Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2013-168: The Eternal Red Hot

For over a month a single Red Hot had been sitting in the middle of the floor in the entry way to the men’s bathroom at my school.  I had been walking around it very carefully.  It is a little game I was playing to see how often the place is cleaned.  Today it was gone but the dust that had been around it was still there.  Maybe someone got hungry.

It is kind of childish but I can be that way.  The method to my madness has to do with the waterless urinal that was installed in a fit of green political correctness last year.  I have issues with how a device designed to dispose of body wastes without water can be sanitary.  The answer seems to be chemicals.  Another trade off and I think we lose.  The environmentalists want to use less water to save the world.  To do this they dump chemicals into the system.  It is possible that they are some kind of biodegradable chemicals but I question how effective they are in that case.  I think we have disease waiting to happen.

I have asked around and the only way they are sanitary is if they are serviced regularly.  If the janitors are not moving a Red Hot in the middle of the entryway do you think sanitation is happening in the urinals?

I don’t, but then I don’t believe in unicorns or tooth fairies either.

  1. The last place I worked, there was a small, brown, kidney-bean shaped object in back of one of the commodes for a year-and-a-half. During that time, it got waxed down a time or two, and mopped around on numerous occasions. I THINK it was a snuff packet; but who knows?

    1. I must admit that beats my Red Hot, unless it got kicked behind the toilet. I will look and let you know the results in a year and three-quarters.

      Grace and peace.
