Put Your Nose In the Air Like You Just Don’t Care

Monday, September 22, 2014 8:00 am

A new survey lists San Francisco as “America’s Snobbiest City”, with Washington DC a close second.

That would explain Nancy Pelosi’s nose: all those ceiling fan accidents.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson: A Made-Up Poem

Monday, September 22, 2014 7:00 am

[High Praise! to Oppo]

Neil deGrasse Tyson
Wrestled a bison
And as “Mike” scored a T.K.O.
Invented ricin,
Sold a vacuum to Dyson,
Double-dated with Manti Te’o.

The Obsolete Man

Sunday, September 21, 2014 8:00 pm

A company has created a robot that can make 360 burgers an hour – start to finish – completely replacing a fast-food worker.

Yes, but can it give a bored, insincere “have a nice day” afterward?

I Had That One Last Night

Sunday, September 21, 2014 12:00 pm

President Obama called the conflict in Ukraine a “moment of testing” for the United States.

Except with Obama in charge, it’s like that dream where you get to the test and realize you forgot your pants.

Combining 3 Wasteful Government Programs Into a Single Ultra-Wasteful One!

Saturday, September 20, 2014 10:00 pm

From Anonymiss of Nuking Politics [High Praise!]

An insurance company is giving away free government cell phones, and even includes instructions in Spanish on the back of the letter.

Yes, it’s a real thing:

What would you call this? OPhoCareNesty?

A Practical Observation

Saturday, September 20, 2014 8:00 pm

President Obama said he supported a policy of making ISIS into a “manageable problem”.

For the record, I’d just like to point out that a hole in the ground is pretty low-maintenance.

Firefly Fan Film – “THE VERSE”

Saturday, September 20, 2014 3:00 pm

Lower your expectations, it’s just a fan-film.

Basically, same universe, different ship, different characters.

Still, the tone and the attitude of the script are right, plus the music and lighting are perfect. The dialogue and acting are a little try-hard, though, which steps on the immersion a bit.

But until Whedon gives us a Firefly prequel, this’ll have to do. Popcorn instead of an evening at Olive Garden, but tasty enough if your mouth is bored.

Space Race Redux

Saturday, September 20, 2014 12:00 pm

President Vladimir Putin ordered construction sped up on a multi-billion-dollar spaceport in Russia.

In response, Obama has boosted NASA’s budget so much that they no longer have to re-use coffee filters in the break room.

John Kerry said we need to put together “a coalition of countries” to defeat ISIS in Iraq.

Great idea. Now for the tricky part: convincing Obama the US should be one of the countries.

Sprint has introduced a cellphone that’s aimed at kids as young as 5.

Great. So now when you tell them to go play outside, they ask “which app is that?”
