I do so enjoy these posts of yours lampooning the stupidity that surrounds us. Thank you.


I'll second that Peter G! May I offer a quote (I have to paraphrase) from -- I think Dave Barry -- "Humor is a measure of the extent to which we realize we are trapped in a world without reason. Laughter is the way we express our anxiety about that realization."


Although I'm glad they did this (can you believe Graham's comment?), as a chemical engineer in the semiconductor industry, I gotta say the Helium reserve bill is about as important as you can get. It's really, REALLY important.

Peter G

Astonishing isn't bphuaric that such an important thing with such a minuscule supply should be the punchline of a joke? Or that it should be wasted filling balloons?

I'm with you guys. Helium is truly important. You can have all my gold. Give me helium!

Gold has some excellent properties, and I respect them, but helium shines like the golden sun. It is truly noble.
