AS IF…

September 21st, 2014

This internal thread concerning events in and about Ferguson, Missouri, is stuck to the top of the blog, newer, less vital, posts appear below. Meanwhile, comments on PZ Myers’ Good Morning, America now exceed 1,600… Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government […]

NOW IF OUR CEOS HAD THIS ATTITUDE…

September 20th, 2014

Earlier today I addressed the media and through them the Australian public about ongoing investigations into a group of officers and NCOs whose conduct if proven has not only brought the Australian army into disrepute, but has let down every one of you, and all of those whose past service has won the respect of […]

DEBUNKING DAVID BARTON’S LIES…

September 20th, 2014

—From Chris Rodda, author of Debunking David Barton’s Jefferson Lies. Prior to about a week ago I knew nothing of David Barton other than he was one of the religious wrong and influential in tea-bagger circles. I’ve since begun to educate myself because of Barton’s visit to my hometown. What makes Barton so hard to […]

OUR MOST TERRIFYING WORD: OOPS…!

September 13th, 2014

As an enlisted man in the United States Navy I was directly responsible for the care of eight tactical nuclear missiles. I don’t know how the Air Force handles the mission, but I do know that any of the actions that Oliver mentions would have gotten me expelled from the program in a heart beat. […]

FOR MY DAD ON HIS 85TH BIRTHDAY…

September 8th, 2014

Today is the 85th anniversary of my father’s birth to Carroll Dean and Anita Ray Hess in Fairmont, West Virginia. Several years ago my dad shared an episode of Deep Space Nine with me (which I blogged about, but for the life of me I can’t find the post this morning) featuring father and son […]

GEORGE CARLIN WAS RIGHT (AGAIN)…

September 4th, 2014

I have worked, and continue to work, with a number of students suffering from a wide range debilitating, and often deadly, allergies. Over the years I have asked the question: why so many children now? In conversations I have suggested, admittedly with tongue a bit in cheek, that George Carlin’s thesis, that we don’t work […]

Arguably the funniest scene from the series. The John Larroquette Show promised to be just as funny, if not funnier, until the writers decided to go mainstream and ruined the show.

CUTE HACKING CAT VIDEOS…

August 16th, 2014

Many otherwise well-informed people think they have to do something wrong, or stupid, or insecure to get hacked—like clicking on the wrong attachments, or browsing malicious websites. People also think that the NSA and its international partners are the only ones who have turned the internet into a militarized zone. But according to research I […]
