No, Really, He Looks Like One

In the comments to my post about Goat Simulater, Iowa Jim [High Praise!] said:

“I’m tempted by the possibility of being a goat, unlike Paul Krugman, who just looks like one (Hat tip: Frank J)”

Which is a reference to Frank’s post about How to Stop Secrets From Leaking, wherein he said:

“When the leaker brings the documents to the New York Times, then you grab him because you secretly shipped everyone there to Gitmo and replaced them with doubles (Paul Krugman is a goat in a suit)”

Oddly, when you search “Paul Krugman Goat” in Google Images, nothing comes up. Nevertheless, here’s the proof if you need it.

John Boehner commented on President Obama’s inattention to Iraq, saying “now what’s the president doing? Taking a nap!”

No… he’s letting the country we freed be put to sleep.

Link of the Day: Could This Be the Greatest Video Game Ever? No.

Rock Simulator 2014

Probably never get past the parody stage, but it’s fun to talk about. My favorite comment from the forum discussion:

I know this is still a development build, but I’m rather concerned about the obvious lack of rocks of color in your game. Far too often games will only represent one, usually granite, and if there is more than one, they’re stereotyped in the worst ways (Igneous is found in other places than just volcanoes, devs!). I’m not asking you or any of your expansive team to end rockism. All I ask is that rocks of all types have a chance at equal representation in video games. I don’t think that’s too much to ask, but here we are.

Might As Well, at This Point

A trade group sued the city of Seattle seeking to block a hike in the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

So… if the case goes all the way to the Supreme Court, will John Roberts declare wages taxes?

Let Your Right Brain Run Free

Adam Bellow, one of the creators of Liberty Island, has the cover story in the latest issue of National Review talking about the case for a counterculture revolution (which I get to be a part of by getting my novel published).

BTW, still pushing for the first goal in Liberty Island’s PubSlush campaign. Give and get a reward if you haven’t yet, and pass on to anyone you think might be interested. And the cover image is currently being worked on for my novel, Superego. Can’t wait to see it and share it with you. It better be awesome, because the novel is awesome. Because I wrote it.
