    Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It’s not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.

    Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn’t Michael Bolton.
    Samir: You know, there’s nothing wrong with that name.

    Michael Bolton: There *was* nothing wrong with it… until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.

    Samir: Hmm… well, why don’t you just go by Mike instead of Michael?

    Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He’s the one who sucks.

    Peter Gibbons: So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that’s on the worst day of my life.

    Dr. Swanson: What about today? Is today the worst day of your life?

    Peter Gibbons: Yeah.

    Dr. Swanson: Wow, that’s messed up.

    Bob Porter: Looks like you’ve been missing a lot of work lately.

    Peter Gibbons: I wouldn’t say I’ve been *missing* it, Bob.

    Tom Smykowski: Well-well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don’t have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can’t you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?

    @VRW I think @shek is referring to slowing down photons (light particles) moving in free space unimpeded by interactions with any material. This was accomplished not by changing the temperature but by changing the shape of the photons themselves.

    ‘We’re Growing With Each Other’

    I bet Mr. Wilson is growing considerably more that Ciara is.

    I think Mr. Beck finally said something intelligent or at the very least engaged in some rational analysis.

    Mr. Trump may think the US is losing wrt to its balance of trade with China, but ask the corporations which are actually doing the trading, like Walmart for instance, they’re winning and have been for a very long time.
    So Walmart and other retailers aren’t going to be very happy if Mr. Trump raises tariffs, since there will be an immediate retaliation from China and Mexico. Walmart will be forced to lay off thousands perhaps tens of thousands of workers.

    This will precipitate a recession and perhaps even a depression.

    Just a small correction, Schwarzchild technically did not predict the existence of black holes, he calculated a unique solution for Einstein’s’ field equations, something even Einstein was only able to approximate (math wasn’t his strong suit). This solution led to the derivation of the Schwarzschild radius, which is the size of the event horizon of a non-rotating black hole.

    Einstein already won the prize in 1921 for the discovery of the photoelectric effect
    John Bardeen is the only one who has won 2 Nobel prizes in physics.

    From 1974, the Statutes of the Nobel Foundation stipulate that a Prize cannot be awarded posthumously, unless death has occurred after the announcement of the Nobel Prize.

    This is yuuuuge! And so fitting that this comes shortly after the 100th anniversary of the publication of the General Theory of Relativity (which predicts the existence of gravitational waves)

    Once again Einstein’s General Theory Of Relativity has withstood another test. This was probably the biggest.
    Just to summarize the theory explained the Precession of the Perihelion of Mercury; predicted gravitational deflection of light around the sun, and now confirmed the existence of gravitational waves. I am not even going to get into Black Holes, the Big Bang, and kick starting the fields of cosmology and astrophysics.

    If there are still any anti-relativists still out there I’d love to hear from you.
    And please don’t bring up quantum mechanics (the fact the Relativity does not square with quantum mechanics doesn not mean it’s wrong).

    Yes two random words out of tens of thousands, isn’t it a coincidence that the Nazis used them together to dehumanize Jews.

    Gotta love this Blaze tweet, appears that the entire $4.1T or at least a substantial percentage, is to “combat terrorism” and “global warming”.

    In reality 88% of the entire budget is for Social Security (33%), Medicare & Health (27%), Military (16%), Interest on Debt (7%), VA benefits (4%), Energy & Environment (1%), and Everything else is 12%.
    So ‘global warming” is a some fraction of the 1% of the Energy and Environment and “terrorism” is some fraction of the 16% (if it’s included in the military budget).

    This is precisely what Mrs. Clinton is claiming wrt her emails.

  • [1] February 9, 2016 at 12:30pm

    I am still waiting for FNC to report that Colin Powell and senior aides to former Secretary of State Condoleezza
    Rice also contained “confidential” or “secret” information.

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/02/04/report-colin-powell-and-aides-to-condoleezza-rice-also-had-confidential-and-secret-info-on-personal-email/

    And if that’s the case will they be indicted along with Mrs. Clinton?

    It’s taking all the willpower I can muster to resist using an ad hominem attack against you.
    That said, do you actually think that Allan Dershowitz, author of “The Case for Israel” is against Israel?

    Recall Mr. Nugent referred to the POTUS as a “subhuman mongrel” and Wolf Blitzer’s response…

    “I mean do they know the history of that phrase, subhuman mongrel? That’s what the Nazis called Jews leading up and during World War II”

    “To justify the genocide of the Jewish community. They called the Jews unter menschen, or subhuman mongrels, if you read some of the literature that the Nazis put out. There’s a long history there of that specific phrase that he used involving the president of the United States.”

    So is anyone really that surprised at this.

    Are you kidding! Mr. Trump has no business running for POTUS and if the US electorate was half sane and not completely celebrity obsessed, he would have 5% support in the polls.

    As far as Mr. Trudeau, he was actually the middle of the road choice in our election, we have three major parties.

    The incumbent, Mr. Harper, was a Jeb Bush type conservative, Mr. Trudeau, a Clinton/Kasich type centrist, and Thomas Mulcair, a Bernie Sanders Democratic socialist.

    I see how this works.

    If you disrespect Mr. Cruz then it’s rude and classless. If you disrespect blacks, women Hispanics, or the LGBT community it’s okay because “the damn PC is ruining this country.”

    Did anyone actually think Mr. Trump wasn’t going to say it, after following the man for past six months?
    This was classic Trump and hilarious.

    Yeah I don’t who it is either…

    I listened to every AM talk radio station in the US, I watched FNC, I read the NY Post, and the WSJ editorial pages, I surfed the Drudge Report, The Blaze, The Daily Caller and Breitbart and there is no sign of it. Where did it go?

  • [-1] February 8, 2016 at 5:14pm

    I can guarantee that if Ted Nugent was performing and he called the POTUS “a communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured, subhuman mongrel.” (which he actually did and apologized after being shamed), or he demanded Mrs. Clinton felate his rifle, the right wing entertainment complex would all be defending his comments, his freedom of speech, and the second amendment.

    So please save the faux outrage.

    So is Mr. Kasich saying he’s to the right of Mr. Sanders and to the left of Mrs. Clinton?

    Actually the Core Jewish Population is about 14M and the so called Enlarged Jewish Population which includes Other Persons of Jewish Parentage, and respective non-Jewish households members is around 20M.

    By whom?
    Certainly not by the 1B muslims.

    But I think you’re missing the point which is the suggestion this protest is somehow antis- Semitic is absurd.
