Spam of the Spirit

I regularly comment on spam for the sake of the gullible who might fall for the various scams and hoaxes that are around. But I suspect that the most common form of spam that makes it into our inboxes rather than our spam filters comes from well-intentioned relatives and friends who say things like “This [Read More...]

Sylar and Specialness

I’m bound to have a number of reflections on episodes of Heroes over the coming weeks and most likely months (I will need to return the DVDs to the public library before I’ll have time to watch the whole first season). In this post we reflect on the revelations in the episode “Six Months Earlier” [Read More...]

Heroes and Evolution

I just recently began watching Heroes – from the beginning of season 1. I have done this with several series that I didn’t start watching from the beginning but had recommended to me later. (It was good to have something to do during the long hours of computer problem resolution besides staring at the screen [Read More...]

Intelligently-Designed Gnostic Hermaphrodite Sex

Apparently searching for “sex hermaphrodites” can lead one to my page on Intelligent Design and Gnosticism. I don’t find either word on that post. Perhaps among the comments? Anyway, apologies to anyone who comes to my blog via a search engine and finds the contents don’t quite live up to what they were expecting. I’m [Read More...]

Toyota’s Troubled Times?

More spam to highlight on the slight chance that gullible Google key words before falling for this scam. If one were foolish enough to believe it, they would have to believe that Toyota gives away money and/or cars for free to random people, when at the same time they are so financially strapped that their [Read More...]

SYSTEM FAILURE

I would hope that most readers will read the title of this entry and think first of the closing segment of the movie The Matrix. Alas, my use of the phrase here is far more mundane. Windows Vista finally crashed on me utterly and completely. I’m attempting to reinstall Windows XP and there are still [Read More...]

Merry Christmas!

There’s only one thing that needs to be said today… HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS! (if you are reading this in England, you have my permission to have a happy Christmas instead). [Read more...]

Advancing the Butlerian Jihad

I will be adding a new blog to my blogroll. It is the scarcely pronouncable Secher Nbiw, a relatively new blog by a Butler University student. I’ve long thought that there should be a religion club at Butler University named the Butlerian Jihad, but I thought there might be too many people on campus and [Read More...]

It’s A Wonderful Wife

My wife (who is not originally from the United States) watched the movie It’s a Wonderful Life all the way through for the first time over the past few days. Her reaction, once it was all over, was that the movie is about how Mary, George Bailey’s wife, repeatedly comes to his rescue when he [Read More...]

How many people have payment code 805?

I wonder how many people have received the exact same spam, with the exact same ‘unique’ payment code (see below). I wonder how many will fall for it, without even doing a search engine search on the subject. Presumably some people must fall for these scams, in spite of the obvious warning signs – otherwise [Read More...]

There Is A God

I just finished reading Antony Flew’s book (written in collaboration with Roy Abraham Varghese) There Is a God. There was a lot of controversy about the book, including even accusations that it had been ghostwritten in a way that did not reflect Flew’s views, in essence manipulating a senile old man. Flew has gone on [Read More...]
