So what do you think of Windows 8?

Naturally Bill Gates thinks it’s greeat! I and thousands like me on the other hand am condemned to suffer through the weeks of ensuing bugs and glitches and associated unoredictable total clusterfucks it will have while we’re paid peanuts:

Do you believe in God or Aliens?

It’s become a regular godless ritual to scan the search results for “God” every Sunday morning. Hey, being an FTB minion has its perks and its tedium. Most of the articles are written by clergy with a message for believers the author feels will help them in their daily struggles, mixed in with the now unavoidable ideological nonsense masked …

Sleazy Joe Walsh doubles down on the crazy

I would have loved to post a quote and link from Joe Walsh claiming his female injured war veteran opponent insulted women, but I can’t. Because out of the blue my mouse suddenly stopped copying and pasting. The PC has been rebooted, the mouse has been replaced, it does everything else except copy and paste. It’s just …

Crazy Joe Walsh rides to Obama’s rescue

You knew the crazy teabagging congressional caucus couldn’t go long keeping their crazy science-y ideas to themselves about the mysterious lady parts. After a dreadful summer topped off by Todd Akin, Quasi-MD., the first debate and subsequent polling seem to finally turn Romney’s way. Which is why I bet crazy Joe Walsh is being told to politely and …

Earth-sized planet found lurking in data around … Alpha Centauri

Acen

We are living in the greatest age of planetary discovery since Galileo looked at Jupiter, and that age may be on the verge of delivering one of the most exciting discoveries imaginable: earth-like planet[s] around Alpha Centauri, AKA Rigel Kent or ACen. Just the name Centauri brings on dreamy eyes in the sci-fi and space exploration community alike. …

Sit very still and they won’t suspect you

Tagg

Via Balloon Juice, I think this is a very rigid and creepy looking Tagg or possibly Josh Romney, one of Mitt’s spawn anyway, watching Tuesday’s debate. Not to pick on a candidate’s kid, but since he’s an arrogant prick who seeks out the limelight, Romney JR has earned an exception. … You can almost see …

Fascinating ideas on the history of Titan and Saturn

PIA09776

Look at Jupiter and you see a mini solar system right down to quasi-analogues of the planets, even a hint of scattered disk and Kuiper Belt objects. But look at Saturn and you see one large Jovian like moon, a hell of a lot of beat to shit frozen moonlets, and billions of icy shards.  The systems …

Cry bias and unleash the dogs of war

Two conflicting themes now emerging on the right to explain last night’s debate performance by Romney. It was 1) a clear draw and therefore a winner for the challenger, 2) Obama got the upper hand because of liberal bias in general and the moderator specifically. What might surprise my colleagues on the other side of …

Romney blew it

whowonD2

  It’s sad that our undecided voters in swing states might make their decision based on a few minutes or even a single line in a so-called debate, but that may have happened last night and Romney blew it. The only question I have on Romney’s wobble is why?

Trojans

jupiter-asteroid-580x303

I was exposed to MRSA taking care of a sick person and spent the last few days making sure it didn’t take. It’s a big deal because I take a drug called Humira that’s supposed to weaken my immune system. Any infection that gains a foothold could spread fast. But so far, so good! Lots of news, …
