Some hope yet: American Idol

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

I just watched the March 28 episode of American Idol (remember, we’re a month behind over here) and was still kinda pissed off that Chris Sligh got dropped. I’ve known it was coming for several weeks, from a news clip on the show I saw on CNN, but that didn’t make it much easier to […]

What year is it again?

Friday, April 20th, 2007

No…not another “I can’t believe this is the 21st century” post…something much simpler!
How do you say/read “2007″?
a) “Two thousand and seven”
b) “Twenty-oh-seven”
I’ve been reminding my students that the second is a perfectly acceptable alternative to the first.
Two reasons for doing this:
1) The second is one syllable shorter. (6:5)
2) The second avoids the ‘th’ sound, which […]

What a boar!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

I’ve been meaning to post this one for a while but have kept forgetting to get round to it.
One of my former students showed up at the beginning of the month and gave me a New Years Card.
OK, sure, it came a bit late…but it was kind of neat and worth the wait, considering that […]

Testing one, two, three…

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

It’s kinda small, but how does this look?

For several years now I’ve been playing around with a 3D modelling app called Cheetah3D, created by a German fellow by the name of Martin Wengenmayer. I originally happened upon it while looking for a program to use in creating models (of fictional spacecraft, etc.) for adding to […]

From his cold, dead hands?

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

OK…now how did that go again…guns don’t kill people?
I wonder if Ole Chuck and the NRA are already booking venues in Blacksburg for their next convention.
From the L.A. Times website:
A convocation, expected to be attended by President Bush, was scheduled for 2 p.m. Bush, who has received condolence calls from foreign leaders, today ordered U.S. […]

Bated anticipation?

Friday, April 13th, 2007

We’ve all used or at least heard used the expression “with bated breath” meaning “in great suspense; very anxiously/excitedly”, right?
Whilst trolling about the Web this evening before shutting down and heading home, I came across a comment on a blog post containing the phrase in the title:
I, for one, wait in bated anticipation for the […]

E pur se muove

Friday, April 13th, 2007

I never realized before now what a wondrous, magical device the gear shift in my car is.
I mean, think about it.
Imagine yourself sitting in your car with it in neutral, pressing down the accelerator. The engine is revving, but you’re not moving, right? Now imagine yourself shifting into drive and depressing the accelerator to exactly […]

AI Update

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

That’s “American Idol”, of course.
Keeping in mind that our broadcasts are about one month behind over here….
I just watched the “Diana Ross” show. I’ve pretty much decided who I think should win.
#1 Melinda
#2 Lakisha
#3 Jordan
If either Melinda or Lakisha doesn’t win, there’s something seriously wrong with the ears of America. Something which I have already […]

A Woman With Balls

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

I watched the first episode of a new TV series last night—new over here, at least—The Closer. I knew I was going to like it when, just a few minutes into the show, title-role character Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson (played by Kyra Sedgwick) looks another character—who has just told her she needn’t be acting like […]

David’s latest obsession: Mark Norris

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

Better watch out, Mark: David’s got a thang for you.
First, in a message entitled “FAQ from our friends“, David quotes something he supposedly received as suggested content for their website:
“if autodynamics proposes such visible effects as the non-additivity of speeds, even for low speeds, why their supporters dont make a simple experiments to test this? […]

Against stupidity, the gods themselves…

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007

Come out looking quite vain.
I don’t know about y’all, but the current little “war in heaven” over in La-La-Lande between Akira, Lucy (in the Sky with Dentures), and David (a different one) has left me with a distinct case of the ho-hums. (My take: OK, we can’t disprove SR on AD grounds, so let’s go […]

Happy Pagan Fertility/Rebirth Holiday!

Sunday, April 8th, 2007

Those of you so minded, remember to chuckle a bit as Paulians worldwide celebrate the Resurrection of their Sun of God.
Or something like that.
(sigh)

I wonder if I can find any chocolate eggs or bunnies anywhere?

New Category

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

I’ve grown weary of adding new entries to the Autodynamics Post Index page here by hand and so have followed Mark’s lead and created a new Autodynamics category. You can find all AD-related posts to date and any future posts by clicking here (or using the link in the categories menu on the right after […]

No, Dipshit, theories are formulated
