Music Monday: Thanks, Johnny

Published on November 24, 2014 By bmagnus

Ladies and Gentlemen, Johnny Cash:   In Closing: moving; a few diet items; I’m not sure how this works (except Obama is black and therefore any race issues are his fault?); as long as we’re on the topic of the President, a couple immigration items; life chances; it’s good to be king CEO; not so […]

Big Bad Shorties

Published on November 13, 2014 By bmagnus

It’s the Food: It turns out that people do pay attention to nutrition labels. That’s a good thing, because soon and very soon obesity will overtake tobacco as the #1 killer of Americans. Have some truth in comic form. Zombies!!: Well sure, they aren’t allowed to try and collect it, but they can still claim you owe it! […]

The Shorties Man

Published on November 4, 2014 By bmagnus

Federal Judge uses Common Sense: It is super effective. Net Neutrality: It’s not dead yet. Our waning privacy: The FBI is trying to scare Congress. The NSA might find themselves near the end of their leash (a girl can dream). Strangest thing you’re likely to read today: I promise. Ok, maybe it’s not a magic […]

Music Monday: Manic

Published on October 20, 2014 By bmagnus

  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 […]

Career Choices for Girls to Consider

Published on October 15, 2014 By bmagnus

Doctor, Minnie Mouse, or Princess? Hmm, so many choices. In Closing: hell froze over; die with a t on the end; to paraphrase, “I didn’t mean any ill intent, only that the military should rise up and put that ****** in his place!”; and a cool way to explore the periodic table.

Shorties Fright

Published on August 2, 2014 By bmagnus

The Monk who Saved Lives: Ittetsu Nemoto. The Priest who Preached Happiness: Let’s hear it once more for Pope Francis. Israel and Palestine: Just a few assorted and random links. You know you want it: Here’s the NSA, privacy, FBI, CIA, War on Terror, and related links. Broken:  immigration and immigration reform problems. Wow: Larry Kudlow seems to have […]

Huh, maybe the old fashioned way that used to work still does work.

The other day, results from a study on diets for diabetics were published. In short, it said that the low fat diets that have been recommended for many years don’t work very well to control diabetes, but the low carbohydrate diets that came before them did: The authors point to the specific failure of the […]

Double Feature

Published on May 15, 2014 By bmagnus

I don’t normally talk about the so-called “rape culture”. However, if what I am reading about what happens on our college campuses is even halfway true, we should all be outraged. All students — regardless of their gender — have a right to attend school without fear of assault, sexual or otherwise. The idea that some […]

Shorties Academy

One last thing on Microbiology: We have perfectly good vaccines that prevent deadly diseases. Use them! Freakin NSA: please, help yourself to the links. Can you feel the love tonight: A wolf falls in love. This is apparently a thing: Maybe I should have waited until Caturday, but heck, enjoy some Catios. TIL: Anderson Cooper […]

Yet More Things I Learned This Semester

Published on May 10, 2014 By bmagnus

Yes, the semester is almost over and that means it’s time to share a few choice thoughts. In General: There are people who are willing to wait for a spot 100 feet closer to the building, even in nice weather. In the meantime, I’ve parked in the next lot over, locked my car, walked to […]
