I didn't want to bother anyone by turning my flash on.

The code tweaking rabbit hole

This is basically a corollary to this (which i've linked to before), and both hit disturbingly close to home (especially the alt text on the newer/first one).

More posts about buildings and food

Today is National Pancake Day. As you can see from the comment on that article, there is also a Pancake Day in the spring, but unlike that guy we don't find the idea of a second Pancake Day to be "ridiculous". In the SuperMegaHousehold*, we are willing to celebrate Pancake Day as often as is required.

*This is the "buildings" part of the post, to justify the title. Loved ones, loved ones, visit the building. We'll be eating pancakes, but if you come visit we'll... keep eating pancakes. And you can't have any.

Movies that are not sequels to Watership Down

  • Blackhawk Down, Falling Down, etc.
  • Look Who's Terrifying Children With Violent Rabbit Cartoons Too
  • Night of the Lepus
  • Big Vater: The Kehaar Story
  • Peter Jackson's Nine Hour Adaptation Of Something Richard Adams Wrote In A Notebook Once

Public Service Announcement

For you non-vegans, just a reminder to tie down your eggs today to keep them from floating away.

You apparently have to watch your brooms, too.

Wheel of Pie

This chart comes up in conversations in the SuperMegaHousehold more often than you'd think, and we always spend a little time trying to re-find it. So we're putting it here with a link to the original website for reference.

Modern Farmer Pie Chart

We don't agree with all the decisions, and of course everything needs to be veganized, but it's a good starting point. And a reminder that if you're not eating a pie every month, You're Doing It Wrong.

min: At least a pie a month. You know what's awesome? Freezing unbaked fruit pies so you can have peach pie in January!

I dunno where this person who created the Pie Wheel lives, but where am i supposed to get cherries in September? And what's this apricot pie business? No. We're going to do blueberry pie in May, strawberry (sans rhubarb) in June, and cherry in July. Not sure what i'm supposed to make in September if i have to wait until October for apple. Banana cream? Coconut custard? Cheesecake?

Disabling comments

This blog started off as a way for me and Min to share links and such amongst ourselves and with some friends. As my comics blog grew bigger, people from there started drifting over here (my fault for linking between them) and with that has come an increase in people missing the point, being sea lions, using our posts as platforms to air their own tangentially related grievances, etc.. Which happens on the comics blog too, but it always gets taken more personally when it's about politics. We've considered just taking this blog down entirely, but for now we've decided to just disable comments.

Dutter & Parker's cry for help?

I am sure that Tom DeFalco wasn't involved in kickback schemes, but it's weird how many Bull's Eye cartoons imply otherwise.


Double Eh!

Post Politics Platypus

It didn't work.  Gonna have to disable comments.

I hope this serves as a sufficient lo siento.

I knew it wasn't safe to go looking at political stuff

From Politico: A Clinton administration will be full of Republicans.

From messaging help delivered by Clinton's communications team to direct and regular access to senior staffers and in-person meetings to discuss policy and strategy, Republicans who have abandoned Trump say the Democrat has given every indication that the GOP view will be reflected in her administration.

After she is sworn in, these Republicans say, they expect positions in a Clinton administration that go beyond the one or two seats that are typically reserved for opposition party experts in any White House...

...By embracing Clinton, these Republicans say they've also gained an easy entry point to communicate with the campaign's senior brass on both policy and political tactics. Come 2017, they hope their campaign access translates to a new Clinton administration.

From WaPo: Hillary's first inclination is always war, war, war.

For years, Clinton has blamed Bush for misleading her into voting for the resolution. But an examination by The Washington Post found that her decision was based as much on advice from her husband's advisers as from Bush administration officials. There were also significant gaps in her fact-gathering, most notably her apparent failure to read a classified analysis that other senators cited in voting against the resolution.

Meanwhile, from NYT, the Clinton campaign can't figure out why Millenials and former Bernie supporters are drifting to third parties, and they hilariously think the answer is MOOOOAAAAR SUPERPACS (the rejection of which was the cornerstone of Bernie's campaign):

...leading Democrats have been alarmed by the drift of young voters toward the third-party candidates.

The principal "super PAC" supporting Mrs. Clinton's candidacy, Priorities USA Action, has concluded from its polling and other research that the reluctance to embrace the Democratic nominee among those who intensely dislike Mr. Trump is not going away and must be confronted.

"We'll be launching a multimillion-dollar digital campaign that talks about what's at stake and how a vote for a third-party candidate is a vote for Donald Trump, who is against everything these voters stand for," said Justin Barasky, a strategist for Priorities USA.

Never too late for terrifying Baby DeFalco

I meant to put this up here when i started 1993, but i had trouble re-finding it until now.

Besides, after all this time, i'm still working on January.

I assume there's no special significance in Mark Gruenwald representing 1992.

A *Bionic Space* Bigfoot!

Although i have to be the continuity geek and point out that Steve Austin never wore the track suit in the episodes where he met Bigfoot.

DMCA Takedown notices out of control

This would be pretty hilarious if it didn't also mean that lots of legit websites are also getting targeted.

Asking for a friend

It's legal to murder your neighbor if they hang wind chimes on their patio, right?
