This-n-That 16

- For you X-Men fans, eagerly awaiting this Friday's premiere, Christianity Today has a good article on the parallels between the X-Men and Christians. Both are in the world and not of the world. Both have choices to make with regards to interacting with the world. Myself, I'm looking forward to seeing the movie this weekend and seeing how the X-Men choose to "interact".

- Well, here's another goodie from CT: Glimpses of an elusive God. What makes it even better is relating golf to your faith-walk. Ya gotta love that! The article helped me to understand the allure golf has for me by introducing the term inconsistent positive reinforcement, where unpredictable rewards maintain your interest:

Inconsistent reinforcement keeps us coming back for more; in gambling we call it addiction, in golf we call it obsession. So I hit three great drives in a row; I can't stay out of the trees for the rest of the day. A great putt on 18 and my friend says, "That'll keep you coming back." And it does.

Another good observation from the article is that if we keep focused on the path in front of us, God has a chance to reveal Himself to us through our peripheral vision. So many people want a direct sign, yet the Lord works on the edges to draw us to Him.

- Most of the folks who visit here are (like me) small-town-lovin' redstaters, people who may like to visit the big city but would prefer not to live there, thank you very much. If you do visit, this guide to New York jargon may help you to "fit in" (uh-huh). There are some interesting definitions and you may even chuckle at a few of them:

Stoopified (adjective): The feeling you have after being glared at for walking on the sidewalk that your neighbors have converted into their own personal patio.

Sidewalks? Aren't patios supposed to be in the back yard with the grill? Go figure.

- Oh yeah, American Idol last night ... eh, whatever. Since Paris and Chris were prematurely booted off, it has been anti-climactic. Both Katherine and Taylor don't do much for me vocally - I can't see where people would want to buy their CD's for the vocal talent. It looks like Taylor will win it in order to have a male winner, though I can see the "let's have someone NOT from a red-state (Southener) win" sentiment give Katherine the edge.

- I just read the story about the two old women who would take insurance policies out on homeless men and then kill them in a hit-and-run accident. They are in custody now and their +$2 million in assets have been frozen. It's difficult to fathom the evil it takes to do something like that. The whole story is interesting if you have a chance to read it (may have to be registered with WaPo, though).

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems
of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of
exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know
any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate
it.
