It was a glorious day for the Republic, by all accounts. So glorious that they went to the trouble of digitally remastering the footage. But, really: isn’t this what the technology should be for?
I’m just making a basic statement about reality, here. Eventually somebody’s going to shoot a missile specifically at the statue of the dog, probably because he’s been dreaming about doing it for years and all the other parts of Ashgabat are in flames anyway. It will simply happen; so I feel that this thus does not quite qualify as a political post, and as such is not over the Line.
My thanks to everyone who fought, suffered, and died so that I could grow up in a place of peace and security.
I see that map, and I see… madness. Madness, and discordance, and a world where people inexplicably think turkey gravy is its own side dish.
God help me. God help us all.
They were hoping for 60%, so this is extra-welcome news:
Continue reading Pfizer announces their vaccine is 90% effective.
Pfizer and BioNTech announced Monday their coronavirus vaccine was more than 90% effective in preventing Covid-19 among those without evidence of prior infection, hailing the development as “a great day for science and humanity.”
“I think we can see light at the end of the tunnel,” Pfizer Chairman and CEO Dr. Albert Bourla told CNBC’s Meg Tirell on “Squawk Box.” “I believe this is likely the most significant medical advance in the last 100 years, if you count the impact this will have in public health, global economy.”
Very sad news.
Jeopardy! was one of the game shows that my family regularly watched, growing up (along with Wheel of Fortune). He was a good dude and I am very sorry for his loss. My prayers for his family and loved ones.
If it’s not true, it should be. Guess there was a reason why you never heard the full song on Cheers?
(H/T: @BrianFaughnan) If they don’t come to some kind of accommodation here, then what is this guy even paying taxes for, anyway?
Read the article, and you’ll see: there is apparently an ongoing demand for geothermal-fried chicken. Yellowstone should rethink its strategy. Perhaps one of the smaller vents could be repurposed for local-retail use? I imagine that it’d be a hit with tourists, and then everybody can stay safe.
PS: Dagnabbit, now I want fried chicken for lunch.
…but when I clicked on the link I was forced to concede that, yes, this case keeps getting weirder and weirder. And, dare I say it? The elements are proving to be steadily less… savory.
Tossed this off earlier tonight. Thought I’d fix it up some.
Even if no mortal comes this night To thump up stairs with chill delight And knock on doors to claim their prize With breathy laughs and ritual cries... For even if no life-warm hands Reach out to make happy demands, We still will have sweet bounty here: The Pact we keep, so do not fear. Come, ye spooks and ghosts in flight, Attend, you children of the night: Do not weep, lonely. Take your due; For at this House, we welcome you.
