Husband sends wife a Spread Sheet of Excuses why She refuses to have Sex

2014 July 23
list-of-wifes-reasons-for-no-sex

“I have to be up early.”

“I’m watching my show. I don’t want to miss anything.”

“I might be getting sick.”

These are among one woman’s many ways of telling her husband she didn’t feel like having sex on a given night, according to a spreadsheet the husband made tracking their amorous activity between June 1 and July 18. The log – which includes three “yes” nights, italicized triumphantly – was emailed to the wife on Friday while she was on her way to the airport.

Her reaction? Posting it publicly to the relationships subreddit with a note that read in part, “I open it up, and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone. Attached is a SPREADSHEET of all the times he has tried to initiate sex since June 1st, with a column for my ‘excuses.’ …. According to his ‘document,’ we’ve only had sex 3 times in the last 7 weeks, out of 27 ‘attempts’ on his part.”

Though she has since removed the post and the spreadsheet, it elicited quite the reaction on Reddit, with hundreds of strangers weighing in on Reddit alone, and more than 2,000 people commenting on their relationship woes on Deadspin, which picked up the story.

The lesson here? Spreadsheets are a great way to lay out data in an easy-to-understand fashion, obviously.

10 reasons people don’t care about your content

2014 July 23
10-reasons-people-dont-care-about-your-content

Most brands are full of content creators.

Content creation was made easier thanks to the computers in our pockets connected to incredible networks such as Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn.

This means people want to start a blog or a Facebook page—they’ve seen the power of these channels and they want to “spread the word.”

So they start something, because doing so is easy.

Eventually, they call a digital strategist, because they realize that turning on a Facebook page doesn’t make them content creators.

I don’t tell them the things I’m about to tell you. I use much different language, but this is the gist of it. Here are the 10 reasons people don’t care:

1. The stories aren’t targeting the right people. When people say they want to spread the word, I ask: To whom? What people? People who just happen to find your content will leave, because they are not your intended audience.

2. The right people don’t care. When you’re spreading the word, the word has to be worth spreading. The message should resonate with the right people, or you’re wasting your time.

3. Someone said to post once a day, or once a week. Posting for the sake of it might make Google happy, but in the long run, it won’t make people happy. Once you lose people with bad content, it is hard to get them back.

4. If you’re posting on Facebook, the vast majority of the people who like the page don’t see it. A post goes to about 30 percent of your “likes.” Sometimes it goes to more: We once had a post reach to almost double the amount of people who “like” our page. It went viral. Did I mention that happened once? Yeah. Good times.

5. It has even less reach if you’re doing it on Twitter.

6. There is better content on most networks. Back to Facebook: Let’s say someone sees the post-there is a good chance it is surrounded by cute pictures or personal posts from friends. It is doomed to be visible but not seen. I like Facebook for certain things, but not for “spreading the word.” Incidentally, Facebook should be about “spreading the image.”

7. A focus on SEO and not people. SEO, or search engine optimization, means tailoring content so it can be found easily in search engines. Content isn’t found by search engines, it is found by people. It should be called search engine optimization for the people who want to see my content. SEOFTPWWTSMC is way too long, so it is SEO. Instead, think about what you want to say to the right people. Nail that part, and your SEO will be just fine.

8. Use more pictures than words. Not because people don’t read, because images and moving images look better on mobile technologies. People love pictures; moving pictures work even better.

9. We’re not The New York Times. I’m not a professional journalist, but I write for a university. My advice: Write short. Get to the point.

10. Stop trying to create new things. Stop trying to create a new Facebook page. A new Instagram account. Snapchat. The redesigned MySpace. Find content that tells your story, and use it. Just because we can take the picture or write the status update or tweet, it doesn’t mean we should.

US law against sagging pants : Is the Government Making Money off your Money Maker ?

2014 July 22
us-law-against-sagging-pants

So you thought wearing your trousers a bit low, exposing your briefs, makes you look slick? Councillors in Florida’s City Council of Ocala don’t think so and you could face a $500 fine or 6 month in prison if you think otherwise.

The law was passed as a deterrent to growing trend among young men to wear sagging pants. It permits law enforcement to detain offenders on the spot. However, police will also have the discretion to occasionally issue written warnings or issue fines but repeat offenders face the prospect of prosecution and jail.

Last week, the city council voted unanimously to approve a law that prohibits anyone on city property from wearing pants two inches below their natural waist. Human rights activists have labelled it a breach of freedom and an assault on individual liberties but this did not deter councillors from passing the law.

According to Councillor Rich, under the new law, both genders and ALL races will be subject to the ordinance, so there will be no profiling. This law is enforceable on all city-owned or leased property, including sidewalks, streets, parks, sports, recreation and public transportation facilities and parking lots.

Why was God so upset with Moses for striking the rock the second time in the desert?

2014 July 22
moses-striking-the-rock-in-the-desert-to-get-water

In Exodus, God commands Moses to strike a rock, and promises to make water flow in the desert for the people. Later on, God tells Moses to speak to a rock, promising to make water flow in the desert again. However, Moses strikes the rock again instead of speaking to it. Because of just this one thing, God tells Moses that he will no longer be permitted bring the people into the Promised Land.

Why was the punishment so harsh for what seems like a small infraction? Was there something greater or more symbolic going on here?

Exodus 17:6 ESV
Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, and the people will drink.” And Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel.

 

Numbers 20:8-12 ESV
“Take the staff, and assemble the congregation, you and Aaron your brother, and tell the rock before their eyes to yield its water. So you shall bring water out of the rock for them and give drink to the congregation and their cattle.” 9 And Moses took the staff from before the Lord, as he commanded him. 10 Then Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock, and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels: shall we bring water for you out of this rock?” 11 And Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock with his staff twice, and water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their livestock. 12 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe in me, to uphold me as holy in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land that I have given them.”

 

Answer :

Like the forefathers of those who eventually ended up in the Promised Land, Moses’s problem was that he failed to trust in God. In chapter 12 of Numbers, Aaron and Miriam oppose Moses as God’s messenger and their leader. As a result, they also are refused entry to the land (by death, like Moses).

Moses’ problem wasn’t that he misinterpreted God or thought that since he’d hit the rock before that it was okay to do it again. Rather, Moses was utterly rejecting God and trying to take control.

  1. Moses was violent. He struck the rock twice when God just said to speak to it.
  2. Moses was usurping God’s place. He said to the people, “hear now, you rebels: shall we bring water for you out of this rock?” The emphasis is technically mine, but it was already there. Moses didn’t say “God will bring water out of this rock for you.” He (with Aaron, evidently) took God’s place and assured them that he would do it for them.

Verse 12 is pretty revealing as to the nature of Moses’s crime:

“Because you did not believe in me,” (emphasis mine)

Moses totally failed to trust God for the life-supplying water. He tried to take matters into his own hands. He was supposed the be the leader, but also the servant of God. He tried to usurp God’s place.

Additionally, I think there might be some symbolism to the rock. Back in Exodus 17, God tells Moses

“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, and the people will drink” Ex. 17:6

To quote my study bible notes on this, “An astonishing statement. In this trial God takes the place of the accused, standing in the dock.”

1 Corinthians 10:4 explains that “the Rock was Christ.” In striking the Rock, Moses was striking God for the people. Christ was punished for the nourishment of his people.

Back to Numbers, it seems that maybe the situation is similar here. God has provided a rock (Christ) that will bring forth water (salvation) for his people. This is somewhat speculative, but it seems that this time, Moses is in the position of the people. He’s supposed to ask God for salvation, to request the water from the rock. But instead, he takes up his previous position as judge, and strikes the rock (Christ). Before, he was commanded to. This time, he willingly strikes his Savior.

It’s interesting to note, in support of that theory, that the Hebrew word used for “strike” is the same in both cases (link), and the words for rock are quite similar (Numbers word & Exodus. word)

Ultimately of course, it’s because Moses did not believe that God could bring the water out of the rock, and hit it himself. (perhaps he was trying to knock loose rocks to open up a stream, or he thought that his staff held some special Mosaic power – either way, he thought he was the key to the equation)

“What does it mean to delight yourself in the Lord (Psalm 37:4)?”

2014 July 21
by Daniel Chege
how-to-delight-in-the-lord

Answer: Psalm 37:4 says, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Taking delight in the Lord means that our hearts truly find peace and fulfillment in Him. If we truly find satisfaction and worth in Christ, Scripture says He will give us the longings of our hearts. Does that mean, if we go to church every Sunday, God will give us a new Rolls Royce? No. The idea behind this verse and others like it is that, when we truly rejoice or “delight” in the eternal things of God, our desires will begin to parallel His and we will never go unfulfilled. Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things [the necessities of life] will be given to you as well.”

Many delight in wealth, status, material possessions, and other temporary things of this world, but they are never satisfied. They never truly get what they want, hence the reason they are always wanting more. This is the lesson King Solomon learned in his pursuit of earthly treasure: “Everything is meaningless!” (Ecclesiastes 1:2). On the other hand, delighting in the Lord is true treasure indeed: “Godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:6).

First John 2:15–17 says, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.” We will never be deeply fulfilled or “happy” with the things this world has to offer. If we place our joy and hope in God first, He will meet all of our needs. He will even grant our wants, as our hearts’ desires begin to match up with His will. If we truly place priority on the Lord, chances are our heart’s greatest desire will not be a brand new Rolls Royce, but eternal treasures in Christ.

This world can never satisfy our deepest longings, but if we choose to delight in God’s way, He will always provide above and beyond our expectations. Jesus said, “Whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:14).
