Whole lotta shakin'/Who's more well-liked than you?

We had an earthquake.

Matthew said, when I went to see what was shaking the whole house, "Dad! What was that!? It's freaking me out!"

I think that wraps it up nicely.

In other news...

Hey people who believe/don't believe stuff! Ever wonder how popular or unpopular you really are? Here's a handy chart from Gallup* that not only shows who's more well-liked than you, but also includes percentages, so you can see exactly how much more. (Thanks Dave, for the heads up!)

I think this chart shows** that people's tolerance for any group is in reverse proportion to the perception of how strongly held its beliefs are. And I've created my own chart to further illustrate this point:

**With the exception of the Baptist ranking, which I'm pretty sure is an anomaly. See second chart, below, for further illustration.

*Here's the link to the entire Gallup article. Which is really focused more on America's feelings toward Catholics, but isn't as interesting (to me) as the broader analysis.

Yes, we have no blognanas

...we have no blognanas. Today.

Sorry, folks. I'm tired. I'm the workin'est unemployed guy you know, and this/last week really took it out of me.

You know what I like? I like guitar music. It's a good thing. That is all.
