To ASL or not to ASL?

I can’t seem to get my mic to work when I’m recording on my webcam from my laptop, so I made a video completely in ASL for Kickstarter. Should I use that, or go ahead and use my iPhone to make a ‘hearing’ video instead?

Here’s the video (for those of you who haven’t seen me do ASL before).  And yes, I know it’s not TRUE ASL, because we use a mix of PSE, Fingerspelling and Tactile Sign at home and it’s hard to get from that to true ASL unless I’m in a conversation with another person using it.


Conversations With The Hobbit: Part 1

My Hobbit: i just wonder if there’s more ‘science’ than we think in scripture
Me: well, I’m pretty sure that scriptures/prophets weren’t all that concerned with science. That’s like asking an astronomer what he thinks about rotating crops: you know? It’s really not fair to expect them to be an expert in both fields, especially when that option really wasn’t available to them. They knew about sheep. They could tell you how to breed a good ewe. That’s about all the science they knew, but for their time, that was pretty damned important and yet, people always expect prophets to know more about science than scientists know about faith (or sheep).
