At first, I thought this was an ironic counterpoint to polar bears trapped on shrinking ice floes, particularly given the record warmth for North America this past year, but the problem is apparently the same. Ice formation that used to keep the whales out of that area is no longer happening, and so like curious kittens, they are doing a little too much exploring. I'm sure the Arctic's seal population feels great sympathy for their plight....

Sad day yesterday.

I had never noticed before that in the long genealogy from Adam to Noah, it is Noah's father Lamech who lived 777 years. 777 is often used as a counterpoint to 666 - meant to signify heaven, or God, where 666 signifies satan. When you view this verse in light of that meaning, and consider that Noah was the one who rescued humanity from the floods, suddenly Lamech and Noah become foreshadows of Father God and Christ.

Quote Examples using Counterpoint

UMF #!$%@& the customers as of last year with the sellouts and single print multi-day tickets - now they are #!$%@&! with the city....Anonymous

The days keep ticking past the Sandy Hook horror and still there is no improvement to our gun control system. Let's act before the next massacre. It's time for the truly brave to stand up to the truly fearful, who will never feel well enough armed to be safe. Keeping our children safe is far more important than protecting the supposed rights of gun lovers. Its time to look past how gun manufacturers contribute a lot more political money then first graders. I am urging all those who care more for the right of children to live above the fear of gun control to speak up and act out. The NRA-ILA maintains a site making it easy to write representatives and media. It has long been one of their best tools to squash any new gun controls- let's use it to promote some sanity.Anonymous
Though I hold a very strong faith and relationship with my Creator I am aware that not all believe as I do... AND I also believe that's just fine...

I believe the Gov't should do what it was created to do which is care for the people NOT control them...Anonymous
Conflict/Resolution. Again, using the example above, in which melodic lines bump into one another in conflict, and then resolve, it should be understood that not everything in music has to be pretty. Life is a series of conflict/resolution sequences. In music, without conflict, or disharmony, there would be no contrast when the resolution came. A good story has to have a good antagonist. The stronger the antagonist, the more powerful the resolution, when the hero overcomes him. This can happen with melodic counterpoint, but it can also happen with emotional structure, where a piece could start darkly, but end triumphantly. - Lowell HohstadtAnonymous
Michael Moore finally says it out loud that he doesn't support the troops. Well, it took him a while to get there, but for once I can say I respect his honesty. For years, he has openly called the people who kill our soliders "freedom fighters" but then in the very same breath said he supported our troops. How could that be? It can't. Finally he said what was painfully clear to anyone who paid attention to his digusting diatribes and propganda. It must be liberating for him to have just a moment's reprieve from his lies.Anonymous
Nothing has been said, is more valuable than intelligence in the service of good farm management and nourished by the awe of God. Not good neighborliness without equanimity, it is a good education that will judge the behavior of each, without divine assistance, no success wait. Similarly, trade with others not reported since, based on virtue, it sucks for the sole benefit Supreme compensation. There is a better brand of piety adherence to limits set by the tradition of the best science reflection of best practice devotion obligations of divine institution; better demonstration of faith than that surrounds himself with discretion; deserves greater humility and nobility finally better than that knowledge gives. Equitable share must be made that the body feels with a counterpoint, the idea of the precariousness of things and death.Anonymous
I don't make meth, however my rights to buy Sudafed freely have been taken away for the actions of a few. I'm okay with this... because I understand that having a responsible and safe society requires all to be involved with curbing crime. More guns? Really? Most of the guns used in crime have been legally purchased. Some then are stolen and/or trafficked. More guns = more guns eventually into the hands of a criminal. Trying to make believe you're the sheriff in town is a delusion. It really is. Oh, and I can still buy Sudafed, it's just regulated to keep track of purchases.Anonymous
Upon suggestion from the internet, I'm having a Star Wars marathon, but in a different order. Episodes 4,5 then 2,3 and finally 6. You get the original beginning to the story, then flash back to how Anakin became Vader, then the conclusion. Bonus, skip episode 1 completely. It's terrible and serves no purpose. Win.Anonymous
Amen to this! We must not worship false gods. My church does not mark nationalistic holidays. One time on the Sunday nearest to July 4 our message topic was Surrender, which I thought was a nice counterpoint to the nationalistic message being promoted in the culture. If you visit our church, you will not see any American flags or national symbols. We must be clear to whom our loyalty belongs.Anonymous
Working on the game a bit more, still not totally sure where it's going. I've transcribed a few of the Goldberg variations to chiptune format for the background music, and they sound pretty awesome. The next step is adding shadowing to the lighting engine, as well as putting together a more comprehensive array for the game map, able to contain different types of tiles. Shadowing is proving to be pretty darned complicated and annoying. Remember graphing inequalities from algebra? Wish I did... I have to use them in tandem with boolean logic to cast shadows from squares, and it's just getting obnoxiously complicated... Thankfully not resource intensive though. I think the game will use only the canons from the Goldberg variations, possible with the aria and its reprise. So, the point, besides looking pretty, will be to subconsciously gain an understanding of counterpoint, specifically canons.Anonymous
Imbalance is not the counterpoint of balance. Balance as a perfection point can't depend on perfection itself. It is the controlled local imbalances that when pieced together can reach, through counteraction, the equilibrium. that's the true nature of balance, so we can't expect to reach balance through balances but through imbalances. but the question is if the Ultimately Perfect is one in its own kind, can its nature be dissective, meaning that all the constituents of it be as perfect as the entire Perfection itself? I am ready to subscribe to the fact that it can exist beyond the border of definition in the sense we perceive the balancing imbalances.Anonymous
Perfect- Lacking nothing essential to the whole; complete of its nature or kind. I use this word often, and at times I wonder if perhaps I overextend the phrases reach. Is anything really perfect? I often wonder if anything is really not. Perspective is an oft undervalued, yet very powerful force in an individuals reality. Everything in this universe is reliant entirely upon our perception to be made what it is, or what it is not. I have spent the last few years reprogramming myself to find the value and the beauty in all around me. I find myself now succeeding, but as I do I often ponder whether or not I am going too far, if every human, animal, experience and moment are as beautiful as I perhaps perceive them to be, or if this is an imbalanced perspective. However, should perfection be the sum of all parts lacking or needing nothing, being complete as a whole, I find this to be a perfectly reasonable position. For in all things, in order to be complete must attain their own balance, each found in their own counterpoints, one continuously sustaining the next. Each and every particle, object, being and experience find in time their own balance point, and by virtue of that point even existing, each is, as a whole, perfect. As such, the conclusion that I came to today, is that by virtue of recognizing the whole of an image as free of what would generally be considered "flaws", because for each such there is created its own counterpoint and thus in it's entirety no single piece may be excluded in order to reach a unified whole, rather than sliding to any point on the scale as good or bad, rather I am seeing from the centerpoint each as complimentary, and thus, perfection by necessity. And in that, is balance. What am I getting at here? You are perfect. Because right now exist all the necessary components for you to one day be the most perfect you that you could ever want or imagine. And who you are right now is perfect because right now you are the you that will create the you that will be you then. Each step, each moment in your life is immeasurably grand if only for the reason that it is the necessary step needed to reach the next step. But of course it is for much more than that. Ten might be a pivotal number, but it would be nothing without one through nine. Thank you for being, perfect little you. <3Anonymous
Late at night, I'll run through the streets and empty corridors. I'll find my counterpoint, inside a red room locked behind a door. Behind a door. And someone tell me, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today. Just tell me nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today. Ooooooh, everything I know. Ooooooh, everything I know. Is suddenly gone. And tell me nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today. And someone tell me, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong today, today, today, today.Anonymous
