This is the sort of stuff George Carlin would have done if he'd thought his fans were smarter.

Speaking of George Carlin, here's part of an old show of his covering how rape is funny, and some things right and wrong with Feminism.

Come on people! This isn't rocket science. XP
I mean, I know correlation doesn't imply causation, but damn, it's not like that's all we have.

So according to Google,Penn Jillette is 6'6". I'm told Harry Browne was taller than Shane Killian (6'2'') and Kane/Glen Jacobs is almost 7 feet tall.
I guess you could say they're *puts on sunglasses* Libertarian Giants. :P

Not libertarians, but the producer/director I'm doing the short with is an inch taller than me, and one of the actors is 2 inches taller.

Also, Lee Graham from Episode 5 of Bogosity is an inch taller than me.

I don't agree with everything perfectly, but most of it is spot on enough to merit a post here.
The deal maker for me was this bit:

Dear OP:  Thank you.  If I had a dollar for every Armchair McExpert who has thrown "starvation/hibernation mode" at me, well, you get the idea.  Moral of the story, unless the person you're lecturing wouldn't look out of place in a picture of post WWII concentration camp victims, starvation mode is 100% irrelevant to them and your best course of action regarding this is to STFU with your so-called 'facts' you got from Yahoo News, Doctor Oz or a P90X/CrossFit commercial.

In even more detail on this topic, is Armi Legge from this article:  http://evidencemag.com/calories-count/
Legge's sources beneath spoiler:

In short, I do my homework.  All you Armchair McExperts are NOT going to bluff your way through this.
An update on this, since I've learned more, yes, metabolic adaption is a thing that happens so there is a grain of truth to the people scaremongering about starvation mode and the stuff David Wong said, but...long story short, adaptation works both ways:

Dude, I'm 5'6"!  What are you complaining about?

...Randy Newman? Shane, you're a meanie! *whimpers and lays in his bed, giving everyone who looks at him cute puppy dog eyes* :P

But back on topic:
"I'm a skeptic, unconformable truths are my specialty!"
"Of course I'm a virgin/don't get invited to parties/etc.  I'm a skeptic. No one wants to be near me because I'll tell them what they need to hear instead of what they want to hear!"
--Two lines, I'm just dying to use irl (or online to a woo) someday. :P

"People act like I'm dogmatic and stubborn and can't be convinced.  Quite the contrary! I love being proven wrong.  For example, I'd like to be proven wrong with government and indeed shown it can work, because getting to that form of government is far more probable than it ever being abolished and achieving anarcho capitalism.  Well, in my lifetime at least."--Me, inspired by a quote by Shane noting that, as a Skeptic he likes being proven wrong.  It just takes evidence, not bogosity, to do that.
