  • Sacha,

    Results? The whole purpose is to harvest snippets of illiterate outrage that we can recycle as a substitute for news stories..

  • FletcherB,

    Yeah, look.... this whole mass is energy thing is obviously a scam....

    Otherwise, we'd be able to take any old unwanted stuff..... like a dead fly, a dog turd, or some rotten framing from a leaky home, and turn it into electricity and stuff.

    Energy crisis? What energy crisis? According to Einstein you should be able to drive your car for a year on a teaspoon of dirt, or use one dump-truck of rubbish to power all of Auckland for a year!


    P.S. at first, upon reading the headline, I thought maybe we were finally going to get another installment on the history of energy series? Humour is great, but I like to learn stuff too :)

    ALOL. Very good.
    If I could add the single left-leaning defender-against-the-wave post:

    DefenderOfThePeeple, Titirangi
    I realise that all you fascist Nactionals just want to sell gravity-based property rates to all your rich wanker developer mates by keeping the masses ignorant of Einstein's brilliance but it won't work! When will the Herald give up on it's VRWC attack on grassroots science that threatens the elite and admit that the speed of light squared is an inalienable right for ALL people, not just the wealthy wankers that have wrung the sweat and blood out of us workers to get their Omaha McMansion?

  • Bart Janssen,

    So going on a T-shirt.

    Yeah enough with the books, where are the PAS T-Shirts?

    And Muscle Shirts!

    And mugs. We need mugs. Emma's output alone over the last couple of months would have been worth a few of those.

    It pains me to see commercial opportunities going begging.

  • Danielle,

    And mugs. We need mugs.

    If I have a Chemical Brothers mug in my pantry (and I do, from a show I saw in the 1990s! It was so incongruous I had to buy it), we should be able to have PA mugs, dammit. Someone make it happen!

    (I'm hanging out for 'it's knowledge bro' to get printed on something I can buy, too.)

  • Sacha,

    Ask Haywood to extend himself and make a script that turns any PAS phrase into something lucratively decorative and portable..

    Cafepress.com?

    Also, can we have an "inject meme into wider public consciousness" button? Actually, wearing the shirts would do that.

    Apropos "it's knowledge bro" t-shirts: I'd want a posterised Lincoln illustration along with the slogan.

    Einstein was clearly gay

    Yeah, it's knowledge, bro.

  • Emma Hart,

    Cafepress.com?

    Shipping. Kitsch-on-demand closer to home? Not that Cafe Press doesn't work nicely.

    Note to self: forget novel, write t-shirt slogans.

    I love the sound of face-palm in the morning...

  • Grant Stone,

    You're still writing novels?

    I find Twitter short stories much easier to finish.

    But I agree. Closer to home would be better, if there is one.

  • giovanni tiso,

    Einstein? Sounds Asian to me.

    I try to work the following joke (by Bruce Lowitt, but I heard it from Moni Ovadia first) into all social situations. I'd been waiting for a PAS opening for months.

    A Chinese man and his Jewish friend are walking along one day when the Jewish man suddenly slugs the Chinese man in the mouth.

    "What was that for?" the Chinese man asks.

    "That was for Pearl Harbor!"

    "Pearl Harbor? That was the Japanese. I'm Chinese."

    "Chinese, Japanese, what's the difference?"

    They continue walking in silence, then the Chinese man punches the Jew in the face.

    "What's that all about?" the Jew asks.

    "That was for the Titanic!"

    "The Titanic? That was an iceberg."

    "Iceberg, Goldberg, what's the difference?".

    Send one for PaulHenry to wear.

    BTW, can someone send me a large bag of whatever it is that sustains David's imagination?

    Proof that I am a nerdlinger: I just created an Obamicon with a picture of Lincoln and 'it's knowledge bro' on it.
