Seriously?

The look on Glenn's face is priceless.

I wonder what he is thinking...

Billions of years from now, the universe as we know it will cease to exist...

But, don't fret, there are some ways out...

   

io9: Will Our Descendants Survive the Destruction of the Universe?



This ought to count as either the most optimistic or the most sardonic entry I have ever posted.

I just can't decide which.

Whosoever purports to carry oneself like an angel, behaves like a beast





The title is a maxim from Blaise Pascal's "Pensées".

The complete quote is "L'homme n'est ni ange ni bête et le malheur veut que qui veut faire l'ange fait la bête" (Man is neither an angel nor a beast, and the mishap is that whosoever purports to carry oneself like an angel, behaves like a beast).

I know...

Things have not changed all that much ever since the Crusades, have they?



Except for the shape of the cross on our flag...



And the might of our weapons...

Joy to the World

Move over Jesus…



There is a new player in town…

Her name is Joy Mangano and she sold 18,000 mops in 20 minutes!!!

Now, let me ask you, how is that for a miracle?



I just can't wait to see the movie.



Coming to a theatre near you, on December 25th, 2015, just in time for Christmas.

I kid David O. Russell and Ingenious Designs, LLC.

Still, I think I might just save my money this time around, and go see Krampus, instead.

Kind of suits my mood...

A matter of perspective

I wouldn't know, sir...



We only come here for the drinks.

Contradictio In Terminis?

-
The gentleman from Vermont is absolutely right:



I couldn't agree more. And allow me to add, by the same token, and for good measure, that I am sick and tired of Hillary Clinton too—just on general principles.

I know what you are gonna say...

Principles?

What principles?





My point exactly!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Contradictio in terminis (Latin for contradiction in terms) refers to a combination of words whose meanings are in conflict with one another. Examples are "independent colony", "square circle", and a "principled politician".

Today we wear faces

-


They call it the Third Pole:



The Dalai Lama said on Tuesday that two-thirds of the glaciers in their mountain homeland may disappear by 2050 because of climate change and demanded a stake in the coming international climate talks at the twenty-first session of the Conference of Parties (COP21) to be held in Paris later this year.



I am holding my breath.

How is the issue affecting us here at home?

Does Hillary Clinton have a plan?

Does Bernie Sanders?



No, I mean seriously, now...

Does anyone in America or in the rest of the world?

Anyone on Earth or in Heaven?



I don't know, perhaps the world deserves Donald Trump for POTUS.



After all, isn't he the true face of mankind?
