    Fantastic site. How long will I last at the Pi Lamb reunion tonight?

    • Gregor says:

      Long enough to help paint the full picture of what’s going on with Eddie Gee. Oh, and hopefully long enough to call out Paul Favor for being an Asshole.

  2. Sarah says:

    All women think they are great at sex. Is it because once a guy orgasims, he says “wow, that was great?”

    • Gregor says:

      We think we’re great at sex because we are great at sex. Women, Men, Dogs, Caterpillars, Barbi Dolls, We’re ALL Great At Sex. If you’re not enjoying what you’re getting, then it’s your own fault. As a friend of mine likes to say, “You’re responsible for your own orgasm.” And if complaining gets you off, feel free to post your complaints. Oh, baby!

    The Socialists won in France. Do you think it’s a conspiracy with our Socialist President right here in the US of A?

    • Vince says:

      I get the question. When Dubya was the resident of the White House, it seemed like a conspiracy that all of the heads of state, even fucking Canada, were from the extreme right wing conservative parties.

      • Gregor says:

        I think it’s great to see the people of France reject the idea of socking it to the poor, as if everyone, including the rich, shouldn’t be part of resolving the debt crisis. By the way, let’s not forget, it was the French who warned us that there were no Weapons of Mass Destruction. Maybe it’s time for us to stop villifying words we don’t really know anything about, like “Socialism.”

    Medicare is “socialism” on steriods. And every senior LOVES it! Especially t baggers! But your correct when you say we don’t know understand it. And when t baggers say “keep government out of my medicare,” well I guess that says it all!

  5. Don says:

    Is it better to be loved or feared?

    • Gregor says:

      Feared. Love opens you up to be abused. Caring about someone else, or hoping for something to go your way, only makes you vulnerable. Vladmir Putin is clearly on to something. He gets what he wants, when he wants it, period. He doesn’t have to ask; he doesn’t have to ask twice; he doesn’t have to waste his time volunteering to prove he’s worthy. He wins. That’s what Vladmir Putin does: he wins, guaranteed. The protestors are afraid, the journalists are afraid, the world is afraid. But he’s exactly where he wants to be. Love works in songs. Fear works in life.

    What does “it is what it is” mean?

    • Gregor says:

      “It Is What It Is” means the same thing as “We Agree To Disagree.” In other words, it means you’re too much of a pussy to reach into your thoughts and emotions and express something you’re uncomfortable with. It’s like switching the conversation, when it gets heated, from the topic to the tone. If you’re a drug addict, or even worse, Republican, it’s a game called “Taking The Focus Off The Focus.” To be Brutal, to be Frank, when someone says to you, “It’s difficult to explain,” what they’re really saying is you’re not worth the effort and if you’re unhappy with my response, “Go Fuck Yourself.” But truthfully, the self-denying pseudo-polite way of saying Go Fuck Yourself is to say, “It Is What It Is.”

    I need to hear from people in Illinois that have spray foam in their home. We filed a calss action lawsuit. The stuff is dangerous.

    • Alejandra says:

      I use spray foam in all of my properties. But only on the outside of the units. For example, I use it by the car ports and along the brick walls running along the basement, to keep water and pests out. How can I learn more about the dangers of spray foam? Should I be concerned?

    Question to Greg:
    When does the Podcast start???

    Shouldn’t you post the newest questions at the top of the page and then post answers underneath and comments, then the next question, etc. catagorizing questions so people can click on a question to open up each questions thread?

    • Greg Morelli says:

      Yes, working on fixing the problem about the first question at the top of the page being the most recent question. Thanks for the feedback.

      The Podcast should be ready to start in June. Working out a few technical issues. Stay tuned…

  9. Karen says:

    Strange accident on the internet…..and I came across this website. I think I went out with your brother Joey once. Great stories….fun to read….. -K

  10. Gregor says:

    I’m a “strange accident,” so I appreciate you coming across us on the internet and taking the time to comment. In regard to your love life, hopefully, these days, you’re making better choices.

    ;-)

  11. Vince says:

    Will the Dems push for single payer health care? Will the Republicans beat them to the punch and push for single payer? Will the stain in my underwear come out?

  12. sergio says:

    will you guys ever be on A.M radio again? My sundays just arent the same since you went off the air, miss ya!

    • Gregor says:

      I miss doing the radio show. Looking back, it’s the thing I’m most proud of. But I need to find a radio station that believes in me, and not just a bunch of Brokered Con Men.

      Thanks.

  13. Rene says:

    What do the Bulls need to do to be awesome next year?

    Who should they draft?

  14. Brian David Lupton says:

    Was wondering, what your take on the Justin Bieber/Ann Frank controversy is? There seems to be a huge amount of vitriol aimed at this kid, most of it anon on the web of course. As you have Jewish heritage I’d appreciate your views on this one. Thanks.

    • Gregor says:

      He’s a kid. Everyone keeps forgetting Justin Bieber is a kid.

      The lesson of Anne Frank is to leave kids alone. She didn’t want to have a famous diary. Anne Frank wanted to kiss a boy and maybe find a little bit of happiness in a world filled with lunatics.

      Anne Frank didn’t know what she was getting into by being Jewish. Justin Bieber didn’t know what he was getting into by posting songs on YouTube. They’re kids. They’re not supposed to know.

      We’re supposed to know. What I mean by that is we’re supposed to know better.

      At least Justin Bieber spent time at The Anne Frank Museum while he was visiting Amsterdam. With all the lunatic comments, he probably would’ve been better served by spending the afternoon getting high.

      • Brian David Lupton says:

        Thanks Greg, my thoughts exactly. People seem to ‘forget’ that 6 million other people died, including a lot of kids like Anne, and she probably would have preferred to live a life of anonymity or any life. The worst posts I saw basically said that if she’d had to listen to his music she’d have marched her self to the concentration camps. That’s what really made it clear to me that it’s not about Anne at all. It’s about hating on ‘the Bieber’. Build ‘em up and tear ‘em down, repeat as often as needed. It was pointed out to Justin that Anne was a ‘fan’ of the popular culture of the time (movie star pictures, etc) and I think he was seeing her as the same age as his fans.

    Hi Greg,

    I’m coping and pasting the continue education event information for this Thursday. I’m not sure if you received the email.
    The Association for Conflict Resolution – Chicago Chapter
    invites you to join us for our Annual Meeting and Program
    Improv Insights Into Mediation Skills —-
    Improving by Improv–ing

    Irv Levinson, a litigator, mediator and comedy improv performer, will offer up insights on how we can use classical improv exercises to inform and enrich our mediation skills. Mediation, referred to as “the ultimate improv,” provides frequent challenges across the following cognitive and emotive boundaries:
    — Communication Skills
    — Relationship Building and Deconstruction
    — Group Problem Solving
    — Building Trust and Creating Empathy
    — Expressing and Venting Hostility in Constructive Ways
    — Creative Thinking and Brainstorming
    — Responding to the Unexpected
    — Listening Skills

    Comedy improv focuses on creating an environment where these very same challenges can be met more readily. This presentation will focus on comparing mediation and improv perspectives and objectives, and the focus of both disciplines on “getting to yes.” The program is intended to offer fresh, and sometimes unconventional, insights on how we might actually improve our mediator skills by analyzing basic components and exercises of classical improv training.
    When: Thursday, May 16, 2013
    5:30 – 6:00 pm Networking
    6:00 – 6:15 pm Election of Officers
    6:15 – 7:30 pm Program

    Where: Jenner & Block, LLP
    353 N. Clark St.
    Chicago, IL 60654

    I’m sending it just in case you did not received the information and you are interested in attending. Sounds interesting.

    What is hardest to forgive oneself or to forgive others? And why?

    • Gregor says:

      It’s harder to forgive oneself.

      Don’t know why. Especially when you consider the only way to really get a glimpse of who you are is to see how you react when things don’t go your way, and reflect on what you’d do differently.

      As far as forgiving others, I have to be honest, can’t remember the last time someone in adult life asked me to accept their apology.

      Adults have a harder time admitting they’re wrong than just about anything else.

      I work in the restaurant business. A large part of my job entails back peddling and apologizing. But if I had to be honest, I’m not back peddling and apologizing for sincerity. I’m back peddling and apologizing for survival.

      People are merciless. We don’t need classes in reading, writing and arithmetic. We need classes in tone.

      Retail might be Hell, but if you stick around at the check out counter long enough, you’ll see for yourself what lurks beneath the mask of “Have A Nice Day.”

      Truth is, I can forgive kids. But I’ve lost the ability to forgive adults. Maybe that’s why we created God, to create a make believe context where you can seek forgiveness.

      In adult life, people aren’t sorry. They’re sorry they got caught.
