Late tribute to Earth Day/Alpha Proxima Day.  I don’t know the story behind this, but it looks like this Dodge Ram runs on coal, just like the electric cars do in many parts of the country.

In the UK, Tallbloke, the blogger who broke the Climategate 2.0 emails on his blog Tallbloke’s Talkshop has had 2 laptops and a router seized by six detectives from the Metropolitan Police, the Norfolk Constabulary and the Computer Crime division.

He had an an inkling something was up the previous evening “when WordPress forwarded a notice from the U.S. Department of Justice.”

Watts Up With That has the notice and some excellent commentary. The most telling so far is from commenter Gail Combs:

You forget that one of the e-mails shows that the US Department of Energy “ordered” Jones to evade the FOIA requests.

The head of the Department of Energy at the time had just served as the US Ambassador to the United Nations prior to his appointment as Secretary of the Department of Energy.

This could be a very big CYA for the US government.

And someone has alerted Drudge. Let’s see if he picks it up.

They were polite and promised to return the kit after cloning the disks.
They say I am not a suspect for any crime.

These are the kinds of pictures that make me smile. It is also irrefutable proof that not all bears shit in the woods, and that some bears sing while taking care of business. Then it occurred to me to follow some of the links on SG’s site, and I found a map.

It is intuitively obvious to the casual observer that the original version was missing some critical information, so I took the liberty of enhancing it, just to post it here on The Overnight Open Thread.

Oil prices are up. Propane prices are up. Methane prices are going up, too, so save it for a rainy day. Don’t keep ‘em bottled up inside, collect ‘em all and cash ‘em in!

Register a brand name like I did (Paint Peeler X™) and wait for the FartMart to open a retail outlet near you. Then you can barter your best Blogmock Barn Burners and get paid for your flatulence daily, weekly, or monthly as required.
