Good times at polarbear's place last night. Man, his new house kicks ass, and he's doing some cool stuff with it, making it quite the place. Drinks and some ass-kickin' steaks, always fun.

I like digging up things and doing further research on various things that strike my interest. Today's subject for research and reading: Scientology.

Cripes. I already knew it was odd, but now it's gone to downright bizarre. It's still not surprising, though; I have no problem understanding why so many Hollyweird people go for it. When your life is already a circus and you have too much money for your own good, why not go all the way, ensure you'll be in the spotlight more, and join the Cult of Greed, huh?

So, even the Supreme Court can't seem to be clear on this whole "10 Commandments In Government Buildings" thing...and no wonder really; the government can't seem to follow them, but they can't admit that. Maybe ol' Yahweh needs to come out of retirement and revise them slightly...



...or, better yet, let's get something that works for everybody:



Easy enough, wouldn't you say? Who's with me, can I get an "Amen, Suckas"?

Oh, man, forgot to mention; when Di woke up this morning, she told me that I was singing some Tom Waits song...in my sleep. Dig that. Funny part is that I woke up with "Everything Goes To Hell Anyway" stuck in my head, so I suspect that may have been the song...except that I don't (consciously) know the lyrics to it.

Why TV-to-Big-Screen Movies Don't Work

Thank the Maker, someone out there gets it. I don't agree with a few of the movies the author claims are terrible, but I understand why she says so (personally, I liked Wild Wild West, but, let's face it, it was so far off of the original TV series that it should have had a different name).

Now, hold this thought...and it's only another short step to comic-to-movie problems and book-to-movie problems...

"Good Luck, Mr. Gorsky"

Before you read this, you should know that it's not actually true...but it's still amusing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TAMPA, FL -- When Apollo Mission Astronaut Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he not only gave his famous "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," statement but followed it up with several remarks to the other astronauts and Mission Control.


Just before he re-entered the lander, however, he made the enigmatic remark, "Good luck Mr. Gorsky." Many people at NASA thought it was a remark concerning some rival Soviet Cosmonaut.


However, upon checking, there was no Gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong as to what the "Good luck Mr. Gorsky" statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.


This past Monday, June 27, 2005 at the University of Tampa in Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a student brought up the 36-year-old question to Armstrong. This time he finally responded.


Armstrong explained, "When I was a kid, I was playing baseball [with a friend] in the backyard. He hit a fly ball that landed in the yard in front of my neighbor's bedroom windows. My neighbors were Mr. & Mrs. Gorsky. As I leaned down to pick up the ball, I heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at her husband, "You want oral sex?! You'll get oral sex when the kid next door walks on the moon!"


At this remark, the audience - comprised primarily of college students - began laughing hysterically.
