Alarming News: I like Morgan Freeberg. A lot.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: We were following a trackback and thinking "hmmm... this is a bloody excellent post!", and then we realized that it was just part III of, well, three...Damn. I wish I'd written those.
Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler: ...I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is an intriguing guy...[he] asks great questions and answers others with style, flair, reason and wit. On the blogroll he goes. Make him a part of your regular blogospheric reading. I certainly will.
Brutally Honest: Morgan Freeberg is brilliant.
Common Sense Junction: Misha @ Anti-Idiotarian never ceases to amaze me. He keeps finding other good blogs. I went over to A.I. this morning for my daily Misha fix and he had found this guy named Morgan Freeberg in Fair Oaks, California, that has a blog, House of Eratosthenes. Freeberg says its "The Blog That Nobody Reads" but it may now become the blog that everybody reads.
Jaded Haven: Good God, Morgan, you cover a topic from front to back with a screwy thoroughness I find mind boggling. I'm in awe of your thought proccesses, my friend, you're an exceptional talent. You start by throwing in the kitchen sink, tie in someone's syphilitic uncle, bend around a rip tide of brilliance and bring it all home in a neat, diamond dripping package of an exceptionally readable moment of damn fine wordsmithing. I love reading you.
Mein Blogovault: Make "the Blog that No One Reads" one of your daily reads.
Philmon: When Morgan meanders, stick with him - he's got a point and it'll be worth it in the end. He's not a hit-and-run snarky quip kind of guy. The pieces all fall into place like tumblers in a lock and bang! He's opened a cognative door for you.
Rightlinx: Morgan at House of Eratosthenes is one of the best writers out there. I read him nearly every day because he manages to provide an interesting perspective, even though I don't always agree.
Poetic Justice: Cletus! Ah gots a laiv one fer yew...
One of my favorite counter-arguments in action. By now it’s old news, but in case you haven’t heard of it here’s a summary. Muslim cleric asshole blames earthquakes on scantily clad, immodest decadent women. So the immodest western decadent women go scantily clad en masse at a designated date and time to see if any earthquakes result. I love it — someone comes out and says something boneheaded, you accentuate the boneheadedness of it by taking it a zillion percent seriously. Pretty much what I do with global warming. Ooh, that reminds me, the coffee’s done I’d better unplug the pot. Only got one planet.
Thus far, everyone who’s heard of Boobquake has been asking the same question: What if an earthquake really does happen, what then?
And I’ve got to wonder: what would it mean if the breast baring does actually bring on an earthquake? I guess the cleric would be proved right, but it would be kind of a cool testament to female power. Not a big, long earthquake, nothing that hurt anyone, just a quickie.
I guess no one knows what will come of Boobquake yet. The only thing evident so far is that women are smarter than men. If men were more intelligent, they would’ve thought this up years ago. Or maybe they did.
Fortunately, Yours Truly is sufficiently mature and restrained to let that comment go and not say anything about it.
Nope, no man has ever thought of anything like this. Your superior intellect is 99% proven…and it’ll be completely undeniable if you post some more pics of your smartness.
The Facebook page is here.
And since you’re wondering, yes it did make Wikipedia. The last paragraph of which (at this time) is pure gold.
That morning, at 10:59 am (0259 GMT), a 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck 195 miles off the coast of Taitung, Taiwan, at a depth of 6.2 miles. McCreight insisted that this Taiwan earthquake alone was not statistically significant, but that she would continue to monitor seismic activity for the next 24 hours. Other participants pointed out that the earthquake in Taiwan occured early in the morning, prior to the official start of the experiment.
Sciencedammit!! Inconclusive results! More experimentation is in order.
What is needed is…and this is a stupid man’s idea, right now, right here…a Boobquake TourTM. Yes, 45 cities in four months, or something. A cast of regulars moving from one site to another to another in a great big bus, being joined at each stop by the locals. And then we could monitor the seismic activity all summer long. On, uh, you know, the earth’s surface that is. Then, I’m sure Seddiqi would end up good and embarrassed.
