Wow

You've got to see this experiment. Mind-boggling.

Jack Bauer vs...

... Santa?!

Infuriating

Evidence that I'm not nearly cynical enough:
On Saturday, Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Grifter) announced that he would provide the deciding vote in favor of ObamaCare. In exchange–and yes, that is how it was framed–taxpayers in the other 49 states will forever pay the costs of Medicaid expansion in Nebraska. Oh, and non-profit insurance companies in Nebraska will be exempt from a new tax imposed on insurance companies in the rest of the country.
Another great comment:
You can't even dignify this squalid racket as bribery: If I try to buy a cop, I have to use my own money. But, when Harry Reid buys a senator, he uses my money, too. It doesn't "border on immoral": It drives straight through the frontier post and heads for the dark heartland of immoral.
We'll just say that this has me thinking very unchristian things about rope, lampposts. At the very least, it's a shame tarring and feathering has gone out of fashion (and would probably get one imprisoned for assault).

Link roundup

1) Another reason to hate universal healthcare.

2) Dr. Grumpy on why people should not write surveys in a language that is not their native one.

3) A pictorial history of US currency.

4) Hyperinflation. It's really crappy.

5) What if Calvin actually made his crazy snowmen?

6) Now this is the droidd you're looking for!

7) What happens when a father chaperones a birthday party full of 11 year old females.

Global warming: it's all in your perspective. (Click through his link for more info.)

This looks promising

And delicious! Maybe a baked good I could make without botching: No-Knead Bread!

A Time to Mourn

Just got home from a funeral.

The sermon was excellent, reminding those of us wondering why those we love must be taken from us so soon that "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." Though God will not fully reveal Himself or His purposes until the last day, a hidden God is not an absent one. On that day every tongue shall confess, every knee shall bow, and all shall be made plain.

But that day is not today... Until then, we but can hope with the certainty that the last day will come, and on that day we will understand. Amen.

Poker Face vs Neutraface

My mind boggles that someone can combine a love for Lady Gaga music with a love for typeface and come up with this:



I am seriously weirded out.

(See the Lady Gaga video/song of which this is a parody here.)
