    One of our long roof vents blew off on Friday in the middle of a bunch of rain. I patched it up enough that it didn't get to rain in the attic for too long, until the vents can be replaced. But then it immediately went to Below Zero temps so the vents can't be replaced for about 10 days (due to adhesive working and also just general safety). After all that, decided it was best to hibernate this weekend.

    Is that -2 Freedom degrees, or -2 Commie degrees?

    Just found that but doesn't seem to be a conclusive answer. A quick Google didn't answer either, but I'm sure there's some behind the scenes answer out there somewhere ha

    I'm curious to know too.
    Someone said ice cubes, another said gummy worms lol.
    It's probably some latex tubes filled with some liquid or colloid.

    I forgot my gloves this morning so I would have gladly stuck my hands in some tauntaun guts while pumping gas.

    Just spotted at Half Price Books. I didn't buy it, for about $50 reasons. But I had never seen it before. Sorry for the blur, it was in one of the glass cases.

    Just done a quick search and I think the best review I've seen is:

    "This is an actual book. The gist of it is that star wars and star trek are actually true stories about real christians in outer space right now fighting the forces of satan to protect us, and that the movies were made to distract us and make us think the stories aren't real.

    I gave a copy to some friends who are methodist ministers and they practically hyperventilated laughing at it."

    Or:
    "A very strange but fascinating attempt to force the Evangelical Christian worldview into the Star Wars and Star Trek universes. The self-published book by “mavin” Pratney is written in free verse and dedicated to George Lucas, Gene Roddenberry, and Jesus. From Chapter 1:

    Understand.

    You were made to live forever.
    Our hunger to go beyond the stars is not alien.
    It is normal. You were born to rule the Universe.
    Our desire to plant a border beyond the edge of the Universe is but a dim, diluted echo of our true created destiny.

    Don’t give up. Don’t throw in the towel
    because all the world seems filled with its small aspiring Darth Vaders –
    Don’t line up behind the Dark Lord.Our awareness that our lives ought to be involved in a great battle
    which somehow involves the whole future of Mankind is far, far more than fairy tale.
    Our dreams,
    Our hopes
    Our expectations are not big enough.
    It is time we gave up our small ambitions and discovered our real destiny […]

    The odds seem overwhelming –
    Many strong and great men gone forever.
    No sign of any of the Jedi Knights around Against us, near invincible technological might
    Its ally, supernatural power twisted to evil and destructive ends.

    One by one, the strong men in high places giving up the battle,
    One by one, the few and the brave hunted down and killed.

    And now, the Final Showdown."

    Those reviews make it sound just as ridiculous as I expected it would be. If it had been about 10 bucks or less I might have bought it for the laughs. But no way I'd drop 50 on it.
