THE AMAZING RANDI (YET AGAIN, BUT WHY NOT?!)
Tom Galloway: “A bit belated, but [those of your readers who’ve become intrigued with him] might want to look at this video of the Amazing Randi at the Googleplex back in 2007. At the time, I was a Googler and part of the @Google speaker coordinating group and […]
So this ISIS/ISIL thing is either the end of the world — if the nut jobs who’ve decided it’s they who’ve been called to fulfil the Koran’s End Times prophesy manage to get their way (which includes drawing us into a ground war of civilizations) — or a horrible blight on mankind that will play itself out […]
THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED WITH WHEELTUG
Classic photo. “Oops.”
CONGRESSMAN AARON SCHOCK
In case you missed the link Friday. Too funny.
Thursday, I linked to a report of Governor Brownback overturning a ban so that Kansas could once again discriminate against its gay state employees. Jon Stewart’s take on this (and Alabama) […]
THE DARK SIDE
You thought you’d never see the dark side of the moon, let alone on my ridiculous little web site — but here it is. (Technically “the far side,” as it’s only dark to us.)
A SIDE OF THE PRESIDENT YOU HAVEN’T SEEN EITHER
You have GOT to see this video. Not […]
This analysis seems to ignore legal fees and operating expenses . . . it costs money to appeal lawsuits and to stay in business . . . but nonetheless reinforces my resolve to hang on. The worst case may be less than a total loss, with the possibility of a fourfold or greater […]
MEASLES AND THE MEDIA
I’ve always been a fan of Face The Nation’s Bob Schieffer and once made him laugh. (There’d been some chaos in the stock market and, asked where it was headed next, said, “I haven’t got a clue.” He thought I was kidding.) Mr. Schieffer’s elegant under-two-minute commentary on vaccines this past […]
There is a reason most Russians have dashboard cameras — and reasons you should too.
But there is no accounting for the way so many Russians walked away from these accidents. Yikes!
A day after presenting to the IATA conference, described here yesterday, WheelTug’s CEO flew to New York to present at […]
Friday I posted this free 54-minute documentary (Psychics! Faith-healers! Spoon-benders! — all exposed) and asked: “Is there anything more fun than this?”
. . . answering that, yes, there would be one thing: backing a 737 out from the gate without a tug and start-stopping down the conga line without having to light the main engines and ride the brakes.
There are […]
Tom: “I’d never heard of the Amazing Randi before Tuesday’s post but found this free 54-minute documentary.”
☞ Psychics! Faith-healers! Spoon-benders! All exposed. Is there anything more fun than this?
Yes, there would be one thing:
Backing a fully loaded commercial jet out from the gate without a tug and inching it along the conga […]
Jim Burt: “Plus ca change . . . In 1941, while Congress was holding hearings on whether to renew the peacetime draft and extend the service of the first year’s draftees, who had only been brought in for twelve months of training, there was a gathering of Republican congressmen at the Army-Navy Club in Washington at […]
