Hmm, I was unaware that we’d fixed the state budget

But apparently the Lieutenant Governor thinks we have money to burn on lawsuits we’re going to lose.

The thing I love and am still most flabbergasted about with this whole states’ rights crap is that it isn’t actually about protecting the liberty of individuals. It’s about wrestling power away from the feds and then giving it to the states.

If this were to transpire somehow, us regular folks would be singing “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.” But Ramsey’d be a whole lot more important, which, I suppose, is the point.

The Truth about Seeds

So, I’m still not understanding this whole “seed” thing, for which I blame men. Ha, just kidding. Seeing if you were paying attention. But I was partially confused, I think, by the conflation of “seed” with, you know, men’s seed.

But a seed, it turns out, is more like a fertilized egg. There’s a shell of some sort, food to fuel the tiny plant embryo, and, thus, a tiny plant embryo.

I will wait here while you contemplate the incredible cuteness of a teensy tiny little plant embryo.

As for how the seed knows to kick that embryo into growing-gear, I’m still not sure.

I’m still going to assume that part’s magic.

An Update on the Redheaded Kid

“So, what did the doctors tell him yesterday?”

“They still don’t know what’s going on. They’re leaning towards some kind of epileptic episode.”

“Well, at least it’s not more stuff with his heart.”

“Yeah.”

“And no tumors or anything?”

“Not so far.”

“But damn, we’re getting to the point where we really need to be able to upload the Redheaded kid into a robot.”

Plants are growing and doing stuff!
