Religion of 'Peace' My ASS!

On the 28th of March was left with no other choice but to remove the film "fitna" from our servers following serious threats to our staff and their families. Since that time we have worked constantly on upgrading all security measures thus offering better protection for our staff and families. With these measures in place we have decided to once more make this video live on our site. We will not be pressured into censoring material which is legal and within our rules. We apologise for the removal and the delay in getting it back, but when you run a website you don't consider that some people would be insecure enough to threaten our lives simply because they do not like the content of a video we neither produced nor endorsed but merely hosted.

I recently came across this quote from an avid Muslim: "Do U know, word "Islam" in Arabic means "Peace" So, Islam = peace" What outstanding logic. I think I'll put it to use, lets see my group will be called 'happy fun squad', our goals include oppression of women, stoning infidels, and stabbing movie producers through the chest with 5 page letters.(Theo van Gogh).

Religion of peace, my ass. These fools can claim their religion is a religion of peace once the death threats stop. I don't agree with a lot of the things in the movie, but I sure as hell respect the movie makers universal human right to voice his opinion on the subject.

more later I'm tired...

PZ Myers Strikes Again

The elusive PZ Myers has struck again. Taking advantage of his mad secret agent skillz, only rivaled by that of the original 007 Sean Connery. PZ Myers skillfully deciphered the creationists secret code in time to inform the listeners of the expelled conference call (march 28th) that questions such as: "How can you be so intelligent and question Darwinism?" addressed to Ben Stein, false statements about evolution, lies about the origins of the movie, Lord Privy Seals, and the IDiotic premise of the film that the Holocaust was a consequence of evolutionary theory, Will Not Go Uncriticized.

Here is a snippet from PZ's infiltration: (Courtesy of Skepchick)

PAUL: Gentlemen, let’s move off this controversy and back to the core message of the film. Um, I understand…

PZ: Let’s not. Let’s not move off of it. You do know PZ Myers and Richard Dawkins have posted substantial criticisms of your movie, don’t you?


BEN: Well I haven’t seen them, but why don’t you tell us what they are?

PZ: Yeah

PAUL: Who’s asking that question?

PZ: This is PZ Myers.

After PZ Myers said: "this is PZ", the Expelled members heads exploded and they 'shat' their pants, in the presence of his almighty Giant Squid Penis.

Richard Dawkins Rap

This is hilarious. Satire? Creationist propaganda? You decide. I don't really care, because I love it.

My Insect friend

Here are some pictures I took of the insect found eating Puccinia Psidii rust urediniospores.

I reared the larval stage (~1 mm long x .3 mm width) to obtain the adult form (~1mm x 1mm) and sent it off to the department of agriculture insect department for identification. It seems to be a new species of Cecidomyiidae.

My abstract submission for the 2008 Hawai'i Conservation Conference

Well, here is my abstract submission for the 2008 Hawai'i Conservation Conference July 29-31, 2008

Brush cherry (Eugenia paniculatum): a new host for ohia rust (Puccinia psidii). David Simmons, Chris Kadooka and Janice Uchida. Department of Plant and Environmental Protection Sciences.

Puccinia psidii was first found on potted ohia (Metrosideros polymorpha) on Oahu and has devastated rose apple (Syzygium jambos). Brush cherry (Eugenia paniculatum), a popular ornamental plant, was found infected with rust in Kamuela. This would be a new host record for P. psidii in Myrtaceae. Our objective was to confirm the identity of the rust. Typical urediniospores of P. psidii were found on brush cherry. In 2007, molecular analysis showed that only one strain of eight known strains was present in Hawaii. Molecular analysis showed that the brush cherry rust is similar to the other P. psidii samples collected in Hawaii. Each strain is believed to attack different hosts based on early studies. The Hawaii strain causes severe disease on rose apple, spores from brush cherry were used to inoculate rose apple, and abundant lesions formed. Morphological, molecular, and pathological results support the discovery of P. psidii on a new host, Eugenia paniculatum. Researchers have noticed a cecidomyiid larvae feeding on rust urediniospores. Heavy feeding can occur and interferes with efficient spore collection needed for research. These larvae were reared and adults were successfully obtained, and sent to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture for identification.

I will be giving a presentation on the above ^_^ at the Hawaii Convention center.

I'll add more info later...

Random Physics

W = Fd

this is the formula for work.

Now for an example problem: A 50 kg runner runs up a tower 443m tall, in 15 minutes. What is his/her average power output in watts?

Anws - the runners total work is their weight multiplied by the height climbed. (mg)

W = mgh = (50kg)(9.80 m/s^2)(443m) = 2.17 x 10^5 J

since the time is 15 min = 900s, the average power is

2.17 x 10^5 J / 900s = 241W or .323 hp

Now for some practical application.

Lets say that there was a hot girl(50kg) being chased by a fat rapist(100kg). Should the hot girl run up a building(443m) or keep running on a flat surface(443m)? All other things constant the girl and the man both run at ave. 241 watts constant.

the girl running up the building:
W = mgh = (50kg)(9.80 m/s^2)(443m) = 2.17 x 10^5 J

2.17^5J/241w = 900s

the man running up the building:
W = mgh = (100kg)(9.80 m/s^2)(443m) = 4.34 x 10^5 J

4.34^5J/241W = 1800s

now on a flat surface

both the girl and the man put out the same 241 watts. The girl has no advantage

Lesson: When running away from a fat rapist run up hill he has to work harder against gravity ~9.80 to get to you.

Expelled From Expelled

Well if you haven't heard the blogosphere is buzzing with the stupid antics of the makers of Ben Stein is Expelled: no intelligence allowed.

Apparently at a public screening of the movie, professor PZ Myers was expelled. The hypocrisy is enough to make the smallest of heads explode. The entire premise of the movie Expelled is a claim that freedom of speech is being hindered in the case of Intelligent Design advocates ('IDiots') and that they are being quite literally expelled from work positions because of their IDiotic beliefs. Extremely funny and stupid of course considering the premise is a lie, the Creationists never cease to amaze, they actually decided to expel PZ from the movie theater, ban him from the premises, then lie about it after. But to bad the story is a blaze on the internets (no one escapes the wrath of the internets mwahahahaha 'evil grin'). PZ whose grand sexiness appears in the movie, was paid 1,500 bucks to be interviewed under false pretenses (lied to), and thanked in the credits. hahahaha

To make matters worse, the Producers of the film didn't notice PZ's little friend standing next to him, none other then my hero Richard Dawkins. The worlds most famous atheist decided to take time off from his baby eating to watch the shitty film with PZ and friends.

Original story can be found on the Elvis Presley of Atheisms Blog:
along with more hilarious facts about the incident. If you don't already read PZ's blog go there and read it, it's hilarious. I am a huge Pharyngulite.

I love you PZ this photo is my contribution to this IDiocy.

My two dance compilation videos

I made these two videos for my YouTube channel. I was inspired by the other funny gif. videos on there and thought that I might get a bunch of views too. Some other guy that makes videos like these normally gets upwards of 500,000 views per video, with his most viewed video around 6 million.

Very Funny Dance Compilation Part 1 (Remix): (I personally like this one better)

Funny Dance Compilation part 1: (original Version)

Thanks goes out to all the people who make these gifs and funny vids on 4chan and ytmnd and to the other compilation makers on you tube for the inspiration.

And Richard Dawkins for introducing the world to Memes.

song is: global deejays - what a feeling

I even have one subscriber now. WOWEEEEE

First Post Yay!

Well, I'm new to this blogging thing. I guess I'll use this as a way to practice my writing, as I am a horrible writer. (I grew up in Hawaii, people here don't use proper English grrrrr)

I'm an Atheist. My horns are ~7 centimeters long, my tail is about half a meter. I eat babies for breakfast, along with being a nazi, communist, devil worshiper, and racist (insert sarcasm here). I like long walks on the beach, quiet sunsets, classical music, buying gifts, working hard, and small children (Actually, I hate all of those things).

Enough of this monkey business. I'm a scientific Atheist or scientific rationalist. This blog will be mostly about my various dealing with pseudoscience loonies in the real world, on the internets, and random funny stuff. ...
