Angering the Irishman

Angering the Irishman

Three Englishmen were in a bar and spotted an Irishman. So, one of the Englishmen walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder, and said, “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was a drunken loser.”

“Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”

Puzzled, the Englishman walked back to his buddies. “I told him St. Patrick was a loser, and he didn’t care.” The second Englishman remarked, “You just don’t know how to set him off…watch and learn.” So, the second Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, “Hey, I hear your St. Patrick was lying, cheating, idiotic, low-life scum!”

“Oh really, hmm, didn’t know that.”

Shocked beyond belief, the Englishman went back to his buddies. “You’re right. He’s unshakable!”

The third Englishman remarked, “Boys, I’ll really tick him off… just watch.” So the third Englishman walked over to the Irishman, tapped him on the shoulder and said, “I hear St. Patrick was an Englishman!”

“Yeah, that’s what your buddies were trying to tell me.”

Bigfoot mania comes to W.Va.

I read an interesting article (first in a two-part series ) in the Register-Herald about an “international group’s effort to locate Bigfoot inside West Virginia.”

I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that they will not find Bigfoot. However; I am sure that the locals will love the tourist dollars.

I believe that finding bigfoot would be like finding an honest politician. Both are myths in the America of today …

The Father of D&D

I was saddened to learn of the death of Gary Gygax, the father of Dungeons and Dragons. Mr. Gygax passed away at the age of 69 at his home of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

Gygax and Dave Arneson created Dungeons & Dragons in 1974. I spent a lot of time at a table in a college dorm room with other players. It was a fun time.

I play a lot of Guild Wars so I guess my old hobbies have not changed that much. Although, nothing can equal the old days with friends, food, and dice.

Rest in peace Dungeon master …

Review: Old Man’s War

Old Man’s War by John Scalzi

One of the best scifi books that I have read recently.

“I did two things on my seventy-fifth birthday. I visited my wife’s grave. Then I joined the army.”

The seventy-five-year-old writer, John Perry, joins the army or in this case the Colonial Defense Force. Perry is provided with a new young body for his exciting new life of  meeting and killing new life-forms.

The story is simply awesome. It is fast paced and easy to read. I would like to have seen a spiritual side to some of the soldiers. The Bible was quoted during an argument but little in the way of spirituality was mentioned.

“‘But I say unto you, Love your enemies,'” I quoted. “‘Bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father who is in Heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.'”

I would have liked to see how humans/CDF responded to alien religious ideas and philosophies.

Still, its excellent …
