Thirteen Links to Posts That Never Were 2

Thirteen Things MInTheGap Thinks Are Interesting
But Has not Posted On
1. Destiny NortonGirl’s Body Found in Neighbor’s Basement
It’s a tragedy– a child was kidnapped, but far from it being some random person that took her, it was a neighbor, and she died shortly after capture. For five days people searched for her, only to find her next door. No matter how much we worry about the unknown, it may be the known that is the most dangerous.

2. The Terri Schaivo Injustice Will Not Go Away
The nurse that testified in favor of Terri’s Amendment back when they were trying to save Terri Schiavo from death by starvation/dehydration has had her license to practice nursing in Florida pulled because of the public stand she took.

3. We’re Getting the Insurgents
There’s continuous news from Iraq that the Insurgents are not winning– contrary to what the “drive by media” (Rush Limbaugh) want you to believe.

4. A Tragic Accident
A mother came back to pick up her baby at day care, only to realize that she had left the baby in the car all day. The baby was dead. This tragic tale shows that parents are getting too busy and need to rethink their prirorities.

5. Spiderman Outs Himself to The Press
Peter Parker decides to comply with a mandatory revealing of superhero secret identites as the comic books tackle some of the issues facing the United States in a war on terrorism. The whole concept talks to the idea of knowing who your friends are and having information.

6. Is this really 11 Million Years Old?
I find it pretty interesting every time one of these types of things are found. Scientists found an animal that they believed was extinct for 11 Million Years! It goes to show you once again that things haven’t changed over time– they were created by a wise omnipotent Creator.

7. Ken JenningsKen Jennings Has a Sense of Humor
The man who wowed everyone with his prowess at Jeapordy! and brought renewed interest to the show when they changed the rules to let a winnder keep on going wrote some things on a website in a tounge-in-cheek fashion that some said was deragatory to the show that made him famous but he said was all in fun.

8. U.S. Soldiers are not Guilty Before a Verdict
Just because an American citizens are on the battlefield does not mean they forfeit their rights to be innocent until proven guilty. However, this seems to be what the media and others want as they jump to assign blame and choose sides when not all the facts are known.

9. Does The Fact That Tou are Breast Feeding Make it ok to Display One?
The cover of Baby Talk magazine has a picture of a baby sucking on a breast– and it has many people in the U.S. up in arms. It’s certainly something we try to be private about, even when being in public, but should it be such a bad thing?

10. Women Never Lie About Rape
Vox Day addresses the idea that women never lie about rape. Point blank– women cry rape for a lot of reasons– most of which is because the public is disposed to believe them and that the public believes it’s detestable. Now, is it always true that it was rape, and not consensual? A good reason to only have physical relations with your wife.

11. Robin Williams Battles the Bottle
Robin Williams has checked himself into rehab because he’s again addicted to alcohol. Nothing ruins relationships, family, and lives like the stuff– something that should be avoided! God commands us to be filled with the spirit instead of the bottle!

12. David Copperfield Says that He’s Found the Fountain of Youth
Now available at Walgreens for $9.99 an ounce!

13. Strip Poker - Reuters PhotoKnow when to wear ’em, know when to bare ’em…
As if gambling wasn’t bad enough, what started as a gag has turned into an actual game. The UK is about to have its first official strip poker championship. The winner gets a golden fig leaf (reminiscent of Adam and Eve?). Next thing you know they’ll add a Russian Roulette segment or something just to have more sin present (since it’s taking place in a bar, after all).

Thirteen Things MInTheGap Wanted to Blog on,
But Did Not and Now it is Too Late
1. FBI Disrupts New York City Tunnel Plot – It’s just your friendly reminder that the terrorist have not gone away.

2. Born on 06-06-06 – A couple has a child on 06-06-06 at 6:06 AM and names him after a Deamon and we’re supposed to think it’s normal.

3. Senator who cried ‘Bigot’ – Maggie Gallagher talks about how Senator Kennedy frames those who disagree with Same Sex marriage as Bigots, instead of showing respect for differing opinions.

4. Heavy Rains Flood the Northeast – It seems the Northeast either has lots of rain or lots of Sun– never a happy balance.

5. Beware of Romney Care – Mitch Romney has Massachusettes forcing companies to have health care for all of its workers– watch your taxes go up!

6. Hillary Clinton, Space Cadet? – Hillary Clinton uses her dreams to highlight her ideals, but it just shows that she’s never been able to attain what she’s longed for.

7. Senators Take Position In Advance of Marriage Amendment Vote – The Senators went on record before the vote trying to find a good line to feed the people about why they were not voting for a popular amendment.

8. Showdown over judges back on Senate Agenda – It must be getting close to election time, because the senate is out to make Senator Schumer look bad to increase Republican turnout.

9. Star Wars Creator becomes storm trooper – George Lucas was made into a Storm Trooper action figure.

10. Somebody Needs to Go Directly to Jail for This – Toy Maker Hasboro is planning to drop Atlantic City from Monopoly in upcoming production.

11. Darryl Peebles – A man looks up himself in Google and is surprised to find that there’s another person who bears more similarities than just his name.

12. Thank Your.. Uh…Mother. – Mothers are more important than most want to think

13. The iPod that lets you roll with it – Music player in a Toilet Paper Dispenser?

Thirteen Things You Learn at VBS

July 27th, 2006 Viewed 2016 times
Thirteen Things MInTheGap learned at VBS
1. Boys are more scared of being kissed than girls.
2. It’s hard to get children to remember to bring their Bibles.
3. When mixing concrete, it’s hard to figure out just how much dry mix you need.
4. It’s hard to have two points to a single lesson.
5. Rack, Shack and Benny may be more popular than Shadrach, Meshack and Abendego
6. Children don’t remember Hannaiah, Misheal and Azariah quite like the other names.
7. One cookie is not enough of a snack– even if there is juice.
8. The playground may say that it’s rated for 5 years old and up, but that doesn’t stop the two year old from climbing the ladders.
9. Dads make for great lifts up to higher playground platforms.
10. Puppets are nice and all, but it’s better if they have a voice instead of just opening their mouths.
11. Don’t let the computer geek run the projector — either he forgets to change the slide or, in the process of trying to make the display work better, shuts off the screen when you’re trying to teach a new song.
12. Children like it when you put things up on the screen behind the presenter that make them laugh.
13. It’s a lot of work, but it is worth it.Links to other Thursday Thirteens!
