My parish put out a 13-minute video on how to go to church when your name comes up on the alphabetical list.

One thing I hate about watching vids of newborn kittens is how they pile on top of each other. They're so weak, I'm always afraid one is going to get trapped on the bottom and smother :'(

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

:laugh: I asked how you pronounce the name of St. Silouan, only to realise that I could probably just google it, and sure enough I found this video of Met. Anthony Bloom on the first page.

NOOKs from Barnes & Noble still exist, which comes as a surprise to me since I thought I read they were discontinued.

I wish some of the old-timers who still come here would start posting again ;) I'm not gonna name names, but I'm talking to you, people who were anything but shy back in the day, and who haven't posted in 4, 6, sometimes 8 years, and yet when you come across an old thread of theirs and click on their profile, it says they were last active like 3 days ago.

Also... treadmills, ugh. Now that things are opening up again I have to make my yearly decision of whether to re-re-rejoin a gym  8)

Sucks about the farmhouse.

Which is definitely the worst part of it. Forums tend much more to linear debates. Myspace and Orkut had a nice middle-term.

Facebook is really bad platform for any kind of serious discussion. Comment section is built like an instant messenger and it gets confusing really quickly. Even Twitter with it's character limit and all is better.

Doesn't concern me though. I quit Facebook few years back which leveled my quality of life considerably. Social media in general is mostly cancer.

The reason why people assert "Black Lives Matter" is because they are reacting to police killings of blacks.
The terms Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter, by themselves alone, do not really lay out this issue, so some explanation is needed.

When someone likes or retweets something you posted, and you wonder if they are aware that you unfollowed them months ago.

In the mail this evening, I got a book sent to "Current Resident" with my address.  It is an 94-page softcover called National Sunday Law / A. Jan Marcussen.  I read from Wikipedia that the author has some theology similar to the  Seventh Day Adventist, although the  Seventh Day Adventist deny a connection with this author.  By the time anyone reads this, the book will be in recycle, and I will be  pondering why anyone would spend money to send it out.

Oh I definitely agree with that.  I actually don't believe we're wired to handle a 24-hour global news cycle.  I'm not, at any rate.  :)  But something more than 0 might be warranted.  I learn of things thirdhand, and have to go back and look them up.
