What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Friday, November 28, 2014 4:00 pm

President Obama is pressing the FCC to regulate broadband internet like a utility so that it “works for everyone”.

Although, due to Obamacare, it’ll only be allowed to work 29 hours a week.

Halfway Decent Shot From SNL

Thursday, November 27, 2014 3:00 pm

They were going pretty good there for a while, but the ending was surprisingly weak – like they just got tired of writing the sketch and grabbed the first closing line they could think of so they could move on to the rest of the show.

Still, it lacked their usual “let’s take a shot at Republicans to keep the skit balanced” angle, so I enjoyed it for that.

Oh, and you’ll need to know Schoolhouse Rock’s “I’m Just a Bill” in order to find any enjoyment in watching this at all.

Let It Go, Bruce

I’m not an expert on the exact source or nature of the rivalry between Batman & Superman, so comic-booky types can feel free to elaborate in the comments, but I suspect Bruce resents Clark because Bruce had to invent everything that gives him the power to fight crime, while Clark was born indestructable and able to fly. And is annoyingly smug about it.

Puzzle

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 10:00 am

I was talking recently to a young man who had never had coffee, and he asked me what it tastes like.

I pondered a moment and told him it tastes like suffering.

But this led me to wonder… how *would* you describe the taste of coffee to someone who’s never had it?

I’m thinking “a mixture of grapefruit juice, leather, and dirt”.

Anyone else wanna take a whack at it, please do so in the comments.

UPDATE: Tangentially related, Sheldon Comics is tackling the topic of coffee right now:

A new program lets law enforcement officials nationwide now have the ability to search multiple sensitive databases – including spy agency intranets and homeland security suspicious activity reporting – with a single login.

However, they’re still not allowed to ask illegals about their immigration status.
