hummingwolf: (My world is askew!)
[Poll #1743192]

Finally, a note from MegaHAL:

Whence cometh such tender rapture?--
my head on his musical wing,
and the priest all shaven and shorn
that long, quiet life,
always like petals falling, falling,
claws a grave for me:

i whirled through transfigurations up and moving hosts
before partly because of the
rush of water.

may he become a grain of sand?

[ profile] supergee has done us all a great service by alerting us to the latest blasphemy from AOL. You see, in a new marketing campaign, AOL has the nerve to repeatedly use the phrase "I AM"--repeatedly, I say!--which, as we all know, is one of the most common phrases in the English language, you twits "the English translation of YaHWeH, the self-proclaimed name of God."
"You must immediately change the name of your program," he [Ian Millar] told Jonathan Miller, the chief executive officer of America Online, and John Buckley, corporate communications officer for the company, in a pointed letter. I can assure you that you will lose business over this marketing tactic from people who worship the Almighty. But worse, you have offended Him by your actions; whether they are deliberate or ignorant. To treat as common the name of God is wicked...."

Yes, I can see that treating the most common verb in the English language as common is an outrage to all right-thinking people.


I am a Christian. I am not stupid. I am sick of people trying to convince us all that the one way to live a godly life involves turning off one's brain. That said, I am giving you a poll:

Out of the loop.

After two months of exceedingly limited Internet access, I'm very much out of the loop. In fact, I'm out of multiple loops; it's as if there's one of those odd macrame things one of your relatives made in the late '70s that you've got hanging in the guest room even though nobody can say what it is and I'm outside it.

Erm, anyway, what I want to know is: What have I missed? What's happened to you in the last two months that I should know about? If you have any posts you're particularly proud of, please tell me in the comments!

And while I'm at it:

So lately I've been making lots of chocolate chip cookies and, as a result, when I want to comfort someone online or just let them know I'm thinking of them, one thing I've been doing is offering virtual chocolate chip cookies.

But let's face it. Though I'm not much of a cook, I have rather a lot of fun experimenting with the boxed cookie mixes I buy and really can't leave them alone. So I'm asking you all--when I offer you some virtual chocolate chip cookies, what ingredients would you like added to them?

Good evening, all! I've been thinking it's time for me to make another digital kaleidoscope, but I haven't decided what colors and such to use. So, I've decided to put it to a vote: What color do you think I should use? What type of symmetry should the kaleidoscope have (example: a snowflake would be of the "six points--twelve images" type)? And while we're here, what are some good numbers to use in the random number generator? Thanks for your input! I'll be sure to make the kaleidoscope... erm, sometime real soon now!

Reading my friends list this morning, I am feeling woefully undereducated. So, if you have ever wanted to educate me, here's your chance:

Some of you have seen these questions before in a different format; but I thought that since a wonderful person got me a paid account, I may as well make this into an LJ poll. Let's see if I've done this right...
