IF: Idle

Cylinder #4 is misfiring on my car. It doesn't idle well at the moment. Time for new set of spark plugs maybe?

Also, I've been meaning to glue that bumper back on.

Editorial Cartoon

In local news, Oak Island (beach people) and St. James (golf people) are both trying to annex the same property. Lisa Stites asked me to draw the Mayors playing tug o' war for the Opinion section of the Pilot.

IF: Hollow

There is a saying about the "God shaped hole" in all of us. It's true for me at least.
Of course I seem to have other "holes" but now this is really getting weird.

(from http://hindsfoot.org/godsha.html)
Pascal (1623-1662) wrote in his Pensees (10.148):1

What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself.

Carbon dating

Here is another pointless drawing. It seems that I've enjoyed drawing windows lately.
t1/2 is the half-life of carbon-14. Which is 5,700 years assuming that the rate of decay remains constant. I don't think so. But I'm not a physicist.

Newshounds prevail in Oak Island Adult Soccer League championships

The trophy is at my house for now. It looks small in this picture but it's pretty big... like three regular sized trophies from the dollar store all glued together. The fact that I got the trophy first doesn't necessarily mean I'm some super athlete or anything. I think got a goal in every regular season game I played, so I'll take some credit. But the other guys are the ones who got it done. My greatest contribution was keeping us from forfeiting.

Pictured are the Newshounds, standing Chris Wellman, Stephen Boyett, Stewart Davis, Kurt Bonney and Brad Schrader; front row, Daniel Chaffin, Brian Deutsch, Bret McCormick and Josh Timbers.
