Well, I've known a couple "right-wing" atheists in my time.  But they were always considered "suspicious" and "gun nuts".  I do try to deal with differences so long as the discussion is among atheists.  In fact, that is mostly why I'm here.  I could discuss nearly any subject here elsewhere and not reveal that I'm an atheist.  But I have a deep desire to understand how my fellow atheists view certain topics.

You have mostly lived inside the Beltway.  I consider that flyover country.

I fondle my nose hairs at your pasty unFrench ignorance, you son of a stoat!  I fart in your jeneral direction!

I only spent 3 years inside the beltway while living in a U of MD dorm.  After that, I couldn't afford it, so I went to the hinterlands barely outside...  Then I got a real job and moved a few miles further,  you unfatted goose liver...

Not familiar with it.  Why?

See, you are a Millennial before there were Millennials.  You stayed in your mother's basement playing video games all day, before it became a meme.

Anyone who's missed Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail has missed one of the best English comedy movies ever made!

Agreed. It also has some great digs against religion. No spoilers here.

And you get to practice your Latin grammar ;-)

I also recommend ... A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum.  The Romans should be kicked too.

Absolutely!

One of the funniest movies ever made.

It makes #3 on Rotten Tomatoes list of the 140 best comedies of all time.

And #1 on IMD.

It is very hard to best a classic.  The format was taken from Shakespeare, who took it from old Latin comedy, who took it from Greek new comedy, to took it from Greek old comedy.  Pedigree!  So classic, that ancients could have followed the plot.

The Latin grammar bit was Life of Brian, unless there was one in Holy Grail too.

I was joking.  I know parts by rote.  I can quote some of Monty Python,and Firesign Theater easily.  Thou shalt not count to four for the first, and "who can you be in 2 places at once when you're not anywhere at all". 

So come in out of the cornstarch and warm your muckluks by the (fake) fire.
