This Battle Station Is Fully Operational:

Take 192 little laser beams and focus them on a single point and instantly you have the power of a Sun. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory unveiled its NIF (National Ignition Facility) laser this week. Could it be that our Rebel forces have under estimated the power of the dark side. Well sure we did! Our espionage budget is the less than the allowance of a 5th grader, $3.95 a week if your wondering. Unfortunately most of the that is spent on 44 oz Dr Pepper at the Quik Trip.

A US weapons lab on Friday pulled back the curtain on a super laser with the power to burn as hot as a star.

The National Ignition Facility's main purpose is to serve as a tool for gauging the reliability and safety of the US nuclear weapons arsenal but scientists say it could deliver breakthroughs in safe fusion power.

"We have invented the world's largest laser system," actor-turned-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said during a dedication ceremony attended by thousands including state and national officials.

"We can create the stars right here on earth. And I can see already my friends in Hollywood being very upset that their stuff that they show on the big screen is obsolete. We have the real stuff right here."

NIF is touted as the world's highest-energy laser system. It is located inside the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory about an hour's drive from San Francisco.

Equipment connected to a house-sized sphere can focus 192 laser beams on a small point, generating temperatures and pressures that exist at cores of stars or giant planets. ...

Get Over It:

"The Barrack" told graduates at Notre Dame tonight at graduation in regards to abortion:

"When we open up our hearts and our minds to those who may not think precisely like we do or believe precisely what we believe -- that's when we discover at least the possibility of common ground," Obama said

Let's get one thing strait common ground to a Liberal is doing what ever they want and keeping your mouth shut about it. In all due respect Mr Presidnete' stay off our Common Ground. Let's face facts you think it is perfectly legal to "KILL" a child simply because he/she has not drawn a breath. You would rather have your daughters "KILL" their unborn child that have it and raise it. You said so yourself here. The head's of Notre Dame just gave up all their moral ethics tonight by granting this man a honorary degree. It's time for them to step down and the Church to discipline them. Despite the fact I am not a member of the Catholic Faith I recognize the right of any religion to dictate it's own doctrine and beliefs. What has happened at Notre Dame tonight would be tantamount to feeding a pet slug salt for dinner. Conservatives it is time to stand up and stand firm on our ground. The ground that was solid enough to build a country based on morality, honor, freedom and truth. Yes we have made errors, yet those errors have been corrected. In the future we will probably make more mistake we are human after's time to correct mistake that are being made now speak out with your vote in 2010.

I'm Keeping My Eye On That One:  

Thursday, May 14, 2009

If your the father of a daughter or daughters you will understand what I am about to share. If not you will probably roll your eyes and tell me I'm over reacting. Being a Father has it's rights of passage just as being a boy did, just as those wild college years, or any other time in anyone's life. From the birth of your first daughter until she is able to send her first email or send a text message is a pretty peaceful time filled with things such as Disney Princesses and art supplies in the least expected places.
After the leap from little girl to young women your in trouble as a father. Suddenly you notice that your little girl now thinks a certain boy may be funny instead of gross or yucky. Next you may experience what I like to call "time to go look at tools while the girls go shopping at Targe't" phase. After that you can probably expect one day for the phone to ring or answer the door bell and hear the un-mistaken cracking voice of a young man "Hello Mr.Smeag is your daughter home?". At this moment in time (which has not happened yet but I am preparing for mentally) you will probably think of a few diversionary answers such as:
Always safe~~~"...Why no Johnny Smeagette is at her Grandma Smeags house..."
Daring~~~" I'm sorry Bobby she is out bungee jumping ...would you like to go I'll rig your harness...:)"
Science Fiction~~~" Billy you just missed her she just got beamed up to the Enterprise she's out of reach."
Menacing~~~" Danny she's at the store with her mother and I was just cleaning my guns ...would you like to help?"
Diversionary~~~" I'm sorry Mikey she's on the phone with that rich kid Bobby"

Any of these and many other useful responses to "The First Boy" contact may hold off additional contact for maybe one or two grades depending on which one you use and whether it's in person or over the phone. If they persist you can always hire the kid at school who has repeated 6th grade so many times he's now old enough to vote to take care of things. Live Long And Prosper.
