And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Linkee-poo went down the drain

Sorry, way to many commitments. Posting this early just to clear the baffles.

Of relation to the various political sparing matches over the Hugo, Ray Bradbury's FBI file. (Grokked from Dan and others)

Also, I will note here (since I didn't do much commentary on the blog about it) one of the supposed Cabal's leaders, John Scalzi, has been compared to modern day Robert Heinlein, one of the supposed Golden Age SF writers the puppies were all sad about because nobody can write like them and receive awards.

Curse words (bodily origin) through history. For your period correct cussing. (Grokked from Dan)

Looking for someplace to call home? I hear parts of Spain are up for sale. Cheap.

One of the things I loved about going to U of A was we got to blimps quite regularly. Including the day when four blimps flew in formation. "The last days are here to see an 'old school' Goodyear blimp in Northeast Ohio skies, perhaps forever." They're being replaced by new generations of semi-rigid airships. (Grokked from Dan)

A magnetic Eistein-Rosen Bridge. Living in the future. Although, since it requires a physical structure, I wouldn't be surprised to find this is actually due to a new novel form of conductivity (it's called the electro-magnetic spectrum for a reason). (Grokked from Emma Audsley)

"Daytona Beach city commissioners have given approval to an indoor shooting range that will include a restaurant that sells alcoholic beverages." What could possibly go wrong? (Grokked from Dan)

"The executive director for the Louisiana Republican Party said his email is a part of the Ashley Madison database because he used the cheating website for 'opposition research' that 'ended up being a waste of money and time,' according to a New Orleans newspaper." Uh, yeah, Bob. Sure. Also noted (but not linked), many official government email addresses and IP addresses were found in the database dump.

The Clinton Campaign is hit by undercover conservatives attempting to find corruption. They don't, obviously. But I'm sure with time they'll find someone who doesn't know the law that will try and be helpful. That's how these things work, probing attacks to find the weakest spot and then drive a wedge there. Unlike with the last election where what the conservative candidates actually said was what got them in trouble. (Grokked from Morgan J Locke)
