We are the ones...

Vote vote vote!!

This election is too important to take anything for granted... Don't let the positive results in the polls right now let us become complacent or cocky!! This election is ours to lose.

We need folks to show up and VOTE! The polls mean nothing if we don't show up on or before election day!!

Talk to people, call people - remind them to vote!!

The Bible is Anti-Wink

Did you know the Bible is anti-winking?


Apparently, neither does Sarah:




I'm currently reading The Year of Living Biblically, by AJ Jacobs. He spent a year trying to follow the Bible as literally as possible, documenting his experiences, so he read the Bible from cover to cover and wrote down all the rules - over 700. And apparently the Bible is anti-winking.

"The Bible's antiwinking bias (there are at least four warnings against winkers) is one of the least-studied scriptural motifs around. I found negligible literature on the topic. But it does seem wise and ahead of its time, the wink being perhaps the world's creepiest gesture, with the winker convincing the winkee into being a part of his little cabal."

(Emphasis mine)

I agree with the creepiness factor, most definitely.
