Most people probably envision Hell as a deep and vast underground cavern full of thick smoke and scorching flames... and, of course, an infinite number of nightmarish demons and tortured souls. I’m guessing there’s a lot of screaming in this scen...

Toys Have Changed Since I Was a Kid...

I saw this picture today and couldn't help but think that the overall quality of toys has changed a bit since I was a wee lass. Even a super lame movie like Superman Returns managed to spawn a product as cool as this "Truck Lifting Superman Set" desi...

Reader Mail #2

Reader Mail #1

It has been a hectic week for me as my Passing Thoughts blog is becoming quite the time-consumer. True, writing the actual blogs does not take much time as I put no effort into them whatsoever and they are designed to be wordy, interminably slow and...

WTF?!? (The Speculated History of Cussing)

I’ve been pondering one of life’s most interesting questions lately: When did cussing begin?If you think about it, the first cuss word could not possibly have been considered a cuss word until a group of people (perhaps some sort of majority) dee...

A Dissertation on the Deities of the Diamond #2
