His introduction of the cliff-hanger is another technique that helped him single-handedly take rapping into the twenty-first century and beyond. Every verse used to conclude a complete thought, but Rakim was the first to create the incomplete thought that forced the listener to wait for the next verse for fulfilment. "But now I learned to earn 'cause I'm righteous, I feel great so maybe I might just..." is an example. This verse does not end in a complete thought. It ends in a cliff hanger that forces the audience to wait for the next verse to find out what he might just do, which is " for a nine to five". The movie-like suspense embedded in the rhyme heightened the already high sense of drama inherent in hip hop rhyming.

Set in Miami, Sisqó goes to the beach from his home to participate in a Spring Break party with a large number of young women who are all wearing bikinis and thongs, with the exception of one female who wears a g-string.And also show scenes with Sisqo and the members from Dru Hill driving a Bentley Azure down the highway and cameos from Ja Rule and LL Cool J. Sisqó proceeds to perform acrobatic feats atop the crowd that contradict the laws of physics, culminating in a stage performance lit with blacklights and an orchestra in the background. The whole video, being cuts between Sisqó and barely clad women, drew minor criticism for exploiting women as sex objects, and was credited for starting a new wave of "booty" videos. The director of the video, Joseph Kahn, was quoted as saying, "I listen to 'Thong Song', and I say, 'Well, this song is about asses.' So you can either accept it and do something like I did, or you can go and try and turn the 'Thong Song' into some kind of Chemical Brothers video and make it all pretentious; about some f**king communist upheaval or something. Let's just relax and make a booty video, and let's make a really good one, and make it fun." [2]

Curiously, the Sinclair family members all appear to belong to wildly different species of dinosaurs. Humans have appeared in several episodes as cavemen, and the dinosaur characters often expressed the belief that humans could never develop intelligence. Earl's favorite show on T.V. features a talking caveman named "Mr. Ugh", a direct parody of Mr. Ed, further expressing the dinosaurs' belief that humans are stupid. A recurring joke is that the dinosaurs do not know how to tell male and female humans apart and usually switch them in conversation, or as shown in one episode, "The Mating Dance", in which zookeepers unknowingly pair two obviously male humans together and cannot figure out why they will not produce offspring. There are also other recurring characters, typically Earl's Wesayso Corporation co-workers.

''Tom Goes to the Mayor'' episodes are often formulaic; Tom has an idea, and someone—usually the Mayor—manages to twist it into something terrible (or at least something non-beneficial). This is not to say that Tom's ideas are good; some of his ideas are portrayed as being better than they really are, such as his "Rats Off To Ya" T-shirts. But, whether Tom's ideas are good or bad, his mere association with them dooms them to failure. Usually this failure is assisted by the Mayor, who often adds unwelcome dimensions to Tom's ideas or hijacks them completely. Often, external forces derail his plans, and he is left "holding the bag" after disaster occurs. And, without fail, even when other characters could help Tom, none do so. Many times, Tom is left to explain his faults alongside the Mayor to the City Council members (who often appear to be the only responsible and logical members of the community, and are usually as bewildered by the Mayor's ideas as Tom is) or in other instances, to garner support for his ideas.
Even when Tom succeeds at something, such as his role as matchmaker during "Toodleday", his efforts are still portrayed as failures. This is the essence of ''Tom Goes to the Mayor'': the complete haplessness of Tom and his travails as a hyper-tragic figure against an absurdist backdrop.

Rebellious, devious, gorgeous teenager Rachel Wilcox (Lindsay Lohan) screams, swears, has sex, takes drugs, steals, and drinks; she is, in a word, uncontrollable. With her latest car crash, Rachel has broken the final rule in her mother, Lilly's (Felicity Huffman), San Francisco home. With nowhere else to take the impulsive and rambunctious girl, Lilly hauls her daughter to the one place to which she had sworn she would never return: her own mother's house in Idaho. Matriarch Georgia Randall (Jane Fonda) lives her life by a number of unbreakable rules - God comes first and hard work comes a very close second - and wants anyone who shares her home do the same. She will make anyone who takes the Lord's name in vain wash out their mouths with a bar of soap. Now saddled with raising the young woman, it will require each patient breath she takes to understand Rachel's fury.

Georgia arranges a job for Rachel as the office girl of Dr. Simon Ward (Dermot Mulroney), the local veterinarian, who also unofficially treats people. His two nephews, Sam (Dylan McLaughlin) and Ethan (Zachary Gordon), are often at Georgia's house. Simon does not show interest in Rachel or other women, so she thinks he is gay. However, Simon's sister, Paula (Laurie Metcalf), reveals that he is still mourning the death of his wife and son who were killed in a car crash three years earlier. He refuses to have sex with Rachel even when she tries to seduce him, but feels some passion for Lilly, whom he has dated in the past.

Rachel performs oral sex on Harlan Wilson (Garrett Hedlund), who, not yet being married, was still a virgin because of his LDS (Mormon) religion. Backed up by a reluctant Rachel, he confesses to his LDS girlfriend, who is shocked. A team of LDS girls starts spying on Harlan to make sure he does not "have sex" again. After a short chase using Harlan's truck, Rachel explains to them that what happened was over, and that they can go back to having their summer fun. They agree to do so, only if Rachel goes home. Rachel then threatens them by saying if they have anything to do with her and Harlan again, as in: talk to Harlan, yell at Harlan, call her a name, throw stuff at her, or do anything else that has to do with her, then she will find all of their boyfriends and "fuck them stupid."

While trying to make a point to Simon about survival, Rachel bluntly says that her stepfather Arnold (Cary Elwes) sexually molested and raped her from the time she was 12 until she turned 14. Seeing the effect of her revelation, Rachel tries to convince him she lied. However, Simon has already told Georgia about the abuse, and Georgia in turn tells Lilly, who at first thinks Rachel is lying. Lilly comes to believe her daughter, however, and begins to drink heavily and asks Arnold for a divorce. When Arnold arrives, Georgia tells him to leave and will not allow him in the house. Finally, she attempts to force him off the property by hitting him with a baseball bat; when he still refuses to leave, she forces him, by using the bat to threaten his sports car in order to put a bar of soap in his mouth, after he takes God's name in vain. Rachel sees that Lilly cannot accept the truth, and lies to her, saying she was not molested by Arnold.

At the motel where Arnold is staying, Rachel tells him that she has a video tape of him having sex with her when she was 14. Arnold seems worried, which further convinces the viewers of his guilt. Rachel demands US$10 million (half his presumed net worth) if he does not keep Lilly happy. She admits to him that she lied to Lilly because she does not want her to be upset anymore. On the way back to San Francisco, Arnold tells Lilly that he is giving Rachel his new red Ferrari, and Lilly realizes that he is guilty. As Lilly jumps out of the car and starts walking back to town, Arnold angrily admits to having raped and molested Rachel; he claims to have been seduced, that Lilly's heavy drinking drove him to it, and finally saying that Rachel enjoyed it. After fending off an attack from an enraged Lilly, Arnold drives off, daring her to take him to court.

In the end, Georgia, along with Simon, Rachel, and Harlan, catch up with Lilly in Harlan's pick-up truck, and a tearful Rachel makes up for her behavior. Harlan also mentions to Georgia that he is in love with Rachel and plans to marry her when he returns from his two-year mission.

1. Main People
1. 1. Tanut
Tanut is "cold and heartless to this day" because of witnessing his father's murder at a young age. He has a girlfriend named Nettie who stays by his side. She tries to get him to stop dealing drugs but he says no because he is a "soulja". He understands why Nettie is worried about him, because he is in a cold war and there is nothing nice in the Magnolia Projects. He never trusts the law and he doesn't care what they say or try to be. He wants to do right in life but is often forced to choose to ride or quit the game. His girl Nettie is later kidnapped by a crooked cop named Reese and threatens to rape and kill her if the Cash Money Millionaires don't give him the dope. Also, played by Juvenile, a former Cash Money Millionaire.

1. 2. Biatrice
Biatrice is the leader of the Cash Money Millionaires gang and basically runs the Magnolia Projects. He is the administrator of the gang's narcotics distribution ring: he makes sure that all his people are "straight" and all the drugs are of sufficient quality and properly supplied. His girl is never seen in the movie but is mentioned. He tells his boys that his girl is saying that he is working too hard but he doesn't care because he is "hustling" to get rich, so he can feed her steaks instead of "peanuts and shit." He has a feud with Curlyhead who tries to take over the Magnolia because he is greedy (The gang used to bribe him with drugs and money but he wanted a bigger cut of both). Played by Birdman. he also was in control on handling the drug operations "licks" which they called it.

1. 3. Iceberg Shorty
Early in the movie, he and his boys beat somebone who worked for Curlyhead which makes the cops come with sirens flashing. When that happens, Iceberg runs away and into a store and, ironically, hides in a freezer. Because of the "G Code" the store clerk didn't tell the cop where Iceberg Shorty was hiding. Played by Lil' Wayne

1. 4. Chopper
Chopper is another member of Tanut's set. He was involved in the jumping of one of Curlyhead's workers and was about to kill him but the cops came. Instead of running with Iceberg Shorty or Tanut, he ran with Teke and ended jumping in the back of a Mustang occupied by three women. Later in the movie, he is informed by one of his friends that Curlyhead was trying to shut down their operation. Later in the movie, Chopper finishes Gar off by shooting him in the head (after the other gang members shoot him several times in the chest). Played by B.G., former Cash Money Hot Boys.

1. 5. Teke
Teke is another Cash Money Millionaire. Then he jumped one of Curlyhead's workers and ran with Chopper in the street while Fast Eddie was chasing them. While he and Chopper are in the Magnolia Projects, the cops come to ask them questions about where Biatrice is and where the dope is coming in. Teke tells the cop that he is not a snitch and he can arrest him if he wants to. In the movie, Teke and Beatrice confront the man who passes out the checks in the Magnolia Project. Biatrice tells the man that the block is hot and he wanted to know if he seen the cops around. He then tells the man to pass the checks out on time and the man gets smart. Teke loses his cool and shoots the man to death on the spot. He flees from the scene with Biatrice, stopping briefly to hand the bag of welfare checks to a random little boy, instructing him to pass them out to the project's residents. Later on in the movie Teke and Iceberg Shorty rob a jewelry store because they wanted all the "Bling Bling". Played by Turk former Cash Money Hot Boys.

2. Themes of the Film
2. 1. The G Code
"The game is cold, but it's fair, nigga." This is the mantra by which Tanut and all of the Cash Money Millionaires live their lives. The way The Game functions is governed by the G code. The G code is the informal, unwritten social mores of the streets - you live by it, and you die by it. The essence of The Game is that you control as much of the projects as you can and deal drugs to its inhabitants—and you always handle your own business amongst yourselves, avoiding contact and cooperation with the police. When a gang has a great deal of influence over a certain area (and its drug trade), it is said that they've "got that work". Business typically picks up when the welfare checks are passed out; the recipients cash them and spend the money on drugs. It's important to never "catch a drought" by letting your drug supplies dwindle, hence they "re-up" at least once a month. As seen in the movie, Iceberg Shorty is the superior hustler.

2. 2. Dealing
Not all inhabitants of the Magnolia projects can afford all the drugs they want. So they might "come at you with that left hand shit", that is, try to shortchange you during a drug deal. If they have a good rapport with you, or you are a kindhearted dealer like Iceberg Shorty, you might decide to give them some credit or cut them a deal. However, Tanut is less generous and claims he is quick to "bus' yo' head" should his buyers attempt this.
He said ALOT of shit last night. And most of it WASN'T how he supported a fascist.

The movie opens with the main character, Julia Jones (Alyson Hannigan), an obese woman, having a dream about marrying Napoleon Dynamite (Josh Meyers). It turns into a nightmare when Napoleon turns around and dumps her. Julia wakes up screaming and goes to her diary to write an entry. She thinks she will never find her true love. Julia goes outside and dances to impress men on the streets. It doesn't, as her obesity gets the best of her, with fluid sloshing around inside her rear and breasts; one man even shoots himself in the head with a nail gun when he sees her dancing.

Later on, Julia goes to work at her dad's Greek diner. Her dad, Frank (Eddie Griffin), suggests she gets married to someone of the same heritage as her. Julia is half Greek (her dad, who is actually portrayed as an African-American), half Indian (her mom) and half Japanese (her Japanese sister). He suggests Nicky (Judah Friedlander), an ugly, greasy man. She then meets Grant Funkyerdoter (Fockyerdoter in the unrated version) (Adam Campbell), with whom she forms an instant attraction. When Frank yells at Julia to get an order, she turns to respond and hits Grant over the head with the coffee pot she's holding, knocking him to the floor. She turns around only to find his table is suddenly empty and figures he ran away.

Julia realizes she will never find her true love at this rate, and she goes to see a love therapist, Hitch (Tony Cox). At first, Hitch rejects her, but Julia says she is desperate and walks off. Hitch, feeling guilty, invites her in. Julia explains about the man at the diner and thinks it will be impossible for him to fall in love with her. Hitch takes her to a garage where she gets "pimped out" into a beautiful woman. She earns a spot on a reality TV dating show called "The Extreme Bachelor", the bachelor turning out to be Grant, the man she met in the diner. Grant greets all the women and is asked to eliminate the losers, which he does by shooting them. Julia is the last woman standing and is rewarded with dinner for two at a restaurant called "A Restaurant". After their meal, Julia and Grant head back to her apartment, where they have sex. Julia takes Grant to meet her parents. There is immediate tension between Frank and Grant. Grant goes to the bathroom to see Jinxers, the family cat, defecating loudly and continuously on the toilet. Things get a lot worse when Grant attempts to open a bottle of champagne. The cork hits a vase that contains Frank's mother's remains, and the problems only get worse when Jinxers begins humping the skeleton.

Later, Grant takes Julia to Tiffany & Co., where they turn on the lights to reveal the salespeople ready to let her pick whatever she wants. Grant then confesses he loves her and proposes to her. Julia happily says yes. Then, Frodo (Tom Lenk), Gandalf (Tom Fitzpatrick), and the others try to pawn off a ring, with Gandalf pleading that the ring could "destroy all evil". Ignoring him, Frodo accepts the offer of $50. The hobbits then turn and repeatedly kick Gandalf in his "precious" (balls) and run off to "get some wine coolers... and hookers!" Now it's Grant's turn to take Julia and her family to meet his parents. This meeting doesn't go well either, as Roz (Jennifer Coolidge), Grant's mother, informs everyone that Grant lost his virginity to their gay housekeeper Eduardo (Mauricio Sanchez). Frank secretly brings Nicky along, telling Julia she has no choice but to marry him. Julia runs off, devastated. Later, Frank has a one-on-one basketball game with Grant's father, Bernie (Fred Willard). Things get bad when Frank gets a huge taste of Bernie's chest hair.

The next day, Julia and Grant go to a wedding planner named Jell-O (Valery Ortiz), who has a massive rear end. Jell-O suggests they go to Taco Butt, but they want something a little fancier. At first she is offended but when Grant tells her that he and Julia have already taken care of the other things listed for the wedding, Jell-O tells them that she wanted them to see what she had booked for the entertainment which was her dancing. She does some dance moves and backs up towards them with her massive rear end crushing them. Julia finally gets the chance meet Andy (Sophie Monk), Grant's best man, at the swimming pool. Of course, Julia assumes Andy is a man, but she is really a woman and is a lot more attractive than Julia. Julia is even more horrified when she finds out that the two were engaged three weeks ago. Andy helps Julia shop for her wedding dress. At the dress store, Julia hits her head on a power box and finds that she can read people's thoughts. Julia finds from reading Andy's mind that she still has feelings for Grant and plans to split the two of them up. Julia and Andy fight each other, Kill Bill-style. Julia grows depressed, fearing that she'll always be a lonely fat girl. She goes back to Hitch and tells him about Andy. Hitch reckons she doesn't stand a chance against Andy — but if she does, then everything will be fine in the end. Julia grows confident again and figures that she just has to make it through the wedding rehearsal at her dad's diner; then, only one day until their wedding. There, Andy shows up and accuses Grant of using Julia to get over her, but Grant ignores her.

The big day has arrived, but unfortunately, Julia wakes up with a big pimple on her face. She eventually pops it, blowing her to the back of the room and knocking down a wall, but she is late for her wedding. Meanwhile, Andy finally tells Grant how she feels about him, and that Julia doesn't deserve him. She wants to marry him but Grant steps up and says he wants Julia. Andy ignores him and kisses him. Grant pushes Andy off and sees Julia, who has caught them in the act and runs away.

Days later, Julia goes back to her apartment and is surrounded by balloons, gifts, and letters from Grant. She cannot forgive Grant, however, and agrees to marry Nicky. Once at the altar with Nicky, Julia is regretting it and has flashbacks about her and Grant. Frank, realizing that Julia is unhappy, stops the wedding and tells her she doesn't want Nicky. Grant is the one for her (he saw it in her flashback). Frank shows Julia a magazine with a picture of Grant and a message. It says to meet him on the rooftop of her apartment building. After an epic journey - throwing Andy down a stairway, bashing someone on the head with a baseball bat to get their bike - she gets there, only to find she just missed Grant. She leans her hands on the railings, causing it to snap and falls right into Grant's arms. It is very emotional but they get back together and get married, with Hitch officiating. Andy and Nicky meet at the wedding, and fall in love. Meanwhile, Grant and Julia leave in a horse and carriage. Julia also gets a present from her mother-in-law: a vaginal thermometer which apparently has been in their family for generations and is regarded as good luck when it's not washed.

The movie ends with Grant and Julia attending their honeymoon on Kong Island. They see a woman (Carmen Electra) tied up to two pieces of wood. King Kong comes on and rips off her dress, leaving her clad in a leopard print bikini. Kong then gropes her, she says "I like hairy guys" and Kong roars and flattens her.

He died in December 1970 at the young age of 47, never realizing his dream of creating a product better than WD-40 for worldwide distribution. He did create a product called Free N' Kleen which actually was better than WD-40 or CRC, but a few years after his death the company went out of business, and the formula was lost.

The book contains several chapters with self-laudatory titles, such as "Why I Am So Wise", "Why I Am So Clever", "Why I Write Such Good Books" and "Why I Am a Destiny". In many ways, Ecce Homo is a quintessential reflection of Nietzsche's humility as a philosopher, writer and thinker.

In 1994 the boys dropped out of college and moved into a cramped two-bedroom apartment on Suffolk St. in the Lower East Side.[citation needed] They slept in bunk beds, showered in the kitchen, and lived off pizza slices and brown-bagged beer as they hammered out a D.C. post-hardcore spin on early Rolling Stones-meets-Velvet Underground 60s rock.[citation needed] Martin's piercing Farfisa organ, Maroon's crashing reverb-soaked guitar and a convincing rhythm section channeled three decades of underground rock. Up front, Lupton was charismatic and worldly, evoking Nick Cave with his dark lyrics and rakish glamour.[attribution needed] The group were embraced by critics as a breath of fresh air in a commercialized alternative rock scene.[citation needed]


Jonathan Fire*Eater was called "most hyped young group that nobody has ever heard of,"[1] but many of the few people that did hear them started a band,[citation needed] including later New York acts like The Strokes, who have identified them as a major influence.

Davidson has been known to make offensive jokes about ethnic minorities, homosexuals and disabled people in his stand-up act, which has made him a subject of negative media coverage and frequent criticism. The Shropshire Star reported that much of it has focused upon his divorce payments, income tax bills, and court orders for cancelled shows. He once refused to go on stage in Plymouth because some disabled ticket holders were in the front row; he was quoted as saying, "I've got nothing against disabled people but part of my act is taking the piss out of the front row. Just imagine if I had have ripped it out of them? The papers would have had a field day. Instead I asked them to move, but they wouldn't budge an inch." The disabled people in question responded that they had bought front row tickets and were aware of the nature of his act and, on that basis, saw no reason why they should move. Some critics later said that a feature of a great comedian is to be able to tailor his act to suit any audience. Martin Fletcher describes Davidson as "extraordinarily foul-mouthed, racist, and sexist" and a "throwback"; whilst quoting Garry Bushell describing Davidson as a "family entertainer". In a Channel 4 poll of the 100 Worst Britons, Davidson came in at #20.

Dragon Shield: The golden shield worn by the Green Ranger is often almost impervious to attack, especially when Tommy plays the Dragon Dagger's flute mechanism. Along with the chest shield, the Green Ranger also wears golden arm bands. The set of armor, or the individual shield, can also be transferred to other Rangers. As in the case in which Zack, was given the Dragon Shield to protect him in the episode "Oyster Stew." When Tommy's Green Ranger powers are slowly being drained by Rita's Green Candle, he transfers his powers over to Jason, giving him possession of both the Dragon Shield and the Dragon Dagger. After regaining his Green Ranger powers, Tommy once again possesses the shield. The Dragon Shield is also the most recognizable way to tell the difference between the Japanese and American footage of the series, as in the original Japanese footage the shield was made of hard foam or rubber, while in the American-made footage it was made of shiny polyester.

Like his co-star Davy Jones, Dolenz was a huge Beatle fan. When he was 22, he got to meet everybody in the band, and became good friends with George Harrison. Once when not touring, he smoked pot with Paul McCartney. In 1995 Dolenz did a Pizza Hut commercial with ex-Beatle Ringo Starr and Dolenz's own bandmates.

Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, writers of many of The Monkees' songs, observed quickly that when brought in to the studio together, the four actors would try to crack each other up. Because of this, they would often bring in each singer individually. The antics escalated once, until Micky poured a Pepsi on Don Kirshner's head; at the time, Dolenz did not know Kirshner on sight.

In 1980, Dolenz produced and directed the sitcom Metal Mickey,[2] featuring a small metallic robot with the catch-phrase "boogie boogie." Because the similarity of the character's name to his own caused confusion on set, it was at this time that Micky Dolenz officially changed his name to Michael Dolenz.[citation needed]

In a September 2006 radio interview, Dolenz reported that he is the current voice of Snuggle the Fabric Softener Bear.[3]

An opportunistic lookalike from the US cashed in on his similarity to Nesmith by appearing on talk shows and doing interviews in Australia during the 1980s. The scam was successful, the lookalike being far enough from America to avoid detection as a fraud (which is less likely in the US, where the real Nesmith has made many media and show-business acquaintances). An entertaining interviewee, the impersonator's charade was not discovered until after he had vanished from the public eye. The imposter, Barry Faulkner, who had pulled various fraudulent scams for forty years, was finally apprehended and sent to jail in 2009.[8][9]

The project, released posthumously after Davis died during the recording process, leaving the project unfinished, generally garnered reviews.

The band is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Its name originates from the nickel in change that band member Mike Kroeger gave customers at his job at Starbucks; he would frequently say, "Here's your nickel back."[7]

Unsure what to do, the Tanners take ALF into their home and hide him from the Alien Task Force (a part of the U.S. military) and their nosy neighbors Trevor and Raquel Ochmonek (John LaMotta and Liz Sheridan), until he can repair his spacecraft. He generally hides in the kitchen. It is eventually revealed that ALF's home planet, Melmac, exploded because of a catastrophe involving nuclear war. In episode three of season one ALF tries to convince the president of the USA to stop the nuclear program as ALF is afraid that Earth might suffer a doom similar to Melmac's. ALF was off the planet because he was part of the Melmac Orbit Guard. ALF (a.k.a. Gordon Shumway) is homeless, but he isn't the last survivor of his species. He becomes a permanent member of the family, although his culture shock, survivor guilt, general boredom, despair, and loneliness frequently cause difficulty for the Tanners.

While most of the science fiction of ALF was played for comedic value, there were a few references to actual topics in space exploration, for example ALF's using a radio signal as a beacon in the pilot episode. In the episode "Weird Science", ALF told Brian, who was building a model of the solar system for his science project, that there were two planets beyond Pluto called "Dave" and "Alvin", which gets Brian in trouble at school. However, after Alf makes a call to an astronomical organization and states that "Dave" is known by the organization, Willie comes to believe that "Dave" could have been the planetoid Chiron, or "Object Kowal", after its discoverer. Alf then shows Willie exactly where "Dave" is on an intergalactic Rand-McNally map of the universe. This occurred in the first season episode Weird Science and was one of the first instances of other worlds beyond Earth and Melmac being given any focus verbally or physically.

Cameron was once an atheist,[29] but when Kirk was 17, during the height of his career on Growing Pains, he developed a belief in God, and became a born-again Christian.[14][30][31] After converting to Christianity, he began to insist that story lines be stripped of anything he thought too adult or racy in Growing Pains.[32][33] A decade later, Cameron agreed to appear in The Growing Pains Movie, where the entire main cast reunited with one another. Cameron said, "It’s a lot less crazy of a time than when we were teenagers. It’s an opportunity to begin new friendships as adults, and I’m really looking forward to that."[34]

Cameron currently partners with fellow evangelist Ray Comfort, training Christians in evangelism. Together, they founded the ministry of The Way of the Master,[35] which is best known for the television show of the same name that Cameron co-hosts, and which won the National Religious Broadcasters’ Best Program Award for two consecutive years.[36] It also formerly featured a radio show known as The Way of the Master Radio with talk show host Todd Friel.[37] The radio show was later canceled, and replaced with Wretched Radio, hosted by Friel. Cameron, along with his wife, founded The Firefly Foundation, which runs Camp Firefly, a summer camp that gives terminally ill children and their families a free week's vacation.[38][39]

Cameron and Comfort participated in a televised debate with atheists Brian Sapient and Kelly O'Conner of the Rational Response Squad, at Calvary Baptist Church, in Manhattan, on May 5, 2007. It was moderated by ABC's Martin Bashir and parts of it were aired on Nightline. At issue was the existence of God, which Comfort stated he could prove scientifically, without relying on faith or the Bible.[40] The audience was composed of both theists and atheists. Points of discussion included atheism and evolutionary theory.[41] While Sapient contended during his arguments that Comfort violated the rules by talking about the Ten Commandments, Cameron later stated on the Way of the Master radio show that the rules of the debate did not say that the Bible could never be referenced, but rather that Comfort simply had to come up with one argument that didn't reference the Bible or faith.[42][dead link]

In November 2009 Cameron and others distributed free copies of an altered version of Darwin's On the Origin of Species on college campus in the United States.[43][44] The book consisted of Darwin's text with chapters of the book removed, and with an added introduction by Ray Comfort reiterating common creationist assertions about Darwin and evolution. The book has been criticized by scientists and Darwin biographers for omitting key chapters of the book, and for its introduction containing misinformation about Darwin, employing logical fallacies and "a hopeless mess of long-ago-refuted creationist arguments, teeming with misinformation about the science of evolution".[45][46] Comfort later said that the four chapters were chosen at random to be omitted in order to make the book small enough to be affordable as a giveaway, with the absent chapters available for download, but that the missing chapters were included in the second edition, which had a smaller text size that made printing the entire book as a giveaway affordable. The second edition still lacks Darwin's preface and glossary of terms.[47] The National Center for Science Education arranged a campaign at colleges across the U.S. to distribute an analysis of the Comfort introduction and a banana bookmark,[48] in reference to Comfort's argument that the structure of the banana is evidence for Intelligent Design, or God.[49]

This is on YouTube and it's pretty convincing.
