Stupid Things That People Do

Risky Behavior

Turkey Pardons

The tradition of sparing turkeys dates back to 1963, when President John F. Kennedy sent a turkey from the National Turkey Federation back to the farm, declaring, "We'll just let this one grow." President George H.W. Bush was the first to grant a turkey an official presidential pardon in 1989.

Today's Luther

"Therefore we must not doubt that the Holy Spirit dwells in us; but we must be sure and acknowledge that we are, as Paul says; “a temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Cor. 6:19). For if someone experiences love toward the Word, and if he enjoys hearing, speaking, thinking, lecturing, and writing about Christ, he should know that this is not a work of human will or reason but a gift of the Holy Spirit. For it is impossible for these things to happen without the Holy Spirit. On the other hand, where there is hate and contempt for the Word, there the devil, “the god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4), is reigning, blinding the hearts of men and holding them captive, to keep the light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ from shining upon them. This is what we see in the rabble today; they do not care about the Word at all but smugly despise it, as though it did not pertain to them at all. Those in whom there is some glow and yearning for the Word should acknowledge with gratitude that this feeling has been infused into them by the Holy Spirit. For we are not born with this feeling; nor can we be instructed to acquire it by any laws. It is the right hand of the Most High, pure and simple, that has changed us (Ps. 77:10). Therefore when we are glad to hear the proclamation about Christ, the Son of God, who was made man for us and subjected Himself to the Law to redeem us, then with and through that proclamation God surely sends the Holy Spirit into our hearts." - Martin Luther

Modus Operandi of a Serial Killer

Here is a link to a long article that reveals the modus operandi of a serial killer who preyed on marines. There is much truth in what we tell children : "Stranger! Stranger! Danger! Danger!" Unfortunately, there are many adults whose self esteem is so low that they make bad decisions and subsequently find themselves in situations that resemble quicksand. There are predators out there and you need to be aware of this fact.
