By the way, we have not yet discussed Caflisch's "Multiscale Mathematics For Plasma Kinetics Spanning Multiple Collisionality" or electron impact ionization of edge plasma constituents and electron attachment of hydrogen compounds. Nothing has yet appeared on Dermasterias imbricata's genome size (the smallest of the echinoderms), nor has anyone discussed A Modular, Open-Source (AMOS) whole genome assembler or even why Amos would want to assemble a whole open-source genome. Is he plotting to create some new race of super-beings, like some mad scientist in a laboratory bent upon conquering the world? And if so, why?

If the aerial photos of alluvial loess formations demonstrate a pattern of waves, could you say that loess is moire? If an uncontained wildfire developed there, would the firefighters be smoking moire but enjoining it loess?

Inquiring and enquiring minds want to know.

But now, by merely mentioning it, it has been discussed. After a fashion. Name it and you create the discussion or at least you create the zone for the discussion.

BTW: They're doing the pledge drive on our local PBS station this week. I watched Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams with Carnegie Mellon University Professor Randy Pausch and it turns out one of his childhood heroes was Captain Kirk. He instead got to meet William Shatner, and it happened when Shatner came to him to learn more about Virtual Reality for a book he was working on (about the science of Star Trek that has actually happened). Nice story. Pausch has since died, it really was his last lecture (pancreatic cancer, which he knew he wouldn't recover from at the time of the lecture.)

He didn't ask, "What has been discussed on the MOAB?", which would be something like asking how long a Moebius strip is up. He asked, "What hasn't been discussed on the Mudcat?". There is only one answer: quatrefolial loess extrusion in natural alluvial fan regions.

I think that's the only one.

And Shatner. Shatner has been discussed here on a few occasions.

Well, Don, you could look in the index. And the Table of Contents is pretty complete too.

But to save you time and effort, here's a summary:

freds, Ralphs, Khandu, money, Tweed, tweed, Martians, interplanetary invasions, physics, metaphysics, various languages, poetry of all sorts, prose of all sorts, the Idaho Legion, beer, wine, whiskey, whisky, kilts, swords, duels, guns, libraries, bars, jails, gaols, kayaks, dogs, skunks (human and animal), mountains, holes of all sorts, Gluon and the Gluonettes, food, Amos, MMario, Little Hawk, AND A VARIETY OF OTHER THINGS TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION (sorry, the caps came on).

Hope that helps.

Oh, yeah -- music, instruments, politics, mathematics, logic, philosophies, Stilly River Sage, peace, war, Dadaism, giant squids, Loooooooooong John Sliver, ghosts, the living, the dead, the living dead, the dead living, and other stuff.

I would release the video of test subjects for the CIA microwave testacle bomb. Just aim low and BLOWEE.
When Cheney heard the intel on this weapon he feared it would get into enemy hands and now keeps his balls in an undisclosed location.

I had the same thought pass through my mind, Stilly. I think the truth of the matter is that Amos' subconscious mind is riddled with graphic sexual imagery that his conscious mind is unaware of and the images keep creeping into his discourse...or should I say his intercourse?

I learned that from Ol' Sam one night when we were drinking Dick Brothers' beer in a disreputable joint in East Hannibal, Illinois. Sam was in town, part of a trip on the Upper River to deliver cotton to La Crosse, Wisconsin and was stuck in Hannibal due to low water at Lock and Dam 20, so he called me and I hot-footed it down to Hannibal and we went disreputable tavern hoppin.

I am a trained information hunter-gatherer. My training dictates that I share information I gather with those who need it. Amos asked who Miss Oula was, and I provided a comprehensive answer (which could have been much longer, but which I edited because so much of it seemed redundant -- do you have any idea how many "John Smiths" are in her guestbook?). And for that I am reviled, castigated, and called nasty names.

Ah well, I suppose that those of us who Know can expect nothing else. That's the way it's been throughout history, and I really shouldn't expect anything different. I think I'll go into bed, pull up the covers, and whimper.

Oh well, tomorrow is Another Day. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I'll do something or other tomorrow -- it's only a day away....

Miss Oula is the lady this town is named after. Back in the 1870s, this was just a couple of log shacks in a valley of the Clark Fork River. Cowboys, miners, and other disreputable sorts gathered here, usually with the law or wives searching for them. One day, a woman showed up. She was driving a wagon filled with other women, patent nostrums for various male complaints, and other things needed on the frontier.

No one ever knew her first name; they just called her "Miss Oula". She nursed those hardy pioneers through epidemics of bubonic plague, yaws, cholera, beri-beri, measles, syphilis, chickenpox, bullets, and other hazards. Miss Oula and her companions comforted the men in their need, charging them only the going rate. They cooked meals for them and charged only a slight markup. Eventually Miss Oula had won the hearts of all of the men in the county, and then the men's wives arrived.

Obviously they couldn't associate with Miss Oula and her girls, but they were very grateful for what had been given to their husbands. Miss Oula and Co. were ordered into a small section of town near the railhead, but the town's name was changed from "That Stinkin' Piece Of Unreal Estate On The Clark Fork River, Montana" to "Miss Oula, Montana" in her mammary. Eventually the post office, which kept confusing "Miss Oula" with someplace in Mississippi and hence delayed payment of various government pensions and other checks slammed "Miss" and "Oula" together to create the name the town currently bears: Missoula, Montana.

Miss Oula herself was killed by an irate husband; the reasons behind this are too sordid to go into in detail but they involve manacles, leather underwear, another man, a turtle, two barrel cacti, and an irate husband who couldn't hit the side of the barn from the inside.

Miss Oula's funeral procession took two days to pass the center of town, primarily because of the saloons there. With two hearses and literally tens of mourners (the town still wasn't very big) there was great moaning and wailing and keening and drinking. The wake before the funeral took two months and completely depleted the local ice supply (embalming hadn't reached this far West yet) and the entire liqour supply of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming.

The location of her grave is unknown, since no one could remember where they buried her. People tried, but the headaches and upset stomachs resulting from her wake didn't wear off until 1918 and by then the US was at war with Prohibition and folks had other things on their minds.

And so she lays buried somewhere in these hills, unless floods or avalanches or something have carried her body off, but her mammary lives on.

(NOTE: It's state law in Montana that Miss Oula be stricken from history, so when writing about her one is required to use the term "mammary" instead of the more common term denoting rememberance. This was forced into the Statutes by the aforesaid wives and subverted by the aforesaid cowboys, miners, and other ne'er-do-wells.)

Yes, Mom, I'm here in Montana and today we're going to see Pat's cousin Bernie. You remember him -- he's the guy who put the cabins in shape for PBS's show on pioneer living a few years ago, when the modern families lived for year as they would have if it were 1840 or something. He also restored some of the houses at the old leper colony on Molokai. Quite the traditional woodworker and carpenter: we have a footstool he made Pat for a wedding gift; it's all pegged, not a nail or drop of glue in it and still as firm as the day it was made.

Tomorrow we'll head off for Post Falls, carrying the things people donated earlier this year for the auction. That's the Pacific Northwest Library Association, and next year it's meeting here in Missoula for it's CENTENNIAL celebration. Yes, Mom, it's the oldest regional library association in the WHOLE WORLD and still the only one that's international! And my second-in-command at work is the President this year and next (the other President resigned back in February).

So anyway, Mom, that's what's going on and why I'm in Missoula, a city in Montana.

Mom, did you know that LH had a dirty mind?
