01:37 am - How many has God killed?
If you summed all the people killed by God (either directly, or at his command) how many people would it be? Steve Wells of Dwindling In Unbelief counted all the deaths for which the bible gives at least an approximate figure. By his count, God has killed 2,270,369 people. Note that this figure only includes deaths for which a number is given in the bible. Deaths for which no number was given, such as from the worldwide flood, are not included.
What can 8 weeks of the Gym Jones 300 workout do to a man’s body? This:
Vincent shed about 40 lbs and increased his deadlift from 205 to 355. About half the crew was able to do the following “300″ workout by the end of 4 months of training:
25x Pull-up +
50x Deadlift @ 135# +
50x Push-up +
50x Box Jump @ 24” box +
50x Floor Wiper @ 135# (one-count) +
50x KB Clean and Press @ 36# (KB must touch floor between reps) +
300 reps total
Now to actually do it.
01:11 pm - John Stone
John Stone took pictures of himself every day for 479 days from January 6, 2003 until April 28, 2004, then every month on the first of the month to the present. He says that his physique changed solely due to diet and exercise (no steroids). You can watch a video of his transformation here. (2.4 MB Quicktime)
03:44 pm - GEEK: Thunderbird IMAP slow
I’m using Thunderbird (version 22.214.171.124) on a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (1 GB Ram) running Mac OS X 10.4.9. When I connect to my account at fastmail.fm via IMAP, it frequently takes several minutes for each folder to open, and when I send mail, it often takes several minutes to copy the sent mail to the Sent folder (and sometimes it fails altogether.) Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any suggestions for what I might do to debug it?
[Edit: This has been going on for a couple of weeks, and happened when I was running the previous release of Thunderbird. If I stop and restart Thunderbird, it goes away for a while. ]
