I saw this article: http://www.nature.com/news/mystery-humans-spiced-up-ancients-rampant-sex-lives-1.14196 and jokingly asked my semitic philology friend if these might be the Nephilim (or perhaps the mysterious Adam and Eve animated by God). he told me i could go mystically descend the pardes and ask metatron himself.
that just got me another thread. Metatron is an archangel. he is, shockingly, sitting down in heaven, which is Not Done, as you do not sit in the presence of God. this was corrected by saying that, you know, Metatron can sit because he's the heavenly scribe. Metatron is also, by the way, often identified with the ascended Enoch, which is kind of weird, really, but that's Judeo-Christianity.
But this brings me to my real point: R.L Burnside was a blues musician who had an album called "I wish I was in heaven sitting down". It's pretty decent. I know I've mentioned RL Burnside and Metatron before - I am nothing if not repetitive - but I don't think I connected them in this way before.
Here's a live show that's okay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH5yzvUtKz4

I really need to get some of this work done. otherwise my grade in life will be C (the same as the programming language i am working in).
I've had a cold for the last couple days. it has been draining my productivity. i think i'm on the upswing.
gave an exam, graded it, handed it back. things were okay. it was harder than the last, not by intentional design, but because the material is harder. this was confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. anyway, today's lecture was very uninspired because it was 8am and i had a cold. i felt like apologizing afterward. "sorry guys, i'm tired as hell and have a head full of cotton."
need to sign up the wifing unit for obamacare. hopefully a death panel won't take her away. or monitor her precious bodily fluids. but, then again, THIS IS A REPUBLIC, NOT A DEMOCRACY.
I am disappointed that there are not more sites or at least articles dedicated to making fun of Ben Swann. he's a 9/11 truther ("rethink" building 7 campaign) and a sandy hook truther (multiple shooters??). he is very brave. so brave. i would be able to take libertarianism more seriously if its major figures weren't only a nod away from conspiracy theorists, anti-semites, and neo-confederates. every political group has their shady connections, but it seems libertarian politicians are only about shady connections.
