  1. Comic for Monday, Nov 27, 2023

    In-world, no telling. Meta, yes she'll get to Moperville, probably pretty quickly. Unless most or all of the Main 8/10/however-many suddenly decide to go to college in some other ONE city, then she'll show up there - but that seems unlikely.
  2. What Are You Ingesting?

    The RV park we're in did a pot-luck. We brought deviled eggs and cranberry sauce. Deviled eggs, I did a half-dozen eggs in each of three varieties. Regular with pickle relish, spicy, and curry. (I put signs on the latter two.) There were none left to bring home afterward. My lady mixed some cinnamon into the can of cranberry sauce. Someone else brought two other varieties: one plain, one with orange juice mixed in. Any one of the three containers would have been enough.
  3. Holidaze

    It's not an official index. However, it is used, in part because it's a very easy and quick test - one brief phone call per Waffle House store in the affected area.

    To be fair, the Puritans were dicks to everybody. Including each other, on the slightest excuse. The Pilgrims came for freedom of religion (or at least of various forms of Christianity - don't know if they went further than that). The Puritans had just lost a war over which version of Christianity would be mandatory for everyone in England, then learned that being refugees in Holland didn't give them the power to make their version mandatory there, and came to North America to establish a place where they could dictate everyone's religion. The first European settlers in at least two states adjacent to Massachusetts were people escaping from the Puritan regime. (I still don't understand how anyone can take seriously a cleric who preaches hatred in the name of a loving God.)

    I remember one time when we were visiting a friend, a sudden ruckus came from down their hall. Which I was in position to look down. So they asked "What's that noise?" I replied "Your cat is fighting with a box. The more intelligent one is winning." Immediate response: "Oh, poor Misty, is that box beating up on you?"

    Well, Ashley didn't sabotage it. Nanase did. By naming her double "fox".

    From the looks of it, what she's lacking - even more than power - is experience and self-confidence.

    I was thinking that a good next step would be for Susan to summon a fairydoll in Kevin's presence.
  9. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    Not impressed by the study at the "dogs and voice" link - assuming the article describes it accurately. (Which is quite an assumption.) They proved that dogs like (a) their owners and (b) the idea of going for a walk, better than they like (a) strangers and (b) discussion of what the strangers did last night. And from this data the researchers concluded that tone of voice matters.
  10. Events

    We're very carefully avoiding being too close to the path of totality for a few days before & after - just at the time of year when we're heading south for the winter. In western Utah, sites I found recommended being based no further north than Salt Lake - that's if you DO want to see the eclipse - so we're spending the weekend about 50 miles north of Salt Lake and some distance off the freeway and into the mountains. Our normal migration pattern, we would have been spending tonight & tomorrow night pretty much dead center for totality - those being the two nights it would be most difficult to find a space in an RV park, and that being the absolute least likely area to find one. Monday night should be a lot easier. If we could have scheduled the whole thing, maybe three months ago, we might have taken a different approach. But there are reasons that wasn't feasible for us.
  11. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    As we pulled into an RV park this afternoon, I saw four adult women and three children (the oldest about 6, I think) trying to catch a dog. Who was wearing a harness and leash. The dog, on the other hand, was playing chase with them and having a heck of a lot of fun. The dog came running up to me, so I tried to grab the leash. Touched it, but couldn't get a grip before the dog was off teasing someone else. So I went over and laid on the grass. After a bit the dog noticed me there and came running over. A little too fast, couldn't stop in time, stomped on my hand as it went by. But then it came back and started licking my face. So I grabbed the leash and stood up. And then picked my glasses up off the ground, as the dog had knocked them off me. And handed the leash off to one of the ladies. They were impressed by the trick. One I've used a few times before, and never had it not-work with a dog that was friendly with strangers and enjoying itself.

    Why do you think the German government can give permission to immigrate into Sweden? Getting out of Germany probably would have been tricky, but to then legally be in Sweden they'd need approval of Sweden's government, not Germany's. And it can be gotten after the fact - go there, promptly notify local authorities that you're there and why.
  13. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    Please, stop the insults already. The people you're referring to here don't need to enter the country illegally - they can claim refugee status and ask for asylum.
  14. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    I was referring to walls around properties or housing developments. Walls with no razor wire, no monitoring cameras, no patrolling security folks... I believe it was documented that Trump's walls were encouraging illegal immigrants to cross the border at other places, where there were no walls yet. Ya know, a gate across the path doesn't keep people out if they can just walk around it because it's a standalone gate with no fence or other barrier in sight - but that doesn't mean an actual fence won't keep people out. But I doubt that a completed wall, even with adequate security patrols, would have had sufficient effect to be worth the expense, as long as we continue to reward people for entering the country illegally. And we've done even more of that since Trump left office than we were doing before he was elected - because the Democrat and Republican leadership keep cutting deals where we'll increase those rewards now, in exchange for a promise to think about tightening immigration rules later.
  15. Discussion of Military, real or fictional

    The dynasty that built the wall between China proper and Manchuria was the one before the Manchurian dynasty. That appears to be the pattern for several other segments of the Great Wall. The surprising thing, though, is how many people who claimed that Trump's proposed wall would do no good, live in properties with walls around them.
