      Saw Hancock last night with a group of people.
      We throughly enjoyed it, including by two sons.

      It had a fresh different feel on the "super hero" thing.
      (okay, there was a smidgen of a Star Trek (original series) episode in it)

      The first flying scenes reminded me of the first Spiderman movie where Spiderman was just learning to swing on his web. Hancock already new how to fly, but the way they did it and why (I thought) were well done).

      Very funny at the beginning, and got more serious near the end.
      (not that this was a comedy, just talking about the story)

      I thought the ending might be in jeopardy, but it came out ok.

      We will be definately be buying this one.
      I will give this one an 8 out of 10.
      It might be a 9, but it's hard to tell only seeing it once.

      I don't want to spend another $9 (cheap night) to find out

      An Irish girl went to London to work as a secretary and began
      sending home money and gifts to her parents. After a few years,
      they asked her to come home for a visit, as her father was in
      failing health. She pulled up to the family cottage in a Rolls Royce
      and stepped out wearing fur and diamonds. As she walked in the house
      her father remarked, "Well lass, they seem to be paying secretaries
      awfully well in London!"

      The girl took his hands and cried, "Dad -- I've been meaning to tell
      you something for years but I didn't want to put it in a letter.
      I can't hide it from you any longer ...I've become a prostitute.
      Her dear old father gasped, put his hand over his heart and keeled over.
      The doctor was called but the old man had clearly lost the will to live.

      He was put to bed and the priest was called. As the priest began to
      administer Extreme Unction, with the mother and daughter weeping and
      wailing bedside, the old man muttered weakly, "I'm a goner--killed by me
      own daughter! Killed by the shame of what you've become!"

      "Please forgive me," his daughter sobbed. "I only wanted to have nice things.
      I wanted to be able to send you money and the only way I could do that was
      by becoming a prostitute."

      Brushing the priest aside, the old man sat bolt upright in bed, smiling.

      "Did you say PROSTITUTE?! ! I thought you said PROTESTANT! !

      I have today off.
      Hope everyone has a great day!

      Watched a couple of movies, High Crime and Elizabeth the Golden Years.

      High Crime was ok. It sort of drops the story near the end out of the blue,
      but then the ending becomes pretty obvious.
      I will probably watch it again sometime.
      It was cheaper to buy it then to rent it ($5.)
      So under the circumstances, I'll give it a 6 out of ten.

      Elizabeth was ok. There are some striking scenes in it, but not a lot of action.
      I kept waiting for some brilliant strategy to save England from Spain, but it
      didn't really occur.
      I will probably watch it again sometime.

      In other news, a load of bees attempt an escape from transport...

      ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/080630/national/nb_bees_escape

      ...was travelling on a highway ramp near St. Leonard, in the northwest corner of the province, south of Quebec, when the load shifted and the vehicle rolled on its side shortly after 6 a.m.


      It couldn't possibly be that he was travelling too fast for the ramp, so it must have been the bees.
      smileyg.jpg

      Ok, maybe he was being careful, but it wasn't enough, I just found it amusing that it seems to imply that the load shifted for no reason.

    • Not Fishing

      10 years ago

      Stonesword

      A couple goes on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota.
      The husband likes to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife likes to read.

      One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and
      decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife
      decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors,
      and continues to read her book.

      Along comes a game warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman
      and says, "Good morning Ma'am. What are you doing?"

      "Reading a book," she replies, (thinking "isn't that obvious?")

      "You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her.

      "I'm sorry officer, but I'm not fishing, I'm reading."

      "Yes, but you have all the equipment. I'll have to take you in and write you up."

      "If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault," says the woman.

      "But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.

      "That's true, but you have all the equipment."

      Russian air force drops 25-kilogram bag of cement on house to improve holiday
      Reuters
      Published: Wednesday, June 18, 2008
      www.nationalpost.com/scripts/story.html?id=594869

      Russian air force planes dropped a 25-kilogram sack of cement on a suburban Moscow home last week while seeding clouds to prevent rain from spoiling a holiday. "A pack of cement used in creating ... good weather in the capital region ... failed to pulverize completely at high altitude and fell on the roof of a house, making a hole about 80-100 centimetres," police in Naro-Fominsk said.

      Before major public holidays, the Russian air force often dispatches up to 12 planes carrying silver iodide, liquid nitrogen and cement powder to seed clouds above Moscow and empty the skies of moisture. June 12 was Russia Day, a patriotic holiday celebrating the country's independence after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

      Weather specialists said the cement's failure to turn to powder was the first hiccup in 20 years.

      The homeowner was not injured, but refused an offer of 50,000 rubles ($2,150) from the air force, saying she would sue for damages and compensation for mental suffering.

      Now that we can have journals on watch, it makes more sense when you
      try to make a thread in the forums and someone says,
      "This belongs in a journal"

      It still doesn't make total sense when you want to address everyone on
      this site, but what can you do?

      So I would like to use this journal to discuss being agnostic.

      Who this journal is not for:

      1. It is not for atheists that think agnostics are "weak atheists".

      For the purpose on this journal (since it's my journal)
      an atheist is "whoever believes with 100% certainty that God does not exist".
      Likewise a theist is "whoever believes with 100% certainty that God does exist"
      An agnostic is "whoever accepts the possiblity of both".

      2. It is not for people that "haven't really thought about it".
      I was looking for a discussion, and if you haven't thought about it,
      there's not a lot of room for discussion.

      3. This is not a journal about trying to "prove" whether God exisits or not.
      That has been done to death.

      ------------------------

      I think the agnostic is the more "logical" thinker and has his or her own issues.

      I think agnostics are more tolerant as well. I've read/heard a lot of athiest
      comments and a large portion of their message is,
      "I don't force my views on you so don't try to force your views on me,
      and by the way, you're idiots for believing in something you can't see."

      Agnostics are more tolerant because they consider the possibility that the
      theists might me right.

      Agnostics also make the better observer.

      For instance, if there is a display of one religon an atheists says,
      "Since we cannot represent all religions, so we should not represent any."

      This is BS where the atheists gets what they want.
      At the least they should be saying, "all the religions that want to be
      represented have to put up their own displays".

      Some theists seem to try to shove agnostics in with the atheists and the
      atheists try to push them over to the theists.

      More often atheists want the angostics in their numbers so as to make
      their numbers, and thus "their voice" appear stronger.

      I used to read a usenet newsgroup for atheists, and stopped because it
      was mostly a hate group.

      And you know what else? All I saw was ridicule about the Christian religion.
      Why don't athiests comment about the Hindu religion, and how the cow is
      considered sacred?

      OR

      What about the good Christianity has done?
      The bible talks about wiping out a religion where babies were being sacrificed.
      This, to me, sounds like a good thing.

      The atheists often misquote the scientific principle.

      The scientific principle is not "prove it".

      The scientific principle is "propose a hypothesis and experiment to
      determine if the hypothesis is correct or not"

      This is more in line with the way (I believe) an agnostic thinks.

      If you create a hypothesis with a bias, you are most likely to
      only find evidence supporting your theory.

      Most of all, I don't see what is the big deal that atheists seem to make.
      Things like a "Christmas Tree" being offensive?
      C'mon, "GET A LIFE!"

      So there's a problem when certain types of tomatoes having Salmonella.

      www.fda.gov/oc/opacom/hottopics/tomatoes.html

      www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2008/NEW01848.html

      but they seem to be vague with some of the details.

      Like, is the Salmonella just on the surface or inside the tomato.

      Or, is it the organically grown ones or the genetically modified ones.

      I went home for lunch today and was talking to my wife about it,
      and my wife says,

      "I don't believe it's Salmonella. It's just a cover up for the
      genetically modified ones that are killing people. DON'T YOU WATCH THE MOVIES!!!"

      and I said,

      "Yes, I do watch the movies. And I can't believe you said that!
      Because usually, when someone is saying that, a bullet comes
      through the window and kills the person before they can finish!"

      I've been unkowingly using discount fuel in my Golf, and because it hasn't been filtered as extensively as it should have been, there's plenty of impurities that have clogged the filter.

      Volkswagens are designed for European driving, and the use cleaner fuel over there, and because we use substandard fuel in North America, the systems sometimes have a hard time coping with it. That's why my engine clogged up.

      no, more of a threat for those around me... lol

      I actually have other life threatening issues... if you read some of my old journals, you woould have known I have a heart condition... which has thrown a lot of other things out of wack, which in turn the doctors are working on correcting... no worries... most of this stuff has been caught in time to fix

      no, I LITERALLY have an estrogen issue.... I have had most of my "female parts" removed, and somehow my estrogen levels are way too high..... my doctors are working on a solution.... right now I take herbal supplements to try and straighten it out

      most of the time I am rather pleasant, but there are times that I am hard to deal with (yes, I ademit it!)
