He seems like a nice guy. I watched it at it's at 303 views. As my grandmother would say, "It ain't nothin' but the devil."

We've discovered a fault in the Google-Youtube matrix. Should we send scientists to study it?

I started to watch it but then the guy got struck by lightning about halfway through.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

In the late 90s I worked at a Jesuit High School and we were asked to read Martin's autobiography In Good Company: The Fast Track from the Corporate World to Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience.

He grew up in a typical American Catholic household and after graduation from college, joined the corporate world of high finance. He left the rat race to take a vow of poverty and become a Jesuit priest.

I enjoy his writing and his sense of humor. I wish more Catholic priests had the same humble qualities that Fr. Jim does.
