Speaking of things bearing likenesses...

Does the image revealed in this dental x-ray most closely resemble:

A) Guitarist Eric Clapton circa 1974
B) Guitarist Pete Townshend circa 1974
C) A young rabbi/carpenter from Nazareth circa 0001
D) Bee-dubya's ex-brother-in-law Bill circa 1985

The more it goes on, the sillier it gets. Not only was there a flaky pastry bun shellacked and put on display in Nashville, because it "looked just like Mother Teresa", but now someone broke in and stole the damn thing!

Nun Bun stolen from Tenn. coffeehouse



Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - When Bob Bernstein arrived at his coffeehouse to assess the scene of an early Christmas morning break-in, the one thing he noticed missing was the cinnamon bun that bears a striking likeness to Mother Teresa.

Bernstein said he believes that the culprit is someone angry over the shop displaying the world-famous pastry, which has been preserved with shellac. A jar of money next to the Nun Bun was not stolen.
"They went right for the bun," he said. "Unfortunately I think it's somebody who wanted to take it to destroy it."

The Nun Bun gained worldwide attention in 1996 when a customer nearly took a bite of it before recognizing the revered nun in the folds of flaky pastry.

The bun was featured on world news programs, "The Late Show" with David Letterman and was even mentioned on episodes of "The Nanny" and "Mad About You."

The shop, Bongo Java, sold T-shirts, prayer cards and mugs with the bun's image before Mother Teresa wrote a personal letter to the coffeehouse asking the sales be stopped."

Don't play with your swords in the yurt or you'll pierce the walls and have to avoid the draft.

A knowledge of the historic and philosophical background gives that kind of independence from prejudices of his generation from which most scientists are suffering. This independence created by philosophical insight is?in my opinion?the mark of distinction between a mere artisan or specialist and a real seeker after truth."

Ah! Two friends in D.C., but they don't know each other so I didn't bother to try to point them at each other. But I'll sit here in Texas and hope that they will each go out with their loved ones for a nice meal in the same fine restaurant ("fine" is not to be confused with "expensive") and perhaps their eyes will meet across the room and they'll smile their pleasure. . .

Have a good stay there, Rap!

Me, I wasn't online yesterday much but Mom understands--I was busy finishing shopping with the kids (their gifts to their father and for each other) and then we returned home to fix dinner for friends who came over in the late afternoon. We roasted two chickens and warmed bread sticks (okay, they came from the store, but they are great with extra garlic powder and dipped in marinara sauce) and tossed a Cesare salad and a friend brought her great green beans (bacon and onions added) and a multi-grain rice based dish, and we topped it off with herbal tea and christmas cookies.

You know it's one of those low-pressure great get-togethers when you can run a holiday movie in the background, and every so often the conversation stops and someone says "this is my favorite part" as Santa nudges the child down the chute, everyone laughs at the scene, then, because we've all seen the movie many times, we go back to talking.

The cat and dog are both feeling better, the weather is STILL warm and dry. It doesn't really feel like christmas outside, but indoors it is shaping up. No tree this year (no room and no money) but we've set up a christmas train on a large drop-leaf table and will put gifts in the center area and let our main engineer (my 13-year-old) keep the thing on the tracks. (It's an inexpensive made-in-China holiday train, not Lionel as has been discussed by MOABites elsewhere).

Owing to the gradual slowing down of the Earth's rotation, the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service, based at the Paris Observatory, has announced that 2005 will contain an extra second.


The required leap second will be added at the end of 31st December, thus delaying the arrival of 2006 by one second. Although this will be the 23rd such leap second to be added since its introduction at the end of June 1972, this year's leap second will be the first for seven years.

I have discovered a sadistic streak within myself! If you've spent any time at all wrapping Christmas presents you know that some wrapping papers are printed so that the designs repeat themselves every so often. You also know that this feature helps you cut the paper more straightly. If you start your cut at, say, the picture of a star on a Christmas tree, you aim your cut for the next star.

Well, I've discovered that I particularly enjoy starting cuts so that I can cut off Rudolph's red nose, Frosty's carrot nose or Santa's beard. I particularly like cutting the legs from the three wise men's camels, and slashing the little drummer boy's drum thrills me to no end.

Be Careful What You Wish For--You Might Just Get It.

So, this morning I'm complaining about the dog's nocturnal breakouts, and concluded "why can't she do it in the daytime, when she's easier to find?"

Yup. She did it again. This morning I found her in the next door neighbor's back yard, but she outsmarted herself, because they have a nice solid wrought iron fence in concrete footings all around their yard except on the common side where my chain link fence is between us. She couldn't get back, but she couldn't get out to anyplace else either. I examined the fence line very closely and concluded that this terrier climbed a tree and went over the top (some low stobs on a hackberry along the fence acted like steps). I have now chopped and sawed those branches and any others that might remotely support her from the fence line.

She is such a nice dog, but she's beginning to get annoying.

LONDON: Men who want to carve up the dancefloor should take a good look at their bodies before launching into a waltz or foxtrot in the hope of impressing a woman.

Scientists have discovered that the best male dancers tend to have more symmetrical body features, in a study that suggests dancing ability may be sexually appealing because it conveys useful information about a man's physical fitness.

Many species, including humans, are known to prefer mates with symmetrical features, which are thought to show good health, sound genes and a lack of parasites, all of which may enhance reproductive success.

The research indicates dancing ability could be another signal of these traits, helping people, particularly women, to choose an appropriate mate.




SRS, this could be important.

When the elderberry go from ripe to rotten in the Pacific Northwest there is a stage in between when fermentation has taken place. Kind of like when you forget and leave the uneaten portion of your lunch in the truck overnight and the grapes ferment in their baggie, right before they turn to vinegar. The birds would eat the elderberries and get looped, and black bears have been known to overindulge in the fruit and stagger around.

I haven't seen this personally, it could be folklore, but then, bears are a lot smaller than elephants and it would take a lot less fermented fruit to make them fruit loops, wouldn't it? It is plausible.

And the saga continues. The dog that got the cat two days ago made a break for it last night (why doesn't she make a hole under the fence during the daylight when I can find her more easily?). I took the second dog along and stuffed a pocket full of dog snacks and then brush-bashed up the creek bank through several neighbors' back yards. Lots of greenbriar out there. We followed Cinnamon as she darted around out of reach, and finally realized that she was just sharing the adventure with us as we tagged along. I turned toward home, and pointedly had Poppy sit and receive a couple of treats, and Cinnamon (after bashing through the muddy creek so she's kind of messy today) came along and let me put the leash on her and we came home. I piled rocks up against the last patch over the hole in the fence.

The nearest zoo was hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of miles away from where I grew up. Our town was so poor that we couldn't even afford to have the Republicans put up a sign, much less have a REAL elephant. We'd heard stories of course, but the best we could do was to go out of town and see a drunken cow or something. Even if there had been a zoo with a drunken elephant my family couldn't have afforded the entrance fee. But that was okay, because any time we wanted to see a wild animal we only had to look out and watch the wolf at our door. Finally, there was nothing left in the house to eat and no money to buy food with, so we ate the wolf. Then we didn't have anything to see when we looked outside. Just the piles of rubbish and trash, because we could only afford to live in the city dump.

Then there are those of us who don't want to believe in drunken elephants but have had the idea of drunken elephants shoved down our throats since we were children. We recall those embarassing Monday morning show-and-tells in elementary school when the other kids would talk about how their moms and dads took them to see the drunken elephants on Sunday mornings. Of course, our moms and dads had taken us fishing so we had to lie and say that we had been in Orlando or Atlanta and had made a special point of going to the zoo to see the drunken elephants. It was a pretty safe lie since the chances were pretty darned slim that any other kid from the north side of Jacksonville would have actually been at the zoo in Orlando and would say "Gee! I was watching the drunken elephants in Orlando on Sunday and I don't remember seeing you there." .

In other news, it turns out people just want to believe in drunken elephants, according to reputable scientists. I know I do!

"...Folk lore has it elephants can get drunk by eating fermented fruit rotting on the ground, but a study debunks that claim, despite "eyewitness" accounts.

The study -- to appear in the March-April issue of the journal Physiological and Biochemical Zoology -- says anecdotes of drunken elephants go back more than a century.

Steve Morris, a biologist at the University of Bristol in England and a co-author of the study told National Geographic News, "People just want to believe in drunken elephants."

Duration begins when the cop turns on his red lights and signals you over. Therefore today is not duration, nor is yesterday, nor will tomorrow be. Time can stand still, but not duration.

OFF! Down girl!

One of my dogs caught one of my cats in the bedroom this morning, and it was a mess of fur and pee and blood and slobber. Turned out the pee was from the cat and the blood was from the dog. The cat was injured, a dislocated (close as I can describe) jaw that will heal on its own as she's on a soft diet. If not, the vet will put a wire in to help it heal. She got the injury biting the dog. The dog is also being treated, for the bite, right on the bony bridge of her nose. Antibiotics all around. Including a week each for Moonglow and me--numerous little punctures on our hands and arms, probably from the cat when we waded in. I had to pry the dog off of the cat's leg, with a cat flailing around in the process. It was a wrestling match with a 55 pound pit bull, and as I stuck my fingers in her mouth and fought to pry open her jaw I think I kneed her to get her to let go. It all went fast and was very noisy. Everyone is sleeping it off tonight. Damned dog ran over to the bedroom door one time this evening, though. They're going to spend a lot more time outside once I get the garage area finished for them. Funny thing is, the dog didn't break anything or even break the skin on the cat. She's walking around my bedroom, a fluffed up cat with a lopsided grin. Vet said she might not want to eat for a couple of days, but good ol' Clementine downed her bowl of watered down canned cat food as soon as we walked in the door.

Physicists at the SLAC accelerator have measured, with much greater precision than ever before, the variation in the weak nuclear force, one of the four known physical forces, over an enormous size scale (a distance of more than ten proton diameters) for so feeble a force. Although the results were not surprising (the weak force diminished with distance as expected) this new quantitative study of the weak force helps to cement physicists' view of the sub-nuclear world.

The SLAC work is, in effect, a 21st century analog of the landmark 18th experiments in which the intrinsic strength of the electromagnetic and gravitational forces were measured (by Charles Coulomb and Henry Cavendish, respectively) through careful observation of test objects causing a torsion balance to swing around. The weak force, in the modern way of thinking, is a cousin of the electromagnetic (EM) force; both of them are considered as different aspects of a single "electroweak" force.

The EM force is much better known to physicists and to non-experts: it's responsible for all electric, magnetic, and optical phenomena, and keeps atoms intact and holds atoms together in all the molecular and crystalline forms which make up our world. Over sizes larger than the atom, the strength of the EM force is prescribed by Coulomb's law, which states that the force between two charged objects (say, two electrons) is proportional to the charges of the electrons and inversely to the square of the distance between them.

For sub-atomic distances the Coulomb way of describing electron scattering gets complicated because of vacuum polarization, a process which takes into account the fact that at short distances an electron can longer be portrayed as a lone pointlike particle; instead we must view it as accompanied by a cloud of virtual particles sprouting out of the vacuum. These extra short-lived particles serve to redefine, or "renormalize," the effective electron charge and along with it the very nature of the EM force mediating the interaction with the other electron.

New Jersey and Waukeegan don't exist anyway. They were sucked off...up...out...they disappeared a long, long time ago. I remember when it happened: there were two gigantic sucking sounds and all the flights bound for Neward had to be re-routed to places like Boggs Junction and Islip and Wells and Corn Creek. It was awful. People walked around for months looking for Paramus and Jersey City and Atlantic City. The Jersey Devil, who'd been shopping in New York City, had a nervous breakdown. The trains "Waukeegan Flyer" and "City of Waukeegan were sidetracked and the passengers eventually homesteaded the area -- there was nowhere else for them to go or do. Milwaukee folks bewailed the loss for months, wandering about and wringing their hands and going "Hoo hoo!" everywhere.
