This infrared image taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope shows where the action is taking place in the ancient galaxy NGC 1291. Although the galaxy is around 12 billion years old, the outer ring (red in this view) is filled with new stars that are forming and heating up the surrounding dust that glows with infrared light.

I think so, Brain … but why is there such a large variation in the number of persons required to change light bulbs in various ethnic groups?
The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin has been amazingly slipshod in his court filing. This is from his opposition to my motion to dismiss his first amended complaint in the Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness.The sharp-eyed Gentle Reader will notice the TDPK appears to have suffered a moment of mathematical challenge when he numbered the paragraphs in his opposition. As for the callousness of my argument, I simply pointed out that Kimberlin didn’t bother to allege any of the actual elements of the tort of intentional infliction of emotional distress in his complaint.
He also failed to do so in the state Kimberlin v. Walker, et al. nuisance lawsuit. Here’s how our lawyer Patrick Ostronic explained the deficiency to Judge McGann during the 1 July hearing on motions for summary judgment in the state case.And here’s how Judge McGann ruled.That means that the judge found that, given the facts in evidence about which there was no dispute, we defendants were entitled to a summary judgment in our favor as a matter of law.
So was it callous of me to point out that essentially the same set of allegations in the RICO Madness as were found in the state case have the same problems? Perhaps, but no more so that TDPK’s filing a bogus and vexatious lawsuit.
In October, 2012, The Lonely Conservative received death threats from an anonymous thug. Hogewash! has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for those threats. In order to qualify for the award any information must have be provided to an appropriate law enforcement agency.
This evening, Hogewash! received the following comment—Running out of time? I think not. The applicable statute of limitations in New York (victim’s location) is 3 years with a 3 year extension for a total of 6 years if, as I believe to be the case, the perp is outside of New York. Charges can be brought as late as October, 2018.
If the perp is in Maryland and is charged under that state’s laws, there is a possible charges for which there is no statute of limitations.
We shall see who laughs last.
UPDATE—If the perp is charged by the feds, there would normally be a 5 year statute of limitations. However, if, as I believe to be the case, certain facts apply to the case, the federal statute of limitations was reset by the send of the comment above, and it will restart whenever Karen B. or I receive any other emails or comments from the perp.
I think so, Brain … but if we store the Germanium next to the Francium in the lab, won’t Ge try to occupy Fr?
Someone had done a study of musical tastes versus SAT scores. Here’s a bit clipped out of the published chart.If it were to include my tastes, Bach, Mozart, and Weird Al would be shown in an area off the right edge of the chart.
UPDATE—I’m also a fan of U2, Dylan, and The Eagles.
