We Watched “48 Hours” Last Night

First time I’ve seen that movie in many, many years.

My god, it’s simply terrible.

Why was this such a Big Thing in the 80s?

I mean, it’s really really bad.

Pope Francis Should Come To New York Every Friday

The city was so deserted it only took my bus 18 minutes to go from Battery Park through the Holland Tunnel into Jersey City.

It normally takes 45.

Quote Of The Day

From Allahpundit:

“Give me a scenario where Miss Piggy makes a joke about getting waxed and somehow afterward you don’t end up staring into a dimly lit bathroom mirror wondering why you ever stopped drinking.”

Who Knew?

There’s a lot of territory between “no war with Russia” and “Putin is your friend ” it seems to me.
These people are nucking futs.

Life With A 21-Yr-Old

Backstory: The power adapter on Daughter’s laptop is fraying, so being the Concerned Father that I am I texted her about getting her a new one…

(verbatim transcription of the messages)

Bingley: You have the 15 MacBook Pro right? 2012?

Daughter: Not sure but I think so yeah

Daughter: Pretty Sure

Bingley: Do you have it in front of you?

Daughter: I am out drinking actually

Bingley: Haha much better!

No Word Yet On Choking

CDC: Don’t kiss your chicken

The CDC put out a warning asking chicken owners not to snuggle or kiss their birds for fear of contracting salmonella.

Gerbil Warmening causes a glacier to, um, grow

From NOAA Earth Observatory: Since measurements began in 1895, Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier has been thickening and steadily advancing into Disenchantment Bay. The advance runs counter to so many thinning and retreating glaciers nearby in Alaska and around the world.

…According to Leigh Stearns, a glaciologist at the University of Kansas, Hubbard’s advance is due to its large accumulation area; the glacier’s catchment basin extends far into the Saint Elias Mountains. Snow that falls in the basin either melts or flows down to the terminus, causing Hubbard to steadily grow. In addition, Hubbard is building up a large moraine, shoveling sediment, rock, and other debris from Earth’s surface onto the glacier’s leading edge. The moraine at the front gives the glacier stability and allows it to advance more easily because the ice does not need to be as thick to stay grounded. (If it is thin, it can start floating and will not necessarily advance.)

But of course, Gentle Readers, savvy types that you are you already knew all about this.
