Recommended.   The author is not particularly religious, although it is clear he loves the poetry of this bible version as a literary accomplishment on par with Shakespeare.  In addition to highlighting the unusual way this book got created and why, its a beautifully rendered survey of Jacobean England, and really highlights what a different road of middle ground and conciliation the country could have gone down rather than the one that led to the English Civil War.

As an interesting bit of quirky history, it even touches on how a book designed to reinforce the authority and ceremony of the Church of England (and largely reviled by the extreme Puritan seperatists) eventually became the preferred version of the extreme Puritan seperatists.  Once they had seperated and set up their own government in America they discovered how much more useful a bible that promoted submitting to a central authority was over their old bible that promoted resisting central authority...since they were now the central authority.

Apparently he had a Kickstarter for his upcoming book, but I missed it.
SENATOBIA, Miss. — The day after they cut off his leg, James Harris' screams echoed through the halls of Baptist Memorial Hospital. Doctors upped the dosage on his anesthetics, and Harris' wife, Emmer, tried to calm him by clutching his hand...

That's sad. I kind of forgot about Kamala. He was sort of on the B-list of heels in terms of star power, but he was a pretty regular fixture back when I was watching wrestling. I remember the whole "Kamala fears Jake the Snake's snake bag" shtick.

I never really knew too much about Jerry Lawler's promotion, interesting stuff.

Attention Stars Without Number, Traveler, and similarly minded gamers.
 
To date, astronomers have catalogued over 1,000 exoplanets — some of them rocky and parked within their host star's habitable zone. But a good portion of these planets are bigger than Earth, prompting us to ask: What would it actually be like on a habitable planet twice the size of ours?

So last night I'm at minor league baseball game. The crowd is only sorta into the game despite the home team clawing back from an 8-2 deficit. The guy working the sound booth is trying all the usual sound effects from the old school organ and Queen riffs to movie and video game clips ("Finish Him"). The team promo people are out doing line dances and hip hop dances and there's some gimmick between every inning (like tricycle races)...they're all really working it, but the crowd is pretty relaxed and mostly just enjoying the peaceful evening, only half paying attention.

Then the sound guy hits paydirt. The next sound follows a big swing and a miss by a visiting batter -- a good old Ric Flair Woo!.

From that point on the crowd was into it. Fans in one section would Woo, then fans in another section would Woo back and pretty soon it was non stop Woos..like Wooing in the round...like the overlapping sounds of crickets at night only instead of chirps its Ric Flair Woos...for 3 straight innings the Woos never stopped. At any pause the sound guy would hit the clip again and another Woo wave would sweep the stadium.

All it took to get the fans into the game was a Woo.

That shit is gold.

Hey  +Thor Hansen  Just saw this article and immediately thought of that Black Swamp thread
Early ancestors of crocodiles, not dinosaurs, may have been northern Pangaea’s top predator 230 million years ago, according to a new fossil find.

I've seen that pose in modern 'gators... not for long distances (maybe 8m or so), but small 'gators in shows will sometimes do that. So it's not that incredulity inducing to me... Cool article.

There were a couple of Pro Wrestling episodes on Starsky & Hutch back in the day.

Here's a good one featuring a fun old school promo between face and heel of a run down promotion about mid way through the 5 part episode.

The Face "The Golden Angel" is a masked wrestler in a gold body suit who comes to the ring wearing a white cape and wings.

The Heel "Hammerlock Grange" is a big hairy monster played by Richard Karron...the perpetual TV Guest Star whenever the script called for a "big hairy monster"

Ray Walston is a ton of fun to watch as the promotor / ring announcer Smilin' Tommy Reese.

Bummed...I enjoyed his acting. Seems like the driver saw 1 to many of his movies.

The pics I've seen show the car completely disintegrated.
