A concise guide to the levels of Science in popular science fiction:
Star Trek: This is science-fiction, but we want our science to at least sound plausible. Therefore, most of the time, our scientific explanations will be rooted in scientific fact or at the very least solid, generally accepted theory.
Stargate: We’re about half and half. We try to make it plausible sometimes, but usually you just have to technobabble your way through it.
Star Wars: This man has a laser sword. Why does he have a laser sword? Because laser swords are cool. This is all the explanation you need.
One day, I’m at the horse rescue and another volunteer invites me to come to a different horse-establishment to meet her horse. Of course I said yes! So we made a date, and I met up with her and her horse, and as we’re fussing over her horse and giving him treats, she asks me, have you ever thought of starting to ride again. I (as cheerfully as I can manage) say “nope, I’m too fat.”
We carry on pampering her horse, and the owner of the barn stops by to chat. “So,” she asks, quite innocently like there was no ulterior motive in getting me to visit, “Have you ever considered starting to ride again?”
I do my little nope too fat, shrug, self-deprecating laugh thing.
The barn owner looks me up and down, and says, “We have a couple lesson horses who could handle youno problem. Email me if you’d like to have a lesson sometime!”
I emailed her as soon as I got home, and lessons started the week after singing lessons ended for the summer!
A few observations upon getting back in the saddle after eighteen years on the ground:
- Everything is still there mentally, but the balance and fitness to do what I remember, has left the building
- Riding, especially posting trot, is way more exercise than I remember
- Horses are still very silly, unpredictable animals
- Falling off hurts about the same amount as ever
I need a top up of Mr.Jackson, and poof this gem came across my bow. How could I say no? :)
A big hat-tip to Moe at Whatever Works for posting the video for me to see and then link to here.

Sorry, my friends, but there’s no time to snore. A muslim marxist just declared war. On religion, incentive, freedom to say. We’re in a collective if obama has his way. He’s against profit, so if you are in business, tough luck. I strongly suggest that you wake the fuck up.

Obama has been working his ass off with a do nothing Congress who everybody seems to forget will not do a fucking thing. Ask Eric Cantor and the rest if the rejects we call Republicans who continue to block anything within reason. You people should ask the 1% who suppose to be the job creator class who why they hate unions and why is there a never ending income inequality issue that for some reason they wont fix? You people ned to put your ignorance (prejudice) aside and Wake The Fuck Up.

I was unaware of the meme-status of beast jesus. :)
My friends and I have been hitting the Left 4 Dead pretty hard as of late. Lo and behold, youtube can further feed the fires. This clip won’t make much sense to those who have not played L4Dead, but suffice to say, Francis is one of my favourite characters in the game.
