Commenter Guidelines

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

And have a really nice day.

screw you +Caleb Diffell, Bush is the shit and all your so called facts are just propaganda generated by THE MAN. hey want to keep people misinformed because a confused and divided population is easier to control.

Talking shit about any president is just bad form (well except Obama cause he's a muslim after all) . You are a disgrace to America!!! You probably don't even own a gun!!!

Need a book?

Looking around for something to read, I stumbled upon the Ned Kelly Awards. Think of them as the Australian Edgars or Silver Daggers. 

When in doubt these kinds of awards are often a good pointer to new authors. I hope they are as rich a source as the W. H. Smith Thumping Good Read Awards. ;-)

If you know of anything similar that I've missed out on, please comment and let me know. I've been through the Pulitzers, Hugos, and Nebulas so far. English only I'm afraid as that's my mother tongue.

On the polyglot front I can help you if you need to ask a French person how to get to the library or what's for lunch. [ALM dialogue humor]

Great moments in History: 1973: Urethane Skateboard Wheels

<Engineer Frank Nasworthy’s central insight: Make skateboards slower. The teenager replaced his regular hard clay wheels with prototype urethane wheels after discovering the synthesized rubber at a family friend’s company. The new wheels did, indeed, slow him down. They also enabled carving, powerslides, and tricks that demand adhesion to the ground.>

Poe Boy

<Edgar Allan Poe claimed to remember very little of his life before the death of his parents. But the stories and impressions later gleaned from friends and family members colored his imagination. Fellow actors in his parents’ theatrical troupe, Mr. and Mrs. Usher, lent their names to one of Poe’s most famous stories. >

Quote of the Day:

When informed by a fan that he had no right to opine on baseball, Falls replied, “My office lets me write obits and I’ve never died.”

It's not the overlords, it's the minions.

<Suppose you manage low skilled and low productivity workers. Suppose they aren't very conscientious. What is your day going to be like? Kinda like someone running around plugging new holes that spout in dikes. Will you like your job? For most people the answer is going to be "No!". So automate the jobs and stop dealing with people who are a hassle to deal with.>

Thinking About Robots And ZMP Workers. Some robots do not cause a productivity explosion because they replace low productivity workers and the quality of the task done does not improve much after the initial introduction of robots. The automated equipment that turns a worker into a zero marginal ...

YO LO!

<Bets were being made, being covered. The kickers were producing the hard stuff, the old stuff, libertyheaded dollars and Roosevelt dimes from the stampand-coin stores, while more cautious bettors slapped down antique paper dollars laminated in clear plastic. Through the haze came a trio of red planes, flying in formation. Fokker D Vhs. The room fell silent. The Fokkers banked majestically under the solar orb of a two-hundred-watt bulb. >

<Unperson. Thoughtcrime. De-tenure. The first two words of this list are from the novelist George Orwell's 1984; the last is from the University of Tennessee's "advocacy" page, reporting on the most recent Board of Trustees meeting. Though Chancellor Jimmy Cheek reported to the Faculty Senate Monday afternoon that the term was a "typo" and the website issued a correction that made it disappear from the record faster than an Orwellian "unperson," it lingers in the air, as does the content of its context, which was item 6 in a list of cost-saving or revenue-generating procedures proposed by President Joe Di Pietro.>

Free Business Idea of the Day: BOMFOG shortener plug-in

A browser plug-in that detects and shortens BOMFOG saving valuable reading time.

Example:

(Before) Chief executive Ian Ayre said: “With a hugely supportive ownership, we have brought financial stability back to this football club and we now have the right structure, platform and ambition to continue growing on and off the pitch.”

(After) Ian Ayre BOMFOG (Content-free boasting and ass-kissing).


BOMFOG
An acronym for "Brotherhood Of Man, Fatherhood Of God". Nelson Rockefeller spoke so much of this theme in his campaign speeches, reporters started referring to it as his BOMFOG speech. Think content-free hot air, endlessly repeated.

Let us now praise famous men - Big Bob Gibson

Every so often one must transcend the surly bonds of dualism (North Carolina vs South Carolina BBQ sauce) and try something different. Today was such a day. White Barbecue Sauce courtesy of Northern Alabama.

The recipe used:  http://barbecuebible.com/recipe/white-barbecue-sauce/

Angels Sang

The original: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/big-bobs-gibsons-white-sauce-recipe.html

Slow-cooked ribs.

Say no more.

Dead blog in the middle of the road

<But I hate Facebook and have no desire to spend any time there, so tailoring the Bleat or lileks.com for Zuckerberg’s dull blue borg cube would be like spending a lot of time and money getting fitted for clothes I don’t like so I can blend in amongst people I don’t know in a country I don’t like.>

But I'm sure they're kind to their dogs.

Okay okay I loaded all the music back on the computer, BUT I am going to go through it and take out the stuff I don't want. And put back a few tunes. “Crazy Little Mama” is going back, just like it was before. In the early Oughts before we had phones that connected to a hole in the dash ...
