One hides amid pornography, angry music, television that shows the worst of mankind, misanthropic politics, an internet populace led by all the passions: and then one asks, "Where is God?"

Do I need to make an account on them to do that?
Depends on the site, but I would say usually, yes.  I use photobucket if I want to host stuff. You can set up an account very quickly without too much hassle.

Cool, thanks.

You probably know that you had the opportunity of purchasing one of these back in March for about $3,000,000 with shipping included. It belonged to the Ukrainian air force. This is the cost of about three 2014 Porsche 918 Spyders. Do you want three cars that go 0-60 in 2.5 sec or a TU-95 built in 1987 with only 454 flying hours. The choice is clear to me. Your desktop is how I envision it at Yeshuaisiam's ranch. I do not know where else to park it.

If you didn't know, you should buy a SWR and listen to VoR  regularly:

I was trained and licensed as an aircraft mechanic years ago. The TU-95 was always a wonder to me. It was the first, if not the only, aircraft to have the tips of the propellers operate in the supersonic realm without disassembling themselves. Not to mention that it dropped the largest nuclear device ever delivered by an aircraft, or anything else for that matter.

And the only attempt at theodicy that makes sense to me.

Goal: We see in the image above a vision of heaven, where we wish to be, and where the best are destined to live for eternity.

Problem: How can someone like me, so wicked and horrible, ever stand to be in the presence of such angelic beings?

Solution: I must do battle with demons and men, who like me are scum, wicked, dirty, and as unworthy as I am of heaven, till at last I am washed clean with their blood, and grow to the fullness of understanding not only vice and virtue, but also my own place in the cosmos. Thus can we reach enlightenment, and be granted passage into the eternal kingdom.

You think I joke? You have not read the Psalms enough, or prayed them enough, or contemplated them enough.

^That is a photo from our first family vacation since the littlest one in that photo was crawling. We stayed in a nice house on the OR coast. The house was right on the beach, and the window behind them had a magnificent view. :)

you got some nice games on there... lets see.. the ones I have played on there are:

Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 (Yes... yes... walk through my long trail.. the beginning is a drinks kiosk, and at the end of the trail is a bathroom with a 1 dollar fee! then you must walk back!)

EU3... good times... I made a rage comic for it once... I still have it!

Spore, I played that quite a bit when it came out. I got to the center of the galaxy by simply making a trail of habitable planets to the center, so those zorg or whatever they are called would instantly be destroyed on the planet and not be able to spawn there! safe travels!

and hearthstone.. i am embarreesed to say i play it
