Brother - In - Law likes to make a Big Deal out of the whole Sant v. menorrah thing and during the holidays at my Mom's house would stir the pot with all the little ones about how the Jews got gifts for 8 nights, not just one. The vaguely Christian kids would retaliate by pointing out the Jewish kids got only one or two gifts a night while they got a shit load of gifts all on one night. The shitstorm of Jewish kids wanting to be Christian and vice versa got so bad one year Mom put her foot down and announced that no-one could come to her house anymore for the holidays. From then on she would travel and rotate around from family to family each year. Seeing as the siblings live in very different parts around the country, it means grandkids see their grandma for the holidays about once every four years.

Needless to say, my brother-in-law is not very popular with the rest of the family.


your brother in law sounds like a major douche...or since he is Jewish, maybe he is a major mikvah.


He can be. In his defense, he is mellowing out and getting much better. Also, I have learned to constantly refill his glass during the traditional after dinner bourbon rounds as he gets real sleepy real quick.

A group of atheists and agnostics hope to spread their views through public advertisements that are to start appearing today on public buses in metro Detroit.

"Don't believe in God? You're not alone," reads the ads that are to be placed on a dozen buses across the region. They were paid for by the Detroit Area Coalition of Reason, which spent $5,250 on the ads with the help of their national group, the United Coalition of Reason. It's part of a nationwide effort that has targeted more than 20 cities across the U.S. by placing such ads on buses, subways and billboards, organizers said.

Beth Dryden, spokeswoman for the SMART bus system, said the advertising was in compliance with their policies and cleared with their legal department.

"We don't want to offend anyone," Dryden said. "But because we are a government agency, we are beholden to the First Amendment."

The Detroit coalition consists of several atheist and agnostic groups, said Ruthe Milan, 54, an atheist who is the coalition's coordinator.

"We want to increase visibility of nontheistic organizations," Milan said. "We can improve our outreach."

Milan said the message is not meant to offend.

There is a God. I was talking some real shit about him around 3 AM last night and then again ealier this evening when all of my shit went to pieces (think three disserataions, but they're due Monday and we just kicked off the flight home two days ago). Then from nowhere the data that would not run and the equation that would not align did. Two of three. Holy-fucking-shit, there is light. 'fina go home. Cross this pig-in-shit-happy, short-term plans, and pre-drunk.

Where in the hell were you when they scheduled this upcoming meeting? Didn't occur to you that having to work on Sunday's might cut into the whole attendance-at-church thing?

I am just so fucking sick of religion. Really, I used to be tolerant of it, but you know what, they don't return the favor. Fuck religion. Fuck it right up its asshole. Equal opportunity, all religions, seriously, go fuck yourselves and leave me alone. P.S. the rest of the modern world thinks we're a bunch of backwards asswipes on par with the sharia motherfuckers with all this God this and God that in our public discourse. We may have got it from them originally, but they've moved on. Time for us to do the same.
