In Memoriam: Dick Clark

Richard Augustus Wagstaff Clark, Jr., November 30, 1929 – April 18, 2012

“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death… and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?… And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies…” – The Book Of The Revelation Of St. John The Divine

The end times are upon us. That which cannot be slain has been slain. That which cannot be made to end, has an end madeth upon it. That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons death may die. The apocalypse is coming. We are all lost.

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing… For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?… “

“And there came one of the seven angels… saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters…and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy… And the woman was… decked with gold and precious stones and pearls… full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication…” – The Book Of The Revelation Of St. John The Divine

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. ” – Revelations 18:3-4

“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven… and his face was as it were the sun… And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast… from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them… And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.” – The Book Of The Revelation Of St. John The Divine

“And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.” – Revelation 22:4

“…and his face was as it were the sun…”

“And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers… And I will give him the morning star.” – Revelation 2:27-28

“And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.” – Revelation 8:2

“And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.” – Revelation 19:17-18

“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” – Revelation 1:18

“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still… For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”

The end is nigh, my friends. The end is nigh.

I Don’t Want Your…

Quite possibly the smartest photograph ever taken.

Einstein and Bohr were lifelong friends after their debates. They disagreed scientifically, but had a lot of admiration for each other. Bohr and Heisenberg were even closer friends than he and Einstein, but they distanced themselves from each other when Hitler came to power. Bohr was actively involved in smuggling Jews out of Denmark and Germany into Sweden, if I remember correctly. Heisenberg, however, remained loyal to Germany even after the Holocaust began, and tried to convince Bohr that Germany was certain to win the war. After that, they were reportedly cordial to each other, but their friendship was over and the cordiality was cold and distant.

And as long as no one watched him, Schrodinger simultaneously got along and didn’t get along with people. Yeah, I went there.
