Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager

Comedian and podcaster Adam Carolla and talk radio host and author Dennis Prager made waves a few months ago by conducting a live on-stage talk before an audience. Hard to believe? Not really, once you’ve heard them when they get rolling.

Carolla had Prager on his podcast two days ago, and trust me, you need to listen to this episode of the show. It’s both funny and thought-provoking.

At the top of the show, Adam talks about his enjoyment of Dennis Prager’s book, ‘Still The Best Hope’. The guys talk about their upcoming tour together, and why their on-stage chemistry is so charged. Adam then talks with Dennis about a variety of issues in America, including the hypocrisy of beliefs, the importance of parental care, and why we’re really the least racist society in human history.

Later, Adam talks with Dennis about earning your self-esteem as opposed to just being given a trophy for arriving. Adam also talks about the unnecessary step to get fingerprinted to coach his kids’ baseball team, and Dennis discusses the ‘sin’ of offending people. The guys also chat about the ineffectiveness of diversity training, and the mistreatment of smokers in our society. As the show wraps up, Adam praises Dennis for his patience and respect when talking with people who disagree with him.

HBO’s miniseries “The Pacific” starts Sunday

I’ve been eagerly awaiting this miniseries since I saw the first trailer, despite my recent misgivings thanks to Tom Hanks’ asshattery. Here’s a little history that sets the stage for the first episode.

In partnership with HBO, The U.S. Naval Institute has collected a great wealth of historical information on the the Pacific Theater of World War II. For further reading, try any (or all) of these books:

Video: flying pit bulls

Now this is a great way to showcase the amazing athleticism of pit bulls.

I hate the barbaric practice of dog fighting, and I know from personal experience that a well-trained pit bull is a smart, loyal, gentle, loving, eager-to-please family pet. I grew up with one who was six months younger than I, and he lived to be 16. Had a burglar broken into the house, he would have licked him to death.

I have no idea why this starts with footage of a guy in tighty whities in a fireworks fight. Then again, guys like that don’t need a reason, do they?
