Tweet of the Day, Write Better Math Questions edition.

It’s the ‘Really?’ that grates. Yes, really. It’s not the kid’s fault that the wording of that particular question is hideously flawed.  That’s all on the teacher, who should have either known better, or used a better set of questions.

Tweet of the Day, Never Underestimate Star Wars Fans’ Obsession edition.

This is actually from a few days ago, but I’ve been sick. Still… you gotta assume that you can be seen from the air, these days.  And that somebody has both the time and the need to pore over satellite photos until they can find what you’ve hidden.

Here endeth the lesson.

Tweet of the Day, I Think That I Would Have Liked Reginald Tippin edition.

At least I assume Reginald Tippin’s dead.

If he’s still alive he’d be 88.  Unless he’s some kind of revenant. In which case… well, it’s not like he didn’t warn his enemies, hey?

Other Tweet of the Day, Danged If Clickhole Didn’t Do Some Art Here edition.

Sorry about the bad word, but this Tweeter’s got a point there. This paragraph does its job. That’s all you can ask for, sometimes.

Tweet of the Day, These Are Legit Life Skills edition.

Totally.

Full link here, and I plan to use some of these techniques the next time I’m at a county fair or whatnot.  Which should be more and more often, now that the children are older and can be cajoled into having a good time.  Being able to win at one or another of these games should prove useful when it comes to Dad Points.

Tweet of the Day, This Is The Coolest Thing I’ve Seen Today edition.

Also, the most nerve-wracking.  I mean, you only get one shot at making something like this.  Mess it up, and there’s no way to fix it.

You also have to wonder if the guy who made it ever actually used it. Probably; they didn’t have much margin, back then. But it’s one of those artifacts that you know had extra care lavished on it.

Tweet of the Day, This Looks Interesting edition.

Although the tacit ‘we’ve got all the science fiction and fantasy we can stomach already’ warning is a problem, I guess. Still, it’s maybe paying work?
