Links and a video

From Alcoholics Anonymous to Evangelicals Anonymous!

If you can understand German, then do give this a listen to (together with the other 5 in the series). It is one of the funniest things I've heard in a long time. 'Panzer' is the Radio joker who calls random people up and asks for stupid things. But Szabo, his victim, is pure genius!

Ali G talks science with a creationst and a panel of scientists.

Finally, a few great music tracks on youtube. For those of you stuffy theologians who only listen to Mozart and all that primitive nonsense, grow up and discover the delight of chill/ambient. For example:

Telepopmusik - Breathe

Bliss - Dunia

Ecstasy by ATB

And the utterly delightful Bent - Swollen. This one ought to cure you ‘only Classical’ sorts. If Barth were still alive, he wouldn't be as enamoured with Mozart as he was. Balthasar probably would, but not Barth. He'd be a fan of internet radio chill and ambient stations.

OK, my video is hardly ground breaking stuff, but a few days ago we had a thunder storm the likes of which I've never before seen. After a while it started to hail, and some of the stones were honestly as big as Table Tennis balls. I wish I'd had the presence of mind to make a video of the hail while it was falling, but I was too fascinated by the sound the hail was making on our windows and car to think about that. I made this video shortly after the storm finished. In it I show how the hail punctured a big hole though our mosquito net. I couldn't believe it!

Well I thought it was interesting!

By the way, that Creationist "scientist" on da Ali G show was sent to prison because of tax evasion. I met him once and he showed me how to make a very good paper airplane.

Some years ago we had also some real big hailstones. See at the bottom for a picture. I suppose they where equal in size as yours.

Ali G hit the nail on the head - the creation scientist leaves crap everywhere!

Hi "Recovering",

Brandon, that was a bizarre comment to read! Is he still in prison?

Hi JP, that hail is unbelievable! Yours was bigger!

Anon, I'm grinning but I suppose I shouldn't! Thanks for the laugh!

The creationist on the Ali G. show vid is one who challenged me to a debate in Atlanta, Georgia years ago. I researched his most outrageous unsubstantied young-earth claims and blasted him on each one in my intro along with slides. His son looked downtrodden. Today that same creationist, "Dr. Dino" Kent Hovind, is in prison for tax evasion, starting numerous small bank accounts with less than $5 thou to try and stay off the IRS radar screen, and for not applying for permits before building his dinosaur-land adventure park in Florida. Kent was worth at least a million or more, having sold his products in numerous languages and lectured round the world.
