The actual sunrise time was 5:27 — rounded off to the nearest minute. I'd say I hit it right on the nose.

But there's no sun in sight. Just solid clouds. It's what I call a Type #1 sunrise.

"Despite knowing when life first appeared on Earth, scientists still do not understand how life occurred, which has important implications for the likelihood of finding life elsewhere in the universe. A new paper shows how an analysis using a statistical technique called Bayesian inference could shed light on how complex extraterrestrial life might evolve in alien worlds."

I've always found it interesting that single-celled organisms existed for billions of years before the first multicellular organisms appeared about .6 billion years ago.

Lewis, I deleted your comment because you violated the rule against putting in extra spaces between paragraphs. You had, like, 10. Can't do that.

Lewis said...

Choose Me is beautiful because it's a commedy/tragedy about how to be good to each other, even if your mad!

I shall. not, do that. in future! Bollocks. I just say things you want to suppress. - Or Rather, your libertarian instincts say "Don't suppress him yet - he has to break the rules - explicitly"

Lewis said...

If I irritate you - forgive me - it's a bad time for all of us - some of us it's worse, some love it - sorry - you know I respect you

Lewis said...

It's very good joke, Anne 'extra spaces' - never heard that one - just say you don't like me - be honest, for fuck sake. Simple stragedy - block for two wreaks - or forever - you can do that both by blocking the origin but also the name - I will never pretend to be other - completely a flat fish - never pretended otherwise - that's you lot hate me.

Ferdinandstein: You mean when and where the rare trace single and multiple orgasms have been luckily discovered preserved in the Rock record. Lithification of animal body parts is a rare thing. The current map of paleontology is less then 1% of the terrain. This is the hole Bible thumping creation scientific pontificators use to drive ticket sales to Noah's Arkland.

The gaffe machine known as Joe Biden tells a black man "if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black".

Cornpop could not be reached for comment.

Apparently Joe thinks his bubble where everyone believes this sort of thing is representative of broader America. Just keep talking Joe. Do it for America.

Rory said...

Is anyone else getting this thing on YouTube where, instead of videos like videos you've watched in the past, ALL of the suggested videos are about coping with the virus (#WithMe). It's like they think I'm a two-year old who has to be told what to feel.

Lucky indeed!

Drago said...

Did you know that Joe Biden believes that everyone in prison is incapable of reading?

Joe let us in on that "deep thought" just this morning....along with all of his other astonishing gaffes....from just one short interview this morning.

Impossible to see how he makes it even to the convention, much less come out the other side as the nominee.

Last time I checked Trump's approval with African Americans was close to 20%.

Sorry for being an idiot - I stop it now - doesnt mean I wont post but just things that matter - sorry, *I mean it

Ann Althouse said...

It's not a huge deal, Lewis, I just don't want to see blocks of blank space in the comments. People do it to express pausing for effect or whatever, but I don't want my space used that way. You can write "Pause..." as a separate paragraph and have one extra space between any paragraphs, so that's what you need to do. Otherwise, one person is claiming everybody's eyes for their expression of a pause, and it's a messy format, an eyesore.

                               XII

The hooves are running backwards
Over a broken head and “that’s history.” .-
We have grown smaller and, thus, our guilt grows great: .
Magnificent, this pygmy size,
This laughing below our sleeves,
This to large coat turned up at the cuffs. .

So, there we were, laughing on the ramparts,
Broken, of course, a castle whose name,
Even, is unrecallable (could we pronounce it?)
Spouting a name that we’d also forgotten:
Is that possible? Come (but, please, don’t)
Meet my contemporaries: the list of casualties
Is endless, the reason (we are to small) unknown.
That’s us, liars, and not the guts to say
The size of this life no longer suits.
Faded the cotton, the colour, the moment.
Don’t stop to see, my dead ones. I’m small, too.

Dang, I was about to applaud you for being a proper single-space-after-a-period person.

I see - I like 'dashes' is that ok?

ok is not OK

Lewis said...

You've probably realised I'm quite self-invovled - I'm sort of half-in, half-out of that generation of narcissism - also, I'm pissed - that's my mum, 60 -70s - guilt, that's a joke, men are made for it, adipoise adaption, the liver and kidneys seem to adapt - until they dont - who gives a fuck, there is no future.

Watched most of the interview. Bailed before completion. Anyway, Biden using notes and speaking from practiced memorization of talking points.

Contrast with Trump back and forth with press where he can go for thirty minutes or more,anytime, anywhere.

Lancet has gotten quite political the past 15 years or so. Sort of like the New England Journal but worse.

Biden says he knows a lot of wees smokers.

Sound like he been hittin' that old time Loco Weed, not the new strains that make you smarter.

Says nobody should go to jail for marijauna, should go to rehab 'cause it cost less?
Guess he was talking about jail for personal possession or minor dealing as opposed to big timers but he did not make the distinction.

Sweden's response to the corona pandemic has been lauded by the World Health Organization as a model for the world. Lomborg explains on FOX News' Tucker Carlson Tonight and Fox Business' Making Money that Sweden has done the scientifically correct thing by flattening the curve, and they managed to do so smartly by putting moderate social distancing measures in place but not locking down entirely. In contrast, countries that have imposed strict lockdowns are just pushing the problem in front of them, as these lockdowns are not sustainable in the long run.

rehajm said...

Bjorn Lomborg has published a new academic paper on climate change: "Welfare in the 21st century: Increasing development, reducing inequality, the impact of climate change, and the cost of climate policies" for the peer-reviewed journal Technological Forecasting and Social Change (and free download here).
It shows that common portrayals of devastation from climate change are unfounded. Scenarios set out under the UN Climate Panel (IPCC) show per person human welfare will likely increase to 450% of today's welfare over the 21st century. Climate damages will reduce this welfare increase to 434%.

Here's 46 minutes of Biden gaffes. How long can you watch?

stevew said...

Where is everyone? In the photo, I mean. Not a particularly memorable sunrise, but you don't know until you do, right?

Fox last night touted a poll the results of which were that the people polled favored Biden over Trump as to the response to the Coronavirus. OMFW, what in the world were these people asked to generate that result?

We're all fucked.

Lewis said...

I was thinking "What damage can you do?" A stupid question.

Drago said...

Jersey Fled: "Last time I checked Trump's approval with African Americans was close to 20%.

I never knew all of those people were not Black."

It takes a dementia-addled white liberal to explain these things to blacks.

Obviously.

Up next for our lefties: if blacks don't accept Rapey Gropey Joe "Dementia" Biden pronouncements on "authentic" "blackness", then those blacks are racist.

I Have Misplaced My Pants said...

Birkel, I seem to remember myself and many others talking very early on about suicide, child abuse and domestic violence and were told by many smug twerps, including Meade who as I recall earned his hero cape by organizing bread delivery from his favorite hip bakery, that we were talking nonsense and they were the good guys. (I hate to be right about this, by the way.)

Sadly, Lewis, no, she really means it. It's been a long time thing with her. Just another phobia or fetish or neurosis of hers. Don't take it personally. Don't, if I may, flatter yourself as some kind of Althouse dissident. I, at least, haven't seen anything you've written that she would care about.

Except spamming the blog with your poetry, which, apparently, she doesn't mind. Although her taste is in her ass, so her liking your stuff is maybe not a compliment. Althouse has another known tic: she likes what is bad.

How does an ghostly aura without a physical form "stand" anywhere? And why is this aura separate from all other light?

Yoko must have had a really weird drug brew going on the day of this writing.

Andy said...

I was just sitting down to watch the new Docu Series "The Universe Ancient Mysteries" episode one OMENS. I am thinking cool a show on how astronomical phenomena have impacted historical events. Oooh the peloponnesian war and the narrator starts to talk about an up coming battle between the Spartans and the "greeks". Ok I think I misheard that, and then he repeats himself Sparta vs the "greeks". EPIC FAIL
Go catch it now before somebody at Netflix discovers the error.

Lewis said...

Nichevo - thanks for the advise - I'm surprised she's tolerated me because I'm always pushing the limit - her blog feels a bit like Morecambe, UK, at the moment - a frontier town whose rules you can't really work out until you break them - luckily or unlucky, being Britain, we don't have any guns!

Lewis said...

Anne, I didn't quite understand your 'ruling' - in fact I dived under the pillow and didn't read you - it took me 12 hours to have the guts - but I get it - no more double spacings between paragraphs!

Nichevo said...

Happy to help out, Lewis. You should be able to get away with doubles as appropriate and maybe the odd triple, but 5-10x is right out. Also it's Ann, not Anne, she's quite tender about that.
