Thanks to Dreamvirus for my first C! since one-dimensional. Story of my life... sigh...

In any event, the races appear to be settling down except for the mortals - Electric Rock Ring is now tied with Wise but Fallible for first again, with Candles of Snow again in third. Meanwhile, Shield of Soup has fallen back as is no longer the third hindsight. Two horses are tied for the third passion as Thankful Guilt has pulled up to Electric Rock Ring.

Top of the morning to you race fans. No change among the leaders if any of our races today. The Father has fallen back and is now tied for third with dollarization among the mortals. Scavenger Creations has pulled ahead of Freedom from Dichotomies to become the thrid balance. Baptism of Fire has pulled in as the second hindsight, as Rainbow Vale and Shield of Soup are now tied for third. And finally, Odyssey's Mime has become the second passion, while Crown of Stone has maneuvered into third.

Thanks to Candle for keeping my memory "intact" (and many other things as well ;)

Candle say her first words in the catbox today. She was cute =)
I really don't think that's fair = at -10 has garnered more votes from the other side than even Do we really take Jesus and his Gospel seriously? at -7.
In other news, networked administration has joined bug as a passionless node.

As of today, the following are my most passion generating nodes:
24 Coca-Cola and Guatemala
24 gold standard
23 Intellectual property is theft
23 Sanctuary, defiant nuns, and an underground railroad
21 The Truman Show
00 bug is currently my only passionless node.

Stavr0 says C!ed The Truman Show just to screwup your homenode stats ;-)
Thanks to Stavr0 for lifting it out of the rat race to join the rest of my C!ed nodes as a junior member. Idolatry is back at number one, the crowd goes wild!

My second nodeshell challenge, (((((o))))) (softlinked to timequake), is utterly destroyed by old Kal.

A perfect example of how incredibly ridiculous scientific theory can sometimes get.

The thesis of the experiment basically states that the cat is both alive and dead until the box is opened. When the box is opened and the cat is observed, then the cat makes up it's mind what the hell it is and 'collapses' into that state, alive or dead.

Sounds pretty silly. That's because it is.

Yes, according to current theory it is perfectly plausible, and even makes a certain kind of sense. That only goes to show how incomplete the current quantum physics theory is. It's not indicative of some 'weirdness' in the Universe. The Universe isn't weird; under some circumstances it might look that way, but the Universe simply is.

Phlogiston chemistry sounded pretty weird, too. It was also wrong.

When something is silly, don't be afraid to say so, no matter how many 'respected scientists' say it's not. much for diversity of thought...
