Jesus as carpenter was a wood worker.
Jesus as Christ is a would worker.

Today’s news, 3.27.2000 – super fish: scientists are trying to
force grow fish twice as fast. Say it’ll save the
world’s food population. Evidently they never watched
the Roger Corman film “Humanoids From The Deep“.
Scientists there said the same thing, and the big, fast fish
came upon the land and ate and raped the humans.
It did solve the fish food problem, so it wasn’t a total waste.

If we have to, as we have had to,
and we want to, we will.

The oil & chemical industries have introduced 70,000 synthetic
chemicals into the environment this century increasing the
concentration of carbon dioxide to 30% – on the other hand, last

Life per time in the U.S.A.:
Population: 1900 = 76 million | 2000 = 270 mil

people in average household: 1900 = 4.8 | 2000 = 2.6
14-17 yr olds in school: 1900 = 11% | 2000 = 93%
% of population that is white: 1900 = 88% | 2000 = 62%
Average family’s income: 1900 = $3,000 | 2000 = $45,000

Notice 100 yrs ago women lived 2 yrs longer than men.

This is a long road to whore.
We’ve become the curse of our mummy’s womb.
We can take nothing for granted, not even granite.
Night has fallen, and it can’t get up.

There are 2 “Jack Frost” films out.
In one, Michael Keaton is the well meaning dad who’s never
home cuz he’s touring in his rock band – he gives his son a

plays, dad comes back as the snowman in the front yard.
Warm fuzzies ensue.
In the 2nd, serial killer on way to execution crashes into
biogen truck and as he dies his evil life force combines with
the toxic bioshit and he becomes a serial killing snowman
who in one scene disguises himself as a hot bath so he can
molest the naked she bather.
I missed the 1st movie, bought the 2nd for its 3-D cover.

God says to Satan: “What do you do about a political party
that favors insurance companies over patients, tobacco over
kids, guns over victims, & then cheers wildly after voting
for the spread of nuclear weapons?”
Satan relies: “Hey, that’s why I became a Republican”.
That was in quotes in my notebook, so I stole it somewhere.

At our Ku Klux Klan rally last year, Cleveland had 0 arrests,
40 Klansmen on stage, 30 supporters in the audience, 300

A: None – it can’t be done.)
