See Here Saturday: "Flat-flip Flies Straight. Tilted-Flip Curves. Experiment"


Fredrick Morrison, the man who invented the iconic Frisbee flying disc, has died at age 90. Morrison's disc, which he originally called the "Pluto Platter," was later renamed the Frisbee by Wham-O, the company that bought the rights to his invention in 1957. -- Dinosaurs and Robots

Bill Whittle on Civilization. If you haven't read it, you should: "I had tossed myself a mile into the air and landed safe in this Web of Trust." -- THE WEB OF TRUST

It is not we who silence the press.
It is the press that silences us. It is not a case of the Commonwealth settling how much the editors shall say; it is a case of the editors settling how much the Commonwealth shall know. If we attack the press, we shall be rebelling, not repressing. -- G.K. Chesterton @ The Anchoress

If it makes us safer, let's scrap it: Closing Velocity: Video: So Long, Airborne Laser...

You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving North: A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?" The driver replied, "Bout whut?" -- Doug Ross

Darth Vader on the Toilet Hey, when you gotta go....

Democrat Party discipline: why do moderates roll over? neoneocon thinks:
In the absence of strong principles it must hardly seem worth it, and so they go along to get along and hope for the best.

Me? I think the administration just gives them The Full Chicago: “We know where you live and where your children go to school….”

Just when you think high fashion cannot possibly get worse... Walter Van Beirendonck F/W 2010

Your Say

Re. the fashion, in a way I suppose this is inevitable, given that so many designers are gay men. This guy has just taken it to its logical conclusion: the best way for a gay man to make women look really alluring is apparently to bestow upon them a polterwang of massive proportions.

At least, I assume he's gay. If he's straight, I can't even fathom where he's coming from.

Maybe I should have left it at, "Is that a poodle in your pants, or are you just happy to see me?"

I'm surprised that the models consented. Any woman with an atom of self respect would have told the freak who designed that stuff to shove it.

Well, there you go - from what I've heard, models are not often paragons of self-respect. Their whole job is to maintain the physique of a walking clothes hanger, and look the way other people tell them to. Any deviation is met with brutal rejection. Enough of that, and the thought of donning a polterwang would likely elicit not much more than a shrug.

The hollow penis dress on the right appears to be an [uncircumcised] homage to Andrew Sullivan whilst the fashion parasite on the left brings to mind (mine anyways) a hopelessly lost Venusian space trilobite. I'm sure there's some deep and important artistic symbolism intended...Somewhere.

Both unfortunate hosts also appear to have a wee touch of anorexia too; as if the parasites affixed to their vaginas have sucked all the productivity-sustaining coke out of their systems.

Boy do artists suffer for their craft.

hopelessly lost Venusian space trilobite

And here I thought it was an alien facehugger that missed the target.

Hey - didn't John Belushi wear that get-up on the right in an SNL skit? Is this a case of fashion phallgiarism?

Ah, now we know the real reason Alexander McQueen killed himself: penis envy.

It is the dirigible women from the planet Haberdashery!

We must flee!

They call it "high fashion" because the designers are obviously on drugs!

Re: Airborne Laser:

That's the thingey I've been coming up to your neck o' th' woods in Seattle to work on. I was intimately involved in the test Thursday night. It was 10 years of my life.

It was a stunning and unqualified success. That's why Obama is cutting it. It's a demonstration of our former competence and know-how. I was there when.....

Note to self: "Well done. Go find another job."

I just figured it out - the thing that the woman on the left has at crotch level is an elephant's head - trunk, tusks and ears. The other has a rendition of USS Shenandoah.

Or the Oscar Mayer weinermobile.

So, which outfit is Michelle Obama going to wear to what major event?

I say she'll wear both, but I leave it to the rest of you to name the venues for each one.

For Michelle they'll have to take out the skirts in the back a bit (OK, a whole lot).

Have at it!

Those hats should fit Michelle's hubby's ultra-swollen head.
