NJ items: Baby Bob won’t be happy
A group of investors who bought franchises from Quiznos Sub sued the company yesterday, accusing the chain of deceiving them into investing and then refusing to approve store locations. You can, however, send your mom a Baby Bob postcard on time for mother’s day.
Samizdatistas are posting on the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science, governmentium
Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
The scientists must have been working in New Jersey. I found (via SmadaNek) this article from The Last Angry Men, The Trenton Circus: Government Unrestrained from last March, which will give you an idea of why the “atomic mass” of Jersian governmentium continues to increase.
On that not-glamorous topic, NJ taxes, read about The Enlighten Property Tax Reduction Plan. Just yesterday DynamoBuzz was asking, If Not Income Taxes, Then What??
On a different subject, but still in NJ, my Mercer County wildlife watch continues, with traffic delays on the Great Road this morning, caused by, you guessed it, deer.
Sluggo has a quiz, and it turns out he’s more normal than I. Sluggo’s score is 55%; mine is 50%, which probably doesn’t come as a surpise to frequent visitors to TBHB. Jeff Jarvis posts on NPR ombudsman Jeffrey Dvorkin who’s calling bloggers amoral.
I wonder what Dvorkin’s normalcy score would be.
