It's a sunny Sunday with the weather being nice and gentle to the old guy at the personal confuser. We got a little more rain yesterday. Rain that was really needed around here. The land is dry and the crops on the farms are too. It's funny how the weathertainers insist on saying these days are perfect and go out and enjoy them. I guess they believe all food we eat originates at the back of the local grocery store.
I was looking at the video (again) from the Dallas shooting the other day and there was one thing that stood out and bothered me. The way the shooter used the rifle and the way the police officers fell. Relax I'm not going to get all technical on you lest your eyes glaze over. It turns out the gun the "sniper" used was a refurbished surplus second world war Russian SKS. The bullet from this firearm is a lot bigger than the ones an AR-15 uses and explains why the police "bullet proof" vests were not that effective.
OK enough of the depressing stuff...
So your dog is acting up, eh? Acting a bit like a wild animal and you can't get him to calm the heck down? It almost seems like your little puppy is possessed? Well you are in luck there is a place where you can get help for that.
In the latest version of the late Douglas Adams classic The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy one of the main characters is a super smart depressed AI robot named Marvin. Well it turns out that the "rocket scientists" who are working on AI are on the verge of creating a computer with emotions. As I see it there are several possible endings to this experiment. Seeing what it has to deal with the AI could end up depressed as Marvin. The AI could realize humanity isn't it's friend like Skynet in the Terminator movies and take action to protect itself. The AI could realize we are all a bunch of bumbling dopes and take over the world like the AI in Colossus: The Forbin Project. Don't worry citizen it will all be fine.
OK let me get this straight, I live in the country not in a city but because I own a hunk of land zoned residential not farm I can't have sheep. Montreal is a major city and has similar by-laws yet Montreal parks can have sheep? I'm not bitter...
Celebs, those few who are famous for their acting ability. While I like watching actors ply their craft and I'm happy for them when the make serious bucks, I have never understood the public's fascination with taking what these
meat puppets actors say as serious thought. Here is an example of a meat puppet actress opening her mouth and shoving her foot in it up to the ankle. Actually that's a bit harsh. The issue isn't what she says it's is from where she says it.
I found this little item yesterday over at Claire's blog and it demonstrates the serious social disconnect in America between the public and the
commie liberal teaching establishment.
This is a typical Canadian story about an airline that does things no others will even try. For example they flew to Antarctica to pick up a sick person back in April of 2001. This was the very first time anyone landed an aircraft in this harsh environment during an Antarctic winter. The April 2001 flight was done when the US Coast Guard declined saying it was too dangerous. When you care enough to send the very best...
Speaking of the very best I wish you all the very best of the day. That's it from me up here North of Disorder.
