I haven’t been doing as much blogging lately, and I haven’t been stockpiling as much funny material for Fridays either. But I found a couple of things that make me chuckle anyway so I am throwing them out there this week. In honor of the fact that the winter up here in North Dakota has been the mildest by far of the 5 total that we have experienced in this part of the country, I present you this story that finally (not really, but one can dream) nails shut the coffin on the “global warming hysteria.” Never mind that they took to calling it “climate change” a few years back just so they could play this kind of stuff as well. We are now potentially headed for a mini ice age, just like we were in the 70’s. I assume the credit for placing these images side by side should go to the website referenced in the watermark although I saw them elsewhere. Things like this amuse me. If you want to debate the “science” that asserts that man has a profound impact on the climate and has either made the planet warmer or colder at some point in the past, you are simply going to add to the humor. You are welcome to comment, but don’t expect me to take it seriously.
In other amusements, I decided to check up on my old standby – youtube for some fun stuff. The Lutheran satire channel has uploaded several funny videos since I last ran one, but this one on creeds was particularly good in my view.
Since the most popular post on this blog still hasn’t managed to answer the question of what translation Joel Osteen uses (Can anyone tell from looking at his Bible in the video perhaps? Seriously, in two years time not one commenter has been able to cite a single translation that says what he said and it isn’t like that post hasn’t spawned a lot of traffic from others looking for the same info. If any of Joel’s churchgoers do stop by here, please ask him for us. We would simply like to know.), I figured I would throw out a bone in passing about that odd little creed that he uses as well. I imagine most of the people who say it every week have no conception of it as a creed. Maybe this can be a fun learning experience.
Oh, and since yesterday was Groundhog Day, I thought I would bookend the post by posting something I saw on twitter yesterday from another North Dakota resident:
We finally have enough snow on the ground that it looks like it is early December or something. Not complaining about it myself so much either, but all of this thawing and refreezing stuff is not a lot of fun. Have a great weekend.
