The Seven Olive Bloody Mary is a Hemmingway Bloody Mary, heavy on the Mary, heavy on the ice, and heavy on the olives.
To a large pitcher (anything smaller is “worthless”) add:
1 chunk of ice (the biggest that will fit)
1 pint of vodka
1 pint chilled tomato juice
1 tablespoon “Worcester” sauce
1 jigger fresh lime juice
Pinch celery salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
Pinch black pepper
Several drops of Tabasco
“Keep on stirring and taste it to see how it is doing. If you get it too powerful weaken with more tomato juice. If it lacks authority add more vodka.”
From a letter to Bernard Peyton signed
April 5, 1947 by Ernest Hemingway
I made this recipe with all the ingredients in a two-quart pitcher minus the vodka and ice (pour desired amount of vodka in your glass over your ice to achieve suitable authority — then add mixture). When making the mixture I eyeballed most of the ingredients until my taste was satiated.
Once your drink is mixed, drop six olives into glass (not the jumbo olives, unless that’s your thing), ponder the devil, then drop the seventh to come closer to God.

Was reading through one of my favorite cheezburger network sites, Dropping The Science, and found some interesting articles, videos, and pictures.
I share with you the wonders of science:
Heard of the Fibonacci spiral? well here is a great video giving examples of math found in nature. The video renders the concept in a beautiful and exciting way:
Haven’t had a chance to watch this video with sound yet, but looks interesting:
Phyisists and their blackboards:
Have you ever thought we should be exploring space much more fervently than we are now? Well, good news, DARPA has a 100 Year Star Ship program in place. The agency recently awarded a $500,000 grant to a group tasked with all the sticky logistics of creating an interstellar spaceship. Link gathered from Dropping The Science:

In an attempt to stimulate some discussion: can computers become conscious? Do computers only do what they are told? Does a being need to have freewill to truly be said to have consciousness? Computers are told what to do by code, is not the human mind the same? told how to operate by genes.

Maurice Sendak author of Where The Wild Things Are. From link:
In this 2004 interview with Bill Moyers, Sendak reveals some of the early childhood memories and surprisingly dark influences behind his work. Shaped by immigrant parents and the tragedy of the Holocaust, Sendak provides frank insight into his complicated psyche and a rare window into the soul of an acclaimed artist. He also discusses how he shaped the character of Max, the mischievous lead in his blockbuster book, and where he might be today.
I have known about Where The Wild Things Are. Now I know a bit about the author.
Poor robot. I’m sure the scientists won’t be so hubris; mocking their mechanical creation when it learns homicidal rage.
We as a species can relate because we are all born with clumsy mitten hands. The desire to be more and live on forever, but only having clumsy mitten hands– lacking the proper facilities to realize our desires.

Look, it’s a cat in business attire giving sage advice.
I know this is a general rule for me: When I fail, if possible, I destroy all evidence I even made an attempt.
