I have apparently won the Criggo zombie contest — Braaaiiiins.

Dial-Up Modem Noises Slowed Down — Ok, this is cool. Haunting memories, so to speak. (Thanks to [info]willyumtx.)

Cosmos & Culture: A Review

Haunting Moon Photo: Shadows Loom Over Huge Lunar Crater — (Via Chris Johnson.)

A hole-punch cloud — An awesome photo from NPR. (Thanks to [info]scarlettina.)

Most asinine Beatles song ever? — The Beatles and taxes. As far as paying taxes goes, I kind of like living in a civil society myself, with roads and bridges and fire departments and schools. (Via Steve Buchheit.)

Bachmann Trail Blazes New Path for Conservative Women on Feminism

Roger Ailes' Secret Nixon-Era Blueprint for Fox News — Yep. Definitely fair and balanced. (Snurched from @twilight2000.)

Chicago Pride Parade marches on after tires slashed on 51 floats — More principled conservative action on the subject of marriage equality, I see. Nothing like reasoned debate from an objective perspective to .. Damn, I can't write that with a straight face.

?otD: Would you rather hunt snipe or snark?

Hunting snark, for sure. Barbecued snark tastes better!

Huuh. For some reason the first link directs me back to whatever page I'm viewing this journal entry on--my friends page, or after I clicked to your journal, this same page. I'm a little puzzled.

I found it on a google search, but what is the contest? There's no explanation.

Sabotaging the Chicago Pride parade just backfired. All that meant was the two-hour event stretched to nearly 5 hours. People danced and played music while the floats were being fixed.

It's a fundamental tax question. I believe this county once had a 96% top marginal rate. The only people who ever paid that were people for home 4% of their income was still more than anyone else saw. Really, it's "how much is enough"? And that question applies whether the tax rate is 96% or 4%, It's only a matter of degree.

Snipe, definitely. With snarks, sometimes you load up with railway shares and bathing machines and they still turn out to be boojums.
