This will cause a stir

but isn't it pretty practical advise?

Princeton Alumna To Female Princeton Students:

Find A Husband Before Graduation

…For most of you, the cornerstone of your future and happiness will be inextricably linked to the man you marry, and you will never again have this concentration of men who are worthy of you.

one of your genes might be the human species lifeboat

I guess that's the idea behind "go forth and multiply" (not to be confused by this or with this sort of multiplication)

(extinction threat population rules seem right now no longer to apply)

just think though

one of your genes or one of the genes of one of your offspring

might be the saviour of all the other genes, or at least some

you might just be the human species lifeboat (kinda like these fire ants)


"all other priorities rescinded"

perhaps that's the underlying issue with conservatives versus liberals

liberals try at least to associate themselves with the whole of creation (and all of its genes)

conservatives just pretend to, or don't bother



yes that's 5 prime to 3 prime

5 prime to 3 prime remember

Peak Oil is Dead

 “peak oil” became the boogeyman of the U.S. economy

i guess he must have been a bit like van Gogh

so anything Peak Oily will be worth something


Ants prove that humans need not be very bright at all

the results show us that people need only expend an ant size part of their neurological system to feeding themselves and their families

the rest we can play with at will :-)

i guess that the ants have a funny chemical switch connected to their direction - once they have filled the switch and closed it they turn around and follow the same strategy



the battle against change

The battle between those who think we can fend off biological inevitability by stamping out its sociological symptoms rages on

which side is right?

the "right" side's belief is bound to societies that only occasionally encountered high population densities and none of them anything like what we have today

those left think that, no matter what our path to the future, all expressions of nature within ourselves are legitimate if the numbers say they are

both are trying to deal with the issue of population* and growth the same way

by ignoring it

Musing on properties in flight paths

it won't really be that long before aircraft will be flown entirely by programs

they'll drop error so far that it will seem like magic to anyone who has lived through flight

suddenly, you'll be able to have planes fly in almost any conditions

and that could be extended to include flying with any prevailing wind direction

so the need to fly over people can be reduced - in some cases, to zero.

then suddenly all the properties in flight paths will go up in value

get em now?

how many years?

Wanda Jackson

She's 75

she gets up on to a stage of hot and seasoned musicians who've been playing for an hour

there's a few hundred people in the darkness


really, she is amazing

and check out that band (only just met her)

the kid on the right is just 15

his dad on the bass

by the time they all get to Blues Fest 2013 they'll be fantastic
