Had both the old boy and the young boy laughing. Delightful.
Chris Miller originally shared:
 
..in case you ever wondered:

HOW THE INTERNET BEGAN.
In ancient Israel , it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot.

And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband: "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said: "How, dear?"

And Dot replied: "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.

To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew.
It was called Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The People (HTTP)

But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secrete himself inside Abraham's drum and began to siphon off some of Abraham's business. But he was soon discovered, arrested and prosecuted - for insider trading.

And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. And indeed did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.

And Dot did say: "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."

And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel , or eBay as it came to be known. He said: "We need a name that reflects what we are."

And Dot replied: "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."

"YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside.

It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE)

And that is how it all began.
(Thanks to my friend Jimmy, who posted this on the social media that shall not be named.)

I hate the picture that leads this video, and almost didn't listen to it... but I am so glad I did.

I kept seeing this image pop up on my screen today from a number of sources so I don't know who to give credit to, but I have to share it because this is important.

As a father to a daughter who is hell bent on blazing her own path this makes me very happy. Women vs. Girls. Such an interesting conversation.

This is wonderful.
Stacey Ruberg originally shared:
 
i am the one percent
in my country right now, thousands of people are protesting...
...protesting inequality in wealth...
...protesting high unemployment, greed, corruption...
...the difference in wealth...


and while i'm grateful for our freedom to speak our minds
i can't help but witness irony in their stance

we are the world's one percent

we hoard our wealth
"investing" in that new big screen tv
"bargain shopping" for the latest laptop or tablet
"budgeting" for a new smartphone
"mortgaging" our 3+ bedroom homes
"financing" our cars

none of which are necessary
all of which are luxuries... 99% of the world can't even imagine

i know the pain of financial stress
i know what it is to live on one income
i own the covetousness of my american lifestyle

but, i don't have to send my children to labor in sweatshops
i don't have to worry about our next meal
or our electricity being shut off
i clothe my children in (mostly) clean clothes
i have access to the best libraries and education
i take vacations
i eat out

i am the world's one percent

do i hear them protesting in my park?
do i see their struggle?
do i acknowledge the inequality?

would you quietly consider your 1% budget this Christmas and buy a gift for the 99%? (we use the +Samaritan's Purse gift catalog)

I love the sound of @marcapitman's voice coming through the floor when he is on a call. It is deep, rumbly, and makes me feel so loved.

Introduction
Once upon a time I was a pastor's kid. Once upon a time I want to the USSR on a Mission of Peace (1990). Once upon I went to Albright College but then found home and calling at Gordon College. Once upon a time I was a camp counselor at Wanakee. Once upon a time I went to India - actually twice. Once upon a time I worked at The Stony Brook School.
Once upon a time I got married and had kids - and those are the adventures that I'm living right now.
