Tweet of the Day, I’ve Never Actually Read The Right To Arm Bears… edition.

…so this contest is actually rather quite handy.  On the other hand: the more people that join up, the harder my chances of winning a copy. On the gripping hand: if one of my regulars wins a copy because I pointed this out… well, that’ll be cool, too.

Tweet of the Day, There Is An Adventure Seed In This Somewhere edition.

I just don’t quite have it yet, that’s all. But it’s got to be something different. Wild West/Dr. Moreau hybrid, maybe?

Tweet of the Day, It’s Good To Imagine Their Faces edition.

Specifically: the project is to imagine what people who expect you to make them art for free must look like.  Not the people who you give art to for free, or the people who accept the art that you gave them for free: the people who feel entitled to free art. Yeah. Those people.

I should note, though: the guy who offered to pay in beer probably should not be included in this Rogues’ Gallery of Shame.  Beer has established monetary value. I’ve known more than one artist who did not object to the idea of trading some quick art for a six-pack of booze.

It’s… contraindicated.  

Contraindicated.

Tweet of the Day, TIME TRAVELERS MUST READ THIS edition.

You want to calibrate exactly when you go to eavesdrop on this drunken conversation between Arthur C Clarke, CS Lewis, and JRR Tolkien. You don’t want to get there too early. Two drinks is too soon; five drinks is too many. You want to arrive somewhere between three and four ales apiece: that’s probably the peak point for Awesome Drunken Conversations.

…What? Recording awesome stuff on the sly is the only really ethical use of time travel that I can think of. I mean, you don’t want to actually change anything, right? …RIGHT?

Tweet of the Day, This Image Strikes Me As Perfect, Somehow edition.

I’m not even sure why. It just seems very… natural, really.  If ‘natural’ means anything in this context.

Tweet of the Day, …No, He Probably Won’t edition.

When I was young I wondered why old people didn’t understand. And then I became older, and learned that they understood just fine: they simply learned that the young didn’t want to hear it.  But that doesn’t stop the occasional act of rebellion against the system:

…Yeah.  You can kind of tell when somebody’s not gonna change. Harsh, but true.

Tweet of the Day, Don’t Eat Anything Before You Look At This Optical Illusion edition.

In fact: tweet after the fold. Nothing graphic, but it can cause vertigo if you aren’t careful. And maybe even if you are.

(more…)

Tweet of the Day, HAHAHAHAHA edition.

I mean. It’s mean, but it’s funny.  And only Superman could manage to do it.

Tweet of the Day, *Awk*-ward, Indeed edition.

Never really thought about it, before.

Mind you, birds become much cooler when you realize that they’re themselves the optimized descendants of dinosaurs…

Tweet of the Day, Oh *God* But This Is So Blessed True edition.

It is, in fact, an infallible method. Heck, I suspect that it’s a retroactively infallible method. Is that madness? …Perhaps. And yet, I believe it anyway.
