commented on Slog Bible Study: Hosea 3:1-3
So the annotation on that says that this woman may be Gomer: "This may refer to Gomer, the woman Hosea married (see 1.3), or it may refer to another woman." If you read Hosea 1.2-1.3, you find that God made Hosea marry an unfaithful wife:
2 The Lord said, “Hosea, Israel has betrayed me like an unfaithful wife. Marry such a woman and have children by her.” 3 So I married Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and we had a son.
Either Gomer was the same person as in ch 3 or Hosea really had a thing for "unfaithful" women.
But still...Hosea married Gomer. Huh.
commented on Why Twitter's Latest Change Is a Bad Idea
Also note that the pictures appear to be cropped to a specific size, trimming off the top and bottom. You can see it in the Kit Kat ad above. So you're not even seeing full pictures and have to click through anyway if you do want to see them.
I'm sure advertisers will start optimizing their images for the crop soon.
@7, unsolicited ads are starting to show up at the top of Twitter timelines, you don't have to subscribe to these things to see them.
commented on Ron and Rand Paul's Accidental Racism Is Looking Pretty Damn Intentional to Me
I'm sure they think we're only calling them racist because they say racist things, hang out with other racists, and agree with them about everything. I mean, surely they're not racist just because they think and say the same things that their racist buddies do, right?
We're obviously the ones being quite unreasonable here.
commented on Why Does Poor Oklahoma City have a Professional B-Ball Team?
@52 - No, no need to explain the obvious. I blame the shithead owners, not OKC or the region. No city "deserves" a basketball team. They can be great to have, but, man, do the team owners suck. I think Seattle should have a hoops team, I do. If people want to shit on the Okies, choose the right targets, the owners and the politicians that enable them.
