The Most Offensive Commercial on Television

This commercial is horrible. I've seen it on television a couple times in the last few weeks. Watch it before reading my comments below.

What is wrong with our world?

I was truly in love and married my dream girl.

But if I would have known she didn't have good credit, that would have made all the difference.

Because, heck, what's love when you're talking about material possessions like owning your own home?

I guess "for better or for worse" applies to everything but credit.

Sonic Boom!

Dang, I come up with some creative titles.

Remember Street Fighter 2? When Krista and I were in college, we use to while away the hours in the student center trying to beat Balrog and Major Bison (good ol' Freed-Hardeman). Maybe that was more me, but I think I got her to play a few times. And Blanka was my favorite. That's actually his picture - not mine - in the profile. In case you didn't know.

Apparently, Capcom is coming out with Street Fighter IV. Just watching this trailer makes me want to pick up a new video game system so I can play it.

Check it out.

And if you can handle some language, check out the hilarious Street Fighter: The Later Years. Zangief and Dhalsim round up the gang to capture some of the old magic.

Back to Bed

This morning's sky almost makes me want to lay down and take a nap. Maybe I'll just pull over here on the side of the road...

What do people see when they look at you?

A couple weeks ago during the 11 am service at Crosspoint, Randy Hargett was saying how you're professing Jesus no matter what you're doing. The idea really hit home while listening to the radio a few nights later.

I was driving home, listening to Total Axxess - an evening radio show out of Nashville that plays on the local WAY FM Christian station. The DJ was talking about confessing horrible things that you've done - though more in the vein of social faux pas. Someone called in with the following story. Now, it almost sounds like a joke to me - something you might forward in e-mails, but the guy tells it like it's something that really happened to him. I tried to Google it, but had no luck. Maybe it really is true.

The story he tells is that one day he is driving down the road, and this guy gets behind him and starts honking at him like a crazy person. He just won't stop. The guy keeps driving behind him and honking and honking. Finally, the guy telling the story gets sick of it and turns around and flips the guy off.

Now, at this point I figured he was going to get home and feel bad because he left his gas tank open or something and the other guy was trying to tell him.

But no, it's better.

He ends up at some point washing his car. It's then that he finds that his wife has put the bumper sticker on his car, "Honk if you love Jesus."

The moral of this story is to always remember - you're always sharing your faith, regardless of how your acting. What kind of impression are you making?
