I despise you and your so-called taste...

I haven't read all of the responses from this site, so some of them might be a bit...edgy (or worse). But, it's hilarious, and a pretty creative site idea.

Enter your favorite album, band, singer, or song, and the dude will give you a response to your choice in music...and a hard time about it as well.

"Then Their Faith Was Tested..."

What an amazing story of faith and commitment for this couple and their family.

How many people give up on others for so much less than what this family endures? God truly is the center of their lives. We aren't meant to go through suffering without His help.

Lussier family a test of faith

Destroying The Sacred

If you're going to PhotoShop something (yes, it's probably best used as a verb), then make sure it looks real...or else don't show it to people. Here's a tacky example (no, I don't mean "sticky"):

Jesus Monster Truck, et al...
http://www.gluck.net/jesus/

I did get a genuine kick out of the tiny print stating, "formerly the Stryper Tour Van."

Is this what people see when they think of Christians?? If so, then perhaps we're doing this Christianity thing all wrong. Just perhaps.

The mobile "Bikini Baptismal" deal on this page reminds me of people who try to package Jesus in with sexy women, greed, etc., etc., as portrayed in numerous movies over the years.

Sad.

(I'm just typing as I'm thinking...does that surprise you?)



What If...?

What if you would've said "Yes" to that person, or "No" to that other person a number of years ago? Craig Robinson wondered, and then he tried to figure out what might have happened through the help of this interesting website:

MicroCool Tool...

Here's a fun way to view the most popular searches on MSN's search tool. This site pits one search term against another, and then charts are printed-out on-the-fly when you click on your word of choice. Purty swift!

Need Some New (Star Wars) Wheels?

The Secret Lives of Librarians

These confessions of a librarian cracked me up, and got me wondering about what kinds of things I'd admit to in my profession (of course, since this blog is not anonymous, these are no mysterious things to admit to -- it's all done by the book).

Nothing Like the Feeling of Security

Thanks to Stupid Security Blog for this one...

The horizontal bar in the middle of the image is a "security" gate. Can you tell how well it's working?

The Old Adage Proves True Once Again

This site proves the old adage, "It's fun to watch an animated Gingerbread-like Man falling down a hill that isn't a true animated Gingerbread Man -- just a man."

See?

For Your Humorous Viewing Pleasure...

This little video is all kinds of fun...

A real dog is eating a piece of streak, and a robotic dog is inching closer to the steak. The real dog doesn't like that and then...

(you'll have to watch the video for the ending -- but the yelling by the people off-camera is the best part!)

Here's a Disney Film Just Waiting To Happen

Tortoise Adopts Stray Hippo at Sanctuary

So, the wildlife sanctuary took Owen (the baby hippo), placed it in the tortoise enclosure -- because they are similar colors -- in order to eventually move Owen in with Cleo, a lonely female hippo. Probably so they can conceive and give birth to little lonely hippos some day that will crawl around like tortoises their whole lives (just an educated guess).

And, it seems as if this wild scheme is working. Crazy!!!
