THE REAL HORROR?
This is not a Halloween prop. Photographer Nick Brandt has documented the effect that a highly acidic lake has on the animals that come to rest there. He has published a book with photos and the story. Amazing.
YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE IS HORRIFYING? Finding yourself in the middle of this. Because, for reals, been there. Nobody ever once, in any schooling I had enjoyed up to that point in my life had ever even hinted that this kind of stuff happened. We were camping. Sleeping on the ground in sleeping bags. I just leave you with that.
THERE ARE LOW LIFE SCUMBAGS…and then there are these guys. Nice contribution to society you’ve made there. Ugh.
BAD ASS HISTORICAL FIGURE OF THE DAY: This guy. Right here. Wow.
NO RESPECT: Seriously, this is pretty lame right here.
THIS IS WHERE WE ARE NOW: It all started with Sony Walkmen. That’s when we started closing ourselves off from the rest of the world. 30+ years later, we barely acknowledge the world around us as we make our way through the world with our gadgets and gizmos. So that this can happen.
OOPS: I’m not really sure what the worst part of this story is.
THE SCARF – 2013:
IS IT WRONG…that I find so much amusement in this? That is rhetorical, by the way. So, zip it.
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? I have nothing against the Windy City or unicycles*, but...
CONSEQUENCES: There is a whole lot of sphincter tightening going on right about now. Somewhere. That is not here. Just saying.
BORIS INSISTED THAT THE TODDLER PEDAL FOR HIS AFFECTION:
Nice leather, Boris.
RABBIT HOLES: Sometimes I fall all the way down to the bottom. For the record, we used to call it “junkin” and it’s where most of my late high school/college wardrobe came from.
ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE ITEM OF THE DAY: You’re gonna need one of these. Vroom vroom vroom!
SOMETIMES…I mostly hate people. This would be just the latest reason why. And hey, I said sometimes.
GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT!?
GAAAAAAH: I so did NOT need to know this.
THE EXTREME GENERATION: How does this ever sound like a good idea? I have no words.
DEATH WATCH: I’m giving this the stink-eye. This much cynicism in one place is unseemly. Oh, and I heard that. I am unable to locate this stick you are referencing.
POE: As in Edgar Allen. He helped create horror fiction (along with HP Lovecraft). He was an inspiration for the character Sherlock Holmes. He never gets old.
Three rings going on up in there. That’s how I see it.

- Seasons have changed. Are you finding out that your clothes need changing in their own way?
- This. Also, we need a version for gum. Just sayin’.
- Because there is no rule that says you always have to wear a tie.
