Atomic Tarantula — Some very cool sf-themed wear.

Autoportraits — Finding expression in unlikely places. This is fairly amusing.

Honeywell’s Kitchen Computer remembered — A idea whose time never came, apparently. Still, there’s something wistful about this. (Thanks to danjite.)

Baconed yams — One of my favorite recipes in quite a while, courtesy of cthulhie, whom I don’t actually know, AFAIK. Worth the read just for the cooking instructions. Mmmm, bacon.

20 things to do with a haggis — Unintentional (I think) multicultural humor from the online archives of The Times. (Thanks to Scrivener’s Error.)

Poll riots erupt in Nigerian city — I spent my freshman year of high school (1978-1979) at a missionary boarding school in this city. (Thanks to my brother.)

?otD: Do you have Prince Albert in a can?

In fact, I almost edited the joke to the modern NSFW usage...

AotD: The can is empty. There is no Prince Albert. But he's _on_ the can....

The Baconed Yams recipe reminds me that on Thanksgiving Father of M. decided to "tweak" the traditional holiday green been casserole recipe and added (wait for it) bacon. It was not bad, but neither was it what was expected. There was some raising of eyebrows.

AotD: Well, then, hadn't you better let him out?
