In the last month I've thought about making a separate thread for geeky pics, but then I realized that this whole site is a geek site, so that's sort of unnecessary. Anyway...

More...

Those pictures are awesome. Thanks!

During the Olympics when I saw the flag carried by Ethiopian athletes, I knew the flag was "wrong". Thank you for reminding me why.
The back of the old Ethiopian flag:

"I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die [...] These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." -The Lord Jesus Christ

I thought it was hilarious, because this meme has been around for some time to make a point, which science in turn refutes and basically "ruins" the point (a testimony also to our scientific advancement as well).

I had never seen it before you posted it, but I can imagine. I was kidding about the Bones. Mocking my own stupidity for watching every episode of the show.

Really it is just a dumb idea. Anyone other than gay men and women really get their cockles warmed over about this? Maybe a necrophile? I dunno. I gotta watch more Hannibal to figure that one out.

The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Age comparison...



I had no idea Frakes (Riker) was that old when he started the series. I thought he was like 27 in the first season and then when he grew the beard he aged a half dozen years by the time season 2 started.

Comparisons for the other Trek shows...

The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel.

But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
