Coffee Cup

Sony played this at their executive conference this year. (tip to Pedantsareus)

A nice article on expert testimony and our legal system.

The island scrub jay is found only on rugged Santa Cruz Island. Biologists are vaccinating the bird against the West Nile virus, which could swiftly wipe out the species.

um... this year's conference, or a few years ago? I think the video is still good, but even the updated version is two years old. I can't help but be a bit snarky about that...

Sony's mission: "To experience the joy of advancing and applying technology for the benefit of the public."

"- And we'll start by showing a 2 year old youtube video at our executive committee meeting!"

Thanks for posting that whyevolutionistrue letter. It's good to see a shaft of light penetrate the gloom once in a while.

I feel guilty.

First thing that jumped at me about that letter was: how can a recently liberated creationist have such good grammar?

I guess his answer pretty much nails it. When I started reading English books it was kinda hard even though I'd studied for years in school. Literature and even pop science books (which often tell a narrative) are great ways to learn like that. Then I bought a cheap book of Poe stories, and I learned words like "countenance"...

First thing that jumped at me about that letter was: how can a recently liberated creationist have such good grammar?

But it makes perfect sense. This is a person who reads and asks questions. Just the kind of creationist you'd expect to become an ex-creationist.
