Terrible Swede the "Earthy" Lutheran Blog vs The Largest Filipino on Earth vs "The Fluffy"
Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

In the aircraft research lab...

...where I work part-time (school full-time) we have four freshman-to-sophomore guys who said, "Vin Diesel is gay. He can't act." Yet at lunch time they were discussing wedding dresses with our lab manager. After she left, I asked the newbies, "You said, 'Vin Diesel is gay', yet you're talking about bride's dresses. Tell me again: Who's gay?" The upperclassmen, grad students and I had a nice laugh. Welcome to the lab!

My profile...

...is to the right. I cycled many times to get that random question.

Pastor Paul T. McCain (Another Kung Fu Master) OR Cyberbrethren AND Pastor Joel Brondos (Yet Another Kung Fu Master) OR Collarbones...

...remind us that it is the anniversary of our Augburg Confessions! He also reminded us of the LCMS's anniversary as well a while back. These compendium of books were influencial in my becoming Lutheran almost 5 years ago. It is truly by grace that I am saved and NOT by any works that I do. This is most certainly true. I can never express my gratitude FROM the life of Law-Gospel-Law.

Some premilitary...

...history of the Terrible Swede. When I was living in colorful Colorado I went through the process of competing for a nomination for the United States Air Force Academy. I had the academics, the sports and the leadership, I just had to nail the congressional interviews with U.S. Senators and Representatives from Colorado. They give you a battery of questions ranging from military ethics to military history. One of the questions was: "If you were an officer and had a POW who had vital information to save your trroops, how would you get that information?" I responded, "I would torture that prisoner to get the information." "Wrong, answer, Mr. Olson. Sorry, that response has disqualified you for the Air Force Academy."

Apparently, there are civilians and military officers who had the "right" response. Whatever! Rumsfeld and whoever else, especially officers, should resign for the tortures! It's complete bullsh_t to say, "Oh, it will affect the morale of the troops." No, it won't. The troops will get the mission done regardless of "feelings".

...beer lovers! I was made privy to this from my research lab. You should drink a beer while looking at it. Or drink your buddy's!

The Swan...

...of Feet. This is what has happened to my hot, blonde wife's right foot. She got her cast removed today. It is indeed a beautiful foot! She has an arch! Created by one of the most skillful surgeons in the world. Babe!

One down...

...two more to go.

CPH offers a reprint(?) of this short classic by Pr. Robert Preus (Kung Fu Master with strong Kung Fu). I found the compliments here "Getting into the Formula of Concord" (in Russian!) and not here "Getting into the Story of Concord". I love the discussion questions of these books!

If Dan, the Geologist (Strong Kung Fu - can break rocks!) OR Random Thoughts of a Confessional Lutheran were President...

...he'd make me Secretary of Labor. My first action would be to dissolve existing f_cking unions and ban all future f_cking unions: teachers, machinists/mechanics, engineers, electricians, etc.

The Scientific Method...

...is going the way of the dinosaur. Here is what Pastor Joel Brondos (Yet Another Kung Fu Master) OR Collarbones has observed about the Scientific Method. I've never heard of SM in any of my university level physics courses.

I love...

...Math! I found this on Bunnie's (Strong Kung Fu for a girl!) blog. Math is what I study here at Wichita State University, courtesy of the State of Kansas and Cessna when I got laid off over a year and a half ago.

...the most compassionate, the most loving thing to say is: "Go to Hell." Pastor Williams taught me this truth.

...Nick and Tonya Cordt on your wedding! Welcome to the (beep)ed up family! Also, thanks for the introduction at the rehearsal dinner as the "Swedish Filippino Jew, whose neither Swedish nor Jewish".

Where did...

...Dart OR Tentatio OR Wears Faggoty White Uniforms (Kung Fu Master in training - can break seawaves) go? I bet he's busy with the new baby, wife and job/school. I gave him sh_t because he's a Navy guy (a little inservice military rivalry). Anyways, I enjoyed reading his blog. I refuse to remove the link!

I love my HOT wife

…especially when she’s blond. This past Saturday when we were visiting Erica’s old church, St. Andrews “Evangelical” Lutheran, Wichita, KS (Weak Kung Fu taught by a Weak Kung Fu Master - Wish-I-Was-A-Pastor communes here), for her parents 25th anniversary she was asked, “What you’ve been doing?” Instead of answering with, “Been busy with school and work.” Or even, “OK”. She said, “I’ve been concentrating on my feet.” That made me smile and eventually laugh. It reminded me of the blond joke: “Breath in. Breath out.” only with “Left foot. Right foot.”

I mowed the lawn of...

...Immanuel “Evangelical” Lutheran, mother LCMS church of Wichita, KS (two Kung Fu Masters preach here) a few weeks ago. A manly activity that I haven’t enjoyed in years, since I moved from a house to an apartment. I lived with my little brother, Jason “Punk” Olson, while I was courting Erica. As I was mowing, I found a cornerstone of our church that said, “Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church.” From now on I am going to insert “Evangelical” back into the Lutheran Churches on my blog and hope Lutheran churches everywhere read this and pull their heads out of their asses. I can’t remember why “evangelical” was removed. Dan, the Geologist (Strong Kung Fu - can break rocks!) OR Random Thoughts of a Confessional Lutheran reminded me that it was probably Pietists. (Beep) pietists! I suspect "evangelical" is another “dirty” word among contemporary worship advocates Lutherans as well.
