Farewell to the American Century →
Americans have perpetuated a mythic version of the past that never even approximated reality and today has become downright malignant.
Purell /= washing your hands
The security guard at the gate apparently had an argument this morning with a nurse that her washing her hands wasn’t good enough, so she must use the Purell. Mmm, mmm, stupid. The hospital admin is freaking out a bit I think because there were two cases of oink flu in the hospital. I’m moving from minorly to moderately annoyed.
Nevada brothel woos Blagojevich for its own... →
notthatkindagay: Rod Blagojevich has yet another offer to be on reality TV. But instead of eating bugs in some tropical jungle, he’d be selecting prostitutes in the Nevada desert. The Moonlight BunnyRanch, a legal brothel located outside Reno, Nev., has offered the impeached, ousted and indicted former Illinois governor an apprenticeship, where Blagojevich “would assist with hiring ladies in...
Enchanted? That’s a good one.– President Obama responding to the question of what has most “enchanted” him about the office he now holds.
Obama, stop dancing around the water boarding question from Jake Tapper. It’s torture, you’ve said it, now please answer the question if you think the last administration violated international law.

That moment of recognition
I had to stop by the store after I swerved and Tokyo-drifted my way home because my cat needs food to live or something. I also decided to pick up some Vitamin Water because I’m a hypocrite (I always said I’d never support anything involving 50 Cent, but a sale at Jewel apparently trumps my principles). As I’m heading down the aisle the store sound system starts to play...
Ensue Local Panic
9 cases of flu de jamon in Chicago. 1 case in a 25 year old man in Lakeview. May the panic commence, I’ll just say inside like I always do and not notice what’s going on. In the mean time a study has come out that says 1,700 people could get Swine Flu in the US. Totally time to panic. As the article states: In four weeks, around 1,700 Americans could be infected with the...

New Hampshire Senate passes gay marriage bill →
notthatkindagay: The New Hampshire State Senate just passed a bill making same-sex marriage law — by a single vote, 13-11. The same bill already passed the House, and now goes to the desk of Governor John Lynch, a Democrat who has said he opposes same-sex marraige, but hasn’t said how he’d act on the legislation. Now Hampshire reports that it’s a big win for Democratic Chairman Ray Buckley,...
A '52 car pile up
I’ve decided that I’m listening to the B-52’s on the way home tonight. That means a crazy, ridiculous, car-dancing-by-myself ride home. Please stay off Lakeshore Drive between 4:00 and 5:00 if you value safe driving at appropriate speeds in the demarcated lanes.
bandwagonpete: here comes the bikini whale aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I’ve gone through periords where I have listened to alternative, screaming punk, metal, ridiculous BPM techno, and nothing, NOTHING, makes me rock out harder or more consistently than this song. Down on the floor, thrashing about, headbanging at the end. Sometimes I can’t listen to it because it wears me out.

Why can't we concentrate? →
As I was reading this article little bursts of recognition kept flooding my brain. For most people, bailing on the Web or e-mail or cellphones isn’t even feasible, let alone practical or ultimately desirable. (I shudder at the thought of living without my beloved Tivo.) Besides, modern life really isn’t making us stupider: IQ tests have to be regularly updated to make them harder;...

fatmanatee: katoleary: (via khrushchev) Me, too. Guys especially should click through and read this piece and the comment thread if you want a greater understanding of the type of shit women have to put up with on a daily basis, just for having the audacity to be female in a public space. It is gross. Just… why? I don’t even get it.
I know most people were really excited about the temperature crossing the 75 degree threshold, but the forecast for this weekend is my favorite kind of weather: sunny and highs in the low to mid 60s. Perfect. I just hope the forecast is correct. I knew I did a good thing by not installing my air conditioner last Friday.
