Zee Mission Revisited

If you go to lunch with a Mormon and ask the question, "Why are there so many Christian churches?" you're gonna get a good answer. Xiangyu and I had a fun chat.

Also, today in Syntax we were talking about question sentences and how you invert the subject and the verb to ask questions. So, "You will eat today." turned into "Will you eat today?" The teacher really emphasized the will to make her point. And it was all I could do to not chuckle heartily and then ask if the class had any concerns that I could resolve.

When you can be summed up

There was this little back and forth among the women of the family on FB and it ended up with the most succinct description of my essence, that I don't quite know what to think of being perfectly "summed up."

Oobleck and my faith confirmed

Today I was watching Nova on Netflix* and I had an ah-hah! moment about Jesus walking on water. I do not mean this bit of whatever by Kanye, El narciso en su opiniรณn. I mean, I think I know how it all went down. Oobleck. I think it was some sorta spiritual Oobleck device. I told Julie Rae this not long after I had the idea and she was like, "That much corn starch in the Sea of Galilee, really?" And I told her that I thought it was more like making the water a shade bit viscous-ier. But whatever. Oobleck.

I'mma think on an Oobleckian parable later in my life. But for now, a couple of minutes into this clip you'll see what I mean. (You can't see the clip in Google Reader. Hmmph. But you can on my blog.)

Watch the full episode. See more NOVA.

*I like to say NEH-chee-fleeks, like a Brazilian would.

So, do I call Child Protective Services on the commenter?
