In Texas, a teenager managed to secretly live behind a stack of boxes for 3 days inside a Walmart.

I’m surprised Obama doesn’t grant him amnesty and declare him an employee.

The Department of Education released a fact sheet which stated that illegal immigrant minors are “entitled to” a public education.

Ok, then start with a civics lesson – lawbreakers don’t get to stay.

So who exactly is the red dye numbering authority?

“They’re grrrrrreat! By the way, I’m not a tiger.”

1st book in the Game of Thrones series turned old enough to vote this month. It’ll be collecting social security before series is finished.

I’m just kidding; there won’t be any social security left for anyone by then.

Way things are going with all of Obama’s touted accomplishments, Osama bin Laden soon going to come out of the sea even aliver than before.

But who explains to the explainers?

So how scared should we be of problems with Russia? We took away their nukes when we won the Cold War, right?

Hillary: “Having thought on Ferguson for three weeks, I would like to say that bad things are bad and good things are good.”

I’ve never been a president of the United States before, but aren’t strategies for dealing with America’s enemies like job number one?

The president’s press conference cut to black at the end and it’s up to the viewer to decide whether or not he had a strategy.

So was the idea behind Vox that Media Matters needed more graphs?

It’s Obama’s directionless leadership that makes America’s enemies feel free to say things like, “Hello Kitty isn’t a cat.”

Gah! 5 Guys forgot my bacon again! I swear they forget more than they remember.

“5 Guys Who Can Never Remember the Bacon” they should be called.

I did it. Reported that 5 Guys. You forget my bacon a half dozen times, that’s it. Would have reported sooner except everyone there so nice.

I am not cool. I have never been cool. And I have no desire to be cool. That’s what makes me cool.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs seemed more an interactive story than a game. Nothing in it amounted to a challenge.

A few things in it seemed meant to be puzzles, but the solutions were all straightforward and required no searching or thought.

I was quite interested in the story, though, so I wasn’t bored by it.

Dear Esther was also interesting, but even much less a game than Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs.

Which isn’t to say things have to be games – just I was expecting a game with the Amnesia sequel and that wasn’t what it was.

UN Security Council plans to send a “strongly-worded” letter to ISIS insurgents in Iraq.

That’s a good plan. It’s written in exploding ink, right?

You can find the long version by watching this rambly, chatty video, or I can just boil it down for you into the money quote at 3:07

“That’s my advice for navigating the treacherous waters of life after school. Find someone who’s doing something you want to do, better than you can do it, and listen to them.”

This serves no purpose, other than to be a not-dull way to pass 3 minutes. I guess the best way to describe it is “Gilliamesque“.

If you want a political metaphor, I guess I’d say this is the land of “Obamacare Works”.

Feel free to turn the sound down or off if it gets on your nerves. It’s all about the visuals.

And be cautious about viewing other items on this guy’s channel… depending on where you draw the line between unpredictable and unsettling, he can get pretty creepy.

Now on the internet – a photo of President Obama dancing at a party on Martha’s Vineyard.

Fiddle must’ve been in the shop.

A pioneering new treatment is being tested that would allow a simple injection to aid the recovery of hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients.

Useful for people who’ve seen their new insurance premiums under Obamacare.

Dropbox is now giving me 5 times as much space for 40% less in price. Yay competition!

Until upload speeds are much higher, it’s pretty hard to switch cloud drives when you have a lot of files, though.

I notice Apple isn’t even trying to compete on cloud pricing. 55GB for $100 year – can’t see anyone but biggest Apple loyalists pay that.

Ah, the free market. We’re constantly getting better products for cheaper prices while everyone else is waiting in line for bread.

The rich keep getting richer, and all we get in exchange are these boundless luxuries at constantly lowering prices.

So what percentage of gun deaths are children firing fully automatic weapons?

You can’t assert the genders in marriage are arbitrary but the numbers involved is somehow sacrosanct.

I’m kinda digging Vox as performance art.

David Chase told me they had Tony get shot between the eyes, but camera went dead and they couldn’t reset it.

I actually only watched through season 3 of Sopranos. I guess by missing the finale I literally missed nothing.

I wish Lost had just cut to black for its entire final episode.

I have to hand it to Vox: I’ve never seen clownish nonsense presented in such an aesthetically pleasing manner.

A fun thing to do if I was a political candidate would be to never be seen without an owl on my shoulder and never answer questions about it.

The best way for the NYTimes editorial board to explain any of their political decisions would be with three words: “We’re soulless hacks.”

Hello Kitty. Goodbye Sanity.

“Hello Kitty is people! It’s made out of people! Tell the world!”
