dimland radio 4-24-10 show notes

Another fabulous show! Just me rambling on. No, I mean, just me making brilliant points and commentary as usual.

Theater of the mind

I mentioned this last week, but I wanted to promote it again. Z Talk Radio is doing something way cool. They are playing old time radio shows after Paradigm Shift (Fridays 10 - midnight central) and Dimland Radio. When my show ends Saturday Scare Fest begins and you can listen to the theater of the mind shows of the horror and mystery genre. After Paradigm Shift, it's Frontier Fridays where you'll hear old westerns such as the Lone Ranger, Gunsmoke and others.

Oral surgery insurance payment denial?

I talked about getting a notice in the mail stating that the oral surgery I received last month wouldn't be paid for. What?! Before I had the procedure we got the approval for coverage, so what's the deal? Turns on the surgery was covered under our medical. The notice we received was from dental and it was the dental insurance that didn't cover. Why do they do that?

South Park insults Islam

I went over some of the goings on with the South Park (it's still airing?) depicting Mohammed in a bear suit. Matt Stone and Trey Parker were "warned" by an American-based radical Islamic group that what they did was insulting to the Prophet and Islam.

A young female skeptic found it so ridiculous that some Iranian cleric blamed earthquakes on the fact that women dressed immodestly she decided to respond. Jennifer McCreight, a Purdue University student, started as a joke a Facebook page called Boobquake. She's encouraging women to sign up on that page and post their cleavage photos. Boobquake day will be Monday April 26, 2010. Can't wait to check it out, I'm not sure why.

Let's hope there's not an earthquake on Monday.

Edward Current

Edward Current is an atheist who poses as a fundamentalist Christian in a series of video on YouTube meant to satirize the Christian viewpoint. He's not for everyone, but I think he's pretty funny and worth checking out.

I mention the "miracle" on the Hudson and my views on that I also correct Edward Current's error in mentioning that Jesus was born without sin. Wrong! His mother was born without sin. Mary was the Immaculate Conception, not Jesus.

You can find the video I talk about and more here.

MN Twins Sunday game jinx?

You know I'm a skeptic and I don't believe in jinxes, but I still find it annoying that the only Twins' games I get to watch (Sunday afternoons, mostly) are usually losses. I don't know why it is, but every game I've been able to watch so far this season my Twins lose. Grumble, grumble.

Music heard on the show...
