Who WOULD Jesus Bomb?

Have you seen this bumper sticker that's recently become popular:
Who Would Jesus Bomb?
To answer the question, it would be helpful to know more about what is "the Christian thing to do" than just popular mythology. I suggest going to the source. In fact, I think one could make a case that to be a fully-educated American, one should have read the entire Bible.

Here's a hint: the answer to the question, "What would Jesus do?"

Leave an answer if you dare!

What Lifestyle Trend Would You Like to See?

In this fascinating post at final fashion, Danielle asks a series of riveting questions:

What makes something desireable? It’s something that everyone wants but few can have.

What makes something unfashionable? Something that everyone already has.

Ubiquity is killing these trends:

Skinny Jeans = everyone’s got’em, no longer desireable
Reality Television Fame = everyone’s tainted, no longer desireable
Actual Celebrity Fame = oversaturated, no longer desireable
Fashion Design Degree = dime a dozen, no longer desireable
Printed T-Shirt Lines = you do ‘em, I do ‘em, anyone can do ‘em, no longer desireable.

These are things that I think have become rare enough to develop into new trends:

Back to the Land = everyone’s been flooding into the cities for a long time now. We’re ripe for a revival of this idea.
Non-Distressed Denim = it lasts longer and is more authentic, and seeing an honestly worn-out pair of jeans is a rare event.
Craftspeople and Technicians = when everyone is designer and white collar, suddenly people who can actually execute ideas are far rarer and much more impressive.

What else have you not seen around for a while? What can you think of that few people are doing?

Kicking these questions around a little longer seems appropriate.

I'll add one more answer (I left one over there too): How about we ditch the tired old public school, segregated-by-age model for EVERYTHING and start just getting together in organic, multi-age groups? Could that account for the growing popularity of homeschooling?

How Much Time Alone Do You Need?

When I asked this question before, the consensus seemed to be that it deserved a post of its own. Allow me to add to it the following:

  • Do you consider yourself an introvert or an extrovert?

  • Would you say you were outgoing, shy, or hard-to-warm-up?
