Flotsam & Jetsam (11/13)

Knox’s Irregulars – It’s been one whole year since the publication of Knox’s Irregulars, and in honor of that, author J. Wesley Bush is making it available as a free download until November 15th. Pretty terrific, yes? I read (and reviewed) Knox last year, and it gets my hearty recommendation. Well-written military science fiction that also happens to be staunchly Reformed in its theology: what more could you want?

Some Latin Words and Phrases You Should Know (And Some You Shouldn’t) – I took two years of Latin (and didn’t much care for it), but this is just plain fun. Si Hoc Legere Scis Nimium Eruditionis Habes: “If you can read this, you’re over educated.”

Word Cloud #12 – Another cool word cloud, this time from Paul’s Epistle to the Colossians.

Saccades and Smooth Pursuits – Or, “Fodder for Your Next Dinner Party.” If you’re tired of talking about the usual old stuff (whatever that may be), here’s something to geek up the conversation.

No Christ Anywhere – Wilson writes, “In our sin, we want to keep inside and outside distinct, so that we can “manage” them, so we can run our simplistic little inventory systems. But in the judgment, the Lord treats the whole thing as an integrated unit.”

Internet Lessons – “Sometimes, seeing something unpleasant online makes me look at myself in the mirror and evaluate whether or not I’m guilty of that.”

Why You Can’t Buy Creativity – Sage advice, indeed.

“You tell me you love me, but I’m not sure you know what love is, or how fast it flies, or how much it resembles a UFO, or what kind of weapon you’d use to shoot it down.”
– Jarod Kintz

  1. My son hated Latin when we homeschooled, but lo, and behold, he’s taking it next year. I’m glad he’s doing it. Our daughter said it has been very useful in her academic life even in just understanding the English language.
