Wednesday Highlights

Well, I hope everyone (who wanted to) had a good Christmas celebration.

  1. Papua.
  2. Stall speed of 45 mph.
  3. What do you predict Mr blog-pundit? I predict lots of confounded predictions.
  4. To the Happy Holidays (Holidays = Holy Days btw) vs Merry Christmas debate, Orthodox tradition has this as its Nativity declamation (which is done in a declamation/response form … Pascha/Easter the declamation/response is Christ is Risen/He is Risen Indeed). So, if you want to push the Merry Christmas humbugger’s buttons declaim “Christ is born!” instead … if you don’t get the response (Glorify him!) after a pause supply it yourself.
  5. Why saftey nets should have lots of suck.
  6. Needed, more cheeky mavericks.
  7. At the same time you complain they couldn’t make this show any more … it is still being broadcast (and likely watched).
  8. Let’s see, a few days ago there was a “strong indicator” that wasn’t. Here is another indicator … perhaps strong.

Gun control

  1. So, do you think it new regulations will pass (or even be voted on by) Congress?
  2. Those “big” effects that gun controllers … all that new regulation and laws they want for .1 to .3 per 10,000?
  3. And … what prohibition would get you.
  4. And a congress-critter doesn’t actually realize that women own/buy guns too? He apparently believes the CT shooter’s mom was “testosterone fueled”.
  5. Apparently to the irrational liberal “left in the car” means “used”.

    I’m ok for it except for the claim that TV has gone down hill.

    First, those with a fetish for collapse metaphors have to contend with the logical implications of collapse…. For some reason everyone tells me I’ve lost weight since my youth. At some point I started asking people how much did I weigh ten years ago? Four hundred pounds? If TV’s been going down hill for decades, then it must have been pretty close to the Platonic ideal in, say, 1949 or 1950? I don’t think so.

    Second, we are living in a golden age of TV. What’s notable about TV from the past is how crappy it was versus now. Watching shows like The Sopranos, walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica, NYPD Blue or even comedies like Seinfield, Big Bang Theory or Everybody Love’s Raymond you see a huge contrast to the 80’s and before. Don’t get me wrong, there was a lot of good TV in the past. The original Star Trek, the Twilight Zone, Ben Casey were all shows I loved and stand up. I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners were likewise great.
