Quetzlcoatl and the coming race of giant, cloned, flying, demon-powered, man-eating cops

17-Nov-09

Here’s another important news flash from late night radio.  A country in South America has a 21.6 foot skeleton of a giant (see Gen 6:4), and they’re getting DNA from this guy.  Once a race of these giant beings has been successfully cloned, they’ll be put into police work where there will be no end […]

Product review: LED Mag-Lite bulb replacement

07-Nov-09

Several years ago, a kid in my church gave me a two D-cell Mag-Lite.  It’s a good light, tough enough for cops to use for self defense when the need arises.  But the old incandescent bulb, though considered feisty in its day, is out of date.  Dim and yellow and a battery hog, it was […]

Too beautiful for words

Youtube wants you to watch it from their site, so click on the link when the message appears.

News you can use

30-Oct-09

According to late night radio, aliens have apparently abducted a water buffalo from an exotic ranch in England.  Read all about it here. Since the economy is going into the dump, you should buy gold… from people who are selling it.  I’m curious about why I would buy something from people who are so urgent […]

Some stuff judged not half bad

24-Oct-09

Contemporary Christian music generally leaves me completely dissatisfied.  Most of it is really, really shoddy wannabe rock music.  It ends up being somewhat like jazz, which has no particular melody, no particular time signature, no particular chord structure or key signature.  It’s just musical doodling around.  With CCM, it tends to be loud and aggressive […]

Dear Second Baptist, thanks for the hospitality

20-Oct-09

While on business in Kingwood, Texas, which is just north of Houston, I went out the back of the La Quinta Inn to go running and discovered a large ball field right behind the motel.  They were having football practice for some little kids.  I went up to one of the coaches and asked permission […]

Night shift advantage

17-Oct-09

One of the side effects of working a night shift is that occasionally I get to hear a few minutes of late-late night talk radio while I’m driving home.  On Coast to Coast AM I’ve learned that a guy had a job working for NASA doctoring up pictures of the surface of the moon.  He […]

Lickety split

12-Sep-09

The 5000 meter race is 3.1 miles.  That’s about how far your average middle-aged jogger goes.  The layout of my neighborhood makes me go a bit farther, about 3.4 miles.  At my slogging-along speed, I cover 3.4 miles in 29 minutes.  At the speed these guys go, they’d cover the same ground in under 14 […]

Constitutional help for Democrats

10-Aug-09

This is for my Democrat friends who seem to have forgotten what the government is supposed to be doing.  C’mon, guys, see if you can keep up with Barney!

Wisdom

01-Aug-09

I noted recently that the mathematical formula for smartness is: SMARTNESS = INTELLIGENCE ÷ EGO2 Wisdom amps this up a bit. WISDOM = RIGHTEOUSNESS × (SMARTNESS + 1) Now, the way this works is that if you have righteousness, you can still be wise even with a theoretical I.Q. of zero.  And yes, I have […]

The economics of ego

Please take a moment to read Doug Wilson’s superb explanation of what’s driving the nutcase economic policies of Our Time.  Check it out here: The Queen of Sheba and Ivan the Terrible

Way to go, BK!

07-Jun-09

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling motivated to go out and buy a Whopper today.  It turns out that the parent company is Not Pleased with one of its franchise owners doing this.  Just my personal opinion, but I think it’s great.  A bit of free speech never hurt anybody, especially when it […]

Farewell to a good friend

29-May-09

My dentist once asked me if he was hurting me.  I told him no.  “Good,” he said. “You never have so many friends you can afford to lose one.” I lost a good friend this week, Mr. William Elgin Brown.  Elgin was a veteran of World War Two, south Asian theater, and a well driller […]

Newsweek gets its pants yanked down

19-Apr-09

Please read Brent Bozell’s masterful riposte to the usual antichrist dreck published by Newsweek at Christmas and Easter.  Read it here. I used to be a subscriber to Newsweek twenty-sum years ago, but the magazine is so reliably anti-Christian that I eventually dropped the subscription. otherbrothersteve@gmail.com
