Louis C.K. on Saturday Night Live: skeptical of skeptics

Last night, Louis C.K. was the guest host on Saturday Night Live. Here’s an excerpt from his very funny opening stand-up comedy:

“I’m not religious. I don’t know if there’s a God. That’s all I can say honesty is, I don’t know. Some people think that they know that there isn’t. That’s a weird thing to think you can know. ‘Yeah, there’s no God.’ Are you sure? ‘Yeah, no, there’s no God.’ How do you know? ‘Because I didn’t see him.’ There’s a vast universe. You can see for about a hundred yards when there’s not a building in the way. How could you possibly — did you look in everywhere? Did you look in the downstairs bathroom? ‘Nah, I haven’t seen him yet.’ I haven’t seen 12 Years A Slave yet. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” (To the best of my DVR transcription skills.)

And a bit earlier in his opening act, this:

“I don’t think women are better than men, but I do think men are worse than women.”

Take a look at this New York Times article on Saturday Night Live: “The God of ‘SNL’ will see you now.”


Knowledge-worker productivity

Paul Reiser of "Mad About You" at 20...Paul Reiser once said historians will one day record that our cities were built as construction workers stood around and whistled at women — and the buildings just appeared.

Now I realize how “knowledge workers” get their tasks done. They sit in meetings, and books are written, reports are filed, youth are educated, projects are planned — just like that, as if the pressure between the posterior and the chair yields paper print-outs and computer codes.


I stopped by The Pain Center to see if they could help me get rid of my dog. Turns out the center is staffed by six IRS agents and a DMV receptionist. I waited six hours before they hit me with a $300 canine tax. I’ll give ’em this much: they know pain.

This church sign needs a caption; please comment with your suggestion

Gives a whole new meaning to “praise the Lord and pass the ammunition”?

Must see!

So to put it all in a nutshell, I can’t put it in a nutshell.

On attending certain churches

They will say, “You don’t have to check your brain at the door,” but what they really mean is, “We never check our brains at the door,” but if they knew what you knew and walked into those sanctuaries, they would be checking their brains at the door.
