Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

OH man, dream songs and dream ideas and secret words and poetry and all that are just like that for me always - absolutely real and coherent and natural one moment, but the minute you're awake, or close to awake, they're gone without so much as a hint. I dreamed once that a bunch of R&B/soul mas...

Re: QUILTBAG

Was the only teacher to put a hand on my shoulder and tell me that everything was going to be alright when my repeated class cutting and scams all came crashing down (fake parent notes, fake doctor notes) and I was sent into the administration meat-grinder. Was about 1 micro-meter from suicide, wil...

Jake has a habit of using the router plug as a step stool to get up on the spare bed in Buge's old room. It knocks out the internet if it's not plugged in all the way.

Re: Bogus, batshit, banal, bizarre, or bicubic: Assorted News

Not going to link to the New York Times, but it turns out that in RFK Jr's case, "brainworms" is not a figure of speech. The dude literally had part of his brain eaten by a parasite. And in case that wasn't on-the-nose enough, apparently the "thimerosol causes autism" guy also h...

Re: In the Land of Wonderful Dreams

I didn't want to wake up this morning because I was having a great brobdingnagian sad dream about how one of my favourite childhood stars, in the dream represented by a mix of Selena Gomez, Andre 3000, and Jack Black, was trying to get his dreamy love song into the top 40 but it kept being ousted by...

You could do worse than raise kids on a steady diet of Star Trek jokes, strong female role models, respect for the NBA team composition rules, and other animals showing humans how to live our best life.

Re: #Tell Friday

If you waggle your head from side to side, your eyes can reconstitute your surroundings better through the raindrops/snow/mud splash/fog, using the same calcs that insects use when they see things through compound eyes.

It won't be fun or comfortable, but you'll be alive.

Re: GOP Will Shit Itself
