Please Stop Asking Society to Accommodate Your Mental Disorders, As It Is Both Inconvenient and Annoying

Trending upward. The number of people who believe there’s a third gender.

OK… and a lot of people believe Hillary should’ve won, but that’s no reason to call her “Madame President”.

Cartoon of the Day – Repeal


[Mike Lester – GoComics]

If the GOP wanted to repeal Obamacare, they would. But, I realized a while back they weren’t serious. That’s when I first began considering joining the Libertarian Party.

Sunday Night Open Thread

A while back — a week or so ago — I shared a video of some free software programs. Some of you had additional suggestions.

Well, the TechGumbo folks have five more. I found it interesting. Maybe you will too.

[The YouTube]

You know what else is free? This blog. Well, it’s free to you. Frank J. foots the bills. Harvey does most of the work. I show up every so often and say “Hey, guys, why don’t you write something?”

This is me asking just that. It’s Sunday Night Open Thread, and it’s your turn to share a link, a joke, a … anything.

Like Crazy Wavy Shadow Puppets

[Seeing the Invisible: Schlieren Imaging in SLOW MOTION] (Viewer #828,417)

The pacing is horrible on this one. He’s overestimated how engaging the images are, and lingers on them far longer than necessary. It’s like the “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” of informational videos.

Nevertheless, parts of it were quite interesting, and I survived the 6 minutes without jumping ahead. Just try to relax and enjoy the pretty pictures

Saturday Night Open Thread

When I write these little thingies, I sometimes decide to boldly split infinitives that have never been split before.

But that’s apparently okay.

[The YouTube]

Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I shall not put.

But, since it’s your turn, you can go crazy. Share whatever comes to mind, any way you want. After all, it’s Saturday Night Open Thread.

Now He Just Needs a Weber Grill and an Apron

[Primitive Technology: Reusable charcoal mound] (Viewer #3,923,164)

I’m still not sure what use charcoal is in the jungle, but the description assures me “Charcoal is a valuable fuel that reaches a higher temperature than the very wood it’s made from,” so I’ll just take his word for it that it’s worth all this fuss and bother.

By the way, I recommend either hitting the CC button to turn on subtitles, or reading the description under the video at the link, because it’s otherwise not always obvious what he’s doing or why.

New proposal for near-bankrupt Illinois: dissolve it and divide its territory among the surrounding states: Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri and Kentucky.

Sounds ok, but speaking for Wisconsin, can we maybe give Chicago to Mexico?
