Dear Santa, thank you for the dolls and pencils and the fish. It's Easter now, so I hope I didn't wake you but... honest, it is an emergency. There's a crack in my wall. Aunt Sharon says it's just an ordinary crack, but I know its not cause at night there's voices so... please please can you send someone to fix it? Or a policeman, or...
Back in a moment.
Thank you Santa.

Shoulda Known

That was the season finale of House.  (Part 1 last week, part 2 today.)

But while the second half of the finale of House had some problems, it was better than Bones, which just spontaneously retroactively self-destructed through force of sheer boneheaded idiocy.

Bones doesn't so much jump the shark as skin the shark alive, boil the flesh from its cartilage, grind the cartilage into powder, make soup from the powder, feed the soup to hungry beetles, blend the beetles into porridge, and shoot the porridge into the Sun.

Can we have the writers' strike back, please?

Firefox 3

I thought they'd almost fixed the awful bar in beta 5; with RC1, it's back in all its craptastic glory.  It's the most completely worthless "enhancement" I've seen since Vista's "A program wants to do something!!!" nag screens.

In Firefox 2, if I want to go to Chizumatic, I type a c in the url bar.  That brings up Chizumatic (http://chizumatic.mee.nu), Cute Overload (http://cuteoverload.com) and other sites whose urls start with c.  I hit down arrow once or twice, and enter, and there I am.

In Firefox 3, the way it works is, well, it wipes all your history and doesn't do anything at all.  But after that, the way it works is, it brings up sites at random where the url or the title of the page or the name of the sites in your history or bookmarks or elsewhere in its tiny, confused mind, has a c in it somewhere.  Anywhere at all.  And displays two lines of text per site, so it wastes space and is much harder to read.

It's a complete pile of crap, and you can't set it back to the old way that actually worked.

Zero out of ten for style, and minus several million for good thinking.  Wonder if Innova Editor works in Opera yet...

Aigh! Bastiges!

Really good episode of House this week.  Right up until it stops.

Darn two-parters.

Over The Edge

Ben Stein has lost the plot:
Stein: Love of God and compassion and empathy leads you to a very glorious place, and science leads you to killing people.
I thought he was just a lying weasel.  In fact, he's stark raving mad.

Return Of The Stupid

There's a pre-update update available from the Intention Experiment loons.  Under the headline Are we all Qigong masters? First feedback about our Water Structure Intention Experiment, Lynn McTaggart writes:
Although the scientists are not finished examining their data, they have told me one thing: they’ve seen results they’ve never seen before with their equipment.

One reason it is taking so long is that our water had a great deal of variation an hour before the experiment was run. This could mean that our anticipation of the event began to affect the water. Or it could mean that our hypothesis is wrong.

Or it could mean that with intention, we are emanating an energy like a Qigong master, which is being picked up by the spectroscopy before the event.
Or it could be that your scientists are incompetent clowns who bollixed up a simple procedure.
The scientists chose to use Raman spectroscopy because they discovered one published study showing that Qigong Grandmaster called Dr. Yan Xin significantly altered the structure of a water sample, as measured by a Raman spectrometer, when he sent his Qi from a place seven kilometers away from the water sample.
So, not because Raman spectroscopy is actually suited to the task, or they are particularly familiar with the procedure, but because someone else found a unicorn with it.

Some of the comments following the post are so stupid that I am tempted to believe that they are satirical, but my hopes have been dashed too many times for that.
