Whose Nose and When Did They Nose it?
Intelligent life on other planets
The competing premises are…
- With an infinite universe, the likelihood of another planet with intelligent life is possible.
- That rewinding the development of intelligent life on earth and expecting a duplication on another planet is very remote.
What makes us so sure that intelligent life exists on earth? The bar must be set rather low, imo. (Sarcasm: maybe, maybe not).
File this under “ crap, I wish I hadn’t read ”.
"After nosing about in guano for several hours, one goes completely cuckoo," lead researcher Bo Elberling said in a statement.
Try to get that image from your mind, while keeping in mind… these are scientists.
(Again, that bar must be kind of low.)
South Korea’s social distancing soccer sex dolls!
Apparently, social distancing sex dolls wearing face masks in the stands for matches can get you fined big time. The league deemed it offensive to women fans.
As the dolls had on masks and from the picture appeared to be fully clothed… how did the league determine they were sex dolls?
Don’t kid yourself, this straight to the people cash is intended to ensure people continue meeting their financial obligations. In other words, paying off debt, rent, etc. to prop up the financial sector. Granted, it is necessary, but it is also clear, the public debt to GDP ratio will top 105% by end of June and is just beginning, imo. For comparison it was about 81.7% by end of March, after being 78.8% at end of 2019.
Taking back our rights
I’ve noticed people not wearing masks and proclaiming their personal liberties. I agree wholeheartedly. I think we should go barefoot and without shirts into stores, restaurants etc. while firing up a cigarette. Personal liberties prevail!! (Sarcasm: maybe, maybe not).
Remember why smoking is no longer allowed in so many places? 2 nd hand smoke and the carcinogens that could cause lung cancer. Forget all the other comparisons. A lot of places banned smoking for health reasons of their staff and non-smoking patrons, as well as laws, ordnances and regulations. The courts say this is constitutional. This is the comparison that should be put forth.
Quit trying to blow smoke up someone’s ass and just put on the damn mask where it is required.
Dayzed and Confused
I read an article that stated the average person forgot what day of the week it was about 5 times a week. I doubt I care five times a week as to what day it is. Unless you have something to do or somewhere to be… it does not matter. Even then, my fancy calendar alerts me when to get ready and when to leave the house. I only put in the month and day, along with lead times, then forget about it.
Oh wait… some of you need to fear Mondays, rejoice in hump days and tgif.
Not seeing much movement in the polls. Yes, I know the polls say Biden has X percent of a lead nationwide. 100% of voters in California could vote for Biden and it results in the same 55 electoral votes. But it would distort polls and mislead people into thinking Biden could sleepwalk his way to the presidency. Oooh! Is there another conspiracy lurking?
As of this moment, I see 243 electoral votes for Biden and 151 for Trump, with 134 in the toss-up category. Granted there are enough “leans” to give Biden the victory, but the Tower of Pisa has been leaning since it was started in the 12 th century and still leans 800+ years later. We won’t really know until all the hanging chads have been counted, imo. Sigh! Yes, Florida is in a lean column.
As for mail in ballots, I would think Trump would prefer this method. Whose supporters are more likely to be familiar with using the postal service. He should worry about voting apps, imo. Would that be akin to comparing Apps to Oranges? Think about it.
