(hydrogen) and (stupidity

Just the two symbols, and see how many people can figure out the subtext.  :D

The things geeks do: a telescope wearing a boxing glove, and an example of "screw lab safety, I want superpowers."

This is hilarious, but also pretty good music.  If you were wondering what bluegrass sounds like in Terramagne, this is a good example of their avant garde stuff.  :D

While searching for something else, I stumbled across this excellent guide to constructing a safe, fun trip on hallucinogens.

By the way, this is a supervillain game show in Terramagne:

Honestly, I would watch a game show where people have to drop acid and perform mundane tasks like buttoning a shirt, refilling an ice cube tray, putting a fitted sheet on a bed, etc.

 For my ace/aro friends, here is a t-shirt with a pile of giant squiggly zucchini.

Yes, someone made acepr0n on a t-shirt.  I am pretty sure they did not know they were doing that.  ;)

Here for the holidays is an updated version of "Santa Baby" with new feminist lyrics.  \o/

 Brexit explained.

More simply, if people don't like how they are treated, they tend to leave.  This is often messy.  That's just the way breakups are.  Telling people it is wrong or stupid to leave when they don't like how they are treated is not helpful, does not typically stop them from leaving, doesn't make the relationship better, and doesn't improve anyone's understanding of what a healthy relationship looks like.  If you don't like it, you can leave.  But understand, it's probably going to be a mess and you may lose a lot in the process. 

More and more countries in the European Union are feeling unhappy with their union.  Either the union fixes its shit, or a lot more are going to leave.  Since people don't all want the same things, it is impossible to make them all happy enough to stay.  This is a problem.  Much of it is based on totally obvious mistakes that I and a few other people pointed out from the very beginning (e.g. a half-assed union is wholly doomed) while others arise from recent developments (e.g. a flood of refugees driving berserk nationalism).  Good luck fixing any of that.

So we're making a goatloaf and honey beans today.  These require a chopped onion.  We're bagging my half of the onion for later, when the fairies start trying to grab the baggie.  Having fairies is like having invisible toddlers and kittens.  

Doug had the brilliant idea to put a few bits of onion in a bowl and set it in the fairy window.  Sure, that's worth a try.

"Okay, you asked for it."



"EEEEEE hothothot EEEEEE!!!"

I laughed my ass off.  <3 sadistic humor.

We went to see The House with the Clock in Its Walls. It's a great movie if you like the kiddie genre of creepy movies. Great special effects. Some pretty clever magical stuff. The level of violence is stylized, spooky slapstick and crude juvenile humor. Hilarious banter between characters. They actively celebrate weirdness and negotiate its relation to wider society.  Now on to the really good stuff, which contains some spoilers ...

I was amused to see that at least one of the items listed as a fictional food is real, and from the description, the same as the original. Can you tell which one it is?

Metheglin is mead made with herbs and spices, often for medicinal purposes.

Oh, and the Scooby Snacks? Are pretty obviously hash shortbread, if you know stoners.

The Giant Ribs from the end credits of The Flintstones are another gimme. Chickens are dinosaurs, therefore it's one of the few "exotic" foods that would literally taste like chicken.

 ... surprisingly apt and relevant.

Also, just because someone deserves to die is no reason to be a boor about it.  You can be polite and still put him out of everyone's misery.
