I was also glad that Mr. Hrab answered my about important dates in christian history. Although I felt like my question was slightly misunderstood. I was well aware of the christian church co-opting significant pagan dates/festivals to fit their religious worldview. I was more wondering why, if people believed a man named Jesus was born, was crucified, then came back from the dead, did they not feel it was important to record the date of these events? BTW, I liked the 1st shorter answer better.
Mangalors: Stupid, brutish, warrior aliens from The Fifth Element. :)
I thought Mr. Sparkle was made in the forests of Hokkaido, renowned for it's countless soap factories.
"Speaking of portal, I gotta go do something."
That's a dangerous comment around gaming geeks. Surely just coincidence...
Regarding Easter being the first Sunday after the first full Moon after the equinox: that's actually *because* of a calendar. The Hebrews used (and still use) a lunar calendar, so Passover starts on the 15th day of the month of Nisan (if I'm remembering correctly -- I'm not Jewish and not particularly well versed in the topic).
The Stones' "Steel Wheels" tour got ridiculed as "The Geriatric Tour" -- and it was 22 years ago. If they can last five more years, their post-Steel-Wheels career will have been longer than pre-SW.
It's amazing what you can do with preservatives these days.
I am sooooo happy that you got that letter and answered about pseudoscientific shows. I just finished the series "The Dead Zone" a few weeks ago, and was feeling a bit guilty about how much I enjoyed it. :)
That being said: Numb3ers?!?!?!?!? What?!?!?!?!?!
yep! Mangalores were those aliens from the Fifth Element!
Geo gets the Gilliam treatment! It looks good on you. Or should it be you look good in it? Whatever... love love love the video.
