I did well in an acting class.

Used to go on stage at comedy clubs for 'open mic' night and got laughs.

I spoofed the entire "we are the world" video once - the crowd loved it.

Havent done that lately.

Yes- if you declare yourself to be an "Indian" you DO need to specify which kind: "American" Indian, or "Asian" Indian- in the interest of g...

Nazism is essentially Corporatism....a union of corporation and state. We are there right now. If you are talking about rounding up "undesirables" and shipping them off to camps, the infrastructure to do that has been around for some time, but the fear of mass revolt and military defections is why ...

basically LKL is right, but some laws of physics are oddly analogous to the world of human conduct. For example " for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction", and "an object in motion remains in motion at the same direction and speed unless acted upon by another force" are just true of...

Although it could be argued that only a Social Species could reach a sufficiently high level of Civilization to contact us. Such a species would be likely to share many of the traits of our reciprocal altruism, although slightly different. but would they share their technological know-how with us? ...

just to note, that mammals evolved from primitive reptiles of the time. Probably looking superficially like modern reptiles, but still laying soft eggs in water like amphibians. I don't think theres anything like that surviving today. Our ancestors never layed hard shelled eggs like modern reptiles...

Folks dont realize that mammals and dinosaurs were contemporaries who both appeared at about the same time in the fossil record, but evolved from different groups of reptiles. The mammals became the supporting actors taking the role of small nocturnal insectivors while the dinosaurs took the starrin...

The old time problem in interstellar space travel is usually "solved" with this choice: multi-generational crews, or suspended animation ( ala the movie 2001). Families take off from earth and their descendants arive on alpha centauri ( or whereever) two hundred years later. Or the computer Hal runs...

According to the Bible, is God or Jesus the LORD of the White House? During the Bush, Jr. White House, there was regular Bible reading in the White House. Under the Obama White House, there is no regular Bible reading. Bush, Jr. said that torture (waterboarding) in Afghanistan and Iraq was a good t...

Are you using the word "Nazi" the way its used in poltical discourse in America today? Or, are you using the word to mean what it really means? If the latter: a totalitarian rightwing dictatorship based on the idealogy of racism, nationalism, antisemitism and world conquest- then no - thats not even...

I Chances are he'll be relieved to hear that there's a reason for his not fitting in. I agree, especially with this last point. Its not like being diagnosed with say, diabetes, which is the equivalent to being handed a prison sentence. Your child is already in a prison of not fitting it with kids a...

There used to be science fact/fiction magazine called "Omni". It offered a variation on the same riddle without printing the answer. I couldnt figure it out when I read it. But the answer came to me in a flash while eating an apple days latter. But I came up with a different answer from Ricky Gervas...

The letter shows that he was an able politician. He starts off sounding like a poor man's Churchill ( this is our finest hour sorta stuff) and then drifts into sounding almost like Lincoln- talking about forgiveness. The latter part is not quite as elequent as lincoln (I assume its a translation fro...

And what does any of this have to do with government spending today?

In the words of Sarah Palin "WTF????"

Europe/Middle east had wheat,barley and other grain crops that could provide sustenance. The americas were very limited and corn was the only crop that could feed large populations. By sustainable I didn't mean that they would not be able to feed themselves all the time.. I meant in in the sense th...

Most of the plants domesticated by the human race were first domesticated by the native americans in the New World. Most of the animals domesticated by man were were first domesticated in the old world. The old world had the best beasts of burden- including the oxen, and the horse. Thats why the old...
