Vote For A Cardboard Box!

An item I spotted on my Facebook has, once again, given me a reason not to vote Republican.  Georgia Representative Paul Broun thinks that evolution is a lie "from the pit hell."  Ugh!  And this guy is on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.  We're through the looking glass everybody!

People of Georgia, if a cardboard box is running against this guy, VOTE FOR IT!

Read all about it here.


It's the post-season!  The most wonderful time of the year.

I reviewed some aspects of the season.  The Twins sucked, the Washington Nationals didn't, the one game Wild Card playoffs, a Triple Crown winner, 2009 game 163 between the Twins and the Tigers, and a bunch of other stuff.

Pedantic Moment!

I never use the LOL when in chat or in IM or anywhere.  Except here, but I have to because I'm talking about it.  Look at that!  A pedantic moment while describing a pedantic moment.  How meta!  (Ok, settle down!)  I pointed out how it bugs me when people misuse it.

Science Rocks!

Science-based medicine made it possible to grow an ear and replace the one lost by a patient who had an aggressive form of skin cancer.  Sorry to all you religious types, but science achieved this, not prayer, not wishful thinking, not magic, not energy healing, not blah, blah, blah.

Read all about it ear.  See what I did?  That's a pun!  Or something.
More "Cart Before The Horse" Thinking

I don't think the tape over the mouth puts across the idea as they think it does, but in the field of paranormal "investigation" thinking isn't exactly what these groups are known for.  Oh, I'm such a stinker!
Not having actually established the existence of ghosts, some paranormal "investigators" think it's wrong to deliberately provoke them.  Some less caring groups will try to anger the spirits in order to scare (pun) up some evidence.  It really isn't evidence, it's just more anomalies, which is not proof of anything, but, perhaps, of the gullibility of the "investigators."

Movie Recommendations: Sherlock (2010 & 2012)
Yes, yes, I realize it's a television series, but damn is it good!  Brought to us by some of the minds behind the current 'Doctor Who' series, this is a fascinating reimagining of the classic Conan Doyle detective.  The detective and his co-investigator, Dr. John Watson, are brought up-to-date in today's world.  The six episodes over two seasons are loosely based on the original stories, which makes it fun for Holmes fans to figure out the parallels.

It's good stuff and you can stream it on the Netflix!
