Instead of all this concept-coshing,
You, who do not, might take up washing.
'T would palliate your social fears,
And mayhap open up your ears
And this -- if you should take the trouble --
Your language skills might soon redouble
Your mind would stride, instead of hobble,
Cruise instead of stall and bobble
(Assuming that said mind is fillable)
When you can hear more than one syllable!

Gundersen Dammegud Ferjia

As for houses in the suburbs, you could do a LOT worse, I would mention, than to have one. I do, and it is a source of great pleasure to me. I mean if you HAVE to have shelter in this bloody universe, why not have one that suits your needs and is full of your favorite tools and toys? They are useful for raising yonkers in, handy for bringing more than one visitor together at a time for lively conversations, useful for storing food, bedding, books, films, informational libraries, and toiletries in, convenient to hand, and for providing a safe and comfortable resource for spending the nights enjoyably.

I would never deign to live in the suburbs. The suburbs are for milquetoasts and couch potatoes. I live at the edge of the Canadian wilderness, in an environment filled with the heady scent of danger and sudden death. I carry a loaded gun and a Bowie knife out with me when I put out the garbage. I chew on grass stems and pick my teeth with pine splinters. I wrassle bears bare-handed and laugh at death.

I know Rapaire can relate to this... ;-)

It's what he secretly dreams of, Amos. He can hardly bear the ignominy of not being a Yank, a citizen of the greatest country on Earth, like Clint Eastwood and Arnold Schwarzennegger. He hates the fact that I am a naturalized American citizen, and that I live in Chicago, the greatest burg in the world. He's green with envy.

I am glad to hear that is the cause of the condition, Mistuh Chongo, as it is curable, especially in one so attuned to spiritual matters. I was afraid he might have had a secret addiction to broccoli.

In other news:


Many chemotherapy drugs work by interfering with the cell-division cycle. The drugs reach healthy cells and cancer cells alike, but they do most of their damage to the cancer cells. Unfortunately, some types of healthy cells divide as rapidly as cancer cells and are badly damaged as well. Such cells are found in bone marrow, the lining of the digestive tract, and hair follicles, so chemotherapy patients often lose their hair and are susceptible to infection. The damage to healthy cells limits the drug dose that a patient can tolerate and therefore limits the treatment's effectiveness.

Yoram Palti, of the Technion?Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, and his colleagues have demonstrated another way to disrupt cell division: alternating electric fields with intensities of just 1?2 V/cm. The fields they use, with frequencies in the hundreds of kilohertz, were previously thought to do nothing significant to living cells other than heating them. But Palti and colleagues have conducted a small clinical trial showing that the fields have an effect in slowing the growth of tumors.1

In studies of tumor cells in vitro, Palti and colleagues observed two distinct effects, both of which depend on the direction of cell division with respect to the applied field.2 First, they found that cells in the electric field take longer than usual to divide, as shown in figure 1a. Second, they found that dividing cells sometimes disintegrate just before the division process is complete, as shown in figure 1, panels b and c. They offer an explanation for each effect.

The researchers suggest that cell division is slowed because the electric field hinders the formation and function of the mitotic spindle, the structure that guides the newly replicated chromosomes as they separate into the two daughter cells. The mitotic spindle is made up of microtubules, formed by the polymerization of dimers of the protein tubulin. (Microtubules and other cellular structures are illustrated in PHYSICS TODAY, September 2006, page 80.)

The tubulin dimers and polymers have large dipole moments, so they are affected by the electric field. But most other biochemical processes also involve polar molecules and structures, and small oscillating electric forces don't appear to have much of an effect on them. The difference, says Palti, is that when the tubulin dimers assemble into the mitotic spindle, they all line up in the same direction. If that direction happens to be orthogonal to the direction of the electric field, the microtubules are less likely to function normally.


This is interesting, and good news. It means Royal Rife was essentially right.

Hell, sonny-boy, when I took out the trash last Friday I had to fight two grizzlies and a mountain lion before I could get it to the street! Fight 'em with nothin' but a used toothpick, my fingernails, and pair of twin .458 revolvers, a sawed-off ten gauge, and a machete in each hand.

Even then I barely made it back alive.

Nail-Teeth Ned picked a fight with me up at the Legion Hovel 'tother night, LH. Neddy was thought to be the meanest, dirtiest-fighting, guy in these parts. Used to bite ears off his opponents, chew them up, and spit them back into the guy's face. He collected noses that he'd pulled off. His body odor was such that he lived at the dump and kept it free of rats and flies; his hair was so greasy bedbugs used it for a ski jump. Every now and then he'd eat a boulder "ta keep ma breth fresh" as he so quaintly put it.

Anyway, he started in about lace doilies, and then he tried to "muckle into" me.

I laid him out with one punch and shoved his feet so far down his throat that he disappeared completely.

Today an awful lot of overdue books were returned....

Amos, you messed up Mom's front page with all of that unwrapped text a few messages back! What were you thinking?


    Many chemotherapy drugs work by interfering with the cell-division cycle. The drugs reach healthy cells and cancer cells alike, but they do most of their damage to the cancer cells. Unfortunately, some types of healthy cells divide as rapidly as cancer cells and are badly damaged as well. Such cells are found in bone marrow, the lining of the digestive tract, and hair follicles, so chemotherapy patients often lose their hair and are susceptible to infection. The damage to healthy cells limits the drug dose that a patient can tolerate and therefore limits the treatment's effectiveness.

    Yoram Palti, of the Technion?Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, and his colleagues have demonstrated another way to disrupt cell division: alternating electric fields with intensities of just 1?2 V/cm. The fields they use, with frequencies in the hundreds of kilohertz, were previously thought to do nothing significant to living cells other than heating them. But Palti and colleagues have conducted a small clinical trial showing that the fields have an effect in slowing the growth of tumors.1

    In studies of tumor cells in vitro, Palti and colleagues observed two distinct effects, both of which depend on the direction of cell division with respect to the applied field.2 First, they found that cells in the electric field take longer than usual to divide, as shown in figure 1a. Second, they found that dividing cells sometimes disintegrate just before the division process is complete, as shown in figure 1, panels b and c. They offer an explanation for each effect.

If that direction happens to be orthogonal to the direction of the electric field, the microtubules are less likely to function normally.

I've been growing my hair longer also, but it's on my neck and driving me nuts, so I'm going back to a look a couple of inches shorter. My hairdresser died six weeks ago and we were working on a new style. Now that his vision is gone (and I found someone who used to work with him, but she's less experienced) I'll go back to an earlier look I liked.

No dachshunds were harmed in my haircut, however.

Look, a god doesn't HAVE to walk up the stairs! Specially not on one of those steep Mayan or Aztec pyramids. Perish the thought. A dog that is a god gets CARRIED up the stairs on a palanquin by his adoring devotees. He rests serenely at the top, indicating by the twitch of an ear or an eyebrow who shall be sacrificed next. He yawns prodigiously, stretches, and watches approvingly as the unworthy die hideously and their heads and headless torsos are thrown down the stairs to the cheering mob below...

At least that's the way my dog imagines it.

I believe there is a germane body of mythological referent in the Norse tradition, which raises interesting issues of common ancestorhood. The Scandinavian legends speak of Langer Dünnerhund who is variously presented as a half-man half-god, or as a full-god who occasionally shows up in man's form, typically surprising poor families by sitting down at their dinner tables unexpectedly.

One of the stories about this mythic figure involves his falling in love with a mortal maiden of great beauty, as beautiful as any sunrise, and coming down the golden stairs from Asgard to capture her from her poor family and abscond with her to a big party in Valhalla. Her beauty was so overpowering, however, that Langer Dünnerhund began to experience enormous priapism while seeking to make good his escape up the golden staircase back to Asgard. This affectation so encumbered his progress that the damsel was able to wrest herself free from his grip and escape back to her parent's lowly hut on the farm (a decision she regretted for the rest of her life).

Some archeologists believe that the stone paintings of Kokipelli which are often associated with what many believe to be lighning bolts are actually being misread. The "lightning" these forward thinkers believe, is actually a representation of stairsteps - and "kokipelli" (usually portrayed with a huge erection) is a corruption of "caught on belly" - obviosuly a euphimism.
