The Digital Pack-Rat, volume 5

Just collecting a few odds and ends...

From a PZ thread “Magic isn’t science”...

The Discovery folks, in defiance of science,
Pretend that their methods are new and improved;
The cost of believing in magic is tragic--
These people have clearly had brain parts removed!

From a fun little Friday Cephalopod post (nom nom nom nom)...

A small blue fish--it's all I wish;
A crunchy, chewy, tasty dish!
Each little bite is pure delight--
I'd nom nom nom all day and night!

Every day, the inky deep
Is where a cuttlefish may creep
That little fish? Today it's him--
Tomorrow, children as they swim!

From "Well, maybe it is exactly like their brains",

The experts say, in their reports,
The frontal lobe is made of quartz.

The temporal--they checked it twice--
Is made of something else: that's gneiss.

What's more, it's clear that your parietal
Is chert--a sort of flint varietal.

I'm not sure what makes up your occipital,
Whatever it is, it doesn't chip-at-all.

And lastly, from Sarah Palin: Ignorant and anti-science...

One wonders: will Palin prevail in detailin'
The follies of funding the fruit-flies in France?
Or will this disclosure expose her composure
Is stunningly stupid--a stultified stance?
