Pi Day is over. Today is the anniversary of the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. To the best of my knowledge, Caesars Palace is not planning any memorial events. A friend has suggested not celebrating with a salad. In Closing: three political cartoons (render unto Caesar, eh?); oops, turns out the samples from Lake Vostok [...]
So I have some open tabs that I’ve been saving for a discussion on employment, unemployment, and job creation. Luckily for me, job creation and unemployment numbers came out today. Unemployment does continue to go down, and it looks like we [barely] create enough jobs to keep up with demand. However, many of those new [...]
I like bacon as much as the next omnivore. And I like bourbon. I just don’t think I want to consume them at the same time.
I’m blaming Busted Knuckles for invoking his name in comments: In Closing: effing candyman; maybe a clue why is in the previous post’s comments?; follow up; more follow up (attackers knew irony?); Military wants to save you $3,000,000,000 but Congress won’t let them; sorry Wendy, when you serve burgers in paper wrappers on plastic trays, you [...]

Or, Caturday, Film Festival Edition Ok, I like cats well enough. I even have a cat. Sure, I occasionally look at pictures of cats online, with or without witty catpions (intentional misspelling). I’ve been sucked in by video of Maru the Box Cat at least once. I have posted about Stationmaster Tama and library cats. IBKC [...]
I suspect that this item from Comic-Con is inspired by this little song: In Closing: oh Tyler; how ethical failures happen; what?; and who would define “exotic“?
Once upon a time, there was a divine, weaving princess. She spent much time weaving, and was sad that it left her no time for love. So her father arranged for her to meet the cow-herder of the stars. They immediately fell in love and spent all their time together. However, this meant the divine [...]
So here’s my iPhone. It’s ok. It’s way too easy to take a screenshot, unless of course you want to take one. As you can see, just by looking at the main screen, I can tell what time it is, how much signal I’ve got, battery life, unread emails, even how many items are on my [...]
