  1. Is this a seasonal thing for you? October is "time to play with palindromes month"? Or.... Or maybe you're life is a palindrome and April 2018 was your mid-point.
  2. The “B.” in Benoit B. Mandelbrot stands for “Benoit B. Mandelbrot”.
  3. Amateur. I’m chartering an expedition to the solar ice caps.
  4. Mine’s pretty great! I will “fulfill many prophecies spoken of concerning the last days”. Not to brag or anything, but being “of Magog” must come with some pretty nice perks.
  5. Nephi shows that there’s at least 3 layers of interpretation to Lehi’s dream. The first, as you note, is the personal path to salvation that invariable leads to the Savior. The second is a large scale explanation that centers on Jesus’ birth, the gospel message, apostasy, restoration, and Christ’s return. Nephi only explains some of this because he refers to John’s Apocalypse. The third is familial, tracing Nephi’s descendants and their covenant relationship with the Lord. The highlight is when they are visited by the Savior, followed by a period of apostasy, and a prophesied day of renewal and restoration. There may be other interpretations, but these are the ones Nephi gave.
  6. Tau is better. Come at me bro!
  7. President Benson invited members to use our talents to tell Book of Mormon stories in new media:
  8. Not quite manga, but there was a graphic novel created based on the first half of the Book of Nephi. I don’t know if more was created. https://bookofmormoncomics.com huh, that’s not the one I was talking about… https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?TID=541031 That’s the one.
  9. Nephi came to a similar understanding while reading Isaiah 29. Ignorant of Ezekiel, he comments that joining these two sticks directly leads to the two nations joining. One additional note is that the theme of the restoration of Israel is revisited in the two-stick prophecy. Just prior to that there is a vision of the valley of dry bones. This is often taken to directly represent the restoration of Israel and indirectly represent (for Christians at least) the resurrection. The repitition with the two sticks also has the primary and secondary representation but without latter-day revelation remains incomplete.
  10. The 3 Nephites have this explained to them. They are free sorrow “save it be for the sins of the world” (3 Nephi 28:9). This sounds like the compassion you speak of. But they are separated from the sorrow of pain and death and I’ll-fortune and such.
  11. We already found it. We have the Lord’s appendix.
  12. That’s some range she had.
  13. And that’s how we conclude that hell is endothermic.
  14. Will it be a global burning or a local one?
