I saw this quote today and almost spit coffee from laughing so hard:

"Limbaugh has turned out to be the biggest phony of all of them, all of them. Rush Limbaugh is a fraud. When he was accused of the drug usage, I supported him. But that man is a one-way street. It's all about him. He's in it for nobody but himself."

-- conservative radio host Michael Savage

Nothing I can say can add to this really. It's ... well, I was going to say it's like watching two things you really hate starting to destroy one another, but it's not like that at all ... it is that exactly!

I recently ran across a reference to programming as a sedate and quiet activity. Sedate, I'll grant them ... unless it's full body contact programming!

The text was actually in a GURPS rulebook. It was in a section on a skill (Autohypnosis) that allows a character to put themselves in a bit of a trance that grants them a bonus to a mental activity at the cost of a penalty to other skills (or to even notice distractions.) Fine and dandy, heck I'd even consider it a fairly realistic skill! Then there's this bit of text ..." This must be a relatively sedate one, done in a quiet place (library, lab, monastery, or placid wilderness)."

And now for a short musical interlude ... )

Halloween's over, it's time to take down the scary decorations. So why am I still seeing McCain signs? Those are just Halloween decorations, right? (They sure scare me, anyway.)

I have no idea what made me think of this, but it's too weird not to share.

Bob would usually wait until the last minute to go out looking for holiday gifts ... quite literally. He'd often end up searching along the highway for things to give his family on the theory that he had once found a hat that wasn't too badly damaged. This caused his family no small amount of concern, not only out of concern for Bob, but also out of the strain of trying to look happy having received a gift of a semi-smashed beer can or half a raccoon.
