Question of the Week #337

Had you lived in 1900 and known that cars would cause 20 million deaths in the next century, would you have wanted to halt their development? What present technologies do you think are too dangerous to develop, given that each year cars kill 500,000 people and cigarettes take 5 million? Clearly a follow-up to last … Continue reading Question of the Week #337

Darts

You know... I used to be good at throwing darts. It was one of those things that I actually got better at the more I played and the more I played the more fun it was to play. For a while, back when I was on staff with my former church, we had a dartboard … Continue reading Darts

A Clear Sign

This blog post will consist of nothing but me complaining. I'm talking full-on First World Problems ranting. If that's not your cup of tea, I apologize.

Question of the Week #336

If a technological breakthrough could enable people to travel as quickly and cheaply across the world as they now do between adjacent cities, but at the price of 500,000 deaths a year, would you want the technology developed? Well, I guess the first question that would really need to be asked here is how does … Continue reading Question of the Week #336

A Star Wars Question

You wouldn't believe the things that keep me up at night. Anxieties about whether I got the right thing signed for work (of course I did!). Random pains in my back. Trivial thoughts about pop culture issues dealing with fictional worlds that have no bearing on what happens in real life. Last night I was … Continue reading A Star Wars Question
