McGonagall's Whale of a Tale/Tail had escaped my notice before.

It's easier to read, I must own, than the

Where's Pandora
Explanation: Four moons are visible on the featured image -- can you find them all? First -- and farthest in the background -- is Titan, the largest moon of Saturn and one of the larger moons in the Solar System. The dark feature across the top of this perpetually cloudy world is the north polar hood. The next most obvious moon is bright Dione, visible in the foreground, complete with craters and long ice cliffs. Jutting in from the left are several of Saturn's expansive rings, including Saturn's A ring featuring the dark Encke Gap. On the far right, just outside the rings, is Pandora, a moon only 80-kilometers across that helps shepherd Saturn's F ring. The fourth moon? If you look closely inside Saturn's rings, in the Encke Gap, you will find a speck that is actually Pan. Although one of Saturn's smallest moons at 35-kilometers across, Pan is massive enough to help keep the Encke gap relatively free of ring particles. After more than a decade of exploration and discovery, the Cassini spacecraft ran low on fuel in 2017 and was directed to enter Saturn's atmosphere, where it either vaporized or became a new plot for a future Star Trek episode along side Vger.

Ah, yes.....William Topaz McGonagall! The greatest poet of the Ages! It's time we heard some more from the Bard of Edinburgh.

List then to these magnificent verses that spilled from his pen in the year of our Lord 1883.

The Famous Tay Whale

'TWAS in the month of December, and in the year l883,
That a monster whale came to Dundee,
Resolved for a few days to sport and play,
And devour the small fishes in the silvery Tay.

So the monster whale did sport and play
Among the innocent little fishes in the beautiful Tay,
Until he was seen by some men one day,
And they resolved to catch him without delay.

When it came to be known a whale was seen in the Tay,
Some men began to talk and to say,
We must try and catch this monster of a whale,
So come on, brave boys, and never say fail.

Then the people together in crowds did run,
Resolved to capture the whale and to have some fun!
So small boats were launched on the silvery Tay,
While the monster of the deep did sport and play.

Oh! it was a most fearful and beautiful sight,
To see it lashing the water with its tail all its might,
And making the water ascend like a shower of hail,
With one lash of its ugly and mighty tail.

Then the water did descend on the men in the boats,
Which wet their trousers and also their coats;
But it only made them the more determined to catch the whale,
But the whale shook at them his tail.

Then the whale began to puff and to blow,
While the men and the boats after him did go,
Armed well with harpoons for the fray,
Which they fired at him without dismay.

And they laughed and grinned just like wild baboons,
While they fired at him their sharp harpoons:
But when struck with,the harpoons he dived below,
Which filled his pursuers' hearts with woe.

Because they guessed they had lost a prize,
Which caused the tears to well up in their eyes;
And in that their anticipations were only right,
Because he sped on to Stonehaven with all his might:

And was first seen by the crew of a Gourdon fishing boat
Which they thought was a big coble upturned afloat;
But when they drew near they saw it was a whale,
So they resolved to tow it ashore without fail.

So they got a rope from each boat tied round his tail,
And landed their burden at Stonehaven without fail;
And when the people saw it their voices they did raise,
Declaring that the brave fishermen deserved great praise.

And my opinion is that God sent the whale in time of need,
No matter what other people may think or what is their creed;
I know fishermen in general are often very poor,
And God in His goodness sent it drive poverty from their door.

So Mr John Wood has bought it for two hundred and twenty-six pound,
And has brought it to Dundee all safe and all sound;
Which measures 40 feet in length from the snout to the tail,
So I advise the people far and near to see it without fail.

Then hurrah! for the mighty monster whale,
Which has got 17 feet 4 inches from tip to tip of a tail!
Which can be seen for a sixpence or a shilling,
That is to say, if the people all are willing.

The longest we have ever stored anti matter is a sixth of a second which is not long enough to experiment with it. But that has changed with a pulsed laser that "cools down anti matter." It was conceived by a Canadian guy :^) If there are any differences as to how anti matter reacts to gravity or other things we can settle some truths. Physics loves to see the unexpected. When you get scanned with slowly released anti matter - positrons we can measure the light of the photons produced to take an internal picture of you. Perhaps you thought you had nothing to do with anti matter in your life, but it ain't so.
We can make anti hydrogen with an anti proton and a positron and even store it for an extended time compared to magnetic traps. Its as strange as a ghost busters ghost trap and has only been around very recently.
You won't be able to buy a gram of anti matter on Amazon for decades.

To put it another way, lingual papillae, and especially those with bifurcated varicosities, reject by reverse peristalsis Beam's formulation of psychoactive ethanol save when a component in a solution of carbonic acid (pH 3 to 4), a compound of the methylxanthine class; phosporic acid; sucrose;, oils of orange, lemon, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, and neroli blended in E150D caramel color, the whole cooled by cyrospheric water in a cylindrical 500 ml non-graduated Pyrex beaker at Standard Temperature and Pressure. Superabundance can lead to a primary conversion to acetaldehyde by the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase and then to acetic acid by an oxidation and egestion process. These reactions also convert nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) to its reduced form NADH in a redox reaction, making normal bodily functions more difficult. By causing an imbalance of the NAD+/NADH redox system, and as a consequence of the induced redox changes in the human body can include increased triglyceride production, increased amino acid catabolism, inhibition of the citric acid cycle, lactic acidosis, ketoacidosis, hyperuricemia, disturbance in cortisol and androgen metabolism and increased fibrogenesis. The metabolism of glucose and insulin are also influenced.

Zero phase lag synchronization occurs between discharges of neurons in different brain regions and is enhanced by presentation of stimuli. This evidence further suggests that spatiotemporal patterns of coherence, which have been identified by spatial principal component analysis, may encode a multidimensional representation of a present or past event. How such distributed information is integrated into a holistic percept constitutes the binding problem. How a percept defined by a spatial distribution of nonrandomness can be subjectively experienced constitutes the problem of consciousness. Explanations based on a discrete connectionistic network cannot be reconciled with the relevant facts. Evidence is presented herein of invariant features of brain electrical activity found to change reversibly with loss and return of consciousness after drinking Jim Beam.

This literary achievement belongs, in heart and tone,
on the same thread with McGillivray and the other Muses.
It's actually a good piece of imitation H. P. Lovecraft,
meaning it's overheated and extremely humid and stuff.

The other place for it would be the cicada thread,
since it is about cicadas.

The author, Leigh Cowart, is listed as the Sex and Science editor

From the Digitrad:

THE YEW TREE
(Brian McNeill)

cho: My bonnie yew tree
Tell me what did you see

A mile frae Pentcaitland, on the road to the sea
Stands a yew tree a thousand years old
And the old women swear by the grey o' their hair
That it knows what the future will hold
For the shadows of Scotland stand round it
'Mid the kail and the corn and the kye
All the hopes and the fears of a thousand long years
Under the Lothian sky

Did you look through the haze o' the lang summer days
Tae the South and the far English border
A' the bonnets o' steel on Flodden's far field
Did they march by your side in good order
Did you ask them the price o' their glory
When you heard the great slaughter begin
For the dust o' their bones would rise up from the stones
To bring tears to the eyes o' the wind

Not once did you speak for the poor and the weak
When the moss-troopers lay in your shade
To count out the plunder and hide frae the thunder
And share out the spoils o' their raid
But you saw the smiles o' the gentry
And the laughter of lords at their gains
When the poor hunt the poor across mountain and moor
The rich man can keep them in chains

Did you no' think tae tell when John Knox himsel'
Preached under your branches sae black
To the poor common folk who would lift up the yoke
O' the bishops and priests frae their backs
But you knew the bargain he sold them
And freedom was only one part
For the price o' their souls was a gospel sae cold
It would freeze up the joy in their hearts

And I thought as I stood and laid hands on your wood
That it might be a kindness to fell you
One kiss o' the axe and you're freed frae the racks
O' the sad bloody tales that men tell you
But a wee bird flew out from your branches
And sang out as never before
And the words o' the song were a thousand years long
And to learn them's a long thousand more

Last chorus:
My bonnie yew tree
Tell me what CAN you see

Sung.

In science news the lab grown and transplanted vaginas may get all the headlines but the Leptoquarks at CERN are real enough to become electrons more often than muons, hinting a new force in the universe by a tri color Boson creating a field we have not expected or predicted like the Higgs. IMO there are 8 bosons for us to explore and find out what kinds of fields and forces that we have been missing. The dark matter may be expressed in other boson force fields, who knows even gravity could be undersstood. At any rate new forces are afoot Sherlock.
We are all floating about in a quantum sea and discovering new forces/currents in this sea is a big deal. When we find out, quantum mechanics might even make sense to humans. This may be bigger than the cosmological constant and the space energy that expands more space which in turn makes more space until one day... poof...the big RIP happens and matter and energy are reduced to a lower energy level by Entropy/Shiva.

No one expected the humble little lepto quark would be the mouse that roared.

It's installed and all is working as it should -- except Pat found another such in her magic supply closet. Oh well, the new one is 1 gig and the old one is 150 mbs. Now if I could just find those two hanks of CAT5 I remember having here in the office.... Mind you, we don't need any more CAT5, open or pinned out.

By the way, if anyone needs padlocks for firearms, let me know (they're actually pretty good locks -- Master, mostly, with cable-type shackles.) They are quite usable for anything you'd use a padlock for.

Fry's Electronics shut down all of it's stores around the US - if you want to shop for the corporeal version of BS, Fry's had it. The most oddball items in its inventory. But they also had a lot of modems and routers along one wall, and I will miss shopping there. For objects with no moving parts it's astonishing how quickly modems and routers die, isn't it? Planned obsolescence, illustrated.

Then, on Sunday last, our in-home network up and died dead. Yup, the router (18 months or so old!) kicked the bucket. So I ordered one from Costco and paid $12.25 for "expedited shipping" with an arrival on the 16th.

Nope. UPS delivered it today. Seems like there were storms in Wyoming that were delaying shipments. Mind you, this was coming from Tacoma....

I'm going to ask for the additional shipping cost back.
