Thank you, btw, thank you thank you all of you who put in orders and gave donations last week. it helped, and you’re the awesomest.
Had a pleasant weekend. Saturday I refueled my eyes by going (with mygirlfriend) for a brief trip down to the Albany Institute of Art & History (although their collection wasn’t really to our taste). Sunday I worked on house projects. Built a screen out of wod scraps and mesh for our skylight, re-strung all the chimes in our old wind chime, stained legs for our couch, glued together chairs, gessoed a canvas. That sort of thing.
For all (any?) of you fantasy writers out there, Sophia McDougal (of Romanitas) wrote a brilliant post on tips for making your fantasy book better. I am still giggling.
Oh, and, if any of you had any questions in your head about Star Wars making any sense, there’s finally a video explaining WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
And now I feel like a burger. Please don’t let cows be sentient aliens trapped in a modified uncommunicative form by a second alien.
Because then I’ll feel bad while eating.
Mic, I hope you don’t like bandersnatch burgers. (Niven reference.) And don’t think about what eventually had to happen to the Skrull cows.
Yeah, they fell into the hands of an overrated British comic book writer who subsequently did to the X-Men pretty much what gets done to the Furryites. You know that had to hurt.
All IMHO, of course.
A furryite is a pig is a cow is a dog is a girl….
Dang it, now I’m craving a furryite burger too. And I don’t even know what they taste like!
This from the psycho killer girl. So she never ate any meat? You have to kill plants to eat too lady.
Boy she sure looks cute. Just disarm her first.
Coyote, you don’t eat bandersnatch, they eat you.
@Night-Gaunt, she has eaten meat, she’s simply reacting to the horror of the process.
How much to put a bunch of these little buggers loose in overcrowded prisons?
Crestlinger, Hahahahahah! oh goodness, that’s one of the most horrible things I’ve heard all day. 🙂
How much to put a bunch of these little buggers loose in all corporate headquarters?
Fur Burgers, my favorite. Wook, wook, wookie!
@Christopher & Night-Gaunt, reminds me of the reactions when some of the Hmong refugees first came to Iowa back in the late 70’s. Some of them didn’t believe that the white pasty stuff in the plastic was actually chicken.
And of course, when I was in grade school it was accepted as fact that by this time, we’d all be getting our food from concentrates and pills. Or we’d be eating Syntheti-Beef, made from algae and yeast cakes with that special secret sauce of spices and fungi mixed in to give it that hmm-mmm home-grown taste.
Remember: Soylent Green is people! Try some today!
That is funny Muzhik. Yes. People should try that!
I have discovered footage thought to have been lost that counters the Luke Change theory!
Chalk it all up to standard government incompetence!
Maybe the “Syntheti-Beef” discussion should be moved over to Cookrookery. Spacetrawlers is more of an “I Still Want My Flying Car” sort of webcomic.
But the question is – WILL IT BLEND!? (The answer is yes.)
I notice that the word blend has no “o” sound, so that means it’s being translated INTO the word blend.
I like to believe his word for blend is making the sound a blender makes. “WOOOOOOROSHKLSHELSHKLJHSE”
I can not believe that the oxymoron which is “Humane Slaughter” has transcended Earth.
Those poor furryites 🙁
Am I the only one who thinks the word “humane” wouldn’t really be the term used by non-humans?
@Jerkwallace, it’s the translater chip, translating the words into earth words. 🙂
