Tweet of the Day, Was The Bear Wearing A Hat? edition

You can always trust a bear wearing a hat.

This is actually close to a no-fooling rule of thumb for me. If bears ever achieve sapience, they would be well advised to get a variety of hats and start wearing them while ostentatiously not eating people’s faces. Boom! Instant societal acceptance. Because who wouldn’t to be buddies with a nine foot ursine with a hat who won’t eat your face?

I feel that my logic is sound.

Gonna be cold tomorrow.

I was ignoring it, because I didn’t think that it’d be too bad here in Maryland. But apparently they’re talking two to four inches tomorrow night. Which means that they’re talking about mass hysteria and lunacy Wednesday, so I should pop over to the supermarket tomorrow morning and grab some stuff before the rampaging mobs come and buy up all the brown rice.

…Look, I don’t get it, either. It’s not really any less expensive than rock salt, I think. It’s certainly not the first thing I’d pick for emergency food if I was worried that the power would go out, either.

Stay safe, folks. Gonna be cold this week, too.

Test of this Stupid Gutenberg thing.

Because WordPress decided to mess around with this and hasn’t even given me the option to not use it.

…OK, I will not have to manually choose paragraph every time I need a new paragraph. I can keep going. This eliminates the most glaring reason why I might have to say ‘Welp, I need a new site editor.’

Tweet of the Day, Have You Talked To Your Kids About Caracals? edition.

This thread is weird enough that I wish that *I* had written it.

Got a cough? Eat some chocolate.

As I said on Facebook, THE SCIENCE IS SETTLED: “A research group from Hull University in England randomly prescribed more than 160 patients either regular cough medicine or a chocolate-based medicine.  Patients on the chocolate-based medication reported improving more quickly than those on regular cough syrup.”  I mean, sure, in seven years or so they’ll come back and tell you that chocolate isn’t good for a cough after all.  But that’s, like, seven years or so from now, man.  In the meantime you’ve got SCIENCE to back your play.

Hrm. I should probably go and make sure that I prevent a cough.  Yes, that would be smart and healthy of me, for certain.

Snow day!

They closed the schools, they closed the rest of the federal government in DC, and it’s been a free and easy morning of pancakes and bacon.  And now comes the time of the clean-stuff-up.  It was even a respectable amount of snow, too.

So… open thread, I guess.  Not that I really have closed ones.

She’s the one who speaks Old English in the family*.

Only, now I want a proper NY/NJ slice.

The Time of Madness is almost upon this land!

…That’s right; it’s going to snow here this weekend, and I expect everybody around me to lose their goram minds over it. Like they do. What makes it worse, of course, is that I should have gone grocery shopping today. Tomorrow’s going to be amazingly chaotic, over at the supermarket. Whee!

Still, first snow of the year. Coolness.

Tweet of the Day, Don’t Do This, Dammit edition.

This is just dumb.

More to the point, it’s dumb that puts people who are not being dumb at risk.  I have to drive on the same road with you.  So don’t try to drive with your eyes closed; you will be, by definition, Doing It Wrong.

Well, the tenth anniversary of MoeLane.com is SOME time this week.

I’m not exactly sure when the first true post was (as in, not imported from another site).  I think that it was maybe on the 12th?  But I dunno.  It’s definitely this month and week, at least.

It’s been a fun ride so far, folks.  Thanks for coming along for it. (more…)
