Oh, I'm a good old rebel
Now thats just what I am
And for this yankee nation
I do no give a damn
I'm glad for insurrection
I only wish we'd won
I ain't asked any pardon
For anything I've done
I hates the Yankee nation
And eveything they do
I hates the declaration
Of independence too
I hates the egg head democrates
They aren't made with our blood
I hates the damn coloreds
And fought them all I could
I rode with Donald J Trump
For four years there about
Got wounded in four places
And I marched at Charlottesville
I caught Covid at NASCAR races
An' swimmin' in Tampa
Ya'no I killed a bunch of Yankees
And I'd like to kill some more
Three hundred thousand Yankees
Cuz we didn't wear them masks
We got three court nominees
Before they packed the court
They died of kung fu fever
And oath keeping promise
Biden is the griever and chief
and spends trillions on relief
I can't take up my M 16
And fight 'em down no more
But I ain't a-goin' to love them
Now that is certain sure
And I don't want no pardon
For what I was and am
I won't be liberalized
And I do not give a damn
Oh, I'm a good old rebel
Now that's just what I am
And for this Yankee nation
I do no give a damn
I'm glad I fought against her
I only wish we'd won
I ain't asked any pardon
Or charged for what I've done
I ain't asked any pardon
Cuz Insurrection's fun.

This was in The Atlantic by Emilia Phillips, and I wish a few people had remarked on it when I posted it to Facebook. I'm not the only one who listens to the voices of the classical music radio station hosts, am I?

Late-Night Classical Radio Host


(A poem for Sunday)

The first thing you need is a voice.
One someone can fall asleep to.
Can sleep through. Words
twinkling in faint starbursts
of static. Your timbre must sotto
the way a library book smells
like the mausoleum of Erato.
You must bring a thermos—
an old metal one, dinged.
Fill it with quote-unquote
coffee but drink
slowly. Before 3, you’ll have to
say Saint-Saens without slurring.
Oh, and you’ll need to know Italian,
of course. Or, at least, how to pronounce
it—those hard c’s in concerti.
When you arrive, take off winter
and hang it on the hook
by the door. Your wool
socks on the ancient green
carpet will remind you of a long-ago
dream in which you were an army
of one marching across Elysia.
The studio’s wood paneling
will one day give you a splinter
you’ll suck out during
the flute menuet of Bizet’s
“L’Arlésienne Suite No. 2.”
You’ll get used to the schedule
of sleeping through the day,
only to wake as the the sun sets
like a bald man’s head
under a hat. You’ll prepare for your shift
by stuffing cotton balls
in your mouth and saying catgut lute
five times fast.
You’ll do this because you know
there are only a few
who’ll listen to you.
And this, you think,
is good practice
for the afterlife.

White anglo saxon protest ants (WASPS) now have a republican caucus in Congress to rid the country of all non European immigrants and ciizens to make America great again. Spearheading their movement to make anglo saxons the master race again are their swarms of MURDER HORNETS and cicadas. Weaponized cockroachs in the woodwork will then provide the final solution in urban areas.

When a gamma cosmic ray hits our upper atmosphere and turns into muons it should decay immediately but since it is traveling just about the speed of light TIME slows down for it and allows it to penetrate harmlessly through expanses of rock.

If you believe ol uncle Einstein, then the notion of a singularity is impossible and against all known laws. On the other hand a bridge, wormhole or vortex to another part of a universe is allowed inside a black hole. How the heck could we ever check? It has been thought its a one way trip. IT is BUT Here's how to check...If there is a BH somewhere in the universe where two stars orbit a black hole on each side of a black hole just outside the accretion disk, we could look for the gravity of the star behind the black hole...if it is not there, it was swallowed up by a gravity 'shadow' going down a drain . If the gravity is accounted for via lensing, ol Al is RIGHT AGAIN.

Your trip inside a black hole wormhole would be a wild ride of acceleration for awhile but gravity would not approach infinite and would actually slow down toward an emergence some place else. Your space craft would preferably be non magnetic inside a warp bubble to free you from inertial forces and radiation. Sorry, you will have no navigation in this macro quantum event.

Finding the ideal black hole off ramp from this universe is unlikely, making the ideal spacecraft is unlikely and getting to the off ramp is currently too far. But hey for sci-fi writers its instant gratification. Beyond the journey, could be the ultimate Gulliver's Travels.

How old are your cells? By measuring the new Carbon 14 atoms in cells we have found your surface tongue cells and intestinal lining to be 5 days old. Those cells are replaced and regenerated fastest. Your hippocampus cells are no more than 30. Your heart cells are up to 16.9 years old.
But your cerebral cortex and glial cells are as old as you are.
So if you don't drink alcohol like me I will grow proportionately smarter than all you drinkers each passing year without my growing smarter at all.
WHAT?
All those extra cortex convolutions found in learned people are not new neurons?

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.
