Miracle Living [Oct. 10th, 2006|09:05 am]
Judging Books By Their Covers

"3 Important Steps To Your Better Health and Miracle Living" by Oral Roberts, 1976

Poor guy. Being given a name like "Oral" I can only imagine why he'd be an odd bird. He does have good hair though. Good, ol fashioned honest mans hair.

This was purchased at a garage sale from some speed freaks. I always thought it would be fun to start some organization called "Tweekers for Christ", but I'm afraid of the people that would show up.


What are these 3 Important Steps?

1. "You will be in great position to have health and success if your relationship with God your Source is right."

2. "Your life will be completely different if you learn to plant good seed with God and with people you like or dislike."

3. "You can expect many miracles for yourself if you have a right relationship with yourself... and with God."

The size of the text in this book is huge, so any idiot can follow along easily. The chapters are broken down into key issues.

My, that's a key issue, and it's written in the shape of a key! now, that's CLEVER!

Pretty much if you have the right faith you will be healthy both in mind and body. The text points out that some people have lifestyles that are against god, but appear to be healthy. It isn't so. This book is about well being. And Oral Roberts is super healthy. Finding jesus is just like getting a heart transplant. Only healthier. Its a new spiritual heart.

That wraps up chapter one and two. By the end of chapter one, you should be able to start "expecting miracles"

I thought a miracle was something unexpected, but what do I know? I have a regular old boring heart.

Doctors can operate on your body, but only god can operate on your soul.

Chapter 4 talks about "Dis-ease"

There's more. I don't want to spoil the ending.

Good luck taking care of "that vital life-force God calls your S-O-U-L"

and if you get lost along the way, there is a hotline to call.
for prayer anytime.

Jesus is waiting to personally answer your call.

Face Reading [Oct. 8th, 2006|08:36 pm]
Judging Books By Their Covers

this one is a jem. It is one of my personal favorite all time finds. ohmygod. ohmygod. ohmygod.


This book comes with 8 enlightening chapters
1. The ABC's of Face Reading
2. What the Forehead Fortells
3.What the Eyebrows Say
4. How to Read the Eyes
5. What the Nose Shows
6. What the Mouth Speaks
7. Watch those Ears
8. Check those Cheeks

Here's some fascinating facts!

"People with narrow foreheads are more apt to have one long horizontal wrinkle, which is usually well below the center line. This type of wrinkle and forehead is an indication that the person got the short end of the genetic stick from his parents, and also had a really rough time when young. He tends to be below average in intelligence , to be opportunistic and greedy, but he is also very likely to be a hard worker and to succeed in business despite his short comings."

Oblique Wrinkles
"Oblique or horizontal wrinkles between the eyebrows is regarded as a sign of bad temper and a tendency to do foolish things while having a tantrum."

pay attention ladies - this could be you

(begining where the picture ends)
"Fortune tellers advise women in this category to aquire a profession so they will be able to support themselves. They are also advised that the chances of making a better marriage a second time are very slim. Men with round foreheads on the other hand are considered fortunate because they tend to be good natured and easy to get along with. "

now to my favorite part. the eyes. the windows to the soul. What lurks behind womens eyes? Well Boye De Mente knows. Here are some of his pearls of knowledge:

Maybe that why they thought potheads were killers back in the day.

well what about our wise author? what is he all about?

Hmm... lets see....

* His triangular shaped face indicates he's an "intellectual and a dreamer, and may run from one extreme to another. He is often shy and self conscious. Most great philosophers, musicians and writers fall into this category"

* His high and wide forehead is regarded " as a sign of intelligence and energy. ...this type of forehead also indicates one who spends alot of time reading and meditating." blah blah blah, "...is commom among successful men."

* His masculine eyebrow indicates hes "straight forward and determined. They keep their emotions in control. Their biggest failing is that they are generally oblivious to the feelings of others"

hmm, that one wasn't entirely postive

* His Creative Mans Nose is a sign of " an unusual capacity for creativity. Face-readers say both men and women with this type of nose generally go deeply into whatever interests them, often developing new ideas or products."

* His Civilized Man's Mouth shows us he's " well- balanced, finely formed and rather delicately made and is indicative of the ideal civilized man- one who was obedient and well behaved while young, has a pleasant personality, is unselfish and diplomatic, and is devoted to helping others, especially the young."


theres even a summary at the end saying you can change your fortune by changing your appearance! i think thats a good message for all of todays youth.

This guy also wrote several more books, one was about asian face reading, then theres this one, the batchelors guide to japan

a.k.a. how to get laid in japan?

hey, send me a picture of yourself, i'll "Face Read" it.

Wow. This is going to be the first entry in the new book club. Unfortunately, i'm just going to repost some stuff I put in my LJ.

This is going to be a fun community. I guess we'll just figure out the rules as we go along. :)
