This is just in case any of you out there aren’t getting enough zinc.

I am so amused. Perfect.

Forensic Scientists Create The Face Of Crystal Skull Vodka

Forensic artists can’t come across a skull, or skull shaped decanter, without wondering what that person’s fleshy face looked like when they were among the living, and there’s no better testament to your artistic skills than creating a skull sculpture…

The good thing about science is, current understandings can be wrong, but you can’t just twist it to mean anything you want like you can with most religious and New Age thinking. That’s why it’s science and not metaphysical hoo-hah.

Throwback to when a woman—not her boss—had the right to make her own health care decisions.

Because why not?.

Watching a sphinx moth at work in the native flowers outside our front door. They’re huge and very beautiful, and this one seems completely unconcerned by my presence. You can see the extended tongue as it feeds, a little swipe of silver light in the half-darkness.

I think I’d better stay away from the news for the rest of the day. Got my dander up, reading about creepy people and bullies.

I have a lot of friends in Texas. I think most of them would probably agree with me about this. The crazy is THICK among the T-Reps.

In times of moral quandary I ask myself, What Would Aunt Bee Do?

And the answer always is…PIE. Butterscotch Pecan Pie.

Shame for some, Independence Day for others.

A wartime photo of the most deadly and implacable enemy of Radioactive Cat Head Super-Ripped American — Giant Nazi Inflatable Genius Rat and his sinister black-clad troops, the Kleinsäugerpolizei.

Long but enjoyable day of playing with savage rogers. Now animals are fed, family folk are alive, so I will go think inscrutable thoughts for a while. But soon, like Radioactive Cat Head Super-Ripped American of the profile picture, I shall return and plant a goddamn flag right in the ass of boredom for God and Country. This I swear!

You know how in a horror movie, everything people do just makes the Evil worse? How if they try to run, the Evil chases them, and if they try to hide, the Evil finds them, and if they try to fight, the Evil outwits them. Well, that’s exactly what it’s like every time I spend more than a few minutes on Facebook. Except in my case, it’s not the Evil, it’s the Silly.

I just can’t escape it.

A cautionary tale. But — saved by surreptitious undergarmenting!

Life is better in a mangirdle.

I keep thinking this is Sunday. That’s why I’m posting this article. Because it’s a Sunday supplement kind of a thing to read. But it’s not, so never mind. Article’s still worth reading. Very funny guy.

I have pointed out things like this (on both right- and left-wing memes, but quite a bit more often on the right-wing versions) and been told, “It doesn’t matter that he never said it — it’s probably true anyway!” This is why America is becoming more stupid by the minute. Happy 4th.

Abraham Lincoln despised class warfare, Thomas Jefferson detested bailouts and the founders of the nation were all Bible-believing Christians. These are among the historical “facts” you’ll learn…

This is the exact tragedy of modern life: something like this can be so horrible for the individuals concerned, but so amusing to those not directly involved.
