Today was the anniversary of 9/11.  I can’t say anything other than it was a rather powerful moment in American history, I will never forget it, and yes, I’m still angry about it.  It could not be justified.  It was pure and simple targeting of innocent civilians for it’s own sake and is indefensible and the act of utter worthless cowards.

I still have thoughts returning to the retaliation mentality – scorched earth and lots and lots of salt for the earth.


On to the Lemur Dropping Thursday Special Edition, to be continued hereafter until I’m told to cease and desist or that it is a waste of effort.  Tonight will be “Lemur Droppings Lite” because I’m running on pure fumes, having only had twelve hours sleep since getting up on Monday and it is 1am Friday now.  But I’m cool.

  • Artsy gadget smashing… Gizmodo again.
  • Wooden phone.  Cool, but what about termites?  Perhaps a Motorola/Orkin teamup?
  • I’d just as soon slam my privates in a sliding glass door as go into an anti-sauna.
  • If you know me at all, you know I’m a sucker for Japanese architecture, furniture, boxes, etc.  Here’s some cool older stuff that I will never be able to afford but still appreciate.


I suspect this is Obama’s strategy:

She plunged into a sea of platitudes, and with the powerful breast stroke of a channel swimmer, made her confident way towards the white cliffs of the obvious. – W. Somerset Maugham

If only I had thought of this.  But alas, I didn’t.  Their composition is a work of genius.


The CERN Hadron Collider has nothing on the Giant Animal Smasher (GAS).  I’ve posted the pic because it would be a crying shame if it ever got lost.  Go read Brian Briggs‘ (BB Spot) description of this very important system.  Science will not be denied.

Evolutionary Acceleration Research Institute Ready to Start “Squirrel Smasher”

Don’t know the source on this, but it’s important scientific background on Squirrel Science.

Today, squirrels exist in a universe whose cosmic background temperature is 2.725 degrees Kelvin.  But the background radiation is slowly cooling.  It is straightforward to reason backward and prove conclusively that the first squirrels existed at temperatures of billions of degrees Kelvin 13.732 billions years ago, give or take.

Around about one times ten to the negative thirty-fifth seconds after the Big Bang (an era known to Cosmeticians as “the Good Old Days”), when individual squirrels must have first separated out from the original squirrel-ferret plasma, large numbers of squirrels and anti-squirrels must have been created, according to modern S-theory.  Most of these squirrel/anti-squirrel pairs eventually recombined to become pure energy or transient little puffs of fur, but a slight preponderance of squirrels over anti-squirrels produced the universe that we observe (or run over) today.

There is no truth to the rumor that high energy squirrel collisions generated by the GAS could create a rabbit hole that would swallow the earth and still be hungry for more.  Even higher-energy collisions between squirrels or squirrelly life-forms happen frequently in nature, usually in or around Washington, D.C.


Uh… Ewwwwww. Infected corn. As food. On purpose.

While this is sad, it’s also stupid.
