As part of the “Tools that Must not be Suffered to Live” theme, Curtal Friar has some awful duct tape on display.  To view it, it tears off little strips of my soul and leaves them stuck everyplace.

I forgot to ask him if they were real or p-shop.  I think I forgot.  If I didn’t forget I forgot that.

It’s been an awful day.  The kind of work day that makes you wish you could be killed in a 3-way collision with an elephant and a flaming blimp before you get back to work tomorrow.  The kind of day that makes you feel like you got gnawed on by sharks with frickin’ lasers on their heads.

More on this post later tonight when I unwiiiiiiiiiind.

Here’s a cute Dino Egg thing my daughter got me as a boy’s present for Father’s Day.  It cracks out of it’s shell over a period of days.

Sweet, huh?  She picked good.

I couldn’t resist… on Fark… Amish Sexter sends loads of explicit stuff to 12 year old girl, drives horse and buggy to Indiana for meeting, arrested and photographed.

You couldn’t make it up IF YOU TRIED.

Yoder’s contact with the [pre-menstrual minor] began with a random text sent to her phone. When the  parents learned of their daughter’s contact with Yoder, they took control of her phone and continued communicating with Yoder, who sent about 600 texts, as well as [unclothed] photos and [naughty] videos to the her.

Is dragging a perv to death behind a horse and buggy a legal punishment?

Cruel Wife has sucked away all my time by asking about playsets for kids.   Sooooo, no relaxation for me and I’ll post another Fark link for your convenience:   Woman steals mink coat in her underwear.

Great Caesar’s Ghost!  How big do you have to be to steal a mink coat in your underwear???   This big, apparently.

Draw Mohammed Day

Everybody Draw Mohammed Day.   I love it.

Some of this stuff was cut out of yesterday’s post and put here to make it more cohesive – like one big ball of sticky phlegm.

****

This is a piece titled: “Mohammad found in a ham and cheese sandwich by Texas housewife”

****

Wow.  I’m kind of surprised this didn’t get death threats.

****

Oh dear.  I remember this but never saw a photo of it until last night.

Posted this graphic I did a LONG time ago.  Worth throwing up again.

I suspect Mohammed’s real secret is the whole cross-dressing thing.  Eddie Izzard may be able to pull that off but some folks ought not go getting gussied up.

Happy VD.

That is Happy Valentine’s Day to you.  Not “Happy Sexually Transmitted Disease”.

Here is a Shameless Plug for Weasel – isn’t that a great card?  It’s what I got for Cruel Wife – you can add your own text inside, too.

I like Weasel’s Zazzle stuff.  Even got CW a coffee mug wtih “Death from Above Kittehs” on it.

Daily Mail (dot co dot UK):

Interviewed by the highly sympathetic BBC, which still insists on describing the leaked emails as ‘stolen’, Professor Jones has conceded that he ‘did not do a thorough job’ of keeping track of his own records.

His colleagues recall that his office was ‘often surrounded by jumbled piles of papers’.

Even more strikingly, he also sounds much less ebullient about the basic theory, admitting that there is little difference between global warming rates in the Nineties and in two previous periods since 1860 and accepting that from 1995 to now there has been no statistically significant warming.

The admissions will be seized on by sceptics as fresh evidence that there are serious flaws at the heart of the science of climate change and the orthodoxy that recent rises in temperature are largely man-made.

That kind of wording is loaded.  It implies that we “sceptics” have little argument to go on and are waiting for tidbits of value doled out by the dogmatic AGW proponents.  That there, my friends, is biased writing at it’s best – stealthy unless you stop and read it more closely.

While over at cb’s place (Soylent Green) viewing his shameless pimping of some of my stuff among other stuffs, a randomly generated similar hits list had this topic “shameless self-promotion, humility, and blogging“.

Why do I blog?  Good question.  Let me count the ways…

  1. I’m a narcissistic person
  2. I meet new people, and very interesting people at that
  3. I read other’s interesting thoughts
  4. I’m a narcissistic person
  5. I’m opinionated
  6. Every now and then I have something to contribute
  7. I have NO humility (not that this is a requisite to be a blogger, whether you have it or not)

****

Cruel Wife sent me this, saying “I’m interested in going”.  Well, gosh darn it, so am I.  Probably drag the whole family along and about six geeked-out co-workers.

The World Steam Expo.   I mean, gee-whiz, it’s only in Dearborne.  I bet we could convince iamfelix to go, too – especially since we missed meeting up for the local Tea Party when it came through.  (If you decide to go ‘felix, I’ll buy the coney dogs and onion-rings)

Huh.

My blog has been slow since I left/returned from vacation.  Either the hiatus busted the momentum thingy or something changed in my writing but hits are way down.

Ever have one of those days where you feel like you could have done something different, anything actually, and it might have been a better day?  You know… things like sell a kidney, win a free sandwich with the Subway instant-win game, gotten a pedicure, wormed the neighbor’s cat, jaywalked, made macaroni art…

It wasn’t a bad day, honest.  It was just a slow day after a week and a half of pressure to get some real-world data for a project, and today was flat.  Dull.  Listless.  It had all the excitement and spontaneity of a librarian convention in Nebraska.  It was like watching a 70’s gameshow re-run.

I did clean off a small corner of my desk though – which hasn’t happened in over a year – so I could put down a cup of coffee.  I actually scrubbed the surface a little bit with a napkin and some cold coffee.

I did find a really cool link.  Learned something.  Caught me off guard.  Like how to disguise an entire factory.

Deep pools are cool, too.

Some things however, have decreased the net value of my day.  Case in point – trash as art.

Negative?  Positive?  IMAGINARY?  You decide.  Loungin’ lizards.

Positive.  Definitely positive.  Positively alien but cool.  A city concept art piece. Project Indigo.

My God, the 70’s sucked.  This TV set just proves it.   As did BJ and the Bear.

Looks like when guns and pranks mix, someone is sleeping on the couch.

That’s it for tonight kids.  My clock done run down.  More tomorrow
