Novellas for the Beginning Spanish Speaker

Que Hora Es? is a skit put on by Cedric the Entertainer, and is for those whose Spanish is....less than perfect.

The Brain of Big Brother

Anyone having read George Orwell's 1984 knows who Big Brother is. Well, it seems that the future (or is it the past, 'cause it's not 1984 anymore) is now. The brain of Big Brother in the form of personal biometric data is going to be stored in a massive database. Then, the plans are to have the contents of the database available to local, national, and foreign law enforcement officers, as well as your employers (but only if they ask). Now, Big Brother can't always be watching unless he knows who he's watching, right? So, get ready for instant screening and location determination as the database eventually becomes available to all municipal scanning devices. Cameras, scanners, and fingerprint accepters will all work together so you will never be lost.

And when they say "You aren't in the system", they will soon mean it literally.

Dilbert Comic So True It Hurts

It seems that Scott Adams Dilbert comic, aside from being too accurate for most workplaces, can also get you fired if you are not sensitive to the feelings of lemurs.

Volunteerism is Alive and Growing

As the world grows and people get busier and busier doing the things that they do, they sometimes forget about other around them. Sibu didn't forget, and he is a volunteering dynamo.

If you can't take the time out of your busy schedule to help other people, think about Sibu. Maybe you can make the time.

Indonesian Nine-Year-Old Loves To Volunteer

SURABAYA, INDONESIA-They don't come much more dedicated than nine-year-old Sibu Sandakan. Unlike most boys his age, who would rather spend their free time skateboarding or hanging out at the mall, this generous youngster spends every chance he gets doing volunteer work.

Christmas Lights

I still need to put my own lights up, but I think if this house were next door, I wouldn't even have to bother....

The Bible: Book or Action Film?

The Bible is such an intricate document, full of laws, rules, stories and history. Here is another veiw, with verses that I just had to verify.

Seems they are all there, and as printed (depending on your version).

If the Bible had been written by King Leonidas and the rest of the Spartans...

My First Post

Well, since this is my first post, I've decided to post something dramatic. Maybe the cure for cancer or the formula to balance the budget. Or, I'll probably just use this as a test post and see if I really care enough to keep it up.

Yeah, I think I'll do that.
