Reader's Digest

A little digesting of the very small amount of reading that I've been doing lately:

An interesting news article about Bangladesh: it is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Wow.

"Fallen but Forgiven:" a blogger contemplates weaknesses and grace that are brought out through her blogging.

Some interesting facts about blogging:
A few of them are ...
  • As of October 2005, Technorati is now tracking 19.6 Million weblogs
  • The total number of weblogs tracked continues to double about every 5 months
  • The blogosphere is now over 30 times as big as it was 3 years ago, with no signs of letup in growth
  • About 70,000 new weblogs are created every day
  • About a new weblog is created each second
  • 2% - 8% of new weblogs per day are fake or spam weblogs
  • Between 700,000 and 1.3 Million posts are made each day
  • About 33,000 posts are created per hour, or 9.2 posts per second
  • An additional 5.8% of posts (or about 50,000 posts/day) seen each day are from spam or fake blogs, on average
If you haven't seen it, be sure to check out THIS trailer for the Chronicles of Narnia. It's different than the one we just saw in the theater, and it shows even more of how great this movie promises to be (especially the animals -- how about Mr. Beaver's facial expressions!). (hat tip: Melodee)

Finally, in light of the impending end of the world, be sure to check out these "Rapture Safety Cards."
