We are in a War on Faith, because Faith justifies anything and ISIS takes it to extremes. But in the end they are just a bigger version of Christian-dominated school boards that mess with the teaching of Evolution, or Mormon sponsors of anti-gay-marriage measures, or my Hebrew school teacher, an adult who slapped me as a 12-year-old for some unremembered offense against his faith.

Hm. The covenant of Noah is about two paragraphs before this part (King James Version) which is used for various justifications of slavery and discrimination against all sorts of people because they are said to bear the Curse of Ham. If folks wanted to use the Bible to justify anything ISIS says is justified by God's words in the Koran, they could easily do so.

18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

I'm about two year in (two weeks shy) and my last check (last month) said 8-9 more years at the rate I'm using it. I was told at installation that five is the average. I think the only time I'm paced any more is when I sleep, just due to my natural sleeping rate being lower than the floor they've set. I'll have to ask.

Used the card about a week after I got it due to my place of employment at the time. Haven't used it at an airport.

Just another reminder to use strong passwords, password managers, and change them often. It's a pain, but it's the reality of the digital world.

What good is a password manager when the answers to your security questions are public knowledge?

Who says you need to tell the truth on those questions?

Q: "What is your mother's maiden name?"
A: "Purple monkey dishwasher."

Damnit, time to change the security question on the password manager for my luggage.

You know, the difference between this company and the Titanic is that the Titanic had paying customers.
