I’m a big fan of the scientific method. Great stuff. Better than Cats. And as such, I’ve been wracking my brain during non-peak cycles to try and figure out if Intelligent Design is falsifiable. Quick explanation for those who aren’t down with falsifiability: a philosopher by the name of Karl Popper came up with a […]

First, there was pie. Now, there’s pie 2. When does it end? Dear god, when does it end?
Heh heh heh. I just found the Cyborg Name gizmo by way of Spoon’s blog. Of all my names, “droth” yielded the best acronym: Very apropos, considering the work I’m doing for Cari right now.
Ow. Ow. Ow. For a non-human, Maya can be quite the bittch. Today was my fourth workout with her, the second one I managed to get all the way through. Each session, she selects a different focus for the workout. Last Friday, it was upper body strength. My biceps are still a little bit sore. […]
My recent interest in RDF has gotten my brain into a grammar-tech mode, and my friend Chuck was kind enough to feed that with this link: Link Grammar. Apparently these folks have put together an English language parser. Very interesting. Haven’t read it or done anything with it yet, but this kind of tech is […]
I just tried my third session with Maya and it didn’t go so well. A big part of it is that I was up until the wee hours of the morning and I’m not well rested. I helped my friend Mark out with a short film he’s making. I got to be the boom operator. […]

Remember those scientists that were wanted by the military when we invaded Iraq because they were working on chemical, biological and nuclear weapons? Well, they are still in prison: Bitch Ph.D. Okay, we know that the weapons programs didn’t exist now. Perhaps there’s a good reason for holding these people anyway. Can we hold a […]
Wow. I had no idea. When I was a kid, I was in pretty good shape. I rode my bike, did martial arts, kept up with all the physical fitness routines in Boy Scouts. But I just got my ass kicked by a short training ride an 15-minute workout at the hands of Maya. My […]
Little reminder for myself: I’ve got a bike ride to do in six weeks, and I am not yet training for it. Might be a good idea to get it in gear (pun intended). Training for the big ride
