SPAM the other Mystery Meat

"Why hide in the shadows when you can shine" - GOODSTUFF

The official Hacker's Jargon (3.2.0) meaning

:spam: vt.  [from "Monty Python's Flying Circus"] 1. To crash a program by overrunning a fixed-size buffer with excessively large input data.

2. To cause a newsgroup / blog  to be flooded with irrelevant or inappropriate messages. You can spam a newsgroup with as little as one well- (or ill-) planned message


The Ballad of Jed Spampett 

Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed
Poor white trash, kinda crazy in the head
Then one day as he was shootin, at some food
Up from the ground came those cans of blue

           Spam that is
           Pink and sweet
           Mystery Meat

Well the next thing you know, he could feed the whole clan
When out of the woods popped a Hormel man
He said Spamabama is the place you oughta' be
So they loaded up the truck but only got to Antrey

           Hill folks that is
           Make you squeal!!!
           Bubba ville!!!

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his clan
And they would like to thank you folks for chockin'down that Spam
Your all invited back 'ere morn to this localaty
To take a shot and see if ya got a case of dispepsy

           Gas pain that is!!!
           Moan and groan
           Get the Rolaids !! Ya hear?!

 From 1939 SPAM, the canned pork meat, became ubiquitous both in the UK. A although rationed, it was generally easily available and not subject to supply shortages, as were other meats

Margaret Thatcher had fond memories of SPAM and actually referred to it once as a “wartime delicacy”

Nikita Khrushchev went much further and actually said: “without SPAM we wouldn't have been able to feed our army”

Some soldiers referred to Spam as "ham that didn't pass its physical" and "meatloaf without basic training."


Those rumors of President-Obama being a Muslim have been laid to rest by his very visible consumption of a porky pan-Asian fusion delicacy--well that's what fancy food folks will be calling Spam musubi now that Obama noshed on one while playing golf, making the Hawaiian snack chic. 

Old man seeks doctor.
"I eat SPAM daily", he says.

This huge meta / photo blog celebrates Charlie's Angels's bouncing boobs. Also some neat science from Rosetta and Curiosity


Charlie's Angels [aliens] Original TV Cast

The show that defined "jiggle TV" was Charlie's Angels, which was originally pitched to the network as Alley Cats. The Powers-That-Be decided that sexy bra-less female detectives that regularly man-handled perps might be a hit, but only if they were projected in a more positive light. So, instead of calling them "Alley Cats," they called them Angels.

Does Farrah Fawcett’s hair spell “SEX” in her famous poster?

There is a legend to explain the incredible popularity of the Farrah Fawcett poster, which sold over 12 million copies. It was always a bit of a mystery why that image in particular became such a focus of popular fixation. 

The subliminal seduction theory offered a seemingly plausible explanation.

We've talked before about themes that have been used over and over ad nauseum.  Certain artful conceptions, for whatever reason, get recycled endless in vintage advertising, movie posters, paperback illustrations, album covers, etc.  We’ve seen the “Conan Pose“, the “Women Running from Houses” theme, and, perhaps the worst offender: The A Frame.   Today, we’re looking at yet another offender, the oft repeated “Mrs. Robinson Motif”.

Because sometimes you just have to relax and enjoy the view. As usual, links may be to pics not normally considered safe for work, and the management is not responsible for the ugly consequences of you failure to exercise discretion when making with the clicky.

The scene combines multiple frames taken with Mastcam's right-eye camera on Aug. 7, 2014, during the 712th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars. It shows an outcrop at the edge of "Hidden Valley," seen from the valley floor. This view spans about 5 feet (1.5 meters) across in the foreground. 

"a pattern typical of a lake-floor sedimentary deposit not far from where flowing water entered a lake"  --  It looks more like wind erosion too me...

Rosetta has found that the composition of the water vapor at Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko is significantly different to that found on Earth.

Of the 11 comets for which measurements have been made, it is only the Jupiter-family Comet 103P/Hartley 2 that was found to match the composition of Earth’s water, in observations made by ESA’s Herschel mission in 2011.
