Jumbled thoughts on a Friday night...

...accumulated from a few days past.

Well, the previous busyness has ended, but now a new kind of busyness is upon us. It is life (and it feels even busier than the previous busy). Not enough hours in day... at least for now.

Gas was in the 120s for awhile, then saw it for 117.9 on Wednesday night, but then saw it today for 115.9¢/litre. Our Canadian dollar was also down to 82¢ (against the US dollar) but ended at 87, or something like that. Watching arbitrary numerical figures rise and fall is still fascinating to me, but still pointless and meaningless (in light of eternity of course).

Why is James 3: 9-10 so difficult to follow and remember?

Canucks won their season opener! Sigh... have to learn all the new guys names and numbers... and they're such a distraction when I have homework to do.

It's pretty cold now. Brrrr. I can see my breath when I exhale outside.

Is Chris Tomlin sort of like the new Michael W. Smith, except newer and improved?

Depravity...everywhere...

A big thank you to Virgin Mobile Canada in helping me hate the the mobile phone industry in Canada a little bit more, and perhaps them too... We are all big fat suckers. They playin' us like snake on a classic Nokia.

I wonder who would win in a fight, warriors/soldiers/brawlers/fighters now VS warriors/soldiers/brawlers/fighters in ancient times (or maybe not so ancient too). On one hand, we have more science and arguably practical knowledge of the human body now, but then, on the other hand, in years gone past, would those fighters have had more battle experience (assuming people fought more?). I wonder who'd be more brutal/ruthless... I reason in my head that that could be an even tie.

ha, i can get gas for 5 cents cheaper because i have PetroPoints!

so... question: is the recent "cheaper" gas prices a result of the failing economy all over the world?

hmm yea i don't like the canadian mobile phone industry. i can't seem to get a new phone without signing up for another contract

we all know the answer to that question tim, a question similar to this one:

titans versus tic-tanks. who won?

And oh, if its hand to hand combat we lose. But military doctrine nowadays are preemptive and to come within a kilometer of each other is a tactical failure.

Yes i should be sleeping.
