Believe in the Impossible? Impossible!

I gawk at people I hear talking now and again, many of them are conspiracy theorists. Theorist is a bit of a fancy name for such folk; a simpler name would be nuts for members of this group of believers. Just what things are we asked to believe these days that are so laughable? Let's take a look at... Sign in to see full entry.

The Key to Being Thankful

The key to being thankful is contentedness. Contentedness need not be permanent, but being content with what we have makes us thankful for the moment. When one is thankful, one need not strive for greater things. One need not feel envy of others, and one need not struggle to better one's station in... Sign in to see full entry.

Drunk's Lament

Starkle, starkle little twink, who the hell you are I think. I'm not under what you call the alcofluence of incohol. I'm just a little slort of sheep. I'm not drunk like tinkle peep.

Snow? Here? Now?

There were actual flurries as I drove to work here in Southeastern Virginia. This is aberrant and totally unwanted. If any of it actually sticks to the ground, much less the roads, panic will set in. Sign in to see full entry.

Cruising the Caribbean

We just returned from a wonderful cruise to the Caribbean, 7 glorious days of luxury and rest and relaxation, and I recommend it to all. Our stateroom was small but comfortable, with a nice balcony overlooking the starboard side of the ship. We never had that when I was in the Navy. There were many... Sign in to see full entry.

Remind Me Why We Celebrate This Day . . .

A foolish holiday for us, Americans, indeed. The man, Columbus, had no idea where he was, thought he was in India when he arrived near, not on, our continent. Then he set the wheels in motion that would lead to the criminal abuse of the natives in North American for the next 500+ years. Just what is... Sign in to see full entry.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. - Richard Feynman Sign in to see full entry.
