One year ago today at the Wisconsin protests: "Are you a Walker plant?"

"I'm an Althouse plant." And I really don't get the symbolism of the string. Plus... lots of pizza boxes.

And Dan Riehl examines the threat against me and Meade:
... Shankman said he believes in what he called the “law of privilege.” As best as I could interpret it, it meant that if the majority of Madison residents were progressive and didn’t want an Ann Althouse in their midst, then they are somehow entitled to make it unpleasant enough for her to live there, so that she’ll leave.
People thought they could run us out of town!

So what's the Shankster up to these days? I'm still meaning to run into his panhandling ass somewhere. And when I do, his coin collection is going to get place-kicked two blocks, at least, toward Lake Monona. Ka-ching, ka-ching, ching, ching, ching.

Were those goodhearted young ladies who seemed so open to multiple theories lecturing at the university on String Theory?

String theory is an active research framework in particle physics that attempts to reconcile quantum mechanics and general relativity. It is a contender for a theory of everything (TOE), a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms of matter.

The theory has its origins in an effort to understand the strong force, the dual resonance model (1969). Subsequent to this, five different superstring theories were developed that incorporated fermions and possessed other properties necessary for a theory of everything

It does seem like they are trying very hard to embarrass you about being a Wisconsinite. They have even enlisted the State Supreme Court, but you seem to still hold tight.

We'll see if you can stick it out after they get Iron Dave Prosser to take a bite out of Bradley's ears, and that big fat hunger striking guy gets elected governor.

I hope those pizza boxes weren't just thrown in the trash. They have historical significance. They need to be in a museum or something, then maybe someone will actually read them. Nothing says "I have something important to say" like writing on pizza box.

I mean, that's almost as lame as commenting on someones blog late on a Sunday night.

"Skyrme's original example involved fields which take values on a three-dimensional sphere, the original nonlinear sigma model which describes the large distance behavior of pions. In Skyrme's model, reproduced in the large N or string approximation to quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the proton and neutron are fermionic topological solitons of the pion field."

I think we reconciled this last year in a thread concerning An American Idol episode. That's how I remember it anyway.

Ahhh, that 'law of privilege' thing.

The one that says, 'I'm the boss of you'. The one older siblings invoked, just because they were bigger, or could more easily reach the cookie jar.

Childish, really.

Fascinating how exposure to the light of truthd made them scurry back into the woodwork.

Some images really do apply.

Where can I buy an Althouse plant? On second thought, scratch that. Probably requires expensive nutrients.

Shankman actually believes that we should still live in medieval times and the villagers should be able to form a pitchfork and torch wielding mob and violate other civil rights at will for holding an unpopular idea.

I think we need to start banishing un-Americans like Shankman to Europe or the Middle East, where they still desire Mob Rule and don't desire individual civil rights. They will fit right in.

Where would I come stay next October when the Badgers lose to MSU in football?

"Repressive tolerance" comes to Madison. So what's new?
