TSA: makin me feel safer or NOT

Okay.  I get airport safety regulations; I really do.  I travel a lot for work; I get it.  However, it is days like yesterday that make me go, “Da’ hell???”

Years ago it used to be that you could take rediculous things on a flight–as carryon.  I used to fly with an entire strolling juggling show as carryon: clubs, silicone balls, sheathed throwing knives, sharp sticks, whatever.  Very little, if any, hassle.  Now, not so much.  And I don’t expect (or want) to carry any of that stuff on now.  Gels, on the other hand, need to follow sane rules and not the ones currently being applied.

New Year’s Eve in Kentucky???

Ah yes, back to lovely Kentucky for the New Year. I thought I’d had my fill of Kentucky back in October, but it looks like I get to go back for dessert. It seems that there are New Year parties in Prestonburg and they need entertainment. Another actor who was supposed to be doing the show had an emergency and I get to fill in on short notice. Yeah.

If you can’t make the Jenny Wiley State Park this year, check out Upstage Productions on the side bar and see when and where you might be able to catch a show. It’s interactive murder mystery theatre: a fun show and lots of booze, what could be better?

Was there a Communist uprising I missed?


I am an Anti-Communist!

Your only Non-Communist Third Party Slave Freedom Alliance candidate for President of The United States, seeking the Libertarian, Constitution, Southern, Goldwater-Reagan Conservative, Independent, Reform and Boston Tea Party nominations.

I love this! That’s quite a bloc of voters he’s after. Really if that’s all the votes he’s after, why even mount a campaign and waste the money?

Does he really have to include the “only” qualifier at the top of his intro? Hmmmm.

Well, read all about him at Chapman for President and remember sometimes it does matter who you vote for.

DaveTard’s Exam Primer

Dave Scott Springer, blog czar of the very amusing Uncommon Descent, has invited me to look him up when I roll through town on my current tour. I’m very much looking forward to this. {edit:}Steve Story, at After the bar Closes, wondered what it would be like to actually test Dave’s knowledge in some of his many expertises. I think this is a great idea and want to help it happen.

So, anyone with any ideas for questions, leave ’em here. Try not to make them too difficult–he won’t have long to answer (I’m not sticking around all day). But, hey, if a tricky one slips through it’ll be alright; I think he’s a world reknowned expert in:

computer hardware, biology, federal case law, all forms of engineering, psychodelic fungus growing, colorful language, naked women, boats, patent law, warfare, agnosticism, aetheism, deism, physics, use of the word autoerotic asphyxiadidact, and is a self-made multi-millionaire with a certified IQ approaching the Universal Probability Bound.

Study up, Dave.

You may address me as…

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
His Most Noble Lord Blipey the Subversive of Mellow under Trollness
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Hat tip to JanieBelle at U Dream of Janie for showing us this one. I love it; reminds me of the old Shakespearean Insult sheet, Lots of fun.

The School as Identity

Our last show of the semester was in Plainview, OK. For the small minority of people who may not know where that is, think Colorado. Seriously, it’s way out in the panhandle of Oklahoma, in the only county in the nation that borders 4 states: Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Texas.

Joe G., Classic case of why we think IDiots are Idiots

In this comical thread at Intelligent Reasoning (I know, get the laughter out before clicking the link.), we have Joe G. trying to avoid answering the question, “Why do you think that scientists are raving lunatics who know nothing about science?”
