Random Thoughts 1/19/11

  • A church member died suddenly and unexpectedly last week.  The funeral was yesterday.  Looking back I guess I'm not much in the mood to blog during times like that.
  • We are canceling Wednesday night church due to winter weather for the second week in a row.  Thank goodness for global warming.
  • Other church updates:  a) This Sunday is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday and my sister, Sonya Rice, will be speaking.  b) We are giving the green light to a church Super Bowl party, February 6 at 5pm (lasting until about 9pm).  Bring food and soda!
  • Surprise!  Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock predates The Big Bang Theory TV show, where most of us heard of this for the first time.  Remember, lizard poisons Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and paper disproves Spock.
  • Speaking of snow: I'm losing visibility of the parking lot here at the church.  It's snowing with a vengeance.
  • Color me skeptical; I just don't get the appeal of 3D.  It's a pleasant gimmick at theaters but why in the world would I pay for a special TV and wear clunky 3D glasses at home?!
  • Oh yeah, for the pansies that get all upset at the use of words like "cross-hairs" and "shoot" in casual conversation… get over it.  Casual references to guns, or even war, do not make crazy people commit murder.  Pansies.
  • And another thing, the ongoing competition between KU and Mizzou is the "Border War."  Not a "showdown," a war; people have actually died here.  It pits loyal, freedom-loving Kansans against murderous, slave-holding Missouri rebels.  As former KU coach Don Fambrough said, "It's a &@!$ war. And they started it."
  • We'll call that seizing the moral high ground.  Even if it is 150 years late.
