So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…


Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.


Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:  Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).  Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).  Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).  Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).  Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).  Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).  Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).  Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).  Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).  Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).  Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).  You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.

To expand on this, Jesus’s name is Anglicized in this way as well. We get Jesus from the Latin form of the Greek “Ἰησοῦς”(Iēsous), which is derived from the Herbrew “ישוע”(Yeshu’a, which meant “YHWH is Salvaion”, YHWH, or Yahweh being the name of God). When another form of that name, ” יְהוֹשֻׁעַ”(Yeoshu’a) was allowed to Anglicize through a different set of corruptions, it entered the English Language through Reformist Protestants as the name “Joshua”.Yes. Jesus’s actual name is Joshua.

I learned these from my Humanities teacher in college but the only thing that stuck with me three years later is that Peter=Rock aka Rocky. Peter was a big burly guy named Rocky.

Man, could you explain how Jesus also found apostles called Pedro, Juan, Jacobo, Diego/Santiago, Andres, Mateo, Felipe, etc in the Middle East. Like those are Spanish names????

The name Joshua really makes Jesus so much more relatable as a man!

Etymology is interesting, for sure!

Garand Thumb - Imgur
Some of you might have heard the term “Garand-Thumb” or “M1-Thumb”. That is the name for when the bolt of an M1 Garand slams closed on your thumb. A Garand-Thumb often occurs when you try to close the bolt on an empty magazine. To close the bolt on an unloaded M1 Garand you need to push down on the magazine follower before the bolt can close, and if your finger doesn’t get out of the way in time it’ll be caught. Often people will get a Garand-Thumb because the bolt has not been pulled fully to the rear. When the bolt is to the rear it is locked in place by the bolt catch and won’t be released until you relieve the pressure on it. However if you don’t manage to get the bolt all the way back it might rest on the magazine follower instead of the bolt-catch, and it might slam shut without warning.

High-Speed footage of a Garand-Thumb.

Here is a clip of me purposely giving myself a Garand-Thumb, recorded at 1200 frames per second. As you can see, the bolt was resting on the follower and released as soon as I touched it with my thumb.



Not being completely satisfied with the previous clip, I recorded one more. Don’t try this at home (unless you are recording it)




Here is what the clip looks like in real time, to give you an idea of how suddenly the bolt can slam shut.


Treat your raifu right or she’s gonna bite your fuckin dick off I tell you what

As someone who’s had Garand Thumb before, those gifs just hurt looking at them.

Having a buddy in the chemical corps is making me really, really paranoid about this Ebola shit.

Not even kidding, first case I hear of as close as fucking New Mexico, I’m going innawoods.

I have never played S.T.A.L.K.E.R, despite being reassured by multiple people that I would enjoy it. And I don’t really have a good excuse as to why I haven’t.
