Mistress of the Dark Hot Links

Sunday, 29 October 2017

Halloween Stories For Children includes “The Hairy Toe” but I never heard of it. It’s similar to “Der Vinder Viper” without the punchline “I’m Der Vinder Viper man, come to vipe der vinders.”

The first link above says there’s a pun in the story title, but I didn’t catch it. All I could come up with was “Jarritos.” It means “little jugs” in Spanish, and its anglicized pronunciation is “hairy toes.” It’s one of the better soft drinks to come out of Mexico, and Jarritos Tamarindo is the best.

1978 UFO drone. “The problem was not getting it to fly… The problem was getting it to land.”

Here are some examples of skeuomorphism.

Here’s jaw-dropping evidence that President Trump colluded with Russia to throw the 2016 election after a year of investigation by the DNC, DOJ, FBI, CIA, MSM and others.

The greatest voice in cartoons: Mel Blanc described the business to David Letterman in 1981. At 03:28, Blanc described how Porky Pig’s voice came to be – he went to a pig farm and listened.

A kilowatt hour is the distance a kilowatt can travel in 60 minutes and it’s faster than a cheetah. (Okay, it’s not, but it is because I just said it is.)

From the Hoodathunkit Dept.: 47 year-old Filipino man was rescued after living three years in a coconut palm. His body was covered in blisters and insect bites, suffers from muscle atrophy and his spine became deformed after so much time spent crouching in the tree. He exhibits symptoms of psychosis, including delusions, hallucinations and paranoia.

Apple Logos Drawn From Memory

Wednesday, 18 October 2017

Only 20% of the 156 submissions for the survey came close. I’d have been in the 3% of those who drew the logo as the rainbow-striped version retired in 1998 unless I submitted something vaguely scatological for snark. Good thing they didn’t ask me.
