Should We Resurrect The Neanderthals?

Read the story HERE.  If I weren’t so tired and my hands weren’t such prunes from just spending an hour and a half in my hot tub outside, I would make a much less juvenile commentary than the one below. Unfortunately, you’ll just have to deal.  Should we bring the neanderthal back?

HELL. YES. Revive those sons of bitches.

And don’t let anyone’s “moral objections” stand in the way of pure, unmitigated awesomeness.

First Alderaan, Now This?

It looks like we’ve found the remains of a distant planet, only evidenced by a dust cloud floating close to a white dwarf named G29-38.  Here’s what New Scientist had to say:

The planet’s outer layers were apparently engulfed by the star’s preceding red giant phase. The core survived but may have been dragged close enough to the subsequent white dwarf to be torn apart by its gravity, creating the dust cloud.

Earth, on the other hand, is likely to be totally vaporised during the sun’s red giant phase billions of years from now.

I call bull shit.  We all know our pop culture history too well to let a story like this just slide by unchallenged.  Say, New Scientist, did the white dwarf happen to look like this?

I think we just witnessed a fully armed and operational battlestation.

That's no white dwarf, it's a spacestation.

Let’s hope this particular white dwarf doesn’t make it to Earth for a few billion years… oh the look of disappointment on their faces when they realize our sun already beat them to the job of destroying us all!  It’ll be priceless.

Epstein-Barr and a Healthy Dose of Age 16

Posted in Books, Creationism, Evolution, Films, Music, Personal, Politics, Religion, Science, Uncategorized, Unmitigated Awesomeness by steelstringed on November 20, 2008

Please, someone give me bamboo shoots to poke underneath my fingernails.  I have nothing to do.  On November 5th, I was diagnosed positive for the Epstein-Barr Virus (relax, it’s only a snake..er…it’s only mono) and it has only been a recent occurrence that my daily temperature has finally failed to hit the 100 + mark.  Elevated liver enzymes are going back down, my spleen is hopefully returning to a normal size, and I only experienced jaundice for 2 days!  However, I’m still not out of the woods.

Yummy yummy in my tummy

Yummy yummy in my tummy

Due to this unfortunate sequence of events, I’ve had to pack up my things, temporarily say goodbye to some friends, and move home to Missouri for a few months in order to rest and recover.  They say relapse is a common tick-box that stupid and overzealous mononites choose to check off once they start feeling even the slightest bit better, and I’m hoping to avoid that fate.  I can sense my immune system gasping for air, even though am no longer in need of a strict 3-hour Tylenol/Motrin rotation, and I feel just peachy most of the day without any kind of medicine at all.

In essence, though, I’m 16 years old and back in high school, and I’m on extended winter break.  I have no apartment, no job, very little cash, and my wonderful mother is cooking up food, busting out the thermometer, and making sure I have an ample supply of Oreos and milk.  It is all well and good; I think you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t like a doctor’s prescription of “sleep and eat, do nothing else,” but it is hard to be away from Nashville, away from music, away from friends.  I am growing anxious already, but maybe once I can get my small studio set-up working here, I will at least find enough comfort so that I don’t have to resort to http://www.bambooheadquarters.com/ to satisfy any masochistic desires.
