The letter "i" is used to connect word elements (diversiform: divers-i-form) because it is the stem vowel of nouns and adjectives used in combination in Latin, as transferred to Middle English through French.

There's no link here; I just thought that was a neat bit of etymology.   permanent link


I have a theory about A Miracle of Science: it could be bunnies.   permanent link


An archaeological team in England, undertaking a dig over the course of several months, discovered that they were excavating not a Viking site but a 1940s patio. Among the medieval Nordic items unearthed were a World War II child's gas mask and a TV remote.   permanent link

A little levity centering on Mars: Why did the Spirit rover stop responding for a while? Where did Spirit land?   permanent link

I'll bet German has a word that means "beautifully mad." English needs a word like that to describe the renaming of King County, Washington to...King County, Washington. The county was previously named after a slaveowner named William King, and was renamed after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.   permanent link

You had me at "Death From Above."

Want to see Roger Ebert go postal on a bad film?

I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it.   permanent link

I've gotta handful of vertebrae and a headful of mad!

I'm not up to date on the worlds of IRC and chatrooms, but even I can enjoy the antics of Elf Only Inn. It starts out with static, unchanging images meant to imitate chatroom icons but evolves into a hand-drawn comic over the course of time. Vulcan Dopeslap!   permanent link

I guess I'm just an old mad scientist at bottom. Give me an underground laboratory, half a dozen atom-smashers, and a beautiful girl in a diaphanous veil waiting to be turned into a chimpanzee, and I care not who writes the nation's laws.

Look up your birthday star. It's not astrology, it's a website that will determine which star's light has taken the entire time you've been alive to reach Earth. As of today, the light arriving from Zeta Herculis left that star around the time I was born.   permanent link
