therblig Re:Why would FIFA have this data? (128 comments)

I believe it is because there are temporary and lifetime bans handed out to dangerously unruly football fans in Europe. The passport information is to help enforce these bans.

Nine Words From Science Which Originated In Science Fiction

therblig Re:other potential things (433 comments)

A portal as a connection between to two points that are not contiguous in normal space is a concept exclusive to science fiction.

Actually, the concept of a portal as a connection between non-contiguous spaces existed in Ancient Near East mythology, and more recently, the term has existed in Christian practice in at least two ways. One is the grave as the portal to the next life. The other is the idea of a portal between earth and heaven that opens during prayer and/or worship.

McCain Asks Supporters To Campaign On Blogs

therblig Re:Okay. Here's *MY* blog entry, Senator (889 comments)

But above all else, I NEVER NEVER NEVER thought I would see a man who was a torture victim and POW stand up and support that very torture by HIS OWN COUNTRY.

I'm with you on liking the 2000 version of McCain better than this one, but I thought that one thing that made him stand out from the other Republicans (other than Ron Paul) during the debates was his opposition to torture and, as Mitt Romney liked to call them, "enhanced interrogation techniques." When did he change his tune on that?
