    From now on, whenever I see a local band or musical performance, I will be fighting the urge to congratulate them with “YOU CAN MUSIC!”

    Does this mean that he may be a little bit congenitally braindamaged from oxygen depravation at birth?

  3. Mary says:

    I think his mom may be the one who’s brain-damaged. I mean, I was a home birth myself–but WOW.

      Nah. Not brain damage. What you’re seeing there is the result of belief in a worldview. The Truth According to Jake.

      The world’s societal structure is going to break down, and whoever’s left has to be knowledgeable enough, ruthless survivor types. That’s how it is. As Stephen King uses the colloquism, “Root hog or die.”

      Heck, the events in our world give strong indications to Christians that the end may come soon, and many are preparing for conflict. And Muslim fundamentalists, when they’re not killing themselves and 15 people around them, are gearing up to initiate the events for THEIR Messiah (the 12th Imam) to come on the scene. (Don’t you find it interesting that God chooses the time for His intervention, but in the Muslim world, Allah is committed to react to certain events, even to the point of being pushed into action by His followers?

      Makes you wonder what sort of deity the Muslims follow…
