Kid discovers which microorganisms and which conditions cause plastic to biodegrade. And he’s a Canuck. From Discover Magazine blog: “At 37 degrees and optimal bacterial concentration, the microbes had consumed 43 percent of a plastic sample within six weeks.” Continue reading
The Democrats band together in unity to pass a law that a majority does not want, even if it means losing their individual seats and their majority status.
The Republicans under Sen. Mitch McConnell band together to move the vote up so that they can all get home on time for Christmas. VOTE. THE. BUMS. OUT! Jim DeMint for President.
Liberal Girls Are Slutty
From Noel Shepperd at NewsBusters via Sister Toldja “The political advocacy group “Rock the Vote” has a new video out encouraging young people to abstain from having sex with folks opposed to healthcare reform.”
….”The group’s YouTube posting asks: “What would you withhold from someone who opposes health care reform? Cookies, a Christmas gift, sex?”
Ok, that’s the only reason that I can think of…
My poker buddy, who thinks he is a stud and has it made, is wrong. Buddy often brags about his latest conquests. He’s late 30s, and if you believe him, he has had handfuls of women in the past 2-3 years. Most of them much younger than him, few involving any long term relationship. Some of them even married. I have no reason to doubt him.
Lately, for the past 6 months or more, he has found someone close to his own age and they have been dating exclusively. So if you are her, stop reading this. My problem with him is that he has bragged about how wonderful he has it. Lately, when a hot babe would come on a T.V. commercial, for instance, he has made comments to we married gentlemen such such as, ”John hasn’t seen a hot woman like that in 25 years.” I’m sure he really thinks he has it made and is living the life.
But I disagree. First of all, if he married his current woman, he might have kids when he is over 40. I would hate that. I’m too old and I did that when I was younger and stronger. And if he never has kids? I would never have missed mine for any amount of indiscriminate sex or money.
And yes, he brags when he nails some new chick. But he has to worry about catching the latest veneral disease, or worse, and about birth control, and even about whether this newest edition is a psycho. Sure, the sound of being a single guy playing the field sounds great. But I think he is missing out on some of the greatest joys in life. A life-time commitment, a mate who is faithful. Love and acceptance for who you are, with no game playing. Actually, I feel sorry for him. I look at him and see a kid who never grew up. I hope he finally sticks with this gal he is with now, for his sake.
I said long ago that ObamaCare would pass the Senate. Remember Lindsey Graham’s “Health care bill is dead on arrival”? OK, so the liberal Bobsy twins from Maine and the limp-wristed one from South Carolina did not cave. But other “moderates” did, such as Senators “the whore from Louisiana” and “The One Who Can Be Bought” from Nebraska. You can’t trust moderates. You can buy them. But eventually, they will screw you.
A little Rule 5 for a cold Saturday.
It is respectfully recommended that you listen to “Under the boardwalk” by The Drifters as you view today’s selections:
Outside the John Doe hell hole. Official Doe estimate: 12 inches as of 9 a.m. Saturday, with officials estimating anothe 5-8 inches. Yikes! Saturday night Hold ‘em tourney might get cancelled!
Lookin out my back door
A website committed to throwing Cong. Grayson out, called mycongressmanisnuts attempts to raise money to throw this moron out of office. He responds by sending a letter to Atty. Gen. Holder asking her to be prosecuted. Hey, Eric, come git some from me too!
A bold faced liar. No, not just for his debunked “hockey stick” graph. That’s old news. I’m referring to an article that he wrote that was published in The Washington Post. I consider a “must-read” his latest article in the Washington Post. Have a puke bag handy.
But more telling is the response from readers. These are Washington Post sheeple we are talking about. Almost with unanymity they excoriate him for his lies. My teeth were clenching by the time I finished reading the article as he pooh-poohed “ClimateGate” and lied about what various smoking gun emails meant. Then I read the responses and was cheered that no-longer does this nation of sheep sit back and believe the lies of the likes of Al Gore and Michael Mann. And as a palate cleanser, read this Wall Street Journal article about what ClimateGate is really all about, from a guy who was targeted in some of the leaked emails.
I’m still officially a skeptic. I have never believed the bull shit spouted by the global warming alarmists. But I think it is a debate too important to take sides and become an advocate. Continue reading
