Someone wrote how the real miracle of Jesus was that he was able to keep in touch with 12 close friends in his 30's.

The first answer to it was "Well, 11."
I'll show you ruin
I'll show you heartbreak
I'll show you lonely
A sorrow in darkness

If Jesus were on earth today, I don't think he would eat M&M's.

Is there a specific word for when someone runs film forward, then backward, then forward again to make someone appear like they're dancing?
I'll take you places the hand of man has not yet set foot...

PRESIDENT HAMILTON got its first one star review today.
Can't please everybody, I guess.

The novelization of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is very enjoyable, about on a level with good fan fiction, and slightly irritating in that Tarantino chose to emphasize some aspects of the onscreen story and the backstories of the characters, while completely skipping past huge onscreen moments, including the main event at the end. Why?

Earlier in the summer I wanted to get a closer view of some baby herons at a riverside nesting site, so instead of taking a path to get close to them and risk disturbing the parents, I scaled down a pretty decent size cliff, and when I was mid-way to the bottom I realized what a bad idea that was. I made it but I don't think I will be doing that twice.

For most of the year my son and I (mostly just us) have been building a solstice-sunrise aligned thirteen-stone henge in a clearing in our woods. I hope we confuse the heck out of future archaeologists.

The bad part about cooking Indian food is no matter what you do you smell the spices on your hands for a couple days after. That's also the best part.

Wanna hear something odd? (If your answer is no, then stop reading.) I used to be friends, and then later....well, not friends, sadly, with this woman across the country at whose house I used to stay sometimes, and I found out she died a couple months ago at age forty-three, and---here is the weird part---the medical examiners were unable to make a ruling on how she died. They ruled out a lot of things, but in the end, even in this day and age, her cause of death was listed as undetermined, which rarely happens in the United States in the 21st century. Her niece said it best: "It's like life just suddenly left her body."

I went to an outdoor concert the other night, first I've been to in....gee lemme think....uh, since 2020? And you know what I figured out? It's sometimes more fun to watch the bats overhead chase moths in the lights than it is to stare at the performers on-stage bashing at their guitars.

I have a theory that George R.R. Martin truly is a sadist (for supporting evidence consider the material he writes into his books), and is getting his ultimate sadist jollies by making the world wait so long on the next ASOFAI novel.

I was in Washington DC last month, and bought a Marine I was with a sno-cone. On other occasions that week I'd tried to buy him nacho fries, pizza, and an off-duty beer, but he always said, "No thank you, ma'am." I know it was a hot evening but I wonder why a sno-cone was what finally changed his mind?

I used to know a man who lived on the Gulf coast of Mississippi, and in the 2000s a hurricane hit his home town hard, but you know what he said? "A small price to pay for living in paradise." Good outlook, that. Shame his girlfriend later killed him.
