Anyone who rides the subway in New York will appreciate this video.

Orange is the New Black star Lea DeLaria was not in the mood to hear about religion from a loud man on her commute Tuesday morning.

Wearing a "Bad Jew" t-shirt, the actress who plays "Big Boo" on the show stood up and got into a shouting match with the preacher about Jesus.

In part 2 of the video (embedded below), he also starts yelling about Sodom and Gomorrah, which DeLaria, who is openly gay, does not find very amusing.

Someone give this woman a medal.

Encryption of the Day: The Internet Helps Solve a Mystery Code From a Dying Woman
- -

A cancer-ridden women who died decades ago left a series of index cards with indeciphierable ramblings on the backs of them to her grandchildren before her passing. Now fully grown, those grandchildren have turned to the internet in hopes that they can get help in solving what they beiieve is some form of code.

My grandmother passed away in 1996 of a fast-spreading cancer. She was non-communicative her last two weeks, but in that time, she left at least 20 index cards with scribbled letters on them. My cousins and I were between 8-10 years old at the time, and believed she was leaving us a code. We puzzled over them for a few months trying substitution ciphers, and didn't get anywhere.

After making the post on Metafilter, parts of the encryption seemed to have been already solved. It appeared to users that the woman was partly writing prayers through her code.

Was she a religious woman? The last As, as well as the AAA combo, make me think of "Amen, amen, amen." So extrapolating -- TYAGF = "Thank you Almighty God for..."

It would make sense to end with "Thank you, Almighty God, for everything, Amen - Thank you, Almighty God, for everything, Amen, Amen, Amen."

Science v. The Bible of the Day

The great debate rages on -- sort of.

In an amusing twist, this video takes biblical creation and scientific theories on the origin of the universe, and totally swaps them around.

The result? It's a chocolate-and-peanut butter scenario that is absolutely delicious.
