Into the Black

Got to watch a couple of guys slicing up the street in front of our house with giant water-cooled circular saws today. It was a fascinating spectacle, as one of them in particular kept slicing within inches of the blade-cooling hose running back to the fire hydrant. He never quite managed to hit it in spite of close calls, and I must admit, me rooting for it, just to see what happened.

we're now reaping the harvest of physical, mental and spiritual sickness that we've sown globally, particularly over the last 100 years.

So if you believe that, then you apprantly also believe that the British have paid back their national karma for the actions of the last 4-500 years.

By that standard, the entire Spanish population should drop dead any day now.

Shit -- there's pretty decent evidence to suggest that Homo sapiens were at least partially responsible for the extinction of Homo neandertalensis either through competition for resources or outright genocide (or both)..

Somebody set up us the karma!

A cute idiom for saying America is a lethargic nation. It's nothing exactly new in the history of nations.

Don't you think it's kinda peculiar that you quote Galatians, and then talk about Karma and reaping the effects of 100 years of negative influences?

perhaps Karma on a national level; past actions determine future destiny, we're now reaping the harvest of physical, mental and spiritual sickness that we've sown globally, particularly over the last 100 years.

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Simmer down. Most likely, the host realized they were getting a lot of traffic to that link and decided to stick an ad there in its place.

Yeah, that link is screwed up. Definitely not as intended. Might be some devilish fun for bugging friends with cell phones though. Not that I'm devilish, much.

Whats with the link to the advertisement, thats actually requires you to input your cell phone number ?? Is that an easy way to get lots of hits and generate ad revenue ?? Seems like thats abit misleading and potentailly dangerous (considering what someone can do with your cell #), thinking it's a legitimate link to a pic or something ?

I worked doing line construction years ago when CATV first started coming around and we used the things daily. The thing is, even if it doesn't have any water it'll work fine (the asphalt fiber blades anyhow), they just wear at a much faster rate.
