Heh.

Obama may run for US Congress.

CNN spared Alabama from Hurricane Dorian. [via]

Efficiency BBQ.  (Back in the day, we used stolen hubcaps.)

Racist declares, “White Athletes Should Leave Black Colleges.
Oh wait.

The Midnight Sun aired November 1961. Watch in full screen mode.

Bull Doze Blues” Henry Thomas 1928. Sounds kinda familiar, ya?


The Warm List was last updated in 2012.

Footnote (September 2015) Why the list stopped growing.
The time it takes to process a new entry increases approximately with the square of the list length, after checking for duplications, spoofs etc. Starting it was based on the naïve assumption that the rate of appearances would decline as opposing evidence accumulated, but the reverse happened. That’s the difference between science and religion. […] There have since been hundreds more claims of an increasingly ludicrous nature.

And The Warm List compiler was right.


Listen to this [via].

At 0:38, “Teacher” Martha Readyoff actually asked Bernie Sanders, “Educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address Climate Catastrophe?

Look how CNN rephrased her question:

Bernie responded “YES.” Anyone else smell eugenics? I do.

Pheeew.


I decided to close down our CafePress store. Six months ago there was a security breach and I was just notified today via snail mail!

Bunkessa found a cutworm and was nice enough to share it. My JASC program doesn’t allow me to combine them all without an incredible amount of cut-and-paste tedium, so we’ll settle for this combination of mirrored and flipped .gifs. The animation has not been sped up, that’s real time. Enjoy!

Puppies are born with incomplete digestive systems.  They aren’t able to completely digest everything that passes through their digestive tracts.  Therefore they recycle, and pet owners can’t stand to watch that kind of natural recycling.

The Associated Press, Reuters, MSN and CNN and a couple of other media sources that come to mind are kinda like that, too, but they are not puppies and so far there are no products available to prevent them from recycling their own crap.

[Real product advert from here. I don’t know what’s worse, that or this.]
