AND YOU THINK that your church is screwed up. "Only 15 percent of members of the Church of Sweden say they believe in Jesus, and an equal number claim to be atheists according to the results of a recent survey." That would be a true pastoral challenge -- or should we say opportunity? ~ The Local

"WHAT WOMEN WANT, what women get" -- SPAM burgers -- coming soon to a Burger King near you (if you live in Japan). ~ Huff

CHROME BOOKS, the new netbooks/laptops featuring the Google Chrome operating system are now available. 8-second booting.

DON'T EVEN TRY to hide. Facebook is adding facial recognition software. ~ link

PETE EKSTRAND: "Language confusion: neeple or nipple?" ~ link

VIOLENCE incited by the Sudanese government is causing panic in the disputed central part of the country. This is not a good sign as the south prepares for independence from the north. ~ NY Times

"I’M AN EVANGELICAL REJECT" -- We're too people-pleasing worried about whether we fit the label. Just be it. ~ Kurt Willems

OH, NO! No more Swedish radio in Rockford, Illinois! Of course, there aren't any Swedish speakers left in Rockford. (Other foreign language radio programming is falling on hard times, too.)

HACKING INTO THE CIA website is like jumping into a "bait car" in the mall. Can you imagine what lethal viruses they share with anyone who gets in there? ~ link

AND WHATEVER HAPPENED TO . . . Bill Gothard? ~ link
