I just read a very interesting blog post, about an extreme way to pay off debt. The girl who wrote this post went and lived on the street until her debt was payed off, working two jobs and showering at the gym.
So I was at our morning programmer's coffee and the topic of religion drifted onto the agenda. We started talking about how much misinterpretation of hebrew scriptures has made it into religious doctrine. The Virgin Mary... I mean, come on! Married and still a virgin? Apparently the word for "virgin" and "maiden" are pretty similar, if not the same. Check out the Wikipedia entry for more details. Anyway, there's a pretty funny video on YouTube which is an animation based on how ridiculous a literal translation of the Book of Job is. Check it out!
