I don't think it's okay, but I think it's inevitable. It's a result of a world where people are too short-sighted to vote for taxes that fund their own public services. So utilities and fire departments resort to charging fees. And when people don't pay their fees? They get no services. I was actually happy to see this fire, ONLY because I hope it gets people talking about the mentality of wanting everything yet paying nothing.

Lady Gaga's outfits are good enough to eat. Middle aged women have better memories than men - but not by much, baby. Not by much. Let's say you're Warner Bros., and you have tons of movie film and television videotape... Continue reading

Today's Fark photoshop challenge: drop superheroes into different franchises. They had me at Hello Spock. Clement Freud tells his funniest joke. (mildly NSFW, as most of the best jokes are, let's face it.) The greatest movies, summed up as infographics... Continue reading

I've been keeping up with you through the various outlets over Christmas break, and my heart goes out to you. It's like a transition time for everybody. I'm sure your thoughtful attitude will help you both come out the other side as friends.

I love it. When my daughter was in fourth grade, it seemed a shame to have her merely construct a mission from a prefab kit at Michael's, so in January we took a 3-day road trip to see a few up close and in person. It was a trip that meant a lot to us both (but probably for different reasons). Mission Impossible sounds like one of those non-holidays that family hotel chains could capitalize on.

What stormtroopers do on their day off. These are inspiring. Suddenly I want to borrow some of my nephew's action figures, and head outdoors with the good camera. Two Bangledeshi newspapers printed an Onion article as fact. Regrow or repair... Continue reading
