    Buddhism, NASCAR, Shakespeare, _Futurama_, and poker. No kidding. Someday I plan to corner the market on freaky unrelated interests, and then I'll take over the world.
  1. Did this come from one of us? It made the front page of Very Demotivational. Looks like the quote at the bottom is (wrongly) attributed to Gus Hanson.
  2. I've seen West Virginia strippers. I'm gonna go with 0.I've always been weirded out by the idea of strippers in non-strippery places. Vegas strippers, sure. New York City strippers, why not? But Route 30 in York, PA? The whole state of West Virginia? The 3:00 PM mid-week shift anywhere? That just ain't right.
  3. A slightly belated response to all the indoor/outdoor temperature postings. I wound up going into detail because I love it so much.
  4. You could go spend a couple weeks in North Dakota. It would make Iowa look positively balmy.
  5. This thread should have ended after Speedz's post.
  6. Florida ... sunny and pushing 60.Our old house in Virginia is huge, drafty, and cost a fortune to heat with the natural gas it used when we bought it. [Hot water radiators, natural gas boiler.] At the peak of natural gas's cost, it cost us $1,100 a MONTH to keep the house at a miserable, dispiriting fifty-five degrees.Then we spent $6,000 on a coal stove and new chimney. It was almost exactly $3K for each, and you almost always need a new chimney, because coal burns really hot and most 100-year-old chimneys are both too leaky and can't take the heat --also, IIRC, something about coal smoke
  7. 50 Philosophy Ideas You Really Need to KnowI have a couple of books in this series (genetics and something else that I forget*), and they're excellent. Each idea is summed up in a well-written 3-4 page chapter. Intelligent, goes into just the right amount of depth, at the end you'll know a lot more for a minimum of effort.* Edit: psychology, to have a reminder in one handy place of the classes I took as an undergrad
  8. That doesn't make LG's position look very good, now does it? The rest of Britain had better get busy.
  9. Okay, Strong's it is:http://www.biblestudytools.com/lexicons/he...jv/shabuwa.htmlAccording to the sidebar, the word "shabuwa," occurs 17 times in the KJV. Five of those times are for this one prophecy (because the word is repeated five times in three verses). So it occurs in 12 separate instances, including this one where it occurs five times in quick succession.In eleven of those twelve times, spanning nine different books, it means a seven-day period, the thing we actually call a week. Only for this prophecy does its meaning suddenly get changed to something different. Every other time i
  10. What?! No way. I demand a recount ... I saw the bracket, was pleased to make the sweet 16, and was quite content to be defeated by you. You totally deserved that one.Not to nitpick, but why is LLY in the West/South division? He's not even on the west side of Manhattan. And isn't VB in California?
  11. You're growing ever more certain of the exact meaning of the word, so it should be easy to supply the Hebrew word itself. I'd really like to see precisely what it is. Probably that. Three options:1) Then the world ended some time around 1955.2) The 63 years nine "weeks" of Israel's existence still don't throw your math off one bit. 69 + 9 +1 = 703) The world hasn't noticed Israel yet.
  12. Curling is a weird addiction: when it's right in front of you (i.e., once every four years), it's the coolest thing ever and you don't know why it isn't televised every weekend. Then it goes away and when you're reminded of it you say, wtf, why did I ever care about that? Then the Olympics start and you rediscover it all over again. I guess that's what "Olympic fever" turns out to be -- susceptibility to bizarre, intense, temporary fandom.In other words, wtf. Talk to me in 2014, if the Mayas haven't replaced all sports with severed-head soccer.
  13. Clearly you need to take more vitamins, then.On a related note, has anyone here had salvia tea? I would prefer making a tea over smoking it, but have only the vaguest directions and no one with much direct experience, seeing as everyone young and dumb enough to be doing it loves bongs, and I don't.
