What do atheists scream when they cum?

I was just listening to Bill Hicks (which I find myself doing often) and it just baffles me how much this guy did in his short period of time on earth. For years to come, young people will discover his voice and it will affect them, just like he has done to me. He was only 32 fucking years old and he died of cancer. It bugs me to no end that I will never be able to talk to him or even see him. He is by far the funniest comedian I have ever seen, not to mention one of the most insightful people to ever live. As far as stand-up comedy goes, Hicks will forvever be the barometer. When ever I am somewhere and I feel the conversations have hit a wall, I love to see peoples reactions when I bust out some Hicks jokes. It sounds corney, but try it and see what happens.

I got a chance to read the Hicks biography, Agent of Evolution, by life time friend Kevin Booth and it is fascinating. His short life was fulled with things that I couldn't even imagine. Being up on stage at such an early age and being able to make people double your age is something I've always wanted to do, but I just don't have that talent. The thing about the book that I really loved is that Kevin is not afraid to show the darker aspects of Bills life. He was human; he had some drug problems; he loved porn. I have always wanted to be a stand-up comedian; it's my dream job, but I could never see myself making people laugh on stage.

Bill had a vision, a vision that everyone on the planet should at least give a look into. Whether or not you agree with him politically, you can't deny his talent.
