It might have been his "ride" (for Don's benefit, "ride" = "jam") that gave the game away.





You can't see it in the pic, but the license plate reads "PHYSPMP".

The plot thickens. It's not just the physicists.

RD, they are bit late with that door idea. My old '76 Impala (sometimes Impaler) had one of these.

That's it! If they try to get me on Desert Island Discs, I'm not falling for it. Nasty BBC Johnnies bombarding you with all sorts of sneaky trick questions and putting truth serum in your tea. No sirree!

I stumbled across this the other day. Some of you Latin scholars might find it useful. (I like the one about the toga.)

"Nearly 40 percent of Europeans suffer mental illness"

http://news.yahoo.com/nearly-40-pct-europeans-suffer-mental-illness-230827577.html

"David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacology expert at Imperial College London who was not involved in this study, agreed."  ;D

"Russian media magnate Lebedev punches debate rival"

http://news.yahoo.com/russian-media-magnate-lebedev-punches-debate-rival-205946662.html

What was he thinking? Is he trying to give billionaires a bad name?

We are in the midst of an ongoing debate regarding grizzly bears here. Apparently, according to federal law, you have to get permission from a federal government representative to shoot a grizzly bear before it eats you.

Someone suggested in our local paper that we could solve two problems simultaneously by relocating the grizzlies to Washington DC.

(I suspect our lawmakers have been spending too much time watching Yogi and Boo-Boo.)

That could be classed as cruelty to bears, think of all the toxins in the fat that they would get, like dioxin.

I though we had stopped with the Spanish Inquisition? Instead of the seismologists go after the council who did nothing to ensure buildings in an earthquake prone area were capable of withstanding a big earthquake, or who were lax in providing both safe shelters and support.

"stealing makeup, energy bars and batteries"
 
I think somebody needs to ease up on the energy bars.

No, honest. It really is a $1,000,000 note.
