-sigh- I lead a small group for senior high kids at church on Wednesday nights. The topic of discussion was obvious. Below are some quotes [well, paraphrases], without attribution, followed by my more reasonable thoughts today. This is as much for me as it is you; I pretty well lost control of that group last night. [They’re very talkative and prone to getting sidetracked in the first place, but man, it was … spastic last night.]

I decided to look up a bunch of crazy Osama bin Laden-related domains on BetterWhois.com. Here’s one that I’m really shocked that I even viewed: http://www.binladenmustdie.com/.
If you go check the records, you find out that this was registered yesterday at around 2:30 EDT. What a bunch of crazies–both those who built the site and those who’re hitting it like madmen.
I’m all for prosecuting Osama to the fullest extent of a Fuel-Air Explosive [FAE], but really, people.
I don’t know that I’d link to craziness like this normally, but some small part of me says, “History needs to know about the stupid people that do stuff like this.” If you want to fire this guy an email or an angry phone call, you can start looking here. Yeesh.
I was in shock for about an hour this morning. Seeing a plane just auger straight into 2WTC was too much. “You heard about this load of s**t?!” is all I could say when I called PJ on the phone.

Some of you who read IJSM are a.b.t-c people. I bring you this from Daniel–in short, he’s okay, and he just got an email from his wife that she’s okay, too.

Well, apparently Todd’s had enough of being a poor schmuck and wants to work for a living. Once the Army Corps of Engineers figures out where to put him, he’ll be working on our tax dollar yet again. Of course, as he’s full-time, this takes financial stress away from Todd. That’s a good thing. Dude stresses out about money. =)
Okay, it’s official: people find this site for the weirdest reasons. I’ll do my best to list ’em below…

I got a funny email message this morning, and I replied to it innocently enough, just to see if I was being poked [not really scammed, because I wasn’t going into it in any detail]. Here’s the details; those of you who hold domains may want to note this…

Hrm. I’m now playing with Mozilla 0.9.3. I’m really liking how it loads and does stuff. If you have a high-RAM machine, I suggest giving it a shot. Bocephus hated it, but Rufus may never use that blasted IE if my satisfaction level stays this high…
Well, I’m just nine days away from moving to the new apartment now. The phone switch is taken care of: no DSL at the new apartment. =( However, my cable company serves the Monte Sano area with cable modem access, so I do still have a shot at high-speed. Going back to dialup now would just suck.
Because of this, I cannot promise a plethora of IJSM lectures over the next two weeks or so. I’ll fit them in, but my time for class prep is being sucked up at home by trashing and packing and at work by, well, work. So we’ll see.
Of course, now that I post this, I bet I’ll have five entries today.
