I was kinda getting concerned about KSA’s failure thus far to slaughter AAAAALLL the children of Yemen yet - but the president’s going to veto!

Pro-life presidents are the best. #ThanksTrump

“US Senate to hold vote to block arms deal with Saudi Arabia”
twitter.com/i/events/11414…
It’s such a wonderful feeling to know I can never go on hajj because I’ve trashed Saudi Arabia and MbS so much on Twitter.

Much ra7ma. Wow ummah. Very mutadayyin.
Thomas Friedman would be allowed to do hajj before me.

Bet.

My 11 year old daughters current art project. ❤️

#Blessed #GodIsGood
Got the skinny on this picture. My daughter says this picture represents most of the world.

”Dad those aren't her brains, they're waves. Shes like most of this world, BRAIN WASHED”

😂😂😂

My daughter was woke before she was born. 🙏🏻
My daughter says she doesn’t like it and wants to redo. I think its awesome and want to frame it. She told me no it’s not good enough lol.

I wonder where she gets the perfectionist from... 😬😁

Its a thought provoking image which is the tail tail sign of an amazing artist.

So a funny thing that I mentioned in passing - after I had my nice wholesome “just sittin’ here by the goddam Pacific Ocean, waow, #blessed” moment at the 🌉, I was randomly walking my way out and ended up at Sea Cliff, which I believe is where rich people live
The folks who live here have an incredible view from their backyards, and the roads are in obviously good condition. But as you walk south...
The conditions of the street start getting progressively worse, in a surprisingly (to me) short amount of time. Within minutes you see cracks and potholes, and a few minutes later still you start seeing homeless people lying on the ground

So what am I cooking today? 🥣😋😃

Dinner for guests and I've been given a task. Prepare something veg for them. I think would be Benaras Ka Babu today. A very special Paneer gravy straight from the land of ghats.
Khoya-Makhana Matar Paneer
खोए-मखाने का मटर पनीर
Ingredients:
Paneer
Khoya
Peas
Onion
Ginger
Garlic
Green chilies
Tomatoes
Black cardamom
Green cardamom
Jeera
Shahi jeera
Cloves
Javitri
Black pepper
Bay leaves
Cashews
Kesar
Kewra water
Makhana (Foxnuts)
What's the difference between Jeera and Shahi Jeera? What you see on the left is normal Jeera used everyday. On the right is Shahi Jeera. It is smaller in size and dark in color compared to other one. It's far more aromatic too.

For those of us who are Christians, this is the day--THE day--that is both the evocation and commemoration of our faith. The sorrow of #HolyWeek is past and the joy of #Easter is here. #Alleluia alleluia.

On Easter we re-dedicate ourselves to Christ's selflessness and love.🌿
Jesus offers us a message of love that transcends death. On #Easter, as the gospel tells us, Mary Magdalene went to Christ's tomb & found he was not there. She is the one who announces the Resurrection. In her we see ourselves, opening our minds & hearts to Christ's teachings. 🌿
The #Resurrection that we celebrate on #Easter is our annual baptism and re-birth into our faith. It is the story of how much we are loved by Christ and how the one and only thing Christ asks of us in return is to love others as we are loved by him.

Can we do this?
We must.🌿

CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER:

🇵🇭 Bureau of Fisheries and Director EDUARDO GONGONA : Orders Filipino fishermen to stay away from Scarborough Shoal

🇮🇩 Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries SUSI PUDJIASTUTI : Orders intruding Chinese fishing vessels to be sunk or blown off the water
Considered to be one of the most bad-ass government officials of Indonesia, (and of this planet) Pudjiastuti gained the respect of her countrymen and the world for for ordering the seizure and sinking of foreign fishing vessels intruding into Indonesia's fishing grounds.
Yep, that's her doing stretches on the deck of an Indonesian warship.☝️

...and this is her taking lying under a machine gun, while smoking 👇

I have written a short story entitled “Rational Approaches to Counterterrorism Strategy on Twitter: An Experience.”

I hope you enjoy it.
I dedicate this novella to @LibyaLiberty and @HindMakki.
It’s always a “Mike,” for some reason. I have an entire album of lunatic trolls screaming at me called “People of the Internet.”

About 50% are Mikes.

I know, I know...correlation isn’t causality, but still. Fascinating.

YOU GUYS! I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW.

I just received, by divine intervention, the comedic catharsis that everyone reading my Twitter knows I desperately needed.

Fun "college town life" short (short) story time!!!
Picture this: it is 4 am, outside my office building on campus. I am taking a cigarette break before I get back to grading.

(Preemptive strike like the Bush doctrine but without the war crimes - I have a PhD so I'm smart enough to know that smoking is "actually bad" for me)
(Now is not the time for a "well, actualllllly" enlightening pathos-laden public health PSA / Dr. Phil intervention attempt in my mentions. I am trying to quit smoking, so trust me...I know smoking is idiotic)

Wow. I've been harassed online before, but @teemedlin- I have no idea who you are, nor was I at a conference/meet-up/event w/ you 4 days ago. Lying about this is next level- also, ++ photo is from my @NewCo article I published years ago/from a conference 3 years ago. Get a life.
Seriously, @teemedlin why on Earth would you post this? I'll wait.
This is fucking unreal, dude.

Here comes the much awaited thread of the top ten lesson that I learned in 2018. Some of them I knew already, but they became even more important this year. Every experience, good or bad, is a lesson and we only fail if we miss the lesson. Here we go #My2018Lessons
Lesson 1: 1. There is a strength in being outside the establishment or someone that is seen as being naive or new to the culture/game because only you can have the audacity to play the game differently from how it has been played historically. #My2018Lessons #blessed #grateful
Lesson 2: Being an underdog and a misfit gives you the freedom to try things that no one else has ever dreamt of. This may attract criticism and that’s okay, as long as you are authentic. Just keep doing YOU, the underdog. #My2018Lessons #blessed #grateful

Wife just reminded me that she witnessed me teach myself to ride a bike along this stretch of park when we were 13. Feeling emotional thinking about it; it feels like a vivid metaphor for the way I have had to teach myself so many things that people usually learn from family
But also how cool that this woman has been next to me for 15 years? I think all in all I am net #blessed
We are here having dinner with her parents, who disapproved of our relationship for a decade - which was the primary source of misery and despair in our lives during that time. Now we’re here laughing and joking with each other over ribs and beer. Life is such a wild trip.

2018 was a year of loss & pain (I cried a lot); a year of laughter & celebration and a year of learning & growth. This week I will share some of the highs/lows, as well as opportunities & lessons. I’ll also share picture of some of the phenomenal people I have met. Thread 1:
Losing our 20 year old son to a car accident in Feb is something that we will never recover from. Getting notification that i was shortlisted for VC job just 2 days before the burial and then coming back to work to face the excruciating recruitment process was just too much!
Thank God I survived! I am grateful to all the colleagues & friends - for the hugs, encouraging messages, reassuring conversations & smiles. They helped me keep my head up. Thanks to all the very many amazing people at UCT who came through for me during my time of need 🙏🏾

From a family of privilege, @GeorgeHWBush enlisted at 18. At just short of 19 he became a Navy pilot. At 20 he was shot down over the Pacific by a Japanese fighter. In short, like so many other millions, he exemplified the #GreatestGeneration
He loved baseball. And was good at it. Hell, he loved sports. Of all kinds. Even horseshoes.
This man from Yale grew to love @TAMU placing his library and papers there. He & Barbara could be seen all over campus & at sporting events & cheering on @AggieFootball He will rejoin his beloved Barbara at their resting place on campus in the coming days.

Seldom is @jaketapper this wrong - shows the incredible disconnect at CNN
@jaketapper Let's start with the first official CNN statement about the bomb-looking devices.

It blatantly blames Trump for the bombings.

And Sarah Sanders for good measure.
Then, you have articles like this.

Blaming Trump for the "real consequences" of the bombings.

Turning 30 today has made me super reflective lately, thinking about what I’ve learned each year so far in my life:
1 - Family is the foundation of everything.
2 - You go much further when you listen more than you speak

Midnight trip to A&E because I cut my finger doing the washing up. Yes mate!!!
I've got it wrapped in fucking packing tape. Just so fucking delighted. And just realised I left my wallet at home. #blessed
There was a crazy amount of blood and some light gore. It's super minor in the grand scheme and something I'm very embarrassed to go wait in an emergency dept for 4 hours with BUT my fingerprint is no more so I can restart my life as a cat burglar.

Why I believe in a personal, real God, and why I believe he/she/they love me: too many times in my life, things have worked out for me way better than they should have.

I don't understand why me, when so many suffer, but I sincerely believe I'm #blessed
Today was another crazy thing that just worked out. I'm going through a rough time and through complete irresponsibility and poor planning, I ended up $310 in the hole in my checking account. Last night I drove to work wondering if I would make it there, I was so low on gas.
Last pay period, I had been sick and my kids had been sick and I missed work. My paycheck was going to be unusually small, so I had bills to pay and I didn't know how I was going to pay them. I went to work knowing my paycheck would be direct deposited at midnight and

“What do you do?” has been asked. Writer and speaker, okay. “What do you write about?” Disaster averted by the server taking orders. For now. #Exvangelical
I have shamelessly ordered a nine-ounce Malbec. I’m here with my parents and their small group; they wanted to introduce me.
Snagged the lone olive in the salad. #Blessed

Theodicy (why people suffer) quick thread.
1) “fallen world” is really Christian language. Don’t have time to unpack now, but will later sometime.
2) here’s one thing with some of my theodicy in it: forward.com/life/faith/383…

I took a walk around Portage+Main today! I know lots of Winnipeggers experience it from their cars, so join me as I go on an adventure!

1st thing spotted while approaching on NW corner, full bike rack. 21% of 'peggers currently bike regularly. #portageandmain
My quest: make it across the intersection to the BMO building! It's so pretty. I've lived here for 17 yrs, just realized I'd never actually been there. So, you know, there's a hint that something's not working.
Starting the clock! ⏱️

3/ Ok, so 1st thing to note, you can't "just go one extra block" around, when that block doesn't actually connect. Here's Lombard, but I can't reach it from here on the W side of Main.
I see you over there Lombard!
