glad patch

endurance is the ability to draw delight from outside of self.

it is a gift from God.

it is a heart-smile.

My behavior changes around this time of the semester.

1. I wear a hat a lot. Even, and especially, in my room.
2. I like studying on the floor best.
3. Study physiology becomes eccentric: I usually like to kneel or sit in such a way that the top of my forhead nearly touches my notes, arms circling roundabout in a self-hug. This is the preferred posture for remembering biochemical pathways!
4. I spend more time staring at inanimate objects, like the trail-mix on my desk, or my pencil, or the light-switch.
5. I alternate between feelings of savage cheer and solemn haste.
6. I appreciate music more.

I wonder if my behavior is different because I know Jesus is returning soon? Oh Lord, give me the same sense of urgency and reality.

ha! - awwwww

On my way to the cafe for breakfast I saw a paper that said:


I was thrilled. Maybe, maybe the campus was finally catching on...

I visited the site only to be dissapointed by the face of a duck I didn't recognize.

not the numbers

Jonathan posted a blog recently that referenced a BBC article which argued that "Global Warming" was un-related to man made emissions. Indeed, that we were on our way to a set of cooler weather for the next 30ish years.

I just saw this article on BBC, which argues that Global Warming is a very real phenomenon.

1) I appreciate BBC's bipartisan approach.
2) According to the numbers, it appears that our world is cooling and warming at the same time! In other words, these arguments don't start with facts, they start with a bull-headed hypothesis which will trample discordant data in order to save itself. It's not about the numbers anymore.
