Penicillin was "discovered" by Alexander (not Ian) Fleming in 1928. Purification was needed, and clinical trials in 1942 demonstrated Penicillin's potential. The US managed to produce 2.3 million doses in time for the Normandy Invasion. There were some scientific awards because of this research....

INdeed. I am talking about that WW2 development, starting from scraping mold supplies out of old milk bottles and gearing up to government-scale production starting shortly after Pearl Harbor.

You're both wrong. Penicillin was discovered in 1811 by an African Chimpanzee named Wongo. He was a distant relative of Chongo. Wongo discovered penicillin while trying to find tasty bugs in hollow logs. After diligent investigation he decided that penicillin, while interesting in its own right, was pretty much useless to Chimpanzees. He made some brief notes in his journal about it and pursued the matter no further.

Yes, Wongago was in fact his full name, but to his friends he was known simply as "Wongo".

You spend your life trying to sort out the truth. You mine the richness of human endeavours throughou thistory, the ancient and the new. You are diligent. You memorize Dewey categories and binary systems of classification. You master EXchangeable Faceted Metadata Language, Faceted classification, Freinet classification, Functional Requirements for Authority Data and 100 more schemas seeking to embrace all the world's collected knowledge with its provenance, its authorities, its cross-references, it factyness. And WHAT HAPPENS??? A buncha Yahoos come along and create Infinitely Renewably Universes of Fictitious Realities (IRUOFR) and the whole lifetime of effort is just laid waste, just like that. It's like Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam suddenly being in charge of the AEC or the TVA. It's ORFUL, is what.

The complete man recognizes the whirlpool of being around him and embraces it for what it is; the incomplete man looks at it and structures it out of existence by saying, "I have information."

It appears new light has been shed on the retirement of Bookman--a change in faith, a crisis of Doubte, and a terrible undermining of the deep certain solace of Information Science. Ah, sic transit gloria et certitudine mundi!!

Sorry for being so nasty Mum. Having a bad day. A very bad day.

And if anyone asks why, fuck off.

I think that's clear enough... bad day... that's all... tomorrow is another day.

Time to lay my head down and see if it stops... gnight gnu.

And for the lowly beasts that Rapp dropped on Eiseley's table. This is most brutal.

Bloody damned things! Attacked me, they did. Ravening, they play with their prey, ripping it shreds and tossing the parts around like soccer balls before finally devouring it in a mad frenzy of blood and gore.

Had to shoot a couple more than once, too. One I shot vanished entirely. Thought Eiseley could have them mounted for her den, y'know. Go well there, with the rug made from the skin of the bear she strangled a few months back.

Eiseley: Have you finally gone over the edge and shot up Rapp's balls? I know it has been tempting for a long while now, but I never imagined you would give in to the impulse.

Ah, well, you can always ship the remnants to Goodwill. 'S about all they're good for anymore, I suppose.

How doth the little bumble bee
Improve each shining hour...
And gather honey all the day

Oh, Bookman, oh Bookman, oh Bold Rapparree!
As concerns your landscaping, take warning from me!
You've hired and paid them, their work is near done,
And the schedules and progress reports have been fun.
The speed of their turn out was often quite short,
But your hand at the tiller their schemes did abort,
You harassed and scolded and chided, until
Every modified specification was filled!
But Sir let me tell you, now that all that is done,
Your garden will grow by the clock of the Sun
By moon-phase and calendar seasons will grow
ANd its pacing will be agonisingly slow.
Prepare for the loss of excitement and thrill
As you wait out responses from each daffodil.
The work that you paid for on time and in dough
Will progress so slowly you'll reel from the blow.
To admire a garden takes the pulse of a saint,
And though you may be many things,
That's one thing you ain't!!

Oh Amos, friend Amos, 'tis true what you writ
But beneath all that mulch is a ton of cow shit
Composted, sterilized, deodorized, clean
Enough to eat on top of ice cream.
But the nutrients left for the plants are immense
And the plants themselves were grown into Ents
And stomped, each to its place in the yard,
I'm afraid to go out there -- to die would be hard.
And I leave now no legacy, no bank account full,
For it's all been spent on the plants and the bull....

A friend posted this on her facebook page:

A man went to Europe for two months and left his beloved and prized cat with his brother and mother who shared a home. After a week or so, he called home to see how everything was going. "Well," his brother told him, "the cat took a header off the roof and died." "Oh, NO!!!" cried the man! "I'm devastated! And how could you deliver the news in such a cavalier fashion! That cat was like family to me!" "The cat's DEAD, for heaven's sake! What did you WANT me to tell you?" asked the brother. "Well, you could have told me that the cat is on the roof and you can't get him down. Then, when I called next time, you could have said that the fire department was there with a ladder but the cat was eluding them. When I next called you could have said that the cat jumped off the roof and had been taken to the vet where he was in surgery. Finally, when I had been prepared by all the previous calls for potential disaster, you could have told me that he didn't make it out of surgery. All of this would have let me get more prepared for the tragic outcome." "Ok," his brother said. "I get it." A few weeks later, the man called home again, he inquired as to how everyone was doing. "Well," replied his brother, "Mama's on the roof and we can't get her down."
