President Obama feels that if we meet with moderate elements of the Taliban, we can settle our differences.I think we should give them what they want.Give a jihadist a Christmas present.Send the stupid bastards to visit Allah, and bring our troops home...

The prettiest woodpile I've ever seen

My dad emailed me this photo today. I think it's just lovely. In fact, I'm not sure I'd have the heart to take the sculpture apart, even if I did need the firewood.

Dad didn't know where the photo came from. Do any of you? I'd love to know whether it's the work of an artist, a creative cabin owner with a lot of free time—or even just a nice Photoshop job. Whichever it is, I like it.

UPDATE: Solved! In, like, two seconds. You guys are amazing. The artist is Alastair Heseltine.

Also, I just want to take a quick moment to clarify that, when I wrote "creative cabin owner with a lot of free time", I did not mean that as an insult. My apologies for crappy wording. I meant that more to distinguish professional artists from people who don't consider themselves capital-A Artists, or who have other jobs, but who make the time to pursue artistic hobbies that they love. Something like this couldn't have been thrown together in an afternoon on a whim. It was something somebody had to have taken a lot of time to do. That's what I meant. I just worded it really poorly.

U.S. Army Rejecting 80% of Kids For Being Dumb Obese Criminals

He's a lean, mean, fighting machine.A sad new study makes that whole "DREAM Act" defeat a little more tragic: More than 80% of Americans trying to join the Army can't meet the very low minimum requirements. The first 75% gets immediately disqualified "because they are physically unfit, have a criminal record or didn't graduate high school." That second pool is then given a very basic test — a question supposedly on the test is "If 2 plus x equals 4, what is the value of x?" And more than 23% flunk it. If the "DREAM Act" was basically a way to import some higher quality recruits for our doomed foreign wars, just as the Roman Empire had to eventually hire the barbarians to protect the frontiers from other barbarians, then the legislative defeat of that new policy probably means we can skip the centuries of pathetic decline and just go straight to hunting rats in the street, for Christmas presents.

The Associated Press reports:

Recruits must score at least a 31 out of 99 on the first stage of the three-hour test to get into the Army ….

A Department of Defense report notes the military must recruit about 15 percent of youth, but only one-third are eligible. More high school graduates are going to college than in earlier decades, and about one-fourth are obese, making them medically ineligible.

In 1980, by comparison, just 5 percent of youth were obese.
