Big news at 4 p.m.!

At about 2 p.m. Pacific Standard time, or 4 p.m. Chicago time, I’ll be putting up a pretty amazing post: I haven’t done anything amazing, but others have, and you’ll want to read about it. You will find it hilarious, infuriating, a mortal wound on some of those we oppose, or even an unethical act. Or all of the above.

Just watch this space in a few hours. You won’t be disappointed.

    Guess: Toddler Trump & science/environment related?

    Something that puts another nail in that oaf’s coffin? It would be sweet if it besmirches [with truth] most of his team, Pence & the puppet masters [Koch Bros. etc] who financed the Trump campaign too!

    **fingers crossed, but I’m wishing for too much**

      I very much doubt that Jerry’s post will have anything to do with the “oaf” and his oaferies. However, your post allows me to draw attention to an article in yesterday’s London Times. It revealed that speeches at next week’s Nato Summit will be limited to 4 minutes in order to keep the Trump engaged. Nato officials are also considering adopting tactics from the White House to keep him interested in proceedings. Apparently, staff are required to restrict memos to one page and ensure that briefings last no longer than 15 minutes. National Security Council officials have also taken to including Trump’s name in “as many paragraphs as we can because he keeps reading if he’s mentioned”, a source said —.
      If this isn’t “fake news”, and I doubt that it is, this is astounding. America, what have you done?

        The Republicans are used to this. Reagan couldn’t understand graphs and charts, so, to indicate the relative size of armies, for example, they had a USA Today style graphic made of a small soldier wielding a rifle next to a much larger one (which was the USA, of course).

        And Mommie (Nancy) consulted an astrologer and then told Ronnie what to do.

        I am not sure what Ronnie’s attention span was, though.

    I don’t want to give anything away, but I think I know what it is:

    “Dutchess County Public Transit will implement six new bus routes to accommodate City of Poughkeepsie residents.”

    Six! And it is pretty amazing. The biggest thing here since Anthony Weiner passed through on the commuter train in handcuffs.

      This I can believe, though it would give me immense pleasure if PCC(E) had video of Trump not only saying he thinks religion is BS, but that Christians, in particular, are weak, easily manipulated, and consequently so unhinged that they are the true source of his power.

        Love that one. I was thinking it must have something to do with west coast. Reference the 2 pm pacific time? Maybe something at a west coast school? Bob Beckel was terminated at Fox for something he said to an African American but that can’t be it. I have no clue

        • Posted May 19, 2017 at 1:56 pm | Permalink

          I was also thinking West Coast. Maybe pertaining to Peter Boghossian, or Sam Harris. They live on the West Coast.

    Popular subject in these parts is Commencement time at major colleges. Student activists are planning a walk out or something like that when Pence comes to notre dame next week. So maybe PCC has been brought in as a sub. That would be a surprise…

    A new kitty sounds most plausible to me.

      No, it’s not a new kitty (I wish!).

      Why would you think that Jerry getting a new cat is “hilarious, infuriating, a mortal wound on some of those we oppose, or even an unethical act. Or all of the above.”

      And our continued incursions into Africa, etc. All war, all the time.

    Jerry will announce that free will really does exist?

    • rickflick
      Posted May 19, 2017 at 4:07 pm | Permalink

      announce it…with determination.

  24. Posted May 19, 2017 at 2:08 pm | Permalink

    “I haven’t done anything amazing, but others have, and you’ll want to read about it.”

    Jerry didn’t do it, but others did. But since only Jerry is announcing it, it wouldn’t be a major science thing; that’d be news everywhere. So what kind of work could others do, that they would entrust Jerry to announce it to the world?

    “You will find it hilarious, infuriating,”

    I find this is most common when we see it coming and wish others had seen it too. If it’s just Jerry doing the announcing, then it’s probably most relevant to people who read his blog and blogs like it. Peter Boghossian is counting down too. This is going to be something that it takes a member of the skeptic community to truly appreciate.

    “a mortal wound on some of those we oppose,”

    But not all we oppose. So not all creationists for example, but some of them. But if it’s both hilarious and infuriating, that means it’s one of the bigger examples of our enemies.

    “or even an unethical act. Or all of the above.”

    Someone else, did something potentially unethical, to representatives of our opposition and it’s “mortal.”

    Just watch this space in a few hours. You won’t be disappointed.

    So here’s my guess:
    AiG, Ark Encounter, Ken Ham, Creation Museum, or some combination of those, have committed some kind of egregious hypocrisy and the proof of it was acquired through clandestine acquisition of otherwise confidential material.

    I don’t care if I’m wrong. It was just fun to guess. I’m looking forward to the real thing.

    Whatever it is PCC, it can hardly be bigger than the daily news. Latest report from NYTs is that Trump told the Russians he had just fired the nut job Comey. Eased great pressure from Russian probe.
