Amazing Robotics

This video blew my mind; it simply is astounding how far we’ve come with robotics and how much more we still can go. I honestly can’t imagine where we’ll be even in 10 years from now…

The cellphone catch is incredible.

Is there anything that man won’t be able to do…?

North Point Bloggers, Please Stand Up!


Hey John, who else on staff blogs?

I’ve been asked this question enough times that it’s time I created a little page that listed out all the bloggers on staff here @ North Point Ministries.

So, here it is: North Point Bloggers (and Tweeters)

Please note that this is the un-official list and only those that want to be on this list get on it.

Obviously I need to fill it, so North Point-ers, can you please stand up (and email me)!!!

Husband Fail Friday

It’s Friday! Time for another Husband Fail!

This is your opportunity to share silly stories of how your husband pretty much failed you this past week!

Or, if you want to be honest (Mr. Husband) then go ahead and admit what you did and how it was so lame of you to do whatever you did before your wife shows up and does it for you!

So, these were my first attempts at just pointing and shooting my daughter, @Roenne. Please feel free to critique me and tell me something more original than “Hey dude, you need to practice…” or “Hey man, are you a n00b?” (to which the answer, again, is yes.).

Praise the Lord for Auto-focus…!

Today I felt like I was thwarting zombies at every turn, whether it was relationship-zombies, product/project-zombies, marriage-zombies, hater-zombies, anxiety-zombies, my-daughter-getting-to-school-on-time-and-picked-up-zombies, and more.

Best tactic I know of to thwart these corpses of mayhem is prayer and a freakin’ big baseball bat to the dome.

Hopefully tomorrow they’ll be all dead.
