This guy’s so determined he’s willing to leave his wife and four kids.
Did you know that it was eighty-six billion dollars? The National Journal thinks it was.
Layers and layers of fact checkers.
Apparently, it turns women into hookers.
No, New York Post, there’s no such thing. If they shot her b00bs in weightlessness, it was probably in a parabolic aircraft.
Somehow, this situation seems like a metaphor for Democrat policies.
Finally. I’m sure that you, like I have always wondered by Mary wasn’t depicted in her safety helmet as she rode the donkey to Bethlehem.
What headlines would look like there.
Obviously, I disagree with the one on global warming. “Consensus” is not a scientific term. And even if it were, it’s not close to 90%.
Obama hits all-time lows:
Obama’s woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues. Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.
OK, so they don’t agree with him, they don’t believe or trust him, they don’t think he’s competent, they don’t admire him, or think him a strong and decisive leader. But they like him.
I don’t know how to explain this cognitive dissonance except it’s the last bastion of the fear of being thought a racist.
It’s off to a rocky start.
Sometimes they can love you to death.
There’s an underwater hotel down in Florida for divers, with windows. They had to put curtains on them, because guests were complaining about the dolphins watching them engaged in amorous activity.

You should read all. It’s quite an interesting article on Delphinadae behavior in human history.
Don’t worry, wildlife would kick undead ass:
…zombies are essentially walking carrion, and Mother Nature doesn’t let anything go to waste.

It’s really worth a read:
North America’s large mammal predators would be more than a match for zombies. We have two bear species, brown (or grizzly) and black bears. Male brown bears can weigh in at 1,000 pounds. They are not afraid of humans. They can deliver a bite of 1200 pounds per square inch and have long, sharp claws designed to rip open logs and flip boulders in search of insects and other small critters to eat. They would easily tear apart rotting zombie flesh. Black bears are much smaller and typically run from humans, but even a black bear, when approached or cornered, would make short work of a zombie. Both bear species have an incredible sense of smell and both love to eat carrion, so even if zombies didn’t approach them, the bears eventually would learn that these walking bags of flesh make good eating.
Like black bears, gray wolves are very shy of humans and typically run away at the first sight of us. Nor are they strangers to scavenging. They’d soon take advantage of the easy pickings presented by lumbering zombies. Coyotes are far less shy than wolves and can happily live alongside humans, including in the heart of our cities. These intelligent canids would quickly learn that they could take down zombies one by one, especially the eastern populations of coyote, which are larger and bolder due to past interbreeding with wolves and domestic dogs.
Though I’d point out that it they think black bears are shy around humans, they’ve never run across one in Alaska. They’re very aggressive up there — Alaskans seem to fear them more than grizzlies, which will generally leave you alone if you don’t surprise them. I suspect it’s because they’re much less used to humans, with the low population density. It’s almost like they’re a different species from the lower forty nine. Alaska would be a particularly gruesome place to be walking dead. The moose alone would make quick work of them.
Is gravity not quite inverse R squared? That would be a pretty amazing result if it’s true.
No, it’s not a big libertarian conspiracy.
It actually does have elevators. I don’t think I blogged about it at the time, partly because it seemed so hard to believe that a building could get all the way from planning to completion with no one pointing out the problem.
Every day, I get offers for: acting classes, teeth whitening, massage packages with reflexology and aromatherapy, microdermabrasion facials, tanning salons, exfoliation…
It’s like they’re trying to live down to the expectations of the rest of the country.

Are you the kind of person likely to be suckered into a conversation with a Twitter-bot?
Only she could say this with a straight face: “…the president is one of the most practically non-partisan presidents I have seen in the White House.”
Amazing. Comedy gold.
Well, if by “a few short years” you mean perhaps centuries, maybe. On the other hand, it’s more likely that Chicago could be under a mile of ice.
One of the most amusingly stupid categories of spam I get is emails about how “Congress passed a bill” or “The president signed a law” resulting in lower auto insurance or (as they often idiotically say) “driving” rates. They sometimes try to tie it into current events. Here are two nutty subject lines today:
“President’s G8 Summit Meeting Yields Lower Auto Ins. For All,”
“Following meet with Putin, President announces lower auto ins. for all.”
Sadly, there are enough idiots out there that this probably does work. Until we come up with some cost for emailing, spam will persist.
…in science fiction. H. G. Wells was as ignorant of evolution as any creationist is.
Asking the important questions: whence the arrival of the phrase?
Short answer — blame Frank J.
It looks like it may have been planted.
Mysteriouser and mysteriouser.
What is with people with that name and imprisoning people? #Cuba #Cleveland #Mysterious
Is it possible? Even if it’s very unlikely, it’s such a high payoff that it’s worth devoting some resources to. In the mean time, I’m much more focused on making it affordable to just get into orbit.
I like me some chiles, but these people are nuts:
Mr. Bosland claims to have broken the two million Scoville mark in February 2012 with his Trinidad Moruga Scorpion. That is the same strength as police-grade pepper spray — a substance no sensible person would let travel through his digestive tract. Mr. Bosland hasn’t yet submitted paperwork to Guinness for the official record, and his claim really burns up Mr. de Wit, who insists his pepper is still the hottest. Only chemical chromatography that measures several samples for their average level of capsaicin, the chemical that gives peppers their bite, can establish a record claim. But Mr. Scott, one of the few people on Earth who has tasted both varieties, says the Moruga Scorpion is clearly hotter.
I used to grow habaneros on the patio (and I still have a container of dried ones, years old, to spice up a chili), but I hadn’t realized that they were now growing peppers in the mega-Scoville range.
Yeah, that national conversation about guns is coming along just fine:
Eddie Maxwell sent a mass email to state legislators at 10:54 p.m. on Jan. 27, warning them that even attempting to introduce a gun control bill was, in his opinion, a violation of state law.
Mitchell responded from his public, ALHouse.gov email account at 11:59 p.m., telling Maxwell: “Your folk never used all this sheit (sic) to protect my folk from your slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed (sic), imported criminal-minded kin folk.”
“That’s not the type of reply I expect to receive from a state legislator,” Maxwell replied on Feb. 11.
Obviously his expectations are too high.
…has converted to Islam.
Of course he has.
And no, I don’t really know what kind of conclusions to draw from this, about either him or Islam.
Can you do it and survive? Asking the important questions.
