  2. Welcome aboard, Seth. Should be fun, and I look forward to your baseless, bold assertions.

  3. Japan Fukuoka 94-96!!!

    I wasn’t there exactly. I was on Okinawa 1994-1996. You guys took us over in 96. Maybe we met when I went up to Fukuoka for my akashikai? When did you go home? I left on September 20th, 1996.

    It was too bad that Okinawa couldn’t remain its own mission. We were doing some good work down there. I am sure there is still some good work going on down there. I sure love that island.

    I wonder, what kind of rumours were floating around Fukuoka when you guys heard the news that Okinawa was going to be incorporated into your mission? Rumours float like crazy in the mission field.

    Anyway, glad to meet you.

  4. Nope, you missed me John. Although I prolonged my mission by one month, I still ended up going home in March, well before the merger.

    But we were hearing about it even then. The conventional wisdom was that North American missionaries were being cut back everywhere in order to send them to exotic places like Mongolia or India. The common rumor running around our mission was that the experimental proselyting system our mission used (the “Ammon Project”) was meant to be a test case for when the Church “really takes off on the Chinese mainland.”

    Ah youth… We were short on many things, but never enthusiasm.

  5. Awesome! I’ve been wanting Seth to start blogging for a long time. Welcome!

    (BTW, I’m on vacation starting tomorrow, probably won’t be online much. Any Seattle-area bloggers want to meet up, LMK–soon.)

  6. Seth,
    Would you like to follow-up on a book-placement I made in Longmont at a Mexican restaurant back in March 2005? Actually, I placed a Spanish Bible, as I was out of the Book of Mormon, and I sent some money (through the Denver N mission office) to some full-time missionaries to go back, eat there, and try to place a Spanish Book of Mormon.

    There is also a Thai restaurant in Longmont that I missed. I saw it, but had already eaten. If I send you a Thai and an English BofM, along with a Thai Liahona magazine, would you go eat there and try to place the material? Do ya like Thai food?

    If eating at ethnic restaurants appeals to you, I could give you some more places to follow-up in Loveland and Arvada, or even Fort Collins if you ever make it there.

    Rusty: if Seth can’t see my email associated with this comment, you have my permission to give it to him.

  7. Seth, I’ve enjoyed your comments and I’m looking forward to your posts.

    Incidentally, I’m a 31 year-old attorney that protects virtuous companies from 31 year-old consumer protection attorneys.

  8. Heh heh. Someone once wrote: “Lawyers are like atom bombs. If one side has them, the other side needs them.”

  9. I’m a fifty year old attorney that enjoyes litigation. I win a lot, though getting two summary judgment orders in one day (like yesterday) is still uncommon for me. All I can say is that the federal judge had excellent timing in issuing that order.

    Welcome on board.

  10. Sigh,

    I suppose, in the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that while my practice does encompass violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and Fair Credit Reporting Act, my current practice is almost entirely composed of consumer bankruptcies.

    But “Consumer Protection Attorney” just sounds so much more benign than “Bankruptcy Attorney.”

  11. “But ‘Consumer Protection Attorney’ just sounds so much more benign than ‘Bankruptcy Attorney.’”

    To some ears, perhaps, but bankruptcy lawyers I like just fine. When I hear “consumer protection attorney” I think of class action plaintiffs lawyers. I’m glad to learn you’re not one of them. (No offense to any class action plaintiffs lawyers reading. Some of my best friends, yada yada yada.)

  12. I just noticed that you are writing at Nine Moons, Brother Seth. I look forward to reading more of your anti-Babylonianism.

  13. Thanks John.
