A big thanks to Bagel for inspiring this bit of derangement and spite toward my fellow Virginian . . .

 Guess what killed the pit bulls at Michael Vick’s estate? Vick’s .44

Go see the doughgirl sometime

And I didn’t even have to pay duty on it . . .

Beware. I just managed to give my WordPress blog a padded historical past. Yes, I finally imported most of my old Blogspot blog yesterday. I’d say ‘go back and read all my neat stuff,’ but it really isn’t all that neat. More like bringing along my attic . . .

For everyone who thinks Henry Rollins’ only role in life is to attack, consider this . . . .

 You’ll never think of scallops the same way again.

 I have to admit – finding GoogleEarth was much like prowling around in the family attic and finding a photo album you forgot had existed.

 Below is a GE shot of my childhood home – Royal Air Force Station St. Eval. The old airfield, taxiways, hangar pads and hardstands can be seen to the west, while the old base housing complex can be seen on the northeastern side of the main road.

Childhood home - RAF St. Eval

My old school (Trevisker) is marked . Our house’s back garden abutted on the school’s main field. As far as I can tell, not all that much has changed in the last 40 years.

Anyone can run the cheese shop or parrot skits from YouTube (funny as they are), but it’s far more satisfying to take advantage of the Pythons’ university education and eruditeness by watching gems like this . . .

Talk about an astronomical sense of humor . . . .

Sometimes a little walkabout through new blogs bears sweet fruit, like this little gem from the blog of astronomy grad student Molly Peeples . . . .

And then there’s times when turning off the popup blocker pans a worthwhile nugget . . .

Full marks to Raincoaster for this one . . .

I’f I’m gonna steal from a blog, why not the best? And a big damn hoo-rah to Henry! Especially since I’m a lazy-assed purveyor of other folks’ culture this Sunday morning . . . .

Gorbachev is new face of Louis Vuitton

Thu Aug 2, 2:28 PM ET

PARIS – Move over Scarlett Johansson! Mikhail Gorbachev is the new face of Louis Vuitton.

The former Soviet leader is to appear in an ad campaign for the French luxury label, along with Steffi Graf and her husband, Andre Agassi, and Catherine Deneuve, said a statement Thursday from Vuitton, a division of the LVMH group, Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA.

Shot by photographer Annie Leibovitz, the ads focus on travel — a “core value” for the company that started in 1854 as a trunk-maker, the statement said.

It’s hydra-matic (sorry, Grease was on the tv last night . . . .)

Scientists Create 12-Headed Jellyfish

By Charles Q. Choi, Special to LiveScience

posted: 31 July 2007 08:03 pm ET

“Jellyfish with up to a dozen heads have been created in the laboratory by carefully monkeying with a few genes.

The genetic experiments could shed light on how natural colonies of other multi-headed organisms first originated, including some that build coral reefs.

“Researchers targeted so-called Cnox genes, which help control how the bodies of jellyfish are laid out as their embryos develop. These genes are closely related to Hox genes, which play a similar role in humans.”

First of all, why Cnox genes? If they’re jellyfish, why not use the Knox gene>

Second, Samuel Z. Arkoff beat them to the punch more than three decades ago . . .
