I was going to write something about Ebola, but the stupid out there is so strong it burns. Look I know that I’ve had a total of one course in Microbiology, but clearly I know more about the subject than 90% of Congress. Seriously, I hope I that Ron Paul, Joe Heck, and Howard Dean […]
It’s just not a patriotic holiday without Stan Freberg. A couple years ago I posted a version of his thoughts on Columbus. Perhaps you prefer this take on the events:
Why yes, that is Andy Samberg as “Steve.” Ok, I get it. Professional sports are highly profitable. Millions of dollars, and that’s just players’ salaries. So if professional sports is that profitable, why does the public have to pay to build and maintain the damn stadiums?
Fun fact: one of the geniuses behind that… thing was the actor who played little Will Robinson on Lost in Space and Lanier in Babylon 5. In Closing: Is the children learning?
Turns out chemistry isn’t as hard as I feared.

No, just too tacky. Urban Outfitters swears that their new vintage style Kent State sweatshirt isn’t meant to look like it’s spattered with blood, merely has “discoloration.” So what do you think: ignorance or bad sense of humor? Which would be worse? Don’t try to order one, they’re sold out. Lyrics. In Closing: follow the money, […]
H/T to Comrade Misfit for pointing out this guy! Anyway, it ties in to this item from our local news: “Cyndi Lauper: ‘If young people don’t discover Broadway, then Broadway will die’”
Happy Labor Day. Do you like weekends? 40 hour [theoretical] workweeks? The ability to say you won’t stand for employer abuses? Safe working conditions? Limited class sizes for your school kids? Thank a union member.
The Russians think they have found life. Life, on the outside of the International Space Station. It’s from Earth, all right, they just don’t know how it got there. In Closing: hopefully a few last words on Ferguson, the militarization of our police, the death of the right to peaceably assemble, and the press (but it won’t […]
It does look like things are getting a lot more complicated in Ferguson. And that’s before the Fed’s version of the autopsy*, and before any grand jury sees evidence. The Genie’s out of the bottle now. In Closing: imagine that, mandatory insurance didn’t fix some of the stuff it was supposed to; fake news reinvented; feminism’s benefits for […]
