The hideousness of what we’re doing to ourselves is really on a spectacular scale.

Some quick reading about the gyre:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Pacific_Gyre

Glass or metal containers, please.

acapella rules:

it’s done by the Carleton Singing Knights.

wicked farce/satire:

the onion strikes again:


the players in the NBA have little over your average taiwanese arcade junkie:

…just like the top stars of soccer have nothing on burma’s chinlone players:

it’s a bit pedantic, but makes a good point: not everything you think is an ad hominem attack (is an ad hominem attack):


I have 2 dogs and I was buying a large bag of <common brand> dog food at <big store> and was in line to check out.

A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The <common brand of dog food> Diet again, although I probably shouldn’t because I’d ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pockets with Winalot nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story.

Horrified, she asked if I’d ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no; it was because I’d been sitting in the street licking my balls and a car hit me.

is this a book review or a personal ad?


Sumatriptan causes sulfhemoglobin, suspects Dr. Alana Flexman of St. Paul’s hospital in Vancouver.

(As reported in this submission to The Lancet.)
