#3109: Bad Boys--wait, not in the title.


The resistor one: "Bad Boys Rape Our Young Girls But Violet Gives Willingly." ...which is why the traditional mnemonic isn't one he cares for. Heh. (Make it "ravish" and it's less icky, though.)

...then all you need to do is remember which G is green and which is grey, and which B is brown, black, and blue.

(Black Brown Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Purple Grey White, BTW. Similar colors are grouped together so grey isn't between green and purple. Likewise blue isn't next to black or brown. And black and white are on the ends, and the colors correspond with 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.)

Considering that drug interdiction is not TSA's job, this isn't really all that big a deal to me.

As stated previously, I believe the "war on drugs" has worked about as well as the "war on booze" worked during Prohibition. We're wasting a lot of time, money, and manpower on something that can't be fixed through brute force.

What we need to do is to make drug use socially unacceptable again, and the only way to do that is to let druggies ruin their lives and provide horrible examples for all.

So: according to various reports, Kim Jong-il has died.

Wait, no, that's that guy from Black Eyed Peas.

There we are.'s not Fungus policy to celebrate anyone's death--not even dictators who starve millions of their own people so they can live in luxury--but it is Fungus policy to crack jokes about it when it happens.

Now we just need to get rid of Fidel Castro (Wikipedia does not report a death date, so I assume he's still around) and the old guard of the communist movement of the 20th Century will be dead.

...leaving only the new guard, which at least has less revolutionary fervor and more greed and self-interest, making them slightly more vulnerable to reason than their forebears.

Barack Hussein Obamanomics in action!

Hey, the guy broke his leg trying to steal copper wire, but at least he's got free health care! two years.

Michigan legalizes fireworks.

Mark Steyn: "Boy, I can't wait to see what those courageous atheists come up with for Ramadan. Or does that set their hearts a-flutter quite as much?"

I didn't want to read Steyn's bit about Gingrich but the Anchoress reports that he made a really good Wodehouse reference in it.

Ah, Bertie Wooster; we would not have House if it were not for ye.

Michael Flynn has some interesting stuff here I'll have to read later. Problem is, it's 1 PM and I've got errands to run.

And it's warm enough outside that I could actually run them on the motorcycle, IF I get my ass in gear NOW.

So the rest of today's post will come later on.

  • #7872: Yeah, well, welcome to the party, guys.

    Everyone is surprised that ACLU is a bunch of communists. I could have told you that forty years ago. When I was in junior high school I was…

  • #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…
