Yay imperialism!  God loves conquest and taking over "those people".

There's a reason we don't sing that verse anymore.  It's because it espouses truly despicable ideals.

Ehh the bible is just parables mostly from other cultures written down and put into one book.  
I'll start paying more attention when biblical people can get beyond circular logic.

I'm proud of my friends who made this, and honoured to be part of it.

Well that's just great.
 
Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) said in 2010 that he opposed action on climate change because “the Earth will end only when God declares it to be over.” He is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy. Think this is an anomaly?  Have you seen some of the things said by the top three majority members of the House Science Committee?  But this study by the University of Colorado is especially disturbing.  It found that belief in the imminence of  biblical end-times correlates very strongly with and was a major motivating factor behind resistance to curbing climate change.

This does not mean that all Republicans are like this! Nor are all "climate skeptics" motivated by a rejection of science. But when this is the company you keep, isn't it worth considering a possibility?  Like rebelling against this death spiral and militantly seeking the resurrection of the far different conservatism? That of Barry Goldwater and William F. Buckley?

 It already happened once, long ago.  Miracles DO happen!

So freaking cool!
 
Found this pearl by searching quicksort algorithm on Internet.
It would be a wonderful world if all algorithms were demonstrated by folk dances.

I made this cake.  It's much easier to make than it looks, and it was delicious.

I get that.  I just think you should care.  You have a daughter, right?  Do you really want her to learn from these games that her role in life is to be the helpless prize to be won, the spur to someone else's story?  Or do you want her to learn she can be the hero in her own story?
