Looks like the Cats of Vegas are expecting a cold winter.
Ok, I couldn’t leave you with that for the day. Here’s some Brave Combo:
One of the strangest bits of Christmas music ever recorded. The Residents:
I hope the people who doctored up that video to make it seem like Planned Parenthood sells parts of “dead babies” for profit are really proud of themselves. They goaded a crazy guy into killing multiple actually born people, including a cop. Worse than that? A pro-life cop. And a mom of two. And an Iraq war veteran.
And all you people who think this was in any way justified? How dare you call yourselves Pro LIFE.
There’s a word for enforcing your opinions with violence: terrorism. Don’t blame me; blame the dictionary.
In Closing: Yeah, suuuuure the NSA is going to stop collecting your phone records, just like they “stopped” collecting e-mail metadata. As usual, if comments get out of hand they get closed. Threats will be reported to the authorities.
I like those moments where I reach my edge. Those moments prove I am working to the best of my ability. They show me where my edge actually is. And most importantly, I will never stretch beyond the edge if I never get there in the first place.
In Closing: a few last Paris items; maybe you didn’t notice that you’re paying over twice as much; last century’s refugees; and the sane Republican candidate seems to be throwing up his hands in disgust as other candidates spew easily refuted nonsense.

Happy Thanksgiving, all.

Google Easter Egg: check out what happens when you search for “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.”
The NSA: I guess nobody noticed they had their fingers crossed behind their backs. I wonder what, if anything, can stop them from thumbing their nose at the 4th and 5th Amendments.
Stop! Thief!: Civil forfeitures now exceed losses from burglaries.
Opt Out: Massachusetts has decided they don’t want Common Core. Not because they can’t live up to it, but because they believe what they already implemented was better.
The Whole Country: “Russian sailor drank half a litre of rum before crashing 7,000-ton ship full speed into Scotland.” Some headlines are better than others.
