From Poor QT’s Almanack

Francis Bacon
Francis Bacon, who wrote, “Of all virtues and dignities of the mind, goodness is the greatest, being the character of the Deity; and without it, man is a busy, mischievous and wretched thing,” was born 455 years ago on the 22nd day of  National Personal Trainer Awareness Month.

The Making of the President 2016nado!

Trump Supporters
+ Republican consultant Katie Packer regarding Donald Trump’s supporters:
“A lot of these people don’t tend to be the most philosophical in the party.”
As many continue the search for a polite way to say it.
+ Republican consultant Rick Wilson regarding Donald Trump’s supporters:
“The fact of the matter is, most of them are childless single men who masturbate to anime.”
And some have just given up.

QT Age of Aquarius update

Stone Age
News Headline: “Stone Age massacre offers earliest evidence of human warfare.”
Keep in mind that civilization has progressed greatly since then.
We’ve developed satellite-guided weapon systems for any necessary massacres.

Florida Algae
News Headline: “Poll: Trump surging in Florida.”
News Headline: “Brain-tangling algae lurks in Florida.”

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

Bobby Flay
+ From a Food Network promotion:
“Bobby Flay challenges two NYC restauranteurs to a Sloppy Joe Throwdown (Episode BT0613H).”
Dave Carr, an Owen Sound, Ontario, reader, writes:
“You’d think the Food Network would know the word is ‘restaurateur,’ not ‘restauranteur.’ ”
+ From another Food Network promotion:
“Spinach ricotta gnocchi with tomatoe sauce, beet and arugula salad, chocolate ice with Frangelico and expresso cream (Episode CL9043).”
It seems, also, that the Food Network doesn’t know there is no “e” in “tomato” and no “x” in “espresso.”
And is time for QT’s biennial reminder that “crepe” doesn’t rhyme with “tape,” but with “prep”?


Dittoheads know better

Climate Change
News Headline: “2015 was the hottest year on record, scientists say.”
The “scientists” of climate change are trying to put one over on us again–this time with something exotic they call “arithmetic.”
