In another entry for my LEX LUTHOR DOESN'T EXIST award: Always plan your get-away. Of course, if they ever find the guy he'll probably sue the good samaritan.

This story is just strange. It allegedly occurs in 1 out of every 500,000 live births.

Before reading this story, I suggest taking a couple of aspirin, or smoking one huge "dubie". Quantum physics is redefining the concept of the space/time continuum. Oh, and here is an interesting video about black-holes.

I wonder if John Bobbitt plans to contribute to this museum's collection?

Before cable-tv, TV sets had dials to select a channel (those of you too young to know this, just ask your grandparents), hence the archaic term "Spin the dial and see whats on." Not only have "dials" on TV sets gone the way of the Dodo bird but also on landline telephones. Now the landline itself may be facing extinction. I haven't had a landline since 1999. And, in a vaguely related story, cable connection to the WWW is surpassing DSL. And those with dial-up connections (theres that archaic term again) are becoming a statistical anomaly.

Cool art that will mess with your head
11 ships or 3 ships & 8 arches?
Do you see faces or all houses?
How many horses in this picture?
Should find 7
People or faces?

A picture puzzle
How many people?
See more than one deer?
Look at the middle column
Where does it end?
Do you see four people?
Who is the tallest?
A "face"?
Or the word "liar"?
A bunch of black splotches
or the word "lift"?
Allegedly, girls spot the word "lift" easily while men have difficulty.
How many faces do you see?
Supposed to be 11
Focus on the dot in the centerand move your head backwards and forwards.

"You are not here merely to make a living.

You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement.

You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand."
Woodrow Wilson

Yesterday the House passed the 5 year 2008 Farm Bill by a veto proof margin. The Senate is expected to do the same today. Dubya has flatly stated that he will veto it. But, with the overwhelming support on both sides of the aisle in both Houses of Congress, why is he going to make this futile effort? He has become the proverbial petulent child who pouts because he is losing the game.

In past tragedies in China, their government put up a firewall to restrict the flow of information. This has not been the case for the recent earthquake. Probably because of their commitment to a successful Olympic Games in August, they have become very liberal in allowing press coverage about everything in their country. Like the western world, China has ceased being a country and is turning into a multifaceted corporation. Whether this new outlook will continue after the Games is unknown. They are accepting global aid in their rescue recover efforts and are being asked to urge Burma/Myanmar to do the same. I think part of the problem with the later is that the country is overcrowded and the ruling junta might just be using this as a means of "natural" population reduction/control. That way the world community would see them as either completely inefficient or uncaring but could not bring claims of deliberate genocide.

The US Dept. of the Interior has added the polar bear to its "Endangered Species" list. A spokesperson for the 2 remaining polar bears not in captivity expressed appreciation from his home in the Bahamas.

I'll be back later with more rants and raves. As always, thanks for coming by. The time you spend here is appreciated very much. Have a great day!
