Angel made keto pizza. 7 carbs for the entire thing. Crispy chicken filet for the crust.

+Dat Moose lol. It actually isn't bad by its own qualities, but it isn't like pizza. More like pizza themed chicken parm.

I know the fact the Russians hacking the DNC is a bit of a distraction from what was done, but it does raise an interesting question. Is any of the evidence disclosed during the email dump credible in a criminal proceeding given how it was collected?

Do we really want to give foreign governments the power to disrupt our own government through espionage? I'm not saying these people should be in power or that they should get away with it, but there is an appropriate way to go about things, and I don't really think this is it as much as it pleases me to witness.

That would be unwise. They can hire hackers as easily as anyone else. I'm sure they hacked the RNC regularly. Security is tight in these situations because it has to be or things leak, but it makes a kind of Arms Race where more and more money is spent to keep secrets.

That's why Clinton's wanton disregard of information security is so dangerous.

Such a classy guy.
Donald Trump spoke about Hillary Clinton in a speech to the media at Trump National Doral golf resort on Wednesday.

Plus the Clinton campaign has just admitted that the emails were a national security issue. He really needs to call her out on that. I can't wait for the debates!

Anybody want a weatherport? This thing is massive. It takes 8 people a full day to set it up and it is a huge job. It's normal retail value is $3500. There was talk about selling it on craig's list for $1000, but it needs pressure washed and just to do that is $650 due to its size.

It has steel piping for the framing and a canvass tarp big enough to park a semi truck in. We used it for archaeological digs back in the day, but haven't needed to do phase 2 work in so long that we haven't used it in over 8 years.

I don't know what the price they would want for it is, but they are talking about throwing it out right now.

+Doug Senko Seriously, if public camping was legal, this thing could make for a huge lodge of sorts.

You could almost do some type of theater in there or something.

Oooh. I'm going to become a tent revivalist on the weekends and raise money for my "ministry." ;p

Pentecostal style.

Neonicotinoids are birth control for insects? Interestingly enough Nicotine itself reduces fertility in humans. Does it concern any smokers that most of the pesticides on the planet are modeled after the drug they pay to consume?

As far as I can tell, the prosperity gospel is not a Christian theology, although it is also not a new movement. I found a book from 1920 that claimed to present the "secret" teachings of Jesus, that upon being saved whatever a righteous man prayed for himself he would receive.

Even Kabbalism teaches this theme that the righteous in alignment with the tree of life were created to receive great bestowals and joy beyond measure. Somehow the modern mind has translated that into a message of materialism. Most of the original ascetics who practiced mysticism were probably referring to spiritual ecstasy when they spoke about that joy.

You cannot free yourself by becoming a slave to the flesh. That is the real message I see behind all of the original traditions.
He's rich, so he's good: From 17th-century Calvinists to "prosperity gospel" preacher Joel Osteen, material success has been taken as a sign of spiritual worthiness.

I never thought it went both ways. Goodness may create material wealth, but material wealth doesn't create goodness. The builder builds the house, not the other way.

They used to be one of my favorite car companies. I love their roadsters, not that I could ever afford one, but I think this thing is hideous. It looks like some kind of electric shaver.

Bajillion points of failure is a design feature. If you're wealthy enough to own one, you're wealthy enough to pay to repair it ;-)

Well, had my girlfriend's car looked at and it's the ignition control module, which doesn't make sense to me because I was getting spark out of it yesterday, but I'm not the expert here. $489 to have fixed there or I could spend $100 to have it towed to my house, $135 for the part plus a few hours installing it myself, plus the $50 for the inspection.

I really hate to bite the bullet on that, but she works 7 days a week and needs her car in a bad way. She's currently driving mine. lol.

+Bruce Wolfe Yeah, the inspection was bumper to bumper. This is the problem with the car. It isn't like we are looking to have cascading difficulties. (cross my fingers).

It's almost never the temperature in Ohio. It's the humidity. It's 89F today with 50% humidity. The day it burned out though, I did open the hood and it was an oven in there.

Except the foundational message of Buddhism. Buddha taught to raise money for the poor and to feed the community. Now they raise money to expand their own institution and collect food from the community. Also, Buddha was not a radical pacifist the way they are. Buddha ate meat. Buddha didn't spend 30 years sifting through dirt just to dig a hole in the ground. Buddha had perspective, not superstition.

If any of the modern religions were worthy of their founders original teachings, the world would be a beautiful place to live, and that's even true of Islam, at least before Muhammed moved to Medina.

Also Bushido was a buddist philosophy and it stuffed a great deal of things up.

I don't think truth is complicated. I think epiphanies are the simplest things ever, but you've got to get the right perspective to see it all. It takes time to familiarize yourself with a subject to accumulate enough knowledge to fill in all the puzzle pieces. If you're constantly looking to have a firm understanding at every stage of your life, you're going to spend most of your life being wrong.

I revel in uncertainty. I'd rather drown in its ocean than find myself on a barren island while paradise is just over that horizon.
