Miracle on 34th Street? Tuesday, Dec 19 2006 

San Franciscans will tell you there is no 34th Street in San Francisco, rather there is a 34th avenue. However, I was looking at on old map today of San Francisco from 1903 (you can find it at davidrumsey.com) and it shows a 34th street (long since vanished) not far from my house. It’s not very long (about 2 blocks), and was located where Stillings avenue ends at Teresita today.

Why do I bring mention this? No particular reason. I just found it interesting. I’m a stickler for history, that’s all.


If Everybody Had… Saturday, Nov 18 2006 

For many years of my life, I always sang that line from Surfin’ USA by The Beach Boys as “If everybody had a notion”. Today I learned it’s actually “if everybody had an ocean”. Surely I’m not the only person who has made this mistake!

Pluto no longer an official planet Thursday, Aug 24 2006 

A lot of people seem concerned, even angered over this decision by the IAU. “Save Pluto!” some people cried out.

Are these fucking people kidding me? I’m sorry, it just doesn’t bother me that much. I have bigger news items to worry about. Like this, for instance.

Putting the ‘Fun’ back in ‘Fundamentalist’ Sunday, May 28 2006 

Apparently Fundamentalists can be funny. I’m staying away from this subject for now, but I think if the Dixie Chicks had said “We support the troops and our president, and by the way screw the ACLU and atheists” Conservatives would be singing paeans to them.

By the way, fuck you Babe Ruth, and fuck the Yankees. Barry Bonds, an SF player, is now #2 on the all time Home Run list. Hey, I can’t name my blog after a certain word and not be that word at least once (see the About page for what I’m talking about).

Happy April Fool’s Day Saturday, Apr 1 2006 

To celebrate this day of tomfoolery, I am proud to announce a little something I’m working on called The Intelligent Design Hoax, excerpts of which will appear on this very blog.

As Red State Rabble pointed out, April 1st really should be Intelligent Design Day.

Just a reminder… Friday, Mar 24 2006 

If you aren’t reading “Uncommonly Dense” you are missing out on grade-A entertainment. Seriously.

Suckswuh 2006 Saturday, Mar 11 2006 

I envy all of you who are able to attend.

And sorry for not posting again. I had my second viral infection in 5 weeks.

Now that I’m back, I plan to try out some of the new WordPress.com widgets.

A Question Sunday, Feb 26 2006 

Does anyone really give a fuck about the Winter Olympics?

Totally unrelated, but I started reading War and Peace last night. I expect to be done by 2021.

Spam Blog or Not? Wednesday, Feb 15 2006 

You decide. I say yes.

(Found through my referrers.)

Not Dead Tuesday, Feb 14 2006 

In case you were wondering, I am not dead. Though there have been times earlier last week I wished so.

You see, right after I published the Carnival of the Godless, I fell ill with Infectious Mononucleosis. I had one of the worst sore throats in my life. Talking and swallowing were both incredibly painful. I spent most of last week in bed.

Anyhoo, check out this new article on ALA, wherein I am briefly featured.

P.S. I also changed this site’s theme to Fleur-de-lys [sic], being the Francophile I am.
