Bid For A Degree
Topic: City of Man

Reading: Tripp Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands
Enjoying: Rocky Road Ice Cream
Listening: Soular (HT: WHI)

No doubt you've heard about internet scams where you can buy a degree for $19.99. Personally, I don't know what the big deal is. I'm sure glad I got my Ph.D. in Religion from the prestigious Progressive Universal Life Church. I guess to be honest, I'm a bit miffed that I have to pay my current institution thousands of dollars for a measly M.Div, and I've already got a Ph.D. Sheesh.

But despite all of my angst, this might be taking it to a new level. Oklahoma Wesleyan University has put one year's tuition up for bid on eBay (HT: Slacker Manager). While I agree with Slacker Manager, I disagree with the update. We here at What the Thunder Said... think its a dumb way to get tuition no matter what clauses are added. You get what you pay for, no? Of course, that is why I am so proud of my Ph.D. in religion. Does anybody know of any job openings? And yes, that is Dr. Lund to you.

You know what's really sad? I can see you laughing the whole time you write a post like this. What is even sadder is that I laugh the whole time I read a post like this...Dr. Lund.

Transplanted from the artic blight of Minnesota to the sunny paradise of SoCal, I am attending school and learning to say "dude." I like to think of myself as equal parts surf rash, Batman, heavy metal, Levinas, poetic license, and reformational. Other than creating blund blogs, I enjoy reading, sporting, and socializing with serious and funny people.

How does Rowling and the "Harry Potter" series stack up against Tolkien and "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy?
Rowling is the new dreamweaver. She is reigniting literature and fantasy as we know it.
Tolkien is the undisputed favorite. We have not yet seen a match for his philogistic skill.
This is apples and oranges. You might as well compare ping pong with Halo. Two different animals.
Rowling wins, but only by one quidditch goal.
Tolkien still stands, but only barely. free polls
