Fact of the Week and the Last Crusade

Fact of the Week Boys and Girls!!

In the lobby of a Hyatt hotel, a one-day pass for wireless Internet connection cost $10.95. Not cheap, but standard for nice hotels. In the hotel’s ballroom, however- where corporate conferences are typically held-a one-day pass costs $300. Economists refer to such a scenario as price discrimination. Economists also refer to this as some ol’ Bullsh**.

They got the map a long time ago

This was an article published in, a well respected newspaper in Great Britain. I also saw this article on CNN.

In a discovery straight out of an Indiana Jones movie, archaeologists believe they have uncovered one of the lost mines of King Solomon.

The vast copper mine lies in an arid valley in modern-day Jordan and was created in the 10th century BC - around the time Solomon is believed to have ruled over the ancient Hebrews.

The mines are enormous and would have generated a huge income for the king, who is famed for bringing extraordinary wealth and stability to the newly-united kingdom
of Israel and Judah.

The announcement will today reopen the debate about how much of the Old Testament is myth and how much is history.

According to the Bible, Solomon was the third king of Israel. The son of King David, he was renowned for his wisdom, the size of his harem and the splendour of his kingdom.

During his reign, he is said to have accumulated a huge fortune from mining and trading, some of which was spent on building the grand temple and opulent palace of Jerusalem.

Archaeologists and treasure-hunters have searched for the mines for more than a century since the best-selling Victorian novel, King Solomon's Mines by H Rider Haggard, claimed they could hold a treasure of gold and diamonds.

But now, it seems the real version could have been closer to home, supplying the king with copper.

The ancient mine was found in a desolate region south of the Dead Sea in southern Jordan in an area called Khirbat en-Nahas, which means 'ruins of copper' in Arabic.

The region was known in the Old Testament as the Kingdom of Edom. By Solomon's time, it had become a vassal state, paying tribute to Jerusalem.

Digs at the site in the 1970s and 1980s suggested metalworking began there in the 7th century, long after the time of Solomon.

But Dr Thomas Levy, of the University of California, San Diego, and Mohammed Najjar, of Jordan's Friends of Archaeology, have dated it to the 10th century BC.

Dr Levy said: 'We have evidence that complex societies were indeed active in the 10th and 9th centuries BC and that brings us back to the debate about the historicity of the Bible narratives related to this period.

'We can't believe everything ancient writings tell us. But this research represents a confluence between the archaeological and scientific data and the Bible.'

The ancient site contains around 100 buildings, including a fortress, in the middle of 24 acres of land covered in black slag. The mine works are covered with trials and holes, and are big enough to be seen on Google Earth's satellite images.

The team also found ancient Egyptian artifacts at the site including a scarab and amulet from the 10th century BC.

When Solomon died, his kingdom was thrown into chaos and the Pharaoh Sheshonq is believed to have attempted to crush economic activity.

The findings are reported in today's issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

anyone Who's interested in Christian Apologetics (which is stuff like the article above) let me know, I've got all kinds of stuff I can Recommend.

Guess the Race Again

Some once again I it's time to to play Guess the Race, this article was simply too strange to pass up. This time I've taken out the obvius clues to the answer.

XXXXXX, XXXXXX (AP) -- A woman chopped the head off a man who allegedly tried to attack her and then paraded the head through a market in northern Xxxxx, police said Friday.

Police arrested the woman late Thursday after receiving calls from frightened witnesses who reported a blood-soaked woman holding a severed head was walking through the village, said police officer Xxxx Xxxxxx.

The woman, 35, told police she had gone to a nearby forest to cut grass for fodder for her cattle when a man attacked her from behind.

"In a bid to save her dignity she beheaded him with a sickle," (the cop) said, adding that the woman had bite marks on her neck and cheek.

The woman also told police that the man had been harassing and stalking her for three months and she had no regrets about killing him, he said, adding that she would probably be charged with culpable homicide.

So post where you think it's from and we'll see who can pick a psycho out of a crowd.
I'll post the answer in a few days with another addition of Guess the Race

A Better Awesome Artist You've Never Heard Of

DJ Kinetik is the next Awesome Artist You've never heard of. With beats for days and lyrics that take several rotations to catch everything in this cat is waitin to BLOW UP!!!!
Below is an interview I did with Kinetik. it is unabridged, unedited, and is SOUL SINCERE.

When did you first get into hip hop?
---I first remember "Mind Playing Tricks On Me" by Geto Boys back in like 1991 riding with my mom when we lived in Victorville, California riding in a Chevrolet Astro! And that was it man! Soon as I heard that beat and the way the dude was talkin (rappin) I was hooked. Then I paid more attention to hip hop over the years listening to Outkast, Do Or Die, Bone, Wu Tang Clan, then later Jay-Z real heavy and Snoop. But I didn't want to rap on other people's beats so I started making my own when I was 15 and wrote to them. Been in it ever since.

What were/are some of your influences?
---James Brown! Parliament/Funkadelic, The Police, J Dilla, Kanye, Jay-Z, 2Pac, Weather Report, Human League, Talking Heads, Radiohead, Rick Rubin...uh, John Coltrane, Bob James, George Benson, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke, Jaco Pastorius...Gershwin, Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Motown music, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder...Jodeci...uh Red Hot Chili ANYTHING! LOL

What do you think of the state of hip-hop and rap music today?
I think we need more soul in it. Lot of the music sounds plastic to me ya dig? Kinda like its just lacking that SOUL in it. But I like that people are seeing how far they can take the music...hell we got techno creepin in to the music, rock showing its face, more world instruments in the beats! Some people got orchestras on the records like Kanye, some just got FL Studio and some lil video games sounds and freak it like Solja Boy. That's what hip hop is to me! DOIN YOU!

Explain to me the story behind “nap town?”
Naptown is Indianapolis, Indiana (Called Indy, Nap, Circle City as well. I've been here since 2003 and this is my new city I call home and I love it! Living downtown looking at the skyline from my penthouse roof!

Also tell us about "We the Roses?"
We The Roses is from the line in Kanye's "Roses" on Late Registration. I believe in my family and keeping it soulfully together as the fabric of my being so instead of sending flowers, we the roses...the roses you would normally send to the house or funeral home or hospital. We GO there. We ARE there. WE the roses ya dig?

Listening to songs like “I Believe” it sounds like you have a strong faith, what can you tell us about it?
That's a track I got from my boy Rusty Redenbacher.

And basically I have faith in the Lord Almighty to guide my steps in His divine wisdom and glory...that's where my faith lies. And I secondly have faith in my hard work and dedication and creativity and honesty. Its taken me thus far with a lil confidence as well.

note from Lew: this is one of the first things I heard from Kinetik, check the video

Do you have any plans for a tour or an album?
---I try to keep stuff coming out on Facebook, just actually released Kinetik Presents...AD(illa)K Tribute To J Dilla. J Dilla is one of my favorite producers/emcees of all time. He passed a few years back so I'm just rapping on his music. All the beats are by him or from a J Dilla project. I freestyled most of the CD, about 75% of it. Took about 7 hours of recording split into 3 days over 3 weeks. Never forget the experience it was amazing.

Anything else you think our audience should know?
Check me out at and just stay tuned to Lew Lessons! Remember, you're gonna get honest SOUL MUSIC from me. I talk about my life that's how I keep it pure!

I'll continue to post new things from Kinetik as he makes them available. please leave a comment and show my man some love.

Ok so I know I haven't posted anything in a really long time but this was too good to ignore...and I also thought of something else to post like 5 minutes ago and now I forget.

So at work today I was sitting at my desk and I overheard a conversation involving the woman that sits behind me. She was talking to a section leader about the attendance of an associate. She said "He was written up" and then she repeated the words "written up" with disgust as if that were grammatically incorrect. Then she said "He was wrote up" as if that were grammatically correct. I literally LOL'd. And then it kind of made me sad...

I thought today i would shamelessly plug someone else's website for a change. Go to Toothpaste for Dinner for a new comic everyday. Here's a sample:

Thursday, October 9, 2008


It makes me sad that these people live less then 3 hours from me. BARACK THE VOTE!!!!

you gotta love the women who looks like she has one foot in the grave getting grilled on the number of interviews between Obama and Palin. and the other lady who sticks her face in the camera like 8 times.

Luckily these people live more then 8 hours away.

Points of interest
1. the old man yelling "Commy Faggot"
2. the 3 dozen old people yelling "get a job!"
3. all of the OLD people on the verge of death.

the elderly are a burden on society, they serve no purpose.

Note: the guy carrying the acorn sign has about 1/8 of a single fact, has all of the real info. also the thing about busing homeless people from state to state was actually done in ohio, BY THE REPUBLICAN SECRETARY OF STATE.

A personal update

So I want to apologize to everyone for the lack of updates on the site. Things have been kind of hectic in Lewis land. I moved offices, so I’m no longer downtown. Megan and I have been getting all of our financial affairs in order so that we can start the process of saving for a house. I’ve started working out regularly (I’ll post more about this in the coming days and weeks.)
Megan’s birthday is today, wish her happy birthday and I’ll post some pics of her big day soon.

A Lurker I’d love to meet.

This post is going out so someone exclusively in the mid-mid west. I’m not talking about Ohio or Indy or anywhere this close I’m talking to the person in Kansas or Nebraska or Oklahoma that loves the site. I know you’re out there, I can see you. You visit the site way to much not to be posting your opinions of things.
Let yourself be known. I’d love to do an interview with you. One that could actually stay up on the site without anyone bitching like a little girl about it. So please get in contact with me, if you’d prefer not to post a comment, email me at
