Michigan State Spartan Football: Somehow They Win

Michigan State Spartan Football: Somehow They Win

Spartan Football: Definitely the most interesting team in the country right now. Michigan State has won its four biggest games this year with a total of 44 seconds of clock time remaining. Iowa last Saturday: 27 seconds. Ohio State and UM: 0 seconds each. Baylor, Cotton Bowl: 17 seconds. (I said “this year,” remember.) They started this season with the motto, “Reach Higher.” I think if I were an opposing coach I’d be thinking something else about MSU, and it would…

I Was Not Named Thomas Gilson For Nothing! ;-)

I Was Not Named Thomas Gilson For Nothing! ;-)

I am not Catholic. I cannot assent to the view of the Reformation presented in the blog post I’m about to direct you to. I am not Catholic. I see the Pope as a spiritual leader of a Church to which I do not belong and with which I have significant differences, but whose interests and fate are inextricably wrapped up in the fate of the entire world, in many ways even gloriously so. It is a Church within which…

What I Do Not Realize Is In Fact…

What I Do Not Realize Is In Fact…

Just for fun… I get spam comments here. Most of them appear to be machine translations from some other language into English. One of them today began with this: What i [sic] do not realize is in fact how you’re now not really much more smartly-appreciated than you may be now. My first response to that was, Huh? Does this even mean anything? My second response was my eager question, Could it be a compliment? Lots of spam comments butter…

I Just Wrote a Mathematics Journal Article!

I Just Wrote a Mathematics Journal Article!

I just wrote a math journal article, and it only took me thirty seconds. Here it is: Scalars and Monge’s Conjecture. Pretty good, considering I can’t read any of it. I did it with the just-for-fun random mathematics journalizer, MathGen. You can write one too! Okay, it’s idle fun that means nothing—except that the journal Advances in Pure Mathematics reportedly got Sokal-hoaxed with MathGen. The journal is reported to have accepted a random MathGen paper for publication, with just a few recommendations…

“Reds Heads Run On Sweepstakes” ??

“Reds Heads Run On Sweepstakes” ??

Fun with grammar: Can you decipher this? Believe it or not, it makes sense—once you know what it’s about. The Reds’ baseball season is over, but I’ve been thinking about posting this for months, every time I’ve gone in to the local Bob Evans this year, and I’m finally getting around to it. Here’s more of the display, enough to help you decipher it. It’s not the best wording I’ve ever seen, but at least it caught my attention!

Saturday Spam Fun

It’s been a while since I’ve had any great spam comments to share here. Today I offer the most obviously bogus one I’ve ever seen: I do trust all of the ideas you’ve offered for your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for starters. May just you please lengthen them a little from next time? Thank you for the post. That’s an exact quote. How many of you think my posts are…

Saturday Spam Fun

Saturday Spam Fun

I’ve decided to make my “Fun With Spam Comments” a Saturday feature. I don’t get good ones every week, but when I do, I’ll compile them for the weekend. I promise you these are exact quotes. Punctuation criticism from a credible source: Although My partner and i honestly such as this submit, I believe there were the punctuation miscalculation near in the end with the Finally section. I’m trying to decide whether this is a compliment: My brother suggested I…

What’s That About a Rucksack?

What’s That About a Rucksack?

Comment spam fun time again. This was fairly run-of-the-mill computer-translated gobbledygook, but something about the twist it took at the end made me laugh: Remorseful for your massive analysis, still I have to be actually nurturing the revolutionary Zune not to mention desire it, as well as the good critical reviews several other folks include prepared, will assist you to decide any time a a top quality rucksack on your behalf. This one came attached to a link for a…
