Go Pistons!

Yep, against all odds, the Pistons forced a game 7 with the Spurs last night, after I honestly wasn't sure they could win at all on the road. It was a great game, too. I've also decided that there is no player who has fallen out of my good graces recently than Manu Ginobili...when he first came into the league and started really playing well, I thought he was the best thing since sliced bread. But now, when I watch him play either offense or defense, all I see is him flopping all over the place, trying to get the refs to blow the whistle. Don't get me wrong, the kid's got plenty of skills, but just play basketball and let the refs worry about all the other stuff.

On to more pressing issues...take, for example, the controversial topic of Intelligent Design. Here's an open letter from Bobby Henderson to the Kansas School Board:
Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him.


You may be interested to know that global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are a direct effect of the shrinking numbers of Pirates since the 1800s. For your interest, I have included a graph of the approximate number of pirates versus the average global temperature over the last 200 years. As you can see, there is a statistically significant inverse relationship between pirates and global temperature.
