So anyone else think His Holiness, The Glorified Houseplant Who Would Be Caesar is watching the goings on in Pakistan and drooling all over the notes he’s taking?
Two of my favorite science blogs are in the running for Best Science Blog of 2007. Go vote for BadAstronomy or Pharyngula, if you love your momma, apple pie, beer, and good sex. If you don’t, the terrorists will win.

The space shuttle Discovery went up, it came down, it’s safe and sound. Going ’round the earth in circles seems kind of pointless to me, though. I’d much rather we work on a way to zip on over to 55 Cancri f, where a fifth planet has been found around the very sun-like star. It’s in the habitable zone, but about Neptune sized so it’s probably not much like Earth. It’s probably perfect for the Transgendered Purple Octopus Aliens, though. Y’all thought I was kidding about them, didn’t ya’?
The Flyboys are much improved over last year. They’re gonna kick some butt this year. Uncle Kev the sports machine is picking them for the cup. The Eagles, not so much. The Phils dudded. Other than the dreamboats on ice, it’s sucking to be a Philadephia sports fan these days. (I don’t follow basketball, and I despise the Eagles, but I feel for Uncle Kev. He had such high hopes for the birds this year.)
Matt flings some poo at this new classic from perennial nutjob MinTheGap, who tells us that if there is such a thing as Global Warming, it’s just God using the weather to draw our attention to our sin. That guy’s so far out there, he’s half-way to 55 Cancri.
Blake Stacey cracks me up.
