Powerlifters Should Translate the Bible

This summer I got real serious about powerlifting. One of the things I did was read the Technical Rules of the International Powerlifting Federation. As soon as I began to read it, I was greatly impressed. This is what it says in the very beginning:
Throughout this rule book, for reasons of brevity, wherever the words “he” or “his” occur, such reference is deemed to apply to either sex.

I wish Bible translators had this much sense!

Wash Your Hands

I'm beginning to wash my hands more often. It's a good thing to do. However, a couple of days ago, I realized that I haven't been washing my hands long enough. I've been told that you should sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in your head as you wash your hands to time yourself.
