McCain you are a son of a bitch
sds: onemoretimewithfeeling: shiningstar: To the contrary, I actually assume that she [Palin] is pro-life. And that’s just one of the reasons why I have little respect for her and this situation. What I should have said was that I hope she gets an unwanted pregnancy… period. That will teach her to consider the meaning of ‘choice.’ Also, twas a joke. Hah. I wouldn’t say an unwanted...

sds: Exhibit A: “If Barack doesn’t win, (half of) this nation is going to be crushed. Just completely, emotionally devastated in a way I don’t even think September 11, 2001 managed to do.” Exhibit B: I am going to move to another country if he loses….I will have lost ALL FAITH and will be CERTAIN that our country is afraid to vote for a black man. there could be NO OTHER REASON that Obama...

“There was a mistake in a recipe for apple cake. Instead of calling for two pinches of nutmeg it said 20 nutmeg nuts were needed.” […] “At first we thought this would be enough, because we didn’t really think anyone would bake or eat this cake, since so much nutmeg would give it a horrible, bitter taste, and because it is simply not that easy to get hold of that...

In defense of my city
siristar13: I feel the need to tell you all that no mater what the delegates from Colorado are wearing at the DNC (I’ve heard they are all wearing specially designed western wear), we do not wear cowboy attire or ride horses to work. I feel like all this focus about the “west” makes us look like cowboy loving hicks that still travel by stage coach. Also for anyone visiting that has seen the...
Aerogel, the World's Lightest Solid!
davereed: nickmcglynn: Aerogel is made from Silicon Dioxide, the same material as ordinary Glass, only 1,000 times less dense.

It is the lightest and lowest-density solid known to exist, and holds an unbelievable 15 entries in the Guinness Book of World Records, including best insulator...

Pelosi Heckled Everywhere She Goes →
“Elected on the promise to end the war, Pelosi and her Democrats have instead voted repeatedly to fund it until the next administration. Even more galling to the anti-war crowd is that there are even more troops in Iraq under Pelosi’s Congress than there ever were during Republican Congresses. […] “The most remarkable accomplishment of Pelosi’s Congress is that...

Tiny Football Helmets →
“I need 12 tiny football helmets. They can be one color or mulitple and I can paint them. I’m putting together a team of hamsters that play football (the kicker is actually a gerbal but that’s beside the point). As they’ve gotten better the practices have gotten rougher and I’m afraid to risk an injury so I decided I would need to pad them up. I would be willing to...

mattpayton: I agree with the “best” list and sadly, those superficial reasons are all the pros he’s got in my book. “But sorting through the many statements, speeches, and votes that Biden has made over the years—especially on matters related to the Middle East—leaves a slightly confusing impression: Biden is indeed an expert—but a very erratic one. His knowledge notwithstanding, it’s hard to...

America's Hat is in trouble
sds: While catching up on my RSS feeds, I found a post on TechCrunch about the rise in arrests of bloggers. I noted that most of the arrests were in countries that one would expect this sort of thing to occur—China, Egypt, Syria, Iran, etc. A few were in the US, admittedly, but were terrorism or sex-crime related, as opposed to “posting satirical comments about Iran’s leaders” or the vague and...
