Dennis Kucinich

According to this Q&A, My Kucinich is the guy that most closely matches my national interests.

I wonder if it means anything that Dennis was a 100% match with me.

Do we go out on a date now or what?

Who do you like?  No cheating!!

holla back

preliminary and subsequent tests have failed for the carbon-based material destabilizer anti carbon matter subwoofer.  Although conclusive results have shown that rediculous amounts of sub bass can call animals from accross the globe as well as shake appart just about anything there is still no way to controll the exploding particles.

i am now working on a unit that will create a double force field.  The outer force field will positivley charge everything from 4” to 12’ off the ground the inner force field will hold a strong negative charge. this will create a repelling affect for unwanted traffic.

The Passion of The Christ. - The review


well, no one died or had to be removed from the theater.  however i am glad that i had eaten before the screening as i had no words nor any appetite afterwards. 

Being a Christian and trying to live as true as i am able to the teachings of my faith i know that i never can quite remove myself from a lifestyle of hypocracy, shame, and lies.  to say it short, i fall way short of what i know is my capacity for love, and this film, for me, pressed that home.

so back to the film.  Im very familliar with the history of the crucifixion of Jesus.  The film by Mel follows the Bible allmost exactly.  unless you were a “citizen” or priest of great standing, jewish folk back in the day wouldn’y speak latin but mostly hebrew or greek since that was the previouse territories tounge in which they resided before Rome came on the scene.  However the touch of spoken latin and sub title made for a very “origional” flavor and texture.  The graphic violence and brutality is enough to make most cringe and sickened deep within their guts.  The fact that this is a story about an innocent man setup, tortured, and cruxified just to get him out of the way and stop trouble for the jewish high priests is enough to make you so sickened in anger that you want to cry out for justice.  the film envelops you imediatly and grabs hold of you for hours even after youve arrived safley back at home.  thoughts of “what if” and “could i do that” , “why me” , “victory for God” and “why am i here” seem to surface together in a whirl wind of emotion.

I can say that the film shocked me, the kind of shock/stun that 110v would give if you touched the wrong live wires, and I don’t think that I was alone.  when the house lights went up after the credits scrolled away into dimishing darkness the audience sat; together silent, no whispers, no stiring, just sniffling and dabbing of cheeks and eyes.  We had arrived some 45 min prior to the screeng and found only seats in the third row from the front.  i had a great vantage point to the rest of the audience.  Durring the time of the violence and beatings you could here people whisper “just stop it” “oh my God”, and varied utterings and gasps..  i suspect that tears flowed more than soda and consession as entirely through the fim sobs could be heard from around the room.

For me I don’t know if this is a life changing experience, as i expected.  However, my hearts been changed long before the screening.  but I tell you It sure gives my imagination an heart a good look at the human side of Jesus and what HE went through for ME.

I don’t know about drivers in VA.

On our way to Georgia last week, I had the pleasure to drive through the great Commonwealth of Virginia.  Rolling down I-95 towards the intersection with I-85 in Petersburg, I noticed that there are more cars in the left passing lane than there are in the right lane.  I also notice that the cars in the left lane are going slower than the cars in the right lane.  So, I pass the cars in the left lane.  But then just just 10 minutes later, I notice the same thing.  I don’t know what it is about drivers on I-95 in VA.  They can’t seem to cruise slowly in the right lane.

I also notice that I never seem to notice the speed limit signs during this stretch.  So, because I am sure that the speed limit on I-95 in VA is between 75 and 95 miles an hour, I choose to cruise at around 85 miles an hour.  I don’t want to impede traffic by going too slow nor do I want to exceed the posted speed limit too much.  So, 85 MPH it is passing all of the Sunday morning drivers (which actually occurs on Friday night).

Anyway, during this period I start to conceive and mentally design a device that will simultaneously fire a rocket out of the front of my car and anchor a chain connected to the rocket at a safe location off of the road.  This way when the rocket enters the car that is impeding traffic, the anchored chain will snatch the vehicle out of the way before my vehicle passes the impeding vehicle’s space.  “Better driving through science”

I’ll need some additional design details.  So, B, if you’re reading this, holla’ at me.

The Passion of The Christ

I will be attending a screening of the film “The Passionof The Christ” this evening.  I’ll write back with note on my experience.  i say “my experience” because as its been noted that attending the film quite possible might change ones life.  From hysterical church goers to fatal heart attacks in the theater, to people sickened by the brutality of violence, i offer you the following links to research a bit for yourself.

thought for the day…

Dogs and cats are better than kids. They eat less, don’t ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive your car, don’t hang out with drug-using friends, don’t smoke or drink, don’t worry about buying the latest fashions, don’t wear your clothes, don’t need a gazillion dollars for college, and if they get pregnant, you can sell the results.
