There is an upside to Paris

Hilton, that is. Word is, Barron Hilton, patriarch of the Hilton family, has been so embarrassed by his granddaughter's antics, that he decided to give 97% of his fortune to charity on his passing. To clean up the family name, no doubt.

I believe future beneficiaries of Hilton's philanthropy owe Paris a debt of gratitude. And no, you dont have to boink her to show your appreciation.

I had 2 cameras stolen in 2007: my Olympus FE100 digicam and my OM2n. Long story. I loved the super-macro function of the relatively low-tech 4 megapixel FE100 which was a bit quirky at times -- the software sometimes focused on the wrong thing -- but when it's on, it's on. I had lots of plans for the OM2n: buying it a new flash, a wide-angle lens, and a 135 mm lens but that's over now. I hope it found a new owner who knows how to use it.

What I have left are my Olympus XA2 which is in its final stages of usefulness since its shutter is starting to go, and a previously owned Canon IXY 450 4 megapixel digital camera. Four megapixels is more than enough for decent photos. According to professional photographer Ken Rockwell, a 3 MP camera pretty much looks the same as a 6 MP camera, even when blown up to 12 x 18. All those megapixels camera companies are dumping onto their cameras are just a ploy to make the average consumer think that theyre getting a better camera, and so charge them more. For the average photographer who won't plan on getting prints larger than A4 size, 4 megapixels is plenty. More isnt better.

Here are a few pictures I took with my clunkers. Happy New Year.

Muslim kid saves Jewish kids from beating by thugs in the Christmas mood.
He was mystified as to why the men became so outraged when the women
and their male friends wished them a "Happy Chanukah" while they were
yelling "Merry Christmas" on the train car.
Well, it's Jesus' birthday so we celebrate it the best way we can. By beating up Jews and Muslims. Halleluiah! You want some? Come git some!

Gilbert alerted state health officials, a decision that led
investigators to realize that a new, apparently more virulent form of a
virus that usually causes nothing worse than a nasty cold was
circulating around the United States. At least 1,035 Americans in four
states have been infected so far this year by the virus, known as an
adenovirus. Dozens have been hospitalized, many requiring intensive
care, and at least 10 have died.

Da Vinci code

It seems that Leonardo's secret is really the fact that he's, no, not gay, that's not a secret, but his secret is really the fact that he's... an Arab.
Professor Luigi Capasso, an anthropologist who led the team, said the
central whorl of the [Leo's] fingerprint was a common pattern in the Middle

"Around 60 per cent of the Middle Eastern population have the same structure," he said.
What a twist this puts in the whole Priory of Sion thing if Leonardo were really a Semite (Arab or Hebrew)! I can see Dan Brown frantically taking notes for a sequel. (And Dan? Da Vinci isnt his family name. So technically, The Da Vinci Code is a stupid title. Every person born in Vinci at the time can call himself da Vinci. So if it isnt too late, call the sequel The Leonardo Code. Ok?)

Raising kids

I totally agree with this Scientific American article. Parents who keep harping on how special their kids are almost always end up raising obnoxious kids.


You just can't trust them. Looks like the National Geographic has been taking... liberties... with their scholars' translation of the so-called Gospel of Judas. Tut-tut. [wags finger]
Several of the translation choices made by the society’s scholars fall
well outside the commonly accepted practices in the field. For example,
in one instance the National Geographic transcription refers to Judas
as a “daimon,” which the society’s experts have translated as “spirit.”
Actually, the universally accepted word for “spirit” is “pneuma ” — in
Gnostic literature “daimon” is always taken to mean “demon.”

Stay together and save the planet...

... or in other words, HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Scientists have quantified for the first time the extent to which divorce damages the environment. The researchers found that the combined use of electricity across the two new households created rose 53% while water use was up by 42%.
This is serious research, folks.

And in the You Just Can't Win department, banning smoking in pubs and restaurants will one day kill us all.

Pubs are likely to pump hundreds of thousands of tons
of additional carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as a result of the
smoking ban.Policy advisers predict that
emissions from patio heaters in pubs and restaurants will increase from
22,200 tons of greenhouse gases a year to up to 282,000 tons - the
equivalent of flying a jumbo jet 171 times around the Earth.

sounds familiar

read this book's synopsis.

Now this, on the other hand...

... is my idea of science. Some surfer dude has written a paper on a possible 'Theory of Everything' that eluded Einstein. The current candidate is string theory, which is just story telling with lots of math. The theory isnt testable. This new guy's theory though, is.
So far, the interactions predicted by the complex geometrical
relationships inside E8 match with observations in the real world. And
it could be possible to test predictions. "How cool is that?" he says.

Dude, seriously

I thought you guys were just being facetious, and I was ready to laugh along but it turns out you were serious.
Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical
discovery by Oxford scientists that sweeps away one of the key
objections to the mind boggling and controversial idea.
Mathematics aint reality. In math, you can divide a pizza into smaller and smaller slices: 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, ... 1/n, where n is some infinitely large number, the pizza slice getting smaller and smaller and approaches zero. Try doing that to a real pizza. You'll reach a pizza that is one 'pizza atom' thin (assuming that you can get a knife less than a 'pizza atom' thin), and guess what happens when you slice that? Youll release energy in the nucleus and you won't be able to divide it anymore because it'll be all over the place.

These scientists...They invented a Boogeyman and now theyre scared of their imaginary creature.
Astronomers may have unwittingly hastened the end of the universe by simply looking at it, according to a new theory.
You have to read the whole thing--it aint long. Suffice it to say that today's science sounds more and more like story-telling. For one thing, Dark Energy (capitalized for effect) doesnt exist in any observable form. It just exists in a mathematical equation. It's just something added to an equation so that it'll come out right, a scientist's way of saying, "I have no idea what's going on, but this'll look good on my resumé. And look! I even have the math."

Im not knocking Math, but scientists and other technocrats--that includes you, economists--seem to confuse math with reality, and story-telling with science.

your toy just got famous

must ... sue ... you

in the spirit of being threatened with a lawsuit, here's a dead-on article about the suit-happy mentality in this country.

must ... have ... gun

US Supreme Court may re-examine 2nd Amendment.

Washington, which is also home to the president and the government, has interpreted the amendment to mean that there is a collective right to bear arms for those who are part of a police force or a security force.

But since 1976, it has banned residents from carrying handguns, although they are allowed to keep a rifle or hunting gun in their homes, providing it is locked and not loaded.

For millions of Americans though, and especially the powerful gun lobby represented by the National Rifle Association, the second amendment guarantees the right of every American citizen to own any gun, with few limits.

wow. if the SC suddenly decides to amend the Amendment (with Supervisor Release), would we expect a nutcase to sneak inside the SC Building, gunning down most of the Justices before security officers stop him? sounds like a plot for the NRA and Hollywood! wooooohoooooo! call Tom "Looney Tune" Cruise! he needs a career right about now!!

go play outside

your TV Show Deathwatch

since Battlestar Galactica has not been updated yet, this only means there will be no more episodes, leaving everything in a cliffhanger until the strike is done, and almost of all of the cast will slowly migrate to Bionic Woman (in episodes that may not be filmed either). nyahahahahaha!


"It is already known that curvaceous women live longer and that men find them more attractive but the new research suggests that they are also cleverer."
The article says scientists found out that men's attraction to women with curves is based on something more than physical. These science geeks really need to get out more. But to clue them in: Yes, it's based on something purely physical. That Omega-3 finding is pure crap. We dont take a sample of the fat from a women's thighs before we are attracted to them.

Excuse me but... HAHA-fucking-HA!!
Scientists a step closer to steering hurricanes
So says a breathless headline from UK's Telegraph newspaper. The science nerds say they can steer hurricanes away from major cities. Nice. Steer them into what? Minor cities? Look I think your enthusiasm is inspiring but a typhoon or hurricane is a very complex thing. Havent you heard of the Butterfly effect? You can't account for all aspects of a hurricane much less control it. Methinks youre confusing your computer models for real life.

But let's say the science is sound. You sprinkle tire dust on the hurricane and have orbiting satellites blast it with death rays from space to heat it up and weaken the hurricane. First of all, this death ray thing isnt cheap. Youll have to fund it using taxpayer money that can be better used elsewehere. Second of all, you think countries like China, or Russia, or some other aspiring superpower would say, 'Sure, go right ahead and place that microwave deathray machine in orbit'? Fat chance of that happening. The thing will lead to an arms race.

Not thought through, I must say. Entertaining, but it's bollocks.

James Watson has always been an asshole. This shit proves it.
One of the world's most eminent scientists was embroiled in an
extraordinary row last night after he claimed that black people were
less intelligent than white people and the idea that "equal powers of
reason" were shared across racial groups was a delusion.
First of all, Jim, there are a lot of factors that determine intelligence. And there are different kinds of intelligence. The trouble with you scientists is that youre always trying to reduce the irreducible to what you think is the most basic component, in this case, the gene. What about poverty? Malnutrition? Corruption in governments such that not enough resources are spent on education? And what do you think about Asians? Are we inferior to you Westerners, too?

What a crock of pseudoscience.

An executive for a recording industry leader has told a court that consumers do not have the right to copy the music they purchase onto a PC as a backup.
Now this is the kind of statement that won't win you mega-corporations any fans. Sure I get it. We don't own the music we purchase. What we own is a license to play it. Yada yada yada. We get it. But to dictate to us how we play it, arent we being a tad dictatorial, Ms. Pariser? I bought the CD. I dont bring a CD player with me everywhere. I bring an iPod, or a laptop. And youre telling me I can't make a copy of the music I bought to play when and where I please? Screw you. It's lameass statements like that that drive us to stop buying your music. Aside from the fact that your music sucks.

According to this, there are twice as many men as women on the brightest 2% of the population.

Not so fast, though, hoss. It also says there are twice as many men as women in the least intelligent 2%.

How to explain this?
One theory holds that men seek to boost their intelligence, to make themselves
more attractive to females, while women’s chances of reproducing depend less
on their perceived intelligence.
That theory of course is poppycock. Men's motivation for boosting intelligence is not to make themselves more attractive to women. How many books have you read for the express purpose of being more attractive to the opposite sex, eh? These science nerds, sometimes I dont know what planet theyre on. Men dont boost their intelligence to be more attractive. Everyone knows that in order to achieve that, you boost your physique.

Why do men seek to boost their intelligence then? For its own sake, hoss. For its own sake. Now hand me that beer.

The Dutch are doing great

Im sure it's a sign of a country's progress when one of its top universities is doing research on how a bicycle works.
For nearly 150 years, scientists have been puzzled by the bicycle. How on earth is it possible that a moving bicycle can, all by itself, be so stable? Researchers of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), working with colleagues from Cornell University and the University of Nottingham, UK, believe they have now found the ultimate model of the bicycle.
Let me clue you in, science guys, that is if you would take the advice from a non-scientist from a third-world country. It isnt the bicycle that's making it stable. It's the fella riding it. Youre investigating the wrong thing. Shee-friggin-eesh!!

Well, now

Another witness comes forward with testimony on the 'pulling' of WTC 7. This was the building that wasnt hit but fell oh so neatly into its own footprint after the Twin Towers collapsed.

I remember that videotape of Osama in a cave where they gloated and praised God for the Twin Towers' collapse. He said according to their people's calculations, only the floors above where the planes hit would collapse. The fact that the entire structure of the Twin Towers collapsed, again neatly into their own footrpints, he attributed to divine intervention.

Well there couldve been intervention, but it sure wasnt divine.

Trans-dimensional gaming

Numerous reports like this have been cropping up everywhere, and the latest is this Chinese guy.
A man in southern China appears to have died of exhaustion after a three-day Internet gaming binge, state media said Monday.
Pfsh! They arent dead. They just crossed over into the alternate universe where the game resides so they can experience it first-hand without the keyboard, mouse, and monitor interface. Nothing like holding that sword, donning that armor, and rescuing that damsel in the high tower. Or racing against the best drivers in F1. The best thing to do is hold off on the autopsy and embalming for at least a couple of days just in case the gamer decides to return to our dimension. And they have to be made aware of the 48-hour time limit. The internet cafe doesnt have unlimited storage space, you know. If the 48 hour limit passes and said gamer still hasnt returned, then declare him legally dead. Dead to our dimension at least. He's probably having the time of his life in the other one.

Really, is MTV still relevant?

There was once a time when music videos were being hailed as a new art form, short films based on popular music, and MTV ushered in the new medium with The Buggles' Video Killed the Radio Star. Soon it started to take over. Gone were the days when the music was all that mattered. Now it was all about marketing, and image, and packaging. Artists were now commodities, and individuality gave way to homogeneity. Rock was no longer rebellious. It turned into boring mainstream and one band sounds like another. And videos turned so boring that MTV itself showed less and less of them, opting for shows that featured stupid human tricks.

And as a tribute to that downward spiral, MTV keeps churning out its Video Music Awards. And as if to rub it into the collective faces of what counts as their fans--fans whose tastes they themselves have created--they have foisted this chick on all of them.

And even they were bored.

Mr. Timberlake, in his acceptance speech when he won for some award, said, "I want to challenge MTV to play more videos!" He couldnt have been more wrong. More videos won't revitalize the music industry. More doesnt equal better. It all starts with the music, then after that talent. Bigger budgets and special effects won't do it. Dancing sluts won't do it either. MTV, to really revitalize popular music, should disappear.

Speaking of porn

This really isnt about porn. This is about our rights, dammit! Thousands have died so you can enjoy your porn collection. No one, not even the government, has a right to confiscate them. Let's hear it for this freedom-loving patriot!


It aint just factory workers

It turns out microwave popcorn can kill you, too.

I dont know about you, but real, pure creamery, cholesterol rich butter is still best for popcorn. Why someone would settle for the synthetic, chemical butter is beyond me. Pop your corn normally, place a huge dab of butter while hot, put on some porn, and youre good to go.

(Did I say porn? I meant The Sound of Music.)
really!? you don't say! no way!
done DEAL!

ISH #47 (Tuesday Edition)

we all know about celebrities misbehaving. even though we get weary of the tabloid fodder, we still get curious who's the next car wreck. although, somehow the wrecks are more glamorous on the other side of the pond. or maybe its just because i don't live there. our next candidate might be one of those. if not, no harm done (she poses for what they call lads' mags ... that's FHM for you). if so, well, you read it here first.

Is She Hot?


she could look like this and still avoid the scorn heaped upon Brit-Brit. and to think she's a real Brit. and if she does this in Jones Beach, they'd have to cordon off the whole of Long Island. in honor of Labor Day here (wonder if she's a card-carrying member of Labour), here's one to ease your burdens. or maybe not.

See? Let them surf, dammit!

It helps productivity.
American workers stay longer in the office, at the factory or on the farm than their counterparts in Europe and most other rich nations, and they produce more per person over the year.

They also get more done per hour than everyone but the Norwegians, according to a U.N. report released Monday, which said the United States "leads the world in labor productivity."

oh well. should i be surprised?
good. whiny problem child, watch out!

it just gets harder

back to school.

New Jersey is an enigma. being the fictional (hello, Tony) and real life (hello, you ... goombahs) home to mobsters (and Springsteen. and Bon Jovi.), it ranks among the richest U.S. states (and even with all that undeclared income). but then it also boasts of three of the most dangerous cities in America, despite also having a city ranked #1 as the safest.

so it just means, you may be rich, but you're not really safe.

prison break. not.

according to this study, despite the general decline of crime rates, there is still an increasing trend in imprisonment rates. there were about 2.25 million Americans in U.S. prisons (as of December last year), which counts for 1/4 of the world's inmates (is that counting Guantanamo too?). that magic number dwarfs even the population of several countries, like Estonia and some African states.

here's an interesting stat: a third of that 2.25M are violent criminals, while the rest are just plain vanilla. so instead of clogging jails, can the US use these 750,000 psychos to fight their overt and covert wars instead? they might win too. i'm just saying (hello, they have been doing that, but not on a larger scale). the real problem with that is controlling them. well, that's easy: implant them with devices that give them an aneurysm if they disobey. that'll teach 'em. if this works, the military won't even have to worry about recruitment or body bags or public opinion. you do the crime, you do the time - fighting for Uncle Sam.

somebody, somewhere is already writing a movie script.

a helping hand

well, no, sorry, you're too late. the girl already "found" her camera.

hey, is she hot?

what do we need to calm down our fans and readers? why, a dose of girl-next-door beauty, of course. but there's still that chance that they won't be calm, if you know what i mean ...

Is She Hot?


if she were your neighbor, wouldn't you be waking up early to catch her like this? she could be interested in you - just make sure you brush your teeth and wash your face, barbarian. are you an animal lover? then chat her up - she loves puppies! not to mention being paparazzi-friendly, she's almost uninteresting. almost.

Im thinking of giving up rice

About 140 million people, mainly in developing countries, are being poisoned by arsenic in their drinking water, researchers believe.
The first signs that arsenic-contaminated water might be a major health issue emerged in the 1980s, with the documentation of poisoned communities in Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal.
Since then, large-scale contamination has been found in other Asian countries such as China, Cambodia and Vietnam, in South America and Africa.

Great. And we're importing rice from China and Vietnam. I fondly remember the days when we were actually exporting rice. And other countries would send their best agriculture students to study here to improve their rice production. Now we're exporting people.

The list so far

No this is a different list. Not the updated list of educators youve learned to love.

This is the list of companies suing Google to date. Good luck, idiots. Google owns your ass already. You just dont know it.

ISH #45 (Tuesday Edition)

the last few weeks of summer ... enjoy the heat and the sweltering humidity. your only hope may be thoughts of lying on a hammock on a South Pacific island, being served pina coladas by our next candidate.

Is She Hot?


she has obviously no qualms letting you have a feast for your eyes, and she'll even do some tweaking if you want. and if you want her to cross into NSFW territory, that's no problem as well.
