Re: "A-Minus-Minus" Discussion

It's very well possible that he put in a completely normal housecat, and the act of shipping the cat turned it into a bobcat. It is also possible that this is one of those Schrodinger's Box scenarios. He could have put in a ferret and it would have metamorphosed into a bobcat. That's called Quantum...

I agree with this comic's alt text. I always feel so unoriginal if I just say what's expected. Usually I just say what's on my mind and try to refrain from 1 or 2 word responses if at all necessary. I don't expect anything less from others, either. If someone says, "I'm doing fine," I'll u...

Velociraptors... demystified.

I have disappointing news for all of the Jurassic Park fans out there. This picture was taken at the Museum of Natural History in New York City. These are the bones of a full-grown, adult raptor! http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c165/DigitalMeatball/NewYork06018.jpg Not too frightening, is it?
