  1. The 'Bishop's Resignation' letter was interesting, not leastly because Mormon apologist Mike Ash showed up in comments.

    His argument was "The Church hasn't been hiding things! You were just too lazy to look!"

    Then, when other commenters pointed out that this was rather arrogant and dismissive, he said, "Exactly as I expected! Angry critics. I've got better things to do than argue with youlot."

    And he was off.

  2. Interesting. The ex-bishop has now made the post "password protected." It can be found here though.

  3. My favorite was the randomly captures images from Google. It's amazing what they capture in any given moment, especially when it's from the satellite view. Street view is a little bit more comprehensible, but the aerial shots are something else. And, the site about pin-ups from picture to paint is amazing- especially how they were able to alter the images and womens' bodies.
