National Geographic takes on the truthers

I just got finished watching the National Geographic channel’s “9/11: Science and Conspiracy” special. Personally, I enjoyed the Popular Mechanics special more, but the Nat Geo show wasn’t so much about the science of the 9/11 attacks as it was the reaction of “truthers” to evidence that undermines their theories. If it wasn’t obvious by […]

Wrapping up the TV season

I've already told you I don't watch much in the way of network TV. This past week the two network shows I do watch, "Veronica Mars" and "Heroes," came to an end. If you watch either of these shows and haven't seen the final episodes yet on your TiVo, then skip the rest of this […]

Evil TV Execs

TV Network The CW doesn't have much of a following. It's got one cult hit that has been steadily growing through word-of-mouth, but the TV execs have decided they'd rather kill it than cultivate it. Veronica Mars got the ax. Instead, the CW will give us more "Who wants to be a scantily clad pole […]

Counting blessings

I don't watch a whole lot of television entertainment shows. For a period of several years I didn't watch any at all -- I watched a variety of news shows, wrote this blog and played video games. Lately, however, I've been hooked on "Heroes" on NBC and I belatedly jumped on the "Veronica Mars" bandwagon […]

Blogging slowdown

So, I haven't been writing as much because I've been catching up on some TV watching. A couple of people at work finally got me hooked on the TV show "Veronica Mars" and I've been making my way through the DVDs of the first two seasons before catching up on the current season. I should […]

Mythbusters still living in the pre-Internet era

Last year, I noted how the Discovery Channel's Mythbusters show has this tendency -- probably as a result of lawyers -- of assuming that they can keep information about various basic science facts out of the public domain by just "bleeping" out certain facts. Well, they've done it again. The latest show featuring "exploding pants" […]

I'm a big "Mythbusters" fan and often watch an episode (I've got my DVR set to record them) when I've got 45 minutes to kill. So, I'm watching an episode called "Confederate Rocket" and they're trying to recreate a rumored Civil War-era rocket that reportedly flew about 100 miles. At various stages in their mythbusting, […]

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"?

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
