I have no idea what the Skyscraper Defense Act says, but it must be good if it's supported by Spider Dan.

Speaking of MUDs, my enchanted motorcycle robot monk on Progress Quest is now level 3.

Holy shpadoinkle! If anybody had told me that there were so many nice looking women playing MUDs, (Hi Jubbie!) maybe I wouldn't have stopped playing. Actually, my level 51 mage is still around but he's no longer a citizen of Althainia and has lost his honorary Archmagus title. What's up with that? Anyways, there's always the chance that most of these pictures were just sent in by dorky guys trying to get other dorky guys to help them level.

"So far, taking Jesus to be the size of an average Nazarene man, I have eaten nine whole Jesuses plus one of Jesus legs. This is more whole Jesuses than anyone has ever eaten."

If you find yourself revisiting the images of September 11 tonight, it might also be worthwhile to revisit the only sane thing that can be said about them.

Oh for fuck's sake, I just watched a white woman on an ABC townmeeting about national security just express justification for WWII Japanese internment camps and get applauded. Now I feel the need to place some white lilies on the Bill of Rights Memorial.

Wait, so I can't rid myself of all this young adult angst until I'm 35? Ugh. Well, at least UPN feels my pain.

I dunno. Maybe God changed His mind.

Well, on the surface, the Bible passages most quoted by homophobes look pretty damning (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13), but it turns out that it's part of the same Holiness Code that tells you not to eat bacon, get a tattoo, or shave your beard. Also, it probably referred to the practice of visting non-Christian temples for their male prostitutes. The relevant sin here's idolatry, not homosexuality. And the Bible never says anything bad about lesbianism or masturbation. Enjoy.
