Who am I and What is This About?

My name is Jacob Bogle. I live near Nashville, Tennessee, I'm gay and a libertarian. I am also somewhat educated (pharmacology, architecture and theology) and committed to the truth, even if I don't like it or if it upsets your world view. I have been studying, to varying degrees, astronomy, physics, medicine, government, world military capabilities, history and philosophy for much of my life.

I am not a singular authority on anything (very few people actually are) and I recognize I do not know everything. However, I do know a lot and I have confidence in my abilities to research and find the reality to just about anything if pushed to do so.

I have Asperger's Syndrome and like many of my kind I say what I mean and mean what I say. I rarely say things to insult or otherwise injure someone and I place a high value on facts, logic and reason.

I enjoy dialectics more than debate and I firmly believe that when a disagreement arises there is a fundamental truth that can be found even if that means those involved have to accept new facts and alter their opinions.

I spend a lot of time online and I come across any number of Internet memes, rumors, hoaxes and otherwise questionable materials. I feel strongly that spreading something which is flawed only serves to further the ignorance of others and causes many well as hurts your own reputation and credibility.

So, I have created this blog to tackle some of the more outrageous things I find. I will provide sources to back up my conclusions and hope that the efforts I put in to this will ever so slightly make a dint in the never ending flow of hogwash found and disseminated online.


  1. Good luck in your efforts to end some to the lies on the internet.

  2. Found your site after researching soursop on my own. Good job.

  3. Awesome! Thank you! Snopes sometimes doesn't have the answer on many subjects, like the Graviola tree. I was ready to go out and buy me one of those trees, LOL.
