Poor Tesla. Always getting kicked when he's down.
Awesome discussion of sexism in Emo music, and how women's experiences are devalued and women's voices ignored in music genres.
Learning how to separate and move the irises in our backyard bed. July or August after the flowers have bloomed, apparently.
Really beautiful poster designs.
this is a cute blog with many cute illustrations. You will probably like it. Take a look!
40% of the cases of priests abusing children and young adults involved girls and young women. And that only covers those under the age of consent – it doesn't even begin to address priests raping women in their parish and even nuns.
Awesome – lets offload these losers onto some other city and take the cash we've been sinking into them to keep the current library branches open, and maybe even open some new ones. Maybe some residents will get themselves an edumacation and stop looking like such ignorant slobs in comments on the local newspaper website. It's a win-win-win! (Except for whatever poor city gets stuck with the team. Those guys will be losers.)
The Indianapolis Public Library is proposing closing 4 branches due to a budget deficit due to property tax caps. Here's a solution – let's sell the Pacers and the Colts to another city and use the money to pay for something worthwhile, like keeping current library branches an opening new ones. (gee, can you tell I'm made about this?)
When you remove the cat from the cartoon, Jon’s behavior becomes a study of mental illness.
I’ve visited the XKCD comic’s website before in passing, but I stumbled across it again today, and read more of it; it’s great.
In Connor’s second thesis it is stated ‘There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.’ Does the routine destroy our creativity or do we lose creativity and fall into the routine? Anyway, who’s up for a road trip!
Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator: Nothing about this really, I was just trying to remember the name of it. Because I’ve been reading my friend Lori’s chronicle of experiences with her Vagus Nerve Stimulator (electronic device that helps prevent epileptic siezures) and I was thinking that the VNS sounded like some sort of Ray Gun. Then I started wondering if Lori hadn’t made a joke like that a while back, and I just didn’t remember it. Hmmm.
Holy crap — it’s the beer fairy, a Japanese cartoon character. That’s almost even cuter than my dog. Not quite, but close. Beer fairy. heh heh. funny. Now how the hell do I buy this stuff? Dammit, the Japanese sites are so hard to use. I guess you can only buy this stuff in stores in Japan. Well, now I have something to do if I ever go to Japan.
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, where are you?
We got some work to do now.
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, where are you?
We need some help from you now.
Come on Scooby-Doo, I see you…
pretending you got a sliver.
But you’re not fooling me, cause I can see,
the way you shake and shiver.
You know we got a mystery to solve,
so Scooby-Doo be ready for your act.
(Scooby-Doo) Uh-uh Uh-uh
Don’t hold back!
And Scooby-Doo if you come through
you’re going to have yourself a scooby snack!
That’s a fact!
Scooby-Dooby-Doo, here are you.
You’re ready and you’re willing.
If we can count on you Scooby-Doo,
I know you’ll catch that villain.
(2014 update – not a clue why I was posting the Scooby-Do theme song here.)
