Today’s QOTD comes from Leg-iron: On the whole, milk is a better option for those things even if it does involve fondling a cow’s boobs. A twisted post on milk products and a video to boot.

Quote of the Day

This QOTD (from this source) is actually from a couple of weeks ago.  It appeared in The Smallest Minority, a blog I highly recommend and one that I’ve recently added to my “daily dose” in the RSS reader. No doubt the warmist crowd will be quick to express outrage at this blatant confusion of global […]

Food (or perhaps, drink) for thought

Legiron discusses and links to an in-depth post about breast cancer.  The question is, “Why do women in the Western world die from breast cancer at a rate of about 1 in 10, while women in China die of breast cancer die at a rate of about 1 in 10,000?” The answer appears to be […]

A different kind of solar energy

Via GeekPress, comes this article about a different kind of solar energy.  OK, that isn’t really correct; solar energy is solar energy.  The “different” part is the way the energy is harnessed and used.  From the article: Broadly speaking, there have been two approaches to capturing the sun’s energy: photovoltaics, which turn the sunlight into […]

New Year, New Cheese

I don’t do new year’s resolutions.  I’ve written before about it, but the short version is that I see New Year’s Day as an accident of chronology.  We are roughly in the same place, relative to the sun, we were 365¼ days ago.  Not the most rational reason to embark on potentially life-altering projects.  Besides, […]
