Today I came across a new video with a new hymn for the Pastafarians! Here it is…
Today was Father’s Day. It started out better than most as I got to sleep in to a generous 8:30am. Once I had a coffee in me, my 8 year old son asked me if I wanted my gift. Sure, I said.
He’s been talking about how much I’m going to love my Father’s Day gift. To clarify how I feel about presents, I should say that any time my family gives me a gift, I don’t usually care what it is. Especially if it’s from my kids. It sounds corny, but it is the thought that counts! There is always a bit of nervousness though, just in case I don’t really know what my kid made or how to interpret the gift. “That’s beautiful sweetie, what is it again?”… Continue reading
Today marks a big milestone for pakos.me! It is my 500th post. Yah for me! I should get to 1000 faster now that I’m doing the postaday challenge.
A few small statistics for you statisticians that come to my site. Just in case you were wondering how many statisticians check out my site regularily? 9.7623 on average per day, with a standard deviation of +/- 9.7623 , 100% of the time.
I have been blogging now for 4 years. That averages out to a post every 3 days! Wow. It has never seemed that consistent! I have taken some larger breaks in there too.
But enough of the boring stuff, let’s get to the swag…
To celebrate this milestone, I have a giveaway for you, my 2 loyal visitors!
The first correct answer, gets the one coveted “The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” that I could afford on the massive budget for the site!
So without further ado, here is the skill testing question…
I will contact the winner via e-mail to get contact information.
Good luck! Oh, and thank you for checking out my site for the last 4 years…

I wrote the other day about a fascinating topic. Geniuses. I really don’t know what makes a genius, or who is correct in defining them, but I know of one person that I think is a genius.
There are some vocal sceptics out there that say that global warming is not man made. I find that the majority of these opinions are brought forth by right wing think tanks, and corporate sponsored ‘researchers’. I wouldn’t be surprised if many of these sponsors are oil companies!
Over at Scientific American, comes the question, “Is global warming a myth?”
…U.S. National Academy of Sciences declared in 2005 that “greenhouse gases are accumulating in Earth’s atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise,” adding that “the scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action.” Other leading U.S. scientific bodies, including the American Meteorological Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Geophysical Union have issued concurring statements—placing the blame squarely on humans’ shoulders…
Over at Science Centric is a bit more research to add to the mountain of evidence that global warming is being influenced by humans. This is a study about drought in Mexico.
…Droughts come and go, but the researchers believe that this drought in particular may have a human-generated component on both a regional and global scale…

The real reason there has been a pronounced increase in global temperatures? A steady decline of Pirates…
What are your thoughts? Do you think humans are wrecking the planet? Drop me a comment. I would love to hear your opinion!
