but just wait until after the autumnal equinox; [6 weeks ago] - you might wonder where the sun has gone.

What's with the Cyrillic's new avarar? Is that part of some Dutch Advent tradition or something?

My long personal nightmare is over. Or is it... today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. Either way works I guess. Also, I am not a crook.

So what if I am? We have nothing to fear but Nixon himself. Four score and seven days ago I promised to land a date with her before the end of this decade. And so I have. I will not yield, I will not stand down, I will not cancel my dinner reservations.

Wow Evos are really running at break neck speed to appropriate the accoutrement of higher liturgic traditions.

If it did not exist, they would have to invent it.
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Robugtix has been hard at work fulfilling orders for its T8 tarantula robot that debuted earlier this year, as well as showing off its lifelike motion engine in a new video. Now the company has also announced a much cheaper version of the robot called the T8X which can be pre-ordered for a fraction of the cost of the original.

For now it seems that I'm going to get interesting new tasks at job but also lots of new opportunities to screw up everything on a pretty massive scale. Sometimes I think that I should have gone to a vocational school instead of a university like my childhood friends did. Their lives seem a lot simpler than mine.

Does anyone else see different colors in with their left and right eyes?  When I look out of my left eye, everything has a warmer light to it and when I look out of my right eye, it has a cooler light to it. It has been like this for as long as I can remember, but I was thinking the other day, I wonder if since my two eyes perceive color differently, other people's vision could be substantially different from one another.
