Mimicry Monday

A day upon which I steal M. Bouffant's schtick and post a pretty picture of clouds in lieu of anything else vaguely interesting.

The sunset got prettier about half an hour later, but by then I was driving and couldn't stop for a better picture. It was great, you'll just have to trust me.

Terrible Technology Tuesday

Some of my vast readership may remember my post about the creepy running robot our good friends at DARPA were developing. Well, there's a new/different one from those scamps at MIT, and this one is actually able to run on its own, instead of being stuck tethered to a treadmill:

Oh, and this one is electric, so it's nice and quiet and stealthy.

So, yeah, there's that.

I, for one, do not welcome our soon-to-arrive, armed-and-armored robot cheetah overlords.

What year is it?

I may have had too much to drink, but I think I just saw the prez on the TV machine telling me we really need to bomb some brown people across the ocean. I thought we already tried that, but I must be misremembering things -- our beloved political/media class couldn't possibly be feeding us another line of shit, right?

I Saw The News Today. Oh Boy.

Cyanide and Happiness, a daily webcomic
Cyanide & Happiness @ Explosm.net

Same shit getting worse by the minute, same stupid talking heads blabbering about it. I don't even know why I bother.

Thankless Thursday

[tap tap tap]... Is this thing on?

Oh, ok, good. [ahem]

I'm still alive. Here's some random shit:

This comic made me think of a certain electrician.

The world continues to fall apart, but you knew that.

Continuing the theme from that last post several eons ago, I seem to be managing to gather even more gems of spammy wisdom. Here are some excellent pieces of advice that come with lots of links to boner pills:

  • The earliest recipe for fruit idiot dates to the mid seventeenth century.
  • Approach them to trigger the fight, then duck back into the hallway. After a breakup, you are emotionally upset and your ex boyfriend is angry.
  • Seems like the same paralysis is also happening at the local and state level.
  • Lately, he has been pretty good with other dogs and such. This is ok if you know where your arrest warrant was issued but it's a whole different story if you aren't sure where the warrant might be.
  • Many users have also said that this shampoo is less drying. Ιf you have an anal yeast infection you will also have redness and purple patches of small blisters.

There you have it -- from "fruit idiot" recipes, to dog's with arrest warrants, to anal infections. How can I top that? I might as well just outsource the whole blog to JanusNode at this point.

Carry on.

Wacky Wednesday

I get the weirdest spam:

Notice there in the blue print that I have been selected to receive this amazing message because I have been "identified as an Expert in [my] area of activity." I'm so honored.

Also, too: I'm kinda curious to hear more about this Bizarro "Sollar System" they talk about, but not curious enough to expose my inbox to more weirdness than it already gets pounded with [heyo!].
