A Highly Factitious Overview of the U.S. Constitution

As all Americans know, our country recently celebrated Constitution Day, our most cherished holiday since Congress first declared it in...2004. Huh. Anyway, if there's one thing Americans love, it's loving the Constitution. Yet paradoxically, many of us don't actually know the text of our founding document particularly well. Shockingly few citizens can locate the famous "one text, one vote" guarantee, and many believe that the Constitution discusses rights it actually does not (such as the "right to party", which actually comes from France's 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man). Fortunately, I, a renowned expert on constitutionalness, intend to rectify the situation. I have studied the Constitution deeply, distilled it into its essence, and now present it to you in the clearest and, some might say, best, summary possible. So prepare to learn as I unfold the mysteries of the document Rolling Stone called the third greatest human achievement of all time, behind only the wheel and Abbey Road.

The Transition of Terror: A Lovecraftian Personal Essay

Almost a year has passed, and yet still I see it, still I visit it in restless sleep.  No treatment devised by even the cleverest of doctors has yielded relief; laudanum gives no respite, and even the strongest opiates offer but trivial resistance to the horrors of my mind.  Madness, some may call it, and I agree more with every passing nightfall.  Perhaps the tale I shall tell truly is little more than ramblings born of lunacy, but if there be even a modicum of truth in it, then it must be made known.

Tumors, Fetuses, and Diseases oh my! A review of the Mϋtter Museum

Another great guest graces our blog! EOR is a full-time student and a writer at RationalFaiths.com. She believes in the one true universal principle, Keyboard Cat > Grumpy Cat.

I had the opportunity to go to The Mϋtter Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania recently (hereafter referred to as “The Museum”). It isn’t really like other museums in that it is small, poorly lit, and instead of being filled with art it is filled with medical oddities, and other miscellanea relative to the study of the human body.
