    (OK… so where’s the info on everyone’s favorite Q’Transmissions drinking game(s)?! I can’t be alone! ….Frak) Another small “pimpin’ moment”: Sat, March 7 @ Tory B-95 is IDEAfest – a series of small presentations, goin’ all day, truly interesting topics, come on out (brave the cold!), listen to some interesting ideas, engage in deep/meaningful discussions, and stretch your brain. I dare ya! “So say we all!”

    Here are a few links regarding the correlation found that may link atheism to intelligence. The first is a Wikipedia entry:


    And here’s a news article from across the pond:

    During the show, we got an email question about fictional atheists in the military, and I thought of one more. If anyone else can add to this list, please do.

    Benjamin “Hawkeye” Pierce – M*A*S*H
    Yossarian – Catch-22
    Joker – Full Metal Jacket

    I’m certain that a few more have appeared with all the Vietnam movies that have been produced.

    Thanks for those links! That was an amazing show!! As it happens so often, perfect timing – I watched “Taking Chance” as couple of days ago (it’s amazing what one will watch while under the influence of NyQuil) and was wondering about Atheists in the military. Great work everyone!!! Thanks for the insight into the military Paul.

    Souxie, I’m going to talk about the Q Transmissions Drinking Game on the next show.

    Funny enough, you are not the only one who has asked for details.

    Our fans are my kind of people. 😉

    So say we all.

    As the first member of the fanclub I guess I could hammer out the rules for the game

    So say we all (indeed).

    Nathan, that would be lovely!

    If anyone else would like to get involved with that project… talk to the man.

    You may feel more comfortable with a mental health professional who is a woman or with a support group for women. ,
