[O]n the first day God says, "Let there be light!" and light appears. 

On the second day God creates an expanse (firmament) to separate the waters above (the sky) from those below (the ocean/abyssos). 

On the third day God commands the waters below to recede and make dry land appear, and fills the earth with vegetation. God then puts lights in the sky to separate day from night to mark the seasons and creates the sun and stars on the fourth day.  

On the fifth day, God creates sea creatures and birds of every kind and commands them to procreate.

On the sixth day, God creates land creatures of every kind. Man and woman are created last, after the entire world is prepared for them; they are created in the image of God, and are given dominion and care over all other created things.

God rests on the seventh and final day of creation as Sabbath, which he marks as holy.


[On] the 279th day, Caroline Offutt asked God to blow off the 4th and 5th days and have three days of rest...but stopped short of the sixth day, being a smart geek, to ensure her corporealness and ensure that she be in a position to make the request...and on the 279th day Gods' Board of Directors and Compensation Committee approved Caroline's request retraoctive to the 3rd seventh day.

This 8-K filing confirms why Offutt and Langone have no confidence in the media side of the business...and ignominiously further confirmed by yesterday's conference call  and q3 numbers. This is very disturbing.
