"Well. There's the Problem Right There. Your E-Mails Have Crabs"

"...and they're eating petroleum, which probably increases your bandwidth expenses."




It's always good not to be the one maiking thee tiepos for a changeling.

I Wonder if There's a Bag Limit

Earlier today I found myself searching for an artist credit for this image. 


(Probably painted by someone not named Pinterest)

After over an hour I still don't have the artists name (in every instance it is used it is credited to one of several image hosting sites).

Normal procedures at this blog are to move on to a different picture (unless it's a reaction shot or meme).

However, the initial Google search I conducted turned up this astounding and edifying result.



Man.

I'll have to be more careful. 

Hit one of those, it's going to be worse than a moose.

Alice and Zoroku Ends

That was remarkably satisfying despite the fact that I really would like to see more of this show.

Although, Alice and Zoroku is rather schizo in tone, the series leverages this trait quite well.. 

For one thing, it has the benefit of being completely unpredictable. 

One never knows if an episode is going to be action adventure..



...adventures in floristry...



...fast food appreciation...



....haute cuisine appreciation...



...fantasy horror...



...or merely an excuse to trot out a new action figure....



...whatever genre it's dabbling in,  Alice and Zoroku manages to be consistently good.


If you haven't watched it, you are wrong.

Inscrutability

J.Greely has some questions... we don't know what they are, but they are no doubt numerous.



I don't know what this post title means...but any sad girls in snow best get inside lest the same fate befall them. 


There is no doubt a tragic story behind this inscrutable clue. 


This picture is unrelated:

Sometimes The Only Way To Win Is Not to Play

...and leave the squabbling oppressors in the old world for the infinite potential of the new.

Because, the house gets to play with loaded dice.  

THE CLAW! an interesting piece by DWI or Steyr or Rheinmetall or...somebody. 

Surprisingly, It's completely unrelated to this...

21st Cenrury Outrage

Slow Clap...


Hustler is not my cup of tea, so I'd missed this silly nothing-burger of a story from the earlier this month. It would normally warrant no comment, beyond, perhaps, this... 



However, the fact that it WAS a story is the not only worrisome thing about it. There is a non-zero risk the company is taking by tweaking the very Jihadis on whose behalf the outrage is ostensibly expressed. That this angle was not covered at all in the linked articles, is, more than anything about this, truly "problematic".

Mashed Potatoes

The peculiar physics and myriad uses of Mashed Potatoes have not gotten sufficient attention in recent years. While the pulverized tubers are obviously a valuable source of calories, they have considerable potential in a variety of non-culinary applications. That this substance is useful for making scale models of Devils Tower has been understood for many years, but mashed potatoes can also be used for other artistic expressions as well, such as to create a representation of Kansas in winter on a table cloth, create a very passable  facsimile of an iceberg in someone's tea and it has surprising utility as a hair volumizing agent. Its low density allows it to be propelled with surprising velocity by an arm with a reach of less than 9 inches and minimal strength. Despite the obviously low sectional density of spudfluff, the fluid dynamics of mashed potatoes in air is such that the aforementioned arm with a reach<9inches can send measurable quantities a surprising distance...into the dining room, down the hall and into a guest bedroom (this latter seems to have required some sort of bank shot, ballistic analysis is pending). Most remarkably all of this can be achieved in the approximately 3 seconds it takes to turn one's back on one's 11 month old nephew to get something out of a microwave. 


I propose a study to examine these properties in greater detail and with attention paid to practical applications thereof. I will require $170,000.00, 450 Idaho potatoes and a trebuchet.

A Republic if We Can Keep It

A couple of things have just bugged me lately...



"This isn't gonna be a rant about politics again is it?"

Probably...
But it's below the fold so you don't have to be triggered, distracted or appalled if you don't want to be.
