Yes, apparently you have to push the button to legally walk down the sidewalk here. It’s been driving me nuts all semester. In Closing: oh come now, we can all use more NSA and privacy links, particularly when it’s starting to garner international outrage; speaking of international laws, looks like America doesn’t care about them too [...]
Ok. Can somebody please explain to me why exactly I might want a “Duck Dynasty Free Android App”?
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 [...]

It is returning to the carry out restaurant world from which it came first. Einstein Bros [...]
Japanfilter: Mt Fuji is at risk of eruption. Expect Republicans to call for NASA spending cuts in 3…2…1….: NASA explains the last decade. A few items on Employment, Unemployment, and Job Growth: Why have millions of Americans given up looking for work? Why mostly young people? How many jobs do we need to create each month to keep [...]
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“?
