Currently, an animal has to die in order for you to enjoy it. This is not quite the same as "Every time you masturbate, God kills a kitten," but it's close.

The show will get better as time goes by. A return listen to some earlier episodes of other favorite podcasts reveals that they weren't all that great at first compared to what they would later become, much like suffering through early episodes of the Simpsons, which was initially just an animated sitcom with a nice, happy, feel-good ending. 13GNE cannot fairly be judged against other podcasts that have been around for years; it needs to be compared to its own past episodes.

As far as the irregular schedule of the show, different people have different patterns of podcast listening, no doubt, and my pattern is to listen to a bunch of episodes of any given podcasts in a row. So if there are no 13GNEs available for a few weeks, there are thousands of other podcasts to tie me over in the meantime. Which is not to say that the episodes shouldn't keep coming, but most listeners will understand that it's kind of a difficult job to put out an hour-long episode every week.

One can purchase a Nalgene® reusable water bottle or similar product and fill it up in the morning at home or, if one has a water cooler or fountain there, fill it at work.

If artists want to give their music away, they do so on their websites. People do not have the right to just "share" intellectual property without compensation to the artist. And it's a bullshit argument that there are no lost sales because people who listen and like will buy while those who don't would never have bought the album, movie, TV show anyway. If I would never have bought some other product, like say a car, I don't just get to keep the car. So if you stream a song and like it, much like test driving a car, you then have the option to buy it. If someone were somehow able to give you an instant copy of a vehicle, much like sharing an MP3, whether or not you decided you liked it, you still have an automobile that you didn't pay for. And the more that people file share, the less profit there is for the artist, which in turn might take away a lot of incentive for said artist to make him music, craft, etc., and the higher the price of the product for those who purchase legally.

Children should still be discouraged from engaging in sexual intercourse, but should nonetheless be made aware that there is a such thing as safer sex to combat teen pregnancy and the transmission of STDs.

Some things, like cows, feel pain. Others, like rocks, do not. If, to the best of our knowledge, a thing cannot feel pain, then we have no moral responsibility towards it. On the other hand, if something can experience pain, we ought not hurt it.

You don't have a choice when coming into this world, but you definitely have a choice when going out. If you want to end your life and are unable to do so on your own, people should be allowed to help you, provided there are witnesses to attest that you wanted to end your life (to avoid murder under the guise of suicide).

Kicking the ball only requires thinking about two dimensions, versus the three dimensions involved with slugging a baseball or softball, making the game more enjoyable to the less-athletically inclined.

Just because it might feel better to think there is life after death is no reason to live in self-delusion. And while faith might cause some people to do good (which is immoral, since they simply act on a reward/punishment system), it was also responsible for September 11th.

Everyone is born an atheist. They have to be taught about the existence of nonsense like sky gods. Atheism is simply the default.

Legalizing marijuana would be a crucial first step in ending the ridiculous War on Drugs. Over half of the population of federal prisons are drug offenders. Valuable resources that could be used to deter real crime are being spent on arresting, prosecuting, and imprisoning drug offenders. And as unhealthy as drugs are to people's health, it should be their choice whether or not they put substances into their bodies.

The police are rarely present when a crime is committed, and it is ultimately up to the individual citizen to be able to protect himself in the case of a home invasion.

There is no such thing as a "bad" word. Words are just words. The fact that you cannot be offended by a foreign "bad" word because you do not know its meaning shows that the mere utterance the sounds are not the problem. The fact that people use alternate words to mean the same thing, such as "crap" for "shit" or "frak" for "fuck," shows that the meaning of the word is also not the problem. So what other reason could there possibly be to avoid the use of a certain set of letters and phonics arranged in a particular order? The only reason I can think of is that society has arbitrarily deemed certain words as vulgar. I blame the Puritans. I'm an equal opportunity linguist and think that every word should be used when appropriate, including "douche bag."
