Indian Superman

Image
Here we see Superman with Spider Woman flying! I came across a funny, yet charming Bollywood movie, "Dariya Dil". This is also known as " Indian Superman ". It is a Bollywood rip off (they stole many of the special effects scenes directly from the Hollywood version which is illegal LOL) of the popular Christopher Reeve "Superman" film. Here 's a good review of the film on Stomp Tokyo. I would like to see the entire movie, but so far have only seen bits and pieces on YouTube. If you'd like to watch a scene of them flying and singing a nice song download this . (37 MB)

Islam needs a major reformation

Islamic terrorists do not exist in a vacuum. They get material support in myriad ways from so-called moderates. This is indisputable fact which global intelligence agencies all confirm. There are Islamic leaders with widespread support across multiple nations. That is the popular excuse to blame all actions of Jihadists on oppressive regimes and it is completely false. The radical theology is coming from the religious leaders (imam, sheik, ayatollah, mullah), the preachers fomenting hatred and violence in their mosques, the madrasah (religious schools) indoctrinating young people with a violent and apocalyptic vision of Islam which legitimizes the use of violence in a global campaign calling on all the ummah (religious faithful) to re-establish the Caliphate and subjugate all those who refuse to accept Islam. This is given tacit approval by the hundreds of millions of Muslims who every week frequent these schools and churches, who give material support to terrorists (even if it is on

  About the authors Dan Eastwood is a biostatistician at the Medical College of Wisconsin who has been playing netrek sporadically for about 3 years. Zachary Uram studied physics at Carnegie Mellon University and now works in the IT field. He's been playing netrek near continuously (only a 1 year hiatus) since 1994. He  has played in numerous clue games (bronco and hockey) and countless pickup games. Zach has played all the netrek variants: bronco (classic netrek), hockey , sturgeon , chaos and paradise . He knew Terrance Chang and played physically (on the console!) on the very first bronco server: bronco.ece.cmu.edu .

I'm a teetotaler!

No thanks! I don't like the bitter taste of alcohol. And remember, if a Christian imbibes it must be only if the following two conditions hold: One drinks in moderation (never drunk). You don't drink around a weaker brother if it will cause him to stumble.

Good News

"Good News" In the Garden Man did Fall Lost to Sin Satan cast a black pall Separated from God So holy and righteous Our folly of pride Desiring and covetous The seduction of knowledge And self-sovereignty Because of this We did flee Earth twas covered In gloom and despair Brother killed brother Without a care Mercy was shown A covenant made Keeping the law Observances were paid Man was still far From intimacy once known When we talked with God In Paradise alone Lost sheep all Empty and incomplete Scripture foretold The Messiah we could meet He came because of love On a cold autumn night Straw for bedding As a star kept light This was the One Who would set us free The Son of God Incarnate deity Christ alone could do What we could not To pay the heavy price Which sin hath wrought There is a balance Which comes due For every sin And the goodness we eschew Filthy are we In God's holy sight But Jesus would d

Terrible Parenting

My reaction to this arrogant, narcissistic, superficial piece in the WSJ by Amy Chua, "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior" . Amy Chua you are a very poor journalist and a failure as a mother in my view. The article is ridiculously biased and ones-sided as it portrays the stern Chinese parenting as GOOD and the Western parenting as BAD. The author needs a reality check on leaving personal/cultural biases at the door. What you get from this is "Chinese mothers awesome! Western mothers need to catch up." I would much rather have a child that was not as successful by external measures if they were a loving complete sensitive person. This is the vile materialist philosophy applied to parenting. It really upset me to see what you've done to your kids. Your behavior was infantile and was outright child abuse! Sadly Amy has bought into the most superficial sort of parenting, with external measures as the SOLE criteria for success. This sort of parenting is mo

Duel at Dawn II

swords raised senses heightened tempered minds command cold steel glimmering in dawn's light sharpened by intention bushido the warrior's code restricts and defines a final test a struggle for honor what is lost in winning what is won in losing every move calculated a parry for a thrust a counter for each form this deadly calculus plays out all the training dedication and sacrifice reduced, refined to one last move now it comes the air sings as the blades dance to a harmony only two can hear precision coupled with intensity reality drops away only dazzling swordplay suspended in time a lone cherry blossom falls as the final stroke connects blood sprays soaring into the sky release the samurai's soul not broken transformed a beautiful match! -- Zachary Uram, (c) 2011
