From Arse Poetica (originally from Harper's), otherwise known as the "Eternal Bosom of Hot Love," comes this list of title options for the new year courtesy of Friends of North Korea's Kim Jong-Il. I'll be modest and say I prefer myself to be "Lode Star of the 21st Century" since I don't have extensive magnanimity nor musical genius and I'm only about two-thirds there on realizing human wisdom.

A question: what happens if one doesn't believe in God, yet he is called "Present-Day God"? Is that an insult? Does that make him go away? Does that make him go away, while having existed in the past and being existent in the future, although as the future unfolds into the present he is constantly disappearing back into the future and the past? If he can never exist in the present, how can he exist in the past?
