Split-Second Guess

Have I ever mentioned that Rashomon is one of my all-time favorite movies? I adore the storytelling device of multiple perspectives, even when its done for laughs like that episode of 21 Jump Street that was more or less my introduction to the very concept years before I actually saw the Kurosawa film. My sociology… Continue reading Split-Second Guess

Kindred Spirits: Return of the Shroud

Continuing on from earlier. "This is not a painting" Well, it's certainly not a burial shroud as you insist. This is for a host of reasons, but let's start with the most obvious one. Take an orange if you have one. Draw a face on it, being sure to put the ears on the sides… Continue reading Kindred Spirits: Return of the Shroud

Carnicom Undone

Since you've blocked me from replying, I'm going to answer your question here. So you have thus expressed your own personal interpretation of an ancient text, while criticizing my use of the ancient text, the Bible. If by "use of" you mean your own personal interpretation of the ancient text, then the answer is yes. Welcome… Continue reading Carnicom Undone

Mulholland Drivel

In today's exciting installment of "I Could Do This All Day" I have my gratitude for the thermodynamic miracle challenged by someone who would kill all the other rats in the maze if he felt for a second there was no cheese at the end. Self-awareness isn't just for Skynet, guy. This was a Quora… Continue reading Mulholland Drivel

Only Certain In Uncertainty

Previously. The sunrise and sunset is the only thing right now that i am not sure about. Well, that's a very big issue to not be certain of when it comes to the shape of the planet. We know the entire world doesn't experience day and night at the same time. If it's noon in… Continue reading Only Certain In Uncertainty

Dairy King of Flatland

Never would I ever have thought flat-earthers would find their way to Quora. I suppose it's natural they'd go anyplace that may serve as a platform for their rhetoric, but after Google+ closed up, I suppose I expected a more uniform scattering. Then again, maybe they were always there and I simply never noticed. The… Continue reading Dairy King of Flatland

Kimbles and Bibs: More Crumbs

If you're just joining us, we're observing a toymaker and children's author eating his own crow-flavored words about the fidelity of Biblical prophecies. “Your opinion is that of the new generational way of thinking. Many today think we are the gods and we owe no one” This is an accusation of arrogance. No words are… Continue reading Kimbles and Bibs: More Crumbs

Kimbles and Bibs

Terrice Kimble claims that Biblical prophecies are coming true, citing events like the establishment of Israel as well as the start and end of World War II. When taken to point on one of his claims being supported only by a satirical news article, he backpedals: “I really don’t watch the new, especially news that… Continue reading Kimbles and Bibs
