gnu, Amos was a little slow with that story. I posted it on I Read it in the Newspaper hours, nay, nearly an entire day before he did here at the MOAB.

What's it about? Better to ask what it ISN'T about, but once you have an answer, that will be included in our subject matter. Douglas Adams said it best--the MOAB is about Life, the Universe, and Everything.

I was reminded of something over on Bobert's moving day blues thread. I wondered if there were any elegies to mosquitoes.

The Mosquito
William Cullen Bryant


Fair insect! that with threadlike legs spread out
And blood-extracting bill and filmy wing,
Dost murmur, as thou slowly sail'st about,
In pitiless ears, full many a plaintive thing,
And tell how little our large veins should bleed,
Would we but yield them to thy bitter need?

Unwillingly I own, and, what is worse,
Full angrily men hearken to thy plaint;
Thou gettest many a brush and many a curse,
For saying thou art gaunt and starved and faint.
Even the old beggar, while he asks for food,
Would kill thee, hapless stranger, if he could.

I call thee stranger, for the town, I ween,
Has not the honor of so proud a birth-
Thou com'st from Jersey meadows, fresh and green,
The offspring of the gods, though born on earth;
For Titan was thy sire, and fair was she,
The ocean nymph that nursed thy infancy.

Beneath the rushes was thy cradle swung,
And when at length thy gauzy wings grew strong,
Abroad to gentle airs their folds were flung,
Rose in the sky, and bore thee soft along;
The south wind breathed to waft thee on thy way,
And danced and shone beneath the billowy bay.

It does run on for many more stanzas, and if you really want to read the rest, it is here.

And here's an odd little one:

Another Dead Mosquito

A little mosquito once sat on my arm,
her evil intent was to cause me some harm.
To stick in her proboscis and suck up my blood,
leaving behind a sore itch I must rub.
I think its quite mean doing something like that....

So I raised my right hand and I swatted her flat.

Opilione the Harvestman part only

The harvestman, she's not a spider,
she has no poison glands inside her.
No fangs, no web, no spinnerets.
She really makes a lovely pet.

You can keep her in an ice-cream box,
with dirt and leaves, and a few rocks.
One other thing you must include
are smaller bugs, they are her food.

Well, I profooundly apologize for using your NEWS story as BS Fodder. I thought it would surely bring a bit of leonine repartee, that was the mane idea.

Odd is right!! Is this a Bulgarian writing English or some kind of expat? I like this ditty:

Turn back, turn back and live again,
give not your victory to the pain.
Life's a potential, you must choose,
you either win, or else you lose.

And if you lose, then be forgiving,
you still can learn the ways of living.
Like Phoenix, rise up from your tears.
You've joy to find in future years.

Born on a mountain top in Tennessee,

Greenest state in the land of the free.

Raised in the woods so he knew every tree

Killed him a "bar" when he was only three.

The next thing you know Old Jed's a millionaire

Kin folk said "Jed, Move away from there!"

Said "Californey is the place you ought to be"

Killed him a bear when he was only three

The moon it shown down on old Dublin Town
When the rowdy night was o'er.
Thousands lay on the cold, cold ground
Their bodies could hold no more,
The moon it shown down on O'Connell Street
Where a drunken young tosspot lay
With his wineskin slashed and his arms outstretched
And his Black Bush flowin' away.

A passing comrade heard the moans,
The sufferer soon was found.
Softly, gently he raised his head
Up from the cold, cold ground.
"Softly, gently, Comrade!" he cried,
"No longer on Earth can I stay
I shall nevermore drink as I drank last night,
For it's married I'm gettin' today."

His comrades gathered around him
To give him a fare-the-well;
He was as drinkin' and rowdy man
As ever to womankind fell,
They dug a grave and in it they laid
The youth of a fellow once gay*;
He will nevermore drink as he drank last night,
For it's married he's gettin' today.




*Not "gay", but given to drinking and carousing.

And the moon was shining brightly
Shining with all its might
Which as it was near midnight's hour
Was only just, and right.

The sun was pouting elsewhere,
As usual, with the sun,
Blaming the moon for coming out
And damping down his fun.

But Sarah cared nought for the sky,
Such cares she did defer;
But danced so joyously that I
Had only eyes for her.

There once was a troop
Of Irish baboons
Came bumbling down to Fyfe-e-o
And our captain
(that's me!) fell in love
With a very bonny lass
And her name it was called Pretty Polly-O.

(Chorus)
O Polly, pretty Polly, come away with me,
O Polly, pretty Polly, come away with me,
Before we get married some pleasure to see, YEE-HA!

Oh, how can I get to your chamber, love,
How can I get to your bed
When your daddy goes to bed at night
With a keen eye on his head?

(Chorus)
Eileen Orr, me heart is turning gray
Ever since the day you wandered far away.
Eileen Orr, There's more fish in the sea,
But there's none just like the Pride of Petrovar, YEE-HA!

In the middle of the track, up spoke the noble rider,
"I fear we must fall back that grey is runnin' like a tiger."
Up spoke the noble horse, "Ride on, ride on my master!
We're only halfway 'round the course and now we'll see who's faster."

(Chorus)
An' ye had been whaur I hae been
Ye wadna been sae cantie-o
An' ye had seen what I hae seen
On the braes o' Killiecrankie-o, YEE-HA!

From Derry's wild woodlands from Maine's sounding tide
From Leitrim and Longford came chiefs to our side
From Breffni's green hills, with his sabre in hand
Stood bold Myles the slasher, the pride of our land!

Lint-a-naddy, tour-a-naddy, lint-a-naddy, tour-a-nee
Lint-in-lowrin, lowrin, lowrin, the barnyards of Delgaty, YEE-HA!

MICROBES CAN PRODUCE ELECTRICAL NANOWIRES, June 23

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have discovered a tiny biological structure that is highly electrically conductive. This breakthrough helps describe how microorganisms can clean up groundwater and produce electricity from renewable resources. It may also have applications in the emerging field of nanotechnology, which develops advanced materials and devices in extremely small dimensions.

Maybe Gluon would like to come visit with my wunderdawg in that buggy back yard. She needs to burn some energy and it sounds like Gluon can convert it if anyone can. Visualize a twin-bed sized dacron comforter. With much of the stuffing now removed, a bite at a time, by a bored dog. Got that? It looks like Santa was mugged back here, whiskers everywhere. Now imagine the canine gets the idea she's Gluon, and can fly. Every flying dog needs a cape, right? The comforter has been downsized enough over the past weeks that when she charges through the yard it streams behind her as she races across the lawn, dodging trees, the birdbath, and strafing a couple of shrubs. It is a sight to behold! Gluon would love it here. The invitation is always open (daylight hours only, please).

n research published in today's issue of the scientific journal Physical Review Letters, Scott Crooker and Darryl Smith describe their use of a scanning optical microscope to acquire two-dimensional images of spin-polarized electrons flowing in semiconductor crystals mounted on an optical cryostat while using a miniature "cryogenic vise" to apply gentle pressure. By squeezing the crystal in a controlled manner, and without applying magnetic fields, the researchers were able to watch the electron spins rotate (or precess) as they flow through the crystal.

According to Crooker, "electrons, in addition to their negative electronic charge, also possess a magnetic "spin". That is, each electron behaves like a little bar magnet, with north and south poles. Electron spins in semiconductors are typically manipulated by applying a magnetic field, but we've found we can do the same thing, in a controlled fashion, using the "vise". And, the resulting degree of spatial spin coherence is remarkably more robust compared to the spin precession induced by a magnetic field."

Also,

A team of chemists at Penn State has developed a new type of ultrathin film, which has unusual properties that could improve the fabrication of increasingly smaller and more intricate electronic and sensing devices. The material, a single layer made from spherical cages of carbon atoms, could enable more precise patterning of such devices with a wider range of molecular components than now is possible with conventional self-assembled monolayers. The research is published in the current issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.




I tell ya, these molecular engineers are the dawning of a whole new array of fine technological solutions (ultimately breeding their own problems). By the time Gluon is my age, his poop will be disassembled with the trash by molecular machines who will recycle the component molecules into containers for re-sale to manufacturers. Any Nigerian farmer who needs water will grab it from the wind, using energy grabbed from the sun. We just might survive a couple of these current crises if we keep this up!
