  1. Sounds interesting. Doesn't it though? Aaaaany way...You bring any Special brew? http://www.eso.org/public/news/eso1217/
  2. Not really. If you had heard the original outburst that he faced court over; I would have thought it more prudent if he just said sorry then stfu. Jesus wept! offence to who? They got fricken vampires workin there, or what?
  3. Yup; though gangster pimp of ages would have been a better name. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0G-BAdQIHY and the slaughter continues on MW2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hCx_sQbon8 We should have a Shetlink get together on it. I would very much enjoy the chance to kill any one of you.
  4. Quote mining again, Koy? Bad boy!I've told you about this before. I wasn't quoting Boxxy..."All models are wrong" is the title of the blog, the link provided. The 'sub-heading' is "...but some are useful. A grown-up discussion about how to quantify uncertainties in modelling climate change and its impacts, past and future." This was available to see, as soon as one clicks it and if one goes on to bother to read it; one may note that there is a whole section, where this very point is covered, titled... ALL BLOG NAMES ARE WRONG I posted it because it was relevant to the way the subject was turning and for a quick probe into the honesty levels of those who work the models for their bread and butter. For what it's worth, I'm pretty much with Carlos...("All models in all science are "wrong" to some degree or other, but the essential matter is, are they useful?") and our climate modeler, Tamsin...("we shouldn’t attempt to hide or spin the fact that models are not reality. My research is in quantifying uncerts.") cept with me; there is little value in wasting time and money over much of it when it comes to climate science, while the room is still absolutely hoaching with the Elephants that don't come with their own section in the Guardian. (You know where I'm going with this right?) The little things not dealt with like... The Sun not being a ball of burning gas but an electrically interacting object, in an electrically interacting Galaxy, in an electrically interacting Universe...(whatever the hell that is) The Earth is expanding. Since the idea that comets brought us all the water has been...erm, blown out of the water; just where the hell is it coming from and should we expect more? And the minor details like it not being an asteroid or a multiple asteroid strike that sent the Dinosaurs packing...multiple strike fo sure, but not like that. At the moment, sadly however; this is all neither here nor there to the larger scientific world, that is too busy trying to make their farts sound loudest and best, seemingly unaware of the thunderstorm, beyond the scale of any possible imagination, that has always raged from without and within. Still, there's no need to worry about any of that and I didn't come to slug it out over who is misrepresenting who about what, or why. Just in to drop a link. Afore I go though... here's some choice, quote minecrafting from said link... in case you missed it. A classic here... One for the road... “When the foundation itself rocks, whatever you have built upon it collapses†Marsilio Ficino
  5. From a climate modeller... All models are wrong http://allmodelsarewrong.com/a-model-of-models/#comments
  6. WISDOM... Hey abraxas; how you dooin!!! Still not a girl then... tisk! Ah well, at least you've still got sizzle in your jizzle; which is more than most around here can manage to squeeze out these days. I think I am beginning to understand the message, that the one who is known as 'leok' brings us... For verily I say unto thee for mote it be and maybe even written, on something, somewhere, that faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things, with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope. For three years now...three bloody long years, I have sat waiting for the on passing, of the wisdom of leok and through those long winter nights, I sat slack jawed and waiting for what appears from all angles, to be absolutely nothing; it will surely be epic when it gets here... http://oi41.tinypic.com/6teaep.jpg I STILL BELIEVE LEOK!!! I still belieeeveeee Our cups will runneth over. If it's not bloody brimming, there may be glassing. Or it could be the journey that we are to look upon and not the destination; in some zen buddhism, bumsteer. http://oi44.tinypic.com/21ovo0o.jpg Or, in a nutshell, just a nut.

  10. Just found this site from a link on the front page... http://www.spanglefish.com/northernskies/index.asp?pageid=270131 Quite good, me thunk.
  11. Wanna see some dead Muppet fetishes? http://oi41.tinypic.com/lun1k.jpg
  12. Yea, I was gonna put up grumpy old bar steward blues but the swear filter wouldn't let me off with posting a filth ridden link and that one was the only other vid filed in the same folder.
  13. I still remember Carter from somewhere in the nineties; which must mean something considering the sheer volume of data, as yet unrecovered from that period.
  14. Challenge accepted: No! that's elitism. In awesomism there are no restrictions of any kind and even if it goes against all reason; it will play. There is no shame in this. (well, maybe a little shame) quoted for truth. Paraphrased for lulz.
  15. The first answer (for both) It was all peace and quiet round here till you showed up.
  16. ^It's 5 past midnight and all I can say is, I hope my nextdoor neighbours like this.
  17. (Note to self: listen to the mods once in a while)
  18. Don't you worry bout it; running and screaming is just the way I dance. No worries there either mate... it's a good couple of hours till sun up yet.
  19. I don't know about music elitism, I find it kinda restrictive. I reckon music Awesomism is the way to go, whereby everything you like is always the best and anything you don't is by default, wrong and bad. It's only music though. I've ran screaming from some of the horrors unlinked has dug out. I gobbed on the moniter out of a reflex spasm when Ghosty put up five Quo vids in a oner and I've chewed my own ears off more than once, trying to get through some of eventide's selection. The thing is not to get too whiny about it. Slagging off other peoples taste in music is important but if we overindulge, the effect and potential lulz may be dampened at a time when we may really need it. Take Justin Bieber for instance... Out; if you get the chance. Sorry bout the bagpipes on this next one but I was overcome with Jet Set Willy nostalgia when I heard it. Nerd factor 9, Mr Spock! Lastly...lol, I dunno
