It's St. Valentine's Day! A day of rampant, loving, commercialism that I just adore. Sure, there's lots of wars and injustice in the world, but as long as I get my roses and my choccies then everything's just tickety-boo. God's love is really big though. A hermit asked moses for an atom's worth of God's love (the hermit was quite scientifically literate for 1600 BC). "I won't give him an atom's worth," said God. "I won't give him a nucleus' worth. I won't even give him a proton's worth. I'll give him a quark's worth." And with that, God blew up the hermit's mountain and left him in a crater in the ground. That's god's love for you. Now where are my presents.

Taking bits out of people's speech makes it (hic!) meaningless, while pauses in a Harold Pinter play adds (hic!) meaning. Meanwhile the U.S. can't explain why Shias arm Sunnis to kill Shias (hic!), just like psalm 46 says, or was it a Bhuddist thing? Anyway, God being quiet (hic!) is a good thing. Am I making sense? (hic!).
