Science meets anthropomorphism

How to make a rat laugh.

Anyway, this time tomorrow I’ll be winging my way to “still recovering from Noel” La Republica Dominicana.  Just to give you an idea of how cool the Canadian anthem is, here’s a portion of a really really bad translation of the national anthem of the DR.

Compatriots, let us proudly
Show our face, from today prouder than ever;
Quisqueya may be destroyed
But a slave again, never!
Please note Quisqueya is what the native peoples called Hispaniola. That’s one of the closing verses.  The version that is on Wikipedia is so bad I suspect Haitians put it on Wikipedia just to poke the Quisqueyanos in the eye.
I’m packed.  Do I want to take my mandolin, that’s the question that’s bugging me.
I heart Hugh Laurie.  Omar Epps isn’t exactly Mr. Uggly either.

  1. Well, I’m ready to call bullshit on that one. Nowhere in the article does it discuss declining fertility as a factor. (Thinking here the 35-to45 yr old former co-workers who put the baby on hold far too long, and are now going the reproductive assistance route. At least with their incomes, they can afford the payments.)
