1: Yet another reason to see the EPA as a bunch of meddlesome douchebags.Four Cool ThingsPosted by Ann Barnhardt - June 26, AD 2012 8:16 PM MST
1. Put this in your "God is really, really smart. Humans? Not so much." file. Within just the last few years, farmers all over the U.S. have noticed a strange and completely heretofore unseen incidence of SULFUR deficiency in crops. Odd. Why would sulfur deficiency issues suddenly appear where they had never been seen before?
It turns out that the sulfur in the diesel burned by the tractors would aerosolize in the exhaust, and then precipitate and FERTILIZE the ground at planting and harvest as the tractor effectively covered the entire field. When the tyrannical government removed pretty much all sulfur from the diesel itself, and by mandating sulfur-scrubbing exhaust systems on tractors within the last decade, they removed the necessary sulfur fertilization mechanism from the system.
So, just reviewing, God Almighty specifically creates this planet filled with a substance that not only is an incredibly efficient energy source, but which also contains needed fertilizer which the burning of said fuel in internal combustion engines perfectly spreads over farmground making it incredibly productive above and beyond the productivity made possible by the internal combustion engine-driven devices themselves.
God, smart. People, stupid. The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy must be exterminated before they kill us all.2. Here is the sharpest, sprightliest 101 year old person I have ever seen, and her awesome 1930 Packard Straight Eight. What a car. And, should there be an EMP attack, her Packard will still start and run like a Swiss watch, while the rest of us will have 4000 pound paper weights in our garages.
Note the sign: "Age and treachery will overcome youth and skill." What a gal!
3. Here's a very cool Shroud of Turin nugget for you. Now, you have to be careful with crazy numerology stuff. If given enough calculation cycles, you can use numerology to make anything look like it is related to anything else. Demons like Farrakhan use crazy, insane numerology nonsense arguments, as do many of the "Rapture" scam con-artists, Harold Camping being a recent example. I don't think that one should have a conversion experience based upon what I'm about to show you, but I think we can look at it in an adult frame of mind and say, "Hey, that's pretty cool!"
There are three references to a linen shroud in the Gospels. One is in Matthew, one in Mark, and one in Luke:
"And Joseph taking the Body, wrapped It up in a clean linen cloth." --Matthew 27:59
"And Joseph buying fine linen, and taking Him down, wrapped Him up in the fine linen, and laid Him in a sepulchre which was hewed out of a rock. And he rolled a stone to the door of the sepulchre." -- Mark 15:46"And taking Him down, he wrapped Him in fine linen, and laid Him in a sepulchre that was hewed in stone, wherein never yet any man had been laid." --Luke 23:53
If you put a decimal point between the chapters and verses and add all three of these together and then divide by three you get:27.59 + 15.46 + 23.53 = 66.5866.58 divided by 3 = 22.19Mark has only sixteen chapters and John has only 21, so those two books are out. Let's look up chapter 22 verse 19 in Matthew and Luke:"Shew Me the coin of the tribute. And they offered Him a penny. And Jesus saith to them: Whose image and inscription is this?
-- Matthew 22:19-20"And taking bread, He gave thanks, and brake; and gave to them, saying: This is My Body, which is given for you.
-- Luke 22:19
Whose image is this? + This is My Body.
Admittedly this is fudged a bit as you have to let the Matthean passage spill over into verse 20, but it does put a wry smile on one's face. Also remember that the chapter and verse notations were added centuries after the fact for ease of study. It's a coincidence, but it is still pretty nifty. And yes, I do think the Shroud of Turin is the burial cloth of Christ. Anatomically and forensically perfect photographic and X-ray negatives made by super-massive bursts of EM radiation aren't a dime a dozen. In fact, there is only one. And the radio carbon dating done in the 1970's? Yeah, they tested patch area. Facepalm. Way to go, Science.

4. Finally on the cool theme, here is Nat Cole singing Hoagy Carmichael's masterpiece, "Stardust" with images from the Hubble telescope.Now, that's cool.
2: That Packard is totally badass.
3: I had my doubts about the Shroud of Turin, but it really is looking like something miraculous.
4: For those of you who think that Fitty Cent and Justin Bieber are 'music...' you've just been schooled, bitches.
That is all.
