Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life
My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

Mystery Men is a fun film about a handful of unusual superheros who, naturally, must save the world. It's fun, that is, if you understand the one crucial bit of info that makes it all make sense. Otherwise, it's just a strange little film that you put in the corner and feel mildly uncomfortable about. (Warning: Spoilers follow!)
Maybe it's just because I have a son who refuses to go poo in the potty, but when I first saw this license plate -- BM4ME -- I completely failed to notice that it was on a BMW.
The folks over in Kansas are at it again. Yes, they haven't yet made it into the 19th century, let alone the age of technicolor. However, it seems not everyone is enamored by the idea of (un)intelligent design.
Some folks are demanding equal time for the equally logical and equally believable Flying Spaghetti Monster theory. I'm all for it, especially since it involves pirates. And there's even a really cool car plaque on the way!
Meanwhile, if you want to get a more precise handle on exactly why "intelligent design" is not science, the Continental Op over at Red Harvest pointed me to a British newspaper which has an excellent article on the subject.
