Skyrim

I’m really into Skyrim when I’m not too dopey to function, which means I haven’t done a lot of it in the last month, but I’ve done some.  It’s a quite good game if you haven’t already seen it.

Alert co-worker Laconic Pup noted that Skyrim’s dragons can be modified so they’re cooler and macho-er.

Zoidberg mudcrab mod… I can’t stand Futurama’s Zoidberg and think he should be dipped in melted butter and fed to Blernsball fans.  So dispatching him in Skyrim sounds pretty good.

Yes, the only poll that counts is election day but here is an example of  wishful self-delusion:

When it comes to how Americans view President Obama going into the new year, there appears to be very little spirit of Auld Lang Syne. Instead, according to the new Washington Whispers poll, many voters aren’t forgetting what they dislike about Obama and want him out office.

In our New Year’s poll, when asked what news event they fear most about 2012, Americans by a margin of two-to-one said Obama’s reelection. Only 16 percent said they fear the Democrat won’t win a second term, while 33 percent said they fear four more years.

The problem is when you read 2:1 against it is easy to miss the fact that the “2” part is 33% of voters.  Thirty three percent accounts for the strict party-line conservatives that will never like a liberal in the WH.  But only 16% fear that Obama won’t win a second term… now that is noteworthy.  But even that doesn’t tell you how many people would likely vote in either direction.

One thing we can say for sure is that none of the presidential candidates that are likely to survive til election day are worth a fake nickel.
