I'm reminded of something

And Oliver has run himself over.

I can't be the only one who was reminded of that when reading this story.

For what it's worth

Today, March 31 is . . . . Bunsen Burner Day and National Clams On The Half Shell Day.

Okay, I'll admit: it isn't worth much.

The beauty of blogs

Some people tell me that they don't read blogs, believing them to be a waste of time. My point is that if you're not reading blogs, you're missing out on some truly exceptional writing. Like here, for instance.

Despite this blog's evidence to the contrary, I'm actually quite skilled at composing a well-crafted dissertation on a particular subject, when I put some my mind to it. However, I simply do not have the ability to convey tenor, tone, or emotions like Helen does. When I read her blog, I feel like I'm there with her.

Not convinced? I suggest that you read this post, this one and this one before you decide.

One of these things is not like the other...

See if you can spot the not too slight difference in the reporting contained in these two articles, which I found via KJL at the Corner. First report:


German scientists said on Friday they had isolated sperm-producing stem cells that have similar properties to embryonic stem cells from adult mice.

If the same type of cells in humans show similar qualities the researchers from the Georg-August-University of Goettingen believe they could be used in stem cell research which would remove the ethical dilemma associated with stem cells derived from human embryos.

"These isolated spermatogonial stem cells respond to culture conditions and acquire embryonic stem cell properties," Gerd Hasenfuss and his colleagues said in report published online by the journal Nature.

Second report, title only:


Embryonic Stem Cell Success

I was trying to come up with something snarky, but my brain just imploded. Repair crews are adding back the logic and truthfullness that got sucked out of them by the Waskington Post.

Amazing juggler

I know that when many of you hear the words "juggler" or "juggling", your eyes glaze over from the boredom you're anticipating. Well, check out this video. You might be impressed.

Update: Or maybe not. Via a commenter, here's a pretty good smackdown of Bliss's performance, complete with video of someone doing the exact same routine with five balls.

Valid points, but I still enjoy the original, notwithstanding how much more difficult the diss video is.

Is that all?

Via Bane comes the quiz that gave me the following result:

I am 51% Asshole/Bitch.
Sort of Assholy or Bitchy!
I am abrasive, some people really hate me, but there may be a group of other tight knit assholes and bitches that I can hang out with and get me. Everybody else? Fuck ‘em.

51%? I must not be trying hard enough. Trust me: I can be an enormous asshole.

Intemperate thoughts

So I hear that It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp these days. You know what else is, apparently, even harder? Writing a second effing lyric for your song.
