Dream a Little Dream of Me.

Salvador Cordova Takes a Crap. Again.

Blogging on Pseudo-Scientific Douche-BagsFile this under Sunday Morning Funnies.

I occasionally surf the blogs of pseudo-scientific douche-bags when I’m bored and need a little humor. It’s cheaper than buying a newspaper, and often provides much more entertainment. Once I wade through the usual quotemines, ad hominem attacks, deliberate obfuscations, and outright lies, there’s usually some pretty funny stuff that naturally evolves from a creationist attempting to twist history, science, and reality in general.

This morning was such a morning so as I’m sipping my first cup o’ joe, I begin the trek. I want to make some headway on my novel today, so to make it quick I go right to the perennial golden-tard mine that is Young Cosmos. You might remember its proprietor, Salvador Cordova, Asshole of the Year.Sal takes his temperature rectally.

Slimy Sal does not disappoint.

This morning’s headline?

618 Synagogue’s of Satan honor Darwin on Evolution Sunday

Setting aside his egregious abuse of an innocent apostrophe, it’s quite the little piece of crap.

Right off the bat, we get this lovely little bit, below the fold:

HA! The Terrorists Missed Me Again!

Scum-sucking terrorists have now missed me for the third straight year.

I was on holiday in London in July of 2005.  I was there the week of the second attempted bombings, but was on a day trip to Windsor Castle, Bath, and Stonehenge the day they executed their fiendish plot.

They were very smart that time.  They lulled me into a false sense of security by setting off the bombs on July 7.  Although I briefly considered canceling my holiday, I figured that immediately following those attacks, London would probably be the safest city in the world.  Fortunately, the second bunch of whackos was incompetent.

My second trip to London was scheduled for August of last year, and fortunately the boys at The Yard busted the whackos before they could put their plot to kill me in motion.  That time, they were going to sneak some liquid stuff on board my plane and mix them together in order to blow me up.

BIG OL KISSES TO THE BRITS WHO WERE LOOKING OUT FOR ME!  I LOVE YOU GUYS, TOO!

This time I tricked the nutjobs completely.  I’m not going to London this year, I’m too poor.  But they were ready, just in case I snuck over.

But the London law enforcement boys were watching them watching me.

From CNN:

LONDON, England (CNN) — Police in London say they have deactivated a bomb capable of creating huge casualties, raising renewed fears of a terrorist strike almost two years after the city was hit by deadly suicide bombers.

The device, consisting of 200 liters of fuel, gas cylinders and nails linked to a triggering mechanism, was found in a car in Haymarket, in the city’s busy nightclub and theater district shortly before 2 a.m. (0100 GMT) on Friday.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, appointed just two days earlier in a transition of power seen as a potential spur for extremists to mount an attack, said the incident was a reminder of the dangers facing the country.

Brown, whose predecessor Tony Blair’s support for the war stoked anger among Islamic militants, said Britain faces “a serious and continuous threat” and the public “need to be alert” at all times.

The incident comes close to the second anniversary of July 7, 2005, when four Islamic extremist suicide bombers killed 52 people on London’s transport system in the deadliest strike on the city since World War II.

British anti-terror chief Peter Clarke said the explosives would have resulted in significant injury and loss of life had the explosives detonated.

You’ll notice that CNN never once even mentions my name anywhere in the article.  Those guys are so good to be concerned about my privacy, but really, it’s not necessary.

More kisses for all of British law enforcement, who does such a fine job looking out for my safety from the evil freaks with bombs.  I really do love you gals and guys.

One Year Later – Day One Pics

There really isn’t any good, quick way for me to organize these, so I’m just going to post the best of our pics in the order we took them.

This is the Wellington Arch, for a comparison from last year. The weather was very fickle this year. It never really got very warm, but it was sunny and comfortable, then cloudy, then pouring rain, then sunny again… all week.

This is the Statue of Queen Victoria out front of Buckingham Palace.

This is pretty cool shot of some old building. I did some experimenting this year with lighting and perspective. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. Such is life.

That semi-famous clock tower…

These two are from Covent Garden

Home

We’re home. We’ve got about 1500 stills and several hours of video to go through. We even managed to get a few seconds of video of the ceiling of St. Paul’s Cathedral just for Lifewish before the security guy started towards us.

It ain’t much, and I did what I could to pretend I was just rooting around in the camcorder bag, but I don’t think he was buying it. He just stuck really close to us for the rest of our time in there, so I couldn’t sneak any more shots. Kate tried a little flirtation distraction, but apparently he was highly skilled at resisting the temptations of the flesh. It’s hard to point a camcorder while it’s still in the bag and a security guard is five or ten yards away. We were in the whispering gallery at the time, so we couldn’t really do much planning, either. Sorry, best we could do, we ain’t James Bonds you know. It really is beautiful in there.

There were a ton of security guys and priests or whatever in Westminster Abbey, so we couldn’t manage anything at all in there. They don’t even have postcards or anything with pictures of the graves or the effigies or the archetecture that you can buy! Respect for the dead is one thing, but that’s silly. It’s not like there was a service going on or anything. Are they considering that a “Graven Image”? Sorry, bad pun. I’m still tired and couldn’t resist. But it bugs me that they won’t allow photos in those places, or at least let you buy postcards of photos. Seems rather selfish to me.

We’ve got a ton to tell you all about, too. Our last night in London, we went to the reconstructed Globe Theatre to see “A Comedy of Errors”. I think I can safely say that you’ve never seen Shakespeare until you’ve stood on the floor of the Globe as a plebe and watched Shakespeare. It couldn’t have been any better. We even got a little rain shower, which oddly enough was wonderful.

The nightmare began about the time we made it through the BAA searches and stuff at Heathrow. BAA was efficient and thorough. After that, American Airlines took over and turned our travel home into what Kate calls “a clusterfuck”. I think that’s an undeservedly generous description. After they got our plane off the ground an hour and a half late, we missed the connection in Chicago (only American Airlines would route us from London to Chicago to go to Philadelphia!). They destroyed our brand new (albeit cheap, I admit) luggage, and we wound up sitting in O’Hare for about 8 hours, because the next flight to Philadelphia was booked solid. The plane we eventually got took off over an hour late and when we finally got where we were going, the luggage (or what was left of it) took another hour to make it to the baggage pickup. Next time, I’ll take Dad up on the offer to spend a little extra and fly British Airways. American Airlines tried to blame it all on the terrorist crap, but they seemed to be the only airline, foreign or domestic that was experiencing difficulties. I wonder how long they’ll be able to milk that excuse.

Just to top it off, the car battery was dead when we got to the parking lot. Apparently somebody managed to get the car door partially open, the alarm went off, they closed the car back up (nothing missing, we didn’t leave anything in it to take and I don’t think he got it all the way open), and the car alarm went off until the battery gave out. Nice. Philthadelphia, the City of Brotherly Shove. What really pisses me off is that we were parked less than 100 yards from the guard shack.

Off course, with all that time gone, we didn’t get to stay and visit with family and friends there, so we just got the jump (at least the airport did that for free…I gave the guy a five pound bill as a souvenir since he wouldn’t take a tip), hopped in, and drove straight back to Jacksonville. We made it back about 11 this morning, took a bath together for about an hour, and then went to sleep.

We’ll catch you all up on our magical trip tomorrow sometime.

Kisses from bo’fus.

Good Morning From London

So we’ve been pretty busy, and not had a great deal of time to do much blogging.

So whilst Davison was sneaking his perversions onto the board, and blipey and DaveScot have been digitally haranguing each other, here’s what we’ve been doing.

We’ve been to the Tower of London, St. Paul’s, the Natural History Museum, and some other touristy kinds of things.

I bought Kate this beautiful hand-made necklace and bracelet from the artisan in Covent Garden.

But our favorite stop so far was Westminster Abbey. I’ve seen the memorial and burial stone of Isaac Newton. Also buried nearby are Faraday and another scientist who’s name escapes me just now…(I overslept and my brain isn’t in gear yet, give me a break.)

But most interesting and cool in terms of our blog here, we have touched the white marble stone beneath which lie the remains of Charles Darwin. It was strange to think of a man beneath there, given that he has become so much larger than life in the argument of religion vs. evolution.

It was also odd in a more tangible way. Most of the grave stones in the floor of Westminster Abbey are black. A very few it seems, are white, and his was one of those. It’s off in a corner, near the last bit of the tour before you leave, and several scientists, including Faraday, Newton, and Darwin are all buried close together. Sort of a “scientists corner” like the poets corner.

Having a wonderful time, wish you were here.

Kisses
