  1. Dogmatic belief in bronze age myths is TF.
  2. Man.  Fred Willard and Jerry Stiller in the same week.  The world is a lot less funny.

  3. I'm reading 2 U.S. history books. One is from 1927 by Wilbur Fisk Gordy. It's an interesting perspective to read a US history book from the 1920s. The other is a Reader's Digest book called The Story of America. I started reading The Better Angels of our Nature by Steven Pinker. Still on chapter 1, but I think it's going to be a good one. On the last chapter of The First People in a New World by David J. Meltzer. This is one of the best books I've read in a while. The chapters that covered climatology and genetics were a bit over my head, but it's a fascinating look at the peopling of the Americas by one of the top experts in the field. If you're into archeology at all, I'd recommend putting it on your list.
  4. Is ten thousand smackaroos too many smackaroos to pay for a 2nd story deck (composite decking)?

      I think that's a decent deal. If you want an idea of the material costs, I've used this lumber yard that specializes in decks: https://thedecksuperstoreportal.epicoranywhere.com/products.aspx?direction=desc&searchText=&pg=0&sort=Relevance

      Just keep in mind that the labor does require some skill and knowledge. I've built a couple decks and it's a lot of work.

      @GSG 66% off is too good to pass up!!

  6. Would be funny if it wasn't a direct quote.
  7. I wouldn't exactly consider 10,000 people "extremely fringe". You could call the Westboro Baptist Church extremely fringe. That's the classic example people tend to use when talking about the fringe in religion. That's about 70 people total. 70! And let's not pretend Kenneth Copeland is reaching only 10,000 people, or anything close to that. Also let's not pretend he's the only person making a living preaching devine healing. You like to call it fringe because it's comforting for you to believe. Not because it's true. He may be a quack to you and me, but he's not articulating a fringe idea.
