Random Sites

Without Word Spy we’d never know the meaning of new “words” like adorkable or carcooning. I can’t believe I haven’t found this site before (it has been around since 2001!). I guess I’m just 404.

Says-It.com explains a lot of the really “surprising” things encountered on the net. I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen the same church sign on several websites – each with different “amazing” sayings – each one purporting to be real – probably created here.

Links on a Lazy Day

I’ve been storing up some more interesting links for a lazy afternoon. After a several days of early mornings and late nights, it is time for that lazy afternoon.

Laugh. I’ve started to enjoy this site from the wacky folks behind Shoebox cards. I think I like their newsdroppings better than the mainstream press. I can’t vouch for the “safety” of all the links, but girls might enjoy this one.

Helpful. Theological Word of the Day might be helpful in learning or reviewing some of the deep theological concepts in bite-size chunks. Maybe I’ll be able to remember the difference between Infralapsarianism and Supralapsarianism.

Dim-witted. I bet the bank would have accepted it if was millions instead.

Lists. Stuff Christians Like. Prodigal Jon “wants to be honest and upfront and hopefully a little funny about the issues the church and Christians struggle with sometimes. I want to say, “Whoa, whoa, please don’t judge me or God by Christian radio.” I want to admit the times we’ve dropped the ball on issues or ideas that people called to love their neighbor should have knocked out of the park. I want to blow up misconceptions and preconceptions about what it means to be a Christian.” Through today he’s up to #231. Drinking Coffee in Church. I found #198 to be scientific. #35 explains much of my gray hair. I’ll bet that you’ve heard God’s favorite word noted in #98.

Men … Colds … Dial 999

Thabiti also pointed to this insightful video on men and sickness. I’m sure he was drawn to it out of his concern that for his fellow-man in this season of rampant sickness. I wonder … is there sickness in the Grand Cayman?

These things might be really fun … absolutely worthless, but fun.
