Geo, I think your commentary on the Colbert Report Report diluted out the real message, which is that one\\\'s underlying political ideology determines how one interprets Colbert, and by extension any message. That a liberal ideology leads to an interpretation consistent with Colbert\\\'s intent is an accident of the message observed in the study. It does not support an idea that conservatives are blinded by their ideology more than liberals. Instead, the message is that our perceptions are all influenced by our preconceived notions.

First: On Geo\\\'s Mom Reads Jay Z Lyrics I\\\'m not familiar with the Jay Z song. Was that your music that was playing behind your mom? It sounded very Thrak Attack King Crimson like.

Second:Was somebody smoking in the background? I kept hearing what sounded like a lighter flicking and some deep inhaling. Tell the truth, was is Miss Information?

Loved the show by the way.

Vibraphone.

Hey Geo... they\\\'re playing \\\"Skeptic\\\" on the This Week in Science podcast (May 5th episode)!!!!!!!!!!! I sent them a link to your periodic table podcast back when you put the whole thing into one cast... anyway, it is cool to hear some \\\"regular\\\" Geo on TWIS!

As idiotic as the Senegalese situation is, I\\\'m happier with them digging up dead gay people than burying live ones...

Oh, and GH₵ stands for \\\"GHanaian Cedi\\\". The ₵ isn\\\'t a cent sign (¢), but is typographically distinct, being a capital C rather than lower case.

Midnight show, definitely. Although, I\\\'m feeling a little sane and will see it tomorrow afternoon post-work.

I remember opening day for Star Trek: First Contact. Wifepick and I left work mid-day to see the first showing. Sadly, I looked around the theater before the lights went down and all illusions of who was in my peer group were dashed on the rocks forever. :)

Now, at peace with my inner and outer geek, I can look back and laugh at my youthful facade.

ReCaptcha: newsy Saskatoon Is that a track off the new album?

BTW I think Trebuchet is a phenomenal name for the album. This could be the first album packaged with/as a working medieval weapon. Think that would be a challenge for Ms I????

Of course it\\\'s geeky to go see Star Trek opening night. But you\\\'re a geek, and that is nothing to be ashamed of.
