Atlantis ‹the domain of the Stingray›
Our kids are learning Algebra and Calculus, are expected to memorize the periodic table and to read Shakespeare. Their marching-band routines are ever more complicated, and they are supposed to know all the plays in the playbook. But when it comes to church, we say, "Don't bother me with the details."

I Don't Want It

Windows and Me

I don't know. Maybe it's the Mac commercials. Maybe it's the fact that I primarily use Ubuntu Linux. Most likely it's a combination of both (but mostly my use of Linux). I don't want Windows Vista. In fact, I don't want Windows anything. I can't think of a reason to keep it should I ever get another computer.

Dear Barack Obama

What's to say a vote for you will matter?

Seriously, I'm tired of all of your political ads saying that we can change not only the White House, but all of Washington [D.C.], [merely by voting for you]. It's nothing but endless political rhetoric. The same goes for the rest of your message; we've heard it all before—reaching across the aisle, working together, etc. We've heard this for too many years already.

I doubt a vote for you will do that. I doubt you can do that. I'm not saying I believe you will or will not try. I'm saying I believe your promises will go unfulfilled. I'm saying I believe you're saying these things without any real hope of actually being able to accomplish them.

Ugh

You Mean It's Only Saturday?

I am so emotionally spent today it feels like a Sunday afternoon/evening. Then, I look at my computer's clock and see that it's only still Saturday. Hopefully, I won't go to bed thinking tomorrow will be Monday, or...

It's About Time

to ethanol or not to ethanol

Ask my wife, and she will tell you that I am not a fan of ethanol because of the larger negative impact it has on the price of everything. Ethanol is derived mostly from corn to be used mostly as a fuel and fuel additive; flex-fuel vehicles that run on E-85 (85% ethanol, 15% regular gasoline) are the primary users of ethanol as a fuel; though many fuel stations sell gasoline with some smaller percentage of ethanol for use in normal engines.
