Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Linkee-poo clears the baffles

Not enough time to actually look at things on the web. Wish I could say it was because of writing, but because of the day thing and the PTO thing, and the reboot thing. I used to have a life.

Scott Siglar says, keep your damn audiobooks rights. For reasons. For lots of little, green(ish) reasons. (Grokked from John Scalzi who is name dropped)

Google hiding messages on their lcd screens. (Grokked from Dan)

Some KickStarter tips. (Grokked from John Scalzi)

Fox News wants you to know, no fatties. Apparently because some overweight kids aren't ashamed of themselves for being overweight, the anorexics of the world must be upset. (Grokked from Seanan McGuire)

Human trafficking, slave labor and squalid conditions only happen overseas, not in our Shiny Citadel of Capitalism. "An Alabama company has agreed to a $20 million settlement and admitted that workers it brought from India to rebuild oil rigs after Hurricane Katrina were deceptively recruited and then forcibly corralled in squalid, overcrowded camps." Oh fuck. (Grokked from Morgan J Locke)

Some science deniers are thinking that New Horizons' mission to Pluto was faked. I mean, if we really are all in a holographic projection being made that simulates the universe and convinces us we live in a time-forward, 4D space, sure. Like "Everything Is Awesome", in that universe "Everything Is Faked." But… wait, what were we talking about? (Grokked from Dan)

Indian pipe. The parasitic plant that I have in my back yard (flashes back to Day of the Triffids).

Trump as stealth candidate. That's an interesting theory you've go there, Sparky. So, how do you explain his 2008 and 2012 performance? (Grokked from Dan)
