Save yourselves!

That’s the punchline they should have used. I mean, how could you miss it? The question, naturally, is where the chocolate bunnies fit into this.

Cyanide & Happiness is, as one might guess from the title (or the episode here,) a rather warped daily webcomic created by three artists – Kris Wilson, Dave McElfatrick, [...]

More true than true

I am contrite over not posting much (and the complaints are pouring in,) but between several projects, bid sinuses, and no motivation to write, those last two largely being related, I just haven’t been able to get anything out. I have a few things in draft form, just not too close at the moment.

Everything’s shiny

Came across this, courtesy of artist Otis Frampton, and had to share. He has more, but this is clearly the best.

If you don’t get it, then you’re… how shall I say this politely? Your kind don’t belong around here.

Ah, who am I trying [...]

Ze cuttlefish

Chances are you’ve seen some example of zefrank’s work if you know what the internet is, but just in case, I’ll go ahead and promote him a little more. He featured one of my favorite genera, cuttlefish, in one of his informative “True Facts” videos, and by “true” we mean more true than, “Based [...]

Yeah, I, um…

So, recently a friend mentioned something about a polar vortex, and it was in the middle of an e-mail exchange that dealt significantly with hexagons. I really don’t pay too much attention to news, TV, or weather reports, and did not know at all that this term applied to the notorious weather we’re having [...]

Big cats and the holidays

Ha! I scooped Jerry Coyne on this one (unless he posts in the next few minutes.)

What hump?

Today marks the day we’ve all been waiting for, and by “we” I mean those of us in the northern hemisphere who don’t like the axial tilt of the planet. Yes, today is the day the days no longer day get shorter; from here on out the days will be getting longer. No, that’s [...]

Odd memories, part 12

Spurred on by this post from The Bloggess, who is a delightfully warped person, I dredged up some memories of christmases past. Part of the reason I don’t put a lot of effort into holidays is not, as some clueless people seem to think, from being an atheist, but from growing up in my [...]

Stupid atheists

Jon Rosenberg at Scenes From A Multiverse is picking at scabs (click for complete version): This… is totes uncalled for! Atheists are level-headed, fair, well-adjusted individuals, and none of them would ever get cranky because a favorite whipping boy turned respectable.

Good thing he hasn’t, then…

Actually, and it’s stupid that I even have [...]

Author Review: Gerald Durrell

A few years ago, I would have skipped doing any reviews of this nature, because the books I refer to had a limited run from American publishers and are nearly all out of print now; some of them never actually had a US publication, since the author is British and they were primarily published [...]
