Interesting But Not Maddening Stuff From The News

Very X-File-ish: What is it? Too, too funny:Fascinating theory: Where's Indiana Jones when you need him?Templar SecretsAuthor and Anglican Priest Lionel Fanthorpe returned to talk about Knights Templar secrets and the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark may have originally belonged to the Egyptians and it could have had alchemical powers to transform energy into a mysterious "fifth element," he said. It was then taken by Moses, he suggested, and later possibly brought to Ethiopia through the Queen of

First A Funny, Then Today's Brief Rant

The funny: One atom greeted another upon their encounter in molecular space."Hello, how are you?""Not well; I've lost an electron!""Oh really, are you sure?""Yes, I'm positive." The rant: Only in Colorado or maybe California could something like this have this outcome. This woman (the plaintiff) needs serious psychiatric help right away before she becomes suicidal (and I'm not being sarcastic or making lighthearted judgement). The following has been edited for all but the most critical info:

Interesting Coin; Cute Story

This looks like something Fox Mulder would find in an X-Files episode and develop a whole mythology around. It's a 17th cetury French copper coin with an image that no one can agree on the meaning of. Is it a UFO hovering over the French countryside or the mint designer's idea of how to represent Ezekiel's wheel from the Bible?This following story was told as a joke but sounds like it could have really happened:An elderly lady phoned Verizon to report that her telephone failed to ring when her

Going To Have To Give Up Reading The News...

Emphasis added by me. Since when has any supposedly Judeo-Christian culture decided that morality is determined by law and regulations rather than by an individual?'If you don't take a job as a prostitute, we can stop your benefits'By Clare Chapman(Filed: 30/01/2005)A 25-year-old waitress who turned down a job providing "sexual services''at a brothel in Berlin faces possible cuts to her unemployment benefitunder laws introduced this year.Prostitution was legalised in Germany just over

Not-so-good Day

Yesterday proved to be a not-so-good day for me. Started it off by slipping on my steps down into my garage and banging myself up, particularly my right leg. My ankle is still swelled from hard contact with a step edge as I tried to balance.Had some minor aches when I went to bed and I think that contributed to a nightmare as I was going to sleep. The details of the dream were very troubling and when I woke up after about an hour, it was was because my heart got to racing from the stress of t

What'd I Tell You 2 Entries Ago...

Apparently the owner of the business that has banned smoking by employees already feels he has won and is ready to move on to new peeves. See quote of part of new article below: CHICAGO (Reuters) - The owner of a Michigan company who forced his employees to either quit smoking or quit their jobs said on Wednesday he also wants to tell fat workers to lose weight or else. A ban on tobacco use -- whether at home or at the workplace -- led four employees to quit their jobs last week at Okemos, M

Another Personal Rant...

I'll comment here only by saying this seems extreme. Whatever happened to counseling students (and their parents) that seem troubled? It's also a bit ludicrous that they charge two pre-teens with felonies for implying violence but have not made any evaluation (or haven't revealed the details) of why they drew the picture or whether they may have been influenced by something done earlier by the kid they were supposedly targeting.Pictures Show Classmate Being Stabbed, HungOCALA, Fla. -- Two boys

A Personal Rant...

This article below reveals the kind of thing that chaps my you-know-what! Regardless of any individual’s opinion of smoking, if this sort of thing is allowed without challenge then there is nothing to stop an employer from progressively disallowing any personal activities that might lead to an employee suffering a health effect. I could see this trend disallowing employee participation in any kind of sports or do-it-yourself activity that might cause personal injury, in any personal relationsh

Prophetic Song Lyric

Was surfing around the 'net today and listening to a Gordon Lightfoot "best of" complilation on the stereo. Heard a song I haven't heard in years. Given the current state of affairs in the middle east, the lyrics seem timely though they were written 20 to 30 years ago (not by Lightfoot). But I certainly hope they're not prophetic...
