Don’t worry, we have the lightbulb on our side.

Measuring it like a cat’s tail

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

You measure a cat’s tail from the asshole – is how my grandpa used to describe how guys measured their dicks.

Turns out he wasn’t so far off from some sorta scientific truth.

That distance, measured from the anus to the underside of the scrotum, is linked to male fertility, including semen volume and sperm count, the study found. The shorter the AGD, the more likely a man was to have a low sperm count.

I’d just like to state, for the record, that my AGD is like… HUGE. I’m honestly shocked I don’t impregnate women just by walking near them. Or maybe I would, if it weren’t for the prevalence of birth control in today’s society.

And everyone else likes Lady Gaga, so I can’t imagine this video not having universal appeal.

Steamrolled by Sagan and Kepler

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Mannheim Steamroller to be exact.

By way of Johannes Kepler’s Somnium, held by some as the first work of science fiction. Above is the opening track for a concept album by Mannheim Steamroller, based on that book. I couldn’t seem to find the book on project Gutenberg (and it was written in Latin, so maybe I just can’t find a translation). The first track is in plainchant but subsequent tracks get into hopeful early 80s synthesis and electronic pianism.

[Next week, I'm going to Mannheim Rickroll you. But not today.]
