laughing-HitchhikersGuideDouglas Adams, the author of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series of books into which so many of us have found humorous escape, would have turned 61 this past Monday. In remembrance of his birthday and in honor of the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything, here are 42 facts about the man who brought us – for better or worse – Vogon poetry and who taught us about the “immense psychological value” of one’s towel.

MP Bulletin Extra: 1 Arctic Highway Tunnel + 27 Tons Goat Cheese + 1 Open Flame = ??

Take one semi truck, pack it tight with 27 tons of delicious, caramel-flavored goat cheese, park it in the middle of a strategically placed highway tunnel well above the Arctic Circle, give it a bit of the crème brûlée treatment and Voilà!

And some still wonder why he was re-elected…

For some Obama’s re-election represented the coming of the rapture but for the rest of us it was a time to cheer as we realized, with a unified voice the majority of Americans chose the intelligent, human with a great sense of humor over the robot.

How can anyone still wonder why he was re-elected?

MP Bulletin Extra: “Daily Show” guide to my enemies

As a producer, I met people whose political views I detested. The hardest part was admitting they weren’t so bad

By

For two years I was a field producer for “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.” The field producer is the person who guides the creation of the pre-taped segments, the ones where the correspondent travels somewhere to interview and heartily agree with some person who holds, uh, fascinating ideas about the world. This meant I spent a lot of time with people whose causes or philosophies I found blecchy — the sort of folks who would fit nicely in the overlap of a Venn diagram whose circles included Bachmann supporters, fans of Rush Limbaugh, and people who wear tricorn hats and exercise their Second Amendment rights at Tea Party rallies.  You know – assholes.

Monterey Bay’s Amazing Visitor

 

In the early morning hours of this, the first day of April, a rare visitor to Monterey Bay invited himself into one of the open sea exhibits of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Affectionately, dubbed “Artie”, by the volunteer staff who arrived early this morning to opened the aquarium, was truly a sight to behold.

We haven’t been treated to such a magnificent sight as this in the entire 20 years I’ve been on staff here. said long time volunteer Harold Mackleroy.  

It is anticipated Artie will remain here throughout the day before he moves on to parts unknown. So everyone who can, is encouraged to join the Aquarium and the entire Monterey Bay community in welcoming this elegant visitor to the area and share with them  this once in a lifetime event.

Obama’s Gun Control Conspiracy [video]

While great for a laugh, this excerpt from the Colbert Report illustrates how the political rumor mill stretches and contorts real world actions into messages that create fears in the general public that don’t actually exist. From the Free Speech/Protest Banning HR 347 to Obama’s peacetime martial law implementing executive order to health care reform’s implanted tracking chip requirement, the rumor mill has been quite busy manufacturing an abundance of fear meant to convince voters the sitting president is a shadowy figure intent on implementing a diabolical plan to set asunder the country as we know it.
