|11:42 am - Things I shouldn't talk about|
I keep telling myself that I won't talk about this, and I was doing a tolerable job. I won't name names, I think we all will recognize what I'm saying once I get into it. The Bible commentaries ask a question about a verse in Exodus. The verse says that the Egyptians were punished along with their slaves and their households, and the commentaries ask why the slaves? Why not just the masters? The slaves never had the option to refuse to abuse the Hebrew slaves, why should they punished?
And the commentaries answer, "because they enjoyed it." They weren't just following orders, they were reveling in them. Sir Richard Burton (the explorer type) said that the desire of a slave is not to be free, but to have his own slave. Even if we believed carrying out inhumane orders was acceptable, (which I don't), it is certainly unacceptable to delight in their execution. And that's why the response must be swift and severe. In a time of war, brutality may be necessary, even desirable, but the joy in other's suffering can't be permitted to gain accendency in the heart or mind. I see the joy in them, and I find it utterly repulsive.

|02:14 pm - A collection of (spam) oddities|
So I wasn't going to buy anything, but Meranda talked me into getting a Spam shirt for myself when I bought hoppie a replacement 2001 A Spam Odyssey. I got the Statue of Spamity.
( I was originally writing a tangent, but it turned into a list that guys probably don't want to read...Collapse )
And on the subject of "Your Kung Fu is best." which alert readers will recognize as a quote from The X-Files. Hoppie correctly identified Mr. Murray as Kwai Chang Caine's son Peter from Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Chris Potter is the name of the actor. And may I just say, that's he's still a hottie. I was wondering about the possiblilty of turning the Calvin into another Frank Longbottom pb. Char, what do you think?

QAMgrm: You're trying to be funny over here.
Me: I think I'm succeeding.
QAMgmr: I cannot say you're funny.
Me: But you can't say I'm not.
QAMgmr: I can never win an argument with you documentation people. You have good chocolate.
Me: Good chocolate settles many an argument.
