We’re Gonna Make A Dinosaur, We’re Gonna Make a Dinosaur

You remember the theory behind Jurassic Park dontcha? Mosquito bites dinosaur, falls into tree-sap, and after a kazillion years becomes amber. Break open the amber, get the mosquito, extract the dinosaur DNA from the blood sucked in?

 Well, no, that actually probably won’t work.

Turns out DNA breaks down too fast, and we could probably not get enough “pure” DNA to clone the T-Rex of our dreams.

But Jack Horner, who has been more right about more things dinosaurish than just about anyone, thinks you might be able to de-evolve a chicken back to what it used to be. And some biologists think he could be right, and some are actually working on it with him.

It’s a fun read, and it’s Friday, so go on and read the fun story about how having a dinosaur pet can still be your dream.

I thought this was sweet. It’s from LOLGod.

Question of the day:

What do you have when you put Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Louis Gohmert,  and Steve King in a locked room?

An all-out knock-down dragged-out fight for the only brain cell in the room.

Who will referee? Ann Coulter, Glenn (what happened to you?) Beck, and Rushed Limpy, all looking under a toilet seat for where the brain cell is hiding.

What the pseudo-journalists at Blaze are trying to brainwash the trailer-trash with today:

Increasingly they call it ABR: anybody but Romney. I always feel bad when I’ve learned that “somebody doesn’t like me.” Wonder what it must be like to know that millions don’t like you?

I don’t have any personal reason to dislike Romney. What I dislike is that he has proven himself over the years to be obsessed about becoming president. That’s troubling enough, for you wonder just what kind of demons are thrashing it out in his head.

But what is disturbing, and an obvious deal-breaker for me, and I’m certainly not a Republican, is that I have no idea what if any principles he actually has. He has changed them so often and so violently, that I frankly think they are non-existent.

Romney seems to order his handlers to poll on every issue, and then he adopts that position. At least to the degree that he needs that segment of voters to add to his election winning strategy. That’s why Republicans are nervous. What he says ain’t necessarily what he will do. He seems frankly up for sale to the highest bidder.

And if you don’t agree, well even the National Review seems to agree with me. So far the GOP in various configurations,  has begged Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Jeb Bush, Eric Cantor, Sarah Palin, and Paul Ryan to save them from eating their vegetables. It is a bit pathetic isn’t it?

Speaking of which, people dislike Romney so much that some of them have gone to the extraordinary length of actually forgetting they ever knew him. A new poll suggests that only 27% of the electorate knows who he is. This is down from 30% in 2007. Or it could just be that knowing who he was, was so traumatic that 3% of those who knew just died from the agony.

Jon Stewart pointed out something last night that, well it’s actually what we would expect from the Great Grifter, aka Sarah Palin.  Stewart suggested that Sarah had kept on shilling for money for her own SuperPac right up to the moment she announced that she wouldn’t run.

Stewart remarked that while not illegal, it might be termed unethical (since Palin can and does use the money for her own personal self-promoting purposes) if indeed Ms. Moosesilla knew she was not opting in for some time.

Stewart went on to smile, and say, “well, we can’t conclude that can we?” But then there was this pesky little piece of tape with Daughter #1 BristleBrush, saying like in JUNE, “oh she knows what she’s gonna do, but it stays with the family for now.”

Best Grifter of the Year: Sarah, although Newt is a close second.

    I’m hoping atavism causes a chicken somewhere to revert back to dinosaur traits!


  2. This is awesome, there’s actually a great video about the exact same dinosaur theory from TED. Hopefully it works though! Dinosaurs are pretty awesome haha Although I’m not sure its the best idea to make the first one a T-rex…

    • Sherry says:

      Yeah, T-Rex is probably not the one to start with. But they are just awesome! I just love those tiny tiny little front hands!

    Lessee, ‘make a dinosaur’…… that’s two shots of tequila, a little triple Sec and lime juice….. right?

  4. Margy Rydzynski says:

    Loved the Steve Jobs pic – put it up on my blog. I don’t care what the righty-tighty loonies say, the occupations are here to stay.

    • Sherry says:

      We are not going away. There is a very very large electorate out there that has had enough and is not about to let this election fall into the hands of the extremists on the right. Their social agenda which is about all they have spent time on is draconian in every single respect. And they have the nerve to call us “class warfare” advocates!

  5. Snoring Dog Studio says:

    Eric Cantor calling the Occupy Wall Street people a “mob” is laughable. It’s a mob if you hate what they represent, but it’s called the Tea Party if you’re pandering for their votes. The U.S. has been badly in need of an Occupy movement. Most of us have sat by while others take the conversation into far-reaching, soul-less directions. It’s time to get in the game.

    • Sherry says:

      I am hoping with all my heart that this takes off big. All indicators suggest it will given how it started. Much as the stupid right tries to claim it’s all orchestrated, it is not at all, and that usually means that it has real staying power.

    I think Mitt What’shisname is plagued with Mormon demons, Interesting how he’s not playing up his religious convictions like some of the other hopefuls.

    • Sherry says:

      yeah, he seems to pretty much wish it would go away without really addressing it. It’s a huge turn off to the wacko right for sure.

  7. This is fuck up i tell ya

Tell me, what do you think?
