OneDrive links are broken

For some reason WordPress will no longer allow me to properly embed my video files from OneDrive. They all end up either taking users to the OneDrive page after being loaded into the blog post or show up as ‘content cannot be displayed in a frame’. For those of you looking over older posts, please bear with me, as I try to get things fixed. I’m starting to dislike WordPress, as the alternate solutions I have found for embedding video seem to be changed by the WP editor when I try to publish my posts. Its irritating.

Discussion Page: Sexbots

I had been writing a post on an experience I had with some people on Facebook when Breitbart posted a story on the upcoming sexbot revolution. Many Christians were of the mind that using these machines would be sinful for two reasons:

  1. Sex outside of the marriage bed is not permitted. It is sin.
  2. Many turned in the bible to the story of Onan, who failed to impregnate his brothers wife after he had died, as the law dictated. However, he didn’t just tell everyone he didn’t want to do the deed, he went in and had sex with his dead brothers wife, but pulled out so as not to impregnate her. This angered God and he killed Onan for it.

The post got exceedingly large and may have needed an NSFW indicator, so I scrapped it. However, it would be interesting to see what some of you think about this upcoming event – and trust me, it IS going to happen, and when it does there is going to be a battle not only in the courts of law, but in the hearts and minds of believers. Lets talk in the comments section!

What’s your take on the issue?

So What’s Wrong With Cavemen?

Ah, the proverbial caveman. He of little whit and much muscle, who’s solution to life’s problem was to simply bash something with a club or a rock.  Never wondering if he could achieve the greatness of becoming a lawyer, or how he was going to insure the dinosaur he rode to work every day, he just lived day in and day out, lifting heavy things, hunting for food so his family wouldn’t starve and probably having plenty of sex with his wife.

The stereotypical caveman has an number of prominent features, often including a large, sloping forehead, unkempt and matted hair on his head and hair on his chest that would even have made Robin Williams slink off in shame. Often speaking in grunts and crude words, we make fun of him as he tries to explain things to us “intelligent” peoples in often odd terms.

Most prominent about him, however, is his physique. A rugged life lived in a cave along with days full of lifting heavy things, hunting, gathering and fighting off things that want to kill him have made him a superior specimen of mankind. With very little in the way of machines to do his work for him (depending on which era your particular model comes from) the caveman was forced to lift, push and carry most everything on his own. All this manual labor has made the caveman a literal hulk of a man, which his wife happens to adore, along with several other cave-ladies, I’m sure.

So why the general hate of the caveman? Sure we are smarter than him, but he could kick the ass of most modern men with little effort, to be sure. Why is it when we exhibit opinions that aren’t of the “enlightened mainstream” men are referred to as “caveman” or “medieval”? I mean, don’t we “go medieval” on people when we plan on beating them relentlessly?

The Western world has a lack of cavemen in its midst and we suffer for it. Modern “girly-men” who wear skirts (not kilts) and pajama bottoms, who hate the idea of going into the outdoors and don’t have the first clue how to use the most basic of tools are anathema to the image of men everywhere, and science shows us that the testosterone level of modern Western men is in deep decline. It doesn’t matter what modern “enlightened” men tell you, testosterone (or just, T) makes a man a man! The more the better (to an extent of course, too much bodily production of anything can have negative effects).

Guys, want to run faster? Hit harder? Lift more? Be a caveman! The world around us has too many words what with talk shows, politicians, governments, news channels. Too much talk and not enough action!

Want to attract the ladies? Be a caveman! All the time if your dating, on and off if your married. The ladies LOVE the strong silent type! Don’t believe me? Just look at nearly every romance novel ever written! Who is the woman after? The silent spy who can hold his own against a group of enemy soldiers. The knight in dirty armor who doesn’t mince words, but can mince a bad guy with just a few swings of his mighty sword! The single-minded business man who is the terror of Wall Street because he knows what he wants, when he wants it and how he wants it, and he never backs down.

And, our loveable caveman, who shows his affection for his cave-lady by picking her up over his shoulder, carrying her off into a cave and making her feel like a woman.

Caveman, you call me? Hey, thanks! I don’t feel like a caveman, but I’m working hard to get there.

Its’ how they’ve been trained.

So if you have read over any of my previous blog posts you know that not that long ago I left the church I was attending over how they were changing the meaning of scripture to accommodate modern culture, and that despite my leaving, my wife decided she would still be attending, against my wishes, of course. Something pertaining to the subject has been sitting in my mind for a while so yesterday I spoke to her again about her going against my wishes, which is sin, as she is commanded by the bible to be obedient to me, her husband, and submit to my will.

Now, this is done to protect her, as being at a church that is willing to change the meaning of scripture because it makes them uncomfortable is dangerous to believers, even if that change is there because its generally how most churches think, but that’s not how my wife sees it. She sees it as me trying to control her simply because I “think I’m right”. It doesn’t matter to her that she is supposed to be submitting to my authority, according to the God she follows. All that matters is that I am telling her what to do, with authority, and that doesn’t jive.

Cronus update

So I haven’t done a lot of work on this guy since the temperatures have been exceedingly high in my area, but I need to get it done one way or another, so I have been working during my lunch break when its between 90-98 degrees outside. So far I have gotten pretty far, and I’m pretty happy with how its turning out with the exception of the pommel, which is far, far too thick. I should have used 1/2″ boards instead of 3/4″, and I may trim it down, but I’m afraid to do anything that will ruin this pieces, as I cannot start over at this point. I wanted to have done more shaping, but I really don’t have the tools for that kind of work. Maybe version 2?
