I can understand Pinky, but who's the Brain?

Pinky and The Brain

Huh. The rest of the plan might go something like this:

Once you've got control of the "too large to fail" banks,

"bail out" the auto industry,

offer people $4500 to trade in their non-government-approved vehicles in exchange for government-made cars so that people are now dependent on the government for transportation (conspiracy theorists would assume that these new vehicles are bugged/GPSed)

oh, and since Medicare/Medicaid is in danger of bankrupcy, lets not fix those organizations, lets just take over the whole health care system! Because the government has done sooooo well being involved in health care in the past.

Rant over. The picture is creepy, for sure.

Singing Tesla Coil

Who knew 500,000 volts could sound so good?

Yes, it's the Tesla coil that's making that sound. My modulating the frequency of the electrical discharge, they can control the pitch of the "sizzle" that it makes.

Farewell, baby birds!

A Face Only a Mother Could Love:

We have baby birdies!! They are quite ugly, but this does not stop their momma from being irritated with me for taking pictures of them, so this is my one and only picture. I did wake them up, which probably caused them to use more energy, so I'm sure she has to work a little harder, but now the world can see her accomplishment!

This is momma bird:

I'm not entirely sure what kind of birds they are, but if one of my learned readers knows, feel free to enlighten us!

Oh, and this is a picture of our passion flower for Stephen:

And a bonus picture, because I may never figure out how to get the pictures off of my camera again:
