Now I lay me down to sleep
With fork and saucer at my feet,
If I should die before I wake
Bury me with the chocolate cake.

Your gracious humility comes as a grand and welcome surprise, sir. I accept your apologies whole-heartedly and return them in kind, regretting my past incivilities toward your august person.

Amos, your acceptance of my apologies is humbly accepted. I shall continue to try to enhance my self-abasement so that I can someday be no longer worthy of self-abasing behavior.

A little known fact:

On Friday, August 30, 1889, Jeff's train made a scheduled stop at the Pocatello depot. During the wait, a man in railroad switchman clothes came up to the window of the railroad car where Jeff sat and fired at him five times, point blank. All but one bullet missed injuring him. It came so close that it mutilated half Jeff's mustache as it whizzed by. Jeff drew pistol and returned three shots, all striking their targets, two in one fleeing assailant and one in another. Next, railroad personnel "tried to mob" him, as Jeff put it, but "we stood them off," and Jeff and his party, with the aid of "a few good citizens," left Pocatello on a hasty, twenty-five-mile horseback ride north to Blackfoot (at that time the county seat).

With him was famed Earp gunman, "Texas Jack" Vermillion. Also with Soapy were Soap Gang members "Fatty Gray, " G. E. "Auctioneer" Roberts, J. W. Allen, and Soapy's younger, hot headed brother, Bascomb.

It's not the OK Corral, but it will do. Smith was acquitted on September 1,1889 and went on to be shot to death on a wharf in Skagway in 1898.

Excuse me, that previous post was about Randolf Jefferson "Soapy" Smith. I should have made that clearer.

That bullshit detector is defective. It does a pretty good job of detecting surreptitious, insincere, college sophomore trying to sound like he knows what he's talking about in a research paper bullshit, but it doesn't detect true and blatant MOABic bullshit. I have subjected several of my own posts to its analysis and received BS scores of zero or very near zero even though there was not a word of genuine true fact in any of them. As long as you don't use words like "paradigm" or phrases like "complex intermodal relationships" you can pile on bullshit by the bucketful and it won't even notice.

"Soapy's power grew to the point that he admitted to the press that he was a con man and saw nothing wrong with it. In 1896, he told a newspaper reporter, "I consider bunco steering more honorable than the life led by the average politician."

My kinda guy...

Sneak over and dig a small hole in his lawn. Make the hole about a foot deep. In it place sharpened stakes of fire-hardened wood. Camouflage the top. Don't leave fingerprints or footprints and discretely splashing a little gasoline around will help prevent a police dog from following your scent.

Better yet, if you can get to his lawnmower you could use superglue or epoxy in some strategic places -- the gas line is good, as is the carburetor or the control cables. Best of all is using that stuff in the ignition lock of a riding mower...or motorcycle, or....

Leave George alone! He's obviously a practitioner of mowing meditation, a mindfulness discipline founded by Guru Bubba Shindawa. It's like walking meditation but the noise of the lawnmower drowns out distracting sounds and engine vibrations transmitted through the handle cause one's fingers to tingle with connectedness to the universe. Guru Bubba Shindawa spreads his teachings through the numerous lawn care product dealerships he and his brother-in-law Swami Jim-Bob Husqvarna, founder of the chainsaw meditation discipline, own throughout the US and Canada.

Well, yes, Ebbie. Discretion is the better part and all that.

Amos old top, I had a wonderful education in Things Explosive, Stinky, and Incendiary (TESI) beginning in late grade school when my brothers and I discovered a British publication, "The Home Guard Manual," at the public library. From there we went on to bigger and better things, culminating in courses such as "Boobytraps" and "Improvised Explosives" and "Explosives and Demolitions" courtesy of the US military. We also made our own fuel for "model" rockets, way back when. What would you like to know?

Whilst driving home from the gas station with a full 20l gas can in front of the passenger seat of the car (sold my truck), I pondered what it must be like driving on smooth roads under sunny smoggy skies in Calleeforneeah rather than on the frost heaved pothole patched roads of nb.ca. It must be magical.

31C and HUMID here today. It's the fuckin blue moon I tell ya! I'd go outside and look at it later but it's too hot for me. Glad I don't live in Iran... ~163F heat index??? 163!!!

I've never been afraid to take risks, Amos, but I should think the risk would be far greater where you live, since you have a national health care system that barely rivals that of the early medieval period in Europe. It is my understanding that you have fled to Mexico on occasion to avoid the ridiculously high cost of medical care in the USA.

Go fishing, golfing, or sliding dollar bills under naked women's garter belts, and there's a good chance there'll be hell to pay when ya get home. But ride around on a lawn tractor for an hour and she can't say a word about it 'cause you wuz working. Even if you just mowed the grass yesterday and all you're really doing is driving around aimlessly and drinking beer, it's still work.

I ain't never mowed a lawn yet, 'cause I been livin' in the city since movin' to the USA, see? Seems like a big waste of time to me to mow lawns. I would just get a few goats to keep the lawn trimmed if I had one. After I get elected, I might get a herd of goats put out regular on the White House lawn and save the taxpayers some money. I will also be puttin' a large tree house on the property, for use in warm weather. And then there's the King Kong monument to be erected in New York as a memorial to the greatest ape that ever lived. Anyways, first things first...time to nip over to Alfie's and hoist a couple with the boys. Saturday night's nearly over!

Hey, Chumpo! Here's an abstract:

Folia Primatol (Basel). 1977;28(4):259-89.
Infant killing and cannibalism in free-living chimpanzees.

Goodall J.

Male chimpanzees at the Gombe National Park were twice seen to attack 'stranger' females and seize their infants. One infant was then killed and partially eaten: the other was 'rescued' and carried by three different males. Once several males were found eating a freshly killed 'stranger' infant. A similar event was observed in Uganda by Dr. Suzuki and Dr. Nishida reports an incident from the Mahali Mountains, Tanzania. A different kind of killing occurred at Gombe when a female and her daughter killed and ate three infants of other females of the same community during a 2-year period. There is evidence suggesting that other infants may have died in this way. The paper draws attention to puzzling aspects of infant killing and cannibalism in chimpanzees.


Notice it's by your old girlfriend. So if you become Prez, you'll institute cannibalism and infanticide, huh? Nice platform!

There are 7.13 hoomings walking, crawling, dancing, limping, cavorting, cantering, and lying about on the face of Gaia as I write this. We have more hoomings than the planet knows what to do with. Dem hoomings lis like bedbugs, Myrtle! So mebbe dem chimps was suggesting somep'n. 'Course that raises two major questions--which ones to eat, and how to cook 'em.

My grandfather said that he was told my a cannibal chieftain that the best part of a man to eat was the palms of his hands. A delicacy, so to speak. That would especially be true in our times when the human palm has been softened by hours of mindless applauding of halfwits with large amplifiers, I s'pose.

Now 7.13 billion is quite a lot, and the graph is rapidly curving upward. We really need that FTL drive, Rapp. How's that coming?

Also consider that this means there are over 2.27x10^10 human teeth being carried around on this planet. 22,720,000,000,000 teeth is quite a lot, innit?

Got it nailed up tight on the quantum level. Now, if Schroedinger's quantum harmonic oscillation equations can be resolved (or derived) with the Bose-Einstein equation using with the Hermite Polynomial, and the result harmonized with the time variable, then we can begin to see that FTL would be possible by simply ignoring Einstein's limitation on the speed of light and, in fact, "tunneling through" to use another dimension's x-photons entirely. Powered by Bose particles, the energy source would need little power and I have already created such a "battery"; it is currently spread over a hundred or so hectares and needs to be made somewhat smaller for practical application. I hope to have a working prototype in the next few years.

Perhaps the basic difference between humans and chimps is the human ability to recognize "cute". Human babies are cute. That's why we don't usually eat them. Chimp babies are cute too, at least to human eyes. But do adult chimps understand cuteness? I think not. So, sometimes a baby chimp starts to look a bit too much like a pork chop. And pork chops, though remarkably handsome and thoroughly delicious, are not cute worth a damn.

If you get to Zweibrücken, say hello to the Heinz family for me and chuck a penny in the Rosengarten pond (just don't get caught... them their Krouts is pretty down on that there eh?). Oh, yeah, the bakery that Carl Heinz started? My old man and him made a lot of coin. My old man would buy flour and contract him to bake a thousand loaves of bread. He'd make 1100 loaves for the PX and they would split the profit on 100 he sold in his bakery. Speaking of, ahhh, errrr, crafty, my old man's scam on buying Mercs to be shipped to Montreal was fuckin brilliant. He was invited to and given a personal tour of the factory. Elvis bought Mercs from him (no scam there; my old man got cut rates)... even had him and Mum over for supper once. He was well trained as an intelligence and subvert warfare officer.

Hi, Mom! I was driving through Nashville, Tennessee today and saw a billboard advertising "robotic hair transplant". Why would anyone want robotic hair? If I were vain enough to want a hair transplant, I'd want human hair. And if robotic hair is so great, why are all the robots in movies bald as bowling balls. If robotic hair doesn't even work on robots, how the heck is it supposed to work on humans?

Well, of` COURSE bowling balls are bald. Can you imagine what a bowling alley would sound like if they were wearing hairpieces? That clean smashing sound of wood on wood would be gone, replaced by a sort of smarmy muffled dragging kind of fwoosh sound. It would be the laughingstock of sound bites! All the other sound bites would snicker, chuckle, smirk, guffaw, and grimace whenever someone played the old "bowling alley sound clip". A national disgrace would ensue. Not to mention the shedding problem.

TO be fair, a national disgrace is probably going to ensue anyway, even if bowling balls stay bald. But at least it won't be about either robot hair OR bowling ball hair.
