I REALLY need to publish 30 Days of Eris.

I'd like my placebo effect to be woo-free, please.

Passing by a TV in the airport (ps-- I'm in Montana again for the weekend), I heard that ISIS sleeper cells were "almost certainly" already in the country, even though there is no evidence suggesting anything of the sort.

I mean, in the buildup to Iraq One, I honestly had fears that there were terrorists in the country, just waiting for Hussein's signal. But then again, I was eighteen goddamn years old, and didn't know shit about world politics. But to think, I could have skipped college and immediately become a Fox News pundit.

But back to OP: is there an implication in there that merely TALKING about counter terrorism increases the chances of an attack? I'm being facetious of course, but that appears to be the logic they're using.

Isn't that where we are?

Unfortunately, the article doesn't say.  But I just found it interesting that when testing is implepented, there's a possible correlation to hiring more african american people.

She's there when you laugh at another's misfortune.

So, the dickbag Eris.

Right action, wrong target.

This means when I drink a Sloe Gin Fizz, I honor the Goddess.


Which makes sense, considering what happens when I drink a lot of Sloe Gin.

Also, today must be link day, because this is awesome:

This is so wonderful.

In PTown, a couple bought a house overlooking the beach, just off Commercial St, then complained to the local council about the noise.

Keep in mind that Commercial St is the ONLY strip in town, filled with bars, clubs, Restaraunts, and more UNTZ UNTZ than you can handle sober.

They were laughed out of the room.

I enjoy how the picture is like a self-reflexive definition of the term.

I'm not entirely sure how to react to this:

A nine year-old girl in the US has killed her shooting instructor by accident while being shown how to use a high-powered automatic weapon.

The instructor was giving the girl a lesson at a shooting range in Arizona when the recoil from the first shot caused her to lose control of the Uzi.

Charles Vacca, 39, was shot in the head and died after being airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas.

Kinda fucked up. Then I saw the "Arizona" and it all made horrible sense.

I have a friend on FB who's got a rather dark sense of humor.  His most recent posts were suggested bumper stickers:

GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE. MY 9-YEAR-OLD KILLS PEOPLE.

ASK ME ABOUT MY GRANDCHILDREN'S CONFIRMED KILLS.

MY CHILD TOOK OUT A ROW OF HONOR STUDENTS AT LYNETTE FROMME INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL.



Is "cringelaugh" a thing?

I figured you had actually sourced that answer.  Sounded plenty legit.

I just read a fascinating article about academic urban legends (courtesy SlateStar Codex), which involved a myth about spinach and iron, and that its mythlogy is itself a myth.

It has to be one of the more entertaining articles regarding citations that I've ever read.
