Astonishing Revelation!

I'm sure you've all heard the recent news about the elected government official, who is on record several times vowing to do "zero", but was recently found to have been doing "one".

This has led to a rather heated debate from both sides, with the official's supporters noting that "One is equal to zero, if you take both of them to the zero-th power!"

Whereas the detractors have retorted that "'One' is clearly not equal to 'zero'! They are clearly two distinct numbers, and that "one" minus "zero" is almost "two"!

I, for one, can't believe that things have gotten this bad, and vow to stay angry about this until the exact same thing happens!

Falwell turns attention to "debunking" global warming

The most recent issue of the The National Liberty Journal which is mailed, often times unbidden, to nearly every Evangelical church in the nation was devoted to the "Myth" of Global Warming.

Included is a speech from Jerry Falwell deriding "green" Christians, and used quotes from the Genesis 8:22 as evidence that the cycles of the season could not be altered by man.

More worrisome, is the inclusion of a large section of a document titled "A Skepticís Guide to Debunking Global Warming Alarmism", authored by Senator James Inhofe, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works.

While the entirety of the document is not included in the print edition, a reference to the url above to read the rest, is.

My favorite chart is the one I included above. A chart which clearly illustrates a continuous *positive* temperature change, yet formatted to make it appear that the trend fluctuates "up and down".


No story, just a collection of plugs.

First off, my sister has made and submitted a video to current TV regarding the issue of cousins marrying. For those unfamiliar, they accept short "pods" on subjects, and then the highest rated of those get a chance to actually be on the channel. (Full Disclosure: I am featured fairly prominently in it, presumably because of my awesome hair style.)

Secondly, I would like to highly recommend this comic. Choosing an example was difficult, but I went with this one as it's nice to hear someone say a thing outloud which has always secretly bugged me, truly fantastical.

Finally, I'd like to send a little traffic (all 3 of you) to the man who has provided my personal soundtrack at work for the past couple weeks Jonathan Coulton.

"Code Monkey", "Re: Your Brains" and "Skullcrusher Mountain" are all instant classics. I also have a weak spot for his emo version of "baby got back". You can listen to all the songs there for free, and throw him a couple bucks if you like em.


So I spend a non-trivial amount of time moping around wishing that there was a force acting against me. Oh the joy to learn that somewhere there is three pounds of sloppy brain goop which spends all day and night launching plot after plot against me, completely fixated upon my ultimate destruction.

You see, if that were to be true, I would then be forced to spend my own days constantly wielding my own brain goop in a feverish defense of my way of life, bringing my own shining brain goop sword about just in time, moment after moment, wetly smacking aside the fast flung strategms harmlessly aside into a neighbors yard where it then becomes their problem.

Yesterday morning, a force attempted to impose itself on me, and if left unrepelled, would surely inconvenience me slightly, forever.



An advantage to working from home, as is often pointed out to me, is not having to commute in horrible weather.

One downside, which has never pointed out to me, is that without having to worry about my own travel safety, I find that my thoughts constantly wander to the travel safety of others. Which, unlike the steering of my own vehicle, I have absolutely no control over...

In any case, here's hoping you all get home safe.
