QT: Cheer Up, The Universe Isn't Everything


News Headline: "Scientists find evidence that the universe is a 'giant brain.'"
News Headline: "Most galaxies in the universe are moving away from us."
Every universe has its right to second thoughts.

···

News Headline: "Weapon training company's CEO threatens to 'start killing people' over Obama's gun control policies."
A hard part of stopping potential mass murderers is discerning the subtle signs and clues.

···

QT Digest of Rush Limbaugh's Friday Show (for Your Convenience):
". . . I. . . admit. . . I'm . . . predatory. . . and. . . a . . . buffoon. . . ."
OK. Finally.

···

News Headline: "Man suspected of shooting toddler surrenders."
News Headline: "Toddler accidentally shoots self."
Five days until National Gun Appreciation Day. . . .

···

QT What Passes for Miracles These Days Update:
An image of Jesus has been found on a grilled cheese sandwich in Los Angeles.
The cheese was provolone.

···

News Headline: "Patriotic group to build armed 'defensible' neighborhood fortress."
It takes a village.
Well. OK. And some village idiots.

···

QT Early Warning System:
A Glenn Beck theme park is planned in Texas.

···

News Headline: "Rick Perry: I can't make Cuomo a Texan."
Might try having him huff paint for a while.
Might work.

···

From the QT Archive of Knowledge:
+ Germany's Weimar Republic had tougher gun laws that the Nazi Reich that came after it.
+ U.S. gun manufacturing has nearly doubled in the past five years.

···

The Case for Zero Tolerance of Modern School Administrators:
Miss California 2012 rehearsing for the Q&A session of the Miss America Pageant:
Q. "What are your feelings on euthanasia becoming legalized?"
A. "That's actually one thing I'm not very educated on. So I need to look up on exactly what that means. But I do know that's a vaccine, correct?"

···

QT Rules of Etiquette for Guys and Dolls:
+ Dinner jacket with black tie.
+ Tails with white tie.
+ Unlike the 2009 Inaugural Balls, during which President Obama wore a sort of dinner jacket with white tie.
+ The thought of which has been mildly troubling QT for four years.
+ QT will move on now.

···

News Headline: "Is silence evidence of guilt?"
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

···

QT Yellowstone Caldera (the eruptions of which can be violent enough to send a layer of ash six feet deep as far away as Chicago and which erupts every 600,000 or so years and last erupted 640,000 years ago) Update:
The weekend's sudden swarm of earthquakes at Yellowstone has stopped.
So there is nothing to be concerned about.

···

News Item: "What could be the largest structure yet seen in the observable universe has emerged. . . an apparent cluster of quasars some 4 billion light-years across. . . ."
Or the equivalent of 60 quintillion Great Walls of China built end to end, for those still trying to visualize it.
Give or take.

···

Today's Birthdays: "Tosca," 113; "Tutti Frutti," 57.

···

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language:
Rich Rzadzki, a Chicago reader, writes:
"I notice 'factoid' is finding its way back into common parlance."
Never left.
But once again:
A factoid is not a quick fact or a little fact.
It is something that resembles a fact but is not true.
QT has just iterated a point, by the way.
It will not reiterate the point until it iterates it another time.
