Say Anything

Olbermann: New GOP strategy is ’say anything’

Same as the old strategy.


Tennessee Lt.-Gov.: ‘I don’t know’ if Obama is US citizen

And, I do not know if Tennessee's Lt-Gov. fucks goats. It is unclear if the Lt-Gov is or is not a goat fucker.


Obama Continues Policy Outreach to Republicans -

And I keep banging my head against the door jam to see if it will ever stop hurting.


If you read this blog you know I'm a fan of Survivor.

Jennifer came in forth during the Palau edition.

There, but by the grace of ,go I:

INSIDE STORY: Jennifer Lyon's Cancer Battle - Jennifer Lyon :
"It all began in the summer of 2004, when she 'felt something in my right breast that didn't feel normal,' Lyon told PEOPLE in October 2005. 'I thought it was probably scar tissue related to my breast implants. It was right along the ridge of the implant, so I let it go, and I let it go for a long time.'

Asked why she delayed seeing a doctor, Lyon said, 'I didn't have insurance, which is a big part of it. And it really wasn't changing much. But a year later, I felt another lump, and then I felt something under my armpit.'"

Interesting analogy

Daily Kos: Pander Fail: Obama's New Coke:
"What had gone wrong is that Coca-Cola had abandoned their core market strengths: Coca-Cola was associated with tradition, family, stability. People drank Coke not only for its taste, but for emotional reasons. They had a core emotional attachment to the brand, as one would for a loving parent. When Coca-Cola changed to be more like Pepsi, it abandoned the core elements that made consumers trust and love the brand.

The only difference between Coca-Cola and the Democratic Party is that Coke only needed one opportunity to wise up and learn its lesson, while the Democratic Party continues to roll out its own New Coke every decade or so."

Brush up on your Chinese, y'all.

The most important news and commentary to read right now. - The Slatest - Slate Magazine:
"China is so far ahead in the race to create technology related to renewable energy, that 'the West may someday trade its dependence on oil from the Mideast for a reliance on solar panels, wind turbines and other gear manufactured in China,' notes the New York Times. The United States, along with other countries, is trying to catch up, but it's an uphill battle. While renewable energy continues to be more expensive, China charges a fee to all users to help spread out the cost, an example of how the government takes a deep interest in energy policy. And it's not just about government regulations. In fact, part of the reason why China has been able to become a world leader in building this new technology is that its domestic market is growing. Demand for electricity in China is skyrocketing, so power companies have to constantly buy new equipment, making it easier to develop large-scale production lines."


Damn cool stuff.

And to answer the first question in the blurb.... 'She' did.

"Was the Universe Created By A Big Bang?" -Several of the World's Leading Cosmologists Say "No":
"'What banged?' Sean Carroll, CalTech -Moore Center for Theoretical Cosmology & Physics

Several of the worlds leading astrophysicists believe there was no Big Bang that brought the universe and time into existence. Before the Big Bang, the standard theory assumes, there was no space, just nothing. Einstein merged the universe into a single entity: not space, not time, but spacetime.

Proponents of branes propose that we are trapped in a thin membrane of space-time embedded in a much larger cosmos from which neither light nor energy -except gravity- can escape or enter and that that 'dark matter' is just the rest of the universe that we can't see because light can't escape from or enter into our membrane from the great bulk of the universe. And our membrane may be only one of many, all of which may warp, connect, and collide with one another in as many as 10 dimensions -a new frontier physicists call the 'brane world.' Stephen Hawking, among others, envisions brane worlds perculating up out of the void, giving rise to whole new universes."

Shitty weed.

743 pounds of marijuana found in septic tank truck, Arizona police say -
"CNN) -- In a messy drug bust this week, investigators uncovered more than 700 pounds of marijuana stuffed in a septic tank truck full of human waste, Arizona police said Friday.

And the search of the truck was as awful as it sounds.

'Yeah, that really does suck,' Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves told CNN. 'It's a long way to go to make a bust.'"

Pfft. So 2001. We TOTALLY had a website where you could send anon emails to someone in the office who had an annoying habit.
