Daemoniac

one "possessed with a devil." In the days of our Lord and his apostles, evil spirits, "daemons," were mysteriously permitted by God to exercise an influence both over the souls and bodies of men, inflicting dumbness (Matt. 9:32), blindness (12:22), epilepsy (Mark 9:17-27), insanity (Matt. 8:28; Mark 5:1-5). Daemoniacs are frequently distinguished from those who are afflicted with ordinary bodily maladies (Mark 1:32; 16:17, 18; Luke 6:17, 18). The daemons speak in their own persons (Matt. 8:29; Mark 1:23, 24; 5:7). This influence is clearly distinguished from the ordinary power of corruption and of temptation over men. In the daemoniac his personality seems to be destroyed, and his actions, words, and even thoughts to be overborne by the evil spirit (Mark, l.c.; Acts 19:15).

I felt this was very appropriate. I wish I could take credit but, Menace pointed out that the dude looks exactly like Skeletor when he smiles.

  1. Hillary Clinton’s Irrational Numbers:

    For much of the campaign, while super-delegates stampeded to Obama’s side, Clinton’s contention became that she, not Obama, possessed the popular vote. Her number estimates 17 million voted for her. Sufficiently fuzzy math might support that estimation if you count Michigan and Florida and take some liberties with the caucus state estimates. But since popular vote doesn’t elect a president anyway, it’s a moot point.

    In mathematics, the definition of an irrational number is a number that cannot be represented as a simple fraction. This is a number that has neither repeating nor terminating decimals. As the primary season ends, Clinton’s campaign becomes more and more like an irrational number: never terminating. The other definition of “irrational” may explain why that’s not happening.

    Irrational (adj.)

    1. Not endowed with reason.

    2. Affected by loss of usual or normal mental clarity; incoherent, as from shock.

    3. Marked by a lack of accord with reason or sound judgment:

    So when it comes to that 3:00 a.m. call, it’s less likely to be someone calling Hillary Clinton and more likely to be some bat-shit crazy person with nothing else to do crank calling the White House. Someone irrational. Word…
