People shared iterations of that story well over a million times, because it serves that child right for being so…child-like.
4 Types of Bullying We Are Shockingly OK With
This is exactly what the wife and I said the minute our mostly childless friends started sending this across the internet with cries of glee.
"I’ve been fixing watches in this chair for almost sixty years. It required a lot more skill in the old days. Now I pretty much just replace batteries."
He’s a human literary novel. A white, probably British, watchmaker in India. Sixty years ago was just before Ghandi. Imagine the change he’s seen? The metaphors would be too obvious for most literary critics.
The beautiful woodpile mosaic owls are the work of Gary Tallman, an 82-year-old Montana resident who turns the chore of stacking firewood into an art form. Over the years Tallman has learned the many colors found in various types of cordwood and uses them as his palette.
“Everybody doesn’t notice how many tones in the wood there are,” Marilyn Tallman said of her husband’s eye for the subtleties of wood. “He sees beauty in all kinds of things.”
“Generally speaking, we can find almost all the colors and tones in the woods that we harvest,” Tallman said of his woodpile mosaic. “Except for black,” he confessed. “We don’t have any ebony around here so I do color the ends of some of the black ones. But the others are pretty much just the way they come out of nature.”
Tallman’s ongoing owl theme is based on the birds who live in the trees around his home in Montana’s Little Belt Mountains. Each piece begins with a sketch drawn on graph paper. After first chopping and splitting the wood, Tallman sorts the various hues into separate piles. Then the process of stacking begins. He estimates that it takes him about 20 hours to stack one of his mosaics.

I posted a picture of this mans work a while back here with no idea who did it. It still gets regular likes and reblogs. I’m glad I finally have a face to put to the art.

I love the fact that Goblin has to do a double take on that line and suddenly knows that Peter Parker’s back and now he’s in trouble. :P
Show of hands: How many of you accepted Christ into your hearts after reading the text of a passive-aggressive shirt or bumper sticker? Be honest, we’re all friends here. This is a safety zone. No one? Not one person in the history of the universe has ever changed religions because of a parody T-shirt? Get out of town and take your lying devil mouths with you.

I am a practicing evangelical protestant Christian and I gotta say, Cracked is completely write about this. Christianity isn’t a fan club, people. I’m not a fan or a friend of Jesus. I’m family. That’s so different.
