The Purging Lutheran is sure this flashlight would work just fine if it had a power source. It doesn’t work on batteries but rather on wires (ay carrumba, those wires again) to be hooked up to a cigarette lighter so when you’re stuck on the side of the road you can flash out an S-O-S to passersby zooming by in their operable autos. Of course, you’d look pretty silly if it was daylight and you’re waving a flashlight when you could just wave someone down or walk across the street and make a phone call at Charles E Coagulated Casein.
Wires, wires, wires. We have miles of wires but who wants to sit with a box of them and play Rubiks Cube with them? My Sweet Rib might like that sort of misery but not me. By the way, I came across a fascinating fact today. I learned the swimming pool on the Titanic is still full of water. How can that be?
The Word was first,
the Word present to God,
God present to the Word.
The Word was God,
in readiness for God from day one.
Everything was created through him;
nothing—not one thing!—
came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
the darkness couldn’t put it out.
