Cause and Defect

butterfly effect You just wanted a burger.

But that requires cows and cows require corn and corn requires phosphates and phosphates leach into the water and the water reaches the gulf and the gulf becomes a big dead zone and millions of fish die.

Or cows require pasture which requires deforestation which shrinks the rain forest which means erosion of the soil and species loss and release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere leading eventually to climate change and droughts and floods and, ironically enough, starvation when the crops fail.

Meanwhile those cows are eliminating millions of tons of waste packed with deadly e. coli daily even though they're regularly dosed with a steady supply of human-grade antibiotics, which you eventually eat, that barely keeps them alive long enough to reach the slaughterhouse before their livers fail from being force-fed a delightful hash of corn and ground-up cow remains.

But you just wanted one little burger. No harm done, right?


I'm proud to say that about a kazillion people, give or take a few million, visited the new and improved and for that I thank you one and all. I've already added new content since ye olde Grande Opening and have swatted a bug or two.

I also added a Google Search feature for the site which turned out to be problematical as apparently da Goog has not yet indexed the new data, so the search results are all from the previous incarnation... which no longer exists.


However, I'm sure the Big G will be visiting the site soon as no sparrow falls that it does not spy with its spidery little internet eye.


Some bright spark has wasted valuable hours of his life by enumerating the 100 longest entries on Wikipedia. Number #1 is about D&D, which I can almost understand but #2 is a list of sporting events in August of 2010, leading me to ask "WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!?". This is a circle jerk of epic proportions. You might as well have created a list of Imelda Marcos' open-toed fuck-me-pumps.

Number #3 a list of the RAF aircrews in the Battle of Britain. Ooh, pinch me.

Still, the list offers some fascinating surprises. Stop in and see for yourself.

The following is #44 in a list of accomplishments by the GOP since they gained control of the House in 2011. None have yet to result in one, single new job.

(44) 6-24-2011: Yesterday the Democratic Congress stood up on its back legs and finally barked out what so many of us have been saying for the past six months--- that the Republican Congress is actively trying to stall the economy. There, was that so harrrrrrrd?
