You know what? I’m tired and sleepy and more than a little bit allergic today, and I have lots of work to do over the weekend. I’m going to take a break. See you in a few days. :P
It seems there’s some trouble in the future. Captain Kirk and Acting Ensign Crusher aren’t getting along too well. Tee hee! Okay, okay, I’ll stop. I know Uncle Wil isn’t too titillated by continued references to his brief tenure as a Next-Gen-Boy-Genius. Just click here for an entertaining first-hand account of a Vegas Trek Convention, [...]
Via ladydusk: Everyone go wish Jason a HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY! (If you don’t know what that means, you need to read more A.A.Milne.) Update: Tomorrow is Jenn’s birthday, too! So go wish her well!
My latest spate of links reminded me that I have been remiss in linking to the blogs of fellow Christians to whom I have been meaning to link for many weeks now, which task I have been putting off for some distraction or another. The omission has been rectified, with the addition of presbytermark, barlowfarms, [...]
An Afghan-American speaks, showing us the real situation of Taliban-ruled Afghanistan: “starved, exhausted, damaged, and incapacitated.” New bombs would only stir the rubble of earlier bombs. Would they at least get the Taliban? Not likely. In today’s Afghanistan, only the Taliban eat, only they have the means to move around. They’d slip away and hide. [...]
Microsoft is removing the Twin Towers from future (and present?) versions of Flight Simulator.

Is World War III just around the corner? It’s hard to tell right now, but the fact that all born-again Christians haven’t disappeared from the face of the earth yet can mean only one of two things: (1) this isn’t it just yet, or (2) the “Left Behind” Rapture pretribulationists are wrong. (So go hoot [...]
I had a lot of fun working on the latest layout last Monday, but the horror of the next day delayed uploading for the rest of the week. Take a look now, and I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed making it. And get your hands off me, you… ah, forget [...]
No one mention Nostradamus again. PLEASE. (It already amused me to no end that initial quotes of the fake quatrain said “City of God” — a title which cannot even be loosely connected to NYC. And by late afternoon of that same day, they were quoting it as “City of York.”)
From Dani: And then, knowing that the 30 odd Americans in the room would be feeling a very long way from home, and in a declaration of our empathy and shared horror with them, the band played the opening chords to the Star Spangled Banner. And we all sung.
