Congratulations to Rick, who is one year closer to the asylum, and justifying his natural grumpiness. Here’s your present, amigo!

Thanks to Kat; and thanks to Paul, for making this World Cup interesting.

Quote of the Day:

“It is a mistake to believe that a science consists in nothing but conclusively proved propositions, and it is unjust to demand that it should. It is a demand only made by those who feel a craving for authority in some form and a need to replace the religious catechism by something else, even if it be a scientific one.”

Sigmund Freud.

  1. nucular scientist
    Some things are peculiar here.

    One is that there are 3 versions of this guy. So he apparently did defect and also was abducted. Then he disclosed a bunch of stuff, apparently because he didn’t know anything.

    Another question I have – if people are not certain about the identity of the guy. can’t they verify that he is a nuclear scientists? It would seem something that’s a little hard to fake.

    1. Easy
      Quantum mechanics easily explains it: there are multiple versions of the scientists, because they all come from parallel universes.

      Maybe they are modeling their nuclear program based on The Prestige? 😉

      1. What Georgie missed

        Both are better than the prequels. 😉

        You know what Revenge of the Sith needed, in order for Lucas to redeem himself? a scene with Jar Jar Binks committing suicide!

        Srsly, that nincompoop not only was obnoxious, but practically handled the galaxy to Palpatine on a platter —oh, there goes my inner geek yapping again; pardon me 🙂

    Phosphorous makes for a decent doo doo? This is good to know but… since we’re on the subject, allow me to briefly interject…

    Beer: Full of vitamin P and good for lubricating the disposal shute as well.

    Coffee: A day without joe is like a BM without the M.

    Note for those in the uniformed services of their nation: Beware the peanut butter and powdered coffee in the rations packs! Each by themselves will render your regularity into a distant memory… though when used together will assure normalcy of function in any battlefield condition.

    1. Not the D but the P
      Doo doo is not such a good source of phosphorous. According to the article, there’s a good reason why the other human waste is called “pee” 😉
