got this in an email forward (from bill-bert
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:
'Let me see if I've got this right.
'You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages, and instill in them a love for learning.
'You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self esteem and personal pride.
'You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a checkbook, and apply for a job.
'You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and make sure that they all pass the final exams.
'You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicaps, and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Spanish or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card.
'You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for food stamps.
'You want me to do all this and then you tell me: I CAN'T PRAY
interesting what our society has turned into.. just like how the student paper notified me of how the word "christian" is offensive, and they cannot print my comic strip if it contains that word.. they printed the first one, which also had that word, but apparently "twice in a row" is too much.. yeah.. freedom of speech my foot. they managed to print some other really heavily religious articles like a girl telling her experience going on her muslim pilgrimage, or the other comic strip which made fun of catholics and protestants alike.. ah yeah, those are fine.. oh, and not to mention all the comic strips in poor taste, and having foul language.. the F word is fine.. but not the "c" word.. christianity is dirtier than the F word it seems.. what a joke our society is. big fat joke

mark driscoll explains what the actual
meaning of the verse that says that Jesus was "offered" a sponge soaked in vinegar.. its pretty repugnant.. and yet, again, shows just how incredible the love of our Savior and God really is.. and like i was discussing with joelie
, this is the example we were given to follow

just awesome.. you can tell he's a bit nervous at the beginning.. ah man, glory to God for this!
ok, i have to blog this before i go do something else.. like my hebrew homework (two assignments), or the rewrite to my "when was Jesus born" article i want printed whose deadline is friday at midnight... and guess how much time i have between now and then? and guess how much time i have to do my hebrew stuff? and guess how much it generally takes me? if your answers were "not much/enough", "less than 6 hours", "around 4 hours" then you were dead on! (and how in the who did you manage to do that??)
ok, so i seem to be fighting a cold, due to lack of sleep mainly.. since ive had soo much to do lately.. agh.. as always.. ive been meaning to work on my screenplays for the last 3 months, and have done almost exactly nothing.. fail? yes. (oh no! i cant believe i say "fail" now!! fail on me!) but it hasnt really fleshed out as a cold yet. its been more of a cough than anything.. and yesterday i woke up with a bit of a sore throat cuz i guess i was leaking snot into it from my sinus.. point being that theres several stages in a cold, one is the drip snot, that looks like water constantly leaking out of your brain out your nose, then theres the green snot stage, which is the grosser stage.. and then there might be a cough stage or it might be all throughout the cold. plus of course the initial cold indicator of the waking up with a sore throat stage. sometimes you can skip a stage, and many times its due to getting back to healthy really quick (usually as a result of just sleeping lots for several days straight). in any case, yesterday i went to sleep quite early, actually.. but oh my goodness, i just could not sleep well.. i kept waking up all night cuz i couldnt breathe, i kept having blockage of the throat, and would be woken up by it and making weird noises.. but at some point i managed to sleep pretty deep, and then i started dreaming..
and this is the point of the urgency of posting.. lest i forget more of the dream.. im not really sure about much that occurred in the dream, but i know that at some point we were in my uncle's room back at my grandma's house, and for some reason oleg was there, saying some stuff to me.. i cannot remember for the life of me what it was, but i think it was something that was making me upset in some way because i began wanting to puke in my dream.. but really quite strongly.. i began looking for something to puke in, like a bucket or something.. but the feeling got really intense, and i really really wanted to puke, to the point of wanting to force it.. i think in the dream i mightve found a bucket and started dry heaving when i suddenly woke up, unable to breathe.. i was basically choking and woke up my wife with it all. i realized i had been also drooling on my pillow (which i never do) and was just generally quite shaken.. yeah.. very weird.. what if i had died?? no more blog, no more insaner!! creeeeeeeepy!
for a slow thursday..

a poem by bill-bert
?LIE TO YOURSELF!?
Oh what a tangled web we weave
when we think whom to deceive
would be lie and fall off grace?
or conform and truth confess?
Will the truth set you free?
Will you take the apple from the forbidden tree?
Incendio, Impervious! Start the fire!
You?re a coward, you BIG FAT LIAR!
opus magnum willy the jay! huzzah! encore!
kanye west just doesnt know how to get out of the way..
not sure if its a bad word or not, but kanye is the definition of "douche bag"..

really cool thing i found on a christian site about hoaxes, creation and stuff like that (thanks to the future father of eljay castle-o, billbert
In most classical representations of Adam and Eve eating from this tree, the fruit is an apple, which would mean the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was an apple tree.
Well, it could have been an apple tree, but it probably wasn't. The apple idea stems back to a Latin pun, where the Latin word malum means both evil and apple. (The actual phrase for good and evil is boni et mali.) It's a pun that is lost in other languages, and as Genesis was written in Hebrew we should not place any reliability on a Latin pun.
haha, so there ya have it.. the tree of "good and apples".. or apples are bad?

some more info i added to my "condom debate".. as i was discussing a certain japanese celebrity that lost her job as a result of a photo of hers holding a condom and smiling..
i dont think we are disagreeing as much as you might think.. haha.. you both made exactly the same points i wouldve made.. AIDS prevention (along with all other STDs) is not as easy as being ideological. obviously, as [one of the guys i was having this conversation with] knows, i put more moral weight into the matter. biblically, sex outside of marriage is sinful. but this is only relevant to those who hold the bible as a moral authority. so secularly speaking, we have to objectively weigh all the points made.
the one thing i would add is: quick! dont think of a pink elephant! whats the first thing you think of? thats the problem with pushing the condom as the (or anything but a last resort) solution. do condoms help? yeah! but pushing the condom (and tell me you havent been exposed to those ads.. what is exactly the first thing that comes to mind?) is not a good idea at all.. its like those guys who breed fighting dogs, and then people get all upset that these dogs are so violent.. well of course! its what theyve been
pumped with their whole lives.. what else can we expect? see, i give people a bit more credit. i dont believe these people are animals incapable of controlling their urges. actually, as you might know, its the ability to control urges that makes us human!! treating people in that way "hey, they are going to do it anyway!" is not giving anyone credit.. not to say it isnt easy, oh no.. but of course, pumping the media with sex, and basically force people to not have a second thought without having it shoved in your face does NOT help. which brings us back to our original point. if the girl had had anything else in her hand in that photo, it wouldnt have been an issue.. say it was a little hello kitty doll.. who wouldve cared? but the media moguls had an issue with the girl driving people's thoughts in that direction, while (and i still havent been able to confirm if she is or not) not being married herself.
imagine you were one of those anti-gun pacifist people.. and you hired a nice young girl to be the face of your company, and then you found a photo of her with a loaded handgun and a huge smile.. like in the photo in question.. youd have a problem with that. (not to turn the conversation into one about guns.. haha)
but just to wrap up, i agree with all the points you guys mentioned. and would like to add that our fertility doctor told us (a married couple of smart, responsible, university educated people) that condom use is only about 80% at preventing pregnancy.. thats 80%.. and we're talking pregnancy.. now, for comparison, the size of a sperm cell is about 40 microns compared to the AIDS virus which is only about 0.1 micron.. and condoms have intrinsic gaps that are 5 microns large.. ill leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions given this.
the wrapper itself only claims a 99.x percent success rate.. if used correctly! that means that of around 1000 people using the condom correctly, sorry, at least one of them is going to experience a failure.. if used correctly!! imagine if you went skydiving and the parachute had the same label!
if this doesnt get you to stop smoking.. i dont know what will

a guy on my social networking friends list (we met once, nice guy) sent me this (which is apparently from dinesh d'souza):
there's a story of a guy who walks out of his home in Belfast and someone comes behind him with a gun to his head, asking:
Gunman: "Catholic or Protestant?"
Man: "I'm an Atheist!"
Gunman: "Catholic Atheist, or Protestant Atheist?"
in regards to this, he basically said that:
"main thing is it's meant to be a joke to make people think that wars and fights are not really about God or the religion itself"
it seems to be plucked from this set of vids.. which i havent seen yet.. (but it looks good)

by the way, "district 9", most awesome movie i have seen in a very very loong time.. good to see that if hollywood wont make good movies, theres people out there who will.. warning, however, it is definitely NOT for the weak of stomach.. bill-burt almost puked (mild exaggeration for dramatic effect) but seriously, he felt sick afterwards.. so, dont go on a full stomach if your stomach is weak.. or if you are, like baron says, "a sissy" (but you have to say it with a colombian accent)
but seriously, i couldnt stop saying "sooo awesome" constantly during the movie.. wow.. so many thanks to ary for the free tickets!! (yes, you heard-- err, read, right!! free!! as in dr pepper free! as in salvation free!!) ah man.. cant wait to see another movie like this.. so great
