Great post on the roll of luck in life. It really gave me pause to think on how lucky I have been. Yes, I like to think I got where I am based on my talents and ability but I thought of all those near misses that could have changed everything. Luck plays a far larger role than we care to admit.
I hope your wife is now cancer free-anyone who doesn't get what devastation that disease can bring to a family just doesn't get how lucky they really are.
Do you remember where you posted that stuff from the Bible? It was that stuff about things you couldn't do. I think it was a homo thread but I'm not sure. There is someone on facebook saying they are following the Bible because God wrote it (like God sat down and wrote it personally).
I watched PotA for about the 1000th time and something struck me as funny. Remember the scene where Taylor made the paper airplane? When Dr Zaius asked about it Zira said that it was a toy and that it floats on air. Then she "Try it." Zaius said "Nonsense" and crumbled it up. That is Tate right there! He's the Minister of Science & Chief Defender of the Faith not Don.
