Would you take candy from a baby?
Posted 17 March 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-08-CandyFromaBaby

The greatest thing about childhood is of course the lack of shame when gobbling down copious amounts of candy. We even have Halloween, a day dedicated to begging strangers for the sweet vibrantly colored starter-heroine. And even better is being a baby with candy. Because we all know that taking candy from a baby is easy and wrong. Or is it?

On this episode of Important Question? we ponder to what degree would our taffy-like ethics have to be stretched before we take candy from a baby.

What about you? Is a crying baby or an angry parent worth a lollipop? If so, what flavor of lollipop?

Would you endure castration to live 20 years longer?
Posted 3 March 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-07-Castration-1300

Hike your socks and grab your cocks, time for another IQ, the podcast that killed the radio star. Studies suggest that castrated men may live 15-20 years longer than their ballsy brethren. So today we get snippy and ask Would you endure castration to live 20 years longer? Now, these aren’t 20 bonus prime years, nor 20 enfeebled ones, but regular aging spread out over a longer time.

What about you? What about you? Is another 20 years worth your plums or eggs? Let us know on Twitter. Caleb J. Ross can be found @calebjross and Gordon Highland can be found @gordonhighland.

Would you jump off a bridge if all your friends were doing it?
Posted 17 February 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-06-Bridge-1300

Imagine yourself, alone with a small group of your closest friends, at the center of a suspension bridge looking hundreds of feet down into the ravine below. One by one your friends jump. No parachute. No bungie cord. No apparent reason. But you are there. You did walk to the center. These are your friends. So, after everyone else has jumped, would you?

Today on Important Question? Caleb J. Ross and Gordon Highland ask the stereotypical mother question, if all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?

What about you? Would you jump off a bridge if all your friends were doing it?

Would you live in a nudist colony?
Posted 3 February 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-05-NudistColony-1300

Oh, the allure of flesh, of thick folds of burbling, cellulicious, pocked pockets of wonder. Or so that’s what Gordon may think of when he imagines a nudist colony. Caleb is a bit more open minded, in that to him the preceding sentence would be said without sarcasm. Nudity is a wonderful thing. And that’s what our boys, Caleb J. Ross and Gordon Highland discuss during today’s episode of the Important Question? Podcast.

What about you? Would you live in a nudist colony? Let us know on Twitter. Caleb J. Ross can be found @calebjross and Gordon Highland can be found @gordonhighland.

Be sure to pay close attention to the word from this episode’s sponsor: Hedonism’s all-new, all-nude Kansas resort.

3 Things Most Writers Should Stop Doing
Posted 31 January 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Study (the world/the craft)

recite-1m4fwypI’ve been a professional writer for zero years, so please pay attention when I tell you this: you probably need to stop doing the following three things.

1. Stop listing your job as author or writer in social profiles unless you truly do make a living as an author or writer

I understand the desire to be perceived as a capital A Author. I also may even understand the fake-it-until-you-become it mentality. There’s a hope of perpetual perceptual motion when you start calling yourself a writer; eventually people around you see you as a writer which may even lead to legitimate writing gigs with legitimate money (not contributor copies).

But what you may be doing–without even realizing it–is an injustice to young writers who themselves want to be professionals one day. If new writers see you claiming to be a professional, they may interpret your likely paltry output (a novel here, a story there) as sufficient to earn a living wage.
