Happy Tau Day !



Tau Day, the counterpart to the idea of March 14 (3/14, as in 3.14) being Pi Day. The idea comes from “theoretical physicist” Michael Hartl who has a particular bugbear: he hates the idea of putting the emphasis on the ratio of circumference to diameter.

Something else that's special about today:

6/28 is the only day of the year where both the day of the month and the number of the month are perfect numbers: that is, a number that equals the total of the numbers it can be divided by, such as 1+2+3=6 or 1+2+4+7+14=28.

Special Kitty


I thought I'd try Walmart's Special Kitty Premium Cat Food and see if Stanley liked it. When I opened the can, there was a bunch of water and oil. It looked and smelled bad (for cat food). Stanley tried a few bites. Hours later I noticed that even the ants wouldn't eat it.

I thought of feeding the remaining cans to the strays... but I don't hate them.

I know !

Wisconsin Supreme Court Smack Liberal Activist Judge Upside The Head












Union thugs and Moonbat Judge Maryann Sumi hardest hit.

Madison - Acting with unusual speed, the state Supreme Court on Tuesday reinstated Gov. Scott Walker's plan to all but end collective bargaining for tens of thousands of public workers.

The court found a committee of lawmakers was not subject to the state's open meetings law, and so did not violate that law when they hastily approved the measure and made it possible for the Senate to take it up. In doing so, the Supreme Court overruled a Dane County judge who had struck down the legislation, ending one challenge to the law even as new challenges are likely to emerge.

The majority opinion was by Justices Michael Gableman, David Prosser, Patience Roggensack and Annette Ziegler. The other three justices - Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson and Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and N. Patrick Crooks - concurred in part and dissented in part.

The opinion voided all orders in the case from the lower court. It came just before 5 p.m., sparing Republicans who control the Legislature from taking up the contentious issue of collective bargaining again.

Legislative leaders had said they would have inserted the limits on collective bargaining into the state budget late Tuesday if the court hadn't acted by then. But the high court ruled just before that budget debate was to begin.

The Assembly is to take up the budget Tuesday night.

The court ruled that Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi's ruling, which had held up implementation of the collective bargaining law, was void ab initio, or invalid from the outset.

In its decision, the state's high court concluded that "choices about what laws represent wise public policy for the state of Wisconsin are not within the constitutional purview of the courts."

The court concluded that Sumi exceeded her jurisdiction, "invaded" the Legislature's constitutional powers and erred in halting the publication and implementation of the collective bargaining law.

The court added that its role is limited to determining whether the Legislature employed a "constitutionally violative process in the enactment of the act. We conclude that the Legislature did not violate the Wisconsin Constitution by the process it used."

Jim Orsello, A Great American Hero

Fake gator solves Woodbury neighborhood's goose poop problem

Jim Orsello is the hero of his Woodbury neighborhood for solving a miserable problem - goose poop.

His apartment complex was thrown into a fecal furor this spring when an infestation of geese carpeted lawns and sidewalks with the birds' stinky nuggets.

Orsello's solution - deception - was as old as nature itself. He installed a floating alligator head in a nearby pond. Today, the geese, and their dreaded dung, are gone.

"It worked very well," said Orsello, a 67-year-old living in Applewood Pointe, a retirement complex.

He first saw a similar decoy gator head while visiting a relative in St. Louis and ordered one online. He didn't know, however, if it would work 800 miles north of the native habitat of alligators.

Fortunately, geese aren't known for their brains. They were unable to figure out that alligators don't live in states known for ice fishing.

Orsello said the gator head doesn't fool anything else, including his neighbors and their pets. Even ducks aren't deceived, he said, and treat it like any other floating piece of debris.

But geese hate it.

The head consists of a rubber mask stretched over a frame lined with plastic foam. It can float freely in a pond, the way Orsello set it up, or be anchored to the bottom, and it comes with sinister yellow eyes to strike primordial fear into avian hearts.

Ohio Restaurant Closes One Week After Obama Mentions It In Speech



Click on the pic to enlarge
.

An Ohio restaurant mentioned last week by President Barack Obama as an indirect beneficiary of the government’s Chrysler bailout will go out of business Sunday after a more than 70-year history.

Co-owner Richard Lawrence of New Chet’s Restaurant in Toledo says business has fallen victim to the economy and the workplace smoking ban approved by Ohio voters in 2006. He told The Blade newspaper of Toledo on Wednesday that auto industry cutbacks also hurt.

Lawrence says he used to deliver up to $300 in food per week to Chrysler Group LLC’s Jeep plant in Toledo, but now that’s down to about $100 worth.

Obama visited the plant on Friday and told workers that without them, who would eat at Chet’s or patronize other local businesses?

“And this plant indirectly supports hundreds of other jobs right here in Toledo,” President Obama said to hundreds of workers in Chrysler’s Wrangler plant. ”After all, without you, who‘d eat at Chet’s or Inky‘s or Rudy’s?”

Everything Obama touches turns to crap.
If I owned Inky‘s or Rudy’s I'd be nervous.

Gingrich Aides Quit

Sitting




HealthWatch: Sitting Vs. Smoking
Smoking cigarettes is the cause of so much preventable, deadly disease. But now new research shows sitting for long stretches of time may be just as dangerous.

“Smoking certainly is a major cardiovascular risk factor and sitting can be equivalent in many cases,” explained Dr. David Coven, cardiologist with St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York.

Dr. Coven said several new studies show prolonged sitting is now being linked to increased risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and even early death.
Great.
So soon we'll see sitting and non-sitting sections in restaurants followed in a few years by banning sitting in public places.

EDWARD


EDWARD - Electric Diwheel With Active Rotation Damping

This project by students in the School of Mechanical Engineering, the University of Adelaide involved the construction of a human operated diwheel called EDWARD. Many diwheels in the past have been human powered or powered by IC engines. This one is purely electric. It has additional functionality lacking in other models, including inbuilt dynamic lateral stability and slosh control to prevent "gerbiling" or tumbling in aggressive braking or acceleration maneuvers. The diwheel also incorporates a unique feature that allows the rider to drive the vehicle when "upside down" - keeping the vehicle in its unstable state.

This video shows the outcomes from the developments during 2010, which includes successful slosh control, swing-up and inversion control.

Weiner's Press Conference was FAKE!!

At least SquareBoy has a sense of humor over at Daily Kos.
The same mainstream media that tried to convince us that everything is bad for your health and curling is the next big thing, is now trying to convince us that Anthony Weiner has given a press conference in which he "acknowledged" Tweeting certain photographs, took some questions, and apologized to everyone including his wife and Andrew Breitbart. This charade was all a right-wing fabrication.

Go read the whole thing.

It's pretty funny. He calls out some of the stupidity that the Kos Kids tried the past week.

Andrew Breitbart Hacks Anthony Weiner Conference



In an unlikely and extremely entertaining twist, Andrew Breitbart took the podium at a press conference scheduled by Congressman Anthony Weiner in New York City. Breitbart discussed the circumstances surrounding the Weinergate scandal, which was broken on Big Government and Big Journalism. He also challenged the media to name one lie he has told or reported; there was no discernible response from the crowd of Manhattan journalists.

Breitbart told a Fox News reporter, “of course this wasn’t a set up… I went to the podium because a gaggle of press people asked me.” Breitbart went on to say “Congressman Weiner made much of last week about trying to blame me…I felt I needed to set the record straight.”

I love Andrew Breitbart, like a Viking.

D-DAY


67 years ago today.
Operation Overlord
Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.

But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!

I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!

Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

~ Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower

Bank Foreclosure



This is too sweet.

A bank foreclosure story you've got to see to believe. A Collier County couple turns the tables on Bank of America, the bank that tried to foreclose on their home. Now, the family is foreclosing on the bank! Even bringing trucks and deputies ready to seize property.

The foreclosure nightmare started when Warren and Maureen Nyerges paid cash for a home owned by Bank of American in the Golden Gate Estates. They never had a mortgage whatsoever. But, the bank fouled it up and wound up issuing a foreclosure through their attorney.

The couple took their case to court and after a year and a half nightmare the foreclosure was dropped. A Collier County judge said Bank of America has to pay the couple's $2,534 legal fees for the error. After more than five months the bank still hadn't paid up. So, the homeowners' attorney did just what the bank would do to get their money, legally seize their assets.

"I instructed the deputy to go in and take desks, computers, copiers, filing cabinets, including cash in the drawers," Attorney Todd Allen told WINK News.
