Does Dwayne Johnson in the Hercules trailers look just like Kevin Sorbo, or is it my imagination?
Because then it might not suck.
What would Jesus not do?
Things Jesus would do:
- Flip tables
- Turn water into fine wine to save your wedding party
- Tell the weather outside to STOP
- Curse trees for producing shitty fruit
- Bring people back from the dead
- Go fishing
- Give you food
- Whatever the hell he wants to on the Sabbath
- Make furniture
- Walk across the ocean because you need to stop
This…is the best
As Stalkingstalkerthatstalks said: Canon Jesus is better than fanon Jesus.
Canon Jesus is better than fanon Jesus.
CAN I GET THAT ON A TSHIRT
Fanon Jesus is a white guy who hugs lambs
Canon Jesus is a sassy middle eastern guy who hung out with prostitudes and spread peace and acceptance of everyone
Prostitudes. Prostitutes with attitude.
What you get when you watch this video:
- The catchiness of Blurred Lines while maintaining your self-respect
- An education!
I love this video because
a) it takes the catchy tune of a disgrace of a song and turns it into something glorious
b) includes the line “Get out of the gene pool” and any song with that line deserves everything
we should make this more popular than blurred lines
I actually still find it annoying (it’s the women “woo”ing in the background that I hate) but at least the lyrics are good.

via bookporn:Threats and Warnings on BookplatesIt was traditional, particularly before the invention of the printing press when books were all hand written manuscripts, to letter a curse into the book to prevent theft. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have worked very well, as the books also had to be chained into place. Even chains had limited effect. Witness the many ancient libraries where there are still chains in place… but no books.Here are a few examples:Thys boke is one
And God’s curse another;
They that take the one
God geve them the other.
He who steals this book
may he die the death
may he be frizzled in a pan…
This present book legible in scripture
Here in this place thus tacched with a cheyn
Purposed of entent for to endure
And here perpetuelli stylle to remeyne
Fro eyre to eyre wherfore appone peyn
Of cryst is curs of faders and of moderes
Non of hem hens atempt it to dereyne
Whille ani leef may goodeli hange with oder.
Steal not this Book my honest Friend
For fear the Galows should be your hend,
And when you die the Lord will say
And wares the Book you stole away?A variation on the same theme:Steal not this book, my worthy friend
For fear the gallows will be your end;
Up the ladder, and down the rope,
There you’ll hang until you choke;
Then I’ll come along and say -
"Where’s that book you stole away?"From the Monastery of San Pedro, Barcelona, a blanket curse for the entire library…(I really wish this one existed, but unfortunately, it appears that it is apocryphal — there is no monastery in San Pedro. It’s so nasty though that I include it anyway.)For him that Stealeth a Book from this Library,
Let it change into a Serpent in his hand & rend him.
Let him be struck with Palsy, & all his Members blasted.
Let him languish in Pain crying aloud for Mercy,
Let there be no Surcease to his Agony till he sink to Dissolution.
Let Bookworms gnaw his Entrails in token of the Worm that dieth not,
When at last he goeth to his final Punishment,
Let the flames of hell consume him for ever & aye.”

I completely disagree.
Me watching a movie: this would be better if it had less heterosexuals
I’m thinking that through about 99% of my waking life.
If I did suddenly find passages that couldn’t be there in my house, however, I would proceed the way I always did in Shadowrun when our GM dumped portals to something or other on us. I would get a live mouse on a string, and stick it through the portal. Then I would bring it back. Mouse still alive? Excellent! Okay, I’m sticking my hand in there. My left hand. Hand doesn’t get chopped off? Great, let’s go for the face. Actually, let’s go for Bob’s face. Bob! Stick your face in here…etc, etc. Other players were often impatient with my insistence on this sort of precaution, but if the portal had ever led to a volcano, who’d be sorry then?
