I think so, Brain … they say money can’t buy happiness, but I’d like to try the experiment myself.
I think so, Brain … but it’s always dullest before the yawn.
Truth is strong enough to overcome all human sophistries.

One of the recurring lies that Breitbart Unmasked and other associates of Brett Kimberlin keep telling is the one about Mrs. Kimberlin being 18 years old when she married The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin. There is documentary evidence—sourced from both Brett and Tetyana Kimberlin—that she was 15 years old when he brought her to Maryland and that she was 16 when they married.
There’s no dispute that they were married in November, 1996. The marriage licenses shows her date of birth as 1978. However, that date is contradicted by Mrs. Kimberlin’s sworn statements in several court filings. On 7 July, 2013, before either Aaron Walker or I became aware of the Kimberlins’ marital difficulties, Mrs. Kimberlin filed the following petition for a protective order:
Similarly, Brett Kimberlin listed her date of birth as 11/80 in contemporaneous filings.So both Brett Kimberlin and his wife gave her date of birth as being in 1980 in documents filed before her age became an issue. Brett Kimberlin did not change his story until after Mrs. Kimberlin filed the Application for Statement of Charges stating that she was under age when she was brought of Maryland.
1996 – 1980 ≠ 18.
This is NGC 6153. The faint blue haze is what remains of a star like the sun after it had depleted most of its fuel. When that happened, the outer layers of the star were ejected and then ionized by the ultraviolet light from hot core of the star, forming the nebula.
NGC 6153 is a planetary nebula which contains large amounts of neon, argon, oxygen, carbon and chlorine—up to three times more than can be found in our solar system. It contains five times more nitrogen than our sun! It could be that the star developed higher levels of these elements as it grew and evolved, but it is more likely that the star originally formed from a cloud of material that already contained an abundance of those elements.

The Dreadful Pro-Se Schmalfeldt files his Schmalfeldt v. Johnson, et al. LOLsuit in U. S. District Court. On my motion to dismiss it is thrown out for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, that is, the Cabin Boy™ filed suit in the wrong court. Strike One!
TDPS files his Schmalfeldt v. Hoge, et al. LOLsuit2 in the Circuit Court for Howard County. On my motion to dismiss it is thrown out for improper venue, that is, the Cabin Boy™ filed suit in the wrong court. Again. Strike Two!
And now the pitcher holds the ball, and now he lets it go,
And now the air is shattered …
