Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

Is the Metaverse fool's gold?

 

I just watched the movie Ready Player One for the nth time yesterday and I still find myself glued to it from beginning to end.  I found certain minor details that I didn't really noticed before when I viewed the movie earlier.

What caught my attention yesterday was that Gregarious games started the Oasis in 2025.  Well that got me thinking that year would be 2 years from now and I thought about the nearest games nowadays that would closely resemble the Oasis and there isn't one yet.

I have recently dabbled with a couple of these play-to-earn games like Sandbox and Blankos recently as I wanted to learn by getting myself first hand experience  about these crypto games.  I wasn't able to play Sandbox at the time because I failed to get myself a game pass but I was able to play Blankos.  I also tried buying a few ADAs and a few SOLs just to try stuff out.

Then suddenly all these cryptocurrencies fell like dominoes with the US government intervening and creating new laws to regulate them and it somehow killed off also most of the interest of the metaverse.  Many who invested in NFTs lost money. Many of those crypto billionaires got pulled back to Earth.  With all its technological advances and promises, it looked llike Warren Buffett was right about crypto and all other digital assets (ie NFTs) all along.  It was fool's gold all along.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
