I asked the question over at Aardvarks and Asshats:

What was the exact time and place where you first heard of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle?

It’s one of the more entertaining questions that you can ask of a physics person.

It’s all a question of how long it takes them to make the connections.  It’s a hoot.

About tomorrow…

Ok, I’m a good sport.  From Aggie at Hookers and Booze, I was commanded to follow these instructions…

1 – Go to Wikipedia and hit random. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 – Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use Photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.
5 – Post it on your blog along with these instructions, and trackback or link to your post in these comments.

I may have added three extra words to the title of the band/artist.  Sue me.

What is it about the liberal mindset?  Pick any one cause that they feel passionately about.

They make their pitch with all their logic and reasoning.  Now assume that you disagree with their conclusion or chosen approach.

What do they do?  They assume that you are:   (a) an extremist, (b) a dangerous extremist, (c) a hired-by-the-republicans thug, (d) just ignorant, or (e) they are not getting their point across.

Never once has it occurred to them that there are those of us who are educated, understand what they are saying, aren’t thugs, aren’t extremists;  We just think their argument is bullsh*t.

A recent poll finds Americans more concerned about the economy than global warming and in fact more people are finding that they don’t believe it is a real phenomenon.

“It’s a conundrum. You can’t just say to those interested in global warming that they need to do a better job of PR because they have been trying so hard,” Newport said. “Al Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. He made a widely seen movie, and his book sold many copies. Yet, with all that, it hasn’t worked. You would have to say that, somehow, they’re not getting the message across.”

Another facet to their dysfunction is the idea that White House websites for snitching is somehow different than big brother and McCarthy-ism.  They can’t understand how we don’t agree that it is ok.  Snitching on health care rumors.  This is the path to transparency… ohhhh, yeahhhhhhh.


I’d like to think of him as a good friend, because he’s into goth-baiting and other fun stuff, and he’s just plain good people – McGoo posted a wonderful pic that he found somewhereGo read his stuff here – it’s a lot of vile tripe, but it’s the good kind of vile tripe – not the stuff you see coming out of our elected officials.


I would have howled, laughed until I wet my pants, and blacked out from lack of oxygen as I cackled.  Had I been there.  Hillary had some questions asked of her – about her husband’s thoughts as he did her job.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s temper flared on Monday when a Congolese university student asked her for her husband’s thinking on an international financial matter.

A week after former President Bill Clinton traveled to North Korea to secure the release of two detained American journalists and stole the limelight from the start of his wife’s first trip to Africa, Clinton was clearly displeased by the question at town hall forum in Kinshasa.

“You want me to tell you what my husband thinks?” she replied incredulously when the male student asked her what “Mr. Clinton” thought of World Bank concerns about a multi-billion-dollar Chinese loan offer to the Congo.

My husband is not secretary of state, I am,” an obviously annoyed Clinton said sharply. “If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channeling my husband.”

The question was left unanswered as the moderator of the event quickly moved on.

My husband is not secretary of state, I am…

Hillary, maybe you should send Bill a memo because you’re still not getting through – too  much of his ego is in the way.  Looks good though – having him do your job for you.

Thanks to DailyMail.co.uk – for once calling it like it is:

Indeed, from the whole tawdry affair only one clear winner has emerged – an exuberant Bill Clinton – even if, according to an insider, ‘the joke in the White House was that the girls were safer in North Korea than on the plane going home with Bill’.


Check this out.

The No. 2 Senate Democrat said Sunday that he’s “open” to health care reform that doesn’t include a government-run “public option,” the latest indication that the Democrats’ package could be scaled back as Senate negotiators try to hammer out a bipartisan compromise and constituents flood town halls to express discontent with the current legislation.

When you haggle for something, do you start with your desired asking price?  No, you don’t.  You ask for something ridonkulously high so when you get closer to what you want it looks better to the other person.

The moonbats have shown great skill in manipulating the populace – do you really think that they’ve been this clueless?   I’ve been operating under the assumption that they actually are this stupid, but now I’m not so sure.

Smurf Seppuku

My daughter drew on herself with felt markers today.  I mean DREW on herself.  Coming into the room it appeared that she had bloodied and black/blued her legs from the ankles to mid-thigh.  She requested that we help her get it off, so we filled a tub and let her go to it.

Funny thing is, felt marker in huge quantities takes on a life of it’s own, even in a tub of water.  When the tub drained, it looked like a Smurf had committed bloody suicide or a muppet flung itself into a snarling woodchipper.

Thus was the title of this post born… after a few blog hits and search words, I realized that perhaps folks might be coming here to find out about Seppuku, which is disembowelment and if you are lucky, someone to second you and take your head.  Pretty gross, pretty messy, but if you were a disgraced Samurai, it was just the thing to do.  So much for “I’ll do better next time.”

So, for information on Seppuku, look here.

Obama has limited options at this upcoming convention but he really has one choice:  Be gracious and hope that he’ll see some of Hillary’s supporters rub off and stick to him (which is a tough uphill battle).  He’d prefer to have Hillary just give him her delegates and fade out, but instead is doomed to go through the motions of forming alliances with the Clintons.

The Democratic Par-tay is possibly unaware of the upcoming interpersonal dynamics… who knows?   On MSNBC’s First Read:

From NBC’s Mark Murray and Domenico Montanaro
Hillary Clinton [is] telling supporters at a gathering in California that she wants a “strategy” to have her delegates heard at the convention, as reported by Huffington Post and today ABC News. She said such a strategy would be cathartic, and would actually unify the party.

“Because I know from just what I’m hearing, that there’s incredible pent up desire,” Clinton said. “And I think that people want to feel like, ‘OK, it’s a catharsis, we’re here, we did it, and then everybody get behind Sen. Obama.’ That is what most people believe is the best way to go.” She also said in the video that she was working out those details with the Obama campaign and the DNC, and that no decisions have been made.

She said she wasn’t running for President either, right?  All she has to do is show up, and if there are enough people still cheering for her (a sure-fire Clinton-pleaser of an activity) she can still request placement on the roll for nomination.  She hasn’t committed anything as of yet.  Her ball is still in play regardless of conclusions people have drawn.

Jonah Goldberg had lots of positive things to say which gives good feelings about this upcoming DNC Convention.

… reporter Joshua Green picks through the internal e-mail viscera of the Clinton campaign and finds that the destructive nature of the Clintons is not always aimed at their enemies.

Indeed, shocking as this may be to people naive enough to believe that a woman with no executive experience, no security clearance, no significant successes under her belt, who was catapulted to presidential prominence solely because her husband treated her like a cautionary tale in a country-music song, was nonetheless a co-president for eight years: It turns out that the Bride of Clintonstein was an awful chief executive. Infected by her husband’s passive-aggressiveness, she stood paralyzed as the HMS Hillary took on more and more water, until even the string quartet on the deck was leaping for the flotation devices.

Well that is interesting, isn’t it?  Continuing on:

As Green pulls memo after memo from the great white’s carcass like so many Florida license plates, we discover that the Clintons knew long, long ago that they couldn’t beat Barack Obama to the nomination. But winning was secondary, carnage was king. You might even say of her decision to stay in the race: This was no polling accident.

The Clintons adopted a deliberate strategy of diminishing Obama’s victories, and Mark Penn, Clinton’s trusted campaign manager, pushed for a strategy of ridiculing their black, funny-named opponent as insufficiently American. Such memos, if found in the underbelly of a Republican campaign, would be immortalized by the liberal establishment as permanent proof of conservative racism. When plucked from the bowels of a Democratic campaign, the response is some mild tsk-tsking.

Which makes me wonder… could the Clinton strategy be to keep hope alive among her supporters, behave civilly and in a conciliatory fashion, and then at the convention try to make a plausible case for Obama being a hopeless candidate for the presidency?

Oh yes, Obama.  Don’t turn around.  Goldberg finishes up:

But fixating on the plot is never a good idea with monster flicks. The point is that the story is always the same. And so it is this time as well. Bill and Hillary are back. And forever more, Barack Obama won’t be able to take a shower without fear of that curtain snapping back, as a woman – or is that a man? – prepares to plunge the knife into his back.

Japanese Scientists, Origami Masters Hope to Launch Paper Airplane From Space

Yeah, too cool.

Right up until you read that there is no way to prove a damn thing because they can’t track it.


Well why the hell didn’t you just take the money and go find the best sushi house in the country and invite the neighborhood? I’d show up for that! Talk about literally throwing money away. That better be some damn fine origami paper.

Feeling a tad cynical today. Lotsa reasons, no simple answer. So enjoy a home-grown demotivator. Click it and it’ll open larger (approx 450kb).


More on Hil Clinton from Dick Morris… man is she ever scary. If I had to choose between her and eating broken glass I’d first ask if I could have ketchup with my meal. Knowing how to speak is good, as long as you know when to shut up.

Fun for the whole family. Warning kids, do not experiment on each other. The cat will work just as well.
