#3112: Actual Earth-size planet spotted by Kepler

One's a bit bigger than Earth and one's a bit smaller. But of course these planets orbit too close to their primary even to have atmospheres much less water.

The article doesn't say which star, though.

Reindeer meat for the low-low price of $80 per pound, and it's sold out thanks to the efforts of econazis.

The econazis had intended to get people to complain to the store selling it--not about the price, but about the fact that they were selling meat. The publicity led to the store selling every last can of the stuff.

...have to wonder how many of the sales were driven by spite: "I'm sick of those animal rights idiots telling me what I can and can't eat! I'll shell out the £15 for a tin!"

Either way, it's f-in' hilarious when econazi crap backfires like this.

You don't make preparations like this if you have confidence that everything will be fine. Headline: "Evacuation plan for Brits in Spain amid warning euro collapse could leave them stranded".

Let's just get on with the DOOM!, shall we?

China ain't looking too hot these days.

I've got news for all you Obama supporters out there: Obama's not nearly as smart as everyone says he is. VDH FTW:
...I am searching for a shred of evidence to substantiate this image of singular intellectual power and known erudition. For now, I don’t see any difference between Bush’s Yale/Harvard MBA record and Obama’s Columbia/Harvard Law record — except Bush, in self-deprecation, laughed at his quite public C+/B- accomplishments that he implied were in line with his occasional gaffes, while Obama has quarantined his transcripts and relied on the media to assert that his own versions of “nucular” moments were not moments of embarrassment at all.
And "In short, the myth of Obama’s brilliance was based on his teleprompted eloquence, the sort of fable that says we should listen to a clueless Sean Penn or Matt Damon on politics because they can sometimes act well."

Sean Penn shows that he has all the class of a typical commutard.

Sean Penn, realizing he's talking to Maria Conchita Alonso, says to her, "I don't want to talk to you. You speak badly about me. You insult me on TV."

What a whiner. "Boo hoo hoo, someone said something bad about me, boo hoo hoo!" I can't wait until I'm an ultra-famous superrich entertainer so I can get all butthurt when someone tells the truth about me in public.

(When will that be, exactly? Hell, I don't know. It's on the list.)

I need to clean, and do laundry, and guess what?
