As much as some of you probably want to know what's going on, I'm certain the vast majority are completely uninterested. And, since I'm not really interested in publicly whining about it all more than I already have, I'll just leave the details off the forums.

The comic I'm going to "take my time on" was supposed to be posted today. I'll finish it off and post it tomorrow. But, I knew early on that it was going to be terribly late. Thus do we get to see Iggy again.

Now, I have to be completely honest here... I appreciate that some of you will want to pass along your well wishes, but I'd rather you internalize them, the power of positive thought and all that. I'm not ill. I just need to take a day off before I accidentally explode at someone over something ridiculously minor. And none of us want that.

That doesn't leave much direction for the thread though huh? Somebody pick a topic. (I feel obligated to mention that the idea of a thread of nothing but potential topics amuses me.)

But what is there really to discuss about pickles in hats? It's a proven fact that they are the ultimate in coolness.

We could talk about Cheney 's 's blood clot (http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2007/04/24/ap3645498.html)... or Nanotechnology (http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2007/04/23/tech-nano-spinal.html).

Or maybe....

Pudding has to be one of my favourite words. It just conjures up memories of warmth, happiness, and a full tummy.

I won't get into black pudding though, it tends to upset too many people when they learn the ingredients. :)

The 8th anniversary edition includes all 13 expansions for $19.95 and the release date was yesterday for retail stores. I discovered 2 things. The release date is the ship date, not the instore date. Almost none of the stores in my area are getting it. The Best Buy noodle I asked about it hadn't even heard of it. One of the three GameStops I went to was expecting it. And hasn't gotten it yet today. I want it now! hehe.

WOW lots of people I know are taking the day off just cuz they need a day off. When I was a kid my mom and doctor always liked referring to those as "can't help it" days...always made me laugh, but days like that do happen. :)

Actually, the proper name for the state is The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantation. The island (yes there is one, it's where Newport is located) was name because the person who "discovered" it (even though there was allready a native population) thought it looked like the island of Rhodes. The other mile and a half of state that is on the mainland is the "Providence Plantation" part. Another interested fact, the Providence RI airport is actually located in Massacusets (whosther I belive, but I could be wrong on the place and the spelling).

And that is what I learned the year I lived in RI.

I think it is time to contemplate the potential abuse of power that is imminent by setting my desk next to the thermostat.

I will begin. Being a 6’2” male of…well insulated…proportions, I am shaped like a 270lb tree trunk, and am prone to overheating. Personally, I am comfortable at a balmy 65. The rest of the office is older and female. They prefer the temperature in the office to give the surface of the sun a run for it’s money. Until working here I never knew what it was like to type wearing asbestos gloves. It is time for the rise of the thermal generating peoples of the world.

The peanut is a nut beucase it grows on a bush its just not a pea

The peanut, or groundnut (Arachis hypogaea) is a species in the legume family Fabaceae native to South America. ... The flowers are a typical peaflower in shape, 2 to 4 cm (¾ to 1½ in) across, yellow with reddish veining. After pollination, the fruit develops into a legume 3 to 7 cm (1 to 2 in) long containing 1 to 3 (rarely 4) seeds, which forces its way underground to mature.

Although a nut in the culinary sense, in the botanical sense the fruit of the peanut is a woody, indehiscent legume or pod and not a nut.

Peanuts are also known as earthnuts, goobers, goober peas, pindas, jack nuts, pinders, manila nuts and monkey balls. (The last of these is often used to mean the entire pod, not just the seeds. In the UK these are sold as monkey nuts.) Wiki Peanut (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peanut)

Peanuts really aren't "nuts", and they don't technically grow on a bush, but underground. It's a legume, which a pea is also. So then, wouldn't it be closer to a pea than a nut?

However the idea of calling peanuts monkey balls is just beyond hilarious to me! :roll:

Woody, hope your day gets better!

my suggestion for topic

recollection of a day off that went wrong or in a direction you wern't expecting

Back when I worked in a fast food place, I left my house thinking it was my day off, when I stopped by my work in the afternoon for something to eat. The manager on duty signals be to talk to him and asks why didn't I come in.
After looking at the schedule, I just smiled and said "You mean this isn't Tues.?"

Needless to say he wasn't amused but didn't fire me for it. Just wound up not getting any day off requests filled for 2 weeks.

April 24th, 2007, 03:48 PM
Sadly, you were not the only one to take a day off. I should have and in retrosepct I should have looking at what the next few weeks holds for me, but alas, I am here. Granted, here is sitting in a nice little office of my own and posting to internet forums, but here none the less. :)

I want to talk about the future of lunar missions from NASA and the concern for solar radiation effects on crew and devices. Although, the only thing that comes to mind when I think about it is the Earth & Beyond game I played some years back and how I always wanted to attack the aliens in the area.

April 24th, 2007, 04:08 PM
Honestly I think that new lunar missions won't push the limits of technology like the Apollo programs did... by the time our rocket launches off, the "new technology" would be 5 years outdated, as compared to Apollo when they had to solve problems with technology which did not even exist back then, and was bleeding edge when they launched.

And radiation damage is always overhyped... I mean, our city gets maybe 10 millirem per year (made up, but probably at about the mark) from the radium in our water, and the EPA says we have to spend $30 million to clean it up in a town of about 40,000. Detectable effects from radiation begin at roughly at 25 rem (that's 25,000 millirem) one-time doses, and it has been estimated that for our $30 million, we will save maybe four people over the next hundred years from cancer. For this ridiculous expense prompted by fear of radiation, we could send those four cancer patients first class to Beth Israel and have dozens of cancer experts lavish care upon them, for heaven's sake! Feed the poor (this is in our town)? Yeah, we could do it with that money. Give every last high school student a laptop for their stay? Sure, and give them all WoW accounts and home desktops while we're at it.

Only danger about orion is lofting the mulitple nuclear warheads into orbit that are used to power it....think of the mess if the launch from the ground failed? With the discovery of frozen water on the dark side of the moon, an Ion drive would work great, with chemical thrusters for landing and take off as well as entering and leaving orbit, you could refuel on the moon for the trip back or to travel further out into space, but we need a bigger space station in orbit to launch from.

How about, the European Astronomers have discovered another earth, it's five times the size of our own, would this mean that the Big Macs would be 5 times as big too, or would there just be five times as many McDonalds restaurants?

pie > cake.

Cakes in USA have frosting on them. A sort of sugar-grease with food coloring and artifical flavoring added to it. Was a bit of a shock when I moved here. I have a very low sugar tolerance. Doesn't take much to make me "all sugared out" and feeling rather yucky.

Back home, in Sweden, we use whipped cream instead. And fresh fruit, canned fruit, nuts, candy and/or chocolate as garnish. Depending on what season it is and the age of the person the cake is for.

I wonder how cakes in the US ended up with frosting on them? I also had cake, once, in Germany and that one had whipped cream on it. What do they put on cakes in your country?

April 25th, 2007, 07:30 AM
Americans put sugar on their cakes, and their cakes are also made of just pretty much pure sugar. Which is why I don't really eat cake! (in America)

April 25th, 2007, 07:52 AM
All cake is not created equal. Most store bought cakes are usually rubbish. They're so sweet the smell alone makes me nauteous. So, to assume all American cakes are like that is a bit of an unfair sweeping generalization.

April 25th, 2007, 07:55 AM
You are correct, and usually I do not make such generalized assumptions, And if an american makes a cake from scratch they might not make a pure sugar cake, but usually that's becuase it's a different style cake other than american, but as far as American cakes go, birthday ones for instance, they are primarily the worst, are just all pure sugar!


Box cakes aren't as bad, but still not really good for you either :)

I vote for Pie.

Most mass-produced cakes are awful! When my family does cakes, we use an old recipe, and always max the spices and min the sugar, and then we use natural sugar, not bleached.

We make some awesome cake. Mine always come out flat, but they're still delicious!


Cake or death?


April 25th, 2007, 11:14 AM
hmm, cakes originally were flat! And they did originate without the icing. I used to remember the story of how it got added, but now it escapes me. I enjoy a good cake from time to time, but they are hard to come by, unless I make it from scratch myself, so I'll just as soon take pie...then again....massively produced, store-bought pies aren't so great either :\

Mass-produced baked goods are almost universally horrid.

They seem to think that if it's sugary enough, you won't notice that it tastes mostly like sweetened cardboard.

My family does a wicked apple pie. Award-winning, even (literally: my brother nad I used to get blue ribbons at the local county fairs and would have won, but they always gave it to the dopes with the easy copout lattice crusts, and my mom recently took top honors for pies at her local bake show). The apples just melt in your mouth. Mmmmm.....
