Freedom In Peril

This NRA tract is pretty awesome. Stock up on ammo now or else Rosie O’Donnell, some hippy farmer chick with a bomb-carrying owl and a land-lobster for companions, the black helicopter people and America’s minority communities are going to do something really naughty to you. Kidding aside, the illustrations in the piece are really good. […]

Happy Holidays: your house just burned down

Follows is a from CLV. Yesterday morning at 3 am, the house where my friends Legion and Crickett (and their housemate Soonie) burned to the ground.

Turning in to your parents

I’m at that age where I and many of my friends have finally figured out that we’re more or less going to turn in to our parents. I don’t think that this is good or bad so much as it is more or less inevitable and at least mildly funny. Zefrank provides useful perspective on […]

Suspected Web Forgery

This image would be a lot funnier if I didn’t go over to http://news.google.com/ and get the same error message. I wonder what’s up.

H3: The environmental choice

SvN links to and discusses a study regarding the environmental cost of different cars. The original article discusses the energy cost per mile to build different cars and concludes, amongst other things, that the Hummer H3 takes less of an environmental toll than a Honda Civic Hybrid. And while many consumers and environmentalists have targeted […]
