I heard there is an impossibly large black hole nearby that is capturing smaller ones even closer to us.

I use a protractor, a piece of string, a fishing weight, and a level to measure the curvature of the Universe. It's quite simple when you know how. Oh, yes! I do my calculations on a 10" K&E log log decitrig slide rule (I used to use an abacus but I wanted more accuracy).

Stilly the way we tried to measure the curve or flatness of the universe was to trace humongous triangles and see if they added up to more degrees than a flat triangle. Why they got it wrong is that the
universe is bigger than we thought.

This question was asked of me in 1970 and I chose an open universe ie curved. Good catch, You found that link before I did.

I don't think the US Mints create coins honoring living Presidents.

"(b) United States currency has the inscription “In God We Trust” in a place the Secretary decides is appropriate. Only the portrait of a deceased individual may appear on United States currency and securities. The name of the individual shall be inscribed below the portrait." 31 U.S. Code §?5114(b).

LBJ signed an Executive Order for Kennedy half dollar, otherwise the standard is at least 10 years dead. Another exception was granted for some of those on the Presidential Dollars series.

I think the engraver did an excellent job, considering the engraving projects I'm hearing about on AM radio as I listen to my weekly gardening program. There's apparently a presidential gold coin for the current occupant of the White House. Speculating about that OTHER project is liable to cause all sorts of indigestion or other GI upsets.

The so-called "Shame [correct spelling and meaning] McBride" is based on an actual character that LH knew well when he was imin Blind River, Ontario (yes, it exists). At the time LH was researching the music of bums, tramps, hoboes, panhandlers, and sex workers for his PhD dissertation at Juilliard1.

Yes, he received a PhD from the Fred Juilliard School of Clog Dancing. Call him "Doc Hawk" to let him know you know.


1Hawk, Little. "A Dissertation On the Music of Bums, Tramps, Hoboes, Panhandlers, and Sex Workers In Blind River, Ontario, Canada, Submitted In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Fred Juilliard School of Clog Dancing, June 13, 1932."

Tonight's repeat of NOVA was about "The Violence Paradox" and they're talking about "self-domestication" to reduce the amount of violence in modern societies.

Where does this leave Shane and Blind Drunk, et. al? Is there violence there or simply sloth?

Signs of life! MOM, we know you're there!

I was searching for a thread on Tom Lehrer and came up with lyrics and threads in the results. A post of mine from MOAB was there and I clicked on it. And can see it! So I then looked at the date of that post and went to the "view posts by date" option in the drop down menu and saw that Little Hawk had also posted that day. If you just mouse over the link without clicking it you can see the entire thing in the bottom. I saw the post number and typed that over the message number in the result I was already looking at and could see the LH post also. SO _ we can see in through the keyhole, but that's about it so far. The whole thing can't load but it is viewable one post at a time.

There's a thread currently on the board called "BS: What colour IS that?" It's about a paint color called "Clontarf". The color is named for the Clontarf suburb of Dublin, whose name is derived from the Irish Cluain Tarbh", meaning "meadow of the bull".

I only mention this because eaveryone knows that, as far as the Mudcat goes, the MOAB is the REAL meadow of the bull. Perhaps Mom should keep an eye out for possible leakage from that thread into this one.

MOM has looked at that thread and noted more than a couple of the recipes, but when I look at the recycle bin (she does use it) I see a lot of take-out containers. I can tell that somewhere in the kitchen the bag of potatoes has turned bad. Now which cupboard were they stashed in?

There's a stray male pitbull wandering around the front and down by the creek. The pack discussed his presence with him through the mesh security door; he didn't like the language they used and headed off. Zeke in the back was simply asking him to come an play, but the girls were offended that he was in the yard without a proper introduction. MOM was sitting on the swing in the sun in the back yard watching them all and sipping an early Friday evening cocktail.

G stands for Gnu, whose weapon of defence
Are long, sharp, curling horns, and common sense.
To these he adds a name so short and strong,
That even hardy Boers pronounce it wrong.
How often on a bright autumnal day
The pious people of Pretoria say,
'Come, let us hunt the______' Then no more is heard
but sounds of strong men struggling with a word;
Meanwhile the distant Gnu with grateful eyes
Observes his opportunity and flies.
