Where do the morning and evening prayers in the Orthodox Study Bible come from? I don't recognize them as being taken from the Jordanville or HTM prayer books.
Also curious. 
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

You use the Orthodox Study Bible?

Yes, for both readings and praying. I know people say it's not the best option, but I see no problem with it.

Most recommend and use the Jordanville prayer book. Ever since HTM accepted the Name Worshipping heresy I've been told to stay clear of their products. I also assume the Old Rite prayer book from Erie would be acceptable.

Writing a resume sucks. I paid someone last time to do it for me because I was both lazy and unsure of what employers screen for. The guy who wrote my resume no longer does the service.

Nah, on the rare occasions that I game anymore I'm a total Nintendo mark. I'd buy a Switch if anything at all.

They have a certain "primitive charm" that some people value as an aesthetic even now. Just look at current indie games like Fez or VVVVV. Whereas more "realistic" graphics of a few years ago tend to not be as well regarded and fall to "real is brown" criticisms and so on.

The simplistic graphics are an art of their own. Too many games nowadays try to be like the movies.

Currently my favorite game looks like this:

Pathos Nethack Codex, basically simplified (but still deep) more user-friendly version of Nethack. It’s free on the AppStore and, amazingly, without ads, IAP, or any of that nonsense.

About the image of St. Bernards carrying barrels of hooch. http://mentalfloss.com/article/20908/why-are-st-bernards-always-depicted-barrels-around-their-necks

Quote
The barrels we see around the dogs' necks in paintings and cartoons is the invention of a kid named Edwin Landseer. In 1820, Landseer, a 17-year-old painter from England, produced a work titled Alpine Mastiffs Reanimating a Distressed Traveler. The painting portrays two Saint Bernards standing over a fallen traveler, one dog barking in alarm, the other attempting to revive the traveler by licking his hand. The dog doing the licking has a barrel strapped around its neck, which Landseer claimed contains brandy.

Despite the fact that brandy wouldn't be something you'd want if you were trapped in a blizzard — alcohol causes blood vessels to dilate, resulting in blood rushing to your skin and your body temperature decreasing rapidly — and that the dogs never carried such barrels, the collar keg stuck in the public's imagination and the image has endured.

Eventful elections are far superior to stable institutions. Of the two favourite candidates for president, one is in prison and another is recovering from a serious knife wound. Of the two other relevant candidates, one is squatting and another is praying and fasting for the country in the wilderness. The curre t president has just made videos speaking ill of the respective candidates from both of his party's traditional allies. Amazing.

Who is praying and fasting?
Some guy called Cabo Daciolo, I can't manage to link or upload his pic here. He actually made Brazil's greatest TV networks climb a mountain to interview him. If I still lived on that side of Rio, I'd seriously consider meeting him.

I started paying attention on him after he turned his impeachment vote into prophecy, and some time later asked the new president to renounce Satanism and Freemasonry and follow Jesus. In the congress. In an incredibly polite way.
He recently made a video in front of a store with a miniature of the statue of liberty saying he would put all statues of liberty down as a president. One week later, a storm tore the torch of the statue down.  :o
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

There's tons of that! It's probably the main reason that EarthBound's localization took so long.

The music inside Dungeon Man is a highly distorted Jimmy Heart of Sergeant Pepper (fitting since that's where you get a literal Yellow Submarine), the Skyrunner music is one of the theme from some anime, the Runaway Guys are basically the Blues Brothers (which is why they don't have black suits on in the international releases and their name isn't "the Runaway Brothers" like in Japan) and their signature song incorporates bits of the Temptations's "Get Ready" and James Brown's "That's What I Want," among others.

Have a life with a lot fewer random bits of useless trivia? :P
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Why doesn't he like statues of liberty? Seems like kind a strange thing to get angry about.
Anti-Americanism. There's a tiny replica here that the ex-mayor claimed to be the ugliest thing in Rio too.

There's tons of that! It's probably the main reason that EarthBound's localization took so long.

The music inside Dungeon Man is a highly distorted Jimmy Heart of Sergeant Pepper (fitting since that's where you get a literal Yellow Submarine), the Skyrunner music is one of the theme from some anime, the Runaway Guys are basically the Blues Brothers (which is why they don't have black suits on in the international releases and their name isn't "the Runaway Brothers" like in Japan) and their signature song incorporates bits of the Temptations's "Get Ready" and James Brown's "That's What I Want," among others.

Huh, James Brown never actually DID a version of "Money (That's What I Want)?" The Beatles, the Stones, Barrett Strong... no James Brown. Somehow I seem to remember "Money" being the "cape song" and not "Please Please Please."

I wonder if that's a known Mandela Effect. Probably just caused by Tiny Toons, but still interesting lol.

I used a betaseron injector for the fourth time tonight. Took me a lot faster than when the nurse was here. Still hurt.

Does anybody know what this actually is? (Other than, you know, stupid). I feel like there's an entertaining hoax story here.

Can't find anything about it on Google, though.
