The little PR-weasel at NASA (mentioned here) has resigned following a blogger's revelation that the weasel lied about having a degree on his resume. The weasel, eager to accept responsibility for his actions, has frothed about the vast left-wing conspiracy that is promulgating a culture war within NASA.

Film News: Saw March of the Penguins the other night. Rebecca would only watch it on the understanding that every time something sad happened, she was going to punch me in the shoulder. Ow.
Bruce Campbell will play himself in a movie in which fearful townsfolk kidnap him and demand that 'Ash' save the town from demons.
Milla appears to have made another movie with a high pretty:stupid ratio.

snort. The firstest clue that something was rotten in Denmark was that the snotnosed brat was only 24. 24 Fuck all this cronyism. It's just blatant now. They aren't even trying to pretend to be objective, impartial, nor properly vetting people.

I took March of the Penguins off my netflix queue. How many times were you punched?

Probably only 6-10 punches, though some were multiple punches for extremely sad occurences.

Just be glad she didn't decide to punch you every time animal behavior was anthropomorphized in an overly cloying way. You probably wouldn't have an arm anymore.

To be fair, I liked the movie a lot. But by the end of the movie, I was inwardly cringing every time they referred to this as "a story ... of love."

As for the punches, that's what you get from the cold, uncaring universe. :) Now that you've learned your lesson, watch the documentary in the special features. It's much better. You'll learn fun things like how one group of penguins only had to march a whopping 3 miles to get to the mating site.

As for the fuckwit, I posted something on the guy's blog. I told all the anonymous posters criticizing the blogger to each sew on a pair of balls and sign their names. I'd love to watch that needle-threading exercise! (Hee!)

Deutsch Departure

Now, bear in mind that I'm not allowed to comment to the public on anything regarding the internal goings-on at NASA, but let me say that the mood in the halls changed considerably after this announcement.

You may have seen his follow-up interviews, in which he stated emphatically that none of the allegations are true and that global warming is a left-wing conspiracy and he was targeted as a scapegoat because he was a "low-hanging fruit." (His words, not mine.)

The good news is, following the Dilbert principal, since he's now a high-profile screwup he'll be making much more than any of us at his next job, which he should have by the end of the week.
