no good reason... maybe he's just a happy human?
or maybe he just realized his hand smells like onions...

The word "atheist"... is just a term made up by religious folk to describe the people who refuse to buy into their delusions.
In fact... the word is almost an insult.
It's like... we need a word to describe people who don't believe in... what? a christian god?
I read a blog somewhere that asked (and I'm paraphrasing) the fabulous question... "So what do we call christians that don't believe in Thor? That's a god... What's the dif?"

Life without friends... is just life. But with friends... it's Life-a-Go-Go.
... and everything's better when you tack on "a-go-go"!!
