METAMORPHOSIS & TERRORISM

Snodgrass common household roaches.png

One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from  anxious dreams, he discovered that in bed he had been changed into a monstrous verminous bug.

(Franz Kafka)

Robert Burns (no not that Robert Burns you Gaelic idiots) has written a book entitled:

Kafka's Law

If you bother to watch this wonderful Q & A, you will see that the focus of Mr. Burn's tome seems to be on Kafka's The Trial, which might be deduced from the title of the professor's book.

THE PINK PANTHER

I awoke in a fog.

Then I discovered that HBO is free for a day.

And here is Revenge of the Pink Panther.

THE REAL PINK PANTHER.

E DOES NOT EQUAL MC2

I came upon this KO's article that is more than two years old: Conservapedia Disproves E=mc².

I used to be a big fan of Conservapedia; it was more fun than Rush. Really.

This pretend encyclopedia was fun, because who gives a damn?

YAHOO!

 

Nothin else is going on here except for five or six good blogs that are at least a day old. Except for Hal of course, whom I admire.

Anyway...

First, I lose all my emails on Yahoo.

ERLICH & THE POPULATION BOMB

Then God said "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness so that they may rule over the fish in the sea, and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals and over all the creatures...

HINDSIGHT IS 10-40

I signed up for Smithsonian Magazine.

I end up getting Cars&Idiots, Rolling Stone and ESPN magazines besides The Smithsonian.

It makes no sense.

Ten bucks and I keep getting these other magazines and I keep getting these mailings asking me to re-new these other mags I never signed up for!

Anyway, ESPN tells me 6 weeks ago or so that the Twins will eventually win all of 70 games or so all year and end up in the cellar of their division.

MINUTIAE

Helium atom ground state.

Thank you for your patience.

Evidently I mixed Viagra with Mexican Food and experienced 18 hours of heartburn along with extensions of vital organs, not to be mentioned in polite company.

Actually my PC (purchased in July of last year) failed, crashed and died.

SATIRE & BALTIMORE

THE BEST SATIRE

Chris Hayes just performed the best satire concerning these ‘riots’ we have witnessed lately that I have ever viewed on cable news TV.

Like Frank Luntz tells the repubs every day:

It is not what you say, but how you say it.
