Easter Peep or Chupacabra – You Be The Judge

There are three peeps in that little nest on top of our patio speaker, but only one was willing to pose for Bunkarina’s camera. The nest is about 4-inches wide, and it’s covered in some kind of finch poop.

The parents are slim grayish brown sparrow-sized, the female has a rust-red breast, and the cat hates them because cats hate everything except for the wet food. Jerk.

Fixing an Embarassing Dog Fro


Sorry, it’s just wrong. It can’t be fixed, even if you say it’s cool. I’d rather see marmaduke mullets than canine q-tips.

BTW, according to WorpDress stats, this is the 1,800th post on Tacky Raccoons since 3 August 2007, and I didn’t steal it from anybody! BoogahBoogah!

64.7% of Non-Registered Eligible Voters Support a 3rd Party


[via]
According to a recent survey conducted by StruttsPolls™ a large majority of 22 year-old white male non-registered eligible voters would support a 3rd party because they couldn’t remember the first two.

64.7% of the non-registered voters polled in Rudy’s backyard last weekend said that they’d register to vote if the Party Party was established. The remaining 35.3% wavered between the Toga Party and the Hot Chicks Naked In Jacuzzis With Beer Party.

Draw Mohammed Day – 20 May 2010

Don’t know what this is all about? Hint: 1st Amendment, foreign-imposed censorship and imposition of world-wide sharia law. Click here and follow the links. Related googlesearch here. We cannot and should not kowtow to radicals of ANY nation or religion PERIOD. –Bunk


UPDATE 3 October 2021: Swedish artist who survived two murder attempts after drawing a cartoon of the Muslim Prophet Mohammed has died in a horror car crash. Lars Vilks, 75, was killed Sunday when the police car he was traveling in veered onto the wrong side of the road and collided with a truck. [LINK]

Sorry, it’s just not the same.

Uncle Fester Goes Green

(via Strutts News Services, Washington D.C.)

H.R. 4997 (ih), currently under review, proposes a requirement that all cinematic movie theaters replace standard xenon arc lamps with energy saving fluorescent bulbs or tubes and to retrofit the projectors with “kinetoscope” discs, rotated via electrical motors powered by photovoltaic cells, to allow frame-by-frame illumination. Films that previously employed the standard 24 frames per second shall be reduced to 8 to 16 frames per second in order to shorten the length of the illumination power requirements.

Babe Magnet Guest House

Although it’s missing a community pool and spa with a game room, this looks pretty nice for my future retirement home. Except for inclement weather, you’ll likely find me sunning on the back porch, with a laptop and a cooler, waving to passersby, before the local constabulary asks me to move.

Climategate Summarized

Norwich, England (Strutts News Services) – Since all of the raw data regarding climate change  has been finally released to the public for scrutiny after many years of cooperation by the keepers of such proprietary knowledge and research, we at Tacky Raccoons believe it is our duty to present this data in a form that is easily understandable to all sentient beings.

(Click on any graph to enlarge it.)

This first graph illustrates the Vapors Constant. It reflects the ideal average temperature of the globe, without meandering from the mean average.

This graph shows the Vapors Constant, and adds the values purported by the Bieber-Naughton studies as well as the Moholy-Nagy data.

Here we retain the Vapors Constant while showing the results of Zager & Evans/Fooser-Bieber Conundrum. Note that they diverge.

Combining all four studies and retaining the Vapors Constant, results in the graph above.

Using the Strutts-Crumbler method, and overlaying the previous data sources, the results coagulate into a recobinizable pattern.  This pattern can be simplified further.

Once the data are resolved and mushed around a bit, the patterns become intuitively obvious to the casual observer.

It’s the elusive “Hockey Puck” of global warming.

We’re doomed.

Antarctica kicks U.S. butt. Not cool. But exposing a Hoax IS.

“I’d like to see a calculation to show how long it would take for its miles-thick icepack to melt at 33 degrees F. Sea level increases wouldn’t matter because if you weren’t living closer to the poles you’d be dealing with 150-200 degree temperatures on the surface. I hear it’s gonna happen in five years or so.”

Folks, this post was sitting around for a while, and I was about to delete it except for recent events regarding the AGW hoax debates.  If you haven’t been following, here are some links to bring you up to speed.

Soylent Green’s cbullitt posted the error data cluster from the AGW folks at East Anglia University’s world renowned Climate Research Unit.  (BTW, thanks for the hat tip cbull.)

The UK Telegraph chimes in on “Climategate.”

AJStrata has been debunking (gawd I hate that word) AGW for some time now.

Chris Horner of Watts Up With That has filed three NOIs:

“Today, on behalf of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, I filed three Notices of Intent to File Suit against NASA and its Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), for those bodies’ refusal – for nearly three years – to provide documents requested under the Freedom of Information Act.”

Iowahawk dissects the situation. Don’t miss this one.

Even CBS (!?) seems to have gotten the story right. Lookee here.

AND IT’S ALL JUST IN TIME FOR COPENHAGEN! YAY!
