I can has new address?

Indeed, I do. Does. Did. As of noon.

It's pretty bare for the nonce. I must adjust that. Perhaps I will blog more about my retreat from the center of the Earth.

Perhaps not. Moving is hard.

Draft of a Letter to the ADN

You know, I've read the book Carl Kincaid refers to in his letter (16 April 2008), but I have also read more than the book ("Icons of Evolution" by Jonathan Wells).

Does he really have any idea what scientists would say if they found deformities in the fossil record? He says some really weird things, like evolution must provide millions of transitional forms out of necessity (if we had millions of transitional forms, instead of the many hundreds of thousands, would he insist evolution then had to provide billions of transitional forms?), and that it would be said to be "475 million years old," which leads me to suspect he doesn't have any real grasp of what scientists would actually say. He also accuses scientists of faking data--which is awkward since any faked data, interestingly, is easily sussed out by scientists looking to duplicate results. What fakery have creationists like Jonathan Wells ever revealed? Every time I ask questions like that, all I get are crickets. Oh, I could go on, but Kincaid's letter is just bizarre.

But back to the book, which I recommend reading (along with a thorough rebuttal: ), for no other reason than it makes it obvious why nobody gets their science from creationists.

All of a sudden, everything is terribly expensive.

As in: either I get the car fixed, or move closer to work. As in, now. I don't even get paid until Monday.

$1800 for auto repairs. This is not going to happen. The vehicle's not worth that. That's even if I had that kind of money (six+ months of working at a newspaper+other economic factors == zero savings. Do not pass go. Do not collect anything.)

I'm looking into just getting the starter replaced, assuming I can find one for less than $400. I need to get the car from Anchorage to the Valley, so that it may receive a proper redneck burial.

I'm really tired of this. When I die, I hope I get to kick Henry Ford in the balls at least once.

Not my birthday, just a joke, sorry I lied...

...but I thought it would get me treats. For the record, today is not my birthday, merely a day in which my car ceased to work on me and Alaskans forgot how to drive to such an extent that I spent over two hours getting into Anchorage this morning.

Which reminds me--Alaskans really need to get off their sorry collective asses in endorsing a commuter train between Anchorage and the Valley, instead of whining about how high gas prices are.

Rocky Shores Ahead

That is to say, this site now has a mascot. In 3D. In HO-scale. In plastic.

"Clever Girl" Or should that be _girls_?

Thank goodness these birds don't want to take over the world.

Fortunately, you can still distract them with something shiny.

Quack. Quack. Evil Ducks.

The Anchorage Street Irregulars Skepticists are about to remeet/meet again for the first time this Friday.

Location, location, location: Twin Dragon Mongolian Bar-B-Que, for 7:00 PM, Friday, April 11, on the corner of 15th and Gambell (612 E 15th Ave; 276-7535). (Just don't ask me for directions, as I only barely know where I am right this minute, and certainly couldn't give you directions here).

I'll be there, as will some other (ir)regulars, and you shouldn't miss this opportunity to JOIN US.

Corvid's Caw

And our triumvirate of four is now complete. For your convenience, I have added the Caw Box to it's rightful place in the Northern Lights box.

I shall continue to update my bloggy roll, but all nonlocal additions are going to have to wait. (Just a little longer.)

A Big Box of Animator Crack!

Arrived Wednesday, but didn't get a chance to pick it up until Saturday:

Oh! Could this be that box of animator crack I ordered?

Could be! What's inside?

Flawless performances!

Fifteen films (actually 14, with one supplemental disc, for a total of seventeen discs)!

Yes, DVDs can suck it. I really like LaserDisc.

I Deeded Theses

Again, for no really good reason, other than I'm procrastinating. DELAYING the INEVITABLE.

You might say.


I kind of like how the Stegosaurus is sort of floating in space. Like a milk dud!
