I will move far away if the local zoo announces they are building a genetic crossbred/cloned dinosaur habitat.

Good luck with that Nobel, Nigel!

I see Nigel was here and gone, before I could offer her my condolences on Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler winning the Nobel Prize in Physics this year instead of her.

But, there's always next year.

Mueller to testify publicly on July 17 following a subpoena

As per the article:

“Robert Mueller will testify before Congress on July 17 after House Democrats issued a subpoena for his appearance, a move that paves the way for a reluctant special counsel to answer questions publicly for the first time about his 22-month investigation into President Donald Trump.

The House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees announced Tuesday that Mueller had agreed to testify after they issued subpoenas for his testimony, and Mueller would appear in public before the two panels next month.”

Here's the link: https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/25/politics/robert-mueller-will-testify/index.html

So, what are the odds Mueller will actually show up, if Trump claims he is barred from testifying by reason of Executive Privilege? Based upon the Special Counsel's behavior to date, I'm not feeling particularly optimistic.

So, both the jeep and the toyota having been totaled by Tucson incompetence, I have bought a Lincoln Towncar.

I dare you, Tucson.  I fucking double dog dare you.

Now, get out there on the highway, play “Ride of the Valkyries” as loud as your eardrums can stand it, and see what that Town Car can do!

Or, if you're in a more mellow mood, “Hot Rod Lincoln” is an excellent choice.

FWIW, I went the other way. I traded in my old worse-for-wear-and-tear gray '89 Town Car in for a Jeep Wrangler. I like the Jeep, but I still miss The Dreadnought.

Karl Orff

“Carmina Burana” is certainly a good choice, but I'm more of an “Apocalypse Now” kind of guy.

Lightsaber duelling registered as official sport in France

As per the article:

“It’s now easier than ever in France to act out Star Wars fantasies. The country’s fencing federation has officially recognised lightsaber duelling as a competitive sport, granting the weapon from George Lucas’s space saga the same status as the foil, epee and sabre, the traditional blades used at the Olympics.”

Here's the link: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/feb/19/light-saber-duelling-official-sport-france-star-wars

I was going to post this in the High Wierdness board, before realizing that it was bound to happen sooner or later.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tScAyNaRdQ They're made of meat.

O man. I remember reading the original back in 1992. Someone printed it out and put it out on the tables at Chattacon. Wikipedia says it was originally published in Omni Magazine back in 1991.

Glad to see it is still around and growing legs.

Here's a link to the original story: http://www.terrybisson.com/page6/page6.html

I had never heard of this story, and did not know that the poll choice “We're made out of meat” had a history.

But then, that's why I come to this forum in my continued search for enlightenment.

I'd say naming your website after the book and forcing your interpretation on said book into said website is pretty fuckin defining of speaking for said book therefore misleading everybody. A small website with a rational explanation such as the likes of hyperdiscordia.church would be more defining.

Okay, I get it.  This is like wossname that decided HE wanted the domain name on account of he deserved it more.

Okay, Dok, now I'm finally interested.

Tell me more about this particular chapter in Discordian History.

"Teen builds working nuclear fusion reactor in Memphis home"

As per the article:

“Some kids spend their time on social media, other kids spend their time playing video games. When it comes to 14-year-old Jackson Oswalt, his time is spent in a laboratory working on a nuclear fusion reactor.

The Memphis teen finished his reactor and achieved fusion at the age of 13. He’s regarded by experts as the youngest in America – maybe even the world – to accomplish it. Jackson built a steel machine made up of vacuums, pumps and chambers that is capable of smashing atoms together through force in a smoking hot plasma center that releases a burst of fusion energy. If you’ve ever wondered how the sun and other stars are powered, the process within Jackson’s nuclear fusion reactor is comparable.

He began working on the fusion reactor at 12 years old, after concluding that he didn’t want to dedicate his leisure time solely to playing games like Fortnite. He began scouring the Internet for nuclear-related things because that’s what he says held his interest. Yes — at 12 years old.”

Here's the link: https://www.foxnews.com/science/teen-builds-working-nuclear-fusion-reactor-in-memphis-home

I'm pretty sure the kid with the “Baking Soda and Vinegar Volcano” won't be beating this young man at the next Memphis Science Fair.
