Thanks, but you forgot to include Sarah on the list of message options. Like: President Sarah Palin winking while throwing the green flag at the 2013 Daytona 500 after announcing on a secret listServ that Kevin Harvick is predestined to win and that all F1 drivers must henceforth wear dresses.

Mysticism is a rational enterprise. Religion is not. The mystic has recognized something about the nature of consciousness prior to thought, and this recognition is susceptible to rational discussion. The mystic has reason for what he believes, and these reasons are empirical. --Sam Harris

I couldn't find a picture of Calvin, but here's Hobbes, and he looks just about as grumpy.

Happy bday!

Happy Birthday, Heddle!

Hey, Dembski and I were going to take you out for a drink but the bastard drank all the scotch!

Behe couldn't make it either because his schedule is irreducibly complex.

Meyer's out, too, because his credit card is no good.  Something about an invalid signature.

Luskin said he was busy with a science fair project involving a gerbil and a paper towel tube.  He calls it Tickle Me St. Elmo.

Maybe next year.

Happy Birthday Heddle

For future reference: The typeface used for "It's good to be" is Brush Script. The Photoshopped-in "a Sexy Right-Wingnut" uses a different typeface, which I think is Linotype Script, but I am not at all sure. Alas, the person who modified this image did not match the font very well...

When I look at the picture, I'm not noticing the font.

Belated happy Birthday, my your favorite NASCAR drivers always turn right! Er, I mean left.

FTK: I Didn't answer your questions because it beats the hell out of me.

PaV: I suppose for me to be pried away from what I do to focus long and hard on that particular problem would take, quite honestly, hundreds of thousands of dollars to begin to pique my interest.

I know I'd already said it on FB, but a second happy birthday never hurt anyone, right?

Hope it went well, Heddle.
