Return of the caption contest. Now with pandas! [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

Me, on the Google Books settlement and your legislators: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

"The Six Billion Dollar Colon" — ericjamesstone's rarest published story.

Airplane 'bird strikes' have climbed dramatically, FAA records show — Foxes?

Brewing with Synthetic Biology — Science! Plus I love the fact that "synthetic biologist" is a job title.

Microbe-Powered 'Fart' Machine Stores Energy — Um...

Reclaiming America's soul — Paul Krugman on torture. Having spent years as a liberal being told I was immoral, unethical and Godless, I'd sure like to see some moral and ethical accountability for the conservatives who made this mess. God will know His own, I guess.

tongodeon with more on Tea Parties — Not that conservatives make much sense to start with (intellectual consistency being pretty much a disqualification for aconservative), but the more you look at the nuts and bolts, the nuttier they seem.

Thought police muscle up in Britain — Liberal-progressives get as creepy as conservatives. (Thanks to danjite.)

?otD: Which way to the egress?

On the "Thought police muscle up in Britain" piece -- I find it telling that he cites the Royal Navy decision to provide chaplaincy services for Wiccan crew members as "satanist".

This guy is a right-wing crank. Yes, there's a lot of bone-headed rigid enforcement of regulations going on in the UK at the moment. But this isn't the right source to get your facts from.

God will know His own, I guess.

Did you just advocate the mass slaughter of conservatives?

Not that I know of. I was merely observing that I'm not in a position to know who is Godless.

Heh, according to the book I just read, that story is apocryphal.

It is, nonetheless, the source of that phrase...

Dude, look at the rhetorical structure of my remark. The God comment is an echo, not a threat.
