Ummm... Other?

SOMETHING WE CAN ALL HATE THE UN FOR

IT USUALLY DOESN'T START UNTIL WINTER, BUT AT SOME POINT EVERY YEAR I START LOOKING AT NWS WEATHER ALERTS AND AM AMUSED TO FIND THAT THEY'RE ALWAYS IN ALL CAPS, WHICH INCREASES THE IMPRESSION THAT THERE'S SOMETHING ALARMING GOING ON (THIS TIME THE EVENT IS, OF COURSE, HURRICANE SANDY, WHICH IS APPARENTLY WORTH BEING ALARMED ABOUT: "I've never seen anything like this and I'm at a loss for expletives to describe what this storm could do.").

KEVIN DRUM SAYS THE REASON FOR THE ALL CAPS IS DUE TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS, BUT IT COULD CHANGE.

OMG the Yelpers!

It's true! It's all true!

Why Aren't We Competing?

The race itself involves two-person teams -- usually husband and wife -- with the husband carrying the wife as she drapes herself over his shoulders.

Racers on the 260-yard course start running up a hill, cross a timber hurdle, wade through a mud-water pit, climb over a big pile of sand and then bolt for the finish line.

The Scandinavians come up with the best ideas! They've got the Viking competitions and now this.

Fnord12 carries me all of the time. We could've been a contender!
