Ken Ham: NASA Is Pointless Because Aliens Are Going to Hell Anyway -

Love the logic that says aliens inherited Adam’s sin, but not his redemption, because they’re not his descendents.

Lt. Col. David Couvillon was tasked with governing the Wasit Province of Iraq, and the learning curve was steep.
8 Things I Learned as an American Ruling an Iraqi Province

#8. The Job of “Governor” Comes With Precisely Zero Training
"We mobilized in February of 2003 and [were] assigned to Task Force Tarawa. I organized our rolling stock into a convoy to a place called Al-Kut. I got off the first airplane and went looking for General Natonski. He said, ‘Col. Couvillon, I’m glad you’re here.’ I knew something was wrong because he pronounced my name right. ‘You’re the governor now.’"
…So I asked, ‘What does that mean?’
“‘You’re the governor; anything that happens is your responsibility.’”
“‘I get that, but what do I do?’
“‘Anything that happens, you’re responsible for.’ That was the extent of my training.”

Jack White Playing the ‘Pulp Fiction’ Opening Credits Song

adamtodbrown:

Jack White played Dick Dale’s “Misirlou” at a show in Louisville this weekend. That’s the song that plays over the opening credits of ‘Pulp Fiction’ if the name isn’t familiar. It’s good times. You should watch it. Click here to skip directly to the ‘Pulp Fiction’ song.
