There's a member of this forum named "MOAB"? How and when did that happen?

Mmario and Amos are right, Bee-dubya. You shouldn't say "knickers". But I'll forgive it just this once, considering the circumstances.

You know, I don't usually mind when Little Hawk brings his little friends around to visit, but that Penelope and her crowd sort of... well, there's no polite way to put it... they really chap your Mom's ass.

Now, I'll admit that I haven't really cared for any of Little Hawk's friends upon first meeting, but they've all grown on me as time has passed. That Billy Shatner boy seems to be a bit of a pompous ass, but he's really harmless. And poor Shane and his brother Don, they're so misguided, but they really mean well. Even Chongo has better table manners than any of that Twillingsgate bunch.

Now, I'm not saying Little Hawk can't bring his little Twillingsgate friends around, but he'd better not expect me to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for them!

Veronica here! LOL! You are such a rude bunch here! You're like a gathering of depraved toothless hillbillies from the Ozarks, as I imagine them in my mind's eye. Aunt Penelope looked at some of your postings, gave a disgusted snort and toss of her lovely head and marched out of the room. On her way to do something "more interesting", I expect. She has been moody lately, and getting in rows with Uncle Winston over really nothing at all, and then the next day before you know it they're all lovey-dovey again, apparently. Aunt Penelope has a way of always getting what she wants, but then she finds out it really isn't exactly what she wants after all.

I could say the same. I think it runs in the family.

At any rate, I have been having a simply smashing time racing about in my gorgeous zebra-striped car, the Porsche! (Hmm... Well, perhaps "smashing" is not the best word to use in this case.) It goes like a rocket, la, la...up hill and down dale at an incredible speed...causing astonishment and consternation to the sleepy bucolic locals hereabouts. I caused a farmer's horse to panic the other day and pull the poor man's cart, which was loaded with barrels of something, off the road into a bog! What a scene! He used some very colourful language of a type not proper to a lady, and I hope he finds a quiet moment or two to repent of that, and perhaps send a written apology round to Rutledge House. One really should not have to listen to such language on a sunny day. It spoils the whole effect. I mean, I understand the man was upset, but really...there are limits. People should learn some self-control in moments of stress.

Does anyone remember the parrot? Uncle Winston had made it the mascot over at the Vicar's Inn, where it entertained the gents in the pub nightly by swearing in the most dreadful and vituperous manner. As time went by this caused a certain deterioration in the atmosphere at the Inn, such that the more polite clientele abandoned the place and it became more and more a haunt of dissolute gentlemen of obvious means but very little character. Uncle Winston seems to be amused by such types, many of whom go on his hunting expeditions. One of them even got shot last week, but he survived. I think it was an accident.

Well, back to the bird...they had taken to giving the parrot strong liquor! This would cause him to become more raucous than ever, and to rave on madly, flapping his wings and breaking into the most filthy bawdy songs which these wretches had schooled him in. Aunt Penelople swore off going to the Inn because of this, saying it was a disgrace.

The upshot of the matter was that the poor bird apparently drank itself to death. One night in an alcoholic frenzy it had consumed several shot glasses of scotch whisky and was swaying back and forth on its perch, belting out one verse after another of "Barnacle Bill the Sailor", possibly the most obscene song in history. Suddenly the parrot stopped in mid-verse, made a strange sound, and fell off its perch! This was met by a roar of laughter from the audience, most of whom were as drunk as the bird, but their laughter soon turned to alarm when the parrot showed no signs of life. They rushed it over to the bar and attempted to revive it by fanning it. "Get back!" yelled Uncle Winston. "Give him air!" Then Bertie Matchless ran up with a shot glass of 150-year-old whisky, the best in the house, and said, "Try this! He'll come back from the dead for a shot of William Wallace '1855'.

It almost worked. They poured a teaspoon of the William Wallace, held it in front of the bird's beak and prayed silently....

The bird opened one eye blearily, fixed its reddened and failing gaze upon the William Wallace, and downed it in one last spasmodic effort, then shuddered and expired!

Uncle Winston says that at least he died happily.

I think it's terribly tragic. I bought flowers for poor Tony...the bird was named "Tony Blair" for some reason...and made a prayer for his little Avian soul. I dearly hope he doesn't go to hell, but I fear he shall, because he lived a very evil life, truth be told. Still, he was just a bird, and I don't think a bird should be held responsible for bad habits passed on to it by human beings. After all, we are stewards of these simple creatures and must bear the responsibility for them, just as we once did for the less sophisticated races around the Empire.

So, the human Tony Blair has outlived the bird. That, I think, is the most tragic part of all. We could have done far better with the bird, all things considered.

But...life goes on! I have had the servants wash and wax the car and I am planning to get a couple of girlfriends and go on a road trip. That should be great fun.

TTFN!

The cirulatory system consists of two loops. ONe from the heart to the lungs (where the blood is oxygenated) and back to the heart - the other larger, main loop is from the heart out to the body and eventually the capillaries - where the oxygen is exchanged for waste gases and then back to the heart (with a side trip through the lymphic system for some of the blood serum and even some white cells - but that's in the advanced lessons).

Arteries always carry blood away from the heart - the pulmanary arteries carry un-oxygenated blood to the lungs. The are the exception to the rule that arteries carry oxygenated blood. Veins always carry blood TO the heart - and in the case of the pulmanary viens - this is oxygenated - again, the exception to the rule that viens carry the oxygen depleted blood.

Then why does the brachial artery (in the wrist) spout bright red frothy oxygenated blood? Why does the radial artery (under the collarbone) do the same? Or the femoral artery in the groin?

Conversely, the jugular vein if cut will bleed dark, unoxygenated blood and so will the other veins.

Capillaries, for what it's worth, work the same way. The oxygenated ones are called "arterioles". You don't normally notice because when capillaries are broken they are so small that you usually break several of both sorts and the blood mixes.\

Which brings up the question of why Dracula would bite the jugular vein. No oxygen there. But then, maybe that's his idea of a quiet dinner and he saves the arteries for times when he wants a little more excitement in his food, sort of like sometimes you want a quiet sedate steak and sometimes you want habenero-scotch bonnet casserole.

It has come to my attention that my name was taken in vain recently on this thread. Well, well. I had shaken the dust of this silly forum off my heels quite some time ago, but a sort of morbid curiosity, I suppose, has compelled me to look in on it now and then. I see that Tweed is still around. Pity! He seems worried about the possibility that someone might geld him. Ha! What would be the point? No female still capable of bearing children has ever been attracted to Tweed, so I hardly think we are in danger of his genes being perpetuated or passed on in the usual fashion. No, dears, I think we can all rest easily and put that dark thought entirely out of our minds!

Things have been breathlessly busy around Rutledge Mansion, what with our frequent trips to Europe, the remodeling of the Henry the VIIIth room, the installation of the Roman baths, and Winston's beastly insistence on continuing with the "sporting life", as he calls it (the murder of innocent wild animals and the wastage of perfectly good horses), and Veronica's roaring about madly in her new Porsche! Yes, Winston bought her a zebra-striped Porsche. Veronica could not decide whether to have a black Porsche or a white one, so she said, "Make it in both colours then!" I am told it is the only one ever made in the zebra-striped scheme, and I believe it! I advised against it, not because of the price (astronomical!) or the appearance (hideous!), but because I fear that she may kill herself in it. Veronica drives just as aggressively as Winston, but with only one tenth of his experience and finesse. Like a madwoman, in other words.

It will be on her head if she comes to grief, and I may have to say "I told you so!" to her gravestone, but there seems to be nothing I can do about it.

I do long sometimes for those carefree days in southern Spain, away from the madding crowd, if I may say it, in stuffy old Twillingsgate and boring old London. Becoming married had the salutary effect of causing the immediate evaporation of a host of romantically obsessed pests who fancied themselves as my suitors, but it has burdened me with a mountain of other responsibilities that I sometimes grow weary of.

Meanwhile, Tony Blair and that apelike, subhuman creature George Bush Jr are persisting in their military madness, and the general tenor and grace of society is declining visibly with every passing season...

It's all just damned tedious if I may say so.

Resting your case is a good idea, but make sure you rest it on the floor. A case should not be confused with an airline tray-table and should never be left in a fully upright position. A case rested against a wall can tip over which can result in damage to the guitar inside the case. Headstocks are particlarly vulnerable to being broken off when cases fall over.

And for God's sake never rest your bass against a wall! I've witnessed one upright bass's neck being snapped off when the instrument tipped over after being leaned against a wall. Makes the damnedest noise you've ever heard.

The swarming behavior of ants, bees, termites, and other social insects has implications far beyond the hive. Swarm intelligence ? the collective behavior of independent agents, each responding to local stimuli without supervision ? can be used to understand and model phenomena as diverse as blood clotting, highway traffic patterns, gene expression, and immune responses, to name just a few. Swarm technology is proving useful in a wide range of applications including robotics and nanotechnology, molecular biology and medicine, traffic and crowd control, military tactics, and even interactive art.

Students and faculty in the Evolutionary and Swarm Design (ESD) Research Group at the University of Calgary, Canada, use Mac computers and Mac OS X to model swarm behavior and to apply it to an ever-increasing number of real-world problems. Swarm modeling theories provide new conceptual frameworks for extending the field of artificial intelligence and suggest new possibilities for computer hardware and software design.

Christian Jacob has led the ESD Research Group since its inception. Like many swarm researchers, he believes that biologically-inspired computational tools like the ones being developed in the ESD Research Group will prove invaluable for developing many of the important technologies of the twenty-first century.

"What I find intriguing is the fact that very similar principles seem to apply to swarm-like systems regardless of scale," Jacob says. "We can use the models that describe army ant raiding behavior to predict the behavior of automobile traffic or pedestrians on the road. The models that describe how birds and fish flock and school have practical applications in, for example, genetic algorithm test functions and the training of artificial neural network weights."

A Mind of Its Own

In contrast to the top-down organization that characterizes many human endeavors, many social species achieve their communal goals using a purely bottom-up approach with no central command-and-control structure. A swarm of termites, for example, exhibits a collective intelligence that far exceeds the intelligence of any individual insect, which by itself has limited capabilities for processing and communicating information.

The collective intelligence of the swarm emerges in a decentralized way from the actions of individual insects responding to local stimuli from the environment and, most importantly, from other members of the swarm. There is no "boss" in charge. No individual insect grasps the big picture. Yet in the aggregate, the local actions of each insect based on the local stimuli available to it can accomplish a collective goal that serves the interests of the whole community.




I wish we could do that here. I mean, demonstrate a greater intelligence overall than any of us has individually. It would be heart-swarming.

Arteries carry oxygen rich blood away from the heart. Veins carry oxygen depleted blood back to the lungs and heart. Arterial blood is bright red because it is charged (the hemoglobin is carrying oxygen); venous blood, darker in color because it is lower in oxygen.

I was once befriended by a germ who had been a horse innard -- lived along the banks of one of the main arteries and lived darned well, for a germ, getting first pick of the fresh Kentucky oxygen that coursed through the horse's lungs and heart. He, in turn, had a buddy -- also a germ -- who was never satisfied with his lot, and announced he was going to leave the artery and strike out on his own in search of adventure and a brighter, richer future. Although his fellows tried to dissuade him, this malcontent germ would hear nothing of it, and he set out wiggling one day and made his way across the great plains of the horse's internal cavities until he came to the banks of a secondary vein, which brought used blood back to the lungs for replenishment. The wandering germ found little good to sustain life there, and eventually starved to death.

"So you see," my friend the ex-horse germ said to me, "You should never change streams in the middle of a horse."

It is a lesson I have never forgotten.
