I’m no biology stud, but I saw this video, and it blew me away.  It’s a cgi video clip of what goes on inside of a cell. Makes me want to go back to college and learn biology to know what it all is…

Here is a higher resolution one from  what seems to be the original site:

Bad grammar is often my pet peeve.  During my working career, I have heard people use this word – irregardless.  It’s not a word people!   It’s simply ‘regardless’.

This is from http://www.answers.com:

ir·re·gard·less (ĭrĭ-gärdlĭs)
adv. Nonstandard.

Regardless.

USAGE NOTE   Irregardless is a word that many mistakenly believe to be correct usage in formal style, when in fact it is used chiefly in nonstandard speech or casual writing. Coined in the United States in the early 20th century, it has met with a blizzard of condemnation for being an improper yoking of irrespective and regardless and for the logical absurdity of combining the negative ir– prefix and –less suffix in a single term. Although one might reasonably argue that it is no different from words with redundant affixes like debone and unravel, it has been considered a blunder for decades and will probably continue to be so.

Just a random thought – the 80s seem to be clearly in. Dukes of Hazard as a movie? Transformers the movie in the near future? 80s songs playing at the mall?

But will the kids start pegging their pants again? You know, roll the pants bottom to the side, and fold up?

peg pants?

I’ll be bold and predict it right here. Yes, they will, give it 2 to 3 years. Guys might start wearing tighter jeans, and then the stoop down, push pants to the side, then roll up will come back. It might not last long, but hey, I don’t lose anything if my prediction is wrong.

(update 12/28/06):  Just checked flickr for “peg pants” and came up with quite a few pics! 🙂

I found this site particularly useful during the 2004 election campaign.  I thought the site would die after the election was over, but it still does cover some stories, trying to filter through various lies to find the real truths.  It seems very impartial, and I highly recommend it!
