How Geeks & Nerds Do It

Posted in Humor on April 26th, 2014

I know that long-standing pop culture tradition states that scientists, academics, and other geeks and nerds don’t have sex very often. This is, however, simply untrue. These folks do it. They just each do it in their own respective ways…

  • Astronomers do it in the dark
  • Mathematicians do it in numbers
  • Biologists do it in the field
  • Chemists do it periodically on the table
  • Geologists do it in folded beds
  • Palaeontologists do it in the dirt
  • Computer scientists do it bit by bit
  • Electrical engineers do it until it hertz
  • Physicists do it with force
  • When seismologists do it, the Earth shakes
  • Zoologists do it with animals
  • Polymer chemists do it in chains
  • Cosmologists do it with a bang
  • Theorists do it on paper
  • Geneticists do it in their genes
  • Statisticians do it with 99% confidence
  • Planetary scientists do it while gazing at Uranus
  • Philosophers only think about doing it
  • Quantum Physicists are uncertain about doing it but are sure it will cause multiple entanglements

Science\;is\;{\sqrt{1+\tan^{2}C}}

On the bright side, scientists are generally against one night stands; they want repeatable results. On the dark side, they tend to talk about their sexual exploits and partners; it’s part of the peer review process. 😉

NOTE: For those not comfortable with equations, the square root of one plus tan squared C is equal to the square root of sec squared C which is equal to sec C (= sexy).

MSM Decides The Truth

Posted in Politics, Society on April 26th, 2014

One the problems with living in a society that is based upon consensus reality is that agents can and do alter the public censensus in order to make specific agendas the de facto truth.

Media Chooses Truth

One of, if not the, worst offenders in this is the Lamestream Media. For generations they’ve manipulated the public’s collective consciousness in order to shape reality to suit whatever their agendas were at that time. A perfect, current example of the media’s deliberate bias is how they “carefully” presented some controversial remarks that a reporter solicited from Cliven Bundy.

On the left you have the 3:13 minute long, full commentary by Cliven Bundy. On the right you the 1:29 minute long, heavily edited clip that the MSM chose to air and put up for public intake.

The Truth VS. The MSM

Now this doesn’t come as a surprise. The media has long held that is occupies and exalted position, one with the right and responsibility to use their power to shape society. Their painting Cliven Bundy as a horrid racist is just the latest of a long series of lies, misinformation campaigns, and carefully chosen topic to broadcast.

It’s disturbing but it’s also something that the majority of Americans are used to and used to filtering out and compensating for. What’s more disturbing and harder to deal with are the increase in the prevalence and extremity of the Lamestream Media’s bias and the fact that they are no longer shilling just their own agenda. Others are now scripting the news.

Who's Scripting US News?

No, under the Obama Regime the press isn’t exactly a free press any longer. The various handlers and overseers of Obama have had the boy use any and all methods that he could get away to get a leash around the collective necks of the media in order to coerce them into airing the Regime’s messages and only the Regime’s messages.

That’s a sad and scary situation. It was bad enough having to deal with press that was a largely independent enemy of the American people. Having a press that is now little more than the propaganda corps of an enemy regime is far, far worse.

Folks, We’re Screwed

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on April 24th, 2014

Folks, were screwed. The Promised Land, that shining city on the hill, has been broken, sold off, and sold out.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels, and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Obama Care, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc …. I called a Suicide Hotline.

I had to press 1 for English.

I was connected to a call center in Pakistan. I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck……

Folks, we’re screwed.

Yeah, it’s not really something to make jokes of but you either have to laugh, cry, or end up doing something that’ll get you on the news…
