That's why I've been thinking of things like that lately. I'm going mathematically insane. I'm looking at license plates and translating the numbers into 1337. And it's all the fault of the City of Pocatello making me actually do a budget and work with numbers. Real numbers, like the square root of -1 (which is my budget for the next fiscal year).

What two prime numbers, when added together, produce an even number as a sum? (I've been thinking about things like this lately.)

I just sent around an email to all my relatives because it said it was a money angel and would make me rich in 4 days if I sent it to six poeple, and in TWO days if I sent it to 12 poeople. I think that is wnderful, but how does it know? Anyway, I really would like to be rich, so I am forwarding it. I know it might not be true, but then, it MIGHT!

I used to have lousy teeth, lousy eyesight, and hurt in every joint and bone. It's lots better now, because it's pure hell growing younger as you age.

The dentist has left my mouth feeling so strange! Right now it is tingling, but when I touch my face, it is only pressure, no other sensation. No wonder he said to keep my food soft today.

Lunch of scrambled eggs, a cup of yogurt, and a bowl of spinach. I guess that will do it. Mac and cheese tonight. Two more dentist appointments to go before I'm all fixed up. . . I used to have perfect teeth, and perfect eyesight. Getting older is the pits.

Okay, will you send me ten thousand US dollars so that I can start a low-power FM radio station here? We'd be broadcasting to the visually impaired and those who can't get out easily (or anyone else who wants to tune in). The programming would be all talk, all the time -- recorded books, story hours, the obituaries from the local paper, the "what's going on" column from same, TRUE debates about community issues, etc.

I really appreciate folks who take charge and make something good happen without a lot of bull attached, so to speak. I know that's a heretical thing to say in these hallowed halls, but, well, sometimes even the truth must come out.

I've turned off the news, and I'll get the paper in the driveway in the morning to see if they've made any sense of this story. At least with the newspaper, I read it once and I'm finished. Turning on the tv means it is in your face, sound bite by sound bite.

And now for something completely different:

I could make all sorts of comment upon the following bit of news, but I shall refrain.

Human bone marrow has been used to create early-stage sperm cells for the first time, a scientific step forward that will help researchers understand more about how sperm cells are created.

The research published today (Friday, April 13 2007), in the academic journal Reproduction: Gamete Biology, was carried out in Germany by a team of scientists led by Professor Karim Nayernia, formerly of the University of Göttingen but now of the North-east England Stem Cell Institute (NESCI), based at the Centre for Life in Newcastle upon Tyne.

I know a guy once who got a call from a brother hitting him up to borrow $12,000 so his brother could give the money to his church, and get a brass plaque embedded in a wall with the brother's name on it. The guy, understandably, declined to lend him the dough, figuring if it meant that much to him he'd find his own damn money.

Oddly enough, he never heard from that brother again, and is not too perturbed over it, either.

This came to mind as I read your post regarding your suggestion to BWL. Not sure why.

Boldly done, fair damsel. We have breached 17.1K!! One thing about reaching these higher numbers, they have so many syllables it makes the doggerel much harder. I had to resort to the faintly ridiculous "seventeen of K" construction to make some lines scan in the last herculean surge. Maybe I will reserve my poetic efforts for round K numbers only, thus postponing the inevitable.

BTW, does anyone know where I can get a really low Erdős number?. I suppose used ones would do. Say, 2 or 3?   It's like Mister Rapaire's green laser -- it is not that I really need it, but it would be cool to have.

I've had that experience -- you walk in after fighting your way there through the weather and the Boss says, "We're closing, 'cause there's a blizzard coming, so go home." Then you start for home and the blizzard hits while you're driving.

Amos, I'll tell you what. You get me that H&H .700 Nitro Express with a couple cases of ammo and I'll sell it and split the take evenly with you (it the take's an odd number, like $0.97, I'll give you the overage)! Now, how's THAT for a deal, huh? You aren't going to get an offer like this every day, so you'd better hurry up and accept it! This offer won't last long, because I've already got a counteroffer from some guy in Blind River, Ontario, but I always offer something like this to Mom's Kids first.

Good timing, Amos. I spotted a review for that movie and put it in my Netflix queue last week. Should I bump it up to the top?

My back yard is now mowed. Geez, Louise, was that a tough job, took about three hours instead of the usual hour and a half. Tall and juicy, that describes the vegetation back there. Stalled out in the tall grass a couple of times. The front went about as usual, but it had been mowed more recently. As I pushed the mower down to the end of my side yard I could see Mama duck standing on the other side of my next door neighbor's house, watching where I was headed with that mower.

Good, Mama!

I'm heading to drive Moonglow back to school, so Amos and Mike, you keep an eye on Mom now, will you?

We have other means of protecting you from rhinos, Rapaire. We stand on a street corner and wave colored strips of paper in particular patterns. It is very effective. There hasn't been a loose rhino within fifty miles of me snce I started doing this.


And it's a hell of a lot cheaper than your Nitro gun.

So...Amos, will you buy me a new rifle? Here's the scoop from Field and Stream on what I want. It's not an assault rifle or anything.....

...Holland & Holland will build you an exquisite double rifle for its .700 Nitro Express cartridge, which fires a 1,000-grain bullet at 2000 fps. The price for the rifle is approximately $200,000, and it takes H&H three and a half to four years to build one. The cartridges cost about $100 apiece.

Nothing wimp about the .,470, which has also been known to knock a rhino head over teakettle from a standing start, and kill him in the process. Ruark remarks it is a very strange site to see a full-grown rhino flip end over end from standing.

In my eternal quest for the perfect typo, I wrote "whino" for "rhino" above. I think there must be, in some dimension or universe, a great, hard-shelled beast called a "whino" who drinks Thunderbird and complains bitterly about how beset upon he is by life.

.470. Wimp caliber. .600 Nitro Express -- now THERE'S a man's round! If a .30-06's recoil is rated as 1.0, this sucker's at 9.4! Broken collarbones and broken shoulders have resulted from the use the .600 Nitro Express, which was developed solely to stop a charging elephant or rhino dead in its tracks!

(Kinda reminds me of the hunting scene in Terry Southern's The Magic Christian. Only the .600 Nitro Express is real and has been used for hunting elephant and rhino.)

Well, with Rapaire going on about one shot, one kill, in his best Robert Ruark wannabe style, you might wanta check just behind the carburetor for a .470 caliber hole such a smight be left by an elephant gun. Ya never know with all these duckdogs about what piece of time is going to become ensorcelled and entangled with what and by whom.

By the way if you haven't seen a recent (last August, I think) movie called "The Illusionist" I recommend it most highly. Now on DVD at Blockbuster.
