Only 350/400? Grrr...

Language Scholar
You scored a 350 out of 400 on language knowledge.
Outstanding! You've scored higher than even most Anthropology students would. You are probably a Linguistics or Anthropology Professor yourself (or at least a Grad student). You may even speak several languages and are possibly working on a new one. If not, then you just have an endless drive to learn about the different cultures of our world. Regardless, you are one of the gems of any society, always promoting a deeper understanding amongst all people. Unless you cheated of course.

Hebrews 4:15

One of the fundamental ideas in the Incarnation is that Jesus was "like us in all things but sin." Which usually gets used to talk about how he got sad and mad and whatever, or how he used that bathroom and thought about naked folks, which is all true. But lately I've been thinking more about how it also means that he was *wrong* about stuff. It's not possible to be human and not get stuff wrong. Even *big* stuff. It makes me want to go and look closer at Jesus' pre-crucifixion and post-resurrection pronouncements. It also makes me worried that I'm stuck with another research interest: revelation, error, providence, and (of course) ecclesiology. Sigh.

From a variety of places, lo, a meme:

Go to this page and have it keep generating quotes for you until you find five that are personally meaningful to you in some way. I came across more than I expected--I really am not fond of quotes as a genre. Here are five in particular out of that more...

1. I don't deserve this award, but I have arthritis and I don't deserve that either. – Jack Benny

2. One man alone can be pretty dumb sometimes, but for real bona fide stupidity, there ain't nothin' can beat teamwork. – Edward Abbey

3. No one ever told me that grief felt so much like fear. – C.S. Lewis

4. I'm just trying to look at something without blinking. – Toni Morrison

5. America's greatest strength, and its greatest weakness, is our belief in second chances, our belief that we can always start over, that things can be made better. – Anthony Walton

I love trains!

Got at b3co.com!

There's a couple there I'm not sure of. Did I actually use the metro in Stockholm? Hmm. But I'm pretty confident about most of them.

Cynicism, and not.

Being not a cynical person, sometimes I forget that it's not automatically clear that when I say that I am speaking cynically, it means that I'm being both speculative and disapproving about the matter in question.

(Also, I'm not sure how it is that I'm not a cynical person, given that I have such a grim view of human nature. Maybe it's that, since I don't attach undue nobility to the many good things people do do, I don't get disillusioned by the many bad things. Disappointed, yes. Horrified, yes. Disillusioned, no.)

We have some furniture in our rented house, now that the one of our pods we wanted delivered has finally gotten here after a week and a half delay. I'm sitting in a chair! Oh, the decadence.
