Hadrons, aren’t they extinct?

I thought all the Taranadons ate them?

I’m pretty sure that it’s not a good idea to be accelerating fossilized ancestors of the sauramons around tunnels in Sweden.

Chris Matyszczyk argues the case against the LHC far better than I could. After all, if we allow KRENN to create a black hole in the middle of the earth (why they dug tunnels that far down I don’t know) does the bible specify an alternate meeting place for the rapture?

After reading a few of the comments, I suddenly realized the origin of Dark Matter, the mysterious “something” out there bending light but invisible to scientists.

Isn’t it obvious?

Dark Matter is made of humor.

A java update, ooOoo!

Well, now I finally understand why it’s so important that Sun’s Java doesn’t worry about little things like giving you a choice in whether or not they run the Java helper on your system. Obviously all of us use Java all of the time. But, what my computer was missing was, it’s so clear now… Puzzle Pirates.

I don’t know why, but this just pushed a button somewhere. It is time to begin the Annual KFS1’s “Better Then Microsoft” award for companies that manage to out-Microsoft Microsoft at the kind of evil crap we hate MS for. Right now Sun, Adobe and Corel are fore-runners in the category of “Showing Total Lack of Respect for Customers”. EA’s download manager came close to putting them in the running but, while they neglect to give you an install-time option for disabling auto-updates, it wasn’t hard to find it in the app itself.

Any nominations?

Ike headed for Austin, Dallas

Hurricane Ike, that is. Looks like we’ll be in for an interesting drive on Sunday.
