The Morning Rant



Halloween Edition:

tardigrade 01.jpgBoo!

Hi, there. Perhaps many of you don't know me. I'm what your scientists have called a tardigrade. Pretty creepy looking, aren't I? You can click on me if you'd like to see a larger version. I'd be a lot more frightening if I were the size of, say, your dog, but actually, those of my kind are water creatures who only grow to just over 1 mm, on average. So we're real tiny. But here's the kicker: we're almost impossible to kill. We can also withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water. We can cope with ridiculous amounts of pressure and radiation, and we can live for more than 10 years without food or water. We can even survive the hard vacuum of outer space. So go ahead and kill each other with wars are nuclear bombs and the like, but we'll still be around. Even if this planet gets a courtesy call from the Sweet Meteor of Death and all living things are completely wiped out, we'll still be here. And we'll still be voting for Democrats.



Frightening:

Not all that original, but it's well done, and that little boy is just *rocking* that Henry VIII costume.

50 I am kind of bummed today. My youngest who is now 14 is done trick or treating. I didn't think much about it until today but it's a bit melancholy to think that your kids are not so little anymore. Not to mention we always rode the neighbors hay wagon hooked up to his John Deere and went trick or treating with the kids. (there may have been a cooler or three on it for the adults) So we will miss that part of it too. It's cool to see your kids grow, but it kind of sucks to see it happen before you're ready for them to be.

That horrid new Star Trek series had a sort of giant glowing space-warping tardigrade as a running plot device. Yeah, it made no damn sense.

As to why God made tardigrades, I submit He did for the same reason as for the platypus: Because He could.

92 50 I am kind of bummed today. My youngest who is now 14 is done trick or treating. I didn't think much about it until today but it's a bit melancholy to think that your kids are not so little anymore. Not to mention we always rode the neighbors hay wagon hooked up to his John Deere and went trick or treating with the kids. (there may have been a cooler or three on it for the adults) So we will miss that part of it too. It's cool to see your kids grow, but it kind of sucks to see it happen before you're ready for them to be.

This. We started watching Over the Garden Wall (which is on Hulu right now) every Halloween. It's a cartoon about two brothers lost in the woods, and it's got old style animation, songs, and is quite cute. That, with pizza or BBQ, and passing out candy, makes for a good night. And get good candy so that you will enjoy the leftovers.

300 Thinking about the nevertrumpers. Especially the ones I've met who are "thought leaders"

My working theory is the reason they won't give up their Trumphate is a combination of being unable to admit they are wrong, and being unable to accept that someone who isn't an idealoge can move the needle for core conservative policies more than their years of "talking about it".

Being a policy wonk doesn't advance anything, at best you tinker on the edges. Trump proves that taking bold action is more effective than they have ever dreamed.

301 Yeah, GM is dead to me, now. And I liked their Suburbans and pickups, and still have a few. But the newest is 2008, built before Obongo meddled with GM, and I bought that one used.

I will probably never again buy a new car. New ones have too many features that work for Big Brother, and that means "work against my interests."

377 269 I've had my big longhaired black cat, Wolf, for 7 years now. Every Halloween I encourage him to hop into the living room window after dark, so that his huge black silhouette shows . . . and he is yet to be convinced that he should do it.

My cats are inside/outside cats. On Halloween, they're inside cats. Don't let them go out until 10-11 pm.

And when gas prices soar again, and their customers abandon SUVs and trucks for more fuel-efficient vehicles, Ford and the other makers will be howling. "What did we do wrong????"
