I'm flying to Louisiana today.  Fun times. I'll be back Friday night, God willing.

Business or pleasure?
Business, although I might mix in some pleasure.  :P
I hope everyone speaks to you unintelligibly to the point that you will beg for a nice Southern drawl from a Waffle House waitress.  So mote it be.
Don't worry, I will briskly walk past all of them without so much as a "Hi" in true northern fashion.  I will also be wearing a t-shirt and shorts because it is in the 60's which will give you thin blooded southerners goosebumps just thinking about it.

I'm very much enjoying the weather.  It does make me chuckle seeing people out with scarves right now.

Maybe they're wearing them not because it's cold but because some nice person knit them for them. 
Please Mor, they are southerners. Don't give them the benefit of the doubt.  You have to keep them under your thumb at all times or they start revolts.

We don't need your stinking Amish furniture, with fine craftsmanship and clean lines.
Don't make me come marching through Georgia to come whip your... butt.

Sherman only did it to go see his girl in Savannah.  His game was off, otherwise his destruction would have been far more widespread.  What's your excuse?
Maybe if Savannah had a girl worth seeing...
God bless!

Opioids affect all faculties -- of perception, of expression, of movement or strength -- making one unusually aware of all that works together to make up Man.

It's pretty easy to tell. It's a Latin word from a German surname. Dictionary.com can't pull the wool over my eyes. ;)

Also -- extra hint -- even in English at no time does "chs" say "sh."

Me, I guess. That's how I've always heard it pronounced. If it supposed to be German it might be closer to Fook-see-ah.

The dictionary pronunciation is "fyoo-shuh" and that's how I pronounce it. If I wanted to pronounce it like German I would use the German word Fuchsie.

I wonder if some taboo deformation isn't responsible for the English pronunciation, however. It seems to have been borrowed too late to undergo all the necessary sound changes to get the form we have today.

There are conventions for adapting foreign words into English. "Fuksha" would be a normal adaptation. There might be others. No way no how could "Foosha" be the result of normal adaptation -- in neither the source languages nor in English is "chs" pronounced "sh."

Well of course that's what it is. Nobody in this strange and squeamish country wants to pronounce the first syllable the obvious way.

I went to see a Jewish play today. I really liked it. It made me think yet again that I need to read something about Judaism at some point. Jews are part of European history after all  so it's a shame really that I know hardly anything about their religion.

Korean pop star Psy has received so many views on YouTube that Google had to recode their website from 32 bit integers (which was good for only 2.1 billion views) to 64 bit integers.  Now Psy is good for 922 quintillion views - which will probably be reached by 2017 or thereabouts   :P ....

I'm looking at the trends and it looks like locally grown produce and freshly grown is the hottest trend now, along with fusion cuisine.

As long as it's local, the food itself will eb the star with if someone wants a classic bouillabaisse with a side of fried rice, then that's what'll happen

David Koyzis, a noted political science professor, has a blog where he identifies himself as a "Byzantine Rite Calvinist". What exactly that means, I don't know.

If you follow the Regulative Principle it's hard to see how much of the distinctive Byzantine (or Latin, or Armenian, or Coptic) liturgical patrimony can possibly remain once you've sheared off everything that isn't "specifically commanded in Scripture" (or rather, Scripture interpreted through the prism of Westminster, Dordt, the Institutes, or whatever).

So what, exactly, is a Byzantine Rite Calvinist?

David Koyzis, a noted political science professor, has a blog where he identifies himself as a "Byzantine Rite Calvinist". What exactly that means, I don't know.

If you follow the Regulative Principle it's hard to see how much of the distinctive Byzantine (or Latin, or Armenian, or Coptic) liturgical patrimony can possibly remain once you've sheared off everything that isn't "specifically commanded in Scripture" (or rather, Scripture interpreted through the prism of Westminster, Dordt, the Institutes, or whatever).

So what, exactly, is a Byzantine Rite Calvinist?
My best guess would be that he's assuming that the early Jerusalem church would have wanted to replicate the Temple worship as closely as possible and that this somehow evolved into the Byzantine liturgy.

I think I respect that position more than I do Phil Johnson's attempt to use the Didache as a justification for Evangelical minimalism, but it still seems dodgy.
Is that what they teach you at the temple volnutt-stein?

Actually, it's Volnutt-berg.

Rome doesn't care. Rome is actually very cool guy.

Someone who is seriously confused.

I'm NOT being flippant.

Batman gives Santa a ride to the hospital and public school in São Paulo

Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

You're certainly being charitable. :)

The first day I came here, my friends told me I have to switch from Starbuck to Tim Horton's. I might try it tomorrow.
