SASF v.11.11 - Where the Hell Am I?

Ok, peeps, my profuse apologies but I don't know what the hell I'm doing or where I'm going. But here I am! lol

After posting to the new blog for a week, I find myself missing the interactions that I have had here. I've also had some feedback from several who find Live Journal confusing. I think what I'm going to do is post here most of the time, but keep the Live Journal going in case I want to post something there. In those cases, I'll post a link here to it so you'll know it's there., I'm going to post SASF here and there both. Yeah, don't know if I'm coming or going but at least I'm moving! lol

Enough blather - on to the fun stuff!

World's Tallest Dog

Meet Gibson. He's a 42.2" Harlequin Great Dane and he's recently been awarded the title of tallest dog in the world by the Guiness people. He lives in Grass Valley, California and he is 7'2" when standing. Dang, that's a big dog!


Real Idaho legislation designed to lavish love and attention on Napoleon Dynamite, of all people (or characters, for that matter) and the creators of the film...

"WHEREAS, any members of the House of Representatives or the Senate of the Legislature of the State of Idaho who choose to vote "Nay" on this concurrent resolution are "FREAKIN' IDIOTS!" and run the risk of having the "Worst Day of Their Lives!""


Nature's Masterpiece

Sometimes, there are surprises like this that just take your breath away.

Heaven is Hotter Than Hell

The temperature of Heaven can be rather accurately computed. Our authority is Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days." Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much radiation as we do from the Sun, and in addition 7 x 7 (49) times as much as the Earth does from the Sun, or 50 times in all.

The light we receive from the Moon is one 1/10,000 of the light we receive from the Sun, so we can ignore that.

The radiation falling on Heaven will heat it to the point where the heat lost by radiation is just equal to the heat received
by radiation, i.e., Heaven loses 50 times as much heat as the Earth by radiation. Using the Stefan-Boltzmann law for radiation, (H/E)^4 = 50, where E is the absolute temperature of the earth (-300ºK), gives H as 798ºK (525ºC).

The exact temperature of Hell cannot be computed. However, Revelation 21:8 says "But the fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone." A lake of molten brimstone [sulphur] means that its temperature must be at or below its boiling point, 444.6ºC.

We conclude, then, that Heaven, at 525ºC is hotter than Hell at 445ºC.

You Worry About Squirrels in the Bird Feeder?

How about this pesky invader? lol

Persistance Pays!

Just Plain Silly

If you're in the mood for some some good ole' silliness, this should do the trick. Dang freaks. lol

Just Plain Wierd

On the other hand, if you're in the mood for something down right wierd, THIS should do the trick. Um....yeah.

On a More Serious Note

I couldn't let today, Veteran's Day, go by without remembering my friend Pod. Pod was a neighbor, friend, helper, and just a super-sweet man. For those of you who don't know, Pod passed away in April from complications of Hepatitis. That's him in the pic on the left, making kissy faces at me in my living room.

He would always bring me flowers & shower me with affection (sometimes too much! lol), and was always willing to help with whatever I needed. This day last year, I took Pod out to lunch calling him my favorite vet - he was a veteran of the Vietnam war. He was so surprised and I don't think I've ever seen him smile that much. I miss Pod very much, and think of him daily. Pod, if you can hear me, I love you and miss you buddy, and I wish I could take you to lunch again today. You'd better have a huge hug waiting for me when we meet again (I know you will).

I'll have to call my uncle Davey today, too, as I do every Veteran's Day to thank him. He fought in World War II, and was among the troops that landed on Omaha Beach where most of them lost their lives.

Thank you to Denny. He's a Vet and a blogger buddy.
...and thank you to Jack .
*hugs*, guys.
There are others...let me know if you think of any that I should mention.

Take some time to think of, to thank, or to honor veterans today. They fought so that we can be free. They deserve our thanks.

Have a great weekend!


  1. awww... thanks celti...i'm honored. :)

  2. you're welcome, Denny. You deserve to be honored.

    Wow, it's quiet in here.


    Either this post sucks ass or it's just me. Probably the latter.

  3. I was able to read that whole paragraph no problem. Funny how it goes. Happy Weekend.

    PS.....I kinda like it here better than Live Journal too but I'll visit whereverc you go.

  4. I have ta agree with Boo, I like it here better but I'll vote Celti any day of the week no matter where she is! hehe

    That "just plain weird" thing was just toooooo plain weird! I was so scared I wanted to cry... ;)


  5. The calculation of heaven's temperature is interesting, but unfortunately they didn't take into account destruction of the ozone layer, which i think will tweak the results a bit. Likewise, the calculation of hell's thermal content fails to account for the effect of increased pressure on the boiling point of sulfur. Since we can reasonably assume that hell is under quite a bit of pressure, what with all the restless souls and their burdens being carried for eternity, its likely that its temperature is in fact quite a lot higher. It may be, therefore, that the temperatures of heaven and hell are actually rather similar. I find that reassuring since i know where i'm going.

  6. Just popping in quick to let ya know I have a new blog...long story...pop in sometime
