on Idiots of the Year Videos - Painful and Hysterical

April 11th 2011 02:01
Oh, who needs critical thinking and common sense? Certainly not this lot. One hates to laugh at the misfortune of others, but some of these people do make not doing so very difficult. Love your intro - "videos that would make the Jackass guys a little squeamish". Very true!

Ha, very funny indeed! It's like the "Monty Python" crew moved over to marketing and promo. I do enjoy British humor (mostly).

on The Words of Jesus on the Cross

April 7th 2011 06:53
Wonderful post, important message. You are quite right to point out that Jesus was NOT expressing doubt (or regret at having willingly gone to the cross) when, at the height of His agony, He cried out "My God, My God, why has thou forsaken me?" So why did He say these words? Jesus' work on the cross was to take upon His holy, innocent and blameless person all the sins of the world - past, present and future - and at that instant His Father, the Lord God, had to turn away from Jesus, albeit only for a moment, because a righteous and holy God must turn away from sin. From before the beginning of the world Jesus was one with the Father, just as He was during His incarnation on this earth, and that brief moment of separation from God while on the cross must have been one of excruciating agony for Him. That pain of separation prompted Jesus to ask what is essentially a rhetorical question, and in doing so also to declare to mankind the pain of momentary separation from God which He endured while paying our sin wages and redeeming us to God by His blood. Anyway, that is what I believe. One more important point; Jesus was not killed but willingly surrendered His life on the cross (remember Pilots amazement upon being told that Jesus died hours before victims of crucifixion normally did). He surrendered His Spirit to the Father which also fulfilled another prophesy that none of his bones would be broken (normally the Romans would break the legs of crucifixion victims to hasten their deaths as this ultimately resulted in suffocation) but when the Roman soldier approached Jesus to break His legs he found that Jesus was already dead. Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. Thank you, Yashua Ha Mashia, Jesus the Christ, for shedding your precious blood to redeem us unworthy sinners to the Lord God Yahweh.

on Bucket List Check: Jump out of a Plane with Best Mate

March 31st 2011 02:23
Well I suppose that's one way to spend a weekend, that or washing out your socks. Kidding of course, it looked amazing! If you jump every ten years will that make it decadent? Sorry, that is possibly the very worst pun ever conceived. I hope your celebration later that evening was proportional to the event. Thanks for sharing. Loved hearing your accent BTW.

Jason, any news?

Thanks for sharing this. The weekend you were basking in the warm Australian sun I was huddled next to the fireplace thanks to unusually cold weather in Dallas (25 hideous degrees Fahrenheit and snow on the ground). It’s been cold all week and just reading this made me feel warmer, not only because of your weather and amazing photos but hearing about your experiences with the children. Your certainly know how to start off a year! On an aside, I didn’t realize you use English miles and always assumed you are metric. Down with the metric system! [yellow smiley face here - don't know how to insert one] You’re fortunate to live near such a magnificent coastline…but I keep expecting to see a Wild Thing walk by, or Max arriving in his sailboat. If you see Alexander give him a hug for me! I also never had children and understand your state of mind.

It's certainly not a look I care for, but then again I tend to dislike the ultra-casual attire which is now so prevalent in western countries (and Australia, New Zealand, etc. the countries with "western" culture). However, to each his own and if a guy has the body and bravado to pull it off who am I to criticize? As for me, I wish we all still dressed as they did in the 1940's and 50's. Ever look at photos from that time? Everyone looks so neat, well groomed and classy. Alas, I was born too late!

on I Dare You to Not Laugh at Ladder Goat

December 14th 2010 03:53
Like this gamer we’ve all no doubt come across that one particular thing that, while mildly amusing to others (such as a levitating goat awkwardly scaling a ladder) sets us on an unexpected and altogether unstoppable spell of hysterical laughter. Sadly, most of us don’t have the chance to capture the experience on video.
