Figure we're only about 3 years away from homemade drones completely ruining the Thanksgiving parade.
Few remember how far ahead of the times Schulz was (by at least 7 years, relative to The Far Side in this case)
The end of “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”. My eyes, widening in horror, affix on Woodstock. He eats. The ritual is complete.
Remember: If you camp out for a tv, you're a good consumer. If you camp out for social justice, you're a dirty hippie and will be maced.
I just realized that you can totally watch Doctor Who in whatever order you want.
window.onerror = window.close;
For that native feel.
I made a new tumblr to track the stupidest trend on the web: tabcloseddidntread.com
To be clear, this is the best news we could have hoped for right now. This means we can keep fighting to save her. So relieved right now.
MRI as clear as possible. Onward to chemotherapy.
Also, Twitter encourages some serious vocabulary use if you want to try to get a complex idea into a single tweet.
You can tell how deep our collective apophenia runs by the way language enforces the illusion of agency in the insensate.

Super helpful when have to stick to free fonts!
I used to stick with shows while they got going, but time is much too limited for that. Maybe I can try again when I’m retired.
Lots of responses that Korra gets good in the second season. Sounds great for anyone willing to slog through to that point, which I’m not.
This is actually a real thing that will soon exist in our world. Well played, @GeorgeTakei amazon.com/gp/product/B00…

My rooting for the Equalists actually has nothing to do with Korra, who I don’t mind, and everything to do with my egalitarian instincts.
I recently started watching “Legend of Korra” on Amazon Prime; four episodes in, I’m kinda rooting for the Equalists. Am I doing it wrong?
Every system is optimized for something.
MRI tomorrow morning; results tomorrow afternoon. And then we’ll see.
I have never believed children are perfect, mine or anyone’s, but they’re still uniquely, heartbreakingly beautiful.
So many people who celebrate death, who revel in and gloat over it. I can’t even begin to understand their pain.
There are people who will be sad to learn this was a hoax, and should seriously think about choosing another path: gunssavelives.net/blog/report-of…
I suddenly want three Sonic chili dogs with mustard and onions for dinner. Is that so wrong?
I’m still not getting used to the Big! Huge! Skinny! Font! used for individual tweets in the iOS 6 (not 7, 6) Twitter client.
I’m gonna define a bunch of iOS keyboard shortcuts that convert complete names to their acronyms and vice versa. #infinitesubloop
My Twitter stream got all quiet about half an hour ago. I presume it will erupt in about 20 minutes. Just remember: no spoilers, sweetie.
“The Snowflakes and Dead Leaves Are Dancing Together” is the name of my next children’s book, assuming @neilhimself
doesn’t write it first.
This is exactly my kind of nerdery: stavros.io/posts/winning-…
(I did very similar things to Cookie Clicker.)
From now on I'm mentally replacing every instance of 'Breaking News' with "What Happen?!??"
Wait a minute…is CNN purposely referencing All Your Base? pic.twitter.com/PmSokjMeBc
I wonder what people assume about a household that gets mail addressed to “Dr. and Mr. Smithfield”.
Fun fact: Best place to get a free tent is outside of BestBuy right after the doors open on Black Friday.
The Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, written by Thomas Jefferson in 1777, is worth reading slowly and in full. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_…
We're fortunate to be able to care for my son, but I think every day of parents who love their kids just as much & simply don't have access.
Which is weird, because it’s actual history—something I had thought the History Channel had given up on, much the way MTV gave up on music.
I figured someone was going to “live-tweet” the JFK assassination, and it turns out @HISTORY
has already started on that.
On the other hand, I feel like the “Write” icon is nicer, with the little details on it. I assume that means it hasn’t changed at all.
There is a new, jarring font (size?) shift in the Twitter iOS client under iOS 6. /cc @stop @mikeindustries pic.twitter.com/1lMSjMiZf3
The contrasts between Normal Life and Cancer Life are so extreme, they can cause physical dizziness.
George Zimmerman has become a living Rorschach test. I wonder how many more tests he will present to us.
