Submitted too fast...

And, yes, while he may have said "agnostic" the day before he was executed, he still took the sacraments the next day. I don't think he knew what "agnostic" meant. He appears to have been a [more]

Re: Say It Like It Is

Yes, I saw that. But that was a brief time somewhere in the middle. He was raised Catholic, and later spoke of "core beliefs", and then took the sacraments just before his death.

He was Catholic(ish). Not agnostic. Not [more]

Re: Say It Like It Is

Belief in god and "core beliefs" (related to Catholicism) is not agnostic. An agnostic would have said "I don't know". He didn't say that.

Re: Say It Like It Is

Yeah, I'm with Hawkwin. French and Dutch cartoonists have zero to do with US policies in the middle east. It is simple blasphemy for which the Islamists feel justified to murder people because their texts tell them to.

Then how is it that literally billions of people can follow these texts yet are not violent extremists?

They don't.

They aren't violent extremists insofar as they DON'T follow those texts.

Nope. He was Roman Catholic.

Before his execution, McVeigh took the Catholic sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.

Re: Most And Least Bible-Minded Cities

So do I, interestingly enough. AZ is very red, but we're in the bottom of bible-minded cities. Cool.

Re: Penn & Teller do vaccination

I did not intend it at all as an understated way of saying "useless". I only meant the efficacy of the flu vaccine is not as high as the others, and is often a crap-shoot.

OK. Fair enough. I note that when they were [more]

Thanks, Denny. Without notable improvements in performance I'm not going to change her Macbook. New for its own sake isn't worthwhile, IMO.

Taking your definition Bush was thoughtless, right?

He did not seem to put a lot of thought into things, yes. He was not even slightly cerebral.

Re: Smoking Cheese

Makes sense. You'd have to cold smoke cheese or you'd just get a gooey mess. It was a very clever idea, I agree. I don't think I'd buy another WSM to do it, but I could imagine running a dryer vent tube to a wooden box or something similar (I could [more]

Re: Penn & Teller do vaccination

Isn't that the same thing as the flu vaccine is not as great as many other vaccines?

I wouldn't phrase it that way. It's not as reliable because the influenza virus mutates quickly. As for how I got there, I just replied explaining [more]

You said;

That is an understated way of saying "useless". For example, "Obama is a thoughtful president...Bush, not so much".

Re: outdoor carpeting on deck

That would solve your glare problem, but if the deck is in the condition you say then I think it is in serious need of attention. Rather than covering it up with a carpet you should stain and seal it. If it's too big a job for you, hire pros. [more]
