TFT: Why Would He (or She)?!

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

If there is a God, I don’t think He would demand that anyone bow down or stand up to Him.

Humor: Sleeping with Bob.

[…]

Sleeping With Bob

The guys were all at a deer camp. No one wanted to room with Bob, because
he snored so badly. They decided it wasn’t fair to make one of them stay
with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns.
The first guy slept with Bob and comes to breakfast the next morning with
his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot.
They said, “Man, what happened to you?” He said, “Bob snored so loudly, I
just sat up and watched him all night.”
The next night it was a different guy’s turn. In the morning, same thing,
hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot.
They said, “Man, what happened to you? You look awful!” He said, ‘Man, that Bob
shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night.”
The third night was Fred’s turn. Fred was a tanned, older cowboy, a man’s
man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
“Good morning!” he said. They couldn’t believe it.
They said, “Man, what happened?” He said, “Well, we got ready for bed. I went
and tucked Bob into bed, patted him on the butt, and kissed him good night.
Bob sat up and watched me all night.”
With age comes wisdom.

Bible Study: Tombs for the Pharaohs?

Today I read that not a single pharaoh’s remains, nor the remains of any pharaohs’ families, have ever been found in any pyramid in Egypt.

The more I think about it, the more ridiculous is the notion that the pyramids were tombs for burying a few important people. That’s silly on so many levels. But when archaeologists can’t explain something, they call it “religion” amd dismiss it for being irrational, crazy, fantastic. Doesn’t have to make sense.

I’m on the trail of some very interesting theories and research here. Before the Internet, I could never have gotten this deeply into any subject. Amazing. And from so many sources!

Society: War Crimes

Well we can’t really say we’ve won the War on Poverty, now can we?

And we’ve actually lost ground in the War on Drugs.

Ditto the War on Crime. Plus it costs $30-40K a head for each prison cell.

It might actually be cheaper and more efficient just to give the money away. Let go of those fond notions of Justice and Punishment and Rehabilitation Through Incarceration. The only progress we have made in centuries was in the elimination of the counter-productive “debtors prison.”

Anybody else tired of this nonsense yet? Well, here’s one guy….

Tech: The Biggest Machine Ever Built

[…

You smash stuff together and see what other stuff comes out.

By the early 1930s Ernest Lawrence had invented the first circular particle accelerator, or “cyclotron.” It fit in his hand.

Now the U.S. government has an accelerator that’s hidden beneath several square miles of tallgrass prairie and a small herd of buffalo at its Fermilab facility west of Chicago. When you drive on the Junipero Serra freeway near Palo Alto, California, you pass directly over a two-mile linear accelerator.

And that’s not the biggest….
