I have a dominant Major FIfth in theology, with an occasional flatted second thrown in.

Anyway, I have always said that science is going into some funny places, and this article from PhysOrg.com proves it:

No joke: Laughter may well be the best medicine
General Science : January 12, 2006

It's been said laughter is the best medicine, but no one has yet to prove it. Now a Japanese scientist is unlocking the secrets of the funny bone, which he believes can cheer up people's genes.

Geneticist Kazuo Murakami has teamed up on the study with an unlikely research partner: stand-up comedians, who he hopes -- no joke -- can turn their one-liners into efficient, low-cost medical treatment.

Genes are usually regarded as immutable, but in reality more than 90 percent of them are dormant or less active in producing protein, so some types of stimulation can wake them up.

Murakami's tentative theory is that laughter is one such stimulant, which can trigger energy inside a person's DNA potentially helping cure disease.

"If we prove people can switch genes on and off by an emotion like laughter, it may be the finding of the century which should be worth the Nobel Prize or even go beyond that," said Murakami, 70, director of Japan's Foundation for Advancement of International Science.

Three years ago, Murakami and Yoshimoto Kogyo Co. Ltd., a leading entertainment company, jointly carried out their first experiment to let diabetics laugh at a comedy show performed by the firm's top stand-up comedians after listening to a monotonous college lecture.

The two-day experiment showed that their blood glucose levels -- a key gauge for development of diabetes -- became lower after they laughed compared with after listening to the yawning lecture.

His latest experiment with the entertainment firm spotted at least 23 genes that can be activated. Eighteen of them are designed to work for immune response, signal transduction and cell cycle, while functions of the remaining five others are still unknown.

The findings, which Murakami says are the first of their kind, are scheduled to be published in January by Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, a US academic journal.

"A laughing therapy has no side-effect, meaning it is an epoch-making treatment for clinical medicine," he said. "One day it won't be a joke to see patients receive a prescription for a comedy video at a pharmacy for medical treatment."

I really like MMario's notion of thinking of it as a tune...OdsZong! (God's Song). The plaentary methane cycle is only one couple in a far grander scheme of interweaving counterpoints, couplets, triplets, quatrains, dactyls, anapests, trimeters, heptameters, and iambs. Could we see the rhyme scheme complete, what wisom woudl be ours...sigh...that's corny, isn't it, but, ya know, I get corny thinking about God... :D

But more important than the lyrical structure, if I may add the thought, is the TUNE!! Oh, the tune!! A delicate blend of motifs and contra-motifs, accelerandos, andantinos, fugal expositions, drifting cadenzas of myriad cadence, crescendos, diminuendos, martoso mae no troppo, elusive ostinatos, polyphonic plagal cadences and never-ending Amens. What an ear it would give you to understand THAT tune!!

As they used to say on one of my preferred television broadcasts, yeeeHAW!

Just because you managed to keep the blood out of the gutters, it doesn't mean it's a suitable place for your mind...

Anyway, I'm in enough trouble with just two sisters. More than that does not bear thinking about. Trust me.

Wanna come up to Pocatello this weekend? I can pick you up at the airport tomorrow. You can meet the girls and we're buying the beer & pizza & paint and stuff. Yessir, just me and Pat and five girls from the U. and a nun. All weekend. They'll be doing...things...in the basement apartment. I won't tell you what exactly is it they'll be doing, but it promises to be pretty darned kinkly. I'll give you a hint, though: it involves soft, cuddly rollers and "brushes."

I don't have swords, I have a few knives, and some good cooking knives, but what is really good, I now have an Invisible Fence! The dogs already know something is up, and won't go near the fence or the little flags as they wear their new snug collars that make a noise when they get close to the wire! Huzzah! Maybe this keeping-dogs-in-my-backyard business is going to work after all! My two girls loved having a visitor here most of the morning as he set the system up. Of course, while we're doing the training I have to put the dogs in the truck, take off their collars, drive across the wire and park in the neighbor's yard across the street (I asked and it's okay). We'll go for our walk, then we'll get back in the truck, back across the street and up into the garage, where I'll put the sensor collars back on and let them back into the yard.

So keep yer sticks and stones and swords. I have dogs to protect me, and a system to protect them (if they stay in the yard they're safer than if they can get out.)

As an aside, I talked to a neighbor today who was out walking. She said she was terrified of pitbulls and the dog trainer was talking to her about the bad rap that pitbulls get. I invited her to come into the yard to meet my two pooches. When she saw Cinnamon (the pit) she said she remembered seeing this dog as a stray in the field across the road and shooing her off. I kind of figured that was what had been happening to her, and that's why she was so quick to stick around here when I called her and petted her. The neighbor remembered seeing her lying in the field and wondering if she was dead and seeing her move her head but was afraid to go look closer (sob! that was this lovely dog in that field! She'd been hit by a car and was banged up and had broken teeth and someone bit her when she was down. . . poor baby!) .

Sniff.

Okay. I'm better now. And to the point, she's much better now.

Besides, I don't have a snickersnee. Nor do I have a cutlass, a falchion, a katana, a sai, a scimitar, a shamshir, a xiphos, a dao, a seax, a kriegsmesser, a flyssa, a kopis, a bokin, a barong, a yataghan, a pulwar, a kindjal or a kriss.

I have a cavalry saber and a smallsword, three epees, and a fencing saber.

(I also have a main gauche, a rifleman's knife, a couple patch knives, a couple guthook knives, a "survival" knife, a knife made from a 3/4 ton truck spring, a boot knife, a Buck General, and several pocket knives. I do NOT run with knives, swords, bayonets, scissors, hedge clippers or any pointy thing because you could stumble and put your eye out.)

The planet farts and supplies food for various sorts of early life.

The life forms die and decompose, becoming fodder for the planet which converts them back into planet farts.

These farts supply food for various forms of early life.

And new research has discovered that our planet used to fart more than it does now:

A team of University of Minnesota scientists has discovered how iron- and chromium-rich rocks can generate natural gas (methane) and related hydrocarbons when reacted with superheated fluids circulating deep beneath the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. Because the process is completely nonbiological, the hydrocarbons could have been a source of "food" for some of the first organisms to inhabit the Earth. Also, methane is a potent greenhouse gas, and this process may have contributed to global warming early in geologic time, the researchers said.




This doesn't really lead to anything but it makes me chuckle.

Bigfoot fever erupted last month when some fish farm workers claimed to have spotted three of the beasts -- two adults and a youngster -- on the edge of a forest reserve in southern Johor state.

Their improbable tale was lent some authority soon after when an Orang Asli -- an indigenous ethnic group known for their expertise in the jungle -- also said he had stumbled across one of the legendary ape-men.

"He saw the creature which was hairy and brownish in colour, it was about 12 feet (four metres) tall," said Johor National Parks director Hashim Yusoff.

"It was not aggressive, but the Orang Asli was startled by the creature and ran away.

"My personal feeling is that there is a possibility it could be what we call in Malaysia the 'mawas' ... more of a primate," he said. "But we don't deny the sightings," he added, insisting that the Orang Asli "do not lie."

"We've got to prove it and we've got to do it scientifically."

Wildlife authorities have embarked on a quest to verify the claims, and are considering mounting camera traps to capture images of anything roaming the jungles.

Organising a blues festival I don't know about specifically, but on the general principals of organising festival stuff, go mad now.
It'll mean people are used to it by the event. Much better than going mad the week before it. You're posting to Moab, so that's a good start.

The next popular exercise is getting artistic types to actually give you a useful answer if they're going to be there or not. Unlees you pin them down, they'll still be telling you maybe until three days after it's finished.
A useful warm-up for this is trying to heard an infinite number of cats away from several plates of salmon, without annoying any of them...

Whilst doing this, you should be using your other hand to try and hold off the real world, comprising such necessary evils as venues, caterers etc, who also like to know what they're supposed to be doing.

Promise yourself that you'll get someone else to organise the next one. I know a couple who took a year off organising our annual trip to a festival, by getting married. They organised a wedding as light relief instead that year.

And remember to enjoy it!!!!
