Aw. Sad. I know nothing about her, but she merits a digital rose being tossed in her digital casket from me. Bless. Rip.

May things change and no one posts Hope jokes. I am now chewing on a bar of Black Soap (that’s the brand) from the Asian/Lebanese market where I shop. My mom heard that.

No, no, Mark…Dead Pool is where we huddle together around the fire in the cave and crack jokes about the darkness.

Sad isn’t when the famous die, it’s when the nobodies go, all alone and unremembered.

Did I tell you this virus of mine includes a really bizarre depressive mood swing?

Well, she’s got big hair and some kind of Jack Russell puppy. Is she and the puppy gonk worth draggin’ out the zombie motif, or is that a bit much? Not when you have a cold. Boo. Commiserations. I gotta get bizzy and think about Friday’s pick.

Note to all of us in the US:
6 p.m. Weasel Blog Time (a/k/a UTC or GMT) is the same as:
11:00 a.m. Pacific
12:00 p.m. Mountain
1:00 p.m. Central
2:00 p.m. Eastern

You’re welcome.

p.s. If you’re in some place that quite wisely and properly eschews that annoying daylight saving time kludge, your time is the same as daylight time one zone farther West. E.g., Arizona (Mountain zone) is on the same time as California (Pacific zone) right now.

I’ve read that B and C vitamin supplements can be good for treating depression. They seem to have helped me on a few occasions anyway. http://tinyurl.com/3qtdq3e

Mysterion!

Nyet! Depression has to do with cation channel families – and hippocampus neurons involving somatostatin, melatonin and serotonin receptors, which localisies to specific organelles in the neurons of the CNS.

Vit B? Nyet!
Vit C? It is a rate limiting step in collagen synthesis – so not really tied to clinical manifestations of depression!

Don’t you Amerikans know anything about basic cell biology?

Actually, no, Stoaty. What the Other O just blathered is an accurate, if hypersimplified, summary of current research, and there have been others, all relating to cell biology and research into cloning and genetic manipulation. Being a bizarrely-exaggerated moonbat doesn’t preclude being a real expert in other fields; call it further evidence that religious faith doesn’t prevent people from developing scientific expertise.

When R.U.R. goes live, it will be discovered that Rossum is a Kiwi expat.

Ric

Ric Locke, one quibble. Being able to blather an accurate, if hypersimplified, summary of current research in a field is no guarantee that one is a real expert in that field. Not saying whether this particular babbler is or isn’t; just, I’d be hesitant to assume it is on the basis of any statement made in this forum, given the level of apparent exaggeration in a number of past statements.

Okay, Ripley, but just so you know — picking someone and then killing them is considered poor form. Also, I can’t send a dick to prison.

Okay, Ripley, but just so you know — picking someone and then killing them is considered poor form. Also, I can’t send a dick to prison.

Poor form, perhaps….But not expressly against the rules as far as anyone can tell…..

And the expectation is that the dick could be delivered (to your solicitor, at the very least) sometime prior to the actual sentencing.

And Ripley, understand that if you pick the RIGHT person and then do the deed, SOME of us would be loudly cheering you on. Even if that DID cost us the chance to win…

Ric Locke: when Rossum’s Universal Robots launches, I am am ordering the deluxe Emmy™ model. Two actually, for when the the first one inevitably bursts.

I shall remain silent on how problematical it would be to have someone encounter a dick in prison…

Greetings your Ladyship, just wanted you to know that your gift arrived safely today; had an … um, interesting day at work, and the package o’dick was just what I needed.

(thought about yelling in all caps, I GOT THE DICK!! — yeah. Wouldn’t have been proper form, plus would have had to explain why I’m giggling whilst commenting on a site other than Facebook.)

Simply Put.

You don’t want the really long winded explanation – do you?
It would turn into a paper that I could not claim credit for.

Ah, fellow minions! JOIN me, in /not/ responding on the subject of whose parents might have made wiser choices! Use your imagination and ingenuity in the form of your post. . .

You can give me a million reasons for not pursuing genetic engineering technologies.
Some of them might even be valid, from your point of view.

The only trouble is that you are going to need them.

w00t! The passage of dick is mysterious and strange. Sometimes it takes days, sometimes it takes months.

“I GOT MY DICK YESTERDAY!”

hopefully it was consensual…

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)


Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
