What a delicious idea for dinner

Wouldn't it be awesome to go see a goat being butchered WHILE dining on goat meat?

Yeah, fucking grosses me out as well. Not the live butchering, the eating of goat. Ugh.

Today The Blog, Tomorrow...

Sure, being a world-famous blogger is a great ego massage, but why stop there?

Astronomers have spotted the most Earth-like planet to date, a massive ocean world that probably has an atmosphere and — though it’s highly unlikely — may support life. And it needs a better name.

For now, GJ 1214b is tagged according to standard exoplanetary nomenclature: the technical name of the star it orbits, plus a letter to signify the order of its discovery. (The letter “a” is reserved for the star itself.) It’s a name only a committee could love, and hardly appropriate to the discovery’s emotional resonance.

“We’ve been finding exciting planets for 50 years, and we’re still calling them by these terrible catalog names,” said David Charbonneau, a Harvard University astronomer who helped discover GJ 1214b, but doesn’t even have a nickname for it. “I have three young daughters, and I think they might be inspired by a better name.”

How about giving us all a nice Christmas present by going here and putting down a vote for Planet McBlogger? (Suck it, Burka!)

Could this kill telecom immunity?

Ever since Telecom Immunity passed last year, we've been wondering if anyone was working on a way to sue telecom companies for participating in an illegal domestic spying program. And lo and behold, someone has been doing just that.

We Will All Go Together When We Go

Some worry that the world will collapse into a black hole when scientists fire up the Giant Hadron Collider today. I say bring it on! It would certainly help with a couple of pesky deadlines at work. Not to mention getting a phone call from Sister Ruth every time there's a new presidential poll out.

Hillary Supporters: The Weaker Sex

We are emotional because the Fort Worth Star-Telegram says so. They forgot to mention hysterical. Because of all the hysterectomies. And weepy. And, unable to fix our own toilets. Or, take out the trash.

Sadly, we are emotional, bitchy, screechy, cry babies. Alternately, if we are men, we are weak, pathetic, bitter and unintelligent.

But Obama can't afford to move too quickly toward the general election, or he will risk alienating Clinton supporters who are already emotional about the likelihood of their chosen candidate's closely fought defeat.

Save us, Obama!

The Whole Enchilada

Some theoretical physicists devote their careers to the search for the Grand Unified Field Theory, explaining the relationship between gravitation, electromagnetism, and sub-atomic forces. In like fashion, some conspiracy theorists hunt their own holy grail, a grand unified conspiracy theory that ties together everything from the Freemasons and the Defenestration of Prague to the Kennedy assassination and Rick Perry's hair in one handy ball of tinfoil. This video doesn't quite succeed, but you'll have to admit progress is being made.

Man Bites Dog

So I saw this story linked over on Texas Kaos about some English performance artist eating a dog in one of those nutty stunts that animal rights fanatics do to demonstrate that, uh, something or other. I think the most delicious part of the tale was

Yoko Ono, featured on the same radio program, also tasted a bit of the dog, McGowan said. Ono's spokesman did not immediately return calls or e-mails seeking comment.

Was Yoko having doubts she was already going to Hell for breaking up the Beatles?
