Tea & Crackers | Rolling Stone Politics →
A hall full of elderly white people in Medicare-paid scooters, railing against government spending and imagining themselves revolutionaries as they cheer on the vice-presidential puppet hand-picked by the GOP establishment. If there exists a better snapshot of everything the Tea Party represents, I can’t imagine it.
Wherein I Continue to Fret for the Bears Even as...
It’s good to see that the Bears are 3-0 but I still worry about the offensive line. While Jay Cutler has improved with every game, becoming ever more confident and resourceful, he is getting hit a lot. And the Bears running game is weak. It looked pretty bad for the Bears for a while but thankfully, the Packers made a lot of dumb mistakes. The Packers made 18 penalties, including several...

Lab Rat: Xtreme bacteria! - SGM series →
Award for: Best attempt at mimicking a B-list Sci-Fi alien I’m not sure whether this should be given to the bacteria, or the people who wrote the abstract, but to give you a clue the talk is titled “Dark life in the fracture labyrinth of deep hard rock”. Bacteria have been found in rock fissures living in complete darkness with hardly any organic minerals, and using hydrogen as...
I'm Worried About the Bears
Speaking as a life-long Bears fan, I’m happy that they won their opening game against Detroit. But it’s hard to feel optimistic about their prospects this season. They barely defeated the worst team in football only after a last minute touchdown by Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson was ruled incomplete. A better receiver on a more disciplined team wouldn’t have tried to get up before...
