    Dwayne Hickman and Dobie Gillis must be incensed.

    An inside joke for those of us old enough to know what great TV was.

    Some of it was great. Most of it was crap that the inventor of the incredible device forbid his own children from watching.

    It’s a long story, which has never been told, and, probably never will be. :(

    Fuck!

    I didn’t know there are at least 28 monumental-sized bronze casts of this sculpture around the world.

    Stick to the corporate sound-bites!

    Larry, I must be missing all the “thinking” that is going on by this administration. Show me all the thinking.

    I think (qualitatively), therefore I am ((qualitative).

    3 Reasons Science Deniers Are Freaking Out About Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos”

    Writing at the Media Research Center’s Newsbusters blog, Jeffrey Meyer critiques a recent Tyson appearance on Late Night With Seth Myers. “Meyers and deGrasse Tyson chose to take a cheap shot at religious people and claim they don’t believe in science i.e. liberal causes like global warming.”

    … Actually, as Tyson explained on our Inquiring Minds podcast, Cosmos is certainly not anti-religion. As for characterizing global warming as simply a “liberal cause”: In a now famous study finding that 97 percent of scientific studies (that bother to take a position on the matter) agree with the idea of human-caused global warming, researchers reviewed 12,000 scientific abstracts published between the years 1991 and 2011.

    God is creative enough to equip some of us with minds that are only capable of conceiving of a very short lived universe. 6 thousand years, My god, I’ve lost track of my lunch appointment for tomorrow!

    A sparrow cannot be expected to soar like a pterodactyl.

    The guy who delivers our bread every day throws a bunch of it to the pigeons. The seagulls – who are much bigger – won’t come close. The sparrows are like Chihuahuas. You wouldn,t want to mess with that!

    Seagulls are courteous birds who know their lessers still need sustenance.

    The vultures of wall street…not so much.

    I haven’t had to buy a loaf since whenever. I get the expired stuff from my good friend in the morn; an Iraq vet from way back in the day.

    You couldn’t meet a nicer person.

    The sitcoms from the 50′s and 60′s dealt with more serious issues then we see today in the endless forensic cop, talent shows and CNN. Here’s proof.

    Do you ever see a television series of any sort today, taking on the bankers?

    Here is an episode of Dobie Gillis which takes on the banks.

    Notice that “The Thinker” statue played a dominant role in the Gillis series.
