New Find Or Sign Of Desperation

We already have pygmies, so what makes this a different species? "Hobbit" Joins Human Family Is this really a discovery or just a sign of desperation for the supporters of a 19th Century theory that was developed in ignorance of genetics? A theory that is slowly losing the dominance it once had. Perhaps, like phrenology and abiogenesis, it is time to retire this theory?

This device could either save civilization--or destroy it.

"Mr Altman said he was inspired to make the device after noticing how human interaction suffers when people watch television in public places."

I can think of some places where human interaction might not be a good thing. Remember what effect the Babel fish had when it was discovered!

Uncarrot Tarot: Annotations

I don't believe in fortune telling, but I have a theory of why some do. It involves constructed narratives. Anyway I felt this was funny enough it ought to be shared. Be sure to check out the complete index. Quite amusing.

The Science May Be Pseudo, But At Least It Is PC

I'm pretty sure this story (Female hormones decide research skills of male scientists!) is pure bunk. If their assumption is correct, all the worlds top mathematicians should be women, not men. I don't even think they have their brain theory right. I'm fairly certain math and analytical thinking is a left-side activity.

The last paragraph is interesting, though. I suspect the comment about women in social sciences having high testosterone is a reference to the prediliction of lesbians trying to use academics to force their beliefs on everyone. Maybe not. But I am sure this study was largely a product of PC bias and way to much free research grant money.

Hunt for Grand Theft Auto pirates

Does anyone else but me find it ironic that a company that makes a game called Grand Theft, a game about stealing things is all upset about having their game stolen? I think its funny.

But Aren't All Archeologists Grave Robbers?

Let's see, we've got spousal abuse, child abuse, animal abuse.... I don't know if there is such a thing as plant abuse yet (though my wife commits it all the time) and now there is corpse abuse. The interesting thing here is that the "abuse" stopped once the corpses were reburied. Does that mean the graves are now un-desecrated?

The modern legal system, devoid of any moral base, is getting stranger and stranger.

Those Dem Catholics

I know many catholics are democrats. It must be tough to support a party that officially undermines your beliefs. Sounds like it's even getting tough for a pseudo-catholic like Kerry.

I know that the republicans aren't exactly a godly group themselves, but at least they don't have any deliberately anti-Christian planks in their platform.

The Culture Wars Have Arrived In Europe

Slowly people are beginning to wake up to the inheirent hypocrisy and intolerance of the socio-political left. The word "tolerence" itself is nothing more than a red flag to wave at people who don't agree with you. The naked truth is that liberals are really anti-God. It's the only possible explanation that adequately addresses liberal hypocracy. The culture wars have arrived in Europe. Better late then never.

Election Fraud As campaign Strategy

I must confess I'm ambivalent about this election. Yes Bush is good and Kerry is evil, which is proven by the level of pure liberal rage if nothing else. Yet, despite my better instincts, I've been sampling the usual mindless liberal crap that floats through the blogs on the net when I began to notice a disturbing trend.

I was looking mostly at web/css design sites (who's owners all seem to be of the same political stripe) when I followed some links related to the actual voting process. A lot of the discussions were about how one can register and vote by mail, when the various state deadlines were and how restrictive they were at the polls.

Now I'll admit I am sometimes slow on the uptake. I tend to take life at face value. But in among all the usual left-wing extremist paranoia and mythology about voter disenfranchisement and evil republicans turning voters away (somehow, especially, in districts run by democrats), it gradually dawned on me what these nice fair-minded liberals were talking about.

They were talking about how they could vote in multiple states.

Suddenly all this talk in the news about voter disenfranchisement and evil republicans makes sense. They're actually trying to discourage any kind of challenge to, or even close inspection of, the poll results.

We've long known that the dead vote democratic (especially in Chicago) and that illegals vote democratic (especially in LA) now it seems that college students (these were mostly college students) vote democratic where and as often as they like. At least if they can find a state that will take mail in ballots.

The terrorists don't have to blow anything up. They can just walk into any number of states that don't require voter ID (and even many that do, but only require those forms that are easily forged) and send multiple ballots in by mail, and vote themselves into power. The democrats seem to be doing everything they can to help them out.

I shouldn't be surprised though. When you embrace relativism in all its forms, there is no such thing as truth...only the exercise of raw naked power.

Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam

In 1980, not long after Mt. St. Helens erupted, a high school band from Enid OK, with much fear and trepidation, made the trip to Portland OR, to march in the Rose Festival. Seeing Mount St. Helen acting up again (Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam - Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument) brings back all kinds of wierd flashbacks, from marching on football fields with face masks while kicking up ash, to watching The Empire Strikes Back, only to have the movies stopped in the middle warning us that another eruption had taken place. Afterwards, leaving the theater, we saw giant flakes of ash falling like snow on a warm summer night.

That was a long time ago. Sometimes its easy to forget that those events were all real. But then you get these reminders. Mount St. Helens is still there--at least for now.

When Science Goes Insane

From fish farts, to scientifically verifying the food on the floor 5-second rule, to a patented comb-over technique, it's all here. Science prize celebrates fish flatulence, hula hoops | CNET Now doesn't that just fill you with confidence in man's ability to understand the chaotic world he lives in?

Again with the predictions...

Three Cosmic Explosions Could Precede Supernovae I hope they're more accurate with this than they have been prediction earthquakes and erupting volcanoes...

Does That Mean We Have To Call Them Mortamins?

Guess mom was wrong after all. Vitamin Supplements Might Raise Risk of Early Death Better not tell my daughter, she already gags on her Flintstones.
