#3258: So now it's Sunday again, and I didn't sleep last night.

Yeah, and guess who's fault it is? *sigh*

So I get home from church to this e-mail:

All of my language training is in two languages, neither of which is even close to fluency: German and Japanese. Nowhere on my resume does it even hint that I am fluent in any language other than English, because I am not.

So WTF is this crap?

"Identify the song stuck in your head." I'm going to try this, and I'll let you know how (or if) it works.

Fortunately I can carry a tune, so that ought to help--at least a little bit.

A good way to "reboot" Star Trek for "modern" TV. First off, none of this stuff is a "reboot"; it's merely a continuation of the universe where ST:TNG and DS9 left off.

Second, the only differences between "modern" and "classic" TV are:
Aspect ratio (16:9 instead of 4:3)
High definition
More series are serial rather than episodic
End of list.

Same stories, same formulae, same lame jokes, over and over, ad nauseum. Which is why I stopped watching it.

Still, I would probably watch the shows this guy discusses, because they sound interesting.

As long as they were on a broadcast channel I can receive.

Vox Day discusses an article on how 500 of the biggest participants in the world's bond market--representing an aggregate of trillions of dollars--are not actually all that optimistic about Greece and its impending default. (BTW, that's predicted to happen in twelve days.)

We're told that the big bond swap (which required private investors to accept 46.5% of face value, or get nothing) is going to fix the problem, but Greece is essentially borrowing money to solve a debt crisis.

In layman's terms we say, "robbing Peter to pay Paul" when an individual borrows money to pay off debts. It does not work any better at the governmental level.

Well, that's because the bus driver didn't realize he was up against an IMPORTANT DEMOCRAT! If that bus driver had only realized that Alan Grayson is IMPORTANT--and therefore legally entitled to run red lights--he would have yielded the right-of-way and the accident would not have happened!

That's right: that accident was the bus driver's fault. Who is he, anyway? Probably some asshole who voted for McCain in 2008. Get out of (former) Congressman Grayson's way, you rethuglikkkan nazi dickhead!

Jane Fonda is proof that you don't have to be smart to be rich.

Temps are projected to hit the lower 70s this week. I hope it's not too windy to ride the motorcycle!

    The left HATES the term. They really, really hate it a lot. So, for example, the goofball sitting on the Capitol steps some 400 yards behind a…

    Sunday, I changed the oil in Mrs. Fungus' car, assembled a new cat tree, and--spur of the moment--decided to bake Irish Soda Bread. Then washed the…
