A new element has been found..

Research has led to the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science.

The new element, Governmentium (Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction which would normally take less than a second to take anytime from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of two to six years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which some of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as the critical morass.

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium, since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

New home

Well, as you can see I’ve made a move to WordPress. The importer worked smoothly in importing my posts over from Blogger and so far things are looking good. I just need to find out how to import Haloscan comments over. There are some scripts available as plug-ins for WordPress it would seem from the little research I’ve done via Google, so in the next few days I’ll play around and see what I can (or cannot) do.

I’d gotten tired of Blogger’s inadequacies.

Update: It seems it is possible to use plugins to do a transfer and match up of the Haloscan comments with the posts – but unfortunately only if I use a host other than WordPress.com. Some clever guys out there have written scripts that can do it easy. WordPress.com do not allow the upload of plugins by users. Bummer! I just can’t afford to pay for a different host right now, so I’m sorry guys, but the Haloscan comments will have to remain MIA for now. Perhaps later…

Happy Christmas to all my online friends

I want to say to you all that I hope you have a good day.

Our Lord never asked us to celebrate His birthday. If anything we have the command to celebrate instead His death and resurrection. On the other hand it is good to meditate on the wonder of the Lord of all and creator of the same lowering Himself to being born into a human body so He could live a sinless life and be a perfect sacrifice for our sins.

This date the 25th December is certainly not the right date, any more than the way we celebrate is anything other than tradition that is mostly pagan. I’m not one to particularly care about the gift giving and all the other guff the commercial world encourages. My loved ones know I care and I do take the time on this day to call and tell them I love them. If my loved ones were into the gift giving I probably would put some effort into that side of things, but they don’t care about that any more than I do. Bless them, they far prefer to hear me telling them than to have me ‘prove’ it to them with presents. There are times when I do enjoy gift giving, but that happens at any time and I don’t associate it with Christmas or birthdays. There are many words and actions that come from the heart and are a far better proof of love and which happen naturally from a loving heart. My own friends certainly proved that (and in spades!) with my recent heart attack, operation and recovery.

So, despite not being a believer in this whole modern Christmas thing, I do wish all those who do enjoy it a great day of remembrance of Him our Savior and a day full of peace and love. Happy Christmas, my friends.

More proof of the evil of Islam (as if it’s needed)

I saw this video over at Pam Geller’s ‘Atlas Shrugs’ blog. To say I’m filled with disgust is an understatement. This kind of rationalizing of evil is evil in it’s purest form, and since much of the same kind of abuse of women and young female children goes on in Islamic countries, it just shows how demonic this religion is. We think there is no way any normal thinking person can possibly justify this kind of stuff, but here it is. In our fallen human state we are all capable of just about any evil if we sear our consciences long enough and are propagandized enough, but I’m glad this kind of evil still fills me with loathing.

I will add the usual rider – don’t hate the Muslim people, as they are terribly deceived. But we should sure hate this religion – I sure do.

Crushing Boots And Crib Restraints

by Kim du Toit

I spotted this article from Kim’s site today and thought it worthy of repeating here.

Especially significant is this telling quote from Alexis de Tocqueville:

[Democratic despotism] seeks only to keep them fixed irrevocably in childhood; it likes citizens to enjoy themselves provided that they think only of enjoying themselves… . It willingly works for their happiness; but it wants to be the unique agent and sole arbiter of that; it provides for their security, foresees and secures their needs, facilitates their pleasures, conducts their principal affairs, directs their industry, regulates their estates, divides their inheritances; can it not take away from them entirely the trouble of thinking and the pain of living? … [This power] extends its arms over society as a whole; it covers its surface with a network of small, complicated, painstaking, uniform rules through which the most original minds and the most vigorous souls cannot clear a way to surpass the crowd; … it does not tyrannize, it hinders, compromises, enervates, extinguishes, dazes, and finally reduces each nation to being nothing more than a herd of timid and industrious animals of which the government is the shepherd.

Is this not a near perfect description of what our western societies are becoming/have become? Keep the sheep happy and they’ll put up with almost anything..

From what I read of what’s happening in the US, everything is super-regulated these days – you have to have a permit from government to do anything, pretty well. Want to make a change to you house? Heavy fines and pull it down please sir if you do it without a permit. It’s certainly that way here in Australia.

I’ve been aware of these losses of freedom for some time, but Kim’s post of Tocqueville’s words is right on the money, and considering Tocqueville’s words were written in the 1800’s, an almost prophetic look into the future.
