  1. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    Swiped from another forum's discussion of "designer dogs" (aka overpriced mutts):
  2. Other Random Comics

    Pepper&Carrot updated for the first time this year - but it's 8 comic-book pages of high quality art (which is about normal for that comic, both in update size and update frequency).
  3. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    My bet is it will turn out weird. Details to be determined.
  4. The Tacos of Yesteryear

    A taco from 1831 wouldn't look nearly that fresh.
  5. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    What puzzles me is how demonizing anyone that suggests an election may be lacking in integrity, while publicly opposing any effort to insure election integrity, is supposed to persuade people to have faith in election integrity.
  6. What Are You Ingesting?

    In this specific case, the absence of capsaicin.
  7. Cats, Dogs, Other pets.

    No outfit is complete without cat hair.
  8. What Are You Ingesting?

    There was some variety of sauce, wish I could remember the name, that I tried once and reviewed as follows: "A hot sauce with no heat, used to flavor food but it has no flavor. Why does this exist?"
  9. GAAH! What an awkward sentence! But you're doing it to avoid ending a sentence with a preposition, which had been perfectly acceptable for several hundred years - until it was prohibited less than 200 years ago because English is derived from Latin (it isn't) and ending a sentence with a preposition isn't even possible in Latin (it is both possible and grammatical, but only in certain sorts of usage). And in spite of this silly misguided prohibition, great writers kept on doing it anyway.
  10. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    You do NOT want to take a hefty diuretic dose without potassium! My dad had not been informed of this, so he went a few days without the potassium (until he was planning to go into town anyway). As he was walking across the street to the pharmacist, suddenly the curb in front of him appeared to grow about three feet higher. So he sat down on it - by feel - and a few minutes later the pharmacist came out to ask him what was going on... helped him get inside and on a chair, had him take ALL the potassium pills he'd missed, and then wouldn't let him leave for a couple hours. It's just an amazingly good thing that Dad's eyes didn't go wonky any earlier... like as he was driving... But... IV potassium is surely at least as effective as pills. (It definitely all gets into your bloodstream, which is the first step to getting it everywhere else.)
  11. Pennsic

    Just so long as it isn't XLAX. Of course, it could just be IL.
  12. Comic for Monday, July 18, 2022

    (The subject line for this thread appears to be lost at C.)
  13. The Weather.

    Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park was declared fully open on July 13 this year. The opening was delayed because of excessive snow and continued bad weather, including a bit of a snowstorm about a week earlier. It has opened on July 13 on two previous occasions: 2020 due to the Covid pandemic, and 2011 due to excessive snow. Normally it opens in June, occasionally in May. The only later official opening day was the very first official opening, on July 15 1933. On that occasion there was a dedication ceremony with various visiting officials and dignitaries, so it had to be scheduled well in advance - and it would have been embarrassing to have to delay it due to snow, so they scheduled the ceremony late enough they could be near-certain the road would be open. In fact, it had been open for four days already - since July 11. (The norm is that they officially say "it will be open no earlier than..." until the day they say "it's open".) (I wish I could find what date it opened in 1934 or 1935 - the first opening days clearly not altered by the needs of public ceremony.)
  14. Things That Are Just Annoying

    We keep a 2.5-gallon water dispenser in the fridge, and next to it is a gallon jug of water. Because we like drinking COLD water - and on days like today (93 degrees Fahrenheit at 5 PM) we go through a lot of it. When the dispenser is low (under about 1.25 gallons) we dump the jug into it and then refill the jug, so the water in the dispenser is always COLD.
  15. Deep Thoughts

    French: window glass and eyeglasses are feminine, drinking glasses and bulletproof glass are masculine. Spanish: eyeglasses are feminine, the others are masculine (but the window itself, the whole thing, is feminine). I couldn't think of a way to ask about the condition of being an extremely-viscous liquid pretending to be a solid - window glass, lollipops, et cetera - that chemists and materials engineers refer to as "glass".
  16. Deep Thoughts

    Opportunist: Glass will be empty in just a moment.
  17. Patreon Jul 8 / Sketchbook Jul 9 2022

    I'm sorry, but when each boob is bigger around than the head or the waist, it just doesn't work for me. Not sexy. Not cute. Not intriguing. Uncanny-valley fail.
  18. The Weather.

    Oh, hail! Some of it up to the diameter of a quarter. Combined with very heavy rain.
  19. Things that go bang

    Maybe he's been O-7 a couple times in the past...
  20. NP Comic for Thursday, Jul 7, 2022

    The version I heard had X being an unknown.
  21. Patreon Jul 1 / Sketchbook Jul 2 2022

    Literally, no. Squirrels are known to eat pretty much anything that is high in protein and often found in trees. This includes nuts, bugs, small lizards, baby birds, and bird eggs.
  22. Deep Thoughts

    A butterfly tree?
  23. Comic for Monday, Jul 4, 2022

    There was a mid-ocean rift that produced a bunch of typical ocean-floor rock... and then stopped, about a billion years ago. The known portion of ocean floor it produced runs from about the middle of Kansas up to take in roughly Lake Superior, then turns south through the middle of Michigan's Lower Peninsula and ends a bit west of Detroit. https://usgs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=dc2e783552b84ed8957cb8d2dfac235e#
  24. Mass shooting in Copenhagen

    "As soon as men decide that all means are permitted to fight an evil, then their good becomes indistinguishable from the evil that they set out to destroy." - Christopher Dawson “Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.” - Friedrich Nietzsche (and I know of a fictional character who was described as having won that staring contest...)

    Well, I'll agree they don't seem to be connected to the dress... can't tell whether they are connected to the wings.
