This is the most beautiful animated gif I have ever seen in my entire life. I want you all to know I am exercising the toughest self-control of my life to prevent myself from making it a virtual .sig file for every single post I ever make on MeFi.

But in any case, the double-post allows me to repost this comment I made at the bottom of the other thread, far too late for anyone to have noticed:

Ironically, there was some warblogger who made a post several weeks or months ago (damn that Daypop for only indexing for TWO WEEKS now), openly calling for Bush to be given the NPP this year. After all, Dubya has seen to it that one of the most violent, oppressive countries on Earth has been given peace and freedom, and has decimated an organization dedicated to spreading pure violence and death to the entire civilized world. Kofi Annan, meanwhile, spends all his timing talking about what a wonderful world this would be if everyone would stop fighting and have a lot more meetings. (And that is precisely what he - and the UN as a whole, not just himself - were awarded the prize for last year: "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world."

As long as they're giving out awards like that - and to Yassir Arafat, to anyone who devotes their lives to making blindly obvious proclamations such as "nuclear war is BAD!", etc - the NPPs are obviously going to be little more than a joke. They're not really about achieving peace, they're merely about celebrating those that best adhere to EU leftist political dogma, particularly in the last decade or so.

Anyway, you don't have to worry about Bush or Blair EVER winning the NPP. As Snopes has noted: "Neither Bush nor Blair is likely to win. Bishop Gunnar Staalsett, a member of the secretive five-member Nobel committee which elects the winner, has spoken out against the U.S.-led and British-backed strikes on Afghanistan."

(If anyone remembers what warblogger made that post and where it is, a pointer would be appreciated.)

The junk subdomain is where Matt dumps pictures and graphics that occasionally prove useful and/or amusing. Such as of bunnies. It's just a glorified /images directory, I think.

I believe the Nobel prize nominations are open. In which case it means absolutely nothing that someone is nominated. Someone on MetaFilter could nominate me for the prize and it would mean just as much.
