fanatic christians

http://www.truthbeknown.com/naked.htm

"It's a group of fanatic Christians who are destined to take over America for the purpose of establishing a theocracy, much like the Taliban in Afghanistan. It's designed to teach children to kill whoever will not convert. They must kill all 'Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, gays and anyone who advocates the separation of church and state.'"

Allison
Being born with no arms or legs, I had always wondered what my purpose was. At five years old I began asking God, "Why?" Over time, the answer has been slowly revealed to me. This blog is the story of my life as well as the lessons that I have learned while living the life that God has given me. It is my prayerful hope that you discover purpose in your own life by drawing closer to the One who created us all just the way He intended to - beautifully.

another one from Babu

Seems like a just one of those touching stories....but sometimes it is the

>
>He almost didn't see the old lady, stranded on the side of the road,but
>even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled
>up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering
>when he approached her.
>
>Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to
>help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn't look
>safe; he looked poor and hungry. He could see that she was frightened,
>standing out there in the cold.He knew how she felt. It was that chill
>which only fear can put in you.
>
>He said, 'I'm here to help you, ma'am. Why don't you wait in the car where
>it's warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson."
>
>Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad
>enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack,
>skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire.
>But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt. As he was tightening up the lug
>nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him
>that she was from St. Louisana was only just passing through. She couldn't
>thank him enough for coming to her aid. Bryan just smiled as he closed her
>trunk.
>
>The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right
>with her. She already imagined all the awful things that could have
>happened had he not stopped. Bryan never thought twice about being paid.
>This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows
>there were plenty who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his
>whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way.
>
>He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she
>saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they
>needed, and Bryan added, "And think of me." He waited until she started her
>car and drove off.
>
>It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for
>home, disappearing into the twilight. A few miles down the road the old

>chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy

>The old lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she
>never let the strain and aches change her attitude. The old lady wondered

>After the old lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill.

and yet again

A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and
noticed he had his collar on backwards. The little boy asked why he
wore his collar that way.

The man, who was a priest, said, "I am a Father."
The little boy replied, "My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that."

The priest looked up from his book and answered "I am the Father of
many."

The boy said, "My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren, and he
doesn't wear his collar that way."

The priest, getting impatient, said, "I am the Father of hundreds" and
went back to reading his book.

The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said,

"Maybe you should wear your pants backwards instead of your collar."

How to Wake Up As Soon As the Alarm Goes Off

Do you have trouble waking up on time in the mornings despite desperate attempts to do so? Are you afraid you might lose your job or fail a class because you can’t get up in time? While most people can simply set an alarm clock and get up at the desired time, almost everybody has trouble rousing themselves at some point, and many people frequently sleep through their alarms. If you’re chronically late for work, or if you just need to make sure you don’t miss your flight early tomorrow morning, read on.
Steps
Get enough sleep. It’s hard to drag yourself out of bed after one night of inadequate sleep, and chronic sleep deprivation (a sleep deficit) makes the task even harder. Determine how much sleep you need and make sure to get about that amount each night.
Get into a rhythm. Your body’s clock follows a circadian rhythm. If your rhythm is set properly, you may be able to regularly wake up refreshed without an alarm, but if it’s not you’ll wake up groggy or even sleep through your alarm altogether. Make an effort to get to bed and to get up at about the same times every day. If you work changing shifts or otherwise have to adjust your schedule, you’re rhythm will be thrown off for a while, but you can reset it over a few days.
Adjust for your sleep cycles. The typical human sleep cycle is 90 minutes. Adjust the time you wake up or the time you go to bed so that you sleep for some multiple of 90 minutes (6, 7.5 or 9 hours, for example), and you’ll wake up more refreshed.
Sleep well. Eight hours of sleep won’t help you much if you don’t get quality sleep. Minimize disturbances that may wake you up in the night:
Get a comfortable bed
Set your thermostat so you’ll sleep at a comfortable temperature
Reduce external noises by closing windows, turning off the TV, or using a device that generates constant “white noise.”
Consider getting a larger bed or sleeping in separated beds if your spouse or partner wakes you up with his or her tossing and turning. Better yet, get a mattress that absorbs motion and will not be felt by your partner.
Abstain from caffeine and alcohol, especially at night.
Read the related wikiHows for more tips on getting to sleep and getting quality sleep.
Get the right alarm clock. Some people need a very loud, harsh alarm, some can’t wake up to the radio, and some find that gradual waking works best. Experiment to find the alarm clock that’s best for you.
Position your alarm clock so that you have to get out of bed to turn it off. It’s quite common to reach over to the nightstand, turn off the alarm, and go back to sleep without even remembering doing so. If you have to get out of bed and walk across the room, however, you’re more likely to stay awake.
Set multiple alarm clocks. If you know that one alarm will not wake you up permanently, set more than one to go off. You can set them both for the same time if you have trouble hearing just one, or you can set the second to go off 5-10 minutes after the first. You may find it helps if they make different sounds.
Get someone to help you. If your spouse or partner doesn’t have trouble waking up on time, ask him or her to help you wake up and to make sure you stay awake. A reliable roommate might also be willing to help if you give him or her a few bucks or cook breakfast. You could also ask a friend to call you in the morning and talk to you for a minute or so until you become fully awake. If you can’t find a reliable friend who’s willing to help, get a wakeup call. Long a staple in hotels, wakeup calls to your home or cell phone are now available by subscription or for one-time calls.
Get out of bed if you wake up a few minutes before your alarm rings. Because of nightly hormonal changes natural sleep cycles, many people find that they wake up a few minutes before their alarm goes off. If this occurs, consider it a sign that you’re ready to get up. If you go back to sleep to wait for the alarm, you’ll likely feel more drowsy.
Brighten up your bedroom. The body naturally wakes up faster when it’s light out, so keep your curtains open to use the sun to help you awake. If you need to wake up when it’s dark, or if you live in a dreary, cloudy place, consider using a timer on your bedroom lamp or getting a light box or a bedside dawn simulator.
Get pumped. When you wake up, get out of bed immediately, switch on some music (the more energetic the better), and get moving. Do some calisthenics or quickly go about your morning routine.
Take a shower as soon as you get out of bed, alternating the temperatures between hot and cold to get your circulation going. Use shower gels with ingredients such as lemon or peppermint essential oils to help make you more alert. If a shower is not possible, try putting a couple of drops of essential oils onto a tissue and inhaling their fragrance. Some alarm clocks now have aromatherapy components built in, as well.
Have a drink. Drinking some water as soon as you wake up stimulates the body and will help you stay awake. If you need something stronger, try coffee or herbal tea containing dragonfruit or grapefruit. If you have trouble making it out of your bedroom without coffee, consider putting your coffeemaker in your room and setting the timer so that a cup of Joe will be waiting for you when you wake up.
Use a very loud alarm like the windup clock pictured above. Place the clock inside a kitchen pot or other metal container turned upside down.



Tips
If you know that you find it difficult to function in the mornings, prepare as much as you can the night before, so that you have less to worry about when you wake up.
Before you go to sleep, try telling yourself what time you want to wake up. It may sound strange, but often works.
You might want to give yourself a tiny boost in the morning by having something to look forward to. It doesn't have to be something big, but just something that will brighten your day and make you want to get out of bed.
Splash your face with cold water. The cold water will wake you up, and you can get a move on from there.
Make sure that your alarm is properly set before going to bed.
Make sure to remember all the reasons you need to get right out of bed.



Warnings
Sleep aid drugs may help you to get to sleep and to get a better night’s rest, but they may also leave you too drowsy to wake up when you need to. They can also be addictive, so avoid using them if possible, especially over long periods of time.
Don’t go back to bed. After you’ve been up and moving for a while, it’s sometimes tempting to lie down “just for a minute or so.” Don’t do it; all your preparations will be down the drain if you fall asleep unexpectedly. Your tiredness will soon pass if you stay up.
Chronic difficulty sleeping or frequent tiredness may be caused by a sleep disorder or other medical condition. Check with your doctor if these symptoms persist.

fanatics r a menace everywhere whether they r christians, hindus or muslims.

Isnt it strange (or not so strange) that most Buddhists dun become fanatics. Cos Buddhism is a philosophy...a way of life. Not a religion.

I read just about everything over there---I don't get the fanatic bit!
I highly doubt that U can match Christians with the Taliban! U are on 2 different sides---
One teaches love--In the name of God
the other teaches murder--in the name of God.
I don't belong to any religion--but I do have my beliefs, and alot of faith.
poor allison-it must be difficult!
