Almost not funny

I’ve heard that good humor is good because there’s an element of truth in it somehow.  Unfortunately, I seem to be finding a lot of these jokes these days that are almost not funny because instead of having an element of truth in them they’re the absolute bona fide truth: Q:  How many TSA employees […]

Trying to catch Santa in the act

Why else would I still be up at 3 AM on Christmas Morning?  Other than I had to go outside with the dog.  (Something about that -11° wind chill dampens her enthusiasm for the “doing her business” process.  Then there’s the “how do I squat to pee when the snow is already higher than my […]

Merry Christmas to all

The Head Rat and I are blessed this year that our family is home, together, and safe for the holidays.  We know how fortunate we are.  We know that some of our regular readers have family in harm’s way on the other side of the globe.  We have been thinking of you and them, and […]


Sunday Night Link Dump

I spent the afternoon splitting logs with a maul for my folks.  The last time I did that was at least 10 years ago.  I’m not feeling too bad right now, but I’m guessing I’ll have a bit of trouble getting out of bed in the morning. I’m not sure how he got it, but […]

Lord Monckton on Climategate

If you’ve got half an hour, it would be worth your time to watch this video.  I find it rather refreshing to hear Lord Monckton labelling the principals of the AGW fraud   the criminals that they are.  And then back up the charges.  I was also tickled by his statement that these individuals “call themselves […]

Cost/Benefit Analysis

tjic on whether or not taking drastic measures to stop global warming (and wreck our economy in the process) are worth it: Here’s the consciousness raising exercise I want each of you to do: when you wake up tomorrow, think to yourself “OM*G – what if it was 1.1 ° warmer? Wouldn’t that be horrible? […]

You’d better change them lightbulbs

Did you know the EPA has a Criminal Investigations Division?  Or that they are stocking up on Glock pistols? Now that they’ve declared themselves Lord and Master of everything that breathes,  I find the notion of armed EPA agents a bit disturbing.

This just in…

I thought I was done for the night, but this post from Coyote is priceless, as is his postscript, In the language of mathematics (I mentioned before I am in the middle of Goedel-Escher-Bach) if actually aiding someone is “helping,” then I guess organizing people to help is meta helping, and lobbying government to force […]

The Sunday Night Linkfest

First, a little inspired silliness from Dr. Boli: A letter to the Editor An advertisement for a unique literary service An advertisement for a unique martial arts dojo Second, I was apparently wrong last night about the Obama LSD being deliciously appropriate.  This is deliciously appropriate. Also at Moonbattery, an Economic Stimulus Flow Chart Say […]
