Presented without context

"Perhaps after 34 years it's time for us to confess we invented cello scrotum," she wrote with her husband John, who had signed the original letter, which was published in the BMJ Wednesday.
Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and leave it up to you to figure that one out.

The Redistricting Game

Enjoy all the fun of redistricting and gerrymandering from your computer!

Note: I haven't been able to get past level one.  The courts always dismiss my redistricting maps.

A View from My Window, non-Trig Truther edition

Just so you know, I've been trapped in my apartment since Monday night.

Youtube Pope

The Catholic Church has launched their youtube channel, it is currently available in English, Italian, German and Spanish.  For now it seems to just be a place where clips from CTV (the Vatican's television station) are added, but I'm hoping with time they get a little more sophisticated in using youtube and this crazy modern intarwebs thing.  The Church tends to operate at a very leisurely pace, even by European standards, forget American standards, so I'm kind of surprised to see them move in this direction at this pace. 

Looks like they don't have comments, which is just as well, given the average IQ of the youtube commenter.

Not-so-random question: Upstate NY Edition

Are there any Morons in Upstate NY?  Like, say, in New York's 20th District around Saratoga Springs/Albany? 

I'm trying to decide if I want to do something completely insane by moving up there to help Jim Tedisco's campaign in the special election to replace now-Sen. Gillibrand.

Alcohol helps perpetuate the illusion of bedroom proficiency

I never realized they actually have a name for it - brewer's droop.

Australian researchers have made the surprise discovery that consuming alcohol actually improves men's performance in the bedroom.
...
In a study of 1580 Australian men, drinkers reported up to 30 per cent fewer problems than teetotallers.

Emphasis mine. I'm going to guess that at least a few of the readers here have experienced the guy who doesn't realize that he tried stuffing the marshmallow into the piggybank and then passed out cold on top of you, limp as a month-old carrot. And then tries to act in the morning like he gave you the night of your life and you should be paying him.  But I'm not bitter, really.

Dead or alive, you're coming with me

There's no way this could go wrong...for instance, at the top of an escalator.

Japanese researchers in Tokyo on Wednesday unveiled a robotic mall cop, a two-foot-high security guard on wheels that can track down bad guys running amok on commercial property and disable them with a 'Spider-Man' like web.
Oh, wait, they only have single-story malls in Japan, don't they?

Who knew that the Mumbai slums had an advocacy group?

Slumdog Millionaire was excellent.  I'm glad to see that it was nominated for a ton of Oscars today.  It's one of those rare occasions where I want a movie to win because it's good, not just because all the other nominees are so bad. 

But the rags-to-riches tale is unacceptable to some because, wait for it, the name "slumdog" is insulting:

Several dozen Mumbai slum residents protested the award-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire" on Thursday, calling the film's title insulting.

[...]

"I am poor, but don't call me slumdog," said Rekha Dhamji, 18, one of about two dozen slum residents who protested outside the home of one of the movie's actors, Anil Kapoor.

"I don't want to be referred to as a dog," she said.

Other protesters held up banners reading "Poverty For Sale," and "I am not a dog." One of them carried a puppy.

Yawn.  

Perhaps if anyone in India had seen the film (it's not released there until tomorrow), they would know that the only people who call the main character a slumdog aren't exactly "nice" characters.  Or maybe they'd appreciate that one of the main themes of the film is the value of people who do grow up in the slums. 

And seriously..."poverty for sale"?  No one wants to buy poverty, dummy.

Non-Obama inauguration Photos

You may have forgotten, but other Presidents besides Obama had inaugurations, too.  Here are some neat pictures to prove it!

Some non-coronation freakage

Since US Airways refuses to confirm that it's the same airplane, I'm going to have to make a possibly life-saving decision: I'm never ever flying US Airways from LaGuardia to Charlotte, ever ever ever.

Okay, I've Been Effectively Bribed

This is my impression of the Right Wing if we were as immature, hypocritical, viscious and devoid of irony and humor as the left has been for the last 8 years:

OBAMA IS FUCKING HITLER!!!!  HE'S A BLOODTHIRSTY KILLER AND HE SHOULD BE IMPEACHED AND PUT IN PRISON AND WHILE I DON'T SUPPORT THE ASSASSINATION OF OBAMA THERE SHOULD STILL BE A PLAY MADE THAT BASICALLY ENDORSES THAT ACT AND ALL THE CRITICS SHOULD JERK OFF PUBLICLY AT HOW AWESOME IT IS AND EVERY THING OBAMA DOES IS EVIL OR STUPID OR DIABOLICAL BUT STILL FUCKING STUPID EVEN THOUGH IT IS CLEVER AND AMERICA IS EVIL BECAUSE THAT CHIMPY MONKEY IS IN CHARGE AND EVERYONE HATES US AND THEY SHOULD AND I HOPE WE FAIL OVER AND OVER AT EVERYTHING WE ATTEMPT AND WE SHOULD BURN THE FLAG BUT DON'T YOU DARE FUCKING QUESTION MY PATRIOTISM BECAUSE DISSENT BY DEFINITION IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF PATRIOTISM BECAUSE SOMEBODY FAMOUS SAID THAT AND THAT MAKES IT TRUE UNLESS THE FAMOUS PERSON IS A DEMO-RAT IN WHICH CASE IT IS A VILE LIE EVEN IF THEY BELIEVED IT AT THE TIME BECAUSE ONLY THE OTHER TEAM LIES AND IF YOU QUESTION MY PATRIOTISM IT PROVES YOU ARE UNPATRIOTIC LEAVING ASIDE THE UTTER RETARDEDNESS THAT IS MY FLAG-BURNING ASS QUESTIONING YOUR PATRIOTISM WHILE DEMANDING YOU APOLOGIZE FOR EVEN THE SLIGHTEST INSINUATION THAT MAYBE MY CONSTANT ROOTING FOR THE OTHER TEAM AND INABILITY TO SAY ANYTHING NICE ABOUT AMERICA COULD EVEN REPRESENT A TINY SMIDGE OF NON-PATRIOTIC BEHAVIOR YOU FASCIST PIECE OF SHIT WARMONGERING MURDERING BABY-HATER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111*

* - God I hate this shit.  By all accounts we should just constantly attempt to ruin Obama's life but, being mature, we just... can't get upset about the trivial stupid bullshit the left managed to stay permanently enraged about for 8 years.  I think they just have our number on the stupid, childish rage angle and I'm not sure how we counter that advantage.

Beyond that, I do feel a bit better having ranted.

Fuck the Inaugeration

If I hear one more goddamned thing about this inaugeration I'm going to lose my fucking mind.  If it weren't for the recent posts featuring scantily clad hot chicks in thigh-highs I might have already lost it. 

I mean, did you hear?  Its cool to wave the American flag again.  When wasn't it?

I'm so fucking tired of these people acting like their fucking war agaisnt America for the last 8 years didn't happen while they expect us all to just smile and accept Obama's super-fucking-awesomeness.  They'd say "well, Bush sucked and Obama is great, that's why its different."  But it isn't different.  47% of America doesn't like Obama just as much as their 47% didn't like Bush when he was elected.  It is exactly fucking the same. 

Anyway, fuck 'em.  I wrote a REALLY LONG ALL-CAPS INSANE RANT HERE written as if I was just as hysterical and retarded as your average lefty but it got deleted when a sidling coworker surprised me into pushing backspace without focus on the form.

I'll exact my revenge soon.  If there is a lot of demand for my "impression" of the left for the last 8 years as it applies to Obama, I may add it later.

Bruce Campbell + Mummy = Wicked cool

I remember seeing this movie four years ago when it first came out, and I was just reminded of its existence/awesomeness.  Bruce Campbell thinks he's Elvis.  Ossie Davis thinks he's JFK.  Can their powers combined defeat a mummy?  Well, watch Bubba Ho-tep and find out.
