the Minor Prophet Sturgeon

Eureka!  Another way that won't work!

Eureka! Another way that won’t work!

 

Sturgeon’s Law: Ninety Percent of Everything is Crap.

All too true, really. But why is that?  We should strongly suspect, in fact we should believe, that the 90% is necessary to the 10%. The road to heaven is paved with repented errors. (more…)

Boys Aren’t Girls. Girls Aren’t Boys.

I think this should get a Nobel Prize. I think I should get a Nobel Prize too. I just invented fire.

A Variant on Deja Vu in Dreams

September 24th, 2014 by G.

Last night I had a dream that had the strong sense that the dream took place in a scene setting where I’ve had dreams before.  The sense was that this dream was a new episode in something ongoing.  But I don’t recall those other dreams at all.

This isn’t the only dream I’ve had that presented itself as a new chapter in a sequence,  but where I had no recollection of the sequence.

A father’s wisdom

September 23rd, 2014 by Vader

A vignette from Central Park: I pass a gaggle of young women, and one is saying, “I was watching Jersey Shore, and my dad came in and thought I was watching porn!” They break into giggles.

A warlike people

September 23rd, 2014 by Ask a Liberal Mormon

Budget cuts will force the Army to further scale back training for units based in the United States, allowing only for training to company level (one hundred or so troops).  The size of the Army is being reduced to pre–World War II levels. The Navy has fewer ships than at any time since before World War I; the Air Force is smaller (and flying older aircraft) than at any time since its founding.

I, for one, welcome this move towards embracing Spencer W. Kimball’s wise counsel. Not that I normally advocate feeling bound by the words of dead prophets, but I make an exception when they agree with the words I’m certain we will hear from future prophets.

Scottish Elect to Keep Taking English Gold

September 19th, 2014 by Bertie

My little wager with the punters re the Scottish Independence Referendum having yielded a tidy little sum, Wooster HQ is feeling yeasty benevolence all around, not least to our bewhiskered northern brethren who have given a firmish, well, mildly firmish, nolle prosequi to the bother of dissolving the Union. If any of our stout English yeomanry is of a mind to pluck the gowans fine with the tartan-clad, he is now free to continue plucking like billy-o.

Jeeves, this calls for celebration. A whiskey and s., pronto and right soon. Make it scotch.

Suffer the Little Malthusians to Come Unto Me

September 17th, 2014 by Man SL

The Reverend Malthus taught a horrifying gospel. In a way, so did Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Death of the Grown-Up

September 16th, 2014 by Jeeves

I fear reports of my demise have been much exaggerated. Death at this juncture would not have been suitable, I trust.

Confucius was a Chinaman

September 15th, 2014 by Man SL

Political correctness is, to a large extent, an organized effort to keep truth from being applied to the problems of reality.
