Above Us Only Sky

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

"Just some of the everyday phrases we owe our wonderful 450 year old birthday boy." - @stephenfry

How about “Shit Happens.”

The reason ‘consensus’ has not appeared to work in society at large to date isn’t because it’s ineffective — it’s because there is a well-funded countermovement out there that takes every opportunity to mislead the public into thinking that there isn’t a consensus,
What’s great about [triple plays] isn’t really their scarcity but the fact that they beautifully illustrate the invisible force that hovers about each pitch and play and inning and game in this pausing, staccato, and inexorably accruing pastime: the laws of chance.

"Will you come in Miss Wonderly?"

A voice said, “Thank you,” so softly that only the purest articulation made the words intelligible, and a young woman came through the doorway. She advanced slowly, with tentative steps, looking at Spade with cobalt-blue eyes that were both shy and probing.

She was tall and pliantly slender, without angularity anywhere. Her body was erect and high-breasted, her legs long, her hands and feet narrow. She wore two shades of blue that had been selected because of her eyes. The hair curling from under her blue hat was darkly red, her full lips more brightly red. White teeth glistened in the crescent her timid smile made.

Rush Limbaugh says CBS has “declared war on the heartland” by hiring Stephen Colbert 

Rush, as usual, is speaking to the choir. His audience of mostly white, mostly male seniors and blue-collar rural men isn’t the Letterman audience anyway. Those people don’t watch Letterman now and they won’t watch Colbert when he replaces Dave.

Why does the media even listen to Rush. His audience is literally dying everyday. And Rush is one cheesesteak away from a massive stroke himself.

By the way, Limbo’s “heartland” is a members-only golf club in Florida, with a private wine cellar for each member and a parking lot full of Hummers and Escalades. Rush wouldn’t know the true American Heartland, if his limo broke down in the middle of it.

UN finding on climate change is just a bunch of hot air, new report claims 

I think for a major news organization like Fox to purposely question the work of 97% of climate scientists with a bogus report put out by a politically based agency is not only discusting, it should be criminal. The advertising industry has to meet harsh standards for fact-based product claims. Shouldn’t a "news" organization have to back up what they tell the public in the same way? The Heartland Institute came up with a phony climate organization called "The Non-governmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC)." The Heartland Institute, is a Libertarian lobbying group from Chicago, with yearly profits in excess of 14 million dollars. In the past the same organization has also defended the tobacco industry regarding cancer research and the fracking industry regarding ground water pollution. Just like the doctors who took money from the tabacco industry, here are 30 scientists getting paid to question hundreds of thousands of serious climate scientists. And Fox is using this report as a news source for global warming information to their audience? Are you kidding me? Sell another bottle of Snake Oil, boys!!
