Excerpt from the Bee: U.S.—A recent survey performed by CCLI confirmed that AC/DC’s hard rock classic “Highway to Hell” is more theologically accurate than 96% of the songs that most worship bands play on any given Sunday.
The study examined over 800 songs and compared their theology to the Scriptures, and found that the Australian rock group’s 1979 classic was “significantly more accurate” than over 96% of them.
“While modern worship songs tend to contain little theology, an anemic view of sin, and a poor understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit, ‘Highway to Hell’ has a very biblical view of the doctrine of hell,” a CCLI rep said. “Lead singer Bon Scott had a clear understanding of man’s natural inclination toward sin and the inevitable judgment of God that follows.”
So… is it satire? Or a case of “Life Imitates Onion/DuffleBlog”?
I’ve had class interrupted by fire drills, intruder drills, the Birthday Howl, parents seeking children (phone call from the office), teachers seeking students, the Joker and Batman chasing each other through the lecture theater (Halloween at Flat State U). . .
This was the first time I’ve had class interrupted by a conch shell trumpet. Two classrooms away.

Excitement – Yeah, this looks challenging but we have plenty of time and it will be fun!
Puzzled trepidation – It doesn’t seem that hard, but we do have a year, so we’re good.
I’m going to stop looking at the floor. Last week, apparently, was Texas Water on the Floor Week. Yes, there was more than sufficient coming out of the sky, but also some on the floor in places where it ought not be.
Like, the kitchen at Redquarters. In front of the freezer. Continue reading
Seen at a local church:
Will the person who prayed for rain please come pray over our bank account?
The average for the month of October here is 1.66″.
As of Saturday morning, we have had 5.38″ since October 1. That’s the official total. Redquarters has gotten 6.80″ of rain. Day Job has gotten over eight inches.
I’m not sayin’ that we’re too wet, but I did get a little concerned yesterday evening when I saw animals pairing off, two by two…
It’s Fair Week!
Deep fried bacon-battered chicken. On a stick. And it was very good. As was the funnel cake. Continue reading
