High School Madness - More Science High

Well, well, well. We at the All Spin Zone are in fine form on this Happy Tuesday, eh? I was going to wait to post this piece, but I don't wanna. There's some wildfire thing going on.

Principal Poop: "Knowledge for the pupi ... people, he said. Give them a light and they'll follow it anywhere. We think that is a fair ... and a wise guy ... dable rule to be guided by. And we're not afraid of it, are we?

(Heckler: Eat it! Poop: You bet. Heckler: Eat it raw! Poop: Rah, rah, rah.)

Yes. That's the spirits we have here."
"So come on kids...
Line up.
Sign up.
And reenlist today.
Because we need more schooling,
For more students,
For More Science High."
Religious right fights science for the heart of America (The Guardian)

Excerpt: "They believe that the naturalistic bias of science is in fact atheistic, and that if we don't change science, we can't believe in God. And so this is really an attack on all of science. Evolution is just the weak link."
Principal Poop: "But don't worry, don't worry. Your food, housing,... insecurity will be guaranteed by your Department of Redundancy Department and the Natural Guard."

The quote at the very top and just above is from Firesign Theatre's Don't Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers (May 1970). There's much more in it (and their other albums) that is frighteningly a propos today. Some days it fills my head... monopolizing Life's Little Soundtrack. Most things never really change. At very least they repeat incessantly. One of the perks of growing old, ya see. You use up less hard drive space that way. It's just a theory.

Who's makin' the beer run? ;-)
