On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Five lousy pimps,
Four calling whores
Three condom makers
Two S-M masters
And a dominatrix with a pair free....

Yeah, but he ain't MOAB!!

That's right! This thread is only big enough for one potter, and I'm it!

Okay, I lied. The damned things big enough for twelve potters, eleven wood turners, ten watercolorists, nine oil painters, eight toy makers, seven sculptors, six soap makers, five jewelers, four glass blowers, three basket weavers, two photographers, and a tie-dye artist, with room left over for a leatherworker or two.

That's well and good, but my pit bull does a "helicopter" wag--her tail literally goes in circles! And I'm certain that she's somehow teaching this to the blue heeler, because I've seen her tail do a few loops lately. I'm sure there is left and right going in there also, but when she's wagging so hard that she whips you with that tail, it's more a case of figuring out which side doesn't sting as much when she whallops you with it.

I'm just glad they're happy to see me.

And this is a recent favorite anonymous quote: "I want to be the kind of person my dog thinks I am."

Wow....Stilly, he's a keeper! :D

And here's one for you as you do your daily decoding of doggy dynamics:

The New York Times features an article on how to interpret the angle of wag in a doggy's tail. And thereby hangs a...oh, never mind! Thought you'd be interested.

So.

Lucky they got out when they did, all of the museum quality sticky stuff wouldn't have helped hold pots, let alone shelving, in place with yesterday afternoon's storm. My driveway looked like a boat ramp for a little while.

Hi, Mom!

I have a question for you:

Why do they call the act of riding a horse "horseback riding"? Why don't they just call it "horse riding"? What other part of a horse besides the back could one possibly sit on while riding?

They don't call bicycle riding "bicycleseat riding", do they?

Could he swim? That's the important question today. The creek rose over the bridge and several feet up my driveway this afternoon. (We had a little rain episode.) I'm not sure how much, but both of the dog dishes are full and they aren't under anything that would amplify the volume of water they collected. The deeper of the two dishes is at least five inches. (Not scientific, dog-dish-rain-gauges, but good for estimates).

Man has so often come to grief
On the shoals of deep belief
Seeking mystic higher powers
Praying, singing hymns for hours,
Spending months away from layity
To discern some brand new deity.

All this sweat and pain historic
Is at bottom, myth folkloric
All the hubbub, and the din
Driven by deep fear of sin.
Not just buried sins within you,
But those that some might try agin you.

Now comes science, unembarassed
To the fields that Faith has harassed,
Dispels panic, myth and rumor,
Gods of grief and guilt and humor.
With a model we can try on --
Sin is born from antipions!

Now the path becomes quite simple!
Toss the habit, and the wimple!
Toss the bishop, overweening
And the priest, so lost for meaning!
Extract pions from all quarters,
And add them to the drinking water!!

Antipions. They cause folks like Jimmy Swaggart and Pat Robertson to eventually disappear. The mathematical underpinnings are complex, conclusive, and can give those suffering from antipions what is technically known as "antipion wedgies" as a sort of warning of what is going to happen.

I was at fencing when you posted that. It is, without doubt, the single most important thing I have ever read. It has changed my life. I can now crack eggs and not get bits of shell in the egg. I can leap tall buildings with at least a single bound. I can drink beer and not spill any. Most importantly, I know approximately how long I have to put up with these damned pions! Here I am, sitting quietly, whiling away the hours slamming protons together just for the hell of it, and WHAMMO! suddenly I'm surrounded by a flock of pions! No quark-antiquark pairs, just these damned pions, buzzing around and stinging. And no Gluon, of course!, there to help -- Gluon's off doing something slightly impolite on a rug in the 7th dimension or somewhere. Well, I think that it's the most important thing I've read, mostly because I'm nearly out of pionicide spray.

M O O O M!!



They've figure out the duration of the PION!!

"THE LIFETIME OF THE CHARGELESS PION, the lightest particle made of
quark-antiquark pairs, has been determined to higher levels of
precision in a new experiment at Jefferson Laboratory in Virginia.
According to experimentalist Liping Gan (Univ of North
Carolina-Wilmington), speaking at the APS meeting, the neutral pion
lifetime is one of the few quantities that can be directly
calculated (to about 1% precision) in quantum chromodynamics (QCD),
the theory of the strong force, which holds together quarks and
quark-containing objects. In Jefferson Lab*s Primakoff Experiment,
the researchers aim a gamma-ray beam at nuclei, which perpetually
has a cloud of photons around it.

Through a phenomenon known as the
Primakoff effect, two photons (one from the target nucleus and
another from the photon beam) interact and make a chargeless pion,
which decays into two daughter photons. Measuring the daughter
photons reconstructs the details of the decay and provides lifetime
information about the pions. The new experiment is more precise than
past Primakoff effect experiments because the incident photons
(produced from the deceleration of Jlab*s electron beam) are
"tagged," meaning that the researchers can keep track of the numbers
of incoming photons hitting the nuclear targets, as well as their
energies. When the photons emerge from the decay, an advanced
calorimeter (called HyCal) is able to measure the daughter photons'
trajectories and energies to high precision.

Ashot Gasparian of
North Carolina A&T State University said the calculated lifetime of
the pion is 82 attoseconds with about a 2.9% error
[(8.20+/-0.24)x10^-17 sec]. The new, preliminary result is two
times more precise than the present value published in particle data
tables [8.4+/-(0.6)x10^-17s], and the precision can potentially
double as researchers analyze all of their data and finalize their
result."

Is that KEWL, or WHAT???!!
