Baruch Spinoza (24 Nov 1632 – 21 Feb 1677) came to be considered one of the great rationalists of c17th philosophy. His magnum opus, the posthumous Ethics, in which he opposed Descartes’s mind–body dualism, has earned him recognition as one of Western philosophy’s most important contributors.
Walking Man is an upcoming documentary from filmmakers Josh Salzberg (Step Brothers, This is 40) and Eric Norwine (Funny or Die). The film will focus on Eric’s father, Mark, who has struggled with bipolar disorder for much of his life. To raise awareness and increase knowledge about mental illness, Mark will be walking across his home state of Missouri by way of the Katy Trail, along the way talking to friends, family, experts, and advocates about the experience of mental illness. His walk will start on April 25, 2013 in Kansas City and will end on May 11, 2013 in St. Louis with a candlelight vigil to honor those who have lost their lives to mental illness.
The filmmaking team is funding the project via a Kickstarter campaign, with $22,000 of their total budget of $82,000 raised so far. This is enough to cover their initial Missouri shooting costs, but they still need to meet their full budget goal in order to get the film made!

I wonder why?
I live in a body where panic attacks are the norm.
I routinely reverse the order of words.
I cannot tell left from right.
This is How TV Should be!
I have been procrastinating by watching King of the Hill. I noticed something.
They have had at least three episodes...
