Ranch Style Greeting's Infodel!

Still have not finished, but a few comment's now.

One of the most interesting read's I enjoyed had to be New Scientist ... On Morality: Science making us Better. I was just impressed by this piece in particular!

SE Bastard's piece on mom shaking baby to death ... 2nd degree murder? and she is addicted? what's next, should we cry for her?(mom) Thank goodness for abortion, perhap's sterilization would also help.

A very nice collection of photo's/ link's from "Stay A While" on the Andromeda piece ... actually quite a bit of recent image's we have been able to enjoy due to the tech's of today ... on one hand I would love to be able to share with Galileo ... but would fear he would have a cardiac arrest just from the thrill and enjoyment! :)

Pharyngula's piece on the Leg Lamp ... love that lamp, it would fit quite well in my home collection! Great looking leg! ... beside's .. I love stocking's and heel's. :) I dont seem to see any connection to xmas though, as far as insulting to it(?)

SE Bastard's post on the Halloween light show ... excellent piece of art there!

TPM Houston Teabag's, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... easy to talk all that shit online ... I'd like to see them go into 4th, or 5th Ward in Houston or the Height's and talk all that shit! :)

Nice piece from Konovalenko as well (which I expect) on restoring immune system to a younger state.

I will add a few more in another since this might not take it all.

Thanx especially for the Creationist Museum piece in Glen Rose Texas ... havent heard a bloody thing about that ... and that's only an hour and a half drive or so from my home in NW Dallas (maybe 80 miles top's?). I went to YouTube just to view a couple museum's which were in Cincinnati/ Covington area and some other one in England (London?) because I wanted to see one for entertainment. And possibly post for one of my art posting's, however so far what I seen in those two town's was not really too impressive as they were talked about being, as far as any kind of art actually, rather a bit bland actually, I reckon I just expected much more, I mean they say they are "creationist's", that was not very "creative" (what I seen in the video's), is my point. But since Glen Rose is so close and I drive Texas quite a bit, this can be an easy visit. However if it's some ridiculous entry admission price, I'll pass.

The Sun News piece on the poor oloe Guy killed for shagging a donkey ... what a bad trip Guy ... I mean ... like if it isnt bad enough having to dress in lingerie and slipper's just to get laid by a donkey, which must have been one Hell of an aroma as well ... then get killed after the climatic event ... geeezz! My heart goes out to the victim!

Funny short story ... I knew this old man (80 year's old) who grew up out in the wood's of East Texas and he once told me a story of how he had to shag cows to get laid. I asked why?, trying to hold back from laughing, he sounded so sad. He said, there was hardly no women, and most were white women (he was black) and that if you messed with them back them, you could kiss your black ass goodbye, if you got caught, so it was common to shag cows when there wasnt a woman. One day I was walking up to him, and made a "Moo" sound ... just as a joke after that ... But said ... "Just joking John". Actually I knew one of his daughter's ... and wow! what a knockout she was ... you can bet her mom wasnt a cow! :)

Later Guy ... have a Great Halloween! :)
