Things I have recently spotted that may be of interest to someone else:
(Sort of) Wired reports that there are scientists, some at big-name institutions, who are doing research on some strange topics, indeed.
(and politics, I guess) Sports Illustrated reports that President Obama welcomed the University of North Carolina men's basketball team, national champions, to the White House, saying that playing in a scrimmage game with them, while he was Candidate Obama, brought him good luck.
USA Today reports on a major league baseball game wherein the two starting pitchers had a combined height of 12 feet, 7 inches, a major league all-time record for that statistic. (Who knew they were keeping track!)
In going through notes in a now retired Bible of mine, I found one, which stated, correctly, that a woman, who lost a coin, represents God in a parable in Luke 15. (So do two men, in other parables in the same chapter.) Another note on the same chapter says, I think correctly, that these stories are not about lost things, but about losing things, but about God's faithfulness. Neither of these excellent ideas were mine, by the way.
I didn't post a Sunspots last week, due to some computer problems. Blogger faithfully posted some stuff I had scheduled ahead. Thanks for reading!
