Bumper stickers for fun.  Buy a truckload and put my Little Lemurs through college…

Working on a Jolokia pepper t-shirt and mug for Curtal Friar at Fountain Abbey.   It must somehow incorporate steel balls and a ghost pepper – I think I know what I want to do with that imagery…

The things you find on Fark.  Man fakes severe brain injury to get nurse to change his adult diapers.  No, I don’t have a thing for infantile adults wearing diapers, I’m just repulsed by them.

Why yes, yes I do want to be tracked even more heavily by my smartphone, data harvesting combines, and my government.  Hotels may use smartphones as keys.

Recently it was posed to me that perhaps I.C. Weiner made a mistake and since he admitted that he committed creepery, lied, and then owned up to it (after being caught) perhaps he should be given credit for that at least.

It took me a while to ponder on it and came to the conclusion that no, he shouldn’t be given another chance, not at all.

Why?

Because every single adult has lied as a kid, got caught, got punished, and yes, we do know right from wrong.  That lesson is learned – whether or not someone chooses to live by it.  As an adult there’s no excuse and you should face consequences.  He’s 46 freakin’ years old.  That’s old enough to know right and wrong and to be judged accordingly.

Now?  Why now, Weiner is a child predator, too!   What do you want to bet now his wife ditches him?

And somehow, Mrs. Righteous Grandmother declines to denounce the now-detumescent Weiner.  She’s a real ball of fire, that swamp-drainer.

According to Tennessee law, if you are upset by any imagery I post, you can sue me.

For that and several other reasons, I hate Tennessee.

Jeez, son… you got no reason to kill yourself… you’ve got your whole life ahead of y… nevermind.

Gosh, sucks to be you on so many levels.

Final Fantasy VII was an excellent game.  I never imagined Tifa looking like this, though.  Not that I disapprove.

Below that… Power Girl?  I am wondering where she was when I was twelve.  Probably the same place Agatha in Girl Genius was – not in my possession.  Oh well, I had Kathy Smith on a poster in my room.

Janet Napolitano arguing that there’s no logic in profiling muslim men under the age of 35.  Oh, ok then, well… what the hell did she say?

“You’re not using good logic there. You’ve got to use actual intelligence that you received. And, so, you might — all you’ve given me is a kind of status. You have not given me a technique for tactic or behavior. Something that would suggest somebody is not Muslim, but Islamic, that has actually moved into the category of violent extremists,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said at a forum on U.S. security and preventing terrorist attacks.

“We have ways to make some of those cuts. And they involve the intel that comes in, the analysis that goes on. For example, we often times, for travelers entering the United States, we won’t not do what is called a secondary inspection just because they are a 35-year- old male who appears to be Muslim, whatever that means. But we know from intelligence that if they have a certain travel pattern over a certain period of time, that should cause us to ask some more significant questions than if we don’t.”

– Janet Napolitano on whether we profile or not, maybe, whatever that means

Let’s see – she wanders before she finally doesn’t make a point.   Second paragraph – non-sequitur, a double negative, and still doesn’t make a coherent statement.  I feel much safer-er now.  If she handles security like she speaks, stupid things like groping and searching old ladies and children are going to start happening.

Oops.
