Re: 1762: "Moving Boxes"

I did label them as I boxed them. It didn't help much, because I am bad at labels. One box was labeled "other other books". When I opened it, it was mostly kitchen stuff (some of which was cookbooks, which I assume was why I named it that).

Re: 0969: "Delta-P"

Is it worth reading or watching? Myself being a Christian, I can say that it was very worth reading. The recent movies also do a decent job. I can see how a non-Christian may not like it due to the Christian nature, but imagine that it is still quite entertaining. As an atheist, I can tell you that...
