How To Die Alone

Hope he doesn’t pass any schools on the way back to mom’s basement…


Oh, come on, Amazon,

Don’t you think this is getting out of hand?

Dear ‘Miss Liberty’,

Strike that, reverse it:

“All this is told first-hand, from the perspective of Eli Steele, one of the round pegs that doesn’t fit into the square holes that the Left insists he choose from.”

So close.


Governer High-Speed-Train-To-Nowhere has signed the bill requiring companies headquartered in California to identify at least one self-identified woman on their boards by the end of 2019, and around a third of the total by the end of 2021.


“For purposes of this subdivision, a female director having held a seat for at least a portion of the year shall not be a violation.”

“​‘Female’ means an individual who self-identifies her gender as a woman, without regard to the individual’s designated sex at birth.”

In other words, you can still have a board composed entirely of straight white men, as long as ~1/3 of them claim otherwise at least one day a year. Not necessarily the same day, although that might make it easier to prove compliance.

No word yet on dragonkin quotas or cyborg tokenism.


Damn, I suddenly realized I should have titled this “Bitter Klingers”…

Spaghetti with classmeat

The real WTF is that it comes with a cabbage-broccoli salad.


[for the kana-deprived, the menu item is for “spaghetti meat sauce”, served with one of: beef, pork, ham, or classmate]

“What is that?”

“It’s priest, have a little priest.”

“Is it really good?”

“Sir, it’s too good, at least.”


Dear Amazon,

If I were a British TV producer, I’d feel insulted…

Dear Amazon,

You had a good run of making interesting TV series. You can stop now. The Three Body Problem (aka China’s Battlefield Earth) is not worth your time or money.

Unless you adapt it about as faithfully as, say, Starship Troopers. That would work.

Like a drill through butter?

At first glance, this item looks like it would be nice to have when your butter’s cold and your toast is hot:

But then I read the detailed description…

“It is a thing of beauty, and easy to use at home, as long as you have a drill.”

Also, most of the ones offered on Amazon by randomly-named companies (seriously, “Dhrbsx”?!?) are rather pricier than where I originally saw it, Lee Valley Tools.
