Patterico's Pontifications

10/20/2011

Hi There!

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:57 pm

It’s me, the proprietor of this here blog site.

I’m still alive! Really.

I have been very busy lately. It (virtually) all revolves around work. One phase of my busy-ness will be over Saturday. The second phase will be over by the end of the year. The third phase — the only one I can discuss with you now, which is my very busy assignment — will continue for a few years.

Then there is the part that doesn’t revolve around work. That is probably the most interesting story of all. I will tell it one day. But right now there are reasons I cannot.

I would tell you more, but I have become circumspect about my private life lately. Why, just this morning, someone on the Internet told me he wants to punch me in the face repeatedly and “shit” on my wife. So I think it would be a mistake to be open with you about precisely what is keeping me busy. There are too many cretins eager to take advantage of such information.

The Internet, it kind of sucks, really. You should get off it.

Anyway, I just wanted to reassure you that I haven’t died. And I have a post planned for early next week, about the coarseness of Internet speech, featuring an interview with someone who wished for Andrew Breitbart to “die.” I don’t plan to reveal personal information about her or embarrass her. I just want to discuss the attitudes that lead people to do things like wish for other people’s death on the Internet. Or to proclaim that they want to punch people and “shit” on their wives.

Anyway. This is just me saying: I’m still around. I haven’t abandoned you or the blog entirely. I just have a lot going on right now.

Hang in there. And thank Karl and Aaron daily, will you?

Al Gore Fakes a CO2 Demonstration

One of the key elements of a proper scientific experiment is that it can be replicated.  So when the crazed sex poodle Al Gore put out a video claiming that global cooling global warming climate change could be proven by a simple high school experiment, Anthony Watts of “Watts Up With That?” decided to replicate Gore’s experiment and his results are interesting.  Read/watch the whole thing.  And if you don’t believe Mr. Watts, replicate it for yourself.

All of which raises the question: if it’s all good science, why do they have to fake it?  Certainly it is hard to justify screwing up our economy for these idiots.
