8 December 2012. Fun From the Russian Web. Beano, Beano, Who’s Got the Beano?

00 Chimp Fun. Gotta Stop Eatin' Those Rosalie

_______________________________

Refriteras, for them not “in the know”, are refried beans, a standby in Mexican/Tejano/Southwest cuisine. They’re widely-known to have very SERIOUS gastric consequences… so, don’t eat ’em unless you’re with friends and family. You’ll be rather… ahem!… musical, and rather… to put it mildly… fragrant, so, please, don’t eat ’em right before meeting the bishop (unless he’s gonna indulge, too, in that case, knock yourselves out, but I’ll be sure to be far away from the “scene of the crime”). Where did I put the Beano (that is, the American fart-suppressor, not the British kid’s comic)?

17 November 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. Score One for Darwin

Score One for Darwin

Sergei Yolkin

2012

******

A rightwing nutter in the RF Gosduma introduced a bill to outlaw Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. It’s going nowhere fast; Putin’s not behind it, neither is HH. It’s like a crackbrained proposal to label Lenin’s works “extremist”… some rightwing ROCOR loons got Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral to sign on to it. He should just quietly back out of it… that’d fix the Vlasovtsy good for such BS, wouldn’t it?

Of course, if socially-close individuals “yawn together”, and the chimp “yawns together” with Darwin, that means that the chimp is related to Darwin, thus, proving the Theory of the Evolution of Species… QED. Another multilayered Yolkin jest…

______________________________

According to research published in the journal PLoS ONE, “infectious” yawning in chimpanzees and bonobos, like in humans, can depend on how socially close two individuals are to each other.
