Weather: 37 for 36 degrees

I actually wanted to guess it was 36 degrees while walking Miss T, but didn't feel sure so I hedged it at 37. At least I had been awake for more than a minute or two!

Musings: Cluelessness causes (fear of) terrorism

Truly "we have nothing to fear but fear itself." If anyone sounding the terrorist alert in Boston had a shred of a cultural awareness or the chance to speak to anyone under 30 who has seen Aqua Teen Hunger Force ("number one in the hood, yo"), they wouldn't have said, "Omigod, it's a bomb!" but "Hey, Mooninites..."

The Adult Swim promotion of the five-year-old TV show ran without incident for as long as 20 days in 10 major cities until fearmongers sounded a terrorism false alarm in Boston. Of the "hoax devices" that resembled "bombs," Assistant Attorney General John Grossman said, "It's clear the intent was to get attention by causing fear and unrest that there was a bomb in that location." Um, guys -- it's just the obnoxious and egotistical Err giving Earthlings the finger... (See this YouTube clip.)

Fear has one beneficial purpose among clueless publicans: If a man jumps or starts upon seeing a black cat's shadow, it shows he's really a coward who, despite his bluster and bravado, is not only afraid of a kitty's shadow, but he didn't recognize it as such.

Ads: Heineken

YouTube - Heineken commercial features Cobrastyle by the Teddybears.

Music: Teddybears - Cobrastyle

Teddybears - biography, audio links and more: "We don't consider Teddybears a rock band or an electronic outfit. In general we don't care much for dividing music into different genres, and we really don't feel that we belong to any particular scene. There's fantastic as well as crappy music being made in every genre today. But we like to mix it up and we don't want to feel that we have to limit ourselves to any specific style."

(What an eclectic group -- Teddybears make Smashmouth look like Lawrence Welk! Be sure to click the RealPlayer link to play Cobrastyle. Or for the best fidelity, visit their Web site and stream the song from there.)

Men are weird. “A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.” The woman, meanwhile, has probably already finished doing it...
