    Knucklehead, eh? Hey PZ, Brandon called you knucklehead! I think you can’t let that one sit. Just sayin’ ;)

    Look, I took the liberty of examining that bill when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting on its perch in the first place was that it had been NAILED there.

    They did this despite the fact the I notified those two knucklehead about the filing

    Here is someone who does not proofread his own text, complaining about others not reading his words.

    Hooray for Florida. We’re not as stupid as Texas. In fact our new public school science standards are perhaps the best in the nation. They make evolution one of the big ideas of science. Our old standards didn’t even mention the word “evolution”.

    I give PZ a lot of credit for linking to a blog post that refers to him as a knucklehead. :)

    Congratulations, Florida. Would that our own decision in Texas had been as wise.

    The fight goes on.

    No kings,

    MikeG@#1: I laughed out loud. Thank you sir. I wonder who else will get the reference.

  8. Beeblebrox says

    Ah, upon re-reading the comments, I notice cpsmith indeed knew the reference, and made a humorous quip of his own.

    And America’s wang narrowly escapes being the dumbest state in the union, again.

    At least we can still point and laugh at Texas.

    It’s not, pinin, it’s passed on! This bill is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late bill! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed it to the bulletin, it would be pushing up daisies! Its metabolical processes are of interest only to historians! It’s hopped the twig! It’s shuffled off this mortal coil! It’s run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible!

    Yea! We’re finally winning a race for something here in Texas! We didn’t win the race to have to worst education program – came in 2nd on that one. But now we’ve got a real chance to be most unfrackingbelievably nuts in the nation with regards to messing up Educational science standards!! And, we get to take the rest of the nation down with us by screwing up textbooks for all!! Yes.

    Sometimes, sometimes, I am ashamed to be a Texan.
