No amount of evidence to the contrary seems to shake man's grand opinion of himself. - Reinhold Niebuhr

There is nothing Biblical about this claim, but of course, the spirit of this world wants you to ridicule the Bible nevertheless. Like those owners of a prophesying girl in Acts 16, these people would use anything for their greedy purpose, including the Bible. This type of money-making ventures have become ubiquitous on YouTube, and the environment is becoming muddier for the truth of the Gospel to shine. But let those who shine, keep shining!

I don't have much respect for Dewey as a man, but his quote(via Eric Fromm's Fear of Freedom) on democracy seems timely.

"The serious threat to our democracy is not the existence of foreign totalitarian states. It is the existence within our own personal attitudes and within our own institutions of conditions which have given a victory to external authority, discipline, uniformity and dependence upon The Leader in foreign countries. The battlefield is also accordingly here-within ourselves and our institutions."

I had to read the article twice to make sure I wasn't reading an Onion article. Even after that I'm still wondering how ants could be so threatening... ??

UPDATED: From Wikipedia:
"They are also attracted to electricity; electrically stimulated workers release venom alkaloids, alarm pheromones, and recruitment pheromones, which in return attracts more workers to the site.[390] As a result, red imported fire ants can destroy electrical equipment.[391] This is known as magnetism, where scientists have identified internal magnetic materials which may play a role in orientation behaviours.[392][393] They are known to chew through electrical insulation which causes damage to electric motors, irrigation lines, pumps, signal boxes, transformers, telephone exchanges, and other equipment."

My homemade oven-baked shrimp dish for lunch with kids. I like it, because it still tastes like shrimp. It even tastes healthy. x-) I don't think anything can beat deep-fried ________________.

Even Isaac Asimov knew to have positronic AIs abide by fundamental rules to protect humans. He was an atheist. People with no belief in imago dei will ultimately bring more harm than good with technologies that can potentially go beyond their own intelligence.

The left button on my Logitech Trackman Marble has been replaced this morning. The left (main) button started to fail--symptoms include double clicking when I click only once, and sometimes failing to register, etc. Logitech ships them out with cheaper Omron D2FC-F-7N which faithfully fails after a couple years of use--this is my third Trackman by the way. The better alternative replacement is D2F-01F (I just bought 10 of these from Mouser.) The difference is where it was manufactured. You can guess what C stands for in D2FC. The one that lasts much longer has words Omron Japan on the top. It's easy to tell why if you open 'em up and compare. The button click feels so much better too. Hope with this replacement it will last a bit longer than my previous ones. If you have a Logitech mouse or trackball button that is failing, you may want to check if it has the same switch. It's simple to swap 'em out

What are some ways to help our younger beginners to keep their interest level in kendo sustained long-term? I'd appreciate any input from those living in sparsely populated areas.
