It seems like the modern medical community is better at keeping sick people lingering than it is improving overall health in the later stages of life.

I think that is down to how much people look after themselves though when they are younger and then suffering the effects later.

Visited some friends out of state last night and drove home through two separate active tornado warnings. Crazy stuff.

The world was forever changed because you came into it. The future is rewritten because of the children to whom you gave life. Everything you do, every choice you make, changes what would have been. We are each writers of the great story.

My friend spent several summers in Israel as a kid, and one year her group went to Masada, and the guide told them the women there in AD 74 made themselves beautiful before their deaths, and the Romans who found them dead were so stunned by this that some veteran soldiers cradled the Jewish women’s bodies in their arms and wept. I’ve never heard that anywhere else but she said that’s what the Israelis said.

Interesting.  The only contemporary account of Masada is the one from Josephus, who did interview the only survivors the Romans found.  Guess I need to dig out my volume of THE JEWISH WAR and see if that's in there.

Probably some scheme older Israeli women cooked up to guilt-trip American Jewish girls into self-improvement. "If our ancestors could gussy themselves up to face death, is it too much to ask you to lose five pounds while you're over here for the summer, Rachel Beerman?"

My theory.

I keep finding sloppy anachronisms in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. For instance, they didn't have hand grenades in ancient Antioch, they didn't have neon lights in Dark Age Britain, rabbits had quit being carnivorous by the 2nd century, God didn't have an English accent til Victorian times, and police in the 1970s couldn't travel back in time to arrest people, because time machines still aren't common today, five decades later. And this is dubbed a classic?

It's raining, and I keep thinking how when people draw raindrops, they are drawing them upside down. The thick end should be at the top.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
