          It must be an aquired taste. Some of the games from ’10 were an audible nightmare…I seldom use the mute button during matches, but it almost became a reflex during that world cup. :-)

            They gave out vuvuzelas at a Marlins game just after the ’10 Cup. It was a disaster. I thought Dan Uggla was gonna walk off the field. I saw a little girl grab one out of her brother’s hands and hit him over the head with it.

          Srsly ; have you never considered how the bagpipes were counted as a weapon?

            Have you seen what Scotsmen eat? I figured if they could eat that stuff, they probably liked the bagpipes.

              Haggis as a weapon of (gastronomic) warfare? Now there’s an idea for dealing with cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

        PDFs of Martin Brasier’s last (or last-but-one ) book were online before my ink-on-paper copy reached me from Amazon. Scanned and OCR’d too – quite a good job, technically.

    Is it an evolutionary bio book?
    A new atheist book?
    (Did I miss something about it in recent blog posts?)

    • Posted June 27, 2014 at 1:20 pm | Permalink

      PCC mentions the writing of a book frequently but I think it’s been a long while since he mentioned just what it is about. Whether it’s “about” biology or atheism is a matter of interpretation, with “yes and no” being as valid a guess as any.

    And this post’s TITLE of yours, Professor, ’politely’ mimics re ‘the job’ which ‘d been at hand … … thus of the christians’ biblette, not ? ! john 19:28 – 30 … …

    28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

    29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

    30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, … … IT IS FINISHED: … … and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

    Vinegar ? Vino, instead ? Quite so, of course ! for such a final thirst upon its completion !

    Please, though, noooo need for allya’all to be ‘giving up’ any other ghosts nor … … ‘spirit’s ! ‘Tis time to boogie on down to the ball field, instead !
