A Glorious Dawn

Carl Sagan, when autotuned, sounds slightly more like Kermit the Frog than usual, but this was still inspired and beautiful. Also features Stephen Hawking. By the by, laptop speakers do not do this song justice.

A train wreck in EXTREMELY SLOW MOTION

(Fair warning: N-bombs and other such not-safe-for-work-without-earphones ridiculousness) The pride of the South expounds upon the “gayness” of your President, over the banning of flavored chaw. A few questions are brought to mind immediately: Is that a carton of eggs on his stove? How drunk is this guy? Do these people really exist? Is he …

Glenn Beck won’t stand behind his own statements

And yet, neither will he explain them, or disown them. “What is White Culture? I don’t know how to answer that, that isn’t a trap.” You insipid asshole. You can’t even own up to the inherent racism of your statement, and the only answers you have to the question, are “traps”, because THE STATEMENT IS …

“Canadian Health Care, Even With Queues, Bests U.S.”

Well don’t that beat all. “There is an image of Canadians flooding across the border to get care,” said Donald Berwick, a Harvard University health- policy specialist and pediatrician who heads the Boston-based nonprofit Institute for Healthcare Improvement. “That’s just not the case.

Real-life griefing

I’m going to tell a pretty geeky story, but it has a point, I swear. A few weeks ago, in World of Warcraft, Jodi and I were at about level 18 or so, and were questing in one of the newbie areas’ hub cities, The Crossroads. In WoW, a city is basically just an area …

Have your pets heard the good news about Jeshua Cottontail?
