Waterlooooooo!!!

I do love saying that.

and the creobots have given me so many opportunities over the last few years.

ahh, the memories of Dembski's wager....

did he ever pay up on that one, or did he chalk it all up to

Street Theatre?

I predict the waterloo of the wait for it meme in less than 5 years!

...and you can quote me on that.

Hmm. . .I doubt it.

The "wait for it" meme has been going strong for what. . .100+ years now?  I don't think it'll die in the next five.

Waterloo? Didn't England win there? Wasn't Darwin English? Am I confused?

I'm embarrassed. How do you expect to fit in with the Church Burnin Ebola Boys if you aren't liquored up? That's how we roll.

no.

Darwin always wins.

I'm obviously going to need to get on a strict all-beer training regiment if I'm going to have any chance of becoming a real member of the elite Darwin Police Force! :D

It's easy to keep within the right levels, though. When Uncommonly Dense starts to make sense, that's how you know you drank too much.

If Denyse's latest "contribution" is any standard, I'll be found lying dead in a pool of my own vomit before that happens.

Yeah, there's only about three or four drinks between "Uncommonly Dense sounds reasonable" and "Total liver failure."

It was the British army with the aid of the Prussians, I believe.  

But it is hard to decide between Napoleon and Wellington as the role model for these people.  One was a dictator and emperor, the other socially conservative to the extreme.

Yeah, but when Dembski made that original offer I didn't take it.  I was of the same opinion as DaveTard; Jones was a tool of the conservatives's assault on reason, and the US Constitution.

I also figured that Dembski would demand some horrible expensive label as tribute, and pay-off with some cheap pisswater.  I think of these people as the lowest, most debased forms of life on Earth.

BTW, my dear wife brought me home a liter of The Macallan she picked up in London.  I maybe be a ruined (but happy) man.

It's only June and already there's a tie for the funniest, most ridiculous, stupidest, abso-freaking-lutely inane statement by a creationist:

Woodward:  Evolution blah, blah, blah over by 2025.

Behe:  Malaria was designed!

There's still time for a dark horse to emerge and lead the field! Come on, Luskin, put on your thinking cap and get in there.

No, Luskin, not the pointy hat the "thinking" cap!

25?  That could have really ruined me.  See?  She is actually very nice, and knows me very well.

ETA: Did I mention that she is also beautiful and a hard worker?

Remember that she's 50% water, so I guess the rest is scotch? Well. I just think it's so stunning that these guys can make predictions like this, considering that they (incessantly) assert that one cannot predict climate change because the weatherman is usually wrong about the weather three days out. But hey, let's be cool about this:

They say 2025, party over, oops, outtatime...

So tonight I say we party like it's 1999:

I was drinking when I wrote this, so sue me if it goes astray.

I'm glad I checked this place one last time before I went to bed.

Drunken Kristine channeling Prince was definitely worth it.

agreed.

that post had style, substance, and wit.

dead on point too.

I give it a 9.5

my only complaint is that there was a slight stretching sensation going from Denyse to Dembski, even with the very apt use of poetic ala Prince.

I woke up this morning with it in my head.

The post that keeps on giving.

9.0 - only because Kristine needs to finish at least a few verses.

The sky was all people flying up with the Rapture –where?
Up to God for jelly doughnuts – you know I didn’t even care!
They say 2025 evo over, oops, outtatime –
So tonight I’m gonna party like I never evolved no spine!

*PSH! DA-DAHH, DA-DU-DA!

If you likey poem you see,
You gets a shimmy-shimmy from me. :)

Speaking of poems, you have one vote in the poetry contest @ UDoJ, and Rich has none.  Neither of you have voted yet, and voting closes tomorrow night...

I thought JAD hated people who were anonymous on the internet.  (Although I guess it's not hard to tell who he is - could be an impersonator though)    :O
