Happy Cuttlefish

Today, I find myself thinking fondly of the good people at Barone Graphics and Design. Can you figure out why?

    I have a challenge for you, for great social justice!

    There are a lot of folks talking about how popular concepts of “mental illness” are being abused whenever cases like the mass shooting of this morning happen.



    In fact, someone in the media interview a neighbor of the shooter who said:

    “He was kind of a loner and shy. He didn’t look you in the eye,” she said.

    It just struck me that you could do this common miscarriage, that inevitably causes more damage than good, a decent cuttlefish style treatment.

    sorry, I just have seen so many times that you seem to really grasp the nuance of situations just like this, and inevitably come up with something memorable.

    uh, no pressure.

    Ok, I’ve tried.

    Currently on the main page, your site seems to be mirroring Pharyngula’s banner (I’ve checked in twice today and each time your blog is headed by the same banner as Pharyngula – but when you hold your mouse over the image it still shows the link for your site). This is in Firefox. Thought you might like to know. However your images are showing once I click into your particular blog – just not on the main page.

    I know! You changed the color of your banner and then Barone D&G changed the runes therein. Despite all the cleverness, I wasn’t fooled for a moment. Just half of a moment but that doesn’t count.

    Six different designs, CW! The Barone people made them all for me at the very beginnings of FtB, but it was not until a couple of days ago that the software allowed them to randomize. Yay, waiting!

    Ahh, I see. PZ is staying at your house! I trust he brought some mollusks and large eyed denizens of the deep with him?

    Though you are getting PZ’s banners instead of your own on the main FtB page.

    I’m happy to see you have your proper banner back in place on the FTB home page. Now the balance is restored and all is well.

    PZ’s shade must have fled back to his own cold lair beneath the waves. I do hope that it left you one of these: http://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/files/2012/12/babysquid.jpg
