What do they know?

Okay, this is going to be a quickie. If Al-Queda keeps saying that America in Iraq is 'broken' and we've been defeated and all that shit, why are they still hiding?

God Loves, God Kills

Ride the Lightning[Dave/Scott]
Recommended Reading:Lightning kills 5 children praying at cross.” The New Zealand Herald. 25 Apr. 2006.
Five children between 9 and 16 years old died and several others suffered burns when lightning struck a white-painted metal cross set on a hill in the town of Santa Maria del Rio early on Sunday, according to two newspaper reports.
I wonder if there was a booming voice warning them before the bolt to get the hell off His symbol, following his warning with a sigh after he saw that the kids were ignoring him. No, I don’t think children dying is funny, I just see it as ironic due to the circumstances. Perhaps Christians shouldn’t ignore the fact that God can be wrathful from time to time. This is also why parents don't like you kids playing in the rain.

Are You Not Entertained?

Recommended Reading: Ewalt, David M. “In Praise of Blood Sport.” 18 Apr. 2006.

I have to admit that after spending years of eating at Woodruff with Bruce, I can’t look at football the way I used to. He pointed out that though the sport is purportedly of the contact variety, on about 75% of the time plays end within seconds of contact (Bruce likes hockey). I am aware that an average man hit by a NFL linebacker (aka moving wall) would likely knock the man out cold, but I’d rather watch something proposed in the article linked above. I’ve pasted a snippet below if you don’t feel like taking two minutes to read it. Bring back lions vs. Christians!
It's hypocritical to suggest that we're somehow above violent sports. Consider what happens on the average football field or hockey rink; men tackle and hit one another, using physical strength to knock the other down and move ahead. If someone hip-checked you in a grocery store, or on a street corner, you'd have them arrested. But in a stadium, we accept it and embrace it.

Some Food for Thought (Religion)

I finished reading Mark Millar’s Chosen graphic novel about a week or two ago and it brought up some interesting bits. One of the ones that really got me thinking was something brought up by a Catholic priest, who through hardships over the years has become rather agnostic. Here’s what he says:
“Well, suppose I’d been there two thousand years ago when the original Jesus Christ was doing his thing? Would I have bought all that hocus-pocus about God-made-man, or just stood there and watched while they hammered in the nails.”

Some you just can't help.

We were leaving LCC 3302 Science Technology and Ideology yesterday talking about how the final is going to rape all of us and we decided to party afterward. We agreed that Rocky Mountain was close, cheap, good, and cheap so it was perfect for beer drinking after the test. In classes I don't talk to everyone because lets face it, some kids are annoying little shits. I mainly talk in this class to the sorostitutes and Dennis the guy who sits next to me. The sorostitutes were all up for RM and Dennis just wants to drink so it sounded like a great plan. Sorostitute A suggested that we invite everyone in the class. Here's the ensuing conversation:

Jack: No way, those kids are fucking annoying
Sorostitute: Could you imagine what they would do if they got drunk?
Jack: Good point, it could be very entertaining.
**happens upon the two most annoying kids in the class**
Jack: You guys 21 and want to get blitzed at RM after our final?
Phillip **now not as annoying** : I'm not old enough, but I'll try to get a fake.
Matt **I'll be a virgin for the rest of my life**: No! Phillip we don't need to drink! I would much rather kill people in World of Warcraft!

I shit you not people, that is exactly what Matt said. Word for word. I mean, what the fuck. That kid will never get laid. On a side note, I realized sorostitute has the word tit in it. Coincidence? I think not.

College Makeover

Living Room[Dave/Scott]
When Jack and I first moved in this 9th floor apartment we had the intention to do some decoration so that it didn’t look just look like another college apartment with bare walls. The deer’s head was the first step, but we stopped there largely because we didn’t spend much time in the living room due to circumstances with Matt (crazy-druggie-former-roommate). Earlier this semester Jack and Ryan (not Jack Ryan from Tom Clancy novels) went to Tower Records and bought all the cheap records with the weirdest covers that they could find. You should’ve seen the look on the cashier’s face when she was typing in their prices. They finally got around to putting them up on the wall, and I have to say that the result wasn’t half-bad, in its own ghetto-college way. Click on the picture to get a closer look.

Big Lots

I went to Big Lots yesterday to help move some furniture to a friends house. Be forewarned that if you buy a pickup truck you volunteer yourself for the moving of any and all furniture that your family and friends own. That being said I went to meet this friend at Big Lots to move a sleigh bed to their house. Now, Big Lots is far from Pottery Barn and is not for the more affluent shoppers. Hell, IKEA looks like the Ritz Carlton when compared to Big Lots, but the stuff there looks okay. I guess it's a good place for college kids to go if they need to buy a coffee table that they assume will in the course of the next week will be smashed into a thousand pieces.

The real reason I liked going to Big Lots though is that I realized I could buy everything in the store with the contents of my wallet. I'm not saying I could buy anything in the store, or one of everything in the store, but literally the entire stock of the store, for like $100. Kind of comical.
