Thought I'd throw in something more light-hearted, for a change. I'll probably add more as the weeks go by.
1) Some years ago, I heard a Jewish lady (artist) who had an addiction to pornography speaking on the phone. She tells her friend "I'm trying to quit porn, but it's hard."
2) When I was in the Navy and stationed on the submarine, two other technicians rename the Twilight Zone after me. I still don't see why, as they kept trying to talk to me while I was reading a…Continue

I had, in the previous installment, covered the beginning of Israel as a nation, as well as pertinent considerations on the formation of Israel as a nation and tidbits from societies which pre-date Israel, since

The Tower of Babel
Now, as to what started all of this mass confusion, I am certain that it’s roots begin in the event depicted in the Bible known as The Tower of Babel. Prior to that event, it is recorded therein that people lived lifespans totalling some years shy of 1,000 years, and that after the tower event, people’s spans began to shorten drastically. For the sake of debate, let…Continue

This is a chronicle of some of the difficulties which I’ve had at Findley Commons with other tenants, primarily my two next-door “neighbors”, Kevin in #317 and Steven in #316.
5/24/22 Just during the first week I had two instances of trouble with Kevin in #317. Just three days after I had moved in on 5/16, Kevin had been displaying a horrid tendency of trying to run my life, so I started to tell him to quit doing that, as I had not yet realized that he had a chronic tendency…Continue

These are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges were actually taking place.
ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?

So I’ve gotten around to the life of the one many consider as their Savior (myself included, actually), but
for a great many reasons there is a lot of mystery surrounding his life and some questions about whether the information was transmitted faithfully. While there are a great many additional myths and legends about him, cutting through all that is quite the…

A Conspiracy of Silence
Author’s Preface: This is an advisory to any readers that in any instance that I state certain items for consideration without citing any source, it is because I had been informed by sources which I consider of impeccable character these concerns. Such examples are the time discrepancies which Hebrew scribes had attempted to resolve and the matter of the…

Gee, this is my recent encounter with FedEx, the first time I've ever had to use their services. This is how it turned out:
Notes: On the photo documentation, please note the one picture which shows breakage on the suitcase corner where the PC tower sits within it. I have not yet had the opportunity to disassemble the tower to check for breakage, but my technical prognosis from the observed symptoms of non-operation seem to indicate that the motherboard has suffered breakage.…Continue

The Latest Science
In March of 2013, Giulio Fanti, a professor of mechanical and thermal measurement at the University of Padua, in Italy, published his findings that the shroud dates from 280 BC (or BCE) to 220 AD (or CE)… the time of Jesus. Fanti’s research included 3 new tests (two chemical, and one mechanical). The first two were carried out with an FT-IR system using infrared light, and the other using Raman spectroscopy. The third was a…Continue
