I got this from Digg, an interesting news site (which is heavily infiltrated by Ron Paulbots, Facebook and everything anti-establishment in-between):
In what computer analysts and physicists all over the world have classified as "a clear and present danger to the survivability of the Human Race and the Universe as we know it," LA area-man and Gizmodo reader Kevin Barbee reports that his Windows Vista Problem Reporting has reported that it has stopped reporting. White House's security advisor for Weapons of Mass Destruction Tom Lennox pointed that government experts are now scrambling to understand how this doomsday device, what they call the Krazawski-Gothenberg-Travolta Paradox, arrived to Kevin's computer:

Pirates and global warming
According to the Pastafarian belief system, pirates are "absolute divine beings" and the original Pastafarians.Their image as "thieves and outcasts" is misinformation spread by Christian theologians in the Middle Ages and Hare Krishnas. Pastafarianism says that they were in fact "peace-loving explorers and spreaders of good will" who distributed candy to small children, and adds that modern pirates are in no way similar to "the fun-loving buccaneers from history."
Pastafarians celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day on the 19th of September.
The inclusion of pirates in Pastafarianism was part of Henderson's original letter to the Kansas School Board. It illustrated that correlation does not equal causation.
Henderson put forth the argument that "global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of pirates since the 1800s."

Oh my dear God... tonight was an amazing exercise in the art of drinking alone. To my credit I did text message some people but they weren't ready for libation, so I handled things for everyone.
Does my capitalization of God in the previous paragraph and in this sentence imply that I believe in said entity and show him/her/it some kind of respect? Dunno...
I should drive to the office right now and lay down some really hot C++ data structures.

In the last month or so, he's posted 12 different Radiohead articles, which can be found here, and there's one today about how the new album is being physically released on Dec 31st. Which begs the question: how is it possible for conservatives to like Radiohead? I mean, besides the obvious fact that Radiohead rocks and everyone should like them...

Also, this is awesome.
"This sounds really daft, but I still cannot understand – I wish I could – why all the religious movements can’t sit down together and say, ‘OK, now this is what we have got in common: this, this, this and this. OK, there are some things we disagree on, but your figurehead and your figurehead and your figurehead are basically the same person, just at different points in human evolution. So, why don’t we agree that it’s the same person and we’ve got more in common than we have not in common? And now let’s stop fighting!’"--Thom Yorke

a few faves:
-15 Step is a funky, signature "5/4"-signature track, which gets my signature of approval
-Weird Fishes, probably tied with All I Need as my favorite tracks, I love the density and multilayering of each track, especially the big, heavenly build at the end of All I Need
-Jigsaw Falling Into Place is great, sounds like the soundtrack to a pensive quest of sorts, also a great buildup and interesting chord developments/unfoldings
-Videotape is also excellent, kind of haunting & somber yet engaging in the way only Thom Yorke can make it, if I had a soul it'd be touched by it.
not so faves:
-Bodysnatchers reminds me hella of Cuttooth...
-Nude reminds me of Don't Get Any Big Ideas!
-Faust Arp... House of Cards would be more interesting if I knew how they created some of those sounds...
alright well that took a good half hour, now i gotta find shit to do for only 1 more hour and i'm on my way home.

FURIOUS FIGHTER FROM THE SEA TRIES TO EAT FX
This guy doesn't look very big in this picture, but is probably 6 feet long and weighs about 5-600 lbs. He was just chillin as me & my crew were taking pictures of him, but then all the sudden he got up and started barking like a motherfucker. Our humanoid scents must have pissed him off, because he then lunged for us, and I barely escaped the grasp of his powerful jaws (not really, they actually only move about 1 mph on rocks, and I was about 8 feet away). But it was kinda scary for a few seconds when he was charging at us, galumphing his oafish, shiny mass at us in a hateful manner.
We saw this sign on the way out:
Then, having lived to go home and write a blog about it, I did.
(if you are bored and so inclined, here are a few more pictures from the journey... i'll probably put up more Hawaii pics in the future, as i figure out how to use my digital camera better)

I'm sick of this 'world-of-irrational-terrorists' scenario that the media keeps stuffing down our throats. Shouldn't the public education system of this country ensure that our citizens are wary of such ridiculous demonization schemes?
I will test your motherfuckin theory so hard its motherfuckin ass turns red.
What about the urges for interstellar exploration that spontaneously erupt during the dotted, intertwining polyphonic melodies of the Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd?
Reggae: ....thats just country for stoners...
This mother forced her baby to take mad hits of the bizong, so that the child would become more mellow and docile.
Embattled U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum said America has avoided a second terrorist attack for five years because the “Eye of Mordor” has been drawn to Iraq instead.
...the sole contributing factor by which our
musical products have value is 'creative infusion

How did I resist the call of Taco Bell on the way home from the library this evening?
Why are we still in Iraq?
Darth Maul was not played by an actor, but was rather an actual demon that was possessing Rick McCallum’s waffle iron.
The majority of our work together will consist in furious and meticulous recreations of Paco De Lucia guitar solos from which we will extract nuggets of tonal expression which will later be reimplemented/arranged as a suite of extended non-diatonic 'tone poems'.
Donovan NcNabb took to one final drag from his cock-shaped crack pipe before falling into bed.
Best Muse song?
I say "Knights of Cydonia" because when I'm at the gym and the burn is real cavernous and domestic, and I feel like giving into the hatred of the terrorist, thus letting the terrorist win, that glorious epic comes on and gives me six more minutes on the treadmill, thus lessening the impact on my liver and lungs from all the dirty fucking filth I put in there.

The Taos Hum
Some residents and visitors in the small city of Taos, New Mexico, have for years been annoyed and puzzled by a mysterious and faint low-frequency hum in the desert air. Oddly, only about 2 percent of Taos residents report hearing the sound. Some believe it is caused by unusual acoustics; others suspect mass hysteria or some secret, sinister purpose. Whether described as a whir, hum, or buzz and whether psychological, natural, or supernatural no one has yet been able to locate the sound's origin.
Only 2 percent of the population hear it and yet its the #1 unexplained phenomenon!!?? WTF!! Of the ten, only the 'mind/body connection' and 'UFO' phenomenon are really significant, but what about the cattle mutilations? Why arent they on the list? They actually provide documentable evidence to be investigated! I hate this godamn popular pseudoscience crap.
Here are some phenomenon that actually are significant and unexplained:
1) Observed gravitational effects which we attempt to account for with 'dark matter' theories, which may be the wrong approach, btw.
2) Quantum computations (must parallel universes factor into the explaination?).
3) The material transformation of the earths surface into cities, roads, power and communication infrastructure, buildings, particle accelerators, cars, furniture, computers, sex toys, and anything else you can think of that humans create. Few try to explain this, because it is so easily taken for granted. But of course I try, and you probably know that I would tell you that it leads us right into transhumanism.
Here's a quantum computer. This should make you feel better.

Parallel universes exist - study

Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as "one of the most important developments in the history of science".

I know I'm being hypocritical by talking about a show that I think doesn't deserve so much attention, but really, if you're an intelligent human being that can think for yourself and you've seen 'The View' once, why the fuck would you ever watch it again, much less rely on it as a credible source of relevant information & analysis, unless you are trying to become a dumber person?
But the main point of this entry is more to tell you about a sweet website, Improbable Research, which covers ridiculous "stories of science and research." Its pretty damn entertaining. This was today's story:
September 19th, 2007
Scientists, it is said, never take any assumption for granted. A panel of amateur scientists on the American TV program “The View” debated two such assumptions... Here is a transcript covering one of the two questions (the video clip covers both questions):
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Is the world flat?
SHERRI SHEPHERD: Is the world flat? (laughter)
SHEPHERD: …I Don’t know.
GOLDBERG: What do you think?
SHEPHERD: I… I never thought about it, Whoopi. Is the world flat? I never thought about it.
BARBARA WALTERS: You’ve never thought about whether the world was round or flat?
SHEPHERD: I tell you what I’ve thought about. How I’m going to feed my child–
WALTERS: Well you can do both.
SHEPERD: …how I’m going to take care of my family. The world, is the world flat has never entered into, like that has not been an important thing to me.
ELIZABETH HASSELBECK: You’ll teach your son, Jeffery, right?
SHEPHERD: If my son, Jeffery, asks me ‘is the world flat,’ I guess I would go…
JOY BEHAR: You know, didn’t some person already work this question out? I mean, why are we doing this again? (laughter, applause)
... and then the world became a slightly stupider place to live in...

The Associated Press
OKLAHOMA CITY -- To some University of Oklahoma football fans, there are things that just aren't done in the heart of Sooner Nation, and one of them is to walk into a bar wearing a Texas Longhorns T-shirt.
That's exactly what touched off a bloody skirmish that left a University of Texas fan nearly castrated and an Oklahoma fan facing aggravated assault charges that could put him in prison for up to five years.
The case has set off a raging debate in this football-crazed region about the extreme passions behind a bitter rivalry. Some legal observers even question whether this case could ever truly have an impartial jury.
"I've actually heard callers on talk radio say that this guy deserved what he got for wearing a Texas T-shirt into a bar in the middle of Sooner country," said Irven Box, an attorney in this city 20 miles from OU's campus in Norman.
Police say Brian Christopher Thomas, 32, walked into Henry Hudson's Pub on June 17 wearing a Longhorns T-shirt and quickly became the focus of football trash talk from another regular, Sooners fan Allen Michael Beckett, 53.
Thomas told police that when he went to the bar to pay his tab, Beckett grabbed him in the crotch, pulled him to the ground and wouldn't let go, even as other bar patrons tried to break it up.
It took more than 60 stitches to close the wound, and police interviewed Thomas at a nearby hospital.
Beckett's attorney, Billy Bock, concedes that his client commented about Thomas' shirt but said that it was just good-natured ribbing and that he apologized to Thomas when it appeared to upset the Texas fan. Later, Bock said, Thomas approached his client at the bar and threatened him.
Thomas' attorney disputes Beckett's version. "That's total malarkey," Hughes said. "My client never said a word to him. He got up to pay and when he paid and left a tip, the guy grabbed him."
Beckett, a church deacon, federal auditor and former Army combat veteran, has pleaded not guilty. His next court appearance comes Oct. 4, two days before the Sooners and Longhorns tangle in their annual football game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
That's the real America in action right there: simple football- and religion-loving country folk, who will rip your dick off if you fuck with them.
That sounds like a much worse fate than catching some shrapnel from a suicide bomber to me.
These model citizens would cut up and eat an invading army with their bare hands; God bless 'Merica.
(of course my state would roll over, or else be annihilated altogether in the case of a war with China, as we have military bases & gift shops for every armed service here)

You know you're one of my top bros, bro, because you got my back. And I got yours. You're my bro. But you went above and beyond the other night, bromaldehyde. You really did. Saving me that seat at the Velvet Revolver show, even though all those other bros were trying to get up front, bro? So clutch.
You are truly a god among bros.
Just when I think you're as solid as a bro can get, you raise the very definition of brodom to new heights. You're like a brogle, soaring to the farthest reaches of the atbrosphere. Seriously. If it weren't for you and your extreme brobility to hook a bro up when it is most croosh, I'd have been stuck in some bitch-ass seat, cramped all in the corner with a bunch of bitch-asses, bro. But you stepped up. You brovercame all obstacles to help a bro out. This is the kind of shit that makes bros for life.
Brody, I was so stoked when you told Gina to go eat a fat one after she asked if she could have your other ticket, even though you knew you could probably get a pretty deese HJ from her. Bros before hos, bro. That's what I'm talking about.
You are the king of all bros. Brotankhamen. You are the Ayatollah Bromeini. You are Broseidon, lord of the brocean.
But this is just one of many times you've fallen on a grenade for me, brozo. Who took the blame when I broke Skeeter's bong and fucking Skeeter was all fucking pissed? You, bro. Who was the first to bro up and carry that fucking keg of Killian's up four flights of stairs for Duke's surprise party? You, bro. Who was the only Bromo sapien on the planet to tell me he thought the brand-new rims on my F-350 were the shit even though everyone else was all, like, fucking not that excited about them? Bro, you know it was you. You're my broheim supremo, bro, and don't you ever forget it.
I'm so fucking glad we're bros, bro!
I've long admired your absolute broficiency in all things bro-related, and the way you've always carried yourself in a brofessional manner. I consider you a brole model. When I was new in this town, you took me under your wing and showed me the bropes. And I will always preesh that. Not only did you school me in proper brotocol, but you were a spiritual leader, a confidant, and, more importantly, a bro. You taught me how to be true to my inner bro and to bros around me. You are a real bro. Not a fake bro, like those other douches. I hate fake bros, bro. Faux breaux. Fuck that. No, really, bro…you're practically a bro-ther to me.
Look at you, blasting in like Rambro and firing off your launcher like nobrody's business, bro. Serious Brotosaurus Rex action. Brodius Maximus. I'm not big on labels, but you, more than any of the wiggers, bitches, goth chicks, dorks, homos, or Mexicans I know, are absolutely beyond rebroach.
In fact, your brotitude is so brossential that, in many ways, you are the ultimate brototype: You sprung out of the brotean ooze at the very broment of creation, unformed, unmolded, and became the ultimate bro, more powerful than any who came brofore. I don't fear your power, bro, but I respect it. And I will always brobey it.
Brosemite Sam. Potassium Bromide. Brobi Wan Kenobi. Brover Norquist.
Like Broseph Stalin, you are leading the way to the dictatorship of the broletariate. It is truly revbrolutionary. Like the Bro v. Wade of our generation. You brobliterate the enemy from the very peak of Mt. Brolympus. That's some shit. That's brolific. But that's the kind of bro you are.
Bro-S.A.! Bro-S.A.! I'm so pumped right now! Bro-S.A.!
You are the epitome of bro, in every brossible way, and that's the Bro's honest truth, bro. I may have a bropensity for broverstatement, but this no mere hyperbrole: You are 100 brocent, absbrolutely the broest. Brotally.
I wish I had the words to describe what a good friend you are, dude

I just watched the review on IGN and it looks amazing - like a 360 game. Now two things must happen before tomorrow:
1) I have to beat Bioshock
2) I have to figure out which games I should sell back to buy MP3
Anyway, all the reviews are calling it the best game for the Wii so far, and as it's my second favorite Nintendo series behind Zelda, I must have it.

A pair of German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light - an achievement that would undermine our entire understanding of space and time.
According to Einstein's special theory of relativity, it would require an infinite amount of energy to propel an object at more than 186,000 miles per second.
However, Dr Gunter Nimtz and Dr Alfons Stahlhofen, of the University of Koblenz, say they may have breached a key tenet of that theory.
The pair say they have conducted an experiment in which microwave photons - energetic packets of light - travelled "instantaneously" between a pair of prisms that had been moved up to 3ft apart.
Being able to travel faster than the speed of light would lead to a wide variety of bizarre consequences.
For instance, an astronaut moving faster than it would theoretically arrive at a destination before leaving.
The scientists were investigating a phenomenon called quantum tunnelling, which allows sub-atomic particles to break apparently unbreakable laws.
Dr Nimtz told New Scientist magazine: "For the time being, this is the only violation of special relativity that I know of."
If you arrive at a destination before leaving, then aren't you in the past, and you still have somewhere to go? Then you try and leave again but end up further in the past? I can't think about the implications of this too hard right now. Kevin?

The Hot Times
Live Earth Concerts Trigger Countrywide Power Failure
On an extremely hot summer Sunday - in the month energy consumption surpassed record levels - the simultaneous conduction of dozens of Live Earth concerts by musicians "rockin' out for the environment" caused massive power grid failures across the country, resulting in brownouts, blackouts and subsequently the meltdown of several power generators in multiple states, resulting in the release of thousands of tons of CO2 and radioactive materials into the earth's atmosphere.
As a result, the estimated rate of global warming has quadrupled in intensity, hastening an impending and apocalyptic climate shift.
"Its your fault," explained Al Gore, organizer of the event and climate paranoia expert. "Nobody listened to me 12 years ago when I said the world only has 10 more years of sustainability if we don't make the necessary changes to our heathen lifestyles. I changed, and the world refused to change with me. So, its your fault. Now pardon me, I have a private jet to catch."
Gore had been criticized in recent months for failing to establish a connection between Live Earth and any actual benefit to the environment. His son, Rory Gore had also recently been arrested on suspicious driving and drug charges, which he immediately blamed on global warming.
"As the warming gets worse, I reckon I'll have to do more blow to keep cool," the younger Gore lamented.
Others were not so ready to admit global warming was a bad thing. Air conditioner, shaved ice & beer salesmen, nudists, sand collectors and heat aficionados all rejoiced in fucked-up unison.
"Good! Its friggin cold as shite in Scotland!" commented Arctic Monkeys lead singer Joe Monkey. "We are befittingly changing our name to the Warm Monkeys."

Despite repeated denials from the transparently defensive Gendelman, members of his peer group told reporters that the Whitford native now experiences spontaneous erections throughout the day. The majority of these occur during third-period social studies class, in which he sits behind classmate Sarah Miller, also 13, and stares desperately at the bra straps visible under her tank top. Several handwritten poems discovered during a search of Gendelman's school locker identify Miller as the secret object of his budding affections.
When informed of her classmate's sexual interest in her underwear, Miller called Gendelman "perverted and gross."
The boy's penis, although still tiny compared to those of most boys his age, is becoming erect at other times as well, including in the hallway between classes, on the school bus, and at lunch, an analysis of school security-camera footage confirmed. Gendelman has been observed carrying textbooks and other objects directly in front of his midsection in an ineffective attempt to conceal his blood-engorged member from his peers.
Whitford Middle School nurse Kristin Price initially declined to comment on Gendelman's drastically changing body, citing confidentiality issues. However, notes obtained from Price's office revealed that the middle schooler visited her less than two weeks ago to ask a number of questions about the female reproductive system—a clear sign that hormones have begun to rage through his young body.
Gym class sources eagerly disclosed that the loner's "squeaky, childlike" voice now often cracks, and that Gendleman has recently developed body odor, leading to frequent instances of his "smelling nasty."
Though the signs of his puberty have become increasingly obvious, those closest to the 13-year-old were hesitant to speak to the news media about his transformation. His mother, Janice, had to be confronted with the results of a six-week examination of her family's laundry before admitting to reporters that the boy has begun to experience the nocturnal emissions of semen commonly known as "wet dreams."
Gendelman's father, Frank, expressed surprise when he was shown pictures of women exposing their vaginas and told that they were recovered using the browser history on his family's personal computer.
"Apparently, he doesn't know about the 'delete history' function," Frank Gendelman said. "He may be growing up, but he's still naïve in so many ways."
Interviews with more popular students in the school's locker room further confirmed Gendelman's budding pubescence. The larger boys revealed that despite "acting like a little baby all the time" and "playing basketball like a girl," Gendelman has finally sprouted a slight growth of "peach fuzz" on his genitalia—a trait that has even earned him the derisive and humiliating nickname "Peach Fuzz Gendelman" among his gym class peers.
Gendelman himself could not be reached for comment on this story, as he was locked in the family bathroom using the suction created after taking the top off of his mother's conditioner bottle, squeezing the air out of it, and placing his penis against the opening to simulate what he imagines oral sex to feel like.

Alabama Boy Kills 1,051-Pound Monster Pig, Bigger Than 'Hogzilla'
"It feels really good," Jamison, of Pickensville, said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "It's a good accomplishment. I probably won't ever kill anything else that big."
Mike Stone is having sausage made from the rest of the animal. "We'll probably get 500 to 700 pounds," he said.

THE SECESSIONIST METHOD OF COMPOSITION is a system of thought that was instigated by the precepts promulgated by the Kaluza-Klein, Superstring, Supergravity and M-Theories. It is fueled by the principle that all the dimensions that hold up music can be factorized down to three parent dimensions: the Cognitive Dimension, the Oscillatory Dimension and the Spatial Dimension. To arrive at the conclusions that affirm Secessionism, a deductive technique that incorporates art theory, philosophy and science was employed to mathematically intervene all three dimensions in order to formulate a doctrine that was able to scientifically prove that the primal powers of every preponderant theoretical proposition in music could be sustained within a common space-time, while retaining a plausible aesthetic inference. Its main propeller: The Secessionist Manifesto, labels these interventions (Abstract Tonality, Abstract Bitonality, Polysuspension and Dodecametrics) as the supreme solvents in which the limits of non-improvisation and the withdrawal from planned intention (the secessionist discourse) may be manifested. The Secessionist Method of Composition was schemed by Antonio Quijano by coherently interlocking a series of philosophical and scientific precepts (Suprematism, Fredkin’s Paradox, Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, and Gödel’s Theorem) in order to attain a logical description of the mechanisms that define an art form which borders the ceilings of human aural perception.

This is in response to the letter entitled "Americans have no culture" (4/4).
Since I don't think its humanly possibly to be close-minded enough to completely ignore the positive impact of America on the world (especially when you are living in America), I would postulate that the people who run around saying "America has no culture" must do so for ulterior motivations, since downplaying the positive contributions America has made to the world seems to better fit their world view that America is good-for-nothing and can only do wrong.
Yes, America has made some grave mistakes, and it is unfortunate that because of you-know-who on Pennsylvania Ave. our international popularity has sunken to perhaps a new found low, but our wrongdoings as a nation do not somehow magically void out our great sense of culture as accomplishment as a people, contrary to the intentions of the whiney naysayers.
So what is American culture you ask? Besides democracy, electricity, the automobile, bluegrass, jazz, coutry, rap, grunge music, hamburgers, hotdogs, SPAM, baseball, basketball, football, The Godfather and a thousand other great movies, the sitcom, the Internet, the Xbox 360, the artificial heart and liver, the sequencing of the human genome, the exploration of space and the moon, and the creation of the United Nations, American culture can be found wherever Americans breathe, eat and sleep.
