Who is eating at these places in high enough numbers to keep them in business and, in some cases, run multiple locations?
Not just those three mentioned, I mean any of those “local mainstay” restaurants that just seem to limp along year after year like a corpse that doesn’t know it’s dead. The places that you haven’t heard of a single person you know or have met eating at since the mid-1990’s.
Granada House, Humpty’s, Station Place, Mr. Ribs... there are lots more of these I’m sure I can’t think of off the top of my head. The places that you just wonder, “how is this place still here?”
Is this just all seniors and the after-church crowd keeping these places afloat?
Hi, Me and a friend were holding a single story house surrounded by grainfields while we were taking fire from players laying in these fields. I had a molotov in my inventory and I jokingly told my friend "Let's set fire to the fields so we can mess up their cover". Having no where else to go we then talked about how that would be a pretty cool mechanic to be implemented into the game and how it would work. Then we got rushed and shot in the face with a shotgun. We're really bad shots.
What do you guys think about molotovs being able to be used in this way? We talked about the fire spreading from the molotov and eventually dieng out after reaching a certain radius around the point of impact, forcing everyone near this area to relocate. The radius should be different during the various weather settings, while its raining it should be really small while during sunny weather it should be the largest.
I decided I wanted a nice peaceful game where I could sit back as the USA and just nuke everyone. Everyone. Allies, Axis, Commies. Rebel militia. Even Liberia and Tibet. Is that too much to ask? Surely not. I have already done the whole micromanage WC in various forms, it becomes tedious, too much work. This time I want to just relax and enjoy watching radioactive clouds drifting around the world.
So I gamed the early war system, lowered my Neutrality, guaranteed Shanxi, and found myself at war with Japan in July 1937. Lovely. I then proceeded with my cunning master plan: Do nothing.
Not exactly true, for I was whoring IC until the last grainfield in Kansas was buried under a foot of factory floor concrete. Additionally I was priority researching all nuke related stuff and tech efficiency. Must have NUKES. Soon as possible. Lots of them. Related to this was a small and very quick invasion of Canada and Norway to get those sweet resources of Uranium and Heavy water. These speed up nuke research significantly. Can't let a few insignificant countries get in the way of my dreams of vaporizing cities.
So otherwise I did nothing. Build more IC. Some more navy and aircraft. Totally ignored the Japanese who seemed perfectly content to ignore me in return. They didn't even try to take Guam. Not that I blame them for that. Have you been to Guam? Sunny beaches, swaying palm trees, clear warm waters... just dreadful. Not a factory in sight. Well, I will change that after the war was over. I will concrete the entire island, shore to shore.
Come September1940 and I have been pumping out nuclear reactors until the night sky above Detroit glows during a power cut. I am now producing NUKES at the blissful rate of 0.2 per month and am on the verge of producing my first airborne City Sanitation device. Meanwhile I am still only at war with Japan, who is yet to join the Axis.
Did I mention I took out Denmark? Yeah, had to, in order to reach Norway's Heavy Water resource. No problem there, right? I mean, who cares about Denmark? One infantry corps and it was all over. Barely worth mentioning really. No one cares about Denmark.
Germany has been doing its German thing in Poland and France. I see no problem with that. Indeed they are good trading partners, I get a lot of supplies from Germany. Surely we can both live in peace and harmony until I decide one day to remove Berlin from the list of European cities to visit. Perhaps when they are on the verge of taking Moscow... keep reading on reddit ➡

Matthew 12 New Living Translation (NLT)
A Discussion about the Sabbath
1 At about that time Jesus was walking through some grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry, so they began breaking off some heads of grain and eating them. 2 But some Pharisees saw them do it and protested, “Look, your disciples are breaking the law by harvesting grain on the Sabbath.” 3 Jesus said to them, “Haven’t you read in the Scriptures what David did when he and his companions were hungry? 4 He went into the house of God, and he and his companions broke the law by eating the sacred loaves of bread that only the priests are allowed to eat. 5 And haven’t you read in the law of Moses that the priests on duty in the Temple may work on the Sabbath? 6 I tell you, there is one here who is even greater than the Temple! 7 But you would not have condemned my innocent disciples if you knew the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ 8 For the Son of Man is Lord, even over the Sabbath!”
Jesus Heals on the Sabbath
9 Then Jesus went over to their synagogue, 10 where he noticed a man with a deformed hand. The Pharisees asked Jesus, “Does the law permit a person to work by healing on the Sabbath?” (They were hoping he would say yes, so they could bring charges against him.) 11 And he answered, “If you had a sheep that fell into a well on the Sabbath, wouldn’t you work to pull it out? Of course you would. 12 And how much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Yes, the law permits a person to do good on the Sabbath.” 13 Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored, just like the other one! 14 Then the Pharisees called a meeting to plot how to kill Jesus.
Some notes from BLB: -Jesus never violated God's command to observe the Sabbath or approved of His disciples violating God's Sabbath command. But He often broke man's legalistic additions to that law and He sometimes seems to have deliberately broken those human additions.
-The first principle Jesus presented is simple and illustrated by David's experience with the priests and the showbread (1 Samuel 21). Jesus reminded them that human need is more important that observing ceremonial rituals.
-The second principle Jesus presented is also simple. The priests themselves break the Sabbath all the time. Perhaps the Pharisees didn't understand as much about Sabbath observance as they thought they did.

Alkemia fall reviews! Just a whole bunch of quick reviews to cover.
>Evil Temptress | A naughty elegance of saffron, pink pepper, Ceylon cinnamon, spicy carnations, bourbon roses, pears soaked in honey cognac, cashmeran, hay, tonka, dark caramel, a titilating flick of leather, black opium, and cardamon infused patchouli.
I thought I might like this, so I blind bought a full size. For me, this is the autumnal version of Silken Tent. It's sexy and a little dark. I'm a sucker for this kind of sweet and spicy mix. I think the initial wear of this is a little bit...sneezy for me, but when the pepper wears down a bit, it's more gourmand. I don't like it as much as Silken Tent, but I think for now, I'll keep it.
>Sigil | A recipe in an ancient 16th century grimoire that includes olibanum frankincense, lignum aloes, bdellium, styrax, black honey, and euphorbium; the essence of "Stones of Immortality" - opium thebaicum, dried citrus, and the quintessence of gold; and an alchemist's compounding of coffee beans and ritual herbs.
This one is weird for me! It's strongly herbal, woodsy, and something that reads as a bit...cool/clean? Maybe that's the citrus and honey. Or maybe my brain decided that "ligum aloes" meant it smelled like my aloe vera gel. (That's not what that means, self.)
Anyways I didn't know what I was smelling, or what it is supposed to smell like. Turns out that olibanum frankincense is camphorous so it does smell cool/metallic for some people. Guess I am one of them! I feel like I should be able to compare it to something more specific than that, but it's like if you rubbed aloe gel on steel and then happened to look at something green. Also for fun, bdellium is an adulterant of myrrh (which is bitter). It's a unique scent that isn't for me.
>County Fair | The nostalgic scent of an old-fashioned American carnival midway - pink cotton candy, hot kettle corn, freshly fried dough, candied apples, and saltwater taffy. (The Wanderer’s Journal Collection)
This is one of my favorite fair/fest scents - it's a truly yummy sugary gourmand that gives me warmth, kettle corn, and has some salt that keeps it interesting. I love basically all of the notes in this and it's delicious. I don't get much of apples specifically but cotton candy and fried dough definitely. It doesn't have a huge throw.

Many people have set out to write accounts about the events that have been fulfilled among us. They used the eyewitness reports circulating among us from the early disciples. Having carefully investigated everything from the beginning, I also have decided to write an accurate account for you, most honorable Theophilus, so you can be certain of the truth of everything you were taught. When Herod was king of Judea, there was a Jewish priest named Zechariah. He was a member of the priestly order of Abijah, and his wife, Elizabeth, was also from the priestly line of Aaron. Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous in God’s eyes, careful to obey all of the Lord’s commandments and regulations. They had no children because Elizabeth was unable to conceive, and they were both very old. One day Zechariah was serving God in the Temple, for his order was on duty that week. As was the custom of the priests, he was chosen by lot to enter the sanctuary of the Lord and burn incense. While the incense was being burned, a great crowd stood outside, praying. While Zechariah was in the sanctuary, an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing to the right of the incense altar. Zechariah was shaken and overwhelmed with fear when he saw him. But the angel said, “Don’t be afraid, Zechariah! God has heard your prayer. Your wife, Elizabeth, will give you a son, and you are to name him John. You will have great joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth, for he will be great in the eyes of the Lord. He must never touch wine or other alcoholic drinks. He will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth. And he will turn many Israelites to the Lord their God. He will be a man with the spirit and power of Elijah. He will prepare the people for the coming of the Lord. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and he will cause those who are rebellious to accept the wisdom of the godly.” Zechariah said to the angel, “How can I be sure this will happen? I’m an old man now, and my wife is also well along in years.” Then the angel said, “I am Gabriel! I stand in the very presence of God. It was he who sent me to bring you this good news! But now, since you didn’t believe what I said, you will be silent and unable to speak until the child is born. For my words will certainly be fulfilled at the proper time.” Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Zechariah to come out of the sanctuary, wondering why he was taking so long. When he finally did come ou... keep reading on reddit ➡
Welcome back to our AOTY writeup series, still going strong. Today, /u/readyerrnot is covering the new mewithoutYou record, the poetically titled [Untitled]
Background by /u/readyerrnot
mewithoutYou are a post-hardcore, art rock band hailing from Philadelphia. With cult classic records Catch for us the Foxes and Brother, Sister, the boys bring together a dedicated following. While mewithoutYou has managed to progress their rock instrumentation with each release, the mainstay of Aaron's religiously, politically, and emotionally charged lyrics remain unique and inspiring. Each album brings a seemingly endless well of knowledge for dedicated fans to dissect, analyze, and understand. With their 2015 release, Pale Horses, mewithoutYou put together their first record produced by Will Yip, which came off as a "summary" of their sound. Drawing inspiration from each of their eras, Pale Horses was widely accepted by fans--especially those yearning for the days of Foxes and Brother, Sister.
While recording for the 2018 untitled release, mewithoutYou entered one of their most prolific periods in their career, eventually deciding to release 19 songs in the form of two releases. One only needs to look towards Vasily Kafanov's artwork for the e.p. and l.p. to know what was on the horizon. The first of these releases came in the form of the [untitled] e.p.--an instrumentally laid back, 7 song release, perfect for cracking open a cold one with the lads during the calm before the storm. The e.p. is riddled with melancholic and heavy topics sang cleanly it what feels like stream of conscious storytelling. In retrospect, the e.p. served the much needed purpose of being a sneak peak into Aaron Weiss's state of mind. Since Pale Horses, it is no secret that Aaron Weiss has been using his songwriting as a way to cope with the recent passing of his father. Would he succumb to the same mental illness as his father? Would his entire world fall apart? even more than he feels it already has? "Are we never... keep reading on reddit ➡

This year has been huge for indie perfume for me; I've had tons of hits and tons of misses, but I'm very pleased with my collection as a whole. Here is my last set of perfume reviews for 2017, featuring mostly hits with a few misses.
Alkemia Honeycakes for the Harvest Moon
Freshly baked honeycakes, autumn beeswax, gleanings from ripened grainfields, and newly harvested fruits lightly spiced with nutmeg, ginger, and golden cloves.
In the bottle: It’s beautifully sweet honey cakes. It reminds me a lot of Sharing the Cake HG!
On the skin: This no longer smells like Sharing the Cake HG at all; it’s less sweet and more true to actual honey rather than honey cakes. I’m getting quite a bit of nutmeg too which I like! It adds a nice spice note to the blend. I also like how this scent isn’t a very heavy gourmand; there’s a kind of lightness to it that prevents it from being overly foodie. However, I’ve discovered that applying this to my skin and waiting for it to dry results in a bizarre celery smell after a few hours and I really don’t like it. Into the destash pile it goes!
TL;DR: Weird spiced celery. Nope nope nope. 1/5.
Alkemia Affaire de Couer
Sugared white musk, creamy Madagascar vanilla, white sandalwood, tonka bean, white amber, and pale sugar cane.
In the bottle: Sandalwood and sweetness. Dusty, but incredibly feminine. Something in it reads as pear to me for some reason.
On the skin: This definitely a a sugared sandalwood blend. I’m having a hard time picking out the notes individually, though; there’s sandalwood for sure, and I think some sugared vanilla and musk. There’s a powdery kind of note in there too, and it’s very light and delicate. I feel like this will be a good scent for occasion where I can’t wear a scent that’s very strong or a little more unconventional.
TL;DR: Sugared sandalwood. Nice and unoffensive. 4/5.
Alkemia Le Petit Mort
Triple iron distilled Indonesian red patchouli and dark forest blossom beeswax honeycomb.
In the bottle: Patchouli and honey. Very simple, but very sensual. Not much more to say there.
On the skin: It now reminds me a lot of BPAL impressions of the Floating World. It’s that same kind of powdery, perfume-y patch and honey blend. It’s just okay, honestly. It’s not bad, but it’s not fantastic either. I will say that it smells quite mainstream and expensive though.
TL;DR: Powdery patchouli and honey. Kind of basic to me. 2/5.

>Jesus was not content to derive his ethics from the scriptures of his upbringing. He explicitly departed from them, for example when he deflated the dire warnings about breaking the sabbath. ‘The sabbath was made for man, not man for the sabbath’ has been generalized into a wise proverb.
Jesus, the messiah, whose holy book is rife with Old Testament allegories and allusions. Where did he obtain his ethical leanings then, if not from his culturally Jewish upbringing, and his obviously studious knowledge of it. I'm not even going to assume his omniscience as God, which many Christians would.
He does not offer an alternative for this, but, presumably, comes to this conclusion since Jesus doesn't smote people capriciously, as Dawkins would assume.
Now, onto his example of departing from the Old Testament. Here's the episode from Mark, 2:23-28:
>One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. The Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?”
>He answered, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.”
>Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
So this non-Jew named David flaunted sacred law just to eat some Jew bread? Oh, that David? Which means it has precedence already in the Bible? Good choice, Dawkins. Jesus literally tells you how he came to the conclusion, citing the Old Testament.
>Since a principal thesis of this chapter is that we do not, and should not, derive our morals from scripture, Jesus has to be honoured as a model for that very thesis.
That's a hard sell in the first place, you shouldn't've started out with it.
>Jesus’ family values, it has to be admitted, were not such as one might wish to focus on. He was short, to the point of brusqueness, with his own mother, and he encouraged his disciples ‘If any man come to me and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.’

The camera is severely deteriorated (rusted and rotten), but I salvaged the photos off of the memory card. I'd like to get them to the owner if I can find him/her.
The photos suggest the owner is a senior familiar with the Saskatoon area. There are a few years worth of photos on the memory card. If the dates are correct, they're over 2009-2011. Most appear to be of family, kids, anniversaries.
I suspect a grandkid went/goes to Roland Michener School (4215 Degeer Street Saskatoon, SK).
The last 5 days of photos are of a plane, some shopping, gators, marinas, and then the sanctuary/swamp where I found the camera. One of the last photos.
Any leads reddit?
[UPDATE EDIT] I have emailed the people I believe are the camera owners. Thanks reddit!
[CONCLUSION EDIT] Photos returned! As a side bonus, this story made the front page of the Star Phoenix in Saskatoon!
I am a bot! Please send me a private message with any comments or feedback on how I work.

I'm looking for people with an academic background to help me in quickly putting together a logical, factually sound response to Jehovah's Witnesses take on blood. If you're unaware, Jehovah's Witnesses do not take blood transfusions because they view it as unscriptual.
My sister is a Jehovah's Witness, and is currently in the hospital with hemoglobin levels that are dropping daily, and her and her/my family are supporting her decision to not take a blood transfusion, because they are all Jehovah's Witnesses. This is all the result of complications from her giving birth to my new niece. I don't want to see her die for this; I don't see these scriptures as being something to be taken literally. But I'm not an expert-- that is where you come in--
I need help with providing factually accurate context and interpretations of these scriptures:
I'm going to collect this information and present it to my family with the hopes that I can change their minds, while there is still time to change their minds.
Again, I would prefer those with actual academic backgrounds that can support their claims logically and factually in order to credentialize the message.
Please help, and please post to any forums where you may know of someone that can help as well.

The primary crop for the region was easily grain, the staple food for the nation's populace. Necessary in the production of flour, and therefore bread, the grainfields of Danubia Proper flowed like waves of amber on the horizon beyond the city's walls.
While the Danubian Crown had traditionally held the peasantry of these lands with the same contempt as any other monarch in the past would have, Kuno was keenly aware of the plight of Hellas and Untiia, and thus ensured that these lands and their inhabitants were taken care of. This was achieved through the use of the Hellenic Stratoi which decades prior had been given to Kuno's mother, Isolde. In times of peace, half of the army was to patrol the countryside, inspecting the fields and acting as lawkeepers to sustain the peace in this valuable region.
This countryside also provided the city with a variety of fruits and other crops, namely apples, grapes, barley, and blackberries. While many of these fruits of the earth were sold to the masses as food to eat, they were also used in the production of alcohol. Donava had become known for its high-quality ales and mead, and the wines from the countryside were some of the best one could buy east of Lazica and north of Hellas Proper.
Since its founding, Donava had been a hotbed for smelting and smithing throughout the nation. It was here that much of the nation's weaponry was forged, most notably the entire armory of the Kuningaz monarchs. This tradition had gained Donava a reputation in the region as a prime location for metalworking, further boosting the city's industry.
Alright, now that we've had Cora's in Saskatoon for a few months now, for those who have eaten there, what'd you think?
I absolutely love Cora's and I gotta eat it whenever I'm in another city, but when I ate at the location here, I was so let down, and all the people who I've talked to that have tried it, they don't like it. And I really want them to like it, because the other locations out there in Canada are top notch.
That being said, what'd you think?
Update: So Cora's is not a favourite. Have ya guys tried Grainfields?
the men huddled closely around and gazed at the settlement below them. it seemed small and fledgling. and therefore a perfect target. they observed the movements of the patrols and the watchtowers nearing completion. the town was soft and still growing its scales and would be weak. half of the scouting unit went back to report while the other half did recon and field estimates. they realized that there was a small section of rocky plane that led straight into a grainfield. they feel they could use this and be at their doorstep before they knew they were here.
however as blood thirsty and invincible as they felt. they knew that the objective was to capture one of these things alive for interrogation AND to leave their mark. the strategists decided that burning their field would make their mark both in the moment and leave long lasting affects in the time to come.
one of the scouts came rushing into camp. "what is it? did you report to the commander?". "yes" the man panted. he went on to talk about how the commander got word that he had spotted some other creatures and they would not get reinforcements. "damn" the field leader said aloud. "oh well we should be able to do this with only a few men. pack up and get ready we attack under darkness and we leave no trace"

Grant’s woes deepened in the paralyzing economic panic that broke in 1873. Bursting with startling rapidity, the crash was one of those periodic plum- mets that roller-coastered the economy in this age of unbridled capitalist expansion. Overreaching promoters had laid more railroad track, sunk more mines, erected more factories, and sowed more grainfields than existing markets could bear. Bankers, in turn, had made too many imprudent loans to finance those enterprises. When profits failed to materialize, loans went unpaid, and the whole credit-based house of cards fluttered down. Boom times became gloom times as more than fifteen thousand businesses went bankrupt. In New York City, an army of unemployed riotously battled police. Black Americans were hard hit. The Freed- man’s Savings and Trust Company had made unse- cured loans to several companies that went under. Black depositors who had entrusted over $7 million to the bank lost their savings, and black economic development and black confidence in savings insti- tutions went down with it. Hard times inflicted the worst punishment on debtors, who intensified their clamor for inflation- ary policies. Proponents of inflation breathed new life into the issue of greenbacks. During the war $450 million of the “folding money” had been issued, but it had depreciated under a cloud of pop- ular mistrust and dubious legality.* By 1868 the Treasury had already withdrawn $100 million of the “battle-born currency” from circulation, and “hard- money” people everywhere looked forward to its complete disappearance. But now afflicted agrarian and debtor groups—“cheap-money” supporters— clamored for a reissuance of the greenbacks. With a crude but essentially accurate grasp of monetary theory, they reasoned that more money meant cheaper money and, hence, rising prices and easier- to-pay debts. Creditors, of course, reasoning from the same premises, advocated precisely the oppo- site policy. They had no desire to see the money they had loaned repaid in depreciated dollars. They wanted deflation, not inflation. The “hard-money” advocates carried the day. In 1874 they persuaded a confused Grant to veto a bill to print more paper money. They scored another victory in the Resumption Act of 1875, which pledged the government to the further withdrawal of greenbacks from circulation and to the redemp- tion of all paper currency in gold at face value, beginning in 1879. Down but not out, debtors now looked for relief to another pr... keep reading on reddit ➡
^10 For God is not so unjust as to overlook your work and the love which you showed for his sake in serving the saints, as you still do.^11 And we desire each one of you to show the same earnestness in realizing the full assurance of hope until the end,^12 so that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.^13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself,^14 saying, "Surely I will bless you and multiply you."^15 And thus Abraham, having patiently endured, obtained the promise.^16 Men indeed swear by a greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation.^17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he interposed with an oath,^18 so that through two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible that God should prove false, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to seize the hope set before us.^19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner shrine behind the curtain,^20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest for ever after the order of Melchiz'edek.

I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.^2 Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who have pleasure in them. ^4 He has caused his wonderful works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful. ^5 He provides food for those who fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant. ^9 He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant for ever.

>One sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain.
It was lawful to pick grain from someone else's field to eat yourself as long as you did it by hand. Deuteronomy 23:25:
>If you go into your neighbor’s standing grain, you may pluck the ears with your hand, but you shall not put a sickle to your neighbor’s standing grain.
Harvesting, however, was unlawful on the Sabbath. Exodus 34:21:
>Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even in plowing time and in harvest time you shall rest.
Mishnah Shabbat 7.2 [pdf] includes among the 39 activities prohibited on the Sabbath: "Sowing, ploughing, reaping, binding into sheaves, threshing, winnowing . . ."
>The Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?”
Once again, Mark has the Pharisees appear in a situation where they seem unlikely to have actually been. John Meier compares this particular episode to a scene in a Broadway musical, pointing out that while Pharisees may very well have confronted Jesus in synagogues, they probably weren't patrolling grainfields on the Sabbath, hoping to catch violators picking food. This incident may be a construction of Mark's to illustrate the saying found at the end of the pericope, or Mark may be compressing the "violation" and a later confrontation for dramatic effect.
>And he said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need of food? He entered the house of God, when Abiathar was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and he gave some to his companions.”
Either Jesus or Mark is inaccurate here: according to 1 Samuel 21, Abiathar's father Ahimelech was the high priest at the time and gave David the bread. Matthew and Luke will both excise the mistake in their versions of this story. The error may further suggest that Mark has invented the story, but it seems uncharacteristic of him; his Old Testament references are usually much more skillful. I think it's more likely to speak to Mark's willingness to include even difficult material in his story: perhaps Jesus mispoke, or perhaps someone between Jesus... keep reading on reddit ➡

This is the beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “Behold, I will send My messenger ahead of You, who will prepare Your way.” “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him.’” John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. People went out to him from all of Jerusalem and the countryside of Judea. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. John was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. And he began to proclaim: “After me will come One more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. As soon as Jesus came up out of the water, He saw the heavens breaking open and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.” At once the Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness, and He was there for forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and the angels ministered to Him. After the arrest of John, Jesus went into Galilee and proclaimed the gospel of God. “The time is fulfilled,” He said, “and the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe in the gospel!” As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow Me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” And at once they left their nets and followed Him. Going on a little farther, He saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat, mending their nets. Immediately Jesus called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed Him. Then Jesus and His companions went to Capernaum, and as soon as the Sabbath began, Jesus entered the synagogue and began to teach. The people were astonished at His teaching, because He taught as one who had authority, and not as the scribes. Suddenly a man with an unclean spirit cried out in the synagogue: “What do You want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” But Jesus rebuked the spirit. “Be silent!” He... keep reading on reddit ➡
Then Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and summoned the elders, the heads, the judges, and the officers of Israel; and they presented themselves before God. And Joshua said to all the people, "Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Long ago your ancestors-- Terah and his sons Abraham and Nahor-- lived beyond the Euphrates and served other gods. Then I took your father Abraham from beyond the River and led him through all the land of Canaan and made his offspring many. I gave him Isaac; and to Isaac I gave Jacob and Esau. I gave Esau the hill country of Seir to possess, but Jacob and his children went down to Egypt. Then I sent Moses and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt with what I did in its midst; and afterwards I brought you out. When I brought your ancestors out of Egypt, you came to the sea; and the Egyptians pursued your ancestors with chariots and horsemen to the Red Sea. When they cried out to the LORD, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and made the sea come upon them and cover them; and your eyes saw what I did to Egypt. Afterwards you lived in the wilderness a long time. Then I brought you to the land of the Amorites, who lived on the other side of the Jordan; they fought with you, and I handed them over to you, and you took possession of their land, and I destroyed them before you. Then King Balak son of Zippor of Moab, set out to fight against Israel. He sent and invited Balaam son of Beor to curse you, but I would not listen to Balaam; therefore he blessed you; so I rescued you out of his hand. When you went over the Jordan and came to Jericho, the citizens of Jericho fought against you, and also the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I handed them over to you. I sent the hornet ahead of you, which drove out before you the two kings of the Amorites; it was not by your sword or by your bow. I gave you a land on which you had not labored, and towns that you had not built, and you live in them; you eat the fruit of vineyards and oliveyards that you did not plant. "Now therefore revere the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness; put away the gods that your ancestors served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. Now if you are unwilling to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served in the region beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you... keep reading on reddit ➡
