So Wrong, So Often, For So Long…

Thomas Sowell wrote an excellent piece the other day. It’s definitely something to think about. If anyone suggested that Tiger Woods should try to be more like other golfers, people would question the sanity of whoever made that suggestion. Why should Tiger Woods try to be more like Phil Mickelson? If Tiger turned around and […]

Does your computer randomly crash and restart?

My computer (about three years old, I guess) was randomly crashing and restarting recently, so I searched around on the Internet for the symptoms and discovered that dust could be the culprit. I contacted the manufacturer’s support center and got instructions for removing the outer case, and sure enough, there was a lot of dust, […]

Merry Christmas

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas (that’s what the message says in Japanese, too). May God bless the American soldiers who are far away from their families at this time.

Dolphins rock

This is totally off-topic for my blog, but it is very cool. I’ll never look at dolphins the same way again. Dolphins save surfer from becoming shark’s bait

Another “interesting” conversation

Last time I mentioned a conversation, it was with someone who did not believe this world is real. That was an interesting conversation, I must say, but the other day I received an e-mail from some guy who was obviously not interested in any kind of intelligent discussion.

For the time being, Sanctuary, the first single from the album, can be heard on his myspace page, along with In Christ Alone, my favorite song of all time, and the […]

Kiefer Sutherland Arrested on DUI

Kiefer Sutherland was arrested for driving under the influence. What is it with all these Hollywood actors drinking and driving? I’m sure Kiefer is probably a great guy, but one thing that absolutely disgusts me is people driving drunk. I think people who are found driving drunk should be charged with attempted murder and punished […]

Humorous discussion

I engaged in a humorous discussion the other day with a person who believes that this world is an hallucination. I would provide the link, but I don’t want to “artificially enhance” the discussion. Anyway, I thought I’d share the conversation with you. Confused bloke: There is not one thing in this world that is […]

A martial arts fan’s dream come true

If you’re a fan of martial arts movies like I am, then you’ll be excited to learn that Jet Li and Jackie Chan are teaming up in a new movie called Forbidden Kingdom. I’m a big fan of both these guys. Personally, I think that if the fight were outside the ring, i.e. there were […]
