Aw, geez! Really? Not again. This is a curling iron*. It is used to curl hair. This one looks like it self-curled its own electric cord … and failed miraculously.
Welcome to The Bad Math Hour. A curling iron operates on 85 watts of electricity. A (typical?) lightning bolt contains 10 billion watts of power. Supposing you were Ben Franklin and were able to connect a lightning bolt to a curling iron, what would happen? Let’s do the math:
10,000,000,000 lightning bolt watts divided by 85 curling iron watts equals nearly 118,000,000 times your curling iron would be burnt to a crisp (and presumably you with it if you’re dandifying your hair out in a storm).
The Purging Lutheran can not promise there won’t be other curling irons being purged but I think this is it. Goodbye hair-care product, off to the ‘Will with ya.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.
But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God—the free life!—even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action.
* Good gravy! Just how much hair does My Sweet Rib have?
