Outing deGrasse Tyson

Posted in Humor, Society on June 21st, 2014

You know how some sorts claim that people who have a negative attitude towards homosexuality are likely to harbor unacknowledged or repressed attraction towards the same sex? Well, the same thing seems to apply to astronomy and cosmology as well.

Snakes On A Plane - Now That's a motherfucking math lesson
Snakes On A Plane

I guess a lot of parents are glad that Samuel L. Jackson never decided to teach geometry. ;-)

Snakes, however, are important to applied geometry and other forms of math and that is a Mutherfuckin’ math lesson because snakes aka Active Contour Models use some seriously Mutherfuckin’ math. :lol:

Climate Heresy

Posted in Politics on June 12th, 2014

The Magisterium of the Warmist faith have- and make great use of their Inquisition.  Woe betide the scientist who strays from orthodoxy and into climate heresy. While the Inquisitions tools are different than they were, they are no less terrifying to those who have failed to appreciate and follow the AGW doctrine as it is set forth for them.

Global Warming Heresy
The Climate Change Inquisition Brooks No Heresy

For those souls who do not accept the incontrovertible Word of Mann, there is nothing but confinement and pain until such time as the recant and return to the Global Warming flock.

I’m left wondering, however, about how many, if any, dedicated scientists muttered, “Eppure si raffredda.” after their required Auto-da-fé.

For those who don’t already know, Eppure si raffredda is Italian for “But it cools” which is a riff upon- and homage to Galileo Galilei’s utterance of, “Eppur si muove” – But yet it moves – after after his being forced to recant that the earth moves around the sun by the Inquisition.
