While I was surfing around the Short wave radio bands, I keep finding that US based stations fall into 2 main categories. The first category is the nut job Radio evangelicalisms who think that they know when the rapture will be. And the second category nut job paranoid stuff. I am not saying all Short[…]

Pastor Stiegemeyer, a pastor here in Pittsburgh (LCMS) found an article about Frogs exploding. Exploding frogs, I wonder if we could use that on our war on terrorism.

Backup DNA

I found this post on Backup DNA on another blog. Would it not be cool if humans did have this same backup DNA built in. If humans did, maybe we could find a way to cause the backup to be brought forth. This probably would have to be done very early in a womans pregnancy.[…]
