New Blog: Twisted Physics. Here.

Short, rather derivative, but cute because of the title: Yet more evidence that the Bible was written solely by old men

Why else would there be a story whose moral is, “If you make fun of bald men, you will be mauled to death by bears”?

Amazing, first time ever seen on the internet: LOL photographs integrated with listing of New and Exciting PLoS ONE Academic Papers. A Must See!!!! Totally LOL … (which I guess it would kinda hafta be….)

    My take on Jesse running for Senate is short and sweet: Dumbass.

    I think he figured out last time that if he ran, he might just have to do the job. And that isn’t the fun part.

    I haven’t really thought about his chances. He may get some of the knee-jerk conspiracy theorist hate the party system vote. I don’t know who he is more likely to siphon from, Coleman or Franken. Probably not so much from Coleman, since he appeals to the same demographic as Coleman. I think it would be ironic if he took from Democrats upset by Franken’s Playboy article, considering that in the first year of Jesse’s term as governor he said that if he were to be reincarnated it would be as a bra. He said it in Playboy.
