Hang onto your wiimote. This is why there's a wrist strap. (There is one, isn't there?)

I wonder if a CRT could have survived that?

Einstein referred to quantum entanglement as "spooky action at a distance". But it works, and in fact you can do some weird stuff when you start experimenting with quantum esoterica. (One experiment placed an atom into a superposition of two states...and then physically seperated the states by a non-trivial distance. So the atom was essentially in two places at once; and if one could decide how to collapse the probability waveform, the atom could have been teleported from one point to another.)

We're still a pretty long way from having truly useful quantum computers--that is, machines which can be used by the average Joe for, well, whatever--but the research is ongoing because it would just be so damn useful.

"Terror is the new communism." College education leaves too many people in a state of breathtaking ignorance.

The Gore Effect lives! Gore's testimony before Congress, on the dangers of global warming, had to be postposed due to a snowstorm.

God is trying to tell you something, Al. LISTEN ALREADY.

Obama begins to reverse Bush eco-policies, which is not going to help the economy. Oh well.

Terrorists and their sympathizers don't care who is President of the USA.

No additional comment needed.

Obama's little blue book?

Come hell or high water the Democrats are going to destroy Karl Rove.

Way to go, guys; make the US into a third-world country. Forget all that "peaceful transfer of power" stuff. You've got the White House and both houses of Congress; now you can make Bush pay for having the gall to win. Twice.

Obama wants to ban "space weapons". Practical result: US won't have space weapons. China probably will. So when the shit hits the fan we'll lose all our satellites. Saying, "Well, I guess the bad guys cheated..." will be cold comfort.

It's not racism when blacks exclude whites based on their skin color. Don't you guys know anything? Blacks can't be racist because they're oppressed!

(The fact that we now have a black president notwithstanding.)

Finally, a news article with correct information about nuclear power.

And while we're on the subject, do we really want to be taking a back seat to the French? On anything? The French are doing nuclear power correctly while the US is mired firmly in the 1930s. WTF.

If this ever happens to you, turn off the light before reaching for the pen.

...okay, maybe it wasn't quite a "billion".

    Seeing the title of Friday night's ST:TOS ep ("The Changeling") reminded me of one of my pet peeves. In DS9, Odo is the station security chief. He's…

    Last night I watched ST:TOS, ST:TNG, and ST:DS9 on H&I. I did it again tonight. DS9 in particular--they've gotten to the big war, to the time when…

    ...Mami must be destroyed. She's just plain evil. That's all there is to it. I don't think I have ever hated a character quite as much as I hate…
