Cortez the Killer, gentle soul, wretched anachronism, 18-time expellee from Alcoholics Anonymous, COBOL Chess Grandmaster, CPA, Brooklyn foodie & urban homesteader, nut job, Myspace & Livejournal devotee, 16th century conquistador of the New Americas, lone survivor of an ill fated assault-zeppelin assault on the headquarters of the Scotland YES campaign, AND New Age guru, recently returned from a six-month stint as Sergeant-at-Arms of the BICEP 2 installation at the South Pole and declared via press release and YouTube video that the so-called Cosmic Microwave Background ("CMB") was "a goddamned bunch of bullshit nonsense," and that furthermore the alleged polarization of light in the CMB, which "scientists" claimed proved the Theory of Cosmic Inflation was in fact caused by Cortez himself, and was nothing more nor less than the interference pattern caused in the BICEP 2 instruments by his sword-dancing on the snow with his 18-pound cutlass, described elsewhere in these diaries. "It was all a prank thought up by them Chandra fellas," he said, slurring his words just a bit.

Print Story Well, that turned out unexpectedly well for a change

From the very first moment that I first heard rumors of using stout to make chocolate cake I was in love with the idea. In fact, I was more in love with the idea than I was with any actual chocolate cake made with stout.

It turns out that I merely had not yet found the right recipe. The perfect chocolate stout cake is composed of three things: three layers of moist, delicious chocolate stout cake; salted caramel sauce to hold the layers together; and irish cream butter cream frosting.

Recipe follows.

Print Story Am I missing something?
Why do people insist on trying to put square pegs into round holes?

There seems to be a trend these days of forcing people to approve/endorse stuff that they don't really approve of. As a libertarian this is a hateful kind of coercion I would like to see stopped.

Feel old, as LO is supposed to get her license next week and I...am reluctantly looking at cars with her.

So, what do you guys know about high mileage Volvos?

Hi!

I'm going to be in NYC the week of the 29th on business, and aphrael and I are planning a dinner because science says internet strangers should meet over comestibles. And we always do what science tells us.
