Tamino uses math to describe how denialists handle data, but I prefer visuals

What is it with cats and boxes?

I thought that was Eli's approach to Fukushima.

They have no idea how silly they look trying to back out of something when their arse is in the air.

A most intelligent creature- It has every right to expect a mouse in a computer box.

Brian said...

I guess one difference here from the denialists is that the cat recognizes it has a problem.

Maru does it better. What, you mean you never heard of Maru, star of YouTube?

Hey, that furry creature ain't a Rabett at all. It's a cat. And not a cool cat. More like a Clumsy Cat.

Russell Seitz makes an excellent point that the cat is looking for a mouse in a computer box.

But what if the computer box came from the Apple corporation? Think cats like Apples? Do Apples have mice?

I thought apples had worms. And so do dogs.

And what about people? Some people were involved in the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diet_of_Wurms>Diet of Wurms</a>* way back in 1521, in response to a Papel bull.

And that's no bull, it's a horse of a different color.

*as Casey Stengal once said, you can look it up.

Now THAT was a post worth repeating! Thanks be for laughter.

Wormtongue was the prototype of denial.

John had best ask Dr. Alex Seitz about the Diet of Wurms, as he was on duty there in case Luther had a cow .

He may be reachable through SEPP, as he has been dead long enough to qualify for Fred Singer's ouija Board of Directors.

One might say that Dr. Seitz comprises the diet of worms.
