Hippalectryon, weirdest mythical creature ever?
We are at 606 at the Mozfest in London. Come say hi and learn how to use Popcorn Maker.
Only in the west village would w4th and w13th intersect
My favorite is still the two blocks that make up Little West 12th Street, which are four blocks away from, and do not connect to, West 12th Street.
I like how 4th Ave only exists for a few blocks now, because people wanted to say they lived on Park Avenue well south of where the park stopped. At least that’s how I assume that happened.
Nautilus Cup: Hunter and Eagle’s Claw Foot, around 1580-1610
Only powerful friars and landowners were invited to drink from the alchemist’s cup when the bloodwine was poured.

I know horses can do really awesome stuff like dressage (which is really awesome, and has a history dating back thousands of years to when battles were fought on horseback, and people needed their horses to be able to side-step away from swords, spin around in place, and remain calm in the midst of insane brutality) but are they actually smart? I’m not convinced.
Show me a horse a dolphin a pig and a dog doing the same problem-solving, and I’ll bet that the horse loses. Jazz sax, on the other hand, comes to horses preternaturally.
Oldie but a goodie.
8% defense cut FTW.
8% down, 42% left to go.
Not to be a downer, but the “cuts” that are going around are actually increases. The 8% cut is actually just 8% less than the projected increase. Some nice double talk from both sides help to confuse the issue. This isn’t a partisan he-said she-said thing, it’s just an unfortunate fact.
Republicans can bitch that Obama is “cutting” defense, when in reality he is not.
Democrats can tout that they are “cutting” defense, when in reality they are not.
Plenty of documentation of this. Here’s a sort of overview from an admittedly partisan source.
Inside all of us there is a little of this drunk guy singing “Kiss From A Rose” to his terrified cat.
I was almost there last night.
Found this guy in /images.
