International High IQ Society | Free IQ Tests

The Boulder Drive Bootymen are back for 1 more booty-licious year. Wait, did I spell licious wrong. Dang-it!

International High IQ Society | Free IQ Tests

Good tests that really give you a score instead of asking for $$$ when you're done.

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

shame on toyota

Shame on Toyota. The 2006 Lexus RX 400h: The Hybrid Emperor's New Clothes is clearly a step backwards. What a nice way to squander good will and make me think of them as another soul-less company instead of as the leaders of an automotive revolution.

and by the by, if you're getting
org.hibernate.PropertyAccessException: IllegalArgumentException
and can't figure out why since you're not setting null's to primitive types like the hibernate faq suggests you probably are, it's all about getting your log4j going and disabling CGLIB, ie -Dhibernate.cglib.use_reflection_optimizer=false

This will tell you that you're trying to set your java.util.Date to java.sql.Date and make your afternoon. Ahah!!

Bush Remarks Roil Debate on Teaching of Evolution

Bush Remarks Roil Debate on Teaching of Evolution at the NYTimes.

Recalling his days as Texas governor, Mr. Bush said in the interview, according to a transcript, "I felt like both sides ought to be properly taught." Asked again by a reporter whether he believed that both sides in the debate between evolution and intelligent design should be taught in the schools, Mr. Bush replied that he did, "so people can understand what the debate is about."

Mr. Bush was pressed as to whether he accepted the view that intelligent design was an alternative to evolution, but he did not directly answer. "I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought," he said, adding that "you're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas, and the answer is yes."

sometimes you just want to go out and hurt someone. what a failure of a man.
