Non-Chalcedonian food is gross.

Really? My godparents (Anglos going to Greek church) told me that the Armenians have the best food they've ever had. And I had a lunch that was prepared by a congregation of the Indian catholicate of the Syriac Orthodox Church and I thought it was great.

That may be the saddest part of this exchange.  Grab a breath of fresh air, friend - isn't it summer down there?  Enjoy the sun.
Its foggy and raining Father. This is the wettest Summer in eleven years

come on people....stop being mood killers...take your Aquinas opinions elsewhere...

I'm trying to see if Serbskie will remain in the times, or will he forever walk away.

I'll make you a calendar.  It would look like this:

http://www.evidencebible.com/witnessingtool/evolution.gif

...just back and forth baby...back and forth...

[edited for addition to text]

I'm frightened to say....I don't get it  :(

LOL!  I was trying to make the point that i'm so behind that i'm working my way backwards in the evolution chart (my calendar).  But I found an even better chart (the link), which has it going both ways.  Hence why i said, back and forth.  Sometimes I progress...sometimes I regress. 

Can't believe I just explained that...where has my day gone...

I never understood eBay.  I knew a guy who purchased law school review books and cassettes for his wife on eBay.

I've heard that the owners of the item log on and bid from another account, just to boost up the price, and they know that you're going to bid-war with them. 

Just another theory.

I don't believe that's within eBay's end user agreement. Even we have rules against sock puppetry, and our members aren't collecting payments from each other. If you have evidence that certain users are engaging in such practices, report it to eBay.

It can be useful and inexpensive, sometimes.  I've gotten a lot of out-of-print books (on Japan, history, SF, children's books etc) very cheaply from various places around the US as well as Australia and England.   I have a set search for size 16 men's shoes for our oldest son; that is not a size that you can find in most shoe stores, let me tell you.   Sometimes a seller or a store will put up a pair at a low price because they want to get rid of them.  Twice we've found very needed pairs that were "buy-it-now" at *very* reasonable prices, 19 bucks or so, too.  Sometimes people will sell text books that they don't want anymore for much less then new or at any of the used book sites.

My 84 year old father sells stamps on Ebay.  He's had a little home business doing that for decades and this is just another way of selling.

Which is why I never buy things or services from sellers unseen.  Same applies to Craigslist and the one reason I haven't joined social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook.   :)

Fascinating pic.

On a lighter note: I guess we really are on pace to break 400,000 posts by the end of this month, especially if we keep up the (at this point record-setting) pace of 430+ posts/day.

It's about 2:10am here, and I'm still awake. I have to get up at about 7:45am. I'm not really sleepy at the moment, but I don't think I'm going to be able to stay up all night and then make it through the entire day tomorrow without sleeping. On the other hand, if I wait till I get tired at 4 or 5am and go to sleep for just a few hours, I'll be crabby all day. Humbug! :D

I'm always glad I went into computer science and not engineering.  I like my mathematics discrete, not continuous.  :P

I'm guessing the other two semesters are multivariate calculus and partial differential equations?

I have a set search for size 16 men's shoes for our oldest son

Holy Kubuli!!!! That's quite a shoe size.  I can imagine he's pretty darn tall.  Does he play basketball?

and (scary thought) I don't think he's done growing yet.  I should change the search to size 16 1/2 maybe.  ;)  The last we measured him he's about 6' 3 1/2" I think. But that was a few months ago. I think he only does a bit of basketball in gym class sometimes.  (he'd like to learn fencing he told me.  He'd have quite a reach) 

But I come from a line of tall people.  My father and brother are both 6' 6" and a cousin broke 6'7" I think. And we all have big feet go go with it.   As a saying goes  "We'd be half a foot taller if there weren't so much of us tucked underneath"   ;D

The next 7 days are going to be great.  Caprica starting up on the 22nd and Mass Effect 2 is out on the 26th!  ;D
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

I have finally managed to grasp integration by substitution.
My favorite kind. :)
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

While I love the mathspeak here, and I know that it aids us in the quest for 400k (we're only 3,027 posts away!), there is a math thread that you all should take it to.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

Well, imagine the worst headache you've had. Then make it so light makes it hurt worse. And sound makes it hurt worse. And movement makes it hurt worse. So... you're left to lay in bed motionless, in the dark, in silence, with the only thing you can do is think about how much your head hurts.   I'm glad that I haven't had one in a very long time! I once got one after a night of playing 007:Goldeneye with friends. I couldn't get the images of gunfire and exploding proximity mines out of my head. Not pleasant. :'( 8)
We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

Ughhh. Not fun at all. I don't think my current headache is quite there yet but its a nasty one to be sure. One of my pet peeves is when people go around saying they have a migrane headache but are clearly still functional. I don't think that those people have ever had a migrane nor do they have any idea what one is.
