After a busy day at work, I find the silence rather refreshing.  :)

I crave silence. My neighborhood is sooo noisy! I guess God is trying to teach me how to cultivate the silence of the heart even when there's noise all around me. How did the Saints do it?! I ain't even close yet! lol.

For the record.

I have no idea how these "stars" appeared by my name. I didn't request my account be "reset" to more accurately reflect my awesomeness after registering for the Private Boards.

I was trying to be humble with my single star.

Thanks for ruining my show of virtue.

It's like that game where you tried to put cut-out plastic pieces in a grid before it popped up. Splode!  :)

You're welcome. 

If you want help with humility, remember that higher post count =/= quality of posts; I'm living proof of that.

Really?  I think that would be a bit bland.  I like my fried chicken with a side of Filloque.

Again messing with my virtue. While my quality by far exceeds the oc.net standard, I do not bring even my C game, again for humility's sake and as not to overly encourage the excess esteem I am bound to be held in by anyone with sense.

I'm tempted to anathematize all those who have Fr. Amb...erm...St. Patrick as their avatar. That IS confusing.

There are many other fine Irish saints. Nobody's picked St. Brigid?  ???

You call cryptic and hard to understand quality? ???

Heresy! 


Sci-Ficumenism is the worst.
I think that attitude is quite detrimental to science fiction fandom as a whole. At the very least we should be able to agree that there is merit, something to be learned and enjoyed, in all these franchises. Furthermore, I'd like to suggest that they may not be as incompatible as some people insist. For example, Firefly shows the rise of two distinct groups of people: People with immense psychic and martial abilities, and tribes of savage warriors IN SPACE. Star Wars shows these groups having filled niches in society as the Jedi and the Sand People respectively. I could go on, but I don't think the goals of sci-ficumenism and even sci-fyncretism are as far-fetched as some people claim.

Pokemon urban legend time!

Don't click if you don't wish to be scared. They're fake, yes. But still eerie.

The White Ditto http://inuscreepystuff.blogspot.com/2011/10/white-ditto.html I remember when this one was first posted to YouTube, actually. BlameTruth, the poster, swears up and down it's true. I rather have my doubts (everybody wants to be the next Slenderman). Still, silly fun... if you're a bit morbid like me that is lol.

For my upcoming graduate student discussion on the readings in my French Enlightenment class, one of the books I had to read was written by the professor.

This might very well happen during the discussion.

Prof: "Tell me, what did I mean when I wrote this?"
Me: "I don't know, you wrote it. What DID you mean?"

:p

How come Oskar Schindler, who fornicated regularly and was not particularly religious, did such heroic deeds? Does that prove that following Christ is not necessary for goodness?
