#1607: What a shame it wasn't Obama who went missing.

John Kerry really takes the cake, but in the process he once again demonstrates how frightened Democrats are of Sarah Palin: they are scared green to the point of needing to change their underwear.

They would love for some kind of scandal to take out Sarah Palin, wouldn't they? If she just disappeared, that would make them happy.

WTF is this? We had to get rid of CFCs because they supposedly damaged the ozone layer (which, by the way, is BS) and now we can't use HFCs because they cause global warming?

Ann Coulter on Obama's tepid reactions to the voter riots in Iran.

Just in case you need any more proof that the mullahs are evil, Iranian police murder a young man and then attempt to charge his parents $3,000 for the bullet they used to kill him.

Ethiopia has the Ark of the Covenant. So they say. It's supposed to be made of acacia wood, as I recall; can we get a sample for carbon dating? God knows the last thing you want to do is open it!

I never "got" Transformers, not even a little bit. That series came out when I was in high school, anyway, so when the movie hit the screens (whenever the hell it was) I didn't care.

So now there's a sequel, and apparently it's terrible. The review I just linked to is a masterpiece of irony.

Fortunately I still have no interest in seeing either the first movie or its sequel, so I don't care how bad the movie is.

I don't know--giant robots just never appealed to me, despite the fact that I'm a big anime fan. The one exception to this rule was Gundam W.

More beastly hot weather today. *sigh*

Thanks to an unusually cool and wet spring the corn will not be "knee-high by the 4th of July" for the first time in many years. I'm not sure what this will do to the price of food, but it can't be good.

Hmm: vanishingly low sunspot count for two years, higher commodity prices--we've seen this before, haven't we?

  • #7871: What's broken NOW??

    Had to go to far off-site (soon to be main site) today, so I was able to see my new office. They've already got a nameplate outside it! How long has…

  • #7870: Heavy rain

    Probably the last thunderstorm of the year, hard rain. Weather site says "2 to 3 inches of rain"--for the day, I think--and I'm not inclined to doubt…

  • #7869: Here comes the rain (again)

    Up a bit after sunrise, did the pre-blog surf and found nothing I really wanted to comment about; but in the meantime the light coming in from…
