I’m not feeling up to posting much in the way of original content so I just posted a bunch more recipes under the (you guessed it) Recipes page.

[… time passes…]

It is now “later”, and after a refreshing episode of “Burn Notice”, I have reversed my apathy to somewhat encouraged because being apathetic is just too much work.

If you are looking for that something interesting, you might not have seen a web-search engine called Ms. Dewey.

She flexes a ‘tude. She isn’t half bad looking, either, which just begs for chauvinist questions like I propose below. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, just go there, ok? You’ll need sound to enjoy it. And yes, it is a real search engine. Try a few more interesting search terms, like:

  1. what is your bra size
  2. oral sex
  3. are you wearing underwear
  4. panty hamster
  5. menage a trois

Really, there is a reason for choosing those options. They were a good spread throughout the spectrum of “naughty” and pushing the envelope to get interesting responses.

Note the question that brought out the gun…

Somehow this is of concern to those who are convinced that otherwise we’ll all live forever. CO2’s magical turning point where Earth will turn us into charcoal briquettes.

Simultaneously the coolest thing and the scariest thing almost, but not quite, ever. Women take that top slot. Sure it’s an article from a long time ago, but even Maxwell’s equations are new if you’ve never seen them before. Get a grip. The thing about Segways and this thing are my worries of a sudden power cable breakage…. ooops, he fall down.

An interesting but not entirely correct take on rising wheat and rice prices and the link to biofuels. The idea that “you can’t turn a rice paddy into a cornfield” means that corn isn’t driving part of the issue is specious. By using more and more corn, people will turn to OTHER sources of of carbohydrates, the grain staples, examples of which are wheat and rice. But his point that more people are coming out of poverty is (ahem) food for thought. Thankfully he does mention wheat rust.

So what’s going on?

The answer lies in the biggest, most under-reported story of our lives:

Today, more human beings are emerging from poverty than at any time in history. If the present trend continues, within our lifetimes — or certainly within our children’s lifetimes — the majority of human beings will have emerged from poverty and joined the middle class.

Other interesting links counter to his stance or revolving around the idea of bad biofuel ideas:
