Advance Australia Fair…magnificent cinema…aside from Muriel’s Wedding,try The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith,or perhaps Gallipoli.
Coffee, bacon, eggs however you want them, biscuits and gravy, and OJ(not Simpson…still in the NV pen.)! Eat hearty today, for tomorrow is only coffee and krullers day. I’ll be back- Arnold Palmer Shwarzenegger!
Nobody needs to clean the heads today since Sgt. Major Schultz did such a fine job on them yesterday!
Jawol, Herr Kommandant! I am . . .um . . .”honored” . . .that you . . .”esteem” . . .my work. I guess.
You should get rid of that “sinking” feeling, and rise above it all, proudly devouring your breakfast, Herr Sgt. Major! No toities duties for you!
Shouldn’t be too long before we find out if it’s for real or phony-baloney.
Perhaps the best thing to do would be to line up a couple more sponsors and offer him an insane amount of money . . .IF he can duplicate his flight in front of independent observers.
So what’s your percentage of the viral marketing take, Rufus?
If more than 1,000 clicks come over from Threedonia Fritz will let me clean the latrines!
Only after Kriskey’s made use of same!
You’re a cruel, cruel man, fritz.
It’s a fake. Take a look at the last video they put out before this one.
I’ve cued it up to the important part. After everybody runs away, and the camera points at the ground, watch the ground carefully. There’s a cross-fade there, to hide the transition from real video to CGI.
If they faked that video, they faked this one too.
And my devastating analysis of the video has forced the perpetrator’s hand:
Curse you, -Mike! I hope you feel good now, having caused our modern Icarus’ fatal decent into the sea of scandal.
It’s OK, though. Wouldn’t be long but what we’d start seeing the TSA show up at these flights, had they been real.
Your lamentations are sweet to my ears.
Yall, I have the weirdest friends. A couple of my online friends practice Wicca and are very into womyn(they don’t want men part of the word) power and the celebration of all things womyn. So for a celebration for a daughter’s starting her cycle, they have this ritual at the beach during the full moon, which is odd enough for me, BUT today they posted some of the snacks from the celebration. Cupcakes decorated with….well, lady parts. Full on, anatomically correct. There’s different colors, sizes, some with jewelry, one with a sperm on it. I’m am not kidding. Weird.
Huh…so what they’re essentially saying is they don’t want the men part of the ‘word’, yet they still want our essence on their lady parts. Yep — weird.
That is quite odd, for sure.
I don’t understand either gender having a need to belittle or minimize the other. As a man I’ve always been very, very glad there are lots of women in the world and I’ve never had a need to marginalize or downplay their humanity.
Well, I hope the gal had a Happy Cycleday, or whatever it is they call it. Floyd will be along in about 5 seconds to ask if the cupcakes are tuna or cherry flavored, but I am far too sophisticated for such lowbrow humor.
I wonder if they served tacos…
It’s actually called something close to “celebration of the sacred feminine”. Both of these ladies are happily married, one is even in a more traditional relationship where she stays at home raising the kids and he works outside the home. Neither of them put down men very much (that’s usually my Christian friends from church). My understanding is that they want to elevate and celebrate women just because they are sacred vessels.
Dan Brown alert!
I know. When I first read it I thought the same thing, I couldn’t believe people really thought and and believed that. It’s hard to tell what started what, as I met them long after that silly book, but they claim these are rituals are very old and he stole it from them.
No, he stole it from Holy Blood, Holy Grail…
Possibly the most illogically, poorly argued and written non-fiction book I’ve ever read.
You left off the quotes around “non-fiction”…
Ouch good one Rufus.
“As a man I’ve always been very, very glad there are lots of women in the world”
Same here, too.
Dang, is there a weirder word than weird for this? Bizarre maybe? I wonder what the daughter thought of all this. Most girls I know around that age would have been mortified.
I know! I would have been horrified. I am mostly horrified now….but I’m fascinated by the detail. They are really very artistic, in a “oh-my-Lord-why-would-you-do-that” kinda way.
wouldn’t buttermilk donuts have been easier? Crazy Whackans and their Guya worship
But it’s the homeschoolers that we need to worry about. Riiiiight.
Wicca is simply a scrubbed form of plain old evil, satanic witchcraft. If I were you I’d either get them converted or dump ‘em!
We’ve been friends for years, I’m one of the few Christians they trust. For a long while now out relationship has been limited to responding to the occasional FB post. I just keep living out my faith in front of them and ignore most of what they do….until we got to the cupcakes….then I mocked them.
Leading by example is always the best – great job, Tracy!
I’m trying to think of a male coming of age thing to use as a comparison to test if these women would be as excited about celebrating that gender equally. I won’t share what I came up with, but my guess is these women would revile a group of men celebrating it. No offense to your friends, but this sounds like something intentionally engineered to create a false feeling of superiority. It’s nature and hormones. As Cole Porter sang, “Even educated fleas do it.”
Oh, come on! Share! Share!
I’m sure they would hate any male counterpart and it seems a bit worked up to me too. They reject the sacred ritual of the Church, but they still desire the comfort that ritual brings.
Well said. Very astute.
Men don’t do male gatherings in the same way! NSFW:
“plain old evil, satanic witchcraft”
Please you’re giving them too much credit.
I think “glorified hippies” fits better.
Of course, that sums up modern Satanism as well.
So you’re no Sinatra fan?
His song, “I Did It My Way” is the theme song played at the gates of Hell!
My 8th grade music teacher made us sing that at our graduation. I’d probably hate it, regardless, but that experience makes it especially loathsome to me.
I don’t know that I would “dump them.” There’s nothing wrong with being friendly as long as you’re a mature enough Christian to stand firm in what you believe. I know some Christians who refuse to have gay friends. I have some friends who are gay and are really nice people, I don’t agree with their life style, but sin is sin no matter what you call it and everyone’s a sinner. So, just be friendly and show them the love of Christ.
Since “God” is the creator,why did he make homosexuals?
God made created people and God created choice. People can choose to sin, so I suppose if you want to use the term homosexual to mean a human being who happens to choose to live the homosexual lifestyle then yes, God created and loves that human being. If you are using the term homosexual to mean the lifestyle, then I don’t suppose God created that any more than he created adultery and murder. Those are corruptions of his creation.
So murder is on the same scale as two people of the same gender loving each other…I feel my leg being pulled.
I don’t suppose I said that either way, did I? I simply said homosexuality is a sin as are murder and adultery. Sin is simply a corruption of God’s original creation.
Is smoking,Doc?Is drinking spirits?Eating Doritos?
Are they forbidden in the Bible?
The Bible does not condemn drinking…only to excess. Same with food. We need food, but excess is sin. Remember how the Romans ate…food…barf…more food…more barf, etc.? That is sin. It can be applied to almost any non-sin. Excess anything normal and good can become sin by overindulging.
Scott… I won’t pretend to know the mind of God… but we all have things — impulses or whatever that pull us one way or the other… it doesn’t mean giving into them is OK. I tend to overeat and have a mouth like a sailor. I’m not proud of either one and I’m responsible for the damage both may do to me and others around me.
Smoking is not, but if the body is a temple, then smoking is sinful because it damages the body. Reasoning from first principles as Aquinas would say.
See Matt. 15:16-20.
Romans I is pretty pretty definite as are a few other statements about certain uncool human behaviors. God also gave us free will Scott…that’s one of the cooler gifts He gave us.
The ancient Hebrew version of Thou Shall not Kill really should be translated as thou shall not murder.
What Doc said. God did not create anything sinful or perverted. That came into existance when Adam and Eve fell and sinned against God. Then the Creation was cursed by God, and we have what we have.
