@4 You'll notice I mentioned the horrible mismanagement. I'm not absolving the CEOs of responsibility for the situation - they're the ones who drove it into the ground - but the cold fact is that where the company stands now the money simply isn't there. They had basically two choices - cut their employees' pay, or close their doors. The union(s) wouldn't take the deal so now the doors will close and all those people will have no income instead of less income. Also, your link doesn't work.

"This demand for entitlement has reached a peculiar stage. It doesn't matter if the money isn't there, those making demands still want their checks anyway. Where the money comes from isn't a concern, that the money isn't there in the first place isn't a concern, that the checks are written against an account that does not exist isn't a concern. Explaining the math to those making the demands does not work. Apologists for the Bakers Union are left saying that it is the responsibility of Hostess to provide a job whether it can be afforded or not."

Dan, Dan, Dan. I love your sex and relationship advice to bits, but you might want to look past the surface on economic issues. Number one, it is not that Hostess doesn't want to pay its laborers - it's that it CAN'T. There was some horrible mismanagement, they went to a bankruptcy judge and said judge RULED that they could (and indeed would have to) cut their employees' salaries as a measure to prevent their doors closing; but the union(s) refused to accept the ruling since apparently to their thinking it's better to have no salary than a smaller salary.

@69, which makes General George Patton an interesting case, (whether you believe in reincarnation or not) since he believed that he had been reincarnated many times, and always as an ordinary soldier, never anyone famous.

I'm inclined to believe that the problem is not with any particular religion, but rather with the people who interpret it. ANY religion, ANY creed, can be selectively interpreted and twisted around to justify whatever horrible proclivities some people possess.

@39, no, your path is not wrong. The productive, compassionate and fulfilling life is the point; whatever that means to you or to anybody else.

Just FYI - I'm pagan, and we generally DON'T believe that every other tribe, prophet, and science-fiction writer got it wrong. There are so many different kinds of pagan who worship so many different gods/beings/ideas and very few of us would ever be so arrogant as to assume that ours is the One True Faith. There are many paths to the Water of Life, but every path that leads there is the right one.

It's amazing how some of the questions my husband and I bring up with each other about our sex life come up in the podcast if I just keep listening. He expressed an interest in chemical bondage, I'm open to it, we were both pondering whether we could possibly do it, and now boom, here's the answer.

@23, No, jizzing on baby is not possible unless there is something really, really wrong and if that were the case you wouldn't be having sex anyway. The cervix is stopped up tight during pregnancy, there's a mucus plug in there, ain't nothin' getting in or out till it's time.

I can see how pregnancy might goob someone out in the last trimester - you can actually *see* the baby moving inside the abdomen, like something right out of Alien.

I'm not voting for either fascist warmonger, thank you. I'm sick of the two-party system - the lesser of two evils is still evil. I'd rather vote my conscience. And I support marriage equality, I do; but I think it's just a tiny bit more important that our government STOP KILLING PEOPLE OVERSEAS. Obama hasn't stopped it, he's made it worse, so I ain't voting for the bastard.
