The Smart Guys and Me

 

Semi-daily preaching by a Semi-daily Preacher on a semi-daily basis

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

I don’t wanna sound all braggy but, facts is facts…I destroyed the Bible Scholars last night with my superior preaching.  They never saw it comin’.

Of course, I ALSO simultaneously got myself dis-fellowshipped from about 9 different denominations, while tickin’ off about a hundred big brained Bible guys and their wives but…these things happen. 

Francis Collins, the human genome/world famous scientist guy was there.  We chatted afterwards for a while and found that we have lots in common.  Apparently, he discovered the human genome a while ago.  I told him that I have also found stuff…usually in the backyard or my closet. I think he was impressed, though he seemed a bit skittish to see me.  He probably thought I was gonna try to baptize him right there on the spot.  Don’t laugh.  I thought about it.  He probably noticed the “Pre-baptize Glaze” I get in my eye right before I dunk somebody.  He’s a scientist, they notice that kind of stuff. «Read the rest of this article»

Child’s Entrapment Death Prompts Big Lots Recall of Metal Futon Bunk Beds

 

U.S. Consumer Product Safety CommissionWashington, D.C. – In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Big Lots, of Columbus, OH, is voluntarily recalling about 30,000 metal futon bunk beds.

Children behind the futon or in the ladder area of the bunk bed can get entrapped when the futon and its metal frame are lowered from the seated to the flat position. This is what happened to a three-year old Burlington, IA boy who died when he became entrapped at the head and neck in the recalled bunk bed in March of 2010. The weight of the futon’s metal frame prevented the child from breathing and escaping. CPR was administered, but the child died at the hospital due to compression asphyxiation.
