LOL, after a crazy weekend and only checking in on my phone occasionally, I am intimidated by the sheer number of unread posts. Loser.  :laugh:

Hahahaha.

The irony of that is someone at my work who gets off at the same time ended up in a car accident by sleeping behind the wheel. She didn't have any major damage but still it sounded pretty bad.

Me too Liza,

I literally did nothing in High School -- I just showed up.  Didn't know what was going on 90% of the time, but now in college you can choose what time you want to go to class, you don't have to wake up at 5:30 AM every day to catch the bus. 

You can also actually choose what subjects you want to learn about, not merely the stuff they choose to indoctrinate you with.  8)

Yeah, in College you can go to class at 11:00 instead of 8:00!  But then you find out there is no parking at 11:00 so next semester you set your classes for 8:00...

I had WAY more 8:00 classes than I bargained for. I went to a small college, and when you got to the upper levels, there were only one or two class times available, and no seniors wanted the 8 AM slot.

A downside about college: 6 - 9 PM classes. Ugh. I hated walking back to my dorm after Chem lab in the dark.

But college was so fabulous. So much changed in my life while I was there.

True, most religious folks (especially those who realise the flimsy nature of the evidence) would prefer: extraordinary claims require extraordinary faith  :police:

I think that extraordinary claims require at least ordinary levels of evidence...  if even that can't be produced, there's a definite problem, I think.

I lived at home, and communted to the university in downtown.  Therefore, I had to use public transportation (bus)....which meant I often had to catch it before 6 to get to my class on time.

I know what you mean Papist, but then again that also entirely depends on the teacher and the class.  Some of the social sciences or humanities, for instance Philosophy.. encourage you to think critically.  There are no correct answers in some of these classes,  and you're not just spitting back to the teacher a bunch of random information...

Haven't read it yet, will probably get to it this weekend some time. I did glance through it and my initial impression was that the advertisements had a fairy low-church Protestant vibe to them, but I may be mistaken (and/or that may not mean anything)...

I was in the supermarket glancing over the magazine stand and I saw Biblical Archaeology Review. Seriously?  :D  How many people shopping at a grocery store are also picking up that kind of magazine?  Anyway, I bought a copy, hopefully it's good. The front says things like "Secrets from the Dead Sea Scroll Caves" and "New Discoveries of Ancient Churches"...  8)  ;D

We had a subscription to that for a while.  The archeology articles were pretty good, as I recall.  Some of the ads were peculiar and there was one that caused a ker-fuffle in the letters section. As I recall, it was for a repro of the statue of Nefertiti's head.  Someone wrote in that she was a "beautiful black queen" iirc and it went from there.

She was 2 years and 3 months old in that pic (I only know because I include the dates I took the pics in the names of the files). I was going through old pics a few days ago and came upon a lot of potential future avatars of her and her sister doing silly things. :)
