Planned Parenthood is the Right Hand of Satan

“Dear mommy, please vote yourself the right to kill me.” Perhaps the sickest ad of a sick election season, in which the “products of conception” (to use the “choice” movement’s terminology) beg mommy for the right to get rid of any potential little brothers or sisters. Nothing like having cute little moppets who managed to [Read More...]

How Prayer Works, And How It Doesn’t

god

After posting on prayer in the wake of our experience with Sandy, I got a chance to see it work up close. Two days after writing that post, my wife was struck with symptoms which everyone (GP, EMT, and ER personnel) thought were classic signs of a heart attack for a woman: nausea, pressure/pain in [Read More...]

Things I Learned in the Storm

the-warden

  Seaside Heights, NJ Sandy was as bad as advertised. Here in South Jersey, we got our butts kicked. It wasn’t too bad around my neighborhood, but it was bad enough. Power was out, which meant we also lost water since we’re on a well. Trees were down in the area and took wires with them, [Read More...]

The Lord Was Not in the Wind

breezypoint

In the shadow of thy wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by. Prayer works. No, I don’t mean “I prayed fer The Lord ta spare mah family/life/house/pets/car and bah gum He did! Not a branch scratcht a so much as a winder!” That’s not what I’m talking about. Because, you [Read More...]

It’s Quiet … Too Quiet

We’re just waiting for the storm to hit, watching old Universal horror movies until the power goes out. The wind has been gusting most of the day, and we’re ready for the worst. I may be offline for a while, so mind the gap and I’ll see you soon. Probably. Update: Monday 12:15pm: Still have [Read More...]

XCOM: Enemy Unknown [Game Review]

xcom main 2

I’m still kicking around the idea of doing one straight-up game review a week, with some material at the top with content warnings for parents. We’ll call it Fun Fridays and have cupcakes and lemonade! This week, we turn to a remake of the third greatest PC game of all time, a little something called… [Read More...]

But Will It Have an Austrian Accent?

petproto

I’m starting to get fed up with creepy new robots that look like they were designed solely to smash through walls and tear John and Sarah Connor apart piece by piece. DARPA’s Robotics Challenge has yielded this potential Cyberdyne Systems T-101 hunter-killer prototype. It’s called “Pet-Proto” and it’s the work of Boston Dynamics. The critter is [Read More...]

We Have a New Weapon

champ

And it’s a doozy. In the tradition of giving cute names to terrifying weapons (eg, Fat Man and Little Boy, Bubble Girl, Busy Lobster, etc.), this one is called CHAMP. Remember the neutron bomb as the ultimate symbol of man’s depravity, because it killed people with a powerful blast of radiation, but left buildings standing? (And [Read More...]
