Before Algore won the Nobel Prize...

He spent much time studying his 3 30" Apple displays. *sigh*

Why Reagan Would Still Reject the Law of the Sea Treaty

This is a good read.

It's also important because the LOST has been voted out of its assigned Senate subcommittee. :^( Appropriately, it seems to have been done on Halloween. )^:

Contact your Senators today.

More good news about capsaicin

If it didn't already cure your prostate cancer, or you avoided it and developed prostate cancer, it may speed your recovery. :^)

Hot stuff: good for you.

The toughest presidential endorsement of the race:

Chuck Norris comes out for Mike Huckabee

(If you like Huckabee, but think that he doesn't have a chance, it's probably because you haven't been an active supporter... Can you spare $20 or so?)

It's not going to die any time soon,

but maybe we can put it back in its coffin...

From the Home School Legal Defense Association
Congress is poised to consider a bill that would forbid employers from refusing to hire people based on their “sexual orientation.”

The U.S. House Education and Labor Committee will hold a committee markup for H.R. 3685, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act of 2007 (ENDA)[It's what won't quite die!!], Tuesday, October 2, at 10 a.m. A markup is where the committee discusses the bill and then votes whether or not to send it to the full House of Representatives.

If you don't want to worry more about the character of those your church or private school is allowed to hire.

They have links to use for action/communication with your Washingcritters.

They used "all-purpose gray tape"...

to fix the Int'l Space Station (ISS).
"They also decided to rig a thermal barrier out of a surplus reference book and all-purpose gray tape."
That would be "duct tape," wouldn't it?

Don't leave Earth without it. :^)

So, it's happened again...

This time, it's Al Gore getting a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on "Global Warming." It's being shared with the UN IPCC committee (Is that redundant?).

The last time that this has been tried was when the Nobel Committee gave researchers a prize for claiming that CFCs were destroying ozone.

It's an argument from imputed strength. An illustrious organization agrees with someone, so they must be right.

I mean Al Gore must be right -- after all, the Nobel Prize isn't political, right? CFCs must destroy ozone, the Nobel Prize Committee knows their stuff, don't they?

Bah. They're a bunch of isolated, aristocratic, Lefties and commies. (He says having done no specific research. ;^)

Another use for "Stoly"

It's Biblical, too!

Our President (Bush) is deluded.

But, then, so was I -- when I was in high school.

Perhaps now that he's nearing retirement age, he'll do some serious Bible study or listen to some serious teaching.

The nut of the article is that the President has stated that Christians, Jews, and Mohammedans all worship the same god.
Well, first of all, I believe in an Almighty God, and I believe that all the world, whether they be Muslim, Christian, or any other religion, prays to the same God. That's what I believe. I believe that Islam is a great religion that preaches peace.

Shall we call Him "Allah?"

Something interesting from the University of Michigan

U-M research: New plastic is strong as steel, transparent

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—By mimicking a brick-and-mortar molecular structure found in seashells, University of Michigan researchers created a composite plastic that's as strong as steel but lighter and transparent.

It's made of layers of clay nanosheets and a water-soluble polymer that shares chemistry with white glue. . .

The University of Michigan College of Engineering, which is ranked among the top engineering schools in the country. Michigan Engineering boasts one of the largest engineering research budgets of any public university, at more than $130 million. . .

The Tyson Index

If you remember the young Mike Tyson - who didn't have time to get in trouble - you might like this statistical way to rank the level of excitement available in a match between fighters.

The reason that I'm considering buying more AAPL stock even though it's over $150...

More Mac users pay to upgrade their software.

That fact contributes toward making the Mac platform far more valuable than Windows; despite having only 3% market share of the entire world’s production of PCs, Apple makes more money on hardware sales than Dell with its 15% share of the market, and--after including Microsoft’s tremendous losses from its non-monopoly businesses--made half as much money in software as Microsoft did with its 98% share. Windows Enthusiast prefer not to think about this.

'nuf said.

Marriage as an institution is recovering...

The nut of the situation is that fewer people are getting married, but those that are will be more likely to stay married. :^)
