A Day to Remember

This Memorial Day:

Class on Thursday (Vice Friday) at NoBullU on WEBY

UPDATE: As a follow up to the discussion regarding risk and "the difficulty of predicting disaster in complex technological systems," read The York Times, Drilling for Certainty.

Listen to the voice of wisdom and reason in a wilderness of partisan rhetoric -- No political insanity, no conservative hypocrisy, no liberal foolishness -- Just straight talk, straight at you, and that’s no bull!!

NoBullU will broadcast Thursday from 4:05 to 6:00 p.m. at 1330 AM WEBY and on line, courtesy of Cyber Smart Computers.


Local and regional: another curve ball for Pace High's baseball team, but they hit it out of the stadium; the local bad boy Commissioner and the pretty dead blonde, his impeachment charges and now his indictment for murder; and

Nation and international: Republi-CON Memorial Day CONtroversy; fact-free Palin, is her brand tarnished?; Senator 'Sexy Bitch'; the CONspriacy game; faking it!; School of One; what would you cut in the federal budget (I suggested my long ago proposal to cut all federal pay and benefits by 10% for the first $100k and 50% above that) (early responses to another Republi-con request for ideas have been pretty far out); a Korean 'symphony of death;' health care lawsuit update; Republi-CON 'adultery' hilarity; monetize out-of-wedlock teen pregnancy; and oil spill fallout to date: watch out, Cantore says oil not coming, serious reporting or media fear-mongering, shocking realization that bottom-line influences corporate policy, political grandstanding, and Republi-CON 'less government' hypocrisy.

But I'll discuss anything. Disclaimer: the host reserves the right to end any discussion and hang up on you.)

So tune-in, call-in, but only if you can handle some ass kickin' discussion of politics and current events!

4 Worms in Church

A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.

The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.

The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol - Dead

The second worm in cigarette smoke - Dead

Third worm in chocolate syrup - Dead

Fourth worm in good clean soil - Alive.

So the Minister asked the congregation - “What did you learn from this demonstration?”

Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, “As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!”

That pretty much ended the service!
