    Thanks Rats.
    (And speaking of idiots, a spelling error just jumped out at me, so I've fixed it here and on PhaWRONGula. *slaps forehead*)

  • X-Mice   16 years 10 weeks ago

    I think this might be your best one yet! Very nicely done. (Reminds me a little of your Internet law, as well, the one about the Internet providing ever bigger idiots!)

    Hey- I love the comment about Bush that says "I don't think" ! Very funny.

  • An Endangered Species   16 years 11 weeks ago

    Pahaha. I just about died laughing when I saw the picture of the octopus in the evergreen. What a riot.

  • An Endangered Species   16 years 11 weeks ago

    I did my part, may the tree octopus be saved. (And the pumpkins too!)

  • An Endangered Species   16 years 11 weeks ago

    Links are good. They raise awareness.

  • An Endangered Species   16 years 11 weeks ago

    It is time to do something for the tree octopus.
    I might even go so far as to put a link to this page!

    Nice Site....I guess....*laughs* DIAF this place sucks..

    Oh no, jk. Hot dogs really do cause leukemia but the hot dog manufacturing industry lobby has been paying the FDA to cover it up!

    And the hot dog study wasn't new. The link between hot dogs and death was documented by the Knights Templar in the 13th century. The Knights (early in the 14th century) sent hot dogs to Philip IV the Fair, resulting in the mysterious and untimely demise of his three sons, Louis, Philippe and Charles.

    There's a researcher who does statistical analyses of studies. My favorite was the finding that kids eating a certain number of hot dogs had a statistically significant greater risk of developing leukemia. The number wasn't over 6 or anything but a range of like 12 to 18 hot dogs a month, with the risk going away if you ate more. It was a hoot. Just a random corellation with no causal link.

    Tonight I got around to doing what I should have done a week ago: clipping the claws of the cat.

  • Blind Reading the Sign   16 years 13 weeks ago

    ace, -5!
    Any chance of eye surgery?

    I do spend most of my time glasses-less (in front of a computer). I only use the glasses for driving, outdoor activities, movies, meetings in large rooms, etc.

    I feel fortunate to have reasonable sight. Even more so since I'm shortsighted and expect my sight will lengthen slightly with age.

  • Blind Reading the Sign   16 years 13 weeks ago

    He doesnt really need glasses being such a low pescription, except maybe for driving. My brothers eyes are worse, being -1 and -1.25 with -.5 astigmastim and he never wears glasses except to drive. I wish my eyes were as good as yours, I see 20/30 WITH glasses! -5 myopia :(

    A real-life Pinky? Ow.

  • Thigh Ornament   16 years 14 weeks ago

    I can relate. Unfortunately. Worst was at a vet's when a large dog came in and cat tried to escape by going through my rib cage and then my neck. I don't scar easily.

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    Just make sure you avoid words like "bleak", "dirge", and "sanguine", and you should be all right.

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    A lot of my verses have their roots in my own feelings. I'll start with something that has affected me personally, stew over it and recognize where it has happened in others or has been portrayed in stories, then write about it in first person. What results is still a personal expression, albeit in a distorted, exaggerated form that doesn't reflect reality.

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    Well, that's good to hear, any road. Although, I didn't interpret that poem as being about your actual feelings. I can't imagine you considering yourself unloved/abandoned. I figured it was just a poem about the human condition in general.

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    I don't mind too much. I won't be embarrassed if it shows up in a Google cache, or even burned into someone's memory. In fact, I note it's still available in the public history of the RSS aggregator I use--bloglines.com. I may even republish that entry one day. It just looked sad to have posted so intermittently on my journal, then to throw up an inwardly focused verse. The impression it would have given would have been a gross distortion of how I've been feeling.

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    Oh, don't you just hate when you yank a post, and then some berk comments on its removal, so you know for SURE they saw the damn thing?

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    I came back to it after a couple of days and it sounded too grumpy and self-absorbed, so I pulled it.

    I was planning to replace it with something more whimsical, but everything I've started lately gets to be half-whimsied, and then refuses to cooperate. It's been that way for attempts at PhaWRONGula entries too. Maybe I'm losing access to Neverland. (Nah. I'll just leave it a few days and I'll be back in.)

  • Dumberest-est   16 years 14 weeks ago

    Hey, what happened to the poem that was here yesterday? I came back to read it again, and, well, I can only conclude that the Flying Spaghetti Monster ate it. Spaghetti giveth, and spaghetti taketh away, eh?

    And, yes, GWB's not the best banana in the bunch.

  • The Return of the Curse   16 years 16 weeks ago

    When confronted by the fact that mainstream science accepts the multiple streams of corroborative evidence for an old earth, the young-earth creationists (at least the very public ones) claim that there is either a huge delusion or a huge conspiracy that prevents them receiving wide recognition for their groundbreaking works. In some, this belief that the overwhelming majority view must be wrong results in them concluding that Satan is deceiving scientists. Others seem to have convinced themselves that they are smarter than conventional scientists (paranoia: delusions of grandeur) and can see the obvious evidence that others miss. Some (fortunately few) even propose an active conspiracy between atheistic scientists (paranoia: delusions of persecution) to propagate a set of anti-theistic lies.

    If you're interested in the subject, http://www.talkorigins.org is a good place to start. They have links to claims + refutations + counter-refutations etc if you want to follow arguments from both sides.

  • The Return of the Curse   16 years 16 weeks ago

    Thanks. By the way, it seems to me that the curse is slightly contradictory: "Lifetime's disdain for your own education," implies that that education should negate creationism. But "paranoid claims...that science suppresses your piece de resistance" sounds like the claim that science negates creationism is paranoid. Care to elucidate?

  • The Return of the Curse   16 years 16 weeks ago

    Thank you, Judah.
    The mere fact that you can express your disagreement without acrimony tells me you're not the type of creationist that would ever deserve this curse.
