Belief in Creationism Lowers a Bit — What I find bizarre is that we live in a society where this can be polled. It's the precise intellectual equivalent of polling to ask people if angels hold their feet down at every step or if gravity is real.

I love this sentence, and will quote it at the next available opportunity.

As to the thaw, it's been and gone here in Ottawa. We reached 9 degrees (48.2 Fahrenheit) yesterday, which is unheard of for this time of year, but we're dropping back to -5 (23 Fahrenheit) today.

I thought that my feet were held on the ground by demons. Everyone knows that angels seek to raise us to the heavens where we will all commune with the divine in the upper æther.
