Bigfoot research makes professor a campus outcast

Go Jeff Meldrum!!!

I don't care how much you are persecuted, you are making a difference. You've made a great name for yourself as one of the top sasquatch researchers in the world (which, in my mind, is most highly prestigious), and you know your stuff. You've already proven sasquatch to me, so don't worry about proving it to the idiots who say you're nuts.

You continue on with this great work, because you've still got your fans.

For he's a jolly good fellow!
For he's a jolly good fellow...

A Menagerie of Quotes

Historical, scientific, you name it, I've got it. There are many more quotes that I like and love, and this is not meant to be a list of any sort, only a compilation of those that I have found interesting recently.

Historians are the most useful people and the best teachers, and they cannot be sufficiently honored, praised, and thanked.
--Martin Luther

Diplomacy without arms, is like music without instruments.
--Frederick the Great

Look at an infantryman's eyes and you can tell how much war he has seen.
--William Henry

Duty is the sublimest word in our language.
--Robert E. Lee (courtesy of Nathan Cunningham)

The march of Providence is so slow and our desires so impatient; the work of progress is so immense and our means of aiding it so feeble; the life of humanity is so long, that of the individual so brief, that we often see only the ebb of the advancing wave and are thus discouraged. It is history that teaches us to hope.
--Robert E. Lee

Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.
--Winston Churchill, October 29 1941, speaking at Harrow's boy school

It is only the biblical Christian who can truly see and appreciate the "rhyme" of mathematics; its inner "poetry" (resonance) as revealed by a seemingly unending series of connections integrating one branch of mathematics with another and its "rhyme" with the patterns of creation - how the creational laws are in sync and expressed (modeled) in, through, and by mathematical propositions. It is only the biblical Christian who knows the true source for this internal and external rhyme (harmony) - it is the covenantal laws of God in Christ upholding every iota of creation - invisible and visible.
--James Nickel, on www.biblicalworldview.com

If you really want to do something, and work hard enough, and take advantage of opportunity, and never give up, you'll find a way. Follow your dreams. If you really want to do something, don't let anybody tell you that you can't.
--Jane Goodall, primatologist

No matter what anyone says to you, don't give up or be discouraged from pursuing your dream.
--Rick C. West, araneologist


The last two quotes were taken from Talking With Adventurers, by Pat Cummings (National Geographic Children's Books). Rick West is a famous tarantula expert, and if I have to tell you who Jane Goodall is, I won't even try.

But to my point. Read those two quotes again. You can see it, can't you? The persecution--because that's all I can really call it. Whenever someone wants to amount to something in this life, and that particular field doesn't accord with the usual ideas of the world (not a sports star, a Hollywood star, pop singer, or a couch potato), especially science, the people all around them do everything they can to stop them from fulfilling their dreams, and to stop them from doing what they themselves find untasteful. They cannot understand, so they hate. It hurts. It really does.

But you know what? It doesn't work. It hast the exact opposite effect. I find it actually encouraging, in the opposite way. So to all who have done that, I'd like to thank them for unwittingly encouraging me. You only brought yourselves down.

The 1's of Christian Courtship

I only want ONE woman
I only want to fall in love ONE time
I only want ONE girl to love me, forever
I only want to see the altar ONE time
I only want the hand of ONE girl in my life
I only want to have a love interest ONE time in my life
I only want to kiss ONE woman
I only want the companionship of ONE woman
ONE plus ONE equals TWO TOGETHER

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Matthew 19:6

Is this not beautiful?

This is truly a most beautiful thing indeed. This is the real meaning, of true Christian courthsip, and of true Christian marriage. Again, all at Vision Forum have hammered the nail expertly in this article, "The Return of the Marriage Covenant".

Please at least read what I have quoted:

Long ago, both Peter and Kelly had pledged their bodies and their hearts to the one true love with whom they would someday be yoked in marriage. Recognizing that the successive emotional relationships promoted through the dating culture of our era are fraught with trouble and lead to physical and emotional defrauding, they purposed to take the more difficult but higher path which involved receiving wise oversight, direction, and blessing from their parents in laying the foundation for a true biblical espousal.

...

After the vows were read and the bride and groom pledged their troth to each other, they sealed their covenant with a kiss — a very special kiss, the kind you don’t hear about any more. A kiss of purity and innocence — a genuine first kiss.

As one of the men selected to officiate in the ceremony, I had the glorious, ringside seat to the very first romantic kiss in the life of both the groom and the bride. This is now the fourth or fifth time in my life that I have had the privilege of watching such a “first kiss” as an officiating minister to a wedding ceremony. Here are my conclusions:

First, these beautiful kisses are worth ten thousand sermons. They are an antidote to the cynicism of the age. They are instructive and inspiring. They give hope to mothers and fathers, young men and ladies, and the children we hope will also grow up in purity before the Lord. We are all better off as a community of saints when a pure woman marries a pure man. Our job as parents, elders, friends, and relatives is easier, because of this godly example.

Second, these kinds of kisses are victory kisses. Against all “odds” the couple has run the race to the finish line. They have won the first great race of their lives. Victory is sweet.

Third, they are also covenant kisses. They represent the blessing of God on the faithfulness of parents, their children, and the children yet to be born who will drink deeply from the testimonies of those who went before them. (Visit Doug’s Blog for more photos of the wedding celebration and the bride.)

Finally, they are biblical kisses. I call them biblical kisses because these kisses (as much as any part of the wedding ceremony, other than the vows themselves) restore the biblical imagery of the marriage covenant to its beautiful representation of the eternal, holy groom and his spotless bride. Body and soul, bride and groom have kept themselves only for each other.


Beautiful, isn't it?

Four "Eeeews!" in Two Nights

Tonight was good. Busy, but not too bad. It just got rather dull after being practically alone for two hours. Anyways it was fun to plot my revenge, after one girl kept bringing the go-backs from her department (Women's) to mine (I was in Home).* I finally got a bunch of clothes for Women's, but she wasn't there when I brought them! Argh! My plot was foiled!!!

Anyways last night had some more colorful fun. I found an ant on the register desk in Men's (which was where I was last night), and was able to get it onto a piece of paper. I showed three girls all total, and every exclamation was the same: "Eeeeww!"

My coworker in Men's speedily disposed of the insect (he said he hates them) by quickly reaching out and smacking the piece of paper in my hand. I held on to the paper, but alas, the poor ant was gone, rocketed off into oblivion!

Later I was pleased to see a tiny, ant-sized spider. (You would think that I do nothing on the job, but trust me, this is as far as it's ever gone. ;-D) I took him in by getting him onto a tag. My coworker said he wasn't afraid of spiders, but I soon called his bluff. You know how spider's will go down on long strands of silk? That's what it was doing on the tag...and I swung it towards him, and he immediatley smacked and wiped at his arm, thinking I had gotten it on him. I said I hadn't, but he seemed to feel better only after checking his arm again. ;-)

Anyways I let it go right outside...and when another coworker was leaving just minutes after, I told him to make sure not to step on it...he walked outside and shouted so I could hear him, "Oh, I see it!" and slammed his foot down on the ground with the grin. Ha ha! :-)

I'm snickering just writing this...but last night as I was recounting this to my sister (I was both exhausted and feeling silly--bad combo for me!), I was laughing uncontrollably. I get that way. :-D

Anyways, that's all for now. See ya!

*Yeah I know...Home gets both dull and busy, but hey it's better than truck. The same girl as being spoken of here said, upon me telling her where I would be for the night when I arrived, "Eeeeeww!"

Edit: Btw, Happy Thanksgiving all! I'll be gone tommorrow, with family. Love ya all! Catch you later! ;-D

BFRO Utah Expedition

My readers may take great interest in this. Check it out!

Results of the BFRO West Virginia Sasquatch Expedition

As always, they've done it again. They got some good evidence. Who can deny the existence of this creature? These findings are the norm for BFRO expeditions. (Certain people will think that there's a bigfoot-believer conspiracy here.... :-P)

It sounds like it was pretty bad there, for two hours. Three sasquatches, one perhaps 10-ft tall, throwing rocks at, and actually herding, the group? I feel sorry for any ladies in that group, if there were any.

And see that sketch...yeah, I think I'm gonna wet my pants now.... :-D

Feeling Patriotic

Please do click on the link.

It really is a great tribute to our nation's beautiful flag. I wouldn't have used the word "worship," but you can see their innocent meaning behind it. Overall, it's just wonderful.

Oh yeah, and check this out.

Are they insane?

I ask, what is wrong with South Korea right now?

North Korea has been there biggest threat for fifty years now, they just tested a nuke, and they think that now is the time to hold back?

First I must say that I think I understand S. Korea's stance here. They don't want, nor do they need, another brutal war. They remember the last one. They think that America (i.e., Bush) is creating an even larger rift from a country that some naively think was calming down and softening up (I think that's been shown to be rather false by now).

But I challenge anyone to give me one good example of a time in the entire history of the world, where a country ever retained all their freedoms, and attained a state of true peace, after they backed down and let their enemies walk all over them.

I didn't think so.

Wha!!!!!

All I can really say right now is "Wow!"

So I listened to most of Chloe's CD...and it's really great! Vivaldi's Rain is just gorgeous! Well, okay, I said that about the last two CDs...stop me!

;-)

Yahoo!

Right now I just want to get back upstairs to my room and listen to the new Chloe Agnew CD I bought on eBay that just came. Mairead's solo album and the Lego Advent Calendar (I'll have to wait to open that one...hmph) came too, so I can't wait to get off here!

75 posts!

Answers!

Hello my loyal audience!

Just now released are the long-awaited answers about the very boring guy who is called Dr. Paleo. Please enjoy my boring answers, for what little entertainment they are worth! (Note: questions are in order as asked, and are grouped by person, as in, whoever commented first, gets answered first.)


army man

1- what do you expect out of life, or where do you want to be?

I expect a lot of things, and hope for many more. I expect to be married, to have many children, to have a successful career as a dinosaur paleontologist (or is that more hope?).

2- What is the one thing you want most out of life?

To amount to something in this life.

3- Why do want to be a paleontologist?

Because, I love it, it is really like the most exciting thing I can think of. I love the discovery, the research, the "finding out" aspect, and all that. I'm very curious, and often find myself wondering about these animals. There is basically two sides to my brain. One, like a scientist, and the other, like a warrior. This job will also enable me to not only be a scientist, but to fight. And to fight for God. I want to devote my life to something more. I want to get in on the fight against Evolution. If it takes everything in me, I will use all of my power for as long as I live to endeavor to bring it down. If I knew beforehand that it couldn't be taken down in time before Jesus returns, then I would still fight it anyways. I've before been told "And you think your just the person to do this?" (to defeat Evolution). No. I'm not. I can't do it. God can. And you know what, he's my general. I just want to be his soldier.


nathan

So, with the nation focused so much on politics this week, I gotta know--what is your opinion of the Governator?

Not a good one. He's really a liberal in conservative clothing. He supports too many things that I abhor. It seems to me that's how many Republicans are these days. I'm not Republican. I think I'll chose the Constitution party!

What are your thoughts on America's current political state?

It is downright sad. We murder babies for absolutely no reason. We give more rights to criminals and illegals than good, law-abiding citizens. We are in serious debt, and, of all things, trade closely with China, one of our greatest enemies ever. (What happened if they just decided to stop trading with us? Next time you shop, look at how many things come from China. Yeah. It wouldn't be pretty.) Now we want to give rights to sodomites, and we penalize newlyweds and look down on people who have lots of children? Basically, we're being insane. We're asking for it. To me, it is not a question of whether or not America will fall. It is when.

What do you look for in a girl?

Short answer: alot.

Long answer: Modesty, inner beauty, etc. She must be at a similar stage in her walk with God, must wear skirts only, want to be a homemaker and have many, many children, and things like that. She should be able to put up with my bone obsession, and bonus points if she has the same obsession. Yes, I am very old-fashioned--so what? But that's it, in a nutshell, silly personal preferences aside (which do not matter too much, as long as she's no football fan! Heh heh heh....).

If you could be any living thing other than a human, what would it be and why?

A sasquatch, hands down. They are bodily similar to humans, and likely are the smartest animals around. Besides, who wouldn't have fun scaring some campers to death?

You are given the choice between a rake and a shovel. You choose the shovel. Why?

Because rakes are wimpy. I mean, leaves? Come on. Move something more! Shovels can make foxholes, trenches, and, when you run out of ammo, they sure come in handy for swatting little Nazis or Commies on the noggin.

How many fossils are in your collection?

Oh, I don't know! I have over a hundred low-grade shark teeth. Ammonites, trilobites, some dinosaur eggshells, some dinosaur teeth, and bone chunks, some shark vertebrae, things like that. But lets examine some of my better specimens.

I have a Flexicalymene trilobite with a bit of "matrix" (rock) on it, and on this matrix is some sort of sea plant, or something that is very fine, and radiates outward with hair-like ends in a palm-frond manner.

I once bought a Spinosaurus tooth mismarked as a shark one for $2, but unfortunatley, since it was packaged in a plastic box with shark teeth, the enamel had flaked off in parts. It would have been a perfect tooth before that. On the other hand, this enables me to see the dentine structure.

I have a very deformed (pathological) shark vertebrae. It is fascinating to look at, since it is all twisted and all out of shape. It is very porous in spots, and this may indicate the site of a tumor.

Some of my "low grade" shark teeth are fascinating too. One was eaten by sea worms (you know, how the sea shells look?) before fossilization, a few others have these little, almost sea-urchin like growths on them too. One tooth, which I believe to be a small Carcharodon megalodon tooth, is broken off at the tip, but the enamel has been moved over the broken part, now partially covering it, so, obviously, that means that the most likely scenario was that this occured during fossilization. Perhaps the break occured before, maybe even on the shark's prey.

I also have a large Spinosaurus tooth, of low grade, but definate beauty, and a C. megalodon vertebra, and, of course, an Oviraptor eggshell fragment (among others) given to me by an actual paleontologist. See here: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=198200

I also have some replicas, too. A sabertooth cat claw, a full-size Baryonyx walkeri claw, some small skeletons on slates, a Tyrannosaurus rex tooth, and a Pterosaur skull.

Where is your dream vacation?

The entire UK. England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the whole thing.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?

To say something nice about myself I find extremely difficult. But for you...perhaps my beliefs about the protection of women.

Do you prefer Corn Flakes or Raisin Bran?

Raisin Bran. That rooster is just plain dorky. ;-P

If you ruled the world, what would be your first order of business?Well, a ruler of the world would be someone like the Antichrist, and it would be wrong to aspire to it. But, to answer the question, I'd stop the baddies from being bad. Basically, I'd instate laws and things, keep the Commies down, etc.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

I love so many it is very hard to choose. Perhaps some of the ones in Job, discussing Leviathan and Behemoth? Maybe Deuteronomy 7:26?

How do you feel about America's influence around the rest of the world?

We have an influence. And we're using it mighty badly.

If you could choose only one possession to take with you beyond the grave, what would it be and why?

My choice might be different in the future, but right now I can't think of anything I'd want to die with more than what I wear about my neck daily. It's called the Shield of Faith, it was created for soldiers during the Iraq war, and is like a dog tag but is shaped like a shield with a cross on it. On the back, it has Joshua 1:9b on it. In fact, I'm wearing it right now. For a certain private reason, it means something to me.

What is your dream vehicle?

Uh...a tank? I really hate cars...how about a well-rounded war vehicle?

Would you ever run for any political office?

I doubt it. But I think we need more Christians anyway. Michael Peroutka, anyone?

What would be your weapon of choice in the event of an aardvark infestation?

A rifle. With a scope. (How DO you come up with these crazy questions?) Or wait, would poison ants be better? No, they might damage the delicate ecosystem....

What has been your favorite grade in school so far?

Oh, I have no idea. I really am liking chemistry, but then again I loved biology. I don't know! I'm sorry...maybe just to pick I'll pick now, my senior year.

What is your favorite color? Black. Then dark hunter green.

If cities were being established on the moon, what would you name the capitol? Lunaris.


lisa of longbourn

In what grade are you?

I'm a senior.

What kind of church do you attend?

A non-denominational church. Since it is impossible to find a church that fully accords with my own beliefs, let me tell you what I look for in a churh. I want it small, I want hard teaching, none of this feel-good fluff, I want Creationists, very conservative all together. In short.

Are/were you homeschooled?

Yes, I am indeed homeschooled. As of now, and always.

Why do you call yourself a doctor?

Because I want to be a doctor. I want an alphabet after my name! It will show that I've really done something in life, not to mention the knowledge that comes with it.


jane

-like lisa, i wanna ask what church do you attend?

(See lisa's question for the answer.)

-how old are you?

18.

-what do you look for in a girl?

(See nathan's question for this answer).

-if you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

To famous fossil sites, of course!

-if you could meet one person, someone you admire, either dead or alive, who would you meet?

Although there are many very admirable people in history, I'd have to pick Stonewall Jackson. Of course, that's barring Jesus. He's no. 1.


laetificus letificus

1.Do you like pickles?

I love 'em!

2.What size shoe do you wear?

Uh, a 13.

3.What kind of shoes do you wear?

Whatever's comfy! Sandals are the easiest to put on, therefore I wear them as much as possible. It just seems to me that I have better things to do that worry about tying shoelaces. :-D

4.What do your glasses look like?

Thin, silver, and wire-framed. Nerdy, perhaps, but then again I am a nerd.

5.What kind of shampoo do you use?

Uh...whatever doesn't smell like a girl, and doesn't come in a pink bottle! That severely limits my choices...so mostly Suave and Pert.

6.Would you ever go skydiving?

No. Not unless I could do it military-style. Then I would.

7.What color is your toothbrush?

Usually green or something like that, but I wish it could be black. Right now, I have to do with a plum-colored one...they were all out of green.

8.Do you use a brush or a comb?

Brushes are for girls. :-P

9. Do you use hairspray, gel, mousse or none?

Hairspray rarely, but usually nothing. It often messes up my hair, and doesn't fix it.

10.Do you like pineapple?

No, not at all.

11.What kind of girls do you like?

Christian ones, of course! (See nathan's question for a full explanation).

12.What is your favorite type of jacket?

One that isn't pullover.

13.What kind of music do you listen to?

Celtic Woman, Chloe Agnew, Civil War music, etc.

14. Do you know any dances?

Not a one. Unless the corrupted jigs I do when I get silly count. :-)

15.If your feet could taste, what flavor would you want your socks?

WIERD questions! Um, maybe...pasta?

16.King Kong or Godzilla?

Godzilla, definitely. He could smoosh kong with his little toe. Of course, he is innaccurate, shouldn't be able to stand upright like that, is scientifically impossible...so maybe kong?

17.What is your favorite type of cheese?

American, maybe. I'm not really a cheese guy.

18.What is your favorite flavor of popsicle?

I don't eat sweets, remember? ;-)

19.Can you tell me what color of eyes you have? and if so, what color are they (if you don't answer this one I completely understand!)

Oh no, I'll answer it. My sister says that they are a steely blue. But I like green much better...like yours, I guess.

20.Do you like crackers?

Some are okay.

21.Do you like seafood?

Not too much. But squid are mighty good, and them octopi must be perdy tasty....

22.What is your favorite game?

Um...board? Chess, then. I'd like to learn the "real" version of Risk instead of just muddling along with an ancient version.

23.Are you in high school, college or none?

High school.

24.If you could go anywhere where would it be?

A famous fossil site! Of course, I want to visit many US sites, the UK, Japan, S. Korea, Australia, and would love to go to China and Egypt for all the archaeological sites, but it's rather obvious why one can't.

25. Tell me some of your fun, random goals in life.

That's easy, I have lots of them! Well, I want to visit many places, see many battlefields, many world museums, I MUST, absolutely MUST go on a BFRO (Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization) expedition, to learn a language or musical instrument maybe, try on a samurai suit of armor, shoot weapons, an antique Civil War musket maybe, things like that. You know, all the nerdy stuff.

26.Around Christmas time which color do you like best...red or green?

Green!

27.What is your favorite Christmas song?

Um, maybe Carol of Bells? Mairead's is downright nasty! ;-)

28.Do you like tacos?

Oh, man, I love 'em!

29.What are you thinking right now?

Uh...nothing much...just answering your questions!

30.Did you have a dream last night? If so, What about?

Actually, I was at Mervyn's, the men's bathroom and the back room were one, and there were ponds and little areas where turtles, lizards, and snakes were kept. Lots and lots of snakes! Neat, huh?

31.Have you ever done pottery?

No, and I likely never will.

32.Do you know any other languages?

None at all, although I've taken Latin and know a few words of other languages here and there. I know English, though. (Hee hee!)

33.Have you ever had braces?

No, but my ugly teeth sure need some.

34.Do you play any instruments?

Oh, I wish. I wish so very badly. Violin....

35.What is your favorite movie?

Raising the Allosaur! (It's a Creationist paleo documentary. Duh!) After that I'd have to choose The Great Dinosaur Hunt...another documentary! But since I'm told that documentaries never count, how about Gods and Generals? Check my profile for more though.

36.What was your first impression of me? (I want the truth!)

Even during your absence when I first came to the Sly Piggery, I knew that I would like you from your posts. That's the honest truth. You're so much fun!

37.Do you have any pets?

No, but I've had frogs, etc....

38. Do you have short hair?

Yes, somewhat, but not like, crew cut or anything.

39.What is your favorite story from the scriptures?

Job and the Leviathan and Behemoth, the Genesis Flood, etc.

40.Do you like camping?

I've never been...but since that's how you find 'squatches, I have this feeling I'll do it someday.

41.What was your favorite vacation?

Uh...I've been on like, hardly any. Um, maybe one to Arizona? Most of my "vacations" are just daytrips, really. If those count, then the day I went to a Creationist Nuclear Physics conference (the illustrious RATE study).

42.Milk choclate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate?

I don't eat the stuff!

43.Do you like raisins?

Sometimes, I like them squishy.

44.Do you have a favorite tv show?

Uh...maybe some of PBS's stuff, barring liberal mud...or maybe some Japanese or Korean stuff? Home Shopping Korea just isn't the same since Grapehead left.... *sigh*

45. Do you have a favorite musical?

I HATE musicals, absolutely HATE them! I don't care what anyone says, NO ONE breaks out singing and dancing in the streets!

46.What is your favorite Disney movie?

Disney? I boycott Disney!

47.What time do you go to bed and what time do you wake up?

Um, normally, or since I've been working? I'll do normal. 0900 hours to 2000 hours. (I am still doing my schoolwork later than most).

48.Which would you rather have...a jar of toothpicks or a jar of cottonballs? You cannot open the jars and cannot use what is inside!

Toothpicks. Cottonballs are wussy.

49.Do you like turtles? ostirches? Giraffes?

Turtles beat the other two. I mean, come on? They're herps!

50.How many siblings do you have?

Just one, a sister.

51.Paris or Rome?

Rome, hands down. I'm no fan of the French kind of stuff...and Rome has all that ancient Roman stuff! *Ooh!*

52.Do you like video games? Computer games?

Some, like war games, I have a few. I like to hunt down my family members whenever they challenge me in Army Men, and of course I play this Civil War computer game where I get to be general....

53.Why do you like history?

WHY? Why NOT? As Douglas Phillips says it, it is the "revealed providence of God", it really happened, and we can learn from it. If you don't know history, you won't know what's going to happen in the future. Besides, it's downright fascinating.

54.Do you like salsa? Mild, medium, or hot?

Yum! Salsa...some like it hot..like me! I love my Mom's avocado salsa...mmm!!!!

55.What is something you really like about yourself?

Man, that's hard. (See nathan's question for the answer).

56.When you look at or meet a girl what is the first thing you notice?

Oh, I don't know! This is like the kind of questions that my sister asks me! Her face, I guess, and then the way she dresses. "To be modest, or not to be modest. That is the question!"

57.What is your favorite dish that your Mom makes?

Ooh, that's so hard...tuna casserole? Tacos?

58.What is your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid?

I don't know if I've ever had it, actually....

59.What is your favorite flavor of frosting?

When I used to eat it, I like vanilla.

60.Do you like sour cream?

Sometimes.

61.Butter or margarine?

Butter! Margarine's for those wimpy Fabio types....

62.Salt or pepper?

Salt, unfortunatley....

63.Chicken, beef, or pork?In that order. ;-P

64.Mozart or Beethoven?

Um, I actually don't really know. I like lots of classical music, but don't really know who plays them...I mean, how am I supposed to remember stuff like "The Fifth Concerto of the Eighth Assembly, First Movement"? But really I think Mozart.

65. Do you like the smell of chlorine?

Not really....

66.Clocks- digital or analog?

Digital! On military time!

67.Blondes or brunettes?

Um...brunettes, maybe? I don't mind either...they're both girls, after all...right?

68.Do you like squash?

Yup! I squash things all the time.... (No I'm just kidding! Yes, I like the food.)

69.Do you like taffy?

Uh, no.

70.What is your favorite kind of pie?

I used to like pumpkin a bit, but I don't eat it anymore....

71.Do you like fried chicken?

It tastes good, but is too greasy and is downright unhealthy....

72.Tricycles or wagons?

Wagons, of course. Tricycles are for tots!

73.Dragons or unicorns?

Dragons! Come on, white horses with poky things coming out of their heads? *bored eyes*

74.Pens or pencils?

Pencils. Mechanical.

75.How often do you write in cursive?

Um, my writing is called cursive italic...so somewhat often.

76.How often do you go to the beach? Swim?

NEVER! I might as well take a dip in my toilet for what it's worth. Seriously, there are constantly sewage spill problems out here...I'm dead serious.

77.Make-up or no make-up on girls?

A little, maybe...I usually don't notice. My sister will come away and say, "Oh, could you believe her? Her whites didn't match!" as if she had just committed some great sin. To quote Mr. Bingley, "I must confess it quite escaped my notice."

I morally object to tattoos (the Bible forbids them), but I guess I'll answer anyways for you...a spider probably.

81.Have you ever worn a bow tie?

As like, a six-year-old! They're so wimpy!

Only for very informal occasions, like garbage duty.

Sorry Nathan, but pigs are germy. Ducks all the way!

84.Do you like pancakes?

Nope....

85.Do you own a plaid shirt?

Uh, yeah...but they're too small....

86.Have you ever popped your collar?

No, what am I, a fat poindexter??!

87.Have you ever said..."Sup my homey-G?"? If not, say it and write a response.

Never heard of it. "'Sup, my homey-G?" "Nothing, just diggin' for bones, as usual, yo!" (There, did I do that right? I didn't think so....)

88.Have you ever gone surfing?

NEVER!!!!!! Yuck! The ever-prevalent surfing culture out here annoys me.

89.Have you ever eaten sushi?

Only cooked California rolls...you remember, we both carry hand sanitizer? Yeah, it's the germs. It's a shame though, they always look so pretty...and nowhere else can I find eel meat to try. Humph.

90.Do you like horseback riding?

Um, no...my sister does though...horses are rather smelly animals.

91.What kind of jam do you like?

Grape, maybe? Blueberry? Some sort of berry...maybe black. I had one kind that was all mixed and was great.

92.What kind of bread do you like?

Whole wheat!

Turkey. Ham is for sly pigs. ;-)


Well, it looks like that's all for now! Anyone can ask some more questions if they like. This is loads of fun!

My Thoughts/Quotes

As long as I live, I declare war on those who would harm women. It's high time you've been stopped, you beasts. Prepare for war, because your most devoted foe is coming. And he's mad. Really, really mad.

A true warrior draws his sword not to take a life, but to save one.

This sobering article makes a lot of sense.

It just does.

A dolphin with "legs"?

Yeah, sure. You want me to believe that? Just because you all found a deformed dolphin with an extra set of fins means somehow that they are really "legs" even though they look just like fins?

Okay, fine, suit yourselves. I'm not convinced!

Anyways this is a good article by the respected Creationist Dr. Ken Ham. Make sure to read it!

Exhasuten!!!!!

Yeah, so what if I misspelled exhaustion? I'M EXHAUSTED!!!!!!

Actually I'm alright...just an eight hour shift (plus dinner break) at work can get tiring. The first four hours was almost completely spent at the register...the stupid thing hates me, I swear. Computers...bleh! Anyways, it wasn't too bad...I was working with a girl the whole time, so I at least had help and a companion...'cept she left at nine, so I was bored for the next hour. :-\ But anyways, everyone is encouraged to open at least one new account...I didn't, except at 10:00 I did! Ha ha, how funny!

But anyways, check the link out. Special credit goes to a special person for making me aware of it.

Veterans' Day

Today is the day that we honor our nation's fallen, the heroes of wars long since past. I wish I could write more now, but I need to get ready for a nearly eight-hour shift at work, so suffice it to say that this day means a lot to me.

This is the day that we remember.

If you don't, then you do so at your own peril.

P.S. Check out the link. Patton's b-day, the dedication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, etc. Plus, if anyone wants to ask more questions, get to it now.

Gideon Algernon Mantell: Died, 1852

Today it would seem that the great British fossilist and discoverer, Gideon Algernon Mantell, died. He was a genius, and one of the forefathers of dinosaur paleontology as we know it today. I like him more than his rival, Richard Owen (who named the Dinosauria in 1842, not 1841, as the myth commonly goes), too.

Happy birthday, Martin!

Today is Martin Luther's birthday!

And, of course, today in 1775 was the birth of the Marine Corps!

"Once a Marine, always a Marine!"

Semper fideles!

Oh, I think I am going to faint with delight....

An American Civil War video game?????? Oh, somebody pinch me!

For years I've wanted one, even though I'm not a big gamer. But this one looks so good. The screenshots look just drooly!

If anyone has any info on this, the computer version, or has played either, please let me know!

P.S. What's a good WWII game?

Died Today, 1935

Paleontologist Henry Fairfield Osborn! I'm hurrying (I only have five minutes left in the day, lol!), so read this link, although due to it's Evolutionary bias I'll call in Disclaimer 101 (although it can always apply.)

Let's play a game....

Spurred on by Nathan Cunninghams's blog game, taken from his friend Nick's blog, I have decided to allow any commentor to ask me a question about myself. You can ask anything (At least ALMOST anything...we must keep proper, children. :-D), and I will most likely answer it.

Be what it may, ask away!

Some Fun!

Last night I worked...I had a good night. I talked about dinosaurs a little (to the interest of one of my readers), but still need to pull it on the two I have in mind. :-D

Anyways, I did get a reaction. One girl was shocked that I wanted to study dinosaurs and believed in Creation at the same time. She thought that Carbon dating proved the Earth was billions of years old...*grimace* The R.A.T.E. (Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth) study, done by the Institute for Creation Research debunked that myth well (actually, if anything, it proves the opposite: a 6,000-year old-Earth!) And the conference that they released this officially at was just today last year...I had the greatest time there...perhaps the most fun thing I've ever done. It's quite an enjoyable culture shock, to see skirts everywhere. ;-P

But to this girl's credit, she DID know of Mole Day...before I even mentioned it!!!

But some of the strange things that get discussed...from dinosaurs to spiders, to C-sections (I cleared my throat on that one, due to how women get when they forget about the guy there...lol!) and ghosts!

One customer lady did come to my rescue though, when no one knew who Jane Goodall was...I was trying to make a point, which was, that she is likely the most respected primatologist the world over, and although I don't apply to her views, she's outspoken about the belief of the Sasquatch! For that I applaud her.

Oh yeah, Friday night, it was pretty funny...in the breakroom we kind of ended up sitting all in a rough circle...and something occured to me. I was surrounded by nothing but women! I said, "Boy am I outnumbered."

Oh, and one last thing. Back to last night (Saturday night), there is this one Japanese guy I work with. He goes by a shortened version of his name, and I asked him his real name, and his last name. Right there, I was able to spell them both, and accurately too! He was quite surprised...also he said I was the first person to find his name easy to pronounce! It's actually a nice Japanese name, I think, better than the, say, guttural Gorobei. He also said that I know more about his country's history than he does (he's only been to Japan once as a young child, and is really more of an American than a Japanese), which, although I don't like to say anything good about my self, is really sort of true. 8) One girl replied, "That doesn't even seem right!"

Catch you later, friends!

Saddam sentenced to Hanging!

Ding dong, the witch is dead! Well, not yet really...30 days it should happen though...but we'll see were that leaves Iraq.

2007 Lego Aquaraiders set

Oh boy oh boy oh boy! *mouth waters*

GREEN snakes!! Can you believe it? They're just gorgeous! I want this set bad.... 8-)

Wow!

Look at all those birthdays today! Daniel Boone, presidents, and a physicist! Oh boy!

Good day to you!

Well, how are you all? Good, I hope?

Well anyways last night on the job I learned that I use big words. :-P "Conspiracy" was too confusing of a word to be used for them, and it was deemed "big". I didn't even know I had used a big word until...is that a big word? I didn't think it was.

Oh yeah, and the only "Nero" my coworkers know of, is (guess what?), Robert Deniro. :-/

Catch you all later!
