declare himself Caesar of the salad dressing market. The US will send aid to the Islanders in the form of croutons and bacon bits.

    I just read a quote from a Richard Whately that is as profound:

    “Everyone wishes to have truth on his side, but not everyone wishes to be on the side of truth.”
