  1. The word 'seminars' is best understood by breaking it down into its component parts: 'semi-' meaning 'half' 'arse' meaning 'the buttocks' From this it is easy to conclude that seminars are a series of half-assed discussions. Any experienced educator knows this intuitively.
  2. I think Phil and Kaja Foglio should be a single entry.
  3. Sounds like something that has definitely undergone decay.
  4. Here's the video of the play in question: I think we can all agree that this typifies not just the Dallas Cowboys, but the entire NFC East, in 2020.
  5. Wouldn't something like that trigger the inclusion of a #8 seed?
  6. "Miles, you really are an incredibly decent man." "I know. It's always been my problem."
  7. I just finished watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with the kids. It was quite different without the cheering crowds, but still pretty cool. It was really interesting seeing the Rockettes fully clothed and masked, but I'll tell you what, the precision of their dance routine was immaculate.
  8. As Mark Twain is reported to have said, "Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."
  9. On this subject, I can recommend Richard Wolfson's "Einstein's Relativity and the Quantum Revolution: Modern Physics for Non-Scientists". It's available in book and video form; I have it as a set of 12 CDs with a total of 24 lectures of half an hour each. It's probably available to stream somewhere, though I can't speak to that specifically. In terms of the subject matter, it's exactly what it says on the tin. Wolfson starts with the question of what it would be like to play tennis on a cruise ship. He relates this to Galilean relativity, the idea that the laws of motion are the sa
  10. Alberta tends to be home to the same kinds of political thinking as many of the Red States in the American West. That their rate of coronavirus infection follows the same trend as their counterparts in the US is not entirely surprising.

  12. I was thinking of Norah as a jazz pianist rather than (or perhaps in addition to) a jazz vocalist, in something of the same vein as Diana Krall.
  13. The producers of the show recently announced that they will have a series of interim/guest hosts until a permanent replacement is chosen. It's not entirely surprising that the first of these will be Ken Jennings.
  14. "What I'm about to tell you is the first real test of our relationship, Mr. Tyler. Betray me, and I'll live long enough to hunt you down and kill you slowly. Understood?" "I've been killed before, Georgiou. You're just telling me I'll have time to enjoy the scenery."
  15. You're forgetting bandleaders Frank Layden and Jerry Sloan, as well as Hot Rod Hundley on the mic. On a more relevant note: Norah Jones as jazz? Yea or Nay?
