Friday Funny: Woman as explained by an engineer

Ok, I thought this was funny enough to post. If you have dial up you may not be able to download some of the images. If you click on the images you will be able to see the entire thing, I realize some of them have been cut off, I am to lazy to fix them.

Book Recommendations

BookshelfIf you haven’t looked before please take a look at my bookshelf located to the right of your screen. I am trying to get a few more books for the year and I am looking for recommendations from you, yes you.

I have a good deal of books on my shelf this so far ready to be read, but I would like to mix it up a bit. Most of the books I have to read now are theological in nature and I need a variety.

So please if you have a good book of any type, fiction, non-fiction, religious, sci-fi, classic post a comment below. If you can include the full title and the author that would be great, if you can actually put the amazon link in that would be even better. Thanks in advance and watch my book shelf to see which ones I have selected to read.

Redeeming Time

Many of us have time that is wasted, like the drive to work sitting and waiting for something. I have done my best to redeem this time by always having a book with me to read (while waiting not driving) and now I have really grabbed onto the idea of podcasts to help me out. I listed to several on a regular basis, while I work, while I drive, before I sleep, while I do chores around the house.

If you don’t know what a podcast is you can read about it here on Wikipedia. But the short of it is a Podcast is a series of audio files that you can subscribe with the right software, which will be automatically loaded to you listening device ie iPod. Heather and I got an iPod video for our family for Christmas last year and I think it is the best investment we have ever made. Here are a list of good podcasts I have found maybe you will find them helpful as well:

  • http://theresurgence.com/podcast/feed — TheResurgence.com is a Missional Theology Cooperative. This podcast is funded and lead by Mars Hill Seattle, if you are interested in theology or Christianity then this is a great place to visit and an essential podcast to have.
  • http://rss.marshillchurch.org/mhcsermonaudio — Mars Hill is a great church in Seattle it is cutting edge without compromising the gospel of Jesus Christ. Their teaching Pastor is a little rough around the edges (many people find him offensive) but he is a great teacher.
  • http://www.bibleonradio.com/podcast.xml — This is the bible in a year every day on your iPod. What else do I need to say?
  • http://feartheboot.libsyn.com/rss — This one is strictly for gamers but if you are a gamer you have to hear this.
  • Podiobooks — While not a single podcast this site supports authors in their effort to get their work out, you can download serialized books a chapter at a time or all at once if the book is finished. I have found some to good and some to be bad.

The Big Bang Theory

No this isn’t a discussion of string theory or anything by Stephen Hawking, since I am assuming the holiday will slow down traffic here I have decided to write about things that are a little lighter. So, this is a request for everyone to watch what I believe to be the funniest show out this season, “The Big Bang Theory”

I normally don’t watch shows their first season because I am afraid of the heart break they will bring in the event they are canceled but this one caught my attention and I had to try it. It is a show filled with clever and intelligent humor much in the vein of “Frasier” but with a little more geek thrown in for flavor. Check out the youtube page for more clips but you must try this show Mondays on CBS…

30 days of crap

I have rarely walked out of a movie and been so upset with myself, in fact I would say that this is the most angry I have ever been after watching a movie, and I have seen “Powder”, “Dungeons and Dragons”, and “Dracula 2000” “30 Days of Night” was by far the worst movie I have ever seen. I wasn’t very thrilled about seeing it to begin with but I was out voted by some friends who wanted to see it.

Random Thoughts

  • I saw a report of Foxsports.com about the new “Worlds fastest Man” a title given to the man who holds the world record in the 100M dash.  The link said, click here to see highlights of his record breaking run.  How does one edit down highlights of a 9.74 second race?
  • Walking down the hall at work I am accosted by signs with factoids about the work being done by the United Way.  Now I don’t give to them due to some moral disagreements but the issues they discuss are volunteer groups keeping streets safe, calls to food banks, kindergarten kids in trouble, and I can’t help but think that if the church was doing its job these things wouldn’t be necessary.
  • The more I think about the quote “It is easy to sound prophetic from the margins but what we need is people who are prophetic from the center” the more I truly believe it.  It quote was from John Piper talking about the loss of the Gospel as the central theme of sermons in America.
  • I found out that “LOST” isn’t coming back until May but it will run straight instead of that crappy 8 week break.  And that it will only be going for 6 seasons, it is good to know that there will be some finality.
  • It is simply amazing how much paperwork you have to do in corporate America.  When the paper work takes more time than the actual work you are doing the paperwork for something is wrong.
  • “The Big Bang Theory” is probably the best new show I have seen recently, it seems that since I became a father I don’t want to watch Law and Order CSI or any of those more serious drama shows, and most comedies haven’t struck a chord with me but this show is great.  It will probably hit with the same crowd that watched “Frasier” because many of the jokes are based on intellectual and geek issues, if you get a chance check it out, if you really get a chance DVR it and pause it on the producers “vanity card”.
  • Sorry I have been out of blogging for a minute, our family has had a great deal of drama over the last week.  Heather’s purse was stolen our of our van at Blockbuster but a few days later the dufas threw out her wallet but missed the dumpster and it was found by the apartment manager so we got everything back but our cash and debit card which we had already canceled.  Ironically, most of the cash that was still in her wallet was our charity money so we decided God wanted us to give to this guy money so we are just thankful to have all of her other stuff back.

Helz Angel

Ok, it isn’t my normal post, I am working on something more substantial but this is my first Youtube video. If you don’t know we are spoofing Criss Angel, because EVERYONE on his show is a plant. They all work for him.

Smokin’ Weed with Jesus?

No it isn’t just a catchy title to grab your attention although I think it will do that as well. I was watching Ralphie May’s “Girth of a Nation” comedy special and from the info page of my DVR it said one of the topics was doing drugs with Jesus, I was nervous but why not. I actually think he had some profound things to say especially in looking at how the Gospel would be written to a certain group of people.
