Gosh all whiskers, Mom! Whatever are the others doing, leaving you to sink slowly, only hours away from the oblivion of sin and degradation? Not even a cheerful "Good Morning! The bluebird of happiness has perched upon your windowsill and left a little gift behind just for you!"

Some of us need coffee before we can be pleasant in the morning. You wouldn't want us snarling at MOM would you?

which is why I didn't post earlier.

Have a possible gig next month and trying to decide what songs to steal learn "new" for it. It's a pagan/pirate/ren-faire genre...leaves a lot of stuff open...

Grace O'Malley was a vestal virgin,
'till Ol' Priapus sent an urgin'
Through my loins and mainmast surgin'
and we docked in Galway bay.

I've read that the "pronblem" to which SRS alludes is not due to a need to urinate, but due to dreaming. It's not necessary for a dream to have sexual content for it to produce male arousal, any dream will do. Makes sense to me. After all, dreaming is a function of the brain, and all women know where the male brain is located.

Besides, even if the problem goes away, the solution is incessantly present, around on every hand, in every byway; and by its very presence, renews the problem to which it is the resolution. Thus the burden of the man half of mankind. Sigh. It ain't easy....

Bush Hides U.S. Report Card In Sock Drawer
February 14, 2006 | Issue 42?07

CRAWFORD, TX?According to White House sources, following yet another disappointing grading period for the nation he leads, President Bush hid the national report card in his bedroom sock drawer Monday. "We, as a nation, got a D in international relations, a D in economics, and an F in military history," Bush reportedly said. "We must work hard to make sure no one finds out about this." Critics say the report-card-hiding effort is immature, and point out that the sock drawer is the first place The New York Times will look.

Fermilab may be close to finding Higgs particles (Higgs boson) and the Higgs field:

In the GWS model, the spontaneous breakdown is brought about the introduction of an elementary scalar field. This leads to the prediction of (at least) an additional spin-zero particle, the Higgs boson. With the discovery of the W and Z0 bosons at the CERN pp collider, and the top quark at the FERMILAB, only the Higgs boson
remains to be discovered to complete the particle content of the GWS electroweak theory. It should be pointed out that no elementary spin-zero particles have ever been found. In fact, the ad hoc introduction of these considered by many theorists to be an
unpleasant feature of the standard model.

The problem is the instability of the scalar particles masses under radiative corrections. For example, one-loop radiative corrections to these diverge quadratically, leading to corrections of the form:

δm2 = O(α/π)2

where is a cut-off parameter representing the scale of the theory and

α = e2/hc
≈ 1

is the fine structure constant. The parameter may be the Grand Unified Theory (GUT) scale O(1015GeV/c2), or the Plank scale O(1019GeV/c2) if we believe there is no new physics all the way up to the scale associated with quantum gravity. On the other hand, we know that for the scalar self-couplings to be sensibly treated within perturbation theory, the scalar mass

m2 6 O(m2
W/α) ∼ 1TeV/c2

In other words, either the Higgs sector is strongly interacting, or δm2 ≫,m2.

Such theories (where δm2 ≫,m2) have been technically referred to as
"unnatural", because the parameters have to be tuned with unusual precision in order to preserve the lightness of the Higgs mass compared to the GUT scale ?O(1TeV/c2).

One possible solution to the problem of naturalness is to imagine that the quarks, leptons and gauge bosons are all composites with associated scale ?O(1TeV/c2). While these solve the problem at present energies, it does not really represent a solution as we could ask the same questions of any underlying theory. Moreover, it would be difficult to understand why the gauge principle seems to work so well at least up to this point.

Well, heck! Standard models are always loaded with unpleasant features, aren't they? If you want pleasant features you have to pay more money and get the deluxe model. Doesn't matter whether its a GUT or a SUV, the same principle applies.

well - the standard model in most magazines or fashion shows are not normally associated with unpleasant features. Unlike a standard elephant, which may or may not be to a person's taste, a standard model is normally selected to appeal to the broadest possible range - and thus unpleasantness is detrimental.

Yes. The hole thing was originally intended to work like a tin whistle, with thousands of well-beaned Bostonians at one end to provide the, ah, air and others along the route to open and close various sewer and other access lids to the tunnel to create the notes.

The intent was to create the world's greatest rendition of "Muskrat Love" but the designers failed to take the Clean Air Laws into consideration and the project was cancelled by pinko liberal tree-huggers from the UN-dominated Northeast.

You might want to look into using that big tunnel in Texas in this way. I'll betcha TEXAS wouldn't stop the project, especially if you were going play "The Yellow Rose Of Texas"!!

The reason the enviromentalist lobby had it cancelled wasn't what you think. Oh no....


Th real reason was the sounds generated by such a system would only be detected by seismographs, and by whales. Now, as we all know, Enviromentalists love whales, and so listened to the ceteans complaints, which can be paraphrased down to 'Would you mind tuning that thing properly? It's bad enough played at that volume well, let alone how 'spaw does'

Of course, the only two methods available to fix the tuning were to fire all 19,000 federal employees working on the project and hire competent staff, or to rebore it in a different rock formation. Unfortunatley, the federal employes all turned out to live in a very marginal congressional district, and the only suitable rock formation was in the state of a senior senator, who objected to the vast investment that the project would bring, quoting the example of Jericho as to waht happens if you let some bright young man loose with a very big trumpet, and he wouldn't be having any of that in his state.

I think Rapaire is onto something there for the Texas Tunnel. It would restore the state's mythological claim on the biggest of all things. Imagine a penny-whistle miles and miles long. At frequecies that low, you could probably govern the mood in Washington by playing dirges or jigs according to your dark ulterior schemes on any given day.

Hi, kids! Ya know what? I don't know of a single swear word or gross anatomical/physiological reference that begins with the letter "E". Sure, there are clinical terms like "evacuation" and "ejaculate", but there's nothing on a par with "shit", or "jizm". And there are mild oaths like "Egads!" but nothing to compare with "Goddammit!" As far as I know, there's no word starting with "E" that you can't legally say on the radio. Can you think of any? It has to be a "real" word. Made up combinations like "eel shit" don't count.

I have been advised (by a source who wishes to remain anonymous) that there are some "words" used in the UK, beginning with "E", which one would probably not wish to use in the presence of one's Aunt Florence. The one which struck me as being the most likely candidate for discussion here, since it does enjoy usage in the US as well, is "effing".

"Effing" is, of course, derived from the letter "F" , the first letter in "fuck", and is merely a way of saying "fucking" without actually saying "fucking". The question is: "Since the root of 'effing' is the letter 'f', does it qualify as an actual word beginning with 'e' or does it, for all practical purposes, begin with 'f'?"

If we allow "effing", will we then be required th allow the "ess" in "SOB" (abbreviation for 'son of a bitch')? When we say 'SOB' we don't pronounce it 'sob', as in "boo-hoo", but spell it out as 'ess-oh-bee'. And if we allow that, then would we be expected to allow any word beginning with a letter whose own spelling begins with an "E"? Think about it: Parents are always spelling out "ess-aitch-eye-tee" or "em-oh-tee-aitch-ee-ar-ef-you-cee-kay".

Where would it all end?

I can't come up with anything more than a well-punctuated "Eeeewwwwwwww!," as Amos suggested. Articulated correctly, that can be a powerful expletive. Think, for example, of a woman deciding that tonight is the night to finally do it with the boyfriend. . . and then read all of the possible reactions to the remark "Eeeewwwwwwww!" when she sees him nude.

He probably finds that to be as obscene a remark as he could imagine. I imagine.
