As We Argue Over Politics, Nature Reveals A Secret

Sometimes when I get depressed about the inanity of our political system, or the general insanity of humanity, I retreat to science. Logical, sensible, understandable,... science. Always makes me feel better.

Today science made a premeptive strike. There is water on Mars. story

'Nuff Said. Enjoy your tax dollars at work.

Dead Right

The Maximum Leader pointed to this quiz.
My result:

You Should Spend Your Summer on a Road Trip

For you, the summer is all about possibilities. And you're not going to be tied down.

This is the time for you to embark on an epic road trip, with no ultimate destination in mind.

You know you'll have a ton of crazy adventures... at least until you run out of cash!


The best vacation I ever took was a week of driving all over the southwest (Petrified Forest, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Yosemite, Sequoia) with the family. How'd it know?

Inside Joke...

What do you get if you cross WSA and LSS?...

...60% more pink flamingo-y-ness.

That was all I could think of when I saw this last week at the zoo...

I Guess This Will Be My Life...

Seems my in-laws found a kitten that had (apparently) been struck by a car. Two broken legs, a few other, comparably minor injuries. Almost healed now. Once it's fully recovered, we get it. Current photo:

I can expect that this might be my future...


I guess I can live with that...

The Main Stream Media Continues to Show Its Neutrality

...Or something like that.

Seriously, when I read this (Scroll downto heading "After...") in this mornings San Diego Union Tribune, I thought it had to be a joke.

Sadly, it isn't.

Unbeliveable. Un-frickin-believable.

I'll Bet He's Puzzled

Yesterday Barack Obama suggested that he "puzzled by the frenzy" (read the story here) over his remarks concerning the Iraq war. Seems after months of having a strict time table he's now softening (can you say waffling for political expediency??).

Anyways, he was "puzzled" when the media reported it and suggested he was changing.

I'll bet he is puzzled.

Not because a "frenzy" over a presidential candidate chaning his stance is unusual or surprising.

It's because the media reported what he'd said, and actually pointed out that it meant he'd changed his stance.

In other words, the media actually reported something that almost sounds like he's not perfect.

And that must puzzle him.
