Blog and conquer

I guess the blog should be fed on a Monday morning.

I don't have much but here are a couple things that have caught my eye of late and a bunch of stuff from you folks.

Could a Mongolian warlord have been radically misunderstood? 

And did he really once meet a talking unicorn that convinced him not to invade India? A different look at Ghengis Khan.

What if 2020 was just a rehearsal?

A Crypto-Trading Hamster Performs Better Than Warren Buffett And The S&P 500

The choice of a man who saw an elephant in a hole.

Terry D sends Why worry?, a great tune with Chet and the Everlys.

Orange County Karen - old but funny

Hudgins sent: Our constitutional crisis is already here.

21 million say Biden is illegitimate and Trump needs to be restored by violence.

Renee sends comedy wildlife photography award winners.

Covid and CD47 protein.

From Redditt:

A horse walks into a bar and orders a pint

The bartender says, " you're in here a lot. Do you think you might be an alcoholic? " The horse says, "I don't think I am," and promptly vanishes from existence.

See, this was a joke about Descartes' famous philosophical statement, "I think, therefore I am." I could have mentioned that at the beginning, but that would have been putting Descartes before the horse.

Re: Scotus

“It is all well and good for justices to tell the public that their decisions reflect their judicial philosophies, not their political affiliations. If the right side’s judicial philosophies always produce results favored by Republicans and the left side’s judicial philosophies always produce results favored by Democrats, there is little chance of persuading the public there is a difference between the two.”
