Psalms and Hymns

Today we got introduced to some new Hymns which look pretty cool and remind me of the type they use in the Reformed Presbyterian Church only I think we will use instruments.
I also have been notified of a website for the new Psalms (mostly thanks to my Uncle Bill Helder) and stumbled across a website that contains sheet music for the current Psalms. That last site isn't much use for me but I just thought it would be good to have these links archived on my blog.

Animals are NOT People!

While surfing the net I came across this article (thank you Google News) about some animal activists in Austria trying to get the courts to say that some chimpanzee is a person. I should have seen this coming. While living in our apartment building there were several people (young and old) who treated their pets like spoiled children. It was disgusting really. But this seems to be taking that attitude to a whole new level. It reminds me of the Walkathon for dogs which was held about a month ago in Ottawa. It raised an outrageous amount of money which was on par with some many other charity events raise for something like sick kids. People are nuts.

A New Type of War

I always wondered if and when it would happen. It seems like a sci-fi movie or book but this article shows that it could and did happen.
It is fascinating that there is almost no good, organized way to combat an organized attack from hackers. I mean they shut down a whole country. That is amazing and scary.

Killacycle

You know the whole environmentalism thing has gone too far when they start doing this kind of thing.
We can learn several things from this:
1. Wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle (especially fast ones)
2. Only professionals should attempt burnouts (not tech geeks trying to impress other tech geeks)
3. Gas is overrated.
4. Calling your motorbike the 'Killacycle' is probably not a good way to market it. (Especially if it kills you while you are trying to market it)
5. People (read americans) are idiots.
6. Don't let some random blond model girl tell you where and how to do a burnout.

But as idiotic as this thing is, I still have to admit that I am impressed. Its like a having a wind-up car as a kid. In reality though it doesn't really make sense because it has way to much useless power. Its like an american muscle car.
The other thing is I have never really understood the concept of saving energy by using electricity because thats energy too. It makes you wonder what ever happened to that Steorn perpetual energy machine.....

oh it was nothing. big surprise.
