|Thirteen Things MInTheGap Thinks Are Interesting
But Has not Posted On1. Girl’s Body Found in Neighbor’s Basement
It’s a tragedy– a child was kidnapped, but far from it being some random person that took her, it was a neighbor, and she died shortly after capture. For five days people searched for her, only to find her next door. No matter how much we worry about the unknown, it may be the known that is the most dangerous.
2. The Terri Schaivo Injustice Will Not Go Away
The nurse that testified in favor of Terri’s Amendment back when they were trying to save Terri Schiavo from death by starvation/dehydration has had her license to practice nursing in Florida pulled because of the public stand she took.
3. We’re Getting the Insurgents
There’s continuous news from Iraq that the Insurgents are not winning– contrary to what the “drive by media” (Rush Limbaugh) want you to believe.
4. A Tragic Accident
A mother came back to pick up her baby at day care, only to realize that she had left the baby in the car all day. The baby was dead. This tragic tale shows that parents are getting too busy and need to rethink their prirorities.
5. Spiderman Outs Himself to The Press
Peter Parker decides to comply with a mandatory revealing of superhero secret identites as the comic books tackle some of the issues facing the United States in a war on terrorism. The whole concept talks to the idea of knowing who your friends are and having information.
6. Is this really 11 Million Years Old?
I find it pretty interesting every time one of these types of things are found. Scientists found an animal that they believed was extinct for 11 Million Years! It goes to show you once again that things haven’t changed over time– they were created by a wise omnipotent Creator.
7. Ken Jennings Has a Sense of Humor
The man who wowed everyone with his prowess at Jeapordy! and brought renewed interest to the show when they changed the rules to let a winnder keep on going wrote some things on a website in a tounge-in-cheek fashion that some said was deragatory to the show that made him famous but he said was all in fun.
8. U.S. Soldiers are not Guilty Before a Verdict
Just because an American citizens are on the battlefield does not mean they forfeit their rights to be innocent until proven guilty. However, this seems to be what the media and others want as they jump to assign blame and choose sides when not all the facts are known.
9. Does The Fact That Tou are Breast Feeding Make it ok to Display One?
The cover of Baby Talk magazine has a picture of a baby sucking on a breast– and it has many people in the U.S. up in arms. It’s certainly something we try to be private about, even when being in public, but should it be such a bad thing?
10. Women Never Lie About Rape
Vox Day addresses the idea that women never lie about rape. Point blank– women cry rape for a lot of reasons– most of which is because the public is disposed to believe them and that the public believes it’s detestable. Now, is it always true that it was rape, and not consensual? A good reason to only have physical relations with your wife.
11. Robin Williams Battles the Bottle
Robin Williams has checked himself into rehab because he’s again addicted to alcohol. Nothing ruins relationships, family, and lives like the stuff– something that should be avoided! God commands us to be filled with the spirit instead of the bottle!
12. David Copperfield Says that He’s Found the Fountain of Youth
Now available at Walgreens for $9.99 an ounce!
13. Know when to wear ’em, know when to bare ’em…
As if gambling wasn’t bad enough, what started as a gag has turned into an actual game. The UK is about to have its first official strip poker championship. The winner gets a golden fig leaf (reminiscent of Adam and Eve?). Next thing you know they’ll add a Russian Roulette segment or something just to have more sin present (since it’s taking place in a bar, after all).
