Knowledge is Stupid

Today a lazy St. Monday holiday I idled on internet. I learned:

The Alantic Coastal plain is riddled with large ovoid craters too shallow to be extraterrestrial, but not to be 'ejecta', the stuff flung from volcanoids. And the source is ....Lake Michigan???

The rest of the world is also full of the evidence of holocaustics.

The Lake Toba caldero that blew 75K Y BP and utterly ruined southeast Asia was the biggest one during the last 25 million years, I feel comforted we're past that. It buried India in 6 inches of ash.

Eastern England may have been occupied by a Germanic speaking people before the Romans arrived. There not unassailable evidence of it being Brythonic speaking which has been the received wisdom.

The so-called rules in English against dangling prepositions and split infinitives traced back to class-based prudery and are the tools of the oppressor.

Air France 447 which disappeared over the Atlantic this year may have been the victim of a meteor blowing up in the upper atmosphere, like the huge explosion at Tunguska in 1908, which a mere 100 years ago leveled an area the size of Tokyo.

Myles Standish led a Plymouth force in 1628 to disperse Merry Mount colony in Quincy which had a maypole, and supposedly bachannial practices.

Obama's emoticonograms' chilling prescience; Biden Consigliere not Shogun

So given the choice between VP and S of S, Biden took the warm bucket of piss which Cheney left glowing toxic; Obama needs no one to prop him up, so Biden learn from Gore.  

Biden says his pillow talk will be in Obama's dreams as he tucks in him.

But watch out, Obama is under a lot pressure having to quit smoking.  People I talk to generally wish he would just take his Rose Garden smoke break if that helps deal with a 100-year-flood economic crisis in full swing.  

Looks like using Hope as a rallying theme may turn out to be astutely prescient, although when it was first deployed, accessorized by banners, due to the then-prevalent delusion of prosperity based on oceans of bad credit risk, it was still more of an attitude than a dire necessity, still more of an emoticonogram like "green" or "balanced", than The Word.

If 2008 was arguably 1929, can we yet say 2009 looks like 1930?  What does 2012 look like if you do the math?   It's global, so we should expect a shake-out of shaky governments.  Countries bullfrogged out by the over-stated prosperity will lose air.

Obama's globalized family

He is a black Hawaiian with an Asian sister married to a Malaysian Canadian, a Muslim English brother, a sister with a PhD from the University of Bayreuth, a pianist brother in China and a Chinese national sister-in-law, a brother in a tin shack, his wife's cousin is a rabbi, and his mother's name was Stanley, and she had a Phd in cultural anthropology

What's not to love?

USAir 1549 -The Anti-911

Like a sign of the end of the Bush era, a doomed plane following the same path down the Hudson that flight AA 11 took on 9/11/01 lands in water and all survive, instead of fire and death.

For those who believe in signs, consider that.

Solar Power is from Mars

The Martian Rovers have been running on solar power for 5 years, twice as far from the sun as this place, and yet we have no solar powered vehicles on earth?
